Colonial [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 30 June 1826

«ftolontel SèîooL We have been favoured by the kindness of a commercial Gentleman with the important document which we subjoin, and which we earnestly recommend to the particular atten- tion of all persons concerned in a subject so important to our Colonial prosperity*: "Ki»?* Arms JW, March 8, 1826. " Messrs. Cockekell, Trail, and Co. Gentlemen,-The foreign xvools having felt the same revprse of fortune, in common with almost every article of produce in this mar- . ket, the wools from New South Wales alnd Van Diemen's Land must suffer in propor- tion. At present there is no wool from either Colony in the market. The liner the wool, the greater the depression in price : any New South Wales wools worth last year at this period 2s. 6d. and 3s. per 11)., would now command not more than from Is. 8d. to 2s. ; whilst the inferior wools from New South Wales and Van Diemen s Land, which sold from 8d. to Is. 6d. per lb. would bring from 8d. to Is. 2d. per ii).

Accident[?] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 30 June 1826

      Accidents, Offences, &c. DARiNG ROBBERY.- On the night of Thurs- dap week, the King's Stores were robbed of considerable property, belonging to some prisoners. Whether the depredators con- cealed themselves in the Stores, and so broke out, instead of breaking into them, is doubtful. It appears, however, that a large hole was made in the wall, and that the   bpoty was got clear off. Among the suffer- ers are, Dudfield and Marsden, who recently arrived. The former has lost two £100 Bank of England notes, and the latter much wearing apparel. Dudfield, it seemed, was not allowed to possess his money, &c. upon landing, in consequence of instructions to that effect from England. It is known, that when a trauspor-ship arrives, the prisoners who possess much money, are not suffered to have it in their own possession, but that the same is deposited in the King's Stores. This description of property is frequently placed...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 30 June 1826

wotkim-a-a---a HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1S2Ö. The copious extracts from the London Journals, which our Readers will find in the pieceding columns, will sufficiently exhibit the appalling state of affairs in which our be- loved native land is unhappily placed. The picture is as gloomy as can be well imagined. Even the King's Ministers avow that the coun- try was never in such a state of suffering since the revolution ! And the great misfor- tune is, that the evil of distress has not reached its acme. Every succeeding day produced fresh failures and fresh misfortunes. The great cause of this is attributed uncon tradictedly to the abominable frauds which have been practised upon the whole United Kingdom, from the very highest to the very lowest, by the detestable Joint Stock Com- panies ; whose basenesses exceed beyond comparison, the celebrated South Sea frauds of 1720. The mania with which the whole community (for it affected all classes) was afflicted, exceeds all belief; and w...

We refer our Y enders to it, as an ¡l lustiation of the value of a Free Press in a remote Colony. Ihe evils of the system, the abuses of patronage, are pointed out to the highest local authority ; not in the timid language of dark and distant insinuation, but inJ;h£open, manly and firm, yet temperate tbnêTatonce becoming the subject of a free 'anti enlightened nation, and the character of an English Gentleman ; there, is no vulgar flippancy^ no coarse raillery, but a plain statement of what may be piesumed to be facts from the detailed manner in which they are laid before the Public.

lJO*tf>criyt. I Just as our Paper was going to Press, we received our files of English Papers (the latest in the Colony we believe), down to the 17th March. In " The Representative," a neir London Morning Paper, of that date, we find that most alarming reports were circu- lated respecting the KING. The anxiety which they excited was in a great measure removed by the publication of a bulletin, signed by the King's three Physicians, stating that His Majesty had been bled on the two preceding days with much relief, and that the fever and symptoms of inflammation had abated. The DUKE or YORK left town for Windsor on the 16th tb attend his Royal Bro- ther, the Ministers quitted the House of Com- mons on the night of the 17th, before the conclusion of public business. The London Papers of the 11th March and following days, gave considerable ex- tracts from the files of The Colonial Timet¿ forwarded to England by the Cumberland. Three per Cent.

(From the ¡Courier^ Jan. 24.) ? SHERIFF'S COURT, JANUARY 22, 183« LIBEL. ' - * SKINNER V. KNIGHT AND LACEY. . This Was an enquiry to assess the damages sustained by the plaintiff by the publication of a libel by the defendants. Mr. Serjeant VAUGHAN stated the case.». The libel was published in a periodical work called The Medical Adviser, which was stated to be edited by Dr. Burnett. There was no such man living as Dr. Burnett, whose name'' was given in the Jf(dical'Adviser as the Edi- tor ; pains had been taken to find him out. The use of this name was mere quackery and imposture. Several witnesses having proved the fact of the publication, Mr. CHARLES PHILLIPS addressed the Jury for the defendants, w ho were, he said, re« spectable young men, who had commenced the publication of the " Medical Adviser,'' in the confidence that the information it coa. tained would be correct, and that it would put down the quacks, whose names they ¡¡\[ saw chalked on walls, by whom the ignorant were...

The liberal manner in which the friends of the Liberty of the i'ress have come forward on the present occasion of ther'-fine and im- prisonment of the Pioprietor of this Journal, induces us to submit to the consideration or the Public, some few remarks, in addition to those which we have moie than once offered to, their notice, of the very peculiar circumstan- ces, different certainly to any which *' pre- cedent" can afford, attendant upon the two prosecutions to which he has been subjected, and the sentences he has received. He has already declared, and it is indeed well known, that he never composed, or even sug- gested one syllable of the alleged libellous matter. The Government witness against him, was the well-know n author ("with the exception of the " nnn-detcripl job" ai tide, which the Chief Justice PEDDER more than once admitted was not in his judgment a li- bel) of the whole thereof.

jkkûw ïlobUvp. "W îi^î<a vWe, lament to learn ythat a fresh, tbodyi of ¡bush-rnngers has appealed on the other side,, the Island,- and,has commenced operations; 'with a most daring) robbery. It appears, that on Tuesday evening, the house of Mr. A. WALKER, five miles from Launceston, was attacked by nine (some accounts say eleven) well armed men. Their faces were rather painted than blackened, as more than one colour had been used in that operation. They robbed the house of every thing va- luable, including jewels and plate, the pi o perty ot Colonel BALFOUR, to a< very consi- derable amount. They acted quite at their leisure, and appealed to be perfectly at ease, and their (onduct was so systematic as to afford no clue to detection. This is a really lamentable state ot things. Before the large Military foi ce now here was ob- tained, we were told that on such ai riving, no such occurrences as these could take place. ,We have now a whole Regiment; butas far as t...

It will also be recollect- ed that, before the Court intimated their opi- nion on the nature of the judgment, they offered to allow the defendant to plead " not guilty," on his consenting to pay the prose- cutor's costs, but this offer was rejected ; and when, after the opinion was given, the same indulgence was asked, the Court re- fused to grant it.
