ON KANGAROO ISLAND, And the Runaways in the Straits. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 10 June 1826

ON KANGAROO ISLAND, And the Runaways in the Straits. Nearly six months have elapsed since we first directed the attention of the Pub- lic to the characters hovering about the islands in the Straits. At that time Cap- tain Welsh supplied us with some inte- resting materials the publication of which, it is not too much to say, has not a little paralysed the evil practices of these men ;     it has also excited some remarks in the elder Colony, the propriety of which, we shall presently shew. The great impor tance of the subject has by this means been gradually developed ; and the Go vernment, we are sensible, is fully im- pressed with the necessity of speedily adopting some measure which will arrest the ruin of a valuable Colonial export, and repress a dangerous and increasing band of pirates. We regret that our confined space obliges us, as usual, to abridge our ideas on this generally inte- resting subject ; we shall however endea- vour to draw the brief outline so distinct as to en...

MISCELLANY, ORIGINAL AND SELECT. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 10 June 1826

MISCELLANY, ORIGINAL AND SELECT.   The new Mechanic's Institution is ridi- culed by the John Bull newspaper in a burlesque letter from a student to his brother — "The first thing that the Doc- tor taught us was out of the works of Matthew Mattocks. If you wanted to draw an angel of forty five, how could you do it without Matthew Mattocks ? You don't know what a strait line is, nor ever can know without jometry. A strait line, Tim, is the shortest way from one point to another, like the quadrant in Regent-street, which is the shortest way from the County Fire Office to the cor- ner of Vigo lane. A problem was given me to work — Given C. A. B. to find Q. which I did in a twinkling. Take your     C. A. B. through Hammersmith, turn to the left just before you get to Brentford and Kew is right before you. The Doctor says, sound travels 186,786 feet in a minute. How he found that out so exactly he won't tell nobody, but he said if we brought it down ...

I To the Editor, of the Hobart Town Gazette. \ As the friend of the Colonial Treasurer, f request that you will give publicity to the following facts in refutation of the mis statements weekly put forth from another quarter. In the month of March lsst, Mr. Tho- mas, while in the country,*was by letter informed of an attack made upon his cha- racter during his absence. He instantly returned to Town, and was then called upon for an explanation of his conduct by the Head of the Government, in the presence of Mr. Humphrey. As no charge was or could be made against Mr. 'Thomas as a Public Officer, the affair could only be con- sidered as a ¿natter of private feeling, and as «uch the ;tnediation of two friends was proposed, with a view to an amicable ad- justment. Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Hone were named. Mr. Thomas consented, but 1 Mr. Humphrey objected to Mr. Hone, and named Mr. Thomas Aicjjer ; to this also <Mr. Thomas^ expressed his acquiescence. Nothing more occurred till the ...

We must not indeed forget, in the midst of our Colonial avo- cations, that we are a portion of a rearing and an enlightened people, and that the advantages of this Island afford sufficient leisure and opportunity to the settler to keep alive that deeire for knowledge, from which, the rising lace will take its stamp and character. the literary rank and connected, with it, the reputation and influence of the Colony, generally, will depend on this. The settlement of Van Diemen's Land has been formed under auspices peculiarly favourable. It consists of a body of respectable emigrants, many with considerable capital, havin...

MISCELLANY, original and select. -An authentic report has been published of the debate in the House of Commons oti the 23d of June last, on Mr. Buxton's motion relative to the late outrages in Bar badoes upon the Missionaries. These praiseworthy men were, it appears, working a happy chance in the minds of that popu- lation, particularly the slaves ; and certain slave owners, calling themselves the most respectable people in the Island, dreading that their worldly interest might be affected >>\ such blessed endeavour demolished the Methodist'Chapel and the Mission-house, expelled Wjk-Shrewsbury a Wesley an Mis sionary, published inflammatory proclama-' tions, erected a gallows and suspended, and burned ini-effigy, Mr. Wilberforce, Mr. Buxton, Mr. Shrewsbury, Mr. Stephen, and a lady who offered a reward to punish the rioters; and, lastly, prevented a kingN vessel, sent1 by Lord Bathurst with persons to rebuild the chapel, from approiching the island.

ON ROADS, And the means of making them in this Colony. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 17 June 1826

ON ROADS, And the means of making them in ihiz Colony. Our Readers, we are sure, will teqiiite no apology ' from us for drawing their attention to this most important subject. Were the period of nattie cot)fined to the dry season, little would be necessary for the foimntiun of toads in V.in Dienien's Land beyond the mere operation of level- ling j hut journeys to mi»U't must b'e made at all times, and the same motived of load making is to be resulted lo h'fre os in more humid climatet.i We shall theiefoie endeavour to nive as distinct a view as our limits will pet nut of this art, wh.ch, since the first appearance ol'civil engineers^ about fifty year-» aqo, has gi a dually anived «it its present perfection. The best situation, a« we conceive, for a road along the undulating'sui face of this island, is midway between the high and the low giound.

POLICE OFFICE, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 17 June 1826

POLICE OFFICE, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14, 1826. This day, Anthony Fenn Kemp, Esq. Merchant, in Hobart Town, appeared at this Office, to prefer a charge against his servant, named Clapperton, for stealing a quantity of meat and bread, the property and part of the provision of his master the said Mr Kemp. The prosecutor was how- ever unprepared with sufficient evidence, and the Convict Clerk, as Mr. Kemp denominated, him, in very respectful and   submissive terms suggested the inability, as the case then stood, to maintain the   charge. This opinion was dissentient with that of Mr. Kemp, who left the Office   expressing his high dissatisfaction at the "protusive manner of the convict clerk." A document was afterwards filed at the Office as part of the record of the day, on which it appears that Clapperton (whose   office of cook, must, certainly have afforded him 'frequent opportunities to     enact the part of Fil...

ON THE MANAGEMENT OF SHEEP. Our conntry Readers will excuse us of piesnmptioti in presenting to their view the following remmks on this subject, beyond a doubt one of the most i m por« tant which can occupy the attention of j the Colonist in Van Diemen's Land. He ' who was before unacquainted with the particulars will profit by the instruction, and he to whom they were once familiar, will no1 be displeased to have them again brought io remembrance. Of ali domes tie animals, the sheep is of ihe greatest consequence to us, yielding, as ii does, an annual fleece which no other kind of stock affords, and enjoying a soil and climate so preeminently adapted to us habits. Most flocks throughout the Co- lony are allowed to travel over too great an extent of ground in search of ,fo«d. | Whether this arises from their being lett to follow their own inclination, or fiom the too great number of the flock, wheie the foreruuners, consuming the grass oblige the rear to urge them^sUM forward, in or...
