PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF LORDS. FEB. 18. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE, HOUSE OF LORDS. FEB. 18. Lord Kinnaird complained that nothing had been yet done in the way of enquiry into existing distress ; nineteen thousand persons in Paisley were supported by chari- table contributions. FEB. 21. Lord Aberdeen produced a treaty between the different powers of Europe for the sup- pression of the slave trade. France he hoped would soon lend her moral sanction for the extinction of that abominable traffic. FEB. 25. A petition from the ministers of the presbyterian church in Ireland was pre- sented, praying that the marriages which had already taken place might be declared valid. FEB. 28. Lord Brougham laid on the table of the house his Local Courts' Bill, which was so nearly passing into a law nine years ago. The Lord Chancellor said that in a few days he would produce a similar measure. MAR. 1. Lord Campbell introduced three mea- sures for improving the administration of justice, an improvement in the constitution of the house as a c...

HOUSE OF COMMONS. FEB. 14, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

HOUSE OF COMMONS. FEB. 14, 1842. The house resolved itself into a committee to consider the corn-laws. Lord John Rus- sell moved that the house is not prepared to adopt the measure of ministers — the sliding scale. The debate was resumed on 15, 16, 18, 21, 22, 23, and 24th, when the house divided. — For Mr. Villier's motion, for the repeal of all duties 90 ; against it, 393 ; majority, 303. MOTIONS ON THE CORN-LAWS. — On Fri- day night there were five notices of motion on the notice paper of the House of Com- mons to be brought forward in the commit- tee on the importation of corn. The first is Mr. Villiers' resolution for the repeal of all duties, to be proposed in lieu of Sir R. Peel's resolutions. The next is Colonel Sibthorp's motion for levying all duties at the period of importation. The third is Mr. Christopher's scale of duties, com- mencing at 55s. when wheat is 50s. and under, and descending gradually to one shilling, when the price is 73s. The fourth is Mr. W. O'Brien's p...

THE NEW LOCAL COURT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

THE NEW LOCAL COURT BILL. (Abridged from the Law Magazine.)     All the plans for establishing low local tribunals during the last fourteen or fifteen years havd signally failed. If the govern- ment had a measure of reform prepared with any care, why not submit it to parlia- ment under the sanction of the law officers of the crown, and not intrust to Mr. Fox Maule a measure proposing an important alteration in the administration of justice — the common law and the partial abolition of trial by jury. Lord Brougham who was a host in himself, who was the very personifi- cation of reform, who had risen to fame as a barrister, and was then Lord Chancellor, whose measure was well matured and the result of long practice and experience and was supported by men of high reputation, failed ridiculously in his attempt to impose it on the country. The common law com- missioners recommend short forms of plead- ing ; Mr. Fox Maule sidpenses with all forms of pleading. The...

PUSEYISM. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

PUSEYISM. " In conclusion, I once more publicly profess myself a catholic, and a member of a catholic church, and say anathema to the principle of pro- testantism, which I regard as the principle of dis- sent, and to all its forms, sects, or denominations, especially to those of the Lutherans and Cal- vinists, and British and North American dis- senters ; likewise to all persons who knowingly and willingly, and understanding what they do, shall assert, either for themselves or the Church of England, the principle of protestantism, to all such, I say anathema." WERE this the language of a Roman priest it might be heard with tolerance : we should have a right to construe with generosity that official cursing which education may induce a man to sanction or perform, while the mildness of his temper, and the benevo- lence of his life, soften the complexion of his creed. But this is the language of a priest enjoying the benefit of protestant profession ; and, having no excuse of edu- cati...

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 9, 1842. LAND REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

LAUNCESTON EXAMINER, Saturday, July 9, 1842. LAND REGULATIONS. THE movement of Sir George Gipps in favour of emigration has drawn the atten- tion of the home authorities, and induced ia review of the whole system, or rather series of systems, on which land has been given or sold ; and if once the eyes of the imperial minister and parliament can be steadily directed to colonial affairs, and if once the attention of England is engaged by the concerns of these colonies, we may expect a full share of the enterprise, capital, and liberal institutions of our countrymen ; who, though difficult to rouse, and always tardy in comprehending their duty, are ever just. It appears that Lord Stanley introduced his bill for the regulation of land sales very early in the session. His measure has a more important aspect in the other colo- nies. It will, however, fix one pound as a mininum price in this, and consequently preserve the present settlers from all in- trusion on their back runs and render ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON EXAMINER. SIR. — Allow me to inform " Teetotaller" that the most intoxicating liquor that can be found, is the simple production of nature : viz. — the sap that exudes fron the cocoa nut tree and some species of the palm. When drunk before the sun   has risen, it is most delicious and cool ; but as soon as heated by the sun's rays, it ferments and becomes a stimulant of the most active principle, and is used by the natives of India ; and com- pletely refutes his idea that nothing produced by nature contains the property of alcohol or fer- nmented liquor in its simple state. ANTI-HUMBUG.

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. IN another column will be found an account of the meeting held at the police-office to promote the formation of a botanic garden ; and whatever difficulty may attend the full accomplishment of its plans, we have no doubt of final success. It is gratifying to the pride of our towns-people to find their locality advancing to the possession of all those valuable institutions enjoyed in older countries. It is true our narrow sphere and limited means will still leave room for odious comparisons. Miserable and cyni- cal snarlers — who bestow not a farthing for the accomplishment of a public object, and who are the muffled drums and hurdigur- dies of the world ; who seem only created to set off the charms of harmony by con- trast ; the miserable beings who grin shen others smile, groan when others cheer ; who strut with the turkey, fret with the porcupine, and cackle with the goose — these will tell us that our Mechanics' Institution is much less celebrated than that...

COURT OF REQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 July 1842

COURT OF REQUESTS. IN a late Law Magazine there is an arti- cle on the Local Courts' Bill, introduced into parliament by Mr. Fox Maule. Were our business with the reviewer, we should tell him his legal prejudices and political predilections have warped his judgment ; and that his article is rather a captious cri- tique than a fair review of the measure. Propositions for legal reform seldom issue from the profession. Intricacies, which have only been mastered by much labour and expenditure of time, are supposed to be essential appendages of justice ; and a lawyer, from education and habit, will gene- rally look with distrust on a cheaper remedy and a simpler code. The practised eye of Brougham, however, discovered no evil in the Local Courts' Bill he brought into par- liament several years ago ; which was ap- proved of by the country, passed by the commons, and rejected by the lords : and, in answer to the objection that cheap and speedy justice would encourage litigation, he boldly ...
