PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

PORT PHILLIP. Shsep Washing. — In almost every direc tion you find the flockmasters either pre paring or actively engaged in washing their sheep ; and from the very great attention paid to that process, no wonder the Port Phillip wool has the preference in the British market. Upon the station of John Aitkin, Esq., is to be observed a splendid preparation for the purpose, aided by steam power of four horses, with branch pipes conveyed underneath a large vat, fifteen feet long by eight wide, and six deep, and half-filled with water, which is heated up to 100 or 110 degrees, into which is infused a solution of soap (about four bars), when the sheep (about sixteen at a time) are ushered upon a lever slip, and instantly plunged into the water, where they are are rolled about for nearly seven minutes, when they are dragged upon a stage, and thence thrown in^o another vat of clearer water, at abont 64 degrees heat, when the sheep, with a man at each extremity, are held under the spouts, tu...

NEW ZEALAND. DEATH OF NEW ZEALAND CHIEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

NEW ZEALAND. DEATH OF NEW ZEALAND CHIEFS; CFrom the Maori Messenger, August 29.) Death, of late, has been committing sad havoc with the native race. Within. one short month, four names of no inconsider able note have been blotted from the book of life. Foremost of the group passed Pomare, of the Bay of .Islands, a chief;; of some rank and celebrity. Then Waharpa; the son of the great Waharoa, head of ; the Ngate Haua tribe.

TWO-HANDED DICK THE STOCKMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

TWO-HANDED DICK THE STOCK , ------- . 'MAN. ('From DicKens' Household Words. J On returning I found supper smoking on the table, and we made a regular '* Bush' meal. The Stockman then told my adven ture, and, when they had exchanged all the news, I had little difficulty in getting the hutkeeperto the point I wanted ; the great difficulty lay in preventing man and wife from telling the same story at the same time. However, by judicious management I was able to gather the following account of 'Two-handed Dick's Fight and Ride.' ' When first I: met Dick he was second stockman. to Mr. Ronalds, and 1 took a jhepherd's place there ; it was my second place in this country, for you see I' left the old country in a bad year for the weaving trade, and was one of the first batch of free emigrants that came out, the rest were chiefly Irish. I found shepherding suit me very well, and my Missis was hutkeeper. Well, Dick and I got very thick ; I used to write his letters for him, and read in an ev...

ARRIVAL OF SIR ROBERT PEEL'S REMAINS AT TAMWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

ARRIVAL OF, SIR RtikEB^WJEfs REMAINS AT TAMWtfRTH™ (Home News.) Tatnworth, Saturday evening. Juiy 6th, —It would be difficult to give an idea of the gloom' which pervades this place and- its neighbourhood. Ever y. one speaks' and feels as if he had lost by the. death of Sir Robert Peel a personal. friend. The intelligence of his demise created a profound sensation in Tamworth, but the feeling of sorrow at the sad event has, if possible, greatly deepened since the arrival of his remains. It was sought to conceal from the inhabitants the time when the body would arrive at the sta tion, in order that there might be no mani festation of public feeling on the occasion. With this object in view it was arranged by the friends of the deceased baronet in Lon don that the remains should not reach Tam worth till the hour of midnight. The fact, however, got whispered about in the course of yesterday that the coffin containing Vis body would arrive about twelve at night, when many hundreds of th...

SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

SYDNEY MARKETS. (Sydney Morning Herald, Oct. 25.) Wheat. — Owing doubtless to the state of the roads from the late heavy rains, the receipt from the country this week has been next to nothing. We omitted last week to mention a fact of, some importance, that several loads had been received from the Goulburn district, the quality of which was fully equal to any imported, and realised the maximum price. The prices now range from 4s. to 4s. 6d. according to quality. Other Ghain.— Barley, 2s. 6d. ; oats, 3s. Od. ; maize, 3s. 3d. per bushel. Flour. — The millers have made no alteration -in the price of flour, and quote £11 for fine, and £10 for seconds, per ton. Bran 8d. to 9d. Biscuit. — No. 1 (cabin), 17s. ; and No 2 (ship) 13s. per cwt. Potatoes. — Imported, £4 10s. to £5 ; colonial, £3 per ton.

