SPECIAL COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS, NOWRA.—September 13. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 17 September 1859
SPECIAL COURT OF PETTY SESSIONBs, NownA. September 13. Before James Thompson, Andrew Aldcorn, Andrea de Mestro, and James Aldcorn, Esqrs, -BRowN v. McCanRTIY.-The case for felony, postponed from last Court-day in consequence of the absence of the witness Aldous (who was now apprehended under a warrant), came on to-day, and .occupied the Bench seven hours. The evidence of Aldous was of a most contradictory character, and the case was ultimately dismissed. Mr. Richards, solicitor, ably conducted the defence. GEonGE LoaonoTToTr was brought before the Beqch, charged with being drunk and disorderly. He pleaded guilty. The Bench considering his being in the lock-up thirty hours was sufficient punishment, he was discharged. Mr. GEORGE UNDERWOOD ALLEY applied to the Court for a promissory note, on which judgment had been given .at the Court of Requests, at the suit of .Mr. Michael Hyam. The majority of the Court decided that the document was a record of the Court, and the application was re...
COLONIAL PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 17 September 1859
COLONIAL PARLIAMENT. On Friday, the 9th instant, the debate on Mr. Cow. per's motion for the rescission of the vote on Mr. Parkes's measure was warm and protracted. The debate was opened by Mr. Flood, who in a long and labored speech endeavored to prove, that in the present question, as in the previous one, a direct negative would be the proper course. Mr. Murray had regarded the late resignation as a judicious mancuvro. He had himself endeavoured to form a Ministry, not being willing so patch it up by seelking newly arrived immigrants to fill the highest offices of the Crown. Mr. Black wisely desired to economise the time of the House. He admitted that tea and sugar were necessa ries of life, and was prepared to repeal the duties upon them, but only at a proper time and in a proper way. Mr. Forster did not believe that the original motion was introduced by Mr. Parkes to embarrass the Ministry, therefore should not be influenced by the new gospol Dr. Lang. He thought motives ought n...
ENGLISH AND FOREIGN NEWS. Saturday, July 9th. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 17 September 1859
ENGLISH AIND FOREIGN NEWS. (From the Sydney M. Herald's London Correspondent.) Saturday, July 9th. Since the battle of Solferino, all Europe has been expecting to hear of a still greater battle, "and more gigantic efforts of the warfare, than any yet undertaken against Austria. Prepara tions to attack Verona, Mantua, and Venice, and an o entirely new phase was looked for. It has come certainly, but of a widely different kind to what was expected. Instead.of some more fearful manifestations of warfare, has como the news of the sudden suspension of hostilities. Details are meagre enough at present; but this much is known, that the first overtures were made by the Emperor Louis Napoleon, and at once responded to by Francis Joseph. The affair was conducted with the utmost secrecy. The two Emperors are to meet alone on Mon day-alone. The excitement and animation produced in Paris and London, &c., by this sudden, and pt present, unexplained, turn in affairs is consider able. The p...

MISCELLANEOUS, -4-- STHE END OF A REMARKABLE RIFLEMAN. " August 20th.-One of the houses from which we suffered most was.that opposite the Cawn pore battery. We had already, in July last, made a sorties upon this house, known. as ' Johauncs,' which I omitted to notice. ! It was the private property of a merchant iof that name; and had been stored with goods of all sorts. :One of'the late king's African eunuchs, a first-rate rifleman, had picked off doaens of our men during the first days of the sieee. Our men had christened him ' Bob the Nailer,' because he nailed every man he fired at with his double-barrelled rifle. The sorties, headed by Lieutenant M'Cabe, of the 22nd regiment, had been perfectly successful. An ,ntry had been effected by blrstin3. open a little doorway. A number of' the enemy had. been found asleep, and were bayonetted in grand style.

BONAPARTE'S CAMPAIGNS IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 17 September 1859
BONAPARTE'S OAMJPAIGNS IN ITALY. The :.following, ?short summary of the cam paigns of Bonaparte in Italy will be interesting at the present time, and will illustrate the strength of ;the-positions held by the Austriaris. Theiocomnmand.of the army of Italy was as sixmed _by Napoleon about the- end of March, 1796; _It consisted of 42,000 men and sixty guns-the troops being in the most destitute condition. Beaulieu and Colli, the Austrian and Sar dinian Generals, had under them 50,000 men and 2.00 guns; and. 24,000 Sardinians, who were: then allied, with the Austrians, guarded the.avenues of Inez against Kellerman's army of. nearly 'equil. strength; the French mostly occupying, the crests and their opponents the valleys: leading to the Italian plains. Per - trating by the Ca01 de Cadibon, he succeeded in sepirating the .Austrians from the Piedmontese, and inibeating the former at Montonotte. The exact reverse of this operation was performed bytlhe Austrians in 1800, who succeeded then ...
LAND SALE ON THE CLARENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 17 September 1859
LAND SALE ON THE CLARENOE.-AugUst 31. After something like three years' expectation, the township of Lawrence has been thrown open to public competition, and the first salos of land at that place occurred on the 20th and 30th instants. This place, which is on the Clarence River, at the Sportsman's Creek, eighteon miles below Grafton, is likely to progress rapidly, as already a consider - able trade has sprung up with the Richmond an d. the interior from that place; the site is well adapted for building purposes, as a spur of the range dividing the Clarence and Richmond comes into the river at that place, and abundance of.good stoies exists upon the spot for building purposes, while, by btiilding a stone dam across the mouth of Spertsman's Creek, an' unlimited supply of fresh water will be easily secured, advantages which our surveyors are too apt to overlook generally in se. lecting sites for towns in this colony. There is, however, very little land in the neighborhood fit for agric...
