To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825

-000 To the EDITO*. Sitt,-.fhere are, notwithstanding the alert ess of a Colonist, many minor abuses which emand exposure.

Mr. Perkins's Steam Gun. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825

Mv. îîerfcma'* Steam <&um Further particulars of this extraordinary Steam Gun, alluded to in our Supplement of last, week,:-Wei think we hear it said " What a murderous instrument! What barbarians to recommend such a mode of warfare." Gently, good friends ; if you w¡u reflect for a moment, you will find that if Mr. Perkins's Steam Guns were introduced into general use, there would be but very short wars ; since no fecundity could pro- vide population for its attacks. War is ¡[ pretty pastime now a-days, when it giVe8 chances of promotion to many pretty fellows and tends to remove any superabundance of the earth-but it would be a very different thing indeed, if some fifty or sixty thousand inen on either or both sides, were swept away by Perkins's exterminator. H any two rulers of the earth were to know, that in the event of declaring war ' against each other, a plague or pestilence would blast both armies, and sweep theni from the face of the earth, they would pau...

To the EDITOR. Salus populi, suprema lcx. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825

To the EDITOR. Solus populi, suprema lex. Bl SIR,--The robberies that are taking place ti Hobart Town and the interior of the coun rv cull lorth the most serious apprehensions from every individual who has any property to lose. Scarcely â night passes in Hobart Town but the most atrocious burglaries are committed j and the country is intested with numerous runaway coAvicts, who are prowl- ing about in eveiy district; and committing depredations on the industrious and well dis- posed settler. It naturally, Sir, becomes a question, has" there been any plan adopted to meet the ex- igency of the case ? And have Government ex- erted themselves by using every means in their power to give that protection to the Colonists which they are so justly entitled to ? What is the public expense incurred by our Police Establishments in Hobart Town, and how is it defrayed? I believe partly from ourCo^ lonidl Çund, and partly from the Commissa- riat. Possibly, Mr. Editor, you can inform nip next week ...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825

?l?oS».irt rotóein FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1825. Speculation undoubtedly constitutes the vitals of commercial success ; and as de- voted friends to trade, we cannot be suppo- sed desirous that any of its glorious chances should become extinguished. But mono- poly in articles of indispensable nutriment we cannot espouse as laudable, nor on abroad view estimate as judicious. Perhaps there- fore we may now not inopportunely hint, that those who have a secret store of wheat, for which they will udt accept ths very high piices at present obtainable, may defeat their avaricious views by continuing to hold it »ny longer : for rnan^ thingi are less likely than that a speedy arrival from the senior Ci>iouy may reduce wheat to its proper le- vel, viz. 10s. per bushel. At the same time, however, we do not so much blame the holders for endeavouring to realize an immense profit, as we do and ever must re- probate, that puerile weakness, that supine improvidence, by which the Public ha» The conduct a...

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 June 1825

POETRY. The splendor of morning illumined the sky, And yon mountain* had caught the bright ray, Fiil'd with rapture and love, & with heart-beat- ing high,   The bridegroom left Lindisfern Bay. Now sparkles the wave, and spreads the white sail, Derwent stream bears the bark swift away, Ah ! swifter she'd carry (could wishes prevail) The bridegroom of Lindisfern Bay. The youth leaps on shore, and hies to the fair, All lovely in bridal array, The Priest joins their hands and offers a prayer, For the lovers of Lindisfern Bay. From the altar attend the fair virgin train, To deck with sweet flowers the way ; On the beach bid adieu and ne'er see again The lovers of Lindisfern Bay. And now they embark, again spread the sail, But when shall they land well a day ! The squall comes resistless, death breathes in the gale As they enter sweet Lindisfern Bay. They're gone ! and for ever, the cold briny wave Dash'd the hopes of the morning away, They lov'd, were united, and lie...

