WRECK OF AN EMIGRANT SHIP AND LOSS OF LIFE. Intelligence of the total wreck of the Hannah, freighted with nearly two hundred emigrants, bound to Quebec from Newry, was reported during the week at Lloyd's, the particulars having been received by the American man steamer America, nt Liver pool. The Hannah was a brig of between 150 and 200 tons burden, belonging to Maryport, and manned by a crew, it is said, of 1 2 seamen, under the command of Mr. Shaw, the master. On the 3rd of April last, she sailed from Newry with the above number of emigrants on board, having been previously overhauled and examined by her Majesty's emigration agent at that port. The emigrants chiefly consisted of agricul tural labourers, and their wives, and chil dren. The passage up to the 27th, consi dering .the season of the year, was favour able.' The vessel then encountered heavy winds, and a quantity of floating ice. On the morning of the 30th, the unfortunate ship struck on a reef of ice ; it was about four ...

PERILS AND PASTIMES OF AN EMIGRANT IN AUSTRALIA, VANCOUER'S ISLAND, AND CALIFORNIA. T. C. Newby. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

PERILS AND -PASTIMES OF AN EMIGRANT IN ..AUSTRALIA, VANCOUER'S ISLAND, AND CALIFORNIA. T. C. Newbi/. 'There are few questions of more vital im portance , than the question of emigration. 'Inhere is a period in the history of all na tions: when a superflux of capital and, a re dundance of population at home, the natural consequences or a high, state 01 longcon tinued prosperity, render occasional migra tions from the parent state, to other less crowded countries, a matter notof choice, but of. absolu te necessity. At some such crisis in our history we see this country to have arrived just now. Hence the question is forced, in a manner, upon the consideration of all parties who are at all interested in the subject, either as personally and prac tically affecting themselves, or abstractedly as a matter of mere philosophical specula tion. Of all the' countries to which the stream of emigration now flows, the largest and most important in every respect, whe ther we consider its extent, t...

MURDER MADE EASY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

MURDER MADE EASY. On Friday evening last, the 28th ult., Major John T., Brown and Dr. W. Liddell, both citizens of high character, had a ren contre which resulted fatally to the former. The attack was made by Major Brown with a double-barrelled shot gun, which he deliberately aimed, at Liddell, who was sitting in ; his office with Dr. Lipsconds. The design, however, was arrested by Mr. Meissinger, who, by a blow, lowered the muzzle of the piece, and the contents were lodged in the door-sill. Dr. Liddell then fired at Major Brown from the office, the charge of buck shot taking effect on the left side of the latter, and causing instant death. It. is proper to add, that Major Brown had given Dr. Liddell notice of an intention to kill him, which gave him time for preparation. Dr. Liddell immediately surrendered to the civil authorities ; and after examination of testimony was dis charged. Major Brown has always borne the character of an upright, peaceable, and law-abidingwcitizen, and h...

HORRIBLE MURDER AT LAKE BONNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

HORRIBLE MURDER' AT ! LAKE BONNEY. This' murder, 'which' was' partially reported in the Adelaide journals, has been fully en quired into by the police, arid.the particulars as detailed by them, evince the most brutal atrocity on the part of the murderer. The villain goes by the' name of Hamilton. He travelled over-land frona New South Wales with' a hawker named1 Jarvia. his wife| and the murdered man, Stone. On Sunday the 28th ultimo, he took a gun and pretended to go in search of a cow and calf into the bush. He hid himself until Stone came within a few yards of him, when he fired, and lodged the ball in the lower part of the abdomen. He then rushed at tlie cart to rob it, but Jarvis, seeing his object, fled, un dressed, into the neighbouring- forest, curry ing nearly all the money in a bag. Hamil ton then shot at Mrs. Jarvis, and the ball went through her cap, while the muzzle of the gun was so close to her head that the flame of the gun burnt her cap and hair. The ruffian' then r...

English Intelligence.   HOUSE OF COMMONS.           MONDAY, 4TH JUNE.   THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES.   MR. HAWES, in applying for leave to bring   in a Bill for the division of New South Wales, and for granting representative insti- tutions to the Australian Colonies, generally said, that it was framed with the view of   meeting the wishes of the colonists them- selves, and, as far as possible, proceeded on the basis of the new constitution which now existed in New South Wales. Some years ago, in 1847, his noble friend at the head of the Colonial Department addressed a despatch to the Governor, of New South Wales, raising the question of a new con- stitution for that colony, and holding out the constitution of New Zealand as a model. The colonists considered that despatch, and communicated, by resolutions adopted at public meetings, that any change in the exi...

