OUR CLUB. (Continued from our last. ) [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

OUR. CLUB. BY THE SECRETARY. ( 'Continued from our last.) Messrs. Trope and Flourish then read a pros pectus of a new Dictionary which they have jointly edited and are about to publish. The fol lowing is the specimen page contained in the pros pectus. A New Dictionary of the Engligh Language, for the use of those who read with their candles snuffed, compiled by Messrs. Trope and Flourish Radical Orators. The letter A. As self interest is the No. 1 of social life, bo the letter A is the No. 1 of all alphabets. This letter certainly ranks A 1 both in Lloyd's list and in the list of languages. As it stands at the head — nay forms the very head and front — of ancient and modern linguistry, mankind must have had some sound and powerful reasons for placing it in such a conspicuous position. In the early ages of so ciety — long before Cobden repealed the Corn Laws, and tight corsets came into fashion with the ladies — the expletive or explosive aw ! ha ! ha ! ha ! ah ! and la ! must have a...

THE NUN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

THE NUN. Beside a stream two maidens strayed, Conversing side by side, Gentle they were, and in the bloom Of youth and beauty's pride, lhe maidens seemed of noble race, They both were passing fair, And yet upon the eldest brow, There sat a shade of care. ' Constance' she said, ' and wilt thou go, Alas and leave us all ! Why wilt thou hide thy loveliness, Within the convent wall. ' In the fair morning of thy days, When life is scaice begun, Why leave thy dearest friends to bo A lone secluded nun ? ' Those lovely eyes will then be dim, Those rosy cheeks grow p;ile, Oh ! Constance, wherefore grieve my hrart, Why wilt thou take the veil ? ' Thou who art born of high degree, Who wilt to riches come, So young1, so beautiful, to meet This melancholy doom.' ' Nay, Leonora,' Constance said, ' Nought can my bosom move ; Wraith, beauty, pleasure I forsake, To win a crown above ' Oh 7,'onora blame me not, And think me not unkind, My earthly richps, and my all, To Ciod I have resigned.

SAINT MAUGHOLD. A MANX LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

SAENT BS^UG-SKOriB. A MANX LEGEND. Saint Patjick, the tutelary saint of Ireland, is considered as the honourable instrument who converted the Manks to the faith of Christianity. Immediately after his depar ture, one Maughold, who had been a Captain of Banditti in Ireland, was, as a punishment for his crimes, bound hand and feet, and sent to sea in a small boat, which was driven on shore at the rocky promontory in the Isle of Man, now called Maughold Head. Maughold, being deli vered from his perilous situation, retired into the moun tainous parts of the Island, where, by his austerity and piety, he obtained such esteem and veneration, that after the death of the Bishop, he was appointed his successor. ? ''Tis night, — on Mona's rocky shore, the white-waved ocean foams, And darkling clouds of murky gloom, foretel approaching storms ; The raging winds with furious howl, sweep o'er the mountains height, Obscured are stars and all of earth, to lonely seamen's sight.

Shipwrecks and Melancholy loss of Life [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

Shipwrecks and SMEelancholy loss of Life CFrom the Moreton Bay Courier, Mav 26. ) We have a painful duty to perform in this day's issue, in recording a series of casualties on the coast during the late gales, by which it is estimated that about twenty-two of our fellow creatures have perished. For the details of these distressing calamities wo are chiefly indebted to Mr. H, Tcbbutt, one of the owners of tho Helen, schooner, and to Captain Ellis, late of tho Louisa, which vessel, the pro perty of Messrs. Inder and Tebbutt, was lately cast ashore near tho mouth of tho Brunswick River, as reported in this journal at the time. Tho Helen, on her last trip to Sydney encountered strong south-westerly gales, which, assisted by a south-easterly current, drove her out to sea, and about a hundred miles to the southward of Port Jackson. It was with the greatest difficulty that she was enabled to run from Jervis's Bay to Port Stephens for refuge. On her last de parture from Sydney, it was the ch...

