To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 February 1826

To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. SIR, - I have observed with considerable satisfaction the favourable account given in your last Paper of the Saxon Merino sheep, in which you however say,"we are indebted to one of our most respectable Settlers, Mr. Gillies, for the importation of the finest woolled sheep we possess. There is a trifling     inaccuracy in this statement, which perhaps might have escaped your informant; namely, that   instead ot our being indebted to one, we owe the obligation to two other Gentlemen, viz. lo Mr. Horne, of Ross, and to Mr. Leake, of Elizabeth River. These Gentlemen have been joint importers with Mr. Gillies in the sheep from Saxony, and consequently   entitled to two-thirds of credit attributed to this transaction. It is likewise due to Mr. Reid of the Macquarie River, to state, that he was an importer of Saxon Merino sheep, even   prior to the ariival of the other Gentleman. &...

Norfolk Island. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 February 1826

Norfolk Island This settlement appears to be in a state of progressive improvement. The Amity return- ed to Sydney on Thursday from her trip there to carry supplies. The following ex- tract of a letter will be perused with interest : Before the arrival of the Amity (a Gentle- man writes to his friend) we began to think the good people in Sydney had forgotten us. Our flour was nearly exhausted, and we had been for a fortnight on half allowance, our tea, sugar, spirits, &c. had been done for some time, but we had abundance of meat, fish, vegetables and milk, so could feel no dread; of starvation. This is the sweetest spot you ran possibly, imagine-the climate fine beyond description, and all our little so- ciety being very agreeable makes it pleasant quarters. We have lots of sport—the wild boars which are numerous and terribly fierce afford gallant amusement; when they are closely pursued, they will attack you in a very formidable way ; my dog has got innu- merable wounds in ...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 February 1826

To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,-As I find that the Venerable the Archdeacon of New South Wales has favour- ed this Colony with a visit, for the purpose of delivering his spiritual charge to the Clergy here, I trust he will also, as the King's Visitor, enquire a little into our Pub- lic Institutions.. The want of an Orphan School is certainly worth his attention, above all others. I hope he will represent this to   His Majesty's Government at home. I trust also that he will call upon the Secretary (the Rev. Mr. Bedford) to the Auxiliary Branch Bible Society, and enquire a little into the management of it. It is well known, that this Society published their Annual Report, for the satisfaction and information of the Public, for the first three years, during the time the old hands had the conducting of it. When Mr. Bcdfoid and other new hands ar- rived, it was boasted that great alterations were intended to be adopted, for the imprové ment of this Institution in p...

Sydney Intelligence. By .the Larne, we have received'Letters and Newspapers to .the 19th inclusive. The AfLstralians'assembled on the 12th,in Public Meeting, to address His EXCELLENCY the GOVERNOR on his arrival.-Mr. W. WENT- WORTH opened the buciness, in a speech of first-rate talent, energy, and eloqueuce. Ile described the state ot the Colony, commented on the non-descript qualities of the Execu- tive Council,and the illusory expectations held out by the numerical encrease of the Legislative. He stated plainly, in which sentiment he was ' loudly cheered by the whole' Assembly, that nothing but TRIAL BY JURY; and TAXATION BY REPRESEN- TATION could satisfy the just claims, of the Colony. After a most brilliant display of oratory, he concluded by moving the .Ad- dress, which was unanimously agreed to", and the following Gentlemen deputed to wait upon His Excellency therewith : Messrs. Wentworths, Lowe, (J. P.) Redfern Lawson, (J. P.) Terry, T. Raine, Lord, Hall, D. Cooper, Pritchett...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 February 1826

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1826. In the present depressed state of this Colo- ny, the most important consideration (after that of our internal liberties), is the giving all possible facilities and encouragement to mer- cantile enterprize. This embraces two points. First, that ot obtaining the greatest possible return for, and giving the greatest possible en- couragement to, the exportation of every ar- ticle of Colonial produce ; and secondly, the limiting, as little as may be, either by British Imposts or Colonial Fiscal Regulations and Re- strictions, the admission to us of such articles as are of necessary introduction. The first of these points depends upon the fostering pro- tection afforded by the Mother Country to our export trade ; and the second to a wise, liberal, attentive, and above all economic Co- lonial Administration ; and to a most care- ful husbanding of the Colonial resource's; so as that the taxation to which we are sub- jected in the shape ...

