The Civic, festival postponed.--More Ministerial Manœuvring,-precedented Conduct of the Lord ayor. (From the Weekly Dispatch.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 March 1831

THE CIVIC FESTIVAL POSTPONED. --- MORE MINISTERIAL MANŒUVERING. --- UNPRECEDENTED CONDUCT OF THE LORD   MAYOR.   (From the Weekly Dispatch.) It is impossible to. describe the excitement that prevailed among all ranks and classes on Monday last, when it was announced that their Majesties, acting on the advice of Ministers, had postponed their promised visit to the City, which was to have taken place on the following day. The Lord Mayor postponed his own procession, and the usual civic entertain- ment. This considerably increased the prevail-       ing excitement. The whole of the Metiopolis was in a state of agitation, and reports of the most alarming nature were in circulation. The following official documents were issued at an early hour on Monday : - The Committee appointed to conduct the entertainment   proposed to be given on Lord Mayor's-day next, on the oc-     casion of the...

Their Majesties Visit to Covent Garden Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 April 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 wns 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 took place - to describe it would he impossible - suffice it to say that upon no former occasion of the like kind were more desperate efforts made to obtain an entrance to the body of the House than upon this occasion. There was muc...

Court of Quarter Sessions, FOR THE TRIAL OF FREE PERSONS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 April 1831

DOURT OF QUARTER SESSIONS. FOR THE TRIAL OF FREE PERSONS.   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 ; and the perpetrators of larceny and theft, in their numerous ramifications, deterred from such vicious courses, by the best of all pos- sible remedies ...

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.

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: APRIL, 5, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 April 1831

HOBART TOWN: APRIL, 5, 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 are so many reports of changes in the Administration, that we hardly know how to believe any of them. The Tasmanian states, that Sir Sydney Smith was to embark in Janu- ary last, to supersede General Darling, as Go- vernor of New South Wales, and mentions in   a sort of half-and-half way, that Sir Robert Wilson had accepted the Government of this Island. The former appointment may be correct, but the latter, we believe to be out of the ques- tion. One would hardly think that Sir Robert Wilson would accept of any Lieutenant Gover- norship, when it is publicly stated in all the London Newspapers that he has been offered the third or fourth best Government in the gift of the Prime Minister, that of the Cape of Good   Hope. A muc...

RIOTS IN LONDON. [FROM THE WEEKLY DISPATCH.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 April 1831

RIOTS IN LONDON. [FROM THE WEEKLY DISPATCH.] Radical Reform Association. - A Meeting of this society was held on Monday night at the Rotunda, in Black- friars-road, but before the discussion commenced the place was crowded in every part. While the business was proceeding inside - the principal feature of which was a discussion on the King's Speech - the crowd out- side, which amounted to about one thousand persons, were amused by hearing the King's Speech read. About eleven o'clock the doors of the Rotunda were thrown open, and those who were inside sallied out to hear Mr. Hunt harangue the multitude. Having mounted the bal-   cony, Mr. Hunt said, they must all have read or heard of the King's Speech : taking into consideration the state of the country, a more improper Speech or one less agreeable to the feelings of the people had never been sanctioned by Ministers. (Cries of disapprobation.)   The King was so ashamed of it, and his Ministers were so afraid...

Passages from the Diary of a late Physician. (From Blackwood's Magazine for August.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 April 1831

PASSAGES FROM THE DIARY OF A LATE PHYSICIAN.         (From Blackwood's Magazine for August.) (CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.)     " How could I ever muster resolution enough - I thought - to ascend the steps, and knock and ring in a sufficient au- thorative manner to be attended to ? It is laughable to relate - but I could not refrain from stepping back into a by-street and getting a small glass of some cordial spirit to give me a little firmness. Although I ventured again into --------- place, and found Sir -------'s house, on the opposite side, there was no one to be seen but some men-servants in undress, lolling indolently at the dining-room window, and making their re- marks on passers by. I dreaded these fellows as much as their master ! It was no use, however, indulging in thoughts of that kind ; so I crossed over, and, lifting the huge knocker made a tolerably decided application of it, and pulled the bel...
