Description:
The Newfoundlander contained domestic news, court cases, legislative proceedings, poetry and prose, extensive foreign news, shipping and fishing news, public notices and advertisements. Although it had a lively correspondence column, the Newfoundlander refrained from editorial commentary on domestic politics until the 1840's. The Newfoundlander was Liberal and Catholic in its editorial policy and disagreed with the Public Ledger and later, the Express, on many issues. In 1843, it opposed the Colleges Bill which would set up separate denominational educational systems. The paper often expressed concern with the widespread poverty, especially in the outports. The paper was eager for the return of Representative Government and had little patience with the opponents of Responsible Government who it found to be "thoroughly English in their predilections and antipathies" (Apr. 8, 1848). E. D.

Shea, who now controlled the paper, became a member of the Legislature in 1848 and, except for the period from 1869 to 1873, served until his death in 1913. Initially cautious about reciprocal free trade with the United States, by 1856 he felt it would be a remedy to many of the Colony's economic problems. The Newfoundlander was the chief opposition paper during the Hoyles administration but in 1865, Shea was appointed Financial Secretary in the Carter cabinet.

The Newfoundlander had by this time become the principal Confederate newspaper and, with its old rival, the Express, a major opponent of the Charles Fox Bennett administration. The Chronicle, felt to be Bennett's mouthpiece, was the main adversary until 1881 and, after that, the Evening Telegram. Shea became Colonial Secretary in the second Carter administration and enthusiastically supported the railway. The paper opposed the New Party and supported the Whiteway government until it ceased publication at the end of 1884.

It will, however, be some alleviation to the sufferings of her numerous relatives and friends, to learn that she died with perfect and complete resignation to the will of the Divine Providence, having been sensible to the last moment.

InquestOn Wednesday last, an Inquest was held in this town before John Stark, Esq., Coroner, on MARY FANNING, wife of PETER FANNING, baker. At 2 o'clock a most respectable Jury, consisting of 17 in number, Mr. Andrew Drysdale, foreman, assembled at the house of Mr. Robert Lee Whiting, when the investigation proceeded, and continued until half past seven, - a great number of witnesses were examined, after which the jury retun\rned a verdict of "Wilful Murder' against Peter Fanning, the husband of the deceased. Fanning, who had been previously taken into custody upon suspicion, was immediately committed to the gaol at this under the Coroner's Warrant. Considerable noise had been heard in the house of Peter Fanning during Tuesday night and frequent moans, as proceeding from his wife - she was found on the following morning, her head completely beat to a jelly and the body in a state too shocking to be described. The handle of a spade was found in the house, broken to pieces is presumed upon the strongest evidence, and in fact, upon the admission of the prisoner, that he had beaten his wife and effected the sanguinary act. To add to the horrible tragedy, the deceased was pregnant and expected to have been confined in another month. - Conception Bay Mercury, May 3.

DiedAt Buneos Ayres, on the 21st January, Mr. JOHN M'LEA, late of this town, respected and esteemed by all who knew him. - From a private letter we have seen, we abstract the following particulars of this melancholy event:- "He rode out between 7 and 8 o'clock in the evening, by way of recreation, into the suburbs of the city. - On his return, having got as far as the end of one of the streets, two ruffians rushed upon him, stabbed him in several places, rifled his pockets of a few dollars, and being scared, it is thought, in the act of taking his watch, succeeded in making off only with the seals and case. His horse ran away during the outrage, but he was still able, though stunned and weak from loss of bleed, to walk to a neighbouring house, belonging to a countryman and acquaintance. Every assistance was immediately and humanely rendered to him, and though his case evidently appeared to be dangerous one, strong hopes were entertained of a happy issue. Nothing, however, that was done availed, - and every thing was done that skill or friendly assiduity could effect - and that day fortnight he was carried to the grave. - Greenock Advertiser, May 30.

September 12, 1833
MurderA most atrocious and unnatural murder has lately been perpetrated at Port-de-Grave, in Conception Bay. Mr. JOHN SNOW, a respectable planter of that place, having suddenly and mysteriously disappeared enquiry was set on foot, and from certain suspicious circumstances, a servant of SNOW'S named ARTHUR SPRING, and another man of the name of MANDEVILLE, were arrested, but there not being sufficient evidence to criminate them, they were, we understand, released on bail. We learn, however that on Saturday last, SPRING made a voluntary confession, in which he stated that his master had actually been murdered, at the instigation of his own wife, that he had been shot by MANDERVILLE in his (SPRING'S) presence; and that after the deed was accomplished they had attached the body to a grapnel and thrown it into the sea. MANDEVILLE, we understand, on being arrested and examined, admitted part of SPRING'S evidence, but denied having been the actual perpetrator of the crime - alleging that SPRING was the principal. MANDEVILLE and SPRING were brought to this town, and committed to Gaol on Sunday evening. The woman had previously quitted Port-de-Grave, but although an active search has been made for her, she had not, at the time of writing this article, been discovered. SNOW and his wife were the parents of a large family, and had been married about 17 years. The two prisoners underwent a long examination yesterday - the particulars of which have not transpired; but we understand it to have been similar to the former examinations. Whatever may be the cause, it is an evident and lamentable fact that crime has of late years been greatly on the increase in this country. One frightful murder succeeds another with startling rapidity. Burglaries and highway robberies, which were formerly almost unknown here, are also becoming of frequent occurrence. Indeed, never has the Calendar been so heavy, or exhibited so long a catalogue of crimes of the deepest dye, as at present. - There are now about 40 prisoners in the gaol here - no less than 8 on charges of wilful murder.

