Select Poetry. MAIDENHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

&el«t ^oettg. MAIDENHOOD. Maiden ! with tho meok, brown eyos, In whoso orb a shadow lies. Like the dusk in OTOuing skies! Thou whoso locks outshine the sun— Golden tresses, wreathed in one, .4Ls the braided streumlets run I Standing with reluotont feet, 'Whero the brook and river moot, Womanhood' and childhood, licet I Gazing with a timid glnnce, On the brooklet's swift advancer On the river's broad oxpanso ! Deep and still, that gliding Btroain, Beautiful to theo must seem, As the river ol a dream? Then why pause with indecision, . When bright angels, in thy vision, Beckon thco to fields Elysian ? . Scost thou shadows sailing by, As the dove, with startled oye, Sees a falcon's shadow fly ? ?Hoarost thou voices on the shore, .That our ears porceivo no moie. Deafened by .tho cataract's roar . O, thou child of many prayers ; Life hath quicksands— life hath_snarM J .-Care and age come unawares I * Liko tho swell of some sweet tuno, .Morning rises into noon, May glides onwards i...

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

1£ocal Intelligence. Look out fob. Light Bread. — As ap pears from the following case the present high pi ice of ,flour operates as a Bevere test upon the honesty of some of our Bathurst bakers, and although this is the first prose cution instituted for the sale of light bread, it is well known that it is by no means the first in which light bread has been sold. To the correctness of this statement we can personally attest. On Friday week, Win. Dunkley, of George-street, the quondam pieman and locomotive pastry cook, was brought up at the Police Office under the charge of cutting his business too fine. The Chief Constable, it appears, in obedience to orders from the Police Magistrate, paid the town bakeries a visit, and amongst others that of the sinning, purse-proud pie inan, when he found 21 light loaves of bread exposed for sale, which upon being weighed were discovered to be .36 ounces deficient in the whole. Whilst Mr. Sherman was occupied weighing the loaves, he observed the s...

i^lfeccllnneous Extracts. Range of thk Human Voice. — Respect- ing the range of the human voice, the edi tor of the Medical Times says ?. — There are about nine perfect tones, but there is 17,592,186,044,415 different sounds ; thus, 15 direct muscles, alone, or together, pro duce 16,383: 30 indirect muscles, ditto; 1 73,7-41, 823, and all in co-operation pro duce the number we have named ; and these, independently of different degrees of intensity. Stratagem to Betray tub Fortress of Komorn. — One circumstance the Lombard had forgotten ; the possibility of treason in the garrison. In the siege and capture of fortresses, treachery and discouragement have always played a chief pa:t. These have caused the fall of more strongholds tban all the cannon nf besiegers. In this instance there was nothing to be hoped from either the one or the other ; soldiers who can dance their national dances under a shower of red hot balls are in no danger of despondency, and Hungary is not the coun try wh...

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 March 1851

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. We copy the following singular an nouncement from the Daily Pacific News, a San. Francisco paper, of the 16th December last. It shows at all events the light in which Sydney people are regarded both in California and in the Sandwich Islands, when so absurd a story could gain credit anywhere. Reported Invasion Project. — Two or three weeks since a report was current that aa invasion of the Hawaiian Islands, by an armed force from California, was con templated. The citizens of Honolulu took the precaution to appoint a Committee to investigate the matter, and by their account in our news report from the Islands, it will be seen they are of ths opinion that such fears are groundless. The following is the Report alluded to in this paragraph : — The Committee appointed at a public meeting to iuquire into the reported con templation of an invasion of the Hawaiian Islands, by an armed force from California, say that they have had put into their hands two letters from S...

