[?] (From the Sydney Gazette. Jan. 29.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 March 1829

Australian & Tasmanian Wools. (From the Sydney Gazette Jan. 29)                         This is a most important subject, and one that must interest every Colonist, more particularly at a period when we must look into own resources. In some of our recent numbers, and indeed we have often advanced the opinion, we stated that within seven or ten years, our exports would compete with our imports, and that, then, Australia would advance with a celarity which nothing human could impede. We are glad to find/our assertions borne out by men of the first consideration in Great Britain ; some of whom have unhesitatingly given it as their opinions in the House of Lord's, that New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land' will supply the Mother Coun- try with wool, so as to render it independent of foreign sup- ply, within a less period tha...

Shameful Abuses. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 March 1829

Shameful abuses. MR EDITOR,--In reading your Paper of last week, I was     highly pleased to see that YOU have again come forward in defence of the most oppressed members of our Island, the tailors and shoemakers, and you might add to these every me- chanic. Much has been said about the high price of labour, and the want of good artisans ; but all the writers, save your-     self, have passed unobserved the great cause.i Sjnce you   have began to raise the curtain, I trust you will allow me to   lend my feeble assistance, and I hope that others more quali- fied than myself will also step forward, and join in the endea-   vour to expose and destroy a system which is most mean and   disgraceful in itself, and injurious to the Public at la. rge One of your contemporaries seemed to refer particularly to per- sons residing in the couutry having shoemakers and tailors ; but what will yo...

New Australian Settlement, SWAN RIVER. (From the Sydney Gazette, Jan. 10.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 March 1829

New Australian Settlement SWAN RIVER.     (From the Sydney Gazette, Jan. 10.) In our Journal of Saturday last, we inserted an extract from the Courier newspaper, on the proposed new settlement at Swan River, of the discovery of which we erroneously gave the credit to Captain Stirling, of his Majesty's ship Success who visited that estuary on our West coast in the summer of 1827.   Since the notice of this river appeared in our paper, we have been obligingly favoured with some little history of it ; and as its banks may, ere long, be the site of a Western Co- lony, should, Captain H.W. Montagu (who, it appears, has   been despatched to it in the ship Crocodile) report favourably of it, on a more minute and deliberate exploration of the river   itself, and adjacent country, than it should seem Captain Stir- ling had effected in 1827, we are happy to give insertion to the communication, for the information of our readers....

Newspaper Stamp Duty. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 March 1829

Newspaper Stamp Duty. In adverting to1 a Government Gazette being about to- be printed in the sister Colony by contract, we in our last briefly alluded to the Newspaper Stamp-duty iu force (though not levied) in this infant Colony. We remarked, that the local Government had not yet levied this obnoxious impost ; and we expressed a hope that the Lieutenant Go.-ernor, in his sense of justice, would remit this tax altogether, to enable the different Piopnetors of the Colonial Newspapers to reduce the price, and morease the circulation of useful information throughout the Colony. The object, set forth in the pream- ble of the Newspaper Stamp Act, which was passed in Octo- ber 1827, and which is to continue until the 15th of October next, (when, if not previously repealed, we hope will be suf feied to die a natural death) expressly states, that it was in- tended," to prov}de»Fundfçrdefrayingthe charges of printing the Publie Acts, Proclamations, Orders, and Notices* of the Government of ...

Patronage. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 March 1829

". . ? . Patronage* ... I We have heard of other Colonial appointments which' have lately taken-place, ja addition to those mentioned in our last, | «^handsome salaries, of persons altogether unacquainted1 With, ándincosipctent to perform the duties of their situations. Family influence is the bane of the public service in Great | Britain. Many an aged veteran, giown grey in the service, and worn out with scaw and fatigue, remains with a tingle epaulet all his life, for want of family connections to forward his sait. The younger branches of the nobility, and the depen- dents on men of rank, absorb every thing worth having in all the departments of the State, both Civil and Military.1. Thus we find inoompetencyi and incapacity take precedence' of worth, capacity, and talent. Every day gives'us abundant proofs of the injury done by this destructive patronage, to the exclusion of deserving men. "'<'.- .'

Hail Storm. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 March 1829

Hail Storm                                         On Tuesday week last, a most 'tremendous hail and thun- der storm took place in the vicinity of New Norfolk. It came on suddenly and seemed to take a particular direction and to have spent all its fury in a small stripe of the bush. It tore up several trees by the roots, split many others, it ravaged everything before it. The hailstones appeared large as hen eggs;, some measured 2 1/2 incbes in circumference. All the birds flying about at the time were turned upside down in the air, as if shot. During the tornado the clouds became pitch dark, and all nature seemed to be convulsed by the terrible war of elements, which raged for an hour with unabated fury. Fortunately it was an ...

Sudds and Thompson. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 March 1829

Sudds and Thompson.       We find the endless case of Sudds and Thompson, soldiers of the 57th Regiment, still kept up by the Sydney Press.— The Governor, General DARLING, will be very fortunate if he does not find an impeachment for torture and cruelty preferred against him on his return to England. A Gentleman, upon whose veracity we can rely, gives us the following account of the manner in which a similar offence as these men's were treated in London, in the month of November 1825 :—A fine handsome young fellow, upwards of 6 feet high, and 24years of age, wished to get away from his Regiment, the Coldstream Regiment of Foot Guards. He stole a piece of leather out of a shop window, acknowledged the crime, and was committed   to Newgate. In two days after, his discharge was sent to him in the prison—his friends paid the prosecutor—and in ten days he was acquitted, and went home to his friends without further molestation.
