ARIETIES. SoLnexacrrTow or Ilraro?No" BY A PRE TENDED C0EROTP~N.-At the last Wiltshire Assizes (18i1) Edward Seymour Burch (who was brought up in custody from Brecn) was indicted for feloniously and wilfully solcmnising matrimony between George White and Ann Andrews, according to the rites of the Church of England, he not being in holy orders, at Rushall, on the 10th November. The facts of the case will be in our readers' recollection. Evidence having been adduced in support of the charge, the prisoner read a long statement in his defence, in which he submitted that his indentity had not been established, and that the representation made by the party who celebrated the marriage as to his being in hioly orders might have meant the orders of the Church of Rome. His Lordship, in summing up, said it had been clearly shown that the prisoner celebrated this marriage, and the only fact, therefore, for the consideration of the jury was whether the prisoner was ever in holy orders at all.

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. FoXrFnal or MR. H.

Few men, psrhaps, were hbetter acqnainted with the many vicisritudes which this couutry has experienced writhin thle last half centulry than the late Mr. Herrcules Watt. To use his own language, he had seen Sydney risa "from a village into a city." As an instance of the extraordinary growth of the conlony within the recollection of Mr. Watt, we append an anecdote which will show at once hoai easily sometimes a man may miss a fortune, and how vastly the value of small tracts of land can vary within thelifetime of an individual.

THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 16 August 1861
THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. (From the.Sydney Morniiing Hlerald.) No part of the Government of these colonies has awakened so much anxiety in the minds of reflect ing men as the future selection of justices. There is probably no great danger of violent changesinthe letter of the law, so far as it regulates our social and civic relations, but itis quite possible for the statute book to be worthy of high intelligence, and generally to express the principles of equity, while the public feel that the administration of justice is uncertain that influences are silently operating by which the judoment is perverted. The British judge, when transferred to the colonies, carries with him the sentiment of his order; thebarrister trained in the Courts of Great Britain, expects to find upon the Bench the same courage, truthfulness, dignity, and impartiality, which he witnessed at home, and for some time the iutflnence of old ideas and associations restrains the colonisal authorities in distribu...