Sydney News. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. Tuesday. The Speaker took the chair at twenty five minutes past three. FREDERICK'S VALLEY Mr. Darvall's motion for the addition of a constable to the police of Frederick's Val- ley. was postponed until Friday next, upon the motion of Mr. Parker. CATARRH IN SHEEP. Mr. Donaldson, pursuant to leave pre- viously obtained, brought in a Bill for the prevention of Catarrh, &c., in sheep. The Bill having been read a first time, it was ordered, upon the motion of Mr. Donaldson, to be printed, and read a second time on Friday next. Subsequently, how ever, Mr. Donaldson sought to alter the date affixed for the second reading until Thurs- day ; having heard, he said, from the Colo- nial Secretary, that it was intended to pro- rogue the House on Tuesday next, in which case it would be more convenient that the Bill should be read a third time on Friday. — The Speaker, however, ruled that the change and the order for the second reading could not be made.

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SAURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1849. THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS SAURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1849. THE PRESS.   WE commence our editorial labours by a short disquisition upon what we consider to be the duties of the Press. Its first, and   most obvious one is, in all cases, to adhere strictly to truth, not only in its relation of facts and occurrences, but in its treatment of principles particularly of those principles upon which its political existence is based. From any attachment to party - to serve private interests — to injure a political oppo- nent — or gain any temporary advantage over him — for any advantage thus gained can only be temporary — to do any, or all of these things, on no account ought this line of conduct to be deviated from. A strict consistency with the principles avowed at first setting out, ought to mark its course in its advocacy of, or opposition to, the leading questions of the day, or if any change of opinion should occur in con- sequence of new lights thrown upon those princi...

MR. MACKINNON'S BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

MR. MACKINNON'S BILL. The California mania has frightened Mr. Mackinnon and a number of his co-legis- lators out of their wits, and the upshot of their terror is the production by that gen- tleman of Bill to prevent the bounty im- migrant from leaving these shores, and       taking his labour to what he may suppose a better market. This Bill has met with the fate it richly merited. We are only sur- prised that such a Scythian attempt upon the liberty of the subject should have met   with the countenance it did. Mr. Mac- kinnon appeared to calculate that his brother members, like himself, were dead to every feeling-every principle but selfishness ; and that, like himself, they were ready to   sacrifice each generous impulse of their nature, every aspiration of freedom upon the   altar of mammon.   In this he made the very popular mistake     of' measuring men's minds a...

LORD GREY AND COLONIAL REBELLIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

LORD GREY AND COLONIAL REBELLIONS.     Two rebellions in two distant colonies, and occurring within a few short months of each other, characterise, but do not adorn the colonial administration of Lord Grey. Ceylon in the eastern, Canada in the western hemisphere, alike rise in arms against his rule. The Cingalese — oppressed with taxes, some of which are so bad that the Governor repeals them because he finds that they pro- duce no pence but infinite provocation, some of which are insulting to the religion and the church of the natives, and some of which are most injurious to those very classes by   whose industry the colony is benefited — are driven to arms to rid themselves of an in- tolerable nuisance. They are weak, ill- disciplined, and badly armed, and are easily put down; but the blame of 'having excited them into rebellion is not the less on that account. The Canadians are not weak — may prove to be well-disciplined and well- armed, and ...

The troops which, since October, have been in arms under his command; are dispersed. 'to their respective cantonments,, and on this, the last occasion of addressing them, Lord Grough desires to place on record his sense of the great service and exertions through^ which the army^of British India has been; now extended over the broad plains arid classic rivers and cities of this kingdom. The tide of conquest which heretofore rol led on the Punjaub from the west, has at length reached and overcome it from the east ; and that which Alexander attempted,* the British Indian Army has accomplished1.'

Prices   are the same as in our last week's report — say from 3s. 9d. to 4s. 3d., according to quality. FLOUR is dull of sale at £10 per ton. BRAN, wholesale, 10d. to 11d. per bushel.

CATTLE, SHEEP, &c. — Good stock, as has been for some time the case, is very scarce; at the same time the market is glutted with rubbish, not above one in ten of which the butchers will have at any price. Accounts received yesterday from the Mur- rumbidgee report that a large quantity of rain had fallen there, and that the river is almost bank high which will be the means of delaying the arrival of supply looked for from that quarter.
