Wild, Blackwell, and Antill), copies of this obnoxious letter having been obtained and circulated; a public meeting was by advertise-' ment ilt:all the principal papers, and hand bills posted freely about, so nunmerous was the attend ance at the place selected, (our old friend Crisp, spacious " George Inn,") that anadjourn ment had to be made to the open air.

WRECK OF TWO VESSELS, AND LOSS OF NINE LIVES, OWING to the late tempestuous weather, it is our melancholy duty to record this week the total loss of two vessels in the very harbour of Port Jackson and nine lives. The following are the particulars of this melancholy event: The " Wanderer" left Launceston. on Wednes day last, and entered the Heads about half-past eleven o'clock on Saturday night, during a heavy gale from the south-west. The captain having, we suppose, great confidence in the sailing qual ities of the vessel, and possessed. himself of a thorough knowledge of the, harbounr, attempted to work her up,-but when off inner Middle Head, about twelve o'cloclk, she missed stays. nln -..0 .. sl? a n?d. unable to get the main-sail off her in time, her starboard bow struck, and it is supposed the vessel almost im mediately sunk At day-light-yesterday morning, the mainhtopmast of the wreck was observable from the :floating lightishipiwith: a man clinging to it; Mr. Petit, with grea...

COUNTRY NEWS. MARULAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 July 1848
COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) MAR?RLAN. THE people of this district are exceedingly desirous that the Magistrates would in future give directions to the Registrar of the small debts court here, to post a notice on the door of the Court House, intimating to the public when the Court for the recovery of small debts would sit; and also,' to mention in the notice when the last day for issuing summonses would ex pire, under the rules of their court. This is the invariable practice of every Court in the Colony. The Registrar of this Court resides at Bungonia, which is a distance of ten miles from the township of Marulan, having the du ties of clerk of the bench, the last mentioned place to attend to, as well as the duties of this Court; the consequence is that, parties have to ride or walk a distance of ten miles to Bungonia for summonses, "subpteneas, &c., all which. trouble Land expense might be obviated by the simple plan pointed out.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. HEADS OF THE PEOPLE. AN ATTORNEY AND GENTLEMAN BY ACT OF PARLIAMENT!!!" [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 July 1848
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. HEADS OF THE PEOPLE. AN ATTORNEY AND GENTLEMAN BY ACT OF PARLIAMENT!!!" AN article appears in a work; very recently pub lished in Sydney, under the above heading.--Mr Hugh Chamber, a very respectable Attorney, .(I believe), is the, gentleman who figures in the above-mentioned article as one of the " elite" of the profession in the Colony. I write not dis paringly of him, but the inference onreading the article in question, at. least . to the uninterested is, that the profession costs some 6 or 600 gui. neas to those gentlemen who serve their appren ticeships and are afterwards admitted members of the Supreme Court in this colony. Such is not the case-Irish and English Attorneys and Solicitors expend a much larger sum than even tliis, on being duly admitted members of the profession. Bi!t then, in Europe, there is a heavy stamp duty to .be paid. In the first in stance there is one hundred 'pounds to be paid into the, Stamp Office, in return.for- ...

The company began to assemble about eight o'clock, and at a few minutes to nine the rooms were crowded, when dancing commenced. The recherche dresses of the ladies were quite dazzling on the occasion -their other attractions it would be im pertinent as'well' as superfluous to dilate upon, as they baffled all description. At twelve, supper was announced, and the gentlemen led their blooming partners to a feast which, for profusion and excellence, reflected great credit on the wor thy host. Mr. Fedwicke did the honors as pre sident, and Mr. P. Dignam acted as croupier. After ample justice had been done' to the wines,. which were of the choicest 'vintage, and the vtands, which included every delicacy of the season, the health of the Qu...
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 July 1848
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. SI--A requisition signed by some twenty or more of the respectable inhabitants of the town of Yass, having been presented, on Tuesday the 4th instant, to the senior magistrate now residing in the vicinity, requesting him to convene a public meeting of the inhabitants of the town and district, at an early day, to take into consi deration the causes which have led to the post. ponement in the erection of the public bridge at Yass, for which a sum of money was voted by the late Legislative Council, some two years since. The senior magistrate so addressed has, it would seem, expressed his wish to take one whole week to consider whether he will or will not comply with *this reasonable request of the townsfolk i Perceiving, as one of the requisionists, no just cause for the worthy magistrate withholding the. immediate performance of what I hold. to be merely an act of magisterial duty on his part, I. beg leave publicly to enquiro of him, through: the ...
