No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849

"! How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable" is the occupation of a writer for the press when there are no novelties, or when events do not advance accompanied with the ex citements which give zest to life, or afford topics for criticism. The nouvelles a la main of any public interest for the last week are either tame, stale, or humiliating. Mr. Lowe's " False Declaration Bill" is likely to become law; although the measure was brought forward upon impulse, and with re ference to a particular case, as alleged by Mr. Hamilton, it cannot be denied that it will " remedy an omission in the existing law." In the name of common sense, in what mode would Mr. Hamilton have laws to originate, if not with reference to cases or a particular case, and upon what motive-principle does he expect the suggestions of legislators to arise from. This gentleman it would appear has yet to learn, that laws applicable to the circumstances and condition of the times are not framed like examination questions a...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, JULY 10. Mr. LOWE presented a petition from a number of carcass butchers, praying that in the Bill now before the House for amending the law relative to the slaughtering of cattle, a clause might be introduced for reducing to one half the fees now taken for the inspection of slaughterhouses. The present charge it was stated,,was 3<1. per head,which had yielded last year a revenue of £300, while the expenses attendant upon such inspection and the collection amounted to but £120. Mr. MUnnAY moved, pursuant to notice, that the Yass School Lands Bill be read a first time. The bill having been read, Mr. Hamilton gave notice of his intention, on Friday next, to move, that the Yass School Lands Bill be referred to the consideration of a Select Committee, to consist of MIr. Cowper, the Auditor-General, Mr. Murray, Mr. Hamilton, and the Attorney-General. Mr. DARVAtL gave notice of. his intention on Tuesday next, to move, that an Address be pre sented ...

Country News. GUNDAGAI. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849

Country News. (FnoM oUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) GUNDAGAI. THE first day of this month, the Reverend Mr Brigstock performed divine service here, to a nu.. omerous and respectable congregation, after which two or three couples were united by him in the bonds of wedlock and a number of children were christened. The reverend gentleman informed his hearers that the Bishop would station a clergyman at this township to perform duty on alternate Sun. days here and at the Tumut, if the inhabitants would guarantee £100 per annum for three years, which we have no doubt will be freely promised. Mr. Surgeon Waugh was thrown from his horse early on Monday morning, opposite the Family Hotel, kept by Mr. Spencer, two dogs having ran out and startled the animal-or if the evidence of a young boy is to be relied on, one dog bit the horse by the hind foot. The landlord was summoned on Wednesday last, and although the dog act is not yet extended to Gundagai and the dogs disowned by the landlord, he was fin...

TUESDAY, JULY 10, 1840. Before W, H. HOVELL, Esq., 1. P. and JAS. CHIS HoL M, Esq., J. P. DRUNKARcDS.-Eliza Wilson, was called three times to answer a charge of drunkenness preferred against her by the Chief Constable. As she did not appear to plead, evidence was taken in support of the charge, and the Bench ordered the bail f(1 is.) to be forfeited. John Crowe, was then charged with a similar of fence. Upon being called on to plead, he went the usual round about way of confessing to the of fence by stating, that on the day mentioned, lie had a sup, a drop, a summut to drink, a few glasses, a little refreshment, a drain with a friend, and such like, but at last admitted that he had more than was absolutely good for him. The Bench considering that this was tantamount to a plea of guilty, fined the defendant in the lowest penalty, namely 5s. and Is. costs. Anne Connollv. a decently attired woman, was charged with a like offence, committed on the Oth inst. The information set forth tha...

THE WAGGA WAGGA BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849

THE WAGGA WAGGA BENCII.   Mr. F. A. Tompson, a Magistrate of the Territory, who performs the duties of Clerk to the Wagga Wagga Bench, has sent a long statement to the Sydney Morning   Herald, professing to be a full, true, ,and particular account of all the circumstances that attended the death of a Chinaman, at Messrs. Walker's station, at Kiamba, which was noticed in this Journal of the 16th ulto. Whatever motive has actuated Mr. Tomp son in the course he has adopted in giving the affair even greater publicity than it had already attained, we must tender him our thanks for having furnished what may be regarded as an authorised foundation for our strictures. It is an universally confess- ed truth, that men have conferred benefits on society by the merest accident, even at the very time when they purposed otherwise; such, we are apt to think, is the case with Mr. Tompson; for our philanthrophy can scarcely give him credit for having purpose- ly clinched ou...

