COURT OF REQUESTS. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 23 August 1842

COURT OF REQUESTS. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald GENTLEMEN,—As it is proposed to make a   great change in the administration of justice,   by extending very considerably the powers of the Court of Requests, I call upon English- men to look with jealousy at the proceedings of the Legislature, and not lightly trust their property, and even their liberty, to the deci- sion of a court, where the verdict of a jury is dispensed with, and from which there is no appeal. Courts of conscience were originally instituted for the recovery of inconsiderable sums, where deep-laid schemes of fraud were not likely to be practised, or partiality to be exercised by the judges. But in proportion as the amount recoverable is increased, the danger to be apprehended from removing the safeguards of justice be- comes greater. I would therefore suggest   the following modifications of the intended     Bill. 1st. In order to preven...

NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 23 August 1842

    NEW CALEDONIA. Major Sullivan, formerly a Police Ma- gistrate at the River William, has published " A Prospectus for forming a British Colony on the island of New Caledonia, situated in the South Pacific Ocean, by a Company under Royal Charter, without causing ex- pense to the British Government," of which we have been favoured with a copy. There eau be no doubt that it would be highly advantageous both to this colony and the mother country were a British colony established in New Caledonia, and the recent intelligence that the French have taken possession of the Marquesas, renders such a step almost necessary. We are glad, therefore, to see that the at- tention of Major Sullivan has been at- tracted to this subject, and that he has reduced his opinions on the matter to writing, and is circulating them in the shape of a pamphlet. The subject is one of very great importance, and weil worthy the at- tention of tiie public. We shall take an early opportuni...

The Sydney Morning Herald. TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 1842. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." SURVEY OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 23 August 1842

The Sydney Morning Herald TUESDAY, AUGUST 23,1842. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I."   SURVEY OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Nothing could be more unscientific than the manner in which surveys had hitherto been made : they were all made by compass, and not by the theodolite.-Speech of Sir George Gipps in Council, August 16, 1842. We are not going to defend the Surveyor General's Department from the many loose, rambling, and we must say undigni- fied attacks made upon it in the debate from which we have taken our motto. It is not in our power to do so, even were we so inclined ; for, with one exception, we know nothing whatever of the facts. If one half of the statements then put for- ward is te be implicitly believed, it is clear there has been a degree of insubordination and an abandonment of discipline in that department of the public service, which, in these stern days of responsibility, we should have thought impossible. But   that such exparte imputations ag...
