To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sin, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 April 1831

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. Sir,       It will afford a considerable degree of satisfaction to     numbers of your readers, if through the medium of the Press, any information can be obtained relative to one or two subjects upon which various opinions are daily promulgated, a natural consequence of the mystery and concealment that is but too common, although the public interests are sufficiently concerned, to require the most satisfactory explanation in either case. First, - I would enquire what becomes of the money collected from the Estates of persons who die intestate ? Is it invested in     Securities upon the best and safest terms that the Colony will afford ? Is the amount large ? Does any part of it remain in the possession of the Registrar of the Supreme Court ? And is there the slightest truth in a report pretty widely circulated, that a sum amounting to some Thou- sands of P...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 April 1831

To the Editor oj the Colonial Times.   Sir, Hacknied and threadbare as a 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 conviced, that never at any one moment since the existence of the Colony have their atrocities assumed a more fearless aspect, never have they as plainly shewn that they are actuated by the principle of revenge. Their attacks on the lives and properties of the inhabitants on the North-side of the island during the last month, reaching to within a very short distance of our Northern Capital, fully confirms the opinion     long entertained by many, that to them, as to all savages, revenge is one of the           overpowering passions. In spite of the manner you have hand- led the 'subject, you will allow his Excellency has incessenant...

In the first place, the little semi-official notice that has since been taken of it in the Courier, at once speaks volumes, being an .admission that the doctrine advanced by tho defendant's Counsel, J monstrous as it seemed to some at the time, is I literally founded iir fact, and that " the whole soil of this Island continues vested ia the King at the present moment, not one particle of it having yet been legally parted with."
