THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." Late English News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

THE- BATHURST MEE PRESS SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 1850. ?'MAONA E8T VERITAS El PILffiVALEBIT.' Xiate English News. {From the Adelaide Times, July, 20.) -Thb Bo j/ne from London. This vessel ar rived on Saturday last, and brings 130 ^passengers, but no mail. She left London on the 9th, and Plymouth on the 25th, but has no later papers than the 21st of March, and the only important scrap of intelli gence these papers contain is the follow ing:— - THREATENED RESIGNATION OF THE MINISTRY. A Meeting of . Members of Parliament, supporters of the present Government, took place on Tuesday} at Downing- street. About 160 were present. Lord John Russell addressed the meet ing. He told them, that if Mr. Hutt's motion for that evening,^ relative to the slave-trade, were' carried, he would cer tainly resign the office he held. Mr. Hume did not see the necessity of Lord John Russell giving up office, even if Mr. Hutt carried his motion. Lord Palraerston repeated what Lord John Russell stated as the cours...

Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

Gleanings. What is Love, — Thou demandest what is love % — It is that powerful attraction to wards all that we conceive, or fear, or hope beyond ourselves, when we find within our own thoughts the chasm of an insufficient void, and seek to awaken in all things that are, a community with what we experience in ourselves. If we reason, we would be understood ; if we imagine, we would that the airy children of our brain were born anew within another's ; if we feel, we would that another's nerves should vibrate to our own, that the beams of their eyes should kindle at once, and mix and melt into our own ; that lips of motionless ice should not reply to lips quivering and burning with the hearts' best blood. This is Love. This is the bond and the sanction which connects not only man with man, but with every thing that exists. We are born into the world, and there is something within us which, from the instant that we live, more and more thirsts after its likeness. — Shelley. The Origin of...

THE LAST OF THE (SOUTH) DEFIANCE COACH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

THE LAST OF THE (SOUTH) DEFI ANCE COACH. (From the Aberdeen Herald.) This celebrated coach, which we have often had to notice as a credit to her proprietors and the district to which she belongs, fin ished her career on Wednesday afternoon, having run exactly twenty years and four months. Notwithstanding the great pace at which she travelled, twelve and thirteen miles an hour, carrying her 'passengers nearly 130 miles in thirteen hours, and al lowing them breakfast and dinner, and other stoppages by the way, no casualty ever occurred to her, with the exception of the breaking of a pole, in 1 847, by which the coach was upset, and, unfortunately, one gentleman very severely injured. It may, we thiak, be safely assumed, that the annals of coaching do not furnish another instance of such lengthened service, of a kind involving so much risk, with so little damage done ; and the fact, we believe, is only to be accounted for by the corabina | tion of spirit, enterprise, and liberality, j ...

PEPPER'S CREEK POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

PEPPER'S CREEK POST OFFICE. The people of the neigbourhood of Pepper's Creek, Dunn's Plains, the Summerhill Mine, and the surrounding country, memo rialised the Postmaster- General last year, upon the desirability of establishing postal communication between Pepper's Creek and Bathurst. Although the memorial was fa vourably received by that official, the appli cation was made too late in the season to be of any service, as the Estimates had been previously disposed of, but the memorialists were encouraged to repeat their application, before the passing of the Estimates for the following year. They are now bestirring themselves, and have prepared a memorial for signature, of which the following is a copy: — Memorial of the Inhabitants of Campbell' s River, Abercrombie River, Pepper's Creek, Foster's Valley, Dunn's plains, and the surrounding country, to the Postmaster-General, We, the undersigned Farmers, Graziers, Miners, Publicans, and others, of Campbell's and the Aber crombie Riv...

THE FIRST COACH IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

THE FIRST COACH IN CHINA'. (From BlacTcwood.) Amongst the presents carried out by our first embassy to that country was a state coach. It had been specially selected as a personal gift by George III. ; but the exact pode of using it was a mystery at Pekin. The ambassador, indeed, (Lord Macartney) bad made some dim and imperfect explana tions upon the point, but as his Excellency communicated these in a diplomatic whis per, at the very moment of his departure, the celestial mind was very feebly illumi nated1; and it became necessary to call a cabinet council on the grand state question, 'Where -was the Emperor to sit?' The hammer-cloth happened to be unusually gorgeous,- and partly on that consideration, but partly also because the box offered the most elevated seat, and undeniably went foremost, it was resolved by acclamation that the box was the imperial place, and, for the scoundrel who drove, be might sit where he could find a perch. The horses, therefore, being harnessed, under ...

LORD PALMERSTON'S POLICY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

LORD PALMERSTON'S POLICY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN. CFrom the Sunday Times.) 'It is the character of faction to attack a go vernment or an administration through thick -and thin, to refuse it credit for its wisest acts, to caricature its designs, and to throw ridicule and contempt on its members. This character has never been ours. Our blame or our praise has been based on our con victions, and it may often happen, as at pre sent, that we may feel ourselves under the necessity of putting forward on the self same day an attack and a defence of go vernment. We blame the home policy of ministers — we mean in reference to parti cular subjects — while we applaud their foreign policy, which is equally honourable to them as statesmen and as Englishmen. Strange to say, the Times, generally mi nisterial in what regards our domestic con cerns, is invincibly hostile to Lord Palraer ston. It adopted many years ago the creed of Lord Aberdeen, in which the leading ar ticle of faith was that we ought t...

