DARLINGHURST GAOL. Report from the Select Committee on the Darlinghurst Gaol. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 September 1849

©Aa.SiSBfss-sixxK.s'ap &&€-&. Report from the Select Committee on the Darling hurst Gaol. The Select Committee of the Legislative Coun cil appointed on the Gth June, 1849, ' to inquire into the diaclipine and security of the Uurlinsrhurst Gaol,' have agreed to the following Report. The inquiry entrusted to your Committee by your ho norable Council has, from circumstances which they did not anticipate at the time of their appointment, extend beyond the limits which they, in the first instance, marked out for the sphere of their investigation. It was their anxious wish to conduct the enquiry rather as an examination into the system of management which prevailed in the Darling hurst Gaol, than that it should assume the character of an investigation into the conduct of the officers and persons connected with that establishment. With this view they considered it the most desirable course to take, first, tho evidence of tho Principal Gaoler and the Visiting Magis t...

Railway and Mining Profits. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 September 1849

Z&ailway and. IrSinins' Profits. The London Mining Journal of March the 7th has an article on this subject, which suggests a few thoughts in reference to our railway and ruining speculations, which are deserving of some notice. ' Notwithstanding the uncertainty with which mining undertakings are surrounded,' says our contemporary, ' the chances against a mine turn ing out productive, or even a productive mine continuing so for any length of time, and the varieties of casualties that may happen — such as falling in of roof, deluged with water, derange ment and breakage of machinery, by which the working of the mines to a profit is rendered im possible — yet the capitalist, with experience and judgment to guide him, who makes mining his object, not only escapes loss, but generally rea lises more profit than by any other species of in vestment.' — The way in which this is done, is by holding, in established and dividend paying mines, on the one hand, and by cautiously specu lat...

Poetry. SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 September 1849

Poetry. SONG. O Mary dear, wort tliou but hero, As thou art far beyond the sea; What joy to walk, and hear theo talk, As thou wert wont to talk to me ! While others haunt the gardens gay, Or wander round the fair domain; By, Double Bay, I lonely stray, Ajul sigh for thec, but sigh in vain. The birds their mellow notes prolong, Or stretch in air their brilliant wings; The locust sings his cheerful song. The wing'd grasshopper gaily springs. The shrubs, the flowers, the green-wood loaves, The air, so pure, so mild, so bright. Teem — gleam with life where nothing grieves, 'Tis all ono buzz of deep delight. From Sydney, southward to the strand, Where ocean spreads his spray on high; Bays, creeks, and coves link'd hand in hand, Like beauty's daughters, meet tho eye: And one by one, as on I pass, And, pausing, mark their bright array, Her flowery garland waves — alas! Why art thou love, so far away? Boats skim along, around the bays, With laughing loads of happy life; Whero eyes with eyes...

-!@vtgmal Currc-j})0ifHcitrf, To the Editor of The Batiiurst Advocate. Carcoar. August 28, 1849. Sir, — The friends of the proposed Presbyterian Church have again made a movement in this quarter, and another meeting on the subject has been agreed upon ; Fiiday, the 7th day of September, is the day named. As an early friend of this undertaking, I am glad that such a measure has been adopted, and 1 hope the meeting will be well at tended.. As a member of the Presbyterian body, I rejoice that a fresh dawn, a new revival, has taken place, and that in a short time wo may expect to see the modest mansion of the village preacher rear its humble front in the town ship. That the church will som follow there is every rea son to expect, and in calling upon my fellow labourers in this good work, I would strongly urge upon them the great necessity that exists for earnest and unflagging exertions. I would also say, attend the meeting on the day named. A site has been obtained for our church, and ...

Seal Shooting in the Flords. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 September 1849

Seal Shooting' in tho S'iords. Ma. Ross, in his ' Yatch Voyage to Norway,' says- — 'Our seal-hunts were most entertaining, and the excitement relaxed not for an instant, The seal dives as soon as its fired at or alarmed ; but cannot remain for a prolonged period under water, nature making it cumpulsory that the ani mal should ascend to the surface for respiration. Having selected a particular seal, that appeared nearly as large as a sheep, we were determined by dint of perseverance to hunt it down. We divided our force in such a manner that, rise where the animal would, one of us must immediately see it ; for R ? ? took the starboard side of the gig. P ? went to port, and 1 stood at the stern, while the two sailors, one being a crack shot, kept watch a-head. None of us spoke ; for the seal is as quick of hearing as of sight, and timid to a proverb ; but it was arranged that whoever saw it first was to fire. We kept the boat broadside on — that is to say, her bow and stern faced eith...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1849. Municipal Government. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 September 1849

