Tribute to the Press. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 September 1848
Tribute to the Press. The Press may be truly said to be the reflector of a community,--the prime mover and main spring of society,- the sheathed sword that keeps the tyrant in subjection, that guards the weak against the strong, against the tyrant, and against- the oppressor; and which assigns to every man the just medium of his power. In all parts of the world, where the banner of right and civilization waves, has peculiar homage been done to that freedom which should invest it, in the words of the memorable Jonius, I' The Palladium of the Civil and Religious Rights of Freemen, wherever they may be, of whatever creed-of whatever class." - From 'Pencillings at Eve'.

TUESDAY, 5EPTfl5IBEB 10. Before Capt. Rosst, J.P., and Lieut. M0ocTeo MERIE. DaouKAoDs,--T!le money market appears to have been very easy during the past week, and a good deal of cash changed hands with the publicans. Eaves' stocks closed without any alteration. There was a fair business done in watch-house securities"." and the Hospital bought in equally with the Crown. The following sold outi--Benjamin White, Margaret Doyle, and Thomas Cook.

BERRIMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 September 1848
EBERRZ1MA. POLICE COURT, SEP. 13.--Before J. THeoeBY, Esq., J.P., Messrs. NICHOLsON, J.P., and Dr BiAsNsBY, J.P. Mrs. Barton, a pretty widow-bewiched, appeared to answer the summons issued against her for the sum of £0, for the cartsge of a certain quan tity of fencing materials. It appeared, that the plaintiff was indebted the like sum to Mr. Joseph Levy, of the " Victoria," who being present at this J.w-dicial enquiry, had no objection to take a specimen (in a legal form) of the fair lady's ealigraphy for the amount, if such would be agreeable to all parties, upon condition that " a leetle interest was added, just as a matter of form." Their worships could not oblige Mo as a matter of form, or in any other way, but gave a verdict against the lovely Christian for the amount sued for. BLACK ITOItATIU OE..l-errima appears to be blessed with the presence of beautiful widows, but MIrs.

A~ well-known gentlemau Mr;' B *,- appeared on a summons charged with drunkenness, for ?vhioh he was fined in the sunm of 6L 2a. fid.

