SINGLE COMBAT WITH THE SIKHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

SINGLE COMBAT WITH THE SIKHS. [From the Edinburgh Witness.] [THE following letter, written by a medical officer from the Camp at Mooltan, will be read with interest.-It is dated " Camp before Mooltan, January 24, 1849.] " I was coming home from the trenches during the night, a few days before the fall of the fort. Several large shots from the fort fell near us, one so near that the servant picked the ball up after it fell near my horse. One of our men who had been wounded, got worse, and I stayed to bind up his wound as well as I could, and then sent him the nearest road to the regimental hospital. I was then going quietly on, admiring the beautiful starlight, as I thought I must be very near the detachment which had marched on towards our camp. While riding quietly along, I heard a noise, and at the same time saw a Sikh rush forward - and seize the bridle of my horse, while several,, others darted from behind some jungle round me and on all sides. The man, a tall powerful soldier, ...

NEWS FROM BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

NEWS FROM BRITAIN. [From the South Australian Register.] By the arrival of the Anna 11aria our news from England is brought down to the 12th July. Although the Queen's visit to Ireland was not to be one of State, it was evident, from the preparations, that her Majesty's recep tion would be most honorable as well as cor dial. The Irish state prisoners had at last em barked on board the Swift war schooner, on Tuesday, 10th July. Their destination was New South Wales. There had been a gathering of 600 Ri bandmen, armed with pikes in Armagh. They were however prevented from doing mischief by a small party of police. After the lapse of five years, the question of the Irish Church has been once more raised in the House of Commons. On the 10th July, upon the motion of Mr. Osborne, the old controversy regarding the temporal ities of that overgrown establishment was revived. The hon. member for Middlesex endeavoured in a most able speech to recall attention to the position in which the ques ...

ROBESPIERRE ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

ROBESPIERRE ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [From his Life by G, II. Lewis.] IN early life Robespierre resigned his situ ation as a judge in the criminal court at Arras from disgust at having to condemn a murderer to death ; and at a subsequent period we find him giving expressions to his sentiments on the subject of such inflictions in the follow ing words :-The news having been brought to Athens that some citizen at Argos had been doomed to death, the people ran to the temple and prayed to the gods to turn aside the Argives from such cruel and fatal thoughts. I am about to pray, not the gods, but the legislators, who should be interpre ters of those eternal laws which the Deity has implanted in the human heart, to efface from the code of the French those laws of blood which command judicial murders, and which our feelings and the new consti tution alike repel. I will prove that the punishment of death is essentially unjust; and secondly, that it has no tendency to repress crimes; and third...

STATE OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

STATE OF FRANCE. [From a London Jonrna:l, July 6.] THE reign of terror, under the precious sys ":tem of Louis Bonaparte, Odillon Barrot, the jesuit De Falloux, and Co., still continues: the prisons are full of political victims, the Democratic press is suspended, and, day af teir day, does the Attorney-General demand leave to prosecute more members of the mountain. The National Assembly over awved and amazed, gives its consent to these requisitions without scarcely having the cou rage or patience to examine into them and thus the reactionaries are having there full swing. The working-classes, completely de firauded out of the Republic, for which they fought and bled, behold a tyrant in the garb of a President, and feel the despotism of a Nero in the person of their chief magistrate. This is not the commonwealth which the French nation hoped to see arise upon the ruins of the Orleans throne. But the events must not be ascribed to any fault in the Re publican system itself, but must b...

Country News. MANEROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

Country News. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) MV£ANEIOO. MIfRACULOUs ESCAPvE.-WeVo have just been favoured with an account of a most alarming incident, which was nearly attended with the loss of six human lives. The occurrence took place yesterday, at noon, and happened to a woman, with a large family of young children, who was on her way from Sydney to her home, in the vicinity of the Snowy River. The persons who imparted the information were, as it would seem, instruments in the hands of Providence to prevent the names of those whom they preserved from being enrolled in the devouring re cords of the Southern Obituary. The facts are simply these:-Two men and their wives, from whom this information is collected, were travelling together to the New Country, each man having a tilted cart; they baited for an hour or so at a place called the Sand Creek, about half way between Mickleago Plains, the estate of MIr. Mitchel, and Mr. Smitlh's Rob Roy publie-.house. Whilst sitting on the grass...

