Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 June 1826

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1826. We have on more than one occasion called the attention of our Readers to the system as at present established (and it appears per- manently so) in the Supreme Court of this Island. The great expense, enormous be- yond precedent, in any other part of the world, attendant upon the institution of le- gal proceedings here, is known to every man, and has been severely felt by many. When we say this is beyond " precedent," we are adopting language in the highest legal fash- ion, and referring to what is the governing principle of the Court. Of this we have already spoken. It was generally believed that the Chief Justice would have subjected the system of practise, the effects of which are so ruinous to every man who is unfortunate enough to be brought, either as plaintiff or defendant, within Its vortex, to some revision. This expectation was a reasonable one, because it is held out in the Act of Parliament, and it could hardly have been ...

Distillation, [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 June 1826

Distillation, iff. The King's Attorney-General GELLIBRAND, on the last trial of the Proprietor of the Co- lt niai Times, remarked that Mr. BENT had a disposition to writing articles for insertion upon the uecessity of brewing beer in the Colony, instead of seeiug so much political animadversions, in such high-flown lan- guage» published by the individual who undertook to perform those arduous duties of the Journal. It is natural, therefore, that a "plain man, with a common understanding" Ías Mr» GELLIBRAND described Mr. BENT, ds lis Counsel), should confine his ideas upon Subjects of ordinary local intelligence, when lie did not pretend to be gifted with that skill, which every person who conducts the political part of an Independent Newspaper ought to possess. Yet this does not prove, that Colofeial Brewing and Distillation are subjects unworthy public attention ;-and, in order to shew the Headers of this Paper, what his ideas are upon them, especially the latter, he has beeu thus ...

The New Bushrangers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 June 1826

The New Bush-rangers. We announced in our last the proceedings of the banditti which had newly arisen.- Since the robberies committed at the Eastern Marshes, they proceeded to the Penny-royal Creek, where they robbed Mr. SUTHERLAND, J. P. and Mr. RUFFEY, Settlers in that neigh-   bourhood. From thence they proceeded, and as we learn only six in number, to Mr. GAT- TENBY, who resides upon the same creek, nearer the Macquarie River ; and here we have to record an act of prompt determina- tion and gallantry, not more worthy of ex- ample by others, than of the highest encou- ragement from the Government. Mr. GAT- TENBY, jun. a very young man, was, with the exception of the females of the family, alone on the premises. He was at the door of the house-the gang halted, and called out they were soldiers. Mr. GATTENBY told them to stand, and put down their arms, and he would come to them. Instead of which one of them rose his musket, to level at him.   He immediatel...

(From the Morning Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 June 1826

(From the Morning Chronicle. ) The'entire body of the English Law exhi- bits, probably, the most unwieldly mass that the folly of six or eight centuries ever accu- mulated. A system less adapted to its end and more oppressive in its means never exist- ed ; through all its departments, among all its countless sub-divisions, there is not a sin- gle spot where the legislator and the philau-. trophist could lay hisnnger and say, ''Here, at least, we have always calculated to secure to men their mutual rights, at the least pos- sible expence, and with the smallest inconve- nience ; here wisdom seems to have devised the means, and justice to have been the end." Though the whole field be beset with weeds, there is no part more rank and luxu- riant in abuses than that which concerns'the transmission and settlement of landed pro- perty,-that division which is technically called the Law of Real Property ; the strange mixture of quaint factions, feudal maxims, modern decisions, and Acts of Par...

Colonial ®tttti0. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE id, 1826. p We have so often called the public atten- tion to the enormous expendituie of the pre- sent administration, that we aie almost un- able to continue our animadversions upon that important subject, even with fiesh ina tenais continually before us, M__mt a repe- tition nearly of the same w_W^0^¿he course of the last week, we undersHtod, ano- ther thousand pounds has been borrowed from the Commissariat ! It is incredible that "With the immense encreased expenditure since Colonel SORELL'S departure, Jess of the public money finds its way among the peo- ple, than when not a tenth-part of the sum now got rid of, in a manner which no man (not of the elect) can understand, passed thro' the hands of the Government. A general opinion has existed, that the greater the ex- penditure, the more the people must be ad- vantaged. This is not true, either in the ab- stract principle, or the practical fact, let us examine it a little, temperately ...

