To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 December 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR, , . i ¡j ¡ Upon perusing a late Svdney paper, I perceived that a set- tler named Macpherson had commenced a civil action against Mr* Hely, the Superintendent of Convicts, for trespass, in taking away the plamtift s assigned servant-not because the master had behaved cruelly or tyrannically, or starved or otherwise ill-used his servant, but because it was tbc pleasure of this Government officer to deprive the inabter ot hu, man's services. Na one will deny that ii a master acts with cruelty towards his assigbed servant, it is a duty to common humanity to relieve the sufferer, but this should only be done by proper investigation before the Magistrates. It is equally clear, that to deprive any master of the services of bis assigned servants, »t a moment's notice, without a trial, or without a cause, would work a wanton and malicious injury against the as signée, who, whether a farmer, a manufacturer, or a trader, might be ruined and reduced to ...

Miscellanea. Dear Donald, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 December 1830

MISCELLANEA.                 DEAR DONALD, You will recollect, Donald, that when I wrote you from   Madeira, I mentioned in the number of our passengers, a family which partly consisted of two young ladies. Perhaps at the time your sagacity might have led you to suspect that   your friend was a little smitten, but when one finds the ideal conceptions that have been long formed with respect to female beauty, temper, and disposition, all centred in one being, Cupid is very apt to make quick work of it. You know you have often heard me admire a brunette complexion, hazle eyes, dark-brown hair, an arched brow, a taper waist, sufficiently embonpoint elsewhere, moderately tall, well rounded arms, a pretty ancle, a Chinese foot, and graceful movements; when   all these, were found united in Miss ---------, a well culti- vated mind, a fair share of accomplishments...

Supreme Court. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 December 1830

Supreme Court.         On Wednesday morning, His Honor the Chief Justice   came down to the Court, for the purpose of passing sentence upon the prisoners capitally convicted at the last sitting. His Honor explained to those who were placed at the bar, the causes that had operated to effect the delay between the period of their trials, and that of receiving their sentence, in timating that a feeling of humanity had prompted him to avoid a more early day, as it would have left the individuals under suspense as to their ultimate doom, up to the time when His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor ceased his personal exertions against the Aborigines.   The following ten persons were then directed to answer to   their names:-       George Scott and George Parker, for housebreaking ; John Pritchard for being found illegally at large under a Co lonial sentence to Ma...

Combustion of the Human Body by Habitual Drunkenness, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 December 1830

COMBUSTION OF THE HUMAN BODY BY HABITUAL DRUNKENNESS. Many curious examples of this are given, in the history of   intoxicating liquors, contained in the third volume off Dr. Lardner's Cabinet Cyclopædia. In these cases the body became so saturated with spirits, that it took fire either spon- taneously or by the proximity of flame, which, otherwise, could have produced no injury. We extract the following:- Mary Clues, aged firty, was much addicted to intoxication. Her propensity to this was such, that, for about a year, scarcely a day passed in which she did not drink half a pint of rum or aniseed water. Her health gardually declined; she was attacked with jaundice and was confined to her bed. She still continued her old habit of drinking. One morning she fell on the foor; and weakness having prevented her get- ting up, she remained so till some one entered and put her to bed. The following night she wished to be left alone. A woman, on quitting her, had put coal on the...

COLONIA[?] TIMES HOBART TO Win: DECEMBER 10, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 December 1830

HOBART TOWN : DECEMBER 10, 1830. Let it be impressed upon yonr 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. Well, the good people of Hobart Town   for once have had their Raree Show, and we are now to consider King William the Fourth as our sovereign liege Lord.- It is surprising that in all affairs of this sort, the Government of New South Wales should so regularly take the lead of us. Is it that the officers of State   around the Governor of that Colony are of a different calibre to our own, more accustomed to the routine and etiquette of court affairs, and able to walk without leading strings? or is it that the gubernatorial faculties of General Darling are of that character which permit him to have an uncontrolled will of his own, and so dares to think and act for himself more than we see attempted elsewhere? Whatever it &...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 24 December 1830

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. TERMINATE SIR,-The only Doctors who have any rank or pretension to precedence in England, are those of Oxford, Cambridge, and of Trinity College, Dublin - this College being of royal creation. A man who has precedence of no one in England, has precedence only according to his local rank in an English Colony. What rank has the Government Printer, or the junior Assistant Surgeon? If the Scotch Commissioners for     the Union had descended so low in trucking a bargain for   their country, as even to solicit the recognition of their "degrees," the honor of the English nation would have taken   the alarm, nor have suffered the indignity of such a monstrous proposition. The Union, so befeficial to Scotland, could not have been carried - the Scotch knew their business, and had too much discretion to press the point. Scotch Advocates   cannot plead in England without being called by the Eng...

ENGLISH INTELLINGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 24 December 1830

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.         We have so many important subjects for our Readers' perusal this week, that we shall not   now offer our usual observations on the state of   affairs at home, wishing to devote to it more time and space than at present it is possible for us to do. We will briefly say, however, that the whole aspect of English affairs denotes Reform, as far as retrenchment of expenditure is concerned, but no further. The popularity of the King is such, that, whenever the altera- tions in the present expensive and ruinous form of Government may take place, we are confi- dent he will always be upheld and cherished, as he deserves to be. It is said that on his being asked what should be the first act of his reign, he replied, "My Lord Duke, to check the   overgrown wealth of the Church." - The Gene- ral Election for Parliament had nearly termi- nated, and in scanning over the names of...
