The Stanfield at all Murders. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

The Stanfleld 21 all Murders. After a very lengthened trial Rush has been found ' guilty of murders.' The jury were ab sent but seven minutes. When the verdict was pronounced, the prisoner said, ' My Lord, I am innocent for all that, thank God Almighty.' When removed from the dock, he was observed to smile. The followinc subsequent particulars are published by the Observer, 8th April. ('From the Norfolk Chronicle of April 1th. J This wretched culprit appears, as far as we can learn, to continue to assume the same indifference to his impending fate which he has hitherto ma nifested. As he came from the dock and passed through the room, the same leer that he had so often put on during the trial, passed over his fea tures, and he said in a blunt tone, ' Where's my hat1?' As soon as he had entered the condemned cell, his first words were ' Where's my supper? I want my supper after a hard day's work. I shall now live at the county's expense.' No re freshments being immediately ready, he ...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

CAXiXFOE&NXA. Tun following is written with spirit and point, and is piobably as honest a statement of affairs in California as can be obtained : — ' California, in the WoodB a piece, Jan. 2nd, 1849.' Every newspaper I see from the States (and they are mighty few) contains one or more letters from out here somewhere, giving the most awful descriptions of things here imaginable — horrible murders, outrages, thefts, hanging people by scores on trees, Lynch law, &c. Now, as one of our company has made as much as he thinks will suffice for him, and is going home, they have all agreed and rtqtiested that I should give you by his bands a little h'fstory of how we do things in our ' dig gings.' -In the first place, we assemble Monday morning, numbering generally from 120 or 130, our whole number who have signed the bye-laws being' MirS: Our place of rendezvous is a large oak treevon a beautiful hill, out of which guslus as pure a- stream of water as was ever drunk by man.

POLICE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

POLICE OFFICE. We have this week omitted the pro ceedings at the Police Office, and it is -our duty to give our subscribers and friends a good reason for so doing. During the last ten months we have employed two reporters, both men of good character, but on attending their daily duty, at this office, they were ge nerally told (five times out of six) that the case coming on was to be heard privately. Upon several occasions last week our reporter was refused admit tance. The poor man frequently re turned from the Police Office with grief pictured in his countenance, and on be ing asked by us for the news of the day, his reply has been — Its a ministe rial case again — I have not been allow ed admittance. So often has this been the case, that it has been heart-rending to us. We have at all times used every exertion to furnish a correct report of the Police proceedings, but our re porter has been told, in an abrupt manner, to come the next day and look at the depositions. On this accoun...

Murder by the Blacks at Moreton Bay. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

Murder by the Blacks at IWEoreton Say. Information was brought to Brisbane a few days since, that a person named Charles Gray, master of the ketch Aurora, was treacherously killed by the blacks on Bribie's island, in this bay, whilst loadinsr his vessel with shells. From enquiries since made of the men who worked the vessel with Gray, it appears that the Aurora went to the bay to bring. up a cargo of shells to Brisbane, and that Gray took two black boys with him from this place to help*, to' load the craft ; that whilst getting the shells, collected on the beach, one of the boys did something to annoy the deceased, who threw an oyster-shell at the boy, which cut his head. Both tbe lads then ran off into the bush, and in a short time afterwards returned in company with seven or eight other blacks. On seeing them approaching, evidently meaning mischief, Gray and his mate en deavoured to launch the boat off the beach and get to the vessel ; but finding her immovable, Gray laid hold of ...

The late Shooting- Affair at Macedon. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

The late Shooting- Affair at mount SMCacedon. (From the Melbourne Daily News.) John Rawson, who has been in custody for the last three weeks, upon a charge of shooting a fellow servant named George Bethel], in the em ploy of Mr. Dunsford at Mount Maeedon,- was again plivced in the felon's dock at the police court yesterday morning, Bethell having sufficiently re covered to yive his attendance to prospcute the charge. The appearance of Bethell created con siderable interest, he is apparently about sixty years of age, with snow white hair, beard, whis kers, and moustache, which, not having been trimmed since the occurence, which has deprived Bethell of his left arm, gives him a singular strik ing appearance. Bethell fully confirmed the affidavit which he had previously made, and al though in an exceedingly weak state, gave his evidence with perspicuity. He stated, ' the pri soner could not have been four yards from 'me, when he fired at me. The gun which he fired at me, I loaded mysel...

Threatening- Letters to the Queen. At Windsor John Wardle was charged before the mayor and two other magistrates, with having sent threatening letters to her Majesty and other parties.

CONVICTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

coxrvxcTxsas. (From the South African, May 30.) About fifteen years ago, the Archbishop of Dub lin demonstrated, in two letters to Earl Grey, that the practice of transporting criminals from the Mother Country to Penal Settlements, was bad in Dririciule : and that its fruits were bad for the Mo ther Country, bad for the Settlement, and bad for the Criminals. To any one capable of following the course of this profound and most acute writer's ideas, the argument was a demonstration. It was impossible to escape from his conclusion, that the system ought to be abandoned. But he did not call for sudden change. He called for inquiry, that the results of fifty years' experience might be laid before Parliament and the country. This was grnnted in 1838, and after a comprehensive and searching investigation, the Archbishop's posi tions were established beyond the reach of doubt or hesitation. The Committee of the House of Commons concluded their Report with six resolu tions, one of which was ...

A Cart-Load of Philosopher's Stones. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 18 August 1849

A Cart-Load of Philosopher's Stones. We have heard a great deal about the philosopher's stone, as if it were possible to macadamise the road of life and render its pathway smooth, with such a literally singular paucity of material. We would not think ot offering the public a single stone.' though it might be as precious as the dia mond, as attractive as the loadstone, and as sharp ening to the faculties as the whetstone: so we beg leave to offer a cart-load of philosopher's stones w.e have all ready for use whenever we may be called upon, and properly remunerated to fur nish them. 1. '.Drive thy business, let not thy business drive thee,' is a golden rule for mankind in ge neral, but for cab-man-kind in particular. Take a lesson from the butcher's boys in their carts, and don't let any know who thou art driving at. 2. ' He who would thrive must rise at live.' So says the proverb, though there is more of rhyme than of reason in it ; for if He who will thrive must rise at five, it mus...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, 1849. Police Magistrate— Carcoar. MR. NICHOLS, the honourable member for the Northum- berland Boroughs, in a speech made upon the Estimates for the ensuing year, stated, in effect, that there existed no necessity for Police Magistrates in such places as Par- ramatta, Bathurst, and Carcoar. It is hardly supposable that the honourable member would venture unon such an assertion without having made enquiries upon the subject and procuring information ; and in justice to the districts to which he has referred, Hlie ought to have stated the re- sults of those injuries, and the facts upon which his asser- tion is based. With Parramatta and Bathurst we shall not interfere, but shall relate, as briefly as possible, the information we have obtained, with reference to Carcoar, and the reasons, why, with respect to that place, we differ from the honourable member.

Your reporter states, that it was held in Arnold's Inn; I think, by your referring to your own publication, of the 28th of July, you will see that the meeting was to take place in the Court Hotise, which it did, and I think it hut justice to our worthy Police Magis trate, to state, that over since lie came amongst us, nc never, on any occasion, allowed meetings, the purport of which was likely to be a benefit to the district, to be held in a common public house, but kindly offered the use of tho Court house, which he did on this occasion (as well as on all former ones) to tho deputation who waited upon him with tho requisition, which offer was received with thauk.s.
