Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 5 January 1827

Letters to the editor. SIR, - I believe it is generally understood, the late sweeping Act of Council, with its pains and penalties, respecting the sale, &c. of spirits, was intended by its framers, amongst other desirable ends, to suppress sly- grog shops, the keepers of which, are too frequently the receivers of stolen property; and   to prevent the disgusting, and abominable   scenes of intoxication continually to be met with, not only in the towns, but also throughout the couhtry districts, wherever there is 'a spirit mart. However good the intention   of this Act may be, I believe experience has already shown, that it will never have the desirable effect. I would simply ask, are sly gr0g-shops reduced in number, or are those scenes less frequent now than before the Act was passed. No; on the contrary; they are   daily encreasing; and why? the only persons who pay tbe least attention to the Act, is the generality of resp...

Sandy Bay Races. The above Races, which took, place on Mon- day, New Year's Day, were most numerous- ly and respectably attended. At an early hour the road across the fields which led to the long sandy beach of Great Sandy Bay was crowded with people of all descriptions. who flocked to watch the retiring of old Ocean's wave below the sands on which the sport was to be. Just about the time of low water the beach was thronged with persons of both sexes, mounted and unmounted among the most distinguished or which, we noticed Mr. Charles Arthur, Private Secretary     to His Excellency; Major Turton, Captain Jebb, and Dr. Jones with most of the other Officers of the 40th Regiment now in Hobart Town ; Drs.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 5 January 1827

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1827 At the beginning of a New Year, it is cus- tomary with most people to look back upon the past events of the late one, and for- ward with bright hopes on the one they have just entered. In doing this we shall be very brief ; as the past has been such that we can- not look back upon it with any feelings of pleasure, and the future presents no appa- rently cheering prospects. During the last year, it is true bush-ranging, which had ar- rived to such an alarming and destructive   extent, has become annihilated ; but to ef- fect this, what have we been compelled to witness? Day after day the dreadful pro- cession of the Sheriff, proceeding to demand some unhappy wretch to expiate his crimes by an ignominious death. Sheep-stealing, however, still continues, and we fear is like- ly to continue, notwithstanding the numer- ous melancholy examples which have been made of those depredators, with their asso- ciates ...

Glorious uncertainty of the Law. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 12 January 1827

<ftlrmoit£ uitm tainty of tíje íívaü). - Our Readers are aware, that upon the last trial of Mr. Bent, for libel, the only proof of printing and publishing was the production of a Newspaper, without shewing where it was printed or published, or from whom it came ; but the case was assisted by Mr. Evan Henry Thomas, as to the delineations in the unicorn's tail. At the trial, and afterwards in arrest of judgment, it was forcibly urged by our Coun- sel (Mr. Geelibr and), that there was not suf- ficient evidence to go to the Jury of the print- ing and publishing ; and various cases were quoted to shew, that we ought to have been acquitted, but the Chief Justice Pedder ruled otherwise, and inconsequence we have suf- fered sir months' incarceration in the Gaol of Hobart Town, and/have been compelled to pay a fine of £300 sterling, together with law and other expenses, amounting to nearly £600. The best of Judges are liable to err; and it is clear to us, that if we had been tried...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 12 January 1827

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN :   FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1827, The extreme depression of trade under which this Colony was for some time past been suffering has been such as to excite the most intense interest amongst the mercantile portion of the community. A considerable check has been given to speculation, owing to the disappointments which those who have exported wool, mimosa bark, &c. have expe- rienced ; but, notwithstanding this, it does not appear to be quite annihilated. In our last, our Readers have no doubt perceived an adver- tisement, calling a Meeting of the Merchants, Traders, and Settlers, at the Ship Inn, for purpose of considering the expediency of exporting a cargo of Tasmanian wheat on the ship Sir Charles Forbes, now lying in the Harbour. This idea was first suggested, in consequence of the master of that vessel having offered to take a cargo of Colonial produce to Rio de Janeiro, and to return laden with the produce of that country, for the sum ...

Executions. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 12 January 1827

Executions. It this week becomes our duty to record the execution of the dreadful sentence of the Law on those unhappy men,whose lives have become forfeited for their crimes.– On Monday morning at 8 o'clock, the tolling of the minute bell from the steeple of St. David's Church, announced the arrival of the messenger of death – the Sheriff. In about 20 minutes after, six of the unfortunate men were brought upon the scaf- fold, where they remained for some time in earnest prayer. The prisoners were – Robert Grant, George Bentley, and William Crest, for sheep-stealing ; William Evans, assault- ing and robbing old Sayers, the broom-maker ; Peter Rice, shooting at Swift; and Patrick Dunne, bushranging, the last of the old gang. On coming on to the scaffold, Dunne, who was habited in a singular vestment, resembling a shroud, came forward to the front of the plat- form, and, waving his hand, exclaimed to the people assembled – "God bless you – God bless you all, – and God bless me."

. To the Editor lof the Colonial Times. sir,-In the last Govern ment Gazette, cer* tain strictures, animadverting with much se« verity on the conduct of the Roman Catho lies of Hobart Town, Were very studiously inserted, and every unwarrantable exertion practised to convert the performance of a hu« mane and charitable act, in affording the rights of sepulchre to two unhappy Irishmen, who expiated, by the forfeiture of their lives, the crimes committed by them against the Laws, to factious principles, ana participa» tion of the heinous offences, for which they deservedly suffered death. In order to place this subject in a clear point of view, and to obviate the effects of wilful mis-representation,, and'false impres- sions sought to be excited, the following state* ment will suffice':-Dunne add Evans, dying Roman Catholics, their bodies were interred in the Roman Catholic ' burial ground ; and the Irishmen, with,,that generosity peculiar to their country, procured coffins for their r...
