IMPROMPTU ON CARE. "You lay out too much pains For purchasing but trouble." [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
IMPROMPTU ON CARE. -"Yon lily out too much vmins Tor purchasing but trouble." In the days that are past, care stuck to me closely, But hid mo goctl bye, when I sail'd to these shores ; Wo parted good friends ; he grinn'd most jocosely, Whilst boasting his triumphs, by tens and by scores. You blame me said he, for so much exacting, But am I not courted, and vvorshipp'd Mid kept. By the simplest folks ;.who are always enacting, Some pranks of mero folly, for which they havo wept. But the Truth is my old friend, you deserve to be free, You desp.'sc all my power, though I've tried you full oft; Away then, be off; settle down beyond sen, Bo happy and prosperous, hut think sometimes of inc.
THE CHIEF POLICE MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
¡THE CHIEF POLICE MAGISTRATE. ¡Tins is the last day Mr. Btjkgt.ss will preside fat the Police Office in his capacity of Chief iPolice Magistrate. Like many others, this ¿gentleman has been called upon to relinquish Pan office he has held for a lengthened period, ji'in obedience to the stern demand made by the ifpeople for retrenchment. We have fought ffthe battle of reduction with all the energy we i ¡could command; we saw its absolute necessity; || and we could foresee its consequences. The I enormous expenditure of the Government was ! destroying the vigor of the Colony, and rctard jj ing our progress. Wo were not only lavishly I) squandering the income of the present, but j we were anticipating the revenue of the future. || We were crippling posterity and entangling its resources ;-we saw this ; and we protested against its continuance. We knew, at the time, that retrenchment would involve the t necessity of dispensing with services long be I stowed ; and, we knew, too, that, in ...

SUPREME COURT. - WEDNESDAY. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. Before Mr. Justice Horne. The court sat at 10 a.m. pursuant to ad- journment, Alexander Cullen was indicted for the wil- ful murder of Elizabeth Ross, at Hobart Town on the 13th June last. The prisoner was de- fended by Mr. Lees, and pleaded Not Guilty. The Solicitor-General stated the case to the jury, and reminded them that it was their duty to divest from their minds anything they might have heard or read respecting the pre sent case, that might be prejudicial to the pri- soner at the bar. It appeared that the de- ceased Elizabeth Ross had lived with the pri- soner for two or three months previous to her death. She had also lived with him prior to that, but had left him to go down the river, and had returned to him in March or April. Elizabeth Ross was seen alive the last time by a person named Abbey about half-past 9 on the evening of 13th June.\ She was walking down the passage towards Liverpool street, followed by the prisoner.

THE ALLEGED POISONING AT GLASGOW [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
THE ALLEGED POISONING AT GLASGOW The following are some additional details of this extraordinary affair, furnished by the Dundee Advertiser : It may be stated that evidence of great im- portance for the defence of Miss Smith, the young lady now in custody, has been obtained in Dundee ; and as the charge against her has altractcd so much attention, and the facts in favorof her innocence are not generally known, it is only proper that we should mention that M. l'Angellier resided ia Dundee for nine mouths in 1852, and was consequently well known to many parties in the town, with whom he wus on terms of intimacy, and who heard with regret of his sudden and untimely end.* According to the statement ofthose who were acquainted with him hero he was bora and bred in Jersey, and was therefore not at Frenchman, as has been stated ; but he was of French extraction, his father having fled from Franco nt the period of the first French revolution, and settled in Jersey,as a nursery« man.

IMPROVEMENT IN STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
IMPROVEMENT IN STEAMERS. There are in every year, says the New York Tribune, more minders detected than are recorded in the police intelligence, and many manslaughters which are not called by the right name. There it> a method of massacre peculiar to the present which sends scores of our fellow creatures, unkennelled and uncofiined, to the maw of the uns.it table sea, or which heaps upon the railways a wiithhsg mass of expiring wretches. When one of these frightful events has occuri ed, we are accustomed to speak of it as a " terrible accident," as " a dispensation of Providence," as a .' mysterious calamity"-as if it had not been purely the result of recklessness, of negligence, und of want of that " extraordinary care" which the law demands for boxes and bales, if not for human beings. How long we shall con- tinue to cheat ourselves into this cnnplacency we cannot say ; but we think that public good sense and the steady advance of science, which must naturally press its claims ...

THE MERCURY Published Monday, Wednesday & Friday FRIDAY MORNING. JULY 31st. 1857. WHAT OF FINGAL? [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
THE MERCURY îiJuùliflft.e'o iHaittng, íiileímcsBRíJ # Jciöaa FRIDAY MORNING. JULY 31st. 1837. WHAT OP FINGAL? Week after week are our perplexities increased by the tantalizing reports which reach us from the Police Magistrate at Fingal. Daring the last week, we are told, that only 12 men have been at work, and that only for a portion of the time, and they h ive obtained three ounces of gold between them. Now, this is not an unusual thing, hut a fair average of the weekly results which have boen forwarded from Fingal for a very long time.' If we apply the same principle here that has generally been considered a correct one with referenced the Gold Fields in Victoria, viz.-that the larger tho number of diggers, the larger will bo the amount of gold obtained, what would be the result? These men, in consequence of the overflowing of the water, have only worked three or four days-but call it a week ; a,ud, thoy have netted 3 ouncss of gold. Had there been 5000 men at work, and the sati3 ...
TO-DAY'S TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
TO-DAY'S TEIAL. Ii "We have refused all along to offer a solitary k observation upon the trials now pending be- ll tween Mr Gregson and our contemporaries. fe "We have hitherto held the opinion that to \publiely argue the merits of any trial, prior to its being brought before a jury, is not only bwithout a sufficient precedent, but, that it is highly immoral and indecent. To endeavour to bias the minds of a jury by exparte state- ments-whether on the one side or the other k'^-i-appears to us to be an outiage upon all ypinciples of justice and equity. We regret, ftjertremelyjthat this more manly and dignified |f?coiir*e was not adopted by our contempora ii ries. The law will vindicate itself on all oo Jíjí'osions, if allowed to pursue its own uninter |»5 irapted course^ ; and we cannot, therefore, too Fitrongly deprecate the un-English attempt B which has just been made to warp the minds U of a jury, before the real merits ol' a case arc ' brought equitably before them. We do mot bel...
LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 31 July 1857
I,OCAL NEWS. DisnuACEFCii Conduct.-During the inquest on tho body of Sarah Alice Hawkins, recently murdered by the suicide Owen Clarke, one of the witnesses adverted in strong terms to the disgraceful scene which had taken place, in the house where Clarke had stabbed tho woman and shot himself, on the day succeeding the murder (Sunday.) It appears that wretches-having the form but devoid of the sympathies of human beings-had congregated there drinking, swearing, and shouting, nay, even dancing in the blood of Clarke, flourish- ing tomahawks, and acting like maniacs th«ir disgusting heartlessness and depravitv. The Coroner stated that he was not a teeto- taller himself, although he was fully aware of the evils which aiose from drink ; attribu- ting, very justly, the hm rid revelries of these abandoned people to the maddening influence of alcohol. As the present law seemed per- fectly ineffectual to restrain these degrading propensities or to obviate the evils to which they led, he so...
