MR. O'CONNELL AND MORIARTY. MRS. MORIARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 7 September 1850

MR. O'CO N NELL AND ' M RS. : MORI ARTY. - It was at an Irish court of justice that Mr O'Connell could be seen to greatest advan tage. Every quality of the lawyer and the advocate he displayed. He showed re search and perfect mastery of his profession, and he exhibited his own great and innate qualities. Who that ever beheld him on the Munster circuit, when he was in the height of his fame, but must have admired his prodigious versatility of formidable powers. His pathos was often admirable ; his humour flowed without effort or art. What jokes he uttered! — what sarcasms! How well he worked his case through, never throwing away a chance, never re laxing his untiring energies. One of the drollest scenes of vituperation that OVonnel) ever figured in took place in the early part of his life. Not long after he was called to the bar, his character and pe culiar talents received rapid* recognition from all who were even casually acquainted with him. His talent for vituperative language wa...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 14 September 1850

CALIFORNIA. . Collision with the Indians at Clear Lake.— A party of Indians, living in and \ about the Sonoma district, after committing many murders and other outrages, in No vember last fled to Clear Lake, which is a sheet of water forty miles long and from six. to eight miles wide, lying some fifty miles north of Sonoma. Having been pur sued by the troops, they took refuge in one of the numerous islands of the lake. This they have made their abode ever since, set ting the troops at defiance and maintaining an attitude of hostility towards all the whites. , Until recently the condition of the roads rendered access to the lake impassible for an armed force. About ten days since, however, Captain Lyon was ordered to pro ceed to Clear Lake, and to punish and dis lodge: the Indians from their stronghold. The latter had fortified their position, and had provided a quantity of provisions suffi cient to enable them to sustain a twelve months' siege. They defied the soldiers on their appr...

The controversy has now assumed a u shape, which renders it totally unfit for the columns of a newspaper.