MR. BUCKINGHAM AT CARLISLE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

MR. BUCKINGHAM AT CARLISLE. {From the Simday Times.) Mr. Buckingham, we find, has been deli vering a long lecture at Carlisle. The subject is most interesting as well as com prehensive, being entitled the Past, the Present, and the Future. With respect to the lecture, a published copy of which has been forwarded to us, it appears that the honorable gentleman has great confidence in the gradual and peaceable progress of reform. He very properly rlRprecat.es any thing like physical force, and lays it down as his first principle that it is by moral agi tation, and by that alone, that those great measures are to be carried by which the great interests of freedom are to be pro moted, and the happiness of nations con solidated and secured. Araong'st the more prominent reforms to which he points as absolutely necessary for attaining the ends in view, we may briefly enumerate the fol« lowing : — A national system of education, a separation of church and state — a revised system of taxation—...

Oi'C&CKitl CocccsJpaitScuce* To the Editor of The Baxhursx Free Press. Sir, — I forward you the following remarkable case of horse-stealing for publication, should you deem it worthy a place in your columns. The, extent to which, this species of depredation upon property in the far interior is (carried on, is really alarming, and sh^ws the necessity of some steps being taken by the .Legislature for its protection. A few years more, without Mounted Police, and the denizens of , the bush must call ypon the assistance of Judge Lynch, or reconcile themselves to sharing their -, hard-earned property with the, systematic marauders ? who obtain a livelihood by robbing one portion of ' the colony and selling to another. / - A Mr. Brougham, of the Edwards River, invite J the ladies -and^gentlemen of his neighbourhood to : his residepr.e a short time ago. .flMw^^n was responded to by .parties rcsidin^^^^^H distances; some ten, some fifteenr^^^^^^^T ;wenty miles distant, and they trave...

Colonial Extracts. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

Colonial Sstracfcs PORT PHILLIP. Disease among Cattle. — A most mys terious disease is raging among cattle on- the Murrumbidgee and towards Sydney ; it has caused a great deal of alarm from its very mystery, for no one (as far as I have heard) can make out what it is, or what is its cause. It is said to attack all kinds of cattle indiscriminately — young and old, fat and lean. Cattle, which a few, minutes previously were seemingly in the best pos sible condition, have been attacked, and died in a few seconds; nor does the danger end here, for animals eating of; the flesh have beea in turn attacked in, the same way, and died as suddenly. I believe it to be a fact that a man who skinned a bullock thus attacked died in the same mysterious way, and I have lately heard of another who lost his arm through the same cause. Cattle travelling towards Sydney have been attacked and die in considerable numbers. Some consider the disease to be contagious ; others; think it is not ; but no one can...

NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. Agreeably, to our anticipations, Mr. Nichols asked for and obtained leave to bring in a bill on Friday week for the' removal of the newspaper tax The initiation of the measure elicited neither dis cussion nor opposition. There was therefore no opportunity of ascertaining the temper of the House upon it. From the recent declaration of , the honorable the Colonial Secretary when ques tioned by Mr. Nichols as to t!ie intentions of Go vernment respecting the postage on newspapers we may safely calculate upon all the opposition at its control, and should not be in the least disap pointed to see the official members and nominees rowing in one boat together. Our hopes rest principally in the representative portion of the As- : sembly, upon whom, independently of their own private opinions, the petitions which have crowded into the House, from all parts of the colony, backed by the influence of the whole tfolonial Press, must have made some impression. The trial of streng...

THE RETURN OF DR. LANG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

THE RETURN OF DR. LA.NG. On a former occasion when speaking of the merits of the two.-vinrliHaf^s_ for thp ffiprfi sentation of the City of Sydney, we avowed our decided preference for Mr. Holden. We stated the grounds upon which we did so, and had Mr. Holden remained consistent with his declared principles at the first meeting1 of his supporters at the Royal Hotel, our preference would have remained unaltered. The nomination day, however, satisfied us as to Mr. Holden's inflexibility of principle and purpose. After declaring himself, on the former occasion, unfavor able to the resumption of transDortation in any shape, he had the imbecility or auda city—we know not which to term it—to tell the assembled people of Sydney that he was not disinclined to renew transportation, in some such modified form as to render it un obnoxious, having first, in case of his elec tion, obtained the sanction of a majority of his constituents for its renewal. This con temptible time-serving met with it...

ENGLISH EMIGRANTS IN ILLINOIS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 August 1850

ENGLISH EMIGRANTS IN ILLINOIS. The following letter from an emigrant who went to America in the autumn of last year has been publised in the Lincolnshire Times : ' Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois, U.S., Sept. 14, 1849.— Dear Sir,— We are now settled in a pleasant country, in which most of the settlers are English, and nearly all of them of the class of farm labourers. They were for the most part in needy cir cumstances ; some of them had not more than half a dollar on coming hers, yet, by industry and perseverance, most of them are well off, and none of them in in digent circumstances. I bought an im proved farm of 215 acres, with a good farm house on it, a log bavn and stables for eight horses, a log house, a good young orchard, and three wells, for 3000 dollars. We have abundance of apples and peaches, more than sufficient for the supply of our family. I did this rather than endure the trouble and inconvenience of making a farm out of a rough prairie, it is a job I was not w...

NEW ZEAL AND. The ' Acheron's' Surveys. — In our last number we extracted from the Otago News a short notice of H.M. steamer, Acheron. We are glad to.be able to furnish our readers, in addition to what has been previously stated, with the following sketch of the progress of the surveys of the Middle Island by the officers of that vessel under the direction of Captain Stokes. During the months of March, April, and May the Acheron has been principally employed in Fonveaux Straits and about Stewart's Is Jand. The coast from Otago to Preserva tion Harbour has also been examined, thus completing the shores of N. and E. coasts of the Middle Island from Cape Farewell to Preservation Harbour. The various ship harbours of Stewart's Island, with those of the Bluff and New River, have been com pletely surveyed, and the Navigation of Fonveaux Straits cleared of many of the dangers which by the old chart would alarm the stranger. We are gratified to learn that the positions of New Zealand laid d...
