THE "TIMES" ON CHURCH DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 September 1845
TUE "TIMES" O.N CHURCH DISCIPLINE. Tim reports of certain cases in the Eccle- siastical Courts, which have lately appeared in our columns, will not greatly edify the public, nor improve the credit of tho clergy. Such exposures are on all accounts most disastrous as well as disgraceful. We are glad to find, however, that the proceedings against the delinquents were promoted by letters of request from their Bishops. Tardy though justice may have been, yet it has had its course, and thc suit has been instituted by those who possess authority forthat purpose. Still wo say that it would have been far better bad this exhibition of priestly culpabi- lity been either altogether avoided or much more severely punished. When such men have been officially convicted, they ought to be summarily and exetnplarily dealt with. Religion, be it remembered, always suffers by the moral defalcations of its teachers, and there is no readier way to "sap a creed" than through the vices of tts appointed minis...

Mr. Sergeant Murphy re- plied, nnd by way nf shewing1 what value wai to be attached to Mr. Grant's testimony referred to another work hy that author, " Kuntlom Recollections of the House of Commons," in which Members aro de- scribed in respect to their persons and opin- ions, and contended that nn opinion might he formed of the correctness of his repre- sentations in the one by the other cano which was familiar to them.

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, SEPT. 12. THE TAX OF CONVICTISM, ELIZA BENWELL'S TMAL. THE trial of Eliza Benwell reported in our last and present numler has closed. It commenced on the morning of the 5 th instant, and concluded at a late hour on thc 11th, thus having occupied six whole days. The parties whose guilt nr innocence was in question in this trial ore nil British convicts; thc jury cmpnnelled consisted of free men, tradesmen of this town,-who have been required to give six days to the trial-to expose their business to the disndvantnge and loss incident to their withdrawal from it-to leave it in some enses nt thc mercy of prisoner-servants ; nnd if not to sustnin the expense of putting up nt nn hotel, to throw that burden upon the colonial reve- nue. Thc service of a juror is in England the reasonable price which must bc paid for n great public protection ; but there it is occasional. Here it is extortionate-ana- logous rather to thc fixed, periodical service of a judge...

NEW NORFOLK MURDER. SUPREME COURT. CMMINAI. SITTINGS. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Civil Jury. CONTINUATION OF THE TRIAL OF ELIZA BENWELL. TUESDAY, 9TH SEPTEMBER, 1845. Mr. Arthur Barker was called and sworn ; but aa Dr. Bedford was in attendance to give hU opinion of Dr. Dawe's evidence of the previous evening-, bU examination was taken first, and resulted in this-that from the evi- dence of Dr. Dawe, he (Dr. Bedford) could not form an opinion as to the cause of Jane Saunders's death. Mr. A. Barker then deposed that he was at Mr. Elwyn's house on the night of the ISth January ; he first went there before sundown, and leaving his horse, walked over to New Norfolk, to the Bush lan, whence he returned to Mr. Elwyn's about ten minutes past ten : Mr. and Mrs. Elwyn were in the parlour, with Mr. Guy and.Mr. Wells ; wit- ness was quite sure supper was on the table when he came in. but could not say whether there was a tray or a cloth, or whether supper had begun; witness had...
TRIAL BY JURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
TRIAL DY JURY. WE have ever been of opinion that one of the most grievous burdens imposed upon this community by the convict system, is thc ordinary Trial by Jury of the prisoners. Thc increase of criminals not only obliges the employment of a constabulary force more suitable to a state of civil warfare than to tranquil times, and of expensive Courts sitting with thc frequency of a market where the necessaries of life arc to be sought ¡ but thc labour and responsibility of jury- men is accumulating with the most oppres- sive weight. A population which grows only by the addition of prisoners must of necessity furnish an increasing quota to the local gnols, and it requires the gravest con- sideration of the Colony whether the tax imposed upon thc time and money of free- men, may not lend them to regard thc jury law ns a curse, and impair the public re- gard for one of the noblest institutions which in England is eulogized ns thc palla- dium of liberty. While all constitutional means s...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, SEPT. Ifi. REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE. Tue usual abstract of thc revenue and ex- penditure of the colony lins been publish- ed. It exhibits a falling off in the ordinary Tevcnue for the second quarter of 1844, amounting to thc differencebetween £21,G42 ls. 5d., and £21,158 13s. 9d. In thc ex- traordinary revenue there is likewise a fall, amounting to thc difference between£12,2G 1 ls. ld., and £8,441 9s. lOd.

FARMER'S COLUMN. GOSHEN BUTTER MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
F A.TIMER'S COLUMN. GOSHEN BUTTER MAKING. The November number of the American Agriculturist contains n very interesting; ar- ticle on this subject. The editor is describ- ing one of tho dairies of General Wickham, situated two miles from Goshen, Orange County, New York, a place famed for good butter. General Wickham hos 40 cows, which are regularly salted and kept in good pasture during summer; in winter each cow is kept in a stall, with a separate door to it, in a building two sides of a square, round a large yard. The cows are brought up to the yard night and morning, and regularly milked. Opposite the farm house is placed a tunnel into which the milk is poured as fast as a pailful is obtained from tho cows. A short perpendicular tin pipe connects the tunnel with a horizontal one, which is buried two feet under ground, out of the wny of the frost, and leads into the cellar of the house. When the milking operation is going on, a woman stands in the cellar with empty pans placed und...

MEDICAL TESTIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
MEDICAL TESTIMONY. ON Saturday, an action was tried in the Court of Queen's Bench, before Lord Den man and a special jury, under the following; circumstances :-The defendant, a gentleman of the name of Lowe, aged G4, but vigorous and healthy, was some two years back seized with a pain in his toe. Gout ? Even worse -spontaneous gangrene. He applied to a Mr. Baker, a surgeon at Hampton, and the plaintiff in the action, who administered stimulating medicines, with brandy, meat, and wine. Pleasant, perhaps, but wrong. At least in a few days the patient got rid of his toe, but not of his disorder. The latter spread over the foot, and Mr. Liston, the surgeon, who was called in, cut off that also, after having in vain tried to save it by the adoption of the " soothing system" the very reverse of Mr. Baker's, and con- sisting in the abandonment of " stimuli," in the administering of sedatives, and in tem- perance and quiescence. After that the plaintiff continued his attendance upon the def...
