The “Times" on Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
The ' dimes'' on Ireland. Our readers will pardon us for again recurring to unhappy Ireland. It is with no pleasure, but as a solemn duty only, we resume the subject. In this respect we have no option. The imminency and unrencv of the tonic — the hundreds of letters we daily receive from Irish landlords still abiding in their, unhappy country— rand from others who had fled to Devonshire, to Bath, and to other cheap quarters of England, constrain us to speak out. These letters, one and all, point to the antagonist articles of the Times ; and the writers, from the continued series of attacks in that paper, infer that the fixed intention of the Whig government is to destroy, as far as in them lies, the present race of Irish landlords. But in this, our correspondents, we think, go somewhat beyond the fact. The Whig Radical clique have, no doubt, no active sympathy with — no compassion for the Irish landlords. But we do not believe the government as a body to be ac tuated by the crude an...
California Expeditions. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
Californian Expeditions. CFroin the Times.) A glance at the Times advertisements will show that the public appetite for California is likely to he promptly met. The burden of the various ves sels announced as ready for immediate departure, amounts, even in to-day s impression, to about 5000 tons, distributed in ships ranging from 190 to 700 tons, to say nothing of the West India mail 3teamer which leaves on the 17th, carrying goods and passengers to Chagres, or of a ' short and pleasant passage' advertised to Galveston, in Texas, as a cheap route to the Pacific. The rutes ranges from £25 upwards, to suit all classes. Thus far, however, we have only the arrangements for those who are able to move. The opportuni ties provided to those who wish to share the ad vantages of the new region without its dangers are still more ample. Indeed, so imposing are the plans for an extensive investment of capital, for carrying on trade, in shares of £5 each, that it would seem as if the first effect...

[Advertisement.] ' Ho that filches from me from my good nnmo, robs mo of Hint which uot enriches him, ami mukos mo poov iiulcud.' Bathurst, 8th June, 1849. MR. EDITOR,— Seeing that Mv Davies has taken it into his sapient head to take legal proceedings against you, for giving insertion to some lines in your pub lication of the 20th ultimo, I beg to make a few remarks thereon — the subject upon which he is proceeding is not tasteful nor becoming any one ; but what is Mr. Davies doing ? Is he not publicly acknowledging that be is the person* so disgracefully connected? I am sorry for him, and should have thought that his own experience would have pointed out to him, that silence was tho most prudent course to pursue ; which in the end lie will find. Would it not have been move wise to have taken no notice at all ? I am afraid that he is egged on bv his seeming friends. 'If the cap fits him' not, ho ought to have laughed it off ; or refute the inuendo, iu tho manner it was made — to hav...
To the Editor of The BATHURST Advocate. Bathurst, June 7, 189. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
To the Editor of The Batiiuiist Advocate. Bathurst, June 7, iS9. Sin, — Will you oblige me by inserting this letetr in your impartial journal. My object in writing is to show the reasons that urged me to give evidence in Mis. Convoy's case against Mr. Davies, which are as follows : — In the month of December last, Mr. Donnally mentioned to me how he was annoyed by the Chief Constable, and asked me how ho should act ; saying that he had already spoken to Mr. Thomas Jones on the subject, also to Mr. Walsh, attorney, who told Mr. Doimnlly that he would speak to the police magistrate about it. I said to Mr. Donnally that I would consult n. magistrate, and hear his opinion — I did so when the magistrate told me to let the Chief Constable alone, that impunity would encourage him to go on to destruction; in fact to 'let him have rope enough and ho would hang himself.' Some time prior to this, Mrs. Convoy had complained to me that she could do but little in her business from the continual a...

THE LIBEL TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
THB LiSBI- TRAT. Some person has had the kindness to send us a letter through the post, ccntaining a series of doggrell verses, reflecting upon some of the most respectable inhabitants of the town and neigh bourhood. These verses are accompanied by a polite note, with a fictitious signature, requesting us to give them insertion ' in our highly impartial journal,' &c, We are not such fools as the writer takes us to be. The manuscript contains a gross libel on several of the magistrates, and also on many other gentlemen resident in the district. We are not in the habit of publishing such trash, nor shall we attack private gentlemen. So much for the trap laid for us. Mow, as to its Author shiTD. Shortly after the establishment of this journal, a letter was brought to us, we believe by a con stable, who stated that he had picked it up near the Police Office. The letter contained an attack on a certain magistrate, in reference to the tactics adopted by him during the lust electio...
The "Pardon" of Mr. Barber. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
Tiio ' Pardon' of B-Ir. 53arber. Sir George has at last yielded to common sense, and the representations of influential persons. He is now convinced that Mr. Barber was innocent of the crime for which he was convicted and pun ished. It is now apparent to Her Majesty's pre sent adviser that an act of injustice has been done — the law, not the convict, has committed an offence. Therefore he advises the crown to grant Mr. Barber a 'pardon' for having been falsely accused and wrongly convicted. The Home Secretary accompanies this act of stereotyped official generosity with some observations which surely might have been spared. It seems Sir George Grey thinks Mr. Barber acted imprudently — that by his confidence in those around him he laid himself open, not to suspicion, but to deli berate treachery ; and we are therefore to infer that the jury had some kind of excuse for their judgment. Why, what sort of morality is this ? Investigate the transactions of the respectable lawyers and merc...
Reprimand to the Chief Constable of Bathurst. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
Sleprimand to tho Chief Constable of EJathursfc. We stated in our last, that we should this week offer some additional remarks on the evidence brought against Mr. Davies during the late exa mination at the Police Office. We hear, however, that the £rovernment has declared its oninion. and that Davies has been severely reprimanded on one of the charges, and acquitted on the other two. We have been informed, by undoubted authority, that Mr. Davies would certainly have been dis missed, had it not been for the strong recommen dations of our Police Magistrate. As the affair is therefore settled, any further remarks would only be opening old sores, which we have no desire to do.
UNJUST PRINCIPLE OF THE GOVERNMENT SYSTEM OF EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
UNJUST PRINCIPLE OF THE GOVERN MENT SYSTEM OF EMIGRATION. CFrom the London Mercantile Journal. ) On the subject of emigration the Government ap pears to us to have committed two cardinal sins against the middle and working classes of this country; for it is evidently doing what it ought not to do, and is refusing to undo what it ought to have undone many years ago. Jt is moreover an aggravating feature of the latter sin, that the nature of it being far from generally known, it has become to those who are disposed to emigrate a delusion and snare. We wish that the explana tion we are about to give of it may, by the as tistance of our Provincial contemporaries, find its way amongst those classes who are more espe cially interested in perfectly understanding what emigration, on the present principle of the Govern ment, renlly means. We need hardly say, that however loud the cry for emigration to Australia may be in this country just now, it originated at first in Australia itself. The ...

