To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 June 1831

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-Give me leave to tell yon, that-1 must cease to be your correspondent, unless we liave .ti better understanding whh each otber. The two letters I have sent you have appeared before #the '"Public in so mangled and tear bled a state from the original text, that in some respects I scarcely rc 'coRnize them ;-they are little better than the {ghosts «f their former selves-nor is this all, but 'dipt and mutilated as they are by your own hands, your compositor has further contrived so io chance their reading, by substituting words of his,own for «line, that it require-almost as much acuteness of intellect to trace one's own production, when in vînt, as it docs for a father to know-bis own . ehild. But,1 however, let us'try once more. * ' _ I« has rcnlly seemed to me that, for want of dis- tinctly drawing the plain and evident line between tuen and measures, which 1 have insisted upon as existing.

[?]oman. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 June 1831

Woman. It was one of those beautiful days which occasionally shed a lustrous glory over an English May—the morning had been close and sultry, but a delightful seabreeze tempered the afternoon—I felt languid and melancholy.— Accompanied by a dear friend, I sallied forth to dissipate my cares, in a stroll around the deeply indented bays which mark the neigh- bourhood of the Port of Poole.—As we were passing through the outskirts of the town, I perceived the Church yard door open — the dark mood was upon me, and I could not for- bear entering.—Scarce had we thrown our eyes   upon the sad memento's around us, ere our ears were assailed by a loud and disgusting shout- ing—presently a post-chaise entered the cemetry followed by all the idle ruffians of the place, who vented their coarse ribaldry on the chaise and its contents. At the feet of the driver, there was a plain deal coffin, and in the carriage were two unfortunate girls, who were attempting   to perform...

Observations on the Funded System. (CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 June 1831

Observations on the Funded System. (CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.) Gold, »liver, and copper were then made the substitute» or representatives of all property, it was foreseen that any thing which could easily be procured, without much labour, something that was very plenty, oould not answer the end. Shells from the sea-shore can be picked up by every one; The precious metals were therefore introduced, and were stud to be of intrinsic value, partially from lim reasons above as- signed, and because the universal concurrence of all mankind gave them universal currency. But man, as before observed, ever inconsistent .ever prone to error, has now raised up for his own destruction a fabric built on a sandy foundation, and lins suffered the introduction of .that which is of no intrinsic value, which is delusive and imaginary, and which can be multiplied ad infiiiilitm, and Ibis is become a substitute for properly, in- volving a direct'contradiction. Gold and silver are the bona fide representat...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-The Ed.tor of the Tasmanian having in bis last ps« per, not only indulged himself in a repetition of his egotistical assumptions, mid manifestation of individual exoitement, with which the public have so little concern ; but using til» Press as be does, (without reference to the interests of th» Proprietor,) us the vehicle for expressing bis own private feelings, rather than legitimate Editorial comments-and what is worse, making iho*e feelings subservient to unfounded insinuations against Gentlemen « bimi he could not othcrwisa assail, and the motives to which oro so obvious. I must beg to bespeak sufficient space in your second Journal from this date, for explanations on behalf of one of the Gen- tlemen ia question ; by which time I trust to be furnished with the needful materials ; and when the public will be able lo judge, bow far ibis same Editor is warranted in these unseem- ly Newspaper attacks, and whether he has not...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 29 June 1831

I To the Editor of the Colonial Timen. I ?«. . There may be some points of view, Mr. Editor, in which the late regulation wilb regard to land may be considered, that may strike us all, as highly detrimental to the prosperity of the Colony ; and that they are so too, I think no reasona- ble man can entertain a doubt ; but, on the other hand, there is one consideration connected with them, which I haie been surprised to see has escaped the acuteness of yonr remarks, wheo commenting upon ti e sores with which our body politic is troubled. Sir, perhaps, in one respect, a more fortunate thing for us could not have happened than the removing from the hands of the Chief Authority hera, the exolusive power it lins hitherto held, with regard to the disposal of land by grant. Few oan conceive, unless like myself, they have had reason to understand the workings of that powerful engine of patronage, what an instrument it lias proved for blinding peo- ple's mental organs of vision, and giving th...

j Original Poetry. j TUE DEATH OF THE PATRIOT. " My country shall triumph ! tho' tjrants assail" The chieftain of liberty cries ; " The drift of oppression shall never prevail . Go on'."--Here the pow'rs'df his eloquence fail : In the splendour of duty he dies. - - * He dies I and that eye, which keen energy darted, Shall glisten with ardour no more; ' ' And wan is the visage which kindness imparted, And silent the tongue, whose stern magic oft thwarted, Th' inventions of rivalrio loie. Too gen'roua to flatter-, too true to deceive, , He lov'd for the nation alone ; Th' allurements of greatness,'he scorn'd to reoai've, For hirelings of office, be learnt to believe, i' W(re worthless-and slaves io a throne. His King he rever'd-bat the People ho lov'd Expiring-he gasp'd for their cause ; m As nature's last dews o'er his pnllid cheek mov'd, ' " ' The comfort of hope all his labonrs approv'd, ' '* ** ' \ And conscience denied not applause. - .

HOBART TOWN JUNE 29, 1831.

The Emigration Committee is still sitting and much good may they do. For ourselves we see little probability that their labours will come to any thing- that will in the slightest de- gree benefit the Colony, or aid the exportationn of   British paupers. We do not know what par- ticular grounds or principles will be embodied in their report, but this we do know, thal the sub- ject is a difficult one, and capable of perplexing even wiser men than those who have beeu named as the Committee.
