CONDUCT AT PUBLIC MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

CONDUCT AT PUBLIC MEETINGS. [From Chambers's Information for the People] THE right of meeting together publicly to discuss matters connected with our social condition, being so invaluable a prerogative, it is right and fitting that all young men entering into the busy scenes of life should make themselves well acquainted with the rules which have been established by gene ral consent for the proper conducting of such assemblages. According to usage, a public meeting is not constituted until a person be appointed to preside, or to ' take the chair." Without this ceremony, the meeting is a tumultuary assembly, or a mob. The first movement is, therefore, the appointment of a chairman. This functionary, on taking his seat, is for the time, supreme in the meeting. His chief duty is the preservation of order. He allows only one to speak at a time, giving the preference to him who has first caught his eye in the act of rising, and giving every speaker a fair hearing. Another of his chief du...

MINIMUM PRICE OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

MINIMUM PRICE OF LAND. PAPER delivered to the Committee of the House of Lords on Colonization from Ire land, by Mr. Justice THEIRY :- In reference to the rule of making £1 an acre the minimum upset price of land in New South Wales I venture to suggest that, to abide by such a rule is equivalent to a declaration that Government is not disposed to sell the Crown lands of the colony, but to retain them in its own hands. It is certain that a large portion of the lands of the colony, from their vast extent, must remain for very many years undisposed of, for it is on ly by gradual sales that a sale of these lands can, without detriment to the public inter est, be effected; but the evil of the present minimum upset price is, that it checks the girdual disposal of the land, and causes it to appear that the settled policy of the Govern ment is to restrain and discourage sale alto gether, and to substitute permissive occupa tion under lease for legal and permanent possession by purchase.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

TO: CORRESPONDENTS. ThE subject of Samuel Crouch's letter is not of suf ficient general interest for publication. RAT.PH MAR1ALL wishes to know " if Magistrates wio are squatting on Government land with four teen hundred or two-thousand sheep at each station, are qualified to sit in judgment on cases under the Squatting Act, and fine their poor fellow-squatters who possess only ten or twenty head of cattle, and who have offered Go vernment thirty pounds for thirty acres of land And have been refused." We know of nothing in the Squatting Act which would disqualify such Justices acting in the cases alluded to. If cases are brought before them by an " Informer" they mmust conviet if there is evidence to substan tiate the charge of unlawfully occupying. If the Magistrates alluded to are squatting without a licence they can be proceeded against by infor mation. THE GOULBURN HERALD. SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1849.

HIGHLY IMPORTANT TO SMALL SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

HIGHLY IMPORTANT TO SMALL SQUATTERS. WE understand that a surveying party un der the auspices of the Government have passed through this township, who, if we can believe report, are principally engaged in laying out small farms in the various parts suitable for agricultural purposes, and which are to be put up for sale by the Government in the usual manner. We believe that the surveyeos are also empowered to measure off small farms at the request of intending pur chasers. The poor' class of squatters will no doubt avail themselves of the opportunity of securing the homesteads they now occu py, and to that end should put themselves in communication with the surveyors with out delay. If we are correct in our information as to the gentlemen who form the above party, Swe are sure, from our personal knowledge of them, that the industrious class of humble squatters will meet with every attention at. their hands:

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." SBa,-It being well known that it has always been my study and care to protect the property and per sons of every one visiting my establishment, I beg to request you will contradict a statement which ap. peared in last week's Herald, where it says a person named Meehan was drinking in my house, and that while in the tap-room, one Sullivan attempted to pick his pooket. The facts are these-Meehan came into my house and had one glass only, and on finding he was in a sttde of inebriety, I peremptorily refused to let himn have any more, on whichihe left the house and made an effort to mount his horse, when he was joined by another person, with whom he proceeded up Mon tague-street, and soon after was brought back with. out his horse, when it seems the party was taken in custody for drunkenness, and the attempt at pick. pocketing was detected, which occurred, not inl my tap-room, nor even on leaving my house, but on re turning from some other house,...

