To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 December 1824

To the Editor of the Australian, Sir, The ample, unqualified, and convincing exposition you have given to the M'Fustian bubble alias the grand "Australian     Agricultural Company," demands from the Colony their most unqualified thanks and gratitude. Is it to be borne that one of Britain's best boons to this Colony is to be offered up to the shal- low, the specious, and deceptory projects of interest of any of the hoary projectors of Australia? God forbid !     There is, Sir, a great merit in detecting an imposition ; but there is a still greater one in defeating, or even attempting the defeat of it. In the warmth of my abhorrence and disgust of the supera- bundant display of the effrontery and scapinage of Australia's Moloch, I now unhesitatingly suggest an immediate application to the Sheriff, to call a meeting of all the landed proprietors   of the Colony, whether minor or major, and of those in expectancy of grants...

POLICE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 December 1824

POLICE OFFICE. WEDNESDAY, Dec. 8. — Elizabeth Thompson, alias Mitchell, alias Freeman, was brought up charged with riotous and disorderly conduct on the night of Tues- day last. The cause assigned by the aforesaid lady for her disorderly proceedings, was a desire to be re- venged upon her undutiful daughter, which daughter it appeared had been the usurper of certain of her do- mestic priveleges, inasmuch as Mrs. Mitchell had been for a series of years under the "protection" of a Mr. Freeman previous to the arrival of "Miss" in the Colony. The charms of the daughter outshone as it should seem, those of the mother; and Mr. Freeman   discarded mama for the more youthful attractions of Miss Thompson, who now enjoys those rites of which mama had of older time been the enjoyer. Such in-   juries could not pass unrevenged. The dame was in the habit of repairing to the domicile of her ci devant son-in-law, and there raising a disturbance to the great annoyance of t...

SUPREME COURT—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 December 1824

SUPREME .COURT— (Continued. ) TUESDAY.—LAWLISS v. KNOFFE. — The plaintiff in this case sought to recover the value of a dog, killed by the defendant, a servant to a butcher named Kelly, in Pitt-street. This butcher, it appeared, rented certain premises of the plaintiff, and had the liberty of driving his cattle through the plaintiffs yard to his slaughter-house. In this yard the plaintiff's dog was kept. Witnesses stated that the dog was a very faithful and serviceable animal, and worth at least ten pounds. The defendant had on the 30th of October gone into the plaintiff's yard, without leave of plaintiff; the dog attacked him, and he thereupon plunged a   butcher's' knife into the dog's chest, which occasioned his imme- diate death. The Chief Justice observed, that the plea of having killed the dog in his own defence, was not a sufficient one, in as much as the defendant was a trespasser, and the plaintiff placed the dog in the yard as a protection against such persons...

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 December 1824

Hobart Town. Sixty-four aborigines came into Hobart Town re- cently, of their own accord, and in a pacific manner well calculated to conciliate even those who had been most prejudiced against them. The Assistant Com- missary General furnished them with provision and slops ; and the Police received directions to protect them from insult. The market-house was appropriated   to their accommodation, and after being plenteously regaled with bread, they had three large fires kindled,   and four constables to guard them.         Another Attack by the Natives.—On the morn-     ing of the 21st Oct. about twenty aboriginal blacks     approached the house and stock-yard of Mr. James Hobbs, situate about 15 miles east of York Plains, at which place it will be recollected a large tribe of na- tives made their appearance some few weeks ago, and that, after some resista...

SUPREME-COURT [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 16 December 1824

SUPREME COURT. MONDAY.— The Chief Justice in opening the Court observed, that before they proceeded to business he would make one or two remarks, with regard to the practice necessary to be adopted. He had hoped instructions would have reached the colony from England — this had not been the case, though certainly some com- munication had been made to him partly official; but nothing   was contained in them definitive, so that it would be necessary to establish local forms which would be submitted for the appro- bation of his Majesty.—The English practice would be adopted, as far as applicable; the only alteration would be in the process.   The Supreme Court, the Chief Justice observed, had jurisdiction over matters that could possibly come before it; and that on the equity, as well as the plea side of the Court, the practice should be assimilated to that of England, after the end of the present Term.       &nbs...

POLICE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 23 December 1824

POLICE OFFICE. William Coffrey, apparently sixty years of age,     prisoner belonging to Hyde Park barracks, was brought up on a charge of passing counterfeit coin, purporting to be rupees and Russian monies, value 2s. 6d. each, at a shop in Hunter-street, in payment for goods pur- chased there. The shopkeeper suspecting that they were counterfeits, requested the prisoner to go with him to a neighbouring shop, where similar coins had been offered; this he acceded to apparently without reluctance; but on the way thither, he decamped—     this was on Tuesday. Information was given to the constables, and a description of his person; and on   Thursday he was apprehended. On the way to the office an ineffectual attempt was made to rescue him. Not being able to give a satisfactory account as to how he became possessed of the coin, he was directed to   be sent to hard labour on the roads, for two years. &...

SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 23 December 1824

SUPREME COURT. THURSDAY. — In the case of William King, confined in the gaol, by virtue of a warrant signed by Mr.   Macleod, as a runaway from H. M. ship Tamar, the Chief Justice observed, that in consequence of an application made to the court, for the discharge of the prisoner King, he had given the subject some con-   sideration, but could not come to any decision until a copy of the proceedings before the Magistrates should be laid before the Court. — (Here the Attorney General intimated that he had just received a return of the certiorari). It had been pretty broadly asserted, that magistrates had not authority enabling them to commit to prison mariners belonging to his Majesty's service.—Though he did not feel disposed at present to enter into the merits of the case, yet he would slightly glance at what he apprehended to be the law of it; and in so doing he could find a variety of statutes   which certainly have analogy to the case befor...
