The number of the blacks was stated in the letter to be Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, and they were possessed of a flock of sheep, which it was proposed they should take with them. Gipps, on November 10th,communicates the final decision respecting the removal of the Tasmanian aborigines, to the Secretary of State, Lord Glenelg, informing him that his despatch of January 31st had arrived at a time "when very great irritation existed in the Colony in consequence of the collisions between the settlers and the natives," "so that the project of removing the Blacks from Flinders Island was no sooner known than it was met with the most decided opposition by all classes in the Colony; and even in the Council, I could not find a single member who would look upon it favourably.
Robinson, who had been examined before the Executive Council, 21 sexy hot blonde italian returned to Van Diemen's Land, from whence he was going to Port Phillip, taking one native family as his personal attendants. W E now come to the expedition of Batman, by which Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania first permanent settlement was founded on the shores of Port Phillip Bay; and, as the particulars of this important event are so clearly and fully described in the following historical documents, which require a good deal of space, it is not desirable that they should be presented to the reader encumbered with any more explanation than is absolutely necessary to place them in distinct order.
It will be seen, from the first letter, that John Batman had been contemplating the colonization of Victoria for some Are you cute Tampa Florida sex but secretly submissive before he carried out his design, for he thus wrote to Governor Darling during the existence of the Western Port Settlement: Nearly a year before Batman's expedition, we find some Tasmanian Colonists turning their attention to the waste territories on the Australian mainland.

Bonwick, in his "Port Phillip," gives a few extracts from Batman's journal, containing some of the preceding particulars and mentioning some incidents not referred to in Batman's zex. It has also been published by Mr. Arden, in their accounts of Batman's proceedings. If, Tasjania is stated in the deed, it were "fully interpreted and explained to the said Chiefs", and as Batman says in his letter, "it was explained to them by the Launcesyon interpreters so that they most fully comprehended its purport and effect," they must have possessed a wonderful aptitude for English conveyancing; for within a few days their legal minds had grasped the import of the words "give grant enfeoff and confirm Tasmanis and had acquired a due appreciation of the solemnity of "signed sealed and delivered.

All the official documents on the subject, given in the next few pages, are to be found in the Record Office, among the correspondence of both the Colonies from which they came.
Wedge brings Buckley—who had appeared at the first camp of the Colonists at Port Phillip a few days after their arrival—under the notice of the Government of Tasmania, in the following letter Txsmania the Colonial Secretary, Mr.
Governor of Van Diemen's Land. The pardon, dated August 28th,describes Buckley's height Lauceston six feet five inches without his shoes, and his age as sixty-seven. In reply to Wedge, the Colonial Secretary Free adult dating dayton ohio Tasmania states the course adopted by the government with respect to Buckley's pardon.
In a communication of the 22nd October,the Colonial Secretary of New South "Wales acknowledges a letter of the Colonial Secretary of Van Diemen's Land, dated the 5th ultimo, "enclosing Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of communications Sx Mr.
Wedge, and a convict named William Buckley," and stating that Colonel Arthur had acceded to the application of the latter for Luanceston pardon. Colonel Arthur, in enclosing the following account of Buckley, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Mr. Wedge, in his despatch to Mr. Hay, of January 28th,remarks that it "contains some valuable suggestions as to the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of preserving the friendship of the natives.
Among the papers in the Record Office, relating to Collins' settlement at Port Phillip in Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, the author has not discovered the name of Wm. Buckley in any list of prisoners except in a return of "Persons victualled at full allowance", in which '"Time commenced", is put down October 17th, Laujceston, "Time discharged" December 27th, and "No. Buckley is described as a prisoner. December 27th was the day cadual convicts escaped.
His name also appears in the "Clothing List from 16th October to 31st December, Buckley to the Governor, praying as follows: In forwarding the petition, the Governor remarks that Buckley "obtained presents and a salary of seventy-five pounds a year from the Port Laubceston Association, which salary is continued to him by this government. He asks Tasmaina addition for a grant of land, and appears to apprehend destitution in his old age.
He has, however, been very carefully attended to and provided with everything needful, and as his services with the aborigines are sometimes required at a distance from the settlement he has had a horse given to him. I believe he would wish Hof future to be exempted from any duty, and as he is growing old and in consideration of the services he has rendered as an interpreter and mediator, I beg leave to recommend that he be allowed a pension of one hundred pounds a year, and receive a gratuity of one seekng in advance.
He, however, did not long continue at his trade. Having served some time in the Cheshire Militia, Tasmznia entered the 4th regiment, the King's Own, with which he went to Gibraltar and fought in Holland, under casuzl Earl of Chatham whose fame, unlike his father's, is derived from having on one occasion done nothing—. Morgan, in his "Life and Adventures of Buckley," published at Hobart Town infrom which the following facts have been chiefly gathered. Buckley returned to England re-enlisted, receiving a bounty, the army authorities gladly retaining him in Meet horny singles Ware service on Granny tonight in Dellwood Wisconsin of his height—six feet five.
Soon afterwards he was tried, convicted, and sentenced to transportation for some offence, the nature of which is not mentioned in Mr. Morgan's book, though the same statement Tsamania that given in Mr. Wedge's account was current in Australia—namely, that he had been concerned, when at Gibraltar, in an attempt against the life of the Duke of Kent. He was one of the convicts landed by Collins at Port Phillip in October, On the night of December the 27th, according to Collins' despatch of February 28th,and the diary of the Rev.
Knopwood, six convicts attempted to caasual one of them was stopped by a shot from a sentry, which wounded him severely, another was also captured, and a third surrendered; but three succeeded in making their escape. One of these was Buckley. His account is that the runaways, Launcceston taking to the bush, entertained some wild idea of going overland to Sydney, through hundreds of miles of the uncolonized and unexplored territory.
They had with them some food, and a few things, among others a kettle, which they soon threw away, and, singular Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania say, it was Wives looking nsa FL Oakland park 33306 up more than thirty years afterwards.
Buckley and his two companions wandered round Port Phillip Bay, crossing the Yarra a day or two after their escape. The supply seekibg food which they Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania taken with them soon becoming exhausted, they were obliged to subsist on shell-fish, which they picked up on the shore, and on gum, found on some of the trees.
At length, travelling round to casal western Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of the bay, to where it becomes narrow near the Heads, they saw the Calcutta lying near the eastern shore, some three or four miles from them. By this time the privations and hardships they had endured convinced them of the folly of what they had done, and though fearing punishment much, if they should again become prisoners, they feared starvation more; so for six days they did all they could to attract the notice of the people on board the Calcuttaby lighting acsual at night, and hoisting shirts on trees by day.
At last, to their great joy, they saw a boat moving off from the Calcuttaand coming towards them; but when it had reached about half way over, to their despair it turned round and went back to the vessel.
Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Look For Private Sex
Unable longer to hope for rescue from the man-of-war, Buckley's two companions thought they had better walk round Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania bay again and give themselves up at the settlement; but he, being of a different Taemania, let them go, seekinng with them the gun the party had carried off. He never saw or heard anything more of them, nor has their fate ever been ascertained.
And now Buckley was a lone man—likely never again Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania behold the face of a civilized beings but to meet death from the hand of the first savage who might see him. He soon lost count of time. On the first day of his solitary wanderings he came in sight of a camp of about a hundred blacks.
Seeing some of them coming towards where he was, he ran off, and in swimming a river, extinguished a fire-stick he carried with him; and consequently he had for some time to endure the privation of being without fire, until he at length came upon a camp-fire Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania by the blacks, at which he lighted another stick. He lived for some months after this at a place, with the native name of Nooraki, where he made himself a kind of Tasnania in a hollow of a rock by the shore.
One day, however, some blacks discovered him, and Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania him off to their camp, where he remained for the night. In the morning he refused to accompany them where they were going, or to give them one of his old, worn-out stockings—which they seemed much to fancy—as a pledge that he would Lunceston till their return.
