ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER VERSUS W. MARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 1 January 1859
=ORIGINAL CORRESPONDII.ENCE. THE EDITOR. OF THE.KIAMA EXAMINER VERSUS W. MARKS. Being defamed ; we entreat you have compelled me. PAUL. SIR,-You have the reputation of being a man of cour- age, and I trust that in the present instant you will prove yourself such, and not a mere bully. A wise man has &nbsp; written that " he who utters a slander is a fool." To es cape these epithets it is necessary that you will substan tiate what sou have insinuated regarding myself. If you cannot do so, it would be mnore sensible to avoid such personalities in the future. Speak boldly, I ask no quarter. If you can prove that vanity instead of know ledge and good-will has prompted me in these afluire, you will do myself and the public some service in the ex hibition of such proof. But please to recollect that ' cannnot accept an editor's ipse dixi as final. Having re jected the authority of Popes, General Councils, Presby terian Standards, Weslevan Conferanices, and Episcopalian Synods, you ...

''Ilhe morn ing broke. thick and sultry, but this did not seem to weigh hiuch with the pleasure-seekers, who seemed de termined, even at the expense of a wet'jscket, to partici pate in.the sport offeredl for the day. The laces.being the chief object, little else was thought or spoken of,.and ".Johnny's Fermanah," (the rendezvous of.the :'sports" of Kiama) was one unabated scene of bustle from.9 a.ln , till the time when constable Hines makes his usual nightly call. About half-iast two o'clock the horses were sent to the beach, but owing to the lateniess of ebb-tide, it was found impossible to draw. them to the post for a start till near four.

HEAR BOTH SIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
" HEAR 1BOIT SIDES. We did intend stating our opinion somewhat freely on the Municipal Act, but a writer in the JSydney Morning Herald has so lucidly explained the advantages which that act confers, and so happily exposes the idle fallacy of the "no tax ation" cry that we prefer giving our readers the benefit pf that letter, hoping that the Herald and the writer will excuse our doing so. THE IMIUNICIPALITIEB ACT. ri-considering the question of Municipal Gbveroment there is a far higher principle in volved than that of more taxation. Unfortu nately, however, men seldom look beyond their own petty and immediate interests; the spirit of patriotism, the amorpatrice, is not sufficiently strong in the minds of most men, to induce them to look upon a measure eicher of i political or social nature with that broad and comprehen sive spirit which ought to characterise their view of every measure calculated to ameliorate the condition, or elevate the position of their fellow men. MIunicipal in...

Question rescinding of the vote for the withdrawal fromithe Estimates of the £14,000 for religious purposes. Mr. Martin made a very long speech, b ut would have spoken with more effect had he occupied less time, in moving the rescinding of the spoliation motion. Mr. Jones replied in op position, using the occasion to cut up Mr. Martin for late official and parliamentary conduct. Mr. Plunkett in support, spoke with his usual effect; and after a long debate, motion, as amended by Mr. Plunkett, carried by casting vote of the Speaker.

CROWN LANDS SALE, KIAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
SCnown LANDS SALE, KrAMA.-T-wenty-sevea lots, in the neighborhood of the Fox Ground, were this day (Friday) offered for sale; 25 were sold at. .prices ranging from £1 to £4. Several lotsworild puzzle a goat or chamois to find footing on; Jt they wore purchased, perhaps by persons who never hniraving seen them, did not dream that Government would be guilty of such an imposition upon indi vidual or public credulity as to offer perpendicular rocks for sale. It is high time the Crown land job 'bilig should cease. We should be glad to know why the land sales are not advertised in the Ezaminer as well in other papers of smaller local circulation? The purchasers of l1nd in and about Kiama are the most spirited and most extensive purchasers of Crown land, and it is unjust to them that they should either depend upon the chance of seeing these sales in some other paper, or of hearing of them through other cnannels. It is equally a marked dereliction of duty either of the Minister of Lands and...

THE "LIBEL" G'ASE! MILEHAN V. FULLEIR. The defendant's sister, a passenger per steamer from Sydney to Wollongong, had three small pack ages, one of' theni a bandbox; not wishing to carry them through the town, she left them with MIeehan who has charge of the store, saying she would send a servant for them, which on being. called for, leehan refused to deliver without the piayment·of one shilling each, which charge he, Meehhan, had himiself put on, after they had been placed irn his care.. Mr. Fuller thinking this an unjustand unjuistifiable demand,refused to pay, the other kept fast possession of the parcels, anigry words ensued, and defendant, in his anger at what lihe coisidered a gross imposi tion, said, " if Ipay you, you will put it in your pocket, and the company will never see it," or some such words; but as MIeehan had entered' them in the manifest, he had most satisfaotorily cleared himself from the ' libel' of such imputa tion; yet for this angry expression which could not...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
R.. eourrinig to the important: subject of "re trenchment'".touched upon in a former number, there is.one item on the estimates, viz., ",the Survey Department," which we would treat as O'Coniell proposed to do with the. national ':debbi, strike the pen through it." The power, of the Sirveyor-General, both direct and indi ::.reet to hinder local improvements, such as the opening of new roads, and to prevent or retard indefinitely, the sale of Crown lands, render that .. office mischievous in the extreme to local in terests, and highly injurious to the prosperity Sand a-hdvancemient of the colony; the evil is so great, and the cost so much greater than any advantage the country derives from the head of the department, that we hope the Select Conm mittee will deal with it in the above-mentioned summary manner. We see no necessity whatever for the two de partments, that is, that of the Minister for Lands. arid Public Works, and that of the Survey Department; the state and circum stances...
SHELL HARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
SHELL HARBOR. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] On Friday evening th 31st utimo, a public meet ing was convened to take into consideration some points in connection with the erection of the pro posed watch-house here--Mr. Thomas in the chair -the upshot of which was that a memorial should be prepared and forwarded to the Board of Public Works, showing the great desirableness which exists for a stone building in place of a wooden one, as contemplated by Government. The reasons advanced were-the difficulty of procuring timber as required; the great local facilities for a supply of suitable stone; the entire sufficiency of the sum (£200) placed on the estimates for the erection of the lock-up; and the circumstance of parties being willing to tender for its completion with increased accommodation. A grand plan of a more commo dious building was exhibited, which it was resolved should accompany the memorial.
