THE BATMljmfm SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1851. 'MAGNA EST VEKITAS El PH2EVALEB1T.' MR. HE ATHORN'S LETTER. We beg to direct our readers' attention to' Mr. Heathorn's strictures on the ' Tale of a Tub,' which will be found in the; sixth page of to-day's issue, where it. will be seen that a merciless flagellation has been in flicted on the ' careless or unscrupulous editor' with a treacherous memory.

Having taken our positions on opposite sides of the tub, sailor fashion, it is to-be presumed that we shall receive English fair play — a clear stage and no favor.

HAYNAU AND THE AUSTRIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 February 1851

.HAYNALT AND THE AUSTRIANS. (From the Examiner) The Times has given, under the head of 'General Haynau and the press of Germany and Austria, various animadversions on the late assault. The Allgemeine Zeitung, the Times of Germany, after taking a very exag gerated view of the affair, asks :— . ?'Are not the English afraid of being served in the same way — the English, who ?every year spoil our beautiful landscapes by the oddity of their appearance and the ' re finement' of their manners ?.' And it puts the case of Sir II. Ward io the Ionian Islands, asks where slumbers the wrath of our press. Sir H. Ward handled miscreants with a severity we are not pre pared to defend ; but there is no charge against him of sanctioning, countenancing, or suffering the flogging of women. Another paper states : — «' In the' Cafe Daum,' which is haunted by our officers, there was, amidst the por traits of other royal personages, a portrait of Queen Victoria. I say it was there, for it ?was yesterday as...

Original Contribution. LANDLORD AND TENANT'S ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 March 1851

. -&xiix,ixml iKonttftutfoir. - LANDLORD AND TENANT'S ACT. It is singular that the learned profession should only have recently discovered that the law of Landlord and Tenant as it stands in England, relative to distress for rent, is not applicable to New South Wales. No sales, under levieB for distresses for rent, can legally take place unless the dis tress can be appraised according to the pro visions of 2 William and Mary, sec. 1, c. 5. and as that enactment is not in force in this Colony, no appraisements can be made, nor- sales take place. The landlord h therefore nearly deprived of hia summary remedy for rent, although he may im pound the goods.off the tenant's premises, but of what service are the goods to him unless they can be sold P . The recent discovery above alluded to rnny entail, however, a serious and grievous injury on many landlords. In this Colony, for .many years pa9t, distresses for rent have been made, and sales effected, by landlords who believed that ...

The personal property was sworn to be under five millioria. Under five millions I Why, five millions yields, at a rate of five per cent interest, an annual income of not Ic33 than two hundred and fifty thousand a year. Not more than two or three men in England are known to possess such incomes. And then the rate ftt which it mast be in creasing ! The Arkwrights don't live like Niigents.

BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 March 1851

BUSH FIRES. {From the Portland Guardian.) Yesterday forenoon was a period of extra ordinary heat, and we are sorry to say, of. a calamity also. The heat from 11 o'clock, a.m., until after noon was most oppressive ; a hot wind blowing from the N.N.W. in a most furious manuor. At this time the thermometer «tood for an hour by one glass at M2 degrees, while by two others it reached 116 degrees in the sun.' Ti?e:dust in tlie 'streets was most suffocating,' penetrating into the smallest crevices, aud filling the hoiiees, 3Cn consequence of the exdessive heat and bash fires, the last day of- the races was postponed, until this day, when they duly came off. About 42 o'clock a bush fire in the vicinity of the town began to rage with the utmost fury, 'It sprang up near the race-course, and through the vio lence of the hot wind threatened to consume the booths, and to envelope the psrsons who had assembled there iu the flames, before time could be aflorded them to escape.
