To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 23 November 1850

To the Editor of The Bathurst Free Press. Mr. Editor, — I have just returned from a. fati- guing but otherwise delightful excursion in honor of the north-west point of Hassan's VValls, whence clambering down the luxuriantly covered rocks north of the new line of road, we halted in front of a semi-circular excavation presenting unequivocal indications of a true coal formation, discovered two years ago by Mr. James Connor, of this place. I had to content myself with ocularly tracing the various strata exhibited, viz . sandstone, pipeclay, blue slate, and coal imbedded in shale ; but was firmly persuaded of the existence of treasures be-   neath that are easily available. The excavaition is ten feet high, at an elevation of about eighty feet perpendicular from the proximate road. A more romantic spot could not well be con- ceived. It is environed with beautiful wild flowers, running vines, trees, and shrubbery, and commands a prospect of beauty and sublimity not to be decs...

Colonial News. PORT PHILLIP. SEPARATION REJOICINGS.—THE ILLUMINATION NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 November 1850

Colonial News. PORT PHILLIP. fFrotn the Melbourne Argus. J SEPARATION RKJTOICINGS. — -THE ILLUMINA TION NIGHT. Notwithstanding the exhilirating influ ence of the glad tidings just received, we were not prepared to anticipate so univer sal and so harmonious a demonstration as that which is drawing to a close as we hastily write these lines. We unhesita tingly assert that there never was an occa sion in any city in any part of the world in which the residents so readily, so cheerfully, and so unanimously united in giving expres sion to their joy. Every house was illu minated. Even the most dirty hovels in the most dirty of all the dirty lanes in the city followed the example of their neigh bour?, and gave some token of rejoicing ; whilst no expense was spared by those who could afford it, in getting the assistance of nrtists and artisans to decorate their houses. The principal feature of the demonstration was its universality, for although many creditable and well executed designs wer...

No title THE REJOICINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 November 1850

''Prom the Melbourne Daily News, Nov. 14. J THE REJOICINGS. We are much mistaken if the good folks of Melbourne, who are bent upon making a business of a pleasure, will not experi ence a difficulty in finding mat'er fur four days ' rejoicings ' in Port Phillip. The whole affair originated with a parcel of fussy idlers, and is not warmly responded toby the, public. The programme of fol lies issued by the chief actors in this farce, and coupled too with the names of gentle men who had nothing to do with, and strongly repudiated such puerilities, may be looked upon almost as a national dis grace, as a positive imputation upon the common sense of the people ; and we deem it but justice to the great majority of the public to thus express our disapprobation of the perilous absurdities practised in their name, and under the guise of their consent. We cannot .but also censure the authorities for haviug acted so supinely throughout; had they taken the initiative by discouraging the dangerous...

PEEL'S REBUKE TO THE TITLE HUNTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 November 1850

PEEL'S REBUKE TO THE TITLE HUNTERS. fFrom the Spectator. J Few acts of Sir Robert Peel' career have occasioned more speculative curiosity than his posthumously published wish, that none of his family should accept a title as the reward of services rendered by himself. The conservative Post seeks an explanation of the ' strange wish.'' in. the character and achievements of the statesman. He was from the first destined to be a member of Parliament, and trained for that post ; he lell into the project, and threw all his energies into it ; all his triumphs were in the House of Commons ; he declined op portunities of being called to the upper house, because he knew' where the true field of his genius lay ; he desired tho roughly to identify himself with the.house — a ruling passion which he did not con ceal ; and ' this last act caps the rest.' There is some truth in this, and, as the Post says, it helps to explain Sir Rob. rt's wish without the extravagant .assumption that he was solely...

THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE AND WHIG EXTRAVAGANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 November 1850

THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE AND ' WHIG EXTRAVAGANCE. ' CFrom the Manchester Examiner and Times.) It can scarcely be made matter of accu sation against the Parliament or people of this country, that they have at any time shown any disposition to deal parsimoni ously with those, illustrious branches of -the Royal family, who for a good part of a cen tury have so largely shared m the generous munificence of the State. It would be in vidious to recapitulate the separate items of the successive grants which have been -made out of the public treasury, to maintain in honour and dignity the long line of descen dants, which, amongst a host of other blessings, we owe to the paternal reign of George the Third. Were we to sum up the total of all these ungrudgingly dispensed donations to male and fenaale inheritors of' the royul name, ihe result, would be sug gestive of some doubts as to the discretion of that superabundant loyalty which has so excessively overrated both the obligations of the state, ...
