MAGISTERIAL MARTINETSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 August 1860
MAGISTERIAL MARTINETSHIP.-We have &nbsp; heard of naval and military martinets, the rigor of whose discipline and overbearing crotchets have not only been exercised to the curtailment of the natural rights and liberties of everybody with whom they come in contact, and have liter ally proved a curse to both services, but it has never been our lot to witness such a stretch of magisterial tyranny and arrogant impertinence as was exhibited by one of the Braidwood Bench (Mr. McKellar), on Thursday last during the Petty Sessions. During the hearing of a wages case, the evidence in which was of a very prosaic character, the proprietor of this journal, with a natural interest in the affairs of the world ex ternal to the walls of the police office, a weakness from which magistrates are not exempted at in tervals, was, as he had a perfect right to do, reading a newspaper, when he was rudely re quested by tlhe magistrate in question, if he desired to read the newspaper or go elsewhere....

" Twelve years ago-the bride was a young lady of twenty, the daughter of a wealthy mer chant in Washington, Pa In her father's em. ploy was a young man named Robert.-, who, the young lady being bewitchingly beauti ful, as in duty bound; fell desperately in love with hIer. She reciprocated the attachment, and they were both betrothed. Unfortunately the young lady's father entered his protest against the pleasant arrangement, and ac cordingly the young couple put off the happy day indefinitely. About a year afterwards ste received a most tomptihg proposal, which, urged by her father, she accepted, and to the eternal despair of poor Robert, was married. But alas for the poor bridegrooml I Scarcely three months had elapse...
PRESERVING POTATOES WITH LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 18 August 1860
PsER?veNo PoTATOES WITH LITlE.-It has been proved, by experiments made by shippers of potators thiat two quarts of powdered lime to a barrel of potatoes; placed on the top, so that it would sift thrbughl the contents, has a remark able preservative effect upon the potatoes, entirely preventingthe disease known as the potato-rot. It also prevents thetubers from sprouting, and keeps ihein citirely sound, althoughl they ' have to pass the equiltor twice on the voyage. This fact is very important to masters of sea-going vessels, upon long voyages. Carlyle says: Experience is an excellent schoolmaster, but he does charge such dreadfol wages. . .. : : :

It was from the first obvious to Sir M. Pete and Co that'the perpetuation of the differences be tweek their agent and the Government was likely coisoidcerably to prejudice their interests, both by leading to ultimate litigation and by de laying the completion of the contracts; and they were also convinced that the matters on which the disagreements had arisen were capable of a s:tiof~ictory settlement, althou~gh the work inight he attended with some ditliculty.
