DEATH OF COMMODORE Sir James Brisbane, C. B. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 January 1827

DEATH OF COMMODORE   Sir James Brisbane, C. B. We regret exceedingly to be compelled to   announce the death of this truly independent and valuable Naval Officer. The melancholy   event took place about 10 o'clock on the morn- ing of the 19th of December, at his residence at Macquarie Place, Sydney, New South Wales, while his ship, the Warspite, 74 guns, was lying at Port Jackson. The Australian says,— "A     deep gloom pervades the Warspite—Officers   and Crew alike, deplore the serious loss, which   they have sustained by the death of their Commander. Sir James Brisbane was a good   Officer and a worthy man. The Colony has lost a friend—has lost one who would not have failed to have added to its celebrity, wherever he might have voyaged. In England, his opinions, and his expressions of admiration,   would not have been useless." Another Sjdney Paper says, that Capta...

[?]iratical [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 January 1827

Piratical Seizure. On Saturday night last, about 11 o'clock, some prisoners, it is supposed about twelve in number, escaped from the Barracks. - During the whole of the night, Constables were in search of them in all directions; but without effect. The next morning, it was   ascertained that they had taken a boat from the wharf, and proceeded down the river; and, as the colonial cutter Ellen, Mr. Purden, master, of Pitt-water, had sailed early that morning down the river, also, it was feared she would be piratically taken by the run- aways. In consequence of this, about 12   o'clock at noon, the Government brig Prince Leopold, under the command of Capt. Welsh, the Superintendent of such vessels, preceded by several whale-boats, and crews, together   with a party of soldiers, sailed in pursuit   of the pirates. It however appears, that   the wind prevented her from coming up with them; and, we are sorry to add, that the...

iTolcnmï «Ttmro. HOS ART TOWN: EMJ)aV, JANUARY 1% 1827. It has ever been our study as much as pos< sible to devote our attention and columns to such subjects as are immediately connected with either the happiness or interests of our fellow Colonists. We have had much to con- tend with, and much to endure ; in fact, we have had more political difficulties to encoun- ter, than all the other Journals in both Colo- nies. We have been reprobated, mis-spoken of, and incaicerated.

Thit That. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 January 1827

Chit Chat. Rumour states that Mr. Sorell, the Regis- trar of the Supreme Court, is about to be appointed a Magistrate. It is pretty confidently reported that the Act of Counril, for the benefit of Insolvent Debtors, which we mentioned last week, has passed. The report is prevalent, that Mr. Abbott, the Civil Commandant of Port Dalrymple, who, it is said, has long talked of resigning, is about to do so, and to take Mr. Hone's "Little Go," Anglice, the Commissionership   of the Court of Requests. We shall be hap- py to see this, as we think Mr. Abbott will be quite at home in the character of the Com- missioner, (having been for so many years Deputy Judge Advocate here), and that Mr. Hone should certainly be relieved from some of the numerous duties he has now to per- form. Another rumour is afloat about Mr. Bea- mont ; according to which, he is to be Re- gistrar of Deeds — an office provided for by the Act of Parliament, relating to the better administration of the affai...

Beatî) of Sit % lSrtíiíiattr;, »?<£.!& (From the Monitor.) It is with feelings of the most poignant re- gret, that we have to announce the death of Commodore Sir James Brisbane, Knight Com- mander of the Most Honourable Military Order of the Bath, which took place lastMou day Morning, at his Residence in Macquarie Place. In him, the Empire has lost one of her oldest and most gallant defenders :--In bim, the Royal Navy have lost one*of the bright- est ornament» of the Service :-In him, his Lady has lost a Husband, his Family a Fa- ther, and the world a Man ! N Rcquieseat in Pace ! The Funeral.-We were much gratified in w ¡tnessing this solemn pageant. Our plea- sure arose from more than one cause. First, that melancholy joy which causes us to ex- ult when departed worth appears to com- mand a due measure of public resppct.

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 January 1827

To Correspondents. We beg again to remind our Correspondents of our pledge respecting the manuscripts of those Communications with which we may be favoured, to destroy or burn them, according to the wish of the writers ; and, as is the me- thod of the John Bull, never to allow a name to transpire. Our columns are open at all times, to all parties, and nothing gives us more pleasure, than to see free discussion among the Public themselves, through the medium of our Paper. This is independence ; and this is what we like. At the same time, we would wish to refer them to our notice recently of a private signature, either feigned or real, to those ar- ticles, the manuscript of which, it is the desire of the authors to have returned to them, as this alone can entirely prevent the possibility of the Manuscripts falling improper hands. We have come to the resolution to insert nothing of a private nature, which is in no way connected with the interest of the Colony, with- out payment, and th...

Another Murder! [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 January 1827

Another Murder! The Black Aboriginal Natives have com- mitted another murder. On Wednesday morning letters reached town from New Nor- folk, bringing intelligence, that on Sunday   last, the 21st, Mr. Thompson's, J. P. shep- herd, at the Shannon, was barbarously mur- dered by the natives, while looking after his   sheep. This is not all. On the same day, this furious and savage race of people at- tacked Mr. Thomson's house there, and put three spears into the body of one of his men. One spear, fourteen feet long; entered his side, and came out near the spine. Some hopes, however, are still entertained for his recovery, although the poor fellow is labour-     ing under the most excruciating pain. We are happy to add, that a party of soldiers from the Clyde, are in pursuit of the savages, who have repeatedly said they will, sooner or later, murder every white man in the Island!!! -       &amp...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. (From the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 January 1827

siimmz rnwmm^ (From the Australian.) Much uneasiness is felt at Head Quarters, at our having been furnished with the " Cir- cular" calling together the experienced folks to sit in Council, and decide upon the mini mum rate of allowances, &c. to assigned ser- vants. This is puerile feeling, and very im- politic. We had three of the circulars for- warded to us ; and two of them were accom. parf1|(^with a request that we would publish our opinions on the subject, upon which the Gentlemen were to be consulted ; in order to prevent the Authorities from falling into error, and in order that the contemplated Board might have the benefit of considering the arguments employed on the general ques- tion. If ever thanks were due to us, they were due on this occasion, as we had given the Authorities the means of avoiding an egre- gious fault ; we have saved them the morti- fication of promulgatingsomeOrder or other, which wp must have pointed out to be ille- gal. Besides this, we have pr...

Police Intelligence. (From the Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 January 1827

Police Intelligence. (From the Gazette.) Lawrence Murray, who had rendered the community an essential service, in his exer- tions to apprehend the late band of robbers, entered a complaint against Mrs. Hill, a re- lation of Patrick Dunne, and wife of Barnard Hill, for abusing, and threatening him with bodily harm, for having been instrumental in taking bushrangers. This is an enormity so commonly exercised, by the worst characters in the Island, and tends, so materially, to check the intentions of the well-disposed, that we should rejoice to see the Magistrates armed with power, to punish, with its deserved seve- rity, a crime so general, and so vitally injuri- ous to the peace and safety of the people.   James Williams, at the Big Lagoon, Jericho, Henry Wright and John Banks, were commit- ted before T. G. Gregson, Esq. for trial at the Criminal Court, on a charge of stealing sheep from Mr. Hodgson, at the Lovely Banks. The Constables who were entrusted with the duty of...