The Female Factorn. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 June 1826

The Female Factory. We regret to announce, that during the last week much insubordination has existed amongst the women confined in the Female Factory. On Saturday, in consequence of some alarming threats as to the Superinten- dent and his wife, (Mr. and Mrs. DRABBLE), Mr. HONE and Mr. BEDFORD, attended by Mr. KERBEY and other peace officers, insti- tuted an enquiry into the proceedings to which we have alluded ; the result of which was, that four of the most outrageous of these female offenders were sent to the gaol in handcuffs, where they are now confined in one of the cells. We are sorry to learn, that this example failed of producing any salutary effect ; for on Tuesday a most desperate at-   tempt at escape was made by these wretched women, who succeeded in removing several of the bricks from the wall of the building, adjoining Macquarie-street. On Mr. BEDFORD again visiting the factory, he was attacked in a most outrageous manner, and we believe subjected to some...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 June 1826

SYDNEY NEWS The ship Commpdore Hayes, Moncrieff, homeward bound, was totally burnt at   Calcutta in February last. She was on the eve of sailing; and not an article on board was   saved. Chief Justice FORBES was recovering from his indisposition. Mr. JAMES UNDERWOOD was about to   re-commence distillation from grain. The Sydney Gazette is no longer "Published   by Authority." Dr. ESPIE, R. N. who holds considerable property in this Island, arrived Surgeon   Superintendant of the Lady Rowena transport. She left Cork the 19th January.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 June 1826

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1826. There are few subjects of greater impor- tance, after those of the liberty of the people, than the condition of the circulating medium. Upon a wholesome state of which so much of the general, as well as the individual inter- ests, so very materially depends. Perhaps there can be no time so proper for offering to the Public the views which occur to us upon this important subject, as the present. When we find that the King's Ministers have, by an Order of Council (equivalent in its ope- rations to an Act of Parliament), decided that the circulating medium in all the British possessions shall be of one (sterling) denomi- nation ;-when we find, that the carrying this order into effect has been attended with some little difficulties in a Colony of very high consideration (the Cape of Good Hope) ;– when we observe, that the same measure is now put in operation by the Local Govern- ment here;–and when we find, that that most important and valuable Establ...

(From the Herald. ) Our readers no boubt recollect the case between Townsend and Askew in the Court of Chancery on the 20th inst., and Mr. Hart's anxious fears lest the ambidexwms faculty of fee-collecting, imputed to the bar, should be exposed; and if they have a proper sense of the importance of the profession of the law, in a free country like ours, or any re- membrance of the dignity which once attach- ed to the profession among us, they will contemplate such Gentlemen of the Bar persists in making the acceptance of fees the object of profession of bye-laws, even though the profession of bye-laws should not outrage decency and common sense, as violently as the rule asserted at York by Mr. Scarlett, they will very soon give place in public es- timation to persons whom they nave been accustomed to regard as by far their inferiors.

Mr. Dumphrey and Mr. Thomas. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 June 1826

Mr. Humphrey and Mr. Thomas.     A semi-official article is inserted in the last Government Gazette, stated to be "in refu-   tation" of the statements we have made on the subject of the conduct of Mr. Thomas, the Colonial Treasurer, in the late "deed be   done" affair. We expected of course that when the word "refutation" was adopted, something like proof of such would have been given. Let us examine it. It sets forth with referring to a part of the affair, which, although we were fully in possession of, delicacy prevented our even alluding to.   We mean the part taken by the " Head of the Government," in this most unparalleled transaction. The Government Gazette states,   that the Head of the Government called upon Mr. Thomas for an explanation of his con- duct. Now what was this conduct as re- spected the " Head of the Government," and what is the " explanation" afforded. Not one word is said that any e...
