To the Editor of the Colonial Times. NOLUMUS LEGES, ANGLIE MUTARE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 November 1826

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. NOLUMUS LEGES, ANGLIE MUTARE. Sir,- I have read your report of the trial against Broughton, which appears pretty correct, except in one important part. He   was tried for two distinct felonies, in not pay- ing over the monies to Dr. Bromley. It is quite clear, therefore, that the offence could not he proved without the Doctor's testimony. With respect to the last charge, which was the 1365 Spanish dollars, per Triton, Dr. Bromley expressly stated, that he had never been examined upon oath respecting it, and that he had never sworn that he had not re- ceived it, nor would he.   Upon what evidence then, did the Grand Jury put this man upon his trial? It surely could not have been upon the examination taken before the Board of Inquiry, which had no power to compel the attendance of a   witness, much less administer an oath. I am at a loss to conceive why you have omitted this, or why an explanation has not   be...

That influence has been giadually diminishing, and since Mr. BUTTI aw oui ii has become the leader, is nea». lye\tini*t. We make the following extiact of a Parliamentary Debate, horn an English Paper, on the subject of the " Kildare«street Society," which will shew the great know- ledge andliUeral ntntimpitts of this leader, and . the great estimation in which he'is held by the House :- , " Mi.

CCJQM.-VÍ @tnt£3. BOßART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1826. Political economy has become wkhin the Jast few years so comprthensive a term, and so interwoven with all the acts of Govern- ment, that the greater part of its measures may be classified under it ; and fiom mea- sures of the State, it is now extended to the affairs of private individuals--so much do -we become the creatures of fashion, and adopt a phrase unknown to our forefathers. Taking the phrase in its modern acceptation, we shall offer a few remaiks upon the politi- cal'economy of this Govt! nmeut, and which will enable us to afford a key to those points v hich we offered to the consideration of our Readers, the week before last. During the time that Colonel DAVEY was the Lieutenant Governor of this Colony, its resources were limited, its numbers few, and its morals lax. It might be truly said at that time to be a penal Settlement, With great opportunities of making money, and with gi eat temptations. Under Colonel So HE...

ROSS MARKET. This market was held on Wednesday   se'nnight.-As this is the commencement of an establishment, much wanted in the in- terior of the Island, and the first of the kind that has yet taken place here, it has been attended with some disadvantages; but, we are glad to find, that the sales were very en- couraging under those circumstances.

The Bush- rangers [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 November 1826

The Bush-rangers H. Strong, M. Brown, G. Ellis', and W. Birt, the prisoners who escaped from Launceston Gaol, a few weeks back, and who have since committed several depredations amongst the Settlers in the interior, were on Monday last brought into town, and lodged in the Gaol. After making their appearance at Mr. Harri- son's, at Antill's Ponds, where they were beaten off by that Gentleman and his ser- vants, they were pursued and taken by a party of the 40th Regiment, at Penny-royal Creek, near the Western Tier. We feel great pleasure in having to add, that the judicious arrangements which have been made by Lieutenant Colonel BALFOUR, commanding the Military parties stationed in the interior, have led to this very happy re- sult. Their, speedy apprehension now clear- ly convinces every man, that Colonel Bal four's valuable services were much required during the late 'dreadful and alarming state of the Colony, when Brady and his gang were plundering and murdering the lonely Settler...

Parliamentary Entelligence. HOUSE OF COMMONS-MAY 4. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 November 1826

Watli&mnuvQ Jíntelligence. House of Commons-May 4.. Sir M. W. Ridley and Mr. Canning both rose at the same time ; and the Right Hon. Gentleman asked the Hon. .Member if h« would not give way to a motion of pressing Importance which was before the House? Sir M. W. Ridley would detain the House but a very few minutes. It must be evident to every man, that nothing could better up- hold or secure respect for the laws, than their fair and impartial administration, whether in Great Britain, or any of her Colonies or De- pendencies. But this became the more im- portant when applied to such a Colony as New South Wales. It appeared) that in August 1825, the Grand Jury of Parramatta had, in fuesenting the stace of the gaols, also pre erred a bill of indictment against certain Magistrates for maladministration of justice. Here the Hon. Member proceeded to read a detail of the cruelties alleged to have beçn committed on three or four individuals by a Dr. Douglas, and other Magistrates. ...

Fellow Colonists,-As the Van Diemen's Land Company are daily assuming an import ance,and putting on the appearance of an extra Government, which manifests itself by their immense offer for Tenders and Bill Drawing, it is high time that you should enquire into, and scrutinize the views of this Company, ana more particularly is it incumbent at this per- iod, when it appears that they are feeling the pulse of the Colony, by endeavouring to dis fiose of a portion of their shares here.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 10 November 1826

Colonial Times, Hobart Town FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1826. An infant and rising Colony may, with great propriety, be compared to a domestic circle. It must be regulated by the same principles - it is affected by the same causes, and that circle properly managed is a miniature of the good Government of a State. There must be liberality without piodigality - economy without parsimony - prudence without suspicion - affability without servility - love without fear - submission without subjection. These constitute the   main springs, and when they all work in unison, the result must be productive of happiness,   prosperity, and contentment. The judicious   management of our resources is of primary     importance and in the same proportion that every pound so expended in our infant Colony, must be of benefit to all, and tend to raise her in estimation in the Mother Country so must an injudicious expenditure lessen and injure.
