THE SUPREME COURT, OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. On Saturday last, Thomas Ryley, a set- tler, residing at Pitt Water, was arraigned for the wilful murder of James Kearney, his assigned servant; and pleaded-Not Guilty. His Majesty's Attorney-General (J. T. Gellibrand, Esq.) then solemnly com- menced his case for the prosecution. He appropriately introduced with much ener- gy and pathos a brief but comprehensive stricture on the hideous effects of intoxica- tion, which vice was alas ! far, very far too prevalent in this Colony ; and he proceeded to state his conviction, in which we re-   spectfully coincide, that to the influence of intemperate liquors not only the specific misdeed charged against the prisoner might, if indeed he were guilty, be im-   puted, but the majority of crimes that out-   raged humanity were indebted for their   origin and consummation. It appeared in evidence that on the day Kearney was killed, he, the prisoner, and...
