March of Intellect. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 2 November 1829

March of Intellect. We were sitting in our closet the other evening, our pen placed behind our ear, and our whole person enveloped in smoke, for notwithstanding all the taxes and interdicts which the Government and our friend of the Tasmanian have laid upon tobacco, we cannot help now and then indulging ourself with a whiff or two. We had wheeled our chair (which, like the Intangible's runs upon castors) to a window which looks into the street, where we sat musing upon the rapid progress which the March of Intellect is making over the   face of the earth, wondering when the time would come that the bullock-carts of Van Die- men's Land will be propelled by steam or dragged forward by paper kites. A volume of the Ency- clopedia lay before us, open at the article Leger- de-main. We bent our body towards it, taking care at the same time to elevate our pipe till it formed an angle of 45. degrees with the horizon. In our zeal to forward the March of Intellect, we wished for t...

POLICE INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 2 November 1829

POLICE INTELLIGENCE. On Thursday last, George Pennington (free by   servitude) was brought before the Police Magis- trate, charged with stealing from the person of Henry Harris various silver coins to the amount of £1 4s. 2d., in the house of Mr. Hichard Hea- ney, by whom Pennington was brought to justice. Harris gave his evidence with visible reluctance, and several times endeavoured to equivocate, for which he was very properly reprimanded by Mr. Gordon, who threatened to commit him for com- pounding felony. Pennington was fully commit- ted for trial. On the same day John Cantwell, per Earl St. Vincent, sentence life, and William Chapman, per Albion, free by servitude, were brought up, charged with feloniously receiving and having in their possession on the morning of the 26th inst. one silver watch of the value of two pounds, and one pair of kerseymere trowsers of the value of fifteen shillings, the property of Thomas Faro, two cedar planks, the property of John Furl...

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1829. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 9 November 1829

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1829. It is ihe. public duty of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but in the discharge of this duty he r must not expect to find his road perfectly free, from the arrows of those who are interested in pi-eventing the jftgis of truth from confronting and dissipating their power. Another murder bas been committed at Macquaru* Harbour, and for the self-saine reason as the former murders at that place ?lave been committed, viz. — that the insuf ferable miseries of the perpetrator may he terminated by an ignominious death .on the scaffold. We are surprised to fiud^&at all the ' hell-born horrors' of Macquarie Harbour still exist, notwithstanding the forcible eloquence of Murk at, the sober '»nd solid arguments of the Colonial Times, and the feeling representations of the Cou rier have been excited against them. We rejoice with the Tasmanian that the Jour nalists of Van Diemen's Land have only one opinion respecting this den of blopd. We r...

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16,1829. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 16 November 1829

LAVNCESTON ADFERTISER. ' MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1839. It is the public duty of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but in the discharge of this duty he must not expect to find bis road perfectly free from the arrows of those who are interested in preventing the /Bgis of truth from confronting and dissipating their power. A Tax is a sacrifice of one part of our pro perty for (he preservation of the remainder. From hence it follows that there should be do taxes, euner amongst people in a state of slavery, or amongst savages: for the former have no longer any property, and the latter have not yet acquired any. But when a Nation has become wealthy enough to tempt the avarice of its neighbours, when its Government has become considerable enough to require expences— when forces ere required in order to protect its frontiers, Us provinces, or its navigation, a revenue becomes necessary, as it is but reasonable that the persons employed for the public good ehould be maintained by the Public. In ...

SYDNEY INTELIGENCE. ? ? 1. The venerable Mr. Broughton, the new .'-»? deacon has already become very popular in the Sister Colony. The' following is an extract from the Sydney Gazette of the 3rd. ultimo :— « We are told that the Chief Justice was, on Thursday, two hour* upon his legs in the Council I Chamber, 'vindicating/in his usual eloquent and masterly style, the legality and expedience of ?W^^.^fc' s; and we ««£»& by the Colonial Secretary, and by our new Arch deacon.
