THE LATE MURDER AT LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
THE LATE MURDER AT LIVERPOOL.-At Liverpool Assizes, on Wednesday, John Gleeson Wilson, the man charged with the murder of Mrs. Henrichson, her two chil dren, and a female servant, was put on his trial for the murder of the servant, Mary Parr. The particulars of this case have been already mentioned. The evidence showed, that in March last, Wilson engaged lodgings at Mrs. HIenrichson's, the wife of a master-mariner then on a voyage; the hiring of the lodgings was a pretence, as the man had lodgings elsewhere. Next day, while Mrs. Hinrichson was out, the servant was assailed. Some potatoes were received at the street door by Wilson, who seemed confused. On the return of Mrs. Hinrich son, the assassin assailed her and her chil dren; and then the house was robbed of a number of valuables. The murders were discovered by a youth, who had brought home some earthenware; he could get no answer; and on looking through the key hole, he saw the body of Mrs. Hinrichson lying in the passage. An a...
PRINCE ALBERT A GUAGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
P?INCEr ALBERT A GUAGER.-A correspondent, citing very good authority for his statement, selids us the following :-Ere her Majesty, on the memo rable morning of Friday, Augur t 3, had put her foot on Irish ground, Prince Albert bhad sent for our old pilot, and went on shore to see with his own eyes the beauties of nature, which are so thickly strewn around as if to compensate us for the want of those of art. He toiled up a hill near "Marino," fresh and fasting, and, being weary, went into the cabin to ask for a tumbler of water. " Wisha," says a woman who was mistress of the cabin, " I haven't the tumbler; sorra a one in the house; but ye'r welcome to the water if ye'll take it out of a basin." "That will do, thank you," said the Prince; "but as I am very hot, perhaps you would give me some of your famous mountain dew in it? " "Arrah, now," said the poor woman, ' see if the gentlefolk don't be always after axing me for what I haven't a taste in life of; but, if ye'r honour will go up...
BERMONDSEY MURDER, APPREHENSION OF MANNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
BERMONDSEY MURDER, APPREHENSION OF MANNING. FREDERICK MANNING who eluded the vigil . ance of the police, for three weeks, was at length apprehended in Jersey. The follow ing are the particulars :- Jersey Times Of?ice.--" We are now enabled to announce the gratifying fact that Manning was cap tured last evening, about nine o'clock, and safely lodged in prison. He arrived in this island last Thursday week, Aug. 16th, and took lodgings at Mr. Berry's, the Navy Arms, Mulcaster-street, where he remained until the following Thursday morning, and on his then leaving desired that his bed should be kept for him, as he would return on Satur day. While there he went out early in the morning and returned in the evening, gene rally under the influence of liquor, of which he drank more before he retired for the might. He had once arranged with the ,captain of a sailing vessel to go with him early in the morning to Guernsey, but did not get up in time. From his quitting the Navy Arms until yesterd...
THE EFFECTS OF BURIAL SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
THE EFFECTS OF BURIAL SOCIETIES. A PooR half-famished working man, surrounded by a starving and naked family, has the prospectus of a Burial Society placed in his hands stating that, for the payment of one halfpenny a week, if the registered child dies after 13 weeks, the subscriber receives 30s.; and at the expiration of 26 weeks £3, for the purposes of interment. By subscrib ing to six of these Societies, the father calculated that he should, in the case of his infant's death, receive £18, whilst the funeral expenses would not exceed 1Bs.; and so, according to his reasoning it were better to sacrifice one for the benefit of the whole. In pursuance of his resolution, the artisan en rolled his infant child as a member of six clubs ! This was rather moderate, for Mr. Chadwick in his report has mentioned a man resident in Manchester who insured his children in nineteen different clubs. The term of thirteen weeks from the date of the respective entries had expired, and the little membe...

Sydney News. THE LATE MURDER AT PITT WATER. Collins and Poyner have been tried and ac quitted of the murder of Foley, at Pitt Water, the details of which have appeared from time to time in the columns of this .jnurnal. THE LIVERPOOL BENC?r.-It came to our knowledge in the course of last month, that an enquiry had taken place at Liverpool, into some charges preferred against Mr. Parsons, one of the magistrates of that dis trict; and we were informed, upon autho rity we had no reason to doubt, that when the magistrates required Mi'. Parson's at tendance, he sent back a message of a most impertinent and ungentlemanly character. On the 22nd November, we mentioned this circumstance in the Herald. Mr. Parsons, the next day, denied through the columns of the Herald that the statement was cor rect. Since then, however, Mr. Parsons has been advised to commence, and has actu ally commenced proceedings against us for a libel. We consider it therefore due to our selves and Mr. Parsons to state,...

