Australian Geography. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
Australian GS-eograpliy. This marked ignorance of Australian geography displayed in some of the most largely circulated journals and periodicals of the British empire is not a little surprising, and, in many instances, may he attrihuted to insignificant territorial desig nations, originally adopted with characteristic cerelessness, and retained with consummate bad taste. Many of the Transatlantic States were named with admirahle discernment and classical pro priety; but the vast colonies founded in Austra lasia by colonisers from the same parent state, are striking examples of geographical absurdity. Beginning with the elder colony — New South Wales— what can he more absurd than continuing to call an immense extent of eastern and south eastern territory after a fractional part of a small principality ? Then there is the ' island of Van Diemen's Land' — what a pity that it is not offi; cially as well as conventionally known by the equally proper and much more euphonous appel lation o...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The BATHURST ADVOCATE Liverpool, June 8, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
©I'tfitKrtl (EarrcspcrttUcncc, To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Liverpool, June 8, 1849. Sir, — Having an opportunity of referring to a somewhat voluminous file of ' The Gardiner's chronicle,' edited by Professor Linillcy, which obtains an extensive circulation at Home, I take the opportunity of extracting the following remarks, for the information of your correspondent J — n T — n, in your issue of the 2nd instant, on the subject of the Aphis ranir/era, or American blight. The contributor to the Chronicle, remarks, ' Coal-tar was recommended as a certain remedy in a paper in ' Lou lon's Gauliucrs Magazine,' and without giving the matter i the slightest consideration as to what effect it might have on the circulation of the sap, and the health of the bark. I permitted my gardener to paint his trees with Coal-tar when he considered necessary. My orchard was in a fair bearing stale, having been planted about twelve years ; the consequence was, that some of the trees died, and a...

