SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 November 1835

SUPREME COURT. 'AT the close of the late 'Session of the Supreme Court': on: the .18th.instant, His Ho'nour; Judge Burton delivered a long and able address to the Jury before dismissing them, which-we-regr~et not h?ving in our power .to'give, noiperson belonging to our establishmentý having been, present. We regret this the more, as we perceive that our old acquaintance, Mr., John Doe, has borrowed on this occasion, the pen of his friend M.Milk-and Water, of The Australian,'andi smarting. with the recollection of the bright vista of fees snatched. from his eager: gaze by thle division ofthe bar, he hiis endeavoured to satiate his vengeance on him whomin- Icoinceives to have been thle getter up of that measure.

TE :next part of the law, of marriage that re quires revisr~. is that which,relates to the celebration, of the ceremony, or, the manner of giving legal effect to the contyact.; This embraces of course the question? of the marriages of the great body of dissenters,,whoin. nothing has yet been done to relieve from the neces sity of having their marriages performed according.to the ritual of the established church, and also whatever. points may still remain undetermined in regard to the. marriages of Jews, .of Quakers, and of Catholics in.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 November 1835

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. SIR—As you said in your last number, under the head of Literature and Science, that "'it is probable, that his (my) narrative will soon draw to a close,"—I beg to acquaint you, that from Mutong, where my sevetth sheet stops, I tra- velled forty miles farther, passing several stations, as far as Kuma. Then I plunged into the un- inhabited westerly part of the continent, and penetrated to and ascended—for the first time— the Australian Alps. My second direction was more S.S.W., when I arrived at Pass Britannia, forded the Snowy River, where it is 100 to 150 yards wide, and stayed at the entrance to Western Australia. You say also " this portion of the Doctor's narrative is more interesting than any of the pre- ceding numbers." I am obliged for this your opinion, as I have every reason to believe, that my twentieth nunber will deserve the same epithet which has been bestowed on the present. I am not a diffuse writer, but I have notes sufficient &n...
