ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE MESSRS. BLACK V. RITCHIE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. -4---- T.HE MESSRS. BLACK . RITCHIE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. Sm,-Understanding that this case is about to go to the supreme Court for "settlement, " you will oblige one disinterested, by publishing the following remarks upon the merits of the case. My intention is, if possible, ere it be too late, to warn the chief actors in this tea-pot tempest, of the dangerous ground upon which they are about to tread, having known and respected the gentle- men in question for many years, it is to be hoped that they will not consider me as an impudent intruder, but as one who wishes all men to live in peace. Already have we sunk too much of our money in foolish litigation, in fact have become notorious amongst the "sharks" of King-street, who it would seem are ever ready, upon thhe most trivial circumstances to fleece us of our last sovereign, and will undertake to sustain the most absurd charge so long as our paddocks contain a cow or a bullock. Thle leading...
SHOALHAVEN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
SHOALHAVEN RIVER. . &nbsp; &nbsp; We have been informed by a gentleman of un questionable veracity and worth, that large trees have been lately thrown down the banks and felled into the river between Bamarang and Burrier. This is a very serious and punishable affair ; the river is the only high road to the markets; nothing is so calculated to impede the progress of vessels, and in time, completely obstruct the navi- gation, as logs and trees, with all their branches on, lying across the tide-way; it is by such means that the various deposits are collected, and sand banks formed; it is therefore absolutely necessary that until thle district council shall have been forncd, some competent person should be im medittely appointed by Government to look after these wi~fl-l.hstvuttionists, not only relating to this river, but also to the Crookhaven and other navigable streams. We know of no one more competent to discharge this duty than Captain Sayers of the Nowra steam tend...

THE GREAT LIBEL CASE!!! BLACK V. RITCHIE. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
THE GREAT LIBEL CASE ! &nbsp; BLACK V. RITCHIE. &nbsp; Surely the comet. must have exercised some mischievous influence in exciting the spirit of litigation in a. young man who earns his hard crust by the labour of his hands and sweat of his brow, to rush him into a trumpery action for libel against a neighbour and friend, for a few hastily written words, which his own very intemperate language and very injudicious, ag gravating and discourteous manner provoked, the whole affair from beginning to end, is of the most trumpery character, originating in a dif ference of opinion about ten shillings for a few edgings, which being sued for in the small debts' court of Kiama, and which never should have been sued for or disputed, but should have been amicably settled by arbitration. Some say that jealous anger was the original cause of the plaintiff seeking a cause of quarrel, that a fair lady preferred the fine portly vigorous healthy looking person of the Ritchie and trea...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 8 January 1859
TO TIE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA. EXAMINER. SIa.-Permit me to direct your attention to the fact of closing a public road which has for, many years been an open thoroughfare. I allude to the road leading from Nowra past Worogee, and con- necting the settlements at Nowra Hill and Tamarang with the township, and river navigation-and also leading directly to Ulladulla ahd the entire southern coast. This glaring outrage on public rights has been effected by a gentleman Wvho under cover of purchase has taken on himself to shut up the road, and thereby seriously inconvenience the inhabitants. After paying dearly for their land they find them selves precluded from their outlet to the only avail able market by the usual direct route, and their pro perty thereby proportionably deteriorated. And all througli the avaricious principle of one man, well known indeed, but not very popular inthis District. I mean Alexander M' Kay Esq. J. P. and ci-devant C. C. L. SOn' behalf of the parties thus injured, a...

