SYDNEY MARKETS.—FRIDAY, AUGUST 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS.-F- IDAY, AUGUST S. EXTENSIVE sales to the trade have been effected during the last few days. Country buyers have also come forward and purchased freely: their stocks having evidently run low, they were anxious to re plenish at present cheap rates.-Tea has been much run upon, and hysonskin to the extent of 5000 chests been taken; and as a large quantity has since been resold, a further demand, and con siderably increased prices, must be looked for: the quantity of hysonskin now in the market, laid down under 50s., is trifling, and a very large portion of present stock must have cost importers 70s. Should vessels from China keep out, and we cannot ascor tain that any are expected, we have every prospect of seeing tea advance 10s. per chest during the next two months.--Sugar has been much enquired for, and several lots taken at advanced rates. During the ensuing week we anticipate a con tinuance of briskness in this market; parties now purchasing may do so with confiden...
Commercial Intelligence. GOULBURN MARKET—FRIDAY, AUG. 7, 1849. FLOUR AT THE MILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
Commercial Intelligence. GOULBURN MAIRKET-FsRIAY, AUG. 7, 1849. FLOUR AT THU MILL. First quality ................. per ton £ 11 Seconds ...................... ,, 10 Ration... ....... ............ " 9 THERE has been little wheat brought into town this week. Buyers are still keeping back for the reduction in the price of this grain, which must in evitably take place owing to the rain which has fallen during the past week, and the consequent improved prospects of the coming crop. BUTTER is very scarce, and the demand is urgent for a supply. There is no fresh in the market, and the salt is of the most inferior description. A load would fetch an excellent price. FAT CATTLE AND SHEEP are difficult to be met with. Bullocks, for the butchers, £3 a head there are no sheep fit to kill. Our prospects for the next two months in the way ef fat meat are very gloomy.
PROSPECTS OF THE YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
PROSPECTS OF THE YEAR. It may be anticipated, in the current year, that trade will undergo some improve ment. The stocks of all manufactured pro duce are now low, and as there must be a demand for, at least, ordinary supplies, there will be a greater employment of in dustry than has of late been experienced. But this must not be mistaken for the re turn of permanent prosperity ; it will be no more than a spasmodic effort to escape from absolute prostration. For it is evident that prices must either be low or high; if the former, then wages and profits must be cor respondently low, in which case no substan tial benefit can possibly accrue either to the employers or the employed. If they should temporarily rise to such a level as would place the working classes in a tolerable con dition of comfort, gold would be instantly exported, because gold would then be chea per as a commodity than our manufactured goods, and the foreigner will onlybuy in the cheapest market. Hence it is a mathem...
THREATENED ASSASINATION OF THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
THREATENED ASSASINATION OF THE QUEEN. At Windsor, on Monday, John Wardle, was charged before the Mayor with having sent threat. ening letters toher Majesty and other persons. It appeared that the prisoner who is about 23 years old, of short stature, and rather idiotic appear ance, has been employed in the collieries of Lord Dartmouth at West Bromwich, near Birmingham, whence he dated his first communication to her Majesty, dated January 18, 1848. In this letter he stated that, unless he and his family obtained their rights, her Majesty should die by his hands; that, if he was wanted, he might be found by applying to Lord Dartmouth, or at his residence, Argat-lane. West Bromwich ; or he would attend to any appoint ment. This letter was sent down to the Stafford shire police, when the prisoner was apprehended and taken before the magistrates, charged with writing threatening letters to her Majesty. The prisoner explained that the reason of his doing so was to obtain £10,000 left to hi...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
CALIFORNIA. (From the Alta California, May 10.) SACRAMENTO CITY, APRIL 22, 1849.--Friend "Atla:"-After a few months' sojourn in them, 1 have just returned from the " diggings," a " wiser" if not a " sadder" man. I have " seen the Ele phant" and am now returning to the regions of civi lization with a trustful hope that greed of grain will never tempt me again to endure hardships and dangers of which none but a gold-digger can form any idea. 1 left the Middle Fork about ten days since, hav ing been driven off by the rise of the water which has been some ten feet within the last four weeks, and which has completely destroyed all prospects of successful digging for the next three months. It is an entirely erroneous idea that this immense swell of the river will cease in a few weeks. It is a fact verified by the testimony of that ubiquitous person. age, the oldest inhabitant, that more snow has fallen in the mountain region this year than in any pre vious one within recollection. So long...

