Country News. KING'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

Country News. KING'S PLAINS. . During the last few days we have had a most delightful rain in this neighbourhood, which has greatly improved the appearance of the crops, and caused the grass to spring1 wonderfully. There is now every prospect of an abundant harvest, as well as plenty of feed for stock of all descriptions. On Tuesday last we had some sport in the shape of races, and notwithstanding the wet, there was a goodly muster on the course. The first race for a saddle given by Mr. Doyle was won by M'Crae's Steeltrap, after four well contested heats, beating Pioneer and Miss Edger. . The second race for the entrance money of the first was won by Silvertail beating Old Jorrocks, Puzeler, Bachelor, and Jumper. For this there were also four heats. The first was a most splendid race between Silvortai) and the Old Horse. They went from the jump to gether, Silver leading by a head, and came in ex actly in tho same position, neither seeming to loss or gain an inch of ground during the...

British Extracts. THE ARCTIC EXPEDITIONS EXTRAORDINARY DISCLOSURES OF A LIVERPOOL CLAIRVOYANTE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

Srltlfth Sstrsote. ? THE AKCTIC EXPEDITION. EXTRAORDINARY DISCLOSURES OF A'LIVBRPOOL CLAIRVOYANTE. Under this head the Mercury gives a long statement of the inexplicable developements of clairvoyant power, in a domestic servant, and proceeds as follows : — ' Every one knows that the greatest aDxiety is now felt as to the fate of Sir John Franklin and the brave men who accompanied him on the arctic expedition, of which nothing has now been heard for three or four years. It may, therefore, be admitted that any prediction or statement with respect to the fate of the expedition, which shall hereafter be proved to have been correct will be significant of the exist ence of a faculty of which humanity was not heretofore supposed to Le the possessor. Two clairvoyants have now asserted that they have seen that expedition. In Oc tober last, a female at Bolton, having been put into the clairvoyant state, gave a vivid description of the arctic regions, and pointed out on a map the then position...

LACHLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

LACHLAN. We have been visited by some light showers of rain during last week, which have done a great deal of good in the vicinity of the river, by refresh ing the grass which was already beginning to fade under the excessive heat which we had the week preceding.' The lambing is all over, which we must pronounce to be a good one, many of the sheep-holders realising 90 and 95 per cent. The shearing has commenced, and in most places the clip will be as good as has been for many years. We regret to mention the deplorable condition of the back stations, especially in the Bland coun try. After the traveller gets beyond eight or ten miles from tho banks of the river on his outward journey, there is not a blade of grass to be seen foe I some hundreds of miles. I Through the excessive drought for the last I eighteen months there has not been sufficient rain I to run the creeks, the consequence is that numbers I of the squatters are obliged to draw water, some I by means of horses and carts,...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Strange Discovery of Murder. — -Some' short lime since a brutal murder was com mitted near Launceston. A woman, wife to a poor man in that neighbourhood, was found dead, her skull beaten in with an axe, I and under circumstances which fixed a strong suspicion on her husband, who was accordingly committed for the crime. Last week a man appeared at Runnymede, the property of Asken Morrison, Esq., at the Brushy Plains. He said he wanted work, and endeavoured to make interest with one of the persons employed on the farm to get it. Mr. Connell the superintendent, told him his services were not required, upon which he became insolent, and /was'1 ordered off. He refused to go, and Mr. Connell had to remove him by force. After a strug gle the man was put off, and went to Inn stead's, where he inquired for a constable, as was supposed at the time to complain of Mr. Connell. But on his arrival he be* came incoherent ; told the constable he knew what the woman was saying to ...

Colonial Extracts. MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

Colonial Extracts. MORETON BAY. Wide Bat. — A letter has been received by a gentleman in Brisbane from Wide Bay, dated September 10th, in which the writer states that the country was in a fearful con dition for want of rain, and that the water was dried up. ' Indeed,' says the writer, 'the stations are as black as a Sydney hat, the grass having all been burnt up by the natives.' Several of the squatters are ap prehensive that unless rain should come they would not have more than 30 per cent, of lambs.— Moreton Bay Free Press, Oct. 8. The Lambing. — We are informed by a gentleman who has recently been on the Downs that the lambing is going on better than was anticipated, although the increase will certaiply be less in this than in any previous year. — Ibid. The Weather and Pasture. — We learn from a gentleman who arrived in town from Brisbane on Thursday evening, that there was a flood in Canoe Creek, at Cow per's Plains. The want of rain had been severely felt on some of the station...

Sydney and Country News. Death b? Lightning.— We regret to have to report the death by lightning of Mrs. Mary Head, a respectable woman, who resided at Surry-street, Darlinghurst. From the evidence of Mr. Patrick Deery, at an inquest held yesterday on the body, we learn the following particulars :- — Between two and three o'clock on Tuesday afternoon he was informed that Mary Head, the sub ject of the inquest, was dead ; be, with his wife, and two other parties, ran to the house, and found both the front and back door fastened; they then looked in at the front window and saw the unfortunate deceased lying on the floor ; they then broke open the door and entered the house; deceasd was not then dead, but died almost imme diately ; she did not speak when they went in ; on examination they found that the skin of her chest was peeled off in several places ; the lining of a bonnet which was lying beside the body, and which she was in the habit of wearing in wet weather, was burned complet...

