MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. The brig Julia is under offer for the sum of     £1,300 ; but she is not likely to meet with a pur-   chaser here, at that price.—Launceston Examiner.

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JULY 25. THE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JULY 25. THE PUBLIC MEETING. HURRAH for Taxation ! The meek colo- nists have received with such dutiful sub- mission the notification of intended taxes, by which a revenue is to be raised to keep among them the crime of an Umpire, that Government has made another experiment upon their forbearance. The last Gazette informs us of the objects of " An Act to increase the amouut of duty payable for Licenses in certain cases," to be introduced in the coming Session of Council, the Li- censes for which an increased sum is to he payable being—Publicans' Licenses, Whole- sale Spirit Licenses, Pawnbrokers' Licenses, Auctioneers' Licenses, Stage Coach Li- censes, Butchers' Licenses, Hawkers' and Carriers' Licenses, Licenses for Carts, Drays, and Boats, Cab Licenses, Licenses for Houses of Public Entertainment, and   Licenses permitting liquors to be sold on board Steam Boats.

MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS. THE mention of municipal institutions, of civic honour and enjoyments, disperses the gloom of ordinary life, and excites some- thing like merriment and humour. Whe- ther the dignity displayed by robed alder- men contrasts strikingly with the costume of their professions, or that magisterial gra- vity is shaded by the bickerings of the mar- ket and the keenness of the dealer, or that the abundance and luxury of civic ta- bles revives a series of grateful recollec- tions and pleasing hopes, from whatever cause, no man speaks of civic incorporations, without a smile, or anticipates their estab- lishment without expecting that fun and plenty which are their usual concomitants. But the history of our national liberties is blended with the records of towns and cities. In them the principles of liberty were first understood, and first received countenance and protection. The bounda- ries of corporations often stayed the victori- ous tyrant, who would have swept ever...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. The numerous and highly rspectable audience assembled to hear Dr. Officer's second Lecture on Geology manifested the growing interest taken in Geological in- quiries. After a recapitulation of the lead-   ing topics of the preceding Lecture the   Doctor gave a general account of the fossil remains found in the different superimposed   strata, from the moluscos animals in the lowest in which fossils are found, to the   highest of the tertiary scries, the fossils of   which bear the greatest proportion of simi-   larity to existing species. It was very   evident from the gradations of discovered fossils that many animals had existed for a certain period to become entirely extinct and to be succeeded by new species. In fact so perfectly distinct were the animals of the lower and upper strata that there must have been a creative energy perpetually exerted to introduce new for...

SUPREME COURT, CRIMINAL SIDE, Tuesday, 22nd July, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

SUPREME COURT,   CRIMINAL SIDE, Tuesday, 22nd July, 1845. At 10 o'clock His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu took his seat on the Bench. Ten prisoners were arraigned, and the Court proceeded to the trial of— Edward Kelly and Frederich Jacques for having on the 1st instant stolen an opossum skin rug, belonging to William Taylor, of Goulburn-street. The rug was hanging on a line in the prosecutor's yard, and was missed on the day named in the indictment. The pri- soners on the 2nd instant took an opossum skin rug to their lodgings, and offered it for   sale for 2s., but it ultimately turned out to   be that stolen from W. Taylor. The Judge in his charge, told the jury they must be satisfied that both the pri- soners were present at the stealing ; if they were not satisfied of such being the case they must acquit them. They were found guilty, and sentenced 12 months' imprisonment and hard labour. James Jackson was then indicted for having, on the 9th Mar...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

Origibal Correspondence. To the Editor of the Observer. SIIR, As there has been considerable anxiety shewn concerning an extract which appeared in your paper from Dr. Nixon's book on Baptism, whether the sentimnets expressed in that startling paragraph were those of St. Cyprian, in the third century, or those of Dr. Nixon in the nineteenth. I take the liberty of asking, through your columns,     whether Dr. Nixon does fully admit the validity of baptism by Dissenters ? The solution of this question may, perhaps, put the matter to the test, and will, of course, be most interesting to the public, whether Protestants of     the Church of England or Dissenters. — I am, Sir, yours obediently, AN OBSERVER OF THE TIMES.

To the Editor of the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

To the Editor of the Observer. SIR,—I hope yon will allow me a short, space in your valuable journal, to call the attention of the Comptroller-General (the, attention of the public having long been directed to it) to the practice of the probationers, when out on indulgence on Sa- turdays, collecting in groups of from five to ten each on the public footpaths, and thereby causing great inconvenience and annoyance to the respec- table inhabitants of this city—more particularly to the ladies—many of whom I have heard express a   determination not to go out those days, unless ac- tually obliged, from fear of meeting with some ob- struction or insult from the class referred to. The evil, I apprehend, does not end here ; for it is a common occurrence to see these men loitering about the shop-windows, and gratifying their cu-     riosities at what is there exposed for sale, and is it not reasonable to presume that their presence will operate as a preve...

