Police Office. Saturday. Michael Keefc, an incorrigible drunkard, who this day week was sentenced 72 hours to the cells, which punish ment had no effect in deterring him from his beastly pro pensity for drink, appeared bcJore the bench ngain for tho same offence ; this worthless fellow has a wife nnd five young children, he land a small shop in William-street, in this town, where he might have earned an honest livelihood for his young family, but from his habitual drunkenness (were it not for the industry of their afflicted mother) they would now bo starving for want of a loaf, this unfeeling parent having squandered the whole of his littles substance to satisfy his disgusting passion for drink. Michael en deavouring to excuse himself to the bench for his base.con due.t, told his worship that he was very quiet and insulted no one, but was endeavouring to get homo and was lying down on tho broad of his back for that purpose- (we must admit this is a strange nnd very novel modo of tra...

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Molong, Copper Mine, August 28th 1849. Sir, — In your paper of the 25th inst., 1 perceived a report of an inquest held at Molong on an unfortunate individual named George Iboll, at which tho Coroner's Jury in their verdict, caused a censure to be recorded against me, ' for inhumanity in discharging the deceased, and for not hav ing provided proper instruments.' As there arc great discrepancies between the real facts of the case, and the opinion arrived at by the Jury, permit me to call attention to these charges. First of ' inhumanity in discharging the deceased.' Any intention to discharge him never entered my head, but on the contrary, to allow him rations ,at the- Company's expense, until he was able to work. Three or four days after the accident, he came and requested his discharge, when Mr. White says, he advised him to remain until he got well, and his answer was that he ' could get fifty pounds against Christmas, making bricks for Mr. S...

©risutrtl Ctfrt*c^i)fftt1fcKce. To the Editor of Tim Bathurst Advocate. Brucedale, August 27th, 1849. Sia, — 'Answer, a fool according- to his folly, lest he he wise in his own conceit,' is a proverb of one of the wisest men, and occurred to my mind on reading that erudite epistle of your correspondent signed ' A Director,' in your Advocate of the 25 th instant, who, by the bye, is no Director. Ho charges me with want of perspicuity in my letter, yet by his answering it for a certain pliable Direc tor, he charges me with ignorance, and mismanagement. For the edification of this champion of the ' unbusiness like Director,' I copy the ninth clause of tl.e Euenezer Mining Company's Bye Laws, which is as follows: — 'There is to be five 'Directors, and three of which is to form a quorum, and all agreements made by those Direc tors, are to be binding on the Company,' agreeably to which, no agreement or hiring took place, nor were any moneys paid without the conssnt of three Directors and ...

&n Eron Chapel in tlie Soutli Seas. During the last few years, a considerable number of ships having anchored at Apia Harbour, and numbers of foreign residents having settled around the bay, it was ;honght desirable that a small place of worship should be erected for the purpose of holding English service on the sabbath. Sub scriptions were made by the missionaries and foreign residents, which, with sums given by captains and crews, amounted to nearly £60. The John Williams being about to return to Eng land, the committee requested Mr, Mills, the mis sionary at Apia and Captain Morgan, to use every effort to procure an iron chapel, to be brought out in the missionary vessel. On the arrival of the John Williams in London, an appeal was laid be fore the Directors of the London Missionary So ciety as well as the British and Foreign Seamen's Society. We now take the opportunity of ex pressing the sense of gratitude which we feel for the efforts made by the Rev. J. J. Freeman and...

THE SURPLICE QUESTION       BY A BENEDICT. ' A very pretty public stir Is making down at Exeter, About the surplice fashion ; And many bitter words and rude, Have been bestowed upon the feud. And much unchristian passion.

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 8 September 1849

Extracts. Assaulting an Editor. —The inhabitants in. the neighbourhood of the HeraldofB.ce were yes: terday surprised by a pugilistic encounter which took place between Mr. N. L. Kentish and Mr. George Cavenagh, conductor of the Morning Herald. In consequence of some unmerited stric tures upon the conduct, and aspersions on the character of Mr. Kentish, which have appeared in the above journal, he procured a horse whip of tolerably large dimensions, and having awaited the departure of Mr. Cavenagh from the office, he inflicted a severe personal chastisement upon the presumed maligner. A most disgraceful exhibi tion ensued between the belligerents, which ended in the downfall of the conductor, who measured his length in the mud ; two gentlemen, who were passing, rescued Mr. Cavenagh from his assailant, and conducted him to a place of safety. In an hour afterwards a warrant was obtained for the apprehension of Mr. Kentish, but up to a late hour last night it was not executed. It is th...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1849. The Indisoriminato Licensing System. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 8 September 1849

THE BATUURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER S, 1810. Wha Sntllsoriminafco Ssicoaalni,' Sysfcesn. Amongst the many demoralising influences to ?which colonial society has of late been subjected, we know of none calculated to operate more ex tensively — as well as prejudicially — than the in discriminate issue of public-house licenses. In | such an extraordinary degree have these houses been permitted to increase as to almost justify the suspicion that the magistrates have ceased to con sider the circumstance in any other light than that of mere pounds shillings and pence. 'The wants of the neighbourhood — character of the applicants, or eligibility of premises,' appear to be objects of only secondary importance ; since reasoning in this manner — it becomes evident — that of all social evils none ought to be so, espe cially guarded against — as those arising out of a deficient revenue. Under these circumstances, the wholesome and restrictive provisions of the 'Quarter Sessions Act' are ...

CBctrrtual -£0cvcst-mttieucc. ?Tqthe Editor of The Bathuhst Advocate. 229, Elizabeth Street North, Sydney, August 10, 1849. Sir, — Some specimens of copper ore have been brought to me from a mine in the neighbourhood of Bathurst, called 'Cornish Town Mine,' or something similar to that; but the party from whom I had the specimens does not appear to bo positive as to its proper name. The mine referred to, as far as I can learn, is being wrought by a party of six Cornish miners, who are to have one half the copper raised in six months and rations, free of costs for that term, the lords of the soil having the remainder of the ore. Having been born and reared in one of the mining dis tricts of 'England (namely, Cornwall) and having- been a great deal under ground and therefore experienced in the methods employed for working a mine effectually and suc cessfully, and having a ' kindly' feeling for miners, especially if they be Cornish men, lam induced to request you will, through' the med...

The Pawnbroking Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 15 September 1849

The Fawnbroking- Bill. CFrom the Sydney Morninn Herald. ) Although many of the subjects which have been under discussion in the Legislative Council lately, may have been more attractive, there has been none of more importance to the public than the Pawnbroking Bill. — The necessity of some such measure is so generally admitted, that it is un necessary to enter into argument on the subiect. and wo shall therefore make but a few brief observations on the de tails of the Bill itself. It commences by declaring that no person shall act as a pawnbroker without having previously obtained a license, under a penalty of X— . The next clauses point out that licenses arc to bo obtained from a bench of magistrates, who arc to hear and determine applications for them in open court. The fee for the license is left blank. Pawn browkcrs are to have the words ' Licensed Pawnbroker' over their doors. By clause 14, persons forging a pawn broker's license are to pay a penalty of £ — . This offence is on...
