A Swan River Eclogue. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 October 1830

A SWAN RIVER ECLOGUE. "Compare her face with some that I shall shew, And I will make thee think the Swan a Crow." Shakspeare.                       Though the classical bards, to cajole as,   Miraculous stories have told,         Of the glittering river Pactoles,       Whose margins were stranded with gold;         Of the Styx, whose ferruginous water,       Encrusting Achilles with steel,           Insured him forever from slaughter, Unless he were shot in the heel:-                 &...

Original Communication. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 October 1830

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION.   (Continued.)     The traffic in, or rather importation of slaves, is entirely put an end to in the Isle of France; and, although laws of nearly equal severity were in force at Bourbon, till so late a period as the middle of the year 1828, the trade was there in active progress. Whether the laws are not sufficiently en-     forced there, or whether the French will run greater risks for a chance of obtaining exorbitant profits, is not for me to de-   cide, but as far as regards my own personal observation, I can say, that I was not only myself acquainted with several who were engaged in the trade, but also witnessed the arrival of fresh importations, and which importations I then con- sidered as publicly connived at by the Authorities - and so, indeed, has the whole slave trade been by the French gene-   rally. England has suffered herself to be humbugged by France, and...

HOBART TOWN.   OCTOBER 15, 1830.             Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palla- dium of all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights.       Junius.               Our attention has lately been called by a Correspondent, to the distressed state of the commerce of the Island, and as a remedy for which, he suggests that a Public Meeting should be held, remarking, that the occasion seems to him to require the attention of the Authorities, even more than that which now occupies their paramount - nay, their exclusive energies.     While we admit what every one at all con- nected with trade full well knows, to their own sorrow, we can by no means agree with our...

Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palla- dium of all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius. DEATH OF THE KING. The long expected event has at length ar- rived!- the illustrious GEORGE THE FOURTH is now numbered among the dead, and sleeps in the tomb of his ancestors! This melancholy   event was announced to the British Public on the morning of the 26th June, by the following Letter being placarded at the Mansion House: Whitehall, June 26, 1830. My Lord, - It is my painful duty to in- form your Lordship that it has pleased Al- mighty God to release the King from his suf- ferings. His Majesty died about a quarter past three this morning.- l have the honor to be, &c. (Signed) Robert Peel.           To the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor.

Latest British Intelligence, (Down to June 28, 1830.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 October 1830

LATEST BRITISH INTELLEGENCE. (Down to June 28, 1830.)           Several very important questions concerning     these Colonies have lately occupied the atten- tion of Parliament; and as they are of such considerable moment to every inhabitant of this part of the world, we shall make our ex- tracts rather more lengthy than is our usual custom.                     On the 11th of June -         Mr. Hume moved for an account of the expenses of main- taining convicts at the Penitentiary at Millbank, from Ja- nuary 1820 to December 1829, showing the number of con- victs in each of those years, the expense per head, the earnings of each convict, and the net expense to the pub- lic - also an account of the expense of keeping the convicts at the hulks, with a return of the number sent to...

Original Communication. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 October 1830

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION. (Continued.)       Nearly the only miserable and poor of the Isle of France are those blacks who have had their liberty granted them, thero masters considering that they have done quite sufficient in giving them their liberty. Many, as I have already stated, would most gladly return to slavery, in which state they are always provided for by their masters, whether the son shines or not they are sure to have a good wholesome food as much as they may require.     Most of the slaves of Bourbon, I might say nearly all, consist of Cafres and Muzumbeques; at the Mauritius there is a much greater mixtare, Malays, Lascars and many other Indian castes, Cafres, and Mozambiques. As to their dress they are well clothed at the latter Island, whereas at Bourbon nature only is their tailor and mapina-maker - tis true clothes are not necessary in that climate, but they considerably   add to the appe...

PROBABLE CHANGES OF THE ADMINISTRATION. From the Standard, Saturday June 26. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 October 1830

PROBABLE CHANGES OF THE ADMINISTRATION. From the Standard, Saturday June 26.   The Duke of Wellington will, at least for the present, we apprehend, retain the office of Premier; but the Cabinet will be in a great degree , new modelled. In addition to the dismissal of Lords Ba- thurst and Ellenborough, and Mr. Goulburn, and the removal of Sir George Murray, to the Horse Guards, Lord Melville is now to be sacrificed. Out of the Cabinet, Sir H. Har- dinge will go to Ireland, and Sir George   Cockburn will follow the present First Lord of the Admiralty in his disgrace. The vacancies thus created will be filled, it   is supposed, by the Lansdowne and Holland Whigs, who have been lately trying to raise themselves into importance by the attempt to negocíate a reconciliation between the Pre- mier and the Huskisson party; this attempt has not yet succeeded, but it is hoped by the re- fuse Whigs, that they have won the Duke of   Wellington's...

