Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 June 1849
Colonial N?Vews.? TnAL?ow PAO.AGEs.-WO are informed that Mltr. Ayerst, who has commenced boil ing-down at Drayton, intends to try the sys tem of packing tallow, that has recently been brought uudcr the notice of the public, namely, in bullock-hides. If the experiment shall prove successful, it will be the means of effecting a very important saving in car 'iage and coopcrs' aocounts.--M.B. Courier. CAT?nnr.-I-t is with much regret that we hear of the riapid spread of this ruinous disease amongst some 'of the'flocks on Darling Downs. 'It was hoped, on the first appear ance of the, disorder, that strict care in sepa rating the sound from the unsound sheep, and a free use of the boiling pot, would· pre vent any serious extension of the evil; but; notwithstanding all precautions, many proprietors have already suffered severely, and the malignant scourge is alarmingly in creasing; It will' be the duty of the stock holders to' avail themselves of the penalties imposed by law. for the purpo...
AN INFORMER'S GRATITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 June 1849
AN INFORiMER'S GiRATITUDE. Time was When one good turn, another brought, And opportunity was even sought-to do it As Coleman tells us; vide his " Grins so Broad," In that famed tale, where Dick the glazier Spoils the landlord's kettle, To get the man of mettle- ': TOt THE TINKER." A good day's work:? Of course--Tom in return Smashes the windows of the psrish church, Hoping the glazier, would thereby obtain Work for a month !! But though the event turn'd out disastrous, The tinker's gratitude was still the same; But there are some, in our days, From whom we might expect much better things, Who seem t' reverse The good old days of Tom and Dick, And while partaking of a goodly turn, Chuckle at misery, themselves the authors of, As you shall hear.

Original Poetry. LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 June 1849
LINES. WE met: and from that fatal hour I have not ceased to think of thee; For ev'ry look and word of thiue Is treasur'd in my memory. We met again: and then methought Thy sweet voice had a kinder tone; And smiles lit up thy dark blue eyes, Whose gaze was fix'd upon my own. This foolish heart was fill'd with hope, I thought not of the vanity Of human love-for thou had'st smiled: That hour sealed my destiny. Alas i that hope too quickly fled, That dream of bliss too soon was o'er; For pride opposed my love for thee, And bade me think of thee no more. (How vain, how weak is human pride, Death, the great leveller of all Spares not the mighty ones of earth, Esteems alike the great and small. And yet we bow before the shrine Of pride, frail mortals, still we err; And offer up our happiness Our hearts, aye, e'en our souls to her !) Yet why do I repine, am I The only one for whom no gleam Of hope is left, upon whose lip The smile of joy may never beam? Turn, my ungrateful heart, to Him " ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 June 1849
]Foar the Sydney Morning Heralds now before us, the proceedings of the Legislative Council afford little matter for com ment. With the exception of the expul sion of Mr. Martin from the House by the Sergeant-at-Arms, Honorable Mem bers appear to have settled themselves down to the business of the country. True it is, such work-a-day matters as HJawliers' and Pedlers Bills, &c., admit but little scope for oratory, they but rarely furnish topics for discussion out of doors and di minish considerably from the resources of the Press, nevertheless they form the fun damental legislation of every country. It is a well known fact, that in countries, such as America, where the institutions are based upon equality, it is seldom that an opportunity occurs to discuss principles af fecting the rights, or dive into philoso phical disquisitions, concerning the relations of man; there are certain admitted facts affecting such qcuestions, upon which the legislation of the country is based.

All accounts concur that gold is 'to . be obtained for the labour lof: searching, and that immense quantities of that -precious metal have been accumulated by innumerable individuals; all accounts: concur, likewise, .in stating that there is "elbow room" suficient for thousands--aye, trens~of-thousands. , ;Cqnsequentl.y,,l it is not surprising that the fill t?i~et::f emigration should-pour towards the shlidg? of Vestern Ambrica, and that the "far west" should . not be longer a term cxpressive of an incal callable distance from civilization.

THE PUNJAUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 June 1849
THE PIJNJAT;B. [From the Indian News, January 9th, 1849.] WHATEVER may be the result of the pi'e sent military operations in the Punjaub, and there' can be no cluestion as to what that re sult will be, whether we regard the immense military preparations made to crush the re volt at a blow, or the incapacity of the lead& ers of the rebellious moveitent-it cannot be concealed that the outbreak which has taken place is fraught with momentous con sequences to our Eastern Empire. We find ourselves under the necessity of assembling a larger army than that by which the Pun jaub was conu nered.

MRS. FORTESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 June 1849
MRS. FORTESCUE. NoTl always shall I confine my readers to the uncertain light of a lady's chamber, with the shutters half closed, the whisper of soft-treading feet, the rattle of the candle cups, and the plaintive wail of infancy. I am not surprised that the critic begins to growl and lash his tail. But I mean now to lead him gently by the mane to the gay and agreeable village of Kensington, and invite him to lap a little of my best-flavour ed Iyson, in my own neat-furnished draw ing-room there; when I trust he will resume his former amiable sweetness of disposition, and lay himself quietly down on the hearth rug, before a blazing fire, and listen patient ly to the following narrative. As I had promised Mirs. HLarcourt, on her death-bed, that I[would take the charge of her infant boy for one entire twelvemonth, I hired a small elegant house at Kensington for that purpose; the general having, before his departure for the West India govern ment, made me a most liberal allowance, to en...

ADMlNISTRATION OF T°HE LAW. THE report from the Law Commissioners has been printed by order of the Legislative Council, and as the alterations in the ad ministration of justice, proposed by it are of such vital consequence to the community at large, we think we cannot do better this week than to place before our readers in a brief manner, the recommendation of the Commissioners. It is proposed that a fourth Judge be added to the Bench of the Supreme Court, but, unless it be thought expedient, only three Judges will sit in Banco and on appeal. The fourth Judge, or the Bench in rotation, whichever is thought advisable by a future arrangement, shall proceed twice a year, at equidistant intervals, to Moreton Bay, and hold a, Circuit Court at Brisbane. Circuit Courts are recommended to be held three times a-year, at all places where such Courts are now held twice a-year, and these Circuits to be extended, as soon as an arrangement could be made for the erection of Gaols and Court-houses,...
