[FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 November 1826

'd [from a correspondent.*] Saturday will be memorable in the annals of Launceston, for a furious and desperate conflict, which took place on that day be- tween Doctor F. and Captain W. They first went out, but, from .some unknown cause, tlu'y waived fire and lead,and bravely forced, their way into a well-fortified Hotel, where they probably recruiting themselves with spirits; they set-to, and fought, manfully, until settled upon the redoubtable and.va- liant Doctor. The visage of the Captain ex- hibits signs and tokens, of the desperate, warr fare iri which he has been engaged.?It ap- pears the Doctors on both sides of the Is- land, are " real pugilists." Several of the great little men of Launces? ton, were summoned on the last Coroner's Inquest, but refused, to attend. One in par- ticular, is such a great little man, that, al- though repeatedly sent for, he would not?; nor did not attend. / . . Pray are not the brewers eligible upjpn a Coroner's Jury, as well as the bakers ? Carg...

Sir,?I am desirous of seeing a respectable class of society less imposed upon, by the pernicious and unlawful sellers of spirits in the houses, denominated ¦** JSty '¦ Grog Shops;" and 1 know no reason that eau be assigned, when I take into consideration, the expenqes attendant on Publicans, why these nefarious traffickers, in contraband spirits, should be permitted to elude the watchful eye pf the ?

We now possess, an Act of Council, to discountenance such unlawful proceedings, to the material injury of the Publican, who lawfully deals in spirituous li- quors, and pays a due license for selling them. Independent of the serious evil which.these " Sly Gr g Shnps" encourage and maintain among the prison population, I have only, Mr. Editor, to walk up one of the principal streets of bur little capital, and I will count yoirl??yes, thirteen, who will sell rum to any prisoner, who is what they'term "flask."

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sta,?The establishment of. a Public Mar- ket in a central situation would be highly ad- vantageous to.the Colony, "provided it were instituted in a liberal manner? and without reference to private interest or party-feeling. The Settler is at present unable to compete with the Merchant, who has a fixed place fqr the transaction pf his business. A General Mart is indispensable where all parties may meet op an equal footing; whither the former may convey .his produce, with some certainty of a fair return, without com- mitting himself by a long journey to Hobart Town, where being at the mercy of the townsfolks, he must frequently, sell;his pro- perty :at a disadvantage to avoid the alterna- tive of its reposition ; where he may have an opportunity pf seeing .the best stock? of ascertaining the most advantageous modes of breeding and management, ahd pf select ing animals to improve liis own flocks. lt is to be regretted, therefore, that a late attempt...

DREADFUL MURDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 17 November 1826

DREADFUL MURDERS, BY THE BLACK NATIVES. To be again compelled, after an interval of no more than one week, to record some of the atrocious acts of the Native Aboriginal Blacks, is truly painful to our feelings. As if the mur- der reporded in our last week's Paper was not enough,we have this day to annouce another. On Tuesday,' the 7th instant, Black Tom and his tribe, ci the number of three hundred! came down upon the farm of Mr. George Simpson, at the Penny-royal Creek. They surprised the hut, in which were only two men - one of whom received a spear through his back, in endea- vouring to escape, which occasioned his death, in the most excruciating agonies, on Friday morning. The other escaped to "tell the   tale of blood." The natives afterwards robbed the hut of all the clothes, bedding, &c. which it contained, with which they made off. In the course of the same week, another tribe of these treacherous race of human beings made a de- scent upon thc shepherd's...

The Natibes. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 November 1826

The Natives. We last week stated that seven more indi- viduals had been inhumanly murdered by the black Natives. From the particulars of this lamentable account, it appears we had been mis-informed, and that there was no founda- tion for that report. But, we are sorry to be compelled to lay before the Public, a state- ment of a most horrid and treacherous occur- rence, which has since taken place. On Tuesday last, a tribe of the aborigines, about 80 in number, came down to the saw-pits of Mr. JOHN RISELEY, at Cockatoo Valley, in the Macquarie District. They entered into a friendly intercourse with the sawyers and shingle-splitters - asked them for tobacco and provisions, which were cheerfully given by the sawyers; indeed all they had. The   natives (mark the now sagacious conduct of these people) asked if they had any muskets;   and were answered in the negative, - the fire- arms being fortunately in the possession of the shingle-splitters, who were at work...

However, nothing satisfactory was given. The consequence was, that a meeting was agreed upon ; the Captain and his friend went out, and found the va fiant Doctor at the place appointed by himself, sitting under a gum tree. He was requested to return into town, and bring a Mr. N. the friend whom he had nominated. He went into town, but the valiant Doctor knew better than jtp return io his old station-the gum tree, and, on Captain W's return to the Hotel, he took his horsewhip and salli...
