&u?t>r¿mger0* There have been several exaggerated re- ports circulated in the course of the1 present week, as to the numbers and proceedings of the diffeient parties of bush-rangars, now again infesting the Island. We have made the most accurate enquiries, the result of which is, that there are three parties ont. One in the neighbourhood ofXtmnceston, another near the Clyde, 'and a thrra in the district ab'out Oyster Bay.!

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 14,1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 14 July 1826
Colonial Times &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; HOBART TOWN: &nbsp; FRIDAY, JULY 14,1826. We have inserted a Letter from a Corres- pondent, on the subject of the unfortunate women who are confined in that abode of wretchedness, mis-called the Factory, which is well worth the attention of those in au- thority. It is a lamentable consideration, that when a female is unhappily consigned to transportation, she may say with the Italian Poet, that she leaves hope behind. Of all the &nbsp; evils which hypocricy and mock morality &nbsp; &nbsp; bring with them, and the catalogue is tole- rably extensive, by none are they more se- &nbsp; verely felt than by unhappy women, who having become subjected to the iron grasp of the Law, may also become subjected to the pitiless controul of a selfish and &nbsp; unfeeling race, who, setting at defiance the beautiful example exhibited to them by the great author of our religion, ...

Original Communication. &nbsp; To the Editor of the Colonial Times. &nbsp; &nbsp; SIR, - I am extremely happy to find, that the mis-management of the female prisoners has of late attracted a small portion of your &nbsp; attention; and as it is to be hoped you will &nbsp; follow up your exertions, I contribute my share of information, just obtained, in order that you might glean what you think fit from it, and give it a place in your truly va- luable paper, in the hope that as no redress &nbsp; can be obtained tor these people here, their complaints may through you reach His Ma- jesty's Government at home. The enclosure, commonly and erroneously called the Fac- tory, is a regular prison in point of space ana personal restraint. Women are sent in there, having no other place to send them to - without any crime having been com- mitted by them, and there to wait until they can be assigned to a service; others are sent &nbsp; in for...

Emperial Parliament. (From the Representative, March 18.) HOUSE OF COMMONS, MARCH 17. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 21 July 1826
imperial itavUametit» (From eke Representative, March l8.) HOUSE Ol'COMMONS, March 17. The House resolved itself into a Committee of hup ply. Mr. Horton moved the sum of AJU,342 for the expeuces of the Civil Esta- blishment of New 'South Wales. He ob- served« that the resources of this Colony were now almost adequate to meet the expendi- ture, and this would be the last vote which would be required. Mr. Hume was much gratified at what had fallen from the Honourable Gentleman, that there was a disposition to diminish the expen- diture, and he hoped that Government would persevere in that disposition. It was of the Greatest importance to make the Colonies ear as large a portion of these expences as their resource^ would permit, for so long as we continued to pay these expences, they would never try to take that honour out of our hands. It was a principle of human na- ture to act thus, and it would be foolish in th*e extreme to expect any thing else. If we withdrew the assistance we af...
Pribate Correspondence. Hobart Town, July 11,1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 21 July 1826
Private Correspondence. &nbsp; Hobart Town, July 11, 1826. Gentlemen,-I have furnished myself with copies of the letters addressed by Mr. READ and Mr. EVANS (Nos. 2 and 3) to the acting Colonial Secretary, for your information, respecting the privileges attached to my stores at the Wharf; and they must convince you, that the Government is pledged not to grant allotments to any private individual, between the scite of my stores and the sea. It was in consequence of this pledge, pub- licly given by the late Lieutenant Governor, that I incurred a great expense in surround- ing my store with a mound, and giving it a front towards the sea, as well as towards Sullivan's Cove. The additional outlay which &nbsp; &nbsp; was thus made, at the express desire of the Lieutenant Governor, though very consider- able, is but a trifle compared with the ul- timate injury which I must sustain, by grant- ing to another the eligible situation which was refused to me. and which th...

Laureutable Catastrophe. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 21 July 1826
Lamentable Catastrophe. We lament exceedingly to state, that the fine Colonial schooner Sally, Captain Crab- tree, belonging to Captain Wilson, of this port, which sailed from hence on the 24th ult., for Waterhouse Island, has been lost. There were eighteen passengers, including women and children, on board; fifteen of &nbsp; whom, we lament to add, are reported to have perished. They were principally me- chanics and their families, in the employ of the Horse Company, the management of whose affairs is placed in the hands of Mr B. B. Thomas, who charterted the Sally to convey these people and various agricultural implements to form their new establishment, opposite that Island. The vessel dragged her anchors, and struck on a reef of rocks, not laid down in any of the charts, near Water- house Island. Among the survivors are, Cap- tain Crabtree, Mr. Henry Widdowson, Mr. Kingdon Cleeve, and two sailors, who took to the long boat, and arrived safe at Laun- ceston. The names of ...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1826. In our last, we communicated to the Pub- lic, the information which we have so long anticipated, and which we have done our utmost to prepare the public mind to re- ceive as being inevitable, that the British Government has at length decided upon obliging the Colony of New South Wales to support its own Civil Establishment. We say the Colony of New South Wales, because, although the Government Official Gazette (which of course it must be supposed has the best information on these mattet s, but which unfortunately invariably on all subjects of importance, displays the most lamentable ig- norance) has announced in ^ a miserable, whining, crying, groaning article, that the Parliamentary vote which produced the Íiledge (rom Mr. Horton, that the Colony of sew ¡routh Wales should hencefoith maintain its own Civil Establishment, includes also this Colony of Vaii'Dicmen's Land. In our announcement of this event in our last, we limited our ...

Lamentable Shipwreck. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 28 July 1826
LAMENTABLE SHIPWRECK We last week briefly reported the loss of &nbsp; the Colonial schooner Sally, of this port, be- longing to Capt. W. WILSON. By letters since received from Launceston, it appears that she was lost, on the 30th ult., between Swanport and Waterhouse Island. The ves- &nbsp; sel, it appears, was wrecked within a short distance of the shore, as will appear from the following extract from a letter from one of the survivors :-- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; " I am very sorry to inform you of our sad misfortune. We have lost our vessel and 13 hands. I have lost my poor wife. I held her in my arms, on board the wreck, for five hours, while the sea was beating over us mountains high ; and, while I was myself al- most lifeless, she died in my arms. I then jumped overboard, and fortunately reached the shore, where I lay for some hours before I recovered. Ten of us were washed ashore, after being in the most perilous situation on the wreck from ...

Sydney News. By the Doncaster we have received Letters and Newspapers from Sydney to the 16th in- stant. Their contents are of considerable im- &nbsp; portance.
