The Williamstown CHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, December 6th. TREATMENT OF THE WILLIAMS TOWN CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 6 December 1856

TREATMENT OF THE WILLIAMS- TOWN CONVICTS. IT was the maxim of a certain judge who lived some two or three centuries ago, "Never "to decide upon the merits of a case until he "had heard both sides of the story.' This   plan is now, we, believe, universally adopted, wherever there is a desire to arrive at the truth, or a disposition to afford justice; and when ever this mode of investigation is laid aside, then it is that blind passion and preju- dice take the place of sound reason and common sense. In perusing a report of the proceedings   which took place at a meeting at the Melbourne Mechanics' Institute last Monday evening, we are led to think that the worthy citizens who "held forth" on that occasion had altogether   lost sight of the wise maxim to which we have referred. We'ire told that the speakers in veighed with gre t bitterness against the iis cipline employed on' board the hulks,- that: terrible anathemas'were poured forth upon the lu...

A train conveying about 800 passen gersfrom Antwerp, who were returning from the fetes on the occasion of the visit of King Leopold to Antwerp, had started at eight o'clock. It had not proceeded more than a few miles when it encountered a fearful shock. There were two locomotives drawing it, one of which was thrown violently upon the right and the other on the left of the line. There were twenty carriages in all, the foremost of which were smashed to atoms, and the others more or i less.damaged. It appears that a cow had Sstrayed from an adjoining field, and had lain down on the rails unperceived by the engineers or stokers, who, by the shock were thrown to a considerable distance from the place. One of those officers died soon after the accident. Two only of the passengers were killed upon the spot, but about twenty of them were ...

MUNICIPALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 20 December 1856

MUNICIPALITIES. In the Legislative Council on Tuesday last, Mr. FosTER moved for a return of (1,) The amount of property assesse4 in each municipality in Victoria in 1857. (2.) The amount of rate struck. (3.) The amount ofrates bona fide collected. (4.) A statement of when such rates were struck. whether in the first or second half of the year: He had moved for this information in this distinct form because the base of the assess ments had been extremely various in different localities-some very low, and some as high; and it was very desirable to place the info-. mation in the hands of heon. members. He had been informed that in many places a high rate had been struck in the municipalities, but had not been collected, and if so, it was clearly a breach of faith with the Govern ment. That was another reason why he rr quired the return he had moved for. It would also enable him to clear up one point upon which he was uninforimed. He did not ur. derstand whether the' amount collected i...

Oitigilit (Oorrespouditleta. AUSTRALASIAN WESLEYAN MISSIONS. [To the Editor of the WrrLLIaX8TOw.

That mbney is continually being raised for charities in Williamstown speaks well for the place; and I trust that, for purposes so noble, and so characteristic of an enlightened and benevolentcommunity, money will continually be raised.' But to the statement that "none ever hears what becomes of it," 1 must beg respectfully to demur, and particularly so in its application to money raised for "Church Missionaries." The money raised for "Missionaries" in connection with the Wesleyan Church-and I. presume the remark will apply to money raised.for Missionaries of other Churches--is rguiarily ,reported, which reports are re printed for distribution year by year; and if your c...

WHO IHAS THE PRIVILEGE OF-USING GOVERNMENT PROPERTY? [To the Editor of the WILL?A.M5TOWN CJROICLE. SIr,-I hope you will pardon me for ask ing a question which you may think a very foolish one.

And may I also ask whether I can also have the use of her sails for an awning, her flags, lamps, &c., &c. Knowing that she costs the country £50 a day, I should not expect her services for my special use, did I not see that a certain Government official has had the use of her men, lamps, &c., &c., for a party which he is holding this evening. I do not think that because he gets a salary of £500 a year for doing next to nothing, and I get ten shillings a day for working hard, that he ought to ha- the privilege any more tha...
