RAILWAY POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 31 December 1856

RAILWAY POLICY. There appears to ba a disposition on the part of the peopla of thia colony to impress its Executive with thc characteristics of pa ternity, the insidious workings of which, if but tolerated in name, will ultimately lead to consequences militant to the enjoyment of popular liberty. This may arise from the inexperience which a great majority of our people have had in thc principles.of self-go vernment, and the trust winch people of British birt h have been in the habit of placing in those in power. It becomes necessary, however, in the new character we have as sumed, in founding new hearths and homes, and in improving our Government in accord ance with ; the principles of free institutions, advocating thc claims of the many that every intelligent member of thc community should watch with zealous interest every move which is made towards the solidification of institu tions, and endeavor to restrain the ambitious and selfish views of those we have entrusted with power.

POLICE COURT.       Tuesday, 30th December.   (Before Mr. Turner, Esq., S.M.) George Elmes, brought up on a charge of being drunk and disorderly ; having ex- pressed contrition for the offence, was dis- charged. Catherine Camior was charged, by Robert Newton, with stealing 1 pair of trousers, and 2 shirts, the property of Robert Newton. Mr Cope defended the prisoner. This was a case in which the prosecutor had become in- debted to prisoner in a balance for board and lodging. A charge of 30s. per week was   made, which prosecutor thought exorbitant and refused to pay. No agreement had been entered into, it would seem, although prose- cutor had boarded with prisoner since 18th       August last, and had paid money in account.
