To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

To Correspondents.           We have before us so many Communications from different Correspondents, that we would fain be excused front answer-   ing their repeated inquiries why such and such letter has not   met with insertion; but want of room copels us to make one sweeping excuse in which they must all be included; that is - in dur time they shall all and every one subsequently meet with proper consideration.- There happens, however, to one morceau before us which more particularly attracts our   attention. It is a Letter signed R. G. S., who complains most bitterly of the encouragement given to Prisoner Clerks, in preference to those-favouring us with a bit of French- he most laconically calls "mal characteur!" Really, we pity the young Gentleman's unfortunate situation; but, from the present specimen; of his penmanship, his soundness of grammar and reasoning, we should be i...

Original Communications. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

                          Original Communications. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir, - the Tasmanian of last week contains a letter, ad- dressed to the Editor, signed "TRADER," upon the subject of noting of dishonoured Bills; and, as in my humble opinion the Editor's reply is not sufficiently explanatory, I beg to offer a few observations tbereon, thought the means of the Colonial Times, for the information of Mr. Trader. It is the practice of the Bankers and Merchants of London, to present (by their Clerks) the Bills they hold, as they re- spectively become due, to the Acceptor, for payment; if not pain then, or before 5 o'clock on that day, they are again pre- sented by a Notary Public, who notes the answer given to them, and returns them to the holder before the Post-office closes, that notice of non-payme...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times.   Mr. editor,- Much inconvenience is felt by the settlers at Bothwell, fro the bad state of the roads between that place and the Cross Marsh; I think a representation through your Journal would meet with attention from the Government. A settler at the Black Marsh the other day, was at least four hours, with two carts, sixteen bullocks, and sixty bushels of wheat, going the distance of two miles. The contractor for Oatlands and Brighton has disabled his bullocks before the tender was completed. I propose that a gang of men be supplied by the Government, and supported by the settlers generally, or to let them unanimously raise a small contribution for their maintenance. It would also be necessary to have a bridge erected across the Jordon, for at least six times in the year it is totally impassable for ten days together. Bothwell is now becoming a place of no small moment, and if the Den Hill and the Saddle were repaired, it would be a...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. "One word to the wise will always suffice." Sir,- Latterly I have seen some our our truly exquisite bloods. mounted on horses, evidently, from the branded crown. belonging to the Government. To how many holding situa-     ations are Government horses allowed? perhaps, Sir, you will answer that question, as I know many would like to have an explanation, but whatever excuse you may by the power of your convincing quill give to the above question, allow me to say, that the public are not to pay for horses for the use of such as may be in expectation of receiving Government situa- tions, let all your reasoning convince to the contrary if pos- sible. - I am, Sir, Too Heavily Taxed.                                 &amp...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir, - I am an old traveller, and having also frequent oc- casion to be on the road in this Colony, allow me to sug- gest to the Inspector of Roads, thought your columns, the great benefit that would be derived along the high road lead- ing from Hobart Town to the Ferries, if he were to order a few men to take their axes and fell the small wattle, and other brushwood, which every here and there grows close to       the side of the road, entirely obstructing both sun and air; otherwise the rapid growth they will be sure to make at this season of the year, will gr5eatly increase the evil, and serve to             render the road nearly impassable in some places, during the next winter.                 A few days work at present, by...

Original Communication. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION.       The early part of the history of this delightful Island is but   little known, ever since it has been discovered by Europeans, the wealth which has been here accumulated is enormous. Previous to the year 1810, the French had held possession for a very considerable period, and very long had the English desired to be better acquainted with this luxuriant and beau-   tival spot; and in 1810 the time had arrived when they thought it would be expedient, for many reasons, to ease tbe French Government of both this and the adjoining Island. When the descent was made, the English were much deceived in the strength of the place; they had always entertained an   idea that it was able to withstand the attack of very superior forces,-and they imagined also that the Town, from its situ- ition and the strength of the fortresses, would render tbe sub- jugation of the Island any thing but an ...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.   A considerable sensation has lately been produced in England, by the discovery of a human skeleton, near Oddingley, in Worcester- shire, under circumstances which leave no doubt that it was the bones of an individual who has been missing four and twenty years from that neighbourhood, and who was without doubt murdered. An investigation into all circumstances connected with the man, and with his habits of life, followed, and in the end three individuals, one of them a farmer, and the others moving in a still more respectable sphere of life, were apprehended and tried for the   murder ; but, although the evidence adduced   left no doubt that they were in some way con- nected with the man's fate, it was insufficient to convict them, and they were all acquitted.   But the circumstances which came out on the trial were extraordinary. It appears that in 1806, the Reverand Mr. Parker, the rector of Oddingley, havin...

A Simile. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 September 1830

A SIMILE.       Short is the spring - and short the summer hour - And sbort the time when fruitful autumn reigns; -       But tedious roll the days when winter's power     Asserts its empire on the wasted plains.       As swiftly wears our spring of life away As swiftly will our jolly summers go;-       But ah! when winter clouds our cheerless day,     Again the vernal breezes never blow.                 Conrad.

GOVERNMENT ORDER. (No. 9.)             Colonial Secretary's Office, Sept 9. 1830   THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR has consider- ed with anxious interest the numerous representations of the Settlers, expressive of their alarm at the increasing bold- ness of tbe Natives, and of the danger in which their lives and   property will be placed, unless, additional protection be speedily afforded by the Government.     2.-But it is vain to expect the country can be freed from incursions of the Savage tribes, which now infest it, unless the Settlers thenselves come forward, and seriously unite their best energies with those of the Government in making such a general, and simultaneous effort as the occasion de- mands. The Lieutenant Governor, therefore, calls upon every Settler, whether residing on his farm, or in a town who is not prevented by some over-ruling necessity c...
