THE SYDNEY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

THE SYDNEY ELECTION. On Tuesday last, the nomination of candi dates for the representation of the City of Sydney, took place at hustings erected for the nurnose in Macauarie-nlace. Accord ing to the Sydney Morning Herald, about 4000 person had assembled before the ter mination of the proceedings. The Reverend Dr. Lang was proposed by Mr. Wilshire and seconded by Mr. Pite. Mr. John Rose Holden was proposed by Mr. G. 11. Nichols and seconded by Mr. Purefoy. Dr. Lang made a very effective speech, in the course of which he reviewed the most remarkable circumstances in his past career, and entered into defence of some of the many charges recently brought against him. He declared himself favourable to the principles of Mr. i Wentworth's Clerical exclusion Bill, but argued that there were exceptions to all general rules, and that, therefore, he was the exception to the application of Mr. Went worth's rule. He referred to Dr. Wither spoon who as is well-known, took a promi nent part in the ...

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

NEW ZEALAND. The Sped alor urges on the colonists the advantages that would accrue to the colony from making every effort, at this time, to forward the preparation of tfew Zealand flax for export to Sydney and the other Australian colonies, on the ground that the high price of Manilla hemp has created a great scarcity of wool lashing in these colo nies, and that if sufficient New Zealand flax was forwarded to supply the demand during the ensuing wool season, it would not only secure a present monopoly of the market, but its qualities would ever after secure it the highest price. — Maitland Mer cury. Otago. —II. M. steamer Acheron arrived on Thursday from Otago after two days passage; We have received by this oppor tunity files of the Otago News to June 8.

A TALE OF THE GREAT DESERT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

ArTALE OF THE GREAT DESERT; Colonel Eugene Daumas, formerly of the Franco- Algerian Army, but now an explorer of the interior, has recently published an interesting account of his journey to the kingdom of Houassa, the country of the negroes, in the interior of Africa, from which some curious particulars may be gathered. The care of. observing and noting cor rectly is not the only one ?with which a tra veller has to concern himself in these arid regions. In regard to water, which is everywhere scarce, the following precautions are to be observed, and, possibly, they may be useful on occasion at home. ' Drink,' says the Arab, ' frono the mouth of a viper if you will, but never drink from the mouth of your leathern bottle or case, which the journey has shaken and the sun heated, without first exposing the contents to the air in a cup.' ' After having eaten meat, never drink immediately, or you may, perhaps, drink your, death.'* ??? If the west wind has sucked up the contents of your w...

There was something in expressibly awful about this execration;, and I confess that f felt a strong internal conviction that the next day's paper would tfeem with horrible railway accidents in every column. 'I did my utmost to op pose 'em,' said the stage' coachman, in soft ened accents. 'I wos the last that guv in ; I kep losing day after day, and yet I worked on ; I wos determined to doo my dooty, and I druv a coach the last day with an old 'oman and a carpet bag inside, and -seven whopping empty portmanteaus out side: I was determined at my last kick to have some passengers to show to the rail, so I.took my wife and children, cos nobody elsewould'nt go, and then guv in.

SIGNS OF DECAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

SIGNS OF DECAY, v ^'?^ (From the Illustrated London News.') Wb are told, on high authority, that there is nothing new under the sun, that what has been may be again — that all things re volve in an old appointed circle-r-that for empires as well as individuals there is a pe riod of growth and a period of decay — and that neither the mighty nor the humble can escape the operation of the invariable law which fixes a penalty for every transgres sion, and punishes with the same severity the high and the lowly. A modern writer, struct with the power of these old truths, and tracing in the past and the present history of Great Britain the operation of causes which must, in the ful nesB of time, produce its fall, has drawn a vivid picture of a New Zealander sitting upon a ruined arch of London bridge, and moralising upon the fate of the once mighty empire, become as much a thing of the past us Rome, Greece, and Assyria. But when ?we read the eloquent page, we smile at the .prediction of th...

