Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 20 January 1826

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the COLONIAL TIMES. Sir,-A period is fast approaching, which is looked forward to with great anxiety, by a considerable part of the Agricultural body. and one on which their future prospects and proceedings materially depend ; I allude to the coming Harvest, and the disposal of it. Experience has shown that for two or three seasons, the agricultural interest received a very severe shock; and many, very many, by desperate eiforts and anticipations, have endeavoured to keep themselves afloat, and a few months must decide whether they sink or recover. There is, however, one remedy to assist them, and I would, in the most re- spectful and earnest manner, submit it to His Excellency, which is, that wheat may be received into the Stores at 10s. per bushel, and not by tenders; and also, that, as soon as grain is ready for delivery, to receive it. This I propose, as from the causes I have stated, too many of the Agriculturists have been obliged to l...

Sydney Extracts. (From the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 20 January 1826

Sydney Extracts. (From the Australian.) There is something vastly amusing in ex perimentalising in the managemement of Co onies, and trying new inventions in their po- litical institutions. Some extraordinary re- sults, we suppose, are looked for from the creation of an Executive Council, and ap- pending it to the Administration of this Co- lony. But the way in which these results are to be accomplished, and the grounds on which expectations are to be realised, are carefully shrouded from vulgar ken ; and, we are to wait with patience, uncognoscent alike of the mysterious instructions by which appeal for advice to this newly constituted body is to be regulated, and of its magical influence, and its capacious attributes. We know that an Executive Council exists, that it is some- how or other to be associated with the Go- vernor-that it is to have some functions, some sway ; but all the rest is enveloped in secrecy. Not a glimmering of light is suffer- ed to break in upon the people, ...

Another Legal Fracas. COURT OF CHANCERY, JULY 20, 1825. Townsend v. Askew. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 January 1826

xtnotycv nugal dFvuM. COURT OF CHANCERY, JULY 20, 1825. Townsend v. Askew. This case produced an angry conversation between Lord Eldon, Mr. Agar, and Mr. Heald. Mr. Agar complained that the Mas- ter had allowed the Solicitor on the other side for 97 attendances, all of which had arisen in consequence of the Lord Chancel- lor's delays, and of the system by which pre- cedence was given to the hearing of particu- lar motions. Mr. Agar considered a regular cause list to be adviseable; the order of which not to be departed from. Mr. Agar noticed the cases of Lord Ormond, Mr. Be voir. Mr. Rhodes, and others, who being wealthy men, had obtained a hearing. Lord Eldon repelled the charge of undue prefer- ence with considerable warmth, in the course of which alluding to a remark of Mr. Agar's, as to lowering of the fees to Counsel of late years,'His Lordship observed, that " Coun- sel now received fees with both hands." Mr. Heald referred to the separation between the Law and the Equity Bars,...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 January 1826

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,—I beg leave to solicit a corner in your Independent Paper, for the insertion of a few lines respecting the great disadvantages the licensed victualler labours under, to what the illicit venders of spirits do. The licensed victualler, with respect to crown prisoners, is bound to keep regular hours, and observe certain regulations, ema- nating from Government. Also, to open his doors to constables at all hours, both night and day. These restrictions being violated,   he subjects himself to fines and penalties, imposed by the Magistrates. The illicit venders, or persons who keep   those places commonly known by the name of private grog-shops, do not lay under that restraint, nor are they subject to those re- gulations. At these houses, by keeping the doors shut, they can have prisoners dan- cing, singing, and carousing all night long ; and, should a constable approach who wished to do his duty,...

$S*mtg îsxtract0» (From the Australian.) i ne payment ot dollars at the new rate by the Commissary, has, according to public no- tification, now. commenced. It does not ap- pear that the current value in common trans- actions will undergo any change. By gene- ral consent they seem to be ás yet received as formei ly, and it of course will be for some time before they are reduced to their intrin- sic worth in circulation. The coin received hythe Commissary consists exclusively, we are informed, of English half crowns and six- pences. Those will not be issued until the whole of the dollars at present in the hands of the Commissary are in circulation. A Board of Officers is to be framed, for the purpose of carrying into effect the order of the Governor, relative to the inquiring into public departments. The Lieutenant Gover- nor is the President.