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 15 January 1859
NGtIISH ANID FOREIGN EXTRACTS. ENGLAND. It appears to be a settled thing that the At lantic Telegraph is altogether useless, and that a new cable will have to be laid down. The .chief- directors of this unfortunate undertaking are together by the cars, and the papers are filled with long letters imputing blame to dif ferent parties. One writer avers that if the cable had been made of the best charcoal iron at £.100 per mile, it would not have broken under a strain of 81 ewt., but a saving of £10 a mile had reduced the breaking strain to 62 cwt. Messrs. Newall and Co., who made a " bit" of the wire, 1500 miles, say their cable was made at £90 a mile, and bore a strain of 85 cwt., and *that the additional cable required this year was made by Messrs. Glass and Elliott. The most unfortunate fatality appears to at tend steam communication between England and Autistralia. The last overland mail but one broke down, and all who did not send 'luplicate letters by ordinary conveyance have cau...
SELECT POETRY. WHAT I LIVE FOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 15 January 1859
'SELECT POETRY, WHAT ILIVE FOR. - live for those who love me. Whose hearts are kind and true ; For the heaven that smiles above me, And awaits my spirit too; For all human ties that bind me; For the task by God assigned me; For the bright hopes left behind me, And the good that I can do. I live to learn their story Who've suffered for my sake: . To emulate their glory, . And follow in their wake: Bards, patriots, martyrs, sages, SThe noble of all a"es, Whose deeds crowd History's pages, And Time's great volume make. I live to hold communion With all that is divine; To feel there is a union el'Vsrixt Nature's heart and mine: To profit by affliction, Reap truths from fields of fiction, Grow wiser from conviction, And fulfil each grand design. , live to hail that season By gifted minds foretold, When men shall live by reason, . And not alone by gold: When man to man united, And every wrong thing righted, The whole world shall te lighted As Eden was of old. I live for those who love me,...
ENGLISH NEWS. ARRIVAL OF THE SALSETTE. NEWS TO 1ST NOVEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 15 January 1859
ENGLISH NEWS. ARRIVAL OF THE SALSETTE. NEWS TO 1ST NOVEMBER. The Melbourne correspondent of the Herald informs our contemporary of the arrival there on Saturday of the P. and O. Company's steamship Salsette, 69 days, form Southampton. She was to have sailed yesterday morning for Sydney. The Foreign and English political news is stated to be unimportant. The revenue tables for last year show a net decrease of £140,000. The increase is in Customs and licenses, but a great decrease in land revenue. The general result is considered satisfactory. Prince Albert embarked on 27th October as cadet onboard the Euryalus, steam frigate, which had proceeded to sea. No agent for the P. and 0. Company yet ap pointed for Melbourne. The Malta, Captain Downe, is to!be the next boat. The P. and O. Company's officers for the Emeu are on board. M. De Lesseps states that the work of the Suez Canal will commence in three months, and the canal be opened in three years. Louisa of Denmark safely delivered of...
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 15 January 1859
LEdGIStATIVE ASSEMBLY. QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE. Mr. I)eniehy rose to a point of privilege. It would be in the recollection of the House, that in the debate on Wednesday or Tuesday last, on the question of supplementary state-aid, he had followed the honorable member for Murrumbid gee (Mr. George Macleay) and had denied the correctness of the honorable gentleman's asser tion as to the existence out of doors, of a certain feeling on the part of the Roman Catholic body with respect to that vote. The honorable mem ber stated that the Roman Catholic portion of the community-or, at all events a considerable portion of it, looked upon the refusal of the As sembly to grant the sum of £14,000, supplemen tary to the amount set apart in schedule C, as a specific act of hostility to-in point of fact, an attack upon, the interests of their religion. He (Mr. Denichy) in reply, at once denied the ex istence of any feeling or opinion of the kind among Roman Catholics, as far as he was aware. With ref...
LAUNCH OF THE "LADY DENISON." [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 15 January 1859
LAUNCH OF 'THE "LADY DENIsoN."-On Saturday last, a,large assemblage of persons congregated in and near Mr. Cuthbert's ship yard, Darling Harbor, to witness the launch of a now vessel which, in hon our of Lady Denisor, was named after that highly esteemed lady. A launch of a colonial-built vessel is seldom wltnessed in our harbour; but it is a matter of congratulation that the rarity of the work promises to pass away as the capabilities of the co lony become developed-the enterprise of indivi duals encouraged, and the skill of our mechanics and artisans properly appreciated. Maritime enter prise, has tended more to consolidate the power, ex tend the influence, and secure the prosperity of Great Britain than even her old wooden walls, and as such enterprise is a characteristic of Englishmen in every clime, wherever colonies of them have set tled, it would be strange indeed if it were neglected or overlooked here. The facilities which these colo nies offer for the prosecution of mercan...

COOLANGATTA IN A RAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 15 January 1859
COOLAN'GATTA IN A RAGE. It is positively a fact that the Great Alexander has distinguished our small journal by commenc ing two actions for libel against the proprietor; first, for exposing and denouncing his conduct in preventing the Reverend Dr. Lang having the use of the Presbyterian Church in Shoalhaven ; and secondly, for having copied into our columns from the Illawarra Mercury a letter signed by the reverend Doctor, headed " The Shoalhaven Incu bus." Where the libels lie in either, it will puzzle even Messrs. Norton and Barker to prove; fortunately, however, the law has two sides, and relying upon its justice-side, as well as upon the honor, the integrity, the intelligence, the common sense, and the truth of -a British jury, we fear neither Mr. Berry, his attornies, nor the other side of the law. Does Mr. Berry mean to assert that he did. not write to the Rev. Mr. Garven on the subject, and that his interdict was not the cause of the reverend Doctor's being obliged to decline...
