lo the Independent Electors of the Eastern Division of the County of Camden. /'I ENTLEMEN — My retirement from the list of Candidates for VX the representation of the County of St. Vincent in the New . Parliament, induced by a disinclination to endanger the liberal - interest by its division amongst so many, leaves me at liberty to ?accept the very flattering invitation with which I have been honoured by an influential portion of the constituency of East Camden. As I propose waiting personally upon you during the ensuing 'week, I shall for the present content myself with briefly recapitu lating the heads of my political creed, which I am gratified to find has met your approbation. I am resolutely opposed to certain provisions of the New Con stitution Act, of which I conceive the nominee element and the Two Thirds Clause, which provides so tardy and insufficient a means for its eradication, to be the most obnoxious. Education in its most economical and comprehensive form, as *ihe chi...
JERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856
JERRINGONG. &nbsp; &nbsp; [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] &nbsp; The late heavy rains has caused a great change in the condition of the roads in this neighbourhood, more particularly 'that well &nbsp; known spot,' called Miller's Swamp, a locality proverbial for its richness of soil as well as its superabundance of ' mud holes,-'' &nbsp; and many dire disasters have occurred within the last few days to persons passing along it, more particularly as the drays laden &nbsp; with produce on their route to Kiama, several of them having be- come quite embedded in the rich black soil, and many an unlucky horseman shared the same fate, as their altered appearance gave ocular demonstration of the fact, many of, them after their arrival at terra firma, having an extra suit in the bargain. It may seem somewhat strange, but it does not appear on record that any per- son who has the management of this part of the road, of their having shared the same...

THE COUNTY OF ST. VINCENT.— ELECTION MEETINGS AT B LI AID WOOD, ULLADULLA, AND BROULEE. A public meeting of the electors of the town and district of Braidwood was held on the 24th instant, in the Court-house, Braidwood, the object of which was the nomination of fit and proper persons as representatives in the new Parliament. The meeting was tolerably well attended. On t.lio mnf-.inn of TVf it . Tit dm A s. Mr. Andrew Biultrorv was voted to the chair. Ma. Badgery said, that as he intended taking rather an active part in the proceedings of the meeting he must beg to decline an honourable post in which they had placed him. The meeting, however, would not accept Mr. Badgery' s refusal, but consented to his taking the same part in the proceedings that he would have done had he not been placed in the chair. Mr. Badgery then, with a few prefatory observations, begged to propose William Roberts, Esq , as a fit and proper person to represent the County of St. Vincent in the new Parliament. M...
SHOALHAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 11 February 1856
SHOALHAVEN. Tfrom our own correspondent.] This has been a most exciting week here, on account of the revision of the Electoral List, which was fixed for Tuesday last ; but owing to tlie length of time occupied by the Court of Requests, the revision did nob commence till the Wednesday. There were twenty-six objections made, ten of which were sus tained, and their names struck off the list ; the remuining sixteen objections were not sustained. A considerable number of the objections sustained were on account of the parties not being pro vided with written leases, or other documentary evidence to prove their claim. On entering into the list of new claimants (twenty in number), it was found impossible to proceed, as fourteen of the claims were objected to, and no notice of objection had been served either on the parties objected to or on the Clerk of the Bench In order therefore to give the parties now objected to time to come forward and substantiate their claims, the Bench decided on ...

TO THE ELECTORS OF EAST CAMDEN. Per favour of The Illawarra Mercury. Fellow Colonists, — As I understand that Mr. Hawkesley, the editor of The People's Advocate , has been induced, at the instance of a number of the electors of East Camden, to offer himself as a candidate for the representation of that Electoral District in the New Parliament, lj have much pleasure in recommending Mr. Hawkesley to your countenance and support as a fit and proper person for that important and responsible office. And as Mr. Hawkesley is an English Roman Catholic, while I am a Scotch Presbyterian, I trust that the circumstance will not only shew that there is no sectarian feeling in the case, as there certainly is on the part of a large proportion of the supporters of the Attorney vreuerai in ojuiiov, uuu win iuuuub uiubi jLiuioauitnuo «uu j.ioouj terians to follow my example.

WOLLONGONG AND BULLI PARISH ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 11 February 1856
WOLLONGONG AND BULLI TARISH ROAD. It will be in the recollection of our readers, that a few weeks ago a meeting, duly called by the Magistrates, was j held in the Court House, of the owners of land contugious to the above named road, to elect Trustees under the ' Parish Road Act.' All the preliminary requirements of the Act having been complied with, four gentlemen were elected. The parties so elected, proceeded to the ?discharge of the duties devolving upon them as Trustees, with a promptitude that might be imitated with advantage :by many elected, and other bodies. They had specifica tions drawn out, and tenders invited for the performance ?of the work required, and took such other steps as plain men of business would, to expedite the necessary repairs rto the road. All appeared to go on satisfactorily — tenders were received, and we believe a judicious selection made from them ; also a person chosen to collect the assess ment ; — -when they are brought to a dead lock. This was 'b...

From the increased interest that had' -been -manifested by the residents for some months past, a good exhibition was anticipated, and there can be no doubt this would have been realised had the weather been favourable, but the late heavy -vains having made our roads so bud, that it is a work of some difficulty to travel at all. In the early part of the day it rained verv heavy, so that some who intended to exhibit, both iive -and other stock, were prevented ; and, indeed, in one instance even with horses tney had to return home, after having come a ?considerable-distance. The stock exhibited gave evidence of the .?state in which --our roads are being covered, in many instances, with mud to their haunches ; but with all these drawbacks, the .exhibition was said to be a good one, and gave evidence of much improvement in these...
