Glorious Triumph--the Press. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 January 1829

Glorious Triumph—the Press.   The Public have already been fully apprised, that His Majesty has disallowed the continuance of the Newspaper License Act, depriving the Colonists of Van Diemen's Land of the "FREEDOM OF THE PRESS." In the letter of the   twenty-four Gentlemen, who signed the Address, strongly re- monstrating against the Act, and praying His Excellency Lieu- tenant Governor ARTHUR would either suspend its operations for a time, or repeal it altogether, His Excellency observed, that Lord GODERICH or "HIS MAJESTY would give their ob-   servations the most deliberate consideration." It is true, that His Majesty in disallowing the Act, "DID give the observa-   tions of those Gentlemen the most deliberate consideration ;" and this we are convinced is duly appreciated by every man in the whole Island, "whose unbounded love of liberty would   carry them to the last verge of prudence for its unshackled en- joyment...

Latest English News, TO SEPTEMBER 14. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 January 1829

. Xeatest English News. , TO SEPTEMBER 14.   Our files of English Papers were received so late last week, that we were unable to give any. extracts from them. This week, we are however gratified in being able to lay before our readers the latest English news in the Colony, having obtained newspapers up to the 14th of September, the day previously to the departure of the Harmony. The following are a few of their most interesting extracts : Don Miguel, in proportion as he is repudiated by the European Powers, appears to increase in wanton cruelties. Upwards of 5000 victims to his tyranny are gioanicg in dun- geons in Portugal, and many of them Englishmen, charged with offences against his authority. A Judicial Commission was pioceeding with the trial of some of those who were deemed most obnoxious to the Usurper. Several sharp engagements bad taken place between the Russians and Tuiks. The latter appear to have drawn the enemy into the heart of their country ; and are now...

Since the glorious recall of the restoration of the " Freedom OP the Press," and in strict conjunction with the declared assurances of one of the most enlightened Members of the British Senate, the Right Hon. Mr. Huskisson, that we area "Free Press," we cannot help evincing a slight por- tion of more than ordinary vanity and conseqnence since our Periodical has been justified and acknowledged a legitimate Censor of the actions and conduct of the local Government thereby confirming that consequence so anxiously endeavoured to be smothered by the heads ot the place-men of our present...

Colonial Governments. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 January 1829

Colonial Governments. Mr. Baring's view of Colonial Governments, given in an   instructive speech by that Gentleman in the House of Com- mons on the 8th of July last, (which we shall insert at full   length in our next), are so applicable to those of every honest, upright, and independent Englishman, that we cannot help this week making an extract therefrom. Speaking of Canada, that its connexion with England would not be permanent, Mr. Baring said-- " Let the House look to the great and growing Colony of New South Wales. There they found some individuals culti- vating their farms, and pursuing commercial speculations, as was done here. Now, could any one suppose that our sway there would be permanent ? Did any person think that the people there would always suffer themselves to be governed by rules and regulations framed in England ? It was impos- sible that, in this country, their various wants could be known, and that this Government could pursue exactly...

Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 January 1829

Original Correspondence, SIR,-Permit roe to congratulate you upon the revival of your Newspaper. The general satisfaction which the event has afforded all parts of the community, proves the strong an- tipathy to those 'measures, which, "with all the semblance of decorum and propriety, Served no other purpose but to satisfy tho cravings of power, " regnandi dira cupido." / The first Impression which presents itsel f to the mind, in au impartial contemplation of the late restiiction of the Press, is thdl the meantre was too much tinctured with personal feeling. It is the peculiarity of great spirits alone, to set the face like a flint to the public good, and to move straight-forward in the piocessof Government, uninfluenced by the little passions of the human heart. A woman could perceive the superiority of magnanimity to the petty trammels of retaliation. The sta^e, said Phillippato Edwaid, on which the inhabitants of Calais suffer, is to them a stage of honour, but to you a stage of...

The Practise of the Law. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 January 1829

The Practise of the X/aw> The vital importance and the deep interest of this subject, connected as it is with the prosperity ' of thiá Colony, has induced as to lay before our readers the following well written article from the last Austraf-Asiatic Review : " The subject to whioh we now draw the attention of onr readers, is of the utmost importance. The enormous ex x pence attendant upon entering the very threshold of Mr. (Chief Justice) PEDDER'S Court, is a most crying evil ; and it is the more severely felt, because as we have said, it is un- paralleled in any'part of the world. It is not necessary to our pi esent purpose, to go* farther than to the sister Colony. A comparison with the manner in which " the Practise there" % and " the Ptactise.heie" of Courts existing, called indeed into existence by the same Act of Parliament, is established, will be the most effectual method of enabling the Colonists to judge of the manner in which their interests on ibis head have teen àiten...

The Banks. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 January 1829

^ *r w , x } The Banks. S â The system of banking is so intimately intei woven, and so closely connected with the interests of the Colony, that upon the judicious and impartial management theieof, in' a great measure depends the welfare of ourcommercial and agricultu- ral pursuits. ' , v It is indispensably necessary that an even and stea¿y,course of discounts be adopted, instead of a capricious one, as'the latter must lead the traders to certain destruction ; first in- ducing them to speculate, and then refusing themj-easonable accommodation ; but in doing this, care must be had not to run into the opposite extreme,, as the,evil consequences of an ouer issue of Bank paper, would be immediately' tp drive all the specie out of the country, and place an artificial high value upon our native product?, so as to prevent e^portniwn, and thus turn'the exchanges greatly against us, ' which must as a consequence drain us of our remaining cash.

The case required explanation, and my eil ort s were only intended to counteract the very injurious tendency such erroneous accounts must have, both at home and abroad, if left uncontradicfcd-discouraging emigration, dishearten- ing those already here, and injuring the local as well as the foreign credit of the Colony-while, in fact, nothing eau be more cheering or prosperous than the state of this country at, the present time, with respect to its solvency and resources ; ' of course Ido not now allude to what it would arrive at,' uuder the fostering lund of a local Legislature. .
