HUNTER RIVER DISTRICT NEWS. [from our correspondents.] WOLLOMBI. Police.-Our police court has for the last three sittings been the scene of a series of cases arising out of at first an apparent trifling circumstance. A person named Riley and his step-son, Simon Ryan, were tenants to a farmer in this district, named Michael Moore, and some time back they agreed with Moore to erect a fence on his ground for him. After the fence had been begun, however, Moore and they disagreed about the line in which it ought to run, aud finally Moore determined not to proceed with it. Riley and Ryan hereupon served Moore with a legal notice either to proceed with the fencing according to agree- ment or go to quarter sessions ; and a son of Moore's and a youth named Hasset, both mere boys, retorted by abusing Ryan and pelting him with stones ; for which he had them up at the police office, and had them bound over to keep the peace for six months. The next step was for Riley to bring a charge against M...

ORiGncr.ai. cokres-po-n-detjce. To the Editors of the Maitland Mercury. Gentlemen-In perusing your journal of the 10th instant I find that your Muswell Brook Korrespondent, in speaking of property orders, has made use of my humble name as an autho- rity whereby to give his opinions on that subject some influence with the public. But he might have saved himself the trouble, for I can tell him what in the face of his report Í3 rather inexplicable, that the body politic have no knowledge of me Avhatever, and that even in this locality, Avhere my name and profession are recognised by some of my own genus, it ispretty well understood that he and I, though very good neighbours, are at variance in our views as regards thobe orders, and that if the limner's pencil were employed to depict our opinions, he would produce two very singular but most dis- similar portraits. I cannot therefore give him credit for consistency in having directed public attention to one who in so far as his merits ar...
