yfSxiiraotft!! '' - BURNING OF A STEAM-BOAT.— AW- - SUL DESTRUCTION OF LIFE. The American mail brings the full ac-J count of' that dreadful accident which we mentioned in last week's summary— -the destruction of the steamer Griffith, in Lake Erie, on the 17th of June. Dr. William . Maronchy, of Wachita, Louisiana, in the following letter describes the heart-rending catastrophe. The steamer Griffith was ' about three miles from shore .when the fire was discovered. She was immediately headed for the land, and ran until she grounded on a bar, when ubout twenty rods from the shore, between which and the shore there was deep water. The scene of ' the disaster was about twenty miles from Cleveland, nearly off Chagrin : — ' Cleveland, Ohio State, June 17. ' About seven o'clock on Sunday even ing, I got on board the Griffith, at Erie. There were on board a great number of deck or steerage passengers, emigrants, said to be 256.

Miscellaneous Extracts. DEMANDS OF THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 November 1850

Miscellaneous Extracts, DEMANDS OF THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. (From the London Examiner.) The Jutland and Sleswick pirates who fourteen centuries ago performed the great achievement of conquering and colonising Britain, have since, in the persons of their descendants, achieved the still greater feat of colonisine and settling while they are in a fair way of conquering and occupying a whole continent to the destruction or ab sorption of every other race. The Anglo Saxon population of America in fact con stitutes at th'i9 moment a people more nu merous and mighty than any European nation of the period when their emigration commenced. The very same people is now engaged in achieving another great, al though not equally great enterprise — the colonization of another continent — Aus- tralia ; and the Australian colonies, within sixty years of their .first foundation, are already calling loudly for self and respon sible government, which is by a century, sooner than the American colonies ma...

STEAM FROM LIVERPOOL TO THE MEDITERRANEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 November 1850

Yery shortly we shall have some fifteen Screw .steamers plying between Liverpool and various ports in the Mediterranean. This is a novel feature in the trade. Two years ago there was not one. This new -phase of the traffic to that interesting portion of the world, the cradle : of human kind, and the theatre of all that is great in classic story, owes its existence to'the spirited enterprise of four companies, or firms. Of thefirst of these, the 'Anglo-; Italian Company,' Messrs! M'Keau/M'Larty; and Co., of Water-street, are' the represent tatives ; and their neat vessels, the Livorno and the Levantine, ply to Italy and Sicily, the. ports visited being Gibralter, Genoa,: 'Leghorn, Messina, and Palermo. One; leaves Liverpool regularly on the fifteenth, of each month. Another vessel, the Genoa, is building for them at Dumbarton, and, ?will be ready _ to assume her berth on the .? 15th of the ensuing month. -The Livoruo, of which the~ne\v vessel. wil be consort, is a splendid craft, and...

INTRODUCTION OF THE ALPACA INTO NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 November 1850

INTRODUCTION OF THE ALPACA INTO NEW SOUTH WALES. From an advertisement it to-day'a issue, it will be seen that a preliminary meeting was held at the Cafe Parisian on the 7th inst., with the object of considering- the steps ne cessary to be taken for the introduction of the Alpaca or Peruvian sheep into New oouth Wales. A committee of seven gen tlemen was appointed, with power to add to their number, and circulars have been for warded to those parties in the country who are most likely to join such an enterprise, one of which has reached this office. From the information given in the paper on the Alpaca, as to the constitutional formation, habits, and peculiarities of the animal, its adaptability to the climate, vegetation, and other geographical circumstances of' this colony, appears to be placed beyond a doubt. The Alpaca ' can masticate vegetable substances too hard and tough for sheep and cattle,' ' is enabled to subsist with little or no water,' the moisture from tbe vegetables ...

Select Poetry. STANZAS,             WRITTEN ON THE DEATH OF AN IRISH EMIGRANT GIRL AT SEA. (From the Australian Era.)   Weep for the dead ! let the mourning wail,   Break soft o'er the sun-lit wave ;   Let the sighs ye waft on the passing gale   Fall light on her billowy grave. Weep for the dead ! who hath passed from earth. Like the bloom that the young flower wears,   Like the fairy smile of an infant's mirth, Ere it saddens into tears. She died not in her own fair land—   In her childhood's happy home—   Where the cheering voice and friendly hand   To soothe and comfort come.   She faded not among the flowers With whose sweet growth she grew,     In that fair spring of life's young hours Her joyous girlhood knew. She lies not in the quiet tomb,   In ...
