Original Poetry. THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

Original Poetry. TEE .NEW YEAR. .-? Like wavea before the winter's blast, The '??roll mg' years glide hurrying past ; And sweep before them in their sway ' The giddy' children' of a day, ' Who live as though life were to be Sublunary eternity. '' ';'' Another year its course has run, Another year its course begun ; Arid man and maid alike rejoice, And music swells its silv'ry voice, And sparkling wine cups lull to rest . The throbbings of the anxious breast. What madness ! by a silver thread, Death's dart hangs quivering o'er our head ; Spring past, then summer swiftly gone, . Our winter months will soon steal on. With wither'd hopes and pale disease, When pleasure's self will fail to please. , Look back upon the year that's fled, .„, , .How many number with the dead ! How many a healthful seeming brow, Ah ! where that healthful seeming now P Go, ask the worrri, and she may tell Of those you lately lov'd so well. Nor noble rank, nor cheek of bloom, Will save their owners from the to...

WELLINGTON. Newrca, January 1, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

WELLINGTON. (FROM OtJH. OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Newrea, January 1, 1850. About ten days ago, an affray took place on the Macquane Eivcr, a few miles below Wellington,, between a party of blacks from Mudgee, or the Castlcreagh Eiver, and some of those belonging to this district. Tho Mudgee blacks had fire-arms with which they attacked tho Wellington tribe, killing two men, and carrying off some of their gins. The constables were sent out after the ag gressors, but were not successful in finding them Had there been a small party of mounted police stationed at Wellington, they would have speedily overtaken the savages, and at least disarmed them. We may expect soon to hear of their using fire- ' arms against the whites, and as they show consider able ggtpertness.in their use, we may presume they have been practising on some of the distant cattle runs. It is the duty of the Government to protect the inhabitants of the border districts, both in person and property, from the : aggressions of ...

O'CONNELL PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

O'CONNELL PLAINS. . Fish River Creek.— Mr. Charles Whalan, of this place, has discontinued the working of his copper mine, the trial not having answered that gentleman's expectations.       The Cotton Plant.— A trial has been made by a gentleman of this neighbourhood, as to whether or no the cotton plant can be cultivated on this sido^ the mountains. It can scarcely be said to have suc ceeded, though several plants were raised, and for a time promised fair. The frost of the 7th of last month destroyed a few of them, and the rest are not looking very healthy. It would be advisable to have the trial made by others, in order that from variety of soils, &c.,,such observations might be mado as to throw some light on the subject.

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

Turkey. Accounts from Constantinople of the 5th confirm the intelligence which we gave some days, ago, of .the refusal of the Turkish! Government to adopt hostile measures against Hungary in consequence .of the entry of Bern into the Turkish territory. In re-: plying to the demand of the Russian and Austrian Envoys., the Ministers, of .the Porte referred to the convention lately made, by which it. was agreed that all troops entering the Turkish territory from Transylvania should be disarmed. When a 'body of Hun garian troops were summoned by the Cus tom-house officers on the frontier to give up their arms they at once complied ; when the same demand was made to the Russian troops, on their entering the Turkish ter ritory, they refused. The Russians alone violated .the -convention to the terms of which they, had agreedj and where the Turkish authorities have shown any remiss ness it was, solely in favour of those who de manded that hostile measures Bhould be adopted by the Sultan's G...

iFORNIA. Times, Auaust 23. ) ? - ' ? ifess that our most care-, e not, as yet, sufficed to lequatery respecting 'the actual condition of that mysterious region to which the adventurous swarms -of'»tivo worlds -have now, for nearly a twelvemonth been drafted. Our advertising columns still announce the imminent departures of scores of vessels for San Francisco, and the tide sets in the same direction, we believe, from half the harbours on the face of the globe. Yet when we endeavour to ascertain, realize, or specify the nationality, govern ment, constitution, products, climate, popu lation, or prospects of the attractive pro vince, we still find ourselves as wholly to seek, as before the first discovery of its mines. The reader shall see, however, what we have collected by dint of washing, sifting, and storing, since our lastjnotice on the subject. A great man once said that it was no wonder if Oxford and Cambridge were such learned places, considering how much, knowledge was yearly c...

KING'S PLAINS [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

KING'S PLAINS.   The neighbourhood of King's. Plains was, on the evening of Christmas day, visited by a very keen frost, which cut off all the potatoes, pumpkins, and melons. A large quantity of late wheat, has also been destroyed, and the settlers have, in conse- quence, commenced mowing it for hay. A con- siderable quantity which is not altogether spoiled, is seriously damaged, so that it will hardly pay the   owners for reaping.

ABOLITION OF GRAND JURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

ABOLITION OF GRAND JURIES. fFrom t?ie Weekly Dispatch. J Mr. Editor, — In my former letter on the above subject I stated that some important evidence had been given by Mr. D. W. Wire, the Solicitor. I now proceed to lay before your readers some extracts from the testimonv given bv that gentleman, who. as they are probably aware, has frequently filled the office of Under-Sherriff of London, and, in that capacity, had ample opportunity of forming an opinion of the working of the present system. He states ' that casee con tinually arise where parties go before the Grand Jury without really having any sub stantial charge to prefer, and support by perjury indictments agaiost respectable par ties, for the purpose of extorting money from them. He had seen abundance of letters that had been forwarded to parties, informing them that a Bill had been found against tnem by the Middlesex Grand Jury. It came out a short time ago that a number of respectable parties were indicted for keep ing brot...

Local Intelligence. THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

Xiocal gntelligence. THE EACES. The Eaces advertised in last Saturday's issue etime off on the afternoon of New Year's Day, at Killarney Course. About twelve o'clock, knots of pedestrians were seen proceeding hi the direction of the course. Occasionally horsemen, singly, or in force, would be seen dashing along the streets, laughing and halooinev as if lust let loose from Bedlam, and appearing as if they had resolved to make the most of the opportunity in the way of fun. Decked out in their holiday costume, and intent upon enjoying a gala day ; from three to fonr hun dred people of all sorts, sizes, and complexions had assembled together, and considering the intense heat of the afternoon, there appeared to be a con siderable amount of marching and countermarch ing by the footmen, and a rather inordinate extent of furious riding by horsemen, evidently from no other cause than a ' clear for action,' and an ex cess of animal spirits. Lollipop dealers, cake venders, and retailers of gin...

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1850. POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 January 1850

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS.   SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1850. POST OFFICE. We readily gave insertion to Mr. Thomp- son's letter, although it is intended to ope- rate as an extinguisher of our humble selves. We have been threatened with the pains and penalties of the libel law ; our messenger has frequently been snubbed, and has more than once returned from the Post Office brimful of hard and unpleasant names, such as "low scrawl," puppy, &c. ; and was   on one occasion, made the bearer of a sig- nificant hint, that, like our unfortunate pre- decessor, we should, through his means, be provided with apartments in Mr. Chippen- dale's repository for evil doers. The feeling of Christian charity and brotherly love, two most essential ingredients in the religion he professes, appear, like Astroea, to have taken leave of everything earthly (in our worthy Postmaster's composition,) and sought the celestial abodes. The meekness and humi- lity which would seem to be a...
