We can scarcely imagine which of the two Colonies (this or Van Diemen's Land) has the more reason to be thank- ful for this manifestation of her Majesty's gracious consideration for the well-being of her beloved subjects in this distant part of her empire, for if our neighbours get ' the scoundrels reeking hot from their crimes, we have the satisfaction of receiv- ing them when steeped to their chins in the ways of villainy.
