Co <£orre0pünöeutii. We have not inserted A. Z.'s favour, because, although we wish to chastise, we are un- willing to annihilate. We are not the less obliged to him, and should be happy in his future Correspondence. <* JAQUES" will perceive that his Communi- cation is nearly comprehended in that of " TIM BOBBIN," which we this day insert: We shall however make use of the informa- tion it contains : the manuscript is* burnt, as promised.

To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 November 1825

-000 To the EDI ron of the CotosiAT. TEHEH. SIR,- A Letter," signed " Recluse," ap- peared, in the Government Gazette of last week, teeming with personal abuse and scur- rility, on the characters of the Attorney-Ge- neral, Mr. Murray, Mr. Young, and myself. Although, iii almost every instaure, the at- tacks of anonymous writers ought to be treated with that contempt which they de- serve, yet at this particular period, I think it right to offer a few remarks to the Public for their consideration. It appears, that the Author of this gross and libellous letter is afraid to sign his base production with any other than an anony- mous signature ; and indeed that of itself would imply, that he as infamously means to shelter liiinself,likea(cowardly assassin, un- der the dark veil of obscurity. No being, I should conceive,'if he possesses the feelings of a man, would secrete himself in darkness, when he makes a direct fais*» and malicious pt tack upon the private good name and pub jtc'proty...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 November 1825

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1825. lu the Government Gazette of the 22d, there was a very coarse and unmannerly allusion to   Colonel Sorell's system of Government. We ought to have noticed it in our last, because to that Gentleman, we are bound to pay, in grateful memory of his eminent public and private worth and services, the most prompt and (as far as our humble powers go) effectual attention. This, like every other subject, to which the Conductors of the Government Ga- zette refer, was a most unfortunate one. They should avoid recurring to the time of Colonel Sorell's Administration : it only ex- cites insidious comparisons and recollections, which are by no means to the advantage of the powers that be. The subject, to which Messrs. Ross, Stephen, the Clerk, the Concoctor, and Co., referred in the article to which we allude, is as to the Inquisition. The hirelings made some indirect allusion to some measure of Colonel Sorell's. Now we are enabled con- &amp...

RUNA AWAYS from MARIA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 November 1825

RUNAWAYS from MARIA ISLAND   It is with sincere regret we announce that the prisoners at this penal Settlement have already found means of escape. About ten days ago, six men, by name Craven, Mil- ler, Brown, Boswell, and two others, were sent to receive rations at the Commissariat Store, with which they escaped upon a cata- maran of bark to the main land, and yes- terday morning they robbed the messenger   of his provisions and money, near Prosser's Plains. We consider this a most lamentable occurrence ; we were in hopes that the dis- tance of Maria Island from the main, we be- lieve seven or eight miles, would have secured the men sent to that Establishment. We fear that the example of these runaways will soon be followed. The state of the Colony at this moment is most appalling ; and we hope and trust that the whole of the Settlers in the interior will follow the patriotic ex- ample of the Inhabitants in Hobart Town,   and by one simultaneou...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 November 1825

    ENGLISH NEWS. The following passage of a letter from Eng- land, of recent date, were handed over to us this week. The writer is a gentleman on whose testimony reliance may be placed. We believe that the intellectual improvement of which he speaks is owing, in good part,   to the diffusion of innumerable periodical publications, in which the subjects that he mentions are so keenly and instructively dis- cussed :--   " I hardly need to say to you, who hear so much about the country, that you would with difficulty recognize it as the same. The increase of its population in the manufactur- ing districts is such, as to present to the eye of the traveller one continued town. As you approach Leeds, Manchester, &c. &c. by night, the scene is wonderfully striking. Nu- merous manufactories, from six to nine stories high, and presenting sides of one to three hundred windows, all lighted with gas, can be likened to nothing ...

