State Prosecutions. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 April 1826

; ." . State tfrogaution*. We have in another place inserted one lead- ing article from the Morning Chronicle. We however insert another,-in the former, the former Lord Chancellor, and the Judges were attacked in plain language. Here again in language as plain, is the Irish Attorney General (Mr. Plunket) told that he is the " laughing-stock of friend and foe," and he cannot venture to show his face in broad day- light. This is something worse than the"«ow descript job,"and yet no ex-elficio information nas been filed. And if it had, what would an English Jury have said to it i " The'prosecution of Mr. O'connell never could have been successful under any cir- cumstances ; but to use an Irise figure, of rhe» toric,.it has ended before it began. To im- agine that any jury in their senses could have convicted a fellow-subject on such a charge, was highly preposterous and foolish ; but the trial was more uncremoniously disposed of than the worst enemies of Mr. Plunkett could have desired...

Launceston News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 April 1826

Launceston News. The John Shore put into George Town last week, on her way to Sydney, laden with flour and salted meat, procured at Batavia. Another large vessel, with a similar cargo, is on the passage. Arrived on Tuesday, the sloops James and Darling, with general cargoes. The depression of the times is severely felt at Launceston. Buildings, which were for- merly so rapidly encreasing, now stand still. Mercantile pursuits also are rapidly declining. Mr. Stephen has countermanded his notice of trial to Mr. Bent for to-morrow, renewing it for Tuesday next. The Public is aware that it is upon the first Information upon which Mr. Bent was tried in September last, for pub- lishing two articles in the September prece- ding, the writer of which was called to give evidence against Mr. Bent, for publishing his own productions. Yesterday the three following prisoners were put on their trial, for a robbery at Mr. Hance's-M'Kenna, Brown, and Gregory. They were found Guilty. We do not think i...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 April 1826

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1826.               The situation in which Mr. BENT is unfor- tunately placed, has rendered it necessary that another responsibility should be afford- ed to this Journal. By reference to the   imprint, it will be seen, that such has taken place. The alteration, however, being   merely as to responsibility, the "COLONIAL   TIMES" will be conducted as heretofore, with the same inviolable adherence to the motto - the same scrupulous attention to the rights of individuals - the same fearless hos- tility to public abuses - the same rigid obser- vance to the sanctity of private life - and the same open and declared enmity to public   wrongs! In short, upon those independent   principles, which have obtained for us such gratifying proofs of public favour and patro- nage, and w...

The Bushcangers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 April 1826

The Bushrangers.   We notified in our last, the almost total extinction of this lawless bandetti. Cody and Dunne are yet at large. They have been seen in the neighbourhood of the Cross   Marsh, and we understand very narrowly escaped capture. The time is now an ¡ved, when we can without impropriety announce, that to measures arranged solely by Mr. Humphrey, our worthy Superintendant of Police, is the Public indebted for the recent apprehensiou not only of Brady and the rest, but for the destruction of Murphy, Wil- liams, and Bird, and the capture of Tilly. It will excite some surprise, when we state, that all this has been done by two men ! both prisoners of the Crown. We do not consider it proper at present (for obvious reason) to make public their names. Nor should we have stated even thus much, until the appre- hension of the two wretched men yet remain- ing at large, were it not that Bird's affair oc-   casioned disclosures, which prevent t...

The Colonial Chaplain. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 14 April 1826

Stye ttolontól <íí)ApíiTín. We have received the following Letter from a Gentleman of respectability at Laun- ceston. We insert it most cheerfully ; be- cause we were convinced, that some error existed in the " Abstract" of the Public Ac Counts, where so large a sum as £57 17s. was charged for toragtí money, for " the Colonial Chaplain." We of course considered the Senior Assistant to be meant hereby, because of course this charge could not have been incurred for Mr.'Bedford, for reasons too obvious to mention. Independent of which, he could not have been mentioned as the Co- lonial Chaplain over the head of his senior in rank. 'We publish however the,explanation of Mr. Youl's Launceston friend, and the Public will draw its own conclusion as to the rest :- / " In your remarks on the Public Ac- counts, I observe you state, that £57 17s. appears charged for forage money, for Mr. Youl.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 14 April 1826

Colonial rtu*r ö. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1826. The impression upon the public mind, aris- ing from the disclosures made in the course of the last few days, has been of a nature which we cannot attempt to describe. We know not with whom the practices which have been brought to light have originated. But that they are disgraceful to all concerned in them,no man wilfbe found impudent enough, or corrupt enough to deny. Before we pro- ceed to the additional disclosures which we alluded to in our last, let us look a little at what has already taken place. It appears, that Mr. Humphrey was induced to under- take the employment of sitting upon the re- cent Secret Inquiry against the Attorney General, the proceedings of which will not speedily be forgotten. Mr. Jocelyn Tho- mas, a Member of the Executive Council, and Colonial Treasurer, was also appointed to sit with Mr. Humphrey upon that memorable occasion. And it will be seen,by reference to the Attorney-General's pamphlet, page 2...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 14 April 1826

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-I was present at the trial of the cause of Mr. Murray against Mr. Stephen, in the Supreme Court, on Wednesday. Mr. Stephen it appears had called Mr. Murray a convict, and had stated, that having been such, he was unfit for society. Now I wish to state, through the medium of' your Independent Journal, a few well known facts. Mr Chris- topher Atkinson was convicted of a most se- rious offence, he stood three times in the pil- lory, and was subjected to other serious de f;radations, yet he sat in five successive Par- laments afterwards, for the Borough of Hey- don in Yorkshire, and was as much in>$ociéty as any man iu the world. Colonel Cawthorne was convicted of a most serious offence ; he was expelled the House of Commons, he was sentenced to a degrading punishment, and he is now Member for Lancaster ; and in the public Newspapers it will be seen that on the 11th of June last, he was Vice-Presi dentj the Duke of York in the Chair, at a pub...

New Zealand Flax. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 14 April 1826

jtffüj £ta\avlfhdFlax.' Mr.-Editor,-Allow me the pleasure, through your Independent Paper, to broach a few'ideas on a subject, which to me appears of value, and to have been overlooked by many of my fellow- Colonists. 1 allude to the cultivation of New Zealand Flax, particu«v larly as an export, and to which the soil and climate of this Island is most favourable. As it abounds with marshes, rich moist land{\ and extensive lagoons, at present so value- less. The New Zealand Flax is a bulbous plant, much resembling the flag so com- mon by our water courses, and requires only annually to be dug up; the roots di- vided with the spade, and separately trans- planted. It grows commonly to the height /of six feet and upwards, and the large wide spreading leaves, full four feet long ; filled with fine white sinews, containing the flax, being acknowledged the best iii the known, world for Naval purposes. For the satisfac- tion of the curious, I enclose you a sample ; and, for the information ...

In a Cause which has excited such active Exertions from many Individuals, His Excel-   lency feels a Difficulty in expressing His Thanks for the Services rendered by any Per- sons in particular ; and whilst therefore, no individual Exertions will be overlooked or forgotten, he desires to convey, in general Terms, to the Inhabitants of the Colony, the high and just Sense he entertains of the co- operative Measures which have now so benefi-   cially terminated.
