JUDGMENT IN SUIT OF HORNE V GILLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 1 September 1860
JUDGMENT IN SUIT OF HORNE v. GILLES. His HONOR read the following reserved judg- ment :- &nbsp; &nbsp; " The question in this case is, if I should grant probate, in Victoria, to a will dated August 14, 1858, of Mr. Benjamin Horne, of Chiswick, in Tasmania, executed there. The litigants are Mr. Francis Sharpe Horne, son of testator, plaintiff ; and Osmond Horne Gilles and Louis Brices Gilles, grandsons of testator, defendants. The separate, but almost parallel pleas of the defendants, insist, amongst other things, that the testator was blind when the will was made, and it was not read over to him in the presence of witnesses ; but the tes- tator, under the influence of the plaintiff and Mr. Thomas Horne, and under the impression that he was executing a will in accordance with a pre- viously declared and different intention, signed a paper writing purporting to be his last will, con- trary to his real intentions. I take this as the substance of the pleadings, containin...
HORNE V. GILLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 1 September 1860
_HOB.pi F, GILtjBS. WE publish to-day the judgment (iii talento) do, 'livercdby Mr Justice MOLESWORTH, in Melbourne, in the Equity suit of HORNE V. GILLES, and wo sub join the comments on the case ol the Melbourne press. In doing this wo discharge a most unwel- come duty that devolves upon us as public journal- ists. We have, however, no discretion. And wo are satisfied that we should be little consulting the wishes of any person upon whose conduct the case may more or less reflect, in any attempt to suppress either the particulars of the suit or the strictures that have been passed upon them. The world in its charity would doubtless attribute its own motives, if we adopted that course. We must, however, say that Mr. Justice Horne, who has for many years held a distinguished public position in this colony, and its esteem for whom the commu- nity has allowed no suitable opportunity to pass of expressing is entitled to ask that no public judg- ment shall be pronounced until the case i...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 1 September 1860
VICTORIA. By the City of Hobart and Black Swan we have Melbourne papers to the 29th ult. The interest of the news is confined to the Par- liamentary explanations on the Ministerial crisis and the riotous assault on the Houses of Parlia ment. On Tuesday evening the 28th ult., there being a full meeting of the Assembly, an exciting scene took place. Mr. Nicholson in the first place de- tailed the events which had occasioned his retire- ment from office and resulted in his resuming the government. He said:- He needd not state the cause of the difficulty that had arisen in the Cabinet, as it was well known to the country. A statement had been made in one House, and retracted in the other; and that retracta- tion had been made by Mr. Fellows, under pres sure of time and circumstances, in virtue of an Arrangement which had been agreed upon between &nbsp; Mr. Bennett and Mr. Service, but which the former had found himself unable to carry out. He had sought Mr. Service in the refres...

QUEENSLAND. (FROM THE ARGUS CORRESPONDENT). Brisbane, August 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 September 1860
QUEENSLAND. (FROM THE AltGUS COBKESFONDEN'l). Brisbane, August 14 Since the date of my last communication, it has rained day and night with scarcely an hour's intermission, and our streets are in such a miry condition that no ordinary amount of resolution is required tu venture out of doors in search of news. Business, commercially and socially, has been proportionately dull, and the adjournment of the Assembly until the 21ät inst., for the purpose of affording the several select committees time to bring up their reports, has left mo but little political intelligence to record. The Un- occupied Crown Lands Occupation Bill and the Tenders Regulation Bill, have both passed through the Lower House, and been sent to tho Council, who are still sitting, for their concur- rence. The former has been amended in the Assembly hy the abolition of the preemptive system, the result of a strong expression of public opinion, given at a meeting held at tho School of Arts.
