IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 May 1849

IRELAND. Awful Condition of the Ihish Peasantry. — In Skibbereen there are 8,000 paupers, whose only breakfast is their porridge provided by the work house. In Erris, Mayo, whole estates have been converted into so many wild wastes through death from starvation, or the wretched. seeking shelter in the work-house. On one estate there were 600 £2 tenants, all of whom have disappeared. The received of another estate under the Court of Chancery applied for leave to surrender his office as he could not collect the rents ; nothing but squalid poverty, disease, and death, presents itself. Out of an estate, upon which between £20,000 and £30,000 has been lately expended, the pro prietor cannot obtain the tithe of his rent. At Doona, a village in Ennis, two families, Lennane and Quin, nine in number, occupied a small mud cabin, Lennane, the father, was in prison for sheep stealing. His wife and children were therefore compelled to enter the work-house, but lately left it that they might eat ...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 May 1849

THE BATHURST ADYOOATE, SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1849. The Emigration movement takes precedence of all other movements in the British Isles. At no period in the history of that great and powerful country, has there been such a marked and visible desire to cross stormy seas in search of a living and a home. Every paper that reaches this coun try is half filled with reports of meetings held for the purpose of promoting colonization and with leaders on the subject of emigration. Reports of meetings held for the purpose of promoting coloni zation, leaders on the same subject, reviews of pam phlets on colonial topics, &c, are the staple mate rials on which the intellectuality of the British press is at present employed. Emigration ! Emigration ! Emigration ! is the everlasting cry on which an interminable series of changes are rung throughout the length and breadth of Old England. The whole population seem to have suddenly become enamoured of colonial manners, colonial land, and colonial...

People who ought to Emigrate. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 May 1849

People wlio ought to Emigrate. Irish landlords who have made the atmosphere of the Emerald Isle too hot to hold them, would j do well to exchange it foi the more temperate { climate of Australia, in order to cultivate the es tates whence they are to derive their revenues. They might break up their quarters and decamp to the musical accompaniment of ' The rents we leave behind us.' Country gentlemen, who have no other vocation than that of field sports, should betake themselves to the backwoods of America, and live by their hunting and shooting, instead of existing solely for those objects. It would be ad visable, also, that a large majority of the members of the turf and fancy — whether of the ring, the dog, or the pigeon order — should repair to the colonies, where they would not be in the way, but out of it, which, for many of them, would be a very eligible position. With them might depart all the young gentlemen who have nothing to do except ' pull on the river,' in which species...

Match against Time, Twenty miles in the Hour. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 May 1849

Match against Time, Twenty Miles in the SSour. The match in the which Woodpecker was backed to trot 20 miles in the hour, and in which he failed, is thus described : — ' Francis D ? .Esq., match ed his horse Woodpecker, 500 dollars, against 1000 dollars, to trot twenty miles in the hour. Woodpecker is dark chesnut, sixteen hands high, seven years old, said to be half brother to James K. Polk, of pacing notoriety. The match was made after the Sth November, and to come off within six weeks. The horse has been only a few weeks from grass, and went into training quite low in flesh and strength. He had been matched against Ripton, two mile heats, and got very little training except for that match. But as there was little hope of having a decent track later in the season, his owner decided to start him on Satur day, the 18th ultimo. 'Never did a noble animal go on a race course to strive for his life under more unfortunate cir cumstances. It was a strife for life, as I take it, no horse c...

Irish Pauperism And English Tax Payers. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 May 1849

Erish Pauperism And English Tax -Payers. We have seen that an organised system: of plunder called a state church, robs the famishing peasantry of Ireland of £2,000,000 sterling every year, to pamper the aristocracy and their creatures. We have seen that absentee landlordism wrests twenty-one millions sterling every year from the famished peasantry of Ireland. We have seen what the consequences are — spiritual destitution and physical misery, the most intense and the most inveterate — a vast population steeped in crime and ignorance, rotting in mud huts, and grazing on damaged potatoes— enormous masses of produce reared by the Irish people, snatched from their mouths, and sent to supply the rapacity of a greedy aristocracy — their luxury is paid for by the morsels torn from the mouth of famishing labour— they grow fat on the starvation of the Irish, people— their fulness is the emptiness, the bitter hunger of an entire population. The aris tocracy are the principal delinquents, as th...

Financial State of Europe. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 May 1849

Financial State of Europe. (From the Brussels Nation. J No one can doubt that the economical and financial position of Europe has been in a great degree the cause of the late convulsions which have occurred — equally in those countries in which political causes have produced the i evolutions and in those in which apparent tranquility now exists. A coup-d' ceil therefore, at the general financial state of Europe would be a criterion for measuring the interests of the crisis and its probable results. That part of the charge which is now most op pressive generally on the people is the debt caused by the long wars into which the various countries have entered during and since the reign of Louis XIV, and especially at the commencement of the present century, and the expense and maintenance of the permanent armaments which have not only absorbed an infinitely large portion of the pro ductive labour of the people, but have occupied the labour itself of a large portion of most efficient and...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 May 1849

For the first time, perhaps, since the establish ment of municipal institutions in Ireland, there is | now no Lord Mayor for Dublin ; a fact, however, much more curious than important. The then Lord Mnyor was rejected, on Saturday, for the ward of St. Andrew ; he was, however, elected for St. Patiick's. But the election in the latter ward was illegal, two town councillors instead of one having heen chosen. The return is therefore void ; and Mr. Jeremiah Dunne not having a seat in the town council, has actually ceased to be Lcrd Mayor. There is a clause in the Irish Municipal Act to meet this contingency, by requiring a new election for Lord Mayor within ten days after the office has become vacant. Mr. Dunne will be duly elected for St. Patiick's Ward in a few days, and then he will be re-elected as Lord Mayor by the Corporation. The Protestant Archbishop of Dublin stated in a late charge to the clergy, that the Protestants of England subscribed £200,000 last year towards the support...
