Robberies. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 5 August 1825

UoWeviec. A"* McCabe and Brady. - On Friday last, about 1 o'clock in the day, these men stop- ped Mr. C. Thomson and Mr. J. Presnell, of this town, within a mile of Mr. Whitfield's, at the Cross Marsh. - They took them into the bush, a short distance from the road and robbed them of their money and such articles of their wearing apparel as they wanted. McCabe changed hats with Mr. Thompson: they appeared in high spirits,   talked of their farm in the Mountains, and that they should decorate their hut with a small pair of pocket pistols, which they took from Mr. Thompson. They seemed to know every thing which was going on, and men- tioned Mr. Kemp's horse, which they said they would shoot, as they would him, if they fell in with him. They gave a very different account of the affair at Diummond's to that which was before related. Mr. Graham, the Government gardener, was robbed by them the same day. After detaining Messrs. T. and P. for about two hours, they allowed them t...

    (From the Sunday Monitor, April 4, 1824.) YORK SPRING ASSIZES. THE KING v. BRISCOE. ASSAULT.   The Prosecutor was the Clerk of the Parish at Leeds; the Defendant a cabinet-maker. The Prosecutor having circulated a report, that the daughter ot Defendant was pregnant, Defendant accosted him on the subject,   on a Sunday, as the parishioners was going into Church: a dispute arose, and the Defendant   struck Plaintilf the blows which produced   this Indictment. The assault was   proved, as also that Plaintiff's face was so cut, he was prevented from doing his church   duty, and the clergyman was obliged to go through the service without a clerk. Mr. Justice Holroyd charged the Jury, that the assault being proved, they must find the Defendant Guilty. But the Prosecutor's conduct was abominable, he was circulating slander with the response in his mouth against it. - Fined 1s. Major ...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 5 August 1825

Weteart ftotom* PRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1825. In the article inserted in the last Govern- ment Gazette, which we have elsewhere noticed, there is an explanation of the circumstances, under which the Letter of Captain Montagu to Mr. Hobson, and the Circular to the Ma- gistrates, were written. We have no doubt that His Honor the Lieutenant Governor was actuated by kind motives in the affair with Mr. Hobson. That Gentleman, however, appeals to have had a diffeient understanding on the subject, to that mentioned by the writer in the Government Gazette. It appears, that Mr.Hobson received a promise of 300 acres   of land, on exhibiting a satisfactory state-   ment of his means to improve the same. That he repeated a statement of what he had before submitted, and upon which it was the Lieutenant Governor's pleasure to order him to receive 300 acres, and yet, that for reasons unknown to Mr. Hobson, His Honor's behest, is now " curtailed of half its fair proportion ;" th...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

To the Editor. SiKj-In your last Paper you stated, that after the Grants of Land, now daily expect- ed here, had passed the 'Great Seal of the Colony, that, if they were lost on the pas- sage down, or were destroyed by any other accident, that the Settlers' tibie would be equally valid. Iii this statement you are no doubt perfectly right. But I will go fartlu'r and inform you, that if the Governor in Chief himself, was to obtain them back again fro\h the Surveyor-General of Lands, after the Seal was once aflixf d to them, and the Deed perfected in due form of Law; that if Lis excellency was to destroy them all, the ti- tle of the Grantee would not be in the least degree invalidated thereby. A Grant once duly executed, can never be cancelled, but by operation of Law, or re-conveyance of the Grantee. The Attorney-General, and the SolicitoMïerrcral, will, if called upon, I am certain, fully bear me out in this statement. There is no occasion therefore for the assu- rances you speak of ...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

Kea csettMHiwgîvoggWMiaJhaMai ÏIÎXDAY, AUGUST 12, 1825. The Conductors of the Government Ga- zette have, in their Paper of the 30th July, openly avowed that certain Letters intended for us, have been rrceived by them, owing to their assuming our Title. They have the -unblushing -effrontery to state this to the Public. In England, if Letters so circunfc stanced were withheld from the right ow- ners,, whether public or private, the so doing would constitute'an offence, which in the view, which the Military Jury take of the Law of Libel, it might not be quite convenient to designate. This circumstance, which we have reason to believe is not of singular oc- currence, and other contemptible advanta- ges which have been taken, as regard our , Subscribers, and our advertising friends, arising from the same cause ; and above all the apprehension which we feel, tl<at our Gazette may "by possibility be confounded with the slandeious and miserable produc- tion*; piratical ly bearing...

