No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

IF the debate on Mr. Oakes' motion " that an address be presented to His Excellency the Governor, praying that His Excellency would be pleased to place on the Estimates, for the year 1850, a sum not exceeding £1000, to be applied towards commencing the works required for supplying pure water to the inhabitants of the town and district of Parramatta"-had merely involved the question as to how far it was necessary that such a sum should be placed on the esti mates, it would have elicited no comments from us: it would have been a local ques tion, interesting to the inhabitants of Parra matta, and others possessing property in that town alone. The debate tooka turn which made the question of public impor tance,-the Colonial Secretary would argue, that as the financial ari-angements of the government had been made, " he did not see how it was possible to place a sum of £1000 on the estimates for the purpose, without serious inconvenience." If there were any cogency in this argument, the ...

IMPROVED MEANS OF COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

IMP1ROVED MEANS OF COMMUNICATION. [From tlhe South Australian, June 20.] " When it is considered what an important item the carriage of coal or mineral ore forms, as com pared with its bulk or value, it is obviously of great importance to adopt the most rigid economy in the means of its transit. It appears that the carriage of the mineral ores in South Australia, by means of cattle, on bad roads, forms a very large drawback of a very serious amount; now, as the surface of the country to the various mineral districts is repre sented to be generally level, over marshy or low land, it must be peculiarly favourable for the con struction of timber trackroads-by which means, I apprehend, the produce of the several mines might be conveyed at from one sixti to one-eigth of the present cost, thus saving front five to six hundred per cent. " Telford and Sir Henry Parnel, in their report upon turnpike roads, many years ago, stated that if a good track was made on the side of a road, with the s...

POSTAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

POSTAL REFORM. T-E New Postage Bill, about which there has been so much speculation for the past twelve months, has, at last, been presented to the House; whether it will satisfy the country remains to be seen, but judging from the spirit of liberalism which has lately been evinced on more occasions than one, we prognosticate that unless the measure is considerably altered in Committee and some of its very objectionable clauses altogether expunged, the people of New South Wales will raise a loud condemnatory voice against it and crush it before it becomes the law of the land. The main propositions of. the Bill are as follows :-By it all the: previous acts rela ting to the postage of letters are repealed; and power is given to the Governor and the Executive Council to fix the future rates of postage, provided suchrates are not:higher than those fixed in the act. That all let ters shall be charged by weight, half an ounce to pay one postage; and one ounce two rates, and two additional...

Country News. YASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

Country News. (FROMI OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) "ASS. EDUCATION.-A School-house has lately been erected on the Yass River, twelve miles distant from the township. It is highly creditable to the inha. bitants of that locality to observe, that they united together to put up the building, and have been so fortunate as to obtain a master of first-rate scholastic attainments. Already a Sunday School is in course of formation. Messrs. Amb Alchin, Wm. Arm strong, Jos. Edgerton, Thus. Hillier, Owen Hillev, Den. Maguire, Cha. M'Veter and Robert Wiggins, are honorably recorded as the eight individuals who joined in the laudable undertaking; and these have twenty-three of their families now attending the School. The master delivered a very pleasing ad. dress, on the occasion of opening the Sunday School. Yass, July 23rd., 1849. MtANEROO.

FOUR MONTHS AMONGST THE GOLDFINDERS [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

FOUR MONTHS AMONGST. THE GOLDFINDERS rFrom a Review of Dr. TYnwaier BRooKs' Worlck. ?HERE is a gentleman who knows all. about it ! a live Englishman who has set foot in the diggins, has had his hand in the wash ings, has scratched for the dust till his back ached, has picked up lumps as big as your fist, without any labour at all, has made his fortune like a " stag," and lost it like a donkey; and, in fact, gone through a regular Californian experience in less than ibltime at all. Our medical friend's exlieriebce is a perfect febrifuge. We strongly iecoitimend it to all the agitated curates, lawyers'"clerks, bankers' ditto, who are! firmly resolved to throw up civilization and their hundlred a year next quarter-day, to buy with their poor savings a spade and a cradle, and set up in another hemisphere upon their own account, as dealers in bullion, wholesale and for exportation. The Doctor was not long, as the title of his volume indicates, in Cali fornia, but quite long enough to be ...

THE POPE INVOKING FOREIGN ARMED INTERVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

THE POPE E, INVOKIING FOREIGN A- ARMED INTERVENTION. [From the Weekly Despatch March 25, 1849.] Two years ago, when all our contemporaries were bespattering the " liberal and excellent Pope Pius the Ninth" with their praises, we warned our readers not to be led astray into a premature enthusiasm by that semblance of an enlightened mind which his Holiness at first displayed. We know that a mole hill was exaggerated into a mountain; and we estimated the primal concessions made by the new Pope at what they were worth. It must also be remembered that the conces sion of very little was easily made to look like a great deal in such a country as Italy then was, and in such a state as Rome for centuries had been: but had the initiative measures of the Pope been fairly weighed, in comparison with the wants and interests of the people, they would have sunk down into the most despicable insignificancy. Pope Pius was incapable of granting large, compre hensive, and radical reforms; even were hi...

