Passages from the Diary of a late Physician. (From Blackwood's Magazine, for August.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 March 1831

PASSAGES FROM THE DIARY OF A LATE PHYSICIAN. (From Blackwood's Magazine, for August.) CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.             About £300 was now the miserable remnant' of the money borrowed from the Jew ; and half a year's interest, (£225) together with my rent, was due in about a fortnight's time. I was, besides, indebted to many tradesmen - who were be- coming every day more querulous - for articles of food, cloth- ing, and furniture. My poor Emily was in daily expectation of her accouchement ; and my own health was sensibly sinking under the combined pressure of anxiety and excessive parsi- mony. What was to be done ? Despair was clinging to me, and shedding blight and mildew over all my faculties. Every avenue was closed against me. I never knew what it was to have more than one or two hours sleep at night, and that so heavy, so troubled, and interrupted, that I woke each morn- ing more dead than alive. I...

COLONAL TIMES HOBBART TOWN: MARCH 18, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 March 1831

HOBART TOWN. MARCH 10, 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. The news brought from Sydney by the Bur- rell, which has arrived at Launceston with a cargo of horses, should not influence our agri- culturists to omit any thing that may tend to provide a great opening for their produce.- 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 rate a prospect of sale even at Sydney, at a profit of six-pence...

Coroner's Inquest. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 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 Town, 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 dairyma...

The First Sermon. (By THE ETTRICK SHEPHERD,) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 March 1831

THE FIRST SERMON.   (BY THE ETTRICK SHEPHERD.)             Once, on a lovely day - it was in spring- I went to hear a splendid young divine   Preach his first sermon. I had known the youth In a society of far renown,   But liked him not, he 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 tower of strength ! O, what a head   For Combe or Dr. Spurzbeim to dissect, After 'twas polled. His shoulders rather narrow, And pointed like two pins. And then there was A primming round the mouth, of odious cast, I...

HOBART TOWN. MARCH 22, 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. The great articles for which our Colony now   looks to keep up against the effects of the drain of taxation and the balance of our trade are our wool and our oil, and notwithstanding the great success which those engaged in the latter   occupation have had last year, we are still of opinion that to our wool we must look as the constant and never failing resource. We have been continually urging our wool growing friends   to pay the utmost possible attention to the im- provement of their flocks, and from all which we find by the recent accounts from England, our advice has been well founded. We saw a letter this last week from an eminent clothier in the West of England, where it is well known all the finest cloths are manufactured, in...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. MR. EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 March 1831

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Mr. EDITOR,   In one of your recent papers, you inserted some strictures   on puns, and added a few very pertinent remarks of your own upon this species of wit, and with which I entirely agree. Perhaps you may consider the following, which I can assure you is a genuine original, sufficiently piquant to have place in a vacant corner, as a further commentary upon what was ad- vanced by your Correspondent Anti Witty Pale. - Your hum- ble servant, JOHN LOVEWIT. There was once a party at dinner with an old Nabob, who gave them some very prime Madeira, London, East India, picked particular. Afterwards he opened his heart, and in- troduced a flask of rich, racy Constantia. It proved just a single glass to each, and it was so much relished that the company became clamorous for another; but old Qui-hi could not be prevailed upon. "Well, well," said one of the   party, " since we cannot double the Cape, we must e'en t...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Mr. EDITOR, - Ever since Mr. Deane's late ex- cellent concert, nothing but music seems the fashion. No matter whether or not dame Nature has bestow- ed the requisites of ear or voice, every Miss who is out of her leading strings must needs learn to play, and do ri mi almost takes the place of ABC.   I happened the other morning to make a call, where a very ingenious and highly accomplished professor was working at the stated hour in teach- ing the rudiments of the gamut, to a great over- grown child of twelve or thirteen, whose parents have all at once discovered that a polite education is nothing without music. From my heart, I pitied the individual whose ears were so tantalized, as was the case, for I am sure that there was no more soul for music in the pupil, than in one of the packs of wool I saw piled up in the warehouse through which I passed to the family residency. Upon returning home, I committed my thoughts   u...
