COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. Friday, December 7th. (Before the Stipendiary Magistrate.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 11 December 1855

COURT OF PETTY SESSION'S. . •, . '.Friday, Deenmber 7th. (Before the Stipendiary Musristrnte.) DRUNKARDS.—Patrick McCauley, on a charge of drunkenness, was discharged. He had gone up to the Camp to make a complaint of Mr. Conquest having received from him the sum of £4, to take care of for him, and then refused to return it. Being intoxicated, he had fallen asleep on the Verandah of the Police Office, and had thus found his way into the watchhouse. He, when brought up, said Mr. Conquest had told him he had returned the money, but he being drunk at the time, must have forgotten the circumstance. Thomas Duyzan, an unfortunate man, evidently in a state of dilirum, was brought up on the charge of lunacy. In reply to the Bench, he stated he had seen some £ethe last night hut not so many as on the night before, when they rubhed him over with brimstone, but they had not burned him. He had seen his grand   mother come from her tomb in Ireland, while at Han nah's public house. H...

Both might be, throughout English customs, oecns sioned by the habits of bed-pressing—but a bud deroga tory tradition for us old Australians and worse for our descendants in this climate, ami persuading myself that our fellow-citizens nnd diggers have made the same ob servations and wish n chaugeuient ol' the usual church and school time, I nnvyour sincere I MF.niCOR.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 13 December 1855

SYDNEY. The Sydney correspondent of the Argus Bays— " There' is ail immense amount of intriguing going on in reference to the change of arrange ments consequent upon the birth of the New Con stitution. The first Ministry, will. I have reason to believe, he a co a ition Ministry. In fact, with the retirement of manv of the present officials and the absence of anytfiing like an ett'ective party organisation any other species of Ministry could scarcely be formed. It is pretty certain that Mr. Cowper will be at the head of the cabinet, who ever may be his helpmates- The present Solicitor General will, it is understood, become Attorney General. There is no man in the country could fill the office so well. But what is to become of the ohl Attorney-General ? That is the ques tion. Some say he is to g<> into the Upper House, and fill the presidential chair. Others that a colo nial chancellorship is to lie created, and that Sir Alfred Stephen being put into this office will tak...

THE BENDIGO ADVERTISER. PROGRESSION, OUR RIGHTS, AND OUR RESOURCES. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1855. A VICTORIAN INQUISITION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 13 December 1855

THE "BEHDISO 4DVERTISEB. PROGRESSION, OUR RI01ITS, AND OUR RESOURCES. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1855^ A VICTORIAN INQUISITION. In Melbourne it appears that there is a " Sab Lath Observance Society," which although it is a very humble imitation, yet displays somewhat of the spirit of the old Spanish Inquisition. The Inqusitor-General in this association is the Rev. Adam Cairns, Convener, who, it would seem, lias caught more of the genius of the illustrious John Calvin than is quite consistent with the spirit of the present nge. Perhaps there might have been some excuse in those troublous times for that reformer—we mean Calvin, not Cairns— distinguishing himself by causing a polemical opponent to be burnt alive. But the Rev. Adam Cairns is not likely to find much sympathy for his intolerant doings at the present time. The day lias gone by when pragmatical ecclesiastics in tho Church of Scotland, or any other church, will be suffered to interfere in secular affairs and con vulse society b...

The Solicitor-General stated the ease very fairly, pointing ont the difference- between incompetency or neglect, for which medical men were legally responsible ; and a want success, for which no professional man could be held responsible. He alluded also to a Dr. Smith, who sat down on the patient''in bed and hurt liim, and to the patient refusing to go to the hospital. Dr. Hunt, J.P., examined': Visited the de ceased, J. Laurence, on 28th September, in the morning.. Found a gun-shot wound over the breast bone, through the neck, direct backwards did not feel the ball; thought it injudicious to ex tract the ball; it might do injury, by rupturing some important vessel in drawing, it out; in the afternoon saw Dr. Wall there ; did not visit the case again whilst the patient wis (dive.

A SIXPENNY REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 13 December 1855

A SIXPENNY REVOLUTION. The publican interest is convulsed—the.licensed victuallers are iri'a ferment, and a terrible revolu tion is impending. The days of the shilling nob blers and glasses are numbered, and a fearful down ward j limp to a sixpence is inevitable. The prospect of so terrible a transition shakes the nerves, of persecuted hotel-keepers, and causes the hair of Boniface to' stand like " quills upon the fretful porcupine." The placid and profitable serenity of the shilling era has been rudely invaded by one of. those horrors - of- well-regulated, quietly-' disposed people—an innovator,' A storm is the consequencc. Th# spirit of Boniface is up, a meeting has taken place to devise means for bring ing the recusant to reason, and quondam jolly land lords grow woe-begone and pathetically eloquent in anticipation of future ruin and disaster. The walls of. the Victoria- Hotel, on Tuesjlay evening, reverberated to the denunciations and pleadings of the publicans, prophetic of evi...
