MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 9 August 1839
MISCELLANEOUS. The Irish Pompeii.-It is bounded on the north by Thomas-street, to the south by Harold's Cross and the ¿loyal Canal, to the east by St. Patrick's Cathedral, and to tho west by the new market and the Circular Road ; and contains, upon a moderate compulation, the ruins of not less than 10,000 houses, and a pauper population of probably 60,000 souls. It is termed, with great propriety, the Liberty;! presume, from the free and easy style of the tene- ments and their inhabitants. The most unbounded hospitality would prevail, if there happened to be anything to give ; for everybody keeps open house all the year round, the doors having long since been removed, and the windows having in like manner disappeared in search of another situation. Street after street of these tenements present themselves to the eye of the curious stranger, nuked of window as of door, and, save that they are densely inhabited, and still retain staircases and floors, more like a city sacked by fire t...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 15, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 16 August 1839
Cïje Courier* THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 15,1839. ANOTHER scene ha» taken place in toe Su- preme Court which bids fair to become a rival of that over which Lord Norbury, of facetious -memory, presided with to much distinction in Ireland. It arose out of the circumstance of the Judges detaining the Court for three quarters ,of an hour, while their Honors were deliberating ,in a private room. No communication having been made to the Bar from the Judges as to how long their Honors intended to sit in conclave, and no measures having been taken by the Bar to ascertain the fact, the Attorney-General took up his papers and walked. So also the Solicitor General, the Crown Solicitor, and the other gentlemen of the Bar who were present in Court. Their Honors found the Court empty : solemn silence reigned amongst the empty benches: their Honors asked where were the lawyers? and " echo answered-where ?" But upon the next day of the meeting of the Court up they sprung as lively and as numerous as ...

' TO CORRESPONDENTS. , | We have received South Australian papers'to the 1st of August,from which we regret, owing to press of other mutter, not being enableii to extract a Mt cr of Mr. Step ' hen's, addressed " to the Public of South Australia." . Ii would, we think, hate been more wise in Mr. Stephen , to have abided the iisue of the pending action, which ' he has In ought against the Register ; but he stands in a singular position-the whole Preis being combined against him, and the paper alluded lo ingeniously and industriously endeavouring to pre-occupy the public mind to hisprejudice.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 16 August 1839
T0 THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR, In noticing that part of the article contained in &nbsp; your paper of the 9th instant, which relates to the dis- cipline pursued at the Queen's Male Orphan Schools, &nbsp; I beg to point out some inaccuracies in your statement. As these inaccuracies must have a tendency to in- flict upon me an unmerited injury, I feel confident you will give insertion in your journal, to the follow- ing facts : - I have, as Second Master, been in charge of this Establishment since November, 1837. In October, 1838, I conceived it my duty to forward a memorial through the Head Master to the Government, sug- gesting such measures as might have a tendency to promote the comfort and welfare of the children. In April last, I forwarded a letter to the Colonial Secretary through the Head Master, praying for an inquiry into the constitution and state of the Establish- ment; also, "respecting the duties, powers, and re- &nbsp; sponsibilities, of th...
SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Tuesday, Aug. 13. Adey v. Sutton. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 16 August 1839
SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Tuesday, Aug. 13. Adey v Sutton. &nbsp; In this case an action was brought by the plaintiff against the defendant to recover the amount of a bill of exchange for £22, accepted by the defendant. The action was brought in the Court of Requests under that act which gave to the court jurisdiction in all such causesof action &nbsp; where the amount did not exceed £30. The plaintiff in &nbsp; that action recovered a judgment, and sued out execution, the return to the writ being nulla bona. Thus the pro- ceedings stood, when the Lieutenant-Governor's procla- mation, announcing that the act had been disallowed at home, was issued in this colony. The plaintiff then com- menced an action against the defendant on the same bill of exchange in the Supreme Court. The defendant pleaded a judgment recovered in the Court of Requests, as already stated. The plaintiff then applied to the court for liberty to treat this as an unsubstantial plea....

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 16, 1[?]39. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 16 August 1839
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. AUGUST 16,1839. The Legislative Council is again postponed, as we leam, to the 31st of this month. We have read in a book of some repute on the art of war, that it is best to furnish soldiers with few rounds of ball cartridge, speaking comparatively with the load which they now carry, for other- wise, with a foolish hankering after life, they will keep up a useless firing, when they should rely for victory upon the bayonet. We know very well that Colonel Mitchell's military tactics are altogether of a.different sort; but it is quite evident that our colonial administrators, with a foolish hankering after life and place, prefer skir- mishing and firing long shots, to the coming to a close engagement. . But in the memorable lan- guage of the 87th, when making a charge, it must be " clear the way." If the battle is to be fought on the JJ 1st, we shall expect each soldier of the people at his post, faithful to the trust reposed in him by the colony, and arme...
