THE ECLIPSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 26 May 1825

THE ECLlPSE; On Wednesday the 11th instant, at about the hour of ten o'clock in the forenoon, the cutter Eclipse, belonging to Messrs. John Atkinson arid James Reibey, was piratically taken from alongside the Government Wharf, at the port of Newcastle, Hunter's River, by thirteen prisoners of the crown, three of whom are said to be seamen. They were facilitated in their escape by the sails being loosened to dry, and the master only being   on deck at the time, so that they had only to put him below and slip the cable. There was a sentinel on-duty at the wharf, when she began to move ; she was almost out of musket shot before suspicion was excited. and any alarm given; she was nearly round Nobby 's Island before a boat, properly manned and armed, could be got ready. The master and the crew were put into a boat, which was along side bclonging to the government, but this was not done until the vessel was well out at sea. At twelve o'clock she was just visi ble faraway, in ...

TOBACCO-SPIRITS, or, DUTIES OR-NO DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 26 May 1825

TOBACCO-SPIRITS, or.DUTIESOR-NODUTJES/ The history of this wondroiii affair is soon told. ^ Certain f merchants have a large quantity of tobacco in the honded stores.. They are informed, they ascertain, no matlor'which, that no duties have by any law been imposed on tobacco — Utalj events .tliey imagine there is a1 doubt (though we arc 'persuaded that there is no doubt at all) about the matter,' and they choose to take the benefit of' that doubt. Accordingly they apply to .the Naval Officer to have the tobacco 'delivered up lo them, at the same time stating that they will be answerable to him for the duties^tliat are leviable on tho article. Is this equivocation ? 'We offer no opinion. ? The question about duties is partly mooted in Court in the course of obtaining a decision on a pending case about evading duties on tobacco, nothing how evei of a conclusive nature is elicited. The Naval Officer by this time becomes ac quainted with the opinions which are getting disseminated, per c...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 26 May 1825

In our last Number we considered, with what pro. ..... a Law having a retrospective effect might be made in the Colony with reference to the supposed omissions, respecting Duties. In the speculation, we then ventured on, we viewed the subject, in order to place it in every light, as if there existed a power here to create an ex post facto law—as if too that power might be assumed by the Council. We shall now extend our observations, and shew that no means within the Colony, that no measure, can legally be resorted to, to meet the alleged defects.   It is a principle of the British Law which has grown   up with the British Constitution, that the people alone shall tax themselves. This they invariably do through their Representatives. Every deviation from this principle derogates from the Common Law, and can   only be allowed when, and exactly as, recognized by the consent of the Imperial Parliament. This consent was necessary, and was given, to ...

CRIMINAL COURT. (MAY 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 26 May 1825

CRIMINAL COURT. (MAY 20.) John Claig was arraigned on a charge of having committed wilful murder on the body of Lucy Claig, his wife. Dr. Alexander Nesbitt examined. — I was applied to on the 10th of January last to attend the house of the prisoner. Upon examination I found the upper part of the body rapidly ad vancing to a state of putrefaction. I observed a cut on the   head, just above the right ear, in length from one inch and an half, to two inches deep. I also examined the state of the brain ; when I turned it out of its place a quantity of blood was diffused in the base of the brain. From the state of the body it was impossible to discern any marks. I am decidedly of opi nion the deceased died from an effusion of blood in the brain. I   conceive, from the appearance of the deceased, she had sustained an injury some time previous to her death. Warby stated, that he was at the house in the evening previ ous to the decease of Mrs. Claig ; sat down to tea with her an...
