IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 May 1848

ICELAND. CFrom. the ? Dublbii STraleej and Cork Papers, , up totheGth January. J \ . Famine in Kiltonor'a. — Mr. Andrew Quin, writing from\Kilfenora on the un paralled' sufferings of the poor, concludes a pathetic appeal in a lew words—' Scarcely half a dozen families in those parishes will have sufficient food until harvest. No em ployment whatever, though there pre thou sands of acres waste; and thousands of human bejngs perishing, who, had there been a little energy amongst the landlords, would thereby support themselves, and en rich the owners of- those dreary and cheer less, wastes. .Instead of being thus em ployed, the poor people are perishing in the ditches. Scarcely an hour has elapsed, since I visited a whole family, seven in number, all in fever, a few sticks and straws laid over a turf bank, , their only shelter against the torrents of rain, the sleet and storms that prevailed for the last few weeks with unusual violence. Out of the entire number not one was able to reac...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 May 1848

PTHE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1S4S. ' Jn the present state of the Colony, and as regards the future, for many years yet to come, it is very clear that a constant, regu lar, and systematic supply of labour will be in demand; and it is equally clear, accord ing to. the general course of human affairs, that all such labour will be adequately re munerated. If, therefore, the Mother Country has a superabundance of labourers she cannot adequately remunerate them, that is, she cannot pay them so much as will provide them the ordinary necessaries of life ; and, consequently, her labouring classes must be reduced to the patient endurance of undeserved privations, or be forced into the commission of crime. That such is the general state of Great Britain, we presume few persons will deny. And, so long as her present National System is pursued, it can never be otherwise than it is, except that, as population increases, so will irremunerative labour, wretchedness, and crime. That the ...

MARKET. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Bathurst, May 5, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 May 1848

MARKET. To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, May 5, 1848. - Sir, — I beg leave, through the medium of your columns to express the strong feeling of dissatis faction prevailing1 amongst the residents of the town and neighbourhood, at. the slow, or rather no, progress making by the commissioners towards the establishing of a market or markets. At their first meeting it soon became evident there was a differ ence of opinion on many subjects connected with the market, and a strong party feeling existed among them, the numbers being equally .divided :, at this meeting three of the commissioners were content that the market should be hold on the site originally laid out on the chart for that purpose ; three were for aDDlviner to the Governor to grant land for holding a market on the square on which the church is building, the numbers being equal, and as neither party felt inclined to give way, a medium course was proposed by one of them, viz. , that application should be made...

New Division of Parties. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 May 1848

'SStexa Division of Parties. Lord George Bb«tinck and Mr. D'Israeli deserted their allies and friends on Friday last, and went into the same lobby with Sir Robert Peel. The fact is ominous. More over, the unnatural defection of the noble leader and his coadjutor -was not upon a ?question of ordinary policy, but upon a question involving the Christian character of the country — so deeply involving it that many of the firmest supporters of Sir Robert Peel, through good report and evil, bound to the honorable baronet by ties which are not easily broken, felt it impossible to vote with their leader on the occasion, and to sacrifice their paramount duty to God to the claims of friendship, however urgent and strong. We should ill undeistand the re sponsibility with which we are invested were we to record the disgrace which has fallen upon the Conservative party without the expression of our deepest regret and bitterest disappointment. It would hence forth be traitorous to attempt, absurd ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. O'Connell Plains. April 27. 1848. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 May 1848

©riflmal Cmrc^pffifBeitce* To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. O'Connell Plains. Aral 27. 1848 . In your paper some three weeks ago a letter signed Minto was published. The writer com mences with commending Government upon the fresh land Regulations as regard right of hack run. ' I presume every sensible man must duly appreciate the forthcoming system,' so far Minto. so good, but when he states his abhorrence ot hxmg the upset price of Government Land at five shil lings per acre, and gives it the title ' Double Dis tilled Damnation ' System ; it is in my humble opinion both irrelevant and foolish, as I think damnation has nothing to do with purchase of land, or right of back run. Miuto supports the twenty shilling per acre system. Under the pre sent Regulations I can get land at Five Pounds per 640 acres, per annnm. To purchase this quan tity of land , I must pay £640, that is supposing I get it at Government upset price. Now? any com mon business man. knows that according to th...

Latest English News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 May 1848

Eiatest English News. The Commercial condition of the country was rapidly improving ; the infix of bullion continued, and trade' was rallying.

THE ORIGIN OF SPINSTER. To spin with art in ancient times has been Thought not beneath the noblest dame, or queen : From that employ, then, maidens had the name Of spinsters which the moderns seldom claim. But since to cards each damsel turns her mind, And to that dear delight is more inclin'd, Change the fair name of spinster to a harder, And let each maiden now be called — a carder.

CARCOAR (From our Correspondent. ) The New Church at Carcoar being at length completed, was opened for Divine Service on Sunday last, upon which occa sion, a most impressive sermon was deliver ed by the officiating minister, the Rev. Mr. Naylor. The building is one of the neatest of its kind to be found in the colony, the architectural design being in the pure style of gothic elegance and simplicity, and re flecting the highest credit upon the builder and contractor/Mr. Kirkpatrick. We wish we could say as much for the parsonage house — when will it be in a state of com pletion ? Echo answers — when ! Court of Requests. — Great complaints are made by the inhabitants of our town and district, in consequence of no Court of Requests being now held in the town, which we believe is owing to the Government hav ing failed to appoint a registrar.
