JUDICIAL OATHS OF HEATHEN WITNESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 14 January 1869
JUDICIAL OATHS OFP EATHEN: WITNESSES. ' (From the Pall ,!iall Gazette.) Ma. :Cnsno?a? ANBTEY has just published' an interesting and even amusing pamphlet, on the 'subject of the system adopted in our courts of law at home and in most of the colonies, of administering judicial oaths to people who are not Christians. He proposes that such oaths should be altogether abolished, and we think that no one who reads his pamphlet can doubt that, if his facts are correct-and he appears to have taken great pains to ascertain their correct ness-his inference follows from them. Mr. Anstey very fairly says that he objects :toi all oaths, promissory, compurgatory, or as snrtory, and whether the witnesses be Christians or heathens ; but without entering upon so wide and well worn a discussion, his special objections to oaths administered to heathen witnesses deserve the careful attention of all persons interested in the reform of the law.: The theory upon which the use of oaths is justified, is tha...

FRIDAY—JANUARY 15. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 January 1869
FRIDAY-3ANUARY *15. In the Assembly, .. : Mr. Isaacs having made some explanation .iri reference to a remark reported to have been made on the previous evening by Mr. Robertson, ~Ir. Speaker drew attention to the irregularity'of these explanations, and to the fact that so much time was occupied in correcting the press. He also referred to the irregularity of the use of words imputing falsehood. He found that describing statements as false was entirely unjustifiable by the practice of parliament. Many cases of the . kind were on record; and it had always been laid down that there must be a distinct charge and an inquiry made whether the statement was false or not, espe cially when the charge affected the character of an hon. member. He ventured to may that no state ment imputing falsehood to an hen. member would = ever be listened to in the House of Commons. -.He' would refer hon. members particularly to the.crseS where the character of Sir- James Graham was . brought into question b...

ALBURY. (From the Goesbura Herald.) TiHE following particulars with respect. to' Albury were gathered during a recert'visit to that rising town without any thought of their bei'g published; but as they m!y be interesting, especially those portions relating to municipal matters, 'they are now laid before our readers. As our readers are aware, Albury is a. large town 'situated on the border of the colony "about two hun dred and forty miles from Goulburn on the banks of the Murray River formerly called the HIums, which is navigable up.to the town during the principal part ofthe year.

THE CAPTURE OF RUTHERFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 21 January 1869
THE CAPTURE OF RUTHERFORD. (From the Maitland Mercury). Our Bourke correspondent, under date December 30, furnishes us with a copy of Senior-sergeant Cleary's evidence as to the pursuit and capture of Rutherford, alias Dr. Pearson, the bushranger, and , supposed murderer of McCabe. As it differs some- what from the. Dubbo Dispatch, we give it in fall. The case came on before the Bourke police-bench, on Monday, December 28.. On Monday the 28th, a very valuable Christmas-box was presented by Senior- sergeant Cleary to the town, in the person of Dr. Pearson, an individual about twenty eight years of age, of rather a respectable appearance, and as much cool impertinence I as would suffice for half a dozen common men, and the supposed murderer of the un- fortunate Mc Cabe, at Shearer's Hotel, on the Warrego. - But here is the sergeant's evidence:- -On Monday the 21st instant, from information received that Messrs. &nbsp; Fields' and Acres' stations, on the Darling &nbsp; ...

'Stewart resumed the adjourned debate on the Collector of Customs' Suporannuatiots 'Bill. From .what he had heard from the hon. members who had spoken, it seemed that there had been.a vast amount of wrong done by everybody men tioned in the matter; and yet nobody was to be punished except the public, and Mr. Duncan was to be rewarded. He believed that ministers had their own reasons for reinstating Mr. Duncan; and that there had been a compact between them and the heads of the Roman Catholic church, by which in retur'n for the reinstatement, the support of that body was promised to the government at the next general election. He objected to the bill because it put Mr. Duncan in a better position than he would have occupied had he remained in office. * Mr. Terry and Mr. Walker opposed, and ...
