Guide to the Workhouse. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 28 April 1849

(S-xiide to fclie Worklioxise. (TO YOUNG MARRIED COUPLES.) You are supposed to begin housekeeping with a decent competency, which, Avith indus try and frugality will enable you to live comfortably and put something by. Never therefore think of saving, except of saving yourself trouble. Be sure to rise very late, you Avill thus have less time to spend in minding your affairs. Also, Avives particu larly, be as long as you can in dressing of a morning — Avhereby you will pleasantly get over tAvo, or even three hours, Avhich might have been devoted to domestic drudgery. On no account do anything for yourself that servants can do for you — and therefore do not be content Avith one servant. Bear con stantly in mind the maxims folloAving — It is impossible for a lady to darn stockings. She must never be seen in the kitchen. As to looking after her linen — helping to make beds — or cook — the very thought of such exertions ought to kill her. You should have two dinners daily — one for your ...

Higgledy-Piggledy; or a Domestic Republic. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 28 April 1849

His'g'ledy-Pig^ledy 5 or, a '' Domestic fFrom PwicWs Pocket Booh for 1849.) Whoever takes in his hand the map of Europe, and puts his finger upon London, will cover that once happy spot where the family of Tomkins — sufficiently numerous to give the idea of a nation in minature— flourished under the paternal sway of old Tomkins, affection ately termed the Governor. He exercised a sort of limited, or constitutional, monarchy ; putting a veto occasionally on certain bills ; exercising a right of control over relations, distant as well as. near; regulating the ex travagance of parties ; and while checking un due license or ruinous excess, doing his hest to live in the hearts of those who were sub ject to his authority. The domestic throne, or rather, the paternal arm-cKair, appeared to be cemented to a rug of the most comfortable and solid description, based upon a contented kitchen, a well-disposed nursery, and most of the other guarantees that afford a pledge of family prosperity.

We sat and drank and drank again, From morning until night, And then we sallied forth amain, All by the moon's pale light. We threaded many a dusty street, And many a crooked lane, Then turn'd our weary, wandering feet To take a drop again, But on the road we 'spied a beak With truncheon in his hand, (I thought my very heart would break,) He ordered us to stand. He hurried Ned and I away, Ho cramm'd us in a cell, He vow'd we'd have a fine to pay, And that we knew full well. He took us to an ugly house, Before a dreadful man ; Ned trembled like a dying mouse, Stretch'd on a ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Blackman's Swamp, April 25th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 28 April 1849

©ctflfnal -£m:ccspmttienc*. To the Editor of The Bathuust Advocate. 1 '''.'' Blackman's Swamp, April 25th, 1849. 'SiRj'tt-I perceive that the. Sydney Morning Herald has made a wrong statement concerning the dray robbery 'at! Mary's-lane, on the 13th instant. The Herald says, : only- some , tea and a few bottles of brandy was stolen ; and'also, that the chief constable went out and did his utmost to capture the robbers and regain the property. John Evans, driver of his own dray, states, ' I left the drays as soon as I got loose, and got to Bathurst about' half-after two o'clock in the morning ; I saw the chief constable, and he said he could do nothing until daylight ; '.two policemen went out with me at day light'.'. Now, if the chief constable had sent out at once and had not given the robbers time to carry the goods away, no doubt we should now have had our property. I give you a true account of the robbery I had ori John John Evans' dray, property amounting to £119 Is. as per inv...

Ireland's Crisis. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 28 April 1849

.Ireland's Crisis. C From the Times.) Thr paradox was but one of seeming in which we indulged when we predicted that the crisis of Ireland would be her salvation. We know the temerity of human prophecies, and the vanity of human wishes. But we have read the struggle of nations and the rise of dynas ties ; and we trace in the conflict with unequal fortune, and the victory over tremendous odds, the greatness of purpose and the energy of mind by which a wisdom greater than man's has ordained that tnun's fortune shall hesbnped, nnd his destiny directed. We have faith, th.-n, in the heart, courage, and benrings which mis fortune engenders ; wo believe that Irishmen ?will now put their hands to the good work of extricating their country from the slough of deapond in which she hus lain stagnant .and helplta.s fur centuries. A crisis is coming on. Shaken and shattered by three successive famine?, Irish property is — in irmny districts— tottering to th« same condi' inn as Irish poverty. The ...

