Sabbath Desecration. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 October 1856

Sabbath Desecration (From the Tines) There are ponds which will bear drawing about once in five years, and the process is very exciting. This is about the interval at which the British public will bear a good brisk agitation. The crop is rather an exhausting one, but the soil is generous, and will bear it without utter desolation. Not to commit ourselves to the opinion that the object lias always been in proportion to the zeal with which it has been prose cuted, we must confess that the old adage of ' great cry and little wool' is fulfilled in the present instance. Here is nearly the whole population of this isle, the Church of England, and all the sects — for there are many —towns, parishes, chapelries, congre* gations, stewartries, associations, vicars, churchwardens, schools, presbyteries, office bearers, teachers, a whole column of them in our yesterday's paper alone — sending earnest petitions to Parliament not to allow the opening of the Crystal Palace, the Na tional Gallery, ...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Inquirer and Commercial News." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 October 1856

Correspondence. As a general rule,we wish it to be understood   that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of the "Inquirer and   Commercial News." SIR, — Soon after the arrival ol His Excellency Governor Kennedy, he, amongst other deductions, thought fit to dispense with the protection of the native police of this and other parts of the Co- lony. However, the means at his disposal were then very limited I admit; but I find in the es- timates tor 1857 a considerable increase under the head of police, and I naturally conceive that there is, with the additional taxation, means to replace the native constables at the most remote of the out districts. Now, Mr Editor, I happen to live in one of those out districts, where only one so- litary policeman is stationed, whose duties are twice as heavy as those stationed near the towns ; for instance, having an area of 60 miles by 30 to patrol, and duty to pe...

John Clarkson, charged with house-breaking, and stealing a pair of Wellington boots, and wearing apparel, the property of William Blower, at the Canning. William Blower, sworn, said, — I am in the ser- vice of Mr. Edward Middleton at the Canning; in the month of September last, I and my wife slept in a hut in Mr Middieton's paddock, about one-quarter of a mile from his house but took our meals at his house; when I left my hut of a morning I used to fasten the door with a padlock ; on the 20th Sep- tember last, while I was at Mr Middleton's, a native woman informed me that my hut had been broken open ; in consequence of what she told me I left the sheep and went to my hut; I found that some boards which I had nailed on to the top of the door had been wrenched off so as to leave an opening sufficient for a man to get in; I got in myself by that opening and fonnd that my box...

The room was tastefully decorated, and die presence of the Pensioner Band tended to enliven the scene. Upon the arrival of His Excellency, the President Mr. Clifton, read the customary address. After a few introductory re marks, having reference to tbe former show, Mr. Clifton proceeded as follows: — And if tbe vegetables exhibited here this day do not equal these of the same sorts, which on every market day arc to be found in Covent Garden, the Committee consider that they afford abundant proof that the soil and climate of the colony are In a high degree, favourable to the growth of culinary vegeta bles of all descriptions, and are most creditable to the growers and exbU...

Saturdau, October 11. MR. CLIFTON, before proceeding to the order of the day, wished to ask his Excellency whether the member for Perth or Fremantle had resigned nif seat in that Council. He had been frequently absent at the last session of Coun cil, and yesterday and that day had also been absent from his post, notwithstanding that an important commercial measure was to be brought forward. If he has not signi fied his intention of vacating lus seat, he, (Mr Clifton) begged to give notice that, in that gentleman's presence, he should ask him whether, after expressing his opinion at a pubUc meeting that he was the only person in Council competent to discuss matters affecting the mercantile inter est, and continuing to absent himself when so important a measure as that before the Council was to be discussed, he intended to vacate his seat and allow another to take his place. THE GOVERNOR stated he had received no notice that this question would be put, but, in answer, he observed that...

Relative to Mr Carter's essay, he states 'that by this unjust and unallowed act the writer is not entitled to present any essay for competition ; it amounts to nothing less than a fraud, which has no precedent with any honourable society ;' and that, ' if the views which the writer takes of the subject be correct, then, as an axiom which can not be disputed, Palmam qui meruit ferat is en...

You will remember that, on the occasion to which I al lude, two Bills were laid before you, one to 'enlaree the remedies of creditors against the persons of their debtors,' and the second connected with the same subject, 'a Bill to provide for the relief of Insolvent Debtors in custody, and for the rateable division of all the property ot Insolvent Debtors among their Creditors.' Finding that there was considerable opposition to the principle of these Bills, and little prospect of their being passed with that degree of unanimity necessary to give weight to so important a mea sure, i, with the sanction of the Council, windrow them.
