MILLER REDIVIVUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 25 June 1831

MILLER REDIVIVOS. " Be is'become already a very promising Miller." Bell's Life in London. I was walking very leisurely one evening down Cripplegate, when 1 overlook-who could help overtaking him ?-a lame elderly gentleman, who, by the nature of his gait, appeared io represent the Ward. Like cer- tain lots at auctions, he seemed always go- ing, but never gone : it was that kind of march that, from its slowness, is emphati- cally called halting. Gout, in fact, had got him into a sad hobble, and, like terror, made his flesh creep. In plucking out his h.iudk« rchief from one of his capacious coat pockets, the Bandana tumbled but and with it n lar»e roll of manu- script ; and as he proceeded a good hun- dred yards before he discovered the loss, I had ample time before he struggled back, in his,Crawly Common pace* to the spot, to give tlie paper a hasty perusal, and even to make a few random extracts, , EXTRACTS FROM THE MS.

[?]NSIDERATIONS On the Measures of Finance now adopting by the Home Government, as regards this Colony. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 25 June 1831

CONSIDERATIONS   On the Measures of Finance now adopting by the Home Government, as regards       to this Colony. Among the distinguishing characteristics of the age, a system of generalising is not the least remarkable. Panaceas are   every day discovering, which because they, have proved successful in ope or two instan- ces must immediately be introduced as ge- neral remedies for all possible complaints. Whether the disorder in the constitution! arises from a want of blood or from a super abuñdáñceof it, from a raging fever or from debility, the same sovereign physic, the same cure, jpr all »ores must be applied.i And on Ibe same principle that what is good for Petet must be good for Paul, we fear have the late measures of the Home Government as regards this colony been framed. Be- cause England was in a suffering state and the burdens of the people'required imme diate alleviation, a decisive measure of finance »as r...

THE PROPRIETY Of Pauper Emigration to this Colony considered in connexion with the contemplated measures of Finance by the Home Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 2 July 1831

THE PROPRIETY JW Of Pauper Emigration to (his Colony consi- dered in connexion with' the contem- plated measures of Finance by the Home Government. Nothing appears to us more natural than that the measures now proposed for the regu- lation of,these colonies should have suggested themselves to the present authorities at home. Pledged to retrenchment in the strongest sense, and to consult pre-eminently the re lief of public distress m England, the new minister ou his accession to power, saw his desk loaded with representations (especially from Sydney) of the wonderful prosperity of these colonies, and a long list of grievances under which they laboured, conveying how- ever anything but a true picture of the real condition of the settlers. With the partial means of judging thus forced upon bim, be would naturally say to himself, ' I cannot discover, under these circumstances, why the people should complain so much of qnit-rents, but as they do so, let us sell tbe land, and apply the mo...

ADVERTISEMENT. Van Diemen'« Land, 30th June 1831. Sir, "Better late than never" is an old adage the be- nefit of which I must claim in excuse of my great remissness in not sooner fulfilling the intention I formed the moment I read your Journal of the 8th1 instant, of addressing a few lines complimentary to yourself, and congratulatory to the colony upon, the publication of a paper so obviously resting its claims to support upon pubic principles, and tbe, fearless advocacy of public rights. That I have* not earlier taken up my pen on this subject, may) be ascribed to two causes in the first place, we Settlers in these days of tiial and difficulty, find, our time so fully employed in order to make both' ends meet, and keep ourselves clear of the usurers,' that we have scarcely leasure to read, muoh less to write. In the second, I could uot doubt but that, some more able, and less occupied individual would have anticipated me in the prrformancu of the pre- sent dnty, nor indeed ^should...
