The Colonial Press. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 19 February 1830

'?."'"; The Colonial Press 'The file "of'Cape Papers which reached us a few dajs ago, has enabled us to place befoie our readers some portions of the retrospective history of the Cape Press which were until now wanting. Tt is highly instructive, and conveys a lesson which will not be lost, we hope, upon the present and future administrations of the Biitisb Colonies. Without the publica-* tion of weh facts, it Would be exceedingly difficultfor a lit ¡tish public to conceive the extent to which the delegated authmities of a repi ese nt at ive government could" abuse the powers entrusted to them over subjects in remote Colonies, or the degree to which they could forget the dignity of Rulers by exerting their collec- tive wisdom against individuals, and in silencing tlie expression of public opinion upon only one of their acts. There is a little- ness displayed in the proceedings of the Cape Governors against Mr. GREIG and the Press, that is truly disgraceful and contemptible whim we co...

Barbarous Murders. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 19 February 1830

Barbarous Murders   A most barbarous murder was committed on Saturday   night last, on tbe body of Susan Corfield, a young woman who had become free by servitude, and had for some time past cohabited with a Mr. Reed, who was about to, marry her. It appears that John Oxley, formerly a Constable had been a long and intimate acquaintance with the unfortunate woman, and he had several times before threatened to do her some personal injury. There is every reason to believe, from expressions he had recently used, that he, had heard of the intended marriage, and it seems he took the opportunity of introducing himself to her at a time when she had been had been drinking,   to which she was much addicted. She was found with   her throat cut, the head almost severed from the body, a very few minutes after Oxley had been standing inside her door, and calling her from an opposite neighbour's, no one else   being in or by the house...

Black Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 19 February 1830

Black Natives. Extracts from the communications of Correspondents : SHANNON, FEB.16 .-It is really painful to record so dreadful an occurrence - the whole of Mr. HOWELL'S premises and pro- perty burned to the ground before his eyes. About two o'clock on Friday last, while Mr. Howell was in bis own paddock, wa- tering his horses, he saw a party of the Natives hovering at a small distance from his house. The strength of the gang might be about (60 or 70, of whom only 19 or 20 presented themselves behind the house, which most unfortunately was thatched. One of them, having the appearance of a Chief, cleared the brush fence like a deer, bearing in his hand a fire-brand, which he excited to flame by several revolutions in the air, and instautly dashed it on the roof, which was devoured in the flames in a few minutes. The lapidity of conflagration was such, that Mrs. Howell and three small children escaped with difficulty from suffocation and destruction. The house consisted of four rooms...
