Hobart Colonial Times (Newspaper) - October 3, 1851, Hobart, Tasmania National Library of Australia May be sent to Western Australia and his excellency then proceeds to Point out How the sending of these people will be equally beneficial to Tho Mother country and to Vandiemen s land. To coolly states that the colonists of Van die men s land reject them purely from a sense of their own pecuniary interests and though to Coes on to state that he Doe not doubt the sincerity of those who object on moral grounds to transportation be carefully confines this admission to Tho members of the British parliament cries of shame i ask you what would have been your position but for the league ? do you not All know that an act was lately passed in Sydney for the purpose of registering All arrivals from Vandiemen s land with a View to exclude us from their Colony this step was Token under Tho belief that it was necessary for their own Protection and such would have become the Law but that a veto was put upon it by the minis ters of the Crown in England. But the adjoining colonies Are not burdened with a civil list like ours and if the league had not induced the colonists to make common Cau of with us this Law would have Boen sooner or later enforced against us As no government could Long resist the will of the people i would again remind you that sir William Denison seeks to perpetuate his own Power for wrong by dividing our Community and setting Man against Man. Or. Chapman has adverted to the number of members of the new Council. The be kor is nominally to to elected by Tho members of the House but there is a Power reserved to Tho governor to refuse the appoint ment of the speaker whom the members elect. Eight members out of Twenty four Are to to chosen by him. I will not be so invidious As to Tell you who they will be but if you count noses and say who have been the strongest advocates of transportation you will also see who will be the Nomi nees. Loud laughter with the assistance of these eight if sir William Denison eau corrupt four of your representatives the division will to equal and the easting vote is with Tho nominee speaker so that unless you return thirteen out of the sixteen members opposed to transportation the prediction of the biome by authority As to the Mode in which the government is to be con trolled will be utter y useless and he will Dic Tate the 1 iw8, and support the system he has hitherto advocated As Long As the Council sits. Above All. You must remember that the largest Consitt Cunov which will return members to coun cil will be the constituency of Hobart town and the Reform your selection will appear before the world As a powerful evidence of the Principio and opinions of the people. Hear hear i will not now detain you much Longor. I am sure you ill feel with me it is a duty which you owe to yourselves to to careful whom you select and reject and so to manago the election As not Only to put into the Council those who Aro worthy but also to exclude those whom you have most cause to fear As your enemies and remember if you Aro Defeated on this occasion you May expect five years More of transportation five years More of mis government and beyond this you will Havo the contempt of the neighbouring colonies and the British press who will ridicule you and say " Freedom was within your grasp and if the governor or his govern ment were unable to control or to resist they were enabled to i Veigle and entrap Here the Learned and eloquent gentleman retired amid enthusiastic cheering " or. F. Haller next Rose and spoke As follows after the Able speeches already delivered i can Only add that i Hare been Tho companion in almost every Public movement with or. and there fore it is not unfair in me to appear As a witness to that gentleman s efficiency in Public matters moreover the Public journals have recorded most of the acts of or. Chapman since he has been a citizen of Hobart town. Let me ask can any one in this vast and crowded Assembly stand up and say that or. Chapman has been opposed to the people on any one occasion has he not on the contrary sought to prevent the interests of the people from being invaded ? has he Ever offended any class of individuals in this Community ? could any Roan say that to has not on every occasion by his zealous advocacy and labours Publio and Pirato supported every Good done in this Community ? cheers can or. Young say As much ? cries of " no 1 still i say that air. Young is a respectable Man and his authority ought to go for something i will Tell you what or. Young is Dodo headdresses or ago and begged him to allow himself to to pro posed As a candidate for Hobart town asserting that he had perfect Confidence in or. Chapman s Public conduct. Such gon Lomen is the Testi Mony of or. Chapman s opponent 1 we have the testimony of sincere friends As Well As that of Tho gentleman who at this moment is opposed to or. Chapman. But How is it that or. Young stands Forward All at once As the advocate of the govern ment ? i hold in my hand a Small placard put for Ward by or. Young s committee upon it is written " vote for Young the sincere opponent of transportation i what i Are there