Catholic Emancipation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 May 1829

Catholic Emancipation.       It is mentioned in the best informed circles in England, that His Grace the Duke of WELLINGTON, feeling the force   of an offer made on the part of Dr. Doyle, the Catholic   Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, has held a personal con- ference with Dr. Murray, the Catholic Archbishop of Dub-   lin, and the aforesaid Prelate, on the subject of Catholic Emancipation.     It is well known that Dr. DOYLE, added to the most exem-   plary piety and deep erudition, wields the most powerful pen perhaps in Europe. He has effectually silenced the boast of Trinity College. Dr. Magee, the present Archbishop of Dub- lin, who, in delivering one of his charges to his Clergy,   described the Dissenting Church of Ireland, as possessing re- ligion without a head, and the Catholic Church of Ireland, as having a head without religion-both monsters in ...

" In arbitrary .Governments, where no intercourse subsists between the Executive Power and the People, where the latter have 110 insight into the proceedings .of the State, but are left to judge merely from the event, how far they might have been wisely designed or honestly conducted, it is not surprising thal they should consider every failure as a crime, and demand a victim for every disaster.

' ( Mr Wilmot Horton is a verj houest aud well-meaning man , yet if his late transfer from the Colonial Oihce shall put nu end to his fantastisies about emigration, the country and hiriiself may be equally congratulated upon the change. The< truth is, that a well-meaning man, when he gets a wiong idea in his head, is the most consummate of public nuisances, I His consciousness of intending all for the best makes him stub- born in the wrong , he cannot conceive his honesty can be ah surd, any moie than (us perseverance through thick and thin can be often but another shape of obstinacy, that no expe I rience can soften, 01 sullen selt-will that nothing in the shape of reason guide.

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: MAY 1, 1829. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 May 1829

      HOBART TOWN   MAY 1, 1829.   Let it be impressed upon your mind, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palladium of     all join Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius. We must confess we have fearful odds to en-   counter against both our contemporaries united --the one the well-paid Official, the other who is continually hinting it is "our turn next" to be paid for printing a Gazette. We are there fore obliged to throw ourselves behind the ar- mour of truth ; and, protected by that shield, their bolts not only fall harmless at our feet, but even rebound and recoil not unfrequently upon our opponents themselves, and their invisible assistants.

The British Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 May 1829

The British Colonies. If it be unquestionable, as seems to be allowed on all   hands, that Ireland cannot remain for another Sessions of   Parliament in her present state of discontent and confusion ; equally manifest does it appear to us, that the greater por- tion ot the British Colonies will soon be lost to England, if the principle on which she has hitherto acted towards them be not completely reformed. If we do not justice to them,   they will say to us, " why then we must take the first oppor- tunity of establishing for ourselves a system of Government, under which our local interests will attain, as they ought, a preference over those of a distant and unsympathising power."   The Parliamentary Committee on Canada recommends, " that it is not desirable that the Judges should have seats in the Legislature, or mix themselves up with politics." They also recommend the sale of the Chui clelands, and the abo- lition of the regulat...

The feeling with which the proceedings of Colonial Governors, with regard to the Liberty of the Press in British Colonies, has been marked by the Authorities in Downing» street, on several recent occasions, must operate as a salutary check on all who would dare to trample on the constitutional Tjglits of Englishmen. The energetic and independent style in which this Paper is conducted, must ensure to the Pro- prietor the good wishes and support of that community in whose behalf his talents are employed."

Steam Navigation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 May 1829

Steam Navigation« We are glad to observe by the Sydney Gazettes of the 31st March, that the maohinery of a Steam Boat had arrived at Sydney, to facilitate the intercourse with the Districts of the Hawkesbury. t We wish we could say that come of our wealthy fellow Co- lonists, who employ their superabundant capital in exacting heavy interest on loans, would employ a portion of their ca- pital in something more generally useful to the Colony. This Colony opens many fine fields for enterprise to peisonspos seesing capital, and which are totally disregarded by those who posses the greatest capital, who alone ui ehest qualified for such undertakings. For instance, the whale fishery, that great source of wealth, which seems to invite our attention by coming to onr very doors. This business is left entirely in the bands of our poor, but industrious, .and we must say much neglected native youths, instead of being pioiuoted by those wealthy men who can find no employment for the money they h...
