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

Colonial Times.   HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 1826.   In a Supplement to the last Government Gazette, there is inserted, what is called, " A statement of the Colonial Fund " for the   last year. It is most erroneously so called ; it is any thing but such. It is a confused jumble of figures, mixed without order or ar- rangement ; in total departure from the old established usage, in continual piactice in these Colonies ; and it is in every sense of the word, incomprehensible. As the ac- counts are to be produced piece-meal, we are prevented from taking a general view of the whole, and this we consider a great pub- ic grievance. The Government writers, in a most long and laboured article, ushering it forth, have endeavoured to gloss over the disadvantages attendant upon the long de- lay which has occurred. This is done in what they consider a dexterous manner. They do not touch upon the causes which have prevented the publication...

Latest Sydney Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 March 1826

Latest Sydney Intelligence We last week received exclusively, by the Govenor Arthur, the Sydney Papers to the 9th. We have this week the advantage (owing to the kindness and attention of one of our valuable Sydney Correspondents) of communicating to the Public, intelligence from Sydney (also received exclusively), to the 12th instant. There had been no arrivals from England since our last. On the 11th, the Sir Godfrey Webster sailed for Calcutta. The Sydney Journals are unusually barren of intelligence. We have made as copious extracts from that truly independent Paper, The Austra- lia, as our limits would admit. Of the Syd- ney Official Gazette, it is unnecessary to speak. It is nearly of a piece with the Go- vernment rag here. One of our Correspon- dents writes-: "what trumpery trash Howe's   Paper is now made up with; the absurd folly or malevolent personality of which it is com- posed, has now become generally disgusting. If Government (as is supposed is intended) r...

Most of the Civil and Military Officers were present. The Rev. Mr. ROUINSONT, A. M. preached from the 13th chapter Hebrews, 17th verse.-'* Obey them thal have rule ovei you, and submit yourselves, for they walihfor your souls." Mr. Robinson's discourse was descriptive of the reciprocal duties existing betweeu the Clergy and their flocks. It was exceedingly well delivered. After the conclusion of the Church Service, the Archdeacon went to the Communion Table, and the Cleigy (Messrs. Knopwood, Youl, Robinson, Bedford, and Gerrard), having arranged themselves on the outside thereof, the Archdeacon delivered his Charge.

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 March 1826

-000 To the Editor of the Col nial Times. SIR,-I am sorry to have to communicate to you, the grievous intelligence that a nest of rats infests my neighbourhood. They, how- ever, are not very numerous-I believe but two : and they are so apprehensive of being taken, that they keep close in their holo6. j hope the race of this noxious vermin (not the " moving vermin" of Hobart Town) will not encrease, for it is a sadly destructive animal, I attribute its arrival in this quarter to some " cheese parings and candle ends," which were strewed about in a saw-pit, dug by Two Go- vernment Sauyers, kindly lent lately to one of my neighbours. Oh! -these rats are (rrpnf nuisances ! ?Your's, Mr. Editor, "faithfully? Tin-dish Holes, March 1, 1826. SllAKE-HIM.

Supreme Court MARCH ,7.   The KING V. KIRWAN. The prisoner, who was a Serjeant in, the   Buffs, was found guilty at Launceston under the 10th Geo. III chap. 48, of having received goods burglariously stolen. Upon the trial it appeared that Mr. THOMSON'S house had been entered by a window not fastened,and that the thieves, after committing the robbery, had quitted the house by unbolting the back door, which being a breaking out after a larceny, is a burglary ; and the prisoner was convicted of having received theproperty stolen under the above circumstances. . The prisoner having taken advantage of the suspension of the At- torney-General (GELLIBRAND), retained him as his Counsel ; and that Gentleman this day stated to the Court, that he had applied to the Lieutenant Governor on the subject, by whom he was released on the part of the Crown, and that he therefore appeared for the prisoner, to move an arrest of judgment - if his so do- ing met with the approba...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sxn,~When warped feelings regulate the mind, it is not. surprising, that perverted rea-^ son will deviate into the grossest absurdities, and indirect proceedings, to fasten its malice oh the object of its hatred, with a serpent's venom.and a vampire's hold. Nothing less than the splenetic effusions of a rancorous mind could attribute the letter of " DISAP- POINTMENT," as was done by your Rival, or attempt to set asitje and ridicule the real distress, sufferings,, and disappointments of a hard-working, industrious class of the com- munity ; and wjthout whose labours^ the present abundant -'harvest would not have been ; though -very little of its ultimate pro- duce falls to their share. No, Sir, that let- ter emanated from one, who, iu common with too many others, is smarting and suffering un- der the most sensible disappointments; who, after'having sunk a handsome capital in agri- cultural pursuits, instead of being able to rea- lize a return, fin...

