THE GOVERNOR'S ADDRESS TO THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL ASSEMBLED THE 14TH INSTANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839
THE GOVERNOR'S ADDRESS TO THE LEGIS LATIVE COUNCIL ASSEI1IBLED THE 14TH INSTANT. GENTLESMEN OFTII| LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.- hare calltd you together at this unusual season of the year, in order to propose to you the mneasui for the establishment of a Police Force beyodl rthe settled districts of the Colony. The vast interests which have grown up in those distant parts of the Territory, and the. number of persons of all classes now engaged in depasturing rheep and cattle beyond what are called the boundaries o, location, might be sutllcient of themselves to call for the protection of a Police Force; but the necessity for it is rendered far more urgent, by the frequent aggressions made of late by the aboriglinal natives upon the flocks and herds of the Colonists, as well as on the lives of their stockmen-by the outrages which have been committed on the aborigine, as well as by them and particularly by one atrocinus deed of blood, for which seven unhappy men have suffered on the scaffold....
SATURDAY, 23RD. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839
S ATURDAY, 23RD. AN OUTRAGEOUS CHARACTER .—William Hilton, free, in the service of Mr. Roberts, of Campbell River, came down from Bathurst in charge of a oad of wool, on Friday, and put up at the Black Swan, on Brickfield Hill. In a few hours after- wards he was apprehended by a constable for being &nbsp; drunk and collecting a disorderly mob of people &nbsp; about him in the streets. His language and conduct &nbsp; were so violent while in the watch-house, that it was found necessary to handcuff him, put him in irons, and confine him in a separate cell, where he continued the most obscene language in the hearing of several females who were confined in another room. The Bench remanded him to Hyde Park Barracks, to ascertain whether he were a free man. This fact having been ascertained, the Bench sen- tenced him to pay a fine of 5s. or be exposed four hours in the stocks. John Gibbon, charged with drunkenness and assaulting a constable in the execution of his ...

BATTLE OF WATERLOO. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839
BATTLE OF WVAT'ERLOO. We yesterday derived much gratification from a private view of a model of the Battle of Waterloo, executed by Lieutenant Siborn, assistant military secretary to the Lieutenant-general commanding in Ireland. The model is on the scale of about eight feet to the mile, and gives a complete and most vivid representation of the scene of action, and of the critical and well-fought battle which has bestowed a universal celebrity on the plain of WVaterloo. Every village, every house and farm yard, every knot of trees, every condulation of surface, every field, nay, every crop of wheat, or other produce which the field bore at the time, in short, every detaillis given with the closest accuracy, from a six months ierso nal ob-ervation, aided by the most authen tic information. The positi.m of all the various troops engaged at the moment selected for representation is marked out with the utmost exactness and in the most graphic manner. The model of all the buildings and na...
English Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839
English Extracts. There is an article in the Dublin Pilot on the Melbourne Ministry, which is rather amusang, when it is remembered, that the Pilot is Mr. OtConnell's paper, and that Mr .O'Connell is 'Lord. Melbourne's most powerful ally. Take a sample SWVe do not remember to have rend in English or indeed European history, of any Ministry that pnasessed equal advan tages and powers for serving their country i's the Melbourne Ministry pogsessed, on the assumption of the' sceptre last year by the pre-enrt Monarch.' But, unluckily, on the very first nigbht of the assembling of Parliament; Lord J. Russell, the leader of the Reform movement and of 'the House of Commons, suddenly came out, with a declaration aeainst the ballot and all further Reform !'This ,at once h,4its effect on the people ; and the Tory.

70 TiE EDITOR OF TiE. Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser.

As you have therefore permitted the insertion of so very.injurious a statement, it is of conrse expected, that you will feel it but common justice to give place in your paper to the following plain statement of facts; and first, with respect to the sus p'icion that the menii in qc'es''i n were the party who attacked Mr bKwin's premises. hiermnit me tO explain, that at that ptriod all our men, nearly one half of them free etliirants, were conttantly employed in shee...

Mr. Justice Burton. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 27 February 1839
Mr. Justice Burton. In consequence of a certain charge to the jury of 'Ir. Justice Burton in the time of Governor Bourke, the unqualified admirers of that talented and upright statesman (among whom we never would rank ourselves,) insisted, that the exhibition of crime in that charge, was intended more as a reflection on the government of Sir Richard, than hIenestly to expose the villainous system by which men of . an infamous character- were at that time allowed to be associated with upright inen in the jury box. We could have wished that Mr. Justice Burton had delayed his charge another year, when party spirat htad evaporated a little more, because it is not enough tlhat judges should speak the truth ; they mnust speak it at the proper time. '* There is a time for all thlings." But while we find fault with the time in which Judge Burtona delivered the charge in question, we agreed with him in the dark exp asition he made of the moral state of the colony; we will not say in all its ...
