Death of the Sydney Free Press. That invaluable privilege, the Liberty of the Press, the bil thrigbt of free Englishmen, was, strangled this morning about 7 o'clock, by the publication in the Official Journal, The Sydney Gazette, of an Act lately passed by our close Legislative Council of fifteen, chiefly Civil Officers, in which the People have no voice., This paper will be put into full mourning on Saturday next, on which day all political dis ' cussion, save in English politics, will cease.-Sydney Moni- tor, Feb. 13.. v i &lt; sffsT^**#*sf I
Insolvents. [FROM THE SYDNEY GAZETTE, FEB. 9.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 February 1830
.- Insolvents; [FROlli THE'SYDNEY GAZETTE, FEB. 9.1 , The Chief Justice;of Van Diemen'» Land, has differed from the opinions of the judges' in this Colony, relative to the power ofthe Supreme (Jourt ¡to go on and per/ect cases of in- solvency, which had been commenced unde> the provisions of the'repealed Tiew Soufh"Wales Act of Parliament. ,i The ßü preme Court here has decided that it has such ajpower ; but Chief Justice PEDDER considers that he is bound by the existing Act of Parliament, which contains no clause in favour of insolvents.' It is almost presumptuous in unlearned per- sons to give an, opinion on,a point, upon which the highest le- gal authorities in each of the Colonies have differed ; but it i certainly does appear reasonable that the Court should have ,the power of perfecting ¡ proceedings commenced under a re- pealed Act ; otherwise the existing Act would have, in some measure, a retrospective, or ex post facto operation. , We will I suppose the ease of an insol...
Joseph Bonaparte. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 February 1830
Joseph Bonaparte. This ex-monarch, who now leads a philosophic life on the Banks of the Delaware, not far from Boston Town, was lately visited by Sir R. Ker Porter, on his way from South America, by the United States to Europe. The ci-devant king received with great hospitality the English traveller, who found him living in a commodious and even splendid dwelling-house, con- structed out of a large suite of stables, which had formerly, &nbsp; been appended to a magnificent mansion, represented as quite a palace, which had been burnt down a short time before. Many fine pictures, and other valuable property, were con- sumed; but enough remained, saved trom the fire, to furnish the present residence in a noble manner with some of the best works of the Spanish and Flemish masters. One of the saloons is particularly dedicated to sculpture portraits of the Bona- parte family ; and Sir R K. Porter, in speaking of the collec- tion, describes the bust of Charles Bonaparte, the father...

Farewell Address. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 February 1830
Farewell Address. The period, when ice are constrained to say farewell to the Public, which has for fifteen years supported us in our labours, has «' length arrived. We have anticipated this event ever since the close of the last year. Our Readers will recollect w¿ then announced the completion of our wishes, and intimated our 'determination of exchanging the busy scenes of public life for domestic peace and ¡stirement.

Bevan, the Runaway« , ' [FROM OUR LAUNCESSON CORRESPONDENT,.FEB. 22.] &nbsp; &nbsp; Bevan, the notorious runaway, for the apprehension of whom great rewards have been offered for the last two years! has been shot. It appears, that a man absconded from the Chain Gang for this purpose ; that Bevan,Britton', and him- self were a little distance from the road near the Sand-hill, on Sunday evening, when they observed young Mr. THOMAS, (the Sub-Treasurer), and another Gentleman riding towards the town , that it was agreed that Britton should go up to them, and (if he found them unarmed, that be should rob them, but if armed he was to'make a signal to that effect. Upon'Brittons leaving them, Bevan laid down bis double barrelled gun to strike a light ; whilst so'doing, the man who had been watching an opportunity, placed himself between the gun and Bevan, and ordered, him to'march before him' to Waddells, threatening to shoot him through through the head if he made any resis...

