Pound Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

Poind Rates. From the Govenment Gazette of last week we copy the following:-       li Complaints daily reach us respecting the pounding laws. Cuttle are pounded and trespass-money of Is.per bend charged,upon them, besides the regular pound fees. We, of ourselves,are unable to say whether tre.s pass-money can be charged for cattle feeding on 'unfenced ground, or we should be hap- py to publish the full regulations in oiir columns for general information. The ques- tions arise "Whether a pound-keeper most send notice to the pel son whose cattle are impounded i " What he should charge per mile for so doing ? '/'What he is to be paid for feeding during the days the cattle remain in pound.' " How long they are to be kept w the yard before being turned out to graze f ' " How many Lours a day should cattje In that Situation be out ? .; " ' " And is the pound-keeper entitled lo charge poundage money on every head for every day the cattle may be in the ...

Mechanics Institution. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

i&rtt)jiiitC0' Ünötittttion, A General Meeting of the members of the | \ Mechanics' Institution was held at the British Hotel, on Tuesday evening, the 20th instant, when upwards of 130 persons were present. ? The meeting was highly respectable, and a more general feeling or unanimity we never before witnessed on any occasion. Dr. Ross was unanimously called to the Chair., The Chairman stated to the Meeting the many ad- vantages likely to result from such an Insti- tution. W. Gellibrand, Esq. J. P. moved the 1st Resolution, that the rules now read for government of the Institution be adopted by the Meeting, Which he prefaced .by a veiy appropriate and energetic address, and expa-r tiated much on the good likely to arise from such an Institution; J. T. Gellibrand, E^q. in a very neat speech, seconded the R,esoIu tion.-Edward Lord, Esq'. moved the 2d Re- solution, that a deputation be appointed to wait on His Excellency the Lieutenant Go- vernor, to solicit His Excellency to be...

Macquarie Harbour. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

Macquarie Harbour. Advices from this settlement state, that many prisoners occasionally die there from the scurvy, owing to their having nothing but salted provisions, being unable to get vege- tables, and without fish of any description;   and also, that the treatment is most severe - one prisoner, known by the name of Scrummy Williams, having received 500 lashes, at dif- ferent times, 100 lately for robbing the stores. He at first received 75, when the Surgeon, Mr. Barnes, gave his opinion that he could not bear more; but for expostu-   lating while lying in the Hospital, he was   again taken out to receive the remainder of his sentence. The Govt. Gazette of last week says, that every attempt to escape is not only frustrated, but often attended with death; which is pretty well corroborated by the information we have received. There is no possible means of the prisoners abscond- ing overland, from the impracticability of procuring food in the ...

South Esk Punt. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

gouts IS«* ühmt. We have received several Communications fiom our friends at Launceston, respecting the exorbitant tharges imposed upon the 'Settlers in Glossing the South Esk, per the Punt ; but as these Communications contain some points which are not exactly suited lor the Public eye, we have consideied it most advisable lo embody the materials ni an original article upon the subject. It is well known that the South Esk is only fordable at certain seasons of the year ; and, after heavy rains, the river lises from 4 to 15 feet inthe space of 24 hours. The ne , cessity of electing aBridge,or providing some other means by which the communication with Launceston might be kept open, was apparent to Lieutenant Governor Sorell; but, as he did not possess either the powei, or tlie means of building a Bridge, he caused a Punt to be built at Perth, as a substitute, and established a military station at that place, under the command of a Lieutenant. The inconvenience and expense of this met...

Van Diemen's Land Company. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

ïjjro mtw\ï& Hamto Rompant»; We inserted lastweek a paragraph qpon the "Deration of the Van Diemen's Land Qom.pany, which, upon an attentive perusal, we are satis- fied contains a reflection upon the cufditoF the Company, and is calculated to disquiet the minds of the many persons who have purchased their bills. We have not the slightest hesita- tion in stating, that the credit of the Company bas been most fully supported by their agent, EdWVRd CuitR, Esq. and we find that their bills have readily been taken by the first Merchants of Hobart Town, at £1 per cent, premium. It was our intention only to have adverted to the policy of their operations, and not in the slightest degree to have at- tacked their credit, and w e express our re- gret that any obseivationsof ours should un- fortunately have borne such a construction. A most spirited and laudable enterprise has been entered into by Captain Briggs, who has pui chased the bl ig Caledonia of Captain Bell; which vessel he is...

