ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

ENGLISH NEWS. According to the latest English intelligence which arrived in Sydney on Saturday, September 29th, the Parliamentary Oaths (Jews') Bill was thrown out of the House of Lords on the second reading of the Bill by a majority of 25. Mr. Rothschild imme- diately resigned his seat for the City of London, when the decision became known. Sir William Molesworth's motion for a commis- sion of enquiry into the state of the colonies, which he made on the 26th June, was negatived by a majority of 163 to 89. A Bill was introduced into the House of Com- mons for the purpose of relieving Government from the awkward predicament in which it stood, relating to the point raised by Smith O'Brien and his co- adjutors, viz., that their sentence could not be com- muted to transportation. It was opposed on the ground that the Bill was ex post facto, the oppo- nents to the measure contending that the prisoners ought to be hanged or discharged. The Bill was carried, however, by overwhelming majori...

MULTUM IN PARVO. (From late Australasian Papers.)   Notwithstanding the extent to which smelting is carried on in South Australia, there are new establishments projected.— It has been determined to have two Judges in South Australia. Mr. Mann, who is now acting in consequence of the illness of Mr. Justice Cooper will, it is expected, be ap- pointed the new puisne Judge.—Great dis- satisfaction is expressed in Western Aus- tralia at the new squatting regulations, which are said to tax the squatters four times as much as the regulations in force in New South Wales. —A "Western Australia Land   and Labour Association" has been formed in London, for the purpose of inducing emi- gration to Swan River. — The Western Aus-   tralia Bank had declared a dividend at the rate of 12½ per cent per annum.—The total   number of prisoners tried at the Supreme Court of Van Diemen's Land during the year 1848 was 228; the total number of convictions b...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. We do not identify ourselves with the opin- ions of our Correspondents. SIR, - Should you think the following re- marks upon education worthy a place in   your columns, I shall feel obliged by their insertion. All men agree upon the necessity of edu- cation, although there is great diversity of idea as to its nature, its extent, and its objects. One man wishes his son to receive   what is termed a plain education, that is, to be able to read, write, and cast accounts, and thinks, when he is so far accomplished, that he is enabled to battle with the world, and secure all its advantages. Another is desirous to give his child a liberal education, which, in plain English, means, to stuff his head with as much Latin and Greek as he can acquire between the ages of six and eighteen years, by which his caput is most likely stored with a superabundance of words and a paucity of ideas, and if, after h...

A MODERN JACK SHEPPARD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

A MODERN JACK SHEPPARD. On Saturday week, Mr. Cope, the governor of Newgate, laid before, the committee a lengthened report in , connection with the recent escape of the convict Stradwick, who     made his escape from Newgate on Monday last, some particulars of which we gave in our paper last week. Stradwick, who is in his 25th year, is known to the gaol authori- ties and the police as the first burgular of the day. What were obstacles to others, to him presented not the slightest difficulty.   His daring and skill were commensurate to his success, for he was often in the habit of toising, and playing at skittles, and losing, in the course of an afternoon, from £50 to £100, the whole of which was obtained by robbery. When apprehended, which was for burglary at Pimlico, a person of' the name of Jackson was taken with him; and, when arraigned, the latter pleaded 'guilty,'   declaring that Strudwick was innocent. This declaration, whi...

THE MURDERER RUSH'S CHARACTER PHRENOLOGICALLY DEVELOPED. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 October 1849

THE MURDERER RUSH'S CHARAC-     TER PHRENOLOGICALLY DE- VELOPED.       "WE are not ourselves (says the Norfolk   Chronicle) believers in the so-styled science of Phrenology ; but as many of our readers probably are, they may be interested in     reading some remarks of a Phrenologist upon the peculiar indications of character denoted by the supposed development of certain organs in the skull.—Our cores-   pendent says:—           "I have not learned that Rush was con-   sidered a clever lad ; and having had fre- quent opportunities of inspecting his head, phrenologically, I should say he had very little mental capacity, and extremely limited reflective power. His forehead is small and low—the organs of comparison and casualty but little developed ; his perceptive organs over the eye, size, l...

Settlers' Wholesale Price Current. SYDNEY. Wheat. — This market remains very quiet; The wheat per Sarah was for one of the millers. . Prices are the same as in our last week's report — say from 3s. 9d. to 4s. 3d., according to quality. Flour is dull of sale at £10 per ton Bran, wholesale, lOd. to lid. per bushel. Potatoes. — About 200 tons have arrived from Hobart Town within the last eight days. The first arrivals sold at £5 10s. (bags included), but the price has since fallen to £5. Cattle, Sheep, &c— Good stock, as has been for some time the case, is very scarce; at the same time the market is glutted with rubbish, not above one in ten of which the butchers will have at any price. Accounts received yesterday from the Mui- rumbidgee report that a large qnantity of rain had fallen there, and that the river is almost bank high which will be the means of delaying the arrival, of supply looked for from that quarter. The best cattle that have been oflered to the butchers during...

Miscellaneous Extracts. Thb Misi/eadbrb or thb Working Classbs.~You have been led too easily, and given your confidence too readily. : A class has risen up amongst you, who get their living by agitation and organization. They toil, not with their bands but with their tongues. The beer shop is their fac tory and home. The loom and the plough know-thera not; yet they always affect to speak,- in the name of the working classes. Their harangues glitter -with pikes; and smell' of gunpowder, although they generally contrive to keep ; their own persons out of harm's way,— They ' drill you to clamour, and would drill you to blood and plunder, could they 'do it safely.

They are fed by your enemieB, or pretended friends, to make tools or fools of you for selfish purposes.
