"PALMAM QUI MERUIT FERAT." INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
"PALMAM QUI MERUIT FERAT." -0- INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. IN presenting the first number of the GOULBURN HERALD to the public, it is naturally expected that, in obedience to time-honored custom, we should offer a few introductory observations, relative to our intended career. Happily, however, the extensive cir- culation of our Prospectus throughout the district has put the inhabitants generally in possession of those princi- ples upon which we propose to be guided in our editorial labours. There- fore, the task that now devolves upon us is comparatively an easy one. But, in the first instance, we are called upon to offer our sincere acknowledg- ments to our numerous friends and sub- scribers, who have come forward so liberally to our aid, to enable us to sur- mount these difficulties and impediments with which our path was surrounded; and to combat triumphantly those ob- stacles which were opposed to the accomplishment of our object. We need hardly add, that it will be our constant aim ...
ALARMING STATE OF EUROPE. "Coming events cast their shadows before." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
ALARMING STATE OF EUROPE. "Coming events cast their shadows before." As our readers are already in possession of the alarming posture of affairs in Europe, it would be a tedious and im- pertinent work of supererogation on our part to inflict upon them a recapitula- tion of the important political events which have taken place in France and other Continental nations in the interim between our last advices from England and those that preceded them. Suffice it to say, that the whole of the old world is tottering under the weight of age and infirmity. Wealth and mag- nificence, conquest and glory, have reached the limits of their sway over the monarchs of the earth, who, like Alex- ander are sighing in vain for new worlds to conquer, and new delights to gratify their luxury and ambition. The golden plethora has been long undermining the constitution of old England herself, and every year's experience furnishes alarm- ing symptoms of her approaching disso- lution. Taking a bird's-eye vie...
THE GOULBURN NEW HOSPITAL [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
THE GOULBURN NEW HOSPITAL A LIST of subscribers to the fund for the erection of a new building, to replace the old dilapidated fabric nicknamed an hospital, which has so long disgraced the town, will be found in another column; from which it appears that 2321 18s 6d has been already subscribed by persons of every religious persuasion residing amongst us. But as this sum falls far short of the requisite amount (£500) which entitles us to the grant of £500 voted by the Legislative Coun- cil for this purpose, it behoves all who intend contributing their mite towards so laudable an object to bestir them- selves and come forward speedily and liberally with their donations. Let it be remembered that, " charity covereth a multitude of sins," and we think we may be permitted to add that there are few amongst us so righteous but stands in need of the exercise of this divine attribute themselves. There fore they should do unto others as they wish to be done by. An attempt is being made by som...
THE APPROACHING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
THE APPROACHING ELECTION. THE candidates for the forthcoming Election have already begun to bestir themselves in the metropolis; and it is high time that we should follow their example, if we are to have a man both able and willing to do us any service in the Legislature. Dr. Nicholson, we understand, intends to contest the seat for Argyle with Mr. Faithfull, if he should offer himself again. As a candi- date for a seat in Council, another gen- tleman at Berrima is spoken of as a very eligible person to represent us. We have also heard the names of Mr. Mac- arthur and Captain Rossi mentioned, as persons who are likely to be in the field. Among the number we should prefer &nbsp; Dr. Nicholson for our representative, as his experience in Council, acknowledged. ability, and business habits eminently qualify him for the duty; but his non- residence in the district, we fear, will be considered an insuperable objection to his election. However, we recommend those gen- tlemen who i...
PUBLIC MEETING. CROWN LANDS WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
PUBLIC MEETING. CROWN LANDS WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES. A PUBLIC -Meeting was held at the Royal Hotel, on Thursday, for the pur- pose of Petitioning His Excellency Sir CHARLES FITZROY, and the Honorable the Executive Council, against carrying into effect the regulations promulgated of the29th March, in reference to the disposal of Crown Lands within the boundaries, the Rev. W. Ross, in the Chair. The CHAIRMAN opened the meeting by saying that, as it was the first time he had had the honor of being elected as chairman of a public meeting, he regretted that some one more inter- ested in the objects of the present one had been appointed. But as the meeting had put him there, he would exert himself to the utmost of his ability to forward their interests. He be- lieved it was customary to commence the busi- ness by reading the requisition calling them together, from which, and the resolutions in the hands of others to move, the objects of the meeting would be explained. (Requisition read). Fo...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
TOWN CLOCK. — The want of a public clock in this town is severely felt by all parties, more particularly the working classes. It would be- yond doubt be both useful and ornamental were one erected at some public building, either in the Church front, or at the Court House, now in course of erection; at which latter building it will be so much required in regulating the business of that establishment; and we sincerely hope that such a desideriatum will not be lost sight of in this age of improve- ment, it being an appendage so particularly required. POULTRY.-Among the numerous depots for administering to the creature comforts of life established in this town, we are surprised that some of our enterprising farmers in the neigh- bourhood have not thought of opening a shop for the sale of poultry. Where butcher's meat is so cheap and abundant, there is no doubt that a poulterer's would meet with very great support. PRIVATE THEATRICALS.-We understand that a few gentlemen in the town and n...
