SPEECH OF CHARLES DICKENS. ON THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

SPEECH OF CHARLES DICKENS   ON THE PRESS. I now give "The Press" that wonderful   lever Archimedes wished for, and which has moved the world ! which has impelled it onward in the path of knowledge, of         mercy, and of human improvement so far       that nothing in the world can ever roll it back. The mass of the people said Dr. Johnson very truly, in any country where     printing is unknown, must be barbarous. Sir Thomas More, the best, and the wisest,   and the greatest of men, however, before the press was established, died what was almost the natural death of the good, and     the wise, and the great. Sir Thomas More so clearly saw into futurity, and described from afar off the stupendous influence of     the ????, that he went out of his way to set up a printing-press ...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1848. TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1848. TO OUR READERS. In launching forth to the public the first number of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE, the proprietor (Mr. B. Isaacs) is fully aware of the risk of his speculation. Many of his friends, and he is sure, well wishers, have told him that he ought not to venture pub- lishing without a very respectable list of subscribers to commence with, but with all due deference to their kind and sincere cau- tion, he has still an obstinate opinion of his own, that once started, his paper will meet with encouragement from a discerning pub- lic, and is fully persuaded, that by impartial and upright conduct, he will ensure the good wishes of all whose opinions are worthy of notice. In politics he will be guided by his own judgment, and although he will patiently listen to all, he will be biased by none. He is fully aware that many enter- tain a notion, that a newspaper published in Bathurst may become a vehicle for disse- minating personalities and...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

ENGLISH NEWS. FROM Ireland, there is nothing of particular note, save the continued prevalence of fever, and much destitution ; agricultural laborers receiving only four-pence a day and miser- able diet as remuneration, and this wretched employment is even so difficult to obtain, that open-air meetings of the starving peasantry were being held in many places, protesting that food or employment should be procured by some means.   France, Spain, Russia, and Austria, are of course— immerged in diplomatic in- intrigues. — Letters state that civil war ap- peared imminent in Switzerland. From Italy the accounts received were conflicting. One party contending that the insurrections in Naples and Sicily were hourly becoming formidable. Another repeated that all bloodshed was on the point of ceasing, the king being determined to make concessions to the people.   A severe battle was fought between the Americans and the Mexicans, in August last. The loss of the Americ...

COMMITTAL FOR POISONING. THE BLACKS AT CLARENCE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

COMMITTAL FOR POISONING   THE BLACKS at CLARENCE RIVER. The Phoenix, which arrived last Saturday morning, brings intelligence of one of the most extensive squatters in the district, Mr. Coutts, being committed for the poisoning of several of the aborigines. The following particulars of the case are gained from a letter dated 18th January, which, after alluding to the loss of life and property which had occurred on the river, occasioned by the aborigines, and the un- protected manner in which the white popu- lation, had been left to fight their own battles, proceeds to state, that whilst it was perfectly unnecessary to give a recapitulation of events, yet it was necessary from this particular case to advert to bygone occur- rences. In the year 1840, Mr. Thomas Coutts located on this river, at Kangaroo Creek, about thirty miles inland, at that time his cattle numbered between eight and and nine hundred, his sheep upwards of five thousand ; but owing to the repeated depred...

POETRY. MY NATIVE LAND! [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

POETRY. MY NATIVE LAND ! MY NATIVE LAND! how thoughts of thee Wake up my slumbering memory ! Which now with vivid power and light, Brings thy loved scenes before my sight. MY NATIVE LAND ! though far away, Where northern winds around thee play ; No spot on earth where'er I've been, Has half the charms in thee I've seen. MY NATIVE LAND ! Where all that's dear To Husband, Father, Friend, appear ; I love thee well, and long once more To stand. upon thy favour'd shore. MY NATIVE LAND ! where knowledge dwells, And Freedom's fire each bosom swells, What tribe of man but looks to thee As guardian of true liberty ! MY NATIVE LAND ! whose influence wide Extends as far as ocean's tide, In every clime throughout the world There, is thy "Meteor Flag'"unfurled.     MY NATIVE LAND! where sacred truth       Moulds to her will thy tender youth ; On manhoods riper years doth shine, And gilds his path to life's decline. MY NATIVE LAND !...

ANECDOTE OF JUDGE CRANE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

ANECDOTE OF JUDGE CRANE. Shortly after the first Republican Constitution of the State of New York was framed and the judiciary system was established for the civil department, the Supreme Court or that branch of it called the "Circuit Court," was appointed for   one of the circuits in the county of Duchess, and the eccentric Judge Crane was to preside. Judge Crane was very wealthy, and highly respected for his public and private virtues, especially for his charitableness to the poor ; but he always dressed in a plain garb and would hardly ever wear any other coat, whatever the weather might be, and it was seldom that he rode when he went abroad, although he owned many valuable horses. On   the morning of the day in which the court was to begin, the Judge set out before day and walked gently on, through hail rain and snow to the appointed place. On arriving at Poughkeepsie, cold and wet, he walked to a tavern, where he found the landlady and her servants wer...

