TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 10 August 1832

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,?-Universal are the complaints relative to the conduct of the female Crown prisoners in the service of private families iii the town? I apprehend the following expos6 will afford some explanation of the real cause thereof. Admitting fully that many of these unhappy women are habitually addicted to evil courses, from which it is extremely difficult to turn them, it becomes a greater duty on the part of those in whose service they are to pay every possible attention to their morals, and to pre- vent, as far as such is possible their getting into evil association. But, I am sorry to Bay, there are several persons in this town, who give their female'servants, neither clothes nor wages, but allow them to go out ouc day in thc week, generally on the Sunday, "to see a shipmate" as is the common phrase, and' return as may be expected, drunk, xvith fine clothes, fine bonnets, money, &c? evidently to the destruction of any little good disposition whic...

Cfje Courier. I FRIDAY. AUGUST 10,1832. J Weare torry to learn that the success of the whale fishery in the river, has not as yet equalled that of last year. The numerous ob- stacles that stand in the way oF its advance- ment demand indeed the serious notice both of the government and the mercantile body, the full consideration of which our present limits forbid us to enter upon. Mr, Young, who is perhaps thc most expert and enterprising' o1* all our whalers, has however succeeded in al- ready capturing athis establishments in Trum- peter and Adventure bays no less than 10^ fine fish. Mr. Hewitt's bunts in Research and j Spring bays have caught 12, Messrs. Bctt's and Co.'b 5, Mr. Pratt's, of the Eagle I, pro- ducing 8 tuns, Mr. Kelly's 1, and Mr. Lung's 1. Seeing the great capabilities which this river affords for the indertnking, it were much to be wished that a fishing village could have been formed in one of the most convenient recesses of the river, and that it had proved worth ...

Dr. Burns, of Paisley, has had a very interesting audience of the King, on the occasion   of presenting His Majesty with a copy of his new edition of that valuable historical work, Wodrow's Church History. His Majesty conversed at some length with the Dr. on   various subjects of literature and especially on the distress of the labouring and manufacturing poor of Paisley and other parts of the   country. His Majesty shewed that he understood the subject well, and entered fully into   the objections against the system of paying the price of labour out of the rates, and thus degrading the labouring population of England into paupers, and representing that money   as given to the support of the poor, which   is in fact appropriated to far different objects. This is what Mr. Galt has well shewn in his late amusing work 'The Member,' and which   we have occasionally taken some pains to point out in...

Macquarie point, Ausr. 15, 1832. 1 Sm,?Observing that my name has been brought forward in the * Colonist' newspaper; in a manner which I conceive to be calculated to do me considerable injury, I take this opportunity of expressing the painful nature of my situation, under such circumstances; having carefully avoided, all interference with thc newspaper press since my arrival in thc colony, so I hoped to continue in the quiet exercise of my official duties, without moles- tation, or public, comment of any kind, par- ticularly while I continued to perform those duties to thc best of my poor anil ties, and to tile satisfaction of thc Government. I called this day on thc Editor of " The Colonist" to request lie would not continue to mention me, or my department in his paper; - mid I hare also sent him a copy of this letter, for his more complete information as respects my wisliCB on the stthtect.

Clje Courier. FRIDAY. AUGUST 17,1832. 1 -»»»«*¦ It is certainly true that the balance of trade was'never more against us than it is at this moment?that our imports far exceed our ex- ports?and that no country situated as this is- land is, can permanently prosper or arrive to tiny eminence without a flourishing' commerce, which it is the'bounden duty of the Govern- ment to foster and promote. At the same time the propriety of the present outcry about the ruin, insolvency, downfall and grievances of thc colony which wc heard so mud) reiterated on Munday last is very questionable. Till lately the clamour was quite in an opposite di- rection and thc colony wuk said to be thriving beyond all iden. Both extremes are probably wrong*, for the colony apparently unaffected hy either of them contiuues togo forward in its own steady course. At the same time we think it advisable to inquire if there be any just cause of alarm, aud in this light wo must confess that while the colony places the mo...

The number of proxies'that voted for the bill were 54 and 48 against it. The debate was tery protracted being adjourned for 3 or4 ?days ai a time, to afford opportunity, as it was «aid, to examine the details of the bill before going into committee, on-account of the inter- vening of tbe Quarter Sessions and of a graud installation of the Knights of tbe Bath on the 12th of April.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Srit,-About IO years ago I arrived in this colony, and like other emigrants I had occa- sion to- visit the Survey Office. In these visits I generally found the head of that de- partment leaning upon the paling in front of the door, and having myself but little employ- ment at that time I frequently had long con- versations with that officer. I was surprised to find how little was effected in the Sur- vey branch. Having determined upon taking a town allotment I discovered there WHS not even a plan of the town. -The same officer also informed me that very little had been done in the country, That in placing settlers on their grants much has been left to the imagi- nation-and that a few hundred acres moro * A or less was not a matter of much consequence. Nsm Subsequently I became acquainted with ^ other circumstances which enlightened me very much upon the general system of affairs then in practice.
