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

-000" To the Editor of the Colonial Times. . Mr. Editor,-There is nothing that ought to excite the Legislative attention, so much as the education of the rising generation, particularly in a Colony like this. Here, it is talked about a good deal certainly, but un- fortunate! v it is only talked about. No effec- tive plan has yet been resorted to for the be- nefit of the children in the country. The es- tablishment of District Schools, which has been strongly recommended, seems to be to- tally stopped, and the Districts in which were Schools but a short time since, are now without ; from what cause few people are ac- quainted. But you may rest assured, Mr. Editor, that the following gre the most pro- minent:-In the first place, the small salary received by the masters is not sufficient to support the situation, so as to obtain that re- spect and attention from the inhabitants of /the District, so essentially necessary, which induces them to leave it, if a better situation offers. And...

Colonial Distillation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 8 December 1826

(JTolaniát titillation. 1 We wera happy some time since io'iep our contemporary, the Government Gazette, ta- king the right side of the question ^respect- ing the, importation of foreign spirits.-It is " consummation devoutly "to lîç,, wished," that foreign spirits shop Id- be in lariat de- gree discouraged, and Colonial distillation in a greater degree encouraged. \Ve.have,always been friends to Colonial Distillation, and al- though fora length of time we have been silent on the subject, we are no less the friends to it, now. It is a pursuit so valuable-a speculation so important-and an undertaking so useful that we can never cease to be strenuous in our advocacy of it, until we see it universally a doptedand established throughout the Colony. But as one very necessary preliminary we must observe, that to effect any real benefit to the revenue or the manufacturer, the very high duty now imposed on Colonial spirits must be removed. We have no hesitation in speaking thus openly and d...

Government Notice. Colonial Secretary's Office, Nov. 19, 1826. THE series of Outrages which have of late been perpetrated by the Aborigines of the Colony, and the wanton Barbarity in which they have indulged by the commission of Murder, in return for the kindness, in nu- merous instances, shewn to them by the Set- tiers and their Servants, have occasioned the greatest pain to the Lieutenant Governor,   and called for his most anxious Consideration of the means to be applied for preventing the repetition of these treacherous and san- guinary Acts.   His Excellency bas uniformly been anx- ious to inculcate a spirit of forbearance to- wards the Aborigines« in the hope that con- fidence and cordiality might subsist and be conducive to their improvement and the secu- rity of the Colonists, but it is with extreme regret he perceives a result so contrary to his hope and expectation. An impression however still remains that   these Savages are stimulat...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 8 December 1826

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1826.       In directing the affairs of a State, it has   always been considered a matter of primary importance, that the orders or decrees, which may be issued, for the better government, or -protection of the people, should be express-   ed in the clearest manner so that they, may be at once understood by the meanest sub- ject. This has always been the distinguish- ing feature in the early history of every state, and subtleties of speech, have only been in- troduced as it has advanced in refinement   and luxury.   To"issue'orders which involve the happiness, oriivesof subjects, in language which is mys- terious or unintelligible to- the "majority, very, much resembles the conduct.of- an ancient Monarch, who affixed the tablets of the laws ? so high;* thatthe people could not read them, We: have but one plain undeyiating path to p...

Ship News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 8 December 1826

SHIP NEWS. On Friday evening last, the Government brig Amity, Captain Hanson, bound from Port Jackson, for King George's Sound, put into port in stress of weather. In a heavy gale of wind, which carried away her main-boom, she parted company with His Majesty's sloop- of-war Fly, Lieut. Fisten, R. N. commander,   both destined for King George's Sound, there to establish another British Colony. They had both experienced very strong westerly winds, and had also been driven into Port Dalrymple. - Captain Lockyer, of the 3d Regiment, proceeds to King George's Sound, as the new Commandant there; together with a detachment of the 39th Regiment, and a number of prisoners. The brig Dragon has also proceeded from Sydney, to form a similar establishment at Western Port; having on board Captain   Wright, of the 3d Regiment (formerly Com- mandant at Macquarie Harbour), as the new Commandant.   Sailed on Sunday last, the ship Leda, Cap- tain Northwood, for P...

Count [?] Perouse. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 8 December 1826

Count De la Perouse. We last week mentioned having received some interesting information, which appeared   to throw some light on the fate of the unfortu-   nate French Admiral, Count De la PEROUSE, and pledged ourselves to give a detail of the circumstances this week. The following state- ment we have been favoured with, and, as we can place dependence in the veracity of our Correspondent, we lay it before the Public as we received it :-       "On the 8th of January, 1810, I was sent on shore with several other men, from the ship Sydney Cove, Captain CHARLES M'LARREN, at the South Cape of New Zealand, in order to procure seal skins. After leaving the ves- sel, I made towards the shore, and was some distance from it, when it began to blow a gale of wind directly offshore. This forced me to go into a Bay near the Cape, contrary to my wish, as I had passed it before, and saw that it was iron bound, having no beach. -I pr...

