Wii Trdat. To. Dos r los wednesday septemi2ieu 24, 18p2, Taen has recently been an extravagant waste of literary and oratorical ability to say nothing about the scr fico of precious time in censuring the existing government of Tho country because its members have not done a variety of things which a number of people wish to see done. There is nothing easier than fault finding. Mian is not More prone to err than to find fault with human error. There Cems to be a natural ton Doncy in society to avenge itself on the Short comings of Public men by abusing them not Only for positive and glaring neglects of Tlusty but for purely imaginary i halts or accidental oversights and omissions. While Over ready to censure Gravo faults or dereliction of duty it is not Well to make too much of lighter failings. Nor should impossibilities be expected. All reforms cannot to carried out in a single Day. Political regeneration As Well As the formation of individual charac tor is necessarily Tlle work of time. Popular aspirations Are always vivid always Active perhaps too volatile Andl consequently soon Foo eel and too suddenly resist the Flo acts of delay. It is not always easy to accurately determine the wishes of a Community on any particular measure it Thoro Elore follows that although popular demands should to kept steadily before the legislature anti Thebo Public we must not Repine because they Are not at once Rospond oed to nor must we too impetuously find fault with those who appear remiss in Gratifying our desires. Patience is As necessary a virtue in political As it is in social life. Those remark is appear to be called for in consequence of the surly tone which May be noticed occasionally breaking out from seve ral Liberal organs of Publio opinion As Well As several loading Publio Mon in the Colony. There is a disposition to Carp at every Appa rent neglect a tendency to overrate Trilling faults a Small spirit of sarcasm Anid affected earnestness the indulgence of which can do no Good. This fault finding mania los not originate in Rural journals where subjects of inevitable complaint such As bed roads postal irregularities and suds Liko con stantly present themselves. The Liberal daily metropolitan journal occasionally exhibits symptoms of this potty spirit which is All the More to be regretted inasmuch As it is Suro to find imitators. Fair play is Bonny play All the world Over and the govern Mont is is justly entitled to fair play which in its Case moans Sualehi client time to mature its legislative business As any other body of men Public or Privato. It must be admitted that the present administration has followed out the programme of measures which its ambors Laid be Bror the country at the be ginning of the session and that they have already got through a pretty fair amount of work particularly when one Refle oots on the character of the opposition which was brought to Bear on some of their lending measures the abolition of state Aid to minis ters of religion for example. On All prominent matters it May be assumed that the government have Boon True to themselves True to their Publio professions True to the interests of the country Andi it therefore follows that constantly to earps at them for slight shortcomings is to do them injustice. As men have different ways of doing business and still arrive at the same satisfactory result in Tho end to wit doing their business Well it is but right that some Concession should be made to those who have undertaken the arduous duty of managing the affairs of Tho country. There is yet no cause of serious complaint. We May have had occasion to express Rogots but really we have not been on the whole grievously disappointed at nor Are our Hopes altogether unreal ipod in respect to our political Progress. The Publico business is conducted slowly it must to admitted but steadily. There is adequate time Given for the express Ion of Public opinion on All questions of importance and there is no evidence of trickery or collusion bet soon the government and any portion of the people s representatives. Considering what kind of a government we might possibly get we May thank our stars that we Are As Well off As we Are. There Are Many things we should ourselves like to see amended and we earnestly Hope they will be yet amended. It would be Well that the min material financial statement should be made Earl every season and that the Roesti mates should be passed before any first class business is initiated but so Long As therein nothing serious to complain of reasonable allowance should be Mads for those who have the affairs of the country in their hands.

Yiu Dyor i heard he came to in Sriro after his Broth lers and it wans then i apprehended him. Or. Windover addressed Tihe jury for the defence at considerable length. To submitted that Tihe evidence produced to the very serious charge against Tlle prisoner was altogether insufficient and involved in a considerable degree of suspicion. The evidence of the principal witnesses policemen was not Given in the straightforward Way to be expected from men in their position and exhibited Many discrepancies. Tire circumstances of the Case Woro such As to invest the explanation Given on behalf of prisoner with very High degree of probability. No motive was shown Why prisoner and this companions should have attacked the police with intent to murder nor was there anything to show that they know the men who came to them were policemen at All. Tho Evideane of the Gaoler tended to show that the accused were not of a class of persons Likely to commit offences of this i Lent nature. They were apparently hard working miners with a considerable amount of Money in their Possession and under the impression that the Omen who mint them were about to stick them they defended themselves and what might be described As a Frodo ight took place. Iuo submitted prisoner was entitled to an acquittal at the hands jury. Mir. Butler replied. U11 defended the police Fromin the imputations so frequently cast upon their evidence. Iio submitted that the credibility of the evidence for the defence was entirely destroyed by the evidence for tile prosecution. The Story told was altogether improbable and nothing but a tissue of nonsense and palpable perjury. As to the motive of prisoner if a Man committed an unlawful tire Law imputed a motive. Ii suggested however that Tyllo jury might reasonably not impute the motive for Tho capital offence. Whether tile prisoners knew Thil Mera they attacked Teoro police or not made no life Ronco it the Crimo but they probably know them Well enough there was plenty of grudge unfortunately against the police on the diggings and 0olingg them there prisoners probably thought it a Good Opportunity to gratify this be Roeling. Ilo sub Nittold thoe jury must altogether dismiss the Story let in defence and if so they had nothing but Tho other account to fall Back upon and must find prisoner guilty. The judge summed . The observed the Crown prosecutor appeared to give the first count the capital offence. It would be for the jury to say tin whether prisoner was guilty or not of assault ing with intent to do grievous bodily harm. For himself i never could Aeo How any person could assault another without intent to do him harm but under the information it was competent for the jury if they did not think prisoner intended to do grievous bodily harm to find him guilty of unlawfully wound ing. With a few observations on the nature of the evidence he left the co a in their hands pointing out however that in considering the Ovid Enco for thie defence it must be Borha in mind that it was that of one who was strongly interest Odin thie a quintal of prisoner. The jury after an absence of about fifty ini Tulos returned with a verdict of not guilty on both Counte trend prisoner was discharged. Ii obit stealing at Nur Mangono.
