To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 October 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir, - Some time since I wrote a letter to yon, respecting the inconvenience sustained at St. David's Church, by the long legged portion of the community, in not having sufficient room allowed them to stretch those very necessary members of the human frame. Unfortunately my notice has not had the desired effect, but the reason I again trouble yon is sim- ply this - I am a regular church goer, and have, ever since I landed, attended Divine Worship at St. David's Church. On my first arrival I was delighted to hear the service so regular-   ly and beautifully performed, both as regarding the manner in which the service was read, as also of the manner in which the singing of the choir and congregation was conducted. I   should be always willing lo aid with my best endeavours the chorus of the combined attendants, but I am sorry to say, that latterly the clerk has not left it in my power so to do - In the first place he now a...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.                         It is with the utmost pleasure we observe some decisive steps are taking to encourage emigaration, and no greater or moe effectual means could in our opinion be abopted than allowing parishes to mortgagetheir rates; it is   with pleasure, we say, we quote the following from the Atlas:-                  On the motion of Mr. W. Horton, lenve was given to bring   in a bill to enable parishes to mortgage their rates for a   limitited period, for the purpose of permanently providing for their unemployed poor at home or abroad, and to regulate the mode of keeping parish accounts, so far as regards the sums collected onder the poor-rate. &nbsp...

Charles Routley. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 October 1830

CHARLES ROUTLEY. We have since our last, been favoured with more correct particulars, respecting the confession of Charles Routley, who suffered this day week, for the murder of John Buckly, who was better known by the name of " Pretty Jack." In our last statement, respecting the horrible murders with which he was in some way or other connected, we were in error in many trifling points, but as we had merely the reports pub- licly in circulatíon for our guidance, we could not at the time venture to affirm what we then stated to be correct; what we now lay before our readers may be relied upon, as being the substance of his confessions, since the sentence of death was pronounced upon him. It appears that he arrived in this Colony by the prison-ship Indefatigable, in the year 1812, being transported for life, for having been convicted at home of the crime of house- breaking. His general good conduct from the time he landed till about the year 1815 or 16, enabled him to obtain his emanc...

Original Communication. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 October 1830

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION. (Continued.)           The constant communication between this place and India   renders it a kind of hospital for the unhealthy of the more northern climates, who flock at certain periods of the year to participate in the salubrious air of the Mauritius. The           very figures of those unhealthy beings is sufficient to de- ter most persons from wishing to proceed further on their   voyage; I remember, on my first landing, meeting two gen-     tlemen at a friend's house, one about six feet two inches in     height, and the other of an ordinary stature, who had just   arrived from India. and who had obtained leave of absence   for the benefit of thier health; of all the poor helpless beings   hat ever sat down to ...

ENGLISH INTELLENGENCE.   The Chevalier Aldini, Professor of Philo-   sophy in the University of Milan and Bologna, is the person who first introduced galvanism into England, having acquired   the principles from his uncle Galvani, the celebrated dis- coverer of this powerful agent. During the last three years, the Chevalier's attention bas been directed to the study of the best means of rescuing individuals from the destructive   agency of fire, and he has happily combined the valuable dis- covery of Sir H. Davy, with a dress made of Asbestos - a sub- stance which has not only the important property of resisting the agency of combustion, but, from its great non-conducting powers, of effecting, with the wire gauze, an admirable de- fence from the active conflagration. At Milan aud Florence, Aldini's experiments were so satisfactory, that he was pre- sented by the Grand Duke with a snuff-box, enriched with brilliants. Equally success...

