THE STATE TRIALS. Monday, 26th March, 1855[?] [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 7 April 1855

THE STATE TRIALS. Monday, 26th March, 1855/ Henry Reicl, James M'Fie Campbell, William Mulloj, Jacob Sorenson, ancl John Phclau, were placed at the bar, the same indictment being read as in the pre vious cases, to which they pleaded Not Guilty. The Attorney-General said that the crime of which the prisoners stood charged had been so frequently explained in Court, that he did not feel bound to go over the ground again. The evidence against the prisoners was limited. It would not appear in evidence that they had participated in any of the occurrences of the 29th November and three succeed ing days, but that they were taken within the stockade after the firing, which, by in ference, would connect them with the conspiracy generally. He called upon those of the jury who had sat in former cases to consider these cases separate from anything that had preceded, and to con sider each prisoner's ease and their iden tity separately; and concluded by ex pressing his pleasure that these trials w...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 7 April 1855

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. By the City of Hobart we have received four days later news from England, through the Ocean Chief, which vessel had just arrived at Hobart Town, after a run of 72 days. The information received by this channel is of much importance. The acceptance by Prince Gortschakoff, in the name of the Gzar, of the interpretation of the ' four points ' agreed to by the Western Powers, holds out a hope of peace. Should peace be concludcd on the basis proposed, England and France will retire from the contest with honor. All will be conceded that they took up arms to obtain. Russia accepts the interpretation which the Western Powers attached to the terms of the treaty, and thereby acknowledges defeat. This is an important announce ment to Europe. The negociatiations do not suspend active hostilities.

In some cases, we are told, dis putes as to the right to certain claims, which, (now that the payment of the license fee is not strictly enforced,) already shows what we may have to expect, should the suggestion of the Commission of Enquiry, (to make the payment of a ' mining right' voluntary, to the exclusion from protection of those who may not feel disposed to make such payment), be adopted. As a matter of course, the latter class will have to defend their rights, vi et armis. We confes? that we can see no alternative. Great activity is being evinced by storekeepers, many of whom have established, or are establishing, branches in the immediate neighbourhood of these diggings.
