PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 October 1850

PORT PHILLIP. PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE TO PRISONERS AT THE POLICE OFFICE ACCUSED OF   FELONY.—His Worship the Mayor on Monday intimated from the bench, that he would abolish the practice of allowing pro- fessional assistance to persons accused   before that court of felony; and in two     cases of this class that came on for hearing, refused to permit Mr. F. Stephen and Mr. Sandwell either to address the court or       cross-examine the witnesses for the prose- cution. All the professional gentlemen present were considerably nonplussed and     evidently much disconcerted at this un- expected announcement, but Mr. F. Ste-   phen plucked up sufficient courage to ven- ture on asking what precise rule in the matter would be adopted, as it was of im- portance that the profession should know whether it was intended to circumscribe their privileges, because in th...

Miscellaneous extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 12 October 1850

miscellaneous Extracts. Anecdote of the Late Duke of Kent. —At Kew Palace (so the good old bishop told the story) there was a time-piece highly prized by George the Third : it was a clumsy affair ; there was nothing particular in its _; construction , or ingenious , about its movement.. The only attraction it possessed arose from its historical associations. It had belonged, if my memory rightly serves me, to the youthful Duke of Gloucester, son of Queen Anne. One morning the pedestal of this relic was found vacant, and the time-piece itself .lying on the ground a wreck. It had been battered by some heavy instrument, and lay shivered in fragments. Repair was hopeless. The dial was damaged irreparably. The king's displeasure was not light ; and immediate enquiries were instituted. They issued in no satisfactory result : the culprit could not even be guessed at ; no one had witnessed the disaster ; no one could explain its occurrence. After many hours had elapsed, by mere chance a que...