Trial by Jury. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 November 1825

Trial by Jury CONSOLIDATION OF JURY LAW«-Mr. Peel's Act for the above purpose has received the Royal Assent, and is now in full effect, throughout the British Dominions. The fol- lowing is an abstiact of its particular enact- ments, as taken from Lord Liverpool's speech on the third reading. " The rights of Jury- men are now clearly defined: The substantial changes proposed in the law relative to juries might be divided into two classes -those peculiar to common, and those af fecting special juries. The first alteration in the arrangement of common juries would be, a change in the manner of summining and making out the list. With respect to the   special jurie, it wa intended, first, to ex- tend the list of persons qualified to serve in counties. Instead of taking, as at present, only esquires; all persons described as mer chants or bankers - as in the City of London - would be eligible. His proposition as to the striking of special juries was this - the name of every f...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We are always obliged by the faVours of our Coi respondents. But when they advocate principles at variance with our own, or state circumstances which we know to be false, of course they cannot expect that we should insert their productions. Both these positions apply to the letters of " Si mon Humbug" and " a Resident." We have inserted as much of the letter of an old Settler as we could read. So suc- cessful is the endeavour, to disguise the character of the hand-writing, that it can hardly be decyphered at all.

FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 November 1825

FROM THE JUSTRALIAJV. A file of the late Hobart Town Gazette^ovf called The Colonial 'Times, reached us by the last arrival from the Derwent. We regret much that the industrious Editor of this Jour- nal should have been advised, or that he should have adopted the advice of any, to change the Title of his Newspaper, to which he had not only an unquestionable right, but for the unjustifiable use of which by another, .a Jury must have given him full compensa- tion. No matter whom the Jury might have been composed of, a conscientious discharge of their duty must have prevailed with them over all the artful persuasions, or all the in- fluences of which his opponents might have been possessed. No Judge on the Bench of an English Court presumed to have instruct- ed them to sanction an infringement of pri- vate property, or support any act based on injustice and oppression. On the nature of the act of appropriation of the title, we have formerly pretty largely expatiated. #We need not there...

töobernment ano dkentval <Drfcer. Government House, Hobart Town} November 5th, 1825. THE Anxiety with which the LIEUTENANT . GOVERNOR has watched the Movements of the Banditti headed by Brady, has been considerably increased, within the last few Days, from the Circumstance of ali traces of them being lost. It must be perfectly evi- dent to every Inhabitant of this Island, that the only Method by which Bushrangers are enabled to continue at large, after the commis- sion of their various and daring Robberies, ii by the Assistance they receive m disposing of their Stolen Property, and the Resources which they draw therefrom, both in the Town and Country.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 November 1825

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1825. We have, we believe, satisfactorily refuted the calumnies and falsehoods of the Govern- ment Official Gazette, as to the Editor of this Journal. We shall now therefore as much as   possible treat the future slanders of that de- based publication, with the silent contempt, to which the public voice of the whole Island, (we may safely say of the whole Island, for all the respectable part, even of the Government Officers, disclaim them) has with one accord consigned it. There is, however, a certain extent of calumny which requires notice, be- yond either refutation or contempt. The Go- vernment Official Gazette of last week affords more than one instance of this. It would in- deed be a lamentable slate of things, if the Editor of a Newspaper, in undertaking his la borious but certainly useful duties, was to be thereby disfranchised of his rights as an En- glishman, and to be subjected to detraction such as was never b...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 November 1825

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. SIR, - I wish to know whether the Government   have a right to prevent female prisoners   marrying, because it appears that by the     present practice a prisoner is obliged to ask   leave of Mr. Bedford, which is a very hard   case on the prisoner, and very prejudicial to the   beneficial interests of the Colony. Every one knows that nothing tends more to curb the turbulence   of our nature than matrimony. It is   not long since, a respectable Gentleman wished   to marry a female prisoner, and she would     not be allowed, because she was not his equal in   rank in life, but what an injustice to the woman! If she was so fortunate a to make herself     acceptable as a wife to a man higher in society   than herself, why interfere a...

AMERICAN EXTRACTS. a It has been mentioned as an uncommon circumstance in the late election of President in the United States, that of the 213 Repre- sentatives ¿n Congress, every one was present in Washington City-and only one membi^ was unable to attend from ill health. It ia another singular fact that since the adoption of the Constitution two states only have sup- plied Presidents for the Union-viz. Virginia and Massachusets.-Of the first five Presidents. WASHINGTON, JOHN ADAMS, JEFFBSON. MADISON, and MONROE, only one ever had a Son, who is now elected the Sixth President of the United States-and that during tho life time of his father. A writer in a Boston paper suggests the pro- priety of having our national coin to bear the stamp of the President's face. This is no new thing.-It was attempted in the days of Washington, who immediately ordered the die to be broken. The arms of the United States are substituted for the face of the Pre- sident, because it is desirable that the i...
