Original Correspondence. ASHMAN v ATTRILL. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 24 January 1857

Original Correspondence ASHMAN v ATTRILL. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE]     Sir,-I beg to make a few observations relative to the above case, a report of which appeared in your journal last week, under the head "A Frivolous Charge." You say, in the first place, that I made a complaint against Mr. Attrill, "for having erected various tents, &c., without the consent of the Municipal Council." This I deny. For I question the right of the Municipal Council to give such authority as much as I would question your right if you were to attempt to do so. The ground upon which Mr. Attrill has pitched his tents, erected his shed, &c., is a private road, to which I have contributed ten chains, and fronting which I have property to a large amount. A part of this road therefore is my property. The Government, as you correctly observed, have never proclaimed it to be a public road, and my summonsing Mr. Attrill to the Williams town Police C...

BLACK SLAVERY AND WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 31 January 1857

BLACK SLAVERY AND WTHITE. Industrial emggrants, intending to plant their future homes in the United States, have had a caution lately. Such facts as the following should be made known through the length and breadth of Ireland, and every European country which supplies laborers to the UnitedStates. The Riermond Examiner, a leading democratic paper in.Virginia,-and devoted to Mr. Buchanan'ss iter has recently issued th:bci 4wing paragraph : "Until recently, the defence of slavery has hlored under greatdifliculties, because its apologist (for they were mere apologists,) took half-way grounds.: They confined the defence of slavery to mere negro slavery. -thereby giving up the slavery principle, admitting other forms of slavery to be wrong. The line of de fence, however, is now changed. The South not maintalns that slavery is right, natural, and neces sary, and does not depend on dittrence of complexion. The laws of the slave States justify the holding of white men in bondage." Another R...

REMARKABLE DUELS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 31 January 1857

REDIARKABLE DUELS. Tn 1700 Captain Macrae fought and killed Sir George rnamsay, for refusing to diEmiss a faithful old servant who had insulted Captain Macrae. As soon as the servant heard that his master had been killed on his account, he fell into strong convulsions and died in a few hours. Captain Macrae fled, and was out lawed. In 1797, Colonel Fitzgerald, a married man, eloped from Windsor with his cousin, the daughter of Lord Kingston. Colonel King, the brother, fought Colonel Fitzgerald in Hyde Park. They fired six shots each, without effect, and the powder being exhausted, Colonel King called his opponent a villain, and they resolved to fight next day. They were, however, put under arrest, when Colonel Fitzgerald had the audacity to follow Lord cingnton's family to Ireland, to obtain the object of his seduction from her parents. Colonel King hearing of this; repaired to the inn where Colonel Fitzgerald put up. .Colonel Fitzgerald had locked himself in his room, and refused a...

I little thought when I made the following inquiry in my first contribution to your journal, " Does the reverend gentleman (Mr. H.) emulate the fame, &C.. of the Rev. Sydney Smith as the clerical buffoon of the Church of England ?" that these few words would provoke so much discussion, and that so many at tempts would be made to weaken the impression they appear to have made. First, we have Mr. MIedland with a strong and clear letter to try and remove the slur from himself and brethren; but recent writers would fain make one believe that the dust of a city has blinded me a little, and that this was not his object.

CROSSING OF MELBOURNE AND GEELONG RAILWAY.—In the Legislative Council, on Friday last, Mr. Lalor asked the Surveyor General—Whether the Government have given permission to the Geelong and Mel- bourne Railway Company to cross, at Green- wich, the Government-road leading from Williamstown to Melbourne; and also, if the said company are entitled to cross the Beach- road or Government Reserve to form a jetty into the Bay.

OHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTO WYN, Saturda, January 31st. ASSISTED IMMIIGRATION. AnouT three months' ago we published an official document, of the revised Immigration Remittance Regulations, which was framed for the purpose of affording the people of this Colony an opportunity of securing passages for their friends in England to Victoria at extremely low rates. Maniy persons in this neighborhood have since availed themselves of the advantages thus offered; and it is in consequence ofthe repeated applications which have been made to us for information upon tlistsubject, as well as froma convicion that the supply of labor in Victoria at the present time is by no means equal to the demand, that we are induced to offer a few remarks on assisted immigration. The subject of immigration has occupied the attention of the Government for a con siderable time past, anid it is evident, from the debates which have recently transpired in Parliament, that every encouragement will be afforded for the migra...