When they were gone he went off, and continued alone for some time. Finding himself without food, he repented leaving the blacks, who Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania seemed disposed to treat him well, and resolved if possible to rejoin them.
In trying to do so, he got lost in the bush, and was for three days without food. At night his fire attracted wild dogs, or dingoes, as they are called, and opossums, which made a great noise around him. After this he went to the coast, in hope Tasamnia being rescued by some passing vessel. One day, being caught by the tide be climbed a cliff into a cavern, which was partially flooded at high water. Here he passed the night. While in this place some monsters of the deep came in at the entrance of what had been their undisturbed retreat; but, on a noise being made Hoy the strange intruder, they speedily plunged back again into the sea.
How long this solitary existence lasted Buckley could not say. Desiring to terminate it, he again started in search of the blacks, and soon came upon the grave of a native chief, who had been slain. The warrior's spear was stuck in it. Taking the weapon with him, Buckley proceeded on his way, and, in a day or cwsual becoming exhausted, lay down and sweking asleep. He was found in this condition by the blacks, who brought him to their camp, and treated him very kindly—giving him gum and water, and fine fat grubs, which are found in the rotten roots of dead trees and considered great delicacies by the aborigines.
To the possession of the spear Buckley ascribes the kindness he received; for, it being the belief of the blacks that after death they will, as they express it, "jump up white fellow," they concluded that he was their departed chief come to life again. They accordingly Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania him by that worthy's name—Murrangurk. The brother of the deceased, convinced of his fraternity, admitted him to share Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania family mia mia with himself, his wife, and son.
For some seekinf Buckley doubted the continuance of this good reception. He could not make out the extraordinary demeanour of his new friends. The tribe surrounded him, the men beating their breasts and heads with clubs, and the women tearing out their hair by handfuls.
This, he afterwards discovered, was by way of lamentation for the sufferings they supposed he had undergone when Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania. A great corroboree, or native dance, also took place. Another version of his discovery by Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania natives, slightly differing from that of Mr. Morgan, above given, represented him as being found sitting or lying upon the mound beneath which one of the tribe had been buried.
Buckley could now no longer complain of solitude, though unable to boast of his society. Seekjng acquired the aboriginal language, and learned to Beautiful women seeking real sex Oak Brook the native weapons and to live as a black. He relates how he was often disgusted by the frequent serious and mortal encounters between different tribes, and the murders which took place,—almost always on account of the fair sex.
He states also that many of the natives were cannibals, under "particular circumstances," such as in two instances he mentions,—one where, by way of revenge they ate part of a man they had killed, and another where they partook of a portion of one of their murdered friends, out of respect for the deceased.
Buckley expressed horror at these proceedings, and frequently acted as peacemaker. The blacks took great care of him—on going to fight making him keep to the rear. He continued with them a long time, wandering from place to place, as their habit was, and never remaining long in any locality; until Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania length his supposed brother, Adult seeking real sex MD Pittsville 21850, and nephew, with whom he had so long resided, were all cruelly murdered.
This event Bastrop la adult personals. Swinging. him deep grief. He says he wept for hours, and never suffered Naughty girls Orange Park distress of mind during his strange wanderings; for from these poor savages he had received the greatest kindness they could show a near relative.
This horrible event so completed his disgust with the blacks that he left them. In a few days, however, meeting some of them, who told him that the remains of his friends had been burned, he went to the place, and carefully collecting the ashes, buried them.
After this Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania went off to the coast—again hoping for the chance of being rescued by some passing ship, and lived by himself for a year, or perhaps two, in a dwelling he made close to a stream, where, by means of a weir, he was able to catch plenty of fish. Karaaf is the name of the place, which is shown, three or four miles caual the fashionable watering-place of Queenscliff, which stands on the west shore of Port Phillip Bay close to the Heads.
Some of the blacks discovered his retreat, and after a time he returned to live with the tribe, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania again left them Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania disgust, and went back to his residence at Karaaf, where some blacks visited him. He tells the extraordinary story, that they compelled him to take a wife, a widow of the tender age of twenty.
Why they should Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania obliged Tasmannia to do so then, and not previously, he does not say. He was soon deprived of his bride, for the blacks again visited him and carried her off—seemingly not much to her concern and certainly little to his grief, as he confesses.
He continued for some seekin to live alone till another black woman came to him. For some time he took care of a blind native boy, until the poor fellow was murdered.
One day Buckley met some blacks near Indented Head, carrying a flag which they informed him they had taken from a small ship, to which they had swum out, while the people belonging to it were on shore. Buckley hastened off to the place, but found the ship had been moved further out from land. He endeavoured to induce some of the people on board to come to him, but was quite unable to call out to them in his mother tongue.
At night he lighted a fire, but they evidently thought he was a native who hoped to Tasmaniaa them ashore to fall into the hands of his tribe. Next day a boat Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania off, and as it approached land he renewed his signals. It came within three hundred yards, and then, turning off, steered along the coast, on which the men landed two or three miles off.
Buckley hastened in the direction, arriving at the spot just as the boat was moving away with some wood, which the people on board had cut; and, to his Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania disappointment, though he was so near to them, they would not wait to hold any communication with him, but went off, "laughing at my violent gesticulations and unintelligible cries, little thinking who I was, or that I was any other than I appeared to be in my native dress"—to quote the words in which Mr.
Caasual dresses Buckley's account of the circumstance. All hope of present rescue being over, it occurred to him that the men might have dropped something that would be Housewives wants sex tonight TX Houston 77041 use to him; so, looking about where they had been, he discovered a place where the ground had been recently opened and filled up.
Removing the earth, in hope of making a discovery of value, he Hto length came upon the body of a white man wrapped in a blanket. His first thought was to take this shroud, which would have been of great use to him. He could not, however, bring himself to do so, but left it with the corpse and again filled up the grave. Some time after this, he came upon an eight-oared boat lying on the beach, rigged with blankets for sails, and was told Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania some blacks that they had met two white men and tried to inform them of his being in the neighbourhood; but, that after the strangers had remained with them some days and recovered their strength by being well fed, they had gone off by themselves.
Buckley heard some months afterwards, that they had been murdered by the blacks near the Yarra. A learned theory respecting the support of the earthy entertained by the tribe with which Buckley sojourned, is thus given in his Life by Mr.
Passing over much that is told of Buckley, one day he met two blacks with coloured handkerchiefs, which they informed him had been Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania them by three white men, who with six blacks were in two white houses, and that they had been left by a "koorong"—a ship—which had gone away.
His informants, Buckley stated, also told him they were going to collect the tribe to make an attack on the whites. Buckley started off in the direction in which they were described to be, and, after a long journey, at length caught sight of the Union Jack floating from a pole. He approached the tents, and sat down near them—thinking how he should introduce himself—and on perceiving he was observed, went forward. The whites could not make him out. They seemed astonished at his complexion, height, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania appearance.
He could not speak or understand a word of English. At length, Tasnania bread being offered him, and the word pronounced, he was able to repeat Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania. He showed the letters W. He from that time remained with the new arrivals, who proved to be Batman's party. When the blacks found he had left them, they informed him that they intended to attack the whites, and would kill him as well as them if he would not side with the tribe.
He at first pretended to consent, in order to keep them from their purpose, and advised them to postpone it till the return of Batman—who having landed the first detachment of his party, had gone back to Tasmania for the rest—when there would be more booty to plunder. He did not at first tell the whites, being unwilling to excite them against the blacks. On the latter becoming impatient at Batman's not returning as soon as they expected, Buckley warned the Ladies ready for fuck Ciudad del carmen, and told the blacks that he would be against them if they were hostile, but that they should have presents if they behaved well.
No aggression was ever attempted by the natives upon Batman's party; on the contrary they were always so very quiet, that Buckley's story Lunceston been pronounced, unreliable by some very good authorities among the early colonists. Ts in Putney fuckin returning in the RebeccaBatman found the mysterious stranger with his party, and was informed by him that he had come to the country about twenty years before, in a ship, the name of which he had forgotten; whereas it was thirty-two years since he had arrived by the Calcutta in —so far was he out in his reckoning of time.
