Miscellan[?] Shipping. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
Miscellaneous Shipping. &nbsp; The brig Julia is fitting up for the conveyance of horses to Portland Bay. The Souvenir put back on Friday, shortly after having left the heads, owing to contrary winds. The Pedlar has not sustained so much injury as was anticipated, and it was expected she would be raised, and got into the cove at George Town yes- terday. The Robert Matthews, which cleared out at this port for London on the 30th October, arrived in Sydney on the 10th July, making the voyage home and back, landing cargo, and shipping another in less than eight months and a-half. This is one of the quickest passages on record.-Launceston Ex- aminer, August 2.

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, AUGUST 8. THE ROAD BILL REJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, AUGUST 8. THE ROAD BILL REJECTED. A SPIRITED debate in the Legislative Council closed yesterday evening, at five o'clock, by the rejection of the Road Act. The votes would have been equal had not the Comptroller-General thrown his into the scale of the opposition,—for which we give him thanks. Mr. Gregson did his part man- fully and well, and managed cleverly to in- troduce into his speeches much matter likely to have a wider effect. The Council was crowded by visitors, who could with diffi- culty refrain at times from an audible ex- pression of their sentiments.
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THE ponderous dulness of the Council's proceedings, on Tuesday, was preceded by a scene originated by a motion of Mr. Ker- mode, which elicited a lecture from the Council schoolmaster, Mr. Bicheno. Mr. Kermode moved for the production of we don't know how many despatches, relating to we can't tell how many subjects, of the very existence of which despatches neither the honorable member nor any one else seemed to have any positive knowledge. We col- lected as much as that the worthy senator had an eye to the expenditure of the Govern- ment, and that he desired to learn what notice Lord Stanley had taken of the re- peated protests of the " independent " members against the colony being burdened with the entire cost of the police and gaols. Mr. Bicheno replied, and as usual, did not confine himself to a simple, off-hand, straight- forward statement of facts, which would have set all question at rest ; but having summoned all his wisdom into his counte- nance, a...
THE "COURIER" ON ECCLESIASTICAL COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
THE " COURIER " ON ECCLESIAS- TICAL COURTS. WE repeat, for the information of our con- temporary, that by the law of the colony, Van Diemen's Land and the Anglican Church are distinct. Except for the honor conferred by his Royal Mistress, the Bishop of that church is a mere minister of religion. That he should control his own clergy by the forms of his communion we do not dis- pute ; but provided they avoid the breach of common law, we do not recognise the smallest concern in their quarrels with their Bishop, or their people, except as we lament the disorders of any community. If the existing power of the Prelate is insufficient to exercise the most ordinary discipline, he may with advantage learn of other churches &nbsp; the apostolical and peaceable way to reform. But to ask of a colony which comprehends in its Church Act all forms of discipline, a special and pre-eminent judicature, which even by the remotest possibility might demand the attendance and impose expenses on ...
THE LAST DEFENDER OF PROBATIONISM. T[?] which [?] the colony, [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
THE LAST DEFENDER OF &nbsp; &nbsp; PROBATIONISM. THE moral evils which threaten the colony, through the penal system, impose upon us &nbsp; the duty of once more returning to this subject, and to notice the last appeal in its favour, contained in the last Herald. Of all the reams which have been written, his dissertation stands alone. We assent to the solemn declaration of the writer, that his intentions are pure. Pious ejaculations in a newspaper are uncommon, and in or- dinary business suspicious ; but he who unites the studies of divinity and politics may be expected sometimes to confuse his notes, and thus slip into an article what he intended for a homily. But an editor de- mands the care of friends who receives ridi- cule and contempt with a certain satisfac- tion " as necessary medicine." It is arsenic to a journalist, and he who takes it dies. We cannot, however, excuse a writer who, under a show of pity for the prisoners, inti- mates his doubt of pub...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. HEBREW LIBRARY.—We are happy to find that a Library in connexion, with the Synagogue, will be formed. A number of valuable books on He- brew Polity and Literature have already been pre- sented to the Institution. THE BRICKKFIELDS' FACTORY.—We are happy to learn that improvements have commenced in the management of the Brickfields' Depot ; and, that among other things, a separation is to be maintained of the " new " from the " old hands." Visitors there have testified to us lately in favour of the remarkable cleanliness of the establishment, and the improved order of its inmates. Still we are sorry to learn that the abominable habit most abominable truly in women, especially collected in numbers—of smoking, continues to be sanctioned, and the official controul is far from sufficient for the maintenance of that discipline which ought to be enforced in a public establishment, be it a pri- son or a hiring depot. RICHARDSON v. ARMYTAGE.—On Tuesday last their Honors th...
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, AUGUST 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL . &nbsp; TUESDAY, AUGUST 1. Mr. KERMODE having yesterday given notice of a motion for the production of Despatches relative to the Police and Gaol Expenditure and some others, proposed his motion accordingly. Upon this a rather animated conversa- tion, for it was nothing more, ensued. The Lieutenant Governor candidly informed the honorable member (Mr. Kermode), that he could not furnish the information required, inasmuch as he had it not in his power, having received no Despatch from the Se- cretary of State on the subject; he ex- pected, however, such Despatch by the next arrivals. The COLONIAL. SECRETARY wished to know whether it was judicious, politic, or proper in the hon. member to ask for more than he could possibly obtain ? The usual course adopted by his Excellency, a course which his Excellency always intended to adopt, was, to submit all Despatches re- ceived by him to the consideration of his Council ; but he (thc Colonial Secretary) utterly an...
SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Tuesday, August 5, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Tuesday, August 5, 1845. This being the first sitting day of the pre- sent term, there was a tolerable attendance of legal gentlemen. The Solicitor-General, in the case of Richardson v. Armytage, moved for a rule nisi, to show why the Registrar of the Su- preme Court should not be directed to pro- duce the record of the verdict for the de- &nbsp; defendant. The learned gentleman said, that he made his motion, in consequence of a refusal by the Registrar to comply with Mr. Pitcairn's request to do so—a refusal unavoidable by that gentleman without the order of the court. He (the Solicitor-Ge- neral) should be enabled to show that the defendant was entitled to the motion, and for that purpose it would be necessary to revert to the result of the last trial. On that trial, the declaration contained six counts, and upon all these counts, except the third, the jury found a verdict for the defendant. Now, to the third count, there were two pleas,—f...
