, English News. The Earl of Liverpool died suddenly at his seat at Coombe Wood, on the 4th December, aged 62. The places of War- den and Admiral of the Cinque Foits, vacaut on this event, it is said, will be offered to the Duke of Clarence. A blue ribband also becomes vacant. Mr. r Cecil Jenkenson, half brother to his Lordship, succeeds to the peerage, which leaves a vacancy in the representation of East Gi instead. It is confidently s&ted that Colonel Lumley, acting as Lieutenant Governor of Sierra Leone, in consequence of the death of Colonel Denham, will be appointed Governor ; that the mixed Commission win not be removed to Fernando Po ; and,that the preparations for a settlement at the latter are or dei ad to be discontinued. The Criminal Law Bill, relating to offences against the person, promises in its results to destroy that rancorous spirit of litigation unfortunately so prevalent, and to terminate, by a short though equitable process, those petty quarrels that bave...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times SIR,-I have to request that you will contradict a state- ment which appeared in the Colonial Times last week, rela- tive to my son's lost child, wherein you stated that his female servant had been sent to prison, on suspicion, &c. &c . I can assure you no such thing took place, neither did any suspicion fall upon the woman. She having misconducted herself in my son's absence, he sent her to Campbell-town, for an order to be admitted to the Hospital, as she feigned ill. I saw the woman sent off by 3 o'clock on Monday the 23d ult. in the afternoon, some hours before the little boy was missing. - I am, sir, your obedient servant. R. Harrison.

Lunatic Asylum. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 17 April 1829

Lunatic Asylum. We have more than once called the attention of the Go- vernment to the necessity of having a proper place to receive persons suffering under the calamity of an aberration of intel- lect, where they would be treated with kindness, and perhaps relieved from their afflicting malady. One of our Correspon- dents mentions a case having occurred a few days ago, of one of those unhappy creatures going about the country, and com- mitting depredations of every kind, without being conscious of the impropriety of his conduct. Loss of life, or property, is just as likely to ensue from one of those creatures, as the smallest theft; they cannot see the difference between a great   or a small offence. The erection of a house of this descrip- tion, would do much credit to the Government, and it is one of those indispensables to which the strictest economist could not object. Suppose murder ensued from the neglect of letting those people wander at large, who could conscie...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES. SIR,-The "Tasmanian" of last week,'in its remarks upon your short article of the 3d instant, with reference to a meritorious Public Officer.j.would insinuate, that you are changing your principles, and thus raise a bugbear to deter you from'the exercise of that true Independence, which your best friends most entirely approve« The cool observer, Mr. Editor, can pretty plainly discern the little jealousy peeping out in this. The wrriler of,lhe remarks cannot, with a per- fectly easy seat, see the meed! of praise, however well-earned, awarded to any individual not Iii st selected by himself, with other views than the public interest, as a subject of panegy rick ; but upon such an one, and let him but be one whom the writer has an inteicst in courting, he can lay on the colouring matter with a hand os little spaung as the most open to flat- tery could desire, So thickly indeed, nnd with so little delica- cy, as not unfiequently to make his leaders pa...

'Insolvent Debtors. I 1 1,1 I m | . . ' '.?".(?From, the Australian-;March 13.) ' r \ In tho new Act, we do not peiceive there is auy express provision made for insolvent debtois. No doubt, the laws re .¿arding'iniíolvency have opened a Wide door to abuse, as Well in this Colony, as elsewheie. Still their principle is humane, and theil Operation far less hurtful fhaù any Draco-like seve- nty of laws which might be substituted in their stead. But though it appeals that in the new Act, Parliament have neglected to make expiess enactments regarding insol- vent eases-yet, reasoning f»om the general tenor of the Act in question, we should be disposed to lean rather to a beliefthat this, like other matters not expressly defined, was meant to be left to the discretion of the Judges, for sec 1 enacts, " That until his Majesty shall ''cause charters or letters patent to be issued, the Supreme Courts of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, respectively, instituted by his Majesty's lot ters'...

The following is the Official Document which has issued from the Colonial Office, setting forth the terms on which Set- tlers will be permitted to locate in the country adjacent to the   Swan River, on the West Coast of New South Wales, where it is intended to found a new Colony. The conditions are such as ought to be acceptable to parishes ; they will be enabled by them to send their willing and able agricultural paupers comfortably out to this Settlement, where £15 will purchase them the freehold of two hundied acres of land.
