LINES ON THE DEATH OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 November 1850

; LINES OS THE DEATH OP SIB BOBBRT PEEL. Cul pudor, et justitiaj eoror Incorrupta fides, nudaquo vorit&a, Quando ullum invenient parem f lTultls ille bonis flebilis occldit I ' Mlcat inter omnes, Velut Inter ignou Luna mlnores.'— Hob. Impromptu, on the lamented death of Sir B. Ptd. Another and a glorious star has set, If aught on earth be worthy of the name— And that the brightest in the galaxy, Which shed its lustre upon Britain's famo. His chief ambition was his country's good, For her renown ho spent his best of years ; Posterity will soon record his worth, Now consecrated by a nation's tears. He fell, the victim of sad accident, In prime of life and vigour of his mind ; The charter of Pree Trade will be his monument — The riohest Legacy bequeath'd to human kind. In rain Britannia mourns her loss — Ages may elapse ere they supply his place ; Long will the nation venerate his name, Bndesr'd to it by piety and every kindred grace. VT.

Colonial Extracts. MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 November 1850

Colonial Extracts. MORETON BAY. ANOTHER MURDER AT WIDE BAY. — We have been favoured with a sight of a letter dated Wide Bay, Oct. 4. The writer (a gentleman worthy of reliance) states that four days before a shepherd of Mr. Gideon Scott's had been murdered by the blacks, and two thousand sheep driven off by them. A party started in pursuit, but had to re- turn for rations. 'Their account," says   the writer, "was miserable — sheep dead or dying in every creek or gully."— Moreton Bay Courier. HOMICIDE ON DARLING DOWNS. — Last Saturday a Chinaman, in the employ of Mr. Whitting, Darling Downs, was killed with a blow of a wool spade, by a white man, with whom he was working in the wool shed. Such is the account that has reached us, and it adds that the white man had not then (last Sunday) been taken into custody, as there was no witness of the blow, but that Dr. Miles, of Drayton, had gone over to make a post mortem examination.— More- ton Bay Courier, Oct. 19.

OUR REPRESENTATIVE AND OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 November 1850

OUR REPRESENTATIVE AND OURSELVES. We feel it a duty we owe to ourselves to reply to an observation made by Mr. Dar vall in his speech to the electors on Friday last, evidently aimed at the Free Press. It has so happened from no fault of our own, that upon two or three occasions we have differed from Mr. Darvall, and we can assure our readers, very conscientiously. Upon the two most important questions of the past session we differed from him, namely — the Police and Transportation questions, and have given our reasons why. In our disagreements with Mr. Darvall we had neither friendship, enmity, nor party purpose to serve; but have candidly, and from a sense of duty, opposed him when we believed him to be wrong. It is a custom with a large section of the political world to approve of all that may be said of a fa vourite from partiality, and disapprove of all the acts of an opponent from prejudice. This is mental slavery of a very dangerous description — it is unworthy the reasoning ....

English News. {Front the Geelong Advertiser.) By th& Gitana, direct from London, we have news to the 17th July, bur latest papers being the Times, Herald, and Adver tiser, of the 18th. Our files, however, are incomplete, the dates deficient being the 16th and 17th. The information we have been able to gain about the Australian Colonies Act, is very meagre; no direct mention of it appealing in any of the Parliamentary re ports. We have before us, however, a report of a meeting of the Colonial Reform Society, held on the 17th July, wherein the measure is spoken of as a thing accom plished, Lord Lytlleton, who opposed it to the last stage, ' hoped the colonists would see through the imperfect measure they had . obtained.' We quote from the Times. He ' could not but wish that the measure had been of a more revocable character.' Mr. Hume' avowed himself better satisfied than the Noble Lord with what had been done for the colonies.' Lord Monteagle, the chairman, said that ' the gr...

