THE PAST SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

THE PAST SESSION. (From the Maitland Mercury.) The history of the past and last session of the Legislative Council will afford an instructive lesson to the future historian ef this country, as manifesting the great influence on the fortunes of a colony which may be produced in a short time by one powerful intellect, directed by a resolute will, and yet the entire failure of that influence to secure lasting effects on the country, or per manent respect for the individual, unless a thoroughly sound judgment controls the intellect and the will. The closing scene of the last se'-sion of Council held in Sir Charles Fitz Roy's time, showed iv. the influence of Government still controlling the main course of events in the Legislature. Sir Charles made the will of the Council his guiding-star ; and by so doing he made the leading men of the Council^ the firmest up holders of his Government. Members of clear views on abstract principles of public policy condemned Sir Charles's government noi...

The Colonial Press. PENSIONS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

,,y Cjje Cflktiul |toi ' ' PENSIONS BILL. (From the Launccston Examiner.) Believing that the principle of pensions is . radically vicious, und that all experience establishes the fact, we are anxious that our readers should clearly understand the subject. Of. course we exclude from view any extraordinary public services rendered to Bociety of which the titles and estates voted to the Dukes of Marl borousih and Wellington, and more recently the gifts bestowed on the late Lord Raglan's family are acknowledgements. We con fine our attention to ultra-remuneration for ordinary services. Either, the salaries of officials are equivalent to the duties or they; are hot. If the latter is the case the situation will not be sought or inadequately filled, and the government will be compelled to advance the figure to ensure efficiency. If the former all extra remuneration is useless, and therefore unjustifiable — 'a baker is not paid for supplying bread after he has ceased to do so — a medical ma...

But a story to the full ; as'strange has recently come to light at the Dungarvan Petty Sessions. At present the names are suppressed, which renders the 'incidents all the more romantic ; but the facts are these : — A merchant of Dungarvan was coming back from the National Bank, when a woman standing at a door asked to speak to him. He excused himself no account of hurry ; but he was ultimately persuaded to go into the house and was conducted into a small back room on', the first floor, in which t...

The follow j,ar,e itaken from the Melbourne papers : — EXPEDITION AGAINST TAMAN AND PHANAGORIA. Paris, Thursday. — The Moniteur contains a .report from Admiral Bruat, of October 2nd, showing that an expedition against Taman and Phanagoria, in the Kertch Straits, had- completely succeeded. On the 24th Sep tember, Commandant Bonet left Kertch for Taman, with 10 gunboats, an aviso, and a steamer. On arriving off ? iPhanagoria, he threw some shells into the .redoubt, and. proceeded to disembark about a mile from the fort. During this interval the Rnssians. abandoned the place, and the allies took possession of it in the presence of a force of , cavalry from 600 to 800 strong, which retired immediately. A few shells were thrown among them. On the following day our troops were employed in destroying all the houses (in Phanagoria that could have been converted into she...

CONDITION OF THE RUSSIAN ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

CONDITION OF THE RUSSIAN ARMY. ? Of the .condition . of the Russian £.rmy encamped on the Belbek nothing certain is known in camp, but the generals have means of information, the action of which arid the results are not divulged. The pickets bring in some foot-sore, ragged, emaciated, sickly-looking de serters, who tell a sad tale of want and suffering. The last two who arrived at. General Simpson's were a Pole and a Russian, and both of them were in such a con dition as to excite trie liveliest compassion among our sol diers. Their clothes were, iri rags, arid the fragments of their boots scarcely clung to their feet. They came from the army, near Baidar, and . \hnv stated tliar the- whole of. the men were in the same state ; that all they had to eat was bread or biscuit and barley, and that they got no meat, and had only occasional issues of quarter rations of vodka or spirits. . The officers told the troops that the Allies were starving, and had no forage for their horses, and th...

.TEE BRITISH EXPEDITION.. ? (FJom the Times Special Corresdondcnt.) ?Camp before Sebastopol, October 5th. — The expedition seems settled, arid will assuredly sail this week, unless the weather should turn out very unfavourable. The light (not the hussar) brigade of cavalry have received orders to hold themselves in readiness to embark, and it is believed they are going to Eupatoria, Our destination is kept as close as possible, but every one affects to know it, points it out slily on charts, or mutters it into your ear. The excursion of the fleet, a,nd Us return a short time back, may have a deeper significance t\\f.n before, but if it were a ruse, the secret is now kiux^to the enemy: ;a We are told that this expedition is 'going to Uschtov, at , the entrance to the Bug, or to Kinburn, or other abstruce places, known only in England to the Hertfordshire incumbent arid a few fellows of the Geographical Society. I am almost afraid to say where I think we are going to, but with much de...

