MISCELLANY, ORIGINAL AND SELECT. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 28 January 1826

MISCELLANY, ORIGINAL AND SELECT. Sir Robert Peel has made an important improvement in the manufacture of Bri- tish lace, by printing it with fast colours. Some beautiful specimens of lace dresses so printed are exhibited in London, from the house of Edmund Peel & Co. Mr. Peel has introduced a Bill into Parliament to prevent frivolous Writs of Error, or appeals from one tribunal to another. He shewed the necessity of this measure by referring to the great number of those vexatious writs which   had been issued ; not 10 in 1000 were brought for any other purpose than delay. The fees of the Judges chiefly arose from these writs ; but as they now belonged to the Public, it was better that the practice should be regulated. By the new Judges' Salaries Bill, the Lord Chief Justice has a salary of £10,000 per annum, the retired allowance for the Puisne Judges is £3,500; the Master of the Rolls, the Vice Chancellor, the Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, and the Chief Ba...

He was first discovered by a boy belonging to Mr. Cox, of the aboriginal tribe, who immediately exclaimed- "There is Jefferies !" The parties remained con-   cealed till he was within reach of a mus- ket ball, when one of Mr. Davies's men and one of...

FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE     APPREHENSION OF JEFFERIES. The day before this fortunate occur- ence Mr. Dark being at Mr. Cottrell's, after sunset, Jefferies approached follow- ing two men, with their hands tied behind them, whom he placed between him and danger as a kind of shield. Mr. Dark went out with his gun, and when about a hundred yards off, stopped to load ; which, owing to the ball being too large for the bore, occupied him some time. Meanwhile Jefferies asked for a tin pot, a blanket, and other articles, threatening if he stirred a step he would shoot both him and the two men, and asked him what he meant to do. Mr. Dark answered he would shew him presently ; on which Jefferies observed, if be was killed it would be his own fault, to which Mr. Dark retorted "fire away," and continued loading his gun while Jefferies fired at him. He stood with his side towards him, and two pistol balls went through the tail of his coat, and another between his coat...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 4 February 1826

SYDNEY NEWS. We have received Sydney Gazettes by the Larne to the 19th January. They contain various articles of interesting intelligence ; among others, we select the following : The Rev. Dr. Lang announces the sanction he holds to dispense the ordi- nances of the Church of Scotland, and to solemnize the rites of marriage, where one or other of the parties is a native of Scotland, a Presbyterian, or a Member of the Scotch Church in that Colony ; and he challenges all Clergymen, Lawyers, or others, to shew any thing which can in- validate such marriages.   An Address was to be presented by the   Free Inhabitants of New South Wales to His Excellency General Darling upon the occasion of his assuming the Govern- ment of the Colony. This address was produced by Mr. Wentworth, and is not so much a congratulation on the arrival of the new Governor, as an expression of their want of an Elective Assembly, and unlimited Trial by Jury. The suffering of these wants, a...

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. SIR, - Having levied a fine upon a Government prisoner, for purchasing regimental necessaries from a soldier of the 57th Regiment, I hope you will allow me the gratification of placing the amount paid into my hands, £2 10s, at your dis- posal, to be applied to whatever charitable purpose your intimate knowledge of local interests, or your casual acquaintance with individual wants, may deem most expedient; and, at the same time, best calculated to attain the two important ends of narrowing the sphere of a practice in itself cardinally vicious (if not danger- ous as operating upon the feelings, habits, and principles of the soldier) and rendering the legal corrective a means of prevention, an instrument of punishment, and a vehicle of administering relief to suffering humanity. The extent of eleemosynary relief, as affecting the general interests of society, ought, I imagine, rather to be estimated by the principles that regulate charitable ap...

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette — 11 February 1826

Toihe Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. Sir-The destrnctiveness of the weevil has caused me to pay some attention to that insect. When the Commissioner of Enquiry was in New South Wales, Sir J. Jamison satisfactorily proved it to gene I rate in the body of the wheat and maize, whilst in giowth. My attention was attracted the other day at a Store, by observing the myriads existing in a qua» tity of maize, and it was pointed out by a person present that the insect had wings, which was fully established by several thousands of them taking flight as they crawled to the store doors» The loss by moth and weevil in New South Wales, is quite equal, on an average, of seven years to one-third of the total produce. Some- times it greatly exceeds this, and amounts to a half of the whole. The menns employed to get rid of it is constant screening in the granary, and destroying the refuse by'fire. The interest of thi« Island has" suffered materially from the introduction of this insect. A Sydney ...
