- I/Vtt To ¡he EpiMR. Sinfín consequence of -the- remarks in your (now) valuable Paper, re Li ti ve ^ the effects of removing Head Quarters ,f>oin Ho bait Town, 1 would obsçive, that George Town has experienced the same dt-stru^ioií, through a similar removal. The lat» Gover nor Macquaiie was, pailicularjly hnxious>that George Town should flourish, and did,aH"h,o could to promote its welfare,,/ While,un (tar Lieutenant Coloiu 1 Cimitiere, the, tovyu -pat on the appearance- of íesped ability, ¡m-d taught the stranger to expect it would ero long be a most ôowrisWnjç settlement, more particularly from its maritime, situation ; but m a few mouths after that Gentleman was recalled, that appearance was changed for one of devastation and rniu. Within the short space of three months, I calculate that Government buildings aloue to the amount of tun thousand pounds were utterly de- stroyed or rendered completely useless: for 1 «s most of the houses belonged to prisoners, -ov persons und...
POETRY. Stanzas. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 June 1825
POETRY Stanzas, Adieu, adieu ! - we've met - we part: We met in bliss, and part in woe ! But naught can change my votive heart -- Friend ne'er be thou a treas'nous foe. Bright was life's vernal sun when we First wander'd Tasman's wilds together, Fate's vessel swam a summer sea And Hope's bird waved its lov'liest feather. 'Twas ours, to cull joy's bloom, secure From sorrow's damask-hidden thorn - Our's, peace almost unearthly pure ; But, mine is now a soul forlorn. Still, tho' in grief, as erst in weal &nbsp; Let friendship's honoured pulse beat true ; And, may our tried fraternal zeal Adorn our deaths : - adieu ! adieu !
Port Dalrymple News. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 June 1825
Port Dalrymple News. Extracts from the Letter of our Launces- ton Correspondent, dated the 6th instant : " The use of a free Press is conspicuous in more instances than can be mentioned, and even here your Paper is of service, for a Distraint has issued tor the sly-grog fines, in consequence of your exposition, against the great man at Tallisker; but he swears he will appeal to Head Quarters, and that the liquor was unlawfully sold without his knowledge, and contrary to his consent. This, however, I know to be false! " As the Seat of Government is removed to Launceston, a telegraph is being prepared; by which we shall promply ascertain when a ship approaches George Town, about 40 miles distant. " The Queen Charlotte leaves here to- morrow without fail, carrying a cargo of wheat to Sydney. " The Governor Arthur remains wind bound.* " How absurd is the privilege yet given to export wheat, when more than half our set- tlers have not wherewith to sow their land ! " Pray is the Colonial ...
Quebec. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 June 1825
Quebec &nbsp; &nbsp; We avr ever most happy to find the con- duct of Governors afford scope for justi- fiable applause. Colonies are so importanr to our Nation, and so much of regard for &nbsp; Sovereignty depends on the due administra- tion of Government within them, that whilst every impropriety displayed by the distant Representatives of our King should be ex- posed and resisted not only for their ab- stract sake, but also more incumbently" because their results are pregnant with pub- lie mischief; every excellence found attach- ed to them shouíd meet the most willnJ notice and liberal acknowledgments. Xtis therefore, with much pleasuie we make the following extracts^ by which certain iuis; conceptions respecting the late Governor Geueral of Quebec will be satisfactory rectified :-.

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 June 1825
-ffenfrirt Saum» TRIDAY, JUNE 10, 3825. The present unexampled -crisis, and the va- rious afflicting topics that politically agitate .it, compel us to reveal tiufhs which we know must be unwelcome. Our couise,_ therefoie, is oiîe qf considerable danger and inconve- nience. We traverse it amid obstacles, at- tacks, and calumny. If we state the public -grief for a public wrong, the tenors of vindic- tive law assail us* If we pi aise the past, and those whose wisdom in union with virtue ren deied it commendable, we aie jmenaced for holding the piesent up to obloquy. *' The buist of every groan" that despair extoi ts, is by legal inuendos misconstrued into crime; and the more truly we nariate a pievalent opinion against those who wriggle their way to power without one generous wish to well employ it, the more bitterly we find ourselves bedewed with the hireling saliva of diseased 'vitupeiation. In vain expeiience pt-oelaims that no authority is solid which has not justice for its base-i...

