American President's Message. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 June 1829

American President's Message. The President (Mr. APAMS) of the United States, sent his opening Message to both Houses of Con"ress, on the 2d De- cember last, as, we stated in a recent number of the Colonial Times. It breathes the frank and genuine sentiments of a free man to a free'people, just such as might be expected. Its extreme length (though every word of it is valuable, and doubly so*, when compared with the disengenuOus statements generally put forth by the Eurepean Government) prevents us giving more than an extract and a slight skeuih of its con- tents. It commences in this simple and beautiful strain : v To the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States-" ~ " . " Fellow Citizens of the Senate, and the House of Repre- sentatives ! If the enjoyment in profusion of tbo bounties of Providence forms a suitable suSject of mutual gratulatibos and grateful acknowledgments, w« are admonished at this re-v turn of the season, when the Representatives of the Nation 'are...

Criminal Court. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 June 1829

-- a " J; Criminal Court. SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1829. - This was the day which it was understood His Honour the Chief Justice had appoint-   ed to pass sentence on as many of the prisoners, under convic- tion in gaol, as it was practable to bring up for that purpose. The following seven wretched men were first arraigned, hav-   ing been convicted of robbery, viz. - William Madden, Mi- chael Herring, James Davis, John Hall, Robert McGuire, John Collins, and William Templemen. His Honour re- marked, that robbery was a crime punishable with death in   most civilized nations for centuries, notwithstanding which, he regretted to say, it had become more frequent in this Colony of late. A mistaken notion seemed to have prevailed with the prisoners, that their offence would not amount to robbe- ry, but only stealing from the person. They had been studi- ously anxious to learn the lines of distinction between different crimes, for the wicked purpose of kno...