(FROM THE TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

(WOMTBE TIMES.). We gave in our Paper of yesterday a r* port' ot an application made to the Loan (Wancellor, which produced in that hi"h judicial character a considerable deirrce nf that good-natured effervescence which not untrequently shows itself on the even cur rent'of his temper. As his Lordship said h¡ should be very happy to be corrected, and as we have not the least doufcjt in our own minds that he was grossly in the wrong ire shall take the liberty of showing why wa think so. J v The application arose out of the everlasting Queensberry cause, in which it appears an order has been made to sell nearly half a million of Government Stock. Every body except (and his own declaration compels us to make the exception) the Lord Chancel- lor, knows that so large an amount of stock as half a million offered for sale in one mass is sold on terms less advantageous for th« seller than smaller portions ; and an applica- tion was made to the Lord Chancellor by Mr. Truslove, with the consen...

(From the European Magazine, March 1824.) [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

(From the European Magazine ¡March 1824.J Alasco ; a Tragedy, by M. A. Shee, Esq. It. A.-Excluded from the Stage by the Lord "Chamberlain, His Grace the Duke of Montrose.-This Tragedy is here reviewed at great length and with infinite ability. After speaking of the passages, on account of which the Lord Chamberlain, and the Licenser of Plays (Mr. George Colman) had refused permission for the Piece to be performed, the subject ia continued as follows : " Admitting, then, Mr. Shee's former works were equal in merit to any other poet of the stage ; admitting they were even superior, it is evident, from the reasons which we have just assigned, that they could not be so po- pular, or so much the theme of general con- versation ; and consequently, that their me- rits could not be duly appreciated ; but how much is it to be regretted that when he came forward on the same ground with these highly gifted poets, that when he made the original Kassions of human nature, and the situations y whi...

To the ED[?]TOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

To the Eqmlor. Sir,-There is a feeliflgj^wjiplanted in the mind of man, which when Well directed leads him to take a lively interest in the affairs of - that part of the world, and the members con- nected with it, wheie Providence has cast his lot ; and the chief means of deriving a view of, and receiving*information on the state of it, is through the medium of a well regulated, liberal, independent Public Com- municator of passing events. It was from these feelings 1 subscribed to your Gazette, and to the receiving of which I look anxious- ly forwaid, but owing to there not being any regular communication nearer at least than sixteen miles*, I am obliged to wait for some accidental communication with Hobart Town, . before 1 can obtain the gratification of its perusal, (and many of my neighbours from this delay and uncertainty, would but for it be Subscribers), by which time it brings old news. But, Mr. Editor, I cannot express my asto- nishment and anxiety at perusing the account o...

Police Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

Police Intelligence Apprehension of a whole Gang of Robbers, by Mr. Humphrey in person. - We have the satisfaction to announce, that a gang of six of these desperate marauders was apprehended on Saturday night, at the house of a ticket of leave man, named John Ray, near the Penitentiary. The greatest praise is due to A. W. H. Humphrey, Esq., the Superintendent of Po- lice, for the able manner in which this desi- rable event has been effected, entirely owing to the excellent arrangements made by him for that purpose. These men will be so soon put upon their trial, that we are unwilling to enter into details which may even tend to prejudice them. 'We shall limit ourselves,   therefore, to the particulars of their appre- hension, the management of which, and of obtaining possession of almost the whole of the property which has been stolen from the neighbourhood of New Norfolk, was con- ducted in the most skilful and adroit man- ner by Mr. Humphrey. He had been in pos- sess...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 12 August 1825

To the Editor. SIR,-Your report of the last Trials, the King against Bent, has created much sur- prise. You have mentioned several cases as to which the word " Job" -has been applied ; but you have not mentioned one that will be in the recollection of many of your Readers. I allude to Mr. Canning's former appoint- ment as Ambassador to Lisbon. This was called " a most profligate job" in every one of the London Papers; and the expression was never found fault with by the most zea- lous admirers and supporters of the then Mi- nistry. Now the object of my troubling you at present, is to remind the Gentlemen who sat upon your Jury of this, and to ask of some of the writers in the New Gazette, whe- ther, if it was not a Libel to apply this word to the appointment of such an elevated cha- racter as Mr. Canning, how is it that it be- comes one if applied to the appointment of the Deputy to the Chief Officer of the Cus- toms, for such only is the person so oddly called " the Naval Officer."...

Boot, was sentented to pay a fine of .£10.   John James Maring was indicted for the embezzlement and larceny of a watch, a   pound of tobacco, and a watch key, the pro- perty of the prosecutor, Richard Holmes. Richard Holmes stated the circumstances of the embezzlement of the articles in question ; that the prisoner was in his service ; that he allowed him sometimes to work for himself for his own support ; that he was occasionally sup- plied with provisions by witness ; that he was one of the men len by Government to the Rev. Mr. Bedford, for the improvement of the Glebe land at Clarence Plains ; that Mr. Bedford, knowing the witness was in want of   a man, was so good as to lend him to wit- ness, until he could get him regularly,trans- ferred to him ; that he believes he was so transferred, but he has no certificate of it; that Mr. Bedford promised to see it done.