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 October 1830

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received many communications - Odes, essays, and Episodes - cogitated, we suppose, by Gentemen during the hours they have been on sentry, and written, no doubt, when relieved from their posts. This speaks highly in favour of       the various guards; it shews that the members are of a more           mental disposition than we suspected for we considered them all privately inclined for corporal gratification; but as to     the verses - The first on our file is an ode to the sentry at Go- vernment Gate, signed by "Militas;" next comes, a letter   signed "Keen Observer," stating that Government should have muskets made expressly for gentlemen, " they are too   heavy, for mine, I can assure you Sir< caused such a cramp in my arm the day following when I first mounted guard, that I could not write...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times,   Sir,- Several months since there was a great deal of talk about the wonderful advantage that would be tendered the town by bringing fine fresh water from Mount Wellington.- Every body was in expectation, and a few weeks only it was supposed would be required before the works were com-   pleted. Now it is months since we have heard any thing at all about this wonderful acqueduct. Is it to remain unfinished, after the toil and expense that has been expended upon it?   are the people this summer to be again poisoned     by drinking the filthy contents of the stream which is now li- terally converted into a main shore? It is quite time some   change was made in the present manner the town is supplied with that most necessary article, water, for if any untoward drought should happen, which might dry up the only stream by which the inhabitants are supplied - where in the na...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times,   Sir, - I shall feel obliged if you will inform me what rupees are now currently taken at. I have had occasion several times to change a note, and have been obliged to take rupees in part, all of which have been given to me as 1s. 9d., but upon paying them I have not in one single instance been allowed more than 1s 6d. I have always objected to take them at more than 1s. 6d., the answer I get in return is, "if you cannot pass them for 1s. 9d. bring them back, and I will change them." I have business to attend to, and cannot al- ways make it convenient to do so. - Your's, &c.         A Subscriber.                       Crime In Ireland. - Much has been said both in and out of Parliament about the lawlessness of the   &...

Modes of destroying Eagless. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 October 1830

MODES OF DESTROYING EAGLES.       In those parts of the Highlands of Scotland, where eagles   are numerous, and where they commit great ravages among the young lambs, the following methods are used for de- stroying them:- When the nest happens to be in a place situated in the direction of a perpendicular from the edge of the cliff above, a bunch of' dry heath or grass inclosing a burning peat, is let down into it. In other cases a person is let down by means of a rope, which is held above by four or five men, and contrives to destroy the eggs or young. The   person who thus descends takes a large stick with him, to beat off or to intimidate the old eagles. The latter, however, always keep at a respectable distance, for powerful as they are, they possess little of the courage which has in all ages been attributed to them, being in this respect much inferior to the domestic cock, the raven, the sea-swallow, and a hundred...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.   Sir, - Having returned lately from an excursion to the other side of the country, I observed with pleasure the earnest and decisive steps, very evident along my line of route, which the local Government was taking, however late, to- wards putting a period to the horrid aggressions of the blacks. Some forty miles from hence I encountered the Lieutenant Governor himself, intending no doubt to superintend person-   ally the execution of the measures which he had so well con- certed. He was attended, in addition to his ordinary suitc,- by several gentlemen, among whom was a Civil Officer; and here   again my praises are due - for the Officer in question, through his official pursuits differ as much as can easily be imagined from those of war, had nevertheless, duly appreciating the greatness of the design, and doubtless that the inert and inglori- ously peaceful (if any) among the Settlers, might be inspirited...

Literary Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 October 1830

LITERARY VARIETIES. The following is tolerably amusing and lets the cat out of the bag a little, respecting the manner in which " honourable authors some- times contrive to obtain a flattering reputation for their acknowlcdged productions." In enumerating the dramatic pieces which I have attempted, I, of course, have omitted a great number which I have either destroyed, or which are now lying dormant in my portfolio for revision, should favourable oircumstances demand them. Among those, however, which probably will never see the light, is an opera, which I wrote to oblige an Hon. and Rev. Clergyman, who being very anxious to acquire the fleeting and uncertain reputation of a dramatist, wished to have something he might call his own. He gave me, as a sort of prototype, the first scene of a musical nondescript piece, which began with-" Enter two angels and a fisherman," which, I believe   he has shown to many others. I, however, arranged some-   thing in two ...
