LINES [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 August 1849

LINES Oiv the Death of Bernard Cavb.va.qh, an Irishman, who died at sea, on board the Ann Milne, of Dundee, on his way to Sydney, September 22, 1811. ?He left the land where his forefathers lie, In the midst of the western main ; In the hope that another land might supply All he asked fiom his own, in vain ! His lot though hard, with a smother'd sigh Alone he might have borne, But a family tie is a sacred tie, ;.? Which none may lightly scorn. . /So lie; turn'd his back on his father land, With a heavy heart and sore, And join'd himself to an emigrant band, As they left their native shore. The ship flew fast on her snowy wings, And the deep sea hcav'd beneath ; As his heart grew cold to all earthly things, And his eyes were clos'd in death ! Cold, want, and woe, ere he came on board, Had sadly sapp'd his frame ; And yain the aid which art could afford To prolong life's fleeting flame. The bell toll'd out, as jt should for the dead, With a solemn sound and slow ; And his Saviour's na...

The Young Man's Almanack. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 August 1849

T3ie 'Sroimg1 SVSan's Almanack. The fashion varies with every place you visit. For instance, you may keep your hat on at the Casino ; but it is scarcely considered good man ners to do so at the Opera. You may whistle and join in 'God save the Queen,' at Jullien's Concert; but the same taste is not expected of you at the j Philharmonic. Any one is at liberty to call out ' Bravo House!' at the Grecian Saloon, but the same exclamation would be considered a little out of place at Exeter Hall. A cigar may be lighted with great effect in the corridor of the Adelphi, when the audience is coming out; but you would hardly attempt such a thing in the crush-room of her Majesty's Theatre. Never sit next to a baby in an omnibus, much less between two babies. The fewer dignitaries a young man knows on the bench, the better it is eventually for his sta tion in life. Of all morning calls, none are so unpleasant to pay as a magistrates ! If you peep into the bonnet shops, it is a clear proof that yo...

MORFOLR ISLAND. COPIED FROM THE JOURNAL OF A COLONIAL WANDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 August 1849

2-7OSiS'OS.2Si SSZiAEf:©. COPIED FROM THE JOURNAL OF A COLONIAL WANDERER. This island is situated about one thousand miles N.E. of Sydney. It is small, being only twenty one miles in circumference, of volcanic origin, and evidently one of the most fertile spots in°the universe. Rising abruptly on all sides but one from the sea, clustering columns of basalt spring ing out of the water, secure its endurance with the strong architecture of God. The one side presents a low, sandy level, on which is placed that penal settlement, which is the horror of men. It is approachable only by boats through a narrow bar in the reef of coral, which is here visible, and encircles the whole island. Except the military guard, and the va rious officers and servants, of 'Government, none but convicts are permitted to reside on the _ island; nor, unless in case of great emergency, can any ship, other than those of Government shewing the secret signal, be allowed to approach, The island consists of a serie...

Bread Vapour. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 August 1849

Bread Vapour. CFrom Hit People's Advocate, August 4.) The vast importance to any people to be supplied1 with good bread will be admitted by all. The adulteration of this article, so appropriately called ?' The Staff of Life,' has often, and with great justice, aroused the indignation of the consumer, and called for legislative interference. The busi ness of the baker is one in which every body has a direct interest. To their honesty is confided the health of thousands of their fellow men, and it is but justice to admit, that as a body of tradesmen, they have not abused their trust.' Thegeriefal health of the people attest the fact. If 'The, Staff of Life' is adulterated, the adulterations arW innocuos, if not perfectly wholesome, being mostly an admixture of the flour produced from an irife^1 rior grain, and seldom that of any deleterioiis' substance. There is, however, another point, which, though not so serious in its consequences as adulteration, is nevertheless of too much momen...

HOME MEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 August 1849

HOMES NEWS. The following letter from Mr. Duncan Hoyle, dated London, 30th March, has been published by the Geelong Press; — I have 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 con vict' labour- ? The petition rwas' presented on; the 27th instant when the question of convict emigra tion to the Cape was brought before Parliament ; and, as. X 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 de bate j and its results. The question was brought forward by a Mr. Adderleyi who, in along 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 force, applied to Port Phillip. You must know, that the ground on which Lord Grey has insisted on ...

Of fruits, there aie apples, peurs, peache?, plums, cherries, grapes, &c, in abundance, and of exqui- . site quality ; likewise many tropical fruits — viz., oranges, lemons, dates, figs, pomegranates, &c. Many of these fruits are the growth of nature, without cultivation — aa for ins'.ance, wheat, rye, and barlev, and several of the tropical fruits grapes, flux, a kind of hemp, red and white clover. The oats in appearance resembles ours, but they dift'er in the grain ; their grain generally growing , higher, with u thicker stalk, which, however, may he attributed more to the fertility of the soil and to the climate than to a difference in the species. The clover is exactly the same as in Europe, ex cept that it grows much more dens...

They spoke with faces' unconcern'd, And cold unmoisten'd eye, Then with their burden onward mov'd, And quickly past me by. I wandered onward on my path', I sought the Curchyard drear ; I saw the newly covered graven — ? I saw the widow there .- Unpitied and alone she stood To soothe her there were none ; Tet as she wept she feebly sigh'd — ' Oh Lord, thy will be done !' Besido her son's lone grave she knelt, Ho tears bedew'd the sod ; No friend had she to share her grief, No refuge but her God : What now could soothe her widow'd heart P Her earthly comfort gone ; 'Tis faith supports her still to say — ' Oh Lord, thy will bo done !' ?And when at length she left the tomb, Andto her home returned, Not with a wild and hopeless grief, ; For her lost child she mourn'd : She trusted in her Saviour's word, Again to see her son ; And strengthen'd by this hope she ...

But here, in mellow depth of tone, 'We've birds will yield, nor need, to none, Whose notes would melt a heart of stone, So softly sweet, ray Joe. And then for plumage, wing and breast, That bird has yet to build her nest, 'Would meet Australia's crest to crest, And strut elate, my Joe ! The cockatoos may well be proud. And soar on high, and scream aloud ; Themselves the only snowy cloud They ever saw, my Joe. And oh, what lively little things Within the forest spread their wings ; From which a heart-felt pleasure springs, As there we stray, my Joe ! They hop and flutter, chirp and play, In friendly groups, from spray to spray- And have, at times, a deal to say, Whatu'er ...