Supreme CourtOn Friday, the Court was occupied with the trial of TOBIAS MANDEVILLE, ARTHUR SPRING, and CATHERINE SNOW, for the murder of JOHN SNOW, (the husband of the prisoner CATHERINE SNOW) at Port-de-Grave, on the 31st August last. At 11 o'clock at night, the Jury returned with the fatal verdict, "Guilty" against all prisoners - upon whom the Chief Justice immediately pronounced sentence of Death - to be executed on Monday, - CATHERINE SNOW, being pronounced by a Jury of Matrons in an advanced state of pregnancy, has been respited until the next session of the Supreme Court. The awful sentence of the law was executed on MANDEVILLE and SPRING, on Monday last, at the drop erected at the western end of the Court House. The unfortunate men, from the moment of their conviction, resigned themselves wholly to the performance of their religious duties, under the spiritual guidance of the Right Rev. Dr. Fleming, who on this, as on former, melancholy occasion, was unremitting in his attention. His Lordship remained in the cell with the prisoners during the whole of the two nights preceding their execution, and celebrated Mass there on the mornings of Sunday and Monday, and if we may judge by the composure and resignation with which they met their untimely fate, his Lordships' arduous and zealous exertions appeared to be attended with the happiest results. They were accompanied by the Rev. Messrs. Troy and Ward, to the scaffold, from which, after a few minutes spent in prayer, they were consigned to another realm, there we hope to find mercy and pardon. -They were fine young men - MANDEVILLE we believe, 25 years, SPRING, 28 years of age, and wore blue jackets, white trousers, and gloves of the same colour. Both men, we understand, admitted the justice of the sentence which the laws of their country had awarded.

Supreme CourtExecution of CATHERINE SNOW - This unfortunate woman who was convicted at the January Session of the Supreme Court, of being an excessary in the death of her husband at Port-de-Grave, and was at that time respited owing to her being in a state of pregnancy - underwent the fatal sentence of the law, at the Court House drop, on Monday morning last. She was attended for several days previously, by the Rev. Mr. Waldron, who was unceasing and assiduous in affording her the soothing consolation of religion, and preparing her for the last awful moment. About a quarter before 9 o'clock, the Rev. Messrs. Troy, Ward, and Waldron accompanied her from the cell to the scaffold, to which she advanced with a firm step, and met her fate with remarkable composure and firmness. Her body was interred by her friends on the evening of the same day. The Patriot remarks, "During the last few days she was so entirely absorbed in her spiritual preparation for meeting her fate in a Christian spirit, that every worldly thought seemed to have abandoned her. Even her children were forgotten, yet at intervals the latent hope of mercy would steal upon her. "Ah Sir, is there NO hope?" "No, my good ma'am," he replied, "it is my duty to entreat you to lay aside such thoughts, it is only in Heaven your hopes are to rest." On Sunday she appeared quite faint, she had not slept for the last two nights, and hardly tasted a morsel of food. Every delicacy was sought by the philanthropic governor of the gaol to induce her to nourish herself, but her constant exclamation was, "O, what is nourishment to me: God calls upon me to suffer death, that I cannot avoid, but O, let me add as much as possible to my sufferings, that I may try to make that death valuable." On Sunday night she was very faint; a little mulled wine was brought to her, and with much difficulty she was induced to put her lips to it merely to gratify the Rev. Gentleman who attended her. At three in the morning Mass was offered in her cell, and she joined the Priest in offering the Holy Sacrifice with intense fervour. At five came the ceremony of putting on the grave garb. During the process she was hardly able to afford the least assistance; but when it was completed, and she saw herself decked in all the melancholy paraphernalia, of the grave, she uttered a piercing cry, and for some moments, reason seemed to have fled its seat for ever. However, as the fatal hour approached she again became calm, and for a considerable time before her death joined in the prayers of her confessor with heartfelt devotion. She died declaring she was a wretched sinful woman, but as innocent of any participation in the crime for which she was about to suffer as the child unborn, and that she had not even the most distant presentiment, at any time, that her husband would have fallen under the hand of an assassin.
