COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: MARCH 4, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 March 1831

HOBART TOWN: MARCH 4, 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 wondered that the proper season for...

LAWS OF RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 March 1831

LAWS OF RACING.   As racing now seems the order of the day in   Van Diemen's Land, we do not know that we   can do better than publish the laws that are in   existence for the regulation of that fashionable   amusement. It may perhaps be the means of saving broken heads and legs, as well as of pre- serving good order and fellowship, on the ap- proaching St. Patrick's day. Horses take their ages in England from May-day ; i.e. a horse foaled any time in 1830 would be one year old on the 1st May, 1831. Four inches are a hand - 14lbs. a stone - 240 yards a dis- tance. Catch weights are, when each appoints a party to ride without weighing - "Feather weights" signify the same. " Give and take plates" are weights for inches ; i.e. fourteen hands to carry a stated weight, all above to carry extra, or be allowed the proportion of 7lbs. to an inch. A whim plate, is a weight for age and a weight for inches. Handicap weights are w...

Quarter Sessions. HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 March 1831

QUARTER SESSIONS,   HOBART TOWN. On Tuesday last, this Court met by adjournment, and pro- ceeded with, the trials of prisoners, viz :- Benjamin Marsh was charged with stealing a glass decanter, the property of William Stallard, of the Golden Fleece Inn, Kangaroo Point. Plea, not guilty. From the evidence of Mrs. Stallard, it appeared that the prisoner, who is a nailer, was observed to thrust his hand through a broken pane of glass, in the bar window, and take out the article in question, which was found in his possession ; when accosted, he drew it from under his waistcoat, and he was given in charge to a constable. The prisoner made no defence. Verdict, guilty. Sen- tenced to be imprisoned in His Majesty's gaol, and kept to   hard labour for three years. The Police character of the prisoner, exhibited a catalogue of offences, during a ten years residence in the Colony, amounting in number to thirty-five. John Barker was charged with feloniously receiving a...

Mutiny on board the Lowther Castle and Inglis, East Indiamen. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 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 consequence of its having bee...

Miserable Death of a lady. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 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 the 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 beds to poor weary travellers at three-pence and four-pence per night.

Extraordinary Trotting. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 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 the 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 perform- ance, which ...

An Historical Lesson to Ministers of the Crown. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 March 1831

AN HISTORICAL LESSON TO MINISTERS OF THE CROWN. The Duke 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 Castilian 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 pensioned sup- porters to make t...

Velocity of Light. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 March 1831

VELOCITY OF LIGHT. TERMINATE 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 formerly     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 the 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- pearances took place sixt...

Effects of Expansion. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 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 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...
