HONDURAS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 December 1825

HONDURAS. Our Readers may probably recollect, that in our Journal of the 2d of September, we inserted Extracts from Colonel ARTHUR'S dispatches to Lord BATHURST, while having commandât Honduras. We considered an still do consider the sentiments they contain- ed, most honourable to his feelings in every way. We have, however, received a long Communication from a Correspondent, who encloses (from The Time» Newspaper of Ja- nuary 1,1824) an extract of another dispatch from Colonel Arthur to Lord Bathurst, which , certainly we do not quite compiehend ; nor can we reconcile with the statements which we before inserted. We aie unable to place them in Chronological order, inasmuch as the following is without a date, but it is contain- ed in the pages 115 and 116, of the Parlia- mentary West India Report, which, if it is in this Colony, can be therefore referred to. Colonel Arthur must have changed his opin- ions Very decidedly, either when he wrote the dispatch which we before inserted, or...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 December 1825

<E)ri0tnal cîormponîrentf. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,-Having been in some measure in- strumental in obtaining the Independence of this Island, and signing a Petition in common with others, fora wise Council to be estab- lished to assist the Lieutenant Governor, it is not without infinite concern that I see ap- pointed the Members of this Council, persons recently arrived amongst us, holding appoint- ments of high consideration, and in no way connected either with mercantile or agricul- tural pursuits in this once flourishing Colon v. It is hardly fair when a Revenue of nearly fifty thousand pounds js collected from the mercantile interest of this Island, that not a Merchant of this respectable community should be allowed a single voice to forward the industry and labours of this class of so- ciety. But, on the contrary, that all Govern- ment Officers, no way connected with the zealand enterprise of commerce, should be appointed, both to the Bench and the Co...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN; FRIDAY, DECEMBERS 9, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 December 1825

Colonial Times.     HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1825. The Official Gazette of last week, with ma- terials before it, which, as the Government organ, would we had imagined, in common decency, not have been allowed to have passed by hi contemptuous and insulting si- lence? has produced an article so flimsy, shallow, and contemptible, that a fifty-times w hipped school-boy would haveiieen ashamed of it Norsho'tld we notice it, but for its malig- nity as to ourselves, for the palpable false- hoods in wlticb (as usual with the Govern- ment Gazette Winters) it is replete, and for the infamous slanders in which (as usual with the Government Gazette writers) it abounds. It commences with an allusion to the influ- ence which this Journal is supposed to have on +he public mind ; and charges us with hostility to private character and public re- putation ! To make assertions without proofs, is the continual system »of these hired writers. But the Public requires s...

(From the AUSTRALIAN.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 December 1825

(From the>Australian.) We cannot easily comprehend on what principle people can refuse to attend a public dinner, because there isa probabilityotthe'r meeting those with whom they would not wish to be on terms of intimacy. Except in this Colony, we never heard it supposed to be a necessary preliminary to our sitting down to a public table, that we should as- certain whether all the quests were fit to be- come our bosom companions. It is said that candidates for seats in Parliament will sub- mit to a great many indignities to carry their election ; but, we hardly Chink they would Íield to the necessity of vowing eternal riendship for all their constituents who chanced to grace the Members' festive board in commemoration of,victory. Ifj indeed, those niceties of discrimination, which are so religiously upheld here by the few Aristo- crats, were enforced on pabliu occasions,in England, it is quite clear'thdt the House,of Commons would present a View of empty benches after a general ...

The [?]ush=rangzrs. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 December 1825

The banditti of bush-rangers having made two sea excursions, have again landed, and have regained their lawless course in the in- terior. Mr. Hobbs, it appears, fell in with them near Oyster Bay, but in consequence of, their occupying a most formidable position, from whence his boats' crew was exposed to their fire, if he proceeded to attack them, they were enabled again to escape; and Mr. Hobbs succeeded in getting possession of their boat. We have since heard that they have sunk a small sloop, the property of Mr. Campbell, which they found getting seal- skins somewhere near Swan Port. They were on board her vtwo or three days, an'cl were all so sea-sick, that had there been another man on board, besides the person who had charge of the vessel, they might have been easily captuied. ,On Friday last Murphy and Cody (who had by accident separated'from the rest, but have since joined) robbed the Government-hut, within four miles of Ross Bridge. They took a man from that place to carry ...

St. Andrew's Public Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 December 1825

St Andrew's Public Dinner We have been favoured (we perceive in common with the Government Gazette) with an account, signed "Observer," of a Dinner,   called a Public one, which was had at Mr. Ogilvie's, the British Hotel, on St. Andrew's Day. We rather think that instead of a Pub- lic Dinner, it was in fact nothing more than that 50 Gentlemen, certainly of the first respectability, met together by common con sent, to celebrate the Tutelar Saint of Scot- land, by partaking of an excellent dinner and the best of wines, which the long expe- rience, and great capabilities of Mr. Ogilvie's most respectable establishment enabled him to furnish, in a most superior style. Dr. Scott was in the Chair, and Mr. Young, Vice, or according to the Scots phrase, "Croupier." rhe dinner was Scots, the toasts were hcots, and there was some little Scots caution evinced in the getting up of this affair ; for all the names of the persons who were to be present at this " public dinner," had p...

Sydney Entelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 December 1825

g&gSttit? ïnuUiticncc, A strong contest, for the office of Bank Director, has taken place in the Sister Co- lony. There were two vacancies, for which there were five Candidates, viz:-Messrs. De Mestre, Pritchett, Spark, Brown, and Dr. Douglass. This latter Gentleman entered, as is the turf expression, at the post, and yet came in winner, having a majority of 48. Mr. Pritchett was the other successful Candi- date, with a majority of 31. It appears, that Mr. Brown had rendered himself exceedingly unpopular, by certain recent conduct on the occasion of the late Public Dinner ; the con- sequence of which he has been made to feel. as above. Dr. Douglass succeeded, ii) con- sequence of having united himself with the Colonists. Whether he will redeem the pledge he has given, remains to be seen. It will be well for those of the Proprietors who have thus carried him into the Direction, if they have not reason to lament their folly. All our Letters from Sydney concur iii px í)r. Dougl...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 December 1825

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1825. The Government Gazette has at length assumed an appearance somewhat more con- sistent with the ordinary rules of decency and decorum. Its' whole mass of venom, its whole supply of slander, its whole powers of inventive vituperation being exhausted, the whole vocabulary of St."Giles's having been gone through, in all the changes of ha- tred and malevolence, it has ended, where it ought to have commenced. But even this is not from principle - it is from necessity. The merit of decency is not to be apportion- ed to the Conductors of this most miserable production. Hitherto it has been one con- tinued mass of filth and falsehood. Now it has become insignificant. It has not even the base interest which slander gives to excite no- tice. It is on the point of death. But its vindictive spirit still rages in unabated viru-   lence. It stalks abroad like a midnight spectre, threatening all whom it may encoun- t...

Latest English News By the Lang, we have received Letters and the London Journals to the end of August, from which we make the most interesting extracts; and in our next we shall give more   particular details. It appears that the busi-   ness at the Colonial Office has of late years in- creased so much that it has become necessary to have an additional Undersecretary of State,   and we some time ago announced the appoint- ment of R.

The business of the department has been divided between Mr. Wilmot Horton and Mr. Hay, and it will be seen by the list of Colonies as- signed to them respectively, that there is am- ple employment for both.
