Ross Bridge. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 29 September 1826

KofW tfvtîJgr. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. . I si Mu. ëditok,--With leference to the Esta- blishment of a Market at Ross Bridge (which every man, desirous of promoting the good of the country, will appiove of, though he may differ as to time and circumstances), u A Shepherd" in last week's Colonial Times, makes several, not injudicious observations, ile objects to the peiiod appointed for the Market on three grounds ; namely, the floods at the particular season of the year, and in- stances the St. Paul's River-the South Esk River, &c-and then to the want of condi- tion of the sheep, &c-In my opinion, there can be no great difficulty in pointing out re- medies for the first two objections. If the " Shepherd" is a neighbour of mine, on l?reak-of-day Plains, I beg kindly to invite him to unite with me and others to erect a Hridge over the St. Paul's, which may be soon accomplished, in a manner to affoid every accommodation for man and beast.-I have no doubt the...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE [Open to all parties-- influenced by none.]   Assigned Servants. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,--Although I am far from being qua- lified for figuring in public discussion, far   from possessing those talents, which are ne- cessary to fit a man for any literary produc-   tion ; I could not help throwing together the following few, undigested remarks, which suggested themselves to me on perusing the Letter of your Correspondent, " X. Y. Z." which appeared in your Journal of the 22d instant, on the subject of the treatment of, and allowance proper for, assigned ser-   vants, that wretched class of society, who by their former errors and crimes, have been banished from their native country ; and doomed to drag out the remainder or their miserable existence, in bondage and in exile. At the same time that I am far, very far from commending the conduct of prisoners generally, I cannot help observing, th...

Mobart Town Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 29 September 1826

Hobart Town Concert Yesterday evening, the first Public Con- cert which this Island has as yet known, took place at the Court-house. The plan of the Concert has been organised by a Commit- tee of Gentlemen, and supported by the pa-   tronage of His Excellency the Lieutenant Go- vernor and Mrs. Arthur. Notwithstand- ing the unpropitious state of the weather, and the wretched condition of the streets, which were almost impassable, there was a numerous assemblage of Ladies and Gentle- men present-several of whom were from various parts of the country. The number of persons could not) have been less than 250 or 300, and the effect of the coup-d'-oil of the whole was most brilliant. The Band of the 40th Regt. were in their elegant and chaste new uniforms. They were placed in three rows, each row a ljttle elevated in height above tile other. The trumpets and horns iq the hindmost row, each side of what was the Judge's bench, the trombone in the centre. An excellent grand pian...

^ ipq&Mía^ / - -000 m)t m»t of m AFvee mew. Heaven sent the PRESS to awe a guilty age, And lash the vices with a noble rage ; Warned by the fate of Greece and Rome undone, Each wild extreme of party-heat to shun; To bid the biazen roar of battle cease, And join mankind in holy leagues of peace ; With the deep thunder of her fearless tone, To drive contending factions from the throne ; Check evil counsels ; guard the common weal, And till the Royal mind with patriot zeal ; These are her virtuous tasks : but these are not all The mighty claims that for her labours call. 'Tis her's the cause of suffering realms to plead, And lend to Justice an impartial aid ; .Against invasion's sword to arm the brave, And break the galling fetters of the slave ; With fair applause to fan the generous flame, When Art and Science woothe meed of fame; To smooth their path, their anxious toils repay, And lead them forth from darkness into day ; Strike their fell foe, malignant envy down, And vote ...

Had His Majesty's Ministers done nothing else for us, they would have deser- ved immortal honour for the coinage of this phrase, which has done every thing but paid our debts. The Debtor's Manual is a hum- bug; the whole business of it may be sum- med up in one word-the pecuniary crisis which is an answer to every application.

It how ever appeared by some other subsequent informa- tion, that he was a returned transport from this Colony before the expiration or his term of exile, the man was drafted to the hulk, and subsequently here. On his an i val, he was said to have boasted of being in the pos- session °f 200Q1., and other property ; which comiqg to the ears of the Principal Superin* tenant of prisoners, tf)e man was peiempt prily desired to deliver this entire sum ; -and it was accordingly deposited in the Bank.

JK Co ti&e íhaüit, The PROPRIEOR of this Journal has this week the satisfaction to announce to his friends and' tile ,Pilblio, that he has been restored to his family and business, after an imprisonment of six months, which he has suffered for having printed and publish- ed certain articles, alleged to be libellous against the'present Government-riot his own productions, and which were publish- ed two years ago. Besides the imprison- ment, it may not be generally known, that he has been obliged, during his confine- ment in Gaol, to pay -an amount exceeding £G00, for fines imposed and levied upon him, including law and other expenses. This may no doubt surprise many individu- als, because it was confidentially antici- pated, not only by ourselves, but by nu- merous of our friends, that THE FINES at least WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN EXACT- ED.-In fact the Sydney Gazette of the 1st of July states, " iVofu what has reached us lately, we do not despair of hearing speedily of Mr. BENT'S...

MORE BUSHRANGERS. It is with painful feelings, we have to inform our readers, that on Sunday last, about 9 o'clock in the evening, the farm- house of J. Foster, Esq. at Macquarie River, was attacted by a banditti of armed bushrangers, five in number, supposed to have been some of the prisoners who lately escaped from Launceston. When they entered, Mr Foster, his mother and his brother (a youth) were reading. The overseer, all the working men and the sheperd were unfortunately from home at the time. There was only a       boy in the house, besides the family.- Without the slightest previous alarm, the ruffians     burst open the door, exclaiming - "we are bush-rangers," their pieces being presented, swearing if any one moved, they would blow out their brains. Regardless of the threats, Mr. Foster and his brother jumped up. When   the villains, fulfiling their threat, fired, but fortunately without effect. U...
