THE ROCHDALE OATH CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 18 May 1861

THE ROCHDALE OATH CASE. An extraordinary occurrence took place last week in the Rochdale county court. So far as we have observed, it has not attracted the attention of any of our contemporaries, and siuce it involves an important question relating to the administration of justice, as a matter of public duty, we proceed to lay it before our readers. The case in dispute was a trivial one. Mr. Samuel Maden, by pro- fession an artist, sued ins wife's stepfather for £6 3s., being the estimated value of a pianoforte, which, it was alleged, the latter had wrongfully detained. The defence set up was, that, the pianoforte belonged to Mrs. Maden's mother, the defendant's wife. These facts are immateral, but it is necessary to state them in order to understand what fol- lows. The only witness called to substantiate the plaintiff's case was Mrs. Maden. She would probably have deposed that the piano- forte belonged to her, and might have sus- tained this allegation by facts convincing to the ju...

STATISTICS OV D.LSKASK.— NATOIllSlS- KN.15 .M1KS AND HER. AM.1KS. The statistics of what are called 'natural deaths' would astonish the world, if we .could only ascertain and compile them. Nature is very much slandered. She is not thodis. tinctive agent she is represented to be. She fights disease with Ainnnmiian energy, nud would conquer iu millions of instances where she succumb*, were it not for the fatal aid of deleterious medicine?. When Uollowny's remedies are called in as her allies, she generally achieves a victory. These hygcian preparations seem to reinforce the vita energies, nnd infuse a sanitary principle into the blood niriiinsl which no disorder can make head. Their success in our- distant colonies, and especially Canada, has been marvellous. Their celebrated inventor, with the world for his arena, could not name any region whore the conflict of liis remedies with the hydra of disease bus been marked by more decided triumphs than in the liritish provinces of America.....
