SUPREME- COURT1 CRIMINAL SESSIONS.' Tir? TRIAL OF bP LVILLE?- : Th?mas Smiafft alias AMelville took, his. trial at. the Supreme Court, on the 19th inst., charged with having in concert with others, wilfully murdered one Owen Owens, in the late conrvict ou?tbreak at Gellibrand's Point. The prisoner appeared in Court heavily ironed, and was attended by several warders. His features are of a deter mined and somewat repulsive cast, but a ner vous tremor about the mouth was at times perceptible, although the prisoner apparently endeavored to repress it. His.bearing through out the day was collected and resolute. On being called-on to plead, he replied "Not guilty," in a curt and decided tone.-Mr. Sewell opened the case on behalf of the Crown, and in his address to the jury entreated them to divest themselves of every prejudice; and decidethe case only upon its merits and the facts proved in evidence before them.

(To the Editor of the Williamstown Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 29 November 1856

(To the Editor of the Williamstown Chronicle,) SIR,-Having carefully perused the corres- pondence which passed between the Com- mittee of the Mechanics' Institution, and that of the Ladies, who were invited to furnish refreshments for the intended soiree to be got up in aid of the funds of the contemplated institution, I have come to the conclusion that the charge of discourtesy laid by the Ladies' Committee against that of the Institution is grossly unfounded. The correspondence being now before the public, and they therefore having an opportunity of investigating the proceedings, I challenge any lady or gentle man to point out a single syllable that could be construed into the slightest resemblance of discourtesy. It is true that the gentlemen   differed from the ladies in their opinion of the charge which ought to be made for the tickets of admission, and this is the "head and front" of their offence. But surely it has not come to this at last with the noble lords of...

The Ladies and the [?]ree. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 29 November 1856

The Ladies and the Soiree. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE SIR,--I cannot but admire the ready and somewhat self-denying zeal with which the Committee of the Mechlanics' Institiition have hastened to apprize the public of Williamstown of the rather depreciatory estimation in which they are held by the Williams Ladies. The publication of the correspondence   between them and the Ladies' Committee regarding the proposed Soiree is to be looked upon, I suppose, as a signal of distress, and an appeal for protection and aid to our enlighted community against the female interest. The public of Williamstown is mainly interested in knowing by what right this correspondence has been published at all. The Ladies have thought themselves aggrievd, and refused to give what in any case was entirely a free-will offering on their part. There thing should have taken end. Against that decision of their's there lay - there could lie-no appeal; and the production of their corres...

An insinuation having beenthrown out in your journal that the ladies had eagerly retired from the movement, as if with a view to avoid trouble and expense, I have pleasure in saying that the ladies have determined upon giving a Soiree at their own price (Half a-crown), and that the whole of the proceeds will be handed over to the Committee for the.benefit of the Institution. The entertainment will take place in about ten days from this time, to which the attendance and co-operation of. all-especially those for whose benefit the Institution is intended-are earnestly invited.
