Queen Elizabeth's Speech to the Lords, at her Accession. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

QUEEN ELIZABETH'S SPEECH TO THE LORDS, AT HER ACCENSION. " My Lords, - The law of nature moveth me to sorrow for my sister ; the burden that is fallen upon me maketh me ama- zed, and yet considering I am God's creature, ordained to bear his appointment, I will yield thereto, requiring from the bottom of my heart that I may have assistance of his grace to to be the minister of his heavenly will in this office now com- mitted to me. And as I am but one body, naturally considered, though by his permission a body politic to govern, so I shall require you all, my Lords, (chiefly you of the nobility, every one in his degree and power,) to be assistant to me ; that I with my ruling, and you with your service, may make a good account to Almighty God, and leave some comfort to our pos- terity on earth. " I mean to direct all my actions by good advise and coun- sel, and therefore, at this present, considering that divers of   you be of the ancient nobility, having your beginning ...

Aphorisms. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

APHORISMS. The profane swearer sins for nothing, upon no temptation, for no credit ; unless it is the credit not to be believed. Those who think themselves wise, are the least so of any. He that is dishonest himself, always suspects others. Those who are often angry and for every trifle, in a little time will be little regarded ; and those who reprove in a pas- sion will not be regarded when they reprove with reason. Self-conceit is the chief ingredient to make fools, which with ignorance completes them. He that knows most, knows he has most to learn. Knowledge alone does not amount to virtue, but certainly there is little virtue without knowledge. It is easier to commit a second fault than a first, but much easier to repent of a first than a second offence.   Right and truth are greater than any power - indeed all power is limited by right. Only madmen and fools are pleased with themselves ; no wise man is good enough to his own satisfaction. He that never changed any ...

To a Wife. During a period of seven Indisposition. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

TO A WIFE,   During a period of severe Indisposition.             I said I would, have thee, in want, or in wealth,     Through cloud, and through sunshine, in sickness, in health, And fear not, my love, when thy spirits are, weak,     The truth I have plighted I ever will break. "Aye sickness ; but sickness it touches the heart With a feeling, where how many feelings have part ! There's magic in soothing the wearisome hour, Pity rears up the stem, and Hope looks for the flower. The rose smells as sweetly in sunshine and air,     But the green-house has all our affection and care;   The lark sings as nobly, while soaring above,     But the bird that we nurse is the bird that we love. I have loved thee in sickness, I'll love thee in health,     And if wa...

Miscellanea[?] (Letters on the Colony, No. 8.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

MISCELLANEA.   (Letters on the Colony, No. 8.) DEAR DONALD, Among the recommendations possessed by this Colony, are its inns and its District Courts of Justice. The former are both numerous and good, affording accommodation to travel- lers quite equal to most of the similar country establishments in England, and the latter are an efficient protection to the inhabitants of their respective neighbourhoods against suffer- ing either in their persons or their property, from tbe sort of characters of which much of the population is composed. I was, some little time ago, an accidental witness of an occur- rence that occasioned my attending at one of these Courts as a witness, and I will endeavour, by describing the scene, to make you acquainted with the manner in which blind Justice contrives now and then to peep from under tbe veil that is laid to obscure her faculties of vision. The cause that led me to be a spectator, I will narrate at some other time, my business at prese...

Literary Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

LITERARY VARIETIES. MR. EDITOR,- I have been a good deal amused with the contents of your back-page, and if you think the two following instances of remarkable characters, worthy to be included under the observations with which, in a late paper, you prefaced the story of a Mr. Henry Welby, they are much at your service, for the entertainment of your readers. - I am, Sir, your humble Servant, A CONSTANT READER. Hobart Town, Jan. 18, 1831. Mr. Thomas Clarke, the late proprietor of Exeter 'Change, was one of the most singular and well-known characters of the metropolis. He himself occupied nearly one-half the building with the sale of cutlery, turnery, &c. ; and here he amassed an immense fortune - every thing he sold was the very best of its kind - every thing was for ready money - he never made two prices, and these excellent rules, added to the   moderation of his profits, secured him that regular flow of     custom which filled his cof...

Singular Narrative. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

SINGULAR NARRATIVE. An awful affair was lately brought to light at Marsden, a small manufacturing village in the West Riding of the county of York, the following narrative of which may be relied on as correct, having been committed to writing from the dictation of one of the parties intimately connected with the circum- stance :- On the 3d of November last, three young men, of the names of George Proston, Joseph Becket, and David Hay- thorn, left Dewsbury, to go, as they said, to Manchester in search of employment. That evening they stopped at a place near Marsden, and on the following day two of them, Proston and Haythorn, returned to Huddersfield, Proston being with- out a hat. Since then Proston has left the country, and the two gave it out that Becket had proceeded onwards to Ame- rica. On Sunday last, Becket's father was accosted by Hay- thorn, who said he was come to make a full disclosure about his son Joseph, supposed to have sailed for America ; that he had had it on his mi...

