SOUTH HEAD ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836
SOUTH HEAD ROAD. Wz have received a copy of a memorial which has been laid before His Excellency the Go vernor, signed by a number of highly respectable gentlemen, calling His Excellency's attention to, the state of the public walks and promenades in the neighbourhood of Sydney, more particularly with reference to the Southi Head Road. His Excellency has been pleased to signify his in tention of bringing the memorial before the notice of the Legislative Council at its next sessions but that no previous step can be taken in,the matter, as it involves an expenditure or the public money, not hitherto appropriated fof that purpose.' We have not room this week to insert the memorial; we shall probably, however, .give it in our next. The importance of public walks and drives in the neighbourhood of ai popu lous town, such as the metropolis of this 'Colony has now become, to the health and comfort of its inhabitants, is incalculable; and the pleasure experienced during an evening drive, en...
THE REV. MR. COWPER, JUNR. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836
THE REV. MR. COWPER, JUNR. WE congratulate our Episcopalian brethren tliroughout the territory, on the safe arrival in the colony of the Rev. Macquarie Cowper, a native of the colony, and a son of the Rev. Mr. Cow .per of Sydney, as a regularly ordained clergyman of the Church of England. In whatever part of his native country Mr. Cowper may be stationed, we trust he will prove to all who may be sub jected,. to his pastoral superintendence that he has come hither "in the fulness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ." Mr. Cowper, we be lieve, is the first native of the colony who has received a regular education in England for the clerical office: we trust his example will ere long be followed by many of the youth of Australia not in going to England to be educated, for that, we should think, will scarcely be necessary much longer; but in devoting themselves to the work 'of the ministry, and the promulgation of the Gospel of Christ; for surely we may say in the words of Scripture,...

GENERAL DARLING. IFROM THE LONDON EVENING MAIL. HOUSE OF COMMONS, SEPTEMBER 10.--Dr. Bow ring presented a petition from Patrick' Thomson, the soldier on whom General Darling had inflicted a se vere punishment, and respecting whose case, as well as the case of others, that House had instituted an in quiry. The petitioner stated, that having been sum moned from Ireland to attend the Committee, he arri ved yesterday week at half-past eight o'clock in the morning, but that on coming down to the House, he found that the Committee had made its report without going into his case, or examining evidence to prove the cruelty with which he had been treated. He sta ted, that if he had been heard by the Committee, or by the House, he should have been able to prove that the treatment he had received had been most cruel and oppressive. He entreated the House to give him an opportunity to prove his case. As a member of the Committee he (Dr. Bowring) must say, that the abrupt and extraordinarily pre...

THE AUSTRALIAN'S LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836
THE AUSTRALIAN'S LIBEL CASE. AT the' Supreme Court on Monday last, John Lamb, Esq., merchant, moved for a criminal information against Mr. John Richard Hardy, the Editor of The Australian, for a libel, published in that journal on the 26th January last. The article to which Mr. Lamb referred as being libellous was contained in a letter inserted in the leading article of that journal, as being such an answer as Mr. Lamb, in the opinion of the Editor, ought to have received from His Excel lency in answer to his (Mr. Lamb's) application, requiring the reason why His Excellency had omitted his name in the, new Commission of the Peace. The letter charged Mr. Lamb and others with having perverted the power vested in their hands as Magistrates for political purposes. Mr. Lamb was stopped, before he had time to state the par ticulars of the libel complained* of,' by Mr. .Therry, who as counsel for Mr. Hardy, objected to' Mr. L.'s making such a motion, contending that actions in the name of ...

THE BLESSINGS OF LITIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836
THE BLESSINGS OF LITIGATION. SoME facts were brought to light at'the Supreme Court on Tuesday last which, we doubt not, will encourage highly the litigious propensities of our community. In the case of Horrigan v. Mackaness, it was stated to the Court by Mr. Mackaness the defendant in that action, that a bill of costs (if we mistake not, for one.day's pro seedings only) had been delivered to him by Mr. Dillon, the attorney for the. plaintiff, to the .-amorunt of 541. " Unfortunately for himself,"' Mr. Mackaness said " he had not been brought up in an attorney's office, and was, therefore, unacquainted with what ought to have been the charges; Mr. Dowling, however, had kindly at tended at the Master's office to see the bill taxed. It was returned to him when taxed, the Master having reduced it from 541. to 141." Mr. Dillon endeavoured to justify his conduct in this in stance, by showing, that he was not singular in this respect, adducing an instance in the person of a highly respecta...
