Suggested Improvements for Wine Growers. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849

Suggested Improvements for Wine Growers. We have been requested by several of our sub scribers who are interested in the culture of the Vine, and who think wine might become a valuable articleof our commerce, to publish the fol lowing article on the subject. Those who are en gaged in the manufacture of wine, and even those who merely grow the vine for the sake of its fruit, will find much that is interesting in Mr. Banfield's remarks, DESCRIBING THE PROCESS ADOPTED, WITH THE UEST RESULT, ON THE RHINE, AND IN SOUTHERN 'EUROPE. It will not appear singular that principles for wine-making should be wanted in distant colonies, ?when we consider that, with all the progress that has been made in chemical experiments, the true principle, which ensures a constant quality of Wine from the same grape, when ripened equally, has only within a few years been established satis factorily in Europe. As late as the appearance of 3VI. Liebig's ' Chemical Letters,' (1st edition), the true prin ciple of...

SOUTH AUSTRAXaSiL. We have received files of South Australian papers to tho 25th April. On the 22nd April the ship John Mitchell, from Ply mouth tho 5th January, arrived at Adelaide. Tho annual meeting of tho Burra Burra shareholders was held on the 18th April, and below will bo found, from the Soutlt Australian, an abstract of the report, and a his tory of tho mine.

The BcmnA Bubka Mines. — Since the preceding an nual meeting two very important occurrences had taken place, which exercised a most material influence on the affairs of the South Australian Mining Association. The French revolution had affected trade in Britain to such an extent, that a fall in the price of copper ore to the amount of .£9 per ton was the consequence ; and the strike of the workmen at the mines had Caused a suspension of opera tions for three months.

Lamentable Downfall of the House of Buckingham. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849

SjaaaeataMe ISo-wafall of tlie SEouso of E&ticMnffiaasa. CFroiii the Times. J The British public has lately been admitted to a spectacle of a painfully interesting; and gravely historical import. One of the most splendid abodes of our almost regal aris tocracy hiis thrown open its portals to an endless succes sion of visitors, who flowed in an uninterrupted stream from room to room, and floor to floor — not to enjoy the hospitality of the- lord, or to congratulate him on the countless treasures of art, but to see an ancient family ruined, their palace marked for destruction, and its contents scattered to the four winds of Heaven. Wo art' only saying what is notorious, and what, therefore, it i.-i neither a novelty nor a cruelty to repeat, that the nn . ; Noble and Puissant Prince, his Grace the Duke of Biiel. ingliam and Chandos, is at this moment an absolute ruiuis' and destitute man. Our advertising columns have iiitn - duccd to the public the long list of estates, propert...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849

THE EATIIU11ST ADVOCATE. 'SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1S49. In His Excellency the Governor's speech ad. dressed to the Legislative Council on the 1 7th instant, a variety of topics are enumerated in a style peculiar to the speeches of kings, queens, and their coloniul representatives. His Excel lency commences by stating that, the political convulsions of Europe have exerted a depreciatory influence on Colonial property, and especially on our great staple — wool. In order to counter balance the evil effects of this calamitous change, arrangements are in progress for the importation ofa large supply of labour ; and this, it is expected, will so diminish the cost of production, as to ensure a fair profit to colonial capitalists. There are some persons who cavil at all this— who would keep the population of this colony stationary as to numbers, and who object to the employment of the land fund for emigrational purposes. Such persons display the minimum of political foresight and sagacity in such...

The Breeding of Sheep for Tallow. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849

Tbe Breeding1 of Sheep for fallow. The following article from the Melbourne Argus of the 1st iustant, may furnish a useful hint for those flock-masters who have runs well adapted for the breeding; of large-carcassed sheep : — 'A flock of 3000 wethers, the property of Mr. W. I. T« Clarke, was last week boiled down at the establishment of Messrs. Philpot, and yielded an average of 40£ lbs. each. There is something in this which should be suggestive to our squatters. It is almost unnecessary to say, that these wethers were nearly pure Leicester, a brood for which Mr. Clarke has long been celebrated. At this time, when the price of wool is putting our settlors so severely to their shifts, we think the question might fairly be argued, whether a very largo portion of their number have not long been on the wrong- tack 'altogether ; whether the wool balo has not held too sovereign a supremacy over the tallow cask. We know that the Leicester cry is an unpo pular one j that the fine wool riva...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849

IRELAND       THE cholera had appeared in Belfast, and was ex- pected to be a severe scourge to this unfortunate country — but not to the fearful extent of 1831-2. We find no notice of the State Trials, but from a paragraph in the Times of the 26th January, it may be inferred that the Irish Bench gave an ad- verse judgment in the case of the Queen v. T. F. Meagher ; as that journal states it not to be the intention of Mr. Meagher to take his case to the House of Lords. The Attorney- General had sustained a severe defeat in the case of the man Gogarty, who was convicted of illegal drilling, and sentenced to seven years' transportation. A writ of error was sued out, and the full Court gave judgment in fa- vour of the prisoner, who with twenty others under similar circumstances were discharged from custody. Mr. Gavin Duffy's trial has been postponed to next commission : an application to admit him to bail was refused. Several murders had been comm...

