THE CONSTRUCTION PUT UPON WORDSBY A MILITARY JURY. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

THE CONSTRUCTION PUT UPON   WORDS BY A MILITARY JURY. Our Readers have seen that the words " non-descript job," as applied to an office, now suppressed, and therefore declared to be useless, have been found by Major Kirkwood,   and the officers of the 40th Regiment, to be a Libel upon the Lieutenant Governor. We beg the favour of their perusal of the arti- cles which we this day extract from the Go- vernment Newspaper, the Dublin Evening Mail, of the 3d July last, and from Black wood's Magazine for December-a work known to be established by the Government, and Edited by a Government Lawyer of emi- nence. If it is a constructive Libel upon the Lieutenant Governor, to call a declared use- less office a non-descript job, what is it to tell the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, the Mar- quis of Wellesley, to his head, that "he out rages the feelings of the people placed by his Sovereign under his vice-regal Government; that his conduct is " monstrous, and not to be t...

The Marquess of Dastings and The Sundan Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

The Marquess of Hastings and The Sunday Times The following report of the Judicial pro- ceedings in this case, is not wholly inappli- cable to certain circumstances at present before the Public. We recommend the pe- rusal of it to all concerned, and particularly the affidavit of the Marquis of Hastings, which was considered by the Court as abso- lutely necessary, in limine. A similar one made by those to whom we allude, might be attended with curious consequences; and without it we refer to the report thereon: COURT OF KING'S BENCH. Westminster Nov. 22. THE KING, ON THE PROSECUTION OF THE MARQUESS OF HASTINGS, v.THE   SUNDAY TIMES. Mr. Scarlett moved for a rule, calling on the Proprietor and Printer of The Sunday limes, to show cause why a criminal infor- mation should not be exhibited against them, for a libel on the Marquess of Hastings. Be- fore he stated the paragraph itself, or the denial given to its insinuations, he thought it right to detail the circumstances wh...

Bible Controbersn. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

We noticed lately the violence with which     religious controversy is carried on in Ireland,   particularly as regards the question between the Bible Societies, and the Roman Catholics as to the indiscriminate reading of the Sacred Volume, lt is quite impossible to furnish our Readers with the smallest idea of the extent to which this subject has agitated the public mind. The largest sized Newspapers are filled with little else. Foreign Intelligence of every description is passed by ; the consi- deration of all other political subjects is sus- pended. The sole question is, may we or may we not read the Bible. The Roman Ca-   tholic and the Established Church Dignita- ries have both entered into the most violent Newspaper controversies, -letters of four or five columns each appearing in all the Irish Newspapers from each party. Of the former, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, Dr. Doyle, appears to haye ex- cited th...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE   to the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. "Tears vainly flow for errors learnt too late, " When timely caution should prevent fate" Sir, As you have been directed to mount your steed, and view the various improve- ments made and going on, for the benefit of the Colony, I make no doubt, that when you come to one of those, so exultingly held up; namely, the operations at Ross Bridge, (which, if I am rightly informed, is for the cultivation of grain for Government con- sumption), you will view it in common, with everyone, who has an interest in the Co- lony, with heartfelt anguish; and, in con-- nexion with such speculations, your reflect- ing mind must perceive the axe laid to the root of agricultural prosperity. The Settlers, as the Gazette justly observes, come in general with a capital at command, find a supply of servants and labourers in readiness before them ; and they have within themselves civilized and gentlemanly habits, which quickly must c...

Erecution. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

Execution Broadhead, Buckley, and Everett for the robbery at Mr. Haywood's, (a full report of whose trial is given in our Supplement), and John Reed Riddle, and John Peacock, for mur- der, underwent the awful sentence of the Law, at the usual place of execution within the Gaol. An immense concourse of people attended to witness the dreadful spectacle. The Rev. Messrs. Knopwood and Bedford had been unremitting in their attention to these unhappy men. At 6 o'clock in the morning, they received the Sacrament; and through the consolations of religion, afforded them by the Reverend Gentlemen, had ob- tained a due sense, and apparently a sincere contrition for their past offences. At a quar- ter past 8 o'clock, the devotional duties, having been concluded, Dudley Fereday, Esq. the Sheriff, communicated to the un- happy men, that their last moments were nearly arrived. The melancholy procession then proceeded from the Lodge of the Prison to the scaffold. As soon as they began to &n...

