Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 May 1829

1 Original Correspondence. - , ' 'Mr. Editor,-In your last number there is a letter sign» ed " No Turncoat." If you are as independent as you pro fess to be, you will insert this reply thereto ; otherwise I must address myself elsewhere. The author of 'that article seems quite as obvions as if he had signed it ;. otherwise he is but little obliged to whoever else may have brought him before the Publio, unless indeed he should have silly vanity enough (which can hardly be cre- dited)' to think it possible that the Public takes an interest in ought that concerns him. This writer, however, be he who he may, signing himself " No Turncoat" has two objects in ' view ; the one is to abuse a Gentleman, whose advancement in public consequence, is so annoying to his envious foes ; the other to bring into notice an individual who forsoolh has been grievously ill treated, because the Government forgot him in the last Commission of the Peace. The only cause of sur- prise was, how he managed to g...

Visit of the Russians. FORT JACKSON AND ST. PETER AND ST. PAUL'S. PROJECTED TRAFFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 May 1829

Visit of the Russians. FORT JACKSON , AND ST. PETER AND ST. PAUL'S.   PROJECTED TRAFFIC.     Lieutenant Kromsehenko, Commander of the Russian sup- ply armed tender Helena, and his officers, we hear, are greatly struck with the noble appearance of Port Jackson, as well as taken with Sydney - so superior in every way to any of the Russian settlements in the Northern Seat, of eighty or ninety years standing. A profitable provision trade, we are dis- posed to consider, might be entablished between this and St. Peter and St. Paul's, with other settlements on the Kams- chatkan Coast, the principal quarters of the Russian fur trade. St. Peter and St. Paul's may be from eight to ten weeks sail from this, and on nearly the same section of lon- gitude, though no doubt a very considerable way northward towards the pole. It would be far preferable with regard to the Imperial Government, to sending out provisions con- stantly from European-Russia by the cir...

More Crim. Con. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 8 May 1829

More Crim. Con. The Australian of the 10th April, says, that-" A certain   "gallant gay Lothario,", whose name at present shall be nameless, was recently found en couchant, and fast   locked in the arms of Morpheus, beside a married woman, and by the lady's husband ! Poor Cornuto, trembling, like a Reed, from dread of the probable consequences of disturbing this Son of Mars from the bosom of his Venus, composed him self with abstracting the seducer's regimental small clothes and accoutrements, and depositing them in the custody of the Police. Endeavours have been made,we hear, to prevent the publicity of this faux pas; to get it hushed up, by private compromise, and by a certain conciliatory creature, who takes matters under his wing ; would he be so generally obliging in the case of a humble Civilian, so detected ? but here, alas ! " Dat veniam corvis, vexat censura columbas !   " Laws grind the poor, and great men vale the law !" &nbs...

Reported Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 May 1829

Reported Changes., It is a current report, and pretty generally credited, that Mr. Dudley Feredy, our High Sheriff, is about to re- sign, and to return to England, with a snug fortune. We should have been better pleased, however, if this Gentleman had chosen to have remained and settled in the Colony, and   to have spent his fortune among us. We are far from   grudging him the fruits of his labour, though upon public grounds we find it necessary to point out how injurious it is to the interests of an infant Colony, to appoint men to lucrative situations, who drain the Colony of the money they acquire in it, by depriving it of so much of its capital stock, every shilling of which is severely felt, while the balance of trade is against us. We understand that he is to be replaced in his office, by Mr. Hamilton, the Police Magistrate, at New Norfolk. It has been for a long time reported that this Gentleman was noted for the first vacancy, worth his ac- ceptance...

Swan River. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 15 May 1829

Swan River.   We have noticed elsewhere, that several vessels have left England for this intended new Settlement, on the Western Coast of New Holland ;to which it is alleged the French lay a prior claim, and that they have sent several ships of war, and some vessels loaded with supplies, for the purpose of establishing themselves accordingly there. We understand that no less than £50,000 had been already subscribed in England towards establishing this Settlement. It is said to be patronized by the Marquis of Sligo and other Noblemen of Rank and Fortune, who propose establishing a resident Peasantry at the Settlement.   Sir J. Vincent, of the Royal Navy, is going out there in his private capacity , also a great many German famiies as labourers, who are both an industrious and hard working people. Mr. Peel, the cousin of the Home, Secretary, is appointed   Commissioner of Lands for this Settlement. We may naturally oalculate' that the population ...

Commercial Information [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 22 May 1829

i Commercial Information* - extract of a Letter from a Commercial House in London to a Merchant in Hobart Town, dated 26th November: .* There have been three sale» of Australian wools lately, and we consider that they have gone off at rather higher rates than the previous ones of tbe present season. Indeed, Aus- tralian wools, generally, have fetched better prices this year than last ; notwithstanding that tlie greater proportion of them were shipped in a very greasy and dirty state, arising no doubt from the scarcity "of water in the Colony. We have long considered that they were rising in the estimation of the manufacturers here, of which this is a convincing proof; and we feel assured, that a strict attention to cleansing and sorting will be the means of enhancing their value considerably. One bale of the Australian Company's Saxon fleeces sold on the 24th ultimo at 7s. per lb. ; the wool from their French Me- rino flocks at 3s. 10£d. and 4s. 6d., and the inferior sorts at Is. G£...
