To the Editor of the Tasmanian. [Newspaper Article] — Tasmanian and Port Dalrymple Advertiser — 2 March 1825

. To the Editor $f the Tmmanian. '* Sir, I read without much interest, the sentiments of a Letter inserted in your Paper of the %3d u!t. (signed ' An Ancient Briton/') until I came to his observation, that ** it is pretty well known that from the readiness, on all occasions, with which yon can obtain Hie silver dollar in lieu of a certain gentleman Will, his notes have not ihat neprociation which others iu general have.' This mode of particularising an individual set me about revising his letter, and endeavouring to identify his object in venturing his literary qua lifications to trie public gaze ; and I am disposed to think, Sir, that 'twas any thing but an inten tion to expose ' !he manner in which these bills are ForsTtn upon the Public' whirh induced his letter : he surely meant to uphold the man, not to -f expose the manner ;' for, after offerins* us a few truisms in regard to the old and hack ney 'd subject of the mutilated state of the cur rency bills — telling us that 'tis n...

To $16 Editor of Che Tasmaniatu ? The facts tending to elucidate the miserable srod im^iverlshecj state of our colooial currency, vvljich appeared in your Paper of the 9.3d uit. have in themselves too much truth to pass un noticed, without endeavouring, in some shape, id combat an evil shamefully notorious as respects system of cwjonial credit. But /is the means of at once crushing s^rae of these ' selt'-e reeled Bankers,*1, is pnly in. the power of a few indivi duals, and perhaps such power rests even iti ioine of these Qentlemen who complain bitterly of tj^e present system of cash payments, without considering ^iat they are the supporters of a currency 1 bat gabbers strength from ibe- assis- tance which they are inclined to lend ; conse o^utntty it is i heir province to discountenance ami tjfjnihitetc when the remedy is vested in in em selves.

To the Navel Officer of Port Dairymple. [Newspaper Article] — Tasmanian and Port Dalrymple Advertiser — 2 March 1825

To the Naval Officer of Port Dalrymple. Seeing the Alligator on shore last Sunday, on the Launceston Bar, reminds one of negligence of the Harbour Master, in not properly marking the channel of the river with stakes, which is done with so little comparative trouble. I am given to understand that this personage receives from the Colonial Government a salary of £50 the King's Stores; and a certain number of men     allowed, likewise victualled, - to do what? I should suppose to take proper care of the moor- ings - to mark the channel of the river as plainly as possible— and to see that the river is not in commoded with dead trees (which, by the bye, is too often the case), &c; instead of which   his time is employed in idleness and acts of inebriation. I am well aware, Sir, of the many reprimands and complaints preferred against him by yourself, as well as the Commandant;   but it is, I believe, considered that his useful- ne...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Tasmanian and Port Dalrymple Advertiser — 2 March 1825

MISCELLANEOUS. EXTRAORDINARY EFFECTS OF PUTREFAC- TION. — In the month of July 17 — , a very cor- pulent lady died at —— . Before her death       she begged, as a particular favour, to be buried in the parochial church. She died on the Wednesday, and on the following Saturday was   buried, according to her desire. The next day the clergyman preached her funeral sermon ; the   weather was uncommonly hot, and it ought to be   observed, that for several months preceding her death; a great drought had prevailed, not a drop       of rain had fallen, and consequently it was an uncommonly sultry season.             The succeeding Sunday, a week after the lady           had been buried, the Protestant clergyman had a very full congrega...

To the Editor of the Tasmanian. [Newspaper Article] — Tasmanian and Port Dalrymple Advertiser — 2 March 1825

To the Editor of the Tasmanian. Sir, I was passing along one of the streets in Laun cesion a few days since, when I observed a man in a yellow jacket and leathern cap, who was just before me, to drop a small fold of paper. I im mediately called to turn, ' Here, my man, you have, dropt something," and pointed to the     packet. " T'aint mine, Sir," was his reply. "You dropt it " I said ; but "t'aint mine Sir ,"     was all I could get from him, and he passed on. I was induced, from curiosity, to pick it up ; and while I was turning it over, to see if it had any superscription by which I could recognise its owner, I was accosted by a person on a sub ject of business, and unthinkingly thrust the paper into my pocket. It did nor occur to me that I was in possession of it until a day or two ago, when (returned home) I was out with my gun ; and, having occasion for wadding, was about to tear the paper I had taken from my pocket for that ...

By one of ihe Government vessels, which sailed on Sunday morning last, fifty prisoners were drafted for the new penal Settlement at Maria Island. They were escorted by a small party of soldiers, and accompanied by Peter Murdoch, Esq. (as Commandant, it is said), besides several Superintendents and Overseers. By a new Act or Council, passed at Sydney to regulate the licenses for vending spirits, wine, beer, &c. in New South Wales' and Van Die- men's Land respectively, the charge for a beer license is reduced to twenty dollars, and for a general license to one hundred dollars; that less   quantities than five gallons are not to be sold without a license; and that the Minister's sig- nature in behalf of each memorial for a license   will be held as a sine qua non !

EXPEDITION TO THE SOUTHWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Tasmanian and Port Dalrymple Advertiser — 9 March 1825

EXPEDITION TO THE SOUTHWARD. On the 3d of October last we took our depar-   ture from the district of Appin, accompanied by six servants, having a supply of provisions for sixteen weeks, and proceeded to Mr. Hume's station, at Lake George. On the 17th we con- tinued our journey in a South West direction, and the following day passed over a fine grazing country, which we named Macdougal's Plains, called by the natives Yarr ; and in the evening or the following day we arrived on the banks of   the Morrumbidgee, which we crossed on the 22d, and continuing our route to the S. W. over an open forest country until the 24th. When finding it impracticable to ascend the mountains in front, we deemed it expedient to leave our carts on the banks of a branch of the Morrum- bidgee with some heavy articles and salt provi- sions we could conveniently spare. It was not until the 29th that we discovered a passage over the mountains, which run nearly North and South, and on ...

MODERN IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tasmanian and Port Dalrymple Advertiser — 9 March 1825

MODERN IMPROVEMENTS, Amongst all the improvements of the age, none perhaps are more striking than those which have recently been made, and indeed are at pre ent making, in the language of ordinary life. It is not merely by the introduction of foreign words and phrases into the English tongue, nor the designation of places of amusement, or shops or carriages, by alien titles, that this great alteration is working, but by the adoption of     figurative phraseology and elegant expressions, which bid fair to rival the formal foppery of Euphenism. Who in these days ever reads of boarding   schools? They are transformed into academies for boys, and seminaries for girls; the higher classes are " Establishments" — a coach -makers' shop is a " Repository for Carriages' — a mil- liner's a ' Depot' — a thread-seller's an ' Empo     rium.' One buys drugs, at a 'Medical Hall.' wines of a ' Company' and shoes at a ' Mart' Blacking i...