To the Editor of the 'Goulburn Herald.' [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

To the Editor of the ' Goulburn HIerald.' Silt,-Your impartial publication some time ago, made a very palpable allusion to the neglected state of the Episcopal Church for neglect of cobwebs and dust being removed, which appears to be still worse. In addition to the above unpleasant complaint, a very general rumour prevails of the want of any at tention to strangers, who like myself may occasi onally go or wish to go " to hear the word of God." In other places of public worship wherever I have visited (and which I believe to be generally the case) a person is in attendance to shew strangers, especially females into some seat, but this is not the case at St. Saviour's. In fact I have heard that strangers have been ejected after taking a seat, by those who consider that they have a right to do so, because they rent, though they do not occupy, a whole pew. One would think that when a pew is not crowded there could be no objection in common politeness to a stranger having a seat and not ...

[ADVERTISTEMENT.1-- A GENTLEMAN ?EGAINED THE Us,. OFsHis LIMBS BY THE EFFECT OF HOLLO. WAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLs.-Mr. John Cock, a highly respectable gentleman, residing at Madron, near Penzance, had been confined to his house for a considerable period from a fearful attack of pa ralysis. He had reeourse to the best.medical aid, but to no purpose, indeed, in such cases the usual treatment never does any good, hlie then resolved upon trying Holloway's Ointment and Pills, and to the surprise of all who knew his deplorable state, these wonderful medicines alone restored him to perfect health and the complete use of his limbs.

Original Correspondence. BERRIMA. To the Editor of the "Goulburn Herald" [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

BERRIMA. To the Editor of the " Goulburn Herald" Smn,-Having observed that the columns of your journal are open to the just claims of all parties, I request the favor of your inserting these few lines which I have been induced to write, in consequence of the reduction which is to take place next year in the police of this district, and having this dpy been informed that before the end of the present month the few troopers of the Mounted Police hitherto stationed here are to be disbanded and the Barracks left to the civil power. The district of Berrima, I find on reference to the map, is upwards of 50 miles in length, and nearly the same in breadth. To the northward are ranges of mountains which some few years back were much infested by bushrangers ; the last gang of whom were ferrited out by the mounted police and the Berrima and Hartley Police some three years back. To the southward we have the Shoal haven gullies which have also been places of re Sfuge for the evil disposed. To th...

Select Poetry. 'TIS MEMORY'S VOICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

-0 'TIS MEMORY'S VOICE. -o 'Tis memory's voice, in saddened accents breaking A dirge o'er days departed; 'Tis memory's hand, a mournful chaplet wreathing, To bind the pale brow of the weary-hearted. The past appears in full array before us ; The sound of much loved voices, Infancy comes in sadder cadence o'er us, And, for a while deceived, the heart rejoices. 'Tis memory's voice-how oft it comes in sadness, Breathing a doleful warning, That e'en the blessed time of youthful gladness, Must feel the coming of a joyless morning; Yet there are times when memory hath the power To cheat the heart of sorrow, And, as we think of some far faded hour, Some little solace to our griefs we borrow. Still-though we seek in vain those smiling faces, We loved in days departed; Though we may weep to see those vacant places, Once filled by beauty and the merry hearted; It is a solemn joy to know, though never On earth, those forms may meet us, There is a hope that we, with them for ever, May dwell in ...

THE ARGYLE MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

THE ARGYLE MINE. IT is universally admitted that " seeing is believing," and those who don't believe be cause they don't see when they have an op-. portunity of seeing, have themselves to thank for remaining in a state of doubt and uncertainty. For our own part we are al ways anxious to make our eyes the tutors of our minds when they can be so enlisted in clearing up what appears to be too marvel lous to be believed on the representation of a second party, and if we do not always pursue this course of informing ourselves it is not from the want of the wish, but the diffieulties which lie in the way of its con summation. The existence of iron ore in the neigh bourhood of Shelley's Flats was noticed in our issue of the 25th August upon the au thority of a gentleman whose claim to vera city we had no reason to doubt; but when it was represented to us that the surface specimens-specimens which could be picked up by no other effort than that of stooping -contained to all appearance, both...

WOOL AND TALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

WOOL AND TALLOW., WooL and Tallow are the most interesting topics for newspaper comment in this colony; and any information which a journal can afford on these subjects, is sure to be eagerly devoured by the eyes of nine-tenths of its readers. We confess that we partake in the interest apparent to this subject, and we are constantly on the alert for the latest au thentic news respecting the state of the home Smarkets. The welfare of the colony is as it were hinged on these articles of commerce; and any fluctuation in price and demand is felt in a most perceptible manner by all classes. May we hope for a better state of things-may we hope the day is not far dis tant when the prosperity of the colony will not depend upon the success of one branch of industry-s6 fluctuating, and necessarily so fluctuating in its results-but that capital ;and labour may be divided between it and the other branches of industry which our adopted land is capable of fostering. By the last advices from Londo...