Colonial Extracts. MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

Colonial Extracts. MORETON BAY. Petitions on the Transportation Ques tion. — Our local contemporary complains of the antitransportationists having been guilty of deception and trickery in forward ing the petition adopted at;the public meet ing last year to the Legislative Council instead of the Queen ; and it is further objected that many persons who were not employers of labour signed the petition. The latter statement may be true, and was never 'denied ; and, with regard to the first whatever were the motives (unknown to us) which induced those who held the petition to detain it, the circumstance cannot be any injustice to individuals who, having signed it, may — from pecuniary or other causes — have '?' changed their opinions ; ' because if the petition had been seut at once to Eng land, as it ought to have been, the names of such individuals would still have re mained on it. As to ' disgraceful tactics,' with which the antitransportationists are charged, the less said upon that ...

Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

Colonial News. AUSTRALASIAN SMELTING COMPANY.— From a report submitted by the directors of the Australasian Smelting Company to the. shareholders at the general meeting held on the 18th instant (a copy of which report is before us), ^it appears that, after obtaining a twenty-one years' lease of the coal and ironstone on Schouten Island, subject to a royalty of 2d. per ton, the directors caused shafts to be sunk in five places on the island, and several levels to be driven, before coal' was found of a quality and in a situation suitable to the views of the company. A seam, three feet in thickness, and of good quality, has at. length been discovered near to the northern shore, and a wharf and tram-road are in progress, which, when completed, will enable the company to shont their coal on board a vessel drawing 16 feet of water. The directors further report that calls have been paid on 948 shares taken in Hobart Town, but not on the one thousand shares reserved for Bale in Adelaide, an...

Original Correspondent. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

(©cEsriKftl -&acve$$ait$zTiut To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. Sir,-— Those active and vigilant gentle men called the night watch, have been taking such pains lately in preventing sign boards and market tablets from bei ig palled down, that I think we ought to begin to enquire how they are paid for their ar dous duties. Since this meritorious force has been established, there has never been a word as to how they are to be paid. Per haps the wage9 of these poor fellows are in arrearji and their innate modesty will not allow them to complain publicly. Now to prevent all mistakes, I think an euquiry ought to be made as to how their accounts (stand. I have heard several ill-natured people remark that the night watch was all in my eye and Elizabeth Martin— that they were a couple of humbugs, and of no use whatever. But this I deny, as I myself have seen them take great trouble in watch ing publican's lamps to see that they did not go out too early. Their duties have been...

Select Poetry. THE MILLINER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

Select Poetry.   THE MILLINER.. Make her work harder, she is but a milliner, How can she complain that hard work is killing her ? A girl seventeen, and in a consumption ! Some law should be made to punish presumption. Make her work harder ; her mother, poor creature,   ls paralytic in each limb and feature : In such a condition, she should be willing To work day and night to obtain but a shilling. Make her work harder ; she dwells in a kitchen, And people who live by their hemming and stitching, Must keep on working for breakfast and dinner, Or go without clothes, and get thinner and thinner. Harder they made her work, harder than ever, Across her path then came a practised deceiver,   One young and wealthy, who smiling upon her, First gained her affections, and then her dishonour ! Of course he forsook her ; a creature so tender, Who in this wide world would care to defend her ! Down with her—down with her ! lower and lower, In a week's time h...

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." THE REPRIEVE OF GLEESON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PRAEVALEBIT."   THE REPRIEVE OF GLEESON. Contrary to universal expectation, intel- ligence arrived from official quarters of the reprieve of William Gleeson, who was found guilty of the wilful murder of Tho- mas Tracey by a jury of his countrymen, after a most patient and painful investiga- tion, and condemned to death by his Honor the Chief Justice as the mouth-piece of that law which asks from the shedder of human blood the forfeit of his own life. We stop not here to question the wisdom of such a provision for the safety of human life, nor to argue the policy or humanity of the subject with that amiable and philan- thropic class of men — the abolitionists, who deny the right of any law or human institu- tion, to deprive a fellow-creature of exist- ence under any circumstances. It is suffi- cient for us to know that it is the law, and that we are bound by it. Its very existence is a proof that ...

About twenty five years ago the emancipation of Greece called forth all the ardour of a crusade. Poets died for her, orators harrangued for her, the city subscri bed a loan for her, and at last, the spark having caught the admiralty and the throne, Sir Edward Codrington demolished the Turkish fleet, and Greece was detached from the Ottoman empire by means which brought the Russian armies in the following years to.