For Lachlan M'Kinncn, Esq4 40; the Duke of Wellington, 3; majority for Mr. M`'Kinnon, 37.

MANEROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
2AANEROO. RAVAGES OF TIHE EPIDEMICO.- This district, hitherto proverbially healthy, is now pregnant with disease of various complexions. There is not a family within the range of our acquaintance, but where are to be found sufferers to the prevailing pestilence. The infant and its mother, the tender year and the adult, are alike writhing under the baneful influence of these maladies. It is our painful duty to communicate the melancholy visita tion of a worthy and respectable family-our neigh bours-with this disastrous epidemic. At Bullina mang, the wife, two children, and a nursemaid, of W. A. Brodribb, Esq., J.P., have been almost simultineously struck with this stubborn disorder; and after lingering under the painful pressure of the ferocious distemper, his eldest daughter (Ellen), a fine interesting child, rising five years, died on Saturday morning, the 28th ultimo, in the tenth day of her illness, and was interred on Wednesday 'last, in the Cemetery at Cooma, attended by a re s...
Country News. GUNDAGAI. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
Country News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) GUVNDAGAX. - THE WEATHER during the last fortnight has been frosty, some of the nights as severe as we ever recollect to have felt on the Murrimbidgee. Ice onrthe ponds, in the shade, 14 inch in thickness but at the time we write, it is raining and we trust we may have a week's rain, as it is much wanted, LICENSED PUBLICANS.-- Some time since, in " Bell's Life in Sydney," we read a paragraph sta ting that not a 100 miles from Gundagai there was a chief constable that could neither ride, run nor walk; we can tell the writer, we have a shrewd guess to whom he alludes, and would likewise ob serve that our C. C. is on his pins again, although not able to walk, can waddle not unlike a fat goose. He last week summoned three innkeepers for having their doors open at half-past nine, and although not one of them was doing business. Mr. Smith cut the matter very short by asking all persons in Court to produce their watches, when it was found the ch...

Small Debts' Court. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
Last Monday being one of the da3s appointed by the Rules of Court, for the hearing of causes, under the Small Debts' Act. Messrs. W. H. Hovell, F. Rossi and - Ball, took their seats ontlhl Bench shortly after 10 o'clock. Very few of the cases were defended, and scarcely one presented a feature of public interest. RULES OF CounT.-Field v. Eardly.-Plaintiff, who is a shoemaker, sought to recover from defen dant, who is a constable in the police, the sum of seven shillings for a pair of women's shoes and five shillings money lent. When the case was called on, it appeared that defendant had not filed a defence in conformity with the Rules of Court. He denied being indebted. Captain Novell (who acted as Chairman) said, that as defendant was a constable, he ought to have known, that it was necessary to file a plea two clear days before the hearing of a cause; had he done so, the case would have been gone into, and a ver dict would have been given for him, as plaintiff had no witness prese...
THE COLONIZATION DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
' THE COLONIZATION DEBATE. [From the Daily News, April 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 pre serve. Last night, Mr. Scott moved for "a select committee to enquire into the political and financial relations between Great Britain and her dependencies, with a view to reduce the charges on the British Treasury, and to enlarge the functions of the colonial legisla tures." 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 de finite practicable plan of reform not easy to party. And Mr. Gladstone, who has of late been assiduously 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 agai...
EMIGRATION TO CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
EMIGRATION TO CALIFORNIA. EMIGRATION has been pouring into the dig gins from all quarters; and the writer thinks that judging from what he hears, at least one hundred thousand will have arrived by August next. The cold weather had for a time checked the emigration to the mines; *but almost every one engaged in gold dig ging was preparing to go to the mines in the spring The writer says, that the present is the coldest winter known in California for fifty years. More than ninety-five persons, among them several women, had left Mazaltan for the gold regions between the 20th and 24th of January last. The following is written with spirit and point, and is probably as honest a statement of affairs in Carlifornia as can be obtain ed: ";California, in the Woods a piece, Jan. 2, 1849." :Eirery newspaper I see from the States (and they are mighty few) contains one or more letters from out. here somewhere, giving . the most. awful description of things here imaginable-horrible murders, outrag...
