New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 March 1827

New Zealand. We last week reported the arrival at Syd-   ney of the ship Rosanna and cutter Lambton, belonging to the New Zealand Company, with various Wesleyan Missionaries on board, who miraculously escaped with their lives from that country. In order to put our Readers into the possession of the particulars of this extraordinary affair, we have been induced to make the following extracts from the Australian :—   The barque Rosanna, which came from New Zealandon Sunday night, brings up twenty-   five persons who were in the employment of   the New Zealand Company. A design it ap- pears1, was formed by the natives to seize up- on this vessel, during her stay at New Zea- land, where she has been for ten months. The hostility of the natives rendered it ne- cessary that tne Company's servants should sleep on board nightly ; and every man on board was obliged to take his turn in the nightly watch. The black chiefs were occa- sionally ...

Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 9 March 1827

Newspapers. Another Weekly Newspaper is about to be instituted at Sydney, upon Independent prin- ciples-making the seventh Newspaper in these Colonies. Its designation is to be the " Gleaner." Mr. Eager, who already carries on the printing business at Sydney, is to be the printer and publisher. Mr. Howe, just like a lunatic, has again altered the size and days of publication of the Sydney Gazette. It is first a weekly paper-next a twice-a-week- then a daily and, oh! the vicisitudes of human life, it is so weak, that it is now published no more than thrice-a-week. God help the poor fel- low that has to conduct it under Mr. Howe -his place must be no sinecure. The Go- vernment, it is now pretty well understood,   are quite disgusted with the wretched and abominable principles of that dirty rag. In fact, the Australian states, it will be the ruin of the Government. The Government have therefore taken the hint, for it is said that General DARLING intends to follow the examp...

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

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1827. We call the attention of our Readers, who have not seen the placards on the subject, to the advertisement which appears in our front page, calling a Meeting of the Inhabitants of the Colony, on Tuesday next, the 13th in- stant, at the Court House, Hobart Town, for the purpose of petitioning the KING, and both Houses of Parliament, for TRIAL by   JURY and a HOUSE of ASSEMBLY. The very short notice which is given of this Meeting, renders ten-fold energy neces sary. The attendance of the principal agri-   culturists and old Colonists is indispensible, if success is wished for, as with them will lie the greatest influence with the British Ministers, and we regret to see so few of that description sign the requisition to the Sheriff; but, from its being got up upon the spur of the moment, it might nearly be im- possible to have procured their signatures, which we are convinced will not be wanting to the Petitio...

Launceston News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 16 March 1827

Launceston News The Rev. J. Youl, is to be removed from his flock at Launceston, to the Military Sta- tion, at the Punt, on the plea that he ¡s a Mi- litary Chaplain, and must go with the Mili- tary, if required. The Launcestonians strong- ly oppose his removal, and are determined to resist and prevent it, if public opinion has any weight. The Rev. Gentleman is to be succeeded in his Clerical functions by the Rev. H. R.Robinson, M. A. Chaplain at New   Norfolk. This writes one of our Correspon- dents; - have a few remarks to make upon the subject, The Rev. Mr. Youl is the senior Chaplain of the Island. He is by no means a Military one, and if removed from Launceston, he ought to be placed at Hobart   town, as the duties of Head-quarters require two Chaplains.-We much question the lega- lity of depriving a Gentleman from his Minis- try, without an ostensible reason, and even then without the interference of the Arçhdea con, as the head of the Church, of whic...

Be- ring personally interested, 1 have observed ,with feelings of the deepest concern, the un- happy and impolitic line of distinction which incertain instances is drawn between the Emancipist and the Emigrant, and the party .prejudiced feeling of exclusion wJiich per- vades the Public (as they are called) Institu- tions. 1 do not mean to assert that this feel- ing is geneiai, but 1 believe I am not singu - lar in the remark, that a line of distinction ,has been drawn, and a spirit of exclusion in introduced and encouraged by persons who ought, from their situation in society, to have set\a more noble example, and from whom I should have expected better things. For instance, witness the packing and getting up, under ...

~ -HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1827. The ship Hugh Crawford sails on Sunday, and, we are happy to add, conveys to our most gracious King and the British Parlia-   ment, the prayers and petitions of the Colo-   nists of Tasmania, for the two grand bulwarks of our national peace and security-Trial by Jury and Representative Legislation. We cannot help taking a little credit to ourselves   on this occasion. We have for these last few   weeks been so urgent, nay clamorous we may say, on this subject, without vanity or self opinion, it is evident that our observa-   tions have had some weight on the public mind. We were convinced that the Colonists only required to be awakened to the neces- sity of such a step for it to be taken, and we never imagined, notwithstanding all we have said about it, that the vessel would be   suffered to sail without bearing these Peti-   tions to England.

Branch Bank at Launceston. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

îStancïj tfaitti at iLautimton» The paragraph which we inserted the week belore last, respecting a Branch Bank at Launceston, has occasioned, as we hear, a' considerable sensation. We trust that it has* not been misunderstood, for we should be very sorry to say any thing which was cal- culated'seriously to injure any establishment of the kind. In order to correct any mis apprebeusion which may have arisen, weieel it a duty incumbent on us to state, fhat we have not the slightest doubt of the responsi- bility of the Proprietors. What we have to find fault with is, that so heavy à demand should be exacted for transmitting monies from1 one side the Island to the other. ' Thiee percent, we certainly consider too much for persons to afford in the present state of the Colony ; but it may be urged in defence, that there is a great risk in sending money by the post, and enormous expence incurred by any other "means. This we must over- rule by the assertion, that money has'no bu- siness tobe...

Libels, Lawyers, Editors, and Tailors, It appears that the Sydney Monitor has been prosecuted, at the instance of onePash ley, a poor tailor, for a libel upon his cha- racter. The circumstances seem to be these. In a reporá given in the Monitor^ of an exa-" ruination ah c1 commitment of one Pashfield, for a felon J, the name was by some accident spelled Pushleyt Assoonas this eiror was [.discovered^the Editor of-the MouitoV sent a ' wittteu apology to the tailor, which was to be returned for insertion.

Sir,-The letter signed " J-i," which ap- peared in The Tasmanian of lasjt week, pur- porting to be in refutation of the; article lately in the Colonial Times, headed " Colonial Dis- tillation," presents such an assemblage of oonsense, downright ignorance and conceit, that it has induced me to reply to it. The motives which actuated it, appear, in my opinion, to be base,sordid,and unfriend- ly to the interests of th* CttsfiJ. Private in- terest and personal «shtMoge, are clearly de- picted in every line ; and it is, evident, that the writer is eitheraSpiritMercliant-and that the subject he replies to, touches his pocket, or that he is somejgnorant, opiniated, self willed, pragmatical prie of a fellow, who. with a few Dooks on politlcal'economy, and o great deal of impudence, thinks himself qua lined for a public writer.

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sin,-It has frequently caused me great uneasiness and anxiety, to observe how much females are exposed to temptation on their landing, I mean those who come out pri- soners. In the first place, if they are not assigned, they are huddled together in some building or other, under the pretence of being classified and protected from vice, while at the same time (they being put under the charge of an ignorant constable) the most disgusting transactions are carried on. I re- member one night walking by the building, called the School-house, in the Paddock, at the time the females were confined there ; when I saw the place surrounded by many fellows, who were feeing the constables and sentries to gain admission, while language and im- precations the most disgusting and appalling issued from within. The next day I men tioued the circumstance to several nerc who said it was useless to kick un a . ' about it, for no notice would be £ttlr of it. 1 therefore...
