THE Published every Friday morning. FRIDAY, NOVE.M BER 29TH, 1861. j THE LIBERTY OF THE SUBJECT. SINCE that disastrous April afternoon, just a hundred and fifteen y«ars ago, - when the star of 'he Smart dynasty went down for ever amid the carnage- 'of Culloden, no pitched' battle has-been fought on British soil; While other lands less blessed have been subjected to the scourge of war, while every European territory besides has been overrun by the fire and ibe hail, the Island j of Great Britain has enjoyed the felicity of an unbroken peace. Oftiiis o.ur country men are-not unmindful, and for this they a re sincerely tbaukful* But as a set off auainst tbis immunity, there is an annuail sacrifice of life and limb from railways oh the scale/ of a considerable war, and the liuman figure divine is mangled and mutilated in a man lier not equalled by cannon shot of the des perate cavalry charge, .

Correspondence To the Editor of the Border Watch. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 29 November 1861
v orrespondence To the Editor of the Border Watch,.. Sir,-I was astonished to see so many people at the Local Court on the 19ih jnst. I brieve there were ol least from 50 to 60 persons, litigants and witnesses including those for loss of lime and oilier expi'Bsts of some £20, thete being as I am creditably informed some, 22 cases." This looks very bad in a joung and thinly populated district. I-think most of the cqses originate in liiipous,-malicious flnd vindictive feeling?, and I think something mav he l»id to the changes of the flfppaat and irrtvelaut form of the oath.; I dare sav at least 25 per cent of the oaths taken here have but little influence on the parties making their statements. I wonder that the Scotch do uor insist for their form.of oath as well as the Ger mans, whose forms are much more se* ions and reveTvntial-tbink of a person who can not r to the most cummon questions I but thro' nn interpreter, taking the oath in . the most indifferent matiirerV while a China ma...

Local Intelligence. DOST STORM.--On Monday afternoon j a iUt3den squall V ol great violence, which lasted fully half an; hour, blew the immense volume of dust, the legacy. of the past winter, iritoclouds which literally darkened the air, and resembled the blinding drift of a «n&lt; w s:orm. The fine impalpable volca' i»ic powder penetrated every door and win ; do win the township, and the stores especi ally must have suffered considerably in con sequence. To facie that storm on the' principal road was almost impossible ; and we could nt»i help deploring the want ' of macadumized streets, and the discomfort to ?which our townsmen during both divisions of the year, in winter ffom mud ah(J water, jud iu summer from dust.

No one had'bet:eropp&lt;>r Unities than Cavour of sounding their depths. He was the only livinp man. who had ventured t0 grapple with him! face to face, and - who had used him for his purpose. " The eatU mate he had formed of his capacity was not a high one but he fully admitted his fertK lily of resource, his physical and moral courage, and his knowledge o^ihe people he governs. "He has no definite policy,''he remarked to an English friend. " He has a number of political ideas floating in his mind, none of them matured.
