CARCOAR RACES. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 14 December 1850

f CARCOAR RACES. 7b the Editor 6/ the Bathurst Free Press. - Sib,— I was not a little astonished on perceiving a paragraph in. your paper of Saturday last/stating that a meeting of the Cprcoar Race Committee .had been held, at which the prizes for the ensuing races were fixed, as I was not, aware of any such com mittee being at present in existence.' It is the general rale {in districts where there is no established Turf Club) when it is pro- i pose'd to get np races, to call a public meeting %y advertisement, of all parties interested, and at subh meeting (when stewards are not at once appointed) a committee is gen erally formed ,to make .the necessary, ar rangements .which in this ,case I believe was ,not done, and consequently the com mittee which have -taken upon themselves to fix' prizes, '„&-?., are self-constituted and totally unauthorised: Had any public no ttcfibeen given, many parties who take an interest in racing matters would have at tended the meeting;, hut fro...

' ' '? Miscellaneous Extracts. A Vktetran Toper, — A man, 104 years of age, was -fined, in Sti Louis, for drunk enneti, and sent tb tht workhouie. r .lFT' J™St f^-^oTXiCE fought^, in a, tawpijt' .with ' m&h ferocious determination that when' the battle was over nothing could be found remaining of either combatant except his tail, — the marvellous inference to'be drawn therefrom' being, 'of course, that they had devoured each other. This ludicrous anecdote, has, no doubt, been generally looked upon as an absurdity of Jthe Joe Miller class ; but this I conceive to be a mistake. I have not the least doubt that the story of 'the 'mutual destruc tion of the contending cats was an allegory designed to typify the utter ruin to which centuriesof litigation and embroilment on the subject of conflicting rights and privi leges tended to reduce the respective exche quers of the rival municipal bodies of Kilkenny and., Irishtown, — separate corpo rations existing within the liberties of ...

Zibcal Sntelllg-once. 'Accident from. Poison. — On Tuesday morning last,1 a young man named Frost, a carrier from Penrith, lost two ''draught horses worth £20, in the manner 'herein- nfter described. ^Amongst other articles of luggage 'brought- from the metropolis was a cask of arsenic fur Mr. Parker the drug gist, and as afterwards appeared, a quantity of the poison had been shaken through the joints of the cask upon the bed of the dray, by, the motion' of travelling'. After deliv ?ering it to Mr. Parker the dray and horses were put into Mr. Short's ynrd for the uightj when the' horses licked up a quantity of it''ind died the following morning. Con siderable blame i3 attachable 'to the party in Sydney by whom it was forwarded, as we understand that the cask was not marked 'poison',1' neither did he make the carrier acquainted with the nature of its contents eo as to induce caution, but merely warned him to keep the burig-hole upwards to pre vent them from being spilled.

CORNISH SETTLEMENT SMELTING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 14 December 1850

- CORNISH SETTLEMENT SMELTING ?WORKS. , 7b the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. Sir. — Knowing that you are always ready to give insertion in the Free Press to any intelligence that has the least tendency to promote the good of the district. I beg to submit for your approval a brief report of the above-mentioned works. . In April last, Messrs. R. Lane and Glas aon engaged Mr. R. Cock, late superinten dent of the smelting works of H. Ferris, Esq., of Sydney, to erect their works and to conduct the smelting operations at their' mines. Mr. Cock furnished these gentle men with the plans and specifications, when the works were commenced, and the spirited proprietors have now the gratification of seeing them so far advanced as to enable the smelter to commence operations. The bnildinga consist of an engine-house, a shed adjoining to screen the fan-wheel belt3, a building for the casting, and a charcoal shed. There are also two blast furnaces, sur rounded by a strongly built stage, eleva...

PORT PHILLIP. Geelong Rejoicings. — The second edi tion of the grand doings of the enlightened gentlemen of the ,' Commercial Pivot'^ took place on Monday. A procession of Odd-Fellows, Recchabites, children of the schools, and black-fellows .proceeded, to witness the roasting of a bullock presented t!o the Aborigines', ; and the day's amuse ments wound up /with an illumination and a corroboree.7— Argus. - , , ., ,Wopii.— ;In, consequence, ot ,the , late dry s'eason, and the clouds of dust, that have been caused by the hot winds, the suffer-j ings of some, of the w'oolgrowers have been very. considerable, and much badly washed _ wool has made ;its appearance already^ and it is to be feared, to the serious injury-of the settlers.

ittiaoeilEtneotiB Extracts. A witness who was examined last week before a select committee of the House of Lords, respecting the manner in which a petition, purporting to have been signed by '19 000' of the ratepayers of Liverpool, had been got up, confessedvthat, ' He had upon one occasion, gone to,a public house, where, he had sat down and written about 300 of the signatures which appeared at tached to the peition. While he was at that public hou«e, three others of the agents and himself had dipped themselves into a water-butt, so that the committee, when they, arrived at their place of assembly, should believe that they had been walking about all day in the rain.' ' (Loud Laugh ter.), Leigh Hunt's First Oath.— My mother had produced in me such a horror, or, rather, such an intense idea, of even violent words, and of the commonest trivial oath, that, being led one day perhaps by the1 very excess of it, to snatch a ' fearful joy ' in its utterance, it gave me so much remorse that f...

SCENES FROM "LIFE IN THE WOODS." CHENEY THE HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 14 December 1850

SCENES FROM 'LIFE IN THE WOODS.' CHENEY THE HUNTER. You know one expects to hear of hunting achievements upon our western frontier,' where the sounds of civilization have not yet frightened away the wild beasts that haunt the forest. But here, in the heart of the empire state, is a man whose fame is known far and wide as ' the mighty hun ter ;' and if desperate adventures and hair breadth escapes give one a claim to the sobriquet, it certainly belongs to him. Some ten or fifteen years ago, Cheney, then a young man, becoming enamoured of forest life, left Ticonderago, and, with his rifle on bis shoulder, plunged into this then un known, and vast wilderness. Here he lived for years on -what his gun brought him. Finding, in his long stretches through the woods, where the timber is so thick you cannot .see an animal more than fifteen rods that a heavy rifle was a useless burden, he 'had a pistol made, eleven inches in length, stocked like a rifle, which, with his hunting knife and dog, ...
