THE OLD MAN'S FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

THE OLD MAN'S FUNERAL. I saw an aged man upon his bier, His hair was thin and white, and on his brow A record of the cares of many a year ;— Cares that were ended and forgotten now. And there was sadness round and faces bowed, And woman's tears fell fast, and children wailed aloud. Then rose another hoary man, and said, In faltering accents to that weeping train, " Why mourn ye that our aged friend is dead ? Ye are not sad to see the gathered grain, Nor when their mellow fruit the orchnrds cast, Nor when the yellow woods shake down the ripen'd mast. " Ye sigh, not when the sun, his course fulfill'd His glorious course, rejoicing earth and sky, In the soft evening when the winds are still'd, Sinks where his islands of refreshment lie, And leaves the smile of his departure, spread O'er the warm-coloured heaven and ruddy moun- tain head. " Why weep ye then for him, who having won The bound of man's appointed years, at last Life's blessings all enjoyed, life's labours done, Serenely to ...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, AUGUST 12. LIGHTING AND PAVING BILL. TO-DAY we understand this Bill comes before the Council, and ugly rumours of defection from the opposition are afloat. We can scarcely credit them however. No member who voted against the Road Act   can consistently vote for this one ; and there must be no skulking away from duty.

THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

THE COUNCIL. THURSDAY'S debate was an exception to the ordinary flntness of the Council's pro- ceedings. The Highway Bill was the question of the day ; but the discussion embraced a variety of topics which had as little immediate relation to that question as either a steam boat or a balloon has to a highway. This excursiveness in debate, which is a common feature in the proceed- ings of our senate, is easily explained. The Council is the only body we have in which questions of popular interest can be periodi- cally noticed ; but the Governor has the exclusive privilege of initiating mensures, and the members are thus obliged to take advantage of any remote connexion between a subject brought before them in a regular manner to drag in any other subjects on which they feel more intensely. But there was an additional reason for a rather ex- cursive debate in reference to the Highway Bill as there would be in respect to any Bill involving a consideration of pounds, shillings and pence, ...

THE ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

THE ESTIMATES. THE Estimates of the Revenue and Expendi- ture for 1846 have reached us too late to enter much into particulars. The Revenue is calculated at £106,332 15s. and the Ex- penditure at £101,638 5s. 4½d. The Governor has given up £400 per annum, and several offices have been done away with ; but upon those continued, the total reduction does not amount to nine hundred pounds. Wec were told of " sacrifices" made by the Government ; but we find that these sacrifices are to be made at the ex- pense of inferior officers and their families, while the over-paid continue to be estimated according to the old extravagant scale. Mr. Charles Abbot, the oldest Government officer we understand in the colony, is turned adrift ; while the Colonial Secretary is to sustain a reduction of 5 per cent, only upon his monstrously absurd salary of twelve hundred pounds ! The public security too, is to be sacrificed by a reduction in the police, among other items, of the magistracies of Hamilton....