Original Correspondent MINING. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

dBrtftutal Cazvcipaittienct, MINING. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. Sir, — Knowing the interest you take in the wel fare of this colony, and observing the readiness which you show on all occasions to publish any thing in connection with its resources, I am in duced to make a few observations on the above subiect. To those only who have been accustomed to see the general good a well wrought mine is capable of doing in its immediate neighbourhood, will it lie evident how much this portion of the colony is interested in the progress of the above, and similar undertakings. It has been our lot to witness in other localities the general good we allude to, and therefore we are the more fully convinced that every man hereabouts should aid, as far as his ability will enable him, in bringing to light the hidden wealth of the country. A few days since we visited Mr. Icely's mine, and our experience enables us to say, that its posi tion and appearance promise, not only riches to its ...

WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

WELLINGTON. . Oct. 19, 1850. — The sovere drought suffered throughout this district for the last nine months has been partially relieved by a few fine showers, which have produced a delightful change in the aspect of the country. Already the rich flats along the rivers assume their wonted spring appearance, but the young feed is short and scanty, and much rain will be required to give a supply of grass for the ensuing season. We have had no spring up to the end of Sep tember, at which time a few light showers produced a change in the wintry appearance of the ground, but being followed by light frosts and dry scorch ing weather1, the hope of a late spring was again disappointed. On the night of the 11th instant, we had a few fine showers, and again on the 12th, 15th, and 16th several hours* ram, but as yet we have had no rain to give a supply of water in the back creeks. However, the changeable state of the weather promises a showery season, and we anxiously hope that the. coming sum...

' Her Majesty it appears has been pleased to exercise the power vested in her by the existing constitution of disallowing Mr. Nichols', act for the suppression of vagrancy.

British Extracts. DEATH OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

British axtraoto. DEATH OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. fFrom the ,., London Times, July &.J It is impossible to exaggerate the feel ings of profound emotion with v/hich the mournful intelligence of the death of Sir Robert Peel was received yesterday in every circle of the metropolis. At first, a feeling of incredulity was created by the startling intelligence ; bnt when this had been removed beyond all doubt, the next very natural desire was for more ample information than the suddenness of the occurrence had hitherto admitted of. In order to satisfy this very natural anxiety, it will, perhaps, suffice if we embody the leading incidents connected with the cala mity in the subjoined narrative, the ma terials for which have been gathered from sources of unquestionable authenticity : — Sir Robert Peel had called at Bucking ham Palace and entered his name in her Majesty's visiting book only a few minntes 'before^the accident. Proceeding up Con stitution- hill, he had arrived nearly oppo si...

ATTACK UPON HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

ATTACK UPON' HER MAJESTY THE : : QUEEN. ('From the Times, June 28. J It is our painful duty to announce that a cowardly attack was yesterday made upon her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen by a man who, until within the last four years, held a commission in her Majesty's service. About twenty minutes after six o'clock last evening, her Majesty, accompanied by three of the royal children, and Viscountess Jocelyn, Lady- in- Waiting, left Cambridge House. Piccadilly, where her Majesty had been calling to enquire after the health of her illustrious uncle. A crowd had assem bled without the court yard gates to witness her Majesty's departure, and as the royal carriage passed out of the gates, a person respectably dressed, and about six feet two inches hij*h, advanced two or- three paces, and with a small black cane, which he held in his hand, struck a sharp blow at the' Queen. The blow took effect upon the upper part of her Majesty's forehead, and upon her bon net, which being 'of a light ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

PORT PHILLIP.   COLD-BLOODED MURDER.—News reached     town by yesterday's mail of an atrocious   and diabolical murder being committed on   Friday last by an old man, named M'Al-   ister, on the person of a youth named I Crook. The deed was perpetrated at the   Bunyip Inn, on the Wannon. It appears   that the murderer seized his victim by the   head and stabbed him behind the ear, there   by cutting the jugular vein, which caused   instant death. It would appear that some   misunderstanding had taken place between   the parties on the previous evening, but   that neither M'Alister nor Crook had par-   taken of any spirits on the morning when the evil deed was done, the family being all   asleep. M'Alister attempted to effect his   escape, but was captured, and is no...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 October 1850

Miscellaneous Extracts. Foreign Intelligence.- — In the present turmoil of our domestic concerns, and in the nearer and greater interests which they excite in every class, the larger portion of the public have so little attention to afford to foreign concerns that it is almost a waste of time to advert to them at any length. In France the question of increasing the salary of the President is still undecided. — In Prussia the King is sadly embarrassed to reconcile the army and the people, and to allay the public discontent at the favour which he is compelled to exhibit towards his officers and soldiers. The Grand Duke of Baden cannot afford to pay the Prussian soldiers who occupy his states, whilst the Prussians ask, with some appearance of justice, how long the Prussian people are to pay the cost of an armed police for foreign states. — In Russia, the chief political business appears to be the obvious progress of an offensive and defensive confederacy between Russia and Austria.

' In order to enable you to lay before the Council the real facts of the case with re gard to the convicts in the colony, and their distribution, I forward you a return, which I shall be obliged to you to make public, of the condition and prospects of the convict population here. Yqu will see by this that the number of those who will receive their freedom in the course of 1851 does not ex ceed 1644; that the probable number of tickets-of-leave to be issued will not exceed 2000 or 3000, and these will have to con duct themselves well for periods of between one and four years before they can be re commended for eonditional pardons. No one receives a ticket-of-leave unless he has served half or the whole period of his sen tence, except by special reference home for some meritorious conduct; and of these re ferences there are but very few in the course of the year.