PROSPECTS OF THE FREE LABORER [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

PROSPECTS OF THE FREE LABORER WHAT is to done with the Immigrants, who are arriving in such numbers from the mo ther country? This is a question of very great importance; but as convicts are soon to be landed on our shores, in what num bers it is now impossible to say, the question assumes a greater importance. It appears the convicts are to be scattered throughout the interior, let out to the squatters who choose to accept of them. In this case, we fear these men will receive a pretty general acceptance, which will cause the dismissal of the parties now hired as shepherds, &c. on the establishments in the interior. As a consequence, those free shepherds will be 'forced in upon the inner districts, where there will be nothing for them to do; for the employers of labour being supplied from the newly-arrived immigrants, cannot pro vide employment for them. In this way there will arise the anomaly of Immigrants from home pressing on the labour market, aid the discharged servant...

To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Sts,--Having in previous numbers of your valuable journal reverted to the Acts relative to Licensed Hawkers and Road-side Inns, I will now venture to offer a few remarks upon the subject of Licensed Auctioneers in Country Districts. At present any Auctioneer, wishing to take out a license to sell in his district, pays the sum of two pounds: if he holds a general license to sell in any part of the colony, the amount is fifteen pounds. Without a country auctioneer takes out a general license, he is, of course, not permitted to effect any sales out of the district in which he resides, which, in many instances, is confined to a narrow compass, and as the number of sales to any serious amount effected in the interior are small, (the majority of the larger ones being held in Sydney) it does not warrant him paying the heavy sum of fifteen pounds for a general license; such being the case, it is the general opinion of parties interested, that it woul...

IRISH HELPLESSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

IRISH HELPLESSNESS. [From Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper.] THE State Trials in Ireland are now over though it remains for the Judges of the Court of Queen's Bench to determine whc ther they are to be of any effect; or whether like most other acts of the officials for the time being in Ireland, they are to be nulli fied by the blunders of those who had to conduct them. But apart from the conse quences which may spring out of the writs of error that have yet to be decided upon, there is enough in the aspect of Irish affairs to cause dismay to even a much more capa ble and much firmer government than that of Lord John Russell. The Clare Journal, speaking of the state of the country, says " The present state of the country and still more dismal prospects which lie before us, appear to have seriously alarmed the middle classes of the population, who are now emi grating from all parts, taking with them whatever still remains to them, before they are overwhelmed in the vortex of destitution and ...

NATIONAL GREATNESS AND NATIONAL EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

NATIONAL GREATNESS AND NA TIONAL EMIGRATION. [From Lloyd's Weekly London Paper.] ALL past history abounds with instan ces of. the frailty of human grandeur. It were not unreasonable to think that the example and fate of ancient nations should have taught modern nations a lesson of the most impressive kind, and have guarded them against running upon those shoals and quicksands, upon which so many vessels of state have foundered. Such is human thoughtlessness or human weakness, however, or such the predilection for immediate and temporary advantage, that the best interests of nations-the well-being and happiness of the great mass of the people--have been sa crificed, in modern as in ancient times-at the shrine of temporary glory and gratifica tion. From the meanest origin, and by the most contemptible of means, Rome became mistress of the world. The power which gave her universal empire however, sufficed not to retain it for her. Rapine begat bold ness, and then necessity compelled br...

DREADFUL FIRES IN NEW YORK, DESTRUCTION OF 154 HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

DREADFUL FIRES IN NEW YORK, DESTRUCTION OF 154 HORSES. ON Sunday morning, the 19th ultimo, four different fires, (three of them stated to be the works of incendiaries) broke out in the city of New York. The first was at the exten tensive stables of Messrs. Murphy, corner of Fourth-avenue and Twenty-seventh-street, and it extended to several houses in the rear, destroying also Saint Barnabas's Protestant Episcopal Church. The second began at the shoe store of Mr. Fust, corner of Bowery and Brome streets, and extended along the line of street, doing considerable injury to the Bap tist Chapel. The third originated at the corner of Twenty-fifth-street and Eighth avenue. And the fourth was at the stable in the rear of West-seventeenth-street. In the whole twenty-two hours, 154 horses and 22 omnibusses have been destroyed, the total loss being about 200,000 dollars The New York Herald says--" From a little after the hour of midnight, the bells rang incessantly until the dawn of morning; a...

European Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

European Extracts. A correspondent of the Morning Herald in describing the gold country in California, says " gold to the value of £9 has been given for two bottles of brandy," and "five loads of earth which had been dug out and sold for £160 yielded after washing £4,000." It appears by a. parliamentary return that during the last three years, 1500 new places have been created, the salaries of which ex ceed a quarter of a million. Thirteen hundred horses ran at public races in England during the last season. The search for the weapons with which the late murders were perpetrated in Nor folk is still prosecuted with the utmost vi gilance, but hitherto without success. Rush was conveyed to Stanfield Hall, under a writ of habeas corpus, graaited by Mr. Jus tice Wightman,pin order to be present at the reception of the depositions of Eliza Chest ncy, the servant who was so severely wound ed. The witness declared her belief that the prisoner was the man who shot her, ac knowledging that s...

To the Editor of the " Goulturn Herald." Snm,-Permit me, through the medium of your use. ful paper, to draw the attention of the Government and the public to a system now rife in this district -a system which, if persisted in, must ultimately lend to feelings of the most bitter rancour, and to a spirit of dark revenge, nay, to the loss of life itself. I allude to the prosecution or persecution of those persons who are said to be trespassers on Crown Lands. I am not aware that prosecutions of this kind are being carried on at present in any other district of the colony but that of Goulburn : owing to this circumstance, and that other, of the hitherto licensed occupiers of sections being prevented by the unjust Draconian regulations from cultivating any part of the public lands of the district, our hitherto prosperous town is fast verging into premature de cay, and several industrious, well-conducted indivi. duals have already betaken themselves to other lo calities in search of that ...

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." ,.Sxn,-As there is every appearance of one of those iunfortunate visitations called " a hardwinter" pro dnied by a scarcity of rain, high wages, and cheap miiarkets--it would be wise for those Who are em .,ployed in the breeding of sheep and cattle to devise some means of getting rid of their bullocks and weathers as well as their refuse stock in some re munerative manner. At the price wool is selling at lthe present time, wages cannot be paid; and the scarcity of grass threatens to cut off the blessings of the tallow-pot. In this darkened state of affairs, the producer should bestir himself and set his in ,entive faculties to work to seek another outlet by by which money can be turned. SThe California trade, I think, opens a fair pros* pept for sometime for the exportation of salted meats. A few years since when " curing" for the Eu ropean Mairket was " all the go," it was found that New SouthWales meat would not keep sweet until it .eaehed ...

Original Poetry. THE AVOWAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 12 May 1849

THE AVOWAL. [FCROM THE GEIRMAN.] HE said my cheek was passing fair, As rose that lay on spotless snow; And that my dark and silken hair, Flowed o'er abright, and lovely brow. He told me too, such winning grace As mine, in princely halls, should shine, And praised each feature of my face, Bu't said not that his love was mine. My eyes too,'twas his wont to praise, As'neath their fringe of rival jet, Shone looks, on which he loved to gaze, Such looks he said, he'd ne'er forget; And cold he vowed the heart must be, Which worshipped not at beauty's shrine; But though he oft spoke thus to me, He said not, that his love was mine. And as the time to part drew nigh, His praise the more, I wished to hear; And oft my bosom heaved a sigh, Not meant to reach his callous ear: But when he bade his last adieu, And pressed his trembling hand to mine, He whispered then, I love but you, My heart is thine, and only thine.

What prospect is there for the free laborer togain an honest living when he is called upon to edtbpete with cannibals from the Islands, heathens from India and China, and 'convicts from Great Britain?
