Uatm &»&n* ß finteUtgotre. By the Lang, we have received Letters and Papers to the 8th Inst. The following is a summary of their contents : General D WILING has published a most interesting Proclamation, founded on the Act of Parliament of the 6th, Geo. IV. Cap. 110, entituled " An Act for the Registering of British Vessels" by which all the former Laws relating to the Registering of British vessels are repealed, and new regulations thereon provided. We shall endeavour next week to publish an abstract of this very im- portant Act, by which the voluminous code of Register Acts are consolodated, and altera- tions are made very materially affecting all persons connected with shipping. *. It is publicly announced, that Dr. BOW- MAN, the Principal Surgeon, is " no longer" the consignee ora certain eminent Mercan- tile house. General D vu LING has prohibited all persons holding situations, from being concerned, directly or indirectly, in any sort of traffic whatever. The o...

The Bush-Rangers. It appears that immediately after the at- tack of this daring banditti by the party &nbsp; under the direction of Mr. Whitfield, Chief District Constable at the Cross Marsh, a se- paration ensued ; and Bird, Brown, Dunne, Gregory, and four others left Brady, and those of the gang in whom he more imme- diately confided, and retreated to their old haunts near the Lakes. ln the course of the last week, they made their appearance near the junction of the Derwent and Ouse, where they were seen by some stock-keepers. They have since robbed Mr. Triffit, sen. from whose house they took away every thing moveable, and the only horse there. They have since been seen in different directions in that neighbourhood, but no particulars are accurately known. &nbsp;

Colonial Times. &nbsp; __________ HOBART TOWN: &nbsp; FRIDAY, MARCH 24, 1826. &nbsp; We are again disappointrd. We are yet unable to submit to the Public the observa- tions which it is our duty to produce on the important subject of the Public Accounts, now weekly put forth in driblets-disjointed, unconnected, unsatisfactory, and altogether of a nature different to what has ever hereto- fore been witnessed in these Colonies, or 'which we trust will ever again be witnessed. We are unwilling to believe, that there is any design in so sub-dividing them as to keep back the.last driblet until -the Medway has sailed. But it is remarkable, that since .the first portion of" the Abstract" was pub- lished, each succeeding one has been less in "quantity than the former. The first and se- cond contained two pages of a half-sheet; the two last have' been each a single page indeed that of last week has been hardly so much. Why is this? why is not the whole 'printed ?

political Maxims, Regarding the importance of Agriculture, and the means of promoting its improvement, cantinued from the General Report of Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 31 March 1826
di political íWaxime, of Regarding the importance of Agriculture, and (U the means of promoting its improvement* con- ni United from the General Report of Scotland, fc« st su at -TI fit th P1 13. Agriculture is the only ' sure founda- tion of independent greatness ; and nations, whose greatness has depended upon mere commercial wealth, have accordingly ever had a mere ephemeral existence. 14. Freedom of internal commerce is es- sentially necessary to the prosperity of agri- culture. It is evident, that Merchants, whe- ther wholesale or retail, are as advantageous and necessary to the raiser and consumer of agricultural produce, as the producer and consumer of manufactures. So obvious a truth surely requires no illustration. The wholesale Merchant takes from off the hands of the farmer or manufacturer, whatever pro- duce they have respectively prepared for market^ replacing, by his capital, the capital advanced by either of them in suGh prepara- tion, and thus enabling each, with uni...

There is not the smallest foundation for the report. His Excellency General DARLING enter- &nbsp; tains large parties of Ladies and Gentlemen at Dinuer, on Tuesdays and Fridays in each, week.

