English Extracts. THE DODDINGHURST MURDER; [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 31 January 1851
English Extract«. THE DODDINGHURST MURDER; Thomas Drury was brought up on Tuesday evening, before Mr. Leisher, one of the county justices, and Mr. C. C. Lé wis, the coronerÍ who also acts as clerk to the bench of magistrates. Mr. Leisher hearing from Mr. Lewis that his investigation had been adjourned for the purpose of receiving some important facts in relation to the tragical affair, determined for the present to postpone the examination. The prisoner appeared little concerned at the awfnl position ia which he was placed. He was respectably attired, and there was nothing in his looks or de- meanour that would indicate the revolting ferocity with which he was charged. He seemed in cheerful spirits, and it is said freely conversed with the officers who are appointed to watch him; but never alludes to the crime with which he is charged. The only person who has been allowed to see him is his father. Every endeavour of the police to trace the woman during the iaterval of the prisoner's...

VAM DIEMBN'S LAND. THE STATE PRISONERS,. ,. "".'. From the Cornwall Chronicle, Jaw. 15. We grieve to pain our readers by the following account of the treatment of the unfortunate vic- tims sent by Sir W. Denison to Port Arthur. Those Mho know poor Mr, M'Manus' gentlemanly sensitive spirit, will sigh that he should suifer tho indignity offorod' him by such a heartless, cruel gaoler. Tho only gratification afforded them is, that his indomitable spirit contemplates with con- tempt the suffering sought to be heaped upon him. Mr. O'Dogherty is not known in the town -his fate, however, is interesting-he has much commisseration. "Peor O'Dogherty is in a hard labour gang, employed splitting shingles, and it is surprising his manly spirit permits him to perform the du- ties allotted to him, so cheerfully, but he knows it is no use in kicking against the pricks. " Terence Bellew M'Manus is also, in a hard labour gang, carrying timber on board the Vigi- lant, which vessel is taking in a cargo ...

HYDRO-CARBON GAS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 31 January 1851
HYDRÓ-C ARBON GAS. THE following extract from the Mahcîies ter Etajniner, of 14th September, 1850> will, we have no doubt, be interesting to our readers, as the subject of Hydro-car- bon" Gas is now occupying considerable public'attention.-ED. E. WATER GAS AT SOUTHPORT.-Thc very important subject of obtaining a supply of cheap and good gas, free from the usual con- taminations of sulphur and ammonia, has for a length of time engaged the attention of the first scientific men of our day, who suggested manifold improvements, some of which have been valuable ; but, as their whole efforts were directed to neutralise or absorb the obnoxious compounds inevitably contained in all gas prepared from coal, they have been only par- tially successful-much of the contamination still remaining, in spite of every precaution. It seemed essential that, to obtain a pure gas, . a pure material should he employed ; and, sceptical as we have been as to this being ob- tainable, or that any substitute f...

News from the Interior. MAITLAND. THE COTTON EXPERIMENT.-During the last few days we have bad the pleasure of inspecting some growing crops of cotton, grown from the seed imported by S. A. Donaldson, Esq. The first piece we saw was ih the gardon of Mr. E. M'Dougall, the site being the level land on the bank of the Hunter, sandy, but rich ; Mr. M'Dougall had sown a good deal of seed that failed, from unfavourable weather occurring, . and the piece we now saw was what remained, nnd we understand was* the seed No. 1, "Owen's" Ordinary." The , plants looked very green and flourishing, but the rows showed many vacant places ; some of the plants, were just coming into flower, the largest plants being then about 3¿ feet high ; the promise of produce,waschen. moderate.-~TTtié next we examined was on the farra of Mr. Scob hie, Oakhampton road. Mr. Scobbie's farra includes rich and moist lagoon land (that is, hind formerly covered with water, but now dry, nnd likely to remain dry Unless an ex...

The drunkards list exhibited the names of six votaries of the Jolly God-three of whom, with shame be it recorded, were of the softer (!) sex. William Adams, remanded from Tuesday last, was sent to take his trial at the Supreme Criminal Court, for an attempt to commit a capital offence on the person of a lad named Mountain. Shadoch and Howell for the alleged robbery upon Jackey Jackey were discharged from cus- tody, the testimony being defective, and the evi- dence of the aboriginal inadmissible.

THE EMPIRE FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1851. IS IT A MECHANICS' INSTITUTE? [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 31 January 1851
HIE EMME. FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 18fil. IS IT A MECHANICS' - INSTITUTE ? It is admitted on all bands that Pub- lic Institutions, bo their objects what they may, ought to be,under"such management as shall inspiro confidence in tho public mind. And if everybody makes this ad- mission, surely nono will deny that an institution specifically designed for popu- lar educational purposes, ought, in the most rigid sense, to bo under such man- agement. AV" I icu tho affairs of any pub- lic budy of this kind are suffered, by apathy or by any fortuitous influence, to fail into the bands of a mere Junta pr Clique, the true functions of it become' ^s gbod' as suspended, The most perfect freedom of choice should exist, to secure a healthy periodical change in the diréetory of such body. This state of active purity, so to speak, is necessary, under all cir- cumstances, to the vigorous growth and expansive usefulness of such Institutions, and it is so in an especial degree in a community like Sydney.
