THE SALARY TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

THE: SALARY TO TIE PRESIDENT OF TIHE SYDNEY RAILWAY COM PANY. WHEN a duty devolves upon men, and that duty is associated with the apportioning of moneys for particular purposes, over which they exercise a trust, their first acts should be such as point to a proper distribution of the funds; and they should be guided in mnaking their awards, not only by the cir cumstances which place the power .in their hands, but by the financial condition of the supply. If they fail to do so, there nmust be something radically wrong; for good stew ards invariably render an equitable account of their stewardships-an account bearing on the face of it, judgment and discrimina tion. The first question, therefore, to be con sidei'ed is, "Do the gentlemen holding the offi~es of Directors of the Sydney Railway Company, consider that a most important Sduty has devolved upon them, and that duty the one to which we have just referred ?" The second, "IHave the funds over which they hold control been judicious...

CAPTAIN POSITIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

CAPTAIN POSITIVE. ..: [From Chamber's Edinburgh Journal.] . A French veteran, with one arm, was seated be fore the door of his neat cottage one pleasant even in'g in July. He was surrounded by several village lads, who with one voice intreated him to commence his promised story. The old manr took his pipe from his mouth, wiped his lips with the back of his remaining hand, and began thus: "It my time, boys, Frenchmen would have scorned to fight with Frenchment in the streets as they do now. No, no; when we fought, it was for the honour of France, and agaitrst her foreign ene mies. Well, my story begins on thIe 6th of Novemn. ber 1812, a short time after the battle of Wizmra. We were beating a retreat, not before the Russians, for they kept at a respectful distance from our can tonments, but before the biting cold of thleir detes table country, more terrible to us than Russians, Austrians, and Bavarians put together. For thie last few days our officers had been telling us that we Swer...

IRELAND—CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

IRELAND-- CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FAMEINE. [From The Times, July 19.] I have spoken of what _may be properly called "famine cases;" this may appear to need some explanation. A few days of such experience as that I have now for some weeks had, will enable any one to unerringly distinguish the characteristics of "famine" as a disease. In the young, it shows itself, not merely in that attenuation of feature which it gives to all of every age, but the hair quits the head in clean patches, gets thin everywhere; a species of thick "down" or soft hair appears on the cheek bones; the eye sinks into the head, and has a most pe culiar character; the complexion is cadav erous; the skin hangs about the arms, while ansaarca swells it out about theancles; the feet have a blueish appearance; with the very young children the stomach is either unnaturally protuberant or as unna turally sunken; the mesenteric glands at first are like knots, then seem almost alto gether gone. In the aged, there is very...

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

'::ENGLISH AND FOREIGN INTEL LIGENCE. WE continue our summary of European in *telligence received to the 17th August. -.The Report of the Board of Health advi sing the abolition of Quarantine, has met a . severe handling from the "Monthly Jour -nal and Retrospect of the Medical ?encs." It avers that tl;e~.rGp gisioers were in Scompetet t~pform a coriqt opirlo non the subject.... The most, perhaps the only, remarkable feature in the Royal speeches, was the omission of the usual stereottped averment that "Her Majesty continues to receive from Foreign Powers assurances of amity .and friendship." A set phrase which.has given place to the more suspicious one, " that the friendly character of her rela tions.with foreign powers affords Her Ma jesty a just confidence in the continuation of peace."-Not a syllable is breathed about the intervention of France in Rome, or Russia in Hungary. One hundred and ten Bills have received the Royal Assent, Ireland receiving the lion's share. The Navigat...

FUTURITY OF THE WORKING CLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

FUTURE[Y OF THE WORKING CLASSES. [From " Mills' Principles of Political Economy."] C00NSIDERED in its moral and social aspect, the state of the labouring people has latterly been a subject of much more speculation and discussion than formerly; and the opin ion, that it is not now what it ought to be, has become very general. The suggestions which have been promulgated, and the con troversies which have been excited, on de tached points rather than on the foundations of the subject, have put in evidence the ex istence of two conflicting theories respecting the social position desirable for manual labourers. The one may be called the theory of depenc.ence and protection, and the other that of self-dependence. According to the former theory, the lot of the poor, in all things which affect them col lectively, should be regulated for them, not by them. They should not be required or encouraged to think for themselves, or give to their own reflection or fore-cast, an influ ential voice in...

'.SYDNEY. Fair City, young Queen of the Southern seas, Much room for pride hast thou, Yet add another to those bright leaves, Of laurel on thy brow. 'Bight nobly onward hast thou sped, But higher yet must raise thy head. 'Thy growth has been like some fair child .Beneath a genial sun, While peace and plenty round thee smiled, And soft the hours roll'd on: BBut see thy childhlood's dreamy time Is past, and we must hail thy prime. For now within thine eager frame, New energies shall spring, Fair science thy regard must claim, And o'er thy spirit fling Her soul-inspiring influeuce, then Thou shalt be honot'd among men. Oh ! who can tell the bright career, That lies before thee now, When art and science cherish'd here Shall crown thy youthful brown With wreaths of Fame oh! brighter far, Than victory twines for ruthless war. Already at thy mandate now, Genius and skill combine, To scan with care each mountain brow And fiod the truest line ':Wh'ere art may bind with an iron band A pathway...

Original Poetry. REGRETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

·-o----- REGRETS. Lust night was wild and stormy, But morning brought a calm, : Again the dark and low'ring clouds Forebode a coming storm; -Yet the clouds will shed their treasures Like. blessings on the earth, S And the dewdrops will be glittering, When again the sun shines forth. S But the heart by care corroded, And sorrow long suppressed, Say what shall bring tile heart relief And hush its storms to rest. The showers of soul-relieving tears, Say will they come at last, S To soften of its bitterness, The memory of the past. M. A. B.