The Gay Decciver. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825
-000 Joan, a maid oí fifty five, Was at her toilet dressing ; Her waiting maid, with iron hot, Each paper'd curl was pressing. The looking-glass her eyes engrosc'd, While Betty humm'd a ditty ; In fact, she gaz'd so on her face, She leahy thought it pretty. Her painted cheeks and pencill'd brows She could not but approve ; Her thoughts on varied subjects turn'd, At length ¿hey dwelt on love. And shall ; said she, a virgin's life Aw ait these pleasing charms ; And shall no sighing, blooming youth Receive me to his aims ; Forbid it love ! she scarce had spoke, When Cupid laid a trap ; For at the chamber door was heard A soft and gentle rap. Cried Betty-'who the deuce is that ; 'Aye, tell, said Joan true. When straight a tedder voice replied, Dear Ma'am, I dye for you ! 'What's that, she said, O Betty say ; A man-and die for me ! And can I see the youth expire ; 0 no, it cannot be. Haste, Betty, open quick the door, 'Tis done-and lo ; to view, \ A little man with bundle stood, , x In s...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. CHARACTER OF LORD BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825
& CHARACTER OF LORD BYRON. BY SIR WALTER SCOTT. The following warm-hearted tribute to the memory of Lord Byron, by an individual who ranked next to him as a poet, is a proof how much liberality is allied to true genius : Amidst the general calmness of the politi- cal atmosphere, we have been stunned, from another quarter, by one of those death-notes which are pealed at intervals, as from an archangel's trumpet, to awaken the soul of a whole people at once, Lord Byron, who has so long and so amply filled the highest place in the public eye, has shared the lot of huma- nity. His Lordship died at Missolonghi, on the 19th of April. That mighty genius, which walked amongst men as something su- perior to ordinary mortality, and whose pow- ers were beheld with wonder, and something approaching to terror, as if we knew not whether they were of good or of evil, is laid as soundly to rest as the poor peasant whose ideas never went beyond his daily task. The voice of just blame and mal...
The Newspaper Press. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825
The Newspaper Press. The following remarks are from the Con- stitutionnel on the repeal of the Censorship : " One of the necessary results of a Consti- tutional Government is the Liberty of the Press regulated by wise laws, and this liber- ty cannot exist with the Censorship of the public journals. Pamphlets, however they may be circulated, speak only to a small number of readers—newspapers address them- selves to all opinions, express the sentiments of all, defend all legitimate interests, and cause to be heard the complaints of the op- pressed. Thus moderate discussion esta- blishes itself, conflicting opinions are clear- ed, confidence consolidates itself, and power appears to the citizens as the protector of the rights of all, and the supporter of public liberty. By such means the ardour of inno- vation evaporates ; the gloomy genius of re- volution fails ; the social orders, submitting to a salutary controul strengthen them- selves ; and thrones, which protect the inte- rests a...
BRITISH EXTRACTS. Political Maxims. (Translated from the French of M. Feutry. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825
omstNKHB -asHPíB&aíOft UoUticalií*aaAíiíí0. (Translated from'the 'French of M. Feutry. The prerogatives of corporate bodies, and the privileges of cities, ought to remain un- touched, if they be not inimical to the good of mankind, when countries fall into the conqueror's Hands. There should be a prevailing religion in every country, so also should the sinne cus- toms be preserved, as well as the same stan- dard of weights and measures : but above all, money should be precisely similar in all parts of tbe kingdom. The liberty and property of strangers should not be touched, and they would flock to that country where this rule was invaria- bly observed. It is of the utmost importance to the well being of a state, for the Government to know when to recompence and when to punish. Criminals should never be doomed to die. They might be of service to the country by being employed in public works, in assisting in cutting canals, or in forming roads. It would be au easy thing to for...

A gen- tleman whose lands were more extensive than fertile, used to plaut 1000 trees on the birth of every daughter,tuwu his waste grounds, which wem, ou au average, worth £l each on lier coming of age; thus enabling him to give her a fortuae of £1000 without any extraordinary economy joa his pait, the regular thinning of the trees, at proper seasons, with barking, Sec. paying »H the current expenses, besides yielding him a small rent for the land. In the year 1753, 02 fir-trees were planted upon a piece of ground, about three-quarters of an acre in exleni. The land was waste and poor; no extia expense was incurred, and &lt;no fur-, ther attention was paid to the young trees.'

Supreme Court. His Honor Chief Justice PEDDER re- sumed the Civil Sittings of the Supreme Court on Monday last. There were no causes tried ; but several motions of some importance were made. Mr. CARTWRIGHT moved that all proceedings in a cause in which the Defendant had been arrested twice upon one affidavit should be quashed. Mr. STEPHEN, who had acted for 4he Plaintiff, and had instituted the proceedings as to which this motion was made, admit- ted that they were irregular, and that an action for false imprisonment might be the consequence.-Mr. CARTWRIGHTS mo- tion was granted. ^ The Couit was occupied as to certain Debtors, confined in the Gaol, and the time for bringing up one person so circumstanced was enlarged to the 1st of July. On Wednesday the Court was engaged a very considerable'time, upon ah applica- tion made in behalf of certain persons now confined in Gaol for debt, as was al- leged without proper warrants of committal.

Wvt BalvyimpWTätto*. Extracts from the Letter of our Launces- ton Correspondent, dated the 13th inst. : Mr. Commissioner HONE is extremely popular in this place, and has decided near- ly 200 causes, to the evident satisfaction of1 all parties concerned. I hope his mildness will be copied by Mr. M-. j . The Court of Quarter Sessions opened this day, with unprecedented solemnity. Pray is it not against reason and fair play, ' that the Committing Magistrate should, af- ter having of course prejudged the case, be allowed to sit as a Juror? The want of an unbiassed Jury becomes every day more evident, and will, the Inha- bitants most earnestly hope, engage the im- mediate attention of the Legislative Coun- sel at Port Jackson. An old woman, named Cliphon, was com- mitted for wilful and gross prevarication. On Saturday Patrick Halloran, a private of the 40th Regt, put a perioud to his exist- ence, by blowing his brains out. An In- quest was subsequently held, and a verdict of Lunacy recor...

Amongst other offences commuted, since our last Publication, the following hav« been reported to us :- j There is certainly a great potion of what may be called shrewdness abàut the fair sex in this Colony ; as an illustration of which we shall record an anicdote.
