Spring Guns Bill, and Game Law property Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 13 August 1827

Spring Guns' Bill, and Game Latw property Bill. IT gives us great satisfaction to observe, that the Spring Guns' Bill has passed the House of Lords. There is, perhaps, a little too much laxity in the lan guage of this Bill, and the limitations and provisions are soinewhat too extensive and embarrassed ; but the principle of the law is excellent, and it holds out the promise of a more humane spirit of legislation as re gards the Game Code,-laws which, if" not like those of Codrus written in blood, are engraven at least upon tablets of stone and iron, and menace imprisonment, chains, and batishment, in every page. Clavos tra bales, et cuneos manu, gestans ahena. But the Spring Guns' Bill is a decided triumph of humanity. AN eye for and eye, and a tooth for a tooth, was the severe law of retaliation of the Jews, but these laws bore reference to creatures like ourselves. It remained for the ingenious devisers of spring guns and man traps to exact the more horrible and unequal penalty of...

THE MANLIUS brings no accession of News, having sailed on the same day as the Marquis of Hastings; with this advantage however, that leaving the Downs on the 17th. of April, her proximity to London was considerably nearer than Portsmouth, whence the latter Ship sailed. We regret to say that Mr. Cruikshanks, the Chief Officer of the Manlius, a young man much respected by the Commander and Ship's Company, met a premature death by accidental drawning on the 15th. of May last.

Barrister at Law, son of Mr. WVilliams, a Professional Gentleman, of high reputation in London, and J. Noble, Esq. a nephew of D'Arcy Wentworth, Esq. of Sydney.

It appears, that a detachment of the 55th Regiment, embarked on the Harvey for the Cape, commanded by Captain Elrington (son of Major Elrington, of Sydney, under whose orders were Iieutenants Bonnis, Wilson, and Peck. Some disagreeable misunderstandings which occurred before the ship left the EngliSh Channel, un happily increased so much.during the voyage, that the military men and the civilians were upon the most un pleasant terms. On their arrival at the Cape, in conse quence of certain strong expressions which Mr. Williams had found himself called upon to apply to some of the military, he...

LONDON NEWSPAPER CHAT. BY a private' letter from Lyons, we are informed, that in that city and neighbourhobbd, more than 500 persons have embraced the Protestant faith, from a sincere con viction of its truth.

TIMES, APRIL, 1827.--The French papers of Tuesday,   with the Etoile dated Wednesday, which arrived last night, contain the following paragraphs :— (From the Etoile, dated Wednesday, April 11.) " CONSTANTINOPLE, MARCH 10. "THE negociations commenced by the Russian, French, and English Ambassadors, in favour of the Greeks, still continue, and are every day accompanied with more serious menaces : yet people are generally pursuaded that the Porte, which looks upon these pro- posals as a violation of its rights of sovereignty, will reject them all. The Reis Effendi has already declared verbally, that they were inadmissible, because they were in opposition to the rights of the Sultan and to common sense. Some persons think, that in case of a refusal being given by the Divan in writing, the Ambassadors of Russia and England will take some extreme steps. The Porte, however, appears to believe that they will not go beyond threats. This at least is indicated by its conduct, for ...

We give:in another column the speech of. the Infanta Regent of Portugal, on closing the sitting of the Cortes. It 'is a document of no great interest, but serves to shew the.temper in which affairs are proceed. ing, being of that mild, temporizing nature that seems more intent upon avoiding thanconquering difficulties. According to the tenor of many of the letters from lP6r tugal, this is, the best. plan that can be adopted in the. present divided state' of that country, where an active party is averse to all melioration, and the bulk: of the population, from mere habit and ignorance, at.least. indifferent on 'the subjeet. How far this opinion may be correct in the present instance, we affect' not to, determine; but its reduction to practice gi.ves an air of imbecility and insignificance to Portuguese proceedings, both executive and legislative, which is; of any, tWng but a promising description.
