ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Buthurst Free Press and Mining Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 7 April 1852

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENT; To t/ie Editor of the Batliur&t Free Prestsand , .... Mining Journal. Upon perusing tho roport of the Orange races which appeared in your paper of Satnrday last, and the Sydney Morning Herald of an earlier date, I perceive that a charge is made against Mr. De Clouett, as owner of Stranger, and Mr. Lee, as owner of Marquis, of conspiring together for tho purpose of putting £40 into the pocket of the latter, and the writer says, not only is this his own opinion, but that of many moro in his neighbourhood. If such be tho case, I have a piece of advice to tender both to him and them, which is this — nover dream about getting up races again. Until tho appearnnco of the reports in ques tion, I had always been accustomed to regard tho sporting gentlemen of Orango as liberal and public spirited, and as possessing a little of the right sort of metal. I did think that thoy at all events were very properly devoid of all thnt little local cxclusiveness which very...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE STEALING OF GOOD NAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 7 April 1852

J1RIT1SH JJXTUCTS; THE STEALING OF GOOD NAMES. (From the London Examiner, December 6.) On the eve of M. Bonaparte's treason he obtained from the Bank of Franco a million under false pretences, tho employment of which was doubtless to corrupt the soldiery, a pour boir for the bravos of the night. But a worse misappropriation than this is chargeable against M. Bonaparte. He has stolen men's names ns well as the public money, nnd the power he is tyrannically wielding. , Plis list of men who have given their adhesion to an administrative commis sion is a figment ; it has dwindled down from 200 to a much smaller number, and a specimen of the reliance to be placed on it;will be found in M. Leon Faucher's let ter which we subjoin, with admiration of its spirit, and the just and keen rebuke, it conveys to the man, in the ftrlUblown inBO lenc of ill-gotten power, : 'P.aris, December 3, 1851. .

SYDNEY NEWS. PRODUCE CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 7 April 1852

SYDNEY NEWS, ; PRODUCE CIRCULAR. (From Ike Empire.) : Although tho Auction Sale of last Thursday exhibited, moro confidence, and a better spirit, the' 'prices realised for wool do not justify us in quoting an advnnco save in ono or two trifling lots. On tho whole, however, thero was a much better feeling shewn, and every lot offered was sold, including some parcels that were bought tho weok beforo. - Tallow was excessively dull, and it was, with great difficulty that 26s. .per cwt. was got for a primo parcel of beef of Mr. Bourne Kussefl'g boiling, whilst a lot, equal in quality, but in less saleable sort of casks, bronght only 25s. Cd., the lowest rate at which good tallow has been sold since it becaino an exportable article This de pression is tho result of very indifferent accounts from home, and tho continued depression iu tho exchanges. ? , Hides nnd sheepskins remain as before— both meeting with ready salo'at good prices.

Cbinebb Gardbning. — It is well known that Mr. Mort is devotedly attached to flowers, and his garden possesses some of tho most choice, beautiful, nnd valuable in the colony. The ob tnining nnd cultivation of these, of course, entails upon him a considerable expense, but bis floral enthusiasm renders him regardless of this ; ho cares not what ho pays for labour for the proper training and cnlturo of his favourites.
