THE CASE OF THOMAS MOORE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 20 May 1857

THE CASK OF THOMAS MOORE. '.The Sittings of. the late Court of Quarter Sessions were . unusually protracted. The -Cak-mler was , not particularly heavy ; but there was an entirely ? new easio f officials, and it could hardly be ex-. .pected that they would get .through the per-: tormance with the case .and .rapidity .of old as ? sociates. Mr. Collaghan, late Prosecutor, occupied ;the chair, while Mr, Dowling, formerly P.M. of Sydney, (who, by the'byc, is the very prototype .of the good old Sir James) ..performed the func tions /of Crown Prosecutor ; Mr. Pring, ' of -Counsel,' did not appenr, his-place -being occu pied by Messrs. 'Dalley. and Wmdeyer,' Who then made their ' first appearance ' at the Maitland .Sessions. The .case in which .the public intorest waB .chiefly centered was that of William Jlamsny. It appeared that immediately the case was closed, eleven of the jurors were prepared with a verdict, one only being dissentient ; but being thus com pelled to deliberate, they re...

THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 20 May 1857

THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. A strange subject for a lender, tho reader may remark, ond yet, at tlio .present time, we know of1 nothing more interesting .or , important to us in a local point of ? view. The weather is getting past a joke. .It will no longer be content with a local paragraph, its legitimate place, but is determined to push itself into a prominent position. The weather is- indisputably tho loading lopiudf {he day, and as such deserves .a leading article. Water, not the least powerful of the four elements, is .apparently bent upon again tosserting its power, lest wo-should become oblivious of its ancient renown. That much talked of myth,- '-the oldest inhabitant,' has never experienced such a season for raiu aa this has been. The customary saluta tion, ' it's a fine day/' has been so little used of late, that if there is not a speody change in the weather, we shall forget it altogether. -It would be taken as an insult, among farmers at least, were one to address his neig...
