THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

THE REGATTA. On Thursday next, (the day after tomorrow,) the long-expected and often-delayed Sailing Match will take place on our splendid River. It will no doubt be a capital match, as many of the boats are equal, in point of sailing qualities. In order that no misunderstanding may arise we have taken the precaution to collect the following particulars, which are from the most authentic quarters : - All boats intended for this Match must be entered before 12 o'clock to-morrow ; other- wise, they will not be permitted to start. At 3 o'clock to-morrow, (Wednesday,) a meeting of the owners ot the boats will be held at the Macquarie Hotel, when the lots will be drawn by which the stations will be fixed to the different competitor. On Thursday, at half past 12, the boats will   be ready at their respective moorings ; and as the clock strikes 1, the signal gun for starting will be fired. The fleet will then proceed round a flag-boat moored off Sandy Bay Point ; and having ro...

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

TO CORRESPONDENTS. Some of our Sydney friends are grievously complaining of the non-arrival of their papers. Wt recommend them to seek redress from their own Postmaster, as we are confident the manner in which the papers are forwarded from Hobart   Town precludes the possibility of miscarriage. The Poeticals of Van Diemens Land have suddenly become silent ; we cannot imagine the reason, but as we wish to encourage literature " in all its branches," we shall soon advertise for a prize poem for our next year's Almanack, for which a suitable reward will be given.

Quarter Sessions, Hobart Town. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

QUARTER SESSIONS, HOBART TOWN. This day week the Court met for the trial of prisoners. Joseph Hone Esq., the Chairman, and P. A. Mul- grave, Esq., our Police Magistrate, took their seats on the bench about 11 o'clock, and several prisoners were placed at the bar, preparatory to taking their trials.   After the Gentlemen we have named had sat for nearly After the Gentlemen we have named had sat for nearly 2 hours, the attendance of a third Magistrate - necessary to form a competent Court - was accomplished by Mr. Beamont taking his seat, just as the clock struck one, to the great inconvenience of the Solicitors and Coun- sel, whose professional engagements had kept them in Court during the whole mommg, whilst the Constables   were dispatched with lists of no inconsiderable length their hands, comprising the names of the Magistrates, in the hope of inducing some one to attend in his judicial capacity.We have before adverted to the difficulty   th...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Mr. Editor - I read your comments upon a letter, signed ANTI-WITTY-PATE, in your last, with some satisfaction, and fully agree with you that there are three distinct tribes of what may be said to belong to the wit family, the witling, the humourist, and the punster ; some deny that a punster is a wit at all, but that depends upon circumstances, for I daresay that there are few of us who have not, at one time or other, met with instances of repartees, in which a pun was included, and which covered a considerable degree of sterling wit - I think I might enumerate an instance or two, that will fully hear out the truth of this position, but at present will merely observe, that a humourist, as he is called, is the most harmless of the set - as, although he may sometimes amuse, he never stings ; he is a sort of retailer of others' stores, and only once let his reputation be raised by the good-natured praise of some silly friend, he is sure to be invite...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. (HOUSE OF COMMONS, 30th JUNE.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. (HOUSE OF COMMONS, 30TH JUNE.)               Mr. Brougham said, that it appeared His Majesty's Go- vernment had resolved to proceed, not only without the sup- port, of that house, but against its opinion, and in despite and contempt of its sentiments, - when the whole weight of Go- vernment had been put forth, and had only secured the sup- port of 185 against 130 ; to collect which 130 he would take upon himself to say no expedient had been used, (Loud cheers on both sides of the house amidst which was a very pe- culiar cry.) An Hon. Member, whose name we could not learn, rose to   ask, if such an exclamation as the house had just heard, was in order? (Loud laughing ) The Speaker (as we, understood) expressed a doubtful   opinion. Tbe Hon. Member still pressed for an answer. He con- sidered the noise to be an indecent one. The Speaker said, he co...

[?] (Letters on the Colony, No. 12.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

MISCELLANEA.       (LETTERS ON THE COLONY, NO 12.)       MY DEAR DONALD,         A few days ago I returned from paying a week's visit to a friend in the country, where I was entertained with a hunting expedition ; and I will endeavour to ex- plain to you its nature, differing as it does in many respects from what I had been accustomed to in our own country. You doubtless know enough of the na- tural history of the kangaroo, not to require to be told mach with respect to its habits or peculiar formation, but I must premise my description of a morning's ram- ble in quest of them, over mountain and rock - and through dale and rivulet, by saying that there are three separate or distinct species, the chief difference however being in size, and that the largest stand nearly six feet high ; these latter are known by the Colonial term boomers, the next are called...

THE ROMANCE OF JESSIE THE FLOWER OF DUMBLANE. (From the Waterford Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

THE ROMANCE OF JESSIE THE FLOWER OF DUMBLANE.         (From the Waterford Chronicle.) The fair subject of this song was a bonnie lassie in Dumblane. Her family were of poor extraction, and Jessie herself was contented with a peasant's lot. When Tannahill became acquainted with her, she was in her "teens," a slight,dimple-cheeked happy, lassie; her hair yellow co- loured and luxuriant ; her eyes large and full, overflowing with the voluptuous langour which is so becoming in young blue eyes with golden lashes. Tannahill was struck with her beauty, and as in all things he was enthusiastical, became forth- with her ardent worshipper. But her heart was not to be won. Young, thoughtless, and panting to know and see the world, she left her poor amourante "to xxx songs to his mis- tress's eye-brows," while she recklessly rambled among the flowery roads of Dunblane, or of an evening sang his in- spired verses to him with the most mortifying...

Sydney News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 February 1831

SYDNEY NEWS. The late arrivals brought us Hobart Town   papers to the 11th ult. The " Grand EXPEDITION,"- that is, the whole force of the white population of the Island, military, civil, and uncivil - which was drawn out in array against a handful of poor cowardly miserable naked blacks, who seem to have created an alarm as idle as it was general, by their occasional incursions and attacks, first upon the whites who injured them, and next upon friends and foes indiscriminately - this "Grand Expedition" has met the fate which any per- son of ordinary understanding and experience might long since have predicted it would meet. It has caused a precious waste of misemployed time and treasure, but it has proved abortive. The first cost, not reckoning "after claps," is estimated round- ly at £27,000. This and more the Van Diemeners have had or will have to disburse (for we do not expect the Lieut. Governor will venture to charge a tithe of it upon the Home Treasury) in order t...
