How we ïiave perfoi mod our task, the Public voice -can alone decide. We have had many diffi- culties to contend with. Some of them, we have oveicome; others still exist, and again , others hang over our head?, in a sort of fear- ful abeyance ! The conduct of an Indépen- dant Journal, is at all times and in all situa t ions, certainly an ai duous undertaking.

Launceston Constabulary. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 January 1826

Uauiueftton «ßoimaimlavp. We insert bereunder a Communication from foui Gentlemen, who, it will be seen, state that " they command Companies of Constabu- lary Guard." This pompousandhigh-sound- ing designation, we hope will have some ef- fect in putting down bush-ranging, and checking crime. We. have heard of many new fangled offices ; but Captains (for as such we supposeihey mean us to understand them) of Companies of the Constabulary Guard, is a new description of rank, and a new descrip- tion of force. It is incongruous and incon- sistent in its very expression ; and oue of the Gentlemen has been for so^great a part of his life so perfectly accustomed to Military af- fairs, that he must have been laughing at his compeers when he affixed his signature' to their manifesto. We lament, however, to witness that these Constabulary Guard Com- pany Commanding Gentlemen (the authority for which, and some other little circumstan- ces connected therewith, as we have their Own designation of...

Murder at Launceston. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 January 1826

Murder at Launceston "It is with feelings of the utmost horror, that we have to make public the following appal- ling circumstance. On Saturday last, Jeffrey, the notorious villain, who lately broke out of the Launceston watch-house, accompanied   with the two miscreants who followed him, after having robbed Mr. Barnard's hut, pro- ceeded to the residence of a respectable Set- tler named Tibbs, about 5 miles from Laun- ceston. They arrived there about noon. Mr. Tibbs and his wife, a young and respectable woman, to whom he had been married about   two years, with their child, and a servant of a neighbouring Settler, named Basham, were in the house. The ruffians attempted to bind them, but upon their offering resistance, these diabolical murderers shot them both. The man fell dead; Mr. Tibbs was dangerously     wounded, but he escaped with his life, and contrived to give an alarm. The whole town of Launceston, with one accord, rushed...

The Aboriginal Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 January 1826

The Aboriginal Natives. On Friday last, a party of about 150 na- tives attacked Mr. Stocker's hut, near the Western Creek, and wounded one of his ser- vants, James Cupid, in three places with spears ; after which he succeeded in driving them all away by firing at them. The Attorney-General, J. T. Gellibrand.     Esq. had safely arrived at Launceston ; ana the Criminal Session was to commence on Wed- nesday. There were upwards of 60 prisoners for trial, and many for most serious offences. We received a very valuable Commu-   nication from a most respectable quarter, up on that important subject, the improvement of our sheep flocks. We regret that it ar-     rived too late to be attended to this week ; but it will be duly noticed in our next. The letter from "Observer," with some ne-   cessary omissions, shall appear in onr next.

Execution, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 January 1826

Execution. This morning the awful sentence of the law was carried into effect upon the eight following criminals : — Samuel Longman, for robbery ; William Priest, ditto ; George Har- den, for sheep stealing ; James Major, for cattle stealing ; Charles Wigley, for sheep- stealing ; William Pollock, ditto ; John John- son, for robbery ; and James McCabe, ditto. —At at an early hour the Rev. Messrs. Bed- ford, Knopwood, and Carvosso, were with the five first unhappy men. The Rev. Mr. Conolly attended the three last, who were Roman Catholics. The Rev. Gentlemen ad- ministered the consolations of religion with the happiest effect ; for the whole of the wretched sufferers were brought to a perfect   sense of their offences, and of the justice of   their sentences. At a few minutes past eight, Dudley Fereday, Esq. the High Sheriff, at- tended by the Under Sheriff, and a consider- able cortege, arrived at the gaol. The Cler-   gymen immediately brought...

The Green Bag. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 January 1826

The Green Bag. We understand a Green Bag (as to which the celebrated one in the Queen's case is but a trifle) is in course of manufacture, for transmission to His Majesty's Ministers, as to the licentiousness, immorality, and other deadly sins of Tasmania. We have heard   somewhat of its contents, which are so mi nute, that the President's speeches at the Sorell and the King's Birth Day Dinners, with the necessary animadversions thereon, occupy 37 pages ! The Attorney-General's affair of course is a most important feature. But the Colonial Times !" Alas for this proscribed Journal ! It is some comfort, however, that by the same conveyance, a Black Bag will be forwarded to the same destination, tolerably well authenticated. Its effects may be ex- pected to be seen in about 12 months. Do the " confidential" suppose that the friends of Tasmania are asleep. This would be worse drivelling than their own. No, no. The Black Bag will take the Green Bag for its Text. We shall an...

