COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: APRIL 26, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 April 1831

BO BART TOWNl APRIL 26, 1831. Siel 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 Religions Rights. Juirius. The Henry has arrived at Launceston, bring- ing Sydney Papers of a late date, as also English Journals up to the 29th November, inclusive ;-reports are flying about the town, ? so various and so magnified, that we can hardly venture to publish them, lest in recording them, we might hereafter be accused of credulity. That disturbances of a very serious nature had taken place in London, we readily believe; and that the unpopular Ministers had been burnt in effigy in several provincial towns-and that Captain USHER is on his way out;-we can believe all this :- but when we are told Mr. ATTWOOD is marching at tiue head of 100,000 armed men from Birmingham to London, in order to present an Address to His Majesty, complaining of the'r grievances, it is too much ; we must, th...

He was gentle ano' affable to all his noble and suriound» i rig friends, Which 1 hcpu the Lord will have mercy on bim, till the woild ends; He was humane and chai ¡table lo the needy and poor in - ! distress, -Which made his fii-mds shew love, una respect-bim that he did not oppress; ' His company was courted by the-Iii st people in the na- tion, When they will miss him in the cathedrals they will la« ment with oiatioti; The gentlemen of Trinity College Ciiapel will miss him for ever, A» his vocul tal...

Notice to Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 April 1831

notice to Correspondents! Liltrrs of " J. T." and, " H. M.," are not fit for publication. Tint paragraph about the "Ancient Horse," would tint be understood but by a few ; the verses " X. Y. Z.," and " Ta-tlf.h," are of a- quality hardly good enough for a Journal, and those of " M. N." ara too personal, and if published, ko doubt would be applied to a very amiable ijoung lady, who does not deserve such publicity to be given to her personal description.

(From the Medical Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 April 1831

{From the Medical Gazette.) Quackery is of very ancient origin. Tho gentlemen of that profession can boast a long life, if not of ancestors, at least of predecessor«. Tbey may go back as far at history reaches, end find (heir 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 were often made places of resort for those afflicted with disease ; but 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 the satirists have left us for their impostures. From one of these we learn that those who carne to^onsnlt .rEscnlapius were directed (after having purified themselves in the lustra! water) to lay their offering), on the altar, and then recline on couches pre- pared for them ; and as the god was supposed not to declare hi...

(Original ï>oct.i>. Translated from the French. S^io conlea by night, a dream of light, With all her glories round her, She seems to rest, upon the breast, To which so oft, I've bound her. And many a word, willi rapture beard, And whispered vow scarce broken, Upon a bliss, as deep as this, - Like stimmet light hath broken. She seems to smile, as once ere-while She used to smile upon me ; The voice, the tone, nil, all her-ovrn, As wtfen their-sweetncss won me. I hear them float, each simple note. Her own accnstom'd numbers ; It does not seem, a fleeting di earn, To vanish with my »lnmheis. Away, away, thou joyless day. My heart has no such pleasure, As that it feels, when back it stead, , By night, to my heart's treasure !
