[Omitted from our last.] SUPREME COURT. TUESDAY, NOV. 13. Present—His Honor the Chief Justice, and Mr. Justice Montagu. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

[Ormücd from our Inst.] SUPREME COURT. TUESDAY, NOV. 13. Present-Iii* Ilmmr the Chief Justice, and Mr. Justice Montagu. Jnmes IIoirariT, in whose case Mr. Mac- dowell moved for an llahras Corpus on Tuesday last, was brought before the Court, and Mr. Madowell applied for his discharge on the ground that he had been wrongfully committed by Mr. Whitefoord, the Police Magistrate at Oatlands, inasmuch as the charge had not been made out, and the war- rant on which he was committed was in- formal. The Crown-Solicitor, on the part of Mr. Whitefoord, contended that the Court had no jurisdiction in the case, as the Magis- trate had proceeded under the Act 9th Geo. IV., by which the jurisdiction was specially confined to the Magistrate. Mr. Macdowell snpported the application. -Ile liad made tho application under the provisions of the Police Act, which gave the defendant right of appeal. The informality of tho warrant would alone justify his dis- charge. Tile Court decided that the warrant wa...

CORRESPONDENCE. Thc Editor of this Journal does- not hold himself re spnnsible for the opinions of his Correspondents. To the Editor of the Observer. SIR,-Tho Courier has been pleased to confound my observations on his vie*s or .* conviction" that the position of BUhop Nixon in this colony is identical with that of tho Archbishop of Canterbury in England with the sentiments expressed in an article in the Colonial Times on a subject totally distinct from that to which my remarks ap- plied. This I would not have noticed, had not u correspondent of the last named jour- nal adopted my signature Z. 2, and under it given utterance to views similar to those em bodied in the article in that paper, with which my letter was confounded by tilt! Courier. The article referred lo questions the literary stains of Bishop Nixon, and in this evinces the existence of feelings towards that dignitary of which I have no wish to be considered a partaker.

PETTY SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

PETTY SUSSIONS. THE conclusion of tho proceeding's before the Adjourned Court of IVlty Sessions, was inadvertently omitted in our last publication, which makes thc repoit look ridiculous. Tho following is the part omitted :-. Mr. Stonor said that he had already de- clared his opinion to bc, that it was not competent for the Bench to po into the ap- plication. It would be illegal : and, after having declared his opinion, he thought the learned gentleman should not press his ap- plication. Mr. Abbott said he thought it would be advisable to get the opinions of tho Law Officers of the Crown ; tho caso was ono of importance and thc decision might become a prcedent. Mr. Stonor said that ho had stated to tho Bench that his opinion was. that to go into the case would he illeiral. This was lu's ma- tured opinion, and he could not therefore entertuin the application. The applicants «ero not debarred from making application to a nc* meeting of tho Justices.

WHEN WILL THE CORN LAWS BE REPEALED? [From the Journal of Commerce, June 28.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

WHEN AVI LL THE COIÎN LAWS HE KEPEALED? [From tlic Journal of Commerce, June 28.] Ir ia impossible any longer to doubt tho fate of the Corn Laws; it is impossiblo not to see that they are doomed tn a very brief existence. The most sanguine protectionist mu*t now bo convinced that bis hopes of support from the Government had been illu- sory, and that it ts in vain for him to at- tempt to stem tho torrent that is pressing against him from every quarter. From tho moment thal Sir Robert Peel declared thal lt was the interest of the country to buy in cheapest and sell in the dearest markets, it was easv to foresee that tho united strength of tho .' Free Traders" would very soon com- pel the Minister to act on his own princi- ples. It was useless to expect, after buch an admission, that any subterfuge, any casu- istry, would avail to render such a sentence an unmeaning declaration, The Premier would not be permitted to swallow his own words, even if he were inclined to do so, and it would...

