It is supposed that the man was en gaged in driving his sheep when the awful event occurred. His body was found 3 or 400 rods from the hut weltering in blood, his skull fractured, and his head cut with a toma hawk in several places, The body was found in conse quence of the barking of the dogs belonging to the de ceased, having attracted the attention of some of the persons employed at the station. When found, he was alive, but died shortly afterwards. An inquest Was held on Tuesday, the 19th instant, and a verdict returned of, murdered by some person or persons unknown. A large reward ought to be offered by Government, or- if not by Government, by the large sheep-owners of the district, for the apprehension of the murderer. The security of shep herds in far off stations ought to be provided for( otherwise few men will venture int...

Illawarra. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 30 June 1849

Sllawarra. The settlers on the newly purchased lands at the back of Mount Kembla are almost beyond the pale of the law ; being west of the Illawara range they are beyond the Police District, and not within reasonable distance of any other. Should they, therefore, contract debts in Wollongong, a Court of Requests card of invitation may be treated with contempt. I do not mean to infer that those backwoodsmen are capable of such dis honesty, but one such case has occurred, and others may. The same may he said of the coun try on the Cordeaux. It is therefore well that this matter should be brought under the notice of the Executive, and if his Excellency has riot the power to increase the Police District so as to include the country alluded to, it is to be hoped the Attorney-General will adopt some means to do so : — perhaps by a declaratory act, as the land being at the back of the Illawarra range. he will only require the boundaries, which may now he obtained from the Surveyor-General'...

Glories of the Law. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 7 July 1849

? o ? Crlories of the laaw. In a late amusing publication of Charles Butler's he mentions some astonishing instances of legal absurdity. A gentleman having six estates, wished to settle one on each of his six sons, and the heirs of their bodies respectively, with what lawyers terms cross remainders between them, where on failure of issue in one line, the estate passes to the other branches. Mr. Butler being directed to prepare the deed, conceived at first that one proviso would he sufficient ?. he then thought six would do, but on examining more minutely how many clauses would be requisite to legally express the whole settlement, he would find that it would require 720, being every possible com bination of the number* six. The other example is still more striking. Ten gentlemen partners in a mining company wished to provide by deed, that if any one of the number advanced money to any of the others, it should be considered a sort of mortgage on the borrowers' share, and have preferen...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1849. TEE GREAT LIBEL !!! [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 7 July 1849

' THE BATHUHST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1849. THS CJEtBAW &XBS& I I I The examination of the charges preferred against us by John Davies for a libel, &c, was to have ?been heard on last 'Wednesday, at the Police Court; but the prosecutor not having procured the necessary certificates from Sydney, was made an ostensible ground for the postponement of the hearing. Mr. MTntosh, the prosecutor's lawyer, was in Sydney at the time. The hearing is fixed for 'Wednesday next, the 11th instant. A great revolution in the administration of prison discipline will soon take place in England. A band of enlightened and philanthropic men, among whom Captain Machonochic, Mr. Frederick Hill, and Mr. Matthew Hill, shine conspicuously, are busily at work undermining the old system of arbitrary and revengeful punishment, and estab lishing a new and better order of things.

Female Ingenuity. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 7 July 1849

Female Xne-enuitv. I am going to relate one of the most extraordinary and complete instances of wholesale swindling that I believe is on, record. 'and yon will say at once, that it is wonderful that those who live upon their wits and on other people's pro perty should be gifted with such singular impudence. Not long since, in London, were three dashing denizens, two gentlemen and a lady, who continued to lead a merry, gair life, by swindling, and false pretences. Their freaks were numberless, and such their adroitness and confidence that I believe they were never detected. It chanced one day that all their pains and schemes were used up, they found their funds were getting low, and anxious to recruit them, they assembled in congress one evening after tea, for that, and othey special purposes. 'My dear,' said one gentleman after the' three had met, apparently tired out by his silent cogitations, ' it is no use, I cannot concoct any plan but what has been carried out too often. I am a...

Mr. William Henry Barber. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 7 July 1849

Mr. William Henry Barber. (From, the Express, January 10) Most of our readers, we dare say, have some recollection of the trial of Mr. William Henry Barber, a solicitor, of some standing and consi derable practice, who was, in the spring of 1844, convicted of forgery, and sentenced to transpor tation for life. Mr. Barbers private and pro fessional character had been previously altogether unimpeached, and from the first there were very strong doubts whether he could have been guilty of the crime for which he suffered, the grounds for which opinion have, been at different times, and in a variety of shapes, brought before the public. The recent return of Mr. Barber to this country, after receiving a full pardon from the Crown, is likely to call renewed attention to all   the circumstances of this very remarkable case.   Mr. Barber naturally feels that, though the Go vernment have, after a most unwarrantable delay,   thought proper to acknowledge h...