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

Colonial Times.   HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1827. What can be the reason t The Deputation which waited upon His Excellency with the Petition to His Majesty, praying for a Trial by Jury and Legislation by Representation, has not been received ! 1 It appears that His Excellency was so particularly engaged with Mr. Cimit, the Agent of the Van Dieraen's Lfind Company, that he could not find time to liston to the Public. In noticing this, we have io express our deepest regret, that Hit Excellency should be so pressed upon with mental labour, as not to be able to unbend his mind from the more important topics be was so intensely fixed upon to that of the public opinion and wishes. It seems as if a spell was set upon the politics of Tasmania, which prevent the People and their Rulers from coming to a similarity of sentiment. We have been favoured with another let ter from the Crown Solicitor, intimating to us, that the recently spoken of ex qfficio Information, which has ...

Suspension Bridge. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 23 March 1827

^U0pettöion JStföge. F[Fkom a Correspondent.] ,] The project ol the so long talked of bridge over the Derwent, at New Norfolk, seems» nearly to have fallen to the ground ; but in the furtherance of a work or such public uti- lity, public suggestions ought as much as possible to be encouraged ; and it is the duty of every one to keep alive the thought of it as much as possible. I would therefore pro- pose that the bridge to be erected at New Norfolk should be an iron chain suspension bridge. Those which have beeji erected in Gieat Britain, are, to speak in plain English, nothing more or less than chain cables, which are hooked to staunrheons firmly fixed in buttresses or piers ; these chains are linked together by iron bars passing through the links, and the whole again i» steadied by chains passing transversely, from the oppo- site sides -of the centres of th« arches (as I may call them) to the buttresses. The two parallel rows of staucheons > on the top of each buttress (to whic...

Launceston News. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 30 March 1827

Launceston News [From our Correspondents.] The rain has set in here, with every pros- pect of a continuance. Some Settlers have not got in all their harvest yet, owing to the late unprecedentedly wet season in sowing   time, which prevented the seed-wheat from being all in till late in November. One of Mr. Gibson's sons has met with an accident, while riding, which has endangered his life. - The whole of the towns-people, more or less, are ill, being poisoned with bad water. The brig Dottrell, which brought the tea here, in getting out of the Tamar, has struck upon the rocks, and sustained serious inju- ry. Report says, that she is a complete wreck, and that all the cargo, consisting of wheat, was lost, belonging to Mr. Thomas Williams and Mr. Simeon Lord. -The organ which was sent for to England, for our new Church, arrived at Sydney, and may be shortly expected here.     With feelings of the deepest regret, we have to announce the death of th...

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1827. We last week stated, that it was the In- tention of the Gentlemen forming the Depu- tation from the People to His Excellency Lieutenant Governor Arthur, with a Peti- tion to His Majesty, praying for a Trial by Jury, and a House of assembly, in order to request His Excellency's support to the same, to send us, for insertion in the Colonial Times, copies of the Correspondence relative to this mysterious and unpleasant affair. this has been done ; and the Letters appear     in our back page, to which we beg to refer   our Readers, as being well worthy of perusal and attention.

Monody On the Death of the Rev. John Youl. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 30 March 1827

Monody On the Death of the Rev. John Youl. Hush, hush! one struggle more, and all is past, 'Tis o'er -the Reverend Pastor sleeps his last ! And look ! what now remains of his brief span Of life ? the atoms of what once wag man. He's gone ! and has exchanged the bustling scene   Of life, for death ; the cloudy for serene. He's gone to Heav'n ! where never care or pain   From this cold world, shall reach his heart again. His death was sudden,and his followers said, That never spirit in more sorrow fled ; For that at which, to tell the hardiest start, The old man died-how ? of a broken heart!   Long had he served, and very far had stray'd,   To spread the Gospel tidings-oft had laid His talents out, to point the way to Heaven, Which if not great, were such as God had   given. His Book was his delight-his Church his pride-     He found he all that peace the world de- nied. Here was his treasure-he...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 April 1827

ENGLISH EXTRACTS     'PROSECUTIONS AGAINST THE PRESS.-It is most painful arid discouraging to observe, that, while the liberality which Käs for some years pervaded.nearly all the branches of administration, may have recently been seen reaching the Bench, modifying the language of the Judges', and the punishments inflicted by them. There is no amelioration of the temper and principles ubon which all act with respect to the Press in the Colonies. Nothing is more common than to hear a portion of the Public calling out that the Journals are ti- mid, and that they decline publishing many things, the exposure of which would' benefit the community. But what happens ? If the Journals^do yield, either to the indignation naturally felt against cruelty and oppression^ or to a strong desire to stem the progress of jobbing and corruption by laying open facts, are not these very men, who had been exr claiming, the first to surrender their own judgments to the rules of la...
