MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

' ' MELBOURNE. (From the Herald Correspondence.) The case of the Schomberg and of Captain Forbes was suddenly terminated, in the hearing before the Supreme Court, by his Honor the Chief Justice, who directed the jury to acquit Captain Forbes of the offences laid to bis charge, ' there being no evidence to support the information inlaw.' This you will have gathered from the Melbourne journals forwarded by the last mail. The wisdom of the direction of the Chief Justice has been very freely discussed since the trial, and his conduct is almost universally condemned. The result of the trial has satisfied no one, not even the friends of Captain Forbes ; by the public it is esteemed a mockery of justice. Had a jury of his countrymen acquitted Cap ttiin Forbes after a patienf hearing of tho evidence 011 both sides, tlie matter would have been soon allowed to drop : but the sudden termination of the trial has revived all the old rumours that were afloat previously to tho institution of the p...

MR. DUFFY IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

MR. DUFFY IN VICTORIA. I It $as proposed at a meeting, held at Hockin's Hotel, j Melbourne, on Thursday, Feb. 21st, J. O'Shannassy, Esq., in the chair, to present to Mr, Duffy the necessary money qualification for a seat in the Victoria Legislature. The sum of £405 7s. was subscribed at the meeting1 towards the total amount required, £2000. At a. public dinner at Greelong* on the Monday previous, IVir. iJutty delivered the following speech, which we copy from the Geelong Adver tiser Mr. Duffy commenced by asking, was this Australia and the Antipodes ? From the generous beaming faces around him, and the cordial welcome, he could fancy him self at home again. One thing alone reminded him he was in a new country ; the chairman had thought it neces sary, to answer the imputation that he (Mr. Duffy) was coming among them to foster religious differences, and foment sectional divisions. At home, no answer would be necessary to such a charge ; there every one knew that Lis life had been spe...

MR. OSBORNE'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

MR. OSBORNE'S MEETING. We should not feel ourselves called upon to make any remarks on this meeting had it not been for what fell from Mr. Osborne, in reference to the report that appeared in our columns of the meeting at Jamberoo. Mr. Osborne was charitable enough to say that it was probably a misprint ; but we have no wish to take I advantage of that supposition. We hold to the sub stantial correctness of that report. We stood beside Mr. Osborne at that meeting, and heard him give expression to the,renark of which he complains. It was not as he put it to the meeting on Friday, but as follows : He said, 'he had been a squatter for twenty years, but a settler for a longer period. His squattages had not been profit j able to him ; and to other sources he was indebted for whatever wealth he possessed.' It struck us at the time as at variance with the opinion commonly entertained on his squatting pursuits — but it was supposed that he was the best judge. That he gave utterance to the s...

THE COMING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

THE COMING ELECTION. Tn our leader of last week we dwelt on ' Political Con sistency,' and urged the necessity of its observance alike in the gentleman seeking at our hands representative honors, as in the electors themselves. It seems unnecessary in this, the nineteenth century, that we should be obliged to go back to first principles, and offer lessons to our readers of the moral value of con sistency in the character of man ; but we trust the obser vations we made last week will have awakened the attention of those possessing the elective franchise, and lead them in the votes which they shall record at the coming election of members to serve in the New Parlia ment, as representatives of the constituency of East Cam den, to convince the world that our freemen have a manly and straightforward mode oraction, and that they scorn to risk their country's good by votes incompatible with political consistency ; and that in all matters having reference to the coming election, there shall ...

Miscellanea. NOVEL MODE OF ELECTIONEERING. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

3i!ia'dlmicn. NOVEL MODE OF ELECTIONEERING. The election for the borough ofM ? was close at hand; there were two candidates in the field whose influence were so nearly balanced that a neck and neck contest was expected. Under these circumstances every vote was of consequence ; the utmost exertion was used by the friends of both candidates to draw strangers out of their opponent's ranks. Among the staunch sup porters of Sir John B ? , the Tory candidate, was an irritable old captain, who had threatened to set the house dog on any one who might come to ask him for his vote for a Liberal. The morning before the election the old captain was working in his little garden, when he perceived a strange gentleman whistling along the walk. 'Ah! how d'ye do, captain ? Nice growing morning; peas coming up nicely, I see,' said the stranger, as he drew near. 'I beg your pardon, sir, but I really don't remember having the honour of your of your acquaintance; may I be permitted to inquire your busin...

