POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 20,18[?]. Before Helenus scott, Esq., P.M. Charge of Assault and Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

POLICE INTELLIGENCE. NEWCASTLE POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 1868. Before Helenus Scott, Esq., P.M.   Charge of Assault and Robbery.     Samuel Lawrence and Joseph Lawrence, were brought up, on remand, charged with assaulting and robbing one James Overhill, on the night of the 1st inst. Mr. Slater and Mr. Chambers appeared for the priso- ners. Margaret Richardson being sworn, said : I am a store- kecper, living at Honeysuckle Point, on the opposite side of a roadway to the prisoners. I remember Friday, the 1st May. My son, Stephen Richardson, came home on   that night. I looked at the clock at the lime ; it was just twenty-five minutes to twelve o'clock. I heard the prisoner (Samuel) speaking very loud inside his house to his father. Samuel Lawrence was at our house most of   the afternoon of that day, setting two stoves for me. I don't know anything with reference to Joe Lawrenoe. I could not say to half an hour at...

DISTRICT NEWS. WARATATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

DISTRICT NEWS. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS. WARATAH.           THE NEW STONE QUARRY.—The men employed at the new Government stone quarry (the one   visited the other day by the hon. Mr. Byrnes) have had their labours crowned with success by coming on a thick bed of stone, which, in all probability, will answer the purpose for which it is required, viz., to reconstruct the breakwater at Newcastle. This is likely to be a good thing for Waratah, as it will cause a great many men to be employed. I am glad to be able to say however, that there are not many men out of employment just at the present time. I hope and trust that it may continue so, for things a little while back were very dull in Waratah.   DAUGHTERS OF TEMPERANCE.—This society     held their fortnightly meeting in the Wesleyan church, on Monday night last.

WALLSEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

WALLSEND.           Judging by the spirit shown at the public meeting held on Tuesday evening last, this town is destined to go ahead rapidly. The inhabitants have been exceedingly energetic for some months past, but up to the present time, I am sorry to say, their energy has not been well rewarded. But we are not going to be disheartened for all that. A firm determination is expressed by the townspeople generally not to rest satisfied until some of the grievances they complain of have been redressed. In the matter of the erection of a goodsshed, the proprietors of the Estate are about to be written to, asking them what they can do for us. I hope we may be more success- ful than we were with the Hon. Mr. Byrnes. Another grievance has recently come to light, which concerns every individual in our midst who owns land or property in Wallsend — I allude to the absence of a Government road of any des-   criptio...

From another correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

- From another correspondent. THE ODDFELLOWS' HALL. — Many of the     readers of the Chronicle will learn with pleasure, that the landlady of the Travellers' Rest Hotel   has made the Oddfellow's Hall fifteen feet longer, and in other respects greatly improved the room, which is now well adapted for entertainments of all kinds. SPECIAL TRAINS. —On looking over your wide- spread journal of Wednesday , I notice that special trains are to run everywhere but to and from Wallsend. How comes this to pass ? Special   trains have never been laid on here without be- ing well patronised, and I am surprised at this omission. Our correspondent will see by reference to       our advertising columns of to-day that the omis-   sion he speaks of has been supplied. Special trains are announced to leave Wallsend on Mon- day next, at nine o'clock in the morning, and     &am...

PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

PATERSON.                   Like many other country correspondents, we   have a hard matter to collect anything like a creditable amount of news that will be of any     interest to your readers ; and that which we have endeavoured to obtain, as an agricultural community, will not present any features of a     very prolific or prosperous future — rather gloomy than prosperous, but still there is hope. For     the last five or six years our settlers have had to contend with numerous disasters, repeated floods,   droughts, rust in wheat, and latterly the very low price that maize has realised during the past season. All these evils combined have almost crippled the resources of our farming community, and sickened their hearts against renewed energy for the future, and ...

CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. We give a brief summary of Monday's pro-   ceedings, in the case of the Queen v. Macpher- son, from the Herald's report. Mr. Justice Cheeke ruled that the demurrer raised by Mr. Macpherson against the infor- mation, was good. He thought the rules of law would not permit that a new offence should be created, or the limits of an indict- ment for assault be extended by an aggravation without precedent, unless a law had been first passed by the Legislature. The information   did this, and it was therefore bad. The law laid down was that a Colonial Legislature could legally protect itself from obstruction by removing the obstructor ; and if a breach of the peace was committed could prosecute for that before the ordinary tribunals. Mr. Justice Faucett, on the other hand, thought the information was good in all points. The words omitted were not material. The words substituted, and charging as an offence, or part of the offence, the contemp...

Tuesday. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Cheeke. REGINA V. MACPHERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 23 May 1868

TUESDAY. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Cheeke. REGINA V. MACPHERSON. His Honor, after consulting with the Soli- citor-General, informed Mr. Macpherson that there had been a communication made to the Judges with reference to the demurrer, and it had been decided that the demurrer should be heard before the full court on the first day of next term. No special day had been fixed, but it was customary to say "the first day of next term." At present the case stood as if it were beginning de novo — all that had     passed in reference to it was as nothing. If the demurrer was decided in Mr. Macpherson's favor he would be discharged, and there would be an end of it, perhaps ; if the demurrer was decided against him he would be bound over to appear for trial at the next criminal sessions, or when called upon by the Attorney General. Mr. Macpherson, after consulting his solici- tor (Mr. Barker), signified his concurrence in the arrangments made by the Judges, but he ...
