THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 August 1849

TUB LAW. The judges have proNounced a formal decision against the demand of the Attorney- General for immediate judgment upon Mr. Duffy, on the grounds of his not having been able to sustain his demurrer against all the counts of the indict ment laid against mm. — inis decision was arrived at after what is, with facetious technicality, called an argument, had been carried on for days passing in number the memory of a journalist. On each of these days, spread over some weeks, several men in horsehair wigs met together and talked ? and finally one of them announced that Brother Richards had just discovered by extraordi nary diligence of research, or a lucky accident,, which of the : two is not stated, that the whole question at issue had been decided in the year 1845, and that all the breath wasted in talking, about it might have been spared; Few people except those whose misfortunes or crimes have placed them within the power of these men in horsehair, take any interest in the qualit...

"Wreck of the "Sarah Louisa," and Ross of Two Lives. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 August 1849

Wa'cels of tSie ' Sara3i Louisa,' and Eioss of Two Lives. ('From the Melbourne Argus. J On Thursday this fine brig began to drag her an chor, about 1 o'clock p.m. When the second was let go, the vessel continued dragging until 7 a.m. on Friday, when the larboard chain snapped, and the vessel went ashore on the north side of the harbour. The chief officer and seaman took to the foremast. Every endeavour was made to res cue the men, but failed. About eight a.m. the second officer was washed overboard; one of the men seeing him struggling in the water, jumped overboard to endeavour to save him, but was car ried towards the sea. A boat from the shore put oil and saved the man ; the second officer was saved by Mr. Gibney, who rushed in and brought him out of his danger. About two o'clock the fore mast went by the board, and by th*. exertions of the people from the shore, under the direction of AJr. C.

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 August 1849

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 1849. ? ? The Bye Laws of the Butburst Market Places have at length been published by the Market Commissioners, aud a copy of them (the Laws, not the Commissioners) will be found in nnother column. The question— ^shall Bathutst have n Market Place, or vice versa, has long been agitated in the 'town, and various opinions have been formed on the subject. Some persons say that, considering 'ihe limited number of the population, the idea of 'establishing a regular Market Place nearly a quar ter of a mile distant from the outskirts of Bathurst, appears preposterous; and that it would have been much better to have allowed the natural lawa of demand and supply to play their parts for n few years longer unrestricted by the authority of Bye Laws and Commissioners. We must confess that we lean to this opinion. The establishment of re . gular Market Places in Bathurst, when, at the same time, there i3 nothiug to be sold in such places, is very like th...

The Colonization Debate. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 August 1849

'Sh.e Colonization Debate. CFrom the Daily News, Apri'. 17.) Mr. Hawes and Mr. Gladstone may differ in their views of colonial policy, but they are resolved to admit no interlopers in the field of debate. They club their forces to put down Mr; Scott as a poacher in their preserve. Last night, Mr. Scott moved for' a select com-' mittee to enquire into the political' and financial relations between Great Britain and her depen dencies, with a view to reduce the charges on the British Treasury, and to enlarge the functions of the colonial legislatures.' Mr. Hawes, of course, resisted such a motion. The committee might let an awkward light into the penetralia of the Colonial Office, and might propound a definite practicable plan of reform not easy to party. And Mr. Gladstone, Mho has of late been as siduously labouring to build up a character as a colonial reformer, chimed in with Mr. Hawes. Nay, he transcended the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies in his demonstrations of zeal a...

Sir Thomas Mitchell and Captain Sturt. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 August 1849

Sir ?bomas RSitchell and Captain Sturt. - The following curious passage appears in Captain '?Sturt 's new work: — ' During my progress down the Murray River, I had passed the junction of a very considerable stream with it (the Darling), in lat. 8-1*8 and long. 142. Circumstances, however, prevented my examining it to any distance above its point of union with the* main river. Yet, coming as it did, direct from the north, and similar as it was to the Darling in its upper branches, neither had I, nor any of the men with me, and who had accompanied me when I dis covered thti Darling in 1828, the slightest doubts as to its identity. Still the fact might reasonably be disputed by others, more especially as there was abundant space for the formation of another river between the point where I first struck the Darling and this junction. It was, at all events a point well worthy of further investigation. Such evidently was the opinion of Her Majest's Government at the time, for in accordance...

The Bristol Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 August 1849

The Bristol Murder. At the Gloucester assizes, on Tuesday, Ann Tho- mas was tried for the murder of her mistress, Miss Jefferies, at Bristol, by beating her on the head with a stone. The prisoner is a good-looking young-woman, with nothing in her face to indi- cate the criminal tendencies which she had exhi- bited. At the commencement of the trial the prisoner was accommodated with a seat by order of his Lordship, and remained seated throughout the trial, exhibiting no appearance whatever of emotion, except during the delivery of Sergeant Allen's speech in her defence, when she wept in- cessantly. Sergeant Allen did not deny that the death of the deceased had been caused by the act of the prisoner, but urged the supposition that it   was done in the heat of passion, in consequence of provocation, and therefore that the crime amounted to manslaughter only. The jury found the prisoner guilty of murder, accompanied with a recommendation to mercy on the ground of her youth....

The Second Column of the "Times." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 August 1849

Tlie Second Column of the ' '3?imes.' CFroin Punch. J This little Library of Modern Romance — for such the second column of the Times is fairly entitled to be called — varies exceedingly in mystery as well as in interest. On some days there is a com parative plainness in these newspaper novelettes, but at other times there is a wild obscurity, which even our sagacity fails of fathoming. We can comprehend the invitation of A. B. to C. D., or we can understand E. F. being willing to forgive G, II. and pass an Act of Oblivion with reference to everything ; but there are now and then little morsels of the mystic which we cannot attempt to penetrate. What, for instance, can be the mean ing of these extraordinary words in the Times of last Saturday — ' NO DOOIt-MaT TO-NIGHT !' What possible intimation can this convey to any body? If the words had been ' No Scraper,' we might have caught a faint glimpse of some thing or other vaugely shadowing out a possible allusion to somebody in a scrap...