then hypo critical opponents of transportation ? laughter or. Young s committee say he is the sincere oppo nent of transportation but i believe or. Young is incapable of telling an untruth and therefore i believe or. Young More than i believe those who sent Forth this placard. Whatever or. Young s principles May to he is certainly an honest Man and if he professes himself Asho did at his meet ing not to be favourable at present to the abolition of transportation what becomes of the Pla car vote for Young and no transportation will you believe them after this ? such Are the Means made use of to oppose those who Dro Cate your interests. On the one hand ther contend that or. Chapman has slandered the Colony and on the other hand they say that or. Young is against transportation when he says to is for transportation. But the whole placard is from beginning to end a Mere satire i you Are desirous to establish colonial manufactories vote for Young and no transportation 111"to i would now ask you what colonial manufactory or. Young has established then i would have you compare him with or. Chapman who has ship Ped to England �0,000 bushels of wheat Tho pro Duce of this Colony he has shipped 100 tons of flour he has shipped hundreds of tons of potatoes hops Wool boots made Here of. Is not that support ing colonial interests ? 1 believe that there is not one single Oan Futato standing at this present moment before any of the constituencies of Vandiemen � land who Bas done so much As or. Chapman to promote colonial manufactures and colonial produce. Loud cheers there is a very serious charge against or. Chapman brought by or. Young s committee a very serious charge indeed. " he actually imports English goods into the Colony i1 _ they Don t want you to have Coats hats and waistcoats and because he imports from England they say he is not a fit and proper representative i 1 Tell you that All these charges Are by no Means believed by them there Are several gentlemen belonging to or. Young s com Mittee who themselves import As Many English goods As they can but who never exported a tenth part of the articles which or. Chapman has. How is it let me ask that sir William Denison and his newspaper Are so much opposed to or. Chapman ? i will Tell you. Because they know that or. Chapman is an Independent Man and that to will not flinch from his duty. They know he will not intimidated nor bribed t you have heard from or. Chapman himself that to condemns the present Bill Tudor which we Are about to to governed As an imperfect Bill but or. Young says it is a splendid Bill i am quite sure however that none of you Wou Djak it in i payment 1 first of All there is a res ered civil is of �41,000, which the Assembly cannot control this Sam is taken out of your pockets with out your leave and sir William Denison can do what he pleases with the Money i then there h �28.000 from the Home government for police and gaols and this sum is likewise under his control therefore if you will add �41,000 to �28.000, it strikes me the total will amount to about �70,000, Over which we have no control whatever 1 the land fund yields �13.000 More which sir William Denison holds also 1 let me now ask Yon if or. Young who praises such a Bill is a fit representative for Hobart town loud cries of Jio no we now come to Tho main question tothe people of Vandiemen s land whether you will be any longer controlled by the Horne minorities by the convict Anibor Juei or whether Yon will Send Man into the Council averse to transportation. England has no right to end men among us to be punished before our eyes. No Roan has a right to say to us " punish that Man. Or this Man Beau so to has committed an offence in i say emphatically we will not be the Gaoler of these men that we will not punish them. Reverberating cheers How much longer Are to to witness such galling sights As we do occasionally in Tho streets of this City ? Day after Day we see some poor Fellows carried through them by constables i and Are you prepared to see those men brought Here till Are you willing to see this curse carried on any longer cries of no no no i have another important feature to advert to. Or. Chapman has told you that we have 25 000 children in the Colony. Now i will ask where Ore these children to find their livelihood if constant new labour is poured in from England ? Why they must go away to port Phillip where or. Young has his property 1 tremendous cheering it is because or. Young wants a 9 wages at port Phillip that to wants to Seo them driven out of this Colony 1 now when or Young says to cannot do without transportation because we want labour i would Point to these children and enquire " what is Tobey Omoor them or. Chapman As the president of the league has advocated Tho came of your children and while to has stood Forward and advocated their cause he and his coadjutor have been charged with slandering the Community i a gentleman from port Phillip told to the other Day that since or. West had been there this Colony had risen in estimation. Such had Boen the effect of the league 1 you have heard that or. Young is the Sincero Friend of transportation and i will now ask you