Execution of Rush. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

Execution of Z&usli. Norwich, April 21. — The closing scene of this horrible tragedy has beeu enacted here this day, and James Bloomtield Rush expiated his enormous crimes by an ignominious death on the public scaffold. The recent conduct of the wretched man, and his unvarying protestations of innocence, are already well known. At nine o'clock on Fri day night the convict received a letter from his eldest daughter, the perusal of which had a very depressing effect upon him. After a short time he recovered himself, and ate an unusually hearty supper. He retired to rest at ten o'clock, and slept uninterruptedly until midnight, when he aroused himself for a few minutes, and got out of bed. He again retired to rest, after a short inter val, and slept until five o'clock. At six o'clock Mr. Brown, the chaplain of the gaol, arrived at the castle, and had an interview with the culprit. He maintained the same unwillingness to converse on the subject of his crime, and protested his in...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

HHG-ZjISSS MTBWS. The late westerly winds have brought ns a host of ships from England. The news is, directly, and by way of Ceylon, to 7th May. The following are the most important items -. — Prince Albert was on a visit to Lincolnshire, where he was popularising himself by laying foundation stones and such like offices. The ministerial measure for the repeal of the Navigation Laws was the great question of the day. The ministry threatened to resign if the bill were rejected by the Lords. Lord Stanley was the leader of the opposition. It was read a third time, and passed, on tha 24th April, in the House of Commons, by a majority of 275 to 214. The bill was read a first time in the House of Lords on the same day. A bill for enabling persons having encumbered estates in Ireland to dispose of them with more facility than they can now do, had been intro duced by the Government, and was expected to be carried almost unanimously. It was an adoption of a portion of the plan proposed by Si...

Shocking Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

Shocking1 Suicide. , (From the Weekly Dispatch, March 4.) On Wednesday morning great consternation was occasioned in Caledonian-road, near the Model Prison, Pentonville, by the discovery of the body of a gentleman lying in the fields near there, with his throat dreadfully cut, under circumstances cal culated to engender a general belief that a most brutal murder had been committed, it appeals that about seven o'clock in the morning, as a milkman, named EdwarJs, was passing along the Caledonian-road, near the new railway-bridge, his attention was directed by the low moaning and whining of a dog, which proceeded from the back of some palings which separate the roadway from the fields between there and Copenhagen House. On approaching the spot, he observed a large pool of blood close by a wooden cottage adjacent, and, on proceeding further, a small black and white spaniel was perceived sitting on what appeared to be a bundle of clothing, but, on closer inspection, it was found that the...

The Poor Squatters. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

T&e Poor Squatters. Little did Earl Grey imagine that his extraor dinary conliscatory concessions of (ixity of tenure, and right of pre-emption of the public lands of the colony to the poor squatters, would have been hailed by the colonist as an act of general injus tice to the community, for the exclusive benefit of a section of the inhabitants; but the same com munity which condemned his Lordship's project, must have been taken completely by surprise, on reading the extraordinary announcement of the Registrar-General, on Wednesday last when enu merating the excessive labours pertaining to his office, to which the Legislative Council have lately given the quietus. ' There was a greater loss at Culloden,' and old Jacobite in Scotland used to console himself by saying, when some misfortune affected his own domestic economy. There are greater losers than me, says Mr. Carter, as he contemplates the abolition of his department : the amount secured by mortgages on live stock and ...

The Gent who goes to the Races. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

The &ent who g-oes to the Spaces. The gent who goes to the races must not be con founded with the sporting gent. He knows no thing in the world about the running, nor indeed does care much about it, beyond the manner in which it mav effect a chance he has in a ' Uerbv bweep. But he thinks the fuct of his being seen there gives him a position in society, and he would not miss the races for anything. Me buyeth a ' D'Orsay blouse' which he believeth to have been under the count's own eye, a blue cravnt, spotted with white wafers, a whip, and a pair of short patent boots, to produce an effect, in which he rnounteth a 'fast four-horse coach' from the Garrick'8 Head. At the Elephant and Castle, being called ' my noble sportsman' by the vendor, be buyeth a card, nnd cor.ceiveth that he is taken for Lord Chesterfield. He askcth the vendor, with a severe look, ' If it i3 Dorling's?' to shew that he is a ' downey cove,' and not to be done. He also hath a glass of pale ale. On Clapham ...

