To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald" [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald " Sia,-A great fuss is being made about the small settlers the hardships they endure from what a " ilater of Venality " terms " persecu tion." I don't see that they are suffering any hardship at all, for there are many amongst them who are disa reputable characters, and do not deserve any en couragement from the Crown. I have purchased land at high prices, and employ a great number of men to cultivate it ; how can I compete with a man who has a small holding, works the ground himself, and who lives upon next to nothing. If I have em barked Ten Thousand Pounds in Land and improv ed it to an amount equal to that, why am I to be beggared by a man -sitting down close bye, who grows grain at half what I can afford to sell it at? Such persons should be labourers; we paid to bring them out, and they should labour for us : a man has no right to labour for himself when labour has been created for him, at great expense by allother. I am no newspaper writ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
hFoR the animation displayed since the commencement of the present Session of the Legislative Council, something lively may be expected of it-if its proceedings will not bring prosperity, they may afford excitement. The Member for this County has been re-elected to the Speakership of the House, notwithstanding the faint praise of his supporters, and the powerful denunci ations of his opposers, making it very evident the triumphant majority which raised him to the honor of the Speaker's chair, did not arise, either from the dignity of deportment, or ability, or consistency of conduct with which he formerly filled it. If the Speak er's deservings pleaded for him, why were they left to be set forth by such auctioneer orators at Messrs. Bowman and Suttor ? How is it that Mr. Cowper was silent on the occasion of the debate ? None knew better than he the merits of Dr. Nicholson as Speaker, and no member of the I-louse could have stated them with greater perspicuity, or would have been mor...
EFFECTS OF RAILWAYS ON AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
EFFECTS OF lAILOWAYS ON AGRICULTURE. TuE advantages which have accrued to agri cultural producers from the facilities afforded by railway communication of conveying their produce to market, as well as the reciprocal advantages derived by the consumers, have been rendered apparent wherever the railway system has been adopted. In the neighbour hood of large cities, such as London, Paris, or New York, the fact is particularly remark able. It has been proved that since the opening of the London and Birmingham, the Great WPestern, the South Westcrn, and the Eastern Counties lines, the metropolis has been better supplied with milk, butter, cheese, poultry, and the general articles of farm produce, than at any former period. Nor has it been only with respect to the quantity supplied that the advantages of rapid communication have been demonstrated. The quality, too, of the articles referred to has undergone proportionate improvement, and it is well-known with respect to milk, that that art...
LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
LATE ENGLISH NEWS. BY the arrival of the Pemberton Emigrant ship at Port Phillip, we have European News to the 29th January. The Melbourne jour nals that have come to hand contain very few extracts from the English papers. The following j.ricis is taken from the Arazs: It was confidently stated that Ministers intended to make a considerable reduction in the navy. Parliament was to meet for the despatch of business on the 1st February, when also a repeal of the Corn Laws Act was to come into full operation. The manufacturing districts have assumed a new appearance; men are again busy; mills which have been shut up are now open, and every thing appears to prognosticate that 1849 will be a brisk year of commerce. Cotton fabrics have advanced 7. per cent., the linens about 5 per cent., and those expe rienced in the wool-trade appeared to think that the sales would open at an advance and go off briskly. Many houses that had failed in the crash had recommenced, paying off their liab'ies i...
ACTUAL STATE OF CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
ACTUAL STATE OF CALIFORNIA. [From a London Paper January 3; 1849.] BY the Royal Mail Steame~r !Brilaiiia which arrived at Liverpool on Thursday, we received letters and papers from America. There is no end to the published accounts of California gold mines, and the papers devote columns of every publication to glory in the accounts continually received. The reports have actually produced. a strong desire among many persons from all the States to proceed to that newly-acquired cointiy.- Aft New Orleans a " Californiai Emigration Company" had been formed for tlhe purpose of aiding the enterprising spirit of the resi dents. A vessel was to be purehased at a cost of 6,000 dollars each. The eagerness of the people to join the undertaking may be gathered from the circumstance that the applications for shares amounted to 22,000 dolli'si' -The most interesting and authen tie description of these mines, however, is detailed in a despatch from Colonel Mason, the' officer in command at Moftere...
