At one period of its history smoking was so common that it
was actually practised in church.
Previous to the visit of James I. to the University of
Cambridge, in 1615, the Vice Chancellor issued a notice
to the students, which enjoined that "No graduate, scholer, or
student of this universitie presume to take tobacco in
Saint Maries Church, upon payne of finall expellinge the universitie."
The Rev. Dr. Parr, when perpetual curate of Hatton, Warwickshire,
which living he held from 1783 to 1790, regularly smoked in the
vestry while the congregation were singing long hymns, chosen for
the purpose, immediately before the sermon. The doctor was wont to
exclaim : " My people like long hymns, but I prefer a long pipe."
The Rev. Robert Hall, of Leicester, the well known Baptist minister,
regularly indulged in smoking during the intervals of Divine worship.
Sir Walter Scott, in his " Heart of Midlothian," refers to one
Duncan, of Knockdunder, an important personage, who smoked during the
whole of the sermon, from an iron pipe, tobacco borrowed from other
worshippers. We are told that, "at tbe end of the discourse he knocked
the ashes out of his pipe, replaced it in his sporran, returned the
tobacco pouch to its owner, and joined in the prayer with decency and
The Puritan Fathers, who settled in America, were greatly addicted
to smoking, indeed, the practice became so common that even these
strait-laced observers of time and seasons actually smoked in church.
The custom soon caused very considerable annoyance, as the religious
exercises were greatly disturbed by the clinking of steels and flints
and the clouds of the smoke in church.
Hence, in the year 1669, the colony passed this law :
"It is enacted that any person or persons that shall be
found smoking of tobacco on the Lord's Day, going to or
coming from the meetings, within two miles of the meeting
house, shall pay twelve pence for every such default."
Under this law several persons were actually fined, but
the punishment failed to secure the carrying out of the
arbitrary second portion of the enactment.
The custom of smoking during church service was not confined
to the laity and minor clergy, for it is recorded that an
Archbishop of York was once reproved by the Vicar of St.
Mary's, Nottingham, for attempting to smoke in the church vestry.
The Rev. John Disney, of Swinderly, in Lincolnshire, writing on the
13th of December, 1773, to James Grainger, says :
"The affair happened in St. Mary's Church,
Nottingham, when Archbishop Blackburn was
there on a visitation. The archbishop had ordered
some of the apparitors or other attendants to
bring him pipes and tobacco and some liquor
into the vestry for his refreshment after the
fatigue of confirmation. And this coming to
Mr. Disney's ears, he forbade their being
brought thither, and with a becoming spirit
remonstrated with the archbishop upon the
impropriety of his conduct, at the same time
telling his Grace that his vestry should not be
converted into a smoking-room

ANNUAL PUBLICANS' LICENSING
CITY OF MELBOURNE.
The adjourned meeting of the Licensing
Bench, for considering applications for annual
general publicans' licences, was held on the
3 May 1864 at noon, at the City Court ; Mr. Sturt,
P.M., Chairman, and the Hons. A Fraser and
W. Hull, and Messrs. Cohen, M. Phelan,
Thomas, and Walsh being present.
The meeting having been opened, Mr. Fraser remarked that,
in his opinion, it was desirable that the meeting should
be further adjourned, in view of the bill now before the
Legislature, which, if it passed at all, must
very soon become law.
Mr. Hull wished that, before the proposition
for adjournment was entertained, the
proposer would show in what way any benefit
could accrue to the public from such a step.
Mr. Fraser replied that, as the now act was
an improvement upon the existing law, it was
desirable that the public should have the
benefit of the improvement as soon as possible.
Mr. Sturt.-As the new act is not intended
to be a retrospective measure, it will have no
effect upon the business of the present session
of the Bench. We will go on with the business.
The list of applicants was then called over,
all unopposed licences being granted. The
following remarks are all of a noteworthy
character that transpired. On the application
of George Ashweek, for the Albert Hotel.
Stephen-street, Inspector Hare said it was not
his intention to oppose the granting of the
licence, although the way in which the house
had been conducted was not altogether satis-
factory. The locality of the house prohibited
it from being a very regular one, but some
publicans whose houses were similarly situated kept
their houses better than this one was kept. Mr. Sturt
told the applicant that the unfavourable report would be recorded
against him, and he must take it as a caution to be more careful in future.
