JENKINS. V. ANDERSON. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

jeneins. v. andersos. . The Chief Justice : This was an application for a prohibition to restrain execution on tliree judgmsnts against Anderson in the Small Debts Court jurisdiction, at tho suit of Jenkins, pronounced by the Justices at Dathurst. The ground on which the writ was sought, is an alledged excess of jurisdiction, the plaintiff Jenkins having it was suggested, split one cause of action into three, contrary to tho express provisions of the Court of Requests Act, for the purpose of swing in a local Court. On the argument before ns in the last term two con flicting English decisions were cited ; and from tho very embarrassing and unsatisfactory way in which the affidavits on either side aro framed, we found great difficulty in collecting tho facts. We therefore reserved our judgment, which circumstances hava prevented us from delivering at an earlier period. It appears plainly enough that there have been devision in the whole four actions instituted against Anderson before ...

THE TRAMWAY TO DAPTO. (To the Editor of the "Illawarra Mercury.") [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

THE TRAMWAY TO DAPTO. ' (To tho Editor of tho ' Illawarra Mercury.') Sir — The appearance of a Government official at Wol longong, in the person of tho Colonial Architect, coupled with the mention of our town by Mr. Purker, ill the memorable water debate, have at length made it apparent that the fact of our existence is not ignored by the head of the Government. Various are the rumors which the arrival of the afore said officer hnve given rise to. The new line of road (Rixon's), the Wollongong Water Works, (bewaro of Water Work debates, Mr. Parker), the Bridge over tho Macquarie, the Breakwater at Kiama, are all within tho scope of his mission. But we hnve a full assurance that another, and not less important project, will form a prominent object of enquiry. Many very influential members of the Council being now fully alivo to the enormous expense of constructing railways for locomotive engines, are ready to support a plan which will shortly be submitted to them for constructing a t...

PUBLIC DEBTS AND THE RAILWAY. (To the Editor of the "Illawarra Mercury.") [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

PUBLIC DEBTS AND THE RAILWAY. (To tho Editor of the ' Illawarra Mercury.') Sir — In some of your late issues appeared two letters on the above subject, the burthen of whose song was, that tho district would bo ruined, the colony would be embarrassed, and the general progress retarded, in con sequence of the proposal of the Governor and Executive to borrow money for the purpose of forming railwavB. Now, Sir, however anxious we ought to be to avoid such a sinking national burthen, in my humble opinion we have much greater evils to contend with. The present system of selling Crown Lauds is evidently a far greater evil, for if its now unproductive immense Burface, were judiciously alienated, the nation, like many individuals who purchased ground under tho present system, although embarrassed iu the purchase of it, would soon find itself, like them, in a position to pav off that debt, whirl] it has perhaps unavoidably incurred. Tho ptesent wretched condition of the public roads of the co...

THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

Thursday. Several petitions were presented and new notices of' motion given. Mr. Parker moved that the House resolved itself into a committee of the whole to consider a supply to her Majesty, whereupon Mr. I'osrter moved that tho question ho amended by tlio addition of words complaining of the approbation ot moneys raised from the Government domain at Parramatta, the same not being included in the publio accounts; nnd declining to proceed with the estimates of supply till a re-adjustment of the public accounts wns made to i'.iolude the same. A debate of some length insued, in which Mr. Cowperr Mr. Nichols, Mr. Arnold, nnd other members spoke ngainst tho course which had been adopted by his Excellency, proceedings in the matter were defended by Mr. Plunke'tt Mr. Hay, Mr. Parker, Mr. Macartlmr, and other members.. The amendment was ultimately withdrawn. The House then went into committee of supply. Tho estimates for the several gaol establishments, 'for the Observatory, for the -Gover...

(To tho Editor of the ' Illawarra Mercury.') Sir. — Reading the report of the case Coleman v. Grifiin in your issue of 10r.li instant, heard by the bench at Wollongong, under 10 Vic., No. 10, and in which Mr. Owen submitted that defendant must he put out of Court by reason of his having split his cause of action, has induced mo lo forward to you for publication tho decision of the three judges on tho point then correctly raised by Mr. Owen. This judgement not only fixes tho law upon this very important head, but determines it upon another also, equally momentous, and as cases arise every day to which the principles herelaid down refers, your inser tion may prevent the ignoring of it on future occasions. I ma}' mention incidently that in the case Mtilhnir v. Kelly, heard at the same time and place, their Worships wore in error in receiving the evidence of Mrs. Kelly 11 if she be the wife of defendant,' for it is enacted by the 3rd clause of tho Act of Council, 16 Vic.

