SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SITTINGS. Friday, 4th June. Patrick Minni ghan, who was arraigned for the murder of James Travis, at l»orl Arthur, on the 27th of April lust, was placed at the bar to take.his trial for that crime. The circumstances of this case, as borne out by the evidence, arc as follows : A gung of fifteen men, the very worst characters on the settlement, arc chained to mi iron cable, and employed during the day in breaking stones in a long and narrow yard, not fur from the penitentiary ; in this gang worked also the deceased Travis and the prisoner »linnighnn. Some of the most desperate of these meu had formed a plan to escape, and for this purpose one of them had obtained a file, with which to cut thei: irons. This was discovered and the plot frustrated, when a suspicion of having made known the circumstance fell upon the deceased, a lhere lud. On the morning of the day when the lad was struck the prisoner had used several threats ngainst him, saying that he had got some...
THE CABINET. THE VOICE OF HOME TO THE PRODIGAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 June 1841
THE CABINET. THE VOICE OF HOME TO THE PRODIGAL. BY MRS. HEMANS. Oh ! when wilt thou return To thy spirit's eorly loves ; To the freshness of the morn, To the stillness of the groves ? The summer birds arc calling Thy household porch around, And the merry waters falling,' With sweet laughter in their sound. Oh ! thou has wander'd long From thy home, without a guide. And thy native woodland song, In thine alter'd heart bath died. Thou hast flung the wealth away, And the glory of thy spring ; And to thee the leaves' light play Is a lung-forgotten thing O'er the image of the sky, Which the" lake's clear bosom bore Darkly may shadows lie But not for evermore. Give back thine heart again To the freedom of the woods To the birds' triumphant strain, To the mountain solitudes. But when wilt thou return ? Along thine own pure air There are young sweet voices borne Oh 1 should not thine he there 1 Still at thy father's board There is kept a place for thee, And, by thy smile restored, Joy round...
ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 June 1841
ORIGINAL POETRY. Wc have been favoured with the following lines, which we have great pleasure in inserting, as they evince con. siderable taste and more than ordinary power of poetic composition : LINES ON THE DEATH OF THE VENERABLE THE ARCHDEACON HUTCHINS. Uroken's the link between this earth and thee, And o'er thy soul breathes immortality ; Call'd to a future state just rcach'd thy prime, Unvvarn'd by sickness, uudecay'd by time ; No ling'ring illness tir'd the aching heart, Unseen, death pois'd and launch'd his f'atul dart, Whilst unprcpar'd he thought to grasp his prey, And reap new triumphs from thy soul's dismay ; But 'twas in vain, the tyrant bovv'd no slave, And met his victor in thy awful grave. Rare combination of the mind and heart, Of spotless virtue and exalted art ; Tho' mute the lips, and still'd the Christian's voice ThaUvvith persuasion chang'd man's erring choice, Still from thy tomb the bright example flows, And all thou taught'st in life thy death bestows. Far f...
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. SLAVERY IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 June 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. SLAVERY IN THE UNITED STATES. IT is gratifying to see that Mr. Van. Buren has deemed it necessary to hi? reputation "with «the-avorld, in taking leave of the President's chair, to conclude his Message with a denunciation of the slave-trade. This, little as it is, is something gained to the cause of humanity-gained entirely by the efforts of those, who in this and other countries, have devoted them- selves to the task of exposing the ho»w>rs of Ameri- can slavery. The state of society in America, the general feeling there upon all matters connected with slavery, is so fierce and relentless, that we question whether a ma- jority of the members present went heartily with Mr. Van Buren even in this denunciation of a traffic which America is bound by treaty to suppress. Mr. Van Buren, however, in drawing the eyes of the world upon his conduct in respect to slavery, has tempted us rather to execrate him for the oppression lie has allowed, than to thank hitn...
PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 June 1841
PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. On Thursday, Lord John Russell, in rising lo move for a Select Committee of the House of Commons upon the ACIB relating lo South Australia, spoke as follows " I feel some difficulty about making now any statement in this case; for though I have a decided opinion upon the Acts relating to South Australia, 1 am anxious that the investiga- tion into them should commence without the bias of any pre- vious statement. What it is quite necessary that I should show is, that we cannot proceed with the colony of South Australia in its present state, and without bringing forward same measure on the subject, or instituting an investigation into the Acts re- lating to the colony. Hut as the colony of South Australia is founded by Acts of Parliament the result of discussions in this House, 1 have thought it better to propose a Committee lo in- vestigate those Acts._ This colony was founded in a peculiar manner and on peculiar principles : it was founded...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 June 1841
LOCAL. We understand that a quantity of British silver is expected by the Commissariat from the Cape. MECHANICS' INSTITUTION,-By an advertisement in another part of our paper, it will be observed that the opening Lecture by the President has been postponed until Thursday evening next, in the hope, we understand, that it may then be conve- nient for His Excellency to honor the meeting with his presence. LICENSED ViCTUALtsas.-We have given offence to some of the parties connected with this society, in some strictures which we passed upon pawnbroking in this colony, because we affirmed that the wholesale system adopted in licensing public-houses was calculated to abet and encourage crime. They immedi- ately set it down that all public-houses are included in this charge. How respectable men could have fallen into such an error we are really at a loss to conjecture ; because' they must be well aware that what we contend for-and have long con- tended for, and which we have every reason to...
