THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." COURT OF REQUESTS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 23 November 1850

T11K JJiVTHURSriJ'llKK PRESS. 'SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1850. 'MA.GNA ESI VERITAS ET PRJEVALBBIT.' COURT OF REQUESTS ACT. If the framers of many of our colonial enactments could foresee the trouble and annoyance, and in many cases, the loss and inconvenience to which, in some cases their carelessness, and in others their illcon sidered, half-digested measures or clauses of measures, are attributable, they would, it is to be hoped, bestow a little more pains and consideration in their concoction. As a sample of thia^-speciea of legislative in ?conaideratene88, we may in all fairness be sallowed to point to the 23rd clause of the ?Court of Requests Act, by which it is pro vided — ' That every action which shall be brought in ?any Court of Potty Sessions shall be brought in the court which shall be holden in and for the ?district where the defendant in such action shall usually reside.' Upon what principle of justice or conve nience the manufacturer of the above ridiculous provision cons...

Extracts. THE CONDITION OF HUNGARY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 23 November 1850

~': Extracts. ;'-'v TH E CONDITION OF H UNGARY. (lYom the London Examiner.) After our repeated denunciation of the many murders and unjust deeds of violence committed by the Austrian Government, we may be expected to express our gratification At some symptoms of a return to a more just and merciful policy. Sixty officers, condemned by the court martial of Arad to long periods of imprisonment, and confisca tion of their property, have been set free and their estates restored to them. All these persons had formerly served in the Austrian army, but had quitted it before the revolution broke out. A Btill larger number, however, remain behind— those ?who at the time were Austrian officers serving in Hungarian regiments, and who, having been obliged by order of the Empe ror to Bwear to defend the new constitution and obey the Hungarian Ministry, did. not, feel themselves -justified iu retiring when attacked by Jellaehich, or commanded by en Emperor to whom they had never sworn fealty.

HARTLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 23 November 1850

- :????? p HARTLEY. /From our Bowenfels Correspondent. j The district of Hartley has for some time past been rife witli the reports of melancholy accidents and sudden deaths. Another distressing casualty occurred on Tuesday, (the '12th inst.) A young man in the employ of Mr. M. J Finn, was killed instantaneously by the overturning of a cart. He was driving in quest of a load of sand,. when the horse bolted, ran foul of. a stump, and the upset vehicle came in contact with the young man's head and crushed 'it to .pieces. His remains were found by one of the aborigines a short time after the fearful catastrophe. It is \yorthy of remark that , this is , the second man killed by the same cart. ' A great many inquiries are afloat respecting the long contemplated church in Hartley, for which' large sums were subscribed and cash donations realized years and years ago. It is rather sur prising that in a district containing many members of the Church of England, and yet destitute of any suita...

Oonntry Kew«. OJCONNELL PLAINS. ?? The mutability of human affairs,' is a speci men of phraseology well, suited to the condition of colonial affairs, as far, however, as regards New South Wales. The promising appearances of many parts of our own portion of the district (I speak in relation to our crops) in the early part of the spring gave place, in common with many other parts, under the continued drought, to signs of distress with some of our agriculturists/ Still, compared with our neighbours on the Bathurst side, at least we have had little right to complain ; for in the prospect embracing a few miles around us, our wheat and our hay itself, bur corn and bur early potatoes' have stood out in considerable relief : and yet the fertility of our land, and its irrigated character have been sadly and suddenly overcome . by that other enemy to vegetation — frost : and at once our hopes- are. more than deferred — they are blighted.

WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 23 November 1850

WELLINGTON. Murderous Assault.— Oh Wednesday last, a man named William Miller was apprehended for stabbing William Fletcher. The latter is a trust worthy man, in the service of Mr. Nicolas Hyero nemus, and whilst giving instructions to the pri soner relative to a flock of sheep which he had in his charge, the latter sprung upon Fletcher, and stabbed him with a knife in several places, and it was only by cutting Fletcher's neckerchief the ruffian was forced away from his intended victim. The clothes worn by Fletcher were shockingly cut, and completely saturated with blood. A knife was found near the spot deeply dyed with the crimson fluid. The prisoner has undergone several examinations, but continues remanded on ac count of Fletcher being unable to attend. The wounds are over the left kidney, shoulder, and back, but hopes are entertained of his recovery, owing1 to the prompt attendance of Dr. Curtis. We had a very heavy thunder-storm, accompa nied with hail stones on Tuesday last. I...

California. A FOURTH TERRIBLE CONFLAGRATION! SAN FRANCISCO AGAIN IN ASHES.—SEVERAL SQUARES CONSUMED. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 23 November 1850

California. A FOURTH TERRIBLE CONFLA GRATION! San Francisco again in Ashks. — Several Squares Consumed. {From the Extra to the Alta California, Sep tember 17.) It is our painful duty to record, for the fourth time within the short space of nine mouths, an account of one of those terrible visitations which makes the heart ache to witness. Again has the devouring element run riot in our midst, licking upas with the tongues of demons, houses, and homes, and goods of all kinds — burying in ashes the rewards of long toil and enterprise — crushing out hope from the hearts of many, and shocking the sensibilities of all with its awfully sudden and devastating fury. Our paper had but just gone to press, and a portion of it worked off. when the startling cry of ' Fire, fire,' alarmed the wakeful, and aroused the sleeping, with a suddenness and terror that an earthquake could not have produced. Perhaps in no other place in the wide world can that fearful cry arouse at once such general alarm a...

'? . ' - - ' fFrom/PuneMj *- He rings the uell, but no one comes. He turns restless in bed, looks at his watch, discovers it is time to take his me dicine, but there is no one to give it him. Persons run up aud down stairs. The noise frets him, and, as it increases, he complains audibly, but there is no one to hear him. ' tif dozes,,and forgets his fretfulness. But the next moment a heavy sound, as if some one was playing at skittles over head, makes him start up, and again he rings the bell, and again no one answers it. He listens, fand listens, till listening be comes a pain, added to his other pains. He longs to read, but all his books are in the next room. He longs lo see the paper ; he longs to know if there are any letters ; if any one has called ; and he groans and rolls about, for all these longings, not one of them gratified, seem to fill ,his bed with nettles.

Miscellaneous Kstracts. Strbngth op the Swordfish. — Ano- ther illustration of the well-known power and agility of the swordfish, the formidable enemy of the whale, was discovered by the workmen engaged in repairing1 the brig Leonidas. whaler, at this port, a day or two since. In searching for the ciuse of the leak which had occurred during her last voyage, it was found that the side of the vessel had been penetrated quite through, including the copper' sheathing and two thicknesses of solid oak plank, not less than five inches, by the sword of one of these fish. It was broken off smoothly at the side of the vessel. — N^eio Bedford (U. S.) Mercury. Convict Discipline. — At the third read ing of the Convict Prisons Bill, on the 11th July.

CONFESSION OF PROFESSOR ???? WEBSTEll. (From the Times, July 18.) A.' very terrible story has latelv hern under investigation before one of the cri minal court* in the United States— that of Professor Webster. We do not, for obvious reasons, often choose the ' causes celebres' of any', country but. our own for comment. The .Old Bailey 'Sessions, ami the various assizes \ unhappily furnish us with to - am ple opportunities for commenting upon the yario.us developments and manifold forms of crime. Sometimes, indeed, a case will occur—such as that of Madame Laffarge, or of the Due de Praslin,. among our French neighbours — when the crime of an indivi dual. interpsts the imagination and arouses the indignation of all Europe. ' We cannot, however, rei'nemb°r the occasion whrn-any great crime committed in the United Slates proved of much interest on this side of the Atlantic.
