Local Intelligence. BATHURST QUARTER SESSIONS. LARCENY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 April 1851

Hocat Intelligence. BATHURST QUARTER SESSIONS, LARCENY. Michael Quinn was indicted for stealing a coat . and ; handkerchief, the .property of John M'Eown, at Kelso, on the 3rd inst. The prisoner pleaded guilty to getting through a window (!) but not guilty to the charge of stealing. According to M'Eown's evidence, it ap peared that he was at the Cottage of Con tent on the night of the robbery, and retired to his bed-room in company with the priso ner about 1 1 o'clock. He lay down for a short time with his clothes on, and em ployed himself reading a novel. The priso ner asked him why he did not take off his slothes, and if ever he used'auch a weapon as that, showing him a whip handle loaded with lead at the end, and remarked that there was a ' barber walking to-night,' a cant phrase amongst the sleight-of-hand gentry, signifying that some one was prow ling about in quest of plunder. He (wit ness) fell asleep, and was awoke about one o'clock, when he found the window of the room up, ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 April 1851

Local Intelligence. The Annual Licensing Meeting.— Our atten- tion has been directed to that portion of our report of the proceedings of the annual licensing meet- ing, in which we have made Mr. Macintosh say, on behalf of his client Mr. Minehan, that Mr. Rodd was the one more especially referred to of four magistrates who had come to court with a deter- mination to oppose his (Minehan's) application for a license, and that "as one gentleman had ex-   pressed himself that morning, as guided by his feelings in his decisions, and as his feelings were known to be hostile to his client, he hoped it would be hardly necessary to suggest that it would only be proper that all four, but the one more particu larly alluded to, should withdraw." With reference to this portion, as well as the remainder of the report, we can only state that we wrote from memory, not having made any notes, of the pro- ceedings, and as the meeting took place on Tues- day, and the article was not writte...

THE CARCOAR BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 April 1851

THE CARCOAR BENCH. We cannot say that we admire the rampant radicalism of ' a Radical Sinner, but no Publican,' whose effusion we published in our last. It ap- pears to us that the object he had, or professed to have in view, would have been much better accom- plished by giving a plain statement of the local grievance complained of, commenting thereon, and pointing out some remedy, than by casting general reflections at the colonial magistracy, and writing Ichabod over their doors. Amongst that body, as amongst all others, there are just, humane and conscientious men, who neither would nor could, from mere class considerations, allow themselves to be influenced to give a verdict in opposition to their conrictions. There are those also who arc wil- ling to reap all the honor which the ' J.P.' affix confers, without troubling themselves with its duties ; and last though not least, gentlemen may be found who entertain very extraordinary notions of the power and dignity which that affix...

Miscellaneous Extracts. DRAMAS FOR EVERY DAY LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 May 1851

Jfttscellaneous Extracts. DRAMAS FOR EVERY DAY LIFE. , CFrom Punch. J We have been told— till we are tired of hearing] the information — that ' All the World's a ' Stage.' yet, when we look around us, we find no dramas, of every day life, written expressly for ' all the men and women ' who 'are only players.' The . social members of the sock must find them selveB much embarrased occasionally by the , want of a rcpeatoire, and if they really do '.' play many parts,' their acting must con-* ? sist of what, in the language of th^e green ' room, is called 'gag ;' inasmuch as there is nothing 'set down for them,' and conse quently, however anxious they might be to adhere to Hamlet's rule, they would find it impossible to do so. Taking pity upon our fellow actors on the great stage of the world, 'who are in the dilemma so com tnonly complained of by the professional players, who are slways lamenting that they have no pieces written expressly for them, we have undertaken the task of writin...

O'CONNELL PLAINS RACES. The annual sports held at O'Connell on Easter Monday, were unusually well atten ded this season, and on no occasion have they afforded more general satisfaction than on tha present one. As usual a few Bathurst gents gave their attendance, amongst whom the gay and sprightly tandem driver from the West End took a prominent place, Good sport, good cheer, and a disposition to enjoy both, helped the day off very plea-? sanlly. * FIRST RACE.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Bathurst Free press. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 May 1851

On'gmal -&orrcspon«ftnce, [7b the Editor of the '? Bathurst Free press.] Sir, — Observing a letter from Mr. George Larnach ia your last publication, in which he first asked n question respecting the light of the public to inspect the Govern ment Gazette, and afterwards, whether the officers of the Court are privijsged to insult people who go thither with that object, I beg to make a few.' remarks thereon. As I happened to be present when the alleged insult took place, I beg to state that Mr. Larnach has given a very incorrect yersion, of the matter. So far from any rudeness or. insolence being offered to Mr. Larnach, tbs manner of the person alluded to was comparatively mild. He merely informed Mr. L. that it was a breach of the rules of the place to allow any person unconnected with the Police Office to look at the Gazette, when all in g, moment that gentleman be came extremely violent and abusive—a cir cumstance which surprised me the more a* I have known Mr. Larnach for a...

English Extracts. A CONTRAST IN COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 3 May 1851

Snglfe?) 15*tracts 11 A CONTRAST IN COLONIZATION. . . fFromt7ie Spectator. J Fifteen years ago. the site of the present vcolony of South Australia was an uninhab ited wilderness. The founders of the settle ment, wishing to try an experiment in co Jonization, selected, a spot for their opera tions far removed from the disturbing influ ence of any neighbouring colony. The nearest human beings, except a few mise . arable savages, were many hundred raijes distant. The country was but little known, had never been properly explored, and had never probably been inhabited by a white man. The first -European. inhabitants were the first settlers, who landed in 1836. The new settlement was regarded with jealousy by the older colonies of Van Die men's Land and New. South Wales, which .have never afforded it any assistance. It owes nothing to the Government of the mother-country, but was deeply injured by ? its two first governors, whom its friends at ' home ? managed to get recalled for miscon ...
