THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851

THE LAW. (From Dickens' Household Words. ) As a happy illustration of the certainty, cheapness, and expedition of the lingiish law, in upholding those who are in the right, we have received the following strange nar rative from an esteemed correspondent, who is himself a lawyer : — The most litigious fellow I ever knew was a Welshman, named Bones. He had got possession, by some means, of a bit of waste ground behind a public-house in Hogwash street. Adjoining this land was a yard, be longing to the parish of St. Jeremiah, which the parish trustees were fencing in with a wall. Bones alleged that one corner of the wall was advanced about ten inches on his ground, and as they declined to remove it back, he kicked down the br:ck-work before the mortar was dry. The trustees having satisfied themselves that they were not only within the bonndary, but they had left Bones some feet of the parish land to boot, built up the wall again. Bones kicked it down again. The trustees put it up a thir...

AN EDITORIAL DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851

AN EDITORIAL DUEL. (From Atlantic Sketches.

In this way 1 grew in esteem with my fellow-citizens, as well us in wealth, and was soon in a position to despise the calumnies and lies of Levi, the rival editor.

The Archdeacon of Perth had returned from Sydney in good health. 'A syreat uproar had been raised by the contem plated rise of the salaries of some of the public officers, and both the Perth journals are agreed in The colony has been favoured with fine rains, which had had the effect of making the feed spring a^ain for the cattle, and the ploughing and lamb in'' season seemed now to be likely to proceed fa vourably. Mr. Samson seems to be a thorne in the side of the Government, he appearing on all occasions in opposition to them in the debates in the Legislative Council.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 July 1851

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Population, Representation, and Transpor tation. — By the recent census returns, we find that in the. four colonies of Sydney, Victoria, Ade laide, and Van Diemen's Land, there are 403,224 inhabitants, distributed thus :— Sydney, 192,000; Victoria, 77,362 ; Adelaide, 63,700 ; Van Diemen's Land, 70,164. Taking the entire population of each colony, and including nominees, it appears that at Sydney one member is appointed for 3,555 individuals ; in Victoria for '2,578 ; in Adelaide for 2,625; and in Van Diemen's Land, 2,923 inhabi tants. Whilst the returns show a striking increase in the_ population of the other colonies, that of Van Diemen's Land has remainedalmost stationary ; a result which we owe to the continuance of trans portation. This colony has now been established 48 years and Victoria 15, and yet the inhabitants of the latter exceed those of the former by several thousand. The contrast thus exhibited between the rapid growth of one, and the slow progress ...

Country News. THE DIGGINGS.—OPHIR. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 24 July 1851

©mmttg Ns&## THE DIGGINGS.— OPHIR. (From the BatJiurst Free Press. ) ? The flooding of the Summerhill Creek has been a serious obstacle to the Ophir miners, and with the prospect of continued rain there appears to be no probability of a speedy change. The Canoblas, whence the sources of the creek are fed, have lately been covered with snow, from which, independently of the rain, a considerable supply of water may be anticipated. Some parties have been compelled to leave their ground in consequence of the encroach ment of the floods. A number of cradles have rocked their way down the creek, and it is more than probable that until the wet weather subsides, mining operations will proceed rather languidly. Several parties have been very successful, notwith standing all these disadvantages. Mr. Samuels, whois purchasing largely at these diggings, brought a beautiful specimen of gold to Bathurst a few days ago, weighing eight ounces 5 but when we reckon gold by the hundred weight,...

SYDNEY MARKET DUES. SurLLicoiix v. Ryax.— This was an action of trespass brought against Mr. Ryan, late clerk of the George-street Market, at the suit of a person named Skillicorn. Skillicoim, it appears, is a country dealer, and had more than once sold in Sydney without paying market dues.

