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

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The mystery which has hitherto enveloped the fate of the maniac Fry has been at length cleared up by the discovery of hi3 bones, by Mr. Alexander McCulloch, within half-a-mile of the spot where he murdered his wife, and not more than four miles from his station. Although the clothes have been, torn, and the bones scattered by the wild dogs, there appears no doubt of their iden tity ; the rifle, cutting-knife, pistol, and pocket-book of Fry, as also the bonnet of his wife, being in their immediate neigh bourhood. Information was sent to the police at Gawler Town, and a constable was sent to Wakefield to take charge of the remains, and summon the nearest Justice of the Peace, who is William Salter, Esq., to hold the 'Inquest, which it is believed, will take place onThursday. This termination to their suspense will be highly advantage ous, in a pecuniary sense, to the children of Fry, as. the obstacle to letters of administra tion being granted is now removed, by the c...

CHIT-CHAT BY TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

CHIT-CHAT BY TELEGRAPH. Let us express the great delight with which we learn that ' the right to establish an electric telegraph, line between Franco and England, by a sub-marine communication across the Channel,' hw been officially conceded. By the aid of a sin gle wire, rttid of two persons only — one in France and one in England— a message of fifteen words, including address and signature, may be delivered in one minute ! These wires;will, of course, com municate, via South Eastern and Boulogne rail ways, with either capital : thus London and Paris may, when they .will, gossip with one another. The amenities produced between the two countries, by this practice, must bo of the most rapid growth and of the widest influence.

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

EaXtracta. The Rob Ror of the Russian Fron tier. — The fruitless attempts to arrest Krotinus, the smuggler chief, who, with his band, infests the Prussian frontier in the neighbourhood of Tilsit, continue to excite interest. A recent letter from Augsgirrin desciibes Krotinus as a rude, ignorant, but cunning Lithuanian who was a few years ago a domestic servant, but took to the contraband trade on the frontier as more profitable. He has now obtained a kind of Rob Roy influence. He plunders only on the Russian territory, on the Prussiin side of the frontier be strictly forbids all ex cesses of the kind. The peasants and vil lagers are all his friends, and he bribes the Russian cordon, so that all attempts to take him have failed. A whole company of infantry and two detachments of dragoons and chasseurs have been sent against him ; but hitherto he has escaped them by his in timate knowledge of all the roads and passes of the forest country. His band is des ciibed as amounting to 600 me...

THE JOLLY TARS OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

THE JOLLY TARS OF ENGLAND. Amid much that is to be envied and ad mired, there is still not a little to be de plored in the life and adventures of a sailor. How happy is Jack, while his vessel is afloat, and the waves are bounding heneath him— ' Liko a stood that knows bis rider.' ... Wild and free as the wind that whistles through the shrouds, his heart is throbbing with delight at the novel scenes to which he i9 hastening, and glowing with a kind of rapturous excitement even at the very perils which he braves. Of the ordinary cares to which vulgar mortals are a prey he knows nothing. He is happy and .careless, al though, perhaps, when a gale is blowing now and then, a little over-worked, through out the longest voyages, and amidst the fiercest commotions of the elements around him. And when he does get on shore, with what a reckless jollity does 'he fling himself into the midst of all those indulgences to which he has long been a stranger. With what unreflective and undiscerning ge...

Kate English Mows. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) English news to the 1 8th April had been received in Van Diemen's Land, boat the Launceston Examiner of the 27th ultimo, which is the only paper we have received, contains very little that has not been copied by us from English papers prior to the 6th of April.

The imports of wool into London have been 304 bales, 107 being from the Cape of Good Hope, ond 167 from Germany. Lebds, March' 28. — We have no change to report this week, either in demand or prices. Liverpool, Thursday. — The imports for the week are frem Peru 2,212, Buceo 137, Trieste 107, Smyrna 111, Ireland 66 bales. ThU market is still without anima tion ; about ^200 balea Donskay wool were offered at auction yesterday, but were with drawn for want of competition. Bradford, Thursday. — During the pre= sent week there have been more brokers in the market, but we do not hear that this has resulted in anything beyond small pur chases made with, marked caution. The present season' 'is an untoward one for the holders of wool, the ? long continuance of dry searching winds having had great effect upon all wools, but especia...

