MELBOURNE. (from OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT .) December 27. 1 he result of the trial of Messrs. Mount and Morris for their connection with the Carl tragedies will prove to their fellow colonists that Victoria is decidedly opposed to the slave trade and all the fearful horrors attendant thereon. With « judge like Sir William Sta well on the bench it was felt that Mount and Morris stood but little chance of escaping ev'en in the slightest degree, and it was endeavoured to tiave tne trial postponed, out Demg unaoie to show good cause the application was re fused, the trial proceeded, though the jury would have made the sentence as light as pos sible. The Chief Justice has deferred passing sentence until January 2nd, 1873, being un certain he states as to the punishment he can inflict. An official inspection of the Cape Otway district for the purpose of examining into the aspect of the country for coal production is being made. On this point it is not yet de cided as to what we may expect un...

RAILWAY FROM MOAMA TO di-:niliguint. Legislative Assembly, Friday, De cember 20th. On the motion of Mr Hay, the House resolved itself into Committee of the Whole to consider the petition presented to this House on the 21st November from certain inhabitants of Deniliquin in favour of the con . ? /» -I t* ii i struction 01 a railway irom max place to Moama. Mr Hay said it was not without ' considerable diffidence that, at so early a period of his Parliamentary career, he proceeded to speak upon so important a subject. It might seem a trivial subject to some hon. - members, but it was one of great importance to the petitioners. It had agitated tlie mind of the public in and around Deniliquin for the last six years. A petition from the people of Deniliquin and the sur rounding districts was presented to Parliament six years ago. The pe tition was referred to a select com mittee, and a report was returned in favour of the construction of the railway; but that report was rejec ted by a fu...

LOCAL NEWS. Oxley. — Thomas D'Archy, Esq., J.P., gave a grand Christmas entertainment to his friends. His son Michael got thrown from a horse and was supposed to have been seriously injured, but we are heppy to be able to state that he is likely soon to get over the injury. Mr D'Arehv's style is that of the fine old En glish gentleman, and he carries it out with honour and dignity to himself, and to the gratification of all who are favoured by his friendship. Presbyterian Manse. Hay. — We are glad to hear that the Presbyterians of this district are iu earnest about erecting a manse for their minister. The church has now re ceived the finishing touches from the contrac tors (Messrs Witcombe Bros), and is a beauti ful symmetrical building outside and in, on which the eye reposes with the utmost placiditj'. The want of a manse is, however, keenly felt — as the minister, whose district is a large one, entailing much bodily exertion, has no home to return to after his extensive ! rounds;...

Local corporate bodies, acting under the sanction of the Legislature of- the country, and far away from the seat of Government, are exposed to many perils, and, at times, these perils threaten the very existence of local Institutions.

It was so in the early history of the City Council of Sydney, until at length Parliament had to step in, and withdraw the power given to the citizens, because it had been abused by their returning, as Aldermen and Council men, unfit persons. Some of the acts of the early Councillors were the results of ignorance and incapacity, others resulted from sheer wickedness. There, was, then, too much of the old Botany Bay element in the Corporation — the leopard could not change his skin, and the Botany Bay City Parliament exhibited itself as wor...

A Colonial Superintendent in the Stocks.— One of the tilings not generally known (says the Age) is the fact that his Honour Charles Joseph La Trobe, first superinten dent of Victoria, was once a pri soner in the Geelong stocks. It happened thus: — While the bar barous instrument of torture was i being erected in close proximity to the police court at Geelong, Mr La Trobe was making a tour of inspec tion of the Western district, Captain Fyans was at that time police mag istrate, and in fact generalissimo of the town. His Honour and the veteran of tlie Peninsula were re turning from the police court when their attention was directed to the stocks, then in an unfinished state. Captain Fyans dearly loved a prac ^ tical joke, and being determined to have one. even at the expense of bis Honour, said to him, laughingly, ' La Trobe, we cannot decide the proper height to fix the seat so, as to make it the most uncomfortable posture for the occupant ; just get in a moment and give your opmi&a...
