TAKING THE BOUNTY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 6 June 1868
TAKING TI-IHE BOUN 'Y. (From the Colonial AlMonthly.) SEVERAL years ago when, in England, Mel bourne was properly supposed to be -a city inhabited by wild-looking. men dressed in blue shirts, moleskin trousers, and tight boots, wearing pistols in their belts and car rying a large nugget in each pocket, I deter mined to try my fortunes in a place sur rounded with such romantic halo.

The Age. SATURDAY, JUNE 6th, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 6 June 1868
SA TURDAY, JU'VE 6th, 18G8." '1'IIE last criminal calendar at Darling hurst contained several cases for trial for alleged perjury, and in two cased a conviction followed ; the third case, against an attorney of the Supreme Court, failed for want of evidence. The crime of perjury seems to be thought little of by persons of elastic conscience ;j:yet the prevalence of this offence against laws both human ind divine reflects much upon the moral condition of those con~victed of it. It has very often been our lbt to at tend- trials both civil and criminal, and the casual observer cannot fail to see that in many cases the most pal pable perjury is often committed by one side or other-a fact, tc o, that does not always escape the observa tion and comment of the presiding Judge. The reader of the public prints often sees this, and all join in the feeling and admission that it is lamentabble in the extreme to find so many charges of perjury preferred. By the honest mind a perjurer is re garde...
