Cnlnitinl Mtm, VICTORIA. The proceedjngs of a meeting called for the purpose of express ing an opinioif adverse to the eight-hours system are reported in the papers. We abridge the report given in the Age of the 25th — ' A public meeting was held in Astley's Amphitheatre, on Thursday evening, for the purpose of considering the eight hours system. It was announced that a lecture on the question would be delivered by T. Loader, Esq., after which the question would be fully discussed. At the hour for opening the proceedings the pit and boxes were welljilled, and there was a goodly number of gentlemen, including the committee of the eight hours movement, on the stage, which was the platform of the evening, but the gallery had comparatively few occupants. The chair was taken by J. P. D'awkner, Esq., M.L.C., who explained the objectB of tho meeting, which was one of a counter kind to those popular meet ings which were recently so numerous and successful. T.

PUBLICATION OF LITIGATIONS. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

PUBLICATION OF LITIGATIONS. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) , Vice is a monster of such fearful mien, That, to be hated, needs but to be seen'; Hut, seen too- oft, familiar with its face, We first endure, then pity, then embrace. Sir — If the above assertion of Pope's be admitted as a general principle, perhaps the reader will also admit that the writer has some grouuds for making the following remarks on what he con siders an abuse of the liberty of the press — a useless expenditure of the time, labour, and printing materials of the press — and what is worse, a defeating of the object for which that and all presses is or ought to be instituted, the elevating of the moral and inte lectnal tone of its readers. The matter I wish to bring before your readers is — the impro priety of publishing in a public paper the several cases which are brought for settlement befor the judiaial courts of a country. In the first place, then, I think the publication of an individuals guilt ac...

THE KIAMA STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

THE KIAMA STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir,— I take the liberty of availing myself of the columns of ;yonr journal, in order to draw the attention of the thinking ? portion of the shippers of our district to the movements of the above Company, with reference to their so-called ' fast and favorite ' steamer, the ' Kiama.' Doubtless, the majority of your readers are aware that several of the most influential shareholders in this steamer are canvassing, or about to canvass, this district, and receive signatures to a certain document, and that those who 6ign such document thereby pledge themselves to support the 'Kiama' exclusivoly, for the ?space of twelve months. This is the movement to which I desire to call the particular attention of the public, believing, as I do, that Buch a mode of proceedure is without precedent, and that it is an infinite discredit, not only to the Company, but even to the individuals more particularly concerned. I think,...

Ashton' s Circus. — This talented company of equestrians have been performing during the past week in Wollongong. On Mon day evening the performance was for the benefit of the roads, but . —whether the roads were so bad that the people were unable to attend, or whether they were so indifferent to this very laudable object as not to give their assistance, we cannot say, — there were not above a score of persons present. On Saturday evening the performances were for the benefit of Mrs. Ashton, and, we are happy to say, the attendance was pretty, good, considering the ?darkness of the night.

THURSDAY, JULY 31. (Before Messrs. Davison and Fairs.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 August 1856

Thursday, July 31. (Before Messrs. Davison and Fairs.) Impounding Act. — John Corrigan v. Peter Kelly. The infor mation charged Peter Kelly with laying excessive damages on six head ot cattle impounded by him, namely five shillings a head to cover damages and trouble of driving. The parties in this 'case are neighbours, and live on the Five Island estate, between whom, soma litigation took place a few weeks ago. Corrigan's evidence went to show that the fence surrounding the wheat paddock whereon the cattle in question had trespassed, had only a sapling fence, and he contended that he (Kelly) was only entitled to com mon damages, namely three pence per head. Mr. Rogers who ap peared for Kelly, argued, that when the nature of the trespass was considered, that the young wheat was not only eaten down but a great deal of it pulled up by the roots, the charge was reasonable. Although the fence was not a hard wood fence; it was the kind as was to be found in tho neighbourhood were the par...

THE KIAMA STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sib — In your. last publication, a writer, delighting in the name of ' Vox .Popu'i,' has made very Blrong remarks upon 'some of the most influential shareholders ' in that company for coming to this end of tho district to solicit support for their steamer the 'Kiama.' Will you permit me, Sir, as one of the very many person3 pledging themselves to support and ship by the ' Kiitnm ' steamer for tho next twelvemonths, to give u few plain reasons for so doing, and that after having thought upon both sides of the question. I perfectly agree with 'Vox Populi' as to tho motive of the directors in that company trying to supplement their Kiamn trade by coming to thio end of the district, for I have no doubt they are learning the lesson that, if they wish to 'fill their coffers,' they must first ' aecommodato tho public,' and that in the best, possible manner. Now the question is, Have they done so, and will the pub...
