English News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 March 1829

English Ti ewe* Up to the latest accounts in June from the Greenland whale fishers, the season had proved very unpropitious. A whaler, called the Active, Hutchinson, had been lost otf the North Cape of Iceland, with one fis», about 500 seals, and eight of her crew. None of the other ships had a tish amongst Hiern at thia- time, though seals were pretty plentiful-the Lang having caught 3000, Union 20GÖ, Perseverance 1400, and most of the vessels were consequently changing their course to Davis's Straits. This news is all un favour of South Sea adventnrc, as the bad success of the NorJ.li Sea fisheries must cause iio inconsiderable advance in oils. [Had we (in Tas- mania) a couple thousand tons-to ship home just now, trade would not shew the downcast looks it does.] The new Government contract in England of beef and pork, for the late season, was expected to be full 05,000 tierces. How different the conduct of England towards I iel and has been iu this respect, compared with the condu...

Execution of Leach. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 March 1829

Execution of ¡Leach« ' This victim, to the baneful effects, of ungovernable temper, expiated hie horrid crime of murder upon the scaffold on Mon day morning last, at 8 o'clock, in the presence of a large cou course of people, whose universal feeling was tinctured with pitying compassion, at his untimely end. From the ciicuiu stance of His Excellency having convoked a meeting on Saturday evening last, consisting of himself, the Chief jus- tice, Colonial Secretary, Captain Montagu, and the Gentle- men composing the Jury, a strong hope was entertained that the life of this most unfortunate individual would have been spared. Not impeaching the validity of the sentence, or doubting the soundness of the assembled Gentlemen's cogita- tions, we are of opinion that sufficient palliative existed m the case of Leach to render him an object of " Royal Mercy." It was not ii premeditated murder, nor effected with mniice prepense, but the effervescence of momentary, violent, and un- governable pas...

House of Commons, MAY 30. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 March 1829

DAWSON next moved, that a sum not exceeding £Í20,000 be granted to His Majesty, to defray the expense s of bills drawn, or to be drawn, by the Governor of New South Weles, for the year 1828. Mr. HOME objected to this vote, on the ground that the details of the applications of the sums voted for the last year, and the year before, were not yet before the House. The ¿»House ought not to"vote until they knew how the money was to be applied. If it should be for any thing but the expense of convicts, he would object. Mr. B A Rino said, the House ought not to consent to'this "' vote, nntil they had the details of the sum voted last year, j The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said, that though the ' details were cot ready, yet the general pnrpose was known, which was for the maintenance and other expense of convicta.

Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 13 March 1829

Original Correspondence. MR. EDITOR,-The article in the Courier, entitled " Country POA/," and' which geneially occupies a column of that valuable paper e\ery week, contains little clap-traps of a most nauseating nature, set by a pair of lucky knaves, who aie as w,ell known, as if they affixed their hands and seals to the puthug paiagiapiy> that have appeared, dated from all di- rections, but of late fioin " Antill Ponds," and " Salt-pan Plains." The pains the precious pair take to circulate, or cause to be eil culatee!, reports of their vigilance, is an in- nocent species of praise-hunting that might well be passed by as undeserving of notice-too contemptible fo be talked about -but wnen they attempt to gull the Public they are paid to serve not to delude, it then becomes necessary to hint to the wilkie!, that they are watched, and will, if they don't mind what they aie about, be exposed. J. allude to their oblique defence of the impolitic and îuinous system of impounding cattle...

Taxation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 March 1829

" " Taxation. * * jur. ISDIT0R¿-I have observed in the Tasmanian of last week, that the Colonial Fund is saddled with án expense of eleven hundred a-year, to audit the accounts of the Colonial. Treasurer !-and that the Colonists pay, Mr. JOCELYN THO- MAS eight hundred pounds per annum, and two clerks which ? are attached to his office, one hundred and fifty pounds each , making together, the sum of two thousand three hundred pounds per annum, for. auditing and receiviug. the Colonial Revenue of this Islandi said to be by the Courier newspaper to have amounted last year to the sum of forty-two thousand pounds. I believe it is computed that we have a population of'tvtenty thousand persons in this Island ; one-third of which are chil- dren, one-tbird prisoners, and one-third free inhabitants. Therefore the whole of this Taxation is thrown upou about seven thousand persons, who are taxed about six pounds per j head. -lam, Sir, yours, &e. OBSERVER.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 March 1829

    Marriages. We are glad to find that our observations on encouraging matrimony among the prisoner population has been attended to by the Authorities. We reckoned no less than fourteen cou- ple dressed in gay attire, approaching the Temple of Hymen, on Monday morning last--all eager to be made happy, and to increase the physical force of Tasmania. One sad disap- pointment however took place on the occasion. A damsel, who appeared as joyous as the rest, and who seemed as wil- ling as her companion to embrace the happy deity, just as the ring (how ominous !) was being placed on her finger, ex- claimed NO ! The Clergyman looked astonished-the would-be bridegroom disappointed and foolish-and the mai-   den, how shall I describe her ? it is indescribable ! " She blushed, and looked unutterable things." She was asked why this strange turn of mind-she replied he was not able to   keep her-when he immediately said, oh ! you ungrateful wr...

Patronage. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 March 1829

Patronage.       MR. EDITOR,-My attention has been called to the appoint- ment of Mr. CLARKE, the son of the Magistrate, to the situation of Postmaster at Launceston, as lately appeared in the Ga- zette. It is said that this youth is not more than l8 years of age ; if so, I consider the appointment of this young man to such an office very injudicious, to say the least. But this is not all. It is pretty currently reported that this youth has also been appointed Port-master or Guager, with a salary of £300 a-year ! -thereby giving one individual two snug offices. How far he is competent to fulfil either of them, time will tell. But what surprises me most is, that while so much of the public money is lavished, away upon this youth, an old and most respectable inhabitant, and deserving servant of the Public, Captain WELCH, late Harbour-master at the Der-   went, has been appointed to some other public situation, at   Launc...
