COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 July 1861

COLONIAL EXTilAUrs. An Amiable Coutle.— Eliza Arnold and Mary Anne Duross, two ynung ladies, it must be admitted, possessing vugue and undefined principles of mo rality, were cunrged on Thursday morning by the police constables, with fighting in the public streets at the early hour of half. piist one in the morning. The quarrel, so fur as we have since ascertained, arose out of the question as to which of the two had priority of right to the affections of a late arrival from the bush. ' Decide it between yourselves, my dears,' said the wearer of a cabbage-tree hat and a blue serge shirt. ' The one that wins has my es teem and approbation,' whereupon the two set to work. 'Lizzy,' as the young lady ia generally called by her intimates, was not long in possess ing herself of Mary Anne's bonnet, the upper part of her dress, a portion of her skirt, and a few yards of her hair. In return for which Mary Anne obtained one of her antagonists front teeth, a bite out of the back of her neck, a...

Campbell and Sadleir, to explain their views to the electorate. The Court house was crowded shortly after the time appointed, viz, 7 o'clock. Mr. A. H. Jacob, having been called to the chair, intro duced Mr. Campbell, who at first suggested, as Lieutenant Sadleir was his senior, &c, that that gentleman should ad dress the meeting first, which was politely refused, on the ground that Mr. Campbell was first in the Held. Mr. Campbell then expounded his views, at the conclu sion of which he was cheered. A few questions having been put to that gentleman, and answered— Lieutenant Sadleir rose, and was received with deafening cheers. After explaining his views, &c, and keeping the meeting in perfect good humour by his caustic and shrewd remarks, h» sat down.

SUMMARY POWER OF JUSTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 July 1861

8CSIMAKY POWER OF JTJSTICES. A judgment was giv on Saturday, in Chambers, upon a case which had been pre viously argued between Mr. Faucett and Mr. Johnson, and which involved a question of considerable importance. It was an appli cation to stay, by prohibition, all proceedings unaer a conviction ot tne applicant before two or more Justices at Shell-harbour, of having obstructed a public highway. The prose cutiou was instituted under a bye-law of the local municipal council. The obstruction was by a fence, and the defence set up was that this fence was on the defendant's own land. The justices nevertheless convicted. That conviction was impeached as being in excess of the magistrate's jurisdiction, inas much as it determined a question of title to land with which the Justices had no power summarily to deal. It was sought to sustain theconvifition nnnn t.liA irrnnml that nn /-. ii /lo- tion of individual title could be raised in refer ence to a public highway. The judge held that the...

ORIGINAL POETRY. A LAY AFTER " DON JUAN." Dedicated (without permission) to the Guards. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 17 July 1861

ORIGINAL POETRY. A LAY AFTER ' DON JUAN.' Dedicated (without permission) to the Guards. ' You've shown a spirit true, For doing as you've done.'— M. E. H. ' God bless the volunteers'— he may— But yet I don't see why lie should ; This is a sentence that most people say, Though to get blessed they never could ; Yet fools and children often pray — Thongh oft their beads are in a bag or hood That God from evil would them aye preserve, And really give them things they don't deserve. To flatter, in a person that is sane, Shows such a one a gentle soul to be. Yet shows the person to be very vain, So vain, that all the world can tee That she does strive with all her might and main, With flattery, the boyish guards to fee. No doubt flie thinks amid the general strife, For such a pud' she will be made a wife. But she's mistaken, for 'tis daub'd on too thick, And of a quality so course, That the palaver will Hot stick j And my opinion is the strongest horse You'd find would very likely kick, A...

The topic of the day is'clearly the election for the Lower Hunter, which comes , off 'on Eriday next, the 19th instant, and we are bound to give some attention to it. We be gin with Mr. Argent, and, however unhand some it may appear, we must find fault with the first sentence of Shis'address. wherein he claims credit for the modest devotion which he exhibited fn retiring from Patrick's Plains in favour of Mr. Harpur. Would he oblige us with a little more'eandour to mix up with this modesty, and so help us to swallow the dose f It may be stupidity on our part, but we cannot see though the trick of a Liberal — as Mr. Argent must be, judging from his address — retiring on an hour's notice from the up-country Liberals to'rtfke room for a gentleman who can hardly' deny that he is the nominee of the Hon. John Robertson, and then coming down, Hat in Hand, to our neighbours at Raymond Terrace. There is no sense in trying to knock down a candidate because he is untried. Mr. Argent will never...