Christmas Festival at the Inner Temple. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 21 January 1831

CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL AT THE INNER TEMPLE. Gerald Leigh, in his " Accidence of Armory," gives the following account of a splendid Christmas festival in the Inner Temple :- The hero of the festival was Dudley, Earl of Leicester, who assumed the character of Palaphilos, Prince of Sophie. He was entertained by a person, repre- senting a Sovereign Prince, and had for his officers the Lord Chancellor, Privy Seal, Treasurer, the Chief Justices of the King's Bench, Common Pleas, and Chief Baron of the Ex- chequer, besides many other dignitaries of tbe law, and up- wards of four score of the guard. The author thus com- mences :- "After I travelled through the East parts of the unknown world, to understand the deeds of armes, and so ar- riving in the fair river of Thames, I landed within half a league from the City of London, which was (as I conjectured) in December last, and drawing near the city, suddenly heard the shot of double cannons, in so great a number and so ter- rible, that it darken...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.                                     Mr. Editor - As your Paper frequently abounds with entertaining matter, perhaps you can continue occasionally to allow a corner to my suggestions upon Agriculture, which although less attractive to some, I flatter myself are of a nature to be useful to others. Having spoken in my last of the nature of soils, and of the necessity of correcting a super- abundance of any description. I will now proceed to the next step ; which is, the best method of accomplishing this object.                 Perhaps of all manures or correctives, the most powerful is salt; as it has been proved over...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.         Mr. Editor - In the Van Diemen's Land Almanack, published by yourself, is a passage with respect to the Gaol of this town, in which you justly designate it as a disgrace to our public buildings. Perhaps the following account of the celebrated House of Correction, at Ghent; long proverbial as one of the best managed prisons in Europe, may present a suggestion to those in whose hands these things are, which   may not be without its service.- Your humble servant, HUMANITAS.     "It was inhabited," says our authority, " by 159 male prisoners, each of who had a separate bed-room; furnished with a bedstead, a straw bed, a mattress, a pillow, a pair of sheets, and two blankets in winter - one in summer. Their food waa equally good and sufficient, their linen and sheets regularly changed, and the attention paid to the preservation of their health in every r...

                    TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. TERMINATE Sir,- In the last number of your Journal, you state, that at Sydney, " the price of wheat, from the 24th December to the 11th January, remained stationary at four shillings and sixpence per bushel, with no prospect of an advance " Now, Sir, strange as it may appear, I perceive, in the Hobart Town   Courier of last week, under the head of "Sydney News,"   that the Australian of the 31st of December states, that " wheat averaged seven shillings per bushel," in the Sydney market at that period. - For the information of your country Readers, I have to request that you will give insertion to this communication , and remain, Sir, yours &c., OBSERVER. In again referring io the Sydney Journals, we find, that the Sydney Gazette quotes wheat at 4s. 6d per bushel, fr...

MISCELLANEA.         (Letters on the Colony, No. 9.)             DEAR DONALD,   In describing to you, in the manner you requested, the   general state of society and other particulars with regard to this Colony, I cannot always enliven my sketches by the re- lief of passing incidents, but must confine myself to dry matter of fact, in the same way that is practised by regular tourists - thus, in my last, I gave you a description of a scene that came under my observation between a master and his servant in the presence of a Magistrate; but as you per-   haps have little notion how such things are accomplished as that a refusal to wipe little Johnny 's nose - or to clean Miss Debby's shoes half a dozen times in as many hours - or a glum look with a shrug of the shoulders at being requested to act scavenger to the cat, w...

Romance of real, Life. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 28 January 1831

ROMANCE OF REAL LIFE.       It is not generally known, but it is a fact of indisputable authenticity, that the marriage of the parents of one of our Noble families, alike distinguished for their private and their   public virtues, was brought about under circumstances as singular in their nature as ever enlivened the pages of ro- mance. The interesting story may be narrated in a few words: - The Earl of --------- had an only daughter, whose personal accomplishments were only exceeded by her vir-   tuous disposition and conduct. He had long been on terms of great intimacy and friendship with the Duke of ------------; and it had been agreed with the two Noblemen, that, in the event of the parties more immediately interested consenting to the match, a marriage should be consummated between the eldest son of the latter, and the only daughter of the for-   mer. The Marquis of --------- was at this time making t...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.       Towards the end of last week, secret in- formation was received, that a vessel lying in the river, and laden partly with artillery, called the Mary, with a red streak was on the eve of sailing with an expeditionary force against the Spanish Government; on which orders were   issued to Lieutenant Simpson, of the Swallow preventive cutter, (accompanied with a full description of her,) to board her, should he fall in with her, in obedience to which, he went in pursuit of, and on Thursday evening descried her, near Blackwall Reach, and after a smart chase he succeeded, about sunset, in boarding her, when, on overhauling her, he discovered a large stock of fire arms, consisting of one   hundred and fifty muskets, with bayonets for all , fifty cut-   lasses , fifty common swords, four officers' ditto, four saddles, and about 2,000 rounds of ball cartridge. Lieut. Simpson lost no time ...
