FEBRUARY 27. Before His Honor the Chief Justice. STEALING IN A DWELLING. Denis Supple, a native of the colony, and Andrew Pollock were indicted for stealing on the 4th of October last, from the residence of Patrick Carroll of Pepper Creek, a double- barrel gun, three pairs of trowsers, one coat, and a variety of other articles, also three one pound notes, the property of the said Patrick Carroll. Verdict-Guilty. Remanded for sentence. This is the third conviction for the prisoner Supple, whose fingers seem to be in perfect unison with his name. He was defended by Mr. Holroyd. RIOTOUS CONDUCT, George Hall and Frederick Edwards were indicted for unlawfully and riotously assem- bling at the Circular Quay on the 27th Janu- ary last, and also for assaulting John McLerie, Esq., Superintendent of Police.

THE EMPIRE. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1851. TEMPORARY INSANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 February 1851

THE EMPIRE. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1851. TEMPORARY INSANITY. THE established formula in certain cases, where the struggle between " chanty"and, stern fact is too powerful for twelve worthy citizens, is the stereotyped phrase " Tem- porary Insanity." Weadopt tho phrase because of its currencyr for the purpose of exhibiting certain phases of political and social existence which' seem bo us far more illustrative of the fact embodied in it than the majority of those cases to which it is specifically applied. A corresponden*,, writing to us the other day in deprecation of an error into which we had inadver- tently fallen, respecting tho particular re- ligious denomination to which a recently convicted criminal belonged, "charitably, hoped that thö person's conduct was trace- able' fo\À^m$y"~temporary. insanity, of course,/ "WA,give our friend all credit for Úis 'charitable, hope, (but wc confess our- selves1, puzzled-,;to, explain tho nature of that insanity : which prompts a person to pla...

We have re- peatedly appealed to the public, to take fup some decided position in the discussion of the principles of the New Bill which I has SO; largely .occupied the attention of the local, Press, v And it is scarcely" to be . believed tha't sober-minded mon'should, ! ; withVso'mucli positive stubbornness, ne-, gleet a. matter of such general and grave ^concernment, to themselves and their pos- terity;' The citizens of Sydney cannot be : blameless, if'wrong happen, for they have taken no steps, given themselves no ? trouble, to prote...
