SYDNEY MARKETS.—DECEMBER 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

SYDNEY MARKE'rS.--D~cEztBEn 8; [From the" Sydney Morning .Herald."] PROFITABLE iuvestment no longer appears to be the object of importers, as each now vies with the oilier, seeing who will sacrifice most. The quantity of goods offered fbr sale dui'iug the.week.has had a most ijnrious effect on the market, and trade whole sale has been completely paralyzed ih consequence. The John and Charlotte's cargo .of. Pampantca Sugar was placed about the 1st June. last at £14 anitud duhring November sales of Paunpanga were effected at £10 10s.'ant upwards, showing an advantage of £5 to £6 per ton in the space of six months; bad Iholders of angars been as firm as they miglht have been under-the cirncunstauces,- there was no reason why tihe markets should. not have risen consider ably higher.

HORRIBLE MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

HORRIBLE MURDER. THE English papers are full of particulars of a most barbarous murder perpetrated in London. We take the following, as the most readable account of it, from the Times, of August 23: The black chronicles of crime keep pace 'with the fatalities of this eventful season. Since the head of Mr. Hayes was exposed for recognition 70 years ago, upon a pole in St. Margaret's churchyard, there has not been so much excitement created by any murder in this metropolis as the atrocity of which Minerva-place, Bermondsey, has just been the seene. The tenements in Minerva-place are situ ated so closely together, with such thin party walls, and with such a perfect com mand of the windows of the one over the yards and gardens of the other, that not a sight nor a sound could well pass unperceived -a circumstance which will in no small degree augment the wonders of the story whichis to follow. In the third house of this row resided Frederick Manning and Maria his wife, the former of whom...

A SLAVONIC TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

A SLAVONIC TRAGEDY. Foun Montenegrins and their sister, aged 21, going on a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Basilio, were waylaid by seven Turks in a rocky defile, so narrow that they could only thread it one by one; and hardly-had they entered between the precipices that bordered it on either side, when an unex pected discharge of fire-arms killed one brother and desperately wounded another. To retrace their steps were impossible with out meeting certain and shameful death, since to turn their backs would give the enemy the opportunity of destroying them at pleasure. The two who were unhurt, therefore, advanced and returned the fire, killing two Turks, while the wounded one, supported himself against the rock, fired also and mortally injured two others, but was killed himself in the act. His sister, taking his gun, loaded and fired again simul taneously with her two brothers, but at the same instant one of them dropped down dead. The two surviving Turks then rushed furi ously at th...

ASSASSINATION OF GOVERNOR AMARAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 15 December 1849

ASSASSINATION OF GOVERNOR AMARAL. [From the Hongkong Register, August 28.] TTIE late daring and atrocious assassination of Governor Amaral, at Macao, on the eve ning of the 22nd instant, has created general regret and sympathy, not only among the Portuguese of Macao, but the whole Foreign community in this part of China. So far as we have been able to glean them, the parti culars of this melancholy event are the fol lowing : The Governor accompanied by his aide de-camp was taking his customary evening ride, and when about three hundred yards from the Barrier gate, was met by a boy carrying a bamboo, which he presented at the Governor's face and then struck him. When the Governor was wheeling round his horse to resent this, eight men who had been concealed attacked him, dragged him from his horse, and dispatched him with com mon small Chinese swords. The aide-de camp, was also attacked and wounded, but managed to get clear, and immediately gal loped into town to give the alarm. The G...

THE EQUESTRIAN'S CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

THE EQUESTRIAN'S CHILD. IT is about three years since I was engaged to play in an equestrian company. It was managed by a Mr. Codoni, of Italian ex traction, and of much respectability. For a short time previously I had been an ill-re munerated member of a country dramatic circuit, in which low comic parts had prin cipally fallen to my lot. This person, taking a fancy to my powers in that way, made offer to me of the tempting salary of two guineas a week to become clown to the ring in this exhibition. I must 'confess I had some qualms. The descent from the legitimate drama was sufficiently bitter to the feelings of a young actor, and I feared that for the future my pretensions to respectability would be four feeted, like those of my quadruped fellow-performers (I beg pardon, for I shan't err a second time)-but I put the affront into my pocket, and the two guineas into the opposite one; when, finding my equili brium perfect, I at once deserted the boards, and took to the sawdust-thro...

THE BUSINESS OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

THE BUSINESS OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE EXPLAINED. [From " Gilbert's Essay on Banking."] ALTHOUGH all the "members of the House,' are called stock-brokers by the public, yet within the House they are divided into two classes, brokers and jobbers. A broker, as the name implies is an agent who buys and sells for his customers out of the House, and he charges them a commission upon dhe amount of the stock. A stock-jobber is a stock-merchant; but he does not deal with the public; he deals only with the brokers; and he is at all times ready either to buy or sell. The price at which he sells is one eighth more than the price at which he buys. If one broker has an order to buy £100 con sols, and another broker has an order to sell £100 consols, these two brokers do not deal together, but both go to a jobber. One will sell his consols to the jobber, say at 90, and the other will buy his consols from the job ber, say at 908. Hence the difference between the buying and the selling price of consuls...

