The Courier. FRIDAY, JULY 27,1832. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 27 July 1832

CJje Courter. FRIDAY, JULY 27,18S2. .We arc anxious not to allow the IPave to depart without renewing our appeal on the subject of thc quit-rents, Since tho late ar- rivals from'England, aw idea has gone abroad (though we cannot conceive on what grounds) that it is the intention of the Home Go vernment to extract from the colony sooner or later, a full equivalent for every six-pence that has been expended on it from its first commencement?that a regular debtor and creditor account is kept in the colonial office, Downing-street, where every item is charged against us, down to the last penny, drawn by the Commissary or through any other medium, and that it is intended to square the account as speedily as possible, by means of quit-rents* sales of crown lands, and other exacting mea- sures. If this be the fact (which we cannot believe) our case is indeed a hard one, But true or not, it is our duty as well to ourselves as to the local and the imperial government to let the real circumst...

TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 27 July 1832

TO THE PUBLIC. My last letter having in a great measure, by anticipation, refuted the observations made by .Mr. Gellibrand in his letter published in the Courier of the 20th, little is left to be observed upon it, and I therefore will be as brief as the nature of the case will admit. Mr. Gellibrand, says, that A True Friend insinuates that those who advocate the princi- ples of the Van Diemen's. land Association, haye not the, most f worthy' objects in view to- wards the widow, and", orphan. The. "questio* being thus raised I am bound to answer it. I think roy last letter proved their intentions so far from being 'worthy,* fthat is according to Johnson,.«valuable or noble,') towards the widow or orphan, that those shareholders, un- der the sounding terms of'vested interest,' sought to prove their conduct any thing but ' valuable' towards the simple policy holder, because even upon Mr. Giilebrand's limited scale of profits those 60 shareholders would claim at the termination of the f...

Sir,?I rcgret^to see that you have intima ted a wish to'close your columns against a continuance of thc very interesting discussion, relative to Life Insurance, the publication of which iias, I am convinced, done already much public good; inasmuch as independent of the advantages to the Colony afforded, per se, by thc establishment of a Colonial Life Insurance 1 Society, avoiding thereby the difficulties, delays and dangers attendant upon the people here being compelled to have recourse to r Britain to'effect Insurances, the gieat and im b poitant advantage follows, bf producing a stimulus to habits of industry, and temperance, which will be generally felt by the middle classes, to whom it will soon become appar- ent, how much comfort will result from the f contemplation, that by the putting by some ten pounds per annum, (much less than the ordinary expence of rum alone, in any one middle class family) a comfortable corhpeterirc can be secured to the " ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. - The public must feel indebted to the libera- lity shewn by you in offering your columns for disseminating the discussions oh the import- ant question of Life Assurance, and the result is one of the many evidences of the power and value of thc press on any subject wherein the interest of thc public is concerned. In your paper of the 20th, Mr. Gellibrand proposes to shew two things-^first, ' that the V.D'L. association is founded upon fixed and Certain principles, and that it will produce greater benefits than the proposed equitable society?-but Mr. Gellibrand omitted to state oit whom those greater benefits would fall?I shall supply the omission, by saying, the shard holders only to be sure, because he is to get 991. 13s. 4d. whilst'the policy holder gets Ol. only.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. oee> Sta,?The whole colony is united in the opinion of the absolute necessity, I will not say td its prosperity, but to its salvation from ruin, of a Representative Assembly. The measures of the British Administration, which aud tlie misrepresentation of our actual state whereupon they aro founded, you have so well commented upon, require a stronger band of resistance, than any Governor, without the support of the people expressed by represen- tatives, fully, fairly and ' freely chosen, can venture upon. The very nature of the object for which the public meeting is convened by the Sheriff for next Monday week, throws open tlie door as widely as possible for discus sion, for it is obvious that every man will be at liberty to express bis opinion* as to tbe state of thc Colony, upon which be grounds bis vote for the proposed addresses dr petiti- ons..

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER.       As the people of all Europe appear to be under some " excitement" as to the probable effect of the comet, which Astronomers cal- culate will appear in 1835, perhaps a few observations thereupon may not be unworthy your notice. The expected comet is under- stood to be that which has already four times been known to come within the sphere of our vision. Altho' comets are bodies, the excen- tricities of the orbits of which would seem to place them beyond the reach of accurate calculation, yet when any one has re-appear- ed repeatedly at certain fixed intervals, such evidently gives ground for expecting its ap- proach accordingly, and then its effect upon our solar system will obviously depend upon the relative position of the bodies, of which that system is composed. The expected comet is that which is first recorded by As- tronomers as having filled the world with dismay in the year 1456, when the fearful pro- ...

Ctje Courier. FRIDAY. AUGUST 3,1832. We once more venture to entreat the atten- tion of the authorities, both here and at homet to the point which we last week took regard- ing these Auttral-asian colonies, as being the prison general of England. When the great share which the settler* have had net only in rendering it a secure but a moral and an eco- nomical prison is taken into account, aud can didly considered we are sensible that no fur. ther intention will be persisted in nf exacting exorbitant quit rents. If as is too generally supposed in.