ROBBERY BY A GOVERNMENT OFFICER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
ROBBERY BY A GOVERNMENT OFFICER. [From the "Daily News," April 5.] Ri. LODEn, late overseer of convicts at Wool wich, was charged on his own confession, at Bow-street, with having stolen £735 in gold, one £10 Bank of England note, and one £5 Bank of England note, the property of Her Majesty, with which he absconded from the Justitia hulk. The prisoner seemed very much affected, and being, by order of the magistrate, accommodated with a seat, he kept his face concealed with his handkerchief until the examination termi nated. Mr. G. Sanglier said he was clerk to Mr` \Toules, the superintendent of the convicts on board the hulks on the Thames and at Portsmouth. The prisoner was an overseer on board the Justitia, lying off the Arsenal at Woolwich, being appointed to the situa they are too cunning to make the avowal in public. On this head it has been attempted to juggle the working classes by the following fallacy :-" If all things are advanced in price," say the bullionists, " will not...
DISPOSAL OF CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
DISPOSAL OF CONVICTS. The following letter, written by nMr. Duncan Iloyle, an extensive employer of labour in the Geelong District, who is at present in England, will be read with in terest. It is dated, " London, 30th March, 1849." I have just returned from a three months' continental. tour, and almost immediately after my, arrival, I signed a petition got up here by some parties interested in South Australia against the introduction, into that Colony, of convict labour. The petition was presented on 27th instant, when the question of convict emigration to the Cape was brought before Parliament; and, as I thought that the discussion would have a bearing on our Colony, I attended the house, and propose now to give you a word or two on the debate, and its results. The question was brought forward by a Mr. Adderly, who, in a long speech, pointed out the injustice of " polluting a Colony hitherto uncontaminated;" and all that he said in favor of his case could be, with still greater fo...
ANSWER TO CLARENCE LINDEN'S ENIGMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
ANSWER TO CLARENCE LINDEN'S ENIGMA. My classic lore I've pondered o'er, And think I need no further wander, I got no peace, till in fair Greece I found your first-in " Hero" and Leander.* The soldier loves heroic deeds The bard has also sung their praise t The warrior's thought upon them feeds And dwells with rapture on their lays. The maiden fair, with brow of care And heart, where love lies hidden, No sooner reads her hero's deeds, Than forth the fire flames, bidden. Now take the second from your first It nothing means without it, Tis clear its dumb on love and war, But Hero must not flout it. Our dearest gift is woman, blest With beauty, grace and charming love; In heroism I oft times dressed Though gentle as the fondest dove. TYRO. * Crossing the Hellespont. + Cowper, Moore, &c. + Queen Catherine, Lady Russell, Lady Jane Gray.
Original Poetry. "BE FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
"BE FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH." Happy soul whatjoy awaits you In the kingdom that's above, There to feast with saints and angels On the banquet of His love. The food we eat is that of angels, Flowing from a Saviour's side ; And what we drink is of the fountain Where the living streams abide. There we'll cast our crowns before Him Transported with a Saviour's love, And sing the joys of life and glory Round our Father's throne above. There the wicked can't torment us, There the serpent cannot come There streets are paved with crowns of glory, And the city is our own.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1849. Before W, H. HOVELL, Esq., J. P. and LIEUT. BALL, J. P, LARCENY.-Mary Anne Sullivan, a native of the colony, apparently abraut fourteen years of age, and William Johnson, a ticket-of-holder, were placed in the dock, charged under the following circum stances. The case evidently excited great interest among a class to whom the prisoners appeared to be well known, for although the robbery was committed at 9 o'clocltkon the morning of the examination and the prisoners were in custody about Lalf an hour, before his Worship, Captain Hovell, took his seat, the Court-house was well filled with spectators, a cir cumstance not very frequent during the usual sit tings of the Court. John Smith, upon being sworn stated, that he resided in one of Captain Rossi's Cottages, and that having had occasion to go out that morning about half past 8 o'clock, he left the female prisoner, who had been living with him for the last seven months, in the house behind him. Upon his retu...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 11 August 1849
To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Sin,-I noticed an article in your last issue (ex. tracted from a London print) in which a very gross attack was made upon the conduct of His Holiness the Pope. Although I know it is the usual custom for newspaper editors to make such selections from English papers as are calculated to inform their readers of the opinions of home journalists, and by them of the sentiments of the public generally, on the great questions of the day, I think it was very unwise in you to publish the article referred to, as it is calculated to offend the religious feelings of the Roman Catholic community in this neighbour hood. For my own part I ain not the least offended by the opinions of thle writer of the article, but de plore that his understanding is so benighted as to induce him to hold such wicked sentiments. I hope you will not consider that I am unnecessa rily rude, when I say that you showed a sad want of judgmeutauddiscretion, in re-publishing the attac...