(From the Australian of Jan. 30. Previously to the High DUjnitary of our Church committing himself to the perils of the vastly deep, nie took occasion to unbur then his mind to the Chief Justice, on a sub» ject which gave his venerability great and "manifold uneasiness. He considered that ha was a great man, a very great man. among the little pigmies of New South Wales. Ha considered that he was the first of his cloth; and, moreover, a Member of the Government -a Member of the Council, Legislative and Executive. ,He considered also that he had not only a right to give an opinion of passing events; but, that his opinion was of the ut- most consequence, and that his censures would operate like a writ of excommunica- tion in days of old. Under these impres- sions, this Hiejh Djgnitary of our Church, unburthened lum of nis caies to the Chief Justice. The Public Meeting had given him sore offence ; the disloyalty- of the people had grievously oppressed him. They had dared to proclaim the...

<&ngi«¿U (uorrcoyonïifircc. To the Editor of the Colonial Times.

I defy the false hypocritical writer to state any single act pf oppression committed in the way he alludes to, ex- cept it wight haye been of some of his own creating, aris'mg out of his own affairs.

New South [?]ales, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 February 1826

New South Wales. Letters and Newspapers have reached,us to the 30th, inclusive, by the John, in which vessel arrived part of the band and of the corps of drummers, and a detachment of the 40th Regiment, under the command of Cap-   tain Stewart.-The remainder, we under- stand, may be daily expected in the Med-. way. Although a considerable numerical addition is made to our Military force, yet it is but little effectively increased; for when the band, the drummers, the taylors, and all the other non-combatant odds and ends of a   regimental head-quarters are taken into the account, we believe that when the detach- ment of the 57th goes away, we shall not have so many bayonets for field use, as we have at present. But; the great point will be gained-the object which we have all along perfectly understood. We now have a Regi- ment here! farther we say not at present ; but we shall not fail to return to the sub- ject in due time. The Governor in Chief, General D...

Lausnceston News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 February 1826

Launceston News. Extract of a Letter from one of our Cor- respondents :-       " Perry is taken, so that all Jeffries's gang are now in custody.   "There is much mis-representation as to   Mr. Dark, in the Government Gazette. Par- sons and Shean, two prisoners of the Crown, were the men who seized him. Mr. Dark and the others had not quitted the hut. " Jeffries, upon crossing the North Esk, went to Scott's hut, for the purpose of re- venging former supposed injuries. Fortu- nately, Scott ¡und his wife were from home. He has watten his life. The crimes he de- tails are more appalling than can be ima- gined. The treatment of many women who had been placed under his charge in the Watch-house, is monstrous beyond descrip- tion. He openly boasts of the favour he re- ceived from Mr. Mulgrave, who, he says, would never believe any thing against him. " Colonel Balfour has generously given £20 to the men who took Jeffries.

4Polom.il ÎTimro. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1826. We have waited, not without anxiety, in the hope that some explanation would have been given to the Public^ of the nature of the Government to which "His Majesty's people in this Island are at present subjected. We lament that such has not been afforded us ; because we consider that the people have a right to he made acquainted with the new con- stitution, to which, as loyal subjects, they owe the most dutiful obedience. On the arri- val of Geiieial Darling, we were told in a Pioclamation, that this Island had become " indrpem eut" of the Government of New South Walps, but the extent of that indepen- dence was undefined. We know that it is at most but partially so; because we have a Governor in Chief as heretofore, and we ex- pressly see in the Government Regulations issued by that Officer, that the great objec- tion which we had to independence no lon- ger exists. We mean the power of Appeal irom the decision of the Supreme ...

The money-market in London has been affected considerably by some rumours respecting the internal condition of Spain ; but by the last accounts, it appears that a temporary tranquillity has been again íestored to that country. There H, however, some little talk of Ferdinand resigning t his Crown to his Biother, who, it is said, ¡s not quite so bad a man as himself. A partial change of Ministers was confi- dently spoken of in the best informed circles in London.-Mr. Brougham and Mr, Canning were known to be on the most intimate terms.-Lord Gifford, who was understood to be Chancellor in expectancy, had waived his claim in favour of Mr. Brougham, in order to obtain a Cabinet upon a broad basis. By a recent Order in Council, the widows of Assistant Surgeons in the Royal Navy, are entitled to a pension oí £36 per annum. The Prince Regent, Captain ...
