Details: On Wednesday an application was made to the Supreme Court by Mr Cheeke, for a rule calling upon Mr Archibald Boyd to show cause why a criminal information should not be filed against him for attempting to incite Captain Lettsom, of the 80th regiment, to commit a breach of the peace. The circumstances of the case, as detailed in the affidavit of Captain Lettsom, were as follows: On the 5th of March, Captain Lettsom was riding through Maitland in company with Mr H. Garrard, when they met Mr A. Boyd of New England, who, stopped to converse with Mr Garrard: Captain Lettsom, who had never seen Mr Boyd before, thought it was Mr Sempill, and being near-sighted, admits that he might have looked rather hard at Mr Boyd, who said to him, I believe I have not the honour of your acquaintance why do you! look at me in that way . To which Captain Lettsom answered, that he had not looked at him particularly that he was aware-of; to which Mr Boyd replied, yes you did, and you always look at me that way ; and I won t be looked at. To this Captain Lettsom replied that he was not ashamed of being looked at, and should look at anybody he pleased ; and if Mr Boyd did not like to be looked at, he had better shut himself up; upon which the parties separated. Shortly afterwards Captain Lettsom was waited upon by a Mr McLean the friend of Mr Boyd, who requested an apology or satisfaction, to which Captain Lettsom replied, that he had nothing to apologise for, and most certainly would not fight, and referred Mr McLean for any further satisfaction to his friend Lieutenant Sayers, who was then at Newcastle, but was expected to return the next morning. The next day Mr Boyd wrote to Captain Lettsom saying, that he had waited twenty-four hours for Lieutenant Sayers, and could not be expected to wait any longer; and if he did not hear from someone on behalf of Capt Lettsom in half-an-hour, he would post him at his club in Sydney, and at Cox s and Cohens Hotels, Maitland. Not hearing from Captain Lettsom, Mr Boyd then published the following placard, which he affixed to several several public places in Maitland: I Archibald Boyd, of the Australian Club, Sydney, and of New England, do here by post Captain Lettsom, H.M. 80th regiment and commanding the depot at Maitland a coward and no gentleman. The affidavit of Mr Garrard corroborated Captain Lettsom s, except that he observed Captain Lettsom and Mr Boyd looking very hard at each other. the rule was granted and the Chief Justice said he hoped some discreet friend would cause Mr Boyd to set himself right before the next term