Country News. (FsOoM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ~tAS. RAILwAY MEETING.-On Friday last, a meeting I convened by Mr. H. O'Brien, on his own requisition, took place at Yass, to do or say somethiug about Railroads. Mr. O'Brien, with an anxious desire to observe the unities, moved himself into the chair, and remarked, that Raiiroads ill general were spi rited affairs, and produced all sorts of tlhinugs every where-concludirng that he was ready to submit Resolutions to the Meeting. The Meeting however was deaf to the voice of the Charmer, and looked coldly and sadly on, declinig to hold cards in the game in which Mr. Charles Cowper held all the trnmps. And so, after tile manner of the gentleman of oldt, who *' walked up the hill and then walked down again," Mr. H. O'Brien left the chali'. An impression seemed to prevail that the present funds of the Company being somewhere about £1100, it was comiig it rayther too powerful to vote £600 of it to Mr. Charles Cowper; that it was be gitiring the...

SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY AND APPOINTMENT OF MR. COWPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY AND APPOINT MEhlNT OF MR. COWPEIR. We were not astounded to find that the great ma j6drity of the Sharehohlers of this Company in this district, coincided in the opinion expressed by us Inst week, as to the appointment of Mr. Cowper to the office of President and Manager of the Company, nor were we astounded to find that with the spirit which has always charactetised the Goulburnites, the Sharehohlers have determined to take the lead in protesting against this most injudicious tudt, as it appears now, illegal appoinitnett. Our advertising columns show that a meeting is convened, forTues day next, of the Shareholders in this district, for the purpose of calling on the directors to re-consider their vote, anid from the ntmber of shares tepre sented by the requisitionists and the unanimity of sentiitrelt prevailinig on the subject, we have no doubt but the meeting will be'well attended and must prove effective in its result We caiinot but commend thie moderate tI...

TOWN COMMON. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

TOWN COIMMON. IN another column the reader will find the resolutions, referring to tke management of the Town Common, which were adopted at the Meeting, held on Thursday last at the Commercial Hotel. We were glad to observe that the inhabi tants present were nearly unanimous in de siring to preserve the vacant ground oppo site Sloanc-street, for the exclusive purpose of recreation-the purpose for which it was originally granted by Sir Richard Bourke. Although a cow or a horse occasionally stray ing over this ground might not interfere with the health-giving games of the younger class of the community or the promenading of children of a larger growth, we believe that to suffer them to encroach at all would be to establish a bad precedent, as in the course of a short time, the exclusive character of the reserve would be lost sight of, and the comfort and safety of those who use it would be greatly endangered. The resolution urging the necessity for keeping pure the water in the Mulwar...

DEATH BY DROWNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 1 December 1849

DEATH BY DROWNING.—On Tuesday last, an in- quest was held, at the Argyle Inn, before Mr. Waugh, Coroner for the district, on view of the body of Mr. James Field, boot and shoe maker, lately re- siding in Montague-street, who was accidentally drowned on the previous day, whilst bathing in the Wollondilly River. It appeared from the evidence adduced, that the deceased, in company with his son, a boy of about nine years old, and Mr. Lyon, the mattress maker, who resides in the same house, went to that part of the river opposite Kenmore, for the purpose of bathing, it being an exceedingly hot and sultry day. They arrived at the bank of the stream about half-past five o'clock, and deceased having stripped first plunged in, and was immedi- ately followed by his companion. Upon reaching within a few yards of the opposite side of the river, and where there are a number of weeds grow- ing, deceased turned round, as if uncertain whether he should proceed or not, and making a back stroke with ...

A CARD PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 8 December 1849

A CARD PARTY.-It is related of Madame du Deffan, that three of her friends brought a card-table to her bed-side, at her request, in her last illness, she taking a hand. As she happened to die in the midst of an in teresting game, her partner played dummy for her, and thus the three quietly played it out, and settled the stakes before they called the servants to notify them of the very im portant demise of their mistress. Shocking as is this incident, it is trivial in comparison with one that is said to have occurred at Albany many years since. There was at that time a low-eaved, peak-roofed, stone built inn, situated in the upper part of the city, known as the " Colonie;" a place much frequented by Schenectady teamsters and Mohawk boatmen, before the completion of Clinton's grand canal had caused that dissi pated mongrel race to be superseded in their vocation. At this inn one day a man by the name of Derrick Helfenstein, but better known as " Dirk Hell of German Flats," had been se...

A TAVERN WAITER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 8 December 1849

A TAVERN WAITER. DAVID COPPERFIELD, the younger, is on his way to school, near London. The coach stops at Yarmouth, allowing sufficient time for.the .passengers to dine. David's dinner had been previously ordered and paid for. It was a large room, with some large maps in it. I doubt if I could have felt much stranger if the maps had been real foreign countries, and I cast away in the middle of them. I felt it was taking a liberty to sit down, with my cap in my hand, on the corner of a chair nearest the door; and when the waiter laid a cloth on purpose for me, and put a set of castors on it, I think I must have turned red all over with modesty. He brought me some chops and vegetables, and took the covers off in such a bouncing manner, that I was afraid I must have given him some offence. But he greatly relieved my mind by putting a chair for me at the table,, and saying, very affably, "Now six foot I come on !" I thanked him, and took my seat at the board; but found it extremely diff...
