THE SOVEREIGN PEOPLE OF ARKANSAS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 August 1860
TaE SOVEREIGN PeOPLE OF ARKANSAS. The recent brawls in the House at Washlingto. remind us of a story we heard ill Arkansas several years since, which has never been in print. It is no disrespect to the present en lightened and genial State of Arkansas.to.sa3r that in its incipient or territorial days it was rather "rough." It was a very common thing for a man to leave the bosom of his family in, sound health in the morning and return dead at night. Cuttings, slashlings, and shootings. were of daily occurrence. It was dangerous to, be safe. The Legislature was chliefly composed of bullies and blacklegs, andi the scenes enacted by them were often very eccentric. A fight arose about something in "the Houseo" one. day. The Hon. MLr. Banger, of Napoleon, called the IHon. Mr. Slanger, of Helena, a liar. The IIon. Mr. Slanger retorted with a bullet, whlich took off the I-Hon. Mr. Banger's left year, Both then sprang in thel centre.of the hall with drawn bowie knives. Tih. speaker said, 'By...
COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 August 1860
COLONIAL EXTRA CTS. A meeting of the master bakers of Sydney was held on Thursday afternoon, at the Gardeners' Arms, Sussex-street. From the whole tenor of the meeting, we gathered that nearly all the master bakers are preparedto give up Sunday work; but the majority of those present could not give upnight work, asto do so would en tirely stop their business. The principal object of the meeting was to refute the assertions made at the journeyman's meeting; the masters posi tively denying their hours to be as asserted. We believe, however, that the subject being thus mooted will result it a mutual arrangementbe tween the parties concerned, and we trust both masters andjourneymen will be prepared to deal fairly and equitably with the matter in dis pute.-Christian Pleader; A FaRESH IMSoaRT?vTIONe o" STOCK roac ENoLasDn.-There were' landed yesterday from the Bristsh MIeachant, four very superior bulls, and two magnificent heifers of the Durham breed some remarkably fine South down sheep...

WATER POLICE COURT. THIURsDAY. BEFORE thle Worer Police Magistrate and Mr. IT. Armitago. A novel hlarge, involving an important point with regard to the law of marriage, came before this Court, on the information of Christopher Rolleston, the IRegistrar-General, which statel that, on tho 6th of last June, lenry Robinson Smith, registrar for marriages in the district of Redfern, celebrated a marriage between William Roberts, surveyor, and Catherine Kelly, withosn two witnesses, and thus contrary to the Act. MIr. J. Williams, the Crown Solicitor, appeased for the prosecution. It appeared that, on July 11th defendant reported on the marriage to the Registrar-General, stating that the parties had been living together as man and wife for ten years as man and wife, and that as, under the circumstances it was derirable she marriage should be as private as possible, and believing at the time that the presence of a third party could be dispensed with, he (defendent) signed his own name as on...

This was an action for assault by .defendant andothers, under his direction, upon the two plaintiffs, and arrest and false imprisonment. The substantial defence was, that defendant had been first assaultedt, and had acted in self defence. Mr. Isaacs and Mr. Franois appeared for: plaintiffs, and MIr. Meymott for the defendant. This was one of those cases in which the evi denee was so very contradictory at to make it clear that there was most gross perjury son the one side or on the other. According to thile evidence of Burns and his wife, at assault of the most brutal character had. been committed. Plaintiffat this time resided at Maicquarie River, in the district of Illawarra.

Urox a lovely summer day, . -Tho meadow smiling, bright, and gay With thousand flowers of every hue, SBoth red and yellow, white and blue; : Oh! such a la;wn is rarely seen, Clad in the most attractive green, A mother sat, so full of joy, And on her Inap her darling boy, More dear to lier, and precious far, Than mornin' light, or evening star; The little child then begging prayed, And "sweetest mother" lisping said, "Now big enough I am indeod, Nor need that one me always lead, To run among the flowers I long.

HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER III. HORRIBLE DISCLOSURES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 August 1860
H1IS'ORY OF AUSTRALIA. (FROe THuE ARRAMAsA A CHensoICLa.) CHAPTER III. 5HoRRlLE DIBCLOSURES. Anour two years after the arrival of the first fleet four more ships came in to Sydney harbor. When they left England they had on board 461 souls, but, horrible to relate, 291 of those died at sea from fever3, scurry, dysentry, cholera morbus and other virulent forms of disease. The remaining 200, who were brought on shore, were reduced almost to their last stage of existence. Such fearful mortality~as this could not be brought about except by gross mismanagement of the captain and officers of the vessel. The human heart sickens at the tales of woe re counted by the survivors of this memorable voyage. One of tlhem, James Smith, states that on their way out, when about crossing the line, the weather was so oppressive that they asked a little extra indulgence in the way of water, and lon~er hours for exercise upon deck. Their applicatton, however, fell into unfortu nate hands. The sentinels wh...
RUNAWAY HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 August 1860
uWnAWAY TotsE.-ConsiderabIle constorna tion was caused in different parts bf the city yes terday by the running away of a spirited horse, belonging to Mr. IIHenry Mort. It appears that the animal, attached to a dogcart, was being driven from Woolloomooloo towards Sydney by Mr. Mort s coachman, and, when near St. Mary's Cathedral, came into close proximity to a mob of horses which, by some means, caused it to take fright and run away. It bolted off at a rapid pace, ran down by the north end of the Race course at the back of St. James' church, and camne in contact with a cab standing on the cab stand near the new Registry Office. The con cussion was so violent that it threw out the coachman, turned over thie dogoart, the shafts of which broke, and the horse, thus becoming dis engaged, bolted off along Elizaheth-street to wards Park-street. At the corner of Park and Elizabeth streets time hlorse ran against the shop window of MIr. P'itt, jeweller, breaking thie win dow, and doing other...
