The Daily Southern Cross, 26 August 1843 reported in the Domestic Intelligence section: We insert as required the following report from our correspondent, because we wish to give all parties fair play in this as in every other case. Police Office, — Friday, Aug. 25, 1843. Captain Cook of the "Alligator" and Mr John Rich, applied before F. Mathew, Esq , C.P.M , for advice and redress in the following matter . — The applicants had recently imported several head of horned cattle, and determined to avail themselves of the new market, for the purpose of disposing of some of them at such prices as would afford them a fair remuneration, and secure the public from the extortion, which has been hitherto practised by the retail butchers. These gentry however, are not willingly quietly to surrender the monopoly they have so long enjoyed, and accordingly on Wednesday morning they stationed in the market place several " touters" to declare that the beast whose carcase was then offered, had died of disease, and that the meat was unwholesome. The result of this proceeding was, that although the beef was as fine as ever was offered at Leadenhall, it was refused by a great many intending buyers ; at least for that day, and if the weather had been unfavourable the meat would of course have been spoiled, to say nothing of the disadvantage to the citizens. The Government had lent this place for a market, and bad encouraged the settlers and others to bring their produce to it, for the good of the community ; but this assistance was worse than useless, if some protection was not afforded by Police regulations against such schemes as these. Mr Rich said that he hoped to bring home the offence to some of them, and in that case would know how to act. But against the instruments themselves, an action at law would of course be but poor retribution. The Chief Police Magistrate said, that he was well aware of the combinations among the butchers, to keep up high prices to the disadvantage of the public, as well as the settlers ; and he was extremely sorry, that in the absence of a Local Act for the regulation of the market, he had no power to assist the applicants. The Statute law against 'fore-stalling, he thought, was hardly applicable to the case ; but even if it were, the course of proceeding would be by indictment, and not summary jurisdiction. If the gentlemen before him could by legal assistance discover any process by which he had power to help them, he would most earnestly do so ; but at present he thought, the only useful proceeding to adopt, was to make the scheming tricks of "the fleshers" as public as possible, that every one might understand the thing properly. Here the matter was dropped 'for the present.
