THE SOUTH African Commercial Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 February 1829

THE SOUTH African Commercial Advertiser. It would have Veeh seen in a late number of our Journal, - that the above independent Paper, which had been suppressed twice at the Cape of Good Hope, upon one occasion by the arbitrary powVrof Lord Charles Somcrset, before he »as recalled, and upon another by Lieutenant Governor Boil It Ki:, has again been placed by Mr. Huskisson, to quote his own words, " under the FjioTECTION of, and subject to the Law;"-and now that the Constitution of tile Cupe hos un- dergone a complete change for the best, especially in Trial by Jury having been granted to the people of that Colony, there is no fear of any moie suppressions o» political removals for alleged offences." Mr. Huskisson, as a British Minister and Legislator, knows well the value of ün honest Press, in checking the acts of the Government servants, and contronUng the meastues ofthe Colonial Authorises.

Check to Commerce. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 February 1829

Check to Commerce. Mr. Editor,-Having some of my pi-operty in Barbadqes, I am at a loss to conceive why the productions oí the West India Islands are to ha'.è such duties imposed on their pro- duce as, i lp fact, to make them piohibitory in the British Colony of Vim Dicmcn's Land, I am ajVare that the Colo- ny was foimeily considered a Penal Settlement, and that prohibitory duties weie considered iudispensably necessary in the article of auicnt spirits, to the good/order und maintenance of discipline of "offeudeis ;" but now, as this Colony has emerged fio,m the odious appellation of a Penal Settlement, (although offeudeis are sent here t,he same as at Bermuda, &c.) I am at a los» to know why {he productions of.the Cape ,of Good Hope and the West Indies should have such duties imposed on theil produce, as to make them prohibitory to the exporter and importer. It will alford nie much pleasure to hear your ideas ou this interesting subject to commerce. Irish butter is admitted...

Chief Police Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 February 1829

Chief Police Magistrate It is generally understood, as we noticed in a late number, that Mr. Mulgrave, the Police Magistrate at Launceston, has been or is to be appointed Chief Police Magistrate of the Island, in the room of Mr. Humphrey, who has retired on a pension of £400 a-year. We should think, that if this report be true, the appointment is only temporary, for many reasons. We perfectly agree with a Correspondent in a con-   temporary print, who says " From my experience in the world, which has been of some standing, I consider the office of Police Magistrate of   more public importance than is generally attached to it, and if important in general, how peculiarly so here, in a Colony like this, I conceive that the Chief Police Magistrate should be a Gentleman of legal knowledge, of high standing and long experience in the law. By having a professional Gen- tleman of the above description at the head of our Police Establishment, I contend that many of ...

Death - In our last we briefly noticed the death of Miss Ross on Friday, the 30th ult. aged 22, from dysentry, (and not occasioned by eating green or unripe apples, as erroneously stated in our last, after a short but se- vere illness of only seven days.) This highly accomplished and amaible young lady was the sister of Mr. Solicitor Ross, who had only arrived in this Colony by the ship Lang, three weeks back. The premature demise of this young lady is the more grievous, and no doubt more poignant to the feelings of her disconsolate brother, from the circumstanoe of his hav- ing enjoyed her dearly-prized and, truly beloved society for only a few hours after her arrival, ere his professional duties called upon him to proceed on the Northern Circuit to Laun- ceston, leaving her blooming, healthy, and happy in the bosom of attached friends, who mourn with unaffected sor- row her early departure from this transitory life. But what   can pourtray his distraction and woe, upo...

The Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 February 1829

Ir. - The Harvest* ^ The wheat Harvest' lias ' iii" several 'districts commtnoed, . under the most promising auspices, evincing every prospect of a most abundant crop ; yet we regret to find, that from the statement of many of the Settlers, that there is an unusual quantity of smut-in fact, in some few places, nothing but smut has been the produce. ' We' can aocount for 'this in no other way than from the unceasing wetness of the late season. But, upon the whole, we have every reason to congratulate the speculating Agriculturist upon the fair prospect of his being enabled to export equally as largely, and to much more advan- tage, than the former season-from the fact that the great de- ficiency in the harvest in the sister Colony will require \ large supply from this Island at a fair profitable price, as the very great demand already in requisition of 20,000 bushels by one .enterprising speculator, intended to supply the Sydney market, evidently proves.

Harvest Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 February 1829

Harvest1 -Labour. We feel much satisfaction in being able lo announce the de- crease of charge made for reaping this season, having been ma- terially reduced from 15s. to 9s. per acre-including victuals. In England, only 2s. 4d. is paid for reaping per acre, and no provisions. We feel a greater degree of pleasure in announcing the deciease of price in the charge hitheito observed for fann- ing labour, feeling satisfied from the uniform and determined resolve of some few practical and extensive Settlers to deci; dedly and firmly discountenance over-charge in every species of agricultural labour. Formerly, it was'the custom not only to pay the labourer, but to find him in provisions ; the conse- quence of which,' more food was in most instances destroyed tkan made use of-it not uufrequeutly happening that as much provisions was thrown to the dogs as would have supported ' an equal number of men-making all fanner's labour double what it ought to be in those days.

The celebarted Statement. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 February 1829

The celebarted Statement. Mr. EDITOR,-1 would not again trouble you or the pub- lic upon the above subject, but that I find all your contem- poraries have taken it up, and piomise to keep it up. I ara glad of this, for the sole reason that discussion by such able hands will no doubt throw light upon so «ibshuse a portion of the science of political economy, and puibably lead to the elu- cidation of truth. Some curious calculations have appeared in print, embracing only part of the subject. The lo~.t Cou- rier, under the signatuie of Z., has taken the most apt and comprehensive view of,it. I would ofier some comments on. them, but that I fear to tire j our patience. I trust, Sir, you will, with jour usual candour, pardon me for observing, that the authoi ized explanation gn en at the foot of my last letter, is not likely to lead to that desirable end, or to make " darkness visible."

Death of Mr. Robert Howe.   The arrivals this week from the sister Colony of New South Wales have conveyed to us the melancholy news of the death of the Editor and Proprietor of the Sydney Gazette, on the evening of the 29th of January last, Mr. ROBERT HOWE, eldest son of the late GEORGE HOWE, Esq. the Australian Franklin. We, more than the generality of his friends and the Public, have to deplore his untimely fate, by DROWNING (in the exercise of paternal tenderness, in attempting to rescue his infant child from a watery grave.) On the announcement, so sudden and unexpected, and scarcely to be credited, occa- sioned, from our long intimacy and private friendship (although for the last few years strong public controversionists) more deeply felt and grieved for—recalling to our minds, with pain- ful regret that the awful estrangement of acquaintance should have happened, without a reconciliation of political ideas, that in a great measure so varied and disunited those ti...

Latest English News. [TO THE 25TH OF SEPT.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 February 1829

Latest English News. [TO THE 25TH OF SEPT.]       His Majesty we are sorry to announce was confined to his apartments at the Royal Lodge, Windsor, with a slight at- tack of the gout, which had left a weakness in the knees---not accompanied, however, by any pain. In other respects His Majesty enjoys excellent health---The most active prepara- tions were making at Windsor Castle, which was to be rea- dy for the reception of His Majesty in the course of No- vember. The King was present at Egham Races, and wit- nessed his own favourite mare win one race. Egham has never been visited in this public way by an English Monarch since the time of King JOHN. The King, one paper says, was on the eve of contracting a new alliance. The frequent jour- nies of Sir WILLIAM KNIGHTON to the Continent and back, gave rise to this rumour. It shews, however, one thing flat- tering, that His Majesty's health can be in no very preca- rious state, when his loyal people ...
