Bush=rangers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826

BUSH=RANGERS On Sunday last, information was given at the Police-office, by Mr. Manrow, Government Superintendent of Birch's Bay, that the even- ing before, in his absence, his hut was robbed of five stand of arms, blankets, provisions, &c by three bushrangers, who pressed one of his men, and also one of a neighbouring Settler. The Superintendent of Police   immediately dispatched three constables with Mr. Manrow, by water; and William Harvey and other Constables by land, with directions to call upon District Constables Anderson   and Folly, on the road, to join them.   At the latter's, they heard that on Sunday night, a farther robbery had been committed near Brown's River (20 miles nearer to Hobart Town than Birch's Bay), at the house of   Mr. Holdship; from which they took four or five guns, a brace of pistols, a watch, &c, and pressed a servant to carry them. The latter, however, they soon after sent back with t...

Van Siemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826

Van Diemen's Land     We make the following extracts from an English Paper, respecting this Colony : " Van Diemen's Land, distant as it is from England, recent as it is in existence, is by no means the least important of the possessions of the Crown. Though it is only a few years since transport-ships first commenced land- ing prisoners in Tasmania, not only are the   comforts, but many of the elegancies, and a variety of the luxuries of life, enjoyed by the Colonists- This interesting and beautiful Island was first settled in 1803 and has re- ceived so great an influx of free settlers as well as prisoners, that it has now a popula- tion of 12,000 souls. [With the exception of only one vessel, the Indefatigable, which arrived in 1812, no vessel, either with set- tlers or prisoners arrived here direct from England, until nearly two years after Lieute- nant Governor Sorell had assumed the reins of Government, so that little or no progress was mad...

a$9&^»am^ Siirke Leone.-The enormous expea.ce of this grave of Englishmen has been, brought before fa.rVlain.ent, vffth all the fovce of the ^dependant part of both Houses*. Mt. Can- ning, \n the course of the debate si" the IjOth pf March, with thqt candour wb'{ch so emi- nently distinguishes him, ¡admitted that its continuance waa to be attributed merely to t> certain party, whose influence is now al- most extinct, but which was at one time -while headed by Mr. Wilbeu*ouce, extreme- ly powerful. Mr. Canning declared that the subject was now under the most serious investigation by Ministers, unshackled by any influence, apd to be decided upon consi- derations of national policy alone. The fol- lowing lamentable detail is authentic ; and yet in a country such, as Sierre Leone, where the European Constitution is not worth six days purchase, Millions of pounds and thou- sands of human beings, are to be sacrificed to hypocritical cant, and Methpdistical whine. Why do nat the...

Colonial Distillation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826

Colonial Distillation. Colonel Sorell, in a letter to Lord Ba- thurst, says, that " in distillation the Colo- nial Legislature possesses the power of guard- ing the Public against exaction, by relaxing a duty upon imported spirits, which was fixed at an extremely high rate of protection to the Colonial distiller, and which might from time to time be regulated or equalized, so as to accommodate this protection to the comparative prices of the home and imported article, the Colony being secured against any worse state than that of being dependant, as it now is upon importation." Again, this public character says,-''The superiority of   the climate of Van Diemen's Land over that of New South Wales, for the cultivation of grain, and for all the processes of fermenta- tion, leaves no doubt as to the advantages which the former must have (and which I cannot estimate at less than twenty per cent.)   in distillation and brewing, which will secure to it the growth a...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. (From the Australian, June 24.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826

SYDNEY EXTRACTS (From the Australian, June 24) It is in tHe contemplation of " the Author-   ties" of the Colony to entoice the Law of For- feiture in the case of condemned criminals, and of persons convicted of felony, or of such offences as expose their property to seizure in the name ot the King. This Law, in mo-   dern times in England, has been been very rarely carried into effect ; and seldom resort- ed to, unless under peculiar circumstances.   It may seem hard to puiush the relatives of an offender by seizing his property on con- viction ; their sufferings are usually great enough without being reduced to a state of starvation. It is, however, the Law of the Land ; it is intended to repress crime by ren- dering the penalties the more severe, and we are much inclined to to belief that it would have a salutary effect, if put in force in this Colony. Some men might pause betöre they committed an offence which would not only, if they were d...

Private Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826

Private Correspondence In one of the newspapers that I had from Scotland by the last conveyance, there are extracts from a book entitled " The Spirit of the Age ; or, Contemporary Portraits," sup- posed to have been' written by Hazlett, an     astonishing writer. He is at once rich, strong, and profound, 'whose delineation ol charac-   ter is always striking. In his delineation of the character of Sir Walter Scott, he finishes it by dipping his brush into some wattle or mimosa extract from our adopted country, in order to give an expression to the whole. He says, that Sir Walter has a mind " that broods over antiquity—scorning the present —he is a prophesier of things past. The old world is to him a crowded map ; the new one a dull hateful blank. He dotes on well au- thenticated superstitions; he shudders at the shaddow of innovation. His retentiveness of memory, his accumulated weight of inter- ested prejudice or romantic association has &...

Colonial Tomes. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY AUGUST 11, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 August 1826

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:     FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1826. In a change, so important to a public Jour-   nal, and so interesting to its supporters, as that of-the retirement of a late Editor, we are aware that expectation will be keenly alive, and curiosity on its tip-toe for the de- velopement of what is to follow. On the one side, it will be concluded, that the vacated Editorship cannot be filled up to support the Independence of the Journal, and hence that in future it will disappoint the supporters of the Freedom of the Press. On the other Side, it will be supposed, that the change is the result of a two-fold conviction, viz. that a Journal-cannot maintain its Independence   in a small community, and that the Proprie- tor of the Colonial Times, subdued by suffer- ings, for matter which under past Editorship has been fouud libellous, had better prefer his pecuniary interest to the character and reputation of the Paper. In both vi...

Captain Jeffreys. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 August 1826

Captain Jeffreys As we sometime since promised to take notice of, and if possible wipe away the ca- lumnies which we think have been so unjust- ly heaped On the head of our deceased fellow Colonist, Captain Jeffreys, R. N., we think we shall not be doing' an unacceptable ser- vice to our Readers in calling their attention to the following remarks : When the subject of this article arrived in these Colonies, he found himself in a climate unquestionably as fine and salubrious as any then or hitherto discovered, in the midst of summer, and after a long and tedious voyage, Under these impressions, with a warm heart and ardent temperament, he writes a Book on Van Diemen's Land, as He found it, and as the then Settlers represented it to him. The consequence of which has been, that on these representations, many free persons wishing, if possible, to mend or improve their fortunes, determined to leave their native land, and visit these Colonies. The result, however, might not have answered ...

The armies of Generala Sack ta and Wittcensilin, ia Bessarbia, had been reinforced, and put in motion. Clouds ofiossacks and Baskirs had been warned to prepare ; and even the tiumpet was at the mouth ot the trumpeter, ready for the blast which was quickly to be the signal ot assault upon Tuikey, in more than one vulnerable quarter at the same moment.