Ya.a.s," answered Monsieur, " I am; for this dog he brings to my recollection my own very pretty leetle dog at home." " You love dogs, then ?" "0 ! ya-as, I love de dogs, de cats, de osses, and do asses, and, in short, every thing dat is BEASTLY.".
FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
FOREIGN. FRANCE. - The following is our corres pondent's letter, dated Sunday, 5 P.m. :--"I learn that accounts have very lately reached the Government from Rome, which, if con fidence can be placed in them, would go far to show that, after all its vicissitudes, the Roman question is in a fair way of settle ment. On hearing these gratifying tidings, I [made :inquiries in a quarter certain of being well informed, and the answer given me is totidem verbis, " there is much more hope at this moment of a satisfactory settle ment than there has been for the last three weeks. That the party who gave me this answer is always well informed aI m certain, and that there is no ground orimotive i~r hi; stating a fact unfounded, or essentially in correct, I am convinced. Should the motive assigned for entertaining hopes of the solu tion of a question which has created so much embarrassment to the Government, and brought on it no small share of obloquy, be equally well founded, I can see no reason...
EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
EUROPEAN NEWS. THn Blonde froin Gravesend, 16th Septem ber, with 225 Emigrants, chiefly Scotch, has brought London papers up to the previ ous day. On the same day that this vessel arrived in Sydney harbour, the Artimesia from London, 5th September, put in for a pilot; she was bound for Port Stephen with 40 Emigrants for the Australian Agricul tural Company. We regret to state, that cholera broke out in the Blonde, whilst she was lying off Deptford. There were 37 cases of this frightful malady, out of which seven terminated fatally. Political news there was none. The Queen was at Balmoral, where the Premier, Earl Grey, and several £ 'uh m~;nisters were also residing, and it was said there was no government officer in London of higher grade than a.Police Magistrate. The domestic news is summed up in one sentence-the cholera was steadily increas ing. In the week ending September 8th, the deaths in London from cholera, were upwards of 2000 ; in one day in the week, the deaths were 450, ...
CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
CALIFORNIA. BY the last arrivals from the Gold Country we have the following account of the pro gress of the city of St. Francisco:- A month's absence lands me in the new city. I look in vain for half the houses I knew a month or two ago. The " old barns" have been pulled down and stately edifices rise on their ruins. The growth of San Francisco is the last wonder of the world; be it the eighth or sixteenth. I had almost called it the greatest. The streets have the crowded, busy, excited aspect of the most crowded and excited portions of New York. Men are dashing to and fro, their hands full of papers and their heads of grand projects. The California style of architecture, wocd and canvas blended, half house, half tent, is rapidly giving place to massive and orna mental edificies, two, three and four stories high-Merchants' Exchange and Reading Room-half a dozen grand hotels, and scores of large warehouses, are now going up as fast as gold and master-builders, and hard working carpe...
WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
WOOL. TunE following state of the Liverpool Wool Market will be read with satisfaction: Sa-turday, September 1.-Since the date of our last circular, business has proceeded satisfactorily throughout the manufacturing districts, the removal of the Danish blockade, together with the satisfactory accounts from must of the markets abroad, and the healthy state of trade at home, having led to consi derable orders for goods, so that the manu facturing population are fully employed, and there seems every reason to expect that a good autumn and winter trade may be looked for. Consumers being well stocked, the demand for fine colonial and home wools has been rather less active, but prices are well supported. Our market for low foreign wools has not been very brisk, there being little to offer by private contract of the more current descriptions.
Miscellaneous Extracts. A PYRENEAN BANDIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
Miscellaneous Extracts. A PYRENEAN BANDIT. " Oun peaceful mountains," says a letter from Lave lanet, in the department of Ariege, south of France, " have been for some months agitated by occur rences of an unusual kind. The sole and constant subject of conversation is a bandit, named Tragine, whose consummate daring and extraordinary career have made his name too famous among the Py renees." This letter was dated some months before the close of the past year, and since that period the adventures of the person indicated in it have been of so remarkable a character, that we conceive them likely to interest our readers, as well as to make us all beneficially sensible of the great blessings which we possess in a country of order and good govern ment. Enjoyed daily, such advantages are too apt to be forgot, to the nursing, sometimes, of uncalled for discontent. Pierre Sarda, familiarly known by the name of Tragine, is a man of about thirty-five years of age, and, though of the common hei...
Original Poetry. TO [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
-0 To Another year hath pass'd away, And now I gaze without a sigh Upon thy form once lov'd too well; And I can calmly meet thine eye. For love's impassioned dream is o'er, Time, stern reality and pride Have banish'd all my love for thee :j I have no secret now to hide. I tremble not when thou art near, I blush not now beneath thy gaze; But when there rushes to my heart The memory of other days When thou wert worshipped, nay ador'd, And in my heart as in a shrine I treasur'd vain delusive hopes That happiness might yet be mine. Then, only then the crimson blush Mounts to my cheek and tints my brow, I might have known the foolishness Of earthly hopes-where are they now ? Wither'd and crush'd-yet I am free, Love's galling chain too long I wore, But now 'tis broken, and my heart Like thine is cold, I love no more. ELLA. Goulburn, Dee. 31, 1849,