A similar character was given of the Olive Branch Hotel, Stephen-street,
kept by Charles Wright ; and a similar caution was given to
the applicant. Alfred Laroome, applicant for
Mac's Hotel, Stephen-street, was also cautioned by the Bench.
The application of Emily Dollimore, for the Prince Patrick Hotel,
Stephen-street, was opposed by Mr. Hare, on the ground that the
applicant was an improper person to hold a licence.
The house had been conducted in a most disgraceful manner,
and was frequented by the lowest characters. However,
his principal ground of objection was against the character
of the applicant. The application, which was supported by Mr. F. Stephen,
was postponed for a week.
Mr. Hare opposed the application made on
behalf of Thomas Newbiggen, for Cooper's Family Hotel, Stephen-street, as
the applicant had quitted the colony heavily in debt. He intended to
take out a summons against him, for abandoning his licensed house without
leave. Mr. Cresswell also appeared to oppose the application, which was
supported by Mr. Miller. It was postponed for a week.
The application of Robert Richardson, for the
Assembly Hotel, Bourke-street, opposed by
Mr. Hare on account of the manner in which
the applicant had conducted his house for the
last few months, was also postponed for a
week. On the application of Frederick
Young, for the Elephant and Castle Hotel,
Little Bourke-street, being called on, Mr. Hare
opposed it, stating the house was not only
habitually frequented by prostitutes, but several
of these characters were, in fact, lodging
there, paying a regular weekly sum for their
board and lodging. These women took men
home with them to this house every night.
Mr. F. Stephen supported the application,
which was postponed for a week.
The applications of Denis Murray and
Thomas Birmingham, for the Harp of Erin
Hotel, Madeline-street; of William Hamey,
for the Nugget Hotel, Bouverie-street; of John
Burke, for the Carpentaria Hotel, Little
Lonsdale-street; of R. Richardson, for the
Seven Stars, Madeline-street; of Edmund
Brennan and James Taggart, for the Mistletoe
Hotel, McKenzie street ; and of John May, for
the Shamrock Hotel, Queen-street, were all
postponed till Tuesday of next week.
An application made by Wm. Tilke, for
the Halfway House, Albert-street, was withdrawn.
One made by Lamech Harlowe, for the Morning Star Hotel, was
opposed by Mr. F. Stephen, on the ground that the applicant's
licence had been cancelled by Mr. Hackett in the District Court
on the previous day. The applicant did not appear to support
his application, which was refused.
An application by James Hennessy, for a
new house called the Stockade Hotel,
situated in Nicholson-street, was postponed
for fourteen days, the house being as yet incomplete.
On the application of Henry Jenkins, for
Harry Jenkins' Hotel, Swanston-street, Mr.
Hare remarked that, without any wish to op-
pose the licence of this house, he must call
the attention of the Bench to an irregularity
connected with it. A portion of the licensed
house was used as an eating-house, and as
such was kept open on Sundays, and lighted
up on Sunday evenings. In fact, this was a
convenience to the public; but other publicans
complained that the applicant, by devoting
part of his house to the purposes of an
eating house, was tolerated in keeping his
house open when they had to keep theirs
closed. Mr. Hare made similar remarks
on the application of Nelson Leech, for the
Melbourne Cafe, and of G. Nissen, for the
Temple of Pomona. The Bench told each of
the applicants that this proceeding was contrary
to the rules under which their licences
were granted, and that by a continuance of
it they would render themselves liable to prosecution.

Land Grants for 1820
THE name "Neptune" conjures up for, most people the
image of a, benevolent-looking old personageusually to be
seen depicted on the reverse of certain English coinswhose
main characteristic is the possession of a three-pronged fork
known in- mythology as a trident.
To others the term suggests the most distant of the planets, estimated
to be 2,780 million miles from the sun.
In Australian history, however, "Neptune" is identified with a convict
transport ship, a fine vessel of 792 tons, but a hell-ship if ever there-was
one, whose story, conjointly with that of her fellow transports, the Surprise
and the Scarborough, constituted one of the darkest and grimmest pages
in the establishment of the settlement of Port Jackson.