INSOLVENT MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

INSOLVENT MAGISTRATES. A CONTEMPORARY, in a very fair spirit,   deprecates the rumoured intention of his Excellency to remove Insolvent Magistrates from the Commission of the Peace. Our sympathy is with the writer, but our judg- ment is against him. A distinction merely honorary is not forfeited by misfortune ; but persons who are entrusted with a share in the administration of justice, hold office for the sake of the public rather than them- selves, and it can scarcely aggravate their distress to withdraw them from duties which require a position they have ceased to main- tain. The office of a Magistrate, usually exercised in his own neighbourhood, must bring him into contact with his creditors, whom he may be tempted to serve, if he cannot pay them. Such unhappy func- tionaries have been seen to quail under the eye of men whose power has solely arisen from their claims. We know that the re- cords of Spartan virtue will furnish instances of indifference to personal con...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. JACKY JACKY.—Mr. Jacky Jacky, without possessing any knowledge as to whom he should meet there, accompanied by his two associates, vi- sited Redlands, on Sunday, when he obliged those resident in the house, among whom was Mr. Philip Stanley Tomlins, our able and esteemed Chief Clerk of Police, to march into that part of the ha- qitation commonly enjoyed by the domestics, while he furnished himself with what good and useful things the house provided. Messrs Jacky Jacky and Company left Redlands without having   sustained any hurt or inconvenience. THE COUNCIL YESTERDAY.—We have onlyroom to state that the discussion in the Council yester- day had mainly reference to the Act of James, which was read a second time, subject to an amend- ment of the Chief Justice, that it be submitted to the Crown Lawyers in England before passing in- to law. Mr. Gregson withdrew his motion for the production of the Education Commissioners' Report on the assurance of the C...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, 7TH AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THURSDAY, 7TH AUGUST. All the members were present except Mr. R. O'Connor. The Council Chamber was thronged with spectators, evidently anxious to witness the proceedings, At two o'clock, the Lieutenant-Governor   having taken his seat, the minutes of the   last sitting were read and confirmed. Mr. GREGSON then presented a petition from         the Licensed Victuallers of this city against any   augmentation of the duty upon licenses. The peti- tion also prayed for an alteration in the Act of Council with reference to other points, which the   publicans considered a grievance. The petition was read and received, and Monday appointed for   a motion that the arguments of counsel (Mr. Mac- dowell) in support of the petition should be heard. Mr. Gregson then presented another petition against the proposed Paving and Lighting Bill.   &a...

ENGLISH. GRANT TO MAYNOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

ENGLISH. GRANT TO MAYNOOTH. SIR ROBERT PEEL, acting upon Mr. O'Connell's proposition that consistency is a   bascally virtue, has opened another vent for Conservative growls at, and for Opposition cheers over, his measures. To him the Grant to Maynooth has at last become a simple arithmetical question. If 3,000,000 of Roman Catholics in Ireland required 8,000/. a year for the education of their priesthood, how much do 7,000,000 of Roman Catholic need. ? 26,000/. a year is the Premier's quotient. " What," exclaims Sir Robest Inglis, as the representative of that peculiar class of religionists which the late Dr. Arnold so happily described as " good Protestants and bad Christians, who talk nonsense and worse than nonsense. and more than nonsense, about Popery, the Beast and Anti-Christ ;" What, decide a matter of principle by the rule of three ?— horrible, shucking, woe, woe !" To this Sir Robert Peel very truly replies—" It is too late now to talk of principle ; fifty ye...

Miscellanea EARTHQUAKE AT HUNTINGDON.—Shortly after nine o'clock on on Wednesday evening, a slight shock of an earthquake was felt in Huntingdon, occasioning much alarm to the inhabitants. In some of the houses the vibration was very perceptible, whilst various articles were moved on the shelves and others thrown down. It was accompanied by a low rumbling underground noise, and every one supposed that something was amiss in the lower parts of their own houses, and hastened to ascertain the cause of the alarm. It lasted about half a minute, and we learn that the same sensation was experienced through the county at the same time. The following particulars have been kindly for- warded to us by the governor of the county gaol :—" Every part of the prison was affected by it ; the floor and table of my office, on which I was then writing, suddenly shook, and at the same time a great noise resembling an explosion was distinctly heard. I instantly proceeded with my officers to examine every...

ENGLISH. COLONIES AND THEIR GOVERNMENT. [From the Atlas, April 12.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845

ENGLISH.   COLONIES AND THEIR GOVERNMENT. [From the Atlas, April 12.] THE conviction that our present system of co- lonial government is insufficient for the end of all government, the advancement and prosperity of the governed, and is unworthy of a country whose dependencies have never been rivalled in extent, in variety, in pro- ductiveness, and in number, and whose mis- sion seems to be the subjection of the utter- most parts of the earth to civilization under the Anglo-Saxon dominion-this conviction yearly grows deeper and deeper, and has, if we do not mistake the signs of the times, reached that state in which informed public opinion requires a remedy. The trouble our colonies have ocasionally given us, the cost they appear to impose upon us, and, above either, the obstructions their supposed commercial interests have raised to the adoption of free trade with foreign countries, have indeed disposed an intelligent, though a small, class of thinkers to cut the Gordia...
