Supreme Court. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 22 June 1827

Supreme Court.. On Saturday last, His Honor the Chief Jus- tice Pedder took his seat on the Bench to give judgment on the various prisoners then in Gaol, on whom sentence had not been passed-the present being a General Gaol Delivery, the long Session having at last ter- minated. Mr. R. L. Murray, whose case is already well known to the Public, was first brought into the Court by the Sheriff, Mr. Fereday, previous to any other prisoners being brought   out of prison. He was addressed by the Chief Justice at considerable length. His Honor observed, that various circumstances were connected with his, Mr. Murray's case, which had occasioned considerable doubts in His Honor's mind, as to whether it were a forgery-although he had no doubt of there being an intention to defraud. It was custo- mary, where doubts existed as to the legal guilt of the prisoner, that he should reap the beiieiit of that doubt; but in the present in- stance, under all the concurrent circumstan ces of...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 22 June 1827

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN : FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1827. "When we look back to the commencement of the sitting of the Supreme Court, that is now at an end - trace the dreadful state in which the Colony then was placed, and view the regular succession of crime which has, since occurred, keeping the Court sitting for nearly two years without coming to a Gene- ral Gaol Delivery - and compare the past with the present - we are struck at the im- provement which has been wrought. The Colony, which two years back was one con- tinued scene of alarm and tenor, is now tran- quil. Those horrid recitals which have at times stained our pages, of atrocities com- mitted by lawless banditries, are happily at an end ; and all the island is now in peace and safety. Those dreadful accounts, which have aforetime gone abroad, through the medium of the Press, of horrors scarcely to be named, must greatly have prejudiced the interest of our Colony, as they must have materially tended to check emigration to our...

Nine Runaway Prisoners. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 29 June 1827

^M^^A&^ltionew. wen, On Thursday night last, nine misguided men, with a view of escaping from the Co- lony, took a small boat from the harbour, with an intention of seizing the cutter Emma Kemp, which was then on the eve of sailing for Sydney, but in consequence of many of them being inmates of the Prisoners' Bar- racks, they were missed at evening muster; when their views, being suspected, alarm was given, and the Emma Kemp did not sail that evening. A guard of the 40th Regiment were placed immediately on board the cutter, un-     der the charge of an officer belonging to the Principal Superintendent's Department. Du- ing the early part of the night, the boat with the runaways approached the cutter, when the guard stationed on board the latter very imprudently challenged, and thereby alarm ed them. When the challenge was given,   the runaways replied, that it was a guard boat, but immediately made off, on some further questions being p...
