INFLUENCE OF THE PRESS AND AGITATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

INFLUENCE .OF THE PRESS AND AGITATION. (From Lord Brougham's letter to Lord Lanedowne.) THE inexorable necessities of printing at a given time a discussion of every question that arises, must have one inevitable conse quence:-opinions on most things must be very hastily, very lightly formed. I am assuming perfect honesty and fairness, as well as undeniable abilities; I am supposing that nothing is printed which is not believed; an.ample concession, you will admit, though possibly a just one. An event happens, a sudden change, for example, in the policy of some public department, or something is unexpectedly done by a Minister or a party chief. There is no delay, no time for reflec tion, none for enquiry as to the facts, on which all may depend. The next morning the opinion, formed in a few minutes over night,is printed and dealt out among 400,000 readers, the number who are supposed to read the. Conatitutionnel, that paper having sixty thousand subscribers. Or it may be that the int...

SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY. [From the S. M. Herald.] A MEETING Of the Provisional Committee of the Sydney Railway Company, was held on the 11th inst at the Company's office, Mr. C. Cowper in the chair, for the purpose of re ceiving a report of the proceedings of the working board. The leading features of the report, such as the correspondence with the Government respecting the guarantee, the appointment of Shields as engineer and Mr. Shane hav ing been sent by the Surveyor General's department to survey the country beyond Campbelltown, with the view of ascertaining the best mode of ascending the table land of Argyle, have at different times been made public. A report from the engineer, containing a number of estimates and detail ed surveys of the proposed line from the Cattle Market to Haslem's Creek on the Parramatta-road, were laid upon the table for the inspection of the Conmmittee, who were much pleased at the progress that had been made. The Chairman reported that the number of sha...

ILLUSTRATIONS OF CONVICTISM IN VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. AN ORIGINAL SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

ILLUSTRATIONS OF CONVICTISM IN VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. AN ORIGINAL SKETCH. FRoSa a residence of several years in Van :Diemen's Land, both in an official and non official capacity, and in an occupation which brought me into pretty close contact with most of the classes of which that singularly constituted community, free and bond, is composed-I ought to know something about it. But will any one care to read the re cords of convictism ? The records of "hutted crime," as it has been aptly termed-or, in other words-whlte slave-labour? The pe nal system in V. D. Land, and especially the former, and by settlers much-beloved assignment system was white slave labour, however speciously it may be disguised; and here I may introduce my subject, jumping in medics res. I beg then to state at once that my object is not to give a systematic history, but a review, entertaining or in structive, or both it may be, of my expe rience for the period referred to in Van Die men's land; not wishing by any mean...

SYDNEY MARKETS.—TUESDAY, MAY 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

j SYDNEY ,MARKETS.-TuESDAY, MAY 15. THE last goods imported appear to be nearly all consumed, so reduced were the stocks. Quotations are again resuming retail prices, and will certainly be higher if the English vessels are much longer detained. The cargo of the Augustus from Laun. ceston, has met a very good market, and was soon sold at high prices. Our exports have been consi derable, which has been the means of employing our wharfingers, who would otherwise be at a stand still, for our harbour is remarkably free from large vessels, very few having arrived for a length of time; Speculation is going on in mining shares, and we have heard of one house having already several thousands Bilabula shares. The scarcity of tonnage now in harbour has in duced the shipmasters to ask 5s. more per ton freight for England; the tallow coming down, the wool still remaining, besides metallic ores,justifies the demand. ALE AND PonTExn.-The sales have been prin cipally for exportation, prices varying...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Srs,--In your paper and other Journals of the Co lony, there have been a number of letters and com. ments on the Government Regulations, relative to the right of pre-emption, and the hardship and injus tice such regulations have upon small agricultural squatters on Crown Lands in the settled districts. No doubt to many, it does appear a hard case that persons wholhave built a hut,in some instances cleared and fenced a piece;of land that they have cul tivated, should by these Regulations be ejected. Now, I ask, by what right do such persons take pos session and occupy Crown Lands, without a license or paying rent, to the injury of those who have pur chased land that they hold and occupy, and which in many instances has become useless, except to graze stock on. The legitimate landholder cannot compete with these unauthorised squatters, who cultivate land, grow their wheat, maize, and potato es, with crops of oaten hay; having no rent to pay, th...

Original Poetry. TO AN ANONYMOUS POETESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

TO AN ANONYMOUS POETESS. IN ancient days there lived a wight, A master in Cellini's art; Who form'd a statue, beauteous, bright, It wanted but a human heart. And strange to say, tho' knowing this Most lamentable state of things, He woo'd the cold stone with a kiss, Thinking the little god with wings Could fan it into life and light; But failing in such vain essay, He pined to death, for all his might Of genius, lent no vital ray. Will - deign her name to own And make her wished-for presence real ? Or has she too a heart of stone To stay me with the Beau ideal ? Let her not heed my ligher mood, It ne'er would grief to her impart; The inward mind is true and good, Nor would she find I want a heart. I~' We do not hold ourselves responsible for the sentiments or opinions of Correspondents.

To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Sn,--Amongst your Notices to Corespondent's last week there is a reply to a question by a correspondeht who signs himself " Ralph Markall." I can assure you, that although you dismiss the question in a very brief and dogmatical manner, it has given rise to many arguments on the subject. I, amongst a great number, hold the opinion that no magistrate who is a squatter has a right,according to the acknowledged usages of Police Courts, to siton cases brought under the Crown Land's Act, especially when the object is to oust a neighbour whose stock is biting down the adjacent grass, over which otherwise, the magistrate's sheep or cattle would be running. Plunkett says-(page 255) "In a recent case (4 D. and R.M.C. 35.) Lord Tenter den said, ' We think it the safer course to hold, that magistrates should not interfere in any cases where they are interested."' Every one knows that the Squatters in a district have a direct interest to get rid of a pers...

