SEYMOUR ANNUAL RACES. (From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 15 April 1864

SEYMOUE ANNUAL BACES. (From a corrapondent.)

But (he clerk of the weather opened the sunny side of his ledger for us, and the two days were all that could be desired, if we exoept a few slight showers that passed over alternately.

NIMITYBELLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 15 April 1864

NIMITYBELLE. (From a corretpmdtnt.J Dk*JR Sis,— Philanthropy, if no better feeling, would bid one write upon tho present quandary (as Jack the sailor would coll it) in which this unfortunate place is involved, — for, added to the curse of having knowledge taxed from bead-quarters, we are now taxed with— I may wcU call it ? lack of justice, by not having a second magistrate for a long, time to adjudicate with Mr. Bell, of this place. For instance, a poor man, alleged to have been defrauded of his wages, has now attended three time* at the Nimitybette courthouse, without re ceiving any redress, because Mr. Bell was unassisted by a second magistrate. And this is not the only instance wmcu puces justice under a cloud, by not having regularly a second magistrate to assist. Perhaps, in tho eyes of some venerable J. P., this place is not sufficiently aristocratic to command their attention ; but, surely to goodness, they are not above performing an indispensable good to which their commiss...

THE BUSHRANGERS TWENTY YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 15 April 1864

THE BUSHRANGERS TWENTY YEARS AGO. (Fkom Lawrmee Slruitty.) Tub reader may be curious to know tbe latter end of these unceremonious visitors of Mr. and Mrs. Siruilbv. The account of their capture shows the darkest side of busb life, and tbe desperate character of the men with whom colonists at that time were not unfrequently brought into contact. The following is Mr. Struilby's account: — You ask me, my dear J ? , if the gang of Scotch)', Witton, and Go. were captured, and how ? They were captured ; for jus tice—even in tbe colonies — has a long arm and a sharp eye ; and no delinquent finally escapes her. By self-interest she swears in every man as a special constable ; and, I think, some of the most daring deeds ever done by man have been done by some settlers in capturing or killing bushrangers. I hand no band in the taking of my old guests, and for many reasons — of which two may suffice. They left my neighbour-* hood for a distant district ; and I was so intent on ' tailing cattl...
