Supreme Court. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 11 June 1830

Supreme Court. (From the Launceston Advertiser.)               JUNE 3-Edward Sweeney was tried for the murder of his wife, in December last, and his trial occupied the Court   the whole day. A great number ol witnesses were examined, who all tended to confirm the fact, that he had beat and ill used the woman from 2 o'clock in the afternoon until late at night, sometimes with a piece of paling, at other times with a chair, and by jumping on the body of the unfortunate woman. It also appeared by the evidence, that after her death, the prisoner had washed the body himself, took off her dirty clothes and put clean clothes on her, then put her in a clean bed, and carefully drew a lock of hair over a deep wound on her temple. It was also proved that her body and thighs were a complete mass of bruises. Sweeney, during his trial, when a verdict was given against him, and also under the fe...

The privilege pf attending him on those oej-' casions was strongly coveted ; and there was' no1 a goudoiier 'iii''Venice, nor a sailor oil the Adriatic,' but legarded his loid ship'as his countryman, and would cheerfully have "exposed himself to any danger for his sake. He was particularly fond ¿f the island of Sabioncello, situated near ltagusá, and often repaired thither in a four-oat ed boat, accompanied by the Coun- tess Guiccioli,and two or tlnee other friends. He always 'carried with him the requisite materials for writing.- and the Countess, who drew tolerable well fiom nature, took her. port- folio with her.

The New Moon Association. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 18 June 1830

Tlie New Moon Association. This'iiii'ght at first sight appear to be a fancy sketch, but we apprehend it is taken bom leal life. The scene is laid in a room in the Albion. The principal figure is a man tall and raw-boned, with a lace us long as thal of a horse,» sunk grey eyes, like the twinkling optics of a feriet, and a cadaverous aspect. He has ii large pair of compasses in the one hand, mid a map of the moon iii the other.' He is evidently en- gaged in measuring oil* portions of the lunar planet, for the settlements' of groups of adventurers, who are slowly ex- tracting long-hoarded money from old leathern purses and cow's horns, to pay for their passage to the new colonies in the moon. An a-rouant stands ready with an enormous bal- loon to take" them oil their trial trip. The balloon has a rudder and othei ingenious machinery, to prevent it being the sport of currents of air. A mill and compact bakehouse, distillery, and kitchen, ure attached lo it, all lire-proof and capable o...

It consists entirely of heads or generals, giving no detail whatever ; but the total result of each branch of income or disbursement, is brought at once under the Reader's notice.   If, as is asserted by the political economists of England, the duties levied in the shape of taxation upon commodities in general use, afford a true index of the state of a country, then is much upon which the Colony may be congratu- lated in the statement now before us ; for we find, that of the total amount of Ordinary Reve-     nue, or the sum of Fi...
