THE "GREAT EASTERN." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
TI?iE " GREAT EASTERN." The public were taken not a little by surprise by a startling report uipon the GredtEastern, signed by Messrs: Bayley, Patterson, and Jor dan, which', appearcd in the columns of the Times on the 28th of November. The docu ment is dated as far back as 18th October; and was forwarded fronm Piris. by an anonymous shareholder. :It embodies . the most serious eharges against Mr. Scott IRussell. "We may remark generally,, says Messrs. Bayley, Patter son, and Jordan, " that, with the exception of a'few cibins the accommodations are by no means equal to those of at first-class .passenger steameris suh ais Cunard's .line, or the Royal West India Mail.steamers, but are very inferior "=materials, workmanship, and furniture." The rest of.the 'rieport depicts something as different from the conception Which we had formed of various other portions of the Great Eastern, as does its description' of her cabin accommoda tions. If we 'ar to rely upon the statements it contains ...

ON the 19th of November, the Court,;consist ing of the Judge Ordinary, Mr.: Baron 'Bihm-n well, arid Mr. Justice Byles, hearid the cas of Macdonald v. Macdouald. This was :a petition put in by a wife who charged her husband with adultery and desertion; ' ' Dr. Phillimore applied to their lordships to allow the petitioner,toqprove r- portion of her case by affidavit.. She was in very stiraightened circumstances, arid could not afford the.expense of bringing witnesses from. Australia, ,'where the adultery charged was committed, and where the husband still lived. Their lordshiips refused the application; on tlhe grounds, that. the. respopndnt. had. no :opportuiity of cross-examining tlie wiitxes"cs viva voce, and that the court would not be able to cross-examine them if they should think it necessary, and that no order had been made for proving the case by .ifidavit.

MORUYA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
iOiouYA.- M1r. Surveyor llowlhnd:l paid us a fly ing visit last week. and, jiidging from'his manner. I ai iincliefied to believe that he entertains anything but a favorable opinion as to .the formation of road between Araluen and Moruya. Hisimpressior evidently. is that such a road, if not utterly imprac. ticable, would at least involve very great expense. I ccrtaiily'mnist acknowledge that I fully agrec with him. I believe that Mr. Rowland is in tfavo of somie moderate gi"rnt of money, to be expended in iendering the piesent trrek wider and less dan. gerous than it is fit. present, and I have no doubt thait an allowance of some £15 or £20 per nmile would answer the purpose unimtil the question re specting the practicability and propriety of making a' regular road is decided. Business is very dull at fihis place, and a great quantity of the wheat crop was been utterly destroyed by the heavy and con. tinuous rain.

SOCIAL EVILS.—DRUNKENNESS. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
SOCIAL. EVILS.-DRUNKENNESS. [COMMUNICATED.} . As mars journal is likely to exercise some, influ ence for good or evilon its readers, it becomes us to point out those evils which retard our progress, and give timely warning of coming danger. Our search for such abuses need not, unfortunately, be' a long one. They are obtruded upon our attention, nd we cannot avoid observing them, though we were willing. Whatever may be the state of other townships, near or remote, our hands are certainly. not clear enough to warrafit us in casting at them the stone of reproach. At present we beg to call the attention of our readers to one of the most flaigrant and .destructive of these evils-that of drunkenness. Much has been written and more spoken respecting this evil ;' but notwithstanding' of all our'writing and speak ing, it is still working fearful ravages throughout this colony. Can anyone deny, that it is,' considered merely in a social point of view, an enormous evil ? Although a state of re...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA. EXAMINER. Srm,-If you or any of your readers can inform the inhabitants of this district whether it is the duty of the Coroner to hold inquests on Sundmhay or not, you will oblige myself and others I think it is a most disgrace ful thing to have a corpse woiting for two days for a coroner, but untfortunately it has happened here two Sundays following. Our late departed neighbor at Janm beroo was lying at Shellharbor from Saturday night until Monday at noon, which, if our Coroner had done what I consider to be his duty, his bereaved relations could have had him hone and performed tlhe last sad rites at their own house to thohr satisfiction. But tihe other case is still worso : the remains of the two poor children at Broughton Creek were kept from Saturday until Monday waiting for the Coroner. A NEAR RELATION.

DEATH BY DROWNING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
DEATH BY DROWNING. — On Monday an inquest was held on the bodies of two children who were drowned on Thursday evening, in Broughton Mill Creek. It appeared from the father's statement, that about 3 p.m., the children ran into the house and shouted that the water was running down the Blind Creek out of the main creek ; their father, then suggested to his wife to cross over the Blind Creek on to the rising ground, and each took a child by the hand and another in each of their arms ; and as soon as they got into the current they were both washed off their legs by the stream ; the father, whose, name is McCaughey, scrambled out and secured the little boy, which he held by the hand, and immediately looked to see where his wife was — when he saw her she was struggling amongst a lot of timber. He then rushed to her assistance, and before he could extricate her from the logs he had to tear the clothes off her back. Both of the children that they carried in their arms were taken down the str...
