THE HERMIT [?]n Diemen's Land. [No.22. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

THE HERMIT in Van Diemen's Land. [No. 22 "" There is not iifthe world a greatirverror than*that whirh fools are to aptftoifall mto, and knaves With good I eaton to i «-»couture, the , mistaking a satirist for a libeller ; whereas to a true satirist nothing is so.odious as a libeller; for the same reason as to a tuan truly-Virtuous, nothing is so hateful as a hypocrite."- Pops. From New Norfolk, I bent my course through a peculiarly rich and park-like tract of'country, on the other side of the Derwent, to the Lower and Upper Clyde ; proceeding from Bothwell, to the high North road, and following it, as far as   Jericho ; leaving which, I directed my steps through Bagdad and Brighton, to Richmond ; thence, to Sorell town, returning across two wide ferries to the seat of Government. During my ride, I paid'many visits,'took sundry notes, and I made several observations upon the characters with whom I became acquainted. AU these will be digested and arranged .in proper form,...

Hint to our Subscribers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

$¿ut to out &uD#mïim. Tbe South African Commercial Advertiser makes tbe fol- lowing hints, which may be well applied to many of our readers. It observes, " this custom of borrowing the paper, instead of buying it, should be discountenanced by every lover of his adopted counfry. It may appear unueigbbourlyi to refuse so simple a request as ' a sight of the Advertiser for,half,a secondi' the/time far which it is usually begged but tthis generosity tells'heavily against'the publisher. The I instant a subscriber thinks he is merely obliging his friends, whose, importunity he is glad to get rid of by surrendering- his 'newspaper-while he is, in fact, not only getting his paper soiled or torn, bot depriving us of six or seven annual sub- scribers," We trust these faints will have the desired effect, and,relie ve our friends, from being continually annoyed with I-" Will you please to lend me the Colonial Times."

Impounding System. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

  Impounding System. The following striking paragraph, copied from an English     paper ought to serve as a salutary caution to those persons in this Island, who have made it a practice to drive many poor honest settler's and even widow's stock to the pound, without any apparent injury having been sustained ; but with a view only to enrich their own pockets, or those of their friends ! ! Indeed such has been acknowledged by some of the honest gentry who deal in this nefarious system, which we can de- signate nothing less than cattle and sheep stealing indirectly. The following is the paragraph alluded to:-:   "A farmer is now confined in the King's Bench Prison under these circumstances:-He impounded some sheep that broke into his ground and destroyed some apple trees, and one guinea was estimated for the damage done, when the farmer offered to take three shillings. The party was owned the sheep replevied, and took the cause into t...

Sir C. Chambers and Sir E. West. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

Sir C. Chambers and Sir E. West. Of the character of the former, we do not remember that we have had reason ever to speak but yvith respect, and we feel the loss of even such a man, as one of great importance to In- dia. But, of Sir Edward West, we have bad occasion, in al- most every Number of our Publication, to express ourselves in terms of the highest praise and admiration. No Indian Judge, of whose public character and oonduct we know any thing, ap- pears to us to have united, in himself, so completely the clear preemptions of what was his duty, as it regarded the extension of legal protection to tbe Natives of India, aud the firmness ne- cessary to enable him to perform that duty, in spite of all the bland allurements of patronage, the ¡ntigues of secret enemies, or the open threats of poner. He had all the tenderness of feel- ing necessary to sympathise with the oppressed and suffering classes of our fellow-subjects in India, and all the' strength of nerve to qualify bim to s...

The Black Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

The Black Natives.               On Monday last, a tribe of these barbarous and uncivilized savages, consisting of not less than one hundred and fifty in   number, made their appearance at Blinkworth's Hunting     Grounds, about three miles from the Cross Marsh. It appears, that they had been for some time previously pursued by dif- ferent parties of the Field Police and the Military. The de- predations which they have committed in this neighbourhood in so short a time, and with such increased symptoms of daring       outrage are unparalled in any former instance of at- tacks perpetrated by the natives. In the first place, this very     formidable tribe, whose very appearance was enough to   frighten any respectable settler's family, attacked the farm-   house of Ca...

