To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Mir. EDITOR,-The musical persecutions of my next door neighbour's, compel me to j* address you. The parties are, I believe, Brother and Sister. The Lady sings, as Bol. tom, the weaver, said he would roar 4< like any sucking dove," thumping away at ,the same time on a harpsichoid, spinnet, or some such jingling affair, accompanied by the Bro- ther, on a Kent bugle!!! Think of that, Mr. Editor, to a man of my kidney, who, if he were tried in the Court of Shakespeare, would be certainly set down 44 as fit for Tre son'sstratagems and spoils," andcertainly not to-be trusted. I need not mention any names, for there cannot be two families in this town, where so much discord can prevail.-By their remaining a little quieter, and your inserting this letter and epigram, a lasting obligation will be conferred, Mr. Editor, ¿II your old frieud, QUIDNUNC Musician sweet! I'm grieved to say, Your brother's, trumpets deaf'niug bray, . To me is not a fro...

The Bank Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

?$>'lÄwtfc Jftekiiiff.: Yesterday the half-yearly, Meeting of the Proprietors of this Establishment took place; A. F. KEMV, Esq. the President, in the Chair. We have the satisfaction to state, that the dividend declared was nearly twenty-nine per cent, it however appears that it was nominally less( than that of last year; but when the fact is known, that all the shares, two hundred in number, are now. actually taken up, it will thus he perceived that the dividend was larger than heretofore, because formerly the number of shares was consider- ably less- After the dividend was declared, the Directors and Proprietors who were pre- sent at the Meeting, passed a Resolution, increasing the salaries of the Officers of the Bank as follow : Mr. John Gardiner, Cashier, per ann. ¿£365 Mr. Hines, Accountant, ditto .250 Mr. Geiss, Collector, ditto. 85 Being an increase of 15 per cent, on their respective salaries, exclusive of house-rent, &c. for the Cashier.

iftótug tyc&vt* ano íLigíit ftom*. What's the use of it ? Tf ouble. trouble, what a world of it we have ; " man is bom to trou- ble"-" and all is vanity and vexation of spirit" -thus and thus it is written. There are the troubles of infancy, of youth, of manhood, of old age ! The troubles of poverty, the troubles of riches! The trouble of living and the trouble of dying! Who1h\as not bis trou- bles? who sees the end of &bem ? And yet, after all, what's the use of it ? This fretting and repining, this sorrowing and sighing, this moping and morning, making misery more miserable. In the name of common sense I say, what's the use of it ! Does it sooth pain, soften affliction, or ward off mis- fortune? Will it call back deceased friends, or prevent others from dying, or deliver us from poverty, or make us healthy, or melior- ate in one particular, our condition ?

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. (From the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

SYDNEY EXTRACTS (From the Australian.)   The Legislative Authorities of Van Die men's Land, sat in " close divan" for seveial Days, to determine whether the King's ap pointments of Mr. Scott, to be Surveyor Ge- neral, and Mr.Beamont, 'to be Clerk of Coun- cil, SHOULD BE CONFIRMED BY THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT. The Lieutenant Governor is reported to have said, that Mr. Çcott, though an efficient Surveyor, is not GENTLEMAN ENOUGH for the situation ! ; Mr. Scott, when Acting Surveyor (we be- lieve), had some land surveyed and measured to the Rev. R* Knopwood. AFTER the ap- pointment to the office of Surveyor General, reached Hobart Town, a charge was preferred against Mr. Scott, of having measured too much to the Reverend Gentleman ; and the charge which previously, it appears, was not thought of, is now become the subject of se- rious investigation.   Mr. ßurnett the Colonial Secrelary of Van Diemen's Land, has a salary of a thousand   per annum, and a...

(From the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

¿i (From the Australian.) ' \ * The PcOple of Van Diemen's Land, and the Lieutenant Governor, are as much as ever at variance, and seem likely so to continue. There is no disposition on the part of the lat- ter to abate one atom of that stubborn hosti- lity lo all that the mercantile aud oilier inte- rests of the Colony represent daily and hour- ly to him» to be beneficial. We must write him out of countenance--we must shame him into a reasonable line of policy, and into compliance with the reasonable wishes and views of the Colonists ; so that spite of him- self, the fag-end of his administration, (and that he must soon now'approach) may pre- sent one twinkling of liberality which may throw a partial lustre over a dark career.; and if it serve no other purpose,, may at least furnish one bright spot to make the " dark- ness (of the whole) more visible !" Call the Lieutenant Governor of Van Die.] men's Land " a well meaning man !" He may be so. Only he has a very odd way of showing h...

Colonial Distillation. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

Colonial Distillation. (Continued from the Colonial Times, Dec. 8.) It followed of course, that men were not so selfish as to swallow such dear luxu-   ries alone-social drinking, and in conse-   nuence, drunkenness therefore prevailed; and the loudest in their outcry against the inebriety of the first settlers, were the very gentlemen whose lands, flocks, and herds had been increased, by the retailing of the intoxicating potion. Notwithstanding past experience, prejudi- ces against cheap spirits by retail, still pre- vail in tne Colony-except in the minti of your Excellency. I am aware the Governor, from ten years discriminating observation, is a friend to unrestricted distillation, low du- ties, and an unfettered, unraonopolized sale, hy retail, as well as by whosesale, of spiritu- ous liquors ; and it is to your Excellency's experience on this head, that we settlersjio.w" look up, as being likely to influence the can- did mind of His Honor the Commission...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. [OPEN TO ALL-INFLUENCED BY NONE.] To the Editor of the Colonial Times. When I see men whose lives are spent in devoting their talents to the service of their country, and keeping down the lavish expen- diture of the public money, made the ohjects of attack by the creatures who have the ma- nagement ol what is called the" Government Official Paper," (a proper organ certainly for such a Government, " par nobile fratrum") it becomes the duty of every well wisher, both to this Colony and the Mother Country, to defend the parties attacked. It may perhaps   be said, the stupidity of the paragraph I am about to allude to, should be its protec- tion-it should so, only I seize it as an op- portunity of letting the author and other great little men know, that the Gentleman to whom they have alluded, before many months are over, will perhaps find it necessary to " advo- cate his narrow policy" upon some of the Pub- lic Works and salaries here, not forgetti...

