THE CASE OF MR. THOMAS ABBOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 4 July 1857
THE CASE OF THOMAS ABBOTT. &nbsp; The people of this colony are bringing into use- ful exercise a right which is seldom heard of in England, namely, the right of petitioning their representatives in the Assembly to redress any public wrong done to an individual. Fully pos- sessing as we do this invaluable privilege, how the heart yearns towards those suffering sons of freedom who, e'en at this moment, in the dun- geons of Italy and Austria, arc being scourged and tortured by their tyrant masters, their cries and dying protests reaching to no tribunal but that of God. This right, like others, we may, in the full knowledge of our liberty, occasionally abuse, by calling on our representatives to interfere in inci ters of trifling moment, fjt only perhaps for the adjudication of a Court of Requests. But the right is, nevertheless, a most valuable and im- portant right, and we know of no instance in which its value and importance becomes more clearly apparent than in the case of ...

The recent change has advanced thu rate to double tho sum. namely — Sixpence postage for a single hulf ounce ship letter, or X175K! per ton Now, whilst accept ing this high money rate of postage, enormous as it may at first fdglit appear, we do most strongly object to the pi Htngc weight of tho single letter commencing at half an-ounce, and do iuom. earnestly recommend that the postage weight should commence at one-quarter-of an ounce, yet at the same proportionate risen rate of money postage, iu tho following manner : — SKAl.Kn LKlTKIl 1'OSTAdK. 1.
