THAMES YACHT CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 March 1831

THAMES YACHT CLUB. The members of this club have availed them- selves of the opportunity of His Majesty's acces- sion to commemorate that event, and evince their loyalty and attachment to their Royal patron, by   giving two silver cups to be sailed for by yachts     the property of individuals belonging to the club. The Royal Sovereign steamer, having been en-   gaged for the accommodation of members and their     friends desirous of witnessing the match, proceeded on the day appointed from the Tower to Greenwich,   and, notwithstanding the unfavorable state of the weather, with a full compliment of passengers. During the passage the cups, one weighing 91 ounces, and of the value of 50 guineas, the other   a 25-guinea cup of 38 ounces, were handed round for inspection, and excited the approbation of the company by their chasteness of design and neat workmanship. Tritons, tastefull...

Passages from the Diary of a late Physician. (From Blackwood's Magazine for August.) [CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 March 1831

PASSAGES FROM THE DIARY OF A LATE PHYSICIAN.   (From Blackwoods Magazine for August.) [CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.] As was generally the case, I found Emily busily engaged in painting little fire-screens and other ornamental toys, which, when completed, I was in the habit of carrying to a kind of private bazaar in Oxford-street, where I was not known, and where, where an aching heart, I disposed of tbe delicate and beautiful productions of my poor wife, for a trifle hardly worth taking home. Could any man, pretending to the slightest feeling, contemplate his young wife - far advanced in pregnancy, in a critical state of health, and requiring air, exercise, and cheerful company - toiling in the manner I have related, from morning tonight, and for a miserably inadequate remuneration ? She submitted, how-   ever, to our misfortunes with infinately more firmness and equanimity than I could pretend to ; and her uniform cheer- fulness of demeanour, together with the...

SUPREME COURT. - MARCH 15. WINTLE v. JOHNSTONE. Mr. Kinsman opened the case with - "This is an action by the Plaintiff against the Defen- dant, the drawer of a bill upon D. M'Kay, which was dishonored, and it is to recover the sum of £55 2 6." John Hiddlestone sworn - I know the de- fendant, J. Johnstone ; I should know his hand- writing ; I know M'Kay, and I know his hand- writing ; I presented this bill for payment ; I know Mr. J. Johnstone ; this looks like his hand-writing ; I have seen his writing in another style ; I have seen him write ; I believe this to be his hand-writing ; I do not know whether I gave the defendant written notice ; I told him M'Kay's acceptance was not paid ; it was either the day I presented the bill, or on Monday ; it was before Mr. Wintle paid the bill ; I presented the bill at Mr. M'Kay's own house ; I do not know where Mr. M'Kay was at that time.   Cross-examined by the Solicitor-General - I have no doubt that this is Johnstone's writing...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 25 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 comer, 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   tr...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 25 March 1831

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 tbe 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 residence. Upon returning home, I committed my thoughts   u...

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN [?] MARCH 25, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 25 March 1831

HOBART TOWN. MARCH 25, 1831. Let it be impressed upon yonr 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...

Their Majesties Visit to Covent Garden Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 March 1831

THEIR MAJESTIES VISIT TO COVENT GARDEN THEATRE. The above Theatre was the scene of great attraction last night, their Majesties, having been graciously pleased to honour it by their presence ; it was crowded in every part, from the ceiling to the pit, by a fashionable and brilliant audience. As early as two o'clock yesterday the doors of the Theatre were blocked up by persons anxious to obtain good situations, and long before the hour for opening the Theatre, namely, six o'clock, more than three times the number of persons over what the Theatre could by possibility hold, was congregated in its immediate neighbourhood. - The moment for entering the Theatre having at length ar- rived, a dreadful rush look place - to describe it would be impossible - suffice to say that upon no former occasion of this like kind were more desperate efforts made to obtain an entrance to the body of the House than upon this occasion.   There was much more than mere curiosity in this anxiety t...

On Wednesday last, the first Military Jury for the Quarter Sessions met in the Supreme Court, where the business is to be conducted     until the Court up stairs has undergone the     changes necessary for an administration of the   Law, under the new regulation. The Solicitor-   General attended to conduct the prosecutions on behalf of the Crown ; Mr. Gellibrand, Mr. Horne, and others, on the part of some of the   prisoners. We feel pleasure in recording the   actual progress of this very useful institution, for it is apparent to every one who takes the trouble to observe its proceedings, that there   will be no longer any complaints, as to the tardy administration of the Law, in Criminal   cases - the Supreme Court will be relieved of almost every thing short of capital offences ;   ...

CORONER'S INQUEST.   Melancholy death of the lady of JOHN BELL, Esq. J. P., and the two children of an overseer residing with the family supposed by eating of a fish of the species called Toad Fish. On Friday, one of the most respectable Juries that probably ever assembled upon any similar occasion met at the country residence of Captain Bell, Weston Lodge, New-town to investigate into the causes that had pro- duced most fatal consequences to no less than three individuals of this highly respectable family.
