The Magistrates' Assessor. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 March 1826

The Magstrates' Assessor. In our Police Report last week, we stated that, on the occasion of Captain Kellie hav- ing been charged with shooting at one of his sailors, Mr. Stephen appeared as "Assessor   to the Magistrates." That Gentleman is ge-   nerally unfortunate in his debuts. He has, on this occasion, " assessed" in a very extra- ordinary manner. The prosecutor, a sailor, charges Captain Kellie with shooting at him, and wounding him. The Magistrates take the evidence, and remand the Captain for further examination, admitting him to bail I in £300. The next day, on the same evU f j dence, without a single word in addition, he is fully committed; but admitted to bail in the sum of £2000! And in this the Ma- gistrates, avowedly acting by the advice of their Assessor, Mr. stephen ! And how does this Assessor act ? He gravely asks the pro- secutor upon what Act of Parliament he pro- secutes ! Jie tells him, most learnedly, that there are three or four ; an...

London Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 March 1826

üontro» BxtiNUíe. We make the following extracts from the Morning Chronicle of tne 28th September. For obvious reasons, we foi bear publishing the stiictures in The Times, Chronicle, and JUvamiuer, to which we have before alluded. 'They are chiefly of a personal nature, and founded upon events and refei enees made elsewhere^ of the tiuth of which we know not. We suppose the ft lends of the high in- dividual alluded to, will take care that they are not unanswered. It will be observed, that the following rematks are principally applied to New South Wales : " Lord Rvihuust must now be convinced how much he has been imposed upon, and will be taught what faith to put in local Go- vernments ; the most respectable inhabitants of the Colony have been denied by the She liff, the humble privilege of stating their grievances to Parliament.

Grady, the Bush-ranger. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 March 1826

Brady, the Bush Ranger. We have the gratification to announce the apprehension of this daring offender. He is safely lodged in the gaol at Launceston. On Tuesday, in consequence of private informa- tion, Lieutenant Williams, 57th Regt., with 14 soldiers and 4 armed prisoners, fell in with the banditti, near Launceston. Both parties fired. The bush-rangers fled. Two were separated from the rest. Brady and four others passed Mr. Rose's farm, and es- caped at that time. Mr. Rose, with two pri- soner servants, went immediately after the other two, and succeeded in capturing Bryant-the other robber escaped. On Thursday, two of Mr. Lawrence's prisoner servants, fell in with Goodwin, on horseback. It was not true, that his companions in crime had shot him. They had thrown him into the river, to sink or swim as he might be enabled. Mr. Lawrence's men captured him, and lodged him in Launceston gaol. On Saturday night, a party of armed prisoners, observed a fire near the Watery Plains, about ...

Dreadful Catastrophe. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 March 1826

Dreadful Catastrophe It is with the most poignant feelings of re- gret we have to announce one of the most melancholy events which ever occurred in     these Colonies. About a year ago, Captain Wilson, of the Bengal Army, arrived here for the benefit of his health, which had suf- fered severely from long service in India. A few months ago, he went to reside at Ken- more, the estate ot Charles Robertson Esq. a Scots Gentleman of the first respect- ability, who arrived here as a Settler, with his family, in 1822. Captain Wilson came to town a few days ago, and was observed to be in a very melancholy and disordered state of mind. He returned to Kenmore on Thursday evening. On Friday morning he rose early, and covering himself with a blanket, walked into the Derwent, which nearly sur- rounds Mr. Robertson's estate, forming a peninsula. He returned, however, and join- ed the family at breakfast. Shortly after- wards, Mr. and Mrs. Robertson were in the grounds ne...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 March 1826

HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1826.   We were in hopes, that the publication of the Revenue Accounts (or rather the skele- ton of such, which is afforded) would have been concluded last week, so as to have enabled us to have commenced at least such an analysis of them as their meagre nature would permit. But another portion has been   alone produced. We are therefore obliged to postpone this most unpleasant duty until the whole " abstract" is before the Public. It is almost incredible the "mistakes" which we shall prove pervade even these truly " concise," but most confused and unexpla- natory documents. But the profuse manner in which the public money has been disposed of, will appear, when we bring it fairly under consideration, to have been unex- ampled in these Colonies, and we believe in any other. We repeat it is almost incredi- ble ! and nothing but the documents before us could have induced us to have believed that so unwise, so inju...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 March 1826

-100 To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-Since writing my former Letter, which I perceive you hesitated to insert, circumstances have occurred which render it unnecessary and improper. The horse is sold ; and of course I cannot now with pro- priety expect you to state the facts contain- ed in my last. Although you may rely on it, that there was not a syllable but what could have been established, not only by myself, but every other passenger in the ship. In departing from your Colony, I have only to offer my best wishes for the speedy restoration of prosperity and tran» qui li ty, and to assure you, that from what I have witnessed, there is no description of speculators, more cautiously to be avoided than a ÑA.UTICAL JOCKEY.

FROM THE COURIER, JUNE 28. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 March 1826

FROM TUE COUniFIi, JUXE 28. . Theie'is no person, we piesume, at all con- versant with the current transactions of the ' day, who has not read or heard, and few, we vo'uld fain hope, without unutterable dis- gust, the base, calumnious, and malignant attacks upon the LORD CHANCELLOR. Ineveiy way this veneiable and illustrious chai ac- te r has been an honor to his country ; in every way, by a knot of sordid libelleis, he - has been traduced and insulted. A more lar.corous spirit of hostility-more un re le ut v iivg fury of persecution-more systematic and unblushing falsehoods-have never, within our recollection, been directed against one individual. All the filth of a factious press ?-all the insolence of anonymous and se- cure enmity-have been employed, to low- er the talents and disgrace the virtues of this eminent Judge, as if he were fit only to be the mock and scoff of mankind. His trivial failings have not only been travestied into, crimes, but the best qualities of his mind an...

