DISSENT FROM THE COURT OF REQUESTS' ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cornwall Chronicle — 30 July 1836

DISSENT FUOM THE COURT OF RE QUESTS1 ACT. I dimsnt from tliii Act, or, rather, from that por tion of it which extends the jurisdiction 'of Courts of llc^Uette from ten to thirty poundi, for the fiillow iug nniongkt other reasous— 1. Because that enactment is in direct Tiolatwn of the King's Prerogative, and of the l'roviaous of the Act of 1'arjiamcnt. The King, in the citrate of lit- authority, hat constituted the Supreme Court, to which is given civil jurisdiction in all uuc«. The Statute permits this Council to trench upontkut jurisdiction, by erecting Courts of Requests/ Hut these are, says the Act, to take cogninuce of suits, to tJic eitcot of tew roDMjn. When tliellriiub Parliament limited thus the provision, it evnlcutly intended that the Colonial Legislature should keep within the prescribed Inunds. If it did not, the mention ofsxpecific sum was useless aud unmeaning. 2. liecause the evils couipUuicd of, the cxiEtcma of wlucli led to petitions for this Act, miglit have been r...

It would Ik a (inviRcrous thing for a man to say one syllable against the strictly n'ligious Govern ment of Colonel George Arthur, and yet, causes do dirt sometimes, for giving the lie to tlic character.

THE POLICE MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cornwall Chronicle — 6 August 1836

THE POLICE MAGISTRATE. It is a painful task to be ever condemning the conduct of a public officer; but, however painful, it is our duty, and, from that duty, we cannot shrink. We pronounce Mr. Clark to be, in our opinion, which, we presume, is not singular, as unfit for a Police Magistrate for the town of Launceston, as we should be to wield the sceptre of power over the millions of beings who inhabit the globe. What, in the name of common decency, could Governor Arthur be thinking about, when he appointed the young man to the responsible position? Did he possess, at the moment his fiat went forth which armed- a youth— an inexperienced youth— with power so responsible, one idea of the consequences ? Did he reflect, we ask, upon the probable result of so injudicious an appointment? Did he dream that the consequences, arising from the amiable inexperience of the Police Magistrate, would occasion, in the multitude, a total disregard to the laws -- a dangerous excitement and disrespect ...
