Freedom of the Press. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 October 1826
¿ÈFrrfïJom of tfp $m#. Philosophy, Wisdom, and Liberty support each other; he who,wi!l Hot reason is a Dog- matist; he who cannot, is a Fool; and he who dares not, is a Slave. (From d Correspondent.) When we consider the great ad vantages that have resulted from the Liberty of the Pi ess, and view it as the medium thiough which Philosophy has been enlightened, Science improved, and Governments directed into a regular and systematic course, we _ cannot conceive upon what grounds a reflecting and well-informed mind can wish to ^contine it within narrower limits, than those ordained by law, and already in force. Indeed it is with difficulty that we can prevail upon our- selves to contemplate the state of degrada- tion to which the human intellect must be reduced, whert forgetful of all the instruc- tion it had formerly received, forgetful of the benefits that ever have resulted from the collision of opinions, from philosophic ar- gument«, from learned disquisions upon spe- culative and...

imperial Darliairmit. HOUSE OF COMMONS->IA"Ï 12, 1826. . EMIGRATION COMMITTEE. Mr. MAURICE FITZGER YLD said, tnac see- ing the Hon. Member, Secretaiy to the Colo- nial Department, in his place, he wished to inquire whether he had seen a publication imputing to a Committee of that House, which was now sitting, an intention which was cal- culated to produce a most mischievous effect on the public mind. He alluded to a state- ment, which had been published more than once, &lt;tn a Paper, which imputed an inten- tion in that Committee to apply compulsory means to compel the population of this couti* try to emigrate to the Colonies, Having at- tended that Committee, he felt it his duty to state, that a more unwarrantable, or a>, more mischievous calumny never was invent« ed or circulated. Knowing the individuals who composed that Committee, he was bound to state, that there never existed a body of men more incapable of entertaining soch a disposition. No idea ever existed i...

They iaay they have broken his spirit down, And dnrkeu'd the sun in his glory : Butlie'll shine ou the town, with double renown, The hero of song and of story. They say that the noble and valiant caMVI, Succumbs, and proves valiant no longer: But oh ! if he stoops, he stoops unftppalFd, Like the fair when she stoops to conquer. They say that the deed was foully done That his brav'ry to man only shews it : But he'll prove that each heart, in its turn, 'ev'ry one, Is as guilty, tlio' God only knows it. They say in a word, that the race is o'er. That the steed is done up, never mind him : But Tasmanian» ! he'll soon take the course once more, And leave all the race far behind him. Q. IN THE CORNER.
Lord Byron. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 October 1826
%órtr tfyron. Xs The following verses, from the pen of Lord BYRON, have been sent to us for insertion by a Correspondent, in order that some person may favour bim, through the same medium, with an explanation of the riddle :* St was whispered in Heaven and uttered in Hell, And echo caught softly the words as they fell ; in the confines of earth t'was permitted to rest, And the depthsof the ocean its presence con fes!. -It was seen in the jighluing, and heard in the thunder, Twill he found in the sphere's when all's dri- ven asunder ; Tt was given to man with his earliest breath : It assists at his birth, and attends at his death : ¿'resides o'er his happiness, honour, and health, Is the prop of his house, and the end of his wealth ; . N It begins every hope-every wish it ltiust bound, And though unassuming, with Monarchs is crowned; Jn the heaps of the miser, it's hoarded with eaie, - ., But is soon to be lost in the prodigal heir ;' 'Without it die soldier and sailor may roam, 'But...

ij tisrï) & ïîoor ; or $aint & jinner. The poor man's sins are glaring, In the face of ghostly warning ; He is caught in the fact Of an overt act, Buying greens on a Snnday morning. The rich man's sins are under The rose of wealth and station,"* -. And escape the sight Of the children of light, , Who aré wise in their generation. ' The rich man has a kitchen ' Wherein to cook his dinner ; The poor who would roast, To the baker's must post, And thus becomes a sinner. ' The i ich man lias a cellar, And a ready butler by him ; The poor man must steer, For his pint of beer, . Where the saint can't choose but spy him. The rich-man's painted windows Hide the concerts of the quality ; The poor can but share - A'crack'd fiddle in the air, - Which offends all sound morality. - » The rich man is invisible In the crowd of his gay society ; Hut apoor man's delight . - Is a' sore in the sight, And a stench in the nose of piety. wMMMHBHilai