Surmese War in India. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

Burmese War in India The following concise statement of the origin, of this war, may not be wholly unac- ceptable to our Readers. We subjoin a sketch of the official details of its progress, which seems at present to be as sangui- nary as is usual, where European discipline is opposed to the immense hordes, of which oriental armies are composed. It appears that a tribe or clan of people, of the very un classical-name of Mugs, were subjects of (or rather subjected to the power of) theBir-   mans, by whom they were much oppressed; and finding themselves on the whole very uncomfortably situated in the Birman terri- tory they transplanted themselves into some wild country within the limits of the British possessions, and established their character as subjects of the Company. The Mugs, however, have, been perhaps not well sup- plied certainly not quiet in their new ha- bitations; and some of them, riot unmindful of their old oppressors, have made repeated inroads on the Bir...

Supreme Court. THURSDAY, AUGUST 18. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

JSttprum^ Court* Thursday, August 18. This day J.T.Gelliukand, Esq. the Attor jjey-Gener^l,. presented informations against Joseph Broadhead, William Buckley, John Everet, and Charles Bradbury, for burglary and robbery; and against John Ray, Charles 'jackson, and John Taylor, as receivers of the ¦ stolen property. On the following day these prisoners were put# to the Bar, when the Attorney-General withdrew the above iii for- mations, arid presented others in which the four first were indicted as before, aud the three latter as principals in the second de- gree, for maintaining, receiving, harbouring, and comforting them. The Attorney-Gene- ral stated, that on mature consideration,'he liadbeen induced to adopt this measure, in consequence of the increasing extent and dangerous tendency of the latter crime, threatening as it does almost the safety of the Colony, aiid the security of property, and of the great public importance which he consi- dered it, thatir. should be publicly known...

LEFT HANDED MARRIAGE OF THE KING OF PRUSSIA. (From the Courier, Dec. 1.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

LEFT HANDED MARRIAGE OF THE KING OF PRUSSIA. (From the Courier, Dec. 1.)                   Matrimony with a subject or with an inferior, on the avowed principle that thc fruits of that union should not inherit the throne, and that the female should not be. the acknowledged equal of her husband in rank, while the mar- riage itself is valid as to every other legal, re- ligious, and moral obligation, is allowed on the continent, and prevails both in Catholic and Protestant, countries. The marriage of the present King of Naples is an example of the former, and the King of Prussia's of the latter. The Countess of Harrach, now Princess of Leignitz, to whom his Majesty of Prussia has chosen to give his hand, is of a Bohemian fa- mily, and consequently was not previously one of his subjects. The King became acquainted with her about two years ago at thc waters of Toplitz, and...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 September 1825

HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1825.   There is nothing which can more impede the advancement of a New Country, than the throwing dificulties in the way of egress and regress. At the time when the only Inhabi- tants of these Colonies were the prisoners of the Crown, and those by whom they were   guarded, it was of course necessary that Port Regulations should be established, the opera- tion of which produced no inconvenience either publicly or privately. These countries being then merely Penal Settlements, the legality of such could not be called in question; and indeed when they were first put forth, there was little in the shape of a Court of Civil Justice here; a Court of Law was not inbeing. The march of events has produced a total change in the circumstances both, of New South Wales and of this Island. They are now large, and   important Colonies, declared by the Legisla- tion (if such declaration was requisite, which it ...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 September 1825

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1825. The Police of this Town is a subject of the most serious importance, not only as it relates to the absolute protection of the per- sons and property of the Inhabitants, but as it regards the moral influence which its vi- gorous exertion must have upon the prison- ers from time to time arriving here, who, if from their first coming are subjected to the active operations of a well-regulated and jealous Police, are impressed with a strong apprehension of the dangerous consequences ofr violating the Laws, and which produces the best consequences. The state of the Police of this Town has called for the most serious animadversions from many persons, who, looking only at things as they are, seek not to investigate farther as to causes. Thus it is that Mr. HUMPHREY has been subjected to censure, which not only he does not merit, but which he could at once have avoided by exposing the total neglect which his depart- ment has experienced....

