English Extracts. THE ASPECT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

SnglfsS Extracts. THE ASPECT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS. j (From, the Daily News, Nov. 26 J) The Prussian monarch's speech, is na- doubt warlike! but we mistake much, if it be not the contrary of war causing. Defiant as it is to Austria, and contemptuous to the soi-disant Bund of Frankfort, it carefully avoids whatever might give offence to Russia, j , The heir to the Electorate of Hessev it is i( .well known, is a son-in-law of the Russian : Emperor, and was one of the prince* at. j Warsaw. To have prejudged in the speech il the constitution question of Hesse waold have been a defiance to Russia as well es Austria, and would not have been ventured! .unless there were no hopes of the court of Berlin remaining on a good understanding; ? with that of St. Petersburgh. The speech: | .evidently does not abandon that hcpa, atj& the fraonera of the royal speech mast have -had some reason to count upon it.

Sydney Intelligence [The following letter has been addressed by the writer to all the Sydney journals:] CALIFORNIA. Warning to Emigrants. (To the Editors of the Sydney Newspapers) [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

&l}&neg 'Intelligence [The following letter has been addressed 'by the writer to all the Sydney journals :] CALIFORNIA. Warning to Emigrants. {To the Editors of the Sydney Newspapers) Gentlemen.— Perceiving that emigration hence to California has again set in with unabated virulence, I would solemnly warn those who yet remain, against departure. Every letter here published (and there have been many) speaks unfavourably for ^adventurers thither. Why then should a few isolated individuals who have returned 'thence, saying they have made 200 or 300 pounds, weigh against the multitude of ab solute and total failures T Having visited that country myself, I hesitate not to declare my decided convic tion that one-third at least of those now emigrating will perish within a year from absolute penury (poverty), from famine, hard living, harder work, want of shelter, and%ther hardships, the certain forerun ners of sickness, of death, and of the grave. Let each man ask himself h...

Colonial News. MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 22 March 1851

CDoIonfal jSefoss. MORETON BAY. Horriblb Recital. — On Wednesday last an intelligent boy, about nine years old, appeared before the Police Magistrate to make a statement of having seen a dead bodv in the river. He deposed that his name was David Cummings, and that, on the preceding Friday, in the afternoon, he was, with his little brother, endeavouring to launch his father's boat from the banks of the river, near Mr. Kilner's residence, at Bulimba, when he observed the dead body of a man lying with the head in the mud of the bank, and the feet in the water. A lot of sharks and porpoises were about the body. The sharks tore the clothes that were on it, and took the head off, and tore out the bowels ; after which they seized the body by the legs, and dragged it into deep water; the feet then appeared above the surface of the water, and they boy saw that they had low boots on, without any strings. The body then disappeared. The witness stated that it was a big man, dressed in a white s...

PROGRESS OF POPULATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

PROGRESS OF POPULATION. Tho territory of the United States is as large as that of all Europe- its population, including that of the aborigines and immi grants, may exceed 20,000,000, which is not a tenth part of that of Europe. Ia August, 1790, the United States' contained nearly four millions of people, inclusive of about 700,000 slaves. In ISO0. there were 5.305,925 inhabitants; 7,239,814 io 1810; 9,654,596 iu 1820; 12,866.020 in 1800; and 17,063,355 in June, 1840, of whom 14,189.706 were whites. Since the era of 1812 the area of the United States ha3 nearly doubled. During twenty-five years, to 1848, 1,588*172 persons have migrated from Great Britain and Ireland to North America, chiefly to the United Stales. In the year 1 848, there arrived at the port of New York 189.176 immigrants, of whom 89,061 were from Ireland; 51,978 from Germany; and 6,415 from Scotland.

Cambridge Undergraduate, bruiser of the heavy hand, wherefore didst thou darken the eye of Strange ? Why bungedst thou up the peeper of Atholl ? The autumn winds were singing the coronach of the summer in Glen Tilt. A moaning as of no end of ghosts, swept through the hollow glen. There, with the red and brown leaves falling around him, stood the Chief of Clan Atholl, with a party of ladies and gentlemen. Shrouded in the mist of the distance coraeth Sandy Mac Jaren.

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

CALIFORNIA. CFrom the Sydney Morning Herald) The news from California extends to the 20th January. Commercial affairs were very dull, the markets being greatly overstocked with al rhoBt every description of merchandise. Great excitement was caused by the dis covery of gold at the ' Bluffa' about 20O miles north of San Francisco. According to the reports the gold is in larger quantities there, and more easily obtainable, than in any other district in the state. The papers in the older gold districts say that these ac counts are much exaggerated, and are cir culated by interested parties to attract po pulation to the new district. The cholera and ague had ceased ; and the winter was a very mild one, tliere hav ing been very little rain. The overland emigration still continued ; upwards of forty thousand persons had passed a military post on the road in seven months. Governor Burnett had resigned his office on account of ' private affairs,' and had been succeeded by Lieutenant-Governor...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

J*JUsceUaneous ISxttacts. Government Education.-?- We have on divers occasions shown the necessity for a national system of education; the subject has indeed been-so often spoken of in these pages, that we are almost ashamed to re turn to it. And yet perhaps the friends of a general system, conducted under the au thority and at the expense of the state, never required to speak out with greater vigour. What we want may ,be told in a single sentence. We desire to see a sys tem of national secular education, projected and maintained by the public, for the ben efit of the whole people. -We Detest every thing like sectarianism : it is the blight of every national improvement, arid is keep ing the people in ignorance. In order that government may, ..with propriety and justice to all, interfere on behalf of the public in this momentous question, it is our qpinion that nothing beyond secular instruction on broad principles should be given in the national .schools ; and that the religious po...