A DIALOGUE BETWEEN AN ELECTOR AND HIS SON. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

A DIALOGUE BETWEEN AN ELECTOR AND HIS SON. Per favour of the Illawarra Mercury. . Part I. Son. — Has the dissolution of the Legislative Council taken place yet? Elector. — Not yet ; but the time is close at hand when it must. Son.— Why are some of the representatives in the Legislative Council called ' Government Sticks? ' Elector. — Because with tbem the Government thrash the people. non. — xs tne representative or i^ast uamaen a ?? uovernment Stick?'' Elector. — Yes ; and mercy is seldom, if ever, mingled with his castigations. Son. — Bnt, I suppose, in general his thrashings are not severe, since, whilst in Council, his ' tongue cleaveth to the roof of his mouth ? ' Elector. — You are greatly in error if you think I mean a ' tongue thrashing,' as the Paddies have it. Son. — What then do you mean by ' thrashing the people ?' Elector. — When representatives favour the Government more than their constituents, vote for a useless expenditure of the public revenue, and, in order to mee...

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. Sin — While reading the history of any nation or people, it is interesting to observe their change from barbarism to civilisation, where that change has been effected, and tho rapidity, or other wise, with which it has been accomplished. In the case of some, it has been greatly retarded, as, for instance, Turkey and Spain, especially in her South American colonies, while in the British Isles ifc has been much more speedv aud abiding. This has been partially attributed to the indomitable spirit, energy, and per severance of the Anglo-Saxon race, but principally to the influ ence of the Bible amongst them ; and doubtless it is so, as for example, who can read in Biblical history the touching narrative of tie history of the Israelites in Egyptian bondage, and the all absorbing announcement by the Lord of Hosts — 'I have seen, I have seen the afflictions of my people, and am come down to deliver them' — without being deeply penetrated jvith the co...

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mereurv. Sir — Though not a resident in your lovely district, yet from a variety of circumstances, all your affairs have generally interested me, and at no time more so than the present. A new era has dawned upon Australia, and a future is now before her, on the in auguration of which, will depend very much her career among nations, whether she will prosperously proceed in all the dignitv of an able legislature, supported oy a free and intelligent people, or be left for years to flounder in a political slough of anarchy and confusion. When so much, therefore, is at stake, it is incumbent that all who take an interest in our adopted country, should feel that along with the privilege of having a voice in the Government of the colony, there are also grave responsibilities attached to the duty. In nine cases out of ten men give their votes simply be cause they are asked for them in a persuasive manner, from pariy spirit, or from personal friendship, but co...

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury . Sir— The day is not far distant when we shall have reason to rejoice or regret, according as we make a proper or an improper choice of a man to represent our wants in the Legislative Assembly, under the New Constitution of Parliament. Among the numerous candidates who are seeking to obtain a seat in the Legislative Council, about 60 will be chosen in (i.e., elected), and out of that number the present Government will make a selection of about 20, which will most probably receive titles as lords, earls, and dukes, &c., which will continue, durante vita, during their lives. It becomes us then, as a community, and as individuals, to ask our selves the question, who is the man for us, to represent in a grace ful and commanding way that which will tend to our interest, before a convention of gentlemen ; who will neither fear the frowns, nor regard the smiles of any but of his own constituent ? If we depute a man who wishes to become our Re...

sijbimj ( Compiled from the Sydney Papers.) An Artful Swindle. — On Saturdry evening a man of res- ! pectable appearance, apparently of about 25 or 30 years of age, i took up his station near Mr. Gould's Post Office Hotel, York- i street ; observing a small hoy passing, lie requested him for a consideration to ' run over to the market and take a letter for him to the stall of Mr. Kippax, a poulterer, and to bring him in return what the aforesaid poulterer gave biin. The bov went as directed, presented the letter, which purported to come trom Mr. Gould, containing a cheque for £4 and an order for a pair of fowls, bear ing the signature of that gentleman. He received the fowls and the change out of the cheque for £4, the credulous poulterer telling him to take them to Mr. Gould. The boy on returning, not seeing the man who had employed him, took the fowls and change, as directed, to Mr. Gould, who thought tliere must be some mistake, but received them. On leaving the Post-office Hotel...

