HOBART TOWN:       FEBRUARY 15, 1831.

Comparing this return with the former (the second) quarter, we find an increase both in the income and in the expenditure ; indeed, so nicely are our affairs managed by our friends in England, that we verily believe, if double the income was forth-   coming, we should have equally double the ex- penditure, in the shape of salaries, &c., on the contra side of our balance sheet. The following is the proportion the two quarters bear to each other:- Income. / Expenditure 2d quarter £16,158 1 11½ / £12,877 12 2 3d quarter £17,125 18 0¾ / £14,544 0 11¾ ...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 February 1831

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Sir - In one of your late numbers, you took notice of an attempt at duelling between two of the honourable fraternity of the highly aristocratical and pure merino class of the meri- dian of Hobart Town. These silly upstarts of new commissions vain, Who sleep on thorns, until they kill their man - The honourable practice of which, this class say, keeps soci- ety in good manners. To say tbat duelling in any manner or way improves society, is contradicted by all experience ; good manners never cause personal fear or danger, but confidence and good will ; the hibit of duelling divides society into two classes - the bully and the coward. The Irish, fifty years ago, were the most habitual duellists in Europe - they were the most uncivilised gentry in the northern hemisphere - the Irish brigade were the greatest duellists in the French Army, they were brave, but proverbially rude and uncivilized, and most frequently kept in Coventry by the Native Office...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. TERMINATE Mr. Editor - I know of no character in society less en- durable than a punster ; and I have lately suffered so much by being obliged to hear some of the nonsense that is thus sometimes forced upon the frequenters of public rooms and tables, that I must vent my spleen by making a remark or two in   this manner, under the hope that it may meet the eye of those for whom it is intended. There is a gentleman whom I often meet, and whom I will designate as TOM SEDLEY ; whatever may be the society he is in, he allows no opportunity to es- cape of introducing a pun. The rank or quality of those whom he addresses has no consideration with him - he is a punster, alike whether among the highest or the lowest. Walking with him through Elisabeth-street a few days ago, we saw a man before us who was carrying a new lamp in his hand, which by some accident he dropped ; " Of what trade do you suppose that fellow is ?" said Sedley. I took hi...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Mr. Editor - Sir - On Saturday next, I understand several persons are going to be helmsmen of the boats, whose occupa- tion is entirely maritime, and who, because tbey don't work with their hands, conceive themselves entitled so to do. Now, Sir, a pilot and myself are very different kind of fish ; I   have never steered a boat above three times in my life, and therefore shall have but little chance with such a competitor as Mr. Kelly, whom I cannot conceive to be an amateur ; I dare say you will be able to recognise the writer of this letter, on Saturday next, by his clumsiness in nauticals ; but still I like fair play ; if I am to be beat, I shall not care about finding a better match in my friends and equals, but to be ob- liged to start with such regulars, it is quite disheartening, quite horrible - please make use of the hint, but don't insert the letter.

Crowther in a duel fought at Bou- logne. Mr. Justice Bailey charged the Jury, pointing out the law as applicable to the case in question, and the trial was fixed for ten o'clock on Friday morning. The Judges in attendance were Mr. Justice Bayley, Mr. Justice Bosanquet, the Recorder, the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs. The prisoner was dressed in a black frock-coat, and pos- sesses a warlike, weather-beaten countenance ; he appeared perfectly composed, and held his right hand in his coat. Mr. Gurney, Mr. Charles Phillips, and Mr. Clarkson ap- peared for the prosecution ; and Mr. Alley, Mr. Bodkin, and Mr. Adolphus, were the prisoner's counsel. The witnesses on both sides were ordered to leave tbe Court. After the Jury was swo...

Misce[?] (Letters on the Colony, No.11) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 February 1831

MISCELLANEA. (Letters on the Colony, No. 11.)   My Dear Donald,   There are many who come to this Colony under very erro- nious conceptions of what awaits them, in most particulars. Some, who have been accustomed to all the comforts and en- joyments of life, but who have found numerous privations unavoidable within these last few years, in consequence of the change of the times, embark hither under the foolish ex- pectation that, like the snail that travels with its house upon its back, they only have to pitch their tent upon some chosen   spot, and immediately to find every thing about them as heretofore. Others have been mislead by the rhapsodical high- flown accounts that have been promulgated, and have accord- ingly experienced a severe disappointment at the reality that has convicted their visionary notions upon many sub-   jects. The plain fact is, that this is a colony that presents numerous opportunities to the man of indus...
