ANONYMOUS CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 January 1851

ANONYMOUS COR R ESPQN JDENClE. The following characteristic communica' tion has been handed over to us for pub-, lication by G. H. Green, Esq., Commis sioner of Crown Lands for this district; and Wit would be; a pity that the style should lose one. particle of itsraciness and beauty, we give it verbatim, et literatim. Afraid of acting in an open and straightforward man ner, the cowardly scribe enshrouds his de licious' name in a blank, and for his own particular benefit no doubt would privately subject an individual to prosecution whom he hud not the manhood openly to oppose. It is a prevalent but an erroneous impres-; sion that any portion of disgrace attaches to a person who, upon principle, w.ould bring an offender against the law to justice, and one the step taken by Mr. Green is cal culated to rectify. Laws in general are en acted for the good of the whoje community, and not of isolated parts, and in a healthy state of society every man would become one of its guardians. If by....

SEA-ISLAND COTTON SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 January 1851

SEA-ISLAND COTTON/SEED.' (From the Press. J Most of our readers are probably aware that a large quantity of cotton seed has recently been sent out per the ship Countess of M into, from Liverpool, to the Rev. Dr. Lang, M.C. It has been sent at. the sug gestion of certain influential members of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce, with a view to the carrying out of a great ex periment in cotton cultivation in this; colony; the result of which will. in all' likelihood be of transcendaot importance' to New South Wales as well as ?? to the whole manufacturing interest at home. The seed is entirely of the Sea Island,1 or most valuable description of American cotton. It is so named . from its growing on a range of low islands parallel to the coast line of South Carolina and Georgia. The Americans are very unwilling to allow the seed to.be exported, from a wish to monopolise the valuable trade in the arti cle ; but as Mr. Isaac Low, of Liverpool, the head of the -house through whom it was se...

ON PHYSICAL EDUCATION. No. II.—INFANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 January 1851

t^NT PHYSICAL EPUCAfiON. v No. ?'' II.-^-Infanc y. JBatrli hope .this sliort digression -is par ldnabW|;aha will now follow the subject I irst' entered oh.' A great many of the practices which were- formerly in fashion with respect to the management of infants, have been aban doned, and an improvement effected in these modern times. ' ?Instead of the, complete swathing or en casing of the body, whereby the free use of the limbs and head were prevented, the infant how enjoys unrestrained exercise of its muscles, as far as its feeble and limited power's are capable of. ' This wa3 long the universal custom/and and in some countries, even, in unenlight ened and civilized Europe, it still prevails. I have lately seen the practice adopted here, in a German emigrant fa mil yy on the Cooinbing. estate, arid judge from that it is the. prevailing custom of German states.

COTTON TRADE IN, THE UNITED' . - , STATES. {American Correspondent of the Manchester , , Examiner and Times.) The co-operative and private manufactu ring firms ini this country are working short', time, and some are working none. Since' my last, several mills at Pittsburg and elsei. where/iave been closed. for the present, and some have reduced wages' from ten to twenty per cent. At Lancaster, Lancaster County, in this state, where they make good stout domestics, wages have been re-~ duced twenty per cent, within this present month. Manufacturing has extended con siderably in Pennsylvania during the last three years, chiefly, if not altogether, by joint-stock companies, who have obtained charters with special privileges from the state legislature. 'They are all got up on the jobbmg-system, whereby a few leading men and commission houses reap the bene fits accruing therefrom.

STEAM COMMUNICATION (VIA , PANAMA) WITH AUSTRALIA. CFrom the Times, 9th Sep.)
