?

CORONER'S INQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 15 September 1825

CORONER'S INQUESTS.   On Friday last an Inquest was held on the body of Sarah Newton. The deceased, who is a resident at   Kissing-Point, it appeared, had attended the'Sydney     Market on Thursday last, and had been prevailed upon by some acquaintances to remain in town until a late hour in the day. About seven o'clock in the evening she went to the Market Wharf in order to procure a boat for the purpose of conveying her home. It is supposed, that owing to the darkness of the night, added to the circumstance of her having drank rather freely of spirits in the course of the, day, she approached too near the edge of the Wharf, and had accidentally fallen into the water. The deceased has left a hus- band and children to deplore her loss. The Jury returned a verdict, found drowned.         Another Inquest was held on the same day on the body of Isaac Nicholls, who was found dead (evi...

EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 15 September 1825

EXECUTION. Pat. Malony was executed in pursuance of his sentence on     Monday morning last. After his conviction the Rev. J. J.   THERRY visited him in gaol. His behaviour on leaving the cell on the morning of his execution shewed a mind suited to his awful situation. Having reached the scaffold, he enquired for a lad to whom he was personally known; the boy was brought to him, he shook, hands most affectionately and conjured him to take warning by his untimely end. He then addressed the mul titude around him, nearly as follows: —"' My friends, I have       been justly found guilty of an offence: and I am now about to   expiate that crime by an ignominious death. But I forgive my enemies with my dying breath I pardon them for all the     wrongs with which they have oppressed' me. My religion teaches me to die in peace with all mankind. I die happy. There is, however, one thing which I am anxious to mention; that hard   usage, crue...

FRENCH LAWYERS AND PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 22 September 1825

FRENCH LAWYERS AND PRISONERS. In France the Solicitors-General and tlieirsubsritulns, cTiarged with conducting the prosecutions in criminal affairs, seen), ivith some exceptions, to entertain a singular idea of tlie nature of their functions. The.coiideiniiation of the accused is for them n auujeccoi iriumpn and n title of honour; while an acquittal,. on the contrary, is looked upon as a defeat, and as likely to injure them m the consideration of their superiors. They fear that.the acquittal, may bu altiibutcd to their want of capacity, 'or to the' lukewarniiiess with which they had developed the facts ngainst the prisoner, and the more the prisoner's counsel has.' of talent or celebrity, the more it interests the honour and reputation of the Solicitors-General to obtain a condemnation., Amongst many other proofs of the spirit which actuates this class of tlie public functionaries, take the following curious onil: — Lately the sub stitute of .n Solicitor-General, at a Court of Assiz...

'NEWCASTLE '.WHARP.'&c. Our attention has lately been called to the state of the Government wharf at Newcastle. It is composed of .wood,' and w.as bnilt several years since. In the month 'of 'January last nearly one-half of it was de stroyed by the strain ot a hawser, winch had been fas tened to it, from the ship Princess Charlotte, when she was there loading1 with coals ; so that at presen't, at low water, and ,till half 'tide, and sometimes till high water, the Government launches, wliich carry off the coals to the shipping, will not float with their car g-oes. This isi a great-.incon'vcnience and* detriment to all parties concerned ; and in heavy weather, lrke' that ^which ;has recently been experienced there,- 'a launch dare not approach the wharf ; for it is in's'6 crazy a state, that a common sized boat, with a. load, in her, 'Would, \\\ all, probability, shake it to -pieces.;' ranch more sp.a launch.
