Original Correspondent. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Bathurst. March 23, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 March 1849
©ristmtl CdTtrejjpmtttcitcc, To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst. March 23. 1849. Sir, — Except from the circumstance of your having taken the trouble of copying from the Sydney Mor ning Herald, (without comment) a report of an inquest held at Parramatta, in which the jurors are said to have msiAo. ' strinjrent remarks' on the ' unehristian like conduct' of the Managers of the Bathurst Hospital, in the case of a man called Vaughan. I should not have considered it worth while to have taken any notice of that report, as of course, a Par ramatta jury could not be supposed to have had any other than exparte statements, — and must be quite ignorant of the real facts of the case. — I cannot refrain from remarking, that, as a resident of the Town of Bathurst, you had it in your power to have satisfied yourself as to the truth or falsehood of that statement, before you published it, — not having done so, I con clude you will now have no objections to give this positive denial o...
Scientific Memoranda. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 March 1849
Scientific XWiemoranda. Exosmose and Endosmose. — It was found by Dutrochet, (a French experimentalist) that when membranous bags, formed of the casca of fowls, were filled with a quantity of mucila ginous fluid, and then plunged into water, two onoosite currents were established through the walls of the ciecal bag ; the first being formed by the flow of the water from the outside to the inside of the bag, and the second by the flow of the mucilaginous liquid outwards. The latter is termed exosmose, and the former endosmose ; or, in other words exosmose signifies a current impelled outwards, and endosmose denotes a current impelled inwards. Dutrochet ascertained that, when a membrane containing a fluid is plunged into another fluid of a different density, these opposite currents are established through the walls of the membranous vessel. If a bladder filled with azote, carbonic acid, and oxygen, be plunged into water containing air, the endosmic and exosmic currents will, in a short...
SWEET THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 March 1849
; SWEET THINGS: -«J' '.Tis sweet to see the bailiff march away ? When he has been your guardian for a week ; 'Tis sweet to know you've got the cash to pay Your creditor, who duns with brassy cheek; - 'Tis sweet to see the moon's soft, silvery ray Flash on the waters of some quiet creek ; 'Tis sweet to dwell in magisterial halls, , And pocket guineas by the sinner's falls. 'Tis sweet to listen to the bellman's voice Proclaiming that your missing child is found ; 'Tis sweetto'wed the girl of your choice, And sweeter far to lay her under ground ; — 'Tis sweetat public dinners to rejoice And quad'ehampagne with sparkling bubbles crown'd And find yourself soon after on your beam ends Shiv'ring and quaking with delirium tremens. 'Tis sweet to listen to your baby's squalls Whene'er they drown the scolding of your wife ; 'Tis sweet to keep aloof from drunken brawls, And sweet to know your pension is for life. 'Tis sweet to free yourself from Cupid's thralls, 'Tis sweet to shun the felon's u...
THE CHURCH SERVICE. IN THE ANCIENT RUINED ABBEY IN "IONA." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 March 1849
THE CHURCH SERVICE. In the Ancient Ruined Absey in ' Iona.' The Choral Hymn is raised, In old Iona's aisle, Once more tho Lord is praised, With deep-toned joy tho while. The white robed Priest appears, Where erst St. Golumb stood, — And many hearts i; cheers, The faithful and tho good ! The Gospel sound is heard — ' Behold the Lamb' proclaimed, While spirits deep are stirr'd, 'Mid ruins once so famed, For learning and for worth, For truth and holy zeal, To many lands sent forth, Where darkness set her seal, And errors power had sway, Upon the hearts of men, Till light of Wisdom's ray Beamed brightly on them then. — Religion there was nurs'd, In that far western Isle, Till through the world it burst, With Missionary smile. A. F.

EATHUEST HilCES. If the Bathurst Races have not been distinguished this year by what is' termed par excellence the dust, they have at least been distinguished by dust. On the first day the wind blew strongly and the dust-clouds ran races all over the field ; as if there had been a struggle between them as to which should get first into the eyes of the bystanders. '\Ye stretched our editorial conscience so far as to bet that no man on the Course would keep his eyes clear the whole day; but, we are sorry to say, the sporting gentry were too clear headed to take the bait. These dust-clouds were a source of great annoyance, and marred the pleasure which some would have otherwise derived from the sports of the occasion. There Avere not so many people on the Race Course this year as there were at last year's races. There was, however, a goodly number, averaging, perhaps, from 700 to 1000 people. A large portion of these were mounted cavaliers astride on all sorts of animals belonging to t...