BOWENFELS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

BOWENFELS. The Mtstkrious Disease.— A short time since, Mr. Thomas Miller, of this place, very narrowly escaped the fatal effects that are said to re3ult from contact with the blood of un animal aftected with the mys terious disease. One of his horses being taken very suddenly jll, and exhibiting; symptoms of a xvildoess Dot to hs described, Mr. Miller bled him in tho neck, and in doing so, accidentally received a sprinkling of the blood on his hand and arm, which soon after commenced swelling to a fearful extent with excruciating pain. A strong mixture of brandy and salt was immediately applied with continued friction downward, and we are happy to state that the remedy proved effectual. The horse too is perfectly recovered. Query : I3 not the mysterious disease, then, immediately connected with the blood of the animal affected ? GENERAL SUMMARY.

Colonial News. THE STATE PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

(Eolonfol jEefos, THE STATE PRISONERS. (From the Lwunceston Examiner.') Mr. M'Manus has disappeared. He has risen from the bed of sickness, and sought refuge from his tormentors in close seclu sion here or in other scenes. Jf he have escaped from this island, and be now in the enjoyment of liberty, the colonists must sincerely rejoice, The only fear is, that he remains within the precincts of the coir ony, and driven to desperation by the treat ment he has suffered, may fall a sacrifice to famine and disease. No man could re gard with more fidelity his original parole than did Mr. M'Manus. Opportunities to depart are of known frequency, but he never contemplated removal. But he was freed from the obligation the moment Cap tain Denison broke the compact and sent him to toil at the oar like a galley slave. For this tyrannical and cruel act Lord Grey and the ministry will have no reason to applaud their deputy. He has severed the only link that could bind such gentlemen to the soil — t...

EXTERMINATION IN THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

EXTERMINATION IN THE WEST. f ' (? (Londonderry Sentinel.) SaJus populi suprema lex: So said -and '.thought the heathens, but our Christian/ ?Government has reversed the maxim. The -; salvation of the people- seems to be the last thing1 which it really takes to heart. It is certainly anxious about the peace of' the country, and will put forth all its energies ? to crush insurrection, ^and prevent the shed' dirig of blood. But if the? people are quiet - and submissive, they may be destroyed in '. thousands,- yea, in hundreds of thousands, . by the- slow but sure process of starvation -and eviction, for aught the government seems to care. — No matter how stupendous the wrong that is inflicted, if it be done ; legally, there is nothing to be said about it.

THE NICARAGUA ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

THE NICARAGUA ROUTE. ' :(Allas.) The junction of the Atlantic and Pacific may bs regarded 'as commenced, The Nicavagua route to California across the isthmus saves 900 miles as compared with Panama, and has the advantage of a healthy climate. Hopes are entertained that the temporary transit, when it shall be fully organised, may be accomplished in 24 hours. It will commence from Grey Town ascend the San Juan, and cross the lake to the city of Nicaragua, where a land journey of only fifteen miles remains to reach the Pacific. The contemplated fare fcr the passage is only 50 dols., including 250Ibs of baggage for each passenger. This is lower than the charge at Panama. Nothing ?in- connexion with the present movements on the Pacific will be watched with more interest -than these proceedings. It has been commonly reported that the number who crossed the isthmus last year^ was seventy thousand, and the lowest estimate 50,000.

NEW ZEALAND. The Weather. — Bush Fires. — The pre sent summer has been the driest that has been experienced since the formation of this settlement, and so lnng a continuance of warm weather, together with the ubacnoo of rain, appears to be an unusual occurence in New Zealand. The quantity of rain which fell during the month of January, 1850, was 5 inches 6 tsnths, while the quantity of rain during the last month did not amount to more than the fifteenth part of an inch, and no rain has falleu during the present month. Several watercourses usually having water at this time of the year have been dried up, and the face of the country generally presents a brown and parched nppearance. Several fires have occurred in the country districts, from the srapulderiag ashes of bush fires which have been lighted some weeks since in clearing the land, but which from the dryness of the grass and of the underbush have spread ia different directions, causing no small de gree of apprehension to the co...

-&tig(nal (Somspontonce. [lib the Editor of the ?'

'There are so many kinds and sorts of edu ?cation, — scholastic, political, -religious, fa-- miliar, circumstantial, and accidental, — that to treat of the whole indiscriminately, were to set our ideas afloat, like insect voyagers on a shoreless fathomless ocean. The North American savage has his own views of education (and very sedate views they are too.-) So has the ' Black Feller' :in the deep penetralia of New South Wales, — and so ha3 everyone, red, black, white, yellow, or copper-colour (which last is de-r ?cidedly most metallic to the vision.)