Newly Discovered Tract of Land. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

Newly discovered Tract of Xiand. In the early days of the colony, when Macquarie harbour was occupied as a penal settlement, and bushranging was prevalent, one of the unfortunate inmates effectively eluded for a long time the vigi lence of his pursuers. Old Davey Richardson, upon re-appearing in the civilized districts, re ported the existence in the interior of an extensive tract of available land, the beauty and fertility of which he described in glowing terms. There is no doubt of his correctness. A tract of land, containing two millions of acres, is about to be opened to the enterprise of the colonists. It runs from the south-western portion of Lilncoln County, near Lake St. Clair, to the north-western portion of Franklin County, and round Frenchmen's Cap. For some time past, Messrs. Thomson, Dixon, and others have been running round the borders of Lake St. Clair. The success attending their operations induce others to advance in the same direction ; and the ' pioneers of civili...

The Great Protest Meeting against Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

'Sh.e ©real; Softest KSeeting- against transportation. On Monday, tho 11th instant, a monstor meeting was held at the Circular Quay to protest against the iniquity,,. ty- ranny, and degradation to which this colony has been sub jected, by the unprincipled autocrat of Downing-street, in transforming a free country into a land of slaves, and converting a moral community into the receptacle of Britain's worst, vilest, and trebly convicted felons. Tho weather was unfavourable. Rain descended in torrents ; and, notwithstanding so great a disadvantage, long before noon tho merchant closed his counting-house, the trades men relinquished his occupation, tho mechanic laid by his tools, and, animated with feelings of indignation, for the minister, with loyalty to their Sovereign, with respect for the law, and with a determination to stand boldly forward to declare their love of freedom, thousands of colonists wended their way, regardless of personal comfort on such an inclement day, to be pre...

IRELAND. DISAFFECTION IN THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

IRSL&HD. (From the Times, March 5.J DISAFFECTION IN THE NORTH. There is no use mincing the matter. Ulster has become infected with downright Mitchelism, and the tone of the press and the platform insensibly brings one hack to the palmy days when, without let or hindrance, people coolly talked of ' smash ing the castle gates, and forwarding Lord Claren don, per early mail, to England, as having no right of settlement in this ' our kingdom of Tre land.' That this is no overcoloured picture may be gathered from the perusal of a batch of northern journals which reached us this day. Indeed, so many are the evidences in support of the sketch, that it would be easy to fill a broadsheet with the sayings of high-mettled ratepayers and the tirades of journalists, wrought to the highest pitch of excitement by the threatened infliction of the Ministerial sixpenny impost. Nor are threats nnd dennnciations confined to the public platform or the public press. They have found vent as well a...

Dreadful accident on the Caledonian Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

dreadful accident cm the Caledonian Railway. A dreadful necident occurred on the Caledonian Railway on Saturday night last, by which five lives have been lost. The mail train left Carlisle for the north at 9, 16 p.m., and proceeded without interruption until it passed the Bockliffe station, about four miles north of Carlisle, when suddenly the engine and tender were dissevered from the train, the latter getting off the rails. Three first and second class carriages, the travelling post office, and three horse-boxes, were all precipitated down the embankment, 15 feet in height. One second-class carriage was turned on its side, and the post-office van ran right through it, turning it topsy-turvey, and shivering it to atoms. The greatest consternation prevailed amongst the pas sengers, who were rather more numerous than usual. The night being moonlight, the guard, engine driver, stoker, and those who had made a safe exit from the carriages, immediately set to work to explore the extent ...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

THE BATHTTKST ADVOCATE, SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1849. The colonists of New South Wales are deter mined to obtain responsible government. The late meetings which have been held in Sydney in reference to the revival of transported felons, the tone of the colonial press, and the enthusiastic manner in which the idea of responsible govern ment is cherished and applauded by all classes, ?combinedly prove that the Australian colonies are ripe for freedom j and that, while they desire to have the full management of their own affairs, :they, at the same time, cherish the principles of loyalty and obedience to the British Government. In the infantile condition of colonial commu nities it may be necessary to hold the reins of ?authority with a tight and bold hand. Under ?such p.ircnmstannps, a rlfispntin. form of govern ment is usually considered to be the most bene ficial and a democratic form the least so. But when a community has advanced in intelligence, in wealth, and in numbers, then, that k...
