The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 9, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 9 August 1839

THE COURIER FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 9,1339. "WE have scotched the snake, not killed it." The Act touching Distillation is, we understand, " to be." Its head must be seared by the Legis- lative Council at last, so as never to rise again. For this purpose we call upon every member to be in his place when it is brought for- ward. He will not be true to the trust re- posed in him by the colony who fails in at- tendance. A more outrageous attempt to in- vade the laws and liberties of the people was never perpetrated; but if the unofficial members of the Legislative Council are only true to themselves, it must meet with a most signal defeat. How has this measure passed the Executive Council with the Chief Justice in it, who may hereafter sit in judgment upon its provisions ? His Honor sits in the Council to be sure by a mistake, but let him not make it more manifest by submitting to have such Bills as these pulled through with the Colonial Secretary in the waggon. While we write, we are re...

A a Sir Francis proceeds in his narrative, the reader is quite as much astonished as the honour- able baronet could have been on seeing1 himself " written down"-on the walls as devoted to ultra liberal principles ; for his despatches are filled with unnecessary effusions of loyalty, which might have better accorded with the temper and the times of George the Third, of pious memory, than the administrative functions of an officer, whose first duty was to conciliate and unite the jarring elements of discord which had crept iu to the dismemberment of society, and not to de- vote himself exclusively to any particular per- suasion of politics or party. We are conscious that extreme circumstances call for extreme measures; but admitting the necessity of the .case, and that as Sir Francis himself says, by way of comment, in answer to one of the des- patches sent from...
