MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 March 1851

MAURITIUS. Serious Riqt.— Very serious disorders took place in the eaetem suburb on the lat ter days of the Mussulman's Yarned festival. After several skirmishes of more or less gravityya regular pitched battle was fought by the two populations —the exappren tices on one side, and the Mussulmans on the other. Stones and big sticks were used in the absence of more sanguinary weapons. The Indians 'were pursued even into town in broad daylight. The broken remains of the Mussulman's Goun remained on the spot. It is reported that dead vic tims were found after this strange conflict — this civil war, unknown in our colony until now, the information of which reached us on Friday last by the yells of an excited multitude.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 March 1851

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. {From the S. M. Herald. J By late papers received from the Cape we perceive the death of Mr. Justice Men zies recorded. He died at Colesburgh on the 1st November. Some of the native chiefs were beginning to show symptoms of disaffection, and Sandilla had declined a frontier interview with Sir Harry Smith, which contempt the latter punished by a forfeiture of the chief's lands. Some dia bolical robberies had been committed by eome Hottentot deserters from one of the regiments. Amongst other outrages they murdered an innrkeeper, and plundered his house of £260.

. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. Sia — In the month of December last, I addressed a lettter to the Police Magistrate of Bathurst (the Local Agent to the Committee for Orphan Immi gration), upon the subject of the Rev. Thomas, Sharpe's refasal to give me a recommendation for one of the orphan girls, hired by Mrs. Parker, on the ground of my being a Wesleyan, and request ing him to lay the subject of .my letter before the committee. He did so, and the followiug com munication has been the result. It now becomes a question whether Wesleyans are to be deprived of the benefits of emigration on the ground of their being dissenters. So far as character is concerned, I can refer to the Wesleyan ministers who have resided in Bathurst during the last fourteen years, George Allen, Esq., M.C., W. H.

AVBSLEYAN MISSIONARY MEETING. Qn Monday evening- last a large congregation pf both sexe9 assembled at the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, to listen to the proceedings of a meeting convened for the furtherance and promotion of the objects' of missionary enterprise. The business of the evening commenced by singing a hymn, after which the Rev. B. Chapman rose and cailed Major General Stewart to the chair. Major General Stewart commenced by stating the extreme pleasure he felt in presiding on such occasions — a pleasure which was materially en hanced by the reflection that so much good, such Very great success had attended the efforts of mis sionaries in every qoartcr of the globe to civilize and enlighten the benighted children of nature. He saw around him men who were capable of doing justice to bo important an occasion, and should therefore not occupy their time any longer, except by expressing an anxious wish for the ad vancement of so excellent a cause.

Country Intelligence. CARCOAR RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 March 1851

(ffountrp Entdlf gertce. ' CARCOAR RACES. As might bo reasonably expected, the Carcoar meet of this year bore no comparison 'to that of tho past one. The unfavourableness of the season has operated very detrimentally upon that class who have formerly piven their countenance and support to the races. The drought appears to have equally affected the pockets and spirits of the Lachlan set tlers, and as much of the business of the surround ing country depends upon the produce brought from that quarter, it necessarily follows that tho general diminution of ways and means goes far towards checking that spirit of liberality which has hitherto characterised thn sporting community of Carcoar. A poor roan must have a poor wed ding ; and if this yeat's meeting has not been so good as former ones, the causes are such as ho prudence or foresight could avert. Truth, there fore, bids us say that the present meet has been a rather tame and spiritless one. But we hope for 'better things in future. U...

' Hocal Intelligence. . . _ Furious Riding.— Charles Cross appeared be fore the bench on Wednesday last, to answer to a charge of furiously riding through the streets of ?

The defendant pleaded guilty, and was fined £2, with 5s. 6d. cost, or ia default of payment, to be imprisoned for one ca lendar month.

MOLONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 March 1851

: MOLONG. Observance of the Sabbath.-- -For what reason'; : it is impossible for us to say, but many people in our neighbourhood who are not particularly remarkable for industry, and are not one iota more thriving than their neighbours, ap pear to select Sunday of all days in the week, for the performance of any extraordinary work. Draft ingandmu3teringcattleappeartoform an agreeable Sabbath-day amusement, and it is no unusual cir cumstaneo to see a person on that appointed day of rest who has been loitering about doing nothing particular on the six remaining days, toiling and sweating most laboriously among his pet poleys or his favourite nobbie3. Believing that to a certain extent outward form is necessarily connected with Christian principle and precept, and believing fur ther that such marked disregard of the command ment ' Thou shalt keep holy the Sabbath day,' &c.,must have a bad moral effect generally, but particularly on the rising generation, we beg to call the atte...

After a day or iwb, however, they floated, belly uppermost, to the shore, when they were speedily opened by the Turkey buzzards or j0ramby kites, which are reported to be capital dissectors, apparently for the musk bag under the fnre leg.