Police Office. LIBEL. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26. Bligh v. Park. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

Police Office LIBEL.       WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26. Bligh v. Park. Mr. Edwin Park, a Justice of the Peace, ap- peared on summons to answer a charge of libel preferred against him by Mr. Bligh. Mr. Wade- son appeared for the plaintiff', Mr. M'Intosh for     the defendant. This was a case that excited considerable interest, from the standing in society of the parties — the plaintiff, an eminent Solicitor in the town ; the defendant, a Magistrate of the Territory. At an early hour the neighbourhood of the Court House was thronged with a numerous assembly, anxious to be admitted to a hearing, and to know the result ; but shortly after the arrival of the   Magistrates it was intimated that the case   would be heard with closed doors. We noticed the HERALD reporter in attendance, and have been informed that he made application to be admitted to report proceedings, but had met with a polite refusal ; h...

PRIZE FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

PRIZE FIGHT. Although no advocates for, but strongly reprobating these disgraceful and brutalis- ing exhibitions, still we know that many of our subscribers will expect from us an ac- count of the battle, and as this is our first number it behoves us to endeavour to please all, for these reasons therefore, with reluc- tance, we enter on our task : — The spot fixed on for the scene of action was near the Swan Ponds, about six miles from Bathurst, on Friday, the 4th instant. Notwith- standing the morning was unpropitious, having a threatening and gloomy appearance, the road to the Swan Ponds was thronged at early dawn ; it appeared that every horse and vehicle in the towns of Bathurst and Kelso had been in requisition for the occasion. On arriving at the spot, we found a strong muster of the fancy and we have reason to believe that upwards of 500 persons were present. The fight was for £50 aside between George Allcott and Tiggey Hall. At about half past 8 o'clock, Allcott appeared fir...

Original Poetry. THE BLUE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

Original Poetry. THE BLUE MOUNTAINS. SONNET — BY J. G. Blue Mountains of Australia ! ye oh ye,   Whose wondrous beauties to the eye unfold, And make us feel the heart can ne'er grow cold — What'eer the number of our days may be —   Recall, and not without a sigh to me,   Scenes if less splendid than I now behold ' Round their great shoulders forest mantles fold, In all the pomp of rock-crowned majesty ! Yet elder-born of fame, and to the eye In bleak and savage grandeur far more wild, "Dark Loch-na-gar," and you ye Grampians high, Whose broad swords gleam round freedom's alters pil'd—     Here, though I breathe beneath a brighter sky, Still, still I am your own, your mountain child !

MOUNT VICTORIA. SONNET. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

MOUNT VICTORIA. SONNET. And this is Mount Victoria, glorious scene!   Flow on ye fountains of my heart, o'erflow In floods of bliss, and glow intensely glow   In gratitude my soul— now, now I've seen Heav'ns work divine, as tears had never been ! On either hand along the mountain's brow Are those the ruin'd castles in a row,   Deep wooded vales and browsing herds between,   Where dwelt the mighty in the days of old— The giants of the earth when earth was young, Unfading garland on the brow of time, Dark forest, whose wild glens I now behold : How from the mind the world at once is flung, As perched on high we view thy scenes sublime !

BATHURST MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 February 1848

BATHURST MARKET. HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR and the Executive Council having acceded to the wishes of the inhabitants of the town for the establishment of a market, and commis- sioners having been elected and Gazetted, the first subject for their consideration will be to fix on a site for holding the same. On this subject there are various opinions, and we regret to observe, many selfish ones : some are for a market on the square, where the church is building; this being the most   valuable ground in the town, it is not at all likely that the government will grant any portion of it for such purpose, nor is it at all desirable that a market-place should be established on any portion of this block of land, as it would be a disfigurement to the most respectable part of the town, unless we can afford to go to an expense of three or four thousand pounds to build handsome   stalls, &c. One very disinterested indi- vidual, we understand, has been generous...

POETRY. THE YOUNG EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

;£'©1 TRY. THE YOUNG EARTH. [BY CHARLES HACKAY, L. h. D.] ' The Earth gives signs of age, disease, and fickleness. It yields its increase grudgingly, and demands an exorbitant fee beforehand, in toil and sweat, from the husbandman. It has ill- turns, or paroxysms, when it rouses the ocean into a tempest, and makes sport of navies, strewing the shore with wrecks and carcasses of men. It rocks a continent or sinks an island ; shaking mas sive cities into countless fragments, and burying its wretched inhabitants in indis criminate ruin ; anon it writhes and groans in mortal agony, and finds relief only by disgorging its fiery bowels, burying cities and villages in burning graves. The earth is old and feeble, and must needs groan on until it renews its prime.' — Miseries and Liabilities of the Present Life, iOld Earth ! Young Earth .' though myriad years, Since Time's primeval morn ; She may have flourished 'mid the spheres Before a man was born. Still young ; though race succeeding rac...

THE LATE CHARLES MATHEWS, AND PADDY CLIPEM. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

THE LATE CHARLES MATHEWS, AND PADDY CLIP'EM. This celebrated mimic, as well as superior actor, in his first outset in theatrical life experienced as many vicisitudes and priva tions as any actor who ever trod the boards of a provincial theatre, But, nevertheless, he ''would be an actor,' in spite of all the difficulties which presented themselves, and to obtain a first-rate position on the metro politan stage was his ambition. There is most certainly a mania about acting in young aspirants ; and the late Charles Mathews, like several others that can be mentioned, left an excellent home, a kind father and mother, and a fine prospect in life, to go ?' vagabondising' (or rather strolling), for such was the term a few years ago when provincial playhouses were talked about. Mathews' first trip was in several obscure towns in Ireland, in what was. termed a ' sharing' company, but — top frequently— anything like a ' share' was eutirely ont of the question ; besides, the manager was an exce...

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. ?-...-. . Bathurst, February 10, 1848.