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1840. BEFORE J. F. M'ARTUnR, Esq., J. P.; and Lieu tenant BALL, J.P. HIORSE STEALINro.-Patrick Devitt was brought up this morning charged with haviug a stolen horse in his possession. The Chief Constable stated that in the month of September last, a valuable mare was stolen from the paddock of Captain Rossi, at Rossiville; and owing to some information he received, he wrote a letter to the Chief Constable of Bathurst, which led to the apprehension of the prisoner, on the 11th ultimo, at Capiti, with the stolen horse in his possession. The horse had not as yet been forwarded to Goul. burn, he (Mr. M'Alister) therefore prayed that the prisoner might be remanded until that day week, to give time for the production of the animal, and the arrival of Corporal Riley, who apprehended the pri soner. The prisoner was remanded accordingly. HIRED SERVANTS' AcT,-Two young men named Willoughby, appeared to prefer a claim of wages against their master, J. Chatfield, Esq., J. P...

THE BUNGONIA BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

THE BUNGONIA BENCH. IT appears that the Bungonia Bench forms no exception to the general rule of magiste rial stupidity, exhibited by the Courts of Petty Sessions in the bye-towns of the co lony. Chance-the merest chance-has given us an opportunity of putting on record a decision, the importance of which, whether taken as a rule for the guidance of mushroom Benches, or as a proof of the efli ciency of hap-hazard-made Magistrates, is be yond the shadow of a doubt. By reference to a report of the last sit tings of the Small Debts Court at Bun gonia, it will be seen that the Rev. Mr. Woodd was summoned, by Mrs. Sceales, for the balance of an order drawn by one of his ser vants on him, in favor of the plaintiff. The rev. defendant did not appear, but a letter had been sent by him to the Bench denying the debt. The plaint was dismissed! In the " good old times," we are told, a scratch of the pen to a Bench of Magistrates was productive of the same effect as the most conclusive evidence g...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 November 1849

-0 SERIOUS ACCIDENT.-On Monday last, as Henry Knapp, a bullock driver in the employ of James Kinghorne Esq. of the Wollondilly was returning from the cattle station at Borrowa to the farm near Goulburn, he received a kick on the leg from one of the bollocks he was driving, which caused a frac. ture of the bone. The unfortunate man succeeded after a long struggle in getting into his dray and though suffering the greatest tortures managed to drive about six miles towards home. By dint of continual cooeing he made his deplorable situation known to some men working in Mummel paddock, who quickly came to his assistance and drove the team to Mr. Kinghorne's farm, from which place Ihe was removed to the hospital next day. He is doing as well as can be expected. ACcIDENT.-On Sunday last, while Mr. S. Davis, watchmaker, Sloane-street, was exercising a young spirited pony, near the Catholic Chapel, the animal commenced buck-jumping most violently.and suc ceeded in throwing Mr. D. over his hea...

-0 REMONSTRANCE WITH THE SNAILS. Yn little snails, With slippery tails, Who noiselessly travel Along this gravel, By' a silvery iath of slime unsightly, I learn that you visit my pea-rows nightly. Felonious your visit, I guess ! And I give you this warning, That, every morning, I'll strictly examine the pods; And if one I hit on, With slaver or spit on, Your next meal will be with the gods. I own you're a very ancient race, And Greece and Babylon were amid; You have tenanted many a royal dome, And dwelt in the oldest pyramid; The source of the Nile !-oh! you have been there! In the ark was your floodless bed; On the moonless night of Marathon You crawl'd o'er the mighty dead; But still, though I reverence your ancestries, I don't see why you should nibble my peas. The meadows are yours-the hedgerow and brook, You may bathe in their dews at morn; By the aged sea you may sound your shells, On the mountains erect your horn; The fruits and the flowers are your rightful dowers, Then why-...

Miscellaneous Extracts. COLONIAL RESOURCES—THE OLIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 November 1849

MIiscellaneous Extracts. COLONIAL RESOURCES--THE OLIVE. HAvcNG detailed the mode of rearing the olive, and briefly referred to the period of harvest, let us n.w proceed to make a few remarks on its productive ness. We have already stated that it grows but slowly, hence announcing long life. Trees 80 years of age measure only from 27 to 30 inches in circum ference at the lower part of their trunks ; we have already alluded to the extraordinary age of some of the olive trees in Turkey, we may mention there are others of at least equal age in other quarters, and one is mentioned by H. de Candolle as measuring above 23 feet in circumference, hence if they require 80 years to attain 2. feet in girth, we may safely es timate the age of this one at 700 years and here we shall merely notice two other colossal olive trees, one near Genoa measuring in circumference 38 feet 2 inches, and another at H-ieres 38 feet. The produce in fruit and oil is of course jregulated so far by the age of the t...