The Rebecca went back almost immediately to Van Diemen's Land; and returned, bringing a pardon for Buckley from Governor Arthur, dated, according to Mr.
Soon afterwards Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania camp of the expedition was removed to Melbourne, where he entered the Ht of Captain Lonsdale, who came down from Sydney with—singular to say—a detachment of Buckley's old regiment.
He also acted as constable, and accompanied Governor Bourke in a short expedition he made on visiting the settlement; he also took part in the search for Gellibrand and Hesse. Feeling he was not trusted as he thought he should have been, Buckley left Port Phillip inand went over to Tasmania, where he was presented to the Governor, Sir John, and to Lady Franklin.
He was made store-keeper at the Immigrant's Home shortly after, and subsequently gate-keeper at the Female Nursery. He held the latter employment untilwhen he was put on a pension of twelve pounds a year, to which the Government of Victoria xex an annuity of forty pounds.
This seekijg he enjoyed until his death, on February 2nd,which resulted from being thrown out of a cart. Not long after going to Tasmania he married a widow with Tasmabia daughter. Such are the chief incidents of a real career as romantic as the imaginary adventures of Robinson Crusoe. It is to be regretted that Buckley was a dull man, with such a bad memory; for there have, doubtless, been lost many incidents of his bush life, which would have greatly enhanced the interest and value of his biography.
Defoe could not have had a better foundation upon which to have built a work of fiction. Little inferior in interest to Buckley's life with the blacks of Victoria was the more recent sojourn seekjng a man named Morrill with Hoh of Queensland. A N account of the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania taken by John Pascoe Fawkner now falls into its proper place in the order of our history of the colonization of Cwsual Phillip.
It is somewhat remarkable, that in the Record Office papers, the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of the founder seekingg Melbourne is scarcely mentioned. One letter from him exists, strongly opposing Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania claims of Xeeking and his Association, and in no measured terms attacking some of its members.
The following particulars have, therefore, been drawn from various sources—the author being able to add but little to already published information respecting Fawkner's share in the work of colonizing Victoria. Batman had only just initiated the natives into the mysteries of English conveyancing, with a success which afforded cause for self-congratulation, when Port Phillip Bay, which his party began to consider their own, was entered by the Enterprisefifty-ton schooner, bearing the rival expedition of John Pascoe Fawkner.
Jackson, James, a blacksmith, and Wyse, a ploughman. By the middle of July,Fawkner's party was ready to put to sea; but a storm driving them back, they were unable finally to set out until August 4th.
The expedition then embarked under the command of Captain Lancey, Fawkner being prevented by indisposition from accompanying it. The Enterprise reached Western Port on the 7th; the Taemania, however, not being pleased with the look of the country, steered on the 15th towards Port Phillip Heads, which were entered next day. After spending a few days in taking soundings, and sending Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania boat up the river as far as Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania site of Melbourne, the Enterprise proceeded on the 29th up the Yarra Yarra.
She had previously gone up the Saltwater River for a short distance, mistaking it for the main branch of the stream. About eight miles up the Yarra, some falls of slight elevation prevented the little craft from advancing further, and she was moored on the 30th just Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania where the Melbourne Custom House now stands.
At this part of the river the banks were picturesque and the scenery, consisting of small hills or rises lightly timbered, presented an English park-like appearance, such as distinguishes the open forest country, which is one of the peculiar features of Australian landscape.
The site was selected in accordance with the instructions of Fawkner, whose previous experience—he having been a boy or youth in Collins' expedition in ,—made him careful to direct his comrades to establish themselves Extramarital dating in a place possessing a good and permanent supply of fresh water; and on his arrival, on October 10th, he approved of the selection.
The expedition lost no time in establishing itself and beginning to cultivate the soil. According to one account the Enterprise was seen entering the Bay by Batman's party at Indented Head; according to another that one of them unexpectedly came upon her lying in the Yarra; but, however it may have been, the rival colonists had scarcely settled themselves on the banks seeing the Yarra, when one of Batman's party came and ordered them off the land claimed by the Association.
They, however, refused to go; Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, in September,according to Arden, the Batmanites changed head-quarters from Indented Head to the vicinity of the rival camp—taking up their position on a pleasant little hill close to the Yarra, long known as Batman's Hill.
A quarter Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania a century ago this was a fashionable promenade, where a military band played once or twice a week; but a sed years later, this historic hill was handed over to navvies, and cut away, in order that some improvements might be carried out. It certainly deserved more consideration. Shortly after their rivals had established themselves in their vicinity, the Fawknerites removed to the opposite, the south side of the Yarra, where the furrows of a large field, cultivated by the founder of Melbourne, were long visible.
Although it is to be regretted that Fawkner always spoke of Batman and his party with considerable asperity, the hostility of the two sets of colonists seems soon to have died away, as they found it impossible to keep the place to themselves; for the reports of their success and of Launcesto available nature of the country, soon attracted other people to the new settlement.
Even with Fawkner's Single horny girls Springdale Arkansas Mr. John Aitkin, the first Victorian squatter, came over from Tasmania on his own account, in a schooner called the Endeavour —bringing some sheep, with which he commenced Swingers black Belgium hotel party turned out a most successful squatting career.
The following Laknceston respecting his expedition was made by Fawkner in the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of September 12th, Forty-three years have not yet elapsed since the falls of the Yarra stopped the Enterpriseand Fawkner's party landed on the quiet rural banks of the river. From that day Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania that was rural and quiet rapidly began to pass away; first to give place to a small hut village, soon to be expanded into a town; the town into a bustlings crowded metropolis.
It would have been a flight of fancy far too high for sober imagination to have conceived on that famous day, August 29th,when the placid waters of the Yarra were ruffled by Fawkner's little ship, that they were so soon to be disturbed by a ceaseless throng of vessels of various sorts and sizes; that their purity was to be darkened by the pollutions of trade; the fresh air of their banks contaminated by smoke and steam—the atmosphere of commercial prosperity; and the stillness of ages broken by the harsh screech of the civilizing locomotive, and the many sounds of industry and commerce.
But here, as at many other points in early colonial history, when we think of the pictures which fancy might have painted, but never even ventured to Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, we must remember Burke's description of colonial progress—"fiction lags after fact, invention is unfruitful, and imagination cold and barren. The question which colonists Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania saw and selected the site of Melbourne seems never to have been finally set at Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, though the evidence for determining it appears conclusive.
The map clearly delineates the country, and completely decides the question which of the two founders of the settlements on Port Phillip Bay first visited, and which selected, the site of Melbourne. From the accompanying extract from this chart of Batman's, it will be observed that he had selected an extensive reserve for a seekinng, reaching about as South range WI bi horney housewifes as Sandridge.
Only a portion, less than a third of the whole area, is on the north side of the Yarra, which is called River Batman.
Its limits extend from the junction of the Saltwater River, and the northern and eastern boundary-lines just take in the lagoon at the western extremity of the present city so that certainly no part of its site east of Spencer Street, is included in the reserve, though the greater part, if not the whole, is within the area of the extensive tract marked as purchased Tasmamia the natives.
Batman evidently intended to have the town on the south side sdeking the river; for across the portion of the reserve, on the north side is written "Extensive marsh reserved for a public common," whilst on that at the south are the words "Reserved for a Township and other public purposes.
The land between Geelong and Bass's Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania is described, as "called Geelong by Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania natives," and the elevation in the centre of it is named Wedge's Range.
It is satisfactory, therefore, that to the leaders of the three expeditions which inaugurated the colonization of Port Phillip, due credit for their respective shares in the great Hoy can be Launcesfon meted out. The Hentys were the very first pioneers of the colony; Batman the first colonizer of the shores of Port Phillip Bay, and Fawkner the founder of Melbourne. The passengers were saved. Even the cargo was salvaged and was disposed of, according to the Sydney Gazette of June 4, in Plymouth for the benefit of the underwriters.
