* 'SaiiAtfBft ENGLISH NEWS. fFro'm the Sydney Morning Herald.) - English news to the 8th July had- been received at Hobart Town by the Uoyal Saxon. From a summary contained in the Melbourne Daily News^ we take the follow ing extracts : — ' The Australian Colonies Bill was read a third time and passed in the House of Lords'' oh the ' 5th July, but' has yet to go to the Commons for the confirmation of the Franchise clause. There was a probability that the measure, as amended, would be immediately sent down to the Commons for approval, and that the Royal assent would ?hi given at an early date. ... «' We : also learti that on the 4th July, sli'prd/'Jbhn- -Russell arose amid dead' silence, and'every member sat uncovered while he -proposed— in tears and much affected— that . an- offer, should be made on the part of the Grown' and the Cabinet to hold a public funeral' for Sir Robert Peel, as upon the ^decease' of Pitl and Grrattan.

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

British Extracts. A CURE FOR THE GOUT . — An odd acci- dent happened to Southey's grand-uncle, during one of his severe fits, at a time when no persuasions could have induced him to put his feet to the ground, or to believe it   possible that he could walk. He was sitting     with his legs up, in the full costume of that respectable and orthodox disease, when the   ceiling being somewhat old, part of it gave way, and down came a fine nest of rats, old and young together, plump upon him. He had what is called an antipathy to these creatures, and, forgetting the gout in the horror which their visitation excited, sprung   from his easy chair, and fairly -ran down stairs.                   HORRIBLE AFFAIR AT THE AGRA JAIL.—     The Lahore Chronicle details a very serious affray in t...

Country News. BOWEN'S FELL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 2 November 1850

Country News. BOWEN'S FELL. On Saturday, the 26th October, an inquest was held at Mr. Benning's public-house, by H. Atkins, Esq., coroner, on the body of Sandy McDonald, aged about 20 years, who died very suddenly the day before from suffusion of blood in the cavity of the chest. Verdict— died by the visitation of God. It appeared from the evidence that deceased had been a strong healthy young man until Thursday morning the 24th instant, when he complained of indisposition, probably caused by too free an in- dulgence in that bane of the country colonial ale, of which he had been partaking very frequently since the Tuesday preceding. He spent the greater part of Thursday at home in his bed ; but arose on Friday morning apparently in good health and spirits and went to his work as usual.     He ate heartily at dinner-time, and immediately after repaired to the bush with a bullock dray, for the purpose of hauling posts and rails. He was accompanied by a lad ca...

Local Intelligence. BATHURST QUARTER SESSIONS. SHEEP STEALING.   Martin Colleen, admitted to bail by tbe Mudgee   Bench, was indicted for stealing 25 wethers, the property of W. H. Suttor, Esq., M.C., on the 11th ult. The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was defended by Mr. Macintosh.     Charles Foster deposed that he was a shepherd in the service of Mr. Suttor, and lived with his father and mother, who had charge of a station, known as Campbell's Creek. On the 11th of last month a younger brother took his sheep and in the course of the day dropped 261. Perceiving that he was sheep short, he returned home and gave information, when himself, father and brother scoured the run in all directions, but could find no sheep alive or dead. He visited the prisoner's   station about nine o'clock of the following morn- ing, and found him drafting sheep. He stated his business, and was informed by the prisoner that he had picked ...

Sydney and GSonstry EJewa. Chinese Labour ; on, Catching a Tartar. — Some few days since, seven ce lestials in the employ of Gr. Burgess, Esq., J. P., of Newton- Boyd, became somewhat refractory, when Mr. B. entered the hut for the purpose of expostulating with them, and to try to get them quietly to their work, but immediately upon Mr. B. enter ing the. hut two of them seized upon a spade each, and in fact all showed fight. Mr. B., nothing daunted, gallantly stood his ground, when one of the miscreants made a blow at his head with a spade, which must have proved fatal had not that gentleman with much adroitness evaded the intended blow. Mr. B. was now determined to show these seven re latives of the sun and moon the utter absurdity of their endeavouring to play at fisticuffs with John Bull. Mr. Burgess, after evading the blow intended for his head, gave the rascal a good left-handed ' astonisher,' which made him bite the dust. Mr. B. then went in right and left to the utter discomf...

To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 November 1850

To the Editor of The Bathurst Free Pkess. Sir, — Some time ago a long controversy took place in the Herald newspaper, concerning the ap plicability of Artesian boring to this country. On one part it. was stated, that there was a probability that a small portion only of the water which fell on the surface of the earth was absorbed, owing to the rapidity of evaporation. From this position, at the lime, I bogged to differ. Since vk.iiiug- the mineral districts, I imagine that I have met with an in stance which will have a tendency to strengthen the opinion I then advanced. The case is this. A certain piece of land was rented to an individual near the lagoon, Camp bell's River, and, amongst other conditions, it was stipulated that the tenant should sink a well for the convenience of the place;. After proceeding to the depth of ubout twenty feet, ho came to a rock, and at harvest -was setting- in at- the time, h« did not prosecute the work auy further.- This. tenant Hay ing left the farm...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 November 1850

POUT PHILLIP. Escapk op Eight Prisoners from the Lock-up Mouse! Geelong. — A great com motion was created yesterday afternoon by a repoit that the whole of the prisoners sent down from Melbourne to take their trial at the Criminal Sessions, this day, had broken out and made their escape by overpowering the watchhouse-keeper, the turnkey, and others left in charge. To ascertain the cor rect detail of the circumstance, we went to the lock-up, and ascertained the following particulars, which may be relied on as a perfectly correct narrative, which we took down as Btated to us by Robert Burke, the watchhouse keeper. At half-past five yes terday afternoon, he loosened the chain from the door of the cell in which the pri soners were confined to take out the bucket, when the prisoners rushed at the door, and one of them named Healy, seized Burke by the neck, and attempted to throttle him, and struck him a .severe blow with a piece of batten, supposed to have been wrenched from the noor.

Sir. — I know not whether it may come within the design of your excellent paper to insert com munications of i the kind following ; but I have been struck with the almost entire absence of in tention on the part of most, if not all, of your cor respondents (talented though some of them may be) to draw from the youthful part of your readers anything approaching to intellectual effort. No doubt I am guilty with the rest for having delayed the trial so long ; but shall now, 'with your leave, endeavour to draw the attention of some o'f your youthful intelligent correspondents. Should I suc ceed, i shall take occasion, now and then, to offer similar examples to the following, varying them, it may be, so as to bear on commerce and on natural philosophy as well as on the principles of science. It is possible, I apprehend, that the effort may lead by degrees to some more formal and effective plan for the development of...

SUMMERHILL MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 November 1850

SUMMER HILL MINE. The time haa now arrived when the im-~ portant question— is the Bathurst country rich ia minerals or not, must be answered. From a recent trip to the Summerhill mine, and from such opportunities of investiga tion as a limited stay would allow, to our minds the question is satisfactorily an swered. We believe that the country about and beyond Bathurst abouuds in mineral ; for there we perceive not only magnificent indications, but find large quantities of the sulphuret of copper, 'not in isolated masses, but in connection with a perfect lode, and that lode apparently undisturbed by trap peun currents. One point struck us most forcibly, and that was the regularity of the dip of all the rocks in the neighbourhood of the mine. Thus much we think may be said with safety, that this mine will be the source of future wealth to the proprietors, provided they exercise ordinary energy and skill in working it, and provided also that a. sufficiency of capital, be embarked to ca...
