Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 11 December 1829

-         GREEK MARRIAGES-Marriages in Greece   are uniformly negotiated by proxy. A confidential female   friend is deputed by each of the parties, between whom an al- liance is contemplated, to arrange preliminaries. They settle   the terms of the contract, fix the dowry, and name the wedding day. The couple thus betrothed now send mutual presents,- that of the bridegroom being usually a lamb, accompanied sometimes by a silver distaff. If the parties are marriageable, the nuptials are contemplated immediately after this ; if not, time has no effect on the validity or strength of an engagement so contracted. During the marriage ceremony, the bride and bridegroom hold wax tapers in their hands, and wear the nup- tial crown, both being intertwined by the immortal amaranth.                 &am...

HOBART TOWN   DECEMBER 11, 1829.   Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palladium of   all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius.         'The long agitated case in the Supreme Court, respecting   the legality of the Warrant, under which Ikey Solomon was committed to Gaol, preparatory to his being sent to England for trial, has been productive of results, which were at first, unless we are much mistaken, altogether unexpected.— Among them, we hail as satisfactory in the highest degree, the noble stand made by Mr. GELLIBRAND, for the mainte- nence in its purest state, of the invaluable right bestowed upon Englishmen, by the Habeas Corpus Act. We consider that the arguments he so elaborately introduced, in support of the positions he assumed on behalf of his client, have done, and will do, muc...

Sydney Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 11 December 1829

Sydney Intelligence.   We never understood till the other day, that Lieu. Colonel SNODGRASS, the present Major of Brigade, was one of the most distinguished Officers under His Grace of WELLINGTON.   Among other exploits, he commanded the Portuguese Bri- gade at the storming of St. Sabastian, and although nearly   all were kilIed, he got into the town and helped to carry it. He is a Companion of the Bath, and is in possession of many medals of military merit.   Captain STIRLING'S port dues we consider calculated to work immense injury to the New Swan River Settlement, if the interest of the settlers there be thought of any moment ; for such excessive charges are sure to return on the settlement in the increased prices which will be demanded for commodi- ties, the discouragement to vessels from this and the sister Colony whence their supplies must for some time be derived, and the consequently diminished competition. As adverted to i...

View of the Town of Sydney. (From the British Traveller.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 December 1829

View of the Town of Sydney. , ' ,'. (From the British Traveller.)' . "J "\Ve this morning paid a visit to Mr. R. BUÜFORD'S Pano- ramic Exhibition of the Town and Bin ¡rons of Sydney. We understand that the painting, is not entirely finished, but ive have no hesitation in stating that there is already mure finish in many parts of this painting, than any thing ot the class we .. bave hitherto seen. The point of view is most happily chosen on an eminence opposite the town ; St. James's Church, lhe hospital, and ad- jacent buildings are finely contrasted hy the blue mountains and Botany Bay in the distance, and hy a very highly finished foregiound with figures. The judgment of this aitist has we think never been so fully shown as in this painting. Fidelity in views of this kind is of course indispensable. Theie is no room for invention, so far as buildings or principal objects aie considered. But the monotony of colour iu the buildings is admirably relieved, by sceneiy and highly painte...