TRAGEDY IN LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

TRAGEDY IN LIVERPOOL. About 12 o'clock on Wednesday a boy, named William Bradshaw, was passing the house of Captain Hinrichson, who is in the employ of Messrs. James Aikin and Son, and master of the ship Duncan, at present at Calcutta, when he heard a deep moaning, often repeated, and in consequence gave notice to the police, before whose arrival however, some persons who had forced an entrance, found three persons lying on the floor, weltering in their blood-their moans, at the time, being of the most pitiable de scription. Life not being extinct, they were conveyed to the Southern Hospital. :The house was then searched, and in the back cellar was found the body of a child, lying on the floor, in a pool of blood, with its throat cut, and being quite dead. The three bodies found in the front parlour were those of Mrs. Hinrichson, her eldest daughter, of about seven or eight years of age, and her servant woman. They were all dreadfully beaten about the head and body. On the forehead ...

To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Smi,-Allow me through the medium of your widely circulated and deservedly popular Journal, to enquire, whether a Clerk of the Petty Sessions is supposed to confine himself entirely to the duties of his office ? or, whether an individual, having the luck to hold the several tolerably lucrative appoint ments of C. P. S., Registrar of Court of Requests, Commissioner of Supreme Court and Deputy Post master, can by any manner of means, properly per form the duties expected of him by the public in general, when his mind is perpetually occupied by the desire of increasing his easily earned lucre, by turning pence into pounds, with measuring out yards of tape and calico, and weighing out sundry superior samples of sandy sugar in the shape of lollipops, to suit the various tastes of his highly res pectable, intellectual and juvenile customers? In a few words then, so as not to encroach too long on your valuable time, let me ask, is it consistent with ...

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." SIR,--I beg of you to accept my cordial thanks for the publication of my letter in your issue of the 80th June. It would have been highly gratifying to your feelings as an honest and independent Journalist, if you coult have witnessed the effect the " Mull Man" prodtuced amongst the self-con stituted " lords of the soil :" serious and sedate tho' you be, in consequence of your sedentary ha bits, the windy gasconading of those whom the shoe pinched would have distended your sides with laughter. Who or what is the " Mull Man ?" where does he live ? what is he? has he a " local habita tion or a name ?" were the questions asked. And echo answered, who or what indeed ? If he were anybody or one of us, says the " Cautabian," I should write him down as I did the " opposition," I should bind him to keep the peace, I should swear I was in bodily fear of him, I should, in fact I think I should, whip him with my dearly prized leather continuations.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

To the Editor of the e" Goulburn Herald." Sxn.-Iu a late number of the Herald I noticed a communication to a correspondent, designating himself " An intended Subscriber;" your courtesy extended so far, as to answer him. Being a Sub scriber, may I be permitted the privilege to seek in formation on the following point. In this locality there are a number of small settlers residing, who not long since paid rental for their lands to the Crown. On notice appearing that land would not be sold in thirty acres, one and all applied to purchase and the government went so far as to direct the Surveyor to mneasure off farms conformably with the notice. When on a sudden an intimation was received that fifty acres are to be the minimum quantity. Then renewed applications were made for the fifty, butno answers have been given. The settlers are all tilling the ground, but are apprehensive as to their security for reaping the crop. Will you be good enough in your next number to give us a little info...

Original Poetry. ENIGMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 4 August 1849

-0 ENIGIMA. My first, has been for ages known, Where learning's lamp has shed its rays; The soldier loves it, and the bard, Has in his numbers sung its praise. It bids the warrior think upon The deeds that won for him a name, And oft within the maiden's breast, It fans to life, love's hidden flame. But if my second, from my first You take, then all its power is fled, It tells no more, of love, or war, 'Tis silent, as the sleeping dead. Amid the crowd of busy life, Where fashion's power is oft displayed, The dearest gift of Heaven to man, In my whole, I've seen arrayed. CLARENCE LINDEN.

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. A Vision.-The following story is related in a German journal:-" Doctor Westphal, a clergyman of Brunswick, died on the 20th of February. Many persons intimate with the deceased allege that, for several years past, he looked forward to the 20th February, 1847, as the day of his death. This su perstitious presentiment he accounted for as fol lows : - He declared that, whilst he was officiating as the pastor of a secluded country village, he was aroused one night by a knocking at his door. On arising from his, bed, and looking out of his cham ber window, he perceived a man with alantern in his hand. Supposing that some sick or dying per son required his spiritual aid, he hastily dressed himself and opened the door. To his questions the man replied only by signs, indicating his wish that Doctor Westphal should follow him. The Doctor did so; and to his astonishment, was conducted through the churchyard and to the front of the church door. On the door he saw distin...
