SOCIAL CONDITION OF THE AMERICANS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

SOCIAL- CONDITION OF THE AMERICANS. (FromMackai/s Western World.) The most important feature of American society, in connection with its physical con dition, is that competence is the- lot of all. No 'matter to what this ia attributable, whether to the extent and resources of the country, or to the nature of its institutions, or to both, such is the case, and one has notsto be long m America to discover it. It is extremely seldom that the willing hand in America is in want of employment, whilst the hard-working man has nut only a competence on which to live, but, if fru gal, may soon save up sufficient to procure for himself in the West, a position of still greater comfort and independence. There are paupers in Amerjca, but, fortunately, they are few. They are generally confined to the Ian? a towns ; nor need they subsist upon charity, if they had energy to go into the rural districts and seek employment. This, however is not applicable to the ma jority of them, who are aged and inf...

MUDGEE JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

MUDGEE JUSTICE. That sly grog selling is a crying nui sance and one of the greatest pests of the interior with which the stock-holder has to contend, every one connected with sheep or cattle establishments will readily admit ; and if Messrs. Robeit9on and Meston who have latterly been propounding schemes to the Australian public for ridding the coun try of the native dog, could also point' out some method by which the suppression of sly-grog selling could be effected, they would deserve to be enrolled amongst the benefactors of this southern land. Indeed it would not be difficult to show that the evils are frequently connected in the rela tive positions of cause and effect. The *? bum boat' is the best friend of the dingo, often delivering over to his tender mercies the woolly charge of its besotted victim. Impressed with the magnitude and im portance of these considerations^ Nicholas P. Bayly, Esq. of the Mudgee Bench* has en tered upon a crusade against the. whole sys tem, and so ...

THE CO-PARTNERSHIP OF NATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

THE CO-PARTNERSHIP OF NATIONS (By Elihu fiurritt.') The commerce of nations is nothing else than the co-partnership of nations, in carrying on the same trade ; and what is peculiar to these interna tional connections, they are not limited partner ships, they are not optional partnerships, neither can they be dissolved. Individual firms may dis solve their connections by mutual consent, and to their mutual advantage ; but the great commercial firm of nations cannot do the same. Let us glance at tho commerce or co-partnership between Eng land an d tho United States, and see if it could be dissolved without dissolving into air the means whereby millions of each country live. . During the year 1844, the whole exports of the produce and manufacturers of the United States were valued at £23,16G:676. — Now mark this im portant fact — tho exports to Great Britain, its colo nies and dependencies, amounted to £12,838,095, or more than half of the entire exports of the na tion. The entire impo...

IRELAND. THE NEW FRANCHISE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

IRELAND. THE NEW FRANCHISE ACT. CFrom, the Times Cor respondent. J The gross number of freeholders under the old and supplemental registries for the county of Gal way amounts to but 4100 — a low figure considering the extent and population of the county, and a pregnant proof of the fearful effects of a three years' famine followed] by emigrations and evic tions on a scale of magnitude hitherto unknown even in Ireland. Alluding to the unchecked rush of emigration from the west, the Athlone Independent observes ? 'Not a vehicle leaves this town without contain ing its quota of self-expatriated ? poor Irish.1 We have seen some of them actually begging their way, barefooted and ill-clad, with children but a few months old. Wo have been credibly informed that many of those emigrants bring their goods to market and never return to their homes, lest the landlord or his agent should be there to demand his rent. It has been asserted with more force than foundation, that this system of emigra...

PRODUCE CIRCULARS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

PRODUCE CIRCULARS. The favorable accounts of the English Wodl Market generally anticipated, have been fujly re alised by the arrival of the Thomas Arbuthnot, with advices of the opening of the London Novem ber rates, which show an advance of $d to Id per lb. on the sales current at tlie previous sanes. This intelligence has had a marked effect on prices here, which experienced a corresponding advance at our auction, on Thursday, when competition was very spirited, and a good clip ( that of Messrs. W. and E. Ogilvie, of Clarence River), brought Is. 4£d. per lb. ; ' British accounts of tallow are less encouraging, but the trifling deliveries which we are .now re ceiving meet with ready demand for home con sumption at full prices.

SYDNEY MARKETS. Wheat and Flour.— A good supply of wheat has been received at Messrs Barker's mills this week, both coastwise and by the road.

MILITARY ESTABLISHMENTS NOT REQUIRED IN THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

MILITARY ESTABLISHMENTS NOT RE QUIRED IN THE COLONIES. (From.MacJcay's Western V/orld.) The most plausible excuse offered for the great ness of our military establishments, is the vast ex lent of our colonial dominions. As to how far every one of the forty colonies or so we possess is nf usp. to us. is a nnestion into which I have no intention of entering. It may b.e said, however, La passing, that some of the finest of tliem are comparatively useless to us, simply because the co lonial department either cannot or will not turn them to profitable account. The only point which we have here to deal with is, whether the question alluded to is a valid one or not. If we arc to have colonies, iiohody can reasonably grudgo whatever is necessary for their protection.' But the question is, what is necessary for this purpose ? It would seem that, in the estimation of one class at least in this country, a department cannot be efficient unless it is extravagant, although daily experience tenche...