The tragic drama of the Neptune opens with a prologue, the leading
roles falling to John and Elizabeth Macarthur, with Captain John Gilbert
as the arch-villain, the chorus consisting of male and female convicts
and soldiers of the newly-raised N.S.W. Corps.
The scene is set, first at Gravesend, where-the ship lay for
a few days', and then at Plymouth. On board were 421 male and 78 female
convicts; two officersCaptain Nepean and Lieutenant Macarthurand
42 soldiers of the Corps, six convict wives, all free women, 13 children, and
a few passengers.
Amongst the crew was the surgeon, D'Arcy Wentworth, who was himself to be
distinguished in our early history and also in the person of his famous
son, William Charles. Just prior to embarkation, on December 9, 1783, he
had stood his trial at the Old Bailey Sessions for highway robbery, and
been acquitted on this and three later Indictments.
THE casus belli between Macarthur and John Gilbert, the captain of
the ship, arose from the former's complaints regarding the location and
fittings of his cabin, and "the stench of the buckets belonging to the
convict women of a morning." Hotter and hotter grew the language: Gilbert
threatened to write to the War Office and have Macarthur and his wife
turned out of the ship; Gilbert gave Macarthur a punch on the breast:
Nepean interfered and patched up the quarrel temporarily. This all happened
On the seven days trip round to Plymouth there was another flare-up.
Macarthur accusing the captain of ungentlemanly conduct towards, himself
and his wife, and calling him publicly on the quarter-deckhe had
a fine capacity for vituperation"a great scoundrel." In retaliation,
Gilbert told Macarthur that he had "settled many a greater man than
him," and that he was to be seen on shore, whereupon Macarthur named
4 o'clock at the Fountain Tavern, Plymouth Docks.
They met a duel was foughtapparently a bloodless one
honour was satisfied, and both parties agreed, to live in harmony thereafter.
The wranglings between Macarthur, Nepean, the officers, and Gilbert, not
only continued, but grew in violence, so that the authorities took action
and superseded Gilbert by Captain Donald Traill, who had formerly been a
Master in the Navy under Nelson.
The change, however, appeared to be much for the worse, so that after a
few weeks of misery on the Neptune, the
Macarthurs could stand the conditions no longer, and exchanged to the
Scarborough. The details still survive in Elizabeth Macarthur's Private
So much for the Prologue. With the appointment of Traill opens the
main action of the tragedy. The ship was so shamefully overcrowded that
200 seamen deserted before she left England. Conceive the sardine-like
packing of the convicts on the orlop, that is the lowest of the three decks.
Within a space 75 feet long, 35 broad and six feet high, were built the
miserable apartments for housing 40 men, in four rows of cabins one-storey
high, one row on each side of the ship; and two rows down the centre.
These cabins were six feet square.
A simple calculation will show that to each convict was allotted about
36 cubic feet of air space, about the capacity of two coffins of ordinary size.
It was not, however, until February 15 1792, when the report of the
Commissioners of the Navy was published that the whole of the sordid details
relating to the treatment of these "unhappy sacrifices to the justice of their
country" was made public.
On the Neptune was Lieutenant John Shapcote, the naval agent, whose
duty it was to see that the convicts received their full rations and the best
possible treatment. Apparently he failed in his duty. The crew, too, was
very disorderly, and "inclined to be riotous" throughout the voyage.
Before the Neptune left London, Shapcote put all the male convicts into
ironshe was not risking an uprising.
Even while in the river many of them died, their bodies being thrown
overboard. When a search was made for concealed weapons nearly a hundred
knives were found, so overboard they too went, with many of the
convicts' personal belongings, though rumour hath it that Traill and his
officers, appropriated everything of value. To make congestion worse, the
ship was crammed with goods, "ventures" as they were called, being taken
out as speculations by officers of the N.S.W. Corps, with the connivance of
Traill and Shapcote.
The whole voyage was one long horror. Shapcote and the ship's officers
kept every man in irons the whole six months of the voyage, many of them
coupled together, though batches of 50 or 60 were allowed on deck for two
hours each per day. The convict women were better off, having, much
to Mrs. Macarthur's disgust, the full range of the quarter deck and the
poop. At night, however, the ship's company invaded the rooms of the
women, whom they carried off to their own quarters.
