MABYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 23 February 1864

MARYBOROUGH. (From the M. Chronicle, February II.) Oa Friday 1 ist Mr. Hirst took bis seat for the first time as Police Magistrate for Mary borough. Since bis assumption of office, an nousual number of cases have been adjudi cated upon by him, some of them most im portant ones ; and his manner of procedure convinces all that in Mr. Hirst we have for onr chief magistrate a tnorongo lawyer, an impartial judge, a mail of business habits, and a gentleman. That Mr. Hirst will alwavs please plaintiff and defendant, com plainant and prisoner, is not to ba expected of hnman nature. The office of a police magistrate requires no little tact and good sense wliun exercised in these small com munities. We have no fear, however, bat that BIr. Hirst will be the man for tbe occa sion. He may occasionally, in the consci entious discharge of liis functions, become unpopular; hutEnglislimen havelearnedevcr to look npon tbeir judges with veneration, and in tlie long ran an npright judge is sure to be h...