AUSTRALIAN WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 21 July 1849

AUSTRALIAN WOOL. IN the debate upon the resolutions proposed last week to the Legislative Council by Mr. Donaldson, on the subject of steam communication with the mother country, allusion was made by that gentle man to statistics received lately from England, which show the importance of the wool produced in Australia, with reference to the importation of other wools into the markets of the mother country. We deem these statistics, which have since been handed to us, of so much interest, that we publish them in full. These remarklable facts are shown by these state ments First. That in the year 1840, Germany sent to England more than twice as much wool as all the Australian colonies; in 1848, the Australian colo nies sent to England more than twice as much wool as Germany. Second. That Spain, which sent in 1840, 5979 packs, only sent in 1848, 3856 packs, and is there fore nearly driven out of the market. Thirdly, and what is of most interest to us as co lonists, the total import of ...

The steam mill has been well supplied at 3s. a bushel and a shade lower. Owing to the favorable turn in the weather, reasonable ex pectations are entertained for the crops.

To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 21 July 1849

To the'Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Scn,-The inhabitants of your town have good reason to complain of the inefficiency of the police. Every week experiences some robbery or another, but the detections bear no comparison to the offences committed. Few cases tried at Quarter Sessions or the Circuit Court arise out of this cotm munity: and the Judge may perhaps attribute the absence of Goulburn-committed prisoners to the morality of the town and neighbourhood. Would; he could do so with truth! Scarcely an instance. can be quoted in which tile perpetrator of a robbery in our district has been discovered; as for the town. itself, one part is evidently well guarded, if I can judge from appearances; as whenever I have been stoppinj the night in Goulburn, I have invariably seen the police marching backwards and forwards en masse from Gould's public house to Weakley's corner: as for the rest of the town, it is left entirely to the mercy of even the mere novice in the art of thieving.

Sales during the early part of the week were easily effeeted, and remntnerative prices realized ; althoughl only a trifling business is being (lonue retail. Brandy has come forward in considerable quantities, and been offered freely at a reduction on former rates, and sales to tite extent of 100 to 100 hogsheads beet effected. Geneva Ihas also been offered at reduced rates, but stocks are so very low, that we have little doubt all that has comne forwartid will meet a ready sale on being landed-Cigars.

Should you favour us with a visit you will be delighted with the appearance and progress of both private and public buildings; our neat and com mnodious Church is fast approaching completion. Our Hospital also will be ready for the reception of patients in a short time, and in connexion with the Institution, I think it worth recording that this day a fancy fair was held at lir. Moses' long room, by the Ladies ofYass and the district, and the result of their benevolent exertions was the munificent sum of ~51 5s. 3d., which was paid into the Trea surer's hands.

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." SsR,-The result of the debate in the Legisla tive Council on the subject of the Law Commis sioners' report, might be considered to render as unnecessary any expression of individual opinion on the subject, were not that during the whole de bate, no allusion was made to the impracticability of the Council passing any law which could give power to any tribunal to try criminal offenders by a jury of four. A court so constituted is unuknown in En gland, Scotland or Irelaud, and any endeavour to legalise it in this colony would, apart from being highly injudicious-1 might say dangerous, be abso lutely impossible, unless the Imperial Parliament were to alter the Constitutional Act. The Legisla tive Council has no power to pass any measure which is repugnant to the law of England, and most undoubtedly such a measure would be as the Com missioners recommend. The Attorney-General demands the thanks of the country for the noble stand he has made agains...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 21 July 1849

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Sxa,-As every person who carries on his trade in an honest and upright manner, is injured by those who donot, I consider that the Executive governiment is bound to extend the operations of such laws tas exist, in order to protect the one class and punish the other. The act relating to weights and measures although extended to this town, has as yet been wholly inoperative here, for what reason I know not. The law is an im perative one, and enjoins justices of the peace to appoint inspectors of weights and measures, as soon after its passing as can conveniently be done: and although the act has been the law of the land for some years, no steps have been taken to bring it into force in the town of Goulburn. Where the blame lies I know not and it is not worth enquiring about, but I do sincerely trust that the subject will be immediately taken in hand. I believe that ad justed weights and measures have been deposited -in the police office, but owi...
