Murder at Moreton Bay. A shocking murder has been perpetrated here under the following circumstances: — two men, named Molloy and Leonard, left South Brisbane on Sunday morning, the 16th instant, intending to proceed to Ipswich ; Leonard with the inten- tion of meeting his employer, and Molloy to seek work : in the evening, Molloy returned alone, and it being remarked as suspicious, he was taken into custody, was examined, and discharged. He then took his passage to Ipswich by water. Mr.   Ure, Leonard's employer arrived in Brisbane on Monday a short while after Molloy was liberated, and stated his suspicions, as Leonard had money, and did not arrive in Ipswich on Sunday evening according to appointment. Molloy's story being that Leonard proceeded to Ipswich, a constable followed the steamer and brought back Molloy, since which time Leonard's body has been found by the constables, with the assistance of deceased's dog, who led them to the spot.

THE BACHELOR'S DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

THE BACHELOR'S DILEMMA. BY ALAIUC A. WATIS. ' Bt all the bright saints in the Missal of Love, They are both so intensely, bewitchingly fair, That, let Folly look solemn, and Wisdom reprove, I can't make up my mind which to choose of the pair. ' There is Fanny, whose eye is as blue and as bright As the depths of Spring skies in their noontide array : Whose every fair feature is gleaming in light, Like the ripple of waves on a sunshiny day : ' Whose form, like the willow, so slender and lithe, Has a thousand wild motions of lightness and grace j Whose heart, as a bird's, ever buoyant and blithe, Is the home of the sweetness that breathes from her face. ' There is Helen, moro stately of gesture and mien, Whose beauty a world of dark ringlets enshroud ; With a black regal eyo, and the step of a queen, And a brow, like the moon breaking bright from a cloud. ' With a bosom, whose chords are so tenderly strung, That a word, nay, a look, oft will waken its sighs; With a face, like the heart...

POETICAL CRUMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

POETICAX. CRUMBS. TrVjiT take such.urnbrage at our crumbs ! Would they some pepper'd crust tryP A crust might scarify their gums, ? Should we prepare the pastry. Their prayers, we trust, have all been heard, And genuine their repentance, But doubt not, in a certain word, Some met an old acquaintance. Should Grindhard's ghost e'er have the luck, To meet with Doctor Johnson's ; The two may have ' a crow-to pluck,' Old Sam's will ' stand no nonsense.' 'What ! interdict one single word Of our all conquering language .' ! Let no man boast a Brjton's beard, Who'd thus his mother tongue gauge ! We'll have no words hand-cuflf'd, enchain'd, And flogg'd for being mention'd . Men are, we know, like wood, cross-grain'd, But words are well intention'd. Words wander on from shore to shore, And spread such facts before us, As cause an atolantic roar, And south pacific chorus. He's well equipp'd who's got a fund, Of dry sarcastic humour, And can afford, if fear'd, or shunn'd, To spare some ticklish...

Cousin Sally Dillard. SCENE—A COURT OF JUSTICE IN NORTH CAROLINA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

Cousin Sallv Sillard. Scene — A Court of Justice in North Caro lina. A b eadless disciple of Themis arises and thus addresses the Court ?. — ' May it please your wor ship, and you, gentlemen of the jury, since it has been my fortune (good or bad I will not say) to exercise mvself in leo-al disauisitiou. it has never before befallen me to be obliged to prosecute so direful, marked, and malicious an assualt — a more violent, wilful, dangerous assault and battery, and finally, a more diabolical breach of the peace it has seldom been your duty to pass judgment upon, one shocking to benevolent feelings, as that which took place over at Captain Rice's in this county. But you will hear from the witnessess.' The witnesses being sworn, two or three were examined, and deposed — one said that he had heard the noise, but did not see the fight — another, that he saw the row, but didn't know who struck first — and a third, that he was very drunk, and couldn't say much about the scrimmage.

DORCHESTER. The Rev. A. Huxtable's Farm Reforms. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

BORCKCBSTEH. The Rev. A. SZustable's Farm Reforms. At the recent dinner of the Sturm inster Cattle show, the Rev. Mr. Huxtable said : — Now, I'll tell you what my manure cost, and herein I rather differed from the judges when they talked with me on the hill. They said I ought to charge the value of the farm made dung. This I never do, upon the simple principle that in valuing my crops I neither put a price on my straw nor manures, therefore I don't value manure. Straw is as it were dead stock — ' dead !' I should rather say it is the great supporter of our farms. But the artificial manure I used was composed of 2 cwt. of dissolved coprolites in half their weight of sulphuric acid, and seven put loads of clung mixed with ashes. Now I used the word ' cop rolites.1 ' What, says some farmer, what does that mean? I never heard the term before?' Nor did I until about, two years ago, and then I was obliged to go a Greek lexion, to find out what it meant. Coprolite means a dung stone ; that...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 14, 1849. THE GREAT LIBEL !!! [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

THE MTHU11ST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 14, 1849. S5E& ©EISA'S? kSSlSSa ! ! ! We attended at the Police Office on Wednesday 'last, July the 11th, expecting1 that the case Davies w. Isaacs would come on for hearing, but we had our journey for nought. The hearing was again postponed until Friday the 20th of July, at which time, as a matter of course, there will be no more of 'the Law's delay,' &c. We have been informed that Davies has had the impertinence to subpoena the Rev. T. Sharpe, clergyman of the established Church; the Rev. K. D. Smytho, Presbyterian minister; and the Rev. B. Hurst, Wesleyan mi nister, /to give evidence as to the character of the language employed by the writer of the poetry, €ntitled ' Poetical Crumbs.' We do think that the mixing up of these gentle men with such an nffair is a sample of that modest assurance for which the chief constable of Bathurst (John Davies) is notoriously remark able. We think that he might have procured other witnesses e...

Para Grass. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

S?ara ©a'ass. A new species of grass, called Para Grass, ant] which has received from both Humbolilt and Kuntli, the scicnlilic appellation ( iinicum Jumen torum, is about to be introduced into the Cape Colony, and also in Australia. This grass Avas introduced from South America into the Islands of Curacoa, Bonaire, and Aruba, as well as into Barbadoes and other places on the Coast of the Americas. The plant itself is said to be of African origin, and has often been introduced into Britain from the Isle of France and Martinique. It forms a soft, succulent, nutritious herbage, and unlike nearly all the grasses, and especially the various species of Panicum, the Para Grass flou rishes during the most severe droughts. Dr. Lindley, the celebrated botanist, has advised Earl Grey to obtain and forward the seeds of this grass to Australia.

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 14 July 1849

S USE. AS?®. The legal procrastinations in Ireland on behalf of Smith O'Brien, Duffy, and others, were so pertinaciously main tained, that it was difficult to calculate on the issue. Min isters hail not only obtained a Bill to enable them to con tinue the suspension of the Habeas Corpus Act in Ireland, but power to grant as much as £50,000 in aid of the funds of twenty Unions in the West of Ireland, which had be come utterly involved in consequence of the insufficiency of the Poor-law rates available to them. The amount of destitution was steadily on the increase, as the scanty pro duce of the last harvest was being gradually consumed. Dublin was comparatively brisk, but in several of the pro vinces the amount of distress was appalling. The Water ford Chronicle of February 4, contains the following start ling announcement : — 'Yesterday, the William Venn sailed from our port, bound to Liverpool, bearing with her upwards of 500 of the most wretched class of emigrants wo ever beheld ;...