SS?.EE.A»51aS. LATEST FROM THE SOUTH. Dubmn, Monday Mokning. — The subjoined com munication was received by this morning's southern mail :— '/ 'Cloxjiel, Nov. 12. — Nothing of importance has transpired with respect to the insurrectionary move ment in this neighbourhood since rav letter of vesterdav. ' The greatest, vigilance is still kept up by the military and police ; the former attended divine ser vice to-day with their arms and accoutrements. The troops have been reinforced by arrival last night of two companies of the 83d Regiment from Carrick-on-Suir, where, however, there is some insurrectionary move ment on foot. I saw a letter to a gentleman in this town from a shopkeeper at Carrick, in which it is stated that on Thursday night, or early on Friday morning, a party of the constabulary came in sight of some people on the hills, who fled on their approach. They are estimated to have numbered 300 to 400 men, and 'ho states that the greatest excitement prevails in Carrick, as an...
THE SCOTCH MARRIAGE BILL. Libel by Lord Campbell. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 March 1849
SEEK SCOTCH SEA£fcRZ.A.@:S &Z&&. Eiibel by Lord Campbell. In the House of Lords, during the discussion on the Scotch Marriage Bill, Lord Campbell said — ' In Scotland, at present a man could scarcely tell 'whether, he was married or NOT,' This extraordinary statement, facetiously observes the Glasyoiu Examiner of Saturday, 17th inst., has taken one-half of the married men by surprise, and raised the indignation of the other. That the statement is false and heartless, may be known from the fact that the women of Scotland are taking it quite easy, and not a voice has been raised on the subject. But as for the men, what feelings of insulted misfortune and revenge arise Jm their leasts. It would surprise nobody should ;hey demand the head of Lord Campbell, at ihe hands of Her Majesty, as an atonement [or his bitter irony. Every post places a load af letters from indignant husbands on the floor of our sanctum. The following extracts from a few of these communicati...
Scientific Memoranda. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 31 March 1849
Scientific memoranda. Organic Chemistry. — It has been known fronv time immemorial, that the nourishment of animals depends on the reception of certain substances into the animal economy ; and latterly, it has been proved by Baron Liebig and other distinguished men, that the amount of nutriment derivable from any kind of food, is pro portionate to the chemical composition of that food, and the facility with which it can be assimilated in the animal system. Regarding these as established facts, we shall endeavour to point out the various sub stances which enter into the composition of vegetable and animal bodies, and afterwards particularize the various kinds of food which are best adapted to sup port the human frame in health and vigour. It has been shown by Liebicr, that one class of bodies found in plants consist of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen ; the two latter elements being in the pro portions necessary to form water. Starch (Chem. Com., C. 12, O. 10. H. 10. ) is an example of t...
THE ORPHAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 31 March 1849
THE ORPHAN. Beside a calm stream a young girl was reclining, Adown her fair cheeks fell the tear drops of woe ; O'er her high snowy brow the rich ringlets were twining, And her dark eye was fixed on the streamlet below . Alas ! she exclaimed, in this land I'm a stranger, No parent to love me, to watch or defend, To guide my young footsteps through trouble and danger. Oh, who will an orphan protect'and befriend. In the cold grave are sleeping my father and mother, Oh ! would that their daughter was laid by their side ; And once I was blest with a fond loving brother, But long years are past since that dear brother died. They left me an orphan almost broken-hearted, To struggle with misery, friendless alone ; Oh, then from my country in sorrow I parted, And here on the world's cold support I am thrown. But wherefore, oh, wherefore, in grief am I weeping, I still have a Father who rule th on high : And'tho' in the tomb my lov'd parents are sleeping, Secure of his pity to Him I may fly....

LINES SUGGESTED BT THE MELANCHOLY FATE OF E. B. Kennedy, Esq. She hath press'd him to her widow'd lieart, Her brave — her noble boy j ILre for a far off eastern land lie sails with hope and joy. He deems when summers have pass'd by, And many scenes are traced ; That once again in that loved home Beside her he'll be placed. He was endow' d with talents rare For enterprise — and fame Went with him wheresoe'er he went, And rais'd his honor'd name. Till, forth upon a high emprise, He with a chosen band, ' Dared penetrate the wilderness, To search the unknown, land. And gallantly he led them on Through peril, and through toil j , For hostile natives watched their stops, To murder and to spoil. And famine grim beset them, In an evil des'late hour — It Ihinn'd their ranks, — exhausting them To Death's destructive power. Then nobly did their leader brave, Start forward in belief — That could he reach the distant shore He soon would bring relief. Companioned by a faithful one, Dark native of...
