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.

DisastersThe last three weeks have been singularly prolific in melancholy disasters and sudden deaths, as will be seen by the following list of inquests taken before Aaron Hogsett, Esq., the Coroner for this district.

She found him awake, and in answer to an inquiry he said that he felt better. On entering the room in the morning, he was found a corpse, having no doubt died in an apoplectic fit, which was, in fact, the verdict of the Jury.

CasualtyWe regret to learn, that yesterday morning, as Mr. ROBERT PACK, second son of ROBERT PACK, Esq., was fowling on the Barrens between Carbonear and Trinity Bay, in company with Mr. Bethune of H. M. Customs, and while resting for a short time (having been in during the previous night) upon observing so the birds. He briefly drew his gun towards him by the nozzle, when a twig caught the trigger end and it suddenly went off: the contents entered his arm above the wrist, lacerating the blood vessels and muscles along the extent of the arm and laying bare the bone above the elbow. Mr. Bethune quickly repaired to Carbonear for assistance and a suitable vehicle was speedily sent in and conveyed Mr. PACK to his father's residence. Upon surgical aid being obtained it was found necessary to amputate the arm at the shoulder joint.This painful operation was performed by Dr. Dow, of this town, assisted by Dr. Walsh, of Carbonear, and Dr. Allen of Brigus, and borne by the unfortunate young gentleman with much firmness and fortitude.

BoatwreckMelancholy Boatwreck and Loss of Life - We regret to state that on the night of Wednesday last, a boat (that would carry about 100 qtls. round fish) belonging to Mr. ROBERT ANDREWS, of Port-de-Grave, and bound hence for that place with supplies, was totally lost, having struck on the Biscayan rock near Cape St. Francis, and shortly after gone down. There were seven persons in the boat, four of whom succeeded in getting upon the rock, leaving the son of Mr. ANDREWS, his daughter (a girl of 12 or 13 years of age) and one of the crew on board. Sail was then made upon the boat, but she had not proceeded far when she was seen to founder, and the cries of the unhappy sufferers were distinctly heard by the surviving parties. It was a moonlight night, and there being only a moderate breeze, the accident is likely to have arisen from the man at the helm not having kept a sufficient look-out, or more probably having fallen asleep. However it happened, it is a melancholy disaster, and should operate as a warning to others of the necessity of precaution and vigilance upon occasions where we apprehend too much confidence, if not, carelessness, commonly prevails.

About mid-way, however, they were overtaken by the late violent storm and THOMAS, the younger of the two, became exhausted and eventually unable to proceed. Finding his brother in this most dreadful situation and all but worn out himself, Mr. JOHN EDENS endeavoured to find his way to Toad's Cove: from his distracted state of mind, however, he lost his road, and did not arrive till 4 o'clock on the following morning, after wandering about for nearly ten hours of inclement weather. When he succeeded in making his sad tale known, the kind hearted people of Toad's Cove, in a body, instantly proceeded to the assistance of the unfortunate young man; but alas! As was anticipated, too late for succour! The body was found and conveyed to Toad's Cove - and from thence here. Mr. JOHN EDENS lies in a dangerous state at Bay Bulls. The funeral of the deceased Mr. THOMAS EDENS took place on Monday
and was attended by the members of the Newfoundland Natives Society, and a large number of other persons.

CasualtyIn the list of casualities in the recent engagement of our armies in the East, we observe the name of Lieut. ROBERT LAW, Her Majesty's 31st Foot, mentioned among the "severely wounded" in the last terrible battle of Sobraon, on the 10th February. This young gentleman is the eldest son of Lieut Col. LAW, commanding Royal Newfoundland Companies, and one whom we remember to have been a mere boy by his father's side, a few years ago. He has already at the age of three and twenty earned very distinguished laurels, having fought in the four tremendous conflicts with the Sikhs, and born the evidence of severe wounds to attest his valour, in the last and most fearful struggle. We sincerely trust that the next intelligence will be such as to relieve the anxious apprehensions his friends must naturally feel under the present circumstances, though with their fears may well be mingled a sensation of no ordinary pride at the honors so early won, of their young and gallant relative.

Coroner's InquestOn Saturday evening last, before Aaron Hogsett, Esq, and a Coroner's Jury, upon view of the body of MICHAEL MORRISSEY, of St. John's, fisherman. It appeared by the evidence of Doctors Renouf, Kielley, Shea and Martin, who had all attended the deceased before his death & almost immediately after two or three wounds had been inflicted upon him by a person named TIMOTHY RYAN, with a hatchet, that they were of such a nature as to cause death, particularly that on the right side of the head which fractured the scull - and which fracture appeared to be produced by the blow of a blunt and heavy instrument, such as the pole of a hatchet. The other wounds appeared to be inflicted with a sharp instrument - most likely with the edge of the hatchet made use of. The whole evidence before the Jury being so clear as to the malice and deliberation of the ACT, they did not long hesitate in finding a verdict of "Wilful Murder" against TIMOTHY RYAN - who was committed for trial accordingly.

Coroner's InquestAt an early hour yesterday morning before Aaron Hogsett, Esq., and a Coroner's Jury on the wharf of Messrs. Baine, Johnston & Co., merchants, upon view of the body of JOHN MURPHY, late of Placentia, fisherman. It appeared upon the evidence of JOHN SAMPSON, that the deceased and himself had been drinking on shore, but very little. - That a little after gun-fire, witness went into the fore-cuddy of the boat laying at the head of the wharf of Messrs. Baine, Johnston & Co. The deceased accompanied him with a candle, a lanthorn to his bed in the fore-cuddy, then went oaft to the after-cuddy, believes, to bed. Witness was called sometime in the night when the afterpart of the boat was all on fire. There was only fish in the after cabin. The deceased MURPHY was in the habit of sticking lighted candles against the boards of the cuddy. (The Coroner remarked he would make the most public use of this as a warning not only for the observation of life; but as two fine vessels at the same wharf, as well as the premises, and many other habitations besides might have been consumed.) PATRICK KOUGH, late of Bonavista Bay, sworn - he saw the fire first in the morning when turning through the narrows. Has no doubt that the fire was caused by negligence and that the deceased came to his death in consequence. Verdict of Jury accordingly.