LINES TO THOSE WHO CAN BEST UNDERSTAND THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
LINES TO THOSE WHO CAN BEST UNDERSTAND THEM. Some years ago, when wo carao hero, The town can tell, the town can tell, You treated us somewhat severe, You know it well, you know it well. Blow follows blow — but let that pass, A time may come, a time may come, Wo yet for every sighed ' Alas !' May pay all home, may pay .ill home. The stomach of the common weal, Requires at times, requires at times, As your's might do of good oat meal, A dish of rhymes, a dish of rhymes. Could I but wield the poet's pen, And play his card, and play his card, I'd soar a song bird now and then, And be your bard, and be your bard. I'd teach the little hills around Your praise to sing, your praise to sing, Till mightier mountains swcll'd the sound, Your fame to ring, your fame to ring. Your tyrannies, 'tis said in print, Proverbial are, proverbial are; And some allege, a heart of flint E'en now you wear, e'en now you wear. They may, perhaps, of such a stone, Have felt the weight, have felt the weight, Sin...
THE BATHURST ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
THE BATHUrlST ADVOCATE, SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 1849. ? ^.» ....... We have been committed to take our trial at the next assizes for publishing a libel on John Davies, chief constable of Bathurst. This man fancies that he is aggrieved, and perceiving damages in the dis tance, will prosecute with all the power which the law permits him to exert. Long before the insertion of the alleged libel he came into our office and threatened that he would prosecute us the very first opportunity, thereby endeavouring to intimi date us, &c. We know that this prosecution has been instituted for a three-fold reason : first, Our paper ia not a police paper, and will not stoop to be under the control of those who have the prin cipal management of police affairs : secondly, Davies fancies that he can get damages, and we, as well as the public, are fully aware of his tender mercies when a prospect of obtaining cash opens before him ; and thirdly, there is another reason in which one, if not more, of ...
The Catastrophe at Glasgow. Glasgow, Sunday [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
°gh.e Gatastroplie at; &lasg--uv. CFrom the Times, February 20 ) Glasgow, Sunday, 'We lament to announce one of the most appalling events which ever took place in the west of Scotland, and which occurred in the Theatre lloyal, Dunlop-strect, last night. About eight o'clock, while the company was concluding the first act of the drama of the Surrender of Calais, the alarm of fire was given from the upper gallery ; and it turned out in reality that a lighted paper (believed to Inve been thrown down by a person after ignitiug his pipe) had come in contact with an escape of gas, and produced a small flame ; but it was so insignificant that it was extinguished by the persons in the vicinity. At first thi're was a slight commotion visible throughout Hie house, and those in the boxes, pit, and lower gallery, kept their scats. Many in the gallery did not know, apparently, whether to treat the alarm of fire as a real of false one. Several per sons from the stage and other parts of the...
OUR CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
otm gs.ub. BY THE SECRETARY'. The reading public are probably not aware that, in this town, there exists a society which rejoices in the modernised appellation of 'Our Club.' This club has not been established for the over throw of Colonial Institutions, nor for the intro duction of republicanism into New South Wales, nor for any political purpose whatever ; but solely with a view of developing character. It consists of a number of gentlemen distinguished for their literary and scientific attainments, and especially for the oddity and whimsicality of their ideas. In order to become eligible for membership in ' Our Club,' it is necessary to prove to the proper officers, that the candidate is a man of eminence in some of the varied departments of frolicsome eccentricity. That indispensable condition being complied with, and the rhino tipped, the fortunate individual is forthwith elected a member of the club, and that too without a single black ball. Our Club, in its present state, con...
Police Office. Tuesday Before the Police Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
Police Office. Tuesday. Before the Police Magistrate. John Byrons was charged with drunkenness, and was fined 10s., or 24 hours imprisonment in the cells. John Frazor was charged with drunkenness, and was fined £1 and Gs. costs, or 21 hours imprisonment. He had had £9 7s. 4d. when ho reached the watch-house, and this money was taken from him by the watch-house keeper. The 'prisoner charged constable Finnerty with taking £12 from him, whereas £9 7s. 4d. was produced in court. It was, however, clearly proved by the testimony of a. disinterested witness who was present at the time the prisoner was searched, and who saw the money counted when it was taken from him, that there were only five notes and seven shillings, one of the notes being £5. It was evident the prisoner did not know what he was doing when brought to the watch-house, in consequence of the vapours of John liarlnycorn. The prisoner was severely reprimanded by the police magistrate, for the false charge he had made. John D...
The Night Watch. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
The Nig-Iit Watcfc. A public meeting of the inhabitants of the totvn of Bathurst, was calleJ on the 9th instant, at Mr. Conroy's, for the purpose of continuing the night watch. There were a great many persons, who are contributors, present. Mr. Peter White, after some reluctance on his part, was called to the chair. He stated, the object of the meeting was to appoint watchmen for the protection of the properties of the inhabitants, and to have them placed under the controul and management of the persons who pay them ; as he thought neither life nor property safe, from the fact that the constab ulary left off doing duty on the town, each night at 12 o'clock, and that a great many persons, con tributors to the night watch fund, are very much disappointed with the way the night watch are conducted at present. It was propeposed by Mr. Donnally and se conded by Mr. Evans, that for the protection of the property of the inhabitants, a night watch be established under the controul and manag...

Education.—What ought it to be? [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
Education. — What oug-Iit it to be 1 A very curious argument is sometimes employed in justification of the learned minutipo to which' nil young men arc doomed, whatever be their pro pensities of future life. What are you to do with a young man up to the age of seventeen ? Just as if there was such a want of difficulties to over come, and of important tastes to inspire, that, from the mere necessity of doing something, and the impossibility of doing anything else, you were driven to the expedient of metre and poetry: — as if a young man within that period might not ac quire the modern languages, modern history, ex perimental philosophy, geography, chronology, and a considerable share of mathematics ;— as if the memory of things was not more agreeable and more profitable than the memory of words. The great objection is, that we are not making the most of human life, when we constitute such an extensive, and such minutie classical erudition, an indispensable article in education. Up to...

Colonial Management. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 16 June 1849
Colonial Management. The true way to promote emigration is to give to each colony free institutions and a good system of disposal of waste lands. Andi in truth the two things nre identical; 'Free institutions for a colony' means leaving the whole business of local government in the hands of the colonists, and the disposal of their waste lands among the rest. This latter point is one which has been forced upon us by experience. At first we were led to adopt Mr. Wakefield's view, that the disposal of the waste lands should be retained by the Home Govern ment. The arguments for such an arrangement are spacious. The waste lands of a colony are the common property of the state' which discovers and settles it. They are to be administered by the Government for the benefit of all who have gone out to the colony, and of all who may hereafter go out. What a private individual acquires is his own to do what he likes with ; but what remains yet in the common stock is as much the property of the...
