©rCjrfwal (£ffiTcdp-nttf«iic*, To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. Sir— Having taken into consideration the sub ject of the destruction of the native dog in this colony,;I most respectfully beg leuve to submit the undermentioned plan, which, I think, would in the course of a short time, succeed in exterminating a great pest and annoyance to the sheep farmer and grazier. . 1st.— I would suggest that each district employ a competent huntsman, to be provided with sis brace of fox hounds, the huntsman to be sup ported by a subscription raised from each stock holder; and that he should travel from one estab lishment to another, making periodical visits, where he should employ himself (with the assist ance of any gentleman who \vishod to attend) in going over the runs and destroying any native dogs he could find; the dogs to be fed by the pro prietors of the place where they may be employed. By this constant and systematic hunting, I have no doubt the plan, would succeed in the cour...

The Legislative Couiicil postponed the dis cussion of the, question of transportation with the ostensible ? object of ascertaining the sentiments of the colonists upon it. Nobly have they met the invitation, and . raoat unmistakeably have they expressed their sentiments. Amongst the foremost of those who conceived it necessary to appeal to public opinion upon the subject, wa3 Mr. Wentworth— the patriarch of the transpor tation party ; and we may be allovvedto ask what was his motive ? Can any one believe that he, or they who act or think with him npon the jnatter, purpose accommodating their conduct on the 27th to the expressed wishes of the people? If such was not their intention, then what a mockery and a farce was their parade about taking the. sense of the country. If their object was not to conform to the decision of the peo ple, they must have...

The towers of this enormous building are crowned by the majestic symbols of the British monarchy; its walls are girt with the heraldic ensigns of a long race '.', of kings; its chambers glow with all the associations of chivalry, of religion, and of justice ; and the Palace of Westminster ?will- ere long comprise, as in one perfect whole, the stable memorials of our national history, and the living organs of our politi cal strength.

Zioq&I Intelligence.

Our informant tells us that there were three present, of whom one, unfortunately for the object of, the meeting, happened to be an anti-transportationisr. Had one of the pros, been voted to the chair, the meeting would have come to a dead lock. Perceiving the difficulty, the assem bled multitude very wisely resolved to eshew speeches, cheer their drooping spirits with a comfortable glass, and adjourn the meeting sine die. We will not vouch for the correctness of our information as to the object of the meeting, but are in a position to state that the resignation of Mr. Suttor has been de bated amongst the transportationists ; and we understand that gentleman has express ed his willingness to...
