Beauty's Tears. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

BEAUTY'S TEARS. I told of the woes of the days that were past, Of afflictions and trials severe-   How the morn of my life was with storms overcast, How the blossoms of hope were all nipt by the frost - And Beauty sat list'ning to hear. Of hardships, and dangers, and many a wrong, And of toils that beset me so near, Of Treachery's snare, and Ingratitude's tongue, I told - and t'was a pleasure the tale to prolong, For Beauty repaid with a tear.   O, soft form of Beauty that gladdens the soul!   Is aught as thy sympathy dear?- When thy bright beaming eyes with benignity roll!   When heaves thy full bosom at soft Pity's control,   And thy cheeks each washed with a tear.   When dark are the clouds that overshadow our doom, When hardships and dangers appear, When the storm-threat'ning skies all their terrors assume- Then the sun-beam of hope that can pierce tbro' the gloom, O Beauty! must shine thro' a tear. &a...

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: OCTOBER 29, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 October 1830

HOBART TOWN: OCTOBER 29, 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. Whenever any event happens to us, either in public or private life, of more than usual in- fluence upon our feelings, we are at first ab- sorbed, in a measure, in the contemplation of the incident, and lose sight of much that be- longs to it, until time has somewhat restored the tone of our reasoning faculties. Of this nature is the intelligence it was our painful duty last week to announce, when the news of the death of our late Sovereign George the Fourth was conveyed through our columns to our Readers. We were unable to accompany it with any remarks, as the mere fact alone was sufficient to engross thought and reflection which, for the moment, left room for little else;   for it will not be among the least striking or remarkable characteristics of the lat...

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

TO CORRESPONDENTS.       On going to Press we received a very important communica- tion from the Grand Army, as usual, from our most valuable Correspondent, George Augustus Widlikins. We know not     how the delay took place, the letter is dated Head-quarters, Nov. 1, and it has consequently been five days coming from a little beyond Sorell. We promised him, however, we will   speak to the Post-master on the subject. Before our next, we hope to be again favoured, in order that the valuable in-   formation which comes under his personal observation may be made public. A Fragment at some future period.   The Star of the West most likely in our next.     Daddy Long Legs's letter merely repeats the former grievance   respecting the inconvenient seats in the nave of the Church, and therefore is not likely to be sufficiently entertaining or useful,...

HOBART TOWN.     NOVEMBER 5, 1830. Let it he 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.     If we could only bring ourselves to consider   certain people in the same light that they some- times doubtless consider themselves, we might feel disposed to transfer from their shoulders to those of the Government the castigation that their late conduct, with regard to the Gaol Guard, richly deserves; but as there are some   who seldom suffer the Public to be without ample occasions for rightly estimating their true characters, there can be little difficulty - as Mr. Laman, the correspondent of the Tasmanian, has it - in knowing upon what horse the saddle should be placed. A greater insult to the spirited individuals who, voluntarily renouncing domestic ...

Original Communication. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

    ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION. (Continued.)     The language of the blacks of both Islands is chiefly French, a kind of patois which is usually denominated Creole; few of them speak any English whatever, and those   who do, are chiefly the servants of the few English families, and the officers of the garrison. The same degree of jealousy exists between every caste, at both Islands - a kind of disunion, never agreeing, although seldom coming to any thing like an open rapture. The armed force at Bourbon would not be near sufficient to silence any thing like a general revolt among the slaves,   should such ever happen; but from present appearances, it seems improbable that it should ever be attempted - it would be almost impossible for any one caste alone to carry such into effect - amd it would be a certain failure to admit of ever so few of any other caste into their secret. The most numerous body of blacks ar...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Sir, - In you paper of last week there appeared a letter, signed " A Subscriber," which I can venture to say very much astonished many of your readers, not that I mean that those who know the authors, would be at all surprised at any thing they might do, but that you should have allowed so vile and calumnious an attack insertion in your valuable Journal. The writer commences with a panegyric on the lately arrived Minister, the Reverend Mr. Millar, but by the manner in which his name is brought forward, it is very evident that it was merely to mask the attack, and by the contrast, to give more effect to the words of the calumniator. The letter in question is so entirely beneath the notice of any sensible man - so palpably intended is it, to deride an individual of most excellent character, for some private reasons, that I shall not trouble you with any further comment, but with your leave I will set the public and yourself right, respecting the &a...

