Young Wiseman, son of another veteran of Australia, is commander, and the crew it is said is to consist of bold native born seamen, real true blues.

This sum comes out of tbe pockets of men, who it is clear do not pay, because they cannot pay. If the actions turn were just, why did not these persons save the costs by confessing judgment ?

LAVNCESTON ADFERTJSER. MONDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1829. It is the public duty of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but in the. discharge of this duty he must not expect to find his road perfectly free from the arrows of those who are interested in preventing the JBgis of truth from confronting and dissipating their power. We can never see a man who has been transported to these Colonies for a breach of the 'Game Laws' without considering him as a vtcftm of cruelly and absurdity. Thirteen hundred convictions annually take place under these laws alone ; and some even go so far as to say that the Game Laws are the primary cause of the dreadful increase of crime. We eanuot go this length, but as the Game Laws stand they are most cer tainly a disgrace to the British Code, end for what are these despotic laws main tained ? Only that the land proprietors may have raord sport, more game to eat, or give to tlieirfriends than they would have if these Ibws were repealed or amended ! Various bills Lave...

Consolation to Drunkards.— The Act of the   9th Geo.IV. c. 61. s. 35, repeals the law for the suppression of drunkenness, without providing any punishment for offenders in this respect after the 10th of October. Will not this act (published in the Atlas, Sept. 1828) involve our Magistrates in something like the unpleasant situation in which our present Judge stands with respect to all the prisoners tried in this Colony for more than a year past ? We are of opinion they would do well to act cau- tiously. Quere.— Do our magistrates, more particularly the paid Police Magistrates seek out and possess themselves of all new Acts of Parliament, or do they go by the rule of thumb ? Or are the Acts of the British Parliament of no effect here, until they are confirmed by our learned and able Le- gislative Council ? Stupendous Undertaking.— The works of the Liverpool and Manchester railway are proceeding with great rapidity ; and it is anticipated that the whole will be completed ...
