QUESTION AND ANSWER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

QUESTION AND ANSWER. Why quarrel with despotic power, It hurts our social peace, man?   What ! hand all independence o'er To our own paid policeman ! When all shall know their proper place, Nor step beyond their station, We'll then from law and libels cease, And be a happy nation.

Wellington. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

'Wellington. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. The weather for the last week has been dry and warm, in tho day time, with sharp frosts at night ; previous to last Monday week we had a few showers for a day or two, bnt none since. ----- We had three inquests in the beginning of the week. One on the body of a man named Moran, who died on the 8th instant, at Rice's station, belonging to the Rev. Mr. Watson. One at a station belonging to Mr. Kerr, called the Company's Station, on the body of a man named Seagrovc, who died suddenly. The other on the body of a man whose name I have not heard, who died at the Rev. Mr. Watson's, I believe, on his way to the hos pital. Tho verdicts in all the cases were died from natural causes. ----- There were two cases before tho Police Court yesterday. One for obstructing the constables in the execu tion of their duty, but as it appeared from the defence that the defendants only- remonstrated with tho constables, and the obstruction complained or, namely, one ...

EXEMPLARY PUNISHMENT IN HIGH PLACES OR A TERROR TO EVIL DOERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

EXEMPLARY PUNISHMENT IN HIGH PLACES; OR, A TERROR TO EVIL DOERS. We'll give the rogue a reprimand, 'Twill help to gull the public ; Then warmly shake him by the hand, In patience we're so iob-like ; What, though censorious people sneer, And have their tittle-tattle ; Such watchmen here, when thieves appear, May spring their golden rattle. He's honest, let them say, and smile, Who'd mind insinuations P The man's as free of guilt and guile, As some in higher stations. With such as lie we long have done, With such we long may do yet ; Here honest men are little known, They're far between, and few yet.

Emigration and Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 23 June 1849

Emigration and Transportation. In the House of Commons, on the 16th of February — Mr. F. Scott wished to know if it was true that a gentleman had been sent from the Emigra tion Office to Dorsetshire, to provide passages to the colonies for nearly 1,000 persons desirous of emigrating at what cost it was proposed to effect this, and whether the Colonial Office was prepared to do the same in other counties where there existed a desire to emigrate on the part of the population.

California.— Latest intelligence. The gold fever besets the press as well as the public. All the newspaper columns glitter with ' Gold,' ' Gold,' ' Gold.'

Robbery of tbe Singleton BXail by Bushrangers. On Sunday, the 17th instant, the mail-coach from Single ton to Mailland was stopped by two armed bushrangers, and robbed to a very large amount, the only passengers on it at the time being- Mr. Loxton, of Murrurundi, and Mrs. Kerrigan, of Maitland. A short time before sundown the mail had reached Mr. Harper's gate, about two miles from Lochinvar, when two men sprung from behind a large fallen tree, and ordered the driver to stop, each at the same time presenting a double-barrelled carbine, cocked. The driver pulled up, and the larger of the two men ordered him to throw out the mail-bags. Tlii3 order was also obeyed, the carbines of the bushrangers being within a few feet of the driver and Mr. Loxton, and one pointed at each. The bush rangers now ordered the driver to move on a step or two,, the smaller man accompanying him as a guard, with his piece presented. The other bushranger then cut open the mailbags, and selected therefrom a gre...

Robbery of the Wellington Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 30 June 1849

Bobbery of the Wellington mail. The robbery of her Majesty's Mails has become so common an occurrence as to excite little wonderment among the colonists of New South Wales. We are therefore not sur prised at the recent robbery of the^Wollington Mail, for to eoh a mail has now become almost a weekly occurrence, nad a sort of fushionable exploit. Tho Wellington Mail was stopped on Thursday last, about 2 o'clock, at a place distant two miles from Guyong, rind 19 or 20 miles from Bathurst. Two men armed with fowling pieces, and having their faces covered with crape, ordered the driver to stand, at tbo same time presenting their pieces and using those threats which robbers usually employ on such occasions. Tlie driver was very unwilling to accede, and made a movoment as if going to drive away, but the robbers, levelling their pieces, threatened to firo, and of course compelled the man to submit. The robbers then ordered tho mailman to throw out tho bags, which he re fused to do, assuring...

Application for Convicts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 30 June 1849

Application for Convicts. CFrom the Atlas, June 19.) A return of the number of applications for con victs, together with the names of the convicts was voted for by the Legislative Council, some short time since. In compliance with the same the- Bathurst Bench of Magistrates was stated to have applied for three hundred and fifty of the ticket of-leave holders then daily expected by the con vict vessels. From a letter in the Bathurst Advo cate we learn that the Bathurst Bench consists of nineteen magistrates, fifteen of whom, resident in the district, have signed the petition against the revhal of transportation, and of the remaining four, one is known to be averse to the revival. Such inconsistent circumstances are of course cal culated to excite curiosity; and the inquiry naturally suggests itself, have some of the magis trates who signed the anti-transportation petition, practically falsified their professions, or has a fic titious application been palmed off upon the au thorities ...