Miscellaneous Extracts.   BLACKWOOD ON CARLYLE. — Mr. Carlyle, though he may not be aware of it, is even such a political doctor. He despises De Lolme on the British constitution, and peremptorily forbids his patient to have any thing to do with that exploded system. 'I should like to have,' says the pupil placed under his charge, ' a well-regulated const-i tuted monarchy.' ' Tis a sham !' cries Signor Doctor Thomas Carlyle — ' Are   solemnly constituted impostors the proper kings of men ? Do you think the life of a man is a grimacing dance of apes? To be   led always by the squeak of a paltry fiddle ! Away with it !' The wand is waved, 'and constituted monarchy disappears. 'Well then,' quoth the tyro, ' suppose we have an Established Church and a House of Peers !' ' Avaunt, ye Unveracities— ye Unwisdoms,' shrieks the infuriated graduate.

To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Prest. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 November 1850

To tin Editor of the Bathurst Free Prett. Sir,— It was with extreme pleasure I read a paragraph in your last issue, staving that Captain Hunter had procured a draft of fox hounds with which he intends hunting the Bathurst and Mudgee districts next season. Should the worthy Captain be sufficiently encouraged in his laudable undertaking, it will be the means of creating a great demand for good hunting horses. It is an admitted fact, that the Bathurst and neighbouring districts produce some of the best steeple chase horses in the colony ; and in order to sustain this enviable repuiatian every encourage ment ought to be afforded to the breeders of stock. With this view, I would most respectfully suggest to the gentlemen forming the Bathurst Race Committee, the expediency of making the prize for the Hurdle Race at the forthcoming meeting a stake worth contending for. This could be easily dona by curtailing the amount of the Welter Stakes : for, during the last five years, Heki has invari...

(IBi'fccriitttl Cffnre^pffittf eircc. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. Sir — I perceive in your issue of last Saturday, an- account of a splendid demonstration made in the large and thriving township of Orange, on the occasion of the visit of J. B. Dar vail, Esq., M.C., his friends in that neighbourhood thinking that in Bathurst he did not meet with the respect due to him as the ' renro.sentativo of the -district; and aa a gentleman,' determined to the best of their ability to make the amende honorable by present ing an address and desiring one of their party to ' add a few remarks of his own.' I think the speech made under such circum stances deserves the attentive perusal of the elec tors of Bathurst ; for it is evident the speaker is well versed in ' blarney' and skilled in the manufac ture of soap, but at tho same time sadly given to the crime of 'murdering the Queen's English' and uttering sentences ridiculously absurd. * ?

-JBricrCitffl Cfftrestoffn-ffeiTtt, MINING. To the Editor of The Bathdbst Free Press. Sir, — As you occasionally devote a portion of your paper to mining matters, I crave permission to insert a few remarks relative to the comparative wortli of the Cornish and Australian copper ores, and thus enable your readers to perceive, how much more valuable the mineral veins in this country are than those of Cornwall. By the West Briton newspaper of the 5th July last, the sale of Cornish ores at Camborne, in Cornwall, averaged £4; 16s. per ton ; whilst the Kapunda ores, sold at Swansea, on the 27th June last, realized £24 12s., the Burra Burra, £20 17s. 6'd.,the Australian, £14 9s. Gd., and the South Australian, £18 16s. 1£1. per ton ; consequently, the poorest copper ores from the Australian conti nent proved to be of three times the value of the Cornish ores, whilst the Kapunda brought nearly six times as much. Are not these facts enough to rouse the Austra lians to a proper sense of their d...

Wednksday, July 10. — t We have pleasure in observing both' the quarterly returns of revenue, ? and the monthly returns of the Board of Trade, iust published, telling of gradually increa sing prosperity. The total revenue for the quarter ending July 5th, has been £1 3,005,406 ; whereas, in the corresponding quarter of last year's summer, it was only £12,443,902. The revenue of the year now ending has been £50,414,750, against a revenue last year,; ending in July, of £49,198,883. Thus there is an increase on the quarter of £561,504; and on the past year of £1.215,867. The customs' duties, which, being levied as they are mainly on the comforts and luxuries brought from foreign climes for the: consumption of the English people, afford a test of the general state of the. middle; arid labouring classes, amount to. more by : £204,931 than they did in the quarter ending July, .1849.
