THE LATE AFFAIR OF HONOUR. WE had not space in our last number to make any comment upon an affair which has obtained much publicity, between Alderman Macdermott, J. P., and the Hon.

The latter gentleman having in his place in the Legislative Council, used the name of the former in a way which lie deemed offensive and un-calledfor, he sent a friend, Dr. Macfarlane to request a peaceful ex. planation, which the hon. gentleman con temptuously refused; and giving for a reason, in addition to his privilege as an M. C. "that Mr. Macdermott was not his equal," q. d.

FRIDAY. His Honor Mr. Justice Stephen took his seat on the bench a little after eleven o'clock. William Holmes, labourer, late of Sydney, was placed at the bar on a charge of firing a pistol in Slay last at John Harrison, shopkeeper, at the Sorry Hills, with intent to kill. The circumstances of this case have been so lately before the public that it is unnecessary to give a detail of them now. Suffice it to say, that the crime with which the prisoner was charged, was so clearly brought home to him by John Harrison; the person fired at, and Jane Harrison, his wife, and John Pearce, Chief Constable, as to satisfy the jury of his guilt, who, ofter a short consultation, returned a verdict accord. ingly.

IRISH STATE TRIALS.—THE SYDNEY SYMPATHISERS. "THE OBSERVER." [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 6 July 1844
IRISH STATE TRIALS.-THE SYDNEY SYM1PATIHISERS. "THE OBSERVER." WE saw, for we can hardly, say we read, with sentiments deeper if possible than dis gust, three or four columns in the Observer, of Thursday last, of matter which'we know not how to designate, without using lan guage such as we shrink from-it is not argument-it is not modesty-it is not decency-it is not truth, but something nearly antipodean to all these. The writer begins by saying, "his readers are aware of the decided Pro testalit principles with which this journal is identified." This may be very luminous to the writer, but the dark side is turned to us-to our grasp of thought it is all mystery. We do not know what " Pro testant principles" are, orwhether there are. such things at all, even thongh we spent many years amongst those who are so called, nay were of them ourselves : We have enquired into the thing diligently, but could never understand it: a protest is a solemn denial-a Protestant or pro tester, is one wh...
