LATEST EUROPEAN. WE cotiiiue our extracts from the Liverpol journalsol the 20thNovember. The Mrning Post saya : " Etrybody knows that the cause of the apfoiiehing winter session is (he suspennn of the Bank Charter Act, and tin a measure of indemnity must be intrJuced similar to those which on former occasions have received the sunctio of the Legislature. It must not, hoever, be supposed that, in the present of the great Indian crisis, noble lords ml honourable gentlemen will connaetheir attention to ruutter* con nectedvith the currency and financial positiot of the country. The Bank Charte Act, we conclude, will be re- ferred ) a new committee which sat last seiion, and that, after a brief dfs cussiot Parliament will turn to the eonsidration of the one great subject which/ar above all questions, even oí unana occupies the hearts and moves the sympathies of Englishmen."

ÍHE MERCURY I ..,, , . fppnusiiEu D.ur.sr.] .TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9,1858. THAT the present Jury Act does liol give satisfaction to the parties in suits .it-law, ¡s a fact of ohvious notoriety. Trial by jury, which, strictly speaking iß' among the strongest; safeguards o British liberty, fails of its just operation here. Neither plaintiffs nor defendant* now, go into Court with any seu.se of se- curity. It is true-as the preamble t( the Bill to projidefor the Formation oj a Special Jury List and for tlie Trial oj Case* by Special Jurie* declares,-tha " many, men whose names are in tin Jury Lists and Jurors' Books, are incom- petent, from defect of education and intelligence, and otherwiee, satisfactorily to try eases of difficulty and importance," -so true that we shall notmake compari- sons in order to establish it. They might be deemed invidious. " But, wlide we thus heartily commend the object aimed at by the Bill now under review, theic are some serious ob- jections to it in its pre...

NEW ZEALAND. NELSON. BY the Louis and Miriam, wc arc pla- ced in possession of Nelson papéis to the 6th instant, heimr four days later than those previously to hand. The Provincial Connell was opened on the 5th instant, hy his Honor the Superintendent. The Examiner says :- j His Hanor gave his opening speech'with due emphasis and discretion, and the reserve which their situation imposed upon the lirave and reverend seigniors within the bar, during its deliveiy, was evidently not participated in by tlie outsiders, who expressed their approba- tion very uumistakenbly at its close, and on more than one occasion afterwards their keen appreciation of what was passing before their eyes in a free anti easy manner that was very refreshing. Referring to the state of the weather and the crops, the same paper in its issue of the 9th observes :-" The t usual prevalence during the last three months, of strong south-west, winds, has we regret to say been productive of great mischief ka the grain ...
LIBERTY OF THE SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 February 1858
LIBERTY OF THE SUBJECT. A CASE has come under our notice one of the oppressive results of the " Convicts' Prevention Act"-which we feel called upon to bring before the pub- lic. The particulars, as we collect them from the Melbourne journals, and from our own enquiries, are as follows :- A highly respectable inn-keeper. Mr. Wm. Wells, the landlord of the British Hotel, Beechworth, Victoria, free by servitude, was arrested in that colony, on a warrant issued as alleged from this colony, and brought before our Police Bench on Wednesday, on bail, charged with being a convict illegally at large. Mr. Wells had been sent to this colony sixteen years ago, under sentence of transporta- tion, and was recommended for a con- ditional pardon in May, 1850. Before the ratification of his pardon reached the colony, he, like many others, went to Victoria, and acquired considerable property at the diggings. He then be- came the proprietor of the British Hotel, at the Ovens, where he carried on a lar...

EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF DOUBLE MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 9 February 1858
EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF DOUBLE MARRIAGE. &nbsp; An extraordinary case of double mar- &nbsp; &nbsp; riage was occupying the attention of the London police courts. A young lady was married to a Mr. Wills, and shortly after her confinement became affected in her mind, and was removed &nbsp; &nbsp; for treatment to an hospital. On her partial recovery she was informed by her husband that he had been previously married, and had a wife still living. &nbsp; &nbsp; This man persuaded her to marry his brother, who he said loved her, and she weakly consented to that course, and thus effected an incestuous union. A charge of false declaration has been brought against Wills, and the case has thus come within the cognisance of the police court. The 'Times thus contin- ues the narrative ;— "It was not likely that this second &nbsp; marriage could be long concealed from the lady's relatives. It soon came to the mother's ears. The mother...