DEATH soon began to take its toll.
The supply of water, was very limited, washing facilities non-existent.
An outbreak of scurvy and "a violent epidemical fever" killed scores of the
poor unfortunates, some of whom actually died in irons. Sometimes the
deaths were concealed until the stench of the corpses revealed their
presence to the surgeon. By such concealment, the survivors were enabled
to draw and share the rations of the deceased.
Sometimes a living man was discovered chained to a putrefying corpse.
There were 46 deaths on the Neptune before arrival at Cape Town.
Captain Hill, who came out on the Surprise, complained bitterly of the
treatment of the convicts., "The slave trade." he said, "is merciful,
compared with what I have seen in this fleet."
As the contractors, and thc captain of the Neptune were being paid 17/7/6
per head, not for the number of convicts landed, but for the number
shipped, the greater the number of deaths the fewer were the mouths to
feed and the higher the total profit.
Captain Traill, of the Neptune, appears to have been a first-class rogue
and an inhuman monster. On his return to England three of his
quartermasters and seven others of his crew lodged a formal complaint
before Alderman Clark at the Guildhall, that during the voyage he and
William Elrington, the chief mate, had cut down the convicts' water to
half a-pint-a day: that 171,(the official number is 158) died on the
voyage; that many of them were so starved that they had been seen to
take the chews of tobacco from the mouths of corpses; that men stole
and ate the hogs' swill; that on arrival at Botany Bay the captain, and
mate ransacked the convicts' boxes for anything saleable, opened a
warehouse, and disposed of the goods at a high profit;
that the ships swarmed with vermin. To these and other charges the
contractors. Camden, Calvert, and King, replied seriatim, publishing also
Traill's defence, which is not convincing. According to a letter from one
Thomas Evans to Under-secretary King. Traill and Elrington were next
charged before Alderman Boydell with the murder of Andrew Anderson, sixth
mate of the Neptune, Jno. Joseph, the cook, and an unnamed convict. Traill,
however, vanished into smoke, and the case did not come to trial. I cannot
find any details of the allegations beyond the bare affidavit in the
records, though Governor Phillip himself stated that "an enquiry into the
conduct, of the master of the Neptune
will, I make no doubt, have a good
effect. . . . for the convicts were certainly very ill-treated."
AT Cape Town further disorders occurred, it being alleged that a
certain Dutch captain and a Major Delisle came on board, ostensibly
to visit Captain Nepean, but in reality, "on account of the female convicts."
Shortly after leaving the Cape, a female convict, "who had constantly,
attended Lieutenant Shapcote"whatever that phrase may implyone morning
between three and four o'clock, came and informed the chief mate that the
agent, was dead. This "untimely death" was never investigated, for as
Traill asserted that the body was very offensive it was cast overboard that,
very morning; To say the least, the circumstances were all very suspicious.
By the time the Neptune reached Sydney 147 men and ll women convicts had died;
another 269 were placed in hospital. "The Governor," wrote one-correspondent,
"was very angry', and scolded the captains a great deal, and I heard
intended to write to London-about it, for I heard him say it was murdering them."
We possess several eye-witnesses' accounts of the landing of this mass
of human misery from the three transports.
The Rev. Richard Johnson, who went aboard one of them, he couldn't face up to
the Neptune, said he found men lying "some half and others nearly quite
naked, without bed or bedding, unable to help themselves"; the stench was
intolerable, dead bodies had been thrown into the
harbour, had drifted ashore, and were lying naked on the rocks; "some
creeped on hands and knees." Some were carried ashore on the backs of
others; "their heads, bodies, clothes, blankets, all full of lice";
within three weeks he had buried "not less than eighty-six."
And so the terrible tale, substantiated to the last detail
by dependable witnesses, draws to its conclusion, and the curtain drops.
Though many months later. Mr.Secretary Dundas informed the
Governor that he had "thoroughly investigated" and "taken the necessary
steps to bring forward the conduct of the parties concerned in the
treatment of the convicts on board the Neptune." no active measures to
sheet home the crime ever took place.
