Correspondence TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 April 1868
Qollr ypwltdqflec TO TIUE EDITOR. Sa?a,-In the balance-sheet of 'the last Queanbeyan races the fullowing item appears to the credit of the treasurer, "Lunch and reTreshment for police, &c., £7 18s." My object in addressing you is to ask why in this £7 18s, the lunch provided for the po lice at a cost of £1, which they themselves have' paid, was singled out to characterise the expendi ture? Why did the hon. sec., in his letter explain ing the item, speak of the balance paid to Mr Land, for s ewards' lunch and police grog, when he must have known that the police paid Mr Land for, their own grog the large sum of 3s. The balance-sheet, and much more the letter of the hon. sec., would lead to the supposition-that there was a desire, or at any rate no disinclination, to bring-discredit on the officer in charge of the police. This attempt, if such has been made, would be an act' of folly here where Mr Latimer has very many friends and scarcely an enemy; but as the. matter may be us...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 April 1868
TO TEZ ZDITOR. Sir,-Tn a letter which appeared in your last issue signed by a man called O'Neill, wherein he accuses me. of agnorance,'I certainly had not the advantage of receiving an education in Sligo workhouse and then being turned a-muck; but was taught to res pect men and, things, hence my desire to expose what I considered a flagrant abuse of the funds to which I was a subscriber. I confess I am not well up in lumping accounts or entering into contracts tor hu man forage, but would ra'her be satisfied with my present calling. But some people are so bull-headed that they think the world must be satisfied with what ever they think proper to tell them, although they desire to make people think all the law and justice is received from their own books. I admit I do not possess such a stock of brains asthe.race se cretary, who seems to have such a surplus stock as to run over us. He reminds rime of the story of the man going to war, who sent his cap. to be padded bullet proof, and ...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 April 1868
TO CORRESPONDENTBS. " An Elector" addresses a letter through as to Mr L. P. Do Salis, 1M.P., complaining of that portion of MIr De Salie's speech in Monday's parliamentary proceedings, where, according to the herald, he is made to say- Hle was sorry to say that in the country it was frequently the cate thae particular gentlemen went to sit in court fur their customers." Elector complains that our member alludes to the local magistrates here and is indignant at the inu endo, and calls upon MIr Dc Sllis on this and other grounds to resign his seat in the HIouse. Ile also asks him, " In common justice to Messrs Levy and Wright to point to a single case of such un becoming behaviour as he attributes to them." T'he commuuication is rather too intemperately written to admit of publication as it stands.

The Age. SATURDAY, APRIL 25th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 April 1868
SA TURDAY, APRIL 25th, 1808. Oun laws are so framed in regard to the criminality of offenders against society, that punishment is thereby intended. Unfori ttiately in New S.otli Wales these laws are not car ried out with that, strictness whichl seems to us as highly necessary. It halppens that men become criminal either from want of principle, the ef fects of bad couipany, or the indul gence of their appetite for strong drinks. In any of these cases men are sensible of the danger. they ex pose themselves to in following a course of crime. But the criminal relies upon the mercy of the execu tive power for a remission of part of any sentence that may be passed against him, and hence the large num ber that appear so often for adjudi cation of their offences. If the pun ishment intended were inflicted it seems to us that it would deter a re currence of crime, where a prisoner has been sentenced to hard labour; if the kind of labour to be performed was made in reality laborious our crimi...

The defendant ad mitted the charge. Mr Parr, for the com plainant, said it was not the wish of Mr Campbell to.press for a heavy)penalty, as he merely desired a small fine to mark the of fence as a warning to others.