The Ebenezer Mine on Grosvenor Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 20 May 1849

The Sbenezer X&ine on Grosvenor Farm. Some few months back a, lad by the name of Ebcnezer Read discovered a piece of quartz containing veins of lead on Grosvenor Farm, the property of Charles Suttor, Esq. This induced tho lad's father to make further search on the range of hills where the quartz was found, and led to the discovery of a large strata of quartz richly impregnated with the sibove mineral. Mr. C. Suttor mado tho lad a small present, and gavo tho elder Read, and a son-in-law of Read's, named Howard, permission to work on tho above-named strata for a term of three years. They sunk a shaft to the depth of 18 feet, but finding it too expensive for two individuals in their humble circumstances, they were for giving it up, when Mr. Suttor suggested to thorn, that, what they could not do individually might bo effected by a company. He, at tho same time, offered to give a lease of tho land (280 acres) to a company for tho term of 21 years, on condition that 10 x-cv cent,...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Bathurst, May 23rd, 1S49. SIR,— You will greatly oblige the undersigned, and per- haps benefit the public, by inserting in your valuable columns the following unexampled case of culpable neglect on the part of the Post Master of this town. A letter was addressed to me from Sydney, to be left at the Bathurst Post Office till called for; it left Sydney April 3rd, and of course arrived here on the 5th. I have called at the Post Office every post day since and always received the same answer — nothing for you, till to day, the 23rd of May, when a gentleman whom I met told me that my name was among the list of unclaimed letters at the Post Office. I immediately went and asked if there were any letters for me, and received the usual answer nothing for you ; but when I mentioned that I was in the list of unclaimed letters, the long looked for epistle was produced. Sir, perhaps you can inform me how I am to seek redress, as I ...

To the Editor of The BATHURST ADVOCATE. Bathurst, June 1, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, June 1, 1849. Sir, — In reference to a paragraph in your last, on the subject of the night watch, I would feel obliged if you would give this a corner in your valuable columns. The organization of the night watch appears to me to be a singularly constructed thing. No doubt you are aware that there are four men on the list, under the donomina tion of night watchmen, merely differing from the con stabulary by being paid by the public, but they are just as much under the control of the police authorities. In my opinion, this is not doing the public justice; why not be under the management of those who pay them ? The night watchmen are supposed to commence duty at 12 o'clock every night, are we aware that it is the case — they might be asleep, or sitting in some remote part of the town having an hour or two's gossip, in lieu of pa trolling the streets, an instance of which we have had a short time since. I am informed that the four watch...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849

IEELAND. The corporation of Dublin, formerly so violent against Lord Clarendon, had presented him with an address, in which they express their strong approval of the manner in which .he' lately exer cised the extraordinary power entrusted to him for the maintenance of order. The North of Ire land has been the scene of incendiary fires, so systematically conducted as to leave no doubt whatever that they are the result of regular or ganisation. The better class of the poor have emigrated extensively, and especially from the im mediate locality of the fires. Two Roman Catho lic bishops, Dr. Maginn, of Derry, and Dr. Walsh, of Cloyne and Ross, had breathed their last. The judges have delivered their sentiments upon the subject of the writs of error in the case of Smith O'Brien, &c. They declare the writs entirely groundless. Sentence will now be pronounced upon the traitors, who seem to have entirely lost the sympathy of their deluded countrymen. Few people were attracted to the...

TALK ON CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849

TALK OF CHANGE. The talk is, that emigration is a very good thing, and is going on very well ; but that, like other good things, there may be too much of it ; that government, having got the colonies into a fix, under a promise of sending half free and half con vict labour, meditate saddling them exclusively with the latter, chiefly at colonial expense ; that the colonies will be compelled to take it, rather than go without, especially when the money has been advanced or voted to the executive ; that the only money the home government will give to emigration is to clear rural workhouses and re lieve manoeuvring landlords ; that pauper labour is exactly what the colonists view as a plague and a burden ; that the Colonial Office snap their fingers at remonstrants 16,000 miles away; that a connivance at jobbery is the characteristic of the system throughout the department; that Earl Grey and Mr. Hawes know it, but can't help themselves; that the latter is a man of the best intentions, ...

THE GREAT LIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849

THE GREAT LIBEL. In our last publication we inserted a verse from a valuable and much esteemed correspondent, in which verse some person or persons were attacked and their long line of illustrious ancestry and family connections exposed. The alleged libel is headed "Jack Crib and his Family Crew,'   and contains a slashing and sledge-hammer attack on some person or persons, resident either in the town of Bathurst or elsewhere. The name of the person to whom the said verse applies is a secret which rests in the bosom of the author, and the name of the author is a secret which rests in the bosom of ourselves, and which will rest there, for— ' Brutus is an honourable man.' Mr. Davies, the chief constable of Bathurst, however, has displayed his sagacity and legal acumen by taking the verse to himself, and hug ging the darling poesy to his bosom as applicable to himself and none other, has commenced an action for libel against ourselves. The summons has been served, the lawy...
