The vessel was fallen in with on the 26th of September, by the Minerva, who took off the wreck the second mate and four of the crew, in a very exhausted state-the captain, mate, and fourteen of the seamen having been swept away.

' rieltSe. -0 IHORRIBLE SCENE OF BRUTALITY TIN TE VETERI NA.\R COLLEGE, NEAN PAals.-I wish I could now bring my narration of what 1 that day saw to a close ; but I must not. Upon entering into what appeared to be a place of dissection, I found myself surrounded, not by dead, but by living subjects. It was a building or shed open to the air on one side, furnished with many strong pillars rising from the floor to the roof. Here lay six if not seven horses, fixed by.every possible mechanical device by the head and feet to these pillars to prevent their struggling; and upon each horse were six or seven men engaged in performing the different surgical operations. The sight was truly horrible. The operations had begun early in the forenoon. It was nearly three o'clock in the afternoon when-we en tered the place; so the poor wretches, as may be supposed, had ceased being able to make any very violent struggles; but the deep heaving of the still panting chest, and horrid look of the eyes wh...

Robert Brown, on Tuesday found guilty of horse stealing, was brought up for sentence, when his Honor stated, that he had inquired into the pri soner's character, which he did not find a very good one; lie awarded the sentence of ten years' trans portation, intimating that he would recon.mend the Governor to mitigate the sentence to seven years. John Kelie, also convicted on Tuesday of horse stealing, was placed at the bar for sentence; his Honor observed that the crime of horse stealing had become of late very prevalent in Bathurst and the surrounding districts, that in every case that came before him he was determined to award such a sen tence as might possibly deter others from committing tie same offence; as, however, the present case was not an aggravated one, he should pass the lenient sentence of three years in irons, on the public roads.

CIVIL JURISDICTION. Before his Honor the Chief Justice and a jury of four. nOYD V. TEMPLAR AND ANOTHER. This was action of trespass, for encroachments by the sheep and shepherds of the defendants, on the plaintiff's cattle run, called Gebolion, in the district of Bligh, beyond the boundaries of :location. The pleas were-first, not guilty ; second, that the plain, tiff was not possessed of the close in which; and third,liberumn teneomentu?n. It appeared from the evidence, that the plaintiffs and defendants oLcupied adjoining stations, and that for a period,)of about two years the sheep from the defendant's stations had been in the constant habit of feeding on various parts of the plaintiff's run, thereby causing great niumbers of his cattle to leave the run, and putting him to extra expense in the collection and care of them. There was a dispute as to a portion of the boundary lines between the stations, which however did not affect the issue of the cause. His Honor directed the jury...

FIRE AT PORT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 March 1847
FIRE AT PORT ADELAIDE. (From the South Australian.) On Friday last, about fifteen minutes to two o'clock, it was discovered that the sail loft belonging to Mr. Edward Bayly, sail-maker and ship chandler, was on fire. The building being composed entirely of wood, and filled with oakumn, pitch, tar, oil, cordage, and othler combustible materials, it was evident to every one in a moment that any attempt to quench the flames would be utterly futile. Indeed, in a very few seconds not only was the sail loft a sheet of flame, but the fire gained such a mastery as to threaten the destruction of the whole of the premises. and of the whole range of buildings immendiately adjoining. The wind was blowing fresh from the S.WV. nr S.S.W., so that from the position of the sail loft the fire was immediately to windwaurd of Mr. Bayly's shop, warehouse, and dwelling-house. These ad join the premises known as the Port 'l':vern, inl the occupation of Captain Wakeliug. In a few minutes the flame darted a...