ENGLISH MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

English Markets, Manchester, 13th April, 1850. —The im proved state of our market which I had to report last week has continued during the present one. Transactions to a considerable extent have taken place, and in some instances a further small advance has been obtained.' On the whole, the business of the last two weeks has imparted a more cheerful aspect to our market, confidence is gradually gain ing ground, and there is reason to hope that we have before us a period of increasing1 prosperity to our manufactures. Bradford, llth April, 1850. The general impression is, that to-day's market showed decided symptoms of im provement. American and Italian buyers bought freely, and, the former particularly, entered into heavy contracts. The princi pal demand was for 7-4 Coburgs and 3-4 de laines for printing. The Germans are acting with great caution till they ascer tain the result of the Leipsig}Fair, but will be heavy purchasers if their anticipations are realised. The home houses are ...

HOCUSSING IN A RAILWAY CAR-. RIAGE BY LOZENGES ANOTHER ATTEMPT IN MANCHESTER. On Saturday morning, the 16th instant, a imari residing at Handsworth was travelling by railway from Edinburgh to Birmingham and when* between Carlisle arid Preston. two men in the same carriage offered him self arid a fourth passenger a lozenge each. The fourth man ate his lozenge and slept all the way to Birmingham. The Hands^ Worth man did riot eat his, nevertheless he fell asleep for si, few miles, aud on awaking found that he had been robbed of £12, He accused one of the lozenge givers of rob bing him ;? but of course the man denied all knowledge of any robbery. Strange to say, he made no, effort to have the men appre hended, and the two ' hocussers' left the train at Crewe, in order to go to Manchester. The Handsworth man describes one of these men as about twenty-five' years of age, five feet eight inches in height, pale complexion dark hait ; wearing black surtout and trou sers, and a. strong gold ...

THE COMING WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

'. THE COMING WAR. .{From the Sunday Tiniies.) ? Civilised Europe is just now exhausting aTl the arts of diplomacy to put off the coming war. Hut come it will for all that. Messrs; Cobden, Thompson, Grihbte, and Co., with their scheme of national interme diation and peace societies, and, aborigines' protection societies, and all1 'ttia't 'sort of moonshine, will hot be able to prevent the work of the sword. Not that we regard this as a triumph, but rather as a dire ne cessity. We cannot consent to live in a fool's paradise — to cry 'peace! peace!' when there is no peace— and, because we can pour forth oceans of rhodornontade among quacks and Quakers at the London Tavern or elsewhere, to' delude ourselves into the persuasion that selfish and ferocious despots will consent to layby their only safeguard— the sword.

Foreign Intelligence. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

Foreign Intelligence. \ FRANCE. M. de Larochejacquelin startled the French Assembly on Wednesday, by reading a proposition which he did not care to enforce personally . It was nothing less than a proposal to poll. France on the question of monarchy or republicanism. Each indivi dual is to inscribe one of these two words on a card, and send it in on the first Sunday in June. If, as the legitimist deputy be lieves, the result is in favour of monarchy, a new Assembly is to be forthwith elected to carry out the vote. Volney once told Bonaparte when First Consul, that, if France were polled, the majority would be in fa vour of a Bourbon restoration. M. de La rochejacquelin tells the President the same thing. After the proposition had been read the assembly voted it down by acclamation and broke up, crying. 'Vive la Repub lique.' They received it, in true French fashion, as a serious jest. The whole affair is a very correct sample of the temper and proceedings of French politicians and of...

FRANCE AND HER PROVINCES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 August 1850

PRANCE AND HER PROVINCES. While Paris puts down its emeutes with a facility almost ludicrous, the spread, of dan gerous opinions and feelings throughout the provinces advances day by -day .;:. For a; long period Paris has been France —it now, seems. that France is resolved to have its own turn. It will be strange indeed if; Paris should send out her citizens for the purpose of quietit.g the turbulence and dis affection of France. - - For some time past Socialism has been a. favorite notion with the peasants of the. south. Iu the neighbourhood of Lyons;; more especially, secret societies have been formed in almost countless numbers for Socialist propagandism. The steps taken by the police betray their alarm. Measures, at which Louis XLV. would have hesitated are adopted without scruple by the Repub lican Government. In one street at Lyons, seven libraries were shut up in a single day.^ After this two or three more of the princi pal reading rooms were closed and sealed. All vagabonds ...

Sydney and Country News. Dr. Lang. — Placards ivere posted about the town on Tuesday morning inviting 'the people' to accompany Dr. Lang on his first taking his seat in the Council.

Dr. Lang had the exceeding bad I taste to make a speech from the steps of the Council Chamber, a course for which we believe there is no precedent.