To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Cornish Town, April 23,1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 28 April 1849

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Cornish Town, April 23, 1849. Sir, — The term Sinking Fund being by no means ex planatory of its nature; and many persons being un acquainted with the grand scheme of finance, which is n'iiw abandoned, in principle at least. I submit the fol lowing explanation for the benefit of your numerous readers. A sinking fund impliis a sum of money placed out at interest, but for which the interest is not received, but added to the capital, until it accumulates either to a cer tain sum, or for a certain time, or until a certain event takes place. This is likewise called lending money at compound interest. The National Sinking Fund is the reverse of this, it is a sum appropriated annually to the payment of 'paia for_wbatjs, redeemed ;'.that-intereBt'is:irddedit6'-ih» — '. -.original annual;.; funds .towards : the lirmidation'Tof. ;a .larger sum the following year.

Emigration as a Measure of Relief. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 May 1849

Emigration as a S&easuro of Stelief, Okb of the most solid and careful staticians of the. present day computes the amount of per sons liviug by theft, and in idleness, and want, at upwards of 150,000 in the United Kingdom. Now we hold this is not an exaggerated state ment of the social condition of Great Britain and Ireland. Rather iiuleed, it ia the reverse, and yet the Government i3 silent and inactive, although at the same time the state bus at its command upwards of 80,000,000 of acres of land within a few day's sail of London. The vacant crown lands in. Nova Scotia are esti mated at 5,787,772 — 12,300.851 in New Brunswick — 1,000,000 in Prince Edward's Island and Cape Breton — and in Canada, 70,000 000. Again, turn to British America, with all it* wild wastes, uncleared forests, and almost untrodden tracts of land. Why, within that continent alone, we have unoccupied crown lands amounting to upwards of 200,000,000 of acres. And we find ministers meanwhile affect perplex...

The Australian Merino. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 5 May 1849

Tlxe Australian ZVSerlno. Let us now examine the animal producing the ' Good bred Australian wool ' above described ; fine as the finest and at the same time possessing perfect soundness, with ex treme pliability, softness, freeness, and fulness, with as great length of staple as the pasture and climate will support. See how lively it looks ; how bright yet gentle is its eye ; what a fine frame, square, deep, and compact, yet how light and active in its carriage. How beautiful and even in its fleece, covering the whole body from eye to hock. When it moves what an even wave as it rises and falls without one staple projecting above another. On closer examination it proves as valuable as it is beautifnl. See i how clear and ' bright the wool appears, and how slightly its fineness decreases to the breach ; so gradually as almost to be imperceptible, and without the least fall ing off in any manufacturing quality. Look down the centre of the back ; the staples are a little Bhorter, but n...

Within that lovely valley stood His father's humble cot ; Mid scenes of carnage death and blood, That home he'd ne'er forgot. Upon the green his bride lie met, She still was young and fair ; But, ah ! her lovely eye was wet, Her cheeks were pale with care : And he alas, so chang'd was he, The maiden. knew him not, But his proud heart throbb'd bitterly, He thought she had forgot. The soldier's garb soon met her sight, And thus the maiden cried — Oh come and stay with us to night, 'We'll lodging fit provide ; For worn and weary you appear, And such may be the lot, (Then trickled down her cheek the tear) Of him I've ne'er forgot. Oh turn, the joyful soldier said Fair maiden turn and see Him whom thou long hast counted dead Restor'd again to thee. Come, dearest, let us quickly go Unto my father's cot, , Perchance he weep...

SDreadful Explosion. — Thirty Persons billed. (From the Atlas.) Whitehavkn, Thursday, midnight. The population of this extensive mining1 district, among whom casualties arising from gaseous explosion are by no means uncommon, have been thrown into a state of consternation by a catastrophe more than ordinarily destructive of human life, by which with one truly wonderful exception, the whole number of hands engaged in the Whinny-hill Pitt, leased by the Herma tite Mining Company, have been killed. Of these men, 17 were married, and leave behind them each a widow, and in the whole 52 chil dren; while 13, three being lads of the tender age of 12 and 13, were unmarried. The mine at which the accident occured, is about three miles from this town. The accident took place between six and seven o'clock in the morning. The number employed in the pitt was 31, only one of whom escaped — the furnace man, sta tioned in the shaft, haviDg also succeeded in saving his own life. Twenty-five bodies we...