Sydney Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 January 1826

Sydney Intelligence. By the Darling, which arrived on Mon- day, we have received Letters and News- papers to the 22d ult. The information they contain will be best understood by refer- ence to the extracts which we have made, and by the following summary:- General Darling assumed the Government on the 18th December, immediately on his arrival, and landed publicly in great state on the   19th, the following day. The Military lined the streets from the King's Wharf to the Go- vernment-house, a distance rather more than a quarter of a mile. His Excellency pro- ceeded, accompanied by the Acting Gover- nor, and attended by the Chief Justice, the Puisne Judge, the Archdeacon, the Colonial Secretary, the Sheriff, bearing a white wand, and all the Civil and Military Officers. It was at Sydney as at Hobart Town - no cheer- ing. Mr. Howe, in the Official Gazette, says "the people mused" (this is a strange   compliment from such a quarter to a new Governor.) The proce...

Launceston. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 January 1826

Launceston.   Independent of our regular Correspondence, -we have been this Week favoured with seve- ral most interesting and valuable Communi- cations, which our limits oblige us to arrange in the shape of a summary. We trust our friends will be no less convinced of our at- tention to their favours, and that we shall receive a continuance of them. The Su- preme Court, after repeated adjournments, to the great inconvenience of many persons, as well witnesses, as others who at this particular time, the harvest being in full ope- ration, can be ill spared from personal atten- tion to their farms, met on Thursday last. Blair and others were put on their trial for bur- glary ; the Jury retired at 3 o'clock, and continued in deliberation until 7; when, having repeatedly stated to the Chief Justice, the impossibility of their agreeing, they were allowed to separate for the night. They met the next morning at 10 o'clock, and continued shut up until 12, when the Attor- ney-Gene...

Trial by Tiry. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 January 1826

Cttal fi» Sut». We have already expressed our admiration of- all the measures which His Majesty's Ministers, those truly enlightened men who now wield the sceptre of the glorious Bri- tish Empire, have introduced for the benefit of that great nation. To Mr. PEEL'S admi- rable Jury Bill we have also offered the hum- ble tribute of our warmest gratitude. We rejoice to see that in this sentiment our con- temporaries at Sydney (for the official Go- vernment rag here elicits no feeling of a generous natur«, personal scurrility and slander being its only feature), unite with us as to the satisfaction which has been the result of the receipt of this most excellent measure. We insert the following articles from The Australian of the,22d, and Sydney Gazette of the 12th December :.

Launceston. The Supreme Court sits from 9 in the morn- ing till 5 in the afternoon; the cases are very   light. - Pawley, the bush-ranger, has been tried, and acquitted for want of evidence. His Honor Chief Justice Pedder made some remarks as to the unsatisfactory manner in which the case had been prepared. Mr. Mulgrave stated to His Honor, that he had not finished his examination of the prisoner, and wished that he might be remanded. His Honor, with some observations upon the de- lay (the prisoner having been in custody for five months), ordered him to be detained un- til the close of the Session-then to be dis- charged, if not prosecuted. - Mrs. Von Bibra was acquitted.--Serjeant Kirwan was found guilty of receiving stolen property, but a point reserved, at Mr. Dawes's request, for him to argue before the Court, on its next Sitting in Hobart Town. - Baker, a constable, was taken and shot dead by the monster Jeffries, on Wednesday last.

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN   FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1826. In all countries, the first duty of every well regulated Government is the carefully providing against the possibility of famine. This is alone to be done effectually, by the early filling the public Magazines with wheat. In these Colonies, this most necessary mea- sure carries with it the greatest advantages. While it secures the great object in providing abundance of the most necessary article of food for man, it also, by giving energy to the market, and thus encouraging the landed in- terest, affords support to that great body, at a time, when of all others it most requires it; when the Agriculturist seeks from the produce of his labours, to obtain remunera- tion for them; in order to the discharge of whatever engagements he may have entered into during the past, so that he may renew them for the coming season. The Government is also a gainer by this very proceeding ; which, while it affords the necessary support...