Davies alleging tlmt the uselessncss of such men has induced him to do so. But the (act is plain, that, he finding the voice of the people running so strong against him, he can no longer stop it ; therefore, he now reluctantly gives tip his control and trensurcrship to the inhabitants — who 1 should expect will still continue to support :i Night Watch — Let us bear in mind, that, there has not been a single robbery perpetrated sinco the estab lishment of tho Night Watch, during the hours of their watchfulness — all the depredations having taken place under the vigilance of those over whom Mr. Davics lias 'surveillance.' — 'Facts are stubborn things.'

IRELAND. DARING MURDER IN LETTERKENNY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
SStSXiARTZ). DARING MURDER IN LETTERKENNY. bAMUEL Davis, IliSq., surgeon, was shot dead nt his own door on Friday se'nnight. His house is in the public street, and the spot where the deed of blood was committed is more exposed, and under view from a greater number of points than any oiner m me wuuic iuyvii. tx great variety of conjectures are afloat as to the occasion of the diabolical outrage so unusual in this hitherto peaceable and tranquil locality. The murdered gentleman was a friend to the poor, and very liberal in his politics ; in short, he was extremely popular. He had a small estate in the mountain districts of Glenswilly, worth about £200 per annum. From this property he evicted two fami lies about a fortnight ago, and had made arrange ments to proceed, at the approaching Quarter Sessions, on more ejectment processes. He was a protestant, tall in person, about 46 years of age, and married, but without children. An inquest was held. — Wm. M'Laughlin stated that he was an o...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
THE MTIIURST ADVOOATK. SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1.849. The! rage for California i3 still prevailing in our district, and generally throughout the colony. Scores and hundreds of people are selling off for the purpose of proceeding to the gold region, in the hone of acquiring a lare:e fortune in a short time. This gold fever is not confined to New South 'Wales, but prevails in England, and indeed, all over Europe. Thousands of adventurers are now on their way, in European ships, for the Port of San Francisco. We wish them all success, though we are afraid that many will have cause to rue their departure from their customary occupations, and their native homes. Tt is a remarkable fact, that those countries where gold has been found in abundance, have always been poor. The poverty of such places has not resulted from the sterility of gold regions, nor from the lack of those raw materials out of which labour educes wealth. The true cause of this poverty has been the want of industry on the part...
Poetry. MY COCKATOO. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
Poetry. MY COCKATOO. My pretty little cockatoo, How pleasantly ye prate ; It's all the same, my pet to you, Who's chief or magistrate. Go sing and say through all the town, When passion rules the breast, Your sun of life may soon go down, So rest poor pilgrims, rest. For all may find it in the end, That quietness is best ; &nbsp; And that the happiest fam'ly still, Whose members quarrel least.
Supposed Application by the Bathurst Bench for 350 Convicts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 9 June 1849
Supposed Application by the Bathurst Bench for 350 Convicts. We were astounded through perceiving in the re port of the Superintendent of Convicts, published in a Sydney paper, that the Bathurst Bench had applied for 350 ticket-of-leave holders. A corres dent sends us the following respecting the affair: — To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, June 8, 1849. Sir, — t have observed in the Herald of the 5th June, in the return of ticket-of-leave holders applied for from tho several districts, that it is stated that 350 have been ap plied for by tho Bathurst Bench. I beg to state to you, that there must bo some mistake in the return, otherwise the magistrates must be playing a curious game, as no less than fifteen magistrates resident in the district, signed the anti-Transportation petition, declaring their unwillingness to receive ticket-of-leave holders on any terms. The question then is, what or whom constitutes the Bathurst Bench, if fifteen out of nineteen ate against t...