^ ÎJootm-tpt. We are sorry to leam, that the four bush- rangers who have evaded apprehension, have again made theh> appearance. Mr. Til), !a Settler, near Russell's Falls, was plundered yesterday of all he possessed, by men sup-; posed, to be Cody and Dunne. The barn of Messrs. Council and Walker, Settlers, at Pitt Water, containing 2500 bushels of wheats was burnt to the ground on Tuesday, sup- posed by Bird and Tilly.-We bave this in- stant heard, that a party in the neighbour- hood of Jericho, yesterday succeeded in falling in with Birt! and Tilly: that the for 1 mer was shot, and the latter taken.
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 31 March 1826
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. Nothing has yet occurred to alter our opi- nion respecting the new appointment in the Court of Requests, notwithstanding that the new Commissioner has attempted^to perfoim the functions of the office, and has actually sat both at Parramatta and Sydney. When the period shall arrive for confirming or re tiacting the appointment, we shall be much deceived if the Colonial Government do not weigh most materially the consequences of -depaiting from the obvious views and inten tionsof the RomeGovernment, in not nominat- ing a Lawyer instead of a medical man to dispense the Law. The object of the British Ministers cannot be mistaken. It may be as- certained in a variety of instances connected, or not connected with this Colony ; but espe- cially in the present or in similar cases-from their conduct in reference to this very ap- pointment, as also in reference to a parallel case-the Ten Pound Courts at home. When the New South Wales Charter was framed, the nomination of ...

SHIP NEWS. Arrived on Sunday from Port Jackson, the brig John Dunn, Captain McBeath, with sun- dries.-Passengers, Colonel Thornton, of the 40th Regiment ; G. W. Pitman, Esq. and John Woodcock, Esq.-This vessel is chartered by Mr. Petchey, of Davey-street, for England, with a Cargo of Mimosa bark on his account. Same day His Majesty's ship Larne, from New Zealand, after taking on board the mail bag, she sailed for Port Jackson. On Monday arrived from Launceston, the Prince Leopold; with Brady, Goodwin, and Bryant, the bush-rangers, lately taken at that Settlement; and Jeffries, and Perry. . Circumstances have been developed with- in the last week, of a most extraordinary nature! They are in course of investiga- tion. We can only say at present, that we have reason to expect most important dis- closures to be shortly made to the Public.
Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 31 March 1826
_ - , t They may affect to despise newspapers that will, but it has required the lessons, the la- bours, the experience, of\ six thousand years, to bring society to a state so supeilativêly ar- tificial as to render a minute acquaintance with what is going on every where, necessary for the enjoyment of life at home, not among" the higher and intellectual classes only, but with all ranks and conditions of men, from the monarch on his throne to the peasant at "his plough. The poems of Homer and Vir- gil, the histories* of Thucidydes and Livy, the tragadies of Eschylus and Sophocles', the ora- tions of Demosthenes and Cicero,-the great- est monuments of genius, learning, and sci- ence, in ancient and modern times, were pro- duced in progressive eras and different coun- tries, not one of which could have given birth to that masterpie^ of ingenuity-a Newspa- per, till mau in " the social compact" had reached his majority, if we may use the ex- pression, and# the perpetual food of intelli...
Supreme Court. MONDAY, MARCH 27. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 31 March 1826
Supreme Court, &nbsp; Monday, M auch 271 Captain Kellie was this day acquitted, &nbsp; after a trial of three days. We mentioned in our last that he had been put upon his trial, upon an information charging him (capitally) with having shot at, and wounded Valentine Hobbs, a seaman of the Cape Packet, under Captain Kellie's command. The acting At- torney-General Hone, and the acting Solici- tor-General and Crown Solicitor STEPHEN, were for the prosecution ; and the King's At- torney-General Gellibrand (whose services for the Crown have been dispensed with by the Lieutenant Governor) and Mr. Dawes were for Captain Kellie. The Gentlemen for the prosecution exerted themselves most stre- nuously for a conviction, but Mr. Gellibrand (who defended Captain Kellie with the great- est zeal and ability) elicited from the very witnesses for the prosecution the plain facts, that the Chief Mate having been put in irons by Captain Kellie, the crew released him by sawing them off - ...
The Bush=Rangers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 31 March 1826
The Bush-Rangers. We have the greatest satisfaction to an- nounce, that the banditti with whose preda- tory operations this Island has been so long infested, are all but three either taken or destroyed. Tilly, Bird, and Dunne are yet at large, but the two former were so closely pursued, that their apprehension we consider certain. The apprehension of Brady and his companions, was notified By us in our last; &nbsp; since which, Constables Ayton and Worrell, with a party of fourteen armed prisoners, succeeded in falling in with Cody, Dunne, Gregory, Brown, and McKenny, above the junction of the Ouse and Derwent. The bush-rangers fired first upon their pursuers, but without effect. It was however promptly returned, and after some little resistance, &nbsp; &nbsp; Gregory, Brown, and McKenny were taken, (the latter severely wounded.) Cody was shot dead, as it is believed, by Constable Ayton, and Dunne escaped perfectly naked by swimming. The three men captured...