TUESDAY, MAY 15, 1849. Before J. F. M'AnRTiUn, Esq., J. P., and W. H. HOVELL, Esq., J. P. HIRED SERVANT'S ACT.-A man named WHITE HrAD, was brought up under the following circum stances: Mr. M'Alisler stated, that he had received a war. rant from Gundagni, for the apprehension of the prisoner, who had absconded from the hired service of an inhabitant of that town. Prisoner had been seen on the Ynss road at about one o'clock on the previous night, and was apprehended at 8 o'clock on that morning. He (Mr. M'Alister) had been in formed that the prisoner in company with another man had passed several orders on the road down, but had not received distinct information on the subject. The Bench ordered Whitehead to be forwarded to Guodagai. The prisoner was then removed. STEPHEN WILSON, who was lately committed to take his trial on a charge of robbing his master, Mr. A. Long, the Inn-keeper, appeared to prefer a charge against that person of non-payment of wages. It appeared from the statem...

Legislative Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 19 May 1849

Legislative Council. The Council met for the first time this Session on Tuesday last: the following is the substance of the debate on THE SPEAKERSHTP. Ma. SUTTOR had the honor to rise to propose to the House the name of a fit and proper gentleman to take the chair of the House. It was hardly ne cessary for him to name Dr. Nicholson as the can didate he intended to propose; and he was sure it would not require any oratorical abilities on his part to recommend him to their favourable notice. They had. already tested Dr. Nicholson's abilities. He had already filled the chair for several Sessions and lie believed that lie had acted in such a manner as t, gain him the entire confidence of the House. He was totally ignorant of any ol.jections that could be urged against Dr.Nicholson, if he were acquaint. ed with them it might probably be in his power to enlarge considerably on the merits of that gentle. man. As it was, lie should simply cenclude his ob servations by moving that Dr. Nichol...

CALIFoRNIA.-Several residents of this town, al. lured by the golden accounts of California, are about to take their departure for that country.

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. SINCE the Intelligence from Home which appears in our first page, was given into the hands of the printer, we have received later news by the way of Launceston. The in telligence is to the 1st of February, and reached V. D. Land via the Mauritius. PARLIAMENT met on the 1st of February. THE Queen and Royal Family were in good health. Her Majesty was staying at Windsor. Ru~sovns of ministerial purposes and political projects were rife, but nothing more remarkable than Mr. Cobden's union with the Finance Reformers, and the resus citation of the giant league, in all its mem bers, to war upon their side. The minister, we are assured, is as much in earnest as Mur. Cobden on the subject of reduction, and the Tines premises something like four millions of retrenchment as the act of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. A dead set was made at the Woods and Forests-a. cry is up against the Ordnance administration-and the waste in ship building is denounced. TRADE was improving...

Select Poetry. SONG OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849

SONG OF TIHE SOIL. I start the bulb of the beautiful flower, Anti feed the bloom of the wild wood bower; I rear the blade of the tender behb, And the trunk of the stalwart oak I curb; I force the sap of the mountain pine, And curb the tendrils of the vine.; I robe the forest, and clothe the plain, With the ripest of fruits and the richest of grain. The cheek of the peasant I clothe with health, And yield the sturdy yeoman wealth; I give spirit of commerce wings, And prop the tottering throne of kings. The gorgeous palace and Ithe hnuible cot, Owe every atom to me they've got; [board, And the prince at his banquet, and the hind at his Alike must depend on the fare I afford. Man may boast of his creaturely might His talents in peace, and prowess in fight; And lord it o'er tile beast and bird, By the charm of his touch, and the spell of his word; But I am the sole and mighty soturce, Whence flows the title of his boasted force; Whatever his right and whoever he be, His pomp and domitni...

TANNING : INTERESTING TO AUSTRALIANS. ACADAMY OF SCIENCE, PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849

TANNING : INTERESTING TO AUSTRALIANS. ACADEMY QP SCIENCE, PARIS. A very important communication wasv made. by M. Payen, in the name of Dr. Turnbull, of London, relative, to his practical applica tion of the theory of endosmosis and ex tosmosis, discovered by M. Dutrochet to the process of tanning, and also the application of the soluble principle of sugar to the same purpose. We give here a short explanation of what is meant by endosmosis and extosmo sis. By this new physical law the currents interchange until they become of the same specific gravity : thus Dr. Turnbull, by sew ing up a hide filled with one liquid of a cer tain specific gravity, and then immersing the hide in another liquid of greater or lesser density, keeps up this reciprocal action until such time as the hide is tho roughly tanned. The statement made by Dr. Turnbull is so extraordinary, that it astonished the Accademy, and has equally astonished some of our Paris contemporaries, who observe that his process, if r...

GUNDAGAI. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849

GUNDAGAZ. (FI'ROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [ should have written you before but a sport iung friend promised to give me the particulars of the races with his remarks, but as yet he has not done so.. The impression of all present was, that we never had better racing, each prize having been well contested for. The day was fine and all pre sent appeared to enjoy the sport: a drunken man was scarce to be seen anywhere about, this I fear, is to be attributed more to a want of cash than to an improvement in morality. The Stewards, we take it, were much to blame in allowing the " thim ble-rig" gentry to drive their trade as they did, although it is strange there are men to be found, who are so foolish as to be the dupes of such a notorious deception. Mr. Surveyor Mann has been here during three weeks and laid out a number of allotments and small farms of fifty acres each around the town, the Government having reserved some thirty thousand acres for this purpose around this township.