Police Incidents. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
POLICE INCIDENTS &nbsp; TUESDAY. MORBID SENSIBILITY.-On Tuesday morn- ing, Margaret Cahill, an interesting young widow arrayed in sables, and apparently inconsolable for the recent loss of her husband, made her second appearance before their worships Capt Hovell and Lieut. Montgomery, charged by constable Thomas Jones with desecrating the Sabbath by exhibiting herself, in a helpless state of inebriety, in front of the ' Salutation' Inn, Auburn-street, on Sunday evening. Mrs. Car- roll, on hearing the information read, expressed extreme astonishment at the stupidity of the constable, in not being able to distinguish the soporific effect of morbid sensibility from that of intoxication. She solemnly declared that she had only stepped into Mr. Weakley's and called for ONE glass of rum which she took rather as a sedative than a stimulant; and being overwhelmecd with grief for the death of he husband she scarcely knew anything she had done since. MAGISTRATE-And did you get the gla...

BERRIMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
BERRIMA &nbsp; (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) &nbsp; AN inquest was held on Wednesday; the 28th ultimo, before George Bransby. Esq., J.P,, coro- ner, at the ' Argyle Inn,' Bong Bong, on the body of Susan Flanagan, of Mittagong. The deceased was 38 years of age, and the mother of twelve children, the youngest of whom is only thirteen month's old. On Sunday morning last, she walked out into the bush in her usual health; being from home longer than the family expected, they went in search of and found her not far from her house perfectly insensible. She was taken home and died on Thursday morning. Verdict-Died by the visitation of God. Another inquest was held lately before George Bransby, Esq., J.P., at the' Prince Albert' Inn, Little Forest, on the body of Catherine Chap- man, aged 70 years. From the evidence, it appeared, that the deceased left home on the morning of the 24th ult., quite well, to visit her son-in-law, who resides some distance from her own house; in the a...
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. Sir--If agreeable to your arrangements, may I beg insertion of the following letter: " There are facts which must be dragged from obscurity — " There are rottennesses which must be ex- posed to view, and subjected to touch." " To T. A. MURRAY, Esq. M.C. "SIR-Some time back -I forwarded the fol- lowing letter to to the editors of the Sydney He- raid, requesting its insertion; after great delay they informed me, it should have been sent di- rect to you (as if they had never inserted any thing of the kind)-this I hope will be a suffi- cient excuse to you for it not having appeared before. " In the absence of the Hon. Member for Ar- gyle from his seat in Council, when the addi- tional sum of £500 was voted for the Goulburn Gaol, it must be a subject of congratulation to his constituents that you proved FAITHFUL to your trust and mindful of their interest upon that occasion.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. SIR, &nbsp; IT was with mingled feelings of surprise and indignation that I cast my eyes over the list of a recently-appointed batch of Magistrates, perceiving among them the names of some young gentle- men, whose only claim to the honor of so high a distinction appeared to me to be, the quandam position of their pa- rents, as old, and it may be, meritorious officers in Her Majesty's service. To the private characters of these young gentlemen I have no, objection what- ever ; on the contrary, I believe them to be highly honorable and respectable in their respective spheres of life. But, that they possess the necessary qualifi- cations for the efficient discharge of the responsible and onerous duties devolving on them as Magistrates. I must take the liberty to deny. The Magisterial office is one of almost sacred functions, con- fering, if not the power of life and death over the subject-that of dispensing happiness or misery among a great...