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PRÆVALEBIT." STEAM COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 July 1850

THE BATHURST TREE PRESS SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1850. ' MAGNA BST VERITAS EX PE-fflVALEBIT.' STEAM COMMUNICATION. In a former article we endeavoured to point out the advantages which would result to the colonists from the introduction of rail way communication, which advantages would principally arise from the shortening the space of time occupied in travelling from one point of country to another : and if, as the experience of a practical age fully proves, the internal commercial relations of a country are benefitted, by the economy of time, in the enormous saving effected by employing the loco-motive, its foreign trade is not the less so, by the application of steam to water communication. It must be of quite as much consequence to the pecuniary, politi cal, and social interests of the people of New South Wales, that quick transit should be established between Sydney and Liverpool or London, as between the same place and Bathurst or Goulburn ; for if the latter places are dependant upo...

Ztocal Sntellig-ence. Carcoar Murder. — The following addi tional particulnrs concerning the murder at Omcoar,- have come to hand since our last publication. The deed of blood was com muted on the road. The track of the boot of deceased, the toe part of which hud sunk in the ground, where he fell, as if from a blow from behind, was distinctly perceived, The body of deceased had been dragged by the skirts of the coat in a backward direc tion to a .iistance of 25 to 30 yards from the road, and placed behind a tree as if to prevent its being readily seen. One of his arms was thrown back against the tree. A piece of paper was found near the spot, in which was said to have been folded a cheque for £20. The dog is kept at the watch-house in (we fear) the delusive hope that he may at some future % period bo instrumental in detecting the murderer. The Turf.— We understand that a privates match has been made between Messrs. De Clouct and Hoot], the former backing liis Larry o' Gaff against M...

AN OLD JOKE IN A NEW DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

AN OLD JOKE IN A NEW DRESS. An old lawyer in the city of New York tells a good joke about one of his clients. We have read or heard something like it before, but, even if we have, so good a story will bear repetition. Here it is : — A fellow had been arraigned, before the police for steal ing a set of silver spoons. The stolen ar ticles were found upon the culprit, and there was no use in attempting to deny the charge. Lawyer G ? was applied to by the prisoner as counsel ; and seeing no es cape for his client except in the plea of in sanity or idiocy, he instructed the fellow to put on as silly a look as possible, and when any question was put to him, to utter in a drawling manner, with idiotic expression, the word ' Spoons.' If successful, the fee will be twenty dollars. The court pro ceeded to business -, the charge was read, and the question put to the prisoner — ' Guilty or Not Guilty ?' ' Spoons !' ejaculated the culprit. The Court put several questions to him, but ' Spoons, sp...

PROTECTION AND FREE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

PROTECTION AND FREE TRADE. (From tlie Fxpress.) To form a judgment of the relative merits and prospects of protection and free trade, one has but to compare the simultaneous meetings at Sheffield and as York. The one is all confidence, the other all faltering ; the one calm reasoning, the other ribald abuse. At York the Duke of Cleveland comes forward to declare that no relapse to pro tection is to be hoped from the present par liament. The House of Commons would say that the distress was temporary, owing to other causes than free trade, and the ex periment not worked out. His grace's hope, therefore, was soley in the future. The duke's arguments on another important point were, indeed identical with Mr. Cob den's. For he admitted that the distress as yet had only affected the tenant, without reaching the landlord. What did Mr. Cobden say else, when he declared that, it was a question of rent, and that if tenant and landlord would put their shoulders to gether and share the burden b...

Sydney News. THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

Sydney News. THE ELECTION. fFrom the People's Advocate.) ? On Wednesday morning1, exactly at nine o'clock, the polling commenced in each of the wards, and was carried on throughout the day with considerable spirit. From the first, Dr. Lang was ahead on the gross poll, but it was only in Cook and Brisbane Wards that the majority was maintained uninterruptedly throughout the day. In Phillip Ward the contest was very close, each candidate for a long time polling vote for vote, and at the close of the poll the majority in this ward in favor of Holden was only ten. Each side worked most in defatigably, and never was there in Sydney an election more closely or warmly con tested, and throughout the whole day the greatest good humour prevailed. On the close of the poll, his Worship the Mayor announced the state of the poll at the Town Hall, where some thousands of persons were congregated. His Worship having thanked the electors for their conduct on the occasion, stated that, as far as coul...

w Varieties. A little nonsense now and then, Is relished by the wisest men. Why is a scrag of mutton like a great warrior ? Because it is a bony part (Bonaparte). Why is a man in a passion like '59 minutes past 12 o'clock ? — Because he is ready to strike one.