English Intelligences [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.   It may not be uninteresting to many of our friends to read the following account of the will of the late Sir R. Peel, especially when it is recollected that, on the Baronet's first ar- rival in London, some 40 years back, to use his own expression, he had not two shillings to rub against each other in his pocket. " The will of the late Sir Robert Peel was proved lately at Doctors'-Commons. It is of great length, and contains a prodigious variety of trusts and limitations respecting the real property, which is distributed amongst his large family and their issue, all of whom entitled to a participation in it are required to take the name and quarter the arms of " Peel." It ensures to the present Baronet the sum of £100,000, three per cent, consols, (equivalent to £68,000) which was settled on him and his issue upon his marriage, besides an annuity of £9,000, and makes a further addition thereto of £40,000. It then bequeaths divers sums to the test...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir-If you have a sufficient space in your widely-circu- lated and valuable Miscellany, perhaps you may do the Public some service - and at the same time forward a cause in support of which the inhabitants of Hobart Town (in accordance with their uniform practice in such cases) are so munificently coming forward by inserting the following. There was an advertisement in your Paper of the 15th   Instant, announcing that on the following Sunday, (the 17th,) the large room at Mr. J. P. Deane's would be opened by the Rev. Frederick Miller, (independent Minister,) for the purpose of Divine worship, until a more convenient place (a Chapel I suppose is meant) could be provided. It was accordingly so opened; - but in consequence of there being nothing further in your Paper respecting it, I thought some notice of it in this way would inform any who may have overlooked the advertisement, or who may suppose, by there being no continuation of it ...

A Song. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

A SONG.   Gather ye rose-buds while you may, Old time is still a-flying;   And this same flower that smiles to-day, To-morrow may be dying.   The glorious lamp of Heaven, the Sun, The higher he's a-getting,     The sooner will his race be run, And nearer he's to setting. That age is best which is the first,   When youth and blood are warmer;     But being spent, the worse and worst Times still succeed the former. Then be not coy, but use your time,   And while ye may, go marry;   For having lost but once your prime, You may for ever tarry. Curran.- Curran was unfortunately cursed with a vicious and frail wife, who carried her ill conduct to so great a pitch, that a legal verdiot established the fact of her infidelity. With most men, such a thing would have been a heavy, almost heartbreaking affliction; but with the Bar-   rister it was a cont...

Literary Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

LITERARY VARIETIES.             The following brief narrative of the wars   during our late Sovereign's reign, will no doubt be considered highly entertaining to many of the inhabitants of this remote part of the globe: -   When his late Majesty became Regent in 1811, the aspect of public affairs was over-clouded. The war in the Penin   sula languished; if glorious, it had not been remarkably for-     tunate, and many of the most eminent statesmen of the day scrupled not to declare that to withdraw our armies, and leave Spain and Portugal to their fate was the duty of the British Government. Such opinions too, it is worthy of re- mark, were uttered by those with whom the Regent had long been in the habit of friendship, and whose political views had, for the most part, been in perfect unison with his own. Yet, under all these circumstances, " ...

Antedote of King George the Fourth. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

ANECDOTE OF KING GEORGE THE FOURTH. " I remember," says the Margravine of Anspach, in her Life, " a singular anecdote which was related to me by Mr. Wyndham, a man totally devoid of superstition, which had arisen from a story told me by the Prince of Wales. At the end of the last century, Sir William Wyndham, being on his travels through Venice, observed accidentally, as he was passing through St. Mark's-place, in his cabriolet, a more than ordinary crowd at one corner of it. On stopping he found it was a mountebank who had occasioned it, and who was pretending to tell fortunes, conveying his predictions to the people by means of a long narrow tube of tin, which he lengthened or curtailed at pleasure, as occasion required. Sir William, among others, held up a piece of money, on which the charlatan immediately directed his tube to his cabriolet, and said to him, very distinctly, in Italian, ' Signor Inglese, cavete il bianco cavallo.' This circumstance made a very forcible impression...
