Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Bathurst, February 8, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

. -©cifltnal GavveAsaniiente, To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, February 8, 1818. Sir,— I hail with pleasure your endea vour to establish a newspaper in Bathurst, and I cordially wish that the fullest success may crown your enterprise. I am aware that at the present time an effort of this kind is likely to encounter many difficulties, but I ana of opinion, that perseverance' (especially in a good cause) will succeed. It almost invariably happens, in a district which has never been represented by the press in its own immediate precincts, that an apathy exists extremely unfavourable to the exertions of a projector, but it is in such a district that a newspaper is most especially needed. When the political horizon is unclouded and commerce in its various branches in a state of activity, there is comparatively little want of an Advocate — althongh, at such a period, there could be no doubts of an ample circu lation, hot that men's miuds are then more keenly alive to its ...

THE NEW CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

THE NEW CONSTITUTION. It is matter of great regret to us that want of space aud time has prevented; us from giving at any length a report of the meet ing held yesterday at Bathurst, to consider the propriety of petitioning ^the .Home Government against the above proposed measure. We fully coincide with the ma jority of the speakers, that it is an unheard of extension of power to take ; from us our undoubted right as Britons, by virtually disfranchising us. If they are not inclined to improve oui* condition, for Heaven's sake let them not make it worse. With respect to District Councils, we are totally opposed to them in their present shape. There is, lowever, much to be said in favor of local government and local taxation for local purposes— to which we shall call attention at another opportunity.

MASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

MASONRY. Eloquent Speech of Alexander Grant, Esq., of Derry, at the Opening of the Gillespie Monument in Comber.. Ladies, Brethren, and Gentlemen,— Few circumstances could occur, which would give me more satisfaction than that of appearing in the character of a Mason, on the present occasion j and I comply, with great cheerfulness, with the request that has been made that I would offer a few words on our ancient, hallowed, and mys terious institution— ancient, because it is coeval with time, and its perfect develop ment can only be known in eternity — hal- lowed, because its doctrines and precepts are such as to ensure Divine approbation — mysterious, because it is admitted an anomaly in the history of the earth ; for, if we contrast Masonry with the records of the world, we will find that Kingdoms and Em pires, Principalities, and mighty States, have passed away, and are either forgotten or un known, save from the small space they occupy in the history of the world ; but Masonry wi...

Original [?]uetrn. THE VIOLET. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

Original Poetry. THE VIOLET. Some praise the beauties of the rose, Some like the sweet carnation's hue — To me the loveliest flower that blows Is the dark violet's fragrant blue.   Embossom'd in the grassy vale, With drooping head it shuns the sight,   It's perfume, wafted by each gale, Fills all the soul with pure delight.           Yet still it seems, to avoid the stare Of every idle looker on,                 Although its fragrance fills the air,   Its wishes are to bloom unknown. Then let me like the violet live, Unheeded and unknown to fame,   Save when some kindly act may give A transient merit to my name.

MR. COBDEN AT BERLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 February 1848

MR. COBDEN AT BERLIN. The following is the speech delivered by Mr. Cobden at the recent dinner given him at Berlin :—-" Allow me, gentlemen, to express to you my warmest thanks for the honor you have conferred upon me. It is with heartfelt satisfaction that I find myself sur- rounded by so many learned men of this enlightened capital, who participate in my views in favor of free trade. Gentlemen,   during my long sojourn on the continent I laid down the rule, and I always acted up to it, of never meddling in the internal policy of the different countries I have visited, and it would be an ungracious act if I were to deviate from that rule in the present instance. Your land is too rich in patriots, too rich in talent and learning, to need the aid of a foreigner to instruct you on a question bo intimately connected with German interests ; nor can I forget that it was Prussia's states men who, thirty years ago, gave the example of a liberal commercial policy. Unhappily, at...

To the Editor of The Bathurst' ''Advocate. Bathurst, February 18, 1848. Sir,— Having heard that at the Meeting of the Market Commissioners, on Monday last, it was moved by Mr. Patrick White, and acceeded to by the others, that an application should be made to the Governor to grant a space of ground on the block on which the Church is built, for holding a market. Although I am fully satisfied this appli cation will meet with a direct and positive refusal,, yet I think a few remarks on the subject would not be out of place. When the town was first laid out, it was clearly and distinctly understood that this block should be reserved as an open space for the health and re creation of the inhabitants of the town, and that the only building that would be allowed to be erected on it, would be a church; under this im pression some of the most handsome buildings in the town have been erected with fronts to this square ; and I consider that it would be unfair and highly unjust to the owners o...

dBrtsfual Corrc^pcrittfcncc. To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. -?' ? Bathurst/ February 17, 1848. Sir, — At a time when the colony is alive on the subject of Earl Grey's proposed constitution, it will be well to remind the Members of the Legislative Council to look well into their own conduct, and see whether they are not open to the charge of having encouraged the attempt to introduce it. It will not be sufficient to convince us of their inno cence of this charge, that they now strenuously resist the introduction of the new, constitution, and denounce it as unconstitutional ;. for if at any time, or in any instance, they have disregarded our rights and privileges as British subjects, in passing laws for'the government of the colony, they will have tacitly encouraged this attempt. Now, let us see whether there are not measures passed into law by the Legislative Council in principle scarcely less unconstitutional than the law proposed by Earl Grey. Amongst their Acts we find, a...

THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 February 1848

T HOUGHT S. When Hope delights the youthful mind with scenes of coming bliss, And tells of other scenes as near, and sweeter far than this ; How oft the show is frail and false, and like the faithless sand, That sinks the mariner's frail barque when near the wished for land. When Pleasure tells the soul of man, that soon the object sought, Shall satiate with happiness beyond his utmost thought ; How soon when this attained, the good, in truth appears to be As false as fruit that thrives around the dark Iudean sea. When high Ambition tempts the mind to take a fearless flight, To soar to eminences far beyond the vulgar sight ; Alas I when there, how oft is found the dark and deathly doom. That waits npon the bird of night that dares deseit its gloom. Clericus.

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, February 18, 1848. Sir,— I did not expect that my pen would so soon be called into requisition again to animadvert on the conduct of our Bathurst Traps, but alas, such is the fact ! Oh Monday last, a man generally known by the cognomen of ' Crowey the shin gler' was in one of the streets of the town, endeavouring to amuse his friends with some of his gambols, ' when four constables pounced upon him; the man made resistance, when the worthy four man -handled him, viz., two taking hold of his legs, and two his arms, and in this shape were conveying him to the watch-house, when three of the same brotherhood joined in the procession to see fair play, and that four constables should not be defeated by one little fellow (about 5 feet 3). Arrived at the watch house, the keeper refused to receive Crowey into custody — fully satisfied that the man was not drunk: reference was had to the Police Magistrate, who immediately ordered him to bo dis...