-OOP To the EDITOR. Sin,~Our Colonial Hegnlationsï have no scruple in saying are just, and they were or- dained for the benefit of the community ; 1 am reluctant to find fault, but when oppres- sion comes from minor authority, I frei it my .duty to expose to public view any exorbitant demands that may be made. The pound keepers seem not to abide by the régula- tions, as I have paid for about 200 sheep im- pounded, more than double ihe amouutadow ed by Government and General Orders. If such impositions are allowed to exit, out property is not safe. This happened at Bag- dad» and was charged by the round-keeper. A RESIDENT IN THE DISTRICT. -nnn

Port Dalrymple News. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 24 June 1825

PORT DALRYMPLE NEWS.   Extracts from the Letter of our Launceston Correspondent, dated the 20th instant :-   I assure you, upon my honour, that there is only one feeling here respecting your con- duct, and that opinion is what you deserve it should be,-decidedly favourable. The time will come when the patriotic struggles for which you are now menaced shall be honourably recognized by public gratitude. In the mean while stand to your gun like a true Briton ; and, disdaining licentiousness, be the Champion of Liberty. The Governor Arthur sailed on Thursday, with wheat for Government. Justice appears at length inclined to visit poor and proverbially neglected Launceston, oftener than heretofore. In your last you mis-printed that Cliphon was an old woman, but my good friend he was not. Some persons, at Mr. Hone's request, will it is thought be immediately appointed to inspect the weights and measures, em- ployed by our licensed victuallers and storesmen. I am g...

Kurcem's Song. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 24 June 1825

Stutzern** s?ong. Ere death bath expelled every sense from my he ait, Let me leave these memorials for you ; For the love which in life I might never impart On eternily's blink I renew. I wreathe theo a garland ol'wild flowers bloom That blossom to evening's breath, In prodigal sweetness around the green tomb Of love, Which ne'cr<ïled but with death. The tears ever shed by affection sincere In a crystalliue chain I compose ; Where brighter and clearer each gem doth appear Than the dew-drops that diamond the rose. When o'er me the deep umbrage of cedars sha If wave, Interwoven with cypress and yew, And sway their dark boughs o'er the suicide's grave, Where no flow'ret of sweetness e'er grew ; To thee virgin mourners shall requiems sing, And hail thine enthronement on high ; But o'er my grave in gloom shall the hoarse raven's wing Flap at eve to the cold Zephyr's sigh. May the various hues of the chaplet I weave Resemble thy joys when I'm dead; And my numberless tears, by t...

To the EotToa. " Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou be like unto him.1' BOOK OF PROVERBS. Sut,-It is a matter of deep regret to the generality of your Readers that when any matter is stated for explanation or otherwise through the medium of your Paper, it is always replied to by personality and abuse. This alone shews how weak and defenceless must be the case of that person who adopts such a course of argumentation. We were told some time ago that " calumny was not reply; personal abuse was not refutation of argument." Every week proves the truth of this assertion, which applies with great force to the lucubrations of " Verus." A short an ßwer is only necessary for so pitiful a pro- duction, which is devoid of every thing in the shape of argument. This sapient writer is ina" totality of darkness" with regard to many of his conjectures, more especially when he talks of the tf disappointed'* Land? holder; Tcan assure him that these surmises dwell only in his vain " se...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 24 June 1825

Hobart Town FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1825. Numerous local changes of a rather impor- tant political description, are rumoured as likely to occur. Several new Townships, and five more Magistrates than are yet appointed, we hear mentioned as in fixed official contem- plation. With respect to the first, there can scarcely exist a diversity of sentiment, scarce- ly one unfavourable thought; for, as Ben- tham observes, that Ruler is entitled to grati tude who spreads a civilizing populace amidst the prior haunts of idolatrous barbarians, In- deed we should rejoice to find in a few years the entire space now cumbered with rude forest trees, speckled over with happy and affluent villages-to hear the hammer on the anvil where now no sound expands but from savages, or woodland brutes, from wild birds or the tempest-and to know that Education was sowing her immortal seed over the wither- ed foliage of ignorance and superstition. Re- specting however the report that other Magis- trates are to be appoi...

Postscript. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 24 June 1825

Just as this Paper was going to press, we received our files of Sydney Newspapers.-We have however only time to give the follow- ing information : Wheat was as low as 8s. 6d. and 10s. in the Sydney market on Thursday (May 12.) The settlers, it is hoped, will get" a- fair price while it is to be had, and not withhold their grain till fhips come tumbling into port. Potatoes were from 10s. to 10s. Gd. per cwt. It is reported, we cannot say upon what authority, that the various Government Esta- blishments are about to be broken up ; it being the intention of the Executive lo have public works performed by contract. We most heartily hope this may be true, as such a measure would lastingly benefit the Colo- ny, and facilitate the enlarging views of the Executive. The 3d Regt. (Buffs) are under orders for Bombay. A fixed standard of value is for the present given to the Spanish dollar, paid into the Colonial Treasurer's hands. The ofiice of Clerk to the Council, hitherto held with a stipen...
