No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 19 February 1859
:Of tlie mniany reforms whlich the new parliament Will be reqiied to give their most:serious atten ution to, none will demand more grave consideration, or more temperate deliberation, nor a greater exer cise of patient legislative wisdom, than the thorough practical reform of the Criminal Law, from the first stage in thie police court to the last step on the gallows. It is not that the statutary law is so defective, save in one serious omission which we shall discuss in its proper place, as its practice in its initiating stages from the first court to the trial Sbefore the Judge. We consider that practice a gross infringement upon the liberty of the subject, and dangerous to the life of the unhappy criminal. We more particularly allude to the highly uncon stitutional power placed by thle New South Wales Criminal Law, in the hands of one man, to be grand jury, prosecutor, counsel, judge, and con troller of the mercy of the crown. In the earliest days of the colony-in its un happy sta...

RELIEF JUST IN THlE NICK OF TuIE. TO THE .EDITOR OF TIIE KIAMIA EXAMINER. Sin,--I am happy to inform you of a changb which is daily, expected to take place in our neigh borhood by the appearance of another baker amongst us, and not before such was wanted, I assure you; for some years past this neighborhood has suffered much by monopoly in the article of bread, tile staff of life, not for a moinent to speak of the quality, that we leave the inhabitants themselves to make mention of.

And although Mr. Freeman may, by strength of purse, endeavor, if .possible, to crush him, I would say rally, round and prevent if possible the loaf being.raised 50 per .4ent. over the Sydney market, and preserve for yourselves a good article; but most of all I say, s&l'brt opposition a...

The remarks against Mr. Davis, I have no hesi tation in saying, are as false as they are malicious.