We un derstand that the gallant Major who presided bn the Bench, had recommended Mr. B -, when he met him at- the flop giyen.at tlhe" Royal:" in Goulburn, to pay the lushingtoln.s fine, thereby shewing that at no time the worthy magistrate can " sink the shop."'
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 September 1848
J To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald SIn,-On a former occasion I called your at tention, and that of the public, to the abominable stenches that every where assailed the inhabit ants of this town, and one of your most talented correspondents, Ella, wrote to you on the subject of the drains that emptied themselves into the streets. I am glad to tind that both, these nui. Ssances have almost entirely ceased. It is a proof that the press already exercises a just and Spowerful influence over the members of this O community. S' The dust, or rather sand, which, borne on the N, .ings of the wind, penetrates every house, and j" almost blinds those who, like myself, are often oi obliged to iraverse the streets, is another into lerable nuisance. " Brickfielders," as they are i'called in Sydney, are here during the summer 6 season of almost daily occurrence, and the plea Ssures of beiug enveloped in a whirlwinid of sand .'"an only be'iuagined by those who have expe rienced it.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 September 1848
To the Editor of the G(oulburn Herald. Sin,--In your last issue you had several very sensible, and judicious remarks on the question of our New South Wales Aristocracy. For these remarks you are entitled to the thanks ofU every mani,who has sense enough to discern that-our colonial society is made up of those who have .risen ito ,consequence by the liberality of the British Government, or. by other favorable 'ir cumstances. Iii fact there is no aristocracy in this'colony. Look at the claimants to this dis. tinction, and at one glance it will be very evi dent that they would make the claim, not because high birth is on. their side, but because apparent wealtl is possessed by them, either in the shape of flocks or herds, or of thousands of TIMBERED acres. In a colony like this, where every thing must be for years in a transitory state, it is ridiculous for any fortunate parties to put themselves up as incipient nobles. They may be among our moneyed nobles this year, and next year, by ...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 September 1848
TEE GovwnaOR.-We regret: to' s`tate, tha t? from' letters received yesterday,. His Excellency has been compelled to postpone his.visit to Gonlburn, owing to the indisposition of his son. SUvMER BzvEnaoEs.--T ihere is an excellent opening in town for a manufacturer of soda water, lemonade, raspberry vinegar, and other pleasant summer drinks. A few individuals, obscurely situated, have attempted the manufac ture of the genuine article, but few of the towns people know of their existence, as they carry on their trade in a very private manner. BEaaariA.--Our readers will observe in our advertising columns an announcement from Mr. M'Mahou, of the Berrima Inn, of that town-an old Peninsular soldier. We understand he is one of the first inhabitants of Berrima. Every delicacy that the mqst refined "gourmand" may desire, will be found at this hostelrie, with that essential to real comfort-civility-which in this go.a-long colony is not always to be found. We consequently venture to predic, sh...
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. Queanbeyan. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 September 1848
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. 7" ?"' QueanbeYan. Sc,--I think this town is the only one of any importance in the colony that cannot boast of one of those gentlemea termed Commissioners of the Supreme Court of New South Wales for t?.king affidavit?. I see no reason why we should be left without one, and I am sure were the sub ject brought under the notice of His Excellency the Governor, one would be at once appointed. There are many eligible persons; for instance, the Clerk of the Bench. At present, if any person has occasion to make an affidavit required to be laid before the Su preme Court, he has to go a distance of sixty miles. I do not say that this happens very fre quently, but I dare say it occurs as often as in any other district. At all events, the appoint ment of a Commissioner would entail no addi tional expense on the country. I send you these few hlnes, hoping that if they are deemed worthy of insertion in your excellent journal, they may meet the eye of some mem...
EXECUTION OF FRANCIS OR DIAMOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 September 1848
EXE,CU;TION OF FRANCIS OR DIAMOND. [FnOM THE SYDNEY MORNING ADVEITISER, sEPTEMBER 28, 1848.] Tlts unhappy culprit suffered the last penalty of the law yesterday morning, in front of Darling bust Gaol,inu~the presence of several hundreds, iwho were drawn thither by thoughtless curiosity, or a morbid craving after all that stimulates the palate; that umental intoxication which is too often shared by mankind. The deadly anguish of a fellow-ereature passing through all the ter rible scenes in the adminiistration of justice, from the first examination of the criminal to the last dread moment upon the fittal drop, is the feverish draught which gives nourishment to snuch beings; an execution, an awful accident, or a fire, are dearer to them than the calin atid quiet scenes of every day life. Few in the crowd yesterday, fr6dm the lawless ruffian down to the child of six years old cared about the in nocence or guilt of him who was about to suffer; or whether his sentence was just or unjust; ...
Select Poetry. THE SILK WORM'S WILL [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 September 1848
THE SILK WORMI'S WIL.L nY 1ISs H. F. GOULD. On a plain rush hurdle a silk worm lay, When a proud yonug princess came that'waiy. the haughty child of a human kin Threw a sidelong glance at the humble thing, That took with a silent gratitude From the mulberry-leaf her simple food And shrunk, half scorn and half disgust, Away from her sister child of dust Declaring she never yet could see Why a reptile form like thiis should be, And that she was not made with nerves so firm As to calmly stand by a " crawling worm !" With mute forbearance tile silk worm took The taunting words and the spurning look. Alike a stranger to self nudl pride, lShe'd no disquiet from aught beside, And lived of a meekness and peace possessed, WVhich these debar from the hluman breast. She only wished, for the harsh abuse, T'o find some way to become of use To the haughty daughlter of lordly mau, And thius did she lay a noble plau, To teach her wisdom and make it plain That tile humble worm was not made in vain: ...
Original Poetry. MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 September 1848
MEMORY. On for a draught of Lethe's stream, To wash away from memory, The uniforgotten past, and end This long long dream of misery. For from my soul undtlying grief, Can never but with life depart; And though I join with mirth and song, The canker worm is at my heart. I brenthe no sigh, T shed no tear, Calm and unruittled is my brow; And frienls rejoice to see me smile, And thiinkl that I nam happy now. Anid ohl! for worlds that should not know, The lthousghts that fill this aehling breast; Like a voicano's smothered fires, i Never extinguished, though at rest. Oh memnory, toso!pe th?ou asrt A blessing, but , curse to me;,. Thy witchery brings back agn-hi, .alse hopes of what can never. be " But all things have an nd,"' andthough I mnay not drink of tlhat dull wave ... Which brings forgetftlness, Istill.. Have one hope left mee-'tis the grave. Gotlburn, ELLA. Septeinhbor, 24, 1S48.
