COURTS OF EQUITY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

COURTS OF EQUITY. THE court of Mr. Justice Montagu is highly amusing to a spectator, though we should conjecture not the most pleasing to the bar. The keen and satirical judge seems gratified in exposing the errors and in chastising the negligence he unsparingly imputes to all beneath him. Mr. Attorney General assumes the attitude of silent de- fiance, and the chief constable receives his half-yearly castigation with becoming meekness. The sound lessons, administered by his Honor to the latter functionary, would almost atone for the bitterness with which they were conveyed. Mr. Montagu spoke like an Englishman, as indeed he generally does, when he denounced the efforts of policemen to extract from pri- soners confessions of their guilt. It did not strike us as equally just that his Honor, who displayed so much pity for for one " poor devil," should resent the   natural joy of another, when the jury ac- quitted him. To us it appears something like tyranny to subject a pr...

GOODWIN V. KNIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 16 July 1842

GOODWIN v. KNIGHT. It is said colonists are tenacious of their minutest rights, and strongly addicted to litigation ; and truly our busy and bustling people have aflorded abundant instances that the assertion is not founded merely in fancy. Our main places of resort are the courts of law, and our magistrates and com- missioners occupy, in uninterrupted rota- tion, the shrine of our orisons. What with innumerable calls at the police-office — in- evitable in a penal colony — attendance as suitors at the '' little-go," or as plaintiff's or jurors at the sessions, or as creditors in that most popular court where the process of " white-washing" is performed with such dexterity that it leaves the Ethiopian as black as ever, or in other capacities which the politeness of a journalist will hardly permit him to name, a large portion of our time, reflections, and conversation is occu- pied in discussing the discrepancy between what is and what ought to be. The dulness of the ordinary routine ...
