SWANSEA,—The Britannia, 120 guns, Captain George Mansel, put into Plymouth, on the 26th ult., from the Mediterranean, and will be paid off at Portsmouth. We have great pleasure In itiViog publicity to the following complimentary address to Herbert Jones, Esq., Barrister at Law, who has lately returned to this country, where, we trust, he will receive that redress which, we are assured from various respecta- ble sources, his case so loudly demands Extract from the Colonial Magazine, October 1841. Page 228. VAN Dt EVEN'S LAND. The removal of Mr. Herbert Jones, as Solicitor- General, appears to have excited a strong feeling in the colony. We have only time this month to give an extract from the Tasmanian Weekly Dispatch of the 9th of April last, but we shall recur to the subject in our next number. We give, below, the* letter addressed to Mr' Jones, requesting him, as able adyoc^te, to recon- sider. hiq determination to leave the colony, and his reply, The letter is signed by more than eighty in. dividuals of influence and respectability, and amongst the names we observe many who are decidedly op- posed to each other in what are called colonial politics." Hobart Town, 16th March, 1841. Sir,—We have heard with much regret that you intend to leave the polony. In addressing you, we consider it prudent to ab. stain from any expression of our sentiments on the misunderstanding between yourself and the Govern- ment; but we cannot suffer you to depart without making some effort in dissuading you to the contrary. 1, It would he useless, as it woqld be disingenuous, to attempt disguising the fact. that our anxiety to retain you iu the colony arises principally from a re- gard to our own individual interest, and that of the community ill which we live. Jn appreciating the value of your professional knowledge, and full reliance on your unbiassed opinion and advice, we respectfully and earnestly entreat, that. you will re-consider the resolution you have taken in leaving the colony, where we are certain success awaits your tqleuf. With pyery respect, We are, Sir, Your most obedicut Servants. To Herbert Jones, Esq. &c., &c., &c, Hobart Town, 31st March, 1841. I. Gantlemen,- Allo%v me to offer you my sincere tlnnks for your spontaneous expression ot regret at my ap- proaching departure; and whilst so numerous a body of the most respectable and affluent merchants and gentlemen of the colony (with the majority of whom I have not even the pleasureiof a personal ac- quaintance,) frankly avow ilint you seek to retain me among you, from a regard to your own individual interest, and that of the community in which you live," 1 fill(1 myself placed in so pramlli position, that I trust I may, without vanity, acknowledge that I feel highly honoured and gratified by the estimation in which you hold my professional knowledge" and "talent," and by the "full reliaucc" for your re- pose in me. I' t uufeignedly deplore that I cannot comply with your flattering solicitation; for conscious, as I am, that all the persecution and annoyances I have suf- fered, have been occasioned by my earnest endeavours to support, by the uniform expression of my un- biassed opinion and advicI," the real honour and interests of the Crown in this colony. I feel that the injuries which have been inflicted upon me can be adequately redressed only by a personal appeal to the jusiiop qf my beloved Sovereign. V Do me the favour to accept my best wishes that health, happiness, and prosperity may attend each of you and permit me to assure you, that if any ex- ertions of mine can be beneficiallyjem/iloyed elsewhere in promoting the latter, it will always afford me sincere pleasure to exercise in your behalf the humble powers which you sq favourably appreciate, and which, during my residence in Van Diemen's Land. have secured to me your undeviating and gratifying support. « I have the honour to remain, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obedient Servant, "HERBEllT G. JONES." To Thoirns Yardley Lowes, Esq., and the other gentlemen who signed the address."