Supreme Court. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 March 1826

guyvenwjiïonvt Yesterday, Captain KELLIE of the Cape Packet, was put upon his trial, for shooting at Valentine Hobbs, a seaman of that ship, under the circumstances mentioned in our Police Report last week. The Court was occupied from ten in the morning till eight at night, when the witnesses .of the prose- cution not having been all examined, and the Gentlemen of the Jury expressing a wish to view that part of the ship where the cir- cumstance occurred, the Court adjourned until 9 o'clock on Saturday. The witnesses were all sworn to hold no communication as to the case, and Captain Kellie entered into fresh recognizances. In this stage of the proceedings, we consider it would l>e impro- per to make public the evidence which has been given. ^We shall report the whole trial in our next.

original correspondence. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 March 1826

©risuui t£ûrv«0tfontotttff. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-It is high time the Colony should have a payment of sterling denomination) as the shopkeepers in a small way haye al- ready began to fix a price of their own on the rupee. They now refuse to ta.ke it for more than 2s. 3d., and pay it away for 2s. 6d. Formerly, it was generally taken by every person at 2s. Gd. ; and two rupees were con- sidered equivalent to a Spanish dollar a,t five shillings. I congratulate the Public, that the Bank are going to take immediate steps to return to sterling payment, in conformity to the Government Regulations on that head ; and I hope the word currency will never be known again but by name in this Island. The sterling British coin of shillings and. six- pences I hear will soon be issued, w hich of course AVÍII prevent the necessity of the pre- sent paper circulation. And I expect those who nqw refuse the rupees at their cuiient value, will use their assistance to annihilate this dis...

Launceston. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 March 1826

LAUNCESTON   It is generally rumoured, that the account   given of the manner in which Murphy and the boy Williams were shot, is not strictly accurate. If the statements we have received are true, but which we do not think it pru dent to repeat, their destiuction was effect- ed rather in a singular manner. On Thursday last, Dr. PRIEST, who was lately shot in the knee by the bush-rangers, expired. He would not submit to amputation. On Thursday morning, Brady, Bryant and Goodwin, the bush-rangers, Jeffries, the mur- derer, and Perry, were conveyed on board the Prince Leopold for Hobart Town.   We were mis-informed as to the person who apprehended Brady. It was Mr. Bateman, a respectable Settler on the South Esk.   Brady's escape from Lieut. William's party,   wounded as he was, has created much sur- prise. He was shot in the lower part of the calf of his leg, and the ball he himself ex- tracted from above his knee. His d...

-000 To Hie Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-Having a sincere desire to benefit the Agriculturists_of this Island, and as it ap- pears from some letters in 'the, Government Gazette, that the weevil has been introduced into this Colony^ and is a subject of lamen- tation ; I am desirous to add my poor endea- vours against this enemy, and to endeavour to prevent, if possible, a continuance or re- petition of the same.-I observe, that various remedies are proposed, such as burnings, whitewashings, &c. Now, fcir, it strikes me, that, for the benefit of the Agricultu- rists of this Island, and also for the consu- mer, the best remedy would be, not to bring maize and wheat into it, as it is in these the Weevil principally, if not entirely, lodges. This, Sir, might not only keep away the weevil, but prevent the poor devil of a far- mer from being obliged to hawk about his barley, at the beggarly miserable price of 2s., 3s., and 3s. Gd. per bushel ; because, forsooth, the Commissar...

-000 - To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-When a measure connected with the prosperity of a country, and having the os- tensible object of promoting its, welfare, emanates from those placed at the helm of affairs, it is to be presumed, that it is the ré- sultat" due deliberation, and careful en- quiry ; and I make no doubt that the amia- ble personage, who has the direction of the affairs of this Colony is influenced by the sincerest desires to promote its interests, to the fullest extent of his powers. Bui, Sir, the want of local information and that know- ledge, which personal inspection and expe- rience can alone bestow, too often frustrates the very best-intentions ; and it is to be ap- prehended, and when too late, to be lament- ed, that the present arrangement of forming a large town at New Norfolk, is totally ina- dequate, or in any way capable of promoting the internal interest of the Colony, or of the slightest encouragement of its agriculture.

To the Public. Our Headers are aware, that on Wednes- day morning last we published the pro'ce'ed ings,in tné cuse of1 Mr.' GELLIBRAND, His Majesty's. Attorney-General. It is with considerable astonishment we announce,that in the course of that day, Mr. BENT was served withtwo notices from Mr. STEPHEN. The first signified to him, that on Wednes- day next, he is to receive judgment in the Supreme Court as to the second Information for libel, upon which he was found « guilty of publishing," in September last; and that on the. Wednesday following, he will be again tried on the first Information, upon which he has been also already found guil- ty. We repeat that we are astonished at this ! Because we cannot in any way ac- count (reasoning upon ordinary principles), for the thus reviving prosecutions upon sub- jects which are forgotten, which occurred now nearly two years ago, and whjch, from xthe thus harassing Mr. BENT with notice after notice, exhibit what probably will be considered ...