The case was heard next morninc before the Mayor and' Mr. Dowling, when the clerk ob tained a verdict against him.1 Skillicorn alleged that this act was an assault and false imprisonment. Hence ensued the action. The case was tried before Mr. Justice Dickinson and a jury of four. After hearing the evidence on behalf of Skillioorn, his Honor. Justice Dickinson, called the attention of the jury to the 38th section of an old repealed bye-law, passed in the year 1844, which applies to parties who sold goods in the market, ...

FIRST FRUITS OF THE " PAPAL AGGRESSION." [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 24 July 1851

FIRST FRUITS OF THE ' PAPAL AGGRESSION.' (From the. Tablet.') The 'Papal Aggression' has already borne most wonderful and unexpected fruit. So singular is the issue, that worldly politi cians cannot be but struck with awe. A Government apparently strong has dis solved before it, and without a contest crum bled into dust. The proud Whigs, who began to make war upon the Catholic sub jects of the Queen with every human pros pect of complete success, have fouud them selves deserted by their usual allies, and ob ! jects of execration to their very friends. i Lovd John Russell has become impotent, his I Cabinet is broken up, and his radical allies m are denouncing loudly, and repudiating the m dynasty of the Whig family. m The Whig Ministry simply dissolves; it m is not. destroyed by a hostile opposition. It w perishes without a blow, save that inflicted H on itself by the criminal folly of its head. B Lord John Russell nnder.took to punish the B Pope, and. the weapon which he hurled in B...

FATHER MATHEW IN BOSTON. An extract from the speech of Father Mathew, to a vast multitude of people assembled to welcome him on the Boston Common :?— Benevolent Citizens of Boston ? Noble people of Massachussets ! Dearly beloved countrymen ! I regret that you have not heard the elegant address just delivered by Governor Briggs. It was one of the most eloquent I ever had the fortune to hear ; and it most cordially sympathises with you, every sentiment of it. I nave called you noble, people — not in the common sense of that term : but in the sense which designates what is natural in you — and gene.ious nature is ever noble. I have noticed everything in this noble city ; beauty crowded upon me, until I now find myself like the miser who dis covered the seven fountains frjom which ran pure gold. When he was endeavouring to catch what the one gave forth, he felt grieved because he lost what flowed from the other six. I feel myself placed in the same predicament ; and I will have to let g...

THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 24 July 1851

THE MINISTRY. (From ttie Morning Herald, Anvil 12.1 V\ e are as wise to-day as we were yester day as to the reasons which induced Minis ters and their adherents to oppose the mo tion of Mr. D'Israeli last night. The only cause assignable to this coarse of policy is the same which advised the Monarch from the Throne, at the commencement of the session, to acknowledge and com nisserate the distressed condition of the owners and occupiers of land, and in a few days after wards to refuse even an inquiry into the grievances which the Government had advised the Sovereign to recognise. The love of office, under any circumstances of discomfi ture or disgrace, which has ever been the 'distinguishing characteristic of Whiggery-— that is the cause of the opposition by Go vernment to the reasonable and temporate propositions of Mr. D'Israeli last night, when every other reasons — when loyalty to the advice tendered to their Queen should have demanded their concurrence with it.

Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 24 July 1851

)Er ?!#»&. The New 'Penal Laws.'— The storm is gra dually rising, and it will not be the fault of the Irish press if within the course of a brief week or so the old religious warfare, which had been slowly dying off' during the last 20 years, be not revived with its ancient virulence, strengthened by the long repose it had been consigned to since the Emanci pation Act became the law of the land. The Ro man Catholic journals — metropolitan and provincial — have all sounded the tocsin of war, and every nerve is to be strained to thwart, if not defeat, the ministerial measure, even at the risk of placing the reins of government in the hands of the mntt nit™ members of the Tory party. The Freeman de nounces in unmeasured terms the conduct of those Irish representatives who, by their votes in the late division, have placed ' the sword of persecution more firmly in the gripe of the political apostate' who is now ' Premier of England by the vote of Irish Catholics and representativ...