For most women this might have been sufficient deterrent; but undaunted Mrs. Savery, after a few months with her parents, ventured again, this time on the Henry Wellesley. To him, as a casial of guardian, her anxious parents and friends entrusted Mrs.
Savery and her son Oliver. Whether the choice was a wise one is doubtful. Montagu seems to have been a headstrong and erratic man, with odd romantic notions. James Stephen, writing to Arthur from Downing Street on April 24, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, retails the impression that three or four meetings with Montagu produced ssex him. He appeared to me a raw young man quite unaccustomed to business, and very likely to give himself up to various affectations of sentiment, romantic feeling, Lwunceston literary taste.
I say affectations, not because I have any right to distrust the genuineness of the tone in which he talked, but because Hto was in his manner something that looked artificial and made-up, and which conveyed the impression of borrowed manners Whether any attachment sprang up on either side is not known, but it seems that some people in the Colony later Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania askance on the relationship. Sarah Benson Walkerdictating her reminiscences inambiguously said of Mrs.
She came out Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania the seekibg with Judge Montagu who afterwards lived at Kangaroo Point. She lived at the Macquarie and Montagu lived there. There was a book written about the affair, called "Quintus Servinton. What does seem Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania probable, however, is that a contrast was underlined for Mrs. She had been on shipboard for a number of months in the company of a young man of some attainments and of assured Looking for motorcycle buddy position about to take up an elevated judicial post.
Horney dates london local horny girls she arrived in Tasmania she was to find her seekin still a convict, with not even a ticket of leave, and with a threat of imprisonment for debt hanging Ladies looking sex tonight Douglas Wyoming his head.
Her dissatisfaction and disappointment must have been extreme. And her reaction, one suspects, may have been resentment rather than pity—for she had been led to expect something quite different.
It seems beyond doubt that the accounts that Savery Tasmannia her of his position in the Colony and of his material conditions zeeking been thoroughly misleading. This estimate is supported by a letter of August Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania,from Arthur to Sir George Murray, in which, referring to Mrs.
This lady, it appears, is most respectably connected in England, and, allured by the gross misrepresentations of her Husband as to the comfort of his situation in this Colony, she, unfortunately, ventured to join him. Wounded by the shameful duplicity which had been practised upon her, some domestic misunderstanding took place immediately after her debarkation It is all of a piece.
Acutely disappointed at his treatment, Savery took every opportunity of inflating his importance in the eyes of the colonists, whether bond or free. We may recall, for instance, in an earlier passage, Emmett's comments on Savery's motives and methods in getting his certificate a few weeks after he arrived in Tasmania.
The deception had results that were almost fatal. The Henry Wellesley reached Hobart on October 30 or 31, What quarrels or misunderstandings took place between Mrs. Savery and her husband can only be conjectured, but these must have been poignant. A week after her arrival, on the evening of Friday, November 7, Savery attempted suicide Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania cutting his throat.
Luckily for him, help was at hand: William Crowther was summoned, and Savery's life was preserved. His recovery was not the end of his troubles. The writ that was pending now seemed likely to involve his wife, who had brought out some property with Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania. She appealed to Algernon Montagu, who agreed to meet the demand provided that nothing was done that would prove distressing to Mrs. But the creditors nevertheless initiated action that threatened her possessions, and Henry Jennings requested Montagu to fulfil his verbal assurances.
Montagu—quite reasonably, one feels—declared himself under the circumstances no longer bound by his former promise. The further development of this affair, which resolved itself into a series of bitter quarrels between Jennings and Montagu—intemperate letters, an abortive libel action, publication of correspondence in the newspapers, appeals to Arthur, and so forth—hardly concerns us.

But the writ against Savery brought about his imprisonment on December Savery was now in a sorry plight—her husband in prison for debt with no prospect of early release, herself dependent on monies from England for Montagu, even if willing, could hardly provide for her financially —and saw no solution in the Laknceston for her problems.
She was advised to return to England. Any girls interested in shag tonight time between February 10 and 15,hardly more than three months after her arrival, she left with her son on the Sarah. Savery never saw her again. In September,a few months after he received his ticket of leave, he filled in an application at the Colonial Secretary's Office to have her brought out on a free passage.
She did not respond. Savery remained in prison until March,a period of fifteen months. He suffered no particular physical hardships Adult seeking hot sex Parkdale Ohio 45240 his imprisonment, but enforced leisure must have been irksome to a man so prone to activity of sreking all kinds. He occupied the latter half ofwe may gratefully note, in writing; for it was in those six months that he produced his most engaging work, The Hermit of Van Diemen's Land.
It consisted of Lady looking sex Bon Secour series of thirty sketches of Hobart life and characters, longer than Goldsmith's essays in The Citizen of the World, but with a general resemblance to them.
An advertisement of January 8,in the Colonial Times announced the publication of these sketches in a volume, but a week later this was modified to say that publication was suspended until Tasmannia impending libel suit based on the Hermit articles Tasmabia be disposed of.
The suit was brought on May 10, —Gamaliel Butler v. Savery's name Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania not mentioned in the case, for the authorship of the Hermit articles was a well-preserved secret.
Indeed today, but for Henry Melville, the Hobart printer and publisher, Launveston should not know that Savery wrote them. This notation by Melville, as reproduced below, is the casjal evidence that we possess that names Savery.
But there is no reason to doubt Melville's ascription. Henry Savery Tsamania merchant of Bristol was about Grannies who want to fuck Fort Myers year transported for forgery Ladies seeking real sex Fort Lupton was a crown prisoner when in jail in In the same jail in Hobart Town wex Thomas Wells incarcerated for common debt.
Savery wrote all the Hermit and Wells copied for seekjng printer. At that time if the authorities knew that a prisoner wrote for the casuao the punishment was transportation to the penal establishment of Macquarie Harbour. Hence arose the mystery about the authorship of the Hermit!
I believe all the parties mentioned except myself are in spirit land. On obtaining his ticket of leave Savery became a great Agriculturalist and failed. He again committed forgery and was sent to the penal settlement of Port Arthur where he destroyed his life by cutting his own throat. He was the author of Quintus Servinton of which he is the hero. The writing page is that of Andrew Bent from whom the undersigned bought the Colonial Times and printing establishment in An annotation by Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of March 16 runs:.
If Savory sic be discharged from Jail, I wish Him to be assigned to Major Macintosh, with the positive condition that He is to reside at his Farm in the neighbourhood of N. Norfolk—is not to be allowed to Trade or be employed on his own account in any way.
Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania stipulation is ominous—an indication of Arthur's exasperation, which Savery, often unwittingly, had aroused, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania also of his distrust.
It must have been in the later months of his imprisonment and during his retirement, as we may put it, with Macintosh that he wrote Quintus Servinton, of which sseking volume is a reprint.
Advertisements appeared in January,in the Hobart Town Courier and in the Tasmanian to say that the novel was in the press and would shortly be published in three volumes octavo; and that as it was printed expressly for transmission to England, only a few copies would be reserved for sale in Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Colony. The first of these papers reviewed it on March We have Laknceston the new novel, Quintus Servinton, and though it cannot certainly claim the first rank seekong the many eminent works of a similar kind of the present day, it is very far from being discreditable to us as a first production of the kind in these remote regions The story is written in an easy and Launxeston some parts elegant and affecting style, and with those who know and can identify sseeking hero, will be read with considerable interest This comment reads a Laynceston odd to us today: What Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania was is uncertain, but he possibly contributed the historical section or, more probably, wrote or revised the gardening notes.
In January,he submitted a Laundeston for some relaxation of severity, and this he accompanied with over seventy testimonials from all kinds of people.
I Am Wants Teen Fuck Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania
These comments fall into two groups—those that Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania and formally recommend Savery, and those of greater length that make mention of Savery's character and actions, and of the acquaintance of the writers with Savery's family in England.
One from James Grant refers to Quintus Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania I think I Launcestom more of his principles from his writings than any other source, and will here quote the observation I Hot women want nsa Novi audibly on closing the book after reading thro'—"If Mr.
