Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 May 1826

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1826. \ The extraordinary system of Government to which this Colony is now subjected^ can- not but excite the most serious considera- tions in the mind of every thinking man. It is perhaps of the most whimsical description (for " von-deso ipi" although in every day's use at'home, is a proscribed teim heie), that . can be well imagined. We stated in our last, that we should this week submit to the Public, some observations thereon. We now rpdeem our promise. Befóte we piocëed to submit to the Public the -view whit h appears to us to be the accuiate one, of the real form of Government to which Englishmen are here subjected, (we mean in refeieiiGe to the two Councils:), it will be peihaps contentent to go back a little ; to look at the system which . lately prevailed. This Colony was oiigi nally formed as a Dependency upon the elder one of New South Wales. Its Government was'a mer« off-set of the great tiee from which it icceived succo'ir and support. Up to...

Supreme Court. MONDAY, MAY 22. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 May 1826

Supreme Court, Monday, May 22. /\ This day, Mr. Bent was brought up to re- ceive judgment as mentioned in our last. Mr. Gellibrand, as Counsel for the Defen- dant, addressed the Court at considerable length. The Learned Gentleman produced a number of authorities in support of his ar- gument, that printing and publishing were in law separate acts ; and that the latter was by no means a necessary consequence of the former. The Chief Justice Pedder interrupted Mr. Gellibrand, by referring to a particular case, which, with certain others which HU Honor mentioned, had convinced him of the accuracy of his charge to the Jury ; that printing and publishing weie inseparable. Mr. Gellibrand then stated, that as His Honor's mind appeared to be made up on the subject, it was unnecessary for bim further to occupy the time of the Court. Mr. Attorney-General Hone addressed the Court shortly, in support of the conviction. The Chief Justice:-I am very glad that this objection has been raised, becaus...

FROM THE AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 June 1826

jtfROtf THE A VSTRJLIAX. We have great reason to congratulate our- selves on the success we have had in ex . posing the deceptions of the Australian Agri- cultural Company. Every one of their pro- ceedings, whttb have come into public no- tice, through our means, has created converts io our opinions from among the credulous who ventured to predict that such a Compa- ny might prove at some time, or some way ¡or other serviceable to the Colony, or who had the confidence to hope, that those who were instrumental to their Incorporation, «ould possibly medidate any project what- ever disinterestedly, or rather without^ the most selfish, onscrupuloûsly-selfish d«signs. The Fi,vn, offered to our Reader-, this day, -containing as it does an exposition, or pre 4endcd exposition of the intentions of the Company, in obtaining a Charter of Incorpo- ration, forms a fine contrast to their actual proceedings, and affords positive testimony of the manouvres that have been piactised, io throjwr the ...

Upper Canada. (From the Morning Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 June 1826

Olppet; «ranatùu (From the Morning Chronicle.) Quebec and Montreal Papers to the 1st of May have been received. The letters from Upper Canada state, that the Legislature of that Province had been prorogued on the 13th April, after a turbulent Session, in which little good had been effected. The estimate of the supplies has been reduced from ^6000 to £3800, and the Legislative Council, asto- nished at these reductions, requested a con- ference, which had no effect, so that the Bill was thrown out in the Upper House. The follow ing is an extract from the Speech of the Lieutenant Governor, on proroguing the Legislature, which was firm and tempe- rate:- - T it i regret to perceive that your Session has terminated without affording to the Go- vernment the means of carrying on the pub- lic service during the present year. So long as I continue to confine the charges of the administration of the Civil Government as rigidly as the service would permit, to that scale which I found establishe...

W<» now proceed tothe other branch, improperly, as we conceive, deno- minated1« the Legislative Council, in con si" deiing this subject, it is necessary to took a little at the Act of l arliamentby which, and by which alone, the people of this Colony are restricted fiom any ot the privileges of their birth-right.

Van Diemen's Land Company. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 June 1826

Vm l&iemen'* Uàntr (Company Mr. CURR has returned from his expedition to the interior. We understand he penetrated as far as the Western River or thereabouts. A certain air of mystery is thrown over these late movements. 'Whether the little pro- gress made, or other circumstances, occasion this, we kuow not. But we are convinced Mr. CURR has seen nothing which numberless stock-keepers have not seen before him. To all enquiries of the result of his travels, the worthy Gentleman replies that such will be known in due time ! Now, how exceedingly childish is all this;a and how wholly incon- sistent with the high sounding professions held out in the Prospectus of the Company, that their principal object, was the good of the Colony. If so, why'all this mystery? Why not proclaim to all enquiries, what after all every body knows, for we are convinced Mr. CURR has not penetrated one yard be Íond where many others have been before im. It is our intention next week to enter very fully ...

