OPENING OF PARLIAMENT BY HER MAJESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
OPENING OF PARLIAMENT BY HER MAJESTY. Thursday, February 1 , her Majesty opened the Session of Parliament in person. The doors were opened at 12 o'clock, and ladies in full dress continued to arrive in quick succession, until every seat was occupied, and some were compelled to stand for want of room. The Lord Chancellor delivered the Royal Speech to her Majesty, who commanded the commons to be sent for. They immediately appeared at the bar, headed by the Speaker, attired in his State robes, when her Majesty, with her usual distinctness, read the following speech : — THE QUEEN'S SPEECH. My Lords and Gentlemen, — The period being arrived at which the business of Parli ament is usually resumed, I have called you together for the discharge of your important duties. It is satisfactory to me to be enabled to state, that both in* tho north and in the south of Europp, the contending parties have consented to a suspension of arms for the purpose of negotiating terms of peace. The hostilities...
IRELAND. THE STATE OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
IRELAND. THE STATE OF THE COUNTRY. The Cork Examiner, in a sketch of ' an Irish gen tleman's mansion in 1849,' supplies another illus tration of the decadence of landlordism. The main facts connected with it are also confirmed hy a published report of a meeting of the Macroom board of Guardians : — ' Perhaps in Ireland there is not a nobler house and domain, than those which once owned a gen tleman of the ancient name of Massey for their master. The proprietor of Mnssey-town House, ?was said to possess, at one time, a rent roll of £10,000 a year. Whether he possess that now, it is not for us to sayj it is with his house we have to do. That splendid mansion is now in the possession of the guardians of the Macroom union, and used by them as an auxiliary workhouse, it having been surrendered to them at a rent of £!50 a-year. This house, that was at one time the abode of luxury and wealth, a model of order and elegance, is now tenanted by 500 miserable hu man beings, filthy, unwashed, r...
FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
FRANCE. The news fron France by the late arrivnls, is of startling and thrilling interest. The Republic seems to be on the verge of another convulsion. The President's bed is far from being1 a bed of roses ; and, although the troops shout Vive I' Empereur, and Vive la President with martial en thusiasm, there can be little doubt that Louis Nepoleon's dreams of grandeur are as far from being realised, as they were when he miule his ill-starred descent on the shores of France. The French people are proverbially fickle, and proverbially brave. These two national charac teristics bode little good to the stability of an unpopular government. The French army being composed of men more intelligent than the soldiers of some other nations, are not so likely to manifest that mill-horse devotion to dominant authority, which is the characteristic of the Russian and Austrian soldiery. If the Republicans of France are determined to oust the descendant of Napoleon from place and power, they will f...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. May 28, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
dDctrjutal .(Etfi'cesJpmftfcucc. To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. May 28, 1849. Sir, — The apple trees in this neighbourhood arc subject to a disease which causes great annoyance and trouble, and is occasioned by a small insect called ' Aphis,' but better known by tho names of ' Apple Bug, American blight, cotton blight,' &c, &c. It not only attacks the branches, btifc also burrows in the ground and extracts the sap from the roots, and unless measures be taken to remove it quickly, will destroy tho trees. The first appearance of this disease in England was, in a nursery in Sloan c-strcct; it is now found in every part of the kingdom, and I believe, in every part of tho world. It is a minute insect, covered with long cotton, like wool — makes its habitation in the chinks of the bark, and there multiplies very fast. Mr. Loudon, in his ' Encyclopaedia on Gardening,' says, ' It may be effectually extirpated in two ways, cithc1' by anointing the infected trees with...