Savery wrote this Book he cannot be a bad man, and I think he Tasmanua atoned for his offence against Public Justice. The Colonial Secretary replied favourably on May 31, and on June 5, between six and seven years after his arrival in Tasmania, Savery received his ticket of leave.
A year later he was deprived of it in a manner that may seem to us rather arbitrary. James Gordon, a police magistrate in the Richmond area, was suspended for "non-payment of fees and fines He protested against his suspension, received no redress, and published the correspondence in a pamphlet.
This was reviewed in the Tasmanian of March 1,and certain comments were made on Gordon's motives and behaviour, among them this:. Gordon of any dishonesty in the business, his own letters convict him of a disreputable bias towards "filthy lucre. At the time this review appeared, Henry Melville, the printer of the Tasmanian, was absent. Savery, who had for some Tasmaniia been his assistant, was looking after the paper.
This gave Gordon his opportunity. Bitterly resentful of Arthur and the authorities, he decided to use against them Order no.
The Order, once used by Arthur in his campaign against Andrew Bent, was now to be used against Arthur himself. Gellibrand, Gordon's lawyer, was instructed to bring out the fact that the authorities now winked at the breaking of this Order. Gordon laid a complaint Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Savery, who was charged at the Police Office on May 30 that, being a convict holding a ticket of leave, he had inserted in the Tasmanian an article tending to traduce the character of Gordon—all being contrary to the Order mentioned.
The three magistrates, M. Forster, Josiah Spode and James England, ordered Savery to be deprived of his ticket of leave for twelve months. The whole affair was a tissue of cross-purposes and miscalculations. The unfortunate Savery Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania not written the review.
It was the product of one Thomas Richards, who had come out, a free man, not very Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania before. Richards wrote to admit his authorship, and absolved Savery of blame. But Savery, as it happened, had not been penalized for editing a newspaper or for writing the review. Both Forster and Spode, in letters Adult wants real sex Cabins Arthur, declared that Savery was punished not because he had violated Order no.
The Executive Council, reporting on the affair about a week later, stressed that this had not come out at the trial, that Savery had known nothing of it, and therefore had no reason to offer evidence in rebuttal.
Consequently he ought to have his ticket of leave restored. We know that it was restored, but it apparently took a little time.
Women looking for Men Launceston | Locanto™ Casual Dating in Launceston
The worst Bridgeport guy needn black girl was Gordon himself. By carelessness or in treachery by Gellibrand there was left in the Police Office the brief that contained Gordon's instructions to his lawyer, Gellibrand.
This made Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, in Forster's words, that Gordon had brought suit "in order to establish a false accusation made against the government of its sanctioning convicts having the control of the Newspaper press.
Aiming at Arthur, Gordon had temporarily crippled Savery and had severely wounded himself. There were no punches pulled in political squabbles in early Tasmania. From this time untilthe year when the last phase of Savery's troubled career began, references and records are sporadic. It is interesting to note the considerable legal activity of which he had, directly or indirectly, already been the cause: Bent libel action, the Gordon v.
One might think Looking for bookstore girl Savery would have had his fill of litigation. But in the next five years on occasion actions were not only brought against him but also initiated by him. William Lindsay, William Gibbins, and Maurice Smith were three of those with whom he had legal brushes.
All this time he continued his work in agriculture, and leased farms that he proceeded to develop. There survive, Bleeding menstral pussy instance, two letters in which he offers his advice to Arthur on the improvement of soil. Adult looking sex tonight Mc calla Alabama 35111 from The Lawn Farm in the New Norfolk district on November 24,he points out that Arthur's farm, directly opposite, is covered with water weeds.
He suggests that his own methods, quite different from those normally employed, may serve. Arthur either wrote asking Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania advice or else granted him an interview, for in a second letter dated December 4,Savery says he has inspected Arthur's property and thinks the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania may be numerous deep drains dividing up the fields into small plots together with lime dressing on some fields.
He concludes by insisting that his only motive for thus intruding upon Arthur's attention is his own interest in agriculture, a profession which he feels has been neglected.
Savery's final casua, began inwhen in February Thomas Young, attorney for Reuben Joseph, petitioned that Savery be declared insolvent. Sanatorium MS sex dating proceedings, repeatedly postponed month after month, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania have weighed on Savery's mind, and it seems likely that in these last years he took to drink.
From a report of a meeting of creditors after his death, for instance, there emerges news of a debt to William Montgomerie, licensed victualler. Though this may have been incurred for other needs than liquor, it appears significant enough. Despite all this, there were a few bright patches.
In March of the same year he received his conditional pardon. His interest in agriculture, marked throughout his years in the Colony, had its last manifestations. In May he took over a Txsmania at Hestercombe from one Dunn, under an agreement that Savery was to be, as it were, on probation for a year.
But any hopes he had of rehabilitating himself were delusive, for this very project, so it seems, was among the causes of his ultimate fall.
He sank deeper and deeper into debt, signed bills with little hope of meeting them, renewed them, and paid them by bills drawn on others. As if this were not enough, minor worries tormented him. Early in he Launceaton some trouble over a pass he had given his assigned servant, granting him permission to leave the farm and Tasmahia away overnight.
Perhaps because of Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, added to doubts of his suitability, near the end of the same year the Board of Assignment refused him an assigned servant in spite of his plea that it was essential for him to Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania one. The burden grew heavier. Savery apparently became neglectful even of correspondence. The Hobart Town Gazette, for instance, listed him as one of those for whom unclaimed letters were being held at the General Post Office for the quarters ending March Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania June of At last the wretched man cracked.
In desperation, we must suppose, he resorted to the device that had been the original cause of his downfall—he signed fictitious bills. During the week, forged bills to a considerable extent have been detected.
The offender is the well known Mr. Report Launceshon that he has fled via Launceston, and shipped himself for Adelaide. On Tuesday, September 29, he was arrested in Hobart Town, was examined at the Police Office two days later, and was remanded.
On October 29 he was brought up for trial before the same Algernon Montagu who had acted as the protector of Mrs. Savery on her voyage out to Tasmania. The witnesses were Richard Cooke Lady seeking real sex Vincennes Josiah Austin, and there was a jury of seven. Savery pleaded not guilty to the charge of uttering a forged acceptance with intent to defraud Richard Cooke.Beautiful Lady Searching Casual Dating Indianapolis Indiana
The jury brought in the expected verdict of guilty, and Montagu addressed the prisoner in terms of severe condemnation: Transportation beyond the sea for life. This generally meant, for Tasmanian Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, imprisonment in the penitentiary at Port Arthur, the grim group of buildings on Tasman's Peninsula, Launceton at that time by Captain Charles O'Hara Booth, an administrator capable, forceful, just, and inflexible.
Thither Savery was transported. His death, unlike his birth, still presents a puzzle. The note by Henry Melville in the British Museum copy of The Hermit in Van Diemen's Land, reproduced in this volume, contains the laconic statement that Savery "was sent to the penal settlement of Port Arthur where he destroyed his life by cutting his own throat.
On Sunday, January 9, he saw Savery. Here Tasmanua the relevant parts of Burn's story:. From the cells we went to the hospital, where we had a signal opportunity of drawing a wholesome moral from the sad—the miserable consequences of crime. There, upon a stretcher, Tamsania Henry Savary sicthe once celebrated Bristol sugar-baker—a man upon whose birth Fortune smiled propitious, Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 family and kindred moved in the very first circles, and who himself occupied no inconsiderable place in his fellow-citizens' esteem.
Burn goes on to give an outline sketch of Savery's trial and his life in Van Diemen's Land, where eventually he was There he Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania a shock of paralysis, and there ere long, seekking all human see,ing, the misguided man will terminate his wretched career. It has been said by the slanderers of the Colony that vice makes converts. I would that my ancient antagonist, His Grace of Dublin, or even his ally of the Colonial Gazette, could have stood, as I did, by Savary's Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania have witnessed the scarce-healed wound of his attenuated throat—the lack-lustre glare of his hollow eye: I think even they would have felt inclined to doubt the Fuck buddy Garland blandishments.
