The u Times" are bad-'tis thus they boast Of being independent v " The freedom of our Press is lost, " And Trial by Jury is a ghost ; " The Officers who rule the roast. " Will quickly make an end on't. " 'Tis usual, when a year has pass'd, > " To view things retrospective. " There's much that wears a gloomy cast, " Our difficulties grew so fast; " Our Rival has our sale surpass'd, «' And rhino is defective. . . " The Naval Office is arranged " With Deputy Collectors ; " The Orphan School has not been changed, " Old Confidants are quite estranged, " And careful votes have not avenged ¡ " The rights of Young Directors. " Our grievances exceed belief, " To paint we lack a pencil ; « We want a Governor-in-Chief, " No dummies to afford relief, - " No subjects for a Lawyer's brief, Í« And ( old hands' in the Council !"

MISCELLANY, ORIGINAL AND SELECT. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 14 January 1826

MISCELLANY, ORIGINAL AND SELECT. The splendour of the English Court surpasses that of every former period, and rivals the fairy stories of Eastern magnificence. At the late grand hall and supper at St. Jamese's, the ornaments were of the richest description, in the style of Louis XIV, who was surrounded by men of taste, in preference to the Grecian order. The banqueting room was un- -equalled, of which our limits will not   allow us to give an idea. The table ser vice was entirely of gold. At the end of the room was a large buffet ; in the centre   was placed a superb solid gold salver, above which was the shield of Achilles, modelled by Flaxman and supposed to be his chef d'oeuvre, executed by Rundell and Bridge. On one side of the shield was the national cup, and on the other an antique tank. Behind these was a piece of gold plate, taken out of the Admiral's ship who commanded the Spa- nish armada. At the top were two gold   ewers containing ...

Qn the Monday following, His Excel- lency took the Oaths of Office, and as- sumed the Government. Owing, however, to the wetness of the weather, the public and official landing did not take place till the Tuesday, when the procession from the shore to Government-house was conducted in the most complete and splendid style ; the whole of the troops, all the civil and military officers, and a greater concourse of spectators than perhaps ever before took   place in the Australian world, being pre-   sent on the auspicious occasion. The Colonial Secretary subsequently read an Order of the King in Council, dis-   solving the late Legislative Council of New South Wales, and appointing two   new Councils. The Executive Council is composed of four Members, viz. the Lieutenant Governor,...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 21 January 1826

To the Editor. Sir,---There has bean of late rather a strong expression of individual sentiment on the impolicy of continuing to banish prisoners from the Mother Country to this Colony, and this has arisen from the hor- rible atrocities which are now committing, not only by the bushrangers, but by wretches whose attacks on the property and lives of the Colonists, have been more covert and unfortunately more successful. To any mind that can seriously contemplate the probable moral condition of this Island ten years hence, the increase of its prisoner population, and consequent accumulation of crime,--the prospect must be replete with disgust and alarm ; and no pecuniary advantage to be derived from such a system, can counter- vail the evils to be reasonably apprehended from it. Feeling as I do, that the unli- mited influx of prisoners will ultimately overburden the Crown and the Public with their maintenance, for which the labour will not be an adequate return ; and that the penal ch...

MISCELLANY, original and SELECT. ' We copy the following character from Blackwood^ Magazine, of I. E.Hall, author of a monthly work called the Portfolio, -published at Philadelphia :-" A block- head; as a writer, he is a bad one, a mis. chievous one, a foolish one. He is endowed with less than moderate abili- ties, with no scholarship, no principle, no heart, no courage, no decency, no character. And yet, strange as it may seem, he is worth calling sternly to ac- count-:vvorih driving before us with a whip of scorpions. There will be those whom it were beneath a man to assail with«any thing--but a whip. Me is one of them. A child, an idiot may lift a flood-gate and let in a deluge upon a pro- vince :-he has done this. He got pos- session of a spring,-a fountain,-the waters of which did circulate some years ago.
