To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

TO CORRESPONDENTS. No doubt our friends will consider us very negligent in   not having noticed the receipts of their various communica- tions. We have had on hand lately a more than usual press of European intelligence, which is plainly manifest by our co- lumns. The letters of "Justitia," two of "Peter Pry's,"     have been received, and at proper seasons shall be properly noticed. Those of our correspondents, signed "H. P.,"   "Anti-black Job," and "Trader," are evidently intended to     meet views which a Journalist should never sanction. The "Anti-black job" in particular plainly intimates that ridicule is aimed against an individual of whom we have the very highest opinion. If the writer will call for the letter, it is at his service. Our poetical friends have of late not favoured us with our usual supply of effusions. A Fragment, and an Ode on Paradise Minor, which, by the by, evince a good deal of ...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,- Having now by your leave submitted to the public a few observations, the result of long practical experience, with regard to live stock, allow me to say a few words upon the subject of tillage, which is either shamefully misunder- stood, or much neglected, with too many who call themselves farmers. One great complaint with them is, that their land is so bad, except here and there a more favourable spot, that it is net worth cultivating ; but I would tell all such, as well as many more, that very little soil indeed, in its original state, will repay the cultivater in the manner that is seemed to be expected ; for it is by a proper union of the chief component   parts of all land, viz., clay, sand, loam, and chalk, that really fertile soil can alone be obtained. Clay of itself, is fit only for a very few descriptions of crop ; but when incorporated with sand, becomes capable of producing almost any thing. A farmer, therefore, sho...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,- In your notice of the meeting advertised to take   place here to-day, you remarked, that you knew how these addresses were "got up," and that you had "speeches," &c.,   ready for any applicants; - could you inform me from what shop it is possible that such fulsome adulation as was here passed and embodied in an Address to His Excellency, could have been obtained ?       That the Address was "get up" is evident, as Mr.Robert- son (the constable - who was the chief mover and supporter of the same) acknowledged, that the resolutions had been shewn to Mr. Gordon, for his approval and appropriation. The fact is, to each of the dramatis personæ copy of the   resolutions, &c., was sent, with the marks of appropriation before alluded to. These persons, however, were not all such tame simpletons as to lend themselves to what they could not heartily join in;...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. That there is a prodigious quantity of quack- ery and mystification introduced into the public affairs of all nations, no common observer can doubt.; nor can there, we should imagine, be any more doubt among rational people but that the affairs of States are capable of being carried on with as much simplicity and clearness as those of individuals, were the actors in the scene inclined to take a straight instead of a tortuous path. It has been said of Prince Metternich, the most celebrated of the race of modern state mystifyers, that "it is impossible for that man to go straight-forward;     whatever he means to do he will try and accomplish, by a circuitous path, even when it is his obvious interest to pursue a straight one." But though Metternich, as the most promi- nent of the class, must be content to be put forward to bear the brunt of the odium, it is quite clear that he only takes the lead in a career in which he has abundance of...

Miscelian[?] a. (Letters on the Colony, No. 7.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

              MISCELLANEA.       (Letters on the Colony, No. 7.)         DEAR DONALD,       I have already told you, my friend, that the life of an emigrant in a newly settled country, is a life of hardship; and   indeed I think I must have said enough by way of elucidation,   to induce a ready belief with you, that it is so ; but if I had also added, that it is in many respects, too, a life of frights and dangers, I should have expressed no more than my own ob- servation has authorised ; on the other hand, there is a very great pleasure in a man's being able to say - "All, all our own shall the forest be, As to the step of the roe-buck free; None shall say, ' hither no further pass !' We will track each step through the wavy grass, And cha...

AGES AND OTHER PARTICULARS OF THE EUROPEAN SOVEREIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

AGES AND OTHER PARTICULARS OF THE EUROPEAN SOVEREIGNS. The following statement, the authenticity of which may be relied on, will no doubt prove interesting to our readers at the present time, as showing the probability of life of the principal Sovereigns of Europe, and the length of their reigns :- The oldest Sovereign is Charles X. of France, who is 73 years of age, tall in person, and very hale ; it is said he hunts and rides constantly, and is much in public. The Pope, Pius VIII. is 68, about the same age as his late Majesty, and in tolerable vigour. The church is usually considered favourable to longevity. The next is our own gracious So- vereign, William IV. who is 65, and has long been troubled with an asthmatic complaint. He is at present, however, in tolerable good health, and does not appear to be more than 50. His temperate habits, and practice of early rising, are too well known to need any further mention. Felix, King of Sardinia, is of the same age as our own Monarch, a...

Antiquity of Seals and Rings. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

ANTIQUITY OF SEALS AND RINGS.   Seals.- The use of seals is of high antiquity. Jezabel, in the 1st of Kings, chap, xxi., seals the orders she sent for Nabotb's death with the king's seal. Pliny tells us, at Rome they were become of absolute neceesity - insomuch, that a testament was null without the testator's seal, and the seal of seven witnesses. John Se'don says, " That there were no seals before the Conquest in England ; no king of this land, except the Con- fessor, before the Conquest, ever using in their charters more than subscription of name and crosses." Sir Edward Coke thinks there was an instance of King Edwy's making use of a seal about a hundred years before the Conquest, though some have doubted the authenticity of this charter, because it is certain that sealing wax was not then in common use. We are told, before the time of William the Conqueror, the English did not seal with wax, but only made a golden cross on the parchment, and sometimes an impression...