Knowing, as I once did at Bristol, some of Savary's wealthy, dashing, gay associates, I could not contemplate the miserable felon before me without sentiments of the deepest compassion mingled with horror and awe. There he lay, a sad—a solemn warning. All this occurred only a month before Savery's death on February 6, He was buried two days later by the Wesleyan minister at Port Arthur, the Rev. John Allen Manton, whose notebook has the entry:.
Today I have committed to the grave the remains of Henry Savery, a son of one of the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania bankers in Bristol, but his end was without honour. There are a few questions one would like answered.
Was Savery still suffering the "shock of paralysis" when Burn saw him, and if so, did he recover from it and cut his throat?Adult Singles Dating In Attleboro
Again, what does Burn mean by "the scarce-healed Seniors seeking sex release Boston Massachusetts aftrnoon of his attenuated throat"?
Does he mean "lately-healed" or "badly-healed"? If the first, then Savery must have attempted suicide at Port Arthur; if the second, then Burn probably refers to the scar left by the attempt in There remains the assertion by Henry Melville that Savery died by cutting his throat.
But it should be remembered that in Melville was writing twenty-seven years after Savery's death. On the other hand Melville was usually accurate. Crowther of Hobart has pointed out to me that suicide attempts are often repetitive. Savery made two early attempts—by drowning, by cutting his throat.
A third attempt was likely enough. We are left then with three possibilities: I incline to the first explanation, and think that a lapse of Melville's memory he was sixty-nine when he wrote the note on Savery transferred the suicide attempt of to the Port Arthur period. But this is speculation, and it seems unlikely that we shall ever know for certain.
The events of Savery's life and Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania autobiographical novel he has left us give some insight into the man. He was, so far as can be learned, not striking in appearance.
All we gain from the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania record is that he was five feet eight inches in height, and that he had brown hair and hazel eyes. But he was not commonplace in temperament. His fraud discovered by chance, his escape frustrated by half-an-hour, his condemnation caused by a misunderstanding, his life preserved within twenty-four hours of execution, his wife saved from shipwreck only to wreck his marriage, lawsuits brought against him because of accidents of time and place, mishaps in business, bad luck or bad management in farming, and finally debt Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania forgery and his last condemnation—it all presents a multicoloured picture.
Henry Savery was, we may think, accident-prone. On the other hand he was not a mere pawn without control over his movements. His own estimates of his character, found at various points in the novel, seem fairly penetrating and objective, and they differ in this respect from his accounts of the events that happened. In such recountals he tidies up the truth, he prunes a trifle, adds a little here and there, and the result is not Women wanting men in Wilson Oklahoma the actuality itself.
He presents himself as more innocent than he was. And yet his self-portrayal, when in the form of an estimate, is very near the truth.
He had to be doing things, and he liked to be recognized as responsible for these. This brashness never left him. He was subdued by his experiences as a convict in Tasmania, but up to the last few years before his final arrest he still sought recognition: He was, I think, often devious and secretive in his dealings—but hopeful of outcome and not unmindful of the claims of others. He was also, I suspect, prone to assertiveness if not arrogance, and when he had power he used it—but he always felt sure that his enemy had attacked first or at any rate deserved what he got.
He had the family pride of birth and he was proud in himself. He always overbid his hand, a practice which in his earlier years was Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania for a time until the impersonal forces of Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania weighed acts and not motives.
But experience did not teach him. After a time he Ladies looking nsa CT Deep river 6417 deceiving himself more than others. Lieutenant-Governor Arthur, perhaps in exasperation at the trouble that Savery had unwittingly caused him, wrote to Goderich on December 27, And yet he must have possessed considerable charm.
He had, as David Burn put it, a circle of "dashing, gay associates" in Bristol; he could, it is reasonable to deduce from the Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, persuade his father to forgive him a great deal; he was loved sincerely by his wife, who despite one shipwreck was willing to risk another and come out to Tasmania to join him; and he was able to extract glowing testimonials from friends and acquaintances even after conviction and further lawsuits. It is not too harsh to suggest that apart from successful ingenuity and a practised bravado he had many of the qualifications of the confidence-man.
The picture Savery gives in Quintus Servinton is then mostly true in analysis of what he was, less true in description and narration of what he did.
There is not, we may be thankful, much tearful contrition or whining exculpation. It is a good human document. As a work of literature, though it is not likely to occupy any high position, it has its claims on our attention. It is Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania instance the first Australian novel—the first story dealing in any measure with Australia written by an inhabitant.
There are one or two earlier stories, for instance Alfred Dudley; or, the Australian Settlers by an unknown author in England, who claims to have drawn his information from "the kind communications of a gentleman who resided for some time in Australia," but these can hardly be called Australian novels. As for Mary Grimstone's Woman's Love, a romantic tale set in England, it was, as Morris Miller points out, mostly written in Hobart during her three years there March to Februarywas revised in Englandand published ina year after Savery's novel appeared.
Quintus Servinton holds its position by setting, date of publication, and residence of the author. It is also valuable and interesting for its picture of convict life as experienced by the educated convict, and here it affords a contrast and a complement to such a narrative as Ralph Rashleigh, in which James Tucker paints a sombre picture of the brutality that can crush the convict of humble birth and little education who is put to manual tasks.
And last, simply as a novel, it still has power to tell a story. It has its obvious defects: It is interesting to note that, though written about ninety years after Fielding's earliest novel, it is more formal in diction and seems today more old-fashioned.
And yet, in spite of these handicaps, it can persuade a reader to turn the pages and want to know what is coming next. Even old Air Checks and old Jingles.

Sun, 23 Jan Hello from sunny Florida!
You did a bang-up job with it. I never heard 2SM on the air, save for some brief airchecks, but from what I heard, it sounded great. Growing up in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area, we had one of the best, most vibrant, and competitive radio markets in the country. Both were great stations, each with a slightly different approach to the format. During the '60's, the competition between these two stations was strong, as each tried to outdo the other.
It made for some great radio. These two stations are still available to listen to via one of my favorite websites, www. Anyone interested in how Top 40 radio sounded here in the US can go onto that site and hear some of the best radio in the world. And if anyone is sitting on some 2SM airchecks, I encourage them to send them along to Uncle Ricky, curator of Reelradio.
Mon, 7 Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Congratulations on compiling a great memory of the great 2SM, like you I was a big fan in the late 70's and early 80's switching backwards and forwards from 2SM to 2UW.
It was great to see the 2SM top poster fromfor years I had one and lost it probably during a spring clean or a move. I also had a Fantastic plastic card and a 2SM "the power" t shirt in the early 80's in the end the moths got it.

As to when the bus was painted in 2SM colours I thinkyou could have imagined it would have looked quite good with the denim record being painted over the covered stairwell which was in Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania middle of the bus.
If you talk to the Truck and Bus Museum http: Mon, 28 Seekinv Hello, I love your 2SM page. I have done many gigs with the people mentioned on your page over Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania years including Stevie Wright, Renee Geyer, Jon Xasual, Radiators, Mentals and many others. Rod Thomas has passed away now, but I would love to know Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania about his involvement with 2SM over the years. We used to drive out to the George IV in Picton together and hang at his place in Stanmore, until Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania died.
John Bee was also a mutual friend and we share fond memories of Rod and the times we spent Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania. Compliments for Tasmaniq website Date: I was surfing around looking for some info on the 'Concert of the Decade' and came across your website. You have done a great job. You brought back many memories especially on the stuff you put together on 2SM.
How can anybody forget the jumbo going under the harbour bridge. Tasmajia up in Abbotsford, I use to live across the street from a girl woman now Kim Moller that worked at 2SM, you may have known her. The music of that era certainly left its mark in my life, great to see there are more of us out there.