THE PLOUGHING MATCH. To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

THE PLOUGHING MATCH. To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. Sir — In looking over the Mercury of November the 19th, I sea a challenge from James Swan to plough any man from Bulli to the Macquarie River for £20 or £50 a-side. ? I took no notice of it at the time, for I thonght it was all froth, until I saw the challenge accepted by John Noonan and Adam Dennis. I thought then, sure enough, we shonld have a plough ing match in earnest. But no. James Swan comes to Mr. Brown's on the 1 Oth of January, according to appointment, with such a code of laws as no man but himself would hh ve thought of. I think this speaks very loud for itself and not much to Mr. Swan's credit as far as ploughing goes. Mr. Swan must plough at Jambovoo — he must have a new plough that has done no work — and strange bullocks, and the judges must be selected at Jamberoo, or else he will not ploug. If Mr. Swan cannot plough with the bullocks and gear that he is used, he cannot under these new arrangements ; but 'i...

COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. Mondat, January 7, 1856. (Before Mr. Shoobert.) John Thompson was charged by Mr. George Hall, of the Com mercial Hotel, with using abusive language to him and Mrs. Hall. Some difference having arisen about a trifling amount, that Thomp son owed to Mr. Hall, Thompson used the language, with which he was charged, also with challenging Mr. Hall out to fight.

. JUtaarni MUM ^iitdligetitt ; kiama. ' ' ?;? ;':/;'\ : ;'\''' §i ' [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] .. : The Electoral List.- — Mr. Owen has prepared the list of the electors in this part of East Camden. There are 514 names on the list. This number is greater by 215 than that of the list made out in 1853-4. We may attribute this increase partly to the' extension of the franchise under the New Constitution, but chiefly to the influx of population during 'the 'last two or three years. The list now lies at the Police Office for general inspec tion. In order to have the name of any person qualified to use the elective franchise put on the list, or the name of any dis qualified person erused from it, it is necessary that a, written notice to insert the former, or to omit the latter, be lodged with the Clerk of the Bench before the 20th of this month. It would, therefore, be advisable that electors, without delay, ascertain whether their names be on the list. Exports.— Our exports by the Ki...

COURT OF REQUESTS. MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 1855. (Before Messrs. Shoobert, Davison and Fairs.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

COURT OF REQUESTS. Monday, January 7, 1855. (Before Messrs. Shooberfc, Davison and Fairs.) All the cases heard, were ot no public interest, with the excep tion of one, that of Davies against Rose, the circumstances con nected with which we give in its proper order. George Hewlett summoned R. Allen for £2 12s. 2d., the defendant not appearing, a verdict was given for the plaintiff. Jane Thompson summoned P. M. Hoskine for £2 10s. The defendant pleaded not indebted. It would appear from the evi dence, that the defendant had at the last sittings of the Court but one, obtained a verdict against the present plaintiff, and thought that if Mrs. Thompson had any claim against him, she should have put it as a set off. On the other hand it was said, by Mrs. Thompson, that she did not dispute theDr's. bill, and she supposed that he would not object to allow her the amount of her's — and that the chief constable, who had endeavoured to arrange the pre vious debt, had been told by her that the a...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

THE WAR. Paris, 18th October.—By accounts of the 13th from     the Crimea, the advanced posts of the allies were on the 12th within five leagues of Baktchiserai. The Russians were retiring slowly. Everything leads to the belief that General Liprandi intends to defend the line of the Belbeck, and to rest upon the corps commanded by Prince Gortschakoff. A supplement to the Gazatte contains a despatch from General Simpson, dated October 5th, with an enclosure from Lieutenant-Colonel Ready. General Simpson writes—   "My Lord,— Marshal Pelissier having signified to me     his wish that the cavalry force under General D'Allonville, at Eupatoria, should be reinforced by some English cavalry; I at once acceded to his request, and have ordered the brigade of light cavalry, under Brigadier   General Lord George Paget, composed of the carboneers, 4th and 13th light dragoons, 12th lancers, and one troop of the royal h...
