AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 March 1852
AMERICA. The New. York Correspondent of the San Francisco Herald gives the follow ing account of 'British outrage on the American Flag : — ' You will receive by the mail which leaves here this afternoon, the part'culars of a gross outrage that was perpetrated re cently on the steamship Prometheus, at San Juan de Nicaragua, by an English vessel of war. By an arrangement con cluded by Captain Vanderbilt, his vessels were to be exempt from all port charges at San Juan. That place being claimed as part of the Mosquito territory, the British authorities there, in violation of their treaty stipulations with the United States, de murred to Captain Vanderbilt's arrange ments? with the Nicaraguan Government;, and demanded port dues from the PromeT theus; This was refused, and that Vessel steamed up, and wos proceeding on her course, when she 'was overhauled by a British .vessel of war, which .fired, several snots' over and .near her.

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 March 1852
CHINA. (From the Argus. ) A file of Shanghne journals has reached us, from which Wa extract the following items of news: — Letters from Foochow, received a day or two ago, state that the great Confucian temple of that city was burnt to the ground on the 29th August, just after the Manda rins liad left it, where they had been wor shipping. The Lientenant-Governor of Fookeen, the celebrated author of the recent Univer sal Geography, in which be displayed so much knowledge of foreign countries, has been summoned to Peking, and there is a report, believed in some quarters,- that His Excellency has been disgraced by his Im perial master. If so, his geographical work had likely something to do with his down fall. The bitter hostility of the Emperor and his advisers towards everything fu reign is becoming more and more appa rent. ... The Nor tli Cliina Herald gives a very interesting account of a hurricane on ty phoon, experienced in the P. and O. Co.'s steamer Pekin, on her voyage from Ho...
BRITISH EXTRACTS. KOSSUTH. AN ORIGINAL BIOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 March 1852
BRITISH EXTRACTS. '';.' , KOSSUTH. . . ; ; ^ '.-:.,'? AN ORIGINAL BIOGRAPHY. ' . (Written expressly for (he Weekly Chroniik.) Louis Kossuth' was born in Zcmplin (one of the northern counties of Hungary,) during the' sixth year of this century. His family, though of noble descent, were decayed in respect to. worldly wealth ; yet honour,' tnUiri't,' nnd intrepidity re mained in.thcir, blood, which more than:counter bnlanccd the Questionable' loss of that ' barbaric pomp' which is so much moro likely toicorrnpt than- to invigorate its possessors. Tho father of Kossuth was an officer in the Austrian army. As such ho served through tho French wars, nnd freely shed his blood on the fatal field of Liepsic for what was then deemed (alas ! how vainly !) tho cause 'of nations oppressed by tho military autocracy of Napoleon ! In early childhood, tho young Louis (or Lajos ns it' is in Hungarian)1 evinced the utmost precocity of understanding, coupled with an. unbounded sweetness of dis position...
GOLD CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 March 1852
GOLD CIRCULAR. The long and tantalizing break in our English ?arrivals, and tho sudden change in onr'Baiiking institutions, combine to render the .market for gold as unsettled and unsatisfactory as could well be imagined. Tho chief consequence is, a general indisposition to sell on tho part of that largo class o'f practical diggers who can afford to hold their dnst for tho influx of now cnpital,-. and who have sufficient foresight to see that it will certainly and speedily arrive. The smallnoss of the quantity which arrived this week from our mines ? is con firmatory of the correctness of this view ; and, as a further evidence,' I may instance tho withdrawal of a largo parcel of- 1700 ounces at my Ealo this morning, rather than sell nt current rates. The lot sold, it will be seen, reached only to a very low 'figuru ; nor, till somo decided change is effected in our monetary relations, can any ma terial improvement bo expected, T1i'b however, in thonntural course of things, is absolu...

Tho lowered / -»r the river, now an insignificant streamlet, has drawn many of its former population from the i . dry diggings in tho mountains and back Kulncs, whither their submerged bed claims had driven them to earn n subsistence until the .jc turu of a inoro favourable season.

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT" &nbsp; &nbsp; WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1852. &nbsp; &nbsp; WILFUL MURDERS AT RYLSTONE AND &nbsp; THE TURON. ' the most atrocious of all crimes appears to be alarmingly on the increase in this and the neigh- bouring districts. No sooner is the history of one murderous transaction completed than the chro- &nbsp; nicler of passing events is called upon to record the horrible details of another. Sometimes a &nbsp; &nbsp; deadly lust for revenge seems to be the actu- ating motive, at others, a pure love for gold, and &nbsp; not unfrequently we see combined, as in the case of Whilmore, an unlawful thirst for gain, and a wolfish appetite for human life. This week it falls to our lot to record two crises of wilful mur- &nbsp; der in which, judging by appearances, the agents of death appear to have been stimulated by the first and second motives referred to.

COLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. FOREST CREEK DIGGINGS &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Correspondent of the Geelong Ad- &nbsp; vertiser.) &nbsp; &nbsp; 25th February, 1852. &nbsp; &nbsp; Tents are still on the move down the creek. Barker's Creek near its junction with Forest Creek is now the favourite camping ground, and it is at present a most &nbsp; &nbsp; pleasant location, but in another week it will be too crowded, and then come butcher's shops with their attendant stench. There was a time when tools of all kinds could be bought here cheaper than in Mel- &nbsp; bourne or Geelong, but it is not so now ; a good cradle is hard to find at any price, indifferent ones are made on the spot out of old boxes, &c., but I would advise all intending diggers to purchase all requisite tools in town. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A goodly number of overlanders are, dropping in ...