Ikey Solomon. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

Ikey Solomon.               Far be it from us ever to rejoice at another's woe ; other- wise, the act of justice that has been rendered to the commu- nity — the signal example of promptness and decision shewn both by the English and Local Governments, and the warning to evil-doers, exemplified in the arrival of a Messenger by the       Lady 0f the Lake, with a Warrant from the Secretary of State, for the apprehension of the notorious Ikey Solomons, who had done us the honor of making choice of this Island for his re- sidence, has we believe excited but one feeling, and that is, entire satisfaction among all lovers of good and orderly conduct.   We have reason to know, that the domestic arrangements       of this family have been viewed with jealousy by many indus- trious well-behaved persons in unfortuna...

The North Pole.—Capt. Ross. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

The North Pole.-Capt« Ross« In the Spring of 1828, Governor Simpson, of the Hudsons' Bay Company, was told by Captain Ross, that he meant to attempt visiting the Pole in 1829, and, if possible to proceed through   the North-West Passage to Nontka Sound, on the northern coast of America ; and Captain Ross requested the Governor to in-   form the clerks of the Company,.stationed at the posts on that distant coast, of the navigators intention, so that they might be on the look-out for him towards the close of the present year. Governor Simpson started in his canoes through the in- terior of America last summer ; he intended to winter at the mouth of the Columbia River, on the north-west coast, and return by way of the Arctic Sea and Hudsons' Bay this fall; so that the Captain and the Governor have every chance of meeting; and, should they not be so fortunate, the agents at the stations will be on the alert to render every, needful as- sistence to the daring na...

Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

Transportation.       In the House of Commons, on Friday night, M. Hume enqui-   red from Mr. Peel why convicts were not, as the cheaper course, sent to Botany Bay at once, instead of being kept aboard the hulks. Mr. Peel replied, that there was a limit to the numbers capable of being received in Botany Bay, and that the prepa-   ratory discipline of the hulks, was found highly useful. It ap- peared last year, that there were 4203 convicts onboard the   hulks, the total expence of their support being 75,810l., while the value of their labour in the dock yards was estimated at 75,000l. Mr. Bennett deprecated the system of sentencing con- victs tor seven years to transportation, and then remitting their     punishment after two years at the hulks. Mr. Peel said, the rule was, that the Superintendent, at the end of three years and a half of imprisonment, had the privilege of recommen...

' Junius. When, a fortnight ago, we briefly expressed our congratula     tinons to the Public, that the crowded state of the gaol had at length, although tardily, attracted the attention of those, in whose hands are the issues of life and death, we little ex   pected that the series of adjournments since experienced, was   probable-we might almost say possible ; on the contrary, we   fully anticipated, that the whole winter having been passed in doubts, the long looked for announcement that they were re   moved, would have been a complete, not a partial measure, as   it has proved. We do not think it necessary to add many comments to our present recital of facts, as we may, perhaps, embody t...

Flogging. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

Flogging.             Mr. HUME has brought under the notice of the House, the   disgraceful punishment of flogging in the army and navy ; and though his motion for its total abolition was not successful, we have no doubt but it will have its due effect upon every enlightened mind, in the United Kingdom. Flogging is, at least, a brutal practice, which the British Parliament has, by repeated acts, expressed its abhorrence of, even upon the brute creation.- Must it not then be contrary to the spirit of the British constitution, to inflict this species of torture upon human beings, our own flesh and blood? This subject is very applicable to those Colonies where flogging is considered by some as a pastime ! We trust the day is not far distant, when the Honourable Gentleman's notions, for abolishing arrest for debt and flogging, will meet more attention from the Imperial Parliament. Mr. HUME has pro...

To Wives & Daughters of Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 November 1829

To Wives & Daughters of Farmers. Cobbett, in speaking of the advantages likely to be derived from his having succeeded in growing, in England, a field of Indian Corn perfectly ripe, and of the great saving it would be in making rye and corn bread, instead of wheaten bread, for farming labourers, while the former are only 5s. and 5s.6d. per bushel, and the latter is from 10s. to 12. a bushel, says : " And would it not be better if farmers' wives and daughters, would turn then attention to nutters like this, and withdraw that attention a little from the forte-piano (the strong and sweet), and from the soil and seducing novels of Sir Walter Scott and other philosophers of that description? If I were the owner of a great landed estate, I would find the means, I warrant them of compelling them to keep servants in   the house, and thus prevent the pauperism and thieving and poaching that are now going on all over the country.
