Execution. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 17 September 1830

EXECUTION.                   Soon after 8 o'clock this morning, the execution of Charles Routley took place. Ever since he has been in gaol he has conducted himself in a most contrite and penitent manner, and when the few minutes that were allowed him for prayer after his arms were pinioned, he offered to the throne of grace such a supplication that not only convinced the hearers of his pen- itence, but also shewed pretty plainly that he had in former years received an education very different to what might be   expected from a man so overwhelmed with guilt. He had before most folly confessed to a train of most hor- rible murders, and when the last duties of the Minister were performed he openly avowed that the whole of the statement the Rev. Mr. BEDFORD held in his hand, to be strictly true. It is impossible to look back, without shuddering, to the com- ...

Original Communication. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 17 September 1830

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION.     (Continued from our last.) The inhabitants of the Isle of France are celebrated for their generous hospitality-go where you will always a hear- ty welcome is awaiting you ;- a stranger might travel round the Island feasting like an alderman at every house he comes tp, without incurring one farthing expense; indeed the planters will not allow you to make presents to the slaves. I myself, not aware of the custom of the Island, was the cause of giving offence to a very respectable gentleman, who   observed me giving a trifle to an overseer of his that had     rendered me some little service, and so much did he take it to heart, that when I left him be requested me in future to con-     sider his house was not to be made as an inn of, what he had, he said, I was heartily welcome to, but if he had ever in- tended to open a public-house, he would have fixed himself in a m...

A Fragment. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 24 September 1830

A Fragment. ----------------- gentle breeze flapped the sails against the mast-breakfast was laid, and all eager for the fry, save one (an unhappy bachelor), he appeared pale and   agitated-after sundry unintelligible nods and winks to a married man, a fellow passenger, the single and married left   the cuddy together. "Good God!" said he of the single state, "Good God!!" (here he gasped for breath, and   seizing hold of the rigging nearly fainted), recovering a little he continued, " My dear Sir, Mrs. H------."

ENGLISH INTELIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 24 September 1830

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.           By the arrivals of the Lang and Mellish we   have received files of English papers up to the latter end of May. The Mellish left Spithead   on the 6th of June, and brings accounts that His Majesty was then in a most hopeless state. The conflicting and various daily bulletins con- tinued to perplex the citizens and the general stagnation of all kinds of business continued unabated. The funds, however, remained near- ly.stationary since the departure of the David Lyon - Consols quoted at about 93. The ex- pedition of the French against Algeirs was pro- ceeding with unabated vigour - yet the French funds continued steady at about 105. Indeed, it is considered remarkable, that in Paris as well as in London, the public funds of the two countries were never so little affected by poli- tical occurrences.         &...

11 To the Editor'of the Colonial Times. ?^ Sir-Nothing could have given greater satisfaction in this aefighbourhood than the Order issued by His Excellency in the last week's Gazette. The Settlers are »training every nerve to assist the Government in the prosecution of tins very judicious measure. t The greatest difficulty will be in procuring arms for the volunteer parties, very few persons baring more than,is necessary for the protection of their houses ,( for the moment the Blacks find such a simultaneous movement throughout the Territory, they will make desperate sallies on the residences of the Settlers. It will therefore be necessary, ps the.

We have already recorded our opinions upon the impro-   priety, to say the least, of the manner in which a packed Committee was saddled upon that Meeting, and we are fully of opinion, that nothing but the praiseworthy forbearance of numbers who were present, prevented the object of t...

Kean. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 October 1830

KEAN.         When Kean, the actor, was at Portsmouth, two or three   years ago, he was requested by the manager and two or three more, after one morning's rehearsal, to accompany them to take a bottle of Madeira and a biscuit. Kean objected at first, but at length assented, and away they went to one of the first-rate inns in Portsmouth. The landlord, when apprised   that Mr. Kean was of the party, ushered them into an elegant room, thanked the actor for the honor he did him, and for two minutes overwhelmed him with obsequious civilities. Kean bore it well for some time, but at length knitting his brow, and fixing his eye upon the landlord with that tremendous expression for which he was so remarkable said, " Mr.------,     I came into your house at the request of these gentlemen to partake of some refreshment. and not to be pestered with your civilities, which to me are so many i...
