THE REMEMBRANCES OF A MONTHLY NURSE. LORD WALTER MAXWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

--THE REMEMBRANCES OF ,.A MONTHLY NURSE. --o- LORD WALTER MAXWELL. SEVERY tale oughtito have a little exordium before it, or it would appear bald and naked, as the cottage of my friend, Mrs. Wilmot, in the Albany Road, Camberwell, which she built herself, and thinks the prettiest thing in the world ;-not even a passage or a tiny hall.has she afforded herself I You are in upon her and all *her doings in a moment, before she has time to whisk off her apron, or sweep up her hearth. Not a tree nor a shrub has she there to garnish up her little "villa," as she calls it;--iot even a goose berry-bush, nor a plot of flowers. The baker and the butcher-boy peep over the green curtain of the glass door that opens into her.front parlour, and gaze upon her at their will, in her sublimest acts of duty, or her most unpropitious moments, just as it hap pens. And yet, in such blessed unconscious ness is the dear old soul, that she boasts of the delight she experiences in "living in a house of her ow...

Try ere you Despair!! YOU MAY BE CURED YET!! PILLS AND OINTMENT. WONDERFUL CURE EFFECTED BY HOLLO WA-Y'S PILLS AND OINTMENT. Copy of a letter from Captain E. F. Ferris, Com manding Rampore Forces, Rohilcund, dated January 15, 1849. IR,-As I deem so wonderful a medicine as Professor HOLLOWAY'S is, ought to be well known, I take the liberty of reporting a miraculous cure here under my own eyes. An old woman aged 50 years, had for the last two years been quite bed ridden, having ENTIRELY lost the use of her legs from the hip joints; the limbs had become quite hard, like horn (what the natives call " Soonte.") All feeling quite gone, so murch so, that you might cut her, and she was unconscious of pain. When I prescribed Hlolloway's Treatment and Medicine, her limbs were to all appearance quite DEAD, and with out the slightest feeling. After twelve days perse verance with the Ointment she complained of great painin the limbs, " like the pricking of pins." I still continued the treatment;...

Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

SColonial News. ESCAPE OF TIE TWO MAIL ROBBERS FROMi MAITLAND GAOL. - On Wednesday after noon, about three o'clock, James Davidson and William Smith escaped from Maitland Gaol. It will be remembered that on Mon day, the O10th instant, these two men were convicted of the robbery of the Singleton mail in June last, near Maitland, and David son was sentenced to ten years on the roads, and Smith to eight years on the roads, both to serve the first three .years in irons. From some reason we have not heard, Mr. Tristrem *did not have the two men put in irons at once, probably deferring these and other arrangements until the Circuit Court sittings were over. On the afternoon of Wednesday last, the last day of the sittings, the whole of the prisoners who had not received sentence were brought down to the Court House, but Davidson, Smith, and the other sentenced prisoners, were taken out as usual into the exercise yard, with the remaining prisoners in the gaol. This exercise-yard lays betwee...

SYDNEY MAR·KETS.-FnXDAy , SEPT, 22. [FROM THE PEOPLE'S ADVOCATE ] The wool season for 1840 has now commenced, by the arrival from .l oreton Bay of ten bales of this year's clip, which have been subsequently sold at lld. per lb.; judging from its appearance, both as to quality antl condition, a favourable clip from that district may be augured. Private advises firom England, bring catalogues of the May wool sales hIeld in London, which commenced on the 10th and closed on the 26th of that month:-61023 bales con sisted of Australiun, and 11,?094 from the neighbour. ing colonies, 54506 fromn the Cape, and 782 from the East Indies, altogether 23,855. bales, the whole of which realised the highiest prices obtained at the February sales; after which a further quantity was sold at Liverpool, of about 3000 bales. The wool brokers, in their reports, notice the improved state of the wools come to hand; and as the bulk of later shipments were got up in a still better state, it is to be hoped th...