SUPERIOR TAILORING ESTABLISHMENT. EDWARD HILLYARD, SLOANE-STREET, GOULBURN, (next door to Mr: Mandleson's), TAKES this opportunity to return his sincere thanks to his numerous Friends and the public generally, of GOULBURN and its vicinity, for the patronage bestowed on him during the time he has been in business; and now begs to inform them that he has lately made considerable addition to his Stock, which will be found to comprise a well-selected and fashionable variety of SUPERFINE WEST-OF-ENGLAND BROAD CLOTHS, Kerseymeres in great variety, Waistcoatings, &c. &c. &nbsp; Which are now ready for inspection as above, where he will feel pleasure in receiv- ing the favors of his Friends, assuring them that every exertion on his part will be used to give satisfaction, by diligent attention, punctuality and moderate charges so as to merit a continuance of that liberal share of support he has hitherto been honored with. 1st JULY, 1848. &nbsp; &nbsp; ...
Poetry. THE OLD BACHELOR'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
THE OLD BACHELOR'S SONG. Funny and free are a bachelor's reveries, Cherrily, merrily passes his life; Nothing knows he of connubial devilries, Troublesome children and clamorous wife. Free from satiety, -care and anxiety, Charms in variety fall to his share, Bacchus's blesses and Venus's kisses, Oh'! this my boy, this is a Bachelor's Fare. A wife's like a cannister, chattering, clattering, Tied to a dog for his torment and dread, All bespattering, bumping and battering, Hurries and worries him till he is dead. Old ones are true devils haunted with blue devils, Young Jones are too devils raising despair; Doctors and nurses, combining their curses, Adieu to full purses and Bachelor's fare. Through such folly days, once sweet holidays, Soon are embittered by wrangling and strife, Wives turn jolly days to melancholy days, Teasing, perplexing and vexing one's life. Children are riotous, maid servants fly at us, Mamma to quiet us growls like a hear, Molly is bawling and Polly is squalling...
THE CONTROVERSY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
THE CONTROVERSY. No plate had John and Joan to hoard- Plain folks in, humble plight One only tankard graced their board, But that was filled each night; Upon whose inner bottom, sketch'd In pride of chubby grace, Some rude engraver's hand had etch'd A baby angel's face. John took at first a moderate sup But Joan was not like John For when her lip once touch'd the cup, She swill'd till all was gone. John often urg'd her to drink fair, But she cared not a jot She loved to see that angel there, And therefore drain'd the pot. When John found all remonstrance vain, . Another card he play'd, And where the angel stood so plain He had a devil pourtray'd. Joan saw the horns, Joan saw the tail, Yet still she stoutly quaff'd, And when her lips once tonch'd the ale, She clear'd it at a draught. John stood with wonder petrified, &nbsp; His hair stood on his pate, "And why dost guzzle now," he cried, " At that enormous rate.' '" Oh, John !" she said, " I'm not to blame I can't in conscien...

A COMPLIMENT. Mr. Lawson, master painter of the dock-yard at New York, was a man whose face was much disfigured with the small-pox, and going.through the dock-gates one day, he was accosted in a tremendons loud hoarse voice by a sailor, whose face .was roughly hewn, in the following singular manner-Sir, I have got your knife, pulling out a large clasp-knife, and strived to thrust it into Mr. Lawson's hands. — My knife ? exclaimed Mr Lawson; you have no knife of mine, for I have neither lost one nor did I ever have such a knife. The sailor still kept roaring out, Sir, the knife is your's, and you must take it. Upon this Mr. Lawson began to suspect there was something more than ordinary in the fellow's behaviour, and asked him what hea meant by such conduct. Why, Sir, said the sailor, I belong to the Ugly Club in London, and the members are each presented with a knife, which hey are bound by the laws of the club, to present to any person they meet uglier than themselves; now, Sir, as ...

BENT versus JONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 July 1848
BENT versus JONES. IN order to refute a false and malicious statement, emanating from an individual named ANDREW BENT, that I have bro- ken faith with him, and otherwise prac- tised deception on him, in reference to the publication of this Paper, I think it necessary to lay the following brief explanatidn of the matter before the Public, in order that any person into whose hands his ignorant and paltry &nbsp; effusion may have fallen may know the truth and judge for themselves. " Some three or four months since Mr. BENT met me and introduced a conversation about the printing business generally, during which I mentioned that I had an intention of removing either to Windsor or Goulburn, as my idea of going to Bathurst was frustrated by another printer, named Isaacs, getting the start of me. He, BENT, said that Goulburn would be the better place and that he had entertained the same idea some time, and that he would be will- ing to join me, if I would agree to go to Goul- burn —...
