Iflflll. ADJOURNED COURT 01? REQUESTS. Monday, Nov. 10. (Before Messrs. Irving, Gordon, and Ellis.) John Wilmot and wife v. Thomas Kelly, for £10, for defamation of character. Mr. Owen for the plaintiff, Mr. Rogers for the defendant. Mr. Owen in opening the case, said from the liuture of the language used by Kelly towards Mrs. Wilmot, rendered it unnecessary to prove special damages, and referred to authorities to show, that were the language used, amounted to a charge of felony, it was sufficient simply to prove their use. The defendant by his plea justified the words, us being true. The plaintiff was a person of unblemished character, and if this cliarire was to iro forth unrebutted, it would be an irreparable injury to her family. The Bench took nn objection to the consideration of tlio question not being of a nature contemplated by the act, the Chairman reading the forms, from which the scope of the act might be ob tained. Sydney precedents were quoted. The Chairman had no doubt...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 17 November 1856

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. Another link that connected the present generation of playgoers with those of an older date is broken by tho death of Madame Vestris, which occurred on Saturday, the 9th of August. Tho marriage of Mr. Bowes, M.P., well known upon tho turf, with Mademoiselle de Lome, of the Theatre des Varietes, in Paris, n. few days ago, caused no littlo sensa tion in the theatrical circles of that city. The several steamers running from various ports in tho Baltic to the Russian capital are reaping rich harvests from the number of passengers who are llockinar from all parts to witness tho coronation. A Paris correspondence of the Brussels Independence writes: — ' An affair, which is at this present moment creating a deep sensation ot Nantes, is the accusation against an ancient mayor of this city of having assassi nated a banker and his female Bervant. The local journals are filled with nccounts respecting this strange and terrible event.' Loni) Palmrkstos in Russia. — In Ru...

WHAT ARE WE TO HAVE INSTEAD OF RAILWAYS [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 17 November 1856

WIIAT ARE WE TO HAVE INSTEAD OF 'RAILWAYS? 'One . of tho financial propositions of Mr. Don aldson is to borrow .£400,000, to be spent upon Railways. The people of this district will have to bear their share in the taxation which will have to be submitted to, to defray the interest on this sum. This being the case, it behoves them to ?enquire what return they are to derive from this 'expenditure ? That it is not contemplated to construct Railroads in any of the coast districts, we believe is a fact. That the construction of the contemplated lines Will not benefit them, as producers, must be admitted when it is recollected that one of their effects will be to bring more produce into the market tliey supply, and, there fore, cheaper produce. Iti fact, they will be a positive injury to them ; and yet they will have to' contribute their share, as a section of the entire colotiy, towards the construction of such lines, Without receiving an equivalent in any other direction or shape.. flie...

THE ROCKY RIVER. (From the Armidale Express, Nov. 1.) 'Wo havo just been informed by a gentleman, who resides on the Rocky gold-field, that an accident ot an appalling nature oncurcd at Mount Jones on Wednesday afternoon last. Five men wero at work tunnelling amongst tlio old claims, when a party in tho vicinity imo'ining that lie heard thundor, mado a remark to that effect. On examination it was found that tho noizo had proceeded from tho falling in of an area of ground about thirty feet long 011 tho spot where the five men were at work. Tlio drift stuff had given way Irom the ironstone cement to the tunnel roof, and the men were buried in the ruin.

Sineo I last wote, a number of shafts at tho new diggings up Sawyer's Gully have been bottomed, but the success of this rush is still problematical ; for although several of these claims havo proved payable, and some even rich, others have turned out blanks ; however, very few shafts 011 the deep and hard ground havo yet reached the rock, and till these are bottomed we can know but littlo of this new fibld.