IMPORTANT EUROPEAN NEWS. CAPITULATION OF THE ROMAN ARMY ! [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

IMPORTANT EUROPEAN NEWS. CAPITULATION OF TIIE IROMIAN ARMY! THE arrival at Port Phillip of a fleet of En glish ships has brought the important intel ligence of the fall of the Eternal city and the questionable honor achieved by lRevolu tionary France in the subjugation of a people struggling for political independence. M. de Lessers who had been sent by the French Government had agreed to a convention preparatory to peace, but General Oudinot, the French Commander-in-Chief had obsti nately refused to acknowledge the proceed ing, and the consequence was a sanguinary engagement between the French forces and the Romans, which after considerable loss on both sides terminated in the defeat of the latter. A telegraphic despatch announced that the Romans had been compelled to ca pitulate, and that the French were in pos session of the city, on the 5th June. So : much for the peace and non-interference doctrines of republican France. The Canadian news is to the 31st May: all was quiet; the ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

:MISCELLANEOUS. HIonntIBLE EsBRACE.-I had taken a hasty leap over a small rut, atd alighting on something soft and slippery, fell prostrate. Ere I could recover myself, I felt something twist round my body, and roll me over and over. In a moment it occurred to me that I was within the folds of a serpent. I was squeezed so tightly that I had only time to give one loud scream for assistance, and instinctively raise my arms upwards, in the desire to defend my head and face; being aware, from what I had heard from others, that the serpent would endeavour to make a twist round my neck. I could hear the monster hissing and playing round my face, but could not see, either throogh pain or horror, through my situa tion. I gradtlually felt mny ribs bending beneatih its cruel gripe, and imagined that all was over with me lwhen, to my inexpressible relief, I heard the voices of mny friends, one of whom, with his cutlass, at one blow, severed the monster's head fromn its body; it still, however,...

MANEROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

IIANEZiOO. ON Monday last, we were present at a Court of lRe quests, held in Queanbeyan. Various and curious were the actions discussed, prosecuted, and dte fended, alternately, as the case may be, by Mr. Walsh, of Goulburn, and another legal gentleman, a Mr. Mlurral, both of whom displayed much tact and discrimination in the several parts they acted for their clients; and, though strange it may ap pear, it is not the loess true, that the complainanut and defendant, in each dispute, left the Conurt with an honest conviction that their case received impar tial consideration. We noticed many wealthy and respectable settlers there on that day from the satr rounding neighbourhood, who, in conjunmtion withl the no less respectable town residents, stamped a seal of dignity on that. busy little hamlet :that :i more likely to be augmented than lessened or re moved. Great was thle influx of country customers into the several well furuished stores, those of Mr. Myers in particular seemed to h...

COLONIAL OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

COLONIAL OFFICE. [From the Weekly Chronicle.] IF the Colonial Office were as competent and successful as we,know it is otherwise by fatal experience, we should still have to weigh its results with the expenditure which its policy entail upon the mother country. Even then we should condemn it, if we found that its performances were utterly inadequate to the sums which they cost us. As it is, the ar guments for economy and retrenchment are thrown into a scale already borne down by the evidence of its follies and accumulated blunders. The Co]pnial Office, speaking compara tively, is the most costly nuisance or nullity we maintain. For what it does badly, or does not at all, we pay twice as much as we should have to expend if we permitted the colonies to govern themselves. The salaries of the gentlemen at the house in Downing street are a most inconsiderable item in the saving which the country would effect, if colonial affairs, as distinguished from impe rial, were withdrawn from their...

FREE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

FREE TRADE. .; [From a London Paper, June 4, 1849.] To be consistent to render free trade a reality, we must have a fiscal as well as a commercial revolution, and abolishing customs and ex cise, raise the whole revenue by a direct tax on property. But will the propertied classes consent to such an arrangement? We think not, considering that the attempt to raise the income tax from 3 to 5 per cent. was so strenuously resisted that the Government was compelled to abandon that meditated measure. It seems then that the theory of free trade, sound and rational in the abstract, cannot be introduced into a deeply indebted couniitry, for the very indebtedness renders freedom of choice and action altogether im possible. Those who wish to deceive them selves may adopt a mere word, and think they have got hold of an idea, but the reality eludes tleir grasp, since free trade is incom patible with customs and excise. The two cannot co-exist. We would further distinguish between free trade and fr...