ADDRESS TO HIS EXCELLENCY. AT a Public Meeting, specially convened at Campbell-town, the 22nd day of December, 1830, for the purpose of considering of an Address to His Excellency Lieutenant Governor ARTHUR, for his late arduous exertions in pursuit of the hostile Aborigines,- BENJAMIN HORNE, Esq. being called to the Chair;   The following Resolutions were moved by Mr. HUGH   MURRAY, and seconded by Mr. JOHN LEAKE, and unani- mously approved by the Meeting,- 1. - That an Address be presented to His Excellency Lieutenant Governor ARTHUR, embodying the grateful sen- timents of this Meeting for the paternal anxiety of His Ex-   cellency, so long and assiduously evinced for the protection of the white population of Van Diemen's Land from the atro- cities of the Aborigines, and for his having superintended in person the forces lately employed for their capture, for the philanthropic purpose of keeping them in a place of safety, and teaching them the...

The King's Own. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 14 January 1831

THE KING'S OWN.     This is the title of a recently published work, which may, with the strictest propriety, be called a naval novel, as the narrative is almost exclusively confined to shipboard, and the cha- racters are, with equally few exceptions, en- tirely of salt-water breed. The nature and incidents of the story, which possessed conside- rable interest, leave little doubt of the truth of the report which makes the author an officer of rank in the British navy. But though his de- scriptions have the genuine marine colouring, they are never overcharged with professional pedantism. More general information and knowledge of the world than usually falls to the lot of the gallant individuals of the class to which he belongs, seems to have preserved him from a too common fault which oftener offends than gratifies the reader. His charac- ters, it is true, are rather sketchy, and would have been much improved had they been more filled up ; but as far as they ...

Junius.         We have received various communications from the interior, expressive of the inconve- nience and annoyance to which respectable in- dividuals are repeatedly subjected by the over officiousness of little gentlemen, who - reading the Acts of Council, and other authorities that are put into their hands, in a more literal man- ner than could ever have been intended by their framers - seek every possible means of hunting up informations, in order that a penalty may be inflicted. This is one, among many proofs, of the necessity that exists for an alteration in our system of Government, so that we may be re- presented by men who have some little know- ledge of business, sufficient at least to save us from such Acts as ...

Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

Public Meeting* It would seem by some accounts that have reached us, of what is doing in foreign parts, that our Island is not the ouly place in this quarter of the globe, where Public Meetings and Addresses are in fashion, for we have be- fore us the particulars of one that was held, a few mouths since, at Bolliboo, the capital of Mallicollowo. The Meeting was not altogether j dissimilar to our own ; it will, however, be un- j derstood by the following extract : Bolliboo, October 10, 1830. A Publio Meeting of the inhabitants of this newly-settled country was lately assembled for the purpose of preparing an address to the Ein peror, in consequence of an unsuccessful expedition that bad lately been made against the Porrichee tribe of the most distant province of Lummorhu, from whose depredations the distant interior settlers of Bolliboo had long sustained considerable damage. The expedition had been costly in the extreme-no less than fifteen different tribes, each composed of one hun...

HOBART TOWN.         JANUARY 21, 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 all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius. The tone of fulsome panegyric which is now adopted by some of our address and thanks- giving gentry, so far exceeds all the bounds of common sense or discretion, that it carries with it, in a measure, its own refutation ; and cannot be viewed any otherwise, by the en- lightened mind for whom it is intended, than as breathing a spirit of adulation that reflects little honor upon any party. What, in the name of goodness, is all this about? surely it cannot be pretended that sufficient cause exists, in the re- sult of the late Aboriginal expedition ! and we have a very great dislike to mixing up and con- fusing together three or four covert objects, un- der a simple avowed and open one.

Sydney News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

SYDNEY NEWS. We this morning received files of the Sydney Journals, up to the 11th Instant.- There does not appear to be any thing new stirring in the Sister Colony. The markets, which had so suddenly improved, have again resumed their former depressed state, and the price of nine shillings per bushel for Wheat, which we quoted in a late number as passing current, is alone ac- counted for by the heavy rains, which prevented the farmers from bringing their produce to mar- ket. The price of Wheat at Sydney, from the   24th December to the 11th January, remained stationary at four shillings and sixpence per bushel, with no prospect of an advance. We now lay before our Readers such extracts from the Sydney Papers, as, upon a cursory glance, - which, in consequence of the time of their coming to hand, is all we can this week bestow on them, - appeared likely to interest them. This day the Church Corporation expires. " Sic transit Gloria Mundi." It is to be hoped, before de- ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,- Having had to pay £5 9s. 6d. for a dog being seen on my premises, I should like to know how far the constable who gave his evidence in the case did his duty. First, he swore that he observed the dog once in the yard ; the second time between the street and the yard ; and the third time ly- ing out in the street. Now, Sir, he must have known the dog was not licensed, therefore why did he not destroy it when he found it in the street ? How is it, Mr. Editor, that the dog still lies in the street every day ? Is it to extort the sum of £10? Now, Mr. Editor, am I to commit a felony by taking out a license to save myself from the power of these infesting sharks? - for be it remembered the dog is not, nor ever was, mine. Or is it more advisable for me to pay as often as it may suit their pleasure to lay informations?   Q.
