THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 20, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." SANATORY REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

THE BATHURST TREE PRESS. . . / . . .; j -- ? . SATURDAY, JULY 20,1850. ^'MAONA EST VE1UTAS EX PRiGVALEBIT.' SANATORY REFORM. A BiLii has been introd .iced by the Govern ment with the object of conferring power ?upon the Governor to bring the Sydney Slaughter-house Act, which was passed last -session, into active operation in other towns which may appear to require the enforce ment of its sanatory regulations. Ihe at tention which has Jatterly been given to the ? question of sanitory reform in ths mother country, promises to work great social changes, and to establish a guardianship ?over the health and comfort of the .people. The ravages of disease are proved by scientific research, to be most fearful ?and destructive in localities where a vitiated -atmosphere, stagnant by confinement, and -absorbing its pestiferous elements fronva hundred sources, has infused its poison into the human constitution, and predisposed it to disease.

THE RUSSIAN AVALANCHE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

THE RUSSIAN AVALANCHE. (From the Nation) We have traced the historical and political growth of Russia. We have shown how the spirit of conquest entwined itself about each step of her haughty career, and ani mates her now in every fibre. Where is the barrier to check her pro gress? -? Is it Austria or Prussia ? These were once likened in respect of their position in Europe, to the ' Pillars of Hercules. There was always more of diplomatic cant, than of honest truth, in this red-tape maxim, but whatever obstacle Austria may have 'offered to Russian inroad, Austria herself has ?levelled : it, by having ', summoned the invader to help her in extirpating life and liberty from the homes of the Hungarians. And the present King of Prussia could be no very active or formidable breakwater to the Russian tide, should it spread its waves westward. In case the Servo -Croatian rising grew formidable, the Kaiser may again invite the Czar to lend him lances to keep it down. Would the Muscovite re c...

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

Extracts. Diversities op Savage Races — The Northern Desert of Africa divides two races of men who belong originally to the same part of the globe, arid whose unreconciled discord appears as ancient as the myth us of Osiris and Typhon. North of the Atlas there dwelt nations with long and straight hair, of sallow complexion and Caucasian features. On the south of the Senegal, to wards Soudan, live hordes of savages in many different stages of civilization. In Central Asia the Mongolian Steppe divides Siberian barbarism from the ancient civil ization of the peninsula of India. The South American Steppes form the boundary of a partial European civilization. To the north, between the mountains of Venezuela and the Caribbean sea, we find commercial cities, (neat villages, and carefully cultivated fields.; Even the love of art, and scientific culture, together with the nobler desire of civil freedom, have long been awakened there. Towards the south the Steppe ter minates in a savage wilde...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Arrival of the Second JunoB. — The second judge. Mr. Crawford, has arrived by the Midlothian, accompanied by his lady and three children. — South Australian. The Buriia Burra Minks. — The quan tity of ore raised at the Burra Mine during the last two months has been, on a rough estimate, about 5000 tons — about double the amount of any former take. '. This is in consequence of a new system of working commenced in April last, as an experiment, by which the miners were encouraged to raise the poorer ores, which under the old arrangements were neglected. The effect of the experiment has yet to be tried ; it is likely to prove profitable : but it must not be supposed that the mine is actually yield ing double what it did before. — South Australian. Keeping the Judges out of the New Court House.— On Thursday last the offi cials connected with the administration of justice were taken aback by the contractor refusing to admit them' to the new Court house.

EXECUTION AT BRISBANE, MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

EXECUTION AT BRISBANE; MORETON ?- --P '???/: BAY. HV ::. ? ; (Froni the Moreton Bay Courier.) Thi3 morning (Monday, July 8th,) Jacob Wagner and Patrick Fitzgerald were hanged in front of Brisbane gaol, for wilful murder, and the fearful spectacle will not soon be forgotten by those who witnessed it. During last week the prisoners, as j previously stated, had preserved their usual de. : meanour generally. On one occasion, in the early pait of the week, the nerve of Wagner seemed to l! forsake' him ; but proper stimulants, prescribed by [?' the visiting surgeon, speedily restored him. ' The r erection of the scaffold for the execution was com- L menced on Friday night late, but owing to some [; mismanagement on the part of those employed in i the unpleasant office, the work was but little ad- [?:. vanced at ten o'clock next morning.

I CUI/FIVATIONr OE MADDEN: ' I fFrom the Morning Herald.) |We published some eighteen months. ago a 1 letter referring to communications which | \ve Had inserted a. few years past on the.Bub Hect of a valuable European production j^hich appeared to be particularly suited to , our soil and climate, and promised, if pro Iperly cultivated, to become a valuable arti ''?? cle of export.

COLONIAL RESOURCES. . A correspondent of- the ' Victoria Colonist1 suggests the manufacture of gluej as. one for which, this colony possesses peculiar re sources: 'he says; I therefore send you the following practical account of the pro cess, which may draw to it the attention of some of our tanners? Fronts the commercial' value of the article and the increasing, de mand, it would doubtless prove remunera tive. The substances from which glue is made, are, the pairing of ox or.other thick hides, the refuse of tanneries, of the leather iresser, and all animal skin; the ten Ions and other offal of slaughter-houses, yielding an inferior quality. The mate rials are put into tanks and subjected, to a maceration in milk of lime,, changed two ar three times, for, about a fortnight.

THE GREEK QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

THE GREEK QUESTION. (From the Times, March 16.) The short explanation which was given last night in the House of Lords with reference to one material point in the late unfortunate occurrence in Greece has -at least served to remove that imputation of indifference to which the prolonged silence of Parliament had exposed the statesmen of this country, and has shown a desire on the part of the Government to hasten the termination of their hostile measures towards King Otho and his subjects, For although Lord Stanley yielded to the Marquis of Lans downe's strong appeal, and postponed every allusion to the policy and justice of these measures, it was manifest from the spirit evinced on both sides of the House of Lords that the conclusion of our present painful and embarrassing situation in Greece is at least as earnestly desired by the most emi nent members of the Cabinet as it is by the country at large. Lord Stanley's question, as it was put, related exclusively to the dates in the pro...
