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

Hocal Intelligence. Repair op the Streets. — We are glad to perceive that Sir. Dargin has undertaken the repair of that disgraceful piece of road near the corner of the old bank, where, without a little care on the part of the driver, a vehicle would stand a good chance of capsizing. To defray the expense Mr. D. has employed himself in levying1 u trifling tax upon the people of the neigh bourhood. But, as usual, there are those selfish mortals who shrug- their shoulders and button their pockets, but who are, nevertheless, quite willing to share the ad vantage of the improvement. Such will ever be the case until local taxation for local purposes is enforced. A very Suspicious Character. — On Monday evening last, C. C. Sherman received information that the inmates of Mr. llopgood's Inn had been awoke by the noise of a man attempting to enter the house by one of the windows. He pro ceeded to the place and secreted himself for a time about the premises for a short period, when he observ...

THE TALE OF A TUB CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 March 1851

THE TALE OF A TUB CONTINUED. Verbooitt in composition, and loquacity in conversation are alike the result of ill balanced intellectual organisation, and the man who is affected with either symptom is apt to write and talk himself into the depths of egregious nonsense. The victim of these complaints may pass current for a prudent and sensible man so long. as he can rein in his tongue or control. hi3 pen ; but ?when, like a fiery and unmanageable cteed, either one or the other bursts the bounds of restraint, the unfortunate sufferer is made to harlequinade very amusingly, and poor, abused, neglected common sense is hurled floundering into the mud. One feature of either disease is, that the weak- headed suf ferer is apt to be pleased at his own perfor mances, and if he can only manage to raise a great dust, he is apt, like children on a Hummer day, under similar circumstances, to clap his hands and shout mostexultingly.

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

English Intelligence. (From the Hobart Town Advertiser.) A Cabinet Council was held on the 23rd October, to consider the conduct of Prussia and the overtures of France and Russia to form a convention to compel Prussia to withdraw her support from Holstein. In the event of her not complying with this demand, Russia and France are prepared to back it by an invasion of the Silesian Provinces on one side, and the Rhenish on the other. England declines, and proposes that each of the powers should remonstrate with Prussia. The new Lord Mayor of London was to be presented to her Majesty on the 2nd November. The first contribution to the Exhibition   from the Continent had arrived in England. It consists of 89 packages from St. Peters burg, addressed to Gabriel Kaminsky, Esq., the agent of the Russian Government.

JitttsceUaneous lExtract*. A Romance without FiCTioN.-^-About three years ago, the Rev. R. S. M'Clay, of ^Concord, Franklin county (late of Gettys burg!)), received a call from the Board of Foreign Missions connected with the Metho dist Episcopal Church, to visit China and preach the Gospelto the benighted Celes tials of the central flowery land. M'Cay was young, ardent, enthusiastic, and most willingly embraced the high and holy ? duty assigned to him. In due time he arrived in China, and was stationed at Fan Chua, some 700 miles in the interior from Hong Kong. There he studied the native lan guage, and commenced his labour among the Celestials, with the most nattering suc cess. Still there was something wanting— a void in the heart to be filled ; he sighed for the best solace to man, either in weal or woe — a wife. How to get one waB an intri cate question tosolve.

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE AT THE CONSECRATION OF A CHURCH. CFrom the Globe, Oct. 7.) On Saturday last the new district. church of St. Peter, at Plymouth, was consecrated by the Bishop of Exeter. Some days be fore the cousecration, the incumbent, ffee Rev. G. R. Prynne, issued notices stating that admission would be by ticket. Upon this, application was made by. Mr. Isaac Latimer, the editor of the Plymouth Jour nal, for a ticket, which Mr. Prynne, who had recently prosecuted Mr. Latimer for a libel, at Exeter, and been defeated, refused, alleging that he felt it a solemn duty to' protect the worshippers and communicants of St. Peter's Church from the idle and profane gaze of a mere spectator. The ticket was consequently withheld, and Mr. Lattiraer wrote to the Bishop of Exeter, who, however, has taken no notice of hia letter, although bis attention was called to the fact thot he had before deprecated this system of packing a church by admitting by ticket.

We have been so often deceived by notices of this nature, that we place but little confidence in them. The Probability, however, that the enter prising directors of the United Stales Steam Companies will extend to the Australasia!^ colonies the benefit of steam vessels, may quicken the energies, and excite the zeal of the Peninsular and Oriental Company, even without a guarantee. ' We are informed that the Directors of the Peninsular and Oriental Company have given orders for their iron-steam ships the Erin, S5Q tons, 280 horse, power, and Pacha, 600 tons, 210 horse power, to. be immediately overhualcd and prepared for sea.

We read of California adding one atar more to the Columbian constellation, and of the unbounded prospects of treasure and power that are opening to American energy on its own coasts and in the islands of the Pacific, and also in the ancient era-, pires whose wealth and weakness lie on the Asiatic side of that ocean.

IRISH EMIGRATION. (From the Illustrated London News, Oct. IS.) The Irish emigration still continues to flpwinto the United States. The Liver pool and New York packets are daily thronged with the Irish peasantry ; and it was estimated that from the 1st of January to the 1st of October, in the present year, at least 140,000 Irish of all ages and of all conditions, except the highest, have'quitted the shores of the old country to seek sub sistence', if not fortune, in the new. Hith erto this emigration has conducted itself, and has not been organised upon any plan or system. The peasant or the small farr mer, finding himself miserable at home, has resolved to try his fortune in the wilds of America, and for this purpose has cither hoarded his money, or received remittances from his friends or relatives in the United States to help him over-: The result has, been the extraordinary and constant euflx of the Celtic race from Europe to America which has been taking place since 1847, and wh...