THE BATHURST PRESS ATTACKED BY THE PHILISTINES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
THE BATESURS1? FKSSS ATTACKED BY THE PHILISTINE®. Let the gall'd jade wince ; Our withers are unwrung. — Sn.VKsrEA.RT:. That noblest work of man — the Press, Blest freedom's guardian angel, E'en here hath foes, who shrewdly guess Facts form a lash to swinge all ! It speaks so loud, that all may hear, So well, that all may listen, So firm, that wrong may disappear, And right take root and fasten. The Press, even here in New South Wales, Can rogues confront, and rate them, And may so fill the land with tales Till other lands repeat them. The Press — ye petty tyrants quake, Proud child of power, be humble, Can make the thrones of Europe shake, And mightiest Mouarchs tremble. Cai/edonian.
Latest English News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
laatest English RTews. By the Port Phillip papers, we are in possession of English News to the 10th February. The news arrived at Launceston, Parliament met on the 1st February. The Fi nancial Reformers were keeping up their agitation. The Pope was still at Gaeta with his court. The Earl of Auckland, first Lord of the Admiralty was succeeded as minister by Sir Francis Baring. On the eve of the opening of Parliament, we have rumours of ministerial purposes and political pro jects, but nothing more remarkable than Mr. Cobden's union with the Finance Reformers, and the resuscitation of the giant league, in nil its members, to war upon their side. The minister, we are assured, is as much in earnest as Mr. Cobden on the subject of reduction, and the Times premises something like four millions of retrench ment as the act of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. A dead set is made at the woods and forests — a cry is up against the ordnance administration — the waste in ship building is denounce...
Wentworth's Boring Apparatus. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
Wentwortli's Soring' Apparatus. A correspondent of the 'London Mining Jour nal,' of December 30, (Mr. John Mullins, of Battersea) thus describes Wentworth's wonderful boring apparatus for miners ? — ' I have not seen in your valuable journal any notice of a miner's boring apparatus, for excavating holes, for blasting rocks, &c, lately invented and patented, a description of which I cannot but think would deeply interest many of your readers. The origin of the invention I understand to be this : — Daniel Watney, Esq., of Wandsworth, being the proprietor of a certain iron ore and other mines in South Wales, on a recent visit, was much struck with the great length of time and expen diture of labour required in boring holes for blast ing the rock ; and on returning to town, requested Mr. John Wentworth and Sons, engineers, of Wandsworth, to direct his attention to the subject, with the object of devising some plan for the saving both of time and labour. The result was the in ven...

Pootry. THE ROCKY RIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
Poetry THE ROCKY RIDGE, The rocky ridge so lately seen — But yesterday at even All deeply brown, or darkly green, — This morning, — praised be heaven For all that makes the bosom glow, Is white with kindly looking snow. How pleasant 'tis to those who roam, Throughout the varied year, To see whate'er recalls the home They left with many a tear ; &nbsp; And so for dear auld Scotland's sake All hail hoar frost and snowy flake ! I've stood on lofty Loch-na-gar, Ere Albert leased Balmoral, Or dreamed the Queen her jaunting ear Along the Dee would whirl ; And thus I give when snow and hail come, To both a hearty highland welcome ! The wealth struck world's great golden calf In California bellows. And well may Satan jeer and laugh, If all be true they tell us ; For me 'tis wealth enough to know That I can warm my breast with snow.

FOREIGN NEWS. THE FRENCH REPUBLIC. DEFEAT OF THE MINISTRY—REFUSAL OF THE ASSEMBLY TO SUPPRESS THE CLUBS—ALLEGED RESOLUTION OF LOUIS NAPOLEON TO RESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 2 June 1849
£? O B, H I £3- SJ NEWS. THE FRENCH REPUBLIC. ('From the News of the World, February 14.) Defeat or the Ministry — Refusal ov the Assembly to Suppress tub Clubs — Alleged Resolution of Loujs Napoleon to Resign. Paths, Sunday Night.— Yesterday was a day of great agitation in Baris, but it has passed off without any out break. The National Assembly rejected, by a majority of 418 to 342, the proposition brought forward by M. Leon Fauchcr, that the law for the suppression of the clubs should be taken into consideration d'urgence. This deci sion is a severe blow to the Ministry. It is equivalent to the rejection of the bill. The assembly also resolved, that the members of the Council of State should be elected by the present Assembly, instead of postponing the election, as was proposed by the Government, till tho meeting- of tho Legislative Assembly. The Procureur-General, in the name of the Government, demanded the authority of the Assembly to prosecute M. Proud lion for a libel on tho ...
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, ...
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...
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,' &nbsp; 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...