Cotta Wallih, on view of tile body of Donald M'Donald, who died on the previous day, through injuries received from a fall from a horse on Christmas day. It appeared from the evidence adduced, that the deceased and Ewen M'Lachlan, who were partners in a farm.-st Roslyn, accompanied by their wives went to pay a visit to a Mr. M'Donald who resided about ten miles off. On their return the same afternloon, the deceased who was driving tilhe two women in a cart, while M'Lachlan rode alongside on horseback, appeared to be so tipsey hat it was considered advisable for him to ride M'Lachlan's horse, and allow that person to get into the carl and drive the womlen home.

Mandelson, of the Goulburn Hotel, appeared to prefer a com plaint against his hired servant, Joseph Neweombe. Mr. Hamilton Walsh, who appeared for the de fendant, took a preliminary objection. He said that a summons had been issued for the appearance of Neweombe which did not set forth any offence, simply stating that " he had omitted to do his usual work." He submitted that his client need not ap pear and plead, as there was an uncertainty in the summons, the offence with which he was charged not being stated. The Court said that the.case must be dismissed, but that a fresh summons might be issued. AssaULT.-Jamles Walker appeared upon sum muns to answer the complaint of James Ward, for having, on the 1st January last, assaulted him by tiroirintg a brick at his nose, " against the form of the statute in such case made and provided."

Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
Colonial News. -0 SYDNEY RAILWAY.-The Goulburn peo ple seem to be kicking against the appoint ment of Mr. Cowper to the joint office of President of the Board of Directors and Manager of the Company; the latter ap pointment they looked upon as being calcu lated to prejudice the interests of the com pany by its conferring an excess of power on one director and relieving the manager from proper control. It is much to be lamented that in a matter of so much im portance, anything like schism should occur, and it is equally to be hoped that this stumbling block in the way of the advance. ment of the railroad will be speedily removed.--Sydney Correspondent to the Melbornue:Daily News, Dec. 18. IEarAL ENTE'r RISE-Mr. Rac, agunsmith of this town, has announced his intention of ascending in a balloon of his own construction the day after Christmay day, and as a proof of the reality of his intentions, we have been allowed to inspect the l'rial machine itself which is all but completed.

THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THEi: SYDNEY RAILWAY COMPANY. THE annual meeting of the shareholders of: the Railway Company will be held in Syd ney on Tuesday next, therefore we think we cannot do better than again to warn those interested in the success of the greatest un dertaking of the colony, against the cabal which has been formed in the metropolis to give countenance and applause to the late acts of the Directory. We do not know how the personal friends of Mr. Cowper in the other districts acted,. when they were called upon to stir up the shareholders in their neighbourhood, when the time arrived for sending down the proxies to vote in a board of Directors; but if they acted with as much finesse as distinguished that or those in the district of Goulburn, we consider that Mr. Charles Cowper owes them something more than a debt of gratitude for placing him in a position to appoint him self President and Manager of the Company, with the very modest salary of £600. The extraordinary unani...
THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 5 January 1850
THE NEW YEAR. TIME-honored custom calls upon us at this season of the year to approach the reader somewhat closer than we usually do, and meet him with less of " the pomp and pride" with which we are ordinarily surrounded, and which in reality give importance to our sentiments, and a peculiar force to our opinions. Before we allude to ourselves and our connection with the reader, we would say a few words on general matters. The past twelve months witnessed many hard struggles by our fellow colonists, struggles with a power which threatened the destruction of our political existence and our moral condition; struggles too with poverty and adversity, produced by a depreciation in our chief export, upon the sale of which depends the commercial prosperity of the colony. But we can look back with. satis faction and behold the machinations of the statesmen thwarted, and the days of depres sion passed away ! Our retrospective glance is, indeed, a happy one; we have battled the ground of pri...

He had recourse to the best medical aid, but to no purpose, indeed, in such cases the usual treatment never does any good, he then resolved upon trying Holloway's Ointment and Pills, and to the surprise of all who knew his deplorable state, these wonderful medicines alone restored him to perfect health and the complete use of his limbs.
