Monthly Meeting of the Bathurst Association for the advancement of Litererature and Science. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 7 April 1849

Monthly Meeting- of ta© Satnurat .Association for the advancement of Xiitererature and Science. A Great meeting of this association was held in the market place, on Thursday evenLug last. All the members were present, and the greatest harmony and order prevailed. After the usual preliminary business had been disposed of, the. sections proceeded to their respective, stalls, for the purpose of examining the papers which had been forwarded to the secretary. SECTION A— PHYSICS. Professor M'Grogerty presented a paper on the properties of a vacuum. In his opinion a vacuum could not be formed by art, but was often formed by nature. A neutral newspaper made up by the grace of paste and scissors, and that strove to please all parties, was an apt illustration of a vacuum ; forasmuch as there was nothing in it, and they all knew that a vacuum was nothing. He thought that the skulls of many of the Sydney legislators were capital vacuums, because it was demonstrable that there was nothing in the...

DISHONOURED CHEQUES, Not unfrequently set afloat by some who assume the appearance of Gen- tlemen, forsooth ! and who apparently would, rather live by such ungentle- manly shifts upon the public, than labour, like honest men, for an ho- nourable and independent mainte- nance! as they ought.   Molong and Mudgee, give no cheques, Unless ye've funds to meet them, Else we may treat such knavish tricks, As few will dare repeat them.

Scientific Memoranda. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 7 April 1849

Scientiiic Memoranda. KlJSri RATION OF PLANTS BENEFICIAL TO ANIMATES. — The arrangement, whereby plants exhale oxygen under solar influence, is especially beneficial to quad rupeds, as well as to other orders of animated beings. The atmosphere is of limited extent, and surrounds the globe like an ocean, less dense than the fluid which fills the basin of the Atlantic, but not less necessary to animal life. It consists of azote and oxygen, united, in certain proportions, and mingled mechanically with carbonic acid, the vapour of water, and a few other matters. The presence of the latter is accidental ; — pure air containing nothing more than oxygen or nitrogen gasses. It is state 1, by medical men, that when the proportion of carbonic acid in the atmosphere averages one-tenth, the a;r thus contami nated becomes unlit to support life. Now, the value of the arrangement which has just been described and by means of Avhicli vegetables decompo: c carbonic acid and exhale oxygen, 'will he b...

Foreign Intelligence. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 April 1849

Foreign Intelligence. FRANCE. As the government had received information that it. was the intention of certain evil-disposed persons to take advantage of the ceremony of the inauguration of the President of the Republic for the purpose of . endeavouring to raise an emetite in the streets of Paris,, it was judiciously arranged between the government of General Cavignac and that of the President Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, that the ceremouy of the official proclamation of the President should take place' on Wednesday instead of Thursday, so that the dissatisfied, being taken by surprise, might thus be prevented from, disturbing the public tranquillity. Accordingly, at four o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, the President elect proceeded to the National Assembly, when the report of the Committee of Scrutiny was read, which gave the following as the number of suffrages recorded : — Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, 5,434,226 ?. General Cavaignac, 1,448,107 ; M. Ledru Rollin, 370,119; M. Raspail, 36,...

Awful Sacrifice of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 April 1849

iS.wfnil Sacrifice of &£fe. fAhridcjed from the Times, December 8, 1848.) There is a fatality this 37ear about emigrants and emigrant ships. We had scarcely re covered the shock of the Ocean Monarch's loss, and now there has come upon us another calamity more appalling, more heart-rending, more sickening that even that. The burning of the Ocean Monarch is outdone now. In the cabin of the Londonderry steamer on the night of Friday last, there happened a scene so fearful that the mind instinctively recoils from dwelling, even for a moment, upon human suffering in so intense and agonizing a form. The Londonderry, it seems, left Sligo about 4 o'clock on Friday afternoon. There were on board her three cabin passengers, a number of sheep and oxen, and about 150 emigrants who were to be conveyed to Liverpool on their way to America. As the night wore on the wind and the sea rose. Most people who have crossed the Irish Channel have seen at one time or another the strange gaunt figur...

^JATIUJRST ABTOOATK. SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 18-19. Tiiv: Kingdoms of Europe are apparently involved in inextricable confusion. The policy of those, who have liecn accustomed to govern, seems wholly unable to arrest the progress of revolutionary anil reactionary change. In all parts of the European continent finan cial, and other political disorders prevail. Britain, France, Austria, Prussia, and the Italian States, arc beset with difficulties of no ordinary magnitude. The Emperor of Austria hns abdicated his crown ; tho King of Prussia is endeavouring to become the head of a modern Germanic Confederation ; tlio Pope has been compelled to retire from his dominions, and a rela tive of Napoleon has been elected President of the French Republic. All these events arc pregnant with important consequences to the inhabitants of Europe, and indirectly to colonial interests. Of all other Kingdoms, .Briiain is the most free from sudden and violent political changes. Her free insti tutions act as ...

How a Tailor Collected a Debt. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 April 1849

How a Tailor Collected a SSebt. Near the close of the last century, a Quaker knight of the shears and thimble, who exercised his avoca tion in Philadelphia, was imposed upon by an adroit scoundrel, who contrived to get a suit of clothes on credit, and afterwards eloped without paying for them. The Quaker was too poor to lose the d'ebt, but' like too many others of his cloth, he had apparently no other alternative. The account was placed on his booksand soon forgotten. Some years afterwards he was ex amining his old records of debt and , credit, profit and loss, when his attention was attracted to this account and all the circumstances attending it came fresh to mind. Suddenly an odd thought suggested itself. ' I'll try an experiment,' said he to himself; 'per* haps I may succeed in catching the rogue and getting my pay.' He immediately prepared an advertisement, in .sub stance as follows, which he inserted in the Philadel- . phia Gazetta : — ' If J ? C ? , who was in Phila delphia a...

IRELAND. '. Attempted Rescue of Smith O'Brien. — Late Accounts from Clonmel state that, the police had received information that a movement was in contem plation to rescue Smith O'Brien. The authorities took immediate steps to disconcert the designs of the insurgents. We learn from the correspondent of the Times that at midnight the entire constabulary force turned out from the town of Clonmel, together with the 64th Regiment, and the dragoons stationed in that town, and marched off' under the direction of Mr. W. Ryan, R. M.f and colonel Slretton, of the 64th ; the constabulary under the command of Colclouth, county inspector, and Sub-Inspectors Fosberry and Gernon.