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1826, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 October 1826
Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1826, We beg to call the attention of our Rea- ders to the Government Orders which ap- pear in our front page. The first, in our &nbsp; opinion, seems to contain some objectionable matter, where it speaks of regulating cer- tain irregularities, which have called forth the expression of " His Majesty's displea- sure." Paragraph 1 ; " It is usual," &c. Although we are willing to give the Government credit for any measures it adopts, (where we can consistently with reason), and to admit that prisoners being remunerated for their labour in sheep is injudicious, as offering an opportunity or secreting stolen flocks, we must at once declare, that we think no bet- ter mode of payment exists, than that of making it in bullocks. For if the prisoner, as ' a reward for extra exertion, should receive from his master, at times, a young steer Jwhich species of property cannot multiply), or the purpose of working, it would be like a ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. C - '- ? ri [Open to all Parties-influenced by none."] a To the Editor of the Colonial Times. \ d SIR,-On meeting with the case of Anne Gibson, that unfortunate female who died suddenly last week in the Factory, I was led to make some few observations on that horri- ble place of female incarceration. When any female is returned from her ser- vice, no matter for what, she is put into this den of iniquity, on the plea that she will there be protected from the snares and temptations which in the town are liable to be laid to al- ure her from the path of reformation by the evil disposed. All this would be very good, if the classification so universally recommend- ed by all writers on prison discipline was re- garded, and some alternative left by which she could avoid the society of those very abandoned females who have been put in for their ill behaviour, and as a punishment in many instances for some of the worst of crimes. But this is not the case ; she has no...

Itfel» i&oíimiov** The Sunday Times of April 23, says-" We hear that Sir R. Don ki \ is in Good Hope -of a distant' Govern ment."-Sir R. Donkin was formerly Governor of the Cape of Good Hope, and Member of Parliament for Malden ; but does notappear to have been'returned during the late General Election. As it has been lately reported that Lieute- nant Governor Authur -expects to be suc- ceeded about April next, we think it very probable that Sir R. D »nkiu is the Officer who will be appointed as t.he Second Governor in Chief for this Colony. Sir Hcnry Torrens has gone out to the &lt; Cape of Good Hopei, as the Governor of that Colony, in the room of Lord Charles Somer- set, recalled.-We imagine that the British Government, seeing the mischief which has been,occasioned by Lord Charles Somerset's endeavours to abolish the Liberty of the Press, has appointed Sir Henry, who is so well known'to be' its supporter and defender, in order to counteract*it. .

ORIGINAL -CORRESPONDENCE. - To"fhe- Editor*of the Colonial Tinici? Si«,-K«has frequently surprised rroe and many others, that, although you, profess to utter the opinions of-the Public, and indeed in so many instances have boldly dono so,: you should so long have overlooked the cause ofthat universal dissatisfaction. which is felt at the measures of the existing Govern- ment, as you must surely have heard the complaints ot your friends at different times, and on every side. Ypur^not, having before noticed it, certainly Jhas.arfsenfrom its having escaped your memory, Allow me, then, Mr. Editor, to remind you of this subject, and at the same time to request that you will, thro* the medium of your valaable Journal, make known, to Lieut. Governor Arthur, that His Majesty's subjects, one and all, have to la- ment the manner in which he is surround- ed by a few certain, men, and, as it were, hedged in from publie view. The great difficulty of obtaining access to His Ex- cellency is the gr...
The Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 20 October 1826
The Natives On Saturday, the 7th instant, three of Mr. Allardice's men, on the Clyde, were sur- prised by a tribe of Natives, who had pre- viously secured their fire-arms in the hut at a little distance. The Natives immediately commenced an attack upon them, and, while the men were endeavouring to swim the &nbsp; Clyde, in order to escape, one was unfortu- nately Speared, and sunk to rise no more ; his body has not yet been found. On Tuesday, the 10th instant, a man went to the soldiers at Bothwell, to acquaint them, that, the Natives had attacked their master, Mr. Nicholson's hut but as there was no Magistrate in the district to grant a warrant, the soldiers could not render them any as- sistance.-On the man's return to Mr. Nichol- son, he found one of his companions speared, and the other was seen running from the Na- tives, and has not since been heard of ; in fact, there can be no doubt but that he is murdered. The Natives robbed the hut of &nbsp; every thing; an...

.â^ im?» ¡PueugpBu The dissemination of knowledge is so use- ful an undertaking in any community, but much more so in one like that of Van Di» men's Land, that it behoves every man to strain eveiy nerve to attain this important point. When Mr. Brougham was installed as Lord Rector of the University of Gfassgôw,head dressed the students at some length, and con- cluded his harangue with the following pa- triotic, manly, and philosophic observations, in reply to those persons who object to the diffusion of knowledge among the lower or- ders ;-" To those who feel alarm, as states- men and friends of social order, I would ad- dress a few words. The cultivation of sci- ence has never really promoted turbulence or or unbelief; but its progress is the forerunner of libeiality and enlightened toleration. He who dreads the light of Truth cannot resist its power. For he may be well assured that the day is at length come which must put to flight the evil spirits ot tyranny and persecu- tion. As...
