THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 17 November 1849

TBE ADMINISTRATION bF'JUSTICE. The! endless^ dismissals under, writ of habeas .corpus which- have .formed so remakable a feature-in the administration of justice by Mr.ia' Beckett, have drawn from the Gee .ontg A4vertiser;l\\e following remarks. We agree with our contemporary 'id thitiking that whatever scope fbr lawyer*like clever ness in picking out a flaw, these cases may present, nothing could more thoroughly deaden the energies of magistrates, clerks, and constables, than such a continuance of substantial justice being sacrificed to leg'a'l acumen. If this is to continue, and it is to remain so utterly impossible to construct a strictly legal warrant, we had better break up » our police establishment altogether, and' allow our criminals to Tun riot at once, without deluding and' troubling 'ourselves with the farce of any ?attempt at pun ishment or prevention.- ;The, Advertiser says.:—;-1' :?.??'? \\- -??'?': ?'- ?-t'lii ^'^?i^v!1; ?* 'A case in point (and- it/is' neither '''tHe...

IRISH PEAT.—CURIOUS DISCOVERY House of Commons, July 27. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 24 November 1849

IRISH PEAT.— CU RIO US DISCOVERY House of Commons, July 27. O'Gorman Mahon wished, he said, to call at tention for a few moments to a subject which would be found to be of great im portance as regarded the development of the resources of Ireland. The facts to which he which he wished to call their attention were stated in a letter to him from an emi nent chemist, and who averred that peat was, with. a very trifling expense in manual labour, capable of producing carbonate of ammonia, soda, vinegar, riaptha, candles, camphine oil, pitch, tar, common oil, and gas. This, he maintained was one of the greatest discoveries of the age. It appeared from the testimonies of several persons that the Irish peat was capable of producing oil of a superior quality — quite equal to sper maceti. That which at present cost from £i)0 to £95 a ton, the manufacturers of this country could now have for £4.0 a ton ; the ioditie, which now cost £17, could be pro cured for £5 j and an equal reduction ef fect...

Sydney and Country SJows. MULTUM' IN PARVO.

The driver, on being liberated, made the best of his way to Goulburn, and had hardly reached it when one. of his wheels came off. It may appear singular that a gentleman named Waugh wa3 suffered, only a few minutes previous: to the robbery, to pass along the same road unmolested.— The - same day an inquest was held. at Goulburn; on the body of an infant, who, in the absence of its mother, for only a few minutes, met its death by falling into a tub of water, not above fo...