LORD STANLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

LORD STANLEY.   LORD STANLEY has acquired the reputa- tion of being one of the most effective de- baters in the House of Commons, and has attracted much of public attention since he broke from the Whig Cabinet, in 1834. During the interval between that year and September, 1841, he took his seat with the Conservative Opposition, and is now Secre- tary of State for Colonial Affairs in Sir Ro- bert Peel's Ministry. Lord Stanley was born in the year 1800, is the eldest son of the Earl of Derby, who is described in " Carpenter's Peerage " as " a hearty Whig, an ardent cock-fighter, and the husband of Miss Frazer, the actress." Lord Stanley (then Mr. E. G. Stanley) took office as Under Secretary of State for the Colonies during the short administration of Lord Goderich, and went into opposition on the formation of the Wellington Ministry. In 1830, on the formation of Lord Grey's Go- vernment, he was appointed Chief Secretary for Ireland, and held that important posi- tion til...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. NEW ZEALANDERS.- ETHNOLOGICAL SO- CIETY.—This society met on Wednesday, Admiral Sir Charles Malcolm, president, in the chair. A paper was read by Dr. King, from the pen of Mr. Bright, entitled " The New Zealander as he was." Cuvier's clas- sification of the New Zealander with the Ethiopian variety of mankind does not meet with the approval of Mr. Bright. His dark visage is attributed to the practice of the tattoo, and the hair, though somewhat pe- culiar is insufficient to mark a distinction. Individuals tn every tribe on the eastern, western, and northern parts of tho North Island are to be found with a decided Hebrew cast of feature. Accustomed to transcribe as their signature the tattooings on the face, induces Mr. Bright to believe the practice had on origin similar to our heraldric emblazonry. When the club and spear were their weapons they lived in towns built on the tops and sides of precipi- tous hills, and fenced round with timber. The several houses were ...

PUNISHMENT AND CORRECTIVE DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

PUNISHMENT AND CORRECTIVE DISCIPLINE. THE necessity of dealing with convicts en masse is a great obstacle to their reforma- tion. Man is a social animal—if company is within his reach he will keep it : man is a partisan animal—he will tolerate, defend, adopt, the views and habits of those with whom he keeps company. If you could separate a convict from all old associations —throw him among people entirely new to him, industrious, and tolerably regular in their conduct—he might adopt their fashions. But so long as he is known to and within reach of the criminal class, his reformation is next to impossible. Captain Maconochie, some years at the head of the doubl-penal settlement on Nor- folk Island, makes an observation that shows how far corrective influences may in a man- ner refine and elevate the character of convicts, leaving their morals little if any- thing amended. The view he presents is a curious counter-part to Burke's assertion that the moral delinquencies of French aris- ...

THE CHIEF JUSTICE AND THE CONVICT MAXFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 25 July 1845

THE CHIEF JUSTICE AND THE CONVICT MAXFIELD. We have great respect for Chief Justice Pedder, whose personal worth we have never heard questioned in a colony in which the character and conduct of public men are canvassed not with freedom only, but sometimes with severity, and on the bench of which he has presided for many years. It is with regret therefore, that we feel our- selves compelled to express a very decided difference in sentiment from his Honor, although in the expression of this regret we do not desire it to be understood that our respect for the Chief Justice extends in general to his opinions, which on the con- trary we apprehend have been fashioned according to the prevailing principles and tone of thought, of a period, from the cha- racteristic features of which intelligent inquiry and discussion are carrying society every day farther and farther. It would be seen by a paragraph in our last publication that the learned Judge in passing sentence of death upon Maxfield, ...

A petition was then handed to tho Court, praying, in consequence of tho difficult situation in which they were placed, and their inability to defend themselves, his Honor would appoint counsel to defend them, which application his Honor, under the circumstances, did not feel justified in granting, and enquired if either of them wished to postpone their trial, to which an answer in the negative being returned, tho indictment which consisted of five counts, each charging the prisoners with the wilful murder of Jane Saunders, on the 18th Jan. last, was read. The first count charged them with thrust- ing a handkerchief into the mouth of the de- ceased, covering and suppressing her mouth and nose, thereby...

In a brief speech he dwelt upon the in- justice of the threatened taxes which were not called for, he said, by our necessities, but by thc fact of the public money being squandered on use loss und overpaid ofïïccra. He contended also in favor of the principle that thc subject should not be taxed, excepting by his representatives, and , suggested that instead of petitioning the Council composed as it was of Crown ofllcers and nominees, I the people should remonstrate, and to this end, in calling the public meeting due care should be taken I to provide u place lar...