[OPEN TO All—INFLUENCED BY NONE.] To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 15 December 1826

-^-r¡~^ [Opejí to All--Influenced by None.] Ta the Editor, of the Colonial Times. bin,--Some circumstances have occurred which induces me to intrude upon you a few observations, which 1 should be glad to see inserted in your valuable Publication^ if you think them worthy. In the hrst place, that man might justly be considered a patriot, who from a point of observation should dis- cover circumstances injurious to the public welfare, and, afterwards by a timely state- ment or zealous activity, should cause the evil to be eradicated, such a man would de- serve as well of his country as a General, who had gained a victory. We might pos- sibly have many such in this Colony ; but we cannot expect them yet of native growth. Therefore the interregnum, if it can be so 'designated, might be generously filled up 'by same of those who have.madelhe country. their by adoption.' ^ndjîn the second place* I lieg leave to'point'out» that'théió4nceAáf a Magistrate is certainjy, if,jprop.erly.xonsiider...

From the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 15 December 1826

dfvoin tfje australian. The new rate of fees, which it is intended should be exacted at the Police Office, will very shortly be made known. It is said two shillings will be charged for a summons. The demand hitherto has been three and six- pence. Two shillings sterling are an hun- dred per cent, on the English Police Office charges-charges which have at all times been a source of complaint to subjects of England. Justice must be paid for. This seems to be a maxim as strongly interwoven with the notions about dealing out justice, as with the notions about dealing it out impar- tially. Paying for oaths, and payings for summonses, and paying for copies ot deposP1 tions, and paying for Court expenses, as they are denominated, are all equally objection- able, and a reproach upon our English police system. A very full meeting took place of the Com- mittee of the Chamber of Commerce, on Tues- day last, for the purpose of forming a society for procuring bech-le-mer. At the meeting, we hear,...

5 f/rROM A OOltllEStONDENT.] 1 am happy that my Communication ap Eeared in your last Paper, especially as I eljeve that it has already had some eftect. This morning the foreman celled at the house of one of the Jury, and solicited him to at- tend the adjourned Inquest on Saturday next, no doubt by the Coroner's request. Really Mr. M.'s conduct, as a public ollicer, is so absurd and reprehensible, that it requires an immediate check; and the most effectual way of doing that is, by an Independent Pi ess.

[from a correspondent.] 'Itie catt of G. Thompson, Esq. J. P. was robbed last week, within live feet of Mr. Reid's window, at Bothwell. i\5r. Scott's house was attacked on the'30th of Novem- ber. The windows having been forced, the villains endeavoured to take away several trunks and cases, but on Messis. Macra and Catnpbell coming to the window, two shots were fired at them, and the robbers retreat- ed, probably fearing that the sentries, who weie within 500 yards, would hear them. Oh Sunday, the 3d of December, the house of Mr. Reid, at Bothwell, was lobbed of two bags of sugar, (Government pioperty) one fiikin of butter, a case of spirits, a laige quantity of Edinburgh ale, and a vaiiety of other articles. What is very extiaordinary, is, that the Maglstiates of the district, al- though a clue toone of the robberies was af- forded, took no information upon oath, and it is generally supposed, that the secuiity of these robbers, in a great measure, exists in the inefficiency of the ...

The Black Natives. [From a correspondent.]   On Friday evening last, the 8th instant, Mr. Laing, the Chief District Constable at So- rell, received information that Black Tom, the native Aborigine, commonly called Birch's Tom, was encamped within about one hundred yards of a hut on Mr. Laing's farm, occupied by a man named Robert Grimes, near the Brown Mountain. Mr. Laing left Sorell at 11 o'clock, p. m. with a party of four soldiers of His Majesty's 40th Regiment, and arrived at Grimes's hut, a little before day-break, on Saturday morning ; and at day- light, they proceeded to the spot where Tom and his party lay, and got upon them unper- ceived. They secured Tom and his com- panions, consisting of four other black men, four women, and one male child ; who made no resistance ; neither had they any weapons or dogs with them. On being asked where his dogs were, he replied he had lost them. The natives were then conducted to Sorell Gaol, where they now remain, until order...