-®ite unit ikrti'jirs. THE KIDDY-SWELL. ; Chapter. IV. At tlie appointed hour of eleven o'clock, two figures ? climbed over tlie little gate that led into the Parson's 'orchard, -casting such, stealthy looks around, that if it had been in September instead of April, they might have been | suspected of a -design upon the apples. One was a-durapy I little man, close buttoned up to the throat — the other lank -and thin r-r-and to any one who had ever seen the resolute Captain Spong and the scientific Dr. Gargle, there was no mistaking them on the present occasion. A small carpet bag might have at first cr-eated a suspicion that they were intent on a journey, but a different tale was told when the Doctor took from it a pair of pistols, and laid a variety, of ?boxes and bandages, and surgical instruments, carefully on the ground. 'I half regret this business,' said the principal belli gerent, with the .smallest possible tremor in his voice. ' The fellow may, perhaps, come after all.' ' A...

Original l&ffri}. TO SARA. At morn, at ni?ht, in sleep, and in the stir Of daily occupation ; i When twilight's gathering shadows minister To lonely meditation ; In calm, in storm, in sunshine, and in gloom, Thy beauty is tho light, Thy love the heaven, whose distant nopes aiiume My being's starless night. And though I have no welcome at the hearth Where thy young smiles are bright, ?Where tny sweet voice, in kindness or in mirth, Is music or delight. , Ay, though I know full well that hope how weak, Which I have dared entwine; That ever I should clasp those hands and speak The words ' JS'ow thou art mine.' That e'er I should enfold that delicate form, Or e'er my lips receive She S3al of loving words, so soft and warm, Thine could so sweetly fjive. Still I indulge tlie melancholy p'easure, To think how I should bless Tho fate that makes thy beauteous self my treasure, My life, my happiness. ? And if— great heaven ! — another must rejoice In that most dear possesion, And hear...

Illawarra District Intelligence. KIAMA. THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S AUTUMN EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 3 March 1856

Sltatttm Ifetrirt SnMiimnt. KIAMA. [from our own correspondent.] THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY'S AUTUMN EXHIBI- TION.   On last Wednesday the Autumn exhibition of the Horticultural Society took place in Mr. J. Carruthers' new house. The weather being delightful, fair, and cool, many were induced to visit the show. From an early hour the various thoroughfares to Kiama were thronged with people clothed in their holiday apparel, and apparently eager to see the exhibition. A band of musicians were' in attendance, and their music engaged the attention of the crowd until all were allowed admission into the show building. The dis play was tolerably good, but owing to their being exhibited in sundry appartments, each small, and one, wherein the flowers were shown, so darkened with green boughs stuck up for orna ment, that, on coming out of the sunshine, one could, but with difficulty, discern the formation of a flower, or the variety in a bouquet: The exhibits did not appear so adv...

To tlie Electors of East Camden* GENTLEMEN.— At the request of a number of the Electors, I have the honour to offer myself as a candidate for the representation of the county, in the ensuing Legislative As sembly. I should not of myself come forward on this occasion ; but when, in the absence of other more influenzal residents in the dis trict, I was urged from various quarters to do so, I felt I would be wanting in my duty to iny adopted country if I refrained Irani answering the call thus made to me : for it is only, I conceive, b} such as are identified with the district by long residence, com munity of interests, and identity of principles, that it can be properly represented. In tlms coming before you, it is due, both to you and to myself, to state generally what my political opinions are, especially on those subjects which are likely pron.inently to occupy the attention ofthe Legislative Assembly thus, for the first time, called into existence.
