On the Nuptials of Mrs. W--e. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 June 1825

On the Nuptials of Mrs. W——t. " That marry, is the very theme I came to talk of." SHAKESPEARE Principalities, Titles, I envy them not, Nor mercantile misers the gold they have got ; For peace I aspire, and calmly despise   Each fancy-lit meteor that dazzles the eyes.   "Tasman's Stingo is fine," and while quaffing   its bowl,       A bright stream of gaiety flows through my soul, And I prize it far more than Jove's nectar divine,   For madness not pleasure arises from wine ! O let Libertines vaunt of their unrestrained joys, But I tell them impurity transport destroys, That to love only one is when married " allright," As I hope be will do, who espoused Mrs. W—.

Port Dalrymple News. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 June 1825

Uott JPalrgmpIe Wem, Extracts from the Letter of our Launceston Correspondent, dated the 30th ultimo : " Every one that I speak to is disgusted with Howe, for abandoning this Settlement, and anxious that you should start another Paper here immediately. Mr. Charlton, hy the bye, has instructions to address you on the subject ; and my sincere advice is do not cast away the opportunity! Consider, Sir, the glbry of establishing on independent prin- ciples a Launceston Gazette! This thought ought to be your sufficient motive; and I pray you not lo let the occasion slip. " As some great men contend that Hobart Town contains too many prisoners, I bejr. the surplusage may be sent to this place, where there are too few even for the Public Works. " It is pleasant to say that Colonel Balfour, our Commandant, improves upon farther ac* quaintance ; he is remarkably attentive to j"iis public duties, and appears to act in the most upright and impartial manner ; and, any paper addressed to him is c...

To His Honor Lieutenant Governor AR- THUR, &c, &c, &, SIR,-I have some reason to believe that these respectful Communications, aided by other accidental circumstances (which every man of common discernment could not but have anticipated, sooner or later to occur), haye induced you to bestow a little of your attention upon the conduct of certain indivi- duals, whose object it has been (for the fur- therance of their own purposes), to draw a line around you, witliiu which none but themselves., or those privileged by them should penetrate. 1 have adopted then, the f»resent channel of address, not, as the hire» ings assert, for the gratification of " perso, nal importance" but in the honest endea- vour to submit to your serious considera- tion, the real feelings, sentiments, and situa* lion ofthe people, placed by their Sovereign under your Government ; and which the hire- lings so anxiously desire either to disguise, Or altogether to withhold from you.

The Poor Debtor. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 June 1825

Cï)e îlîoot BeMùV. With visage pale and sunken^ye, Behold yon figure gliding by ! There-skulking like a shadow dim, Shrinking, if you but look at him ; Attir'd in rags, and sorrow-worn, By want depress'd, and stung by scorn ! See, now he stops, now turns his head, Expressive of wildness,. but more of dread ; And, methinks, from his eye a tear is shed ! Away the drop that per force will gush.' Again he hurries, with cautious speed, Lest in a Jail his heart may bleed ! O ! may he be sav'd from a doom so severe, For man is his foe, and freedom is dear. Lo ! ever and anon he starts, As at the objects of his fear ; But no one is nigh-ah, mark you that sigh ! Again he turns to Hy. Now 'midst yon alley's gloom with sudden step he darts,' . ' What crime is his that Fate pursues? Misfortune aud a vagrant Muse ! Perhaps he lias not made his care, The lucre fools and villains share. 0, many a way the wicked man will thrive, But who will Virtue's drooping head revive?

For in the month of June, with yet scL*e»* or eight months to exist upon our present stock, bread is already at a price ?which few persons can afford at these times. Dreadful is the s cence of'misery to be con- templated ; the rich, who are surrounded by every comfort, eau form no idea of a poor man's children crying for bread, which they cannot obtain. What are the Magistrates about? What is this parade of a Quarter Sessions, if there are to be no inspections, no presentments. Look at them at Sydney ;t they manage things dif- ferently there. On similar occasions in that Colony, long before the staff of life would have been allowed to reach its present price, the Magistrates would Ime prevented the bakers from making any other than houshold bread. .An amazing Husbanding of flour is the result.

