DISTRICT REVISION COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 15 May 1849

DISTRICT REVISION COURT. On Saturday last, 12th instant, a meeting of District Magistrates took place at the police office for the purpose of revising the Electoral Roll for the District of Bourke. The following   magistrates were on the bench:—James Simpson,     (warden,) Dr. M'Arthur, Henry Moor, William Hull, James Smith, and Edwird Curr, Esqrs. A discussion took place as to whether a   claimant should not have been twelve months in   the occupation of the premises out of which he   seeks to qualify. Mr Simpson was of opinion that the Act was very explicit upon that point, the party must be twelve months in possession, before the last registration. Mr Palmer, (from the office of Mr Duerdin) who attended on behalf of a great number of the applicants, said it was merely necessary to prove a six months occupancy previous to the present registration of electors, so as to enable the per- sons whose names wil...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,— Having been present during the trial of a case of libel which lately took place in the Court House Melbourne, I beg to ask your opinion, as I am what is colonially termed a " new chum'" in the Colony, whether a party may briing forward any case, no matter how trum- pery it may be, to be tried before a Special Jury. Although you can probably guess the case to which I allude, I beg to send you the particu- lars of its main features, in the shape of a few stanzas in rhyme. By giving them insertion, and a short reply, I shall feel myself indebted to your kindness, and remain Yours very obediently, A NEW CHUM. May 12, 1849. Two Editors who never could agree   On any subject, but the mutual right Which they possess'd of making rather free With people's character, however bright Came into Court in spite of modesty— The one to frown on what he takes delight,   The other to support his awkward case, And prov...

THE SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849

THE SUPREME COURT. Reforms in the administration of justice requiring the intervention of a Legisla- ture, must probably be deferred until the Province is endowed with a Representa- tive Assembly devoted to its interests; but local abuses have crept into the practice of our Courts, which demand, because they admit of, an immediate remedy. Our reports are necessarily condensed, but holding ourselves specially pledged to watch the proceedings of our public courts, we only await the com- pletion of our arrangements to chronicle faithfully, and more fully, the scenes which too commonly occur. Every attendant at the Supreme Court during the late civil sittings must be impressed with a strong sense of the improprieties and irregularities which are allowed to revel there. The squab- bling of Counsel cannot be wholly pre- vented, but it might be restricted within reasonable limits. Zeal for their clients too commonly leads these gentlemen beyond decorum, and the temper of their wrangles var...

SYDNEY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 18 May 1849

SYDNEY.     (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) There is little or no news stirring.—The Anti-Transportationists are still holding their ward meetings, but the edge of the excitement appears to have been taken off. The great central meeting is to be held on the day subsequent to the arrival of the first convict ship in the harbour of Port Jackson, and all idea of resisting the ac- tual landing of these men (which was the expedient first talked about,) appears to have been abandoned. A report has got abroad, within the last day or two, that the convicts will not be landed in Sydney, at all, but will be sent at once to New- castle, or some other of the smaller ports. I doubt, however, whether there is any tangible foundation for the rumour. Nothing more has transpired as to the probable result of the election of Speaker of the Legislative Council.—I have been told that it is not the intention of Sir Charles Fitz Roy to open the business of the Session, until two da...
