It is a free port, without duties on imports or exports, or any tonnage or anchorage dues for vessels of every description. The land will be put up for public competition as soon as possible, and in the mean time, per sons so desiring, will receive pemission from Governor Brooke to erect temporary buildings in specified localities.

To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald 1MR.UI.AN. Ssn,-In loolking over your thriving pablica tion of September 28, I perceive you have taken some, but it strikes me not sufficient, notice of this Bench in the case of Mr. B-, who it ap pears, you have yet to learn was first wantonly excited, by the uncalled for and impertinent in terference of the constabulary, to commit liimself, and then a ruffianly advantage was taken, and a fine inflictqd on a gentleman who, whatever may be his eccentricities, is well-known to possess those sterling qual!ities which at once rdnder him "the delight of all circles, and the idol of his OWIn." SThe ground of complaint agaiust him, it is to be regretted, is not known, as upon his applicae tion for a copy of the information, this.indispen sable forerunner to the issue of a summons, was declared to be " non est."

MINERALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 September 1848
MINERALS. As many persons who take an interest in mineis are unacquainted with the proper method of ob serving, collecting, and testiiig mineral speci mens, we purpose offering them a few hints on the subject; and as the county of Argyle and its neighbourhood is supposed to be rich in copper ore, we shall confine ourselves, at the present, to the exclusive consideration of the subject as connected with that metal. To the uninitiated there appears to be little difference in one specimen from another; and often those which appear to be of the least value prove ultimately to be of the greatest worth; therefore he who is bent on discovery should collect samples of every variation of rock--not precisely surface specimens, which are of least value, but a portion of that which is beneath. The specimens should be of no particnlir form, not rounded at th5' edges to please the eye, but a rough, straight fracture, and aboutl two inches long, and an inch antd a half wide. Such are the most valu...

MEMOIR OF LOUIS BLANC. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 September 1848
IMEIMOIR OF LOUIS BLANC. Louis Blanc is stated by a biographer to havo come of noble blood, the very best indeed of Corsica, his mother being own sister to Count Pozzo di Borgo, the celebrated diplomatist. He was remarkable at college for his great natural talents and perseverance it study; and, from its having become a thing understood in the family that he was to pursue the same career for which his uncle had obtained so much power and in fltuence, his attention had been early directed to the study of history and the art of government. Few men in Europe possess a greater book knowledge of foreign policy than Louis Blanc, and htad hIe chosen to follow the profession of diplomacy, Ihe would doubtless have risen to eminence and distitction. Hie had already ex perienced much suffering at college from the tmockery of his fellow-students, to whom thile childish appearance of Louis Blanc became of course a fruitful theme of epigram and insult. It is not in the inature of his countrymen t...

PUBLIC LIBRARY. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. Sin,--In reference to an article which ap peared in your last issue, I think the writer should have made honorable mention of an in dividual iu this town, who, ill a praiseworthy mnallnner, and at considerable expeunse, has en deavoured to supply the public with a fund of reading. WVithout tihe efforts of individuals the townspeople would often stuff'er from the want of necessary conveniences; and when the enterprise :of pa ties is evinced at considerable hazard to themnselves, it should meet with liberal encou* ragement. Mr. Joseph Collius, altlhough not possessing AL, the standard works in the language, has a very fair selection of books on various subjects, and to which, I have no doubt, will be added all the new publications, if he is supported iu his, tb this town, novel enterprize. : I am, Sir, Yours, &e,, A READER.

"PALMAM QUI MERUIT FERAT." [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 September 1848
' PAT.AM.I Ql .MERUIT P?.EiAT.' ,0 AN Eanr"bis task is no joke. As pub. lication day comes round the reader is looking for his quantumof news, and politicianis may: be seen to snatch, with ardour, thle broadsheet of'iifbrmation put of the hanlds of: tihe rtinner, eaier to see the last bolt that tile editorial Vulcan has forgedl, to strike terror and death at his political opponent. To all appearance every tlhing in a paper is written, con cocted, or extracted, in a moment: that the only operation is to seize a pen, and all is done. - Little does the world reflect what a continual draining there is upon the mind and ingenuity of the newspaper writer: how much unwearying attentiod he must bestow to the requirements of the public-with what watchfulness he must observe every movement of the many classes that form the governing mass, and repress with well-timed stric tures the tyranny of one portion, and the insubordination of the other. Many unthinking persons consider that an editor, o...