Try ere you Despair!! YOU MAY BE CURED YET !! PILLS AND OINTMENT. -0 WONDERFUL CURE EFFECTED BY HOLLO WAY'S PILLS AND OINTMENT. Copy of a letter from Captain E. F. Ferris, Com manding Rampore Forces, Rohilcund, dated January 15, 1849. IR,-As I deem so wonderful a medicine as Professor HOLLOWAY'S is, ought to be well known, I take the liberty of reporting a miraculous cure here under my own eyes. An old woman aged 50 years, had for the last two years been quite bed ridden, having ENTIRELY lost the use of her legs from the hip joints; the limbs had become quite hard, like horn (what the natives call " Soone.") All feeling quite gone, so much so, that you might cut her, and she was unconscious of pain. When I prescribed Holloway's Treatment and Medicine, her limbs were to all appearance quite DEAD, and with out the slightest feeling. After twelve days perse verance with the Ointment she complained of great painin the limbs, " like the pricking of pins." I still continued the treatment;...

MONSIEUR DE PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

MONSIEUR DE PARIS. IN France, the office of judicial executioner was long an important and even a respect able one, and various rights and privileges of no common nature were attached to it. The finisher of the law was held to be a regular and immediate officer of the crown. Families seem often to have held the place for successive generations. The French newspapers recently announced the death of a man of no slight distinction in his way, M. Sanson, the executioner of Paris, or, as the people of the French capital have em phatically styled this official, " Monsieur de Paris." The progenitors of M. Sanson, for a considerable length of time, have occupied the same situation in the French metropolis, and he himnlf was the m.nn who did the mournful offices of the scaffold to Louis XVI. A writer in the Book of the Hun dred and One has given us an account of M. Sanson, which has, we imagine, a peculiar interest, as well from the character and qua lities of the individual, as from the com...

Sydney News. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

Sydney News. CALIFORNIA.-- We have been favoured with a letter from California, written by a party who went thither from Sydney some time ago, from which we make the following extracts:--" Since I came to the mines I have had very bad success; I am here now about three months and I have not saved more than about £100, although I have gathered a great many more. The only good news I have to tell is that I am in good health. The first place we came to after leaving San Francisco was Stockton city-a city built with nothing but canvas and other such coarse stuff; it is on the banks of the San Joachim river, two days sail from San Francisco. We paid £8 for our passage thither, and fed ourselves: from there we went to Wood's diggings, the com mencement of the mines, a distance of 75 miles in five days; and if ever human beings suffered we did. Whilst on the road we were compelled to use castor oil; we were almost choked with thirst. You have heard of Emu Plains, Moreton Bay, Port Macquari...

Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

Colonial N1ews. SELLING SPIRITS To PASSENGERS.-A case of considerable importance came before Messrs. II. Moor and E. Westby, at the Police Court yesterday morning. 'Mr. Cassels, as Collector of Customs, proceeded against Mr. IH. C. Elliott, the commander of the Jamnes Thomas Foord, for having sold, during the voyage, to James Perkins, a passenger by that vessel, two gallons of brandy, whereby the defendant became liable under the 16th clause of the Passenger's Act, to a penalty of any sum, not exceeding £100. iMr. Gurner conducted the prosecu tion, and Mr. John Stephen the defence.

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

Miscellaneous Extracts. THE MISSISSIPI STEAMIEB.-I had heard much of the dangers of the Mississipi, and even before I left New England, some of my friends partly in jest, and partly for the sake of inspiring me with a due caution, in the choice of vessels and captains, had told me endless stories of the risks we should run. One of them presented to me a newspaper, contain ing a formidable array of last year's casualties. Fifty vessels had been snageed, twenty-seven sunk, sixteen had burst their boilers, fifteen had been run into by other vessels, thirteen had been destroyed by fire, ten wrecked, and seven cut through by ice. The enumeration was followed by an account of the number of persons drowned or injured. Another friend called my attention to a form of an advertise. ment not uncommon in the St.Louis papers headed, thus:-" A fine opportunity of going below." This he explained, " does not mean going down to the bottom, as you might naturally conclude, but it merely signifies " g...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

CALIFORNIA. THi New York Herald of the 3rd of July has a large amount of intelligence from the gold regions: "Much discontent is manifested on the part of the Americans and Californians that the rich deposits of gold are thrown open to foreigners, who are arriving in regular orga nized and armed parties from all places on the Pacific for the sole purpose of digging and carrying away the gold. Such is the influx of foreigners that from Mexico alone 50,000 have gone. Some fifty persons had arrived at Mazatlan from California, who gave a most deplorable account of the state of the country. They found the Yankees too much for them even at their own game -mining. The 'placers' of Sonora are drawing people in that direction. They are said to be richer than those of California." The Monitor Republicano states that, according to the latest accounts received from the land of gold, the extraction of the precious ore from the earth was attended with vast difficulties and dangers; the snow had ...

CRIMINAL DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 22 December 1849

CRIMINAL DISCIPLINE. (From the Atlas, August 22, 1849.) MANKIND have talked for a good many ages about the punishment of criminals. With all their talking they have never dis covered more than three efficient modes all very old ones. They have killed offenders, banished them, and imprisoned them. At the end of so many centuries, experience has done little except unsettle our previous opinions, and we now almost doubt the policy of any single one of our methods of dealing with crime. The two first modes of punishment have one advantage which no one can question. They remove the offender from the possibi lity of offending again the particular society which he has injured. Whatever may be the injury or injustice to the offender him self, society is at all events the gainer. Nay, if without regard to the voice of humanity or clemency, such a system were rigorously carried out, the system might pos sibly end by almost exterminating active offences. The fanatics of the French Revo lation ...
