LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 June 1841
LOCAL. Mechanics' Institution.-On Thursday evening next the first meeting of the present session of this institution takes place, when a lecture will be delivered by the Pre. aident, the Rev. John Lillie, upon " the subserviency of the study of the works of nature to religion." The Com mittee have taken the old Wesleyan Chapel in Melville, street for the purposes of the lectures, and there is no doubt that the increased accommodation which they thus obtain, will greatly contribute to the comfort and conve- nience of both lecturer and audience. Since the last sea. sion the approval of the Home Government, respecting the grant of £150 per annum to the objects of this institution, has been received, and consequently we may now hope for something like energetic working ; for if the usual subscriptions of the members enabled it to progress ia the very satisfactory manner in which it has lately done, how much greater its facilities must now be when so im. portant an item as the government...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 June 1841
COLONIAL PRESS. Private letters have been received by the Minstrel, giving the result of the investigation into the Moorgate street Bank. Mr. Whitcomb, one of the Directors, for- merly a resident in this town, and well known to most of its inhabitants, and the never-to-be outwitted Mr. Boucher, were safely lodged in the Queen's Bench ! Will Mr. Whitcomb now say «' there has been no duping in the matter?" It is clear that he has been altogether victimized by the duplicity and cunning of Mr. Boucher ; and indeed what could be more consistent with the whole of Mr. Boucher's proceedings than that he should wind up by cheating the man through whom he was first enabled to cheat the public ? It is an admirable con- summation, and just what might have been anticipated. Mr. Whiicomb's property at home had been sold off to meet the liabilities of the Bank, and it was thought that a writ of foreign attachment would be immediately issued against his estates here. In the midst of all this we can...

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. RURAL JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 June 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PltESS. RURAL JUSTICE. Perhaps Ute worst manner in which the English reverence of wealth acts is in the absolute influence it has iii the choice of our .provincial unpaid magis- trates. If a ministry makes an appointment to the bench of judges, the credit of th'e Cabinet is staked upon the fitness of the individual for the high station to which he is elected ; but to place a man in the commission requires no more than that he should be of a certain property, and recommended by a certain interest. Some testimony of personal qualification is required for every other office except that of justice of the peace ; for that, and for that only, property is the sole thing looked to-with the occasional excep- tion of party politics. The solidity of the judgment or the intellectual acumen of the party scarcely ever form an item in the requisites required by tho Lord Lieutenant or the Lord Chancellor. This unfortunate fact has been forcibly recalled to us by some recent pr...

THE COURIER. Strcnuc et Çtogurre. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JUNE 11. Thb Lieutenant-Governor has directed that the imports of grain and flour, as well as the exporta, be regularly published in the Gazette, by which means the settler may be enabled to form a more correct estimate of the balance of trade, for, as the accounts are at present given, it would seem as if the produce of the colony alone were exported, whereas it frequently happens that large importations of flour take place, the greater part of which is re-exported, while many are led to place this to the account of colonial produce. In the course of the trial for libel on Wednesday last, when the defendant took occasion to say that the words " pointing out to the discrimination of the Secretary of State" were a playful repetition of " point- ing out to the discrimination of His Honor Mr. Jus- tice Montagu," which words had appeared in the Courier in reference to the circumstances of a case that had been before tried, Mr. Justi...

Mill. The Attorney-General was for the plaintiff, and Mr. Horne for the defendant. This was an action brought by the Derwent Bank against Mr. William Mill to recover the amount of a bill of exchange for £30, drawn by Mr. Peet, and accepted by the defendant. A long discussion ensued respecting the amendment of the pleas, which was at last agreed to, and they were amended accordingly. Mr. W. Peet stated that he had drawn a bill for £30 upon Mr. W. Mill, who accepted the same for his (witness's) accommodation; this was sent to the Derwent Bank for discount, but it was not discounted, and &nbsp; witness had never received any value for it from the Bank; witness had a...
