ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 31 December 1830

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.   As news from this scene of death (Sierra Leone) is always anxiously received by the feeling part of our countrymen, I take advantage of the present opportunity of addressing you. This Colony has, for some months back, and up to the arrival of our present Governor (Col. Findlay),   been in a state bordering on open rebellion. Some of the few remaining individuals, after the late dreadful epidemic, so far from feeling thankful for the preservation of their lives, awoke from the cowardly lethargy into which they were plunged (while the disease was raging) and commenced sow- ing the seeds of discord and dissension. Eleven slave vessels, unadjudicated, were lying in the harbour, the officers and crews of all suffering, as usual, from the effects of the cli- mate, and from the filthy state of the vessels, on board of which they were obliged to remain until the broils and squab- bles of the Government were settled. Now, thank God, &...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.       Mr. EDITOR,- Noticing that you have nobly come for- ward on behalf of the Colonists against tba nuisance now in   existance called the Dog Act, I beg leave to offer the fol- lowing case for insertion in your Journal :- One of my men, whom I found it necessary to have punished some month or so back, I have every reason to believe leagued himself with a worthy constable, of dog-killing notoriety, in order to be revenged. Consequently, for this purpose, after no doubt   duly considering and weighing the matter, he agreed to swear that I harboured an unlicensed dog. I was summoned to the Police Office to answer the complaint, and - although I pro- cured a creditable witness, who swore that the dog was not     mine, and named the owner, adding that it never had been considered as mine by any body aboat the house, and although the man to whom I before allud...

Quarter Sessions, Hobart Town. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 7 January 1831

QUARTER SESSIONS, HOBART TOWN. This Court sat on Monday for the trial of offenders, JOSEPH HONE, Esq. in the Chair, assisted by P.A. MUL- GRAVE, Esq, and JOHN LORD, Esq.         Margaret Burns was charged with stealing a China bowl. the property of Mr. John Young, of the River Ouse, with whom she had formerly lived as servant, previous to her mar- riage with a man named Burns. Evidence was given as to the identity of the article stolen, for Mr. Young swore possi- tively that he had purchased it in Holland, and brought it out   with him to this Colony; and Mrs. Barnes, of the Clyde, proved that she purchased it of the prisoner, who stated to her that she had brought it with her from Liverpool. It ap- peared that the woman had been in custody nine months on this charge, and that it was uncertain how long the stolen ar- ticle had been abstracted, so that the whole proof against   the prisoner rested on the fa...

Court of Requests FOR HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 7 January 1831

COURT OF REQUESTS   FOR HOBART TOWN.   On Saturday the Court held its ninth sitting for the year 1830. As it was only for the trial of causes within the Dis- trict of Hobart Town, the list ws not of that formidable description that is generally exhibited ; 53 causes however were set down for trial, and several were defended at con- siderable length, but the Commissioner went through the list, and the Court rose about 4 o'clock, by which time the whole had been decided. It was understood that the next sitting would commence on Thursday, the, 27th of the present month, and that it would be for the trial of country as well as town causes, which must befiled forthwith, as intimated bt the advertisement in another part of our Paper.

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 7 January 1831

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Sir,- In your last number, wherein you insert my letter   with regard to the management of cows, you use the word "milking" for "soiling," when you say - " in England the superior advantage of milking cows the whole year round, &c.," and which entirely alters both the sense and meaning.   At the same time therefore, that I beg to correct this, allow me to say a few words further, upon the system of soiling, or feeding the animals with grass and other produce that is cut and taken to them in a confined space, and which, advan- tageous as it is, still remains but little understood. One ob- objection that some make to it is, that they have not ground wherein they can grow what is required; but I beg to tell all   such, that they have little real idea how small a quantity of     ground is fully sufficient. One quarter of an acre, well at- tended to, will produce a succession of ...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 7 January 1831

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.     The number and extent of the robberies com-   mitted by the gangs of London thieves who resorted to Wind- sor during the funeral ceremonies of the late King, are known to have exceeded all former depredations on any similar oc- casion; and the quantity of money, watches, &c. that fell into the hands of the marauders must, from the reports given by the sufferers, hate been of an immense amount, in value almost to surpass belief. Amongst the losses in this way there was one marked with peculiar circumstances, as well from the nature of the article stolen, and its value, as for the singular manner in which it fell into the hands of the ex- pert thief who obtained it. Edmond Lodge, Esq. the author of that ingenious, able, and laborious work on British por- traits that bears his name, and who fills the office of Norroy King of Arms, was of course officiating at the ceremony as Norroy, and wore on the occasion the ap...

A Night in Summer. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 7 January 1831

          A NIGHT IN SUMMER.         The beauteous moon's pale trembling beam Now silvers o'er this hemisphere, And hill, and vale, and tree and stream,           In sober loveliness appear.             Between the foliage, thick and green,         It sends a gleam of soften'd light           Upon yon church, that's faintly seen,       Amid the dusky gloom of night. Sometimes, a passing fleecy cloud Obscures its splendour for a while; But, when it's freed again from shroud,         Its rays more beautifully smile. &...

Our readers will enjoy the   amusement its perusal is calculated to afford, without par- ticipating in the painful sensations which so true a picture naturally awakens in our own breast :- As we sat turning over the leaves of our subscription list the other morning, we looked up and saw our old frlend Judge Puffendorff before us.             "I see you have not learned all the secrets of your trade (says he), and I have called to give you a little wholesome   advice,"                       We have great pleasure in receiving advice - "And too little discretion in following it (said he) - I see how it is; but no matter; I will open t...

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN [?] JANUARY 7, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 7 January 1831

HOBART TOWN: JANUARY 7, 1831. 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 your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights.   Junius. Addresses and speechifying are now the order of the day, and if all that so reaches the chair of state, or even half of it, be taken its gospel, His Excellency the Lieutenant Go- vernor had need of a more than usual share of humility or lowliness of spirit, otherwise the ministration to vanity thus offered, may be likely to produce its not unusual fruits, and thus come to be felt by all the Colonists. We ourselves have a very great respect for Colonel ARTHUR - few perhaps more so - and none can be moro happy than we are in seeing his de- serts acknowledged and appreciated, but we own we think that the tone breathed in some of   the Addresses that are now being got up in all parts of the country, would be rather more in place and character, had the...