Execution of Sarah Harriet Thomas at Bristol. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

Bxeciitfon of Sarah Harriet Thomas at Kristol. Tins wretched criminal underwent the sentence of the law, for the murder of her mistress, on Fri day. The scaffold was erected over the great gates of the gaol. Between twelve and one o'clock in the morniug she partook of a mutton chop; she afterwards laid down. The chaplain arrived at seven o clock, and sne seemed more attentive than before to her religious duties. Half an hour previous to the execution the governor of the gaol, Mr. Gardiner, announced to her the painful duty which he had to perform, and said he hoped she would accompany him to the place of execution quietly. She stamped with her foot several times and said she would not go. She seemed almost frantic, and at the time appointed, Mr. Gardiner was compelled to procure the assistance of six or seven men, who led her into the press-yard. She resisted all the time. In the press-room, at the suggestion of Dr. Sweet, the chaplain, she asked the governor to give her love to her...

POLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

FOfeASm. The following lines were written in 1831, when the brave but unfortunate Poles were up in arms for the independence of their oppressed and un happy country. Considering what is now taking plaee on the other and more stormy side of our globe, they read somewhat like an old prophecy about to be fulfilled. According to recent Eu ropean intelligence, ' the leaders of all the revo lutionary armies in Europe are Poles ; a great spectacle awaits us: a fearful crisis is at hand, the curse of Polish division will fall again upon the heads of the dividing powers.' Just so : such matters will always thus adjust themselves in the long run. Injustice and oppression, rank, ram pant, and ruthless, whether of a national or of an individual character, thanks to an ever watchful and overruling Providence, never did, and never will, go unpunished, in some shape or other, even in this world. 1 will teach, if possible, the stones To rise against earth's tyrants. — Btron. Tht tongue is mute, imm...

In our last number we referred to the many vexatious, and to our thinking, frivolous pretexcs, upon which our ropsrter had of late been refused admittance in the Police OSico. This spccios of oxpulsiou is altogether of so un English a character, and so utterly at varianco with all es tablished precedent, as to excite in the mind of every uninitiated parson a foeling closely allied to that of astonishment. Individuals of this cla3S, are doubtlcs3 at a loss to conceive in what manner the interests of public jus tice are likely to be forwardod by any such ' hole and corner'1 proceedings. With a dogroo of ignorance truly lamentable, they enquire whether, in the opinion of the Bathurst Bench, the systoin of judicaturo pur...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

Last week an unprecedented race came viY at Mile-end, New-town, between a pig and a pigeon, to walk one hundred yards, and was won by the pig in seven and a- half minutes, beating the pigeon by about seven yards. The animal nnd bird had been for some time in training, and each whs accompanied by its owner at its head. At stinting the pigeon, which was the favourite, went off at a gallant rate, the pig losing much time by smelling and gruntinjr along the road, but ultima tely his longer had the advantage of the shorter legs of his feathered companion. The pigeon was a common tumbler, and the pig was about ten stone. — London Paper.

THE BERMUDAS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 25 August 1849

THE BEEMUDAS. The Bermudas, as the place of exile for political delinquents, have recently been brought under public notice. They are a group of islands, in the middle of the Atlantic, far away (580 miles) from any other land.— They are situated 'between the 32 and 33 degrees of latitude, and between' the 63 and 64 degrees of West longitude. The principle islands are five, and the whole, extending from N.E. to S.W. in a curved line, resembling a shep herd's crook, are about twenty-five miles broad. At present, they contain, according to the census of 1844, a population of. 10,126, to 100 white inhabitants there being 113 coloured. In 1780, the population was estimated at 15,000, and though the islands seem to offer no advantage as a colony, no cause is assigned, except perhaps the separation of the United States from England for this diminution of the inhabitants'. These islands were first discovered by Europeans, about the year 1515, and was taken possession of and peopled by Engla...
