GREENACRE OUTDONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
GREENACRE OUTDONE. UNDER this title we have given particulars. which have been very meagre, from the French papers, concerning the body of a wo man found floating on the Seine, the limbs having been severed and corded to the trunk. We translate the following details from La Democrltic Pacifique:-The wo man's name was Hluet; she has had three children, one of whom, a girl of 13, survives and lives at Auvergne. This woman's hus band, from whom she had been separated many years, came to Paris a short time back, and found his place occupied by a young gardener who live with the woman Huet, as her husband. The true husband seemed in no wise scandalised at this arrangement, and his successor without any irritation having been manifested by any party, of fered to the newly-found husband the resti tution of his wife. The offer was accepted, and Huet was installed into his wife's domi cile, addressing no reproach either to her or her gallant. A few days after Huet sought out the young garden...
SYDNEY MARKETS.—FRIDAY, JULY 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS.-F?DAY, J??ULY 0. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, July 7.) The principal sales of the week show a consider able decline on former quotations. Sugar. and teas have been submitted at low rates, the result of forced sales, at a time when retailers were fully stocked, and trade dull. We cannot look for any improvement for some weeks, but are satisfied that both have seen their lowest. Recent advices from Manila inform us of one vessel only having left, and none to follow, and in China the season was about closing, without a prospect of much more coming forward for some time. To the other ports of Aus. tralasia, shipments had been very limited. BRANDY.-Stocks continue to be steadily re duced. CIGARS.-Ex Kinnear, came to a very bare market, and have been placed at favourable rates. COFFEE.a-We notice no alterations, quotations being 44d. to 41d. CunnANT--Stocks are being much reduced from second hands they are offered at 6d. InoN-An advance in the Home market will doubtles...

The trusses are strengthened by having vertical tie-pieces (on e...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
IRELAND. The state of affairs in Ireland was dread ful. It is said that unless some aid whether under the authority of a rate or a loan-be speedily given to the country, the wretched population of the distressed unions will be subjected to frightful priva tions and sufferings. The provincial jour nals teem with reports of the description of the most revolting nature, in reference to the existing destitution, while so little hope of the future remains among the better class of farmers that they are literally flying in crowds from our shores. Certainly it would be difficult to conceive a condition more desperate. The landlords bankrupt, the farmers abandoning the land, and the labourers not only suffering from want and destitution, but actually dying in hundreds of famine. A proposal had been set on foot for the purpose of raising a subscription to defray the expenses of the defence of Mr. Gavan Duffy, which however had been abandoned at the request of that gentleman. On the 2nd March...

THE PUNJAUB. TERMINATION OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
THE PUNJAUB. TERMIINATION OF TIIE WAR. QN the 21st February a glorious victory was won by the Britsh army, under Lord Gough, 'over the Seikh insurgents, under Rajah Shere Singh, followed by the total discomfi t?ure of the Seikhs, who fled, leaving behind them their camp, baggage, and equipments, and nearly the whole of the artillery. About the 6th an attempt was made by the Seikhs to outflank us, they continuing to protect themselves in all their movements by excel lent entrenchments. They had begun very seriously to incommode us by inter rupting our communications from the rear, when all at once they abandoned their en trenchments, and the rumour ran that they had crossed the Jhelum and fled into the Doab beyond. One day of mystery and wonderment was spent, when the next brought the astounding intelligence that the insurgents had moved their whole army past us, and now occupied the town of Goojrat, 17 miles in our rear. The Com mander-in-chief now prepared' to abandon his entrenchm...
COOMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
COOMA. THZ weather keeps up very cold, and frequently bleak and boisterous, and of such stubborn aridity as mocks the exertions of the husbandman. The plough that should ere now have done its work in its goodly old way, remains an useless implement in the farm yard or before the cottager's door, the caloulous condition of the ground, consigning it to lamentable inactivity. If Providence withhold from us much longer the pluvious bounties of Heaven, all prospects of a crop for this year, will it is to be dreaded, be blighted. The catarrh still continues its work of destruction among the sheep of this district without intermis .eion. The influenza has destroyed its thousands, the catarrh is levelling its tens of thousands.

A BALLAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
A BALLAD. Her brow is decked with jewels, Bright flowers are in her hair, And a wreath of snowy pearls, Is'roimnd a neck, as fair; But tho' she wears the bridal robe, No smile is in her eye, And her heart, once so happy, Now wakes but to a sigh. For, oh ! her thoughts are wandering, Back, back, to by~gone years; When sorrow was to her unknown, Her cheek unstained by tears: When first her faith was plighted, To one whom she loves yet, That pledge, tho' now another's She never can forget. But proud wealth deigns to wed her, A heart content to share, That has for him no feeling, That knows for him no care. Affection's vows once brolken Who can their truth restore, Love's early blossoms blighted, Their bloom returns no more. CLARENCE LINDEN.
Original Poetry. MY CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 14 July 1849
MY CHOICE. [FROM THE PRENCH.] -0 I saw a fair and gentle maid, Her cheek was soft, her eye was bright, And round her mouth, a sweet smile played, Which told her heart, was gay, and light; Her silken tresses wore the jet, Which paints the raven's glossy plume; While o'er her form, scarce had yet, Been shed the pride of woman's bloom. Herlips were like the coral bed, Her skin the white of spotless snow, While o'er her cheek in blushes spread The tint which marks the damask rose; And 'neath a fair and lily breast, There beat a heart, untouched by care, Oh I happy he whose head might rest, In sweet repose embosom'd there. And nature, in her faultless feet, Excels the fairest, art could trace, So light, so perfect, they seemed meet, Some Hebe form alone to grace; A graceful ancle, round, and small, A charm lent, words cannot tell, The eyes that on those dear feet fall, And fixed enchained, by some soft spell. Ah! is it strange, I should adore, A creature of such artless grace, Or that my...
