Miscellanea. Demonology and Witchcraft. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 19 April 1831

Miscellanea.   Demonology and Witchcraft.   The following, strange story by Sir Walter   Scott, illustrates one of the many cases often met with favourable to superstition. "Of the ????Ä*md" says Sir Walter, " by" whom the facts were attested, I can only say that if I found myself at liberty to name him, urn'raak which bp holds in, his profession, as weft'aV his'attainments-in science and philosophy, form an undisputed claim to the limul imp'ieit credit.

The several letters of L. L. D. are not of sußcient import for publication. Leonidas, about the Doctors, should have appeared in « contemporary some time since-the sub- ject has become stale. Verses on Maria are not worth the ». printing ; those on the lofly Parnassus of Hobart Town {Mount Wellington) are too sublime for our columns. What have become of all our poetical contributors-have they forgotten the Muses?

The Bachelor's Soliloquy. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 April 1831

The Bachelor's Soliloquy. / Marry or not to marry ? That s the question, Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer, " The sullen silence of these cob-webb'd rooms. Or seek in festive hall1«, some cheorful dame. And by uniting, end it?-To live alone No more ; and the thousand makeshifts Bachelors are heir lo. 'Tis a consummation, Devoutly to be wished. To marry, to live v In peace ; perchance in war, aye "there's the rub, For in the marriage stale, what ills may come, When we have shufllcd offour liberty Must make us pause. There's the respect That makes us dread the bonds of wedlock. For who could bear the noise of scolding wives, The fits of spleen, the extiavagauce of dress, The insolence of servants, and the spurns, That patient husband's from their consorts take, When they themselves might their quietus gain, By living single ? Who would wish h> bear, The jeering name of bachelor ; " " But that the dread of something after man ¡age, J Perhaps a vasi expenditure of income, J&a...

Permit me, therefore, to make it the channel of usheiiug into existence one or two icflcctionsln which I have t.ccasionally indulgí d.

BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. I ? The following,severe and bitter letter to his, Grace the Duke of Wellington is taken from the Weekly Dispatch, the writer may thank the 'popular feeling of the times, or' else such lan- guage would not remain unnoticed by so pow- erful an individual as the Premier of England 'cannot complain of the want of the Liberty for ¡the Press : MY LORD DUKE.-To approach those who are peculiarly objects of compassion, is the highest privilege of the kind and the benevolent. In that class, I am well persuaded that your Grace, if you have done me the favor to entertain the most faint reminiscence of the circumstances under which I once before had the honor to ad- dress you, will, in common justice, not fail to enrol me. Were you now in the meridian of your glory, as at the period when your adven- titious success, as a warrior, had concealed from the nation that imbecility which you had no opportunity fully to devclopctill, in an evil moment, you were enabled to lender y...

Miscellanea. j Demonology and Witchcraft.   The following strange story by Sir Walter Scott, illustrates one of the many cases often met with favourable to superstition. "Of the friend," says Sir Walter, " by whom the fasts were attested, I can only sat, that if I found myself at liberty to name him, the rank which ho holds in his profession, as well Bs his attainments in science and philosophy, form an undisputed claim to the most implicit credit. It was the for- tune of this Gentleman io be called in to attend the illness of person now long deceased, who, in his life time, stood, as I   Understand, high in a particular department of the law, which often placed the property of others at his discretion and con troul, and whose conduct, therefore, being opeo to public observation, he bad for, many years the character of a man of unusual steadines, good sense, and integrity.

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: APRIL 22, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 April 1831

HOBART TOWN! APRIL 22, 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. Juntas. um-uunw.xmmmm There .are many points of view in which the result of the late trial, Bastian v. Bridger, may justly be considered one of vital importance to the community at large, and we have received several communications upon the subject. In the first place, the little semi-oflicial notice that has since been taken of it in the Courier, at once speaks volumes, being ¡in admission that the doctrine advanced by the defendant's Counsel, monstrous as it seemed to some at the time, is literally founded in fact, and that " the whole soil of this Island continues vested in the King at the present moment, not one particle of it having yet been legally parted with." We own that we ourselvps were struck with so extra ordinary a position when it was first advanced, and casting ou...

Quarter Sessions. NEW NORFOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 April 1831

Quarter Session*» NEW NORFOLK. From an omission in our last week's publication, the proceedings of tue Quarter Sessions, held at New Norfolk, on Monday, the 11th inst.jhñve not, till the present moment} met the public eye ; anrl we the more regret the occurrence, as an important decision was come to in the case of a publican, whose license was cancelled with very serious con- sequences in a pecuniary way-through the Impro- per mode by which his house had been conducted. Mr. James Blay, jut)., at the last annual licensing day, received a 1 cense for a house in the new township of Hamilton, and at these Sessions, Mr. Gellibrand appeared to conduct about eight or ten cases against Mr. Blay, under the Licensing and Haibouring Acts; it was proved thai this house, instead of being an accommodation to the public, us intended by the .Magistrates who granted' the license, had actually been a pest to the whole of a very respectable neighbourhood.

Notice to Correspondents. 'Letters of " J. T." and " H. M.," are nat fit for publication. The paragraph about thti "ANCIENT HORSE," would not le understood but by a few ; the verses " X. Y. Z.," and " TATLER," are of a quality hardly good enough for a ' Journal, and those of " M. ti." are too personal, and if published, no doubt would be applied to a very amiable young lady, who does not deserve such publicity to be given to her '. personal description.

(From the Medical Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 April 1831

, {From the Medical Gazette.) Quackery is of very ancient origin. The gentlemen of that profession can boast a long life, if not of ancestors, at least of predecessors. They may go back as far as history reaches, and lind their prototypes among the heathen priests, who practised medicine as a means of extending their influence over the people, as well as of obtaining emolument. Their temples weru often made places of resort for those afflicted willi disease ; lint the priests, like their modern copyists, veiled their practices with so much mysticism and secrecy, that we should now have no information concerning them were it not for the ludicrous pictures which some of tlio satirists have left us for their imposture«. From one of these we leam that those who carne to consult jEsculnpius were directed (after having purified themselves in the lustral water) to lay their offerings- on the altar, and then recline on couches pre- pared for them ; and as the god was suppose.1 not lo declar...

Exactly at IO o'clock on Monday morning, the Chairman took his'seat in the Court House, and was presently attended by the following highly re- spectable body of gentlemen in the Commission of the Peace, viz., James Gordon, Esq , G. W. Gun- ning, Esq., J. H. Batelier, Esq., T. A. Lascelles, Esq., S It. Dawson, Esq., J. S.eel, Esq., and Henry Nicholls, Esq. An appeal by Mr. Brown, of the Crown Inn. Bagdad, was conductei by Mr. Gellibrand, and without going into the mer.ts of the case, ¡he con i iction of Messrs Roper and Gage, was ordered to be quashed-sufficient appearing on the faco oí the proceedings, to shew that it was not a legal con- viction under the Act.

RTigcellanea. INTERESTING NARRATIVE. Theex'racts we made from Blackwoods Mag. , of the Diary of a Physician were " received loith so much satisfaction" (as the (íovernment semi-official says) by our readers, that we are induced to continue our reference to that well conducted Periodical.
