Ellicit Spirit Dealing. [FROM A LAUNCESTON CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 April 1827

Illicit Spirit Dealing. [FROM A LAUNCESTON CORRESPONDENT.]   I am induced to trouble you with a few re- marks upon illicit grog-selling, as I boldly maintain they are not sly grog shops ; for here all of them are known generally, and particularly by the Police. There are two reasons which hold up and support them in this town ; one and the principal support is, any man who wants a spree, as it is called, finds no other place so convenient, and the Police cannot (they say) force into these houses without an information. Any man of known bad character can introduce his friend at any time, and for any purpose. Gambling,drink- ing, fighting, indeed, scenes which would appal any parent, are hourly practised, in these Launceston Hells; and this very ac- commodation draws so formidable a force in their favour, that it is dangerous to attack some of the most eminent of these shops. The other reason is, assigned servants, male and female, lads, or free servants, collect here to ...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 April 1827

Ürttew to tïje îStiitot. ! SIR,-Your Correspondent; Mr. Jonathan Oldenbuck, in his letter to¡you ôt the 16th instant, would make you believe'that he alone has a copy of the translation' of Haden slagen's works. In this, however, he is mis-' /taken, as the grand uncle of my god-father, bequeathed me one, in asmall, but select library, which I brought oiit with me at the period of my emigration ; and it was very lucky, Mr. Editor, I brought them, for though I no doubt came here with certain expecta- tions, my whole time is still devoted to my cat and books. 1 had the curiosity to turn up the story of the Siluvian farmer, as quoted by your Correspondent, and was surprised to find that he only had found' patience to give you the first part of it. As some of your Readers may wish to be acquainted With the sequel, and having plenty of leisure time to trans« cribe it, I have done so as follows, to shew the happy contrast between our own and Si- luvian justice. " The Rosshorn showed the cou...

Ship News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 April 1827

SHIP NEWS. Arrived this morning from Calcutta direct,   the Honourable East India Company's cruiser, Researche, Captain DILLON, (an officer   well known in these Colonies). It will be   recollected, that Captain Dillon has been wrecked three times, in three different   vessels, viz. the ship Phatisalam, off this coast;   the brig Calder, at Valparaiso; and the ship St. Patrick, somewhere eastward of New   Guinea. During the last voyage in the St.   Patrick, Captain Dillon discovered in what manner the loss of the French Discovery ship La Boussale, and the unfortunate Admiral Count De la PEROUSE has been occasioned.   It appears, that on the Islands Wana and Bai, off the east-coast of New Guinea, the enterprising Captain Dillon found, among   the natives of those Islands, a Prussian seaman and a Lascar, belonging to the La Boussale,   and also the guard of...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, APRIL 6,1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 April 1827

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, APRIL 6,1827. When a man is in error, he shews his inde- pendence hy acknowledging it. A stubborn adherence to objectionable things, and a per- tinent and unyielding defence of indefensi ble^concluct, are not marks of true indepen deitägrVOn the contrary, they betray a weak disingenuous mind, and a perverted principle. Truth is the basis of independence ; and without that is its guide, no Journal can lay claim to that glorious appellation. The Colonial Times is an Independent Journal. It.has ever been, and it ever w ill be ; but that is not a rule, why the Colonial Times should not acknow ledge itself in error, when it is proved to be so. The Proprietor of this Jour- nal, it will be recollected, was the first Pub- lisher of any Newspaper in the Island. "" He established the Hobart Town Gazette, which lie continued to publish until within these two yeats. Up to that period, the Colonial Press «asunder censorship, when its freedom wa> establishe...

Casmanian curf Aleeting. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 April 1827

Tamanian Turf Meeting On Tuesday, the 3d instant, the first   regular attempt in this Colony at the truly   English and noble sport ol Horse Racing was made at Ross Bridge, with a success and spirit which we venture to assert (as a com mencement) never was surpassed in any country. The weather was most delightful,   and the only drawback to the happy scene was the very great dearth ot the Ladies of Tasmania; this circumstance we feel assured will not happen again. When the amusement   gets better understood, the fair sex of this our adopted country will, we doubt not, strain every nerve to participate in the pleasures of the turf. The respectability of the   few Ladies who honored the course with their presence is the best guarantee for a larger assemblage at the next Meeting. The course, which was circular, and something more than a mile round, had been marked out by white posts, with a judgment that conferred &am...