THE HOBART TOWN INFANT SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

TUE IIOHAUT TOWN1 INFANT SCHOOLS. Wo call the attention ol'our fellow-citizens to thc claims of those useful institutions, the Infant Schools of Hobart Town, thc managers of which are embarrassed with considerable liabilities. Whatever claims in a time of general depression may be neg- lected, thc interests of education should bc upheld. The ordinary inducements which attract the public to thc culture of thc in- fant mind, arc augmented with tenfold power, where the juvenile population arc connected with a social state in which mo- ral distinctions arc so liable to fade away. The new clements by which they arc sur- rounded nrc calculated to excite the worst [lassions of their nature, and unless our youth arc guarded from their infancy, they must be whirled into thc vortex of profound depravity, on the margin of which they are destined to exist. Our readers, generally, arc acquainted with thc origin and constitution of Infant Schools. Their era commenced in ISIS, when one was establi...

RECHABITE DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

RECHABITE DINNER. ON Friday the first anniversary of " Hope of Tasmania" Rechabite Tent was commemo- rated in the Temperance Hall, Bathurst-st. The Rechabites form a Society for thc relief of distressed members, their wives and child- ren, in connexion with the Total Abstinence Society. At six o'clock about seventy persons, composed of the brotherhood and friends, sat down to n capital dinner, which was well served. The tickets for admission to the dinner were charged three and sixpence, which appears rather high for a Teetotal dinner, all thing's considered. The Hall was adorned with the ensigns of the Order, and wai hung- with flags which but partially covered the walls, and looked too warm for the season. A sprinkling of evergreens. winch might have been easily procured, would have given a cooler and more refresh- ing a<pect to thc room. Mr. Jordan, the Chief Ruler, was in the chair, delivered tho toasts, which were responded to ns below. The Total Abstinence Liand occ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE QUERN'S UIVER YACHT.-The Fii'iry is a screw bout, free from paddle-boxes. She sits low and gracefully upon the water, her long wedge-like bows and clean sweeping run and giving lier an air of peculiar case and lightness. She i; iron, and painted jet black, tho dark mass of the hull only broken by a light gold moulding, which shows tho graceful curve of lier modelling-. She carries three light fore-and-aft-rigged masts, stepped with a jaunty rake, and all adapted for carry- ing ;ail. They nre also constructed so as to lower, in order lo allow the vessel, in the course of river navigation to pass under bridges. Tho eye glances from stem to stern, along the uninterrupted sweep of deck and bulwark, unbroken by those hump- back like deformities of paddle-boxes, which, before the invention of tho screw, disfigured every steam-boat. Tho length of tlie boat is 14(i feet; her beam 20 feet; her burden HOI) lons; lier power that of 120 horses; and lier draught of water fi...

CHINA PULO LUBO[?]N. (From the Friend of China.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

CHINA PULO LUBOAN. (From the Friend of China.) IT is generally pretty well known, that if this island has not already been formally ' ceded to Great Britain, and taken possession of as a British settlement, such will very shortly be the case. As a British colony, it may ultimately be a place of great import- ance, not only as a naval station calculated to protect our commerce from the swarms of piratical vessels which infest the sens which surround Borneo, but also as the sent of an extensive traffic drawn from that magnificent island-an island fertile in the productions of the tropics, and rich in minerals of the most valuable kind, which only requires internal pence and protection from the rapine of the predatory hands, who for ages have commanded the mouths of the numerous unnavigable rivers, to place it among the first of the Eastern Islands. To enable us duly to appreciate the ad- vantages to be derived from the establish- ment of a British colony, within fifteen miles of the e...

To the Editor of the Observer. EFFECTUAL MODE OF KILLING THEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 November 1845

To the Editor of the Observer. EFFECTUAL MOUE OF KILLING THEES. Sui,-Tho settlers «I llio westward, and I presume those upon tho Huon, and other thickly timbered localities, have discovered that to clear land effectually is no longer at- tended by profitable results. They have found that even to fell the trees, leaving the stump ' and burning off tho trunk and branches is unprofitable. A new system is, therefore, adopted. The larger trees are killetl without tho labour of felling them, and when dead they are not moro detrimen- tal to vegetable growth than tho mere stump. To kill tho tree speedily anti in an effectual manner, is, however, of the great- est importance ; otherwise the tenacious growth of our indigenous timber will pros trato the efforts of tho agriculturist. I have known settlers bestow much unnecessary la- bour in harking a tree from top to bottom. By this process it retains life for two years, during which periotl tho crops will surely fail from two causes-the shade ...
