COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: MARCH 1, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

HOBART TOWN: MARCH 1, 1831. Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palla- dium of all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius.   There is not a week that does not bring with it some representation or other from our Cor- respondents in the Interior, with respect to the roads and Bridges in their immediate neigh- bourhood ; and it pains us beyond measure to witness the expenditure that is constantly being lavished upon useless undertakings, at a time   when both money and labour could be so much better employed. What is the use of a person's embarking his fortune in agricultural pursuits - of striving to bring land into cultivation - of rising early and working late - the hand ever on the plough, and the footsteps on the furrow - if, after he has gathered together the fruit of his labour, he is unable to bring it to market, by reason of impassable roads ? We have often wond...

THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

THE REGATTA.   The long expected and often postponed Sailing Match took place on Thursday last, and afforded a most gratifying sight to most of the inhabitants of the town. At an early hour the boats entered for the match were seen preparing, and the vessels in the harbour were crowded with flags in honor of the occasion. Soon after twelve, the band of the 63d Regiment em- barked, and contiuued playing the most popular airs during a great part of the afternoon. About one, the time appointed for starting, the Bat- tery Point and New Jetty were crowded with spectators. His Excellency, accompanied by Mrs. Arthur and family, witnessed the whole of the race, from the terrace walk in Lieut. Hill's garden. We also were highly gratified in ob- serving His Honor the Chief Justice had suffi-   ciently recovered from his late severe indispo- sition to enable him to be present on the occa- sion. The whole of the grounds of our Port- master were crowded with Civil and M...

Mutiny oil board the, Lowther Castle,and Inglis, East Indiamen. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

MUTINY ON BOARD THE LOWTHER CASTLE AND INGLIS, EAST INDIAMEN.       A very serious mutiny broke out on board the Inglis East Indiaman, during her homeward-bound voyage. The ship arrived yesterday in the River from Canton, and ten of the ringleaders are in custody. Four of them were brought last night to the Thames Police-office. They were placed in irons at St. Helena, and have ever since been confined on board the Kellie Castle, which was towed up the River on Tuesday. They were taken out of that vessel yesterday afternoon by Mr. Evans, the     chief officer of the Thames Police, in pursuance of orders to that effect from the Secretary of State's office. Four others are in the Grant, and three in the Vansittart, Hon. Company's ships, the arrival of which vessels are hourly expected. On the arrival of the other prisoners, the charges against them will be entered into. After doubling the Cape, the crew of the Inglis, in...

Miserable. Death of a Lady. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

MISERABLE DEATH OF A LADY.         A coroner's inquest was held on Tuesday evening, by Joseph Carttur, Esq., Coroner for Kent, and a jury com- posed of the most respectable inhabitants of the neighbour- hood, at the Fountain Tavern, Broadway, Deptford, to in- quire into the circumstances attending the death of a lady named Elizabeth Guillott, daughter of a well-known wealthy East India merchant, and who would, at tbe demise of a re- lative, have come into possession of property amounting to nearly half a million.       The inquiry excited an extraordinary degree of interest, and many of the gentry of Blackheath and neighbourhood were present, the unfortunate lady being known to them in her lifetime.     The jury having been sworn, proceeded to a miserable house in Mill-lane, occupied by a man and his wife, named Hetherington, who obtain their livelihood by letting out...

Extraordinary Trotting. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

EXTRAORDINARY TROTTING. The celebrated American horse Tom Thumb, whose feat of   trotting one hundred miles in harness in little more than ten hours, over Sunbury Common, excited so much astonishment some time back, again made his appearance in the sporting world on Monday, and performed a task scarcely less sur- prising, and certainly unprecedented in the annals of trotting in this country. It appears that, shortly before Mr. Jackson, the late proprietor of this nonpareil in horseflesh, quitted this country, he sold him to Mr. Osbaldestone for a very high figure, and Mr. O. has ever since used him as a common hack in his buggy. Some time since, the subject of trotting being on tue tapis in a sporting circle, Mr. O. proposed back- ing a horse, bona fide his own property, to trot sixteen miles, in harness within the hour, and to be himself the driver. This challenge was immediately accepted by a gentleman high on the turf, who betted six hundred to four against the perfo...

