(The result of the Sydney Election is gene rally, known, and is by many, felt to be an ?unfortunate , one.

English Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 December 1849

Bnglisa Extracts. There is a total dearth of, home political news of the slightest interest ; and, in the absence of any such sources^ of excitement*, the'attention.ofthe'public!has rivetted itself: on the circumstances attending the horrible murder in Bermondsey, of which we gave a notice last week. The particulars of that crime, of the'flight of the supposed niur derersi and the subsequent capture; of one of' them, are by this time familiar wherever a newspaper is read. There .were circum stances connected with its perpetration — evidences of premeditation, and. -a peculiar atrocity in the manner of its commission — which have obtained for it-a notoriety' scarcely exceeded in the records of criminal; law. But the public mind seems to have' been still more interested by the manner- in'' which one of; the, supposed raurderers:was; captured. ?

Died [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 December 1849

Died       At his residence, Triangle, on Thursday, December 20, Mr James Hanrahan, son of Mr. Patrick Hanrahan. Deceased has been afflicted with scarlet fever, which together with an injury he had received in the side by being struck with the branch of a tree; was the cause of death. His interment took place on Sunday, December 23, at 7 o'clock in the morning, at the Catholic Burial Ground, Bathurst. He was obliged to be interred sooner than was, desirable to his disconsolate wife and family, in consequence of decomposition having taken place a circumstance distressing to the feelings of his relatives, who resided at consider- able distances from the abode of deceased, and were in consequence unable to attend. His oblig- ing disposition, kindness of heart, sobriety and in- dustry, had gained him many well-wishers. His death is therefore generally lamented. He has left a wife and five children to bewail his loss.

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

miscellaneous Extracts. American Trotting.- — On Friday, the 20th Oct. came off over the Union Course, Long Island, the most remarkable trotting performance on record. Mr. Bridges, of Brooklyn, laid 500 dollars against 1000, that his ch. g. Trustee could trot twenty miles withiii an hour in harness. Trustee was got by Imported Trustee, the sire of Fashion, Revenue, &e., out of the well; known trotting mare Fanny Pullen, and his performances on this occasion demonstrate the fact most forcibly that 'Blood will tell.' The same, too, may be said of Lady Suffolk, Ajax. Black Hawk, Mount Holly, and other cracks on the turf. Four days' notice having been given, the match was set down for Friday, at half-past two o'clock. The course was in good order, but there wss little or no sun, and the wind was frequently high. The ' attendance of spectators was unusually large. Time was the favourite at 100 to 40, and very large amounts were laid out at these odds. Trustee was brought to the p...

HORRIBLE TRAGEDY IN SWITZERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

HORRIBLE TRAGEDY IN SWITZER LAND. The Paris papers give the following details of a fearful tragedy recently enacted in the town of Berthoud; in Switzerland, in which a father murdered four of his children :-— Jacob Moser, of Gondisweil, in the district of Kulm (Argovia) was forty years of age. He had long1 inhabited the town of Berthoud where he was generally beloved and es teemed. He was a widower and the father of six children ; his conduct was regular, and he supported his family by exercising his talents as a musician at public balls, and as a teacher of the art. The eldest child was a girl eighteen years of age, who at six displayed so; much talent for music that she was already famous as a concert performer ; she had, latterly resided in French Switzer land, where she earned her livelihood by teaching. Besides supporting his family, Moser had to maintain his aged parents. All these burdens caused him to contract debts which he was unable to liquidate. These burdens; an unfortu...

British Extracts. WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

British Extracts. WOOL. Highly Important. — The Berlin corre spondent of the Daily News writes in that paper of the 26th June, as follows : — 'I have talked with several of the English wool purchasers here, and they are universally of opinion that in the course of a few years New South Wales wool will be brought in considerable quantities to the Berlin market. In fact, the wool which is sold here for seventy thalers the centner is not to be compared in point of quality to the New South Wales wool which is sold in London at 2s. the pound, that is, at the same, price. Wool may be brought to Berlin, as far as the expenses of the freight are concerned, for a penny the pound, one halfpenny to Hamburgh, and another from thence to Berlin. All expenses included, wool exported from London to Berlin would have to be sold 4d. a pound dearer at the latter market to realise the same profit. Now, it is contended by my in formant that the New South Wales wool sold in London at Is. 8d. the pound is...

EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF CHURCH PATRONAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

EXTRAORDINARY CA.SE OF CHURCH : PATRONAGE. Thu Rev. Joseph Brown, the well-known and benevolent incumbent of St. Matthias, Bethnal-green, has been appointed by the Bishop of Winchester to the important rec *nrv nf Christ Church, Blackfriars-road— a parish with a population of no less than 15,000 souls, and with very small spiritual oi religious provision. The circumstances under which this excellent appointment has been made are particularly curious. The patronage of Christ Church. Blackfriars, is vested in the twelve trustees of a gentle man named Marshall, most of whom are resident in the locality. In 1847 the living was held by a very old incumbent, who re signed. Two candidates presented them selves — one the curate of the parish of Stockwell, the other the curate of the parish of Clapham. The trustees were equally di vided upon the relative merits of these gen tlemen ; they were five and five, two refusing to vote. They kept the living open six months, each party in the hope th...

They were furnished with English passports vis4d by the English Consul at Civita Vecchia, as well as at Rome, or wilih American pass ports vistd by the English Consul at Civita Vecchia for Malta. Malay of these persons might have gone in the Lorabardy steamer to Genoa, which sailed before the Lycurgue, and was not full ; but., from the implicit faith in the security afforded by a British passport, they preferred going to Malta. Among these emigrants were pei'sons of all ages aud of both sexes. Many, especially on board the Robin, were sick and wo...

Foreign Sntellig-ence. Hungary. The Surrender op Georgey. — The fol lowing is a narrative of the events which preceded the surrender of Georgey :— ' Georgey was, on the 3hd instant, in the neighbourhood of the confluence of the Hernad with the Theiss. As we see from. Kosauth's letters, he had orders to join this array on the Theiss an d: Maros. Paske witch, however, having occupied Debreczin on the second, Georgey had no other'road left but that of Nyiregyhoza and Naga^ Karoly, and if- possible he would form la junction with Bern at the foot of the mou'n-; tains of Transylvania. In the meantime. Nagy Sandor, whose mission it was to keep Paskewitch in check so as to facilitate Georgey's passage southward, was attacked by the Russian army corps under Rudiger and that under Capriano, together with the detachments commanded by Generals Bebu tow and Gillienschmidt, and beaten in a bloody battle, the details of which have just appeared in a Russian bulletin.

Country News. (JFVow our own Correspondents. ) Since my last; communication the weather has been delightful ; dry days have been succeeded by a little windy weather, which still prevails with every appearance of a continuance, 'so that, upon rthe whole, a little rain is considered desirable. . Shearinsr onerations throughout this neighbourhood have been completed in good time, and the wool, generally the Messrs. Suttors', got up in first rate condition. The harvest is progressing favourably, under genial skies,' and should the weather continuo dry a week longer, this may be considered the most propitious season we have enjoyed for years. The demand for extra hands at this busy period has ab sorbed all the surplus labour here, and wages, which were coming down, have not undergone a change for the last fortnight. The whole of Winbumdale, Clear Creek, &c, seems to be in a state of improve ment. A vast quantity of clear land, which a few years ago was swamps and dense scrubs, is...
