The New Zealand Pri[?]. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 20 April 1827

The New Zealand Prince, Then this distinguished personage first ar-   rived at Calcutta, he, with the modesty na- tural to persons of elevated rank, preferred going on shore ineog. at first, in order the better to dispose of his state papers and cre- dentials, leaving his Minister and factotum, His Excellency, Morgan M'Murroch, on board the St. Patrick. Some days after, the Minis- ter landed in full fig.; a feathered war-cloak hung from his brawny shoulders ; his large circular shield was carried on his left arm, while his right hand grasped three stout lan- ces, and his bow and well stored quiver, with two stone patta pattooes (the formidable: wea- pon used/in close combat), were suspended in slings of untanned hides from his back. With. these heavy cumbrous, and manifold ac- coutrements, His Excellency moved with the most perfect ease, and he was quickly sur- rounded by a numerous crowd of curious spectators. While in procession to his Royal Master's hotel, a body of ...

Much talk and divers opinions have been occasion- ed in the town in consequence of this trans- action ; and nothing is talked about but the seizure- bf the tea.

M. S. Slaney, then lying at that port, pn the plea that she had no li ' cense,' to convey teas to Port Jackson, from the/East India Company. The consequence was, that Captain Mitchell dispatched the Alcoran, cargo and all, ip falcutta, in charge pt one of his Lieutenants, in order that the Admiralty Court at that place might decide the legality or illegality pf the seizure.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1827. In the Colonial Times, a week or two backe, we noticed that several men at Sydney had been removed from prison, (where they hand been five or six weeks confined without exa- mination, merely on .the authority of an ap- prehending warrant, on a charge of cattle   stealing by habeas corpus, and discharged hy order of the Court.

TO THOMAS ARCHER, ESQ. M. L. C. HONOURED SIR,-I beg leave thus publicly to address you, upon your appointment to a seat in the Legislative Council, and to assure you, that the Inhabitants of the County of Cornwall feel peculiarly grateful to the per- son or persons who recommended you to our most Gracious Sovereign, and also to His Ma- jesty for placing you in a situation, in which you may display those pre-eminent abilities with which nature, and a liberal education, have invested you.

Attrocities of the Aoorigines. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 May 1827

ATTROCITIES of the ABORIGINIES.     [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] It was discovered on Monday, the 12th ul- timo, that the Natives had speared two indi- viduals at the Green Hills, near what is call- ed the Eastein Tier, about six miles from   Campbell-town, who had been in that quar- ter tending the flocks of Mr. Walter David- son ; their bodies were found in a very man- gled state, with spears still, sticking in them. Several persons in the neighbourhood, assisted by a small party of soldiers, made immediate pursuit of the sable murderers, and fortunately overtook them at a distance of about ten miles, in a gulley, opposite Mr. David Murray's farm, and where for the first time, I believe, trusting to their numbers, they contended a field of battle against Eu- ropean arms and discipline. They made a most desperate attack on the party which, was disposed in front, with stones and   spears, which they, protecting themselves behind trees, ...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 May 1827

Letters to the Editor. SIR,-I observed with pleasure a week or two back, that you suggested the propriety of sifting light silth over the newly-metalled roads, as a preservative to the feet of cattle.   Indeed, Mr. Editor, you quite fall into my ideas on this subject, as I am of opinion, that by such a practice, the roads would in ap- pearance be improved, their durability much increased, and the feet of cattle much pro- tected. I have frequently been surprised that this has not been done by the very able Superintendent, Lieutenant Richardson, par- ticularly as he has so many loads, I may say score loads, of this material lying as it were in his way. A very thin coat would be re- quired, au inch or an inch and a half in thickness, over the larger stones would be fully sufficient. I observe"that Lieutenant Richardson has endeavoured to form the traffic on the newly-laid metal, by drawing heavy trees over the places where it is not laid, no doubt, with the view of wearing...

Mrs. Hammand. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 May 1827

Mrs. Hammond. This venerable old lady, Mrs. Hammond, well know to the Inhabitants as the house, keeper of Mr. Oliver Smith, departed this life on Sunday morning last, at the very ad- vanced age of 95.-This is the greatest age to which any peison has attained in the Co- lony. Mrs. Hammond was a native of Eng- land, and arrived in the first fleet to Port     Jackson on the Lady Penrinne, with Gover- nor Phillips, in 1788, at which time she was upwards of 55 years of age, then an old woman. She left eight children behind her in Eng- land, who have all since become soldiers. Her father was a respectable tailor, whom she assisted in making the Court mourning for King GEORGE II. She was one of the most careful, tidy, and industrious old ladies we ever saw. At her death, all her clothes, to- gether with those in which she purposed to be buried, were found in the neatest order in her drawers, and not many minutes before she expired, she directed her attendants wher...

Clonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 4 May 1827

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1827. With feelings of peculiar regret, we have recorded in another place, a circumstance which is calculated to be a serious injury to the Colony, unless it is properly cleared up. We allude to the loss of the bark Hope, on Sunday last. To say that a vessel has been wrecked in the River Derwent, will be to surprise every Captain who ever put into the port, but to those who know not the admirable harbour which we have, it may perhaps   be a terror, and prevention to their putting into our port. It is, to say the least, a most extraordinary thing how this vessel could have been lost in the river Derwent, which is generally admitted to be, and so it unques- tionably is, the safest harbour in the world. It is said that the Hope was making long tacks, and that the very moment when she was to go about, the wind shifted and drove her ashore before the Pilot knew where he was. This may be the fact - we will not dispute it (especially...
