Does anyone on the list have access to the above database?  I'm trying to get
the source of what is cited in
http://www.clemens-fritz.de/publications/From_Plato_to_Aristotle.pdf as

I *think* it's from an issue of _Hobart Town Gazette_ some time in 1826, as a
follow-up to the 6 May 1826 issue.

If it exists, it should contain the earliest example of the term "mob" used for
a gang of criminals, linked to the Brady Mob, in memory of Matthew Brady,
gentlemanly bushranger, who was hanged that year.

For the moment, I'm completely stumped, so any help would be much appreciated.