To the Public. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 31 March 1826
To the Public By reference to the report of the proceed- ings in the Supreme Court, it will be seen, that after six months delay I am now con- fined in this Gaol, for having printed and published the three articles of which I was found guilty upon the second ex-officio in- formation, in September last. I forbear to make any remarks upon the nature of the articles, for publishing which I am now suffering imprisonment ; they are before the Public, and every man can form his own judgment upon them. The difficulties which attend the publication of a Newspaper in the absence of the-publisher, will be at once understood. I throw myself upon the liberality of my countrymen, to excuse whatever errors or deficiencies may arise in consequence ; and I trust, that notwith - standing the anticipation of this event, con- tained in an article fiom Hobart Town, (the authorship of which is self evident), inserted in the Sydney Gazette last received here, that the .Free Press of this Island will not ...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1826. We were in hopes that we should have been enabled in this number of our Journal to have presented the Public with a full and comprehensive view of the Financial system of the Administration. We are un- able to do so. Another driblet of the ex- penditure has been produced, making the fifth. One entire month has passed over &nbsp; &nbsp; since the first publication of the Public Ac- counts (such as they are), and they are yet unfinished. How many more driblets are yet to come, remains to be seen. Such as they are, however, we are unwilling to al- low the Medway to depart without transmit- ting to our English Readers some few con- siderations upon what are before us. The disadvantages under which we labour in doing so, are, however, obvious. We know not what is yet to come, or the total amount of the expenditure. The manufacturer of these accounts refers us to what he calls an " Abstract of the General Account," not y...
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 April 1826
FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. The temporary "retirement of the Chief Justice, necessai ily gave rise to a change in some appointments ; and, it has been used as a fitting and a convenient opportunity for ex- tending it to"others. ; Mr. Justice Stephen on becoming acting Chief Justice, consistently enough, vacated his seat as Commissioner in the Court of Requests'; for, while occupy- ing the first judical oifice iii the Colony, it would not have been exactly appropriate for him to have given his attention to the small 1 matters of a minor Court. A successor to 'this' late office has been found; and, Dr. Douglass has been appointed to the Commis sionership of the Com t of Requests. This in- considerate arrangement, we cannot contem- plate but with sorrow, and amazement. Sor- row, at seeing the interests of the people thus sacrificed,-unintentionally so, no doubt; and amazement that an administration which has already shewn no slight degree of penetra tration, should have allowed itself to be b...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-I beg to call the particular attention of the Executive (as we are not allowed, in consequence of the opinion of the Chief Jus- tice Pedder, to have a Grand Jury, the same as in the sister Colony, to present nuisances and grievances), to the dceadful and disgrace- ful manner in which the creek (which runs through Hobart Town, and supplies the In- habitants with water), is continually pollu- ted by every kind of filth being emptied in- to it ; and, instead of a stream of pure wa- ter being a blessing to the Inhabitants, it has become, by neglect of those whose duty it is to preside over and prevent the health of the Inhabitants being injured from nuisances be- ing committed in the rivnlet, an affliction. The creek is now little better than a com- mon sewer, or reservoir of filth, in lieu of ä fine stream of water, which it was accusto- med to be ; and if I am rightly informed, the medical men attribute many causes of dysentery to the evils I ...
Attempt to Escape. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 April 1826
Attempt to escape. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; On Wednesday morning, about 9 o'clock, as Mr. Bisdee was writing in his bed-room, which is separated from the cell in which Brady, Bryant, Jeffries, & Goodwin are con- fined, he heard a scraping against the wall. He immediately suspected that the prisoners in the cell were endeavouring to escape, and on going round, he discovered Bryant in the fact, working with a large knife in the wall, in which a hole had been made large enough for a man to pass through. The men were immediately removed from the cell, and on searching them, another knife was found, of the description used by pig butchers. They are now strongly secured, and are chained together at night. They avowed their inten- tion to endeavour to escape. It will be im- proper to describe the locality of the spot; &nbsp; it is sufficient to say, that although lives would have been most likely lost in the at- tempt, yet there was consid...
