Original Correspondence. To the Directors of the Ebeneser Mining Company. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 November 1849

(£3' We dfrnot identify ourselves with the opin ions of our Correspondents. HBvisin&l &avves!$aiiif eixce. To the Directors of the Ebenezer Mining Company. Gentlbmen,— On my visiting the works, which aro, or (mould be under your management at Gros venor Farm, to my groat astonishment I found them abandoned, and tho miner's hut evacuated. I inquired from ono of tho neighbours tho cause of tho change, who made mo tho following laconic answer, ' Why, Directors bo broke up.' , As ono interested in your company, I will ask you, wa3 it, or was it not your duty, as elected .Servants of tho said company, and of course respon sible for the management thoreof, to have called a public meeting of tho shareholders, for tho purpose ' of making them acquainted with the state of affairs ? Should the information I have received bo cor rect, there is certainly a mystery in this company which requires explanation.

THE GOVERNOR-PRESIDENT OF HUNGARY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 November 1849

THE GOVERNOR-PRESIDENT OF HUNGARY. (From the Examiner. J . The moat celebrated name among the leaders of the Hungarian war ofindepend 9nce is that of Kossuth. Educated ,as a lawver, he was well calculated to head a movement whose object was the, main tenance of legal and constitutional rights. Persecuted as a journalist for his. defence of some young men accused of high treason, illegally arrested, and condemned to a long imprisonment, he became a martyr, pointed out by the Austrian government itself as a leader of the coming revolution. The Diet of 1S39 interceded so energetically in his' behalf, that the Imperial Ministry thought, it prudent to release him, under the pre text of a general amnesty to all political' offenders. . .. ~ After an imprisonment of some years, he1 re-appeared as the promoter of many plans for the material improvement of his coun try, such as the projected railway to connect the Danube with the port of Fiume on the Adriatic, thus seeking to release and give...

THE BOA CONSTRICTOR. John, undo his .tail.. .There, ladies and gentleman, is the wonderful boy construc tor. So called because he constructs many pleasing images with his serpentine form. The constructor is a long animal, as you will perceive, and is very long-lived. He lives a hundred years or more, if he don't die before-hand. He is of the wormy species , and worms hisself along the ground without legs. - He his capable of climbing the highest trees, which he is foiid of con cealifag hisself in the branches whereof, that he tiiiy spring on the^beriighted traveller, or other1 beast'; whereby to'assatiate his hunger. He mashes his vituails before he eats 'em, and then swallows them head first, for which he is provided with great strength for the pur pose. He is sometimes called a bow con structor, from a ignorant idea that he ties himself into bow- knots, but I am intimately acquainted with the creature, and he never does it. ., I suppose he could do it if he tried, but there would ...

DOING THE BARBER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 November 1849

DOING THE BARBER. An eastern shore man stepped into a bar ber's shop in our city, on Sunday, says the Baltimore Argus, and requested the barber to talce off 12 J cents worth of his hair. The barber trimmed his locks very neatly, and then combed and brushed them in the most particular style* ' Are you done ?' asked the the eastern shore man, as the barber removed the nap kin from his neck. ' Yes sir,' returned the man of razor with a bow. ' Are you certain that you took off eleven pence worth V ' Yes, sir,' returned the barber, ' there's the glass, you can see for yourself.' ' Well,' said the eastern shore man, ' if you think you have eleven pence worth off, I don'tiknow that I have got any use for it, and I haven't got no change ; so you must just kee^- the hair for your trouble.'

OUR CARPET BAG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 November 1849

OUR CARPET BAG. Matrimony. — An old clergyman, dining with Barrington, Bishop of Durham, at his Palace, one day of the assizes, gravely as serted that he had been married almost forty years, and he had never had the slightest difference with his wife. Dr. Paley archly exclaimed, ' Don't. you think, My Lord, it must have been very flat V Ridicule. — If ridicule be applied to any position, as the test of truth, it will then become a question whether such ridicule be just ; and this can only be decided by the application of truth, as the test of ridicule. Johnson. A Poser Settled. — Lady Jekyll, who was fond of puzzling herself and others with such questions as had been common enough a generation before her, in the days of the Athenian Oracle, asked William Whiston, of berhymed name and eccentric memory, one day at her husband's table, to resolve a difficulty which occurred to her in the Mosaic account of the creation.