[Advertisetiest.] CFrom the People's Advocate, March 22, 1851.) ONE of the greatest of living' men— a poet, an orator, and a statesman — ono who, born an aristocrat became a republican by conviction, not in a moment, but gradually, as his mind became cn ightencil — rnaiTe one of his most effective speeches in tho French chamber of Deputies against capital punishment. 'We scarcely need to mention his name, the world has heard of Lamartine — of his glorious poetry, of his fascinating prose, and of that magnificent; eloquence which on more than one Dccasiou acted like oil upon troubled waters, stilliW. the turbulence of the people of Paris after the revo lution of February 1848. That' such a man should have advocated the cause of tho abolition of punish ment by death seems to us of great and manifold importance, and although many changes since- the day on which it was spoken have occurred ia tho world— although thrones have crumbled away, and their occupants have become fugitives and e...

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

HARTLEY RAGES. The attendance at the Hartley meet this season was not numerous. On the second day drizzling weather set in, which increased to soaking rain in the evening, and continued all night, and the fol lowing- day. As may easily be imagined this threw a damper on the races. A few sporting gents from Bathurst and Penrith took part in the proceedings, and enlivened the assemblage with their presence. Too much praise cannot bq awarded to Mr. Jeremiah Grant for bis spirit, in fringing out hi« prads to contest the various races . with the evident object of furnishing sport, rather than from any hope of winning. But for him the principal prizes would have been mere walk over affairs. , TUESDAY, MARCH 25th. FIRST RACE. The Hartley Town Plate of £30. Mr. Arkins ns.

Country Intelligence WESLEYAN MISSIONS.   A meeting in connexion with the 'Aux- iliary Wesleyan Missionary Society of the New South Wales District' was held in the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, at the Cornish Settlement, on Monday, 17th inst., at 3, p.m. The proceedings commenced by Ringing and prayer. These preliminaries having been observed. George Allen, Esq., M.L.C., rose and called Mr. Tom to the Chair. Mr. Tom, in responding to the call, stated that he was incompetent to discharge effi ciently the duty imposed upon him. This apology was, however, superseded by a neat and appropriate speech. He concluded by calling on Rev. B. Chapman to read the report, who read extracts from the last an nual report of the Parent Society, and as he proceeded expatiated on them. The meeting was thus supplied with an extem poraneous report both interesting and effective. Rev. W.

JOHN MITCHEL. A young artist, named Dowling1, who was transported from London in 1848 as an Irish confederate, has written to his brother in Dublin, on the arrival of John Mitchel at Hobart Town. Tho Nation publishes the subjoined extract from his letter :— ' On the n li of April last tho JVeptune ar rived heie with John Mitchel. He was kept on board several days, and no one was allowed to visit him. On Tuesday, the 9th, I felt rery anxious to to get a peep at him, and was down to consult OVDonohoe on the best means. I met O'Donohoe in Elizabeth street. The first words he said were, ' J am going to see Mitchell. If you have time I'll take you to htm.' I went with him to a statiuner's shop, where, for the first time, my eye rested on this truly great man. I don't think I should have known him from the portraits published of him ; for, although the features are alike, they have not caught the character of his face. O'Donohoe introduced me to him. He shook my hand cordially, and said h...

To the Editor of the Bathurst Free Press. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 April 1851

fro the Editor of the ' Bathurst Free Press.''] Mn. Editor, — It is very desirable that every civilised community should poasesa in itself available resources adequate to repel, if necessary, aggression from without, or (disturbance from, within. A standing army has hitherto been considered aa a sort of national sine qua non ; but observation and experience teach us that a people may ex ist in feranquility without such a defence. A properly organised police is the best safe guard, with a malitia force in reserve for cases of emergency, which, by the way, may never occur. Indeed volunteer corps might be raised in all towns, and often in country places, — their only expense to the Government of the Colony being fire-arms and accoutrements. Their officers, elected (by ballot,) would be men of ourselves, on duty commanding, but elsewhere our friends and acquaintances. Their uniform, self chosen and purchased, would add to the appearance of their various localities, — and how useful migh...

The feeling against the revival of transportation is so universal in this colony, ami has long been so entirely cousonant with the determination ex pressed in the neigbourihg settlements, that in, the course of the last two or three years many strong and urgent representations have been made on the subject to Her Majesty's government.