who Are the men that Havo Slan dered the Colony in 1847, sir William Denison wrote Home that we were All a very bad set of people and the other Day when behind that Tho elections Are coming on he changes his note and cries " hollow 1 this won t do any longer i laugh Ter they be found me out 1" renewed laughter and then where does he go ? he goes to Tho Otott Side of the Island and at a Smalt dinner party in some out of the Way place to says " of 1 1 Havo Long since found out that you Aro a very excellent set of people and i Havo Long since mind you. Long since written so to Tho Secretary of state 1 we were therefore looking out for this despatch and it has just come out. On the 2nd May 1850, to thus writes to Earl Grey Here or. Harris read the following passage from the despatch referred to by Tho speaker " in a despatch. No. 33, dated july 10, 1847. Written shortly after my arrival in the Colony i stated my opinion that should the Supply of labour afforded by the transportation of convicts to these colonies be withdrawn the tone of moral feeling would become Worso and worse and drunkenness and debauchery which prevail even now Toan extent hardly conceivable would abroad like a moral pestilence Over the land this was said with Refe rence to these colonies generally and was the expression of an opinion formed upon but a Short acquaintance with the habits and manners of the people. A longer acquaintance and a More Exten ded knowledge has not led me to alter my opinion in any Way while it has supplied _ me Willi j act s most strongly corroborative of the truth i ask you now who has slandered the co Lony ? cries of " the i will now ask you who supports the governor Why or. Young and he and his committee stand Forward and accuse or. Chipman of having slandered the Colony. Will you believe them ? indignant cries of no no and gentlemen this despatch is marked " cries of read the whole of there is no necessity to read the whole of it for other parts have been ably commented on by my Learned Friend or. Allport. But i have one word More to say. Lies without number have been propagated by or. Chapman s adversaries with a View to disparage his character and jeopardise my return you have heard some of them refuted this evening and if there Are any yet unanswered or if there Are More advanced in future if you go to or. Chapman or to any of his committee they will be explained. I really believe these alumni actors think that your under standing is of a very slight Quality indeed when they imagine you will Swallow anything they con coct. Gentlemen we have known or. Chapman for the last ten years we have witnessed his exertions for the Progress of colonial manufactures and interests and now let us testify our approbation of his conduct and evince our Confidence in his principles by returning or. Chapman at the head of the poll. On the 21st october let us accompany him to the hustings and let us prove that we Are determined to support the candidate who will maintain our interests protect our immunities avenge our wrongs and make Vandiemen s land an Independent and flourishing Colony. Here the speaker retired amid peals of thundering applause or. Williams a Delegate of the trades Union next presented himself and said there is one passage in or. Young s late speech at the Waterloo hotel respecting a Road made at both Well which i consider to be All important to the Labouring men of this Colony. It appears that tenders were asked in order that this Road might be completed by free labour and the estimate of Cost reached about �1700. They were however informed that the Road could be constructed for �140 by prison labour. Again if it has been said that the league and those who belong to it Are the slanderers of the Colony i Tell you they Are not end i will read an extract from a letter in i which sentiments Are uttered that do Honor to the head and heart of any member of this Community. " Emancia posts believe me you Are of All men interested in the abolition of transportation. You of All men Are the most interested in the Early Freedom of the land of your children s birth or adoption. A few Short years Only will have to Roll Over and you and i with the Emigrant class from whom Dion and such designing men strive to Sepa rate you will be Laid in the grave. But our child Ren will live together the men and women of a future nation. As you love your children then you will continue to rally round the Standard of the league and offer the incense of grateful hearts to the names and the memory of the men who against such Odds during a Long and dreary fight have so Well contested the Noble Battle of Aioli now in appealing to an Assembly like this i would ask if any among you Ever witnessed the scenes of desolation and sorrow which abound in this Metropolis and next i would enquire if after having so witnessed these scenes you Are prepared to come Forward and support a government Nomi Nee ? i recollect a meeting once held in the Vic Toria theatre when it was in contemplation to introduce the prisoners from cockatoo Island to these shores. Or. Thomas Young then called upon them to know " what we had done that valuable horse belonging to or.
