BATHURST RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 March 1851

BATHURST RACES. The morning of Wednesday last was ushered into being with appearances strongly indicative of rain, and there seemed some probability that the Bathurst meet of the present year would be a wet one. However   desirable for general purposes a plenteous visitation of moisture at this season might be, it certainly would have acted unfavour- ably to the occasion. Early in the day the good folks of Bathurst were to be seen bustling about actively employed making preparations for a trip over the hill, and the extraordinary taste for horse-flesh which a few years' residence in this country almost invariably inspires was strickingly exempli- fied in the fact that although the race-course is little more than a mile from the centre of the town, and the ground inside and about the course from its scrubby cha- racter, unfavourable to equestrian exercise, wherever a horse could be procured for love or money, walking was out of the question, and the consequence was as us...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 March 1851

VAN DIEMKN's LAND. French Sailors Drowned. — On Thurs day last, during the, late severe gale of wind, a whalebaat got adrift from a vessel in the harbour.. The captain of ths L'Atemene' despatched two boats after it from the cor vette, and the men got hold of ihe boat at Sandy Bay. On returning to the corvette, the wind was directly against them, and having the whaleboat in tow they made little way. The officer put three of his men into the whale boat and cast off the tow-rope, but unfortunately the boat cap sized, owing to the violence of the wind, and two men were drowned. The other seaman was picked up after much exertion. This was a very melancholy event, and we ore afraid is not the only disaster caused by the gale of Thursday. — Hobart Town Paper.

CEYLON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 March 1851

CEYLON. . . . ( From the. S.-M. Herald. J Sir G. Anderson,, the new Governor of 'Ceylon, arrived on the 6th November, ex pecting1 to find his commission waiting for him. On his arrival, however, his Excel lency found that the commission would be sent to him at the Mauritius, and it was probable that a couple of months would elapse before he received it. The law offi cers had searched for precedents, but could find none that would authorise a gentleman to assume the government of a colony on no other authority than a letter, from the Secretary of State announcing that he had advised the Queen to appoint him Governor, and, therefore, until the commission with the sign manual was received, Sir George would remain a private gentleman. In the meantime, the government continued to be administered by Mr. M'Carthy, who, as Acting Colonial Secretary, succeeded to the .government under the charter of the colony on the departure of Lord Torrington.

Upon enquiry we have ascertained that such ?dissatisfaction does exist, and that the acci dental use of the phrase ' Catholic Chapel' instead of ' Roman Catholic Church' has been looked upon as offensive.

SHIP CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS. (Alta California, December 6.) [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 March 1851

A SHIP CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS. (Alia California, December 6.J Will this dream of three centuries ever end in reality ? Will all the talk and cal culations, conventions, and disputes, reck oning of expenses and profits, of benefits and fortunes it would confer, go for nothing or shall the idea wake into fact with the full day sun of progress and enterprise, and the great world of commerce aud civiliza tion witness the wedding of the two Oceans ? Perhaps no scheme of the present day involves more weighty considerations, than that of scooping out a passage way for ships through the mountains, which have been called 'the back bone' of our conti nent — those ' rock-ribbed' barriers which have 80 long resisted the billowy years of time, as well as the lashing tides of ocean. A great portion of European navigation and commerce, especially that of England, is deeply interested in the scheme. But to the United States especially is the question one of incalculable importance, and of no port...
