Miscellancous Shipping. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845

Miscellaneous Shipping. The ,Scout, Souvenir, Minerva, Julia and Swan are in the river, wind bound. The souvenir and Scout have horses on board ; but the Swan, besides fourteen horses, has 114 rams, and (according to the shipping list) sixty-four passengers. Mr. Gibbons, we understand, is about to lay down a brig for Captain Gwatkin. The Henty had a severe passage of twenty-three days to Adelaide. Notwithstanding the boisterous weather she encountered, the horses were all landed in excellent condition. This vessel left Adelaide on Saturday last, and arrived on Tuesday. She ir again taking in horses for South Australia. Cont-ary winds detained the Souvenir and the Scout and in consequence they had to procure from town on additional supply of forage for the horses. The report that the Elizabeth Beckham had ar- rived home before the Renown left is without con- firmation, but it was communicated to our re- porter from authority which seemed sufficiently authentic to render further enqui...

TEE 0BSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, AUGUST 15. LIGHTING AND PAVING BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, AUGUST 15. LIGHTING AND PAVING BILL. WE are obliged to omit the detailed report of what passed in the Council on Tuesday, when the second reading of the Lighting and Paving Act came on. Suffice it here, that it was carried by the Governor's cast- ing vote, Captain Swanston having voted for the measure, but all the other unofficial Members against it. Subsequently, by a successful appeal from Mr. Gregson, the dis- cussion of the clauses was adjourned till   to-day.   To-day then, the fate of the Bill will be sealed, and again as before, we counsel   determined opposition to it. In reference to the course pursued by Captain Swans- ton on Tuesday, his honorable, independent character is sufficient to raise him above all imputation of having done otherwise that he conscientiously deemed right. He thought no doubt of the inconveniences of bad streets, &c. ; but we maintain that the prin- ciple which animate...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845

EDUCATION. THE Courier wishes to make us believe that the Board of Education is bent on official suicide, and that it favours the schemers of that illustrious deanery who demand £500 on the security of their past liberality and promised diligence. They have contrived to enrol the names of an enormous juvenile population, not less than two hundred and fifty ! Their ages are not stated, the sex and qualification of the teachers are equally unknown, but they give the round numbers of real and expected pupils, and modestly ask a bounty of £2 per head for those already in existence. The finances of the Board are wholly unequal to accomplish the design contemplated by the Government, yet we are told that such is their generosity that they concur with a band of men by whom their Secretary, their masters, and their whole management has been incessantly calumniated ; that they are willing to be- stow a large proportion of their diminished income to secure a rivalry intended for their destruc...

CONVICT DESPATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845

CONVICT DESPATCH. ABOUT five or six months since, Sir Eard- ley Wilmot, it is stated, received a Despatch from Lord Stanley, giving to his Excellency a discretion in the disposal of a body of prisoners from Pentonvale, but instructing him to be guided by certain principles therein laid down in the exercise of that discretion. The discretion given to his Excellency, as we understand was, whether he should retain in this Colony the Penton- ville prisoners, or allow of their departure to the coast of New Holland, there to form the nucleus of a new settlement, which was to be supplied for some time by the Com- missariat here. The main principle indi- cated in the despatch, to be kept in mind in determining upon either course, was this, that thc faith of the Government guaranteed to these men, that after a certain period passed in Pentonville during which their conduct was satisfactory, they should he sent to a Colony where they would have abundant employment and good wages, should be ke...

THE NEWS PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845

THE NEWSPAPERS.         THE Herald of Tasmania is no more, and though we differed from its views yet we consider its death a general loss. The editor, who entered with undoubting confi- dence on the arena of debate, would have done much towards the settlement of ques- tions of highest importance ; no other par- tisan had half his candour, or delivers the real sentiments of his adherents with half his openness. We have to gather their principles from inueudos, and to elicit their real purposes from a mass of contra- dictions ; but the Herald, starting on the doctrine of divine right, and deducing its claims from the maxims of Oxford, aban- doned the frigid expediency of his com- peers, and left no room for the uncertain- ties of conjecture. Such an opponent it is pleasant to combat ; he relieves us from the dangers of ambush, and the fatigues of pursuit, and never evades a blow by artifice, or escapes it by general declamation. Whet...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, 11TH AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, 11TH AUGUST. Absent :—Messrs. Kermode and O'Connor. The minutes of the last meeting having been read, the Attorney-General moved the order of the day, namely, the second reading of the Extension of the Statute of James' Bill. The Chief Justice said that his Excellency was aware that an Act had sometime since been passed by the Council, to thc effect, that the statute of James was not in force in this colony, which Act   was disallowed by her Majesty ; anxious, however, to have this important question settled, his Honor begged leave to propose a clause, a suspending clause, in fact, to provide that the law, if passed, should not come into operation until her Majesty's pleasure should be known ; and he made this proviso, in order that the Law officers of the Crown at home should have an opportunity of taking the Act under their deliberate consideration. Although the Act had been so long in England, the honorable and learned member was not ...
