Lord Bishop of Jamaica's Charge. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 February 1826

Lord Bishop of Jamaica's Charge. A Friend has just put into our hands a copy of the first Charge delivered by the Lord Bishop of Jamaica, from which we make the following extract. The Right Rev. Prelate, with a right judgment, devotes the greater part of his eloquent address to those duties which demand the exertions of a West Indi- an Minister. The passage which we are a bout to quote possesses however, a more general interest : " Let me earnestly entreat you, to pay particular attention to the manner in which you perform all the Church services. Let your constant guide be simplicity ; the very semblance of affectation, odious under all cir- cumstances, is here quite intolerable. No natural powers of elocution can compensate for the want of good taste arid sound judg- ment. ' Let those fine and impressive models of prayer be delivered to the people with a clear and distinct pronunciation, with correct emphasis, and in a manner snitable to the varions occasions on which they were co...

Co tformpoutent*» The article, signed " Opinion," is copied ver- batim from the Cyclopajdia Britannica. It is besides too long. We shall enquire into the circumstances of the Government Farm, at New-town, and the pig fattening ; and if correct, as it is a serious and important subject, it shall ile treated accordingly. The writer, signing himself " Able,11 is quite mysterious. If lie will speak out, he shall receive proper atteution. " More Licentiousness" shall be inserted. We thank the author of " Retaliation,'' for his favor, but we cannot condescend to re- ply by personalities, although in self-de- fence, and even attacked by the Govern- ment as we are in the shameful manner he so properly comments on.

Sydney News (Our Correspondents write as follows.) The Venus, Captain Kilgour, was to sail for Port Dalrymple on the 13th instant, for the purpose of obtaining a cargo of wheat for the Cape of Good Hope-price limited to 5s. 6d. at which it is supposed she will not get a bushel. Mr. Macqueen and Mr. Thomas Williams will proceed by her. Sydney is in a very flourishing state. Ge- neral Darling is becoming very popular. His sentiments are of the truly liberal kind. The Triton sailed for England on the 9th in- stant, fully laden with Colonial produce. Passengers, Major Goulburn, late Secretary ; Lieut.

(FROM THE COURIER.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 February 1826

(FROM THE COURIER.) Whatever feelings of respect we entertain for the Lord Chancellor-and we are not a shamed -to confess that these feelings are higher than those w<? entertain for any other Judge or any other Minister-our regret at the hands into which the prosecution of legal reform has fallen, and at the malevolent pur* poses to which it has been applied, arises much less from the injustice and malice of which Lord Eldon is the object, than from the obstruction opposed by the conduct of Messrs. Brougham« Williams, and Co. to the removal of one of the mostpestilential systems of fraud, oppression, and extortion*, in every form, by which any nation was ever afflicted. The last number of the Westminster Re- view (a work conducted with equal power of intellect and perversity of design), has de- voted nearly thirty pages to the abuses of common law pleading alone, and concludes its article upon the subject with the follow- ing apology for inadaquacy to a full expo- sure of...

Colomal Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 February 1826

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1826. We were in hopes that the appeals we have made to His Excellency Lieutenant Go- vernor ARTHUR, as to the system of coarse and slanderous abuse, which has been the sole object of the Government Gazette, since its assumption by the Government, would have produced some cessation of so disgrace- ful a proceeding. But not so. In their last number, the Government writers still pro- ceed in their calumnious career, in all the bitterness of their usual falsehood, invec- tive, and malignity. We are, therefore, again driven to the necessity of shewing to the Public, to whom alone this conduct is at- tributable. We shall do so fully, fairly, and conclusively. It is the invariable prac- tice of these writers, to make assertions with ouf proofs, and to reply by contradiction, without argument. We have shewn by plain and undented, and undeniable facts, and we have established our statement in the most, ir- refragable manner, that the Newspaper, called the H...

PRINTING PRESSES. (From an American Paper of Sept. 1.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 March 1826

, PRINTING PRESSES. I (From an American Paper of Sept. 1.) I stated some time ago that I had complet- *?? ed a small steam press, or a press to work with lever power, and with sufficient rapid- ity to produce 2,000 impressions, per hour, but could not discover a satisfactory mode of supplying my ink-rollers, and solicited the co-operation of some of my yankee bre- thren. A Mr. W. H. Hale, who hails I un- derstand from Boston, and is a silversmith, called upon me and soon removed my diffii culty by the formation of\an ink trough, which, supplying one roller, communicates the ink rapidly to the other roller ; and af- ter a short time my model was complete, and is so simple and efficacious, and works with so much ease, that 2,500 impressions may be thrown off in the hour ; and by the introduc- tion of a heavy fly wheel, the press is work- ed by a crank, and with the labour Of one hand and two boys to feed the cylinder with paper-thus superseding the necessity of steam, water, or horse ...

CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 March 1826

: -VW-" CONSTANTINOPLE. The following is stated in a recent letter to be the prices of provisions in the above capital ; which would seem to point it out as a tempting part of the world for persons of small income to live in. But when We set off against this, the probable scarcity of money, and the actual absence, as we know, of all security or protection for liberty or property, we are not inclined to suspect that even this astonishing cheapness of all the ne- cessaries of life will induce many persons to emigrate to Turkey, or to exchange the dear ness and safety of their own country for the v cheapness and insecurity of the dominions of the Sublime Porte.

'I he accumulated wool ofthree years, from his whole flocks, of very superior quality, was totally destroyed ; which, with ii ve stacks of wheut, buildings, furuituie, ice. has caused a loss to that Gentleman, which . ¡t?3000 would not replace. We trust, that the measure of crime of these wretches is now , completed ; 'and that our next accounts of i them will be that they are in the hands of justice. While we are on this subject, we cannot«but express our extreme regret, that more promptitude is not shewn in the giving the promised rewards on all occasions when the object is attained. We understand, that much dissatisfaction prevails, in consequence of the men who apprehended Jeffries, not «having received.the promised rewards.

%au}\cmon JSTÍU)0. | j Five hundred bushels of wheat, at eight shillings per bushel, have leen received into His Majesty's Stores, by tender, from Mr. A. Charlton; the proprietor of the new* flour mills, lately built upon the river Tamar. One thousand tons of flour, the first ground at these mills, have also been supplied to Government by the enterprising owner. Launceston is quite glutted with merchan- dize from Sydney. Several persons are bringing up their wheat.-Captain Kilgour, who has come here expressly for the pur- pose of purchasing a full cargo of wheat, for a foreign market, but cannot get any under 8s. per bushel. ü pon an average, the crops at the other .side ol'the Island are very fine and abundant. The ciops of bailey, potatoes, and hay, are unprpeedently luxuriant. Ewes, of the best sort, are £1 each j we- thers, from 12s. to 17s. 6a.

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

FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. The case of Walker v. Archdeacon Scotty it will be recollected, was disposed of by the Supreme Court on Tuesday week ; and, the Archdeacon was restrained from proceeding further in the matter of complaint which he had brought forward against the plaintiff in prohibition. The Attorney not satisfied with this decision, applied to the Court by motion to the effect that the plaintiff be compelled to declare in prohibition. (The meaning of this is that the Archdeacon be supposed by a fiction of law to have disobeyed the order of Court, and proceeded against Walker, not- withstanding the prohibition to the contrary; and, that upon such supposed disobedience, Walker brings the matter befóte the Court again, and in such a way as to get a more so- lemn determination of the question.) The Chief Justice declined attending to the mo- tion in the absence of the plaintiff's counsel. The Chief Justice further added, that from the nature of his own official situations, it happe...