ADVICE TO UNMARRIED LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 November 1849

ADVICE' TO UNMARRIED LADiES. If you have blue eyes, languish. If black eyes, leer. If you have pretty feet, wear short petti coats. If you are the least doubtful as to that point, let them be rather long. If you have good teeth, don't forget to laugh now and them. If you have bad ones, you must only simper. While, you are young sit with your face Jto the iight. '. When .you are a little advanced, sit with your back to the window. If you. have a bad voice, always speak in a low tone. If it is acknowledged that you have a fine voice, never speak in a high one. If you dance well, dance but seldom. If you dance ill, never dance at all. If you sing well, make no previous excuses, If you sing indifferently, hesitate not a moment when you are asked, for few persons are competent judges of singing, but every one is sensible of a desire to please. If in conversation you think , a person wrong, rather hint of a difference of opin ion that offer a contradiction. ??' :? If you find a person tel...

SIR, — As I deem so wonderful a medicine as Professor Holloway's is, ought to be well known, I take the liberty of reporting a miraculous cure here under my own eye. An old woman, aged 50 years, has for the last two years been quite bed-ridden, having entirely lost the use of her legs from the hip joints; the limbs had become quite hard, like horn (what the natives call ' Soonie.') All feeling quite gone, so much so, that you might cut her, and she was unconscious of pain. When I prescribed Holloway's treat ment and Medicine, her limbs were to all appearance quite dead, and without the slightest feeling. After twelve days perse verance with the Ointment she complained of great pain in the limbs, ' like the prick ing of pins.' I still continued t...

ANXIOUS TO GO. Somebody has furnished us with the fol lowing dialogue which occurred in this town a few days since, between a ship owner and a stranger : — Stransrer. — How much do you ask, Mr. -, for a cabin passage to Califor nia ?

Ship-owner. — Eighty dollars, but I can't take you. Full, fore and aft . Stranger. — Well, can't I go aloft some where ? and suppose I do, 'what will you charge ? Ship-owner — We charge eighty dollars to go anywhere ; but can't carry you aloft. Got to carry provisions there. Stranger. — Its a hard case, isn't it ?

There will doubtless bo many ' pints ' of law dis cussed on the. occasion, tending especially to the benefit of the legal profession. Well, there's an old saying to the effect ' that all trades must live,' and the same thing may perhaps hold good in respect of the professions. .-,-..,.. . .

Sydney and Country, News. MULTUM IN PARVO. Mn. Cowper, M.G., has visited Parramatta for the, purpose of exhibiting, a carefully computed estimate of the expense likely to be incurred in the proposed construction of a railroad between that place and Sydney. His estimate (including it is said every pos sible expense) amounts to £31,036- 14a. 3d., and is pronounced by many competent per sons considerably above the mark. It ap pears also to be in contemplation to open a line from that township to Windsor, and a body of men, styling themselves the local Committee will meet on the subject in the course of next week. — Several persona have been already dealt with under Mr. G.

A SUGGESTION FOR SONG WRITERS [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 10 November 1849

A SUGGESTION FOR SONG WRITERS Songs are becoming desperately and despi cably colloquial, in a milk and water, in sipid, indeed imbecile way. You shall soon have a young lady asking, through four namby-pamby verses — ' Will you love me then as now ?' and a young gentleman an swering, through an equal number of lack a-daisical quatrains, 'Dearest, then I'll love you more.' Now, it is deplorable to see a young fellow of sense and spirit, with a character and calling of his own, mewing and trifling such silly sentimentnlity. We want a different sort of thing altogether. Not that we should rush into the gipsy, bravo smuggling, piratical lawless, boots and-belt-buckle sort of style either. This is as detestable and unreal as the other, and in a business-like, practical country, even more out of place. Why should not songs also come home to men's ' business and bosoms ?' Why should not doctors, lawyers, merchants, and stockbrokers have their appropriate airs, and appropriate words too ? Th...