Highgate Pastorals. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

HIGHGATE PASTORALS.   The Duchess begs her darling little man Will come to Highgate, next week, if he can;   He said he would a month or two ago-   She wonders what should stop him doing so.     Can't tell what makes the Duke so fond of town, And always so reluctant to come down.     She trusts the best of company he keeps;   Of coarse the Duke in Piccadilly sleeps. It hurts her much to be obliged to state,   She thinks he's got most wonderful of late; Indeed, his conduct's any thing but right. She's often told bim what a horrid night Whenever he's in town she always passes- To her their marriage really quite a farce is. And then, her fears of John are getting truer- She's confident the man's a fancy to her;   He follows her about so she can't stir   Without she has that fellow after her. She's sure the man's some base design in view- If he a...

Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

MISCELLANEA.   The question of the East India Monopoly still occupies great and general attention in   England, and various examinations before the Committee appointed by the House of Com- mons to draw up a report upon the subject, have been published. Some of them disclose very curious facts, and to which we propose referring at some other time.- On the side of the Company, it is pretended that, by asking for perfect liberty of commerce with all coun- tries eastward of the Cape, the British nation   makes an " attack" on their property - the "Times" newspaper takes up the subject with great force, and says - How is the trade to China their property? Indeed, how is India itself their properly? They have had a lease of   both from Parliament for 20 years; the term is about to ex- pire; and whose is then the property of the dominions and       the commerce so granted in temporary and terminable ...

Literary Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

LITERARY VARIETIES. The following letter, which is taken from     Nichols's Illustration of Literary History, af-   fords a lively picture of what, we doubt not, has already been often experienced in part, by many of our readers, in their rural occupations. From the late Sir J. Dalrymple, Bart., to the late Admirai Dalrymple.                   Cranston, January 1, 1792.   My Dear Sir,               You ask me what I have been doing? To the best of my memory, what has passed since I came home, is an follows:-     Finding the roof bad, I employed slaters, at the peril of   their necks to repair it. They mended three holes, and made thirty themselves., I pulled down as many walls round the ho...

Quackery. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

QUACKERY.         An entertaining little periodical, which some time ago emanated from the London press, has, in some of its numbers exposed the true cha- racter and pretensions of some of the ignorant   practitioners, who, bearing death and destruc- tion in their train, are permitted, under the pro- tection of the Stamp-office, to palm themselves upon the Public, with unblushing effrontery. As the names of these persons, and their places of abode are freely given, it is to be supposed the narratives by which they are accompanied, are capable of proof. We will take, from among several, the following history of a " Doctor" Macdonald,, who at present figures in great style in the Kent road. The work in question thus prefaces its notice of this pre- tender:- " Scotchmen in general are remarkable for economy, in-   dustry, and perseverance, in that pursuit which obtains for the good things of this life. They a...

Irish Duelling. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 November 1830

IRISH DUELLING.   "Well, Batt," said I, "so your master fought another duel lately?" The man tossed his head and smiled. " He     did, Sir," said he, " an' a dbroller jewel never was fought before or after." " How was that, Batt?" " Why then I'll tell you, Sir.

TO CORRESPONDENTS.   The letters signed Veritas and Subscriber cannot appear in our columns. We shall at all times be anxious to receive favours   from the same parties on other subjects, but were we to insert the letters we could not of course object to publish the answer which might be sent in reply by Common Sense; besides, by giving them a place, in our columns, we conceive would be likely to increase that dissension which is already mani-   festly visible among some of the members of the Wesleyan Chapel. - The letters signed a Settler, Justitia, and several poetical favors, are duly appreciated and will be noticed.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.       Mr. Editor, - Before the literary labours of Messrs. Brady and Tate were brought to a happy delivery, it is said that tbe choral parts of our Church Service were left entirely to the taste of the Clerk, who was usually ex-officio the parochial Laureat, supplying Psalms, Epitaphs, Epithala- miums, &c. &c. Rochester was one day in a congregation, and after the accustomed chores, imitating the Bard's voice with its full nasal accompaniments, and the puritanical gra- vity and gesture fashionable among church-going folks in that day, he gave an additional stanza.         "Sternhold and Hopkins had geat qualms,       "When they translated David's psalms, "To make the heart right glad; "But had it been poor Davis's fate, "To hear thee sing, and then translate, "The minstrel had gone mad."     Such being ...

Hewitt, Stodart, Walkinshaw, Dare, and Field, at the head of a numerous body of efficient sol-   diery, approached the lines and were received with one una- nimous shout of applause from the whole of the infantry. Captains Hewitt and Stodart had an interview with the Field Marshal, and received orders to divide their corps into skirmishing parties of ten each, and advance beyond the   station occupied by the Elegant Extracts.
