Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 28 December 1850

Xiocal Intelligence. The Chops. — After a very strict inquiry we are glad to be ab'e to stale that the wheat crop is in a much b tter state than was generally imagined. The impressions concerning it have hitheito been formed by appearances in the vicinity anQ within a few miles of the town, where they are suffi ciently encouraging. We have obtained intelligence from various portions of Camp bell's liiver. the Fish River, King'sPlains. Blackman's Swamp, Winburndale Creek, and all the principal grain growing locali ? ties, and although there are some cases of 1otal and more of partial failure, Ave can state with certainty that upon the whole there will be better than half a crop, which with the wheat of last year's growth still on hand, will place us out of the t reach ,of scarcity. Corn and potatoes except in sheltered situations have failed in many places, partly from frost and partly from blight by the hot winds which have Ltterly prevailed. In others we learn that there is a prosp...

TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 28 December 1850

TO OUR READERS. We are again1 compelled to re sort to the unpleasant task of apo logising for, the barrenness of the present publication in local news and other original matter. With, abundance of both in hand, we are compelled from causes - which hardly admit of explanation, to get out to-day's number as well as we are able. - The occasional troubles of a country newspaper office cannot be well understood by those unacquainted with the tracle, but they ,may rest assured that if-iiircumstantiilly explained, our readers could not in common humanity to the proprietor refuse to accept the will for the deed: We shall endeavour to make up for' present deficiencies in our next. In the meantime we wish them all a happy new year.
