SMALL DEBTS COURT. JIpNDAY, JlAIiCn 3rd. (?Before Messrs. Davison, Shooberfc, and Pairs. Y Micliael Head v. John Head. — This was an actio a to recover the sum of £3, being the value of a fence, which, it was alleged, the defendant had un lawfully destroyed. This case was adjourned from the previous conrt, to allow an opportunity for a witness to ascertain whether the fence had been put up at the place agreed upon. Mr. Owen appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Rogers for the defence. The parties in the c;ise were cousins, between whom a difference had arisen, which their mutual friends had endeavoured to arrange, but without any permanent result, and they lived on very un* friendly terms with each other.

JERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856

JERRINGONG. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The all engrossing topic ot the day is the forthcoming election, and various are the surmises, as to which are the men we are about to send to Parliament. But it is generally believed, that; East Camden will not be the model district of sending two repre- sentatives that will both pull together when the interests of the people are called iu question. Mr. Marks and Mr. Osborne certainly are the favorites, but many of the electors appear dis- satisfied, that they have not as yet received a visit from some of' the candidates, more particularly from C. Ransom, Esq , of Kiama. But as there is to be a meeting of some of the settlers in and around the township, to assist each other in repairing the road at the Swamp, and it is expected that all the Candidates will be there to give a lending hand, and also to make themselves ac- quainted with this locality. It is therefore to be hoped thats Charles Ransom will not be behind hand with the crowd. Afte...

According to German authority the Russian ' forces' in the Crimea are now ISO, 000 men. General .
