CALIFORNIAN EXPEDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 2 June 1849
CALIFORNIAN EXPEDITIONS. A glance at the TIMES advertisements will show that the public appetite for California is likely to be promptly met. The burden of the various vessels announced as ready for immediate departure amounts, even in to-day's impression to about 5,000 tons, dis tributed in ships ranging from 190 to 700 tons, to say nothing of the West India mail steamer which leaves on the 17th carrying goods and passengers to Chagres, or of a 'short and pleasant passage' advertised to Galveston, in Texas, as a cheap route to the Pacific. The rates range from £25 upwards, to suit all classes. Thus far however, we have only the arrangements for those who are able to move. The opportunities pro vided for those who wish to share the ad vantages of the new region without its dan gers are still more ample. Indeed, so im posing are the plans for an extensive invest ment of capital, for carrying on the trade in shares of £5 each, that it would seem as if the first of the affair would be ...
Select Poetry. A FEMALE CONVICT TO HER INFANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 2 June 1849
A FEMALE CONVICT TO HER INFANT. OR! sleep not, my babe, for the morn of to morrow, Shall soothe me to slumber more tranquil than thine ; The dark grave shall shield me from shame and from sorrow, Though the deeds and the doom of the, guilty are mine. Not long shall the arm of affection enfold thee, Not long shall thou hang on thy mother's fond breast; And who with the eye of delight shall behold thee, And watch thee and guard thee, when I am at rest? And yet doth itgrieve me, to wake thee, my dearest, The pangs of thy desolate mother to see: Thou wilt weep when the clank of my cold chain thou hearest, And none but the guilty shall mourn over me. And yet I must wake thee-for while thou art weep ing, To calm thee I stifle my tears for a while; But thou smil'st in thy dreams, while thus placidly sleeping, And oh! how it wounds me to gaze on thy smile. Alas, my sweet babe with what pride had I prest thee,. To the bosom that now trobs with terror and shame, If the pure tie of virtuous af...

MANEROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 2 June 1849
t JANEROO. IN or about two months ago, two persons, one a man of the middle age, the other a beardless lad, hired as shepherds with Mr. Gum, Mrs. Hlarnctt's superintendent, at Bredbow; they followed their avocations for a day or two, when lo! and behold! the young shepherd was, by some miraculous meta thesis transformed into a " fair shepherdess." The sudden metamorphosis soon took wing, and with extraordinary velocity reached the " guardians of public order," at Cooma, the nearest police sta. tion, when Butler, a sub-constable, intruded him self, (as butler's generally do) upon the retirement of the old shepherd and the young mess-mate, and led them from tending their innocent flocks to a less innocent retreat, in the shape of a lock-up, at Cooma. Our heroine still in her shepherd's dress, her hair cut short, and wearing a blue cap, nothing daunted, prepared to march, On their way to the last mentioned place, the party halted for a short time at Mr. Driscol's,, twelve miles from Co...

Country News. YASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 2 June 1849
Country News. [RROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] YASS. QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. --- The Yass cricketers cele brated the birth day of our Sovereign by a Ball for the benefit of the Yass Hospital. The affair passed off in a manner highly creditable to all the parties concerned : after paying the expenses the sum of £8 8s. was handed to the Treasurer of the Hospital, which, considering the inclemency of the weather, is a large sum for a village like this. It is a pity that all classes of the conmmunity do not go hand in hand for purposes of the kind, but we are slaves to fashion. Oh for a return of the olden time when the squire and the lady would meet the villagers at a dance on the green: surely that would be a better state of things. When charity is concerned than the present " stand off the grass, I am better than you," so pre velent in the present day. May 30th, 1849.

THE RiEMEMBRANCES OF A MONTHLY NURSE. THE IIARE-LIP. [CONTINUED FROM10 OUR LAST.] * Now 6omes the time," thought I. " Iow replete with this world's goods is this gen tleman ! " and I cast my eyes on the valua ble paintings in the room, the splendid cut glass, desert-service, decanters, and glasses, on the rich foreign cloth which adorned the table. " Did you mark the exact minute, nurse, that he was born ?" and he drew forth a gold repeater, worth at least a hundred gui neas. Surprised that I did not immediately an swer, he fancied it arose from his not having presented me with the accustomed present on such occasions. He counted out five sovereigns on the table, and bidding me be careful of little " Thomas Gresham," for so he meant to call him, and his dear Mary, and that sum should be more than doubled. I did not put forth my hand to take the money; but fixing my eyes on his face, I slowly said, " There is a slight defect, sir, I am sorry to say in the dear baby's face; but it can...

MELBOURNE MARKET—FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 9 June 1849
MELBOURNE MARKET--FaIDX, JUNE 1,1849. GnRAx.-During the last week the price of wheat has advanced a little, some samples having sold as high as 4s. per bushel. This rise is owing partially to the state of the weather curtailing the supplies sent in from the country, but principally to the upward tendency which the Sydney Market has lately exhibited. The Melbourne is always influ enced more by the Sydney Market than by any local circumstances, and as yesterday's mail brings the intelligence of a futrther rise there, the same may be confidently looked for here.

SYDNEY MARKETS.—FRIDAY, JUNE 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 9 June 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS.-FRIDAY, JUNE 1. CFrom the Sydney Morning Herald, June 2.] WE have very few sales to report, owing in a great measure to the inclemency of the earlier part of the week. Importers of eastern produce universally complain. Buyers hold back in consequence of ad vices received of Sugar on the way for this place; the quantity, though large, has always a more dead ening effect on-the market when in perspective than on the spot, and although it has been the cause of some parties offering at a very low figure, we cannot see that much is to be apprehended from what is coming forward, as prices are likely to range high in the eastern markets. Several vessels are now on the way up for Sugars, having cleared out for various fictitious places. It is much to be regretted that it is not made public when these vessels leave for the sugar growing countries, as many parties would not send forward did they know the quantity of tonnage already chartered, and so much secrecy has fre quentl...
