SHOCKING TRAGEDY NEAR CLAYTONON-THE-HEIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 17 August 1850

SHOCKING TRAGEDY NEAR CLAYTON ON-THE-HEIGHTS. (From the Weekly Chronirle. The beautiful and secluded little village of Clayton was on Saturday the scene of a dreadful tragedy, in consequence of a young man recently married having shot his wife through the left breast and blown out his own brains. The village of Clayton-on -     the-Heights lies ubout five miles north of Halifax, and is situated amongst some of the most wild and romantic scenery of the   West Riding of Yorkshire. The subjects of the present most tragical occurrence are two young people named Abraham and Elizabeth Jessop, each about twenty-five years of age, and the cause of it an unhappy and ill-assorted marriage, leading to a se- paration, which the wife's friends had un wisely attempted to make permanent, in- stead of seeking a reconciliation. The main supports of the village are some extensive stone quarries in the neigh bourhood ; and Jessop, who had come to reside there fro...

THE REJECTED ESSAYS ON CATARRH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 24 August 1850

THE REJECTED ESSAYS ON CATARRH. (From Mr. B.puggan's Essay.) .Remedial Measures.— rlt is .my ..candid opinion, that when catarrh once breaks out among sheep, there is no real cure that can be relied upon at all times, and under all circumstances. The bVst renaedy is, to boil down as fast as possible all that can be found sufficiently fat for that purpose ; but, as there is always a great, number. of young and lean . sheep among, the flocks of every proprietor, which would not repay the la bour of boiling, the most approved reme dies, and such as are available with little labour and expense, might be had recourse to, with more or less advantage. ..Butthe. operation of the disease itself : is not more uncertain and whimsical than the effects of many of those remedies that have hitherto been resorted to. Bleeding, for instance, has Ueen known, in some cases, to check the progress of the disease; and, in others, to accelerate its deadly effect. The same may be said of several other reme...

MR: EMERSON ON ENGLAND. -(\^w York Literary World, Feb. 2.) On Tuesday of last week Mr. Emerson de liTeried a lecture on England at the Mercan ? tile Library, to a crowded audience. -The night was favourable, and many who came had to shift for accommodation, the lecture room being early filled. The lecturer said that a year and a half ago he returned from hie second visit to England, and the ques tion now to be answered was, 'Why Eng land waB England ??' On landing at Liver pool everything struck him as perfect and complete. The highest cultivation met his eye in everything. It seemed the kingdom and home of common sense. The fields and gardens looked so smooth and neat that they seemed to have been finished with the pencil rather than the plough. You ride at three times the speed, with three times the ease, and three times the comfort you do in this country. Over rivers and through ravines, and through tunnels three miles long, you are carried from place to place as if riding on a ...

CONFESSION OF A MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 24 August 1850

''CONFESSION OF ArMURDBR,. ; ? It has very recently been made-known that John Baguley, aged 70j who died at Chilwell, four hi il.es south of Nottingham, on the 1 6th ultimo, confessed on his death bed that, twenty-three years ago, he mur dered a hawker of shawls, blankets, &c, and dbposedbf the body This announce ment has caused the greatest possible ex citement. From a preliminary investiga tion, it seems that at. the time stated an in dividual, whose name is not now known, but whose description accords with that given by Baguley, suddenly disappeared, and all that could be learned, respecting him was that when last seen he was proceeding in the direction of Baguley 's cottage. This dtid other incidents led to a suspicion that, the Baguley's h*d made away with the mis ? sing man, which suspicion subsequent cir cumstances revived from time to time. At the perioiof- his sudden disappearance, the murdered man professed to be courting one of Baguley's daughters, and, as he was ...

Miscellaneous Extracts. Winter in China..— As the winter ap proached, the weather' became extremely cold ; and in December and January the ice on the ponds and canals was of consider able, thickness. The most attractive shops in the city now were the different clothing establishments, where all articles of wearing apparel were lined with skins of various kinds, many of them of the most costiy de scription, The very poorest Chinese has always a warm jacket or cloak lined with sheep-skin, or padded with cotton, for the winter; and they cannot imagine how the Europeans can exist 'with the thin clothing they generally go about in.

ROMANCE OF ACHILLA'S ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 31 August 1850

ROMANCE OF ACHILLI'S ESCAPE. Thb French authorities at Rome sent a party of . soldiers to escort hiin from the Castle of St. Angelo, under the pretext that his evidence was required at a court martial. On leaving the prison, he was immediately clothed in the uniform of a French soldier, and marched to Civita Vecchia, where he was put on board a war steamer, and at once conveyed to Toulon, from which place he proceeded to Paris. It will be evident that private friendship, could; ,not have ef fected , such an 'escape' as this, and pro-, bably all the concerned regarded it neces cessary to ? get out of a difficulty with as1 little appearance bf formalityas^possiblei A meeting of Christian friends was being held in Paris, at the house of the Rev.

'WELLINGTON. f-BOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] The sale of land at Wellington, advertised for the 21st instant, was held on that day, at Montefiore's, and it was pleasing to see the numerous attendance of the inhabitants of the vicinity, who felt an interest in the sale.

The number of lots inthe township of Wellington, put up for sale was. more than 'there was any demand for, twelve only of these were sold, and eighteen suburban and small country lots were also disposed of. The amount of purchase money for ihe day's sale was £436. There was little or no competition, so that the purchasers may be well satisfied with the new arrangement of holding the sale at Wellington ; while the amount realized proves to the authorities that the alteration is a beneficial one to all patties concerned. The weather still continues unfavourable, and unless we soon get copious showers of ' rain, the coming season will be a disastrous one to .the live stock. Yesterday evening we' h...

With the merits or demerits of Mr. L.'a former productions, or the prosy and ambiguous letter of W.J. J., I shall have little to do. My object is to combat one or two sentences found in Mr. li.'s lett?r on conscience, and to show that whatever may be that Gentleman's pretensions in other scientific matters, he is, to say the least, a miserable theolo gian. If I understand him aright, ho tells me that conscience is educational prejudice, and that eon science only exists where education...
