Stran 442 - Orders of the House, examined the matters to them referred ; and have agreed to the following REPORT: Your Committee...
Stran xx - You must renounce the habit of telling the colonies that the colonial is a provisional existence. You must allow them to believe that, without severing the bonds which unite them to Great Britain, they may attain the degree of perfection, and of social and political development, to which organized communities of free men have a right to aspire.
Stran 218 - That an humble Address be presented to her Majesty, praying that her Majesty will be graciously pleased to...
Stran 390 - That the foundation of English liberty and of all free government, is, a right in the people to participate in their legislative council...
Stran 399 - Attempts whatever which shall be made against his Person, Crown or Dignity ; and I will do my utmost endeavour to disclose and make known to His Majesty...
Stran 103 - I then stated the names of those who were to die ; and it is a remarkable fact that as I mentioned the names of those men who were to die, they one after another, as their names were pronounced, dropped on their knees, and thanked God that they were to be delivered from that horrible place, whilst the others remained standing mute. It was the most horrible scene I ever witnessed. Those who were condemned to death appeared to be rejoiced.
Stran 105 - Island, and where culprits are as reckless, if not more reckless, committing murder (to use the words of Sir George Arthur) 'in order to enjoy the excitement of being sent up to Hobart Town for trial, though aware that in the ordinary course they must be executed within a fortnight after arrival'.
Stran 449 - Land was about 15,000; the summary convictions amounted to about 15,000; and the number of lashes inflicted was about 50,000. On the other hand, a convict, if ill-treated, may complain of his master; and if he substantiate his charge, the master is deprived of his services; but for this purpose the convict must go before a bench, sometimes 100 miles distant, composed of magistrates, most of whom are owners of convict labour. Legal redress is therefore rarely sought for, and still more rarely obtained...
Stran 362 - The necessity of a senate is not less indicated by the propensity of all single and numerous assemblies to yield to the impulse of sudden and violent passions, and to be seduced by factious leaders into intemperate and pernicious resolutions.
Stran 399 - Majesty, his heirs, and successors, all treasons, and traitorous conspiracies and attempts, which I shall know to be against him, or any of them; and all this I do swear without any equivocation, mental evasion, or secret reservation, and renouncing all pardons and dispensations from any power or person whomsoever to the contrary. So help me God.