GOVERNMENT NOTICES. IT is with concern quite inexpressible, that the Lieutenant Governor continues to receive statements of the atrocities committed by the Aboriginal Natives. The moderation however with which a mob of Natives have in one instance lately'conducted them'selves in the neighbour- hood of Bothwell, affords ground to hope that the way to a conciliation may be opening, His Excellency therefore most &nbsp; anxiously wishes promptly to promote 'this desired end, and as it is evident from the hostile spirit of the Natives, and-from the cunning which seems common to all savages, that they are not to be approached, even with a view to reconciliation, with- out some personal danger, the Lieutenant Governor is pre- pared to offer a handsome reward to anv individual who shall effect a successful intercourse with any tribe, and if the indi- vidual be a convict he shall receive an immediate pardon. The Lieutenant Governor hopes that every Colonist will not only afford to an...

Executions. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 February 1830
&nbsp; &nbsp; Executions. John Oxley, for the horrible murder of Susan Corfield, of &nbsp; &nbsp; which we gave some particulars in our last, was tried on Monday, and found guilty. He was desirous to plead to that effect, but the Judge humanely recommended him to re- consider the plea, and stand his trial. The evidence being of the clearest nature, he was found guilty, and sentenced to be hung on Wednesday morning, when the sentence was carried into effect accordingly,and witnessed by an unusual number of spectators. The unhappy man previously to his execution, &nbsp; confessed that it was the intention of the deceased and &nbsp; himself to murder Mr. Reid the same evening, and that they had sharpened the razor for that purpose but some words arising between them, (the woman being much inebriated), whilst he had the razor in his hand, he suddenly perpetrated the act for which he was about to suffer.

Black Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 February 1830
Black Natives. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MR. EDlTOR,—Your desire for information respecting the Aborigines has induced me to state what I conceive to be a proper view of the matter. In our neighbourhood every day &nbsp; affords some proof of their determination to destroy, and their declaration to war with the whites. Whenever an op- portunity presents itself they have invaded our district in almost almost every direction, during the last eight months, with con- siderable success as respects their hostile attacks, particularly in taking the lives of several individuals, and in having ac- complished the ruin of whole families. It appears that the only use the native hunting parties can be of in this service, (if their number were sufficiently augmented), is to keep a vigilant watch, and chase after the Natives, when once the party have fallen in with the track of their retreat, and the pursuing party should harass and follow them well up, and...
Adroitness of the Arab Thieves. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 March 1830
, Adroitness of the Arab Thieves. Tbe following story is given by M- de Bussiere, as an ii lustraion of the adroitness and audacity of the Araba in some of their thefts :-An Arab introduced himself, by creeping on all fours, like a quadruped, into a tent in which one of the Beys'was reposing, carrying off his clothes1 and arms, with . ,»hieb he attired himself. The robber quitted'tile tent very early in the morning, and assuming the manner and haughty f carriage of the chief, whom he bad left fast asleep, so im t posed upon the-attendants by his appearance, that they led ., forth their master's horse, which the Arab mounted and rode off without creating suspicion. An hour afterwards the ser-, ( i vants were thuitderslruck at hearing the. voice of tho Bey, proceeding from the tent, calling for assistance. The latter was still more astonished than his servants ; the boldness and adroitness of the^hief appeared to him totally incompr«hen«i i ble. After several weeks spent in fruitless ...
Damages and Costs. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 5 March 1830
Damages and Costs. In au action for false imprisonment tried on Tuesday, September 8, at Lancaster Assizes, before Mr. Justice Lia TLFDAI.E, the jury, belooe returning their \erdict, thought it necessary to ask his Lordship what damages would carry costs? to which Mr. Justice Littledale replied, "Gentlemen, the law will carry the costs, if you will settle the damages." We know the principle on which this rule is laid down, namel}, that a jury is sworn to try a particular issue without any regard to ulterior consequences. lu criminal jurisprudence this may be very proper, because the quantum of punishment is vested in the Crown, of which the Court is the commis- sioned organ ; but in civil cases the power of the Court 'is limited to the interpretation of merely legal points, and the jury are entrusted ' with the great prerogative of doing justice between the parties to tbe record. It often happens, par- ticularly in actions for libel, that the plaintiff-though entitled to a'verdict-a...
