THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JULY 12. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 July 1841

THE UUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, JULY 12. , The Sessions of the Supreme Court terminated on Friday ;? we are happy to say, having been almost entirely free from any exhibition of those strange vagaries of the law for which our assizes are generally celebrated. It was also extremely gratifying to observe, that in spite of the depression of the times, and the immense amount of over-due paper — in the Civil.Court — tbere was only one action for trial. If we refer to the civil cause lists in the sister colony, we invariably find, that they occupy, at least, a column, consisting principally of actions brought on overdue bills. We rejoice to see tbis forbearance on the part of the mercantile community of Launceston, for it iB only by pursuing sucli a course, that the present dis tresses will meet with ultimate alleviation. A suggestion of His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu, relative to taking the evidence of children, seems to us well deserving the notice of the Government His Honor expressed a ...

SUPREME COURT. CBIMINAL SRXIHGS. Thursday, Jvly 8th. Before His Honor Mr.' Justice Montagu and a Civil Jury. Edward Man was indicted for the wilful murder of Samuel Brewell on the 7th Novemberlast. The Attorney-General stated the case to the jury. The prisoner at the bar was indicted for the wilful mur der of Samuel Brewell, and to convict him upon this information, they must be convinced that he deliberately and with malice aforethought, inflicted such wound9 upon the person of Samuel Brewell as caused.his death. They must first be satisfied that Samuel Brewell is dead, and secondly, that be came to his death by similar means to those charged in the information; if they were satisfied on these two points, then came the more im portant consideration, whether the prisoner at the bar was the man by whom the deed was perpetrated? He would caution the jury against receiving the statement he was about to make as evidence against the prisoner, he merely addressed them for the sake of simp...

Friday, July 9. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 July 1841

Friday, July 9. James Bates, was indicted for the manslaughter of Samuel Sbelshirc, by shooting him, on the 24th June last. Mr. Kocher appeared for the prisoner. The Attorney- General explained to the Jury the nature of the case. The prisoner was a constable and frequent robberies having been committed by runaways in the district where he was stationed, he was sent out for the purpose of apprehending them, in company with another man who would be called before them. They came to a hut in which there was a light, and upon demanding admittance a man who it would be proved was an absconded offender, and whom the prisoner had therefore every right to apprehend, made his escape ; the prisoner -fired upon him and shot him dead upon the spot. The only reason he had for putting him. on bis trial was that he' thought it just possible he might have appre hended the man by other means than those resorted to, if they were of opininion that he fired sooner than he ought to have done, tbe informa...

MADRitfros. — A young married gentleman lived on an estate in a very retired and lonely part of the country, at a great distance from town. At that time tbe island vras covered with thick forests and impenetrable jungles. Estates were far apart and divided from each other by deep ravines, high mountains, rapid rivers, or pathless woods ; communication was very diffi cult in consequence ; narrow foot-paths, and de rious tracts over the mountains, and along the. brink of precipices were ihe only medium' of, intercourse between the inhabitants, instead of the fine broad roads over which the carriages of the English now roll so smoothly. This gen tleman's family consisted only of his wife, he/ sister, and himself ;J)oth the ladies were very beautiful and attractive. It happened unfor tunately, that some troops were stationed in the neighbourhood of the estate, commanded by a man of the most infamous character. The army of revolutionized France was of a very different order from that whi...
