LACHLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 19 April 1851

LACHLAN. The country in this locality is still in a very deplorable condition, through the scar city of grass and water. Hundreds, we may Bay thousands, of cattle have died lately in this district for want of subsistence. The squatters in the neighbourhood of Blue Plains (once noted amongst the butchera-of Sydnev for the Bplendid cattle which used to be drafted to market fiom that locality,) havev.now deserted their homes, through scarcity of grass and water, and in most -cases have been forced to leave their herds to perish. At present, out of some 28 or 30 squatters, there are but two or three left, the others having been compelled to deBert their stations and ! stocks It is really dis tressing to see the numbers of cattle laying dead along the banks of the dried-up .creeks. ...-.' The catarrh has again made it3 appear ance in this district. The principal suffer ers have been the Messrs. Croaker, Mr. Joseph Wood, and Mr. James White, of Burangong.

Hocal Smell tgence. ANNUAL LICENSING MEETING. The Magistrates assembled in Petty Sessions on Tuesday last to transact the usual business of the annual licensing day. As usual on such occasions there was an extensive gathering of tapsters from the, town and surrounding district, and a large quantity of broadcloth which, in some cases, had not seen daylight since the last 15th of April, had been furbished up for the event, to receive its annual breath of the refreshing breeze, and the light and warmth of the glorious sun. Swallow tails were at a discount ; bright buttons were out of favour ; and \f. did not witness more than about half a dozen black beavers of the Elizabethan style. Taken as a whole, taste appeared to be in the ascendant, and high shirt collars almost scouted. There were thirteen Magistrates present, ovcr-whom the Police Magistrate presided.^ Major Wentworth, the District Inspector of Police, was also in attendance, having returned, from his pre liminary tour of inspe...

THE MTKUltST M j&ESS._ SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1851. 'SIAGNA EST VERITAS ET PHiEVALEBIT.' ELECTORAL DISTRICTS. The Honorable and learned Member for Cook and Westmoreland with his usual happy knack of eaying ridiculous things, gravely twitted Mr. Lamb on the second reading of the New South Wales Electoral Bill, on the little purpose to which he had read history if it had not taught him ' that the towns were always the foremost in pro moting rebellion and disturbance.' To this very astounding piece of intelligence he attaches a moral, but whether as an infer ence or an excrescence he. does not say ; and Mr. Martin's moral is, that on account of their 'tendency to insurrection' ' the preponderance »f political influence should be given to the rural districts.' And this is one of the principal reasons why that most loquacious gentleman supports the measure introduced by government for the division of the colony into electoral dis tricts. Listen to this logic, ye men of Birmingham, a...

CARCOAR. MAGISTERIAL PUNCTUALITY VERSUS THE PUBLICANS. [To the Editor of the "Bathurst Free Press."]   Sir, — This day, Tuesday, the 15th inst., being the day appointed for the granting Publicans' Annual Licences, of course, the parties interested attended at the hour ap- pointed, but after waiting in vain for several hours, for the attendance of a second Ma- gistrate, they were compelled to return home without concluding their business. When it is borne in mind that most of the applicants reside at a very considerable dis- ance in the interior, varying from 50 to 6 miles, it is certainly extremely hard that they should be obliged to suffer such great inconvenience. Mr. Icely being absent in consequence of his duties as a Legislator, requiring his presence in Sydney, it was expected on an occasion of such public im- portance as an Annual Licensing Meeting, that Mr. Rothery would have prevented any inconvenience by attending in his place as a Justice of the Peace.
