COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: APRIL. 8, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 April 1831

HOBART TOWN:     APRIL. 8, 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  ...

RIOTS IN LONDON. (FROM THE WEEKLY DISPATCH.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 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 &...

Passages from the Diary of a late Physician. (From Blackwood's Magazine for August.) [CONTINUED FROM OUR lAST.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 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 bell with what I fancied was a sudden and imperati...

***-->**.>* To the Editor of the Colonial Times, Sir,       Hacknied and threadbare as the subject of the Aborigines may appear to some, every reflecting man -- every one who has the least consideration for the lives of his family and the   safety of his property must be convinced, that never at any one moment since the existence of the Colony have tbeir atrocities assumed a more fearless aspect, never have they been plainly shewn that they are actuated by the principle of re- venge. Their attacks on the lives and propeities of the in- habitants on the North-side of the Island during the last month, reaching to within a very short distance of our Nor- thern Capital, fully confirms the opinion long entertained by     many, that to them, as to all savages, revenge is one of tbe overpowering passions, in spite of the manner you have hand-   led the subject, you will allow His Excellency has...

HOBART TOWN. APRIL 12, 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. Some weeks back, a correspondent of the Tasmanian alledged that the press of this Co- lony was in a " poor, prostrate, and servile con- dition," meaning, that is we presume, that it does not speak the disaffected sentiments enter- tained by a few individuals, and which have found vent on the part of the writer. For our- selves, we treat such expressions of opinion as they deserve, not doubting that our fellow la- bourers, as public Journalists, will do the same ; but nevertheless, we are unwilling to suffer them to get abroad without correcting the erroneous conceptions they are calculated to produce by placing the state of the press in this Colony at the present moment before our readers in its true light. Independence either of writing or speaking is a ve...
