(From the South African Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 March 1831

(FROM THE SOUTH AFRICAN ADVERTISER.) We leam with regret, that the writer of the vile paper in the Quarterly Review, quoted in our last, is no other than Captain Basil Hall, whose books of travels have for many years been a source of sinless amusement to the lovers of light reading. He rambled among the new Republics in South America ; he wander- ed among the United States, and saw many wonders, but nothing great. He deplored the excesses, as they are quaintly called, of the people who we're risking life and property, and reputation (for an unsuccessful patriot is a rebel) for Liberty and the Rights of their Country ; and he pretended to look with some disdain on the simplicity of established Freedom at Wash- ington,- predicting at the same time the disso- lution of the Union, to be followed by anarchy and despotism. All this was merely laughable ; and coming from a talkative, precise, dapper- little-understanding, passed as a sort of joke - a wilful way of taking a wrong view of th...

Memoir of the Duke of Orleans: the present King of France. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 March 1831

MEMOIR OF THE DUKE OF ORLEANS : THE PRESENT KING OF FRANCE.     The Prince, whose history is one of the most curious " romances of real life," is the son of the most famous Duke of Orleans, who was the guest of the Prince of Wales, and took so hot and suspicious a part in the Revolution. His friends say that the father was much belied, and it is pro-   bable that he was so ; his character for improvidence and debauchery tended to injure his reputation in every thing ; but the man who was thus notorious, and who voted for the   death of an amiable though unwise King, his near relation, is not likely to have had any noble object in view.   Louis Philip of Orleans, called in his father's life-time the Duke de Chartres, was born at Paris the 6th of October, 1773, and at 9 years of age put under the care of the celebrated Madame de Geulis, who became, singularly enough, his chief tutor, presiding over the whole of his educa...

HOBART TOWN: MARCH 15, 1831.

Wheat may now be considered to have reached as low a price as will do during the year, and it seems to be fixed at about five shillings. We have heard that one of the great Cornwall grow- ers has offered to sell large quantities at four shillings a bushel, and even lower. Now, as the ships which from time to time will ar- rive here will be scarce of freight, we dare say that it will be lower this year than usual - say six-pence a bushel ; thus then, if at any irate a prospect of ...

Coroner's Inquest. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 March 1831

CORONER'S INQUEST.       On Friday last an Inquest was held at O'Brian's Bridge, by Joseph Hone, Esq. Co- roner for the District of Hobart Town, on the body of George Porter, a native of the Colony, aged 22 years, residing at the Black Snake,   and formerly a constable attached to the Ho- bart Town Police. The Jury was composed chiefly of the settlers in the neighbourhood of Glenarchy.   It appeared upon the enquiry, that on the morning of Saturday, the 5th instant, this un- fortunate young man left his home on horse- back, and after transacting business in Hobart Towu, was on his return (about three or four o'clock in the afternoon) in a state of intoxica- tion, when he stopped (as was his custom to do) at O'Brian's house, on the rivulet, on leaving there he asked a relative how long she thought it would require him to overtake two persons who had about that time rode forward   - Mr. Johnson, the dairyman...

I had known the youth In a society of far renown, But liked him not, be held his head so high ; And ever and anon would sneer, and poogh ! And cast his head all to one side, as if In perfect agony of low contempt At every thing he heard, however just.       Men like not this, and poets least of all.     Besides, there are some outward marks of men One scarcely can approve. His hair was red, Almost as red as German sealing wax ;       And then so curled - What illustrious curls ! 'Twas like a towe...