A COUNTRY WITHOUT A HISTORY. A SPECULATION ON THE IRISH, FROM A "SAXON" POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
A COUNTRY WITHIOUT A HISTORY. A SPEOULATIOR ON THE IRISH, PFIROi A "SAXON" POINT OF VIEW. THE regeneration of Ireland demands a wise man and a brave. If less wise than brave, he will deal with effects to the neglect of causes, and thus a portion of his energy will be uselessly or perniciously expended: if less brave than wise, he will be more inclined to analyse causes than grapple with effects, and the refined reflection on the source of the evil to be vanquished will cripple vigour, slacken promptitude, and mar completeness in the work' to be done. The great apparent woes of Ireland are physical; its real miseries are moral. How ever harsh it may sound, yet who can deny the main and monster evil of Ireland is the Irish ? As a people, the Irish possess nei ther self-respect nor a delicate sense of ho nor, that ardent desire for progress which alone can be the inspiration of mighty and glorious deeds. Their intellect however bril liant-and brilliant it unquestionably is when compare...
TO THE MAGISTRATES OF THE GOULBURN DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
TO THE MAGISTRATES OF THE GOULBURN DISTRICT. [Per favour of the ' Goulburn Herald."J. GENTLEAtEN,-I hope for your credit's sake, as men, aud fathers of families, that you will not sit toead. judicate, ou informations laid by the humane and feeling Commisioner of Crown Lauds within the Settled Districts. You must be aware, there is no other Bench in the Colony, that. has forgotteun its dignity so far as to sit in a single case: nor have there been any informations laid against the squat ters of ally other district in the Colony. This must convince you at once of the character and respect. ability of other Gentlemen 'executing the office of Commissioners under "' a most tyrannical imperial order," as compared with the innate noble spirit of one, who while tacting an Alecto and an informer, grosser in spirit, than even the totorious Byas, could demean himself to :become a " watch-pot," and commit sacrilege, by eating a Priest's pudding. Until the Executive " ask" you " to sit ," as Chi...
To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." SIR,-I am an extensive employer of labor, and have the misfortune to be often troubled with unruly servants. Mr. Murray's Act offers me a remedy, but I cannot avail myself of it without a serious loss of time, which to me is of great value. Sometime since, I made it a practice to apply to the Court in Goulburu for redress when any of my servants com mitted a flagrant offence, but having had to wait .upon the Bench for hours at a time and often com pelled to leave without obtaining a summons, I have given up all idea of being able to maintain order on my establishment by the assistance of law, and am now living at the mercy of every vagabond laborer who chooses to impose upon me. .So much for the administration of justice in Goul burn. I am, Sir, Your constant reader, A SHEEP FARMER. May 14th, 1849.
Original Correspondence. TO THE COMMISSIONER OF CROWN LANDS FOR THE GOULBURN DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
-0 TO THE COMMISSIONER OF CROWN LANDS FOR THE GOULBURN DISTRICT. [Per favour of the " Goulburn Herald."] SIn,-.T don't know whether you are aware, in the zeal you have lately displayed, in laying iuforma tions, with the view to dispossess the little squatters of land on which they are now illegally squatting, and over which you have the very " high honor" to have " the surveillance ;" that not only are the Government averse to your extra-judicial proceed ings, but have sent Mr. Armstrong, who is now at the Crookwell, as a " counter tenor" to measure out farms from 30 up to 50 acres foi purchase, with right of run to remaining portion of the section, to such as may apply to him for same, whether they have hitherto occupied Crown Land on Lease or not; and that his instructions are, to go through no less than seven conuties, for that especial pur pose, without consulting it would appear, either yourself, or those who nmay be happy in the thought, that they are to enjoy nudisturbed, the...
THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. Mr. Cowper's motion on this subject (vide the proceedings of the Legislative Council in another column) was put to the House on Tuesday. It raised an animated debate. The Attorney-General objected to go into the broad question, and to pledg ing the Government to any course previous to all the papers and despatches on the subject being laid be fore the House. The first partof the resolution re lated to the sending of convicts destined for Port Phillip to the middle district. Although theColontial Secretary had no written document to bear him out, yet it was his strong impression that no ticket-of leave holders at all were to be sent to Port Phillip ; they were all exiles that were spoken of as to be sent there; but the ticket-of leave holders were to be sent to New South Wales, and although this would cer tainly include Port Phillip, he did not believe it was the intention to send any of the latter class to the southern district; but if they did get ticke...
To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
'Toa the Editor of-the." Goulburn Herald." Sts,-If Capt. Hovell is desirous of doing what ,heo has termued " his duty," without suspicion as to his motives, why does he not proceed against the " unlawful occupiers " uuder the third section of the Lands Act ? Or, if he is determined to punish as well as dispossess, let him carry on his extermi nating warfare with clean hands: let him publicly direct that, in all convictions his moiety of the fine be paid into tile Hospital fMnd. To those who are compelled to associate with him, his present course is exceedingly obnoxious, and the sooner he gives up the trade of an informer, or the honourable place he questionably fills in the C(ommission of the Peace the better. Mr. Hovell may consider himself proof against news paper attacks, but he will find out, perhaps when it is too late, that his friends or his public associates are not quite so hog skinned as hiomself. I am, Sir,y Your obedient servant, A WORD OF ADVICE. Goulburn. Wednesday.
To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." SIn,-Observing by a late number of your very useful paper, that there is a Parochial Association in Goulburn, I am desirous of being made a ac quainted with the aim and object of the society. Perhaps you or some of the active members of its committee will inform me. If it is for the purpose of assisting in the educa tion of the poorer classes, and the distribution of Bibles and Prayer.books among the rural popula. tion, I shall feel happy in giving it support. I do not think that half the district are aware of the ex istence of such an institution, and if they are, they are not conversant with its constitution and mode of working. I remain, Your obedient servant, A SUBSCRIBER. Fish.River, May 19th, 1840.
SMALL FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
SMALL FARMS. WVE beg to direct attention to the pleasing intelligence conveyed in our Gundagai cor respondent's letter, on the subject of Mr. Mann's proceedings in laying our a number of small farms in that neighbourhood, which we have no doubt will be immediately put up to auction by Government, in order that those who are disposed to buy may enter on their land in time to plough this season. We trust that the Executive will give di rections that all such farms may be put up for sale at the Police Office of the district in which they are situated, as by such a pro ceeding greater facility for purchases will be given to the class for whose immediate be nefit they are being laid out. We forbear.this week offering any further comment on the extermination war, trusting that before our next issue Captain Hovell may have found some more honorable, and at the same time profitable, employment than that of the Governor's sole Informer for the Colony of New South Wales.
AUCKLAND AND ST. VINCENT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 26 May 1849
AUCKLAND AND ST. VINCENT ELECTION. IF a man makes a foolish step in life, he dis plays his return to wisdom by taking the earli est opportunity of retracing it. Such has been the case with Mr. George Hill, and we are not quite certain whether the ex-member is to be more congratulated upon his resigning the trust which the electors of Auckland and St.Vincent had committed to his charge than the said electors, in getting rid, with a good grace, of a man who was so unfitted for the duties of a legislator. However, the question is hardly worth enquiring into; Mr. Hill has resigned, and the electors of the united counties are again called upon to make choice of a representative. There are two candidates in the field and a third is spoken of. A Mr. Flood,-the present Mayor of Sydney, who perhaps in the fullness of his conceit has thought that his very name would bear him on to fortune, is one of them, and calculating with a logical nicety, that as the people of Auckland and St. Vincent we...
