THE     HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1828.       On the 28th of February, in the House of Commons on a motion by Mr. Peel for a committee to inquire into the cause of crime, Mr. Hume asserted that the cause of the alarming increase of crime was distress among the lower orders, originating in the heavy ex- actions of the Government , Mr. Rice considered that bad watchmen and worse constables, the system of licensing public-houses, and the present mode of   transportation contributed to increase the number of offenders ; Mr. W. Horton attributed the increase of crime to the redundancy of population ; Dr. Lushing- ton said it was increased by the bad state of the po-   sons ; Alderman Waithman said it was owing to the want of employment ; Mr. Monck to taxation and the high price of provisions, and in Ireland from not con- ceding the Catholic claims ; Alderman Thomson to  ...

ON THE POUND LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 9 August 1828

ON THE POUND LAWS. In reply to the remarks of " A Poundkceper," 1 conceive that as far as relates to the feis to be allow- ed to Poundkeepors the Order of the Governor in Chief, of the loth of April, 1820, and extend) d to Van Diemen's land I7ln June following, is sufficient- ly explicit, Whether the rates of puundag» be too much or too little, does not militate against the sta- bility of the order. It cannot be contemplated that Governor Macquniie would have framed such an order without consulting his legal advisers, (the law ofliceis of the crown at that lime) and it appears to rae that it is impossible that even Solomon himself were he now living mid in Van Diemen'* land oould adopt a regular charge for feeding stock, for as the price of labour v.tiies so will the charge of men hired to attend on stock be more or less. With respect then to the charges for poundage, it must be very clear to every one inclim d to be guided Uy rea«on and common sense, thal no mistake can arise. For ...

RECORO of POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 16 August 1828

RECORD of POLICE. Hobart-town.-John Rawlins was sentenced one month to the Tread-wheel, and three months to the Chain-gang for stealing fruit trees out of Mr. Colli- cott's garden.- Stealing the fruit ,is bad enough, but he must be a wretch indeed who would steal trees and all. Thomas Wilson was committed for trial charged with stealing a pillow-case. Several persons were fined (one man 13th time) for being drunk & disorderly, as the phrase is, which we consider a pleonasm ;-for a man to be drunk must first be disorderly. The drunken man first puts himself, and then every person and thing about him in disorder William Lindsay, W. Jones, James Rowley and       Wm. Bray were committed for stealing wheat out of a vessel in the Harbour. Abraham Jacob was committed for trial for receiv- ing a stolen watch, well knowing it to be so.

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 16.1828. By some of the Company's people who have late- ly returned from Circular head, we learn some scanty particulars of the present condition of that establish- ment. The company enjoys there a tract of about 4000 acres of the finest land in the universe. The climate is also genial and pleasant. Some extra- ordinary crops of potatoes and turnips were produced last .season, both of immense size. There is a sub- sidiary pastoral settlement 20 miles in the interior called Hampshire hills, but the sheep do not thrive so well there as at Circular head the flocks being onsi derably thinned by deaths. An unusual mortality has indeed prevailed throughout the stock of the whole island this winter, nothing being more com- mon in traversing the tracts depastured by wild cat- tle, than to meet several lying dead in the course of oite day's excursion* Hie prevailing wood in that part, na indeed in many other parts of the island, is the valuable timbe...
