DOINGS AT COCKATOO ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 September 1860
DomNes AT CocKAToo IsBLAND.-On Monday last a party of gentlemen, including the captain of the Jeddo, paid a visit to the Fitzroy Dry Dock, and in spected the prisons on Cockatoo Island. In the course of their visit, they had occasion to enter the dormitory over the calls, in which are confined three of the prisoners concerned in the late insurrection. The visitors were accompanied by one of the officers. They had scarcely entered the dormitory when their ears were shocked by the most fearful imprecations addressed to their cicorone. Imprecations were followed by yells-yells by language of the most demoniacal description; the hootings of the wretched men must have been audible ever a great portion of the island. We are informed that the party of visitors, panic-stricken, disgusted, hurried away from the prison as rapidly as possible. -Empire.

BULLEN V. HEALY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 September 1860
BULLEN V. ITEALY.-In this case, which was on for a debt of a few shillings, heard at the last Court of Requests, the plaintiff swore distinctly to the delivery of the articles for the value whereof he sued, and that he had never been paid. The de fondant, an old Irish woman, very voluble, but rather unintelligible, swore with equal positiveness and far greater vehemence, that she never got the goods. T'he case thus rested on the opposing testi mony of the plaintiff and defendant, but plaintiff was supported by an entry of the transaction in his book, and the Bench therefore gave him a ver dict. Hereupon, Mr. Bullen immediately receipted Mrs. Healy's bill for the amount, stating that his object was not the recovery of tihe money, but to maintain his correctness in the matter. VWe omitted to mention this case in our report of the sittings of the Court, but it.is deserving of a pass. ing notice, as such little incidents do not often occur. A GnAvE MATTERn.-Wo understand that a Governme...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 September 1860
TO TUE EDITOR OF TI?E rAMA EXAMINC . (Continued.) JosnuA-Well, Caleb, I don't know that the Gospel may be said to be the most expensive thing which wo pur chase, because I always imagine that theo relative value of an article should be considered in reference to the benefit we are likely to derive from it, and not always suppose that an earticle is valuable because it costs us much, or otherwise, should it cost us littlo. I certainly do not think that we should regard the Gospel in a profit and loss kind of way, according to the supply of that commodity in the market. The Gospel is valuable, under all circumstances, and to receive the truth in the lovo of it, is absholutely necessary, for man's present and future ha pinecs, as the preacher said this morning, "The Scripturo is a light to our feet. and a lamp about our path, and that it is profitable for the life that now is mid for that which is to comne." It is valuable, Caleb, and I do not want it for nothing, but I do not think ou...

PLAN FORan THE REMOVAL OF THE Mon MONS Frwo UTAII.-The New York Herald's special correspondent at Washington, writing to that journal says, with refrence to the proposed removal of the Mormons from Utah:-" As the first legislative step on the subject which has been privately discussed during the last six months, Mr. Morris, of Illinois, will urge the passage ofa joint resolution appointing, Mlr. Orr, of South, Carolina, General Domphan, of Missouri, and Governor Wood, of Illinois, commissioners to'negotiato with the Mormons for the sale of thleir poseessions, on the express condition that they remove within a reasonable time from the limits and jurisdiction of the United States. The Commissioners are to make their report to the President by the next session of Congress. The ground for this move ment is to prevent a recurrence of war and bloodshed, as the history of the Mormons in Missouri and Illinois shows that they cannot, owing to their peculiarities, live on terms of peace and g...
JAVA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 September 1860
JA VA. [FROM TIE SINGAPORE rEs PRESS, JUNE 14 ] BY the Dutch mail steamer we have Java papers to the 7th current. The accounts from Banjormassing, which are to the 12th May, _do not show much progress in putting dowin. the. insurrection. Several en counters had taken place between detachments of troops sent out in different directions and parties of the enemy, which generally ended in the latter being put to flight, hbut the detach ments in most instances ultimately fell back upon their entrenched posts, being too numeri cally weak to occupy the ground gained. The Military Commandant at Baujermasting is said to have expressed the hope of being able to re store order in the whole of Banjermassing within the space of six weeks from the date of his dis patches, but he is considered rather sanguine in his expectations, considering the large extent of territory over which the insurgents are scattered and the very limited military force at his disposal. Three steamers which had been dispa...
