A Young Baronet and His Pals. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 May 1849
?A. Young- Baronet and I£i3 Pals. Skittler entered the parlour of Nick Mawley, in P. R. phrase, the Pluckley Crusher, and looked round for well known faces. It was perfectly lined with pictures of races, fights, coaching, pugilists, and game cocks ; and in which a large company was assembled, as well as could he made out through the crowd of smoke that filled the room. ' How d'ye do, Skittler,' said a youthful voice through the obscurity, in a tone very different to what might have heen expected from the assembled company. ' Ah, Sir Frederick, my service to you,1' replied Skittler, apparently recognising the sound, ' Have a drink,' repeated the voice. And then Skittler advanced to tho end of the room, where the speaker was sitting, on a kind of elevated division of the covered benches that ran around the public-house parlour. He was a mere boy — fourteen or fifteen years of ngc, but dressed in as manly a style as could be contrived ; his slim proportions being swelled out by a varie...

Original Correspondence. To?the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. May 17th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 May 1849
©cttftnal (tLavtaSpanTJente, To the Editor o/Tiie Batiiurst Advocate. May 17th, 18-19. Sin, — Our Chief Constable has been very busy this week going from house to house to get signatures to a petition, and it is supposed that the tenor of it is to let his Excel lency the Governor understand that he is a very efficient officer. As all the proceedings in his case will bo brought under the immediate notice of his excellency, he will best judge, for if Davics' case was a good one, he need not have recourse to such a mode of procccdurc to gloss over the charges preferred agnint him, which, if correct, are highly injurious to the administration of good government, which every British subject expects, and not very creditable to those persons whose signatures are attached, who care not for the oppression of the poor, and who cannot know much of the proceedings, until your next paper appears. JUSTITIA.

And tho persons composing this clique, consisting of tho worst description of persons in tho town, havi! themselves stated that they had felt tho weight of my impartial conduct in rooting out from their houses their best customers, thus depriving' such as Donnally of their principal moans of support. Their customers, your worships know, were composed of the most reckless characters in tin) district, and the safety of tho town demand...

NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 May 1849
HEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND. Wjafhave Auckland papers to the 31st of March, but nothing of particular interest has occurred in the north since our former arrivals. The Gover nor-in-Chief and a party had returned from a visit to the Waikato district, with which they were much pleased. The sale of live stock is again dull in Auckland ; at recent sales the average price of cattle was only £2 9s., horses £1 7, and sheep 10s. each. Continued complaints are made of the waste of the public money, on what by courtesy is called road-making, which means, making bad roads worse. A number of mechanics and otheis* have lately arrived in Auckland from Hobart Town, and it is probable that many more will follow, as there is a great want of employment in Van Diemen's Land, causing much distress. The statistice of the population of Auckland and its vicinity show that, including the pensioners, it numbers 7003 souls, and adding to this the mili tary and their families, 'which numbers 935, gives a total popu...
THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 May 1849
THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1849. ? -^3» ? \V}k may expect that a cargo of evil will shortly be landed on our shores. The exiles despatched 'by Earl Grey, in despite of the wishes of the majority of our colonists, will soon nrrive, and will be dispersed among the sheep-walks of the interior. The Press, with the exception of a few mendacious prints, have sufficiently expounded public opinion on this important topic, and there fore little need be said on the impolicy of trans forming our free country into a penal settlement. There is one matter, however, which cannot be passed over in silence, nnd which tends to awaken sentiments of the deepest shame and most profound ?regret. It is asserted by a Sydney journal that the employers of labour — meaning of course n few ?of the class— are willing to receive from 10 to £'15,000 exiles. We believe the statement to be either an unfounded falsehood, or an emanation from a brain greatly influenced by the fumes of Whiskey-toddy. No ...

THE TRESS SHALL BE FREE ! [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849
THE TRESS SHALL BE FREE ! You may talk of your glorious freedom, Your laws and your charters of right ; But whore are they now when we need 'em, Alas ! have they all ta'en to flight P Shall we suffer the tyrants to drive us, Who call ourselves Britons and free ; Shall we sutler them now to deprive us Of the standard of true liberty ? What ! shall the Republic of letters By the chains of oppression be bound j Shall opinion be galled by their fetters, And sink into darkness profound ! Arise ! if there's spirit among us, Shall we turn from the contest and flee ; Arise against those who would wrong us, Hurrah ! for the Preas shall be fiec. The'Press shall be free, for we prize it — We are not afraid of a frown. The truth ! we shall never disguise it, Hurrah ! we will not be put down.
" A MAN BRIBED." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849
' A MAN BRIBED.' Jack Bevis take a bribo, oh fie ! ' Straight forward, acting' Bovis, When charged with such, let him deny, Or say it was Bcncvis. Who saw him spurn a bribo ! the nioou, He managed that, the wilhiin, And spurned it as a beggar loon Would spurn an offered shilling. st The worst characters. The worst description of persons in the town. The most reckless characters in the dis trict. Not one respcctablo person,' &c. When Satan's heard reproving sin, Iict housewives take their linen in ; Secure all under lock and key, For sheets and shirts take wings and flee. 'Tis always best in civil actions, To stick to facts, and shun reflections. Respectability from Jack, forsooth, Is Jack so nobly soul'cl, so well connected, That wo should take from such a Mentor's mouth, Men's characters so shamefully dissected? Laird 01? Logie.
LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849
&AT3 S£TaX.XSZ£ MBWS. The arrival of the Pemberton at Port Phillip has put us in possession of English news to the 29th of January. For the following summary and extracts we are indebted to the Daily News and Melbourne Herald. The principal items of importance are, that the progress in improvement is unchecked, and the most cheering anticipations are everywhere preva lent. On the 18th of January, a day for the com mencement of the February sales was fixed upon ; it was generally believed the 1st February was to be the date. Larger prices in low priced wools were confidently expected ; a brisk demand for all staples is confidently calculated upon,,, as also, a considerable advance in price. Tallow was flat, owing to the heavy importations that had taken place from all quarters, and no improvement was counted on in this article. The prices realized on tallow shipped by the Posthumous ranged from 40s. 3d.— 40s. 6d.— 40s. 9d. to 41s. 6d. All descriptions of produce were in deman...
New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849
New Zealand. Execution.- On Thursday morning, Mnroro, convicted of the murder of John Branks, near Wellington, underwent the extreme penalty of the law. The prisoner, who since liis conviction has been attended by the M. Lc Comtc, the ltoman Catholic clergyman, in some letters written to his relatives at his dictation, and at his express request, on the day previous to his execution, and also in a letter addressed to his Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, fully confessed his guilt, and declared that ho alone was concerned in these murders, the chief motive which induced him to com mit so dreadful a crime being the desire of revenging him ? self, or of obtaining utu or satisfaction for his previous im prisonment. He also executed some rude drawings, four in number, of the murders, which, from their accuracy in describing the locality, and the relative position of his vic tims after the commission of the crime, could leave no doubt of his guilt. The fatal scaffold had been erected on...