THE MT1IURST ADYOUiVTK. -SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1849. SSaaioipal G-overrrment. TTiie Report of the Committee of enquiry into the working of the Sydney Corporation, has recom mended its abolition, and the substitution in its place, of three paid Commissioners, the principal ?one at a salary of £000, and the two sub-ordinale ones, at salaries of £300 each, to transact the business of the Common Council, when defunct. We much fear that Government will feel dis posed to listen with a favorable ear to the recom mendation of the committee, as Governments are ever alive to any scheme which is likely to place at their disposal the distribution of offices, the bestowal of patronage, or the extension of their influence through the mazes and ramifications of society. We mean not to deny that there has been mis management, occasional displays of gross ignorance and over-weaning selfishness, and that one or two of the Corporation worthies ' armed with a little brief authority,' have become so in...

Punch at Greenwich Fair. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 September 1849

Pusicli at Greenwich 3c'air« fFrom Punch. J Determined on giving the Fair fair play, we at tended Richardson's Theatre in a spirit of impar tiality, resolved to dignify the performances with the same criticism we should bestow on a play acted at any other establishment. We are unable to state the name of the drama ; for, as we saw no bill, the title of the piece, like its plot, its pur pose, and its language, is enveloped in much mys tery. The most staunch tickler for the unities, would, however, have been satisfied by some of the characteristics of the drama, for the play had one act, one hero, one ghost, and one heroine. We found in the first scene a Brigand Chief in love with a fair Captive in a sarcenet body and muslin mittens. The Captive has a Husband in a crimson surtout braided with gold door-leather, and in his agony of despair he tears off the braid- i ing down his coat while upbraiding the ' spiler of his happiness.' He insists that his 'art is seriously sered,' And he ap...

Dreadful Accident at Glasgow. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 8 September 1849

Uroadful Occident at es-lasgow. On Saturday evening, about half-past seven o'clock, one of the most fearful catastrophes that ever occurred in Scotland took place in the Thea tre Royal, Dunlop-street, Glasgow. Shortly after the performance had commenced, an alarm was given that a fire had broken out in the upper gal fery, and the audience, which was very numerous there, became much excited, and were in a few moments seized with a complete panic. In their efforts to escape down the narrow spiral staircase, which formed the only means of egress from the gallery, a large number of persons were crushed and smothered to death. The cause of the fire was a leak in the gas-pipe, the gas from which was exploded by a lucifer match used by some one to light his pipe. Scarcely any damage was done to the theatre by the fire, which was of no moment, and was extinguished almost immediately. The scene which the theatre presented at the time of the ac cident was appalling. The audience rushed down s...

SCIENCE. NUMBER OF ORGANS IN THE HUMAN SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 8 September 1849

SCISIvfCS. NUMBER OF ORGANS IN THE HUMAN SYSTEM. Theri; are more than 400 muscles in the human body, to each of which there are allotted at least two nerves, making in all more than 1200 pieces in this part of the animal mechanism. The num ber of parts which combine to form the osseous system is also considerable, and each of these parts requires a set of blood-vessels, nerves, &c, &c.,to keep it in repair. The other organs of the body are still more numerous. The lacteals or chyle bearing vessels, the ducts or mouths of which open on the inner surface of the intestines, are very nu merous, and the rest of the vessels composing the absorbent system are beyond all calculation. The number of pipes in the human skin almost exceeds belief. Erasmus Wilson counted 3,528 perspira tory pores in one square inch on the palm of- the hand, and 2,26S in one square inch of skin, on the heel. If we consider each pore to be the aperture of a tube £ of an inch in length, we shall fin...

It is not my intention, gentle men, to trespass on your patience hy any tedious recapitulation of the. arguments, adages, and tru isms usually resorted to for the purpose of proving that ' unity is strength ;' the aphorism being — as 'Sterne' somewhere oppositely remarks, — ' one of those self-evident truths we have the advantage of hearing every day,' admits probably of nothing in the way of illustration, with wh...
