<DffeKcr0"&£, The premises of *}ir. Bradbury, a respecta- ble settler in theMsicquariedishict, have been robbed lo a considerable amount. Mr. Bethune's assigned servant was ihe other day robbed by some bush-rangers, while going on a message for his master to Jones's river. Ile had several letters con- cealed about his person, which the offenders did not however discover. Mr. lhoraas Roadnight, of New Norfolk, was, a few days ago, stopped on the high road, on h is way home, and plunderedol'every thing he had 'about his person : his watch was however afterwards returned to him by the thieves, in consequence of its bearing his name, which circumstance they no doubt thought would lead to their detection.

TUESDAY, JULY 5. This day being fixed on by HIS HONOR   CHIEF JUSTICE PEDDER, for the ATTORNEY-   GENERAL to shew cause why the Rule, ob- tained by Mr. STEPHEN, should not be made absolute for a Writ of Mandamus, to the Magistrates of Sessions, that they do issue their Precept to the Sheriff, requiring him to summon a Jury, for the Trial of such of- fenders as may be brought before the Quar- ter Sessions, according to the late Act of Parliament, — The ATTORNEY-GENERAL took an objection to the terms in which the Rule was drawn up, on the ground that no dis- tinction was made between the Grand and Petty Juries ; in which objection we under- stood HIS HONOR the CHIEF JUSTICE to co- incide. — Mr. STEPHEN stated what was the custom in England.

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 July 1825

Hobart Town FRIDAY, JULY8, 1825. The Editor of a Newspaper, when he faith- full} djschaiges his duty, must by thevaiiety of his matter, occasionally call forth the promi- nent feelings and'prejudiced.impressions of ma- ny who compose the multitude of his Readers. The sceptic will smile at the tale of wondei - jthe credulous will ponder over the mysterious nairative.-the hold will rejoice inthe manliness .of teni less expiession-and the timid will anti- cipate with trembling, the probability, of evil consequenees. Still the Editor must proceed, and as a faithful repoi ter and commentator, march in the path of duty, finding his best re- wards in an approving conscience, and his chief support in the public confidence. We feel internally that we possess the former, and we shall do our utmost to preserve the latter. ** It is a fearful struggle in which we are now to contend, opposed to the whole weight of the influence "of a powerful Government. We tiave only the Public voice to which we...

Port Dalrymple News. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 July 1825

Port Dalrymple News.   Extracts from the Letter of our Launceston Correspondent, dated the 5th instant:       I was mis-informed respecting the death of Mrs. Macqueen. The Jury sat on her body three times, and returned a verdict- "Died by the visitation of God," and not wilful murder, as erroneously stated in last week's Gazette. A poor unfortunate woman, the wife of a   settler named Smith, was lately found dead in some straw, where she had laid all night, from intoxication, which, with the inclemency of the weather, caused her death. A bushranger named M'Manners, went into the house of the pilot, Mr. Joseph Cordell, at George Town, a few days ago, and, in the presence of his wife, shot him in the face. It   is not known whether the young man will live,   but you shall have further particulars next post. The cowardly wretch is, I am glad to add, in   safe custody. A cart was seized a few days ago by a Con...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 15 July 1825

-l/c/l/ To the EDITOR. Sr«,-It is generally known by the mer- cantile part of the community, that the Co- lonial Regulations, which compelled peisons leaving the Colony, have been abolished at fort Jackson since October last, as may be seeu by the Sydney Gazette; and that the Commanders and'Officers of Vessels arriving at the -Derwent! have not consequently ad- vertised in the Hobart Town Gazette since that alteration was made known here. I am induced to make these remarks, in conse- quence of perceiving the officers of the Wil- liam Shand advertised in the second number of the new Government Paper last week, which appears to be the old system revived. That such advertisements should be inserted without the consent of the parties, and then charged'for. is quite ridiculous. If a person chuses to advertise when leaving the Colony, I can see no objection to it. But why should a practise be again put in use here, when it is not adopted at Sydney. Perhaps this is a new way of raising the...

Robberies. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 15 July 1825

ROBBERIES A most audacious burglary was committed on Sunday morning last, in the premises of Mr. Francis Barnes, the Hope Inn, near the Wharf. About 5 o'clock, Mr. Barnes was awoke by the barking of a little dog in the house. He got up and went down stairs, and in the passage he put his hand upon a man ; it was quite dark. Mr. Barnes seized him and held him fast. The ruffian knocked him down, but he kept his hold. While on the ground he received several severe blows on the head, as he supposed from another of the burglars. Mr. Dowson, his brother-in law, soon came to his assistance, and the man was secured. His name is Johnson ; he had on when taken a pair of Mr. Barnes's boots, which (although clean when the fami- ly retired to rest), were covered with mud. The robbers it appears had entered by taking out a pane of glass from one of- the back windows, and had plundered the lower apartments of every thing valuable that they could find. Mr. Barnes, although severely hurt, we are happ...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 15 July 1825

Hobart town. FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1825. In our last we cursorily alluded to the recent new Commission of the Peace for this island. We are in possession of some curious   circumstances relative to the arrangement of the names which it includes, and which, thro' the favour of a confidential channel at Sydney, have come to our knowledge, exclusively per- haps, except amongst the immediate advisers of the local Government. It was our intention to have animadverted upon them ; but a ru- mour which has reached us, induces us to pause for the present. This rumour is, that His Ho- nor the Lieutenant Governor has made out a new Batch of Magistrates, which either have been sent, or shortly will go to Head-quarters, for approval. The first arrival from Sydney will enable us to be more explicit thereupon. We have heard with considerable satisfaction, that several Gentlemen of great consideration amongst us, and the exclusion of whom from the Magistracy has been viewed, to say the leas...

To the PRINTER of the Hobart Town Gazette.

If they are men, they will stand forward in their own cause, and if they are what I believe they profess to be, they will glory in their ow acts. I have heard it stated, that they ...