To thé EDITÜR of the COLONIAL THIES. " Sobriety, cease to be sober, '* Cease labour le dig and to delve." SIR,-This is the age of reform and libe- rality ; the golden days are restored. We may eat, drink, and be merry without danger from the nasty fi.fas. the old shop is shut up; and I trust old John Doe and Richard Roe are securely locked up in it. Glorious times ! I'll make the grog, port, sherry, and claret fly about, and to the devil with all accounts, for old p.fa. is dead. But let me stop and examine this a little. This " One of the People," may be a great de- ceiver. I must look a little into this, least I get into the wrong box. I am glad I read the letter over again, for I perceive the poor man is so bewildered, that he appears like one of the Priests of the ancient Temples, who first wrought themselves into a phreiizy, and then Cou red out the effusions of their confused rains. Poor man, he does indeed seem under the influence of a distempered mind ; he raves at the indust...

THE BUSH-RANGERS. Dreadful Ourcharges and Murder! [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 March 1826

THE BUSH-RANGERS. Dreadful Outrages and Murder ! Extract of à letter from Launceston, dated     on Monday last :--"On 'Saturday evening last, Bradys with hîs whole party of four- teen attacked Mr. DRY'S house ; and, after putting in the" necessary centinels and secu- ring the servants in an inside room,, proceed- ed to rifle the house of all its contents -very coolly emptying all the drawers and boxes of their contents of linen, clothes, and every   thing valuable, and deliberately tying them ' up in bundles to be conveyed away on horses' backs. One of the servants escaped into     town, and brought a strong party out, who arrived at the house while they were all in- side. Owing to some unfortunate circum- stance,they however escaped through the back door. They had been two hours in the 'house when the party arrive, and from the   house they rendezvoused in Mr. WEDGE'S tent, at the back of it. An order was...

English News, [CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 March 1826

ENGLISH NEWS [CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.] General BESSIERES, who, it will be remembered   was one of the first Spanish Chiefs     who rebelled against the Constitution, in   favour of absolute Monarchy, and organized   the brigands called the Army of the Faith in   Catalonia, revolted again in September against the government of FERDINAND. The Count D'ESPAGNE, at the head of 4,000 troops (part French), followed him ; and the few men who had joined him having fled, himself and seven others were taken, and shot by order of Ferdinand the following morning, with- out further ceremony. The celebrated Baron D'EROLLES, another of the Spanish Officers   to whom Ferdinand owes his throne, has been also put to death. The EMPECINADO, well known by almost every British Officer who served in the Peninsular war, has been   also put to death by the order of Ferdinand. Sir JOHN DOWNIE is now Captai...

Equity Proceedings. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 March 1826

î^autty ïJHocccîiingii. We make the following extract from the St. James's Chronicle of August 4. It affords some little commentary on the reniai ks we have this day made on the important subject of the proceedings in the Coutts of Equity. It is headed "ABUSES IN CHANCERY ;" ad-   dressed "To THE RIGHT HOV. LORD REDES U\LE;" and dated" Fleet Prison, July 28th, 1825: My Lord-It is the fashion of the present day to speak of the Lord Chancellor ina way which, from thirty-two years' experience as a suitor in his Court, 1 have a right to say he does not deserve. May I be allowed to point out one of the evils of his Court, which might save him avast deal of time if redressed. Any of the King's liege subjects can file a bill in Chancery, and thereby, right or wrong, put the defendant to an enormous expence. As, for instance, your Lordship will recollect, some years ago, the Judges complained of the wine at Appleby on the Northern Circuit, and ordered the landlord to give them ...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 March 1826

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1826. Another portion of the " Abstract of the Colonial Expenditure" has been published by   the Government. It has filled us with asto- nishment! We shall shew to the people, as soon as this most extraordinary account (if such it can be called) is altogether before us, that a more incomprehensible mixture of mis-calculation and absurdity, never yet came before the public eye. The expendi- ture of the public money has been most inju- dicious and unprecedented, even by the naked and unexplanatory statements which have been put forth. Unexplanatory, because this second division is more " concise," than the first. We are told of the " conciseness" of these accounts, which was even made a subject of boasting. They are indeed so " concise," that it would have been quite as well if the mere balances alone had been published, certified, " upon honor," by the Colonial Treasurer. Such a proceeding would have been much more satisfact...