WOLLONGONG DEBATING SOCIETY. (To the Editor of the "Illawarra Mercury.") [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

WOLLONGOXG DEBATING SOCIETY. (To the Editor of the ' Illawarra Mercury.') Sir — There appeared a letter in your valuable paper some time ago, soliciting your assistance in the formation a Debating Society in Wollongong. Would you be kind enough lo inform me whether thero has been uuy further steps taken in the matter; or whether, like other local improvements, it has fallen to the ground, for that want of energy and spirit which seems to characterise the inhabitants of this end of the district. Will not the example of our Kiama neighbors stimulate ns? Are v.*e to read from timo to time, an account of the proceedings and the benefits they derive from such a society, and not use uny endeavors to draw out the talent of our young men. Surely there is talent enough among us to form a similnr society, having the same end in view ; namely, the improvement of the mind ; such is the object we aim ut, and I have no doubt many of our public men are indebted to such societies, which have done m...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

SOUTH A U S T R A L I A. Wo have Adelaide journals to the 24th ultimo. The Legislative Council wus making rapid progress with tho Estimates. Wo perceive from the report of the proceedings 111 tho Legislative Council, that a bill Inis been laid upon the. table of the Legislature for cheapening tlio fees payable on tho registration of land grants. Instead ot the sum now payable, the bill proposes to reduce the price ot a land '-rant to 5s., payable at the time of completing the purchase of the land. This reduction will, no doubt, meet with the approval of the country. 1 he upset price of land is 20s. per acre, and it was never contemplated by the Imperial Parliament- that artificial means should be resorted to tor the puspose ot enhancing tho minimum price. 'No doubt,' seys the Jiegister, 'the new bill will ba carried in Col111c.il.'' We fiutl the following in tho Register — Tiir. Forthcoming Harvest. — Wo aro informed that wheat is being cut 011 file Gawler River. Several section* ar...

The Australian Colonies. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

€\) 1 SustnUirm Cnlouitg. VICTORIA. We have papers to the 27th instnnt. The Acting Governor had assembled the Houses of rarliament, and addressed them in a long speech, which lias given great satisfaction. It embraces every topic of interest, but doubts are entertained as to whether the Ministry will be able to fulfil their promises om account of their great i.uuiber and the limited time at their -lisi)l)s\l. In the Legislative Council, on the 25th ultimo, the address in answer to the Governor's speech, was carried without any opposition beyond a few remarks from three cr four members, as to the omission of particular measures from the speech. Mr. Hodgson was elected Chairman of Committees, the vote being for Mr. Hodgson 17, for Mr. Thomson 11. In the Assembly 011 the 26th, the house proceeded to elect a Chairman of Committees. Thero were threo can didates, Messrs. Greeves, Snodgrass, und P-ke. The result was rather a novel affair. On the question being put that Mr. Greeves be elect...

Foreign. UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 December 1856

jtoigtt. ? UNITED STATES. Via England, we have advices from New York to the 2lst of August. Respecting the accident to the Royal Mail steam ship Arabia, the following letter, dated Halifax, August 18, has been published: — 'The Arabia struck on Blond Rock, on which there was about sixteen feet of water. The ship drawing twenty-one feet, going at full speed, struck her bow 011 the rock ; she then rose and slid over the rock, striking first at the bow, then under the boiler, then under the mainmast. The survey of the divers was not made public, but I learned that they found the false keel, the main keel, and the gar-board gone as far aft as the foremast, which is as far aft as they surveyed. A Boston shipbuilder, who examined the Arabia here, thinks that when she struck first she stove in the lower pirt of her stern, her keel, and deadwoods forward, and the fore ends of her bottom planking, theu rising on the rock she crushed her keel and tore it off smooth to the floors.