INDEPENDENCE OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 September 1825

INDEPENDENCE OF Van DIEMENS LAND. . .   Many rumours on this subject have been circulated during the last Week. We believe that the following is the exact state in which this important measure stood at the sailing of the Andromeda. The whole arrangements for declaring this Colony independent had passed His Majesty in Council, and had been sent to the Law Officers of the Crown for their revision. Our late Judge Advocate ABBOTT has received the appointment of Commissioner of the Court of Requests, with a salary of £600 per annum, and a pension for life of 400 per annum. The Members of the Colonial Council were nominated, and it is under- stood that EDWARD ADBOTT, Esq. Jun. was appointed Secretary, with a salary of .£500 -per annum. A Colonial Secretary was also appointed, at a salary of £800 ; and a Co- lonial Treasurer, at 600 per annum. This Office, and that of Naval Officer were also to be filled by Gentlemen from England. By the arrival ot the Prince Regent we learn t...

FROM THE AUSTRALIAN.   When the Printer of the Hobart Town Ga- zette was dismissed by the Government- his Salary withdrawn-the Public Orders with held-and the Title of the Paper seized, we imagine it was altogether unknown to the Advisers of these imprudencies, that a stub- born piece of evidence was in being, which would exhibit this concatenation of error)s in a true light, and conclusively prove the ¡Ile- \ ga li ty of at least that part or it most t«, be complained of. It may be useful for those who have acted so inconsiderately, to refresh their memories by a reference to a certain Item in the Statement of the Colonial Bund. in the words and figures following, contained in the Supplemental Sheet of the Hobart Town Gazette of May the 20th, 1825 ;j that is to say," CashreceitSedfrom Mr. BentJbeing for the lila sum advanced to him ox LdiN by Government, for tjie purchase of a Prest, type, fife. £Z71 12s. 6d."

BRITISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 September 1825

BRITISH NEWS By the ship Security we have received English and Irish Newspapers to the 10th of April ; from which we have made as copious Extracts as our limits will admit. We do not find any political news of great public interest ; the national attention being entirely absorbed by the great struggle now made by the Roman Catholics of the United Kingdom, to obtain a participation in the good things of Govern- ment; for the great points of contention after all, appear to be, that they shall be admitted to hold office under the Crown; and to the right of sitting in either House of Parliament. Sir FRANCIS BURDETT had introduced a Bill to this effect, and had obtained, on the first division (on a call of the House) a majority of 13 ; the numbers being for Emancipation 247, against it 234-the number of members who voted beiug 481. Mr. PLUNKET, the At-   torney-General for Ireland, and Mr. Secretary CANNING delivered most energetic speeches, ia favour of the measure ; and Mr...

HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 September 1825

HOUSE OF COMMONS. c On the 4th March, the new plan for the augmentation of the Army was laid before Par- liament. Lord PALMERSTON, in proposing the Esti- mates, said it was quite possible for any one to suppose that there was any thing in the in- ternal condition of "Great Britain which re- quired the augmentation, or, indeed, in the state of any of the three countries forming the United Kitigdom. His Lordship, however, was more explicit in stating that, for which the augmentation\was not wanted, than that, for which it was. However,though several Mem- bers professed not to understand his state- ment, and no one Member professed to under- stand it, yet all seemed, by a sort of mysteri- ous sympathy, to know that the Noble Lord had very good reasons for what ho did. Colo- nel DAVIES " thought the appearance of our relations with foreign States required the in- crease of the Army." Sir ROBERT WILSON considered " every increase of our establish- ment as an excrescence on our Constituti...