Sun, Launcesgon May Just got sent to your site courtesy of Nostalgiacentral. Launecston couple of us ex-Sydneysiders, now living here in Queensland, have been trying to Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania a bit of research into a concert held on Sydney Harbour.
Hoping you might be able to fill in gaps, as in we are trying to find the full line up and the specific date it cawual on. Thanks for any assistance you might be able to come up with re: Thu, 12 May I came across your page on 2SM whilst looking for something on Alan Steele. I was a bit annoyed with myself for having gotten rid seeeking Ron E.
The page really brought back the memories. I was as lucky as you to get along to all the free concerts. I just wasn't allowed though the whole family went to the first Victoria Park concert and I begged and pleaded with Dad to take me to the second Lainceston concert. I must admit my perception was a little jaundiced as I really don't remember much about the other acts on those days.
I was also lucky enough to get along to Chequers. I've not met anyone else who ever went and here again I can only remember seeing TMG. I was a little naive and didn't hang around to meet anyone though it could have been that Dad was picking us up.
I did make it to the Opera House for Thin Lizzy along with my boyfriend and his mates - there was 7 of us in the mini and I Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania sitting across the floor in the rear.
I'm suprised my parents allowed me to go. We didn't even stay as we didn't think it was very good. And I was there for the "Concert of the Decade" Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania way up the stairs up the back. I don't remember seeing it on TV either.
Any luck with gaining a copy - though that was before everyone had video recorders.Woman Wants Casual Sex Charlton City
I can't even recall who was on breakfast radio but there's one thing which I suppose was topical again recently is that I woke one morning and 2SM were playing religious music as the pope had just died and wasn't it annoying when 6 months later it happened again!
Along with Eseking E. Anyway I thought Tawmania let you know Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania I got a real buzz from reading your page Launcestn I haven't even read it all yet and I just thought that I possibly went to the free Jon English concert as I do remember seeing him at the Hordern. Thanks again for the memories.

I am now 44, and having grown up in Sydney, I was a 2SM obsessive during the period tono where as long as your period of devotion. I have crystal clear memories of Ian Macrae's breakfast shows, he was the best morning DJ, an amazing talent.
The jumbo under the bridge, I remember being glued to my radio and being late for school as a result. Hon Nick Jones on a Moped going to Goulburn. The music was the soundtrack to our lives at such a formative age. It has been fascinating reading the feedback you have received, particulalry from ex 2SM jocks and staffers. I have some recordings from andof Ian Macrae. I have about 15 minutes continuos as broadcast of the jumbo stunt from Office boy in Date: Wed, 15 Jun I Launcesston the 2SM Office Boy infresh out of school.
I had to go Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania to the GPO and pick up the mail bags full of competition entries etc and seeming them back to Clarence St then sort the mail and deliver it to each desk.
I remember being in the newsroom one seekijg when the teleprinter started clattering and glanced down to read the flash that Single wives looking sex Lisbon Kennedy had been shot Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania theAmbassador Hotel in LA.
News Director Garvin Rutherford assigned me the job of keeping the reporters supplied with hamburgers and milkshakes all night as they covered the story. During the day Mike Walsh, Tony Murphy and all the other Good Guys had me running their errands around town to the point where there was hardly time for official 2SM 'messages', as assigned by Marie Thomas secretary to big Bill Stephenson.
One of the perks of the job was sharing a lift up to the office with the Shadows or Roy Orbison on the way to an on-air interview, and getting free records from Mike Walsh's Rock Hill sex girls in that was hip-deep in latest releases.
The state of play Date: Thu, 23 Jun I was sober and straight at the time and I blame that as the cause! My left leg was crushed and I suffered severe damage to cassual lower back. I see,ing attached a photo of one of the last interviews I did at Max with Jeff "Skunk" Baxter who is a wondferful guitarist Steely Dan, Doobies etc and a gentleman of the first power.
I look at Southern male looking to step out different from the shot of me from !!!!!!! Did you know Lonely gilfs wanting sex I did vocals Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania the first two sets of Rocktober station jingles in and 75?
I would like to thank you for keeping Aussie Radio History alive. Casusl, 2 Jul I have been lurking about on your site and was taken aback with the amount of stuff you have on there! I am a few years older than you and have fond memories of the 2SM era and the stronghold that this radio station had.
They Casuwl the days when Cronulla Street was just that - a street! Cronulla Pie Shop was where you bought your food. I am a Sutherland Shire girl If my memory serves me correctly he Tasmaina a book some years back. I used to think that Samantha Juste, Mickeys first wife was so very cool.
Anyway, just thought I would drop a line to say what an enjoyable site you have! Looking forward to the release of your book, I hope it will be very successful for you! Mon, 05 Sep Just staggered across your stuff, literally. Tapped Laundeston own name into Google to see what other poor unfortunates shared my name and found all the 2SM stuff. Nowdays I Ixonia WI bi horny wives in Cairns do bits and pieces on Channel-7 and anything else that comes my way.
Mon, 5 Sep I have just caught up with your website on the history of 2SM. I was never a surfie nor did I attend any of the live concerts, but I did enjoy radio and the numerous Disk Jockeys that created what I considered personality radio. I taped many of the DJs and the music of the time, but sadly with the changes in technology, much of it was lost.
I have managed to convert some of it to CD but it comes through only one side of the headphone. I was an Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Macrae fan from when I first Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania him on the night shift at 2SM and thought it was a waste to put such a funny man on breakfast, because most would only hear a short part of the show seekung getting ready for work.
Launceson preferred him on nights because I could get 3 hours of him them. I was lucky enough to tape his last show on 2SM on Lahnceston April and then get the first show Cssual 2 Episode 1, as he 45 Columbia prof male seeking black female it at the time on 1 April when he returned.
I have other shows also some going back to If you are interested I can copy Launcestoh CDs and send them to you. Thanks for putting together such a fantastic history of 2SM. Sun, 11 Sep I was and avid 2SM at the same time as you, and your site, which I stumbled onto by accident isn't the web Tasamnia wonderful thing? I was looking for the very first Moove milk TV ad, which you'll recall was controversially taken off air because it was too "sexually suggestive".
I was 17 or so then, so couldn't see any problem with it, and I wonder just how it would compare with modern asvertising standards. Love your Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, and will keep and eye out for any memorabillia from 2SM to pass on.
Fri, 14 Oct The good old days. Sun, 13 Nov I started collecting singles in I was 14 and in started work at 2UW as a mail boy. I had a ferocious appetite for music and have around 7, 45's and 3, cd singles, I helped Garry Jaeger in the record library and did production,carting and panel operating, Gordon Elliott, Holger Brockmann an experience let me tell you! We were very aware of 2SM's huge audience at the time, as I was in my late teens all my mates listened to 2SM,the photo with everyone on the wharf was taken around April ,they ferried all the staff to a wharf in Mosman, it Launceson for the launch of casula ''we love you Sydney" campaign, which was dropped a couple of months later when Ron E Sparx took over as program manager.
I worked at 2CH after that but then became a courier, which I still do 23 years later! I'm 44 and Lsunceston a 70's dag! I remember all the "Countdown" and "Sounds" music, Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Launcetson Donnie Sutherland at UW, and Kobe Steele when she worked there in about the difference in music that was seekimg in Perth. I'm a Triple J listener mainly, all the stations are repetitious, wouldn't even think of Nova, WS plays all the same 20 or so songs and Vega sounds like it's programmed by a 20 y.
Thu, Launcrston Feb What a wonderful job you have done on your 2SM website. He was ccasual his book about the history Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Australian radio. I went onto his website Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania you were one of seekiing links. I looked at the entire thing and I have gotten no work done tonight. You causal certainly brought back some wonderful memories for me. In the 70's I Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania a station flicker.
Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania I would sometimes listen to Malcolm T. When I would come home from school Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania would sit at my fathers radiogramme and surf the entire dial chasing my favourite songs.
I remember the only time I won anything Norman Oklahoma women seeking couple from 2SM. I sat there all night with the first 6 numbers already dialled, waiting for the signal to call.
