AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 17 October 1829

AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF SYDNEY?. The address of the Agricultural Society of Sydney     has been published. Sir John Jamieson mentions a successful plan he has adopted for burning off the stumps of trees. A considerable number of logs were rolled close round round the stumps, and pieces placed over them so as he calls it to be cross burned. In the course of four or five days the stumps were burned most perfectly without the use of a cross cut saw, spade or axe. We regret Sir John has not been more particular in his description, for as far as we can ga- ther from his account, there is nothing different in it from the common method which is very laborious and very dangerous, owing to the stumps being burned perhaps within an inch or two of the surface and often unawares stopping or breaking the plough before they are seen. He says, the best time for felling trees in order to burn out the stump afterwards is when the sap is up, when the stump is exhausted of a ...

CURIOUS VERDICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 24 October 1829

CURIOUS VERDICT. At the last Oxford assizes, a man was found guilty of stealing a pig, but Mr. Justice Park said to the, jury that he felt himself placed in a very distressed si- tuation, not from any feeling he entertained of the in-. nocence of the prisoner, but on account of the infamy of the chief witness who was on accomplice. He therefore called upon them to reconsider their ver- dict. They did so, and next found the man not guilty. There is Something so curious "and preposterous in this proceeding that I cannot help commenting on it. That a judge and jury should be alike convinced of the guilt of a man and should return him innocent, is so contradictory that it almost amounts in my estim- ation to a direct falsehood or even perjury, for they so- lemnly declare upon oath that which they do not be- lieve. No judge or jury on earth should ever induce an upright man to aver that which his conscience tell, him is not the case. Whatever the letter of the En- glish law may be, it is...

PIRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 24 October 1829

PIRACY. A horrible case of piracy was perpetrated on the 22d of Febraury last, at the mouth of the Chesapeake. The American brig Atlantic had sailed from Philadel- phia for Ntvv York, but had scarcely reached point Yaco when she was boarded and brought to by a piratical schooner, about 60 or 70 tons burden, full of men armed with cutlasses, and having on board 2 large guns. They ordered the Captain and 2 of his men into the boat, and sent him along side their schoon- er, which he had no sooner reached than they took out his 2 men, and a number of the pirates jumped   on board and immediately returned to the brig. They then ordered all hands into the fore peak except th       Captain. Alfred Hill, the second mate, the only on of the crew who has survived to relate the melanchol story, stated on oath that after shutting the «kutti over, the pirates waited about ten minutes and then ordered all hands on deck again. At that time he (th...

DREADFUL NEWS. The John Bull of the 26th April, has a humourous   parody on the alarming letters from Lisbon, the so counts contained in which he pretends are greatly ex- aggerated. The following are some of the passages. -London, April -23, 1829. Every thing here is in the same dreadful state as usual. The Houses of Parliament have adjourned, and during the whole of the last week the public theatres were closed. Arrests and executions increase ; a female of the name of Hibner was strangled by the common executioner on Monday, in the open street before the windows of the Court where she had been sentenced. Three other victims were put to death only two days since in Southwark ; such was the popular excitement that it was found necessary to erect the instrument of death on the top of the prison, where the unhappy sufferers had been confined, lest the people should rescue them and proceed to acts of violence. You have no doubt, heard of the new system of police - a spirit...