Anecdotes, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 June 1825

-m&fm - GOOD EFFECT OF BAD WRITING.^.A painter at Boulogne, more favouredby ta- lents than by fortune, had painted the p0r* trait of a young- English lady, who refused to pay him for it, under the pretext that it waá not like. The picture remained a long tinju on his hands, and probably would have doile so to the end of his clays, if one of his friends recollecting a well-known anecdote, had not undertaken to disencumber him of it. rjy his means the portrait was soon exposed to the gaze of the passers by in the town ; and underneath it was written, a cendre (to be sold) ; but the writer, doubtless from want of skill, had constructed his letters so ¡1| that the v resembled ap, and the inscrip' tion therefore appeared to some to be a pQn. die (to be hanged.) The countryman of the young English lady did not fail to stop before this little exhibition, and instantly recognised the original. The interpreters whom they consulted to explain the vviitjiwr read no better than the writ...

I have also, as I hine proceeded, respectfully called your attention to the re- plies which they hav.« put forth, i need not Repeat, Sir, for it is obvious, that not a sen- tence of argument has been contained in any oneof tliem. Nothing but a continued repe- tition of personal abuse, and invective against what they áiH the impertinence of presuming to comment upon their measures. The time is novv anived, when it becomes necessary to trace to its real source, the prin- cipal cause of the controversies which have lately taken,place. I have cautiously ab- stained ...

To the Entrón. SIR,-Tam one of many who embarked for the Colony mulei the impression excited by assurances fiom the Colonial Oihce, that « tW fostering hand of Government would be extended to every iudustiious and well dis- posed settler; ahd that every encouragement both In the equal distribution of aitificeis, as well as in the reception of our produce at the Commissariat Stores, would be given. A finn reliance of these assurances has been the main support of the honest farmer, under all the hardships and trials incidental to fixing himself, on bia Grant, and operated as a powerful incentive to extraordinary ex ertiotis for the impiovement and cultivation of each respective allotment. On perusing your report of the proceed- ings oí the Meeting, relative to the projected temoval of the Capital from Hobart Town, I , was paiticularly pleased to observe, that the - principal motive assigned for such removal, was, the relief and facility that the erecting ,a depot in the iuteiior, woul...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-I am a resident at Launceston.-The other day my assigned servant was employ- ed by me to drive a bullock cart, to fetch fuel ; whilst going through a slough on the high road, he got into the cart, to avoid wading Through the mire,-for which he was taken before the Police Magistrate, and fined 10s. 6d, sterling, together with 5s. 6d. Court expences ; on my non-payment of which, he was taken from me, and returned to the Public Works ! I doubt, Mr. Editor, whe- ther this is a lawful manner of extorting money ! for if such fines are to be deducted from my assigned servants wages, he pays   dearly for his unwillingness to wade up to his middle in mire; and, on the other hand, as he is taken from my service, through non- payment, what a fine opening it makes for assigned servants generally, to procure their discharge from their masters! The late Governor Macquarie-would not allow an as- signed servant to be taken from any indivi- dual, except for heinous o...

To the Editor, SIR.- I read in your last week's Gazette, with feelings of equal surprise and indigna- tion, the Letter of "a Settler." He is certainly a most peculiar Patriot! He assuredly desires the public weal! And why?-because his efforts directly tend to bereave society of fair assistance, and to sa- crifice individual right, on the altar of indi- vidual assistance ! !     The Settler, Sir, before he attempted to describe the profits of a Ferry, should have paid that Ferry's demands against him ! He should have reasoned on the impropriety of attacking an institution to which he was under, a vital obligation ! and let him recol- lect that to the Ferry against which he com- bats, he may yet be indebted for imprison- ment, unless he do at length that which, should have been done long since ! With respect to the Settler's remarks; namely, that personal interests are inferior to those of the Public, and that £22 a-week for one side of a Ferry are no joke,-I...

Extraordinary Steam Gun. [The following is copied from a new pub- lication called, " The London Mechanic's Register."—We rejoice to see an addition to the list of cheap publications of this de- scription, not only as they tend to employ the leisure hours of the working classes in a far more useful manner than can possibly he derived from the usual associations to be met with in public houses ; but as they tend to counteract, in no small degree, the Anti-Christian and disloyal trash with which the Public have for a long time been annoyed by Carlisle and his disciples.] " Much as may have been said of the power and effects of steam, and great as have been the improvements in engines, and in the application of this powerful agent to the purposes of manufacture and the arts; it was reserved for Mr. Perkins to astonish us, even at a period when we imagined that the ingenuity of man had ex 'erted itself to the utmost; but to como im- mediately to the extraordinary piece of me- chanism cal...
