TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 28 July 1826
TO THE PUBLIC. In submitting to the Public the subjoined Correspondence, few. observations are neces- sary. The falsehoods and slanders, contain- ed in an article inserted in the Government Gazette, signed "Expositor," were of a &nbsp; nature which rendered it imperative upon Mr. MURRAY to adopt legal proceedings against Messrs. Ross and HOWE,the publish- ers. The forms of the Supreme Court pre- vented the action being brought to issue be- fore the present Term. It will be seen by the subjoined letter of the Solicitor-General STEPHEN (who was professionally employed by the defendants), what were his sentiments upon the subject. It is due to him to say, they are candid and manly. Mr. MURRAY, who wished for no abject concession, for nothing but what one Gentleman ought to say to another under similar circumstances, is satisfied with Dr. Ross's expressions of the regret which he felt for having admitted in- to the Government Gazette, an article such as he himself now considers ...

Original Communications. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 28 July 1826
Original Communications. &nbsp; MR. EDITOR.—I did, as you stated in your last Paper, address His Honor the Chief Judge, on the subject of the Law charges; and had I not been cut short in the midst of my oration, owing to the informality of my mode of proceeding, I should have said much more on the subject. Now, I beg to assure you, Mr. Editor, that I never made a speech before, and perhaps never shall again. For I confess myself much hurt at seeing my first oration, after my dis- appointment in Court mutilated, as it has been by Dr. Ross. Indeed, I think no man would be pleased to know that another had adopted the offspring of his genuis to mur- der it. Will you therefore oblige me by in- serting in your next, what I really did say, and what I intended to have said, which I &nbsp; will faithfully communicate to you, for it was all cut and dry for the occasion. In- deed, I had been spouting in re-hearsal to the gaol wall two hours nearly before I en- tered the Court-h...
Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 28, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 28 July 1826
Colonial rimes. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 28, 1826. We have again to reply to another death song of the Government Gazette. Another of those whining, crying, pitiable articles, which are so miserably contemptible, that was not the subject of itself too important to be passed by in silence, we should not waste the valuable time of the Public in ever noticing it. The Government Gazette wri- ters are in their last agonies! It is really grievous to witness the writhings and the contortions ofthat Journal, under the afflict- ing expectation of that greatest of political blessings, A FREE AND REPRESENTATIVE GO- VERNMENT! Neaily three columnsare occupied in the most abject supplications to the King's Ministers to spare the places, and pensions, and salaries ! In order to effect which, these groveling writers, who, when they left their native shores, appear to have left behind them every particle of the composition of Englishmen, would sacrifice, nay, invoke the Bi¡tish Government, to refus...
Supreme Court. Patterson v. Lord. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 28 July 1826
Supreme Court &nbsp; Patterson v. Lord. This cause, which certainly, was of a na- ture as impoitant in'many considerations as any which has ever come before the Court, was heard this day, when at midnight a ver- dict was deliveied for the defendant. Mr. Solicitoi-Geneial STEPIILN was for the plain tilf, and Mi. GH.MUU.AND was for the defen- dant. The subject matter of the action was lelative to two promissory notes, for £ 150 and ¿.'75. which our Readeis may îetoliect, Mr, LORD advertised some time ago, that he had endoised withqut consideration, at the request of Mr. Assistant Commissaiy-G.en.eral Moopn:. Mi. Stephen, in his opening, stated it was a case of character; and his assertions appealed in the course of the proceedings to be tully borne out. Some extraordinary de- tails were elicited in the course ol the trial, which we shall report fally in our next.