SPORTING IN INDIA — ALLIGATOR HUNTING, &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

SPORTING IN I~NIA - ALLIGATOR HUNTING, &e. Hunting the alligator is thus spiritedly described by Captain Basil Hall. The In dian sporting meet took place at the Valley, near Trincomalee, was got up for the Admi ral's express amusement and was performed by a corps of Malays in the British service -the 1st Ceylon regiment:-" Very early in the morning on the 22nd of September, the whole regiment had stripped off their uniform, and every other stitch of clothing, save the half short trowsers and a kind of waistcoat. In place of a firelock, each bore in his hand a slender pole five or six feet in length, to the extremity of which was at tached the bayonet of the musket. His only other weapon was the formidable Malay creese, a sort of dagger, or small ed ition of the waving two-edged sword with which the archangel Michael is armed in Raphael's picture. of the expulsion of our first parents from Paradise. Soon after the commander-in-chief came to the ground the regiment was divided...

Country News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) COFgL3CTO~i ILLEGAL OnISTRUC'lON's.-The peace of the inba bitants of this village was disturbed a few days ago, through the false report of a mano in the employ of the Reverend Mr. Cartwrighl, that a party ot men, consisting of horse and foot armed with such wea pons as axes, tomnhawks were wending their way to Mr. Cartwright's premises for the purpose of des troying the fences. We cannot say whiether or tot, the forti8fications were strengthened on the occasion, or any other means were resorted to for tile dtefete of the place. It appears tlhat the report origitnated in a threatened remonstrance against tile in fraction of what has justly been considered the rightsof the inhabitants, Mr. Cartwright having erected fenees across the streets, under pretence that Mr. T'. A. Murray had made him a free gift of the land. It is impossible to suppose that that gentleman would first sell the allotmeuts and afterwards make a ple sent of the street ...

To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald Sia,-My friends have frequently called my atten tion to the fact of many retired military men in the enjoyment of pensions holding lucrative Govern ment situations; and they have universally con,. demned so monstrous and unjust a practice as that of bestowing appointments on men whose only claim consists in having been worn out in thie ser vice of her Msjesty-God bless hIer. Truly, Mr. Editor, in the eyes of one like myself, unacquainted with the system on which Government jobbery is conducted, it does appear strange thiat when a mau is worn out, and has a pensiob granted him ill order to keep him from tile poor.house, he should be in, stalled in a situation the duties of which are per. haps'ten times as labonous as those he left. 1 have heard that there is a rule prohibiting this practice. Perhaps yaow can inform me if this is the case. In penning these few remarks, I am actuated by no dislike towards the military in general; but every one of ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 29 September 1849

-0 To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald." Sxs,-Your correspondent 'Gaffer,' after having so dealtv with the Land question as suited his own views, took up that of Quit-rents. Hle alleges that .grantees agreed to pay quit-rent in cousideration of so much' co?vict labor and so 'ruch land given them by the government. By joining convict labor and laud grants together, he accuses the govern .me'nt of injustice for demanding quit rents after the cessation of convict assignment. This plausible pretext of his may pass current as truth with many, who will not enquire into the merits of the case; it amounts to an attempt to make out a case of op *pression against the governtment, in which if he could succeed he would carry all before him. ,But this piece of sophistry is detected and exposed by the fact that every colonist to whom convicts were assigned agreed only to maintain and clothe them in, copsideration of the services which they ren dered. Therefore as it does not appear that the go...

TiiE'boy stood on the burning deck, Whence all but him ihad fled; The flame that lit the battle's wreck, S' horieiound him o'er the dead. Yet beautiful and bright he stood, As born to rule the storm: A creature of heroic blood, A proud, though child.like form. The flames roll'd on-he would not go Without his father's word; That father, faint in death below, His voice no longer heard. SHe called aloud:-" Say, father, say, If yet my task is done ?" He knew not that the chieftain lay Unconscious of his son. '~Speak, father !" once again hecried, "If I may yet be gone ! And"-but the booming shots replied, And fast the flames rolled on, Upon his brow he felt their breath, And in his waving hair, And looked.from that lone post of death In still, but brave despair. And shouted but once more aloud, ."My father ! must I stay ?" While o'er him fast through sail and shroud, ...
