EDITORIAL OPINIONS. THE LATE TRIAL AT HOBART TOWNi The following is from the Courier of tbe 24th ultimo, ou the late .trial io tbe ' Supreme Court-Gregson v. Wilson and others, for libel : " No language than we can use is capable of reflecting ihe disgust and alarm felt by all decent people relative to the recent as- sault upon Mr Gregson, by Mr Balfe, Assistant-Comptroller of Convicts, in the precincts of the Supreme Court. We have waited with impatience to ascertain what steps Mr Justice Horne may take to vin- dicate the insulted Majesty of the Law, and whatever these steps may or may not, be, ' we are bound to express our astonishment and concern that the course of punishment to be inflicted upon thc offender was not immediate, unhesitating, ned weighty " If euch an oocurreuce could by any stretch of conjecture be supposed, to have taken place in an English Court, who knows not that the delinquent would have been instantly visited with heavy fine and im- prisonment? And shall the...

THE [?] DIGGINGS. [FROM OUR OWN REPORTER] [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 20 January 1853
THE ONKAPARINGA DIGGINGS. [FBOK OOS OWN ESPORTEE ] No wonder the Bendigo or Bathurst men turn up their noses disdainfully at the Dig- gings on the other side of the Onkaparinga, when, freshly returned from the Diggings on the other side of the Border or the other side of the Continent, they make a trip to Echunga, " to see how things are going on* there. When they alight at Warland'a to offer their customary libations to the insatiable god within them, they meet numerous specimens of me digging fraternity, richly endowed with all the swaggering profusion, the impadent nonchalance, and the inveterate bibacity that characterise the "new aristocracy.'' Thia looks healthy, and encuorajges high expecta- tions. It indicates tbe vicinity of a very productive gold field ; a Booree of independence to no end of people. The indication ia con- firmed by the ecattered fragments of conver- sation which thelistenermaypicknp. "What'« become of old Tom &lt; Fossick ?" *« Oh ! he'a done the t...
