Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 February 1827

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1827. '. % breach of the Law ought always to be visited with a due punishment; and a deri ¦ .?lection from the rules of society ought cer- tainly not to be without its deserts. But wheu-we see the very letter of the Colonial Regulations broken, in open defiance to'de- cency and decorum, and that too by a man who is placed in a situation tor the preven- tion of vice, how much more severe ought the punishment to be. A man who is set up foran example of virtue, and as a scourge for crime, does more injury to the morals of the community by his fall from the. path of rectitude than twenty thieves, particularly .among the ignorant, who are ever ready to excuse their conduct, by bringing it to the touchstone of comparison with that of their superiors. We have during the last wewk been considerably pained to learn that a person holding a high situation in the Con- stabulary,. has had one of his assigned tenants living on his own hands, some dis- tance up the...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 February 1827

To the Editor of the Colonial Times.   Sir, - The following tender ditty I found in the window of my Kitchen, a day or two back, lt is quite sufficient to melt the soul of a saucepan; and I trust by your inserting it in the Colonial Times, will have the same effect upon my cook (a great speller, I was about to say reader, of your excellent paper), and prevent the dreadful catastrophe contem- plated by the unfortunate "Neddy." As a   a word of advice to him, should it not "mol- lify, his Molly," he had better keep on dry land, getting another and more affectionate deary, unless he wishes to be thought a Neddy by nature as well as by name. Ode to Molly.   Oh! why does my heart give sich lots of hupevings?   And why does my bussum go up and down   so?   'Tis bekase, cruel maid, you're so full of de- ceivings,     To perform all you swore, you ne'er come   for to go. &...

The Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 February 1827

The Natives. No tongue can tell with what poignant feelings we are again compelled to take up this distressing subject, and to record in the annals of Tasmania, another outrage commit- ted by these savage people, who, instead of growing more friendly with the whites, are on the contrary every week taking a more formidable position, and assuming a more threatening and terrific aspect. What we   have heretofore said respecting the removal of the blacks to King's or some other Island adjacent, must ultimately be followed, if it is not the wish of the Government to see   continual slaughter and bloodshed. We therefore again beg of the Lieutenant Governor not longer to delay the step on which so much of the safety of the Colonists depends. On Tuesday last, Mr. Talbot's hut, at St. Paul's Plains, was attacked by a party of the blacks, who speared two of his stock-keepers - one so severely, that little or no hopes are entertained of his recovery; he was taken &...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 February 1827

i'srawiffï mwm®> We have received a file of Sydney Pa- pers to the 29th ult. The Australian of the 27th give1« a report of a Public Meeting convened on the preceding day, pursuant to a Requisition signed by 24 landholders and others, for the purpose of petitioning the King and the two Houses of Parliament, for those inestimable blessings-Trial by Jury, and a House of assembly. Mr. W. C. WjsNTWORfH's speech contained the principal essence of the Meeting. " The Magistrates of the Colony," he said, " had expressed au opinion that the Colony was ripe for the extension of Trial by Jury in the Suprême Com t-and no one had ever had the hardihood to maintain a different .one. The Colonists were loud in their re piobation of the Criminal mode of trial in the Supreme Court. In that. Couit there was no such thin» as peremptory challen- ges, besides it, was an expensive mpde of trial which the Colonists were called upon to pay for. As a Military Jury, com- posed of seven Members, wpre not li...

(From the Australian, Jan. 17.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 February 1827

(From the Australian, Jan. 17.) A garbled statement having been published   respecting the seizure of a ship at the Isle of France, we subjoin the following, which lately reached us from that quarter, and which con- tains a succinct and true account of the trans- action- It is from one of our Correspondents at the Isle of France:-" We have had," says the writer, " a second edition of the Almorah businesss lately here. A Portuguese ship brought teas, &c. from China, was allowed to enter and sell her cargo; the Commodore ar- rived soon after and seized her. An open rup- ture with the local government was the conse- quence; the ship was proceeded against here, and the prohibited artices condemned, with   costs. The ship was restored under the new Colonial Trade Bill. But the claimants were allowed demurrage for the detention, which will amount to more than the seizors' propor- tion of the prize. Some of the rude John Bull sort here, think this an extra...