I ¿Ht\ $ump$w|) ann fHr.Ofjoma*. Woolmers, Lake River, Juuc^ 5,1826.: . SiB,~In the Coloñikl Time» of the 2d in- stant, you have stated, ** we have authority to say, that Mr.. HAMILTON proposed the ap- pointment of a third person as umpire, to which Mr. ARCHER objected, as being un- necessary ;" and again, " that the interrup- tion to further proceedings evidently origin- ated with Mr. THOMAS and Mr. ARCHER." In contradiction to the above, I have only to observe, that I did not object- to the ap. pointment of an umpire, nor did auy inter- ruption to further proceedings originate or exist on my part ; therefore whoever has au- thorised you to make such a statement, has done so either from ignorance of the circum- stances of the case, or from a wilful misre- presentation of the facts.-Requesting you will publish this letter in your next number, I remain, Sir, your obedient servant.

Supreme Court. MR. FARQUHARSON. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 June 1826

Supreme Court.   MR. FARQUHARSON. This unhappy Gentleman was, on Friday last, after a patient and most impartial trial of five days, found Guilty. We have a very full   report of his trial, but the detail is of little im- portance. The plain facts were as follow:- It appears that Mr. FARQUARSON had a flock of sheep in his charge upon the thirds, the pro- perty of Mr. ANDERSON, of Sandy Bay. A num-   ber of these having been missing in April last, Mr. FARQUHARSON gave Mr. ANDERSON a writ- ten undertaking to return them upon a certain day in the last month. In the mean-time Mr. BENJAMIN JONES, whose flocks depas- tured near Jericho, missed 400 sheep. Drum- mond, the Constable, received information, that these sheep had been driven to Mr. F.'s neighbourhood. A warrant was obtained from Captain WOOD, J. P. at the Clyde; and   Drummond, with two of Captain W.'s men, went in search of them. At a short distance from Mr. F.'s house, in a v...

Bush ranging. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 June 1826

We have to announce with the sincerest regret, that this crime of such serious im- port in this Colony, which we had hoped the late dreadful examples had entirely put down, appears to have commenced a fresh existence. We mentioned in our last, that a formidable banditti had robbed Mr. BARR'S hut at the Clyde. Mr. WALKINSHAW'S hut, near the Coal River, was robbed the next day, whether by the same, or by another gang is of course unknown; and we under- stand that a banditti of eleven by some ac- counts, by others seventeen, well armed men, made their appearance last week in the centre of the Island, near the Eastern   Marshes ; and on Tuesday last they robbed Mr. G. C. CLARK'S hut, which we believe is somewhere in that neighbourhood; from whence they proceeded to Mr. YORK'S, which they also robbed. No act of personal violence has been yet committed. The ban- ditti being, as is stated, under the guidance of a tall man, whose orders are implicitly obeyed, and who acts (as f...

European Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 June 1826

îSuropran Doutta». We have bpen favoured by the kindness of a friend with the perusal of the New Times of the 6th January. We make the follow- ing mo^t important extract therefiom. It is a translation of an article from the Constitu- tionnel; the leading French Independent Journal. For Opposition, as that term is un- derstood by Englishmen, there is none per- mitted in any ot the Nations of the Holy Al- liance. We shall in our next offer to our j Readers some observations upon the present political state of Europe, as far as we at pre- sent possess the means of information : " Attentive observers are persuaded that thestruggle is already begun between the two preponderating Powers of Euiopp, and that if they abstain from actual hostilities, it is because the place of combat is not yet cho- sen. No doubt, however, can arise, but that i England and Russia are already morally at war, as the acts of the two Cabinets suffi ciently prove ; for Mr. Canning cannot speak in favour of civil a...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] " i On the Typhaid Character and Treatment of the Bilious Fever of this Colony*. Among the various topics which the me- dium of a Newspaper conveys to the Public, those of Medicine and Surgery seem in agreat degree, if not altogether, overlooked; and it is certainly the more surprising, since they are subjects which come home to the bosom of every family. In a Colony of so recent a formation as this, it can scarcely be supposed that the Faculty should have succeeded in the formation of a Society in which cases either very ciitical or of very rare occuirenee could be intro- duced and discoursed upon, and whence the Practitioner might be enabled to adduce in- ferences to guide him in his future practice. This is the benefit of that Society establish- ed in London, termed the " Loudon Medi- cal Society," (of which I have the honour to be a Fellow), formed and supported by a be- nevolent giant, and an extensive Medical Library,bequestedby the late highly esteem- ed Dr. ...
