To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 February 1827

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR,-I felt much hurt in perusing in your last number a Very severe satire on Patrick Connolly, surgeon, al Sydney. It is true that that unfortunate Gentleman came to this Co- lony a prisoner, and if the writer had added thal he was an Irishman, and a very irritable one too, all this I could readily admit ; but when he anonymously attacks his professional character, and states he is a " charlatan," or quack, and an " imposter" I must beg to say, (in his absence) that these arc base and ma!ir j cious falsehoods, which his long standing com* mission in the 4riny and diplomas roundly pontradict;. I haye known him several year? ; he was operating Surgeon at the Sussex General In- firmary, under Sit Matthew Tierney, Bart., Phy siciau to His Majesty ; I have experienced his skill on my own person, and been eye wit- ness (being a subscriber to the Institution) to him operating-on others ; and, whatever may be his faults in private life, this is the fust...

To Hie Editor of the Colonial Times. Sin,-Having been informed, that a cha- racter, for intrusive self-importance, oitieious, and unhappy counsel, &c. as pounrayed in a, letter signed Ru&tieus, in the last, u'uiubur of your Paper, has.been appropriated to himself by a certain sensitive Member of this Colony, who has felt extremely indignant at the freedom of iepresentation, with which it/is his pleasure to fancy, he is, there handled, and that he has charged the Gentleman wh6 handed you my letter (containing the obnox- ious representation) with being its author ; I feel it incumbent on me, for the justilu-a-' lion of that individual, to assure you, that he had, neither act, or part, in the kümpoMtiou' thereof, and was even ignorant of its con- tents. Should this sensitive Member, who, if we moy judge from his thus laying claim to public and unassigued property, considers himself at least blessed with merit, to war- rant his exclusive appropriation thereof, not think ...

The Nations. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 February 1827

The Natives. We have to notice, that two men, one the servant to Mr. Griffiths, and the other to Mr. Drant, at Launceston, have been missing for some time. There is every legitimate cause to fear that they have been murdered by the Natives, as the bones of Mr. Drant's man, and one of his boots, have since been found. A spear appears to have passed through the boot. Mr. Griffiths's servant has as yet not been found. When shall we have the   pleasure to notice some step having been taken to put a stop to these occurrences, the ?reci-? of which so often have, of late, disfigured our pages? When shall we be able to hear that the stock-keeper may collect his herd, and the shepherd his flocks,, without the   danger of being murdered? It is really     appalling to hear such reiterated tales of blood - to hear of our fellow Colonists and servants falling the victims of these   barbarous people. We must again repeat what we hav...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 February 1827

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR, - I am sorry to observe your interest- ing Paper should be made the vehicle of falsehood, but such was the case the week before last, ¡n a paragraph respecting a "sin- gle insect" which was stated occasioned a loss to Mr. Whitfield of "eleven bushels of wheat in two days," A more gross untruth, Mr. Editor, was never published; yet, if Mr. W.   imagines "that single insect" had been tast-   ing his wheat, I would recommend an effec- tual plan to prevent "the insect" getting   into it in future. Let Mr. W. discharge a twelve-pounder at it - mark, nothing less than a shot of twelve pounds will do, and I am convinced that "destructive creature"   will never disturb his wheat again. But per- haps Mr. W. has not such a shot left in his locker; in which case he is to be pitied, par- licularly when it is considered what enor- mous expenses "Gentlemen farmers'' are at   before their whe...

You are perfectly correct in giving the tarn you did to the cause of offence; and I now as- sure that Gentleman myself, that Í had not the least intention of disparaging his brew- ery, or any thing else belonging to him. It was only meant as an unoffending jeu d'esprit.   If, however, it has the effect of rendering this young man a little more susceptible of what he affected in the goat business to despise, I mean-PuuLrc OPINION, 1 do not conceive that any very great hann will be done him. lie is _<ud to'have talked of that concern as beneath his notice, to pay ' altcnitoa to what such fellows as Bent could wiite of him.

Launreston News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 February 1827

Launceston News Extracts from Correspondence, dated Mon- day, the 19th instant : The eight unfortunate men, who were left for execution at this place, namely. Gill, Howe, Horsefield, Gurd, Ashford, Winches- ter, Tuffnall, and Haywood, underwent the dreadful sentence of the law this morning. The whole of the night previous to "their ex- ecution was spent in incessant prayer, and they died truly penitent. Gill warned the multitude to lead a sober and religious life, holding himself up asa dreadful example of leaving to the last moment, a preparation for death. A man, who had lain under sentence of death, for upwards of two years, for a mur- der at Norfolk Plains, received a free pardon last week. Mr. GEORGE W. BARNARD has just returned from King's Island; whither he has been, in order to ascertain its fitness for a Penal and Colonial Settlement. A most shocking accident has recently oc- curred.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 February 1827

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1827. BLACKSTONE, in his Commentaries, says — If there should happen any uncommon injury, or infringement of the rights before-mention- ed, which the ordinary course of law is too defective to reach, there still remains a fourth   subordinate right appertaining to every indi- vidual, namely, the right of petitioning the King, or either House of Parliament, for the redress of grievances. DE L'OLME, on the Constitution of England, makes this observation :— Speaking of the People, they may frame petitions to be de- livered to the Crown, or to both Houses, ei- ther to procure the repeal of measures alrea-   dy entered upon by Government, or to pre- vent the passing of such as are under con- sideration, or to obtain the enacting of new regulations of any kind, they may severally subscribe their names to such petitions. — The Law sets no restriction on their numbers. That mighty political engine, th...

I always understood that he had' a salary^ and many indulgences for conducting the operations of a portion bf tbe" Police. I am now staggered in that opinion; for Mr. Humphrey, the Superintendent of the Police, would neversufler him tobe absent from his duty, if that was the case. And that this Gentleman must bc aware that be is so, is as certain as my name is Anthony. Mr. Editor;?What is the reason that the December Bills have not been pa?d by the Commissary?.

The late Serjeant J.Broderick. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 2 March 1827

THE LATE SERJEANT J. BRODERICK   lt affords much consolatory satisfaction the numerous friends of the late Serjeant   Broderick, resident in this Colony, that his merits have been so very justly appreciated   in the Cape of Good Hope Papers. His filial duties to his poor disconsolate mother, Mrs   Free, of Clarence Plains, cannot be too much praised, and his many letters to his relations here, teem with evident marks of genuine   worth. He has established a character which time cannot efface ; and we hope may serve as an incentive to his countrymen, to copy so very fair and interesting an example. The following is the extract from the South Afri- can Commercial Advertiser, announcing his lamented death. The. Editor is in error, re- specting the place of his birth, as he was born at Norfolk Island :-         The following account of the late Serjeant   J. ...