Ship News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

Ship News. Arrived on Sunday last, from Port Jack- son, His Majesty's ship Success, Capt. Stir- ling, bringing £12,000 in British silver coin (which we understand to be quite new, dated 1826, and very beautiful), for the use of the Commissariat Department at this Station.— On Wednesday, she proceeded in prosecu- tion of her voyage of Discovery to a place called Rotness Island, off Swan River, on the North-western coast of New Holland, for the purpose of attempting to form another   British Settlement at that place, should Captain Stirling find it likely to answer the purpose. She will be out about three months. Rot- ness Island is in the same latitude as Sydney, and lies in a direct course for vessels between Europe and China. Should the establish- ment succeed at this place, it would be a great support to the Australian Government. She takes Mr. Fraser, the Colonial Botanist ; and 2 cows and a bull, a sheep and a ram, 2 goats, and 2 pigs, for the purpose of leav- ing t...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1827. In our Supplement this week, after a con »ideiable delay, we have given the conclu- sion of the letter of Mr. E, S. Hall to Gover noi Marqunrie, and Mr. Commissioner Bigge, on the subject of Colonial Distillation, the loi mer part of which appeared in our Paper of the 8th December, 1826. We there stated that the letter was entirely the sentiments which we felt on the subject, and that we had little more, to do than to lay it before the Public, and declare the opinions therein coimiined to be in unison with our own. But we would particularly observe, and call the attention of our Readers, and those in Authority, to the very forcible and conclu- sive arguments by which Mr. Hall shews that cheap drinking is opposed to diunkenness; and that there is more inebriety in places wheie spirits are the most expensive, than wheie they are made, and can be got for lit- tle or nothing. He instances a French army in a wine country-the crew of a British ves- s...

Chit Chat. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 February 1827

CHIT CHAT We have been informed, that the inhabi- ants of Macquarie-street have been raising a subscription for the payment of two private watchmen. Some people take upon themselves to say, that a certain Gentleman, holding a high office, is about to commence retrenching his expenses. God knows there is need of it on £1000 per annum. It is also rumoured, that the " Hope" brings Hopeless tidings to some of our great little men, who are between hope and des- pair- one thing is very certain, that the par- ties alluded to are all on the qui vive, let the cause be what it may, and a greater stir has been made among the courtiers than has been known for some time. We hear that a certain person, not 12,000 miles from Maria Island, thinks it " amusing" to be mentioned in the Colonial Times. We, beg to inform him, that we shall frequently do ourselves the honour of contributing to his mirth, if things continue as they are, for we like to please great folks - when they are pleased with truth....

" What, again to-day ?" said his Grace. « Where are btubbs, Hogsflesh, and Figgins, the females whom, were it not contrary to law, I should call the housemaids ?'' '" They are gone," said her Grace, u on a sketching tour with the manciple, Mr. Nichol- j Son, and his nephew." . j *« Why are these things not removed?" said his Grace, eyeing the breakfast table, upon which (the piece of furniture being of oak 'without covering), stood a huge jar of ho- ney, several saucers of beet-rootva large pot of half-cold decoction of sassafrage, and an urn full of bean juice, the use of cotton, su [ar, tea, and coffee having been utterly abo ¡shed by law in the year 1888. ** I have rung several times," said the Dutchess, " and sent Lady Maria up stairs into the assistant's drawing-room to get some of them to remove the things, but they have kept her, I believe...

Western Port. Extract from Captain Wright's Report, dated Western Port, 26th December, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 February 1827

WESTERN PORT. Extract from Captain Wright's Report, dated   Western Port, 26th December, 1826.   On arrival at this port, I immediately pro- ceeded to visit its extensive shores, and, after a careful examination, selected, in conjunc- tion with Captain Wetherall, what appeared to us the most eligible scite for a Settlement, and, indeed, the only one possessing the re- quisite advantages - good anchorage - fresh water - and rich open forest and meadow- land, in its immediate.neighbourhood. All the ground from the west of a line passing from Bass's River, due north, to the eastern arm of this port, including about five miles square, is of excellent quality, well watered by lagoons and small streams. On the north shore of this square, two miles east of Kanga- roo Point (on which a battery of two guns has been constructed) the settlement is now   established.   By the Master of the Dragon, I have for- warded a specimen of coal, procure...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. [OPEN TO ALI-INFLUENCED BY-NONE.] To the Editor -of the Colonial Times. Sir,-It was with much,regret I observed in your extracts of last week, from that va- luable Paper, "The Australian," some re-   marks made by them regarding that most able Public Officer, Mr. Surveyor-General Scott. lt is there stated that Mr. Scott had surveyed and -measured some land to the Rev. R. Knopwood, and after his appoint- ment to the office of Surveyor-General had reached; Hobart Town, a charge was pre- ferred against him of having measured too much to the Reverend Gentleman. This is by no means the true version of the story. Mr. Knopwood's land at Cottage Green; having been surveyed and measured some 20 years ago, long before Mr. Scott, as is well known, was even of an age to survey, his crime, if it can be so called, is this. He   was some few months back ordered to re- survey Mr. Knopwood's grant. After mea- suring, he found it contained several ac...