[?]redful Event. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 August 1826
Dreadful Event. By letters, which left Launceston on Tues- &nbsp; day, it appears that the wife of Mr. W. F. BAKER, a very respectable settler residing on the Lake Plains, died in child-bed. The mid- wife, it seems, was rather intoxicated; and the death of Mrs. Baker is in some measure attributed in consequence, at least such is the report in the neighbourhood. The unfortu- nate husband took the death of his wife so much to heart, that, on the Friday following, he cut his throat, whereby in five minutes af- terwards, he became a lifeless corpse alongside his deceased partner; leaving four young or- phan children (including the new-born babe), to lament their loss. The little infant is likely to live. &nbsp;
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 August 1826
ENGLISH NEWS. The statements made by Mr. Wilmot Hor- ton, respecting the emigrations to Canada, are calculated to give birth to the most pain- ful reflections. Hitherto the strength of a country was believed to consist in its popula- tion ; and the opinion was at once founded &nbsp; on reason, dear to philanthropy, and sanc- tioned by religion; but now it is discovered that we shall be the stronger for banishing a portion of our fellow-creatures, who have as great a right to live on and from their native and, as the proudest he that treads its sur- face. The cost incurred in conveying Irish- men and their families to Canada amounted to £22 a head ; and Mr. Maccullock being &nbsp; consulted on the subject, gave it as his opi- nion that £80 would be judiciously laid out in conveying a man, his wife, and two chil- dren to North America, on the horrible con- dition "that measures were taken to pre- &nbsp; vent the gap they left from being filled up again."—What w...
SUPREME COURT, JULY 26. Patterson v. Lord. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 August 1826
SUPREME COURT, JULY 26. Patterson v. Lord. This was an action brought by plaintiff, a Solicitor Of this Town, against Mr. D. LORD, a Gentleman of much respectability, to re- cover the sum of £225, as the endorser of two promissory notes, of a Mr. Richard Down- ward, a Settler, at Pitt Water. Mr. Solici- tor-General STEPHEN was for the plaintiff, Mr. Gellibrand for the defendant. Mr Ste- phen, in stating the case, observed, that it was one of character. The plaintiff had re- &nbsp; ceived the bills in payment for cattle sold by him to Captain Wood, a Magistrate residing at the Clyde, who had received them from Mr. Assistant Commissary General Moodie, who had received them from the defendant. The bills were dated so long back as Sep- tember and October 1823. Mr. Downward having occasion to borrow money, had ap plied to Mr. Moodie to accommodate him, who had done so; and these bills had been endorsed by Mr. Lord, at the request of Mr. Downward, and Mr. Moodie had kept them thus...

HOBART TOWN: &nbsp; FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1826. &nbsp; The Important decision to which His Ma- &nbsp; jesty's Ministers have come, as respects the future financial arrangements of these Colo- nies, and the consequent alteration which will of course result therefrom in its political constitution, give rise to the most serious con- siderations. We have already submitted to the Public, the great advantages which must follow, not more from our restoration to the privileges of our birth-right, than from the moral effects which invariably follow their possession. In giving birth to these proud sen- sations which invariably exist in the bosoms of men, whose political freedom is unre- strained of all forms of Government, none have been found by experience to be so well calculated for the happiness of man, as the glorious constitution of our beloved native land. Englishmen, from their earliest youth, are taught to venerate the institutions of their ancestors, on which the...
The [?]= [?]angers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 August 1826
The Bush-rangers On Monday or Tuesday last, four men, well armed, attacked the house of Mr. James &nbsp; Robertson, a Settler, on the South Esk.— They took that Gentleman and his servants &nbsp; as prisoners, while they plundered the house. in the mean-time, Mr. W. Gray, a neighbor- ing Settler, arrived, who was also secured and made a prisoner. They then conveyed these &nbsp; persons and their plunder up the Esk, to Mr. Corney's hut. They here procured a boat, with which they conveyed their booty across &nbsp; the river; and afterwards took away Mr. Gray's mare (which swam over), for the pur- pose of carrying the property off. While the &nbsp; bush-rangers were outside the hut, Mr. Ro- bertson told his fellow prisoners, that they had omitted taking a pen-knife, which was then in one of his pockets ; and that, if Mr. Gray (one of whose hands was loosened) would take it out, he would cut the hand kerchief with which they were bound, this being ...

In this cauhe a most important decision has beer) come to, and which has*produced'uni- versal satisfaction ; the whole of the London Press uniting in the same sentiment. It was a case wherein a Gentleman attending at a sale and purchasing, supposing that he was opposed by bona fide bidders, afterwards discovered that these were " puffers (I that is to say. persons not bidding bona fide, but merely to enhance the prLe of the property then under me harnmer. The facts were these : Mr. Crowther (a Gentleman holding a legal appointment under the City of Lon- don}, the plaintiff, was at Aldridge's Repo- sitory, in St. MartinVIane, when a horse wa* put up for which he bid ; other bidders opposed him, and he discovered after having taken away the horse and paid for him, that the groom of the defendant, whose horse was on sale, was one of these.

Paper Currency. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826
pzytv ifrurcenc». So mqch hfls been said lately on this sob-1 ject, that it appears to be fairly exhausted. That a metallic is the best,of every possible1 circulating medium, there, can be no doubt. But, in the absence of such, the great' ob? ject is to keep up that circulating medium, that the Public may suffer no inconvenience from a deficiency "thereof.