The Memorialiets' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 January 1826

The Memorialists' Letter. 'We have been favoured with communica- tions from several of the Gentlemen, whose names were so improperly introduced by the   Government Gazette writers, as " detestors" - of the sentiments expressed by Mr. Kemp and the other Gentlemen to the Lieutenant Governor, expressive of the indignation which they feel at the improper liberty which has been taken with them. One of these Gentle- men, as independent both in principle and property as any in the Island, expresses him- self in the following terms :-" You are al- ready in possession of my sentiments regarding the answer returned by the Merchants to the Lieutenant Governor ; it is useless to recapitu- late them. But the insidious manner in which the names of other Gentlemen and myself are dragged into the Government Gazette, cannot ' be too severely reprobated. It will not be passed over without a public expression of our feelings on the subject." We have other let- ters in which the same senti...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 January 1826

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 1826. The evil effects of withholding the Public Accounts from the eye of the Public, are daily more and more severely felt. It is a serious consideration to observe the deter- mination which is thus exhibited, on this vi- tally important subject; and with whomso- ever exists this pertinacity, its consequences are most pressing. The Government itself is most particularly interested in the making public these accounts, because the greatest good must follow, and no possible evil can arise therefrom. This is considering it as a mere matter of expediency. If there has been any misappropriation of the Public Re- venue, the difficulty of detection is always proportionate to the lapse of time after the fact. Far be it from us to insinuate that such is the case. But we know, that an event of that sort has occurred here, and of course another may occur. What check has the Public or the Government over its servants, but the frequent and accurate exhibition of ...

Launceston News. Summary of the Letters of our Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 January 1826

LAUNCESTON NEWS. Summary of the Letters of our Correspondents.   "I shall now conclude the history of the monster Jeffries. A few days ago, the wretch, with one companion, came up to a bark-hut, where a party that was in pursuit of him, consisting of two soldiers, a stockman, and three volunteers (two of them currency lads) were resting themselves. Jeffries fired into the hut, and wounded a soldier slightly. Soon after one of the soldiers came upon Hopkins (an accomplice of Jeffries) and found him asleep and without arms; he surrender- ed and was brought in.   " Yesterday morning a party of twelve men were resting in a hut, when a man was ob- served by a black aboriginal native boy, at a short distance, behind a gum-tree. The alarm was given, and he was instantly sur- rounded; it proved to be Jefriies. He beg- ged for quarter, threw down his arms (a mus- et and pistol), and was taken prisoner. He was seized by a prisoner for life, named William Parsons, who will of cour...

To the EDÎTOU of the CotoifUE TJMES. , SIR,-As every facility ought to be given to commerce, I beg to notice the present in- judicious manner by which only two days in the week are appropriated to take tobacco and rum out of the Bonded Store. ' Î beg to submit, that on every day in the week the Meichant ought to be allowed to take his Turn or tobacco out of the Stoies, on 'pavment of the duties. It often happens that per'ons come fiom the country, and are detained at a considerable expense io Hobart Town, because they cannot get exciseable articles delivered which they are in wanto!, except on particular days ; the tobacco on Tuesdays and Ftidays, and the sp'nits on Mondays and Thursdays. Therefoie, if i Settler an ives on Monday evening, and wants á basket of tobacco, and a puncheon of mm, he must wait till Thursday before his order can be completed. \ ' Now, Mr. Editor, is noi this a mercantile grievance which ought to be immediately temerlied ?

FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 February 1826

FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. - One article which apperas amongst the miscellaneous news extracted from the Co- lonial -Times» is deserving of general atten- tion. We allude to the letter addressed.to the Lieutenant Governor of Van Diensen's ¿and, and signed by the eminent Merchants of Hobart Town. This, to u>, is interesting. For it contains a piece of evidence which ir recusably shews the actual state of the Sister Colony. Unhappy differences, we were aware, liad long existed between the people and the Government; we had cherished a hope, however, that these differences were not to be ascribed altogether to the Govern- ment ; or, that surely it had managed to ar- ray on its side some influential persons, some people of consideration, some men of emi- nence, and that all the support it had was not to be looked for only among those in its service and in its pay. No! we learn from this letter that the Government does not re- gard the principal inhabitants of Hobart Town as its friends ; we...

SIR,-On glancing over the Government Gazette of the 14th u.U., I noticed an article en the subject of wool, wheiein the wiiter insumes positions, calculated in a high de- gree, to mislead those interested in so va- luable a branch of our Colonial commerce. To the three firstremarks it is unnecessary to reply, as the most ignoiant amongst us could inform him, that if we intend to grow fine wool, we should not keep haily sheep, mci that a small sheep is not likely to pro- duce so heavy a fleece as a large one. He proceeds to state, " the sheep should be shorn as soon as the wool is dry, especially in wann weather, nhfii the fleece quickly become1; gi easy, and less valuable, ßtc. Now it is well known, that our flocks at home are left 10 or 14 days after washing-, before they are shorn, in ordei to allow the yulk to rise ; this operation is of course more ia pidly performed in a wann climate, and is ewenlialfy necessrry to the pieservaliou of ...
