Anecdotes of the present King. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 February 1831

ANECDOTES OF THE PRESENT KING. TERMINATE We have great pleasure in relating, from an authentic   source,a few instances of kindness in the new Sovereign,   immediately after his accession to the throne.             It was some time ago mentioned to his Majesty that the Lady of the late Sir George Hoste had been left in em-   barrassing circumstances. A few days ago, the King, although   occupied with the important duties of his high station, ordered a message to be sent to Lady Hoste, informing her that his Majesty had been pleased to appropriate     apartments for her reception in the Palace at Hampton   Court.       A widow lady, of infirm health, residing in Hampton Court Palace, has for some time past been endeavouring, in vain, to get the name of her daughter included in th...

Interestiny French Woman [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 February 1831

INTERESTING FRENCH WOMAN.     I witnessed here a very interesting, but I fear unfortu- nately too usual an occurrence, that took place in the capture   of the convoy and enemy's baggage, &c. at La Fere Cham- penuise. Being forward in the melee, I perceived that some of the Cossacks, most probably from Bashkir, had not only secured a French colonel's cateche and baggage, but one of   them had seized his wife, whose cries rent the air, and with the aid of two other gallant Tartars was placing her behind     him. I will not detail the frequent histories of lawless troops, nor add to these pages instances of barbarity which I fear have been too justly given of the conduct of the Russian   predatory hordes in their march through France ; but I re-   flct with satisfaction that it was my good fortune to rescue, even for a moment, a lovely and most interesting French- woman from ...

OPINIONS RESPECTING THE PUNISHMENT OF DEATH OF VARIOUS AUTHORS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 February 1831

                OPINIONS RESPECTING THE PUNISHMENT OF DEATH OF VARIOUS AUTHORS.         Our penal laws have too frequently been the work of a few, influenced by various improper passions, and not directed by that coolness which Legislators ought always to possess. They have too often been made upon the spur of the occasion, as Lord Byron expressed it ; and when so made, their revisal had been afterwards neglected ; or we should not in the eighteenth century : have had reason to acknowledge with shame that stealing a swan : breaking down a cherry-tree : and letting out the water of a fish-pond : being seen in the company of gypsies : with upwards of one hundred and fifty other actions which a man is daily liable to commit, are declared by English Acts of Parliament crimes worthy of instant death. Is not this a fact at which Englis...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 11 February 1831

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. We have reason to believe that a very exten-   sive alteration is about to be made with regard to the rank and emoluments of the pursers of the navy. The plan may possibly receive some fur- ther modification before it will be adopted ; but we believe the following are the general features of the proposed change : - All those pursers who de- cline employment, or who have done so since the peace, to be superannuated at their present half- pay. Those who have served at least five years during the late war, and who are now unfit for service, to be allowed to retire on two shillings a day above their present half-pay. The list to be then remodelled, and three classes to be formed, called commissary-general, commissary, and de- puty-commissary. Commissaries-general, of which there will be but few, to be at least of twenty years' standing, and to have served at least fifteen years as commissaries or deputy-commissaries;   these will be appoin...

Miscellanes. (Letter on the Colony, No. 16.) MY DEAR DONALD, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 11 February 1831

MISCELLANEA. (Letters on the Colony, No.10.) MY DEAR DONALD, Although the government of this Colony consuls not, as does that of the Mother Country, of Kings, Lords, and   Commons, yet a power superior to that of the King of England is vested in the Governor, and, as integral parts of this ad- ministration, are two Councils, the one for advising, and the other for enacting. In the executive part of tbe business is also a whole host of Magistracy, stipendiary and others ; and lower down, as links of the same chain, are a numerous body of Constables.   Perhaps, considering the nature of the chief part of the population of tbe Colony, nothing could be better contrived, so far as theory goes, or more suitable to the exigencies of the case, than is this form of government ; but their is nothing perfect under the sun, it is said, nnd it is therefore perhaps no wonder, that in some respects, the practice should now and then deserve less praise than the theory. I h...