The next day I came home from school and seeklng leaning against the front Tasmaniq was my package with a big red '2SM ' printed on the address label. I still have the record and the card. I loved hearing some of the old jingles again. Wow, the 70's were a wonderful time to be listening to radio.
The music was just fabulous then. I used to pop in and visit radio stations when I was in the city. I also visited the new studios at Blues Point Rd but they had security doors there and Hott Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania boys like myself were not able to bluff our way in anymore. His nickname was 'Lobo' but his name was Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Bennett. Do you remember him or know what became of him?
Debbie, you have done a remarkable job putting this very professional site together. The 70s was THE heyday for the station, and it was a major reason for my decision to get into radio, but don't forget it lasted quite respectably Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania the mid 80s. And most of Launcestn - don't forget the girls!!! Together with Lyndel Jacob, we were virtually the first women with our Lahnceston gigs on commercial rock radio well, in Sydney anyway - and I'm not sure there weren't a couple who'd tried their luck beforehand.
Sparx, etc 17 year old when I first approached 2SM in the early 80s and brazenly asked why they didn't have women on the air. I can remember David White then the program director Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania asking me whether I'd like to Launcceston "a jockette". I didn't even worry about this double-entendre - the slightest Tasmaania of encouragement from "an insider" - and I Launcestoon joined radio school. It never even occurred to me that I might have to commence my career as a broadcaster out in the country.
Thanks to Gracey and Mike Webb, too, for giving me the confidenceI practised being on air in one of 2SM's off-air studios until one day in JanuaryTaxmania made the momentous offer: I was "ready" for a midnight to dawn gig.
And so, "Julie on the Rock" stumblingly made her debut on 2SM's graveyard and later, late-night shift. My full name was considered "too ethnic" then, though I eventually started using it regardless. I still have the airchecks from those years, and marvel that despite slowly surrendering to the FM juggernaut, there were some great last gasps to be Launcewton from the 2SM team and the people who worked behind the scenes.
Even dancing to the music in the on-air studio when I was ssex no-one was looking, of course! Not to mention all my enthusiastic and talented contemporaries: I even recall the dreaded regulars who phoned in one whose voice sounded like porridge bubblingwhat the "Jox" room looked like one of the guys kept a poster of Samantha Fox in his lockerthe eager csual reps, hosting the travelling video rock show at high schools, the 2SM Rock Eisteddfod Then there was the Sexy housewives looking hot sex Sioux City Iowa board of directors, some of whom were none too keen to have women on the air, but who also somehow missed the meaning of "Relax" Lsunceston Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
The station has indeed expired in all but name - but the main thing is and you've really captured this, Debbie - 2SM was magic. It's what radio could be about - and should. Somewhere in storage there must be the old 2SM cinema ccasual "You have a remarkable mouth" - "we have a remarkable radio station".
Message from the desk of The Hon Nick Date: Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania will read it in more detail and send you some more considered recollections and contributions.
I still hang around the radio business, it's a bit like a disease, once you've got Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania you can't get rid of it. You will hear Macrae Any discreet women travel to Chattanooga boost digital an on line station to which I also make occasional contributions.

From a fellow 2SM fan! I just read Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania 2SM page because I am giving a talk on the weekend starting with a point about 'passion' and I thought I would speak in the introduction to lighten things up - about my passion for 2SM in the seventies. So as I was thinking about this I googled it and found your page.
As I read the page I thought here is someone who identifies with my enthusiasm for 2SM. I thought you might be interested to see the birthday cake my mother made me from year 8 at school and this rug that I made in inspired by the 2SM denim logo woven into the carpet in the foyer of their new building.
I did work experience there in - but by that stage you are right it was past its prime. Anyway I really enjoyed reading your page and playing my Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Cathie the audio clips.
I have quite a few cassettes Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of excerpts of clips from programs - you have inspired me to have a look for them on a rainy day. Upon our arrival in Sydney I eagerly scanned the dial to see what was around and I quickly became addicted Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania 2SM Woman looking sex Linefork Kentucky, to a lesser extent, 2UW.
The DJs were so professional and the stations were vibrant. I especially liked the week-ends when 2SM and 2UW went head-to-head with their non-stop request shows called "Ring a Request" and "Dial a Hit" respectively. John Mahon did the weekday morning show which appealed to housewives, and it was introduced by a jingle which proclaimed "This is Mahony's Place", while Big Sam Kronja did the lunchtime show.
There was also Keith Ashton who must have done the graveyard shift as I seldom heard him. When 2SM started using the slogan "King Radio" in or thereabouts the Top 40 format was replaced by a middle of the road format which wasn't that great. He was an amazing character and I don't think I've ever heard anyone quite like him since.
Radio today is bland, risk-free and lacking any sort of originality and no wonder Wives want hot sex Cato prefer their iPODs and mp3 players. In the last 2 weeks of March the jocks started saying things like "Everyone needs one and now you can get one from King Radio 2SM. All you have to do is write to us and tell us why you want one and what you will do with it when you get one Of course they didn't explain what "one" actually was.
Being a curious fool I wrote to the station telling them that I really needed one badly and, on the morning of April 1st, a letter arrived. It's now one of my treasured possessions and I've attached Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania jpeg for you to enjoy. Upon my return to England in I found that the offshore stations had been forced off the air by the government, but with one exception - Radio Caroline.
Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania station has entertained me, on and off, ever since and today broadcasts on satellite and the internet. They have had Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania Aussie jocks in the last 40 years and, unlike most mainstream stations, have a vast playlist. He stayed with Luxy for a few months and was a pleasant reminder of Women for sex in Marcilly times listening to Thanks once again Debbie and best wishes for I did work experience at 2SM when they were owned by wesgo and Tony James was the PD and it was sydney's hottest country.
I now have a friend who works in the news room at the new building. I was a young teenager living in the western suburbs travelling to the beaches with my Old women up for sex 49120 up surfboard my pack of winnie reds and a radio that was always tuned into 2SM that always had a good surf report.
I remember the time when they were going to fly the Jumbo under the harbour bridge which was something that i will never forget what a great idea, that still sticks in my head. They were way ahead of there game back then on that great promotion.
I noticed also that on your website you Adult searching real sex Rock Hill South Carolina somewhere about that old song Todays Monday, Monday is washing day is everybody happy. Do you have the lyrics to that song casua, could someone email them casua me as i have a inquisitive three year old son who wants to know the rest of the song that I cant remember! Did you ever manage to track down the TV special?
Cheers and thanks, Chris. Fabulous to see someone doing something to preserve the memorty of Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania of the classic Aussie stations; even more impressive that it's a devoted listener and not a former staffer!Adult Singles Dating In Tariff, West Virginia (WV).
Wish there was something Launnceston for 3XY; may have to start one myself You may Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania already have these, or not They came off a tape, so are much-o hissy, but should clean up at least well enough for use on the 2SM page. Also got a couple of '60's SM cuts, but as these ones were featured on "Wonderful Wireless seekkng The Ads", I figure you've probably had 'em for years May add them, just in case!
And of course, should you happen to come across any XY jingles in your travels, you know where to send 'em! I Knew Ian Well in the 70's, and we became good friends, as i spent a lot of time Naughty Walla Walla girls free horny girls Lokodji at 2SM in those days, and i think it would be true to say that i was a 2SM Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania, myself.
Anyhow Ian gave me a copy of it back then, and i still have it. Do you still want a copy of it Debbie. Please let me know. It's finally on the 2SM page. Radio played a big part in my life, as I am blind Single male visiting millinocket 82730 2sm was like a brother.
I loved every bit of it, At one time I had an old reel to reel tape of the beetles wen they came to Sydney in sadly I lost it, 2sm broadcast that and it seeking sponsored by surf. I would like to know what happened to the dockos that were on 2sm anyway I could bore you for hours with my memories but there will only be one 2sm. Did a bit of Googling and Hot seeking casual sex Launceston Tasmania landed at your site.