An Historical Lesson to Ministers of the Crown. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

  AN HISTORICAL LESSON TO MINISTERS OF THE CROWN. The Duke of D'Olivarez, a prime Minister of Spain (in the 16th century), and the favourite of the King his master, was endued with all the qualities requisite to form the statesman ; but his superabundant zeal to advance, apparently the King's prerogative, betrayed him into the adoption of such a system of oppression and tyranny, as brought down upon himself and his colleagues in power irremediable disgrace. The first exercise of his power was to bereave the Spaniards of their native customs and liberties, as regarded certain franchises and immunities granted them by the Castillan Crown, in exchange for their voluntary homage. An open rebellion was the consequence, and thence sprung the revolts of Catalonia and Rousillon, with the total defection of Portugal. By the rigorous measures of the Government, the people were driven into treasonable practices, and every   advantage was then taken by Olivarez and his...

Velocity of Light. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

VELOCITY OF LIGHT.       The extraordinary precision with which the astronomical skill of modern times enables men to fore-   tell the times of remarkable appearances or changes among the heavenly bodies, has served for the detection   of the fact, that light is not an instantaneous communica- tion between distant objects and the eye, as was foremerly       believed, but a messenger which requires time to travel ;     and the rate of travelling has been ascertained in the     same way. The eclipses of the satellites or moons of the planet Jupiter had been carefully observed for some time, and a rule was obtained which foretold the instants in all future time when tbe satellites were to glide into   the shadow of the planet, and disappear, or again to   immerge into view. Now it was found that these ap- &...

Rules and Regulations for Young Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR YOUNG LADIES.     At fifteen. - Affect vivacity, and line your bonnets with pink. If in company with an agreeable gentleman, hold your breath long enough to blush when he speaks to you, and in- cline your eyes downwards when giving an answer.

At seventeen. - Read tbe news of literature and fashion, and form your opinion of the follies of the day, upon their model.

Effects of Expansion. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

EFFECTS OF EXPANSION.     A cannon-ball when heated, cannot be made to enter an opening through which, when cold, it passes readily. A glass stopper sticking fast in the neck of a bottle, may be released by surrounding the neck with a cloth taken out of warm water, or by immersing the bot-   tle in the water up to the neck ; the binding ring is thus heated and expanded sooner than the stopper, and so becomes slack or loose upon it. Pipes for conveying hot water, steam, hot air, &c., if of considerable length, must have joinings that allow a degree of shortening and lengthening, otherwise a change of temperature may de- stroy them. An incompetent person undertook to warm a large manufactory by steam from one boiler. He laid a rigid main-pipe along a passage, and opened lateral   branches through holes into the several apartments, but, on his first admitting the steam, the expansion of the main pipe tore away all its branches...

ANECDOTE OF THE PAINTER AND THE [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 March 1831

ANECDOTE OF THE PAINTER AND THE PORTRAIT. - An artist recently visited Hampton-Court, intent upon obtaining a portrait of his supposed future King. Communicating his wishes to the domestics, he was informed that it was impossible to obtain an interview with the Royal Duke for such a purpose, at that afflicting season. The painter suggested that if he might be allowed to catch a glimpse as their Royal master passed through tbe hall, he could gain an exact likeness. The servants of the Establish- ment were, however, not to be moved by either entreaty, and the painter, thus foiled, bid defiance to the vigilance of the Royal guards by seeking an opportunity "where all men   are equal and equally privileged." One thought alone saved him from despair, and he told the domestics he knew how he   could get it, and he would not be foiled in his resolution. Accordingly, he repaired to the church which His Royal Highness generally attended, on the following Sunday, now...
