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

To the Editor of the Colonial Time*. Sill.-Many on this side the Island are anxious to sign the Address to our Patriot Kim: ; and I beg to suggest that.the "Committee call upon the People" to depute them by /«fier to affix their signatures, as it must he very inconvenient, and to' many next to impossible, to get into Launceston, or even to other distant places, to sign such copies as may be sent there for that purpose. It was remarked upon a certain occasion, that signatures bad the good office of exhibiting useful lists of friends and foes I The application cannot be better used than in the preseut instance ; for it is high time that the props of the present svslem were called from the flocks of the desired I belter one, and the list published ! -I am, Sir, with sincere thanks for your inestimable support of a good cause, your obliged servant, ONE WHO WILL SION THE ADDRESS. - County of Cornwall, June 11, 1831.

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 June 1831

Te the Editar of iii» Colonial Tim*. SIR, tVilb reference to the annnal tax which Lord Goderich hat I .omtnanded to be levied on the Colonists for each crown ser- vant assigned, it would not be improper to inquire whether an English S«retary of State really possesses by law the power lo la« the Colonies. The United States of America flatly re- fused to pay an odious tax voted by the Bfitisli Parliament ; bow much more might I not question so exorbitant a power assumed by a Minister, who may be in place to-day and re- moved to-morrow. Be this as it may ; this arbitrary act ' completely annuls the powers which, by Act of Parliament, «re conferred on the Legislative Council of tilia Colony. The Tasmanian inforira us that a Committee lias been appointed, at the instance oi His Excellenoy the Lieutenant-Governor, composed of Government Officers (and most justly admits that His Excellency lia» so done, being the friend of the Co- lony,) to inquire into the propriety and expediency of impl...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. I SIR.-From the various statements in your Paper the pnblio in this neighbourhood are led to anticipate a very great advantage to result in tbe new arrangements in the Post Oflice department, instead of which I 'am sorry to say thal here it prows vice versa.

Ah ! shew me the treasure thal man can possess, That equals the friend of the heart ; Who smiled on b> fortune, or dumped by distress, Loves on, without guile,-without art ; But purer and dearer seem amity's sweets, Wl en far from such friendship I »tray ; And the liveliest pulse in my bosom that beats.
