Government House. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 November 1826

Government House.     It was not one of the least claims of grati- tude which PERICLES and THEMISTOCLLS had upon their country, for having embellished Athens with public edifices, which have be- come the admiration of posterity ; and we are persuaded that Governors of young Colo- nies cannot better consult their own reputa- tion, and the public weal, than to unite taste, and utility, in all buildings erected at the pub. lie cost. It must be known to most o four Readcis, that General MACQUARIE intended that the new Government-house should be si- tuated on Macquarie Point, in a line with the principal street of Hobart Town. There was much taste in this plan, which would have greatly improved the appearance of the town and harbour. The Public have, therefore, beheld, with regret, that the foundation of Government-house has been dug near Haua gan's Point, is a corner, and out of sight, both of town, and harbour. The selection of this secluded spot -is quite in,...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. NON EST JOCUS E^SE MALIGNUM.-Horace. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 November 1826

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. NON EST JOCUS ESSE MALIGNUM.-Horace. SIR,-I observe in your Paper of last week, a letter signed " Ruris Amicus ;" the malig- nity of whose production is too palpable to deserve any notice, had it not been accom- panied by a remark of your own, "that the   sentiments of this writer were those of the public," which, I think, upon enquiry, you will find to be at variance with the fact. An objection may have been made, that the distance from Ross to Hobart Town was too great to admit of its Market being es- sentially beneficial to the capital ; but that situation was merely fixed upon as being cen- tral, and not with any wish to interfere with markets in other parts of the Island. To refute the mis-statements of your Cor- respondent, I need only appeal to the Colo- nial Newspapers, in both of which all the proceedings of the.Ross Market have been openly and regularly published, and the pub- lic invited to partici...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 November 1826

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:     FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1826. In our leading article of last week, we called the attention of our Readers, to two of the prominent features ot the Act of Par- liament, for the better administration of jus- tice in this Colony. We cautiously avoided all observations upon persons, and endeavour- ed to discuss the subject with respect, but with the fidelity its importance demanded. We are happy to find that our motives have been properly appreciated, and, from what we can understand, there is every prospect that a lasting benefit to the Colony will result from it; but, as we were obliged to close our   remarks rather abruptly, because we had ex- ceeded our usual limits, we beg to draw   the attention of our Readers, to some obser- vations upon the Acts which have been pro- mulgated, the necessity of a Legislative As- sembly, and the promise held forth in the Act of Parliament, of having that privilege con...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 1 December 1826

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sm,?It has been, observed by 'berspns of the greatest experience, that nothing tends so greatly to demoralize any community, as . ' an inequality in the numbers of the'sexes.-r Indeed, it is nothing more than a reasonable conclusion, which may be drawn from any strict enquiry into the subject, which is bus of such a delicate,, or rather, I should, say, au indelicate nature,, that I shall be very brief in my observations, and very cautious iu my ex- pressions while treating on; it. While there is an equal number of men and women in a society, there is a mutual check put. upon each hythe presence of the other; for how abandoned soever a man is?how deeply soe»er he is immersed in the sloughof ini- quity, the presence of a virtuous woman wilt operate in spite of himself, as a check to his, obscenity. It is a singular fact, but it is n >^f\ less true; and we can only account for it by % its being the natural desire of a man tb ren- '1 der himself s...

COURT OF KING'S BENCH, JULY 4. NOCKELLS, v. LUCAS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 1 December 1826

COURT OF KING'S BENCH, JULY 4. NOCKELLS, v. LUCAS AND OTHERS. This was an action of trespass brought by   the owners of the ship called the Emerald against, the late Sheriffs of London, Messrs. Lucas and Thompson, and a Mr. Eicke, an Attorney, for entering the plaintiff's'ship, breaking open the hatches, and taking away the cargo. The defendants pleaded a justifi- cation, namely, that they were justified in taking the goods under a writ of fieri facias, against a person named Thornton, the con- signer of the goods. The question was, whe- ther the goods were taken really and bonafide under the effect of an execution sued out by a judgment creditor, or whether this execu- tion was to enable Messrs. Hopley and Ling- ham, consigners of the cargo, to obtain the goods without payment of the freight. It   appeared that a Mr. Thornton, who was deb- tor to Hopley and Lingham, sailed to Van Diemen's Land, and sent home a cargo of oil and whalebone, consigned to Hople...

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN:     FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1826.   In conducting a Journal, which is under-     stood to express the general sentiments and wishes of the people, and in some instances, to regulate and lead them, we are occasion- ally obliged to present those subjects to the   attention of our Readers, which the pressing necessity of the case requires, although they may be attended with painful results. It was this feeling which induced us to devote our space in the last two numbers, to the con- struction and operation of the Council, to the exclusion of our leading article, in continua- tion upon the political economy of this Go- vernment; and it is with the same feeling, that we now beg most earnestly, to draw the attention of all, to the present situation of those poor, wretched, but infatuated savages, the Aborigines of this Island.

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 8 December 1826

/^ To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-While possessing a climate, perhaps the finest in the world for the purpose-so much spare, and now useless land'which might be made use of to advantage, it is really surprising that the Colonists of Van Diemen's Land should not pay some atten-. tion to the keeping of BEES. These little creatures are so very industrious, that they cost very little expence or trouble for their support, and yield in return that which is fvery where a-valuable and saleable commo- dity ; indeed, I should say commodities, for wax and honey are both very valuable. A little thyme-seed scattered over the now de- sert and barren spots of land, would soon fur- nish them with an endless source of food for the summer, and would by its fragnance and lively appearance, greatly add to the beauty of a farm, and the pleasure of a country life. Land, like money, should never be permitted to lie idle-it is always fit for some useful purpose, if not for one, for another ; and...