Boring for Water. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 February 1827

Moving for winter. "i Which occupies the attention of the Sydney ^people so much at this moment, and would .be so desirable here, seems a process thorough- ly .understood, both theoretically and practi- cally, by Mr. Degraves, of this town, to 'whom we are indebted for the following parti-, 'culars :-~ '. In the Duchess of Buccleugh's garden, at Richmond, Mr. Degraves superintended the .sinking of boring-rods to the depth of 364 feet, when the finest rock water imaginable began to issue, OG feet above the surface of . the i ground' ; from whence, through a Içaden-scr viec pipe, a íeseryoir at the top of hert Grace's house is constantly supplied with, wat er, and from thence the garden, and '«Ml the, rest of tlie premises. y* The Marquis of Stai>fqrP was in consé- quence induced to try a similar experiment iu his gardens,'which Mr. Degraves superinten- ded with equal success ; for, after having bored to the depth of 353 feet, the water rose 51 feet above the surface, affording au ...

Original Correspondence. [OPEN TO ALL-INFLUENCED BY NONE.] To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 February 1827

Original Correspondence   -   [Open to Age-Influenced by None.] - To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-I perçoive in a Communication in your last week's Paper, signed " Quidnunc," an allusion is made to a Gentleman, which is both uncalled for and untrue ; I mean Mr. Dumaresq, the acting Surveyor-General, who is there called " a wise man from the East, whose merits most probably the whole Colony will be puzzled ever to discover." I must beg to inform "Mr. Quidnunc that he is quite wrong in his ideas of Mr. Dumaresq, and I am well convinced he does not know him, or he could not write as he does. Although I perfectly coincide with your Correspondent, that Mr. Scott has been most shamefully treated, I cannot see how any blame can at- tach to the other Gentleman, who only acts as he is directed, and who is ever ready tp oblige any of the Colonists ; and his very affable conduct must convince any one who has once spoken to him, that he is ready to promote, b...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-Having noticed in your Paper of last' week, Captain funster's intention of shipping on board the Hugh Crawford, a quantity of Colonial wheat for Rio, you are now re- quested to inform your Readers, and through the same medium, that though such was his purpose, having indeed gone so far towards it, as to offer in conjunction with Captain Langdon, a dollar per bushel for six thou- sand bushels, which having been refused, the latter Gentleman has now determined on going direct for England, and no proposed advantages (it,is probable) will induce him to change his mind. How the Settlers of Yan Diemen's Land could have been so wilfully blind to their own interest, us to decline the liberal proposals of these Gentlemen, forfeiting as they have thereby, the advantages oí a.ready, and per- haps annual market for their wheat, is toine a problem ot \ery difficult solution ; anti aware as I am, that this country alfords no advantageous market for its su...

Van Diemen's Land. (Frin the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 February 1827

Van mtnmi*$ ?imft (I'ropi the 'Times») The Colonial Times is a newspaper printed at Hobart Town, in. Vau Diemeu's.Land, and like other newspapers deals in pubjic discus- sion, lint, mt'ii of place and ollice^iio mat tor where they may be stationed,, ha ve a sort of instinctive antipathy to the Pres,s, The fact is, we are apprehensive, that authority feels jealous of opinion.

Functionaries of nil nations are incensed at this ; they act by will, and pre importuned by argument.

Hence are the whole rabble of Governors, Secretaries, Clerks, down to Constables and Bailiff's fol- lowers, rendered peculiarly soreandsnap pish by the movement...

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1827. Among our Sydney intelligence will be found a brief report of the proceedings of a Public Meeting of the Colorfists of New South Wales, for the purpose of petition- ing His Majesty and Parliament for those two birth-rights, and unspeakable blessings of every Englishman-Trial by Jury and Taxation by Representation. The Magistrates have expressed their de- cided opinion, that the elder Colony were ripe for these extensions of privilege. Mr. Wentworth admits in his speech, that the Military Juries of New South Wales - " have never been tried, and no man has ever come into the Criminal Court, with the whole weight of the Government opposed to him." If, under such circumstances, the Colony of New South Wales is ripe for Trial by Jury, where the effects of the want of it have never yet been experienced, and that it was only the dread of its being so, . which occasioned them to pray for this grand National Bulwark to prevent it-how muc...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times.   "'Sir,- Referring to the conversation which took place this morning, I have now to call on you for the writer of the letter, signed 'Quidnunc,' which appeared in your   Paper of Friday, last, in the postscript to which I consider myself used in a most scan- dalous manner.

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-Many attempts have been made through the medium of your valuable publi- cation, to relieve unfortunate men confined for debt. There is something so singular in the following case, you may not deem it un- worthy of insertion.   There is a man now under confinement for debt in Launceston Gaol, who has been there three years and seven months, and for the last two years without the means of support for himself and family, except the small al lowance from Government, viz: 1¼ lb. of     bread and ¼lb. of meat per day. This man   can obtain no allowance from his creditor, because he is under execution from the late   Lieutenant Governor's Court. Where is the   Act of Council from Port Jackson-it points out no such exceptions, and I should suppose if our Supreme Court can hold him, they have the same power to order him a support   from his detaining creditors;...
