Miscellaneous Extracts. THE EXHIBITION OF 1851. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 August 1851

Jttfecellaneous ^Extracts. :-/ - r;tH^- EXHIBITiaN' OF 1851. CJFrom Reynolds' Weekly Newspaper. J We were the first, andt we believe, the only journal which had the boldness to pro claim that the 'Crystal Palace' would turn oat bat a crazily erected edifice. In several * letters and articles appearing in Reynold's Newspaper we plainly told the public that the work, particularly the glazing depart* roent, would be ' scamped/1 and distinctly foretold what is now acknowledged by the Times to be the case — viz., that the first heavy shower of rain would penetrate like a cataract, through the badly joined squares of glass composing the roof of the monster ?building. Other journals have been busily employed for the last six months trumpeting forth the praises of Messrs. Fox and Hen derson, their liberality to their workpeople, and the strength and excellent construction of the Crystal Palace. The tune is, how ever* now changed, and the heavy showers of a few days have totally dispelled th...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the " Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 August 1851

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the ' Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal.' Sir— In consequence of the wonderful accounts which I have of late both heard and read respecting the success of the Turon gold diggers, I was induced to pay that locality a visit on Saturday last for the purpose of seeing and judging for myself as to how far those accounts are borne out by facts. I stayed two days and nights on the   Oakey Creek and Turon river during which   time I made it a point to find out as many   as I could whom I knew at Ophir, and on   whose statement I thought I could rely, and   I must confess that notwithstanding all that   may be said by certain interested parties,   I have yet to learn "that every man who     has a mind to work, is either making a   rapid fortune or earning good wages."   Indeed I have no hesitation in asse...

BATHURST CIRCUIT COURT. STABBING WITH INTENT, [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 August 1851

. BATHURST CIRCUIT COURT. '.STABBING WITH INTENT, - &O\.' . ; ? James Kennedy was indicted for stabbing J[ohn Horsey on the 17th March, and pleaded not guilty. He was defended by Mr. Holroyd. It appeared from the evidence of John Horaey, Bridget Neal, Dr. Gray, Mary Cody, and James Cody, that the prosecu tor Horsey went to Kennedy's place on the day in question, and rudely demanded a balance of 9s. which he said was due to him for work done, when an altercation ensued and Kennedy ordered him out of his house. When Horaey got outside he chal lenged Kennedy to fight, and although repeatedly ordered away he still remained, making use of abusive and provoking lan guage. 'At length he seized a bucket yoke, with which he ran after the prisoner and made a blow at him, but struck the door just as he was entering the house, leaving an impression in the timber. It was then that in self-defence the prisoner seized a stick with a , bayonet attached and made several thrusts at him woundi...

Hotal.IntElHgence. ; BATHDRST CIRCUIT COURT. STEALING FROM A. .DWELLING-HOUSE. ?William Jones was indicted for stealing a ring, 'the property of Mr. C. P. Bunsford, watchmaker and jeweller, of Bathurst, on the 15th July. The ' prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was undefended. The evidence in this case went to show that about 9 o'clock of the evening of the above date, the prisoner called at Mr. Dunsford's shop, and asked for a flutina. At the time of his entering the place a box was standing on the counter con taining a quantity of jewellery, which Mr. Buns ford had just taken out of the window, with _ the ?object, according to custom, of depositing it in a 'place of safety for the night. As the prisoner had the reputation of being a little disordered in his intellects, Mr. Dunsford procured vhe assistance '?* *- ? 'of'two-'policpmen to remove him from the premises. A few days afterwards the Chief Constable called upon Mr. Dunsford with the ring in question, which he immediately iden...

Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 August 1851

Colonial News. Gallant Capture of a Murderer.—A     letter dated Balranald, furnishes us with the following particulars of the capture by Mr. Graham, landlord of the Balranald Inn, of an aboriginal native named 'Billy the Bull,'   who had recently been committed by the Goulburn bench to stand his trial for mur- der, but had escaped from the custody of tbe police when en route from Balranald to Goulburn. It appears that Mr. Graham was in the vicinity of Mr. M'Cullin's, at the Lower Murray, on or about the 25th ult., and while stopping at this gentleman's station obtained information that 'Billy the   Bull' was encamped with a tribe of blacks in the immediate neighbourhood, and being resolved, if possible, to rid the country of such a bloodthirsty villain, visited a number of aboriginal camps in the vicinity of the station, and after a little trouble was re warded in finding the ruffian.

The Diggings. THE WORLD'S END DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 23 August 1851

The Diggings. THE WORLD'S END DIGGINGS. The information from the World's End   is rather scanty as yet. The following par- ticulars have been gathered from respecta- ble sources.   The ground said to be so productive is a   black alluvial soil, upon the Meroo Creek,   about a quarter of a mile from the spot where the Hundred Weight of Gold was discovered and is entirely free from rocks or stones of every description. A chain of water holes known by the aboriginal desig- nation Gondourra, supplies the miners with       water for washing purposes, to which many     of them have to convey the auriferous soil 200 to 300 yards. On Saturday last about 200 people had taken up their quarters there, and were many of them doing ex-     tremely well. The number has since in- creased to about 500, and arrivals by scores     &...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 30 August 1851

WESTERN AUSTRALIA.' Our intelligence from this settlement to the end of May, reports the natives- as making great ? havock among the settlers' cattle. Two aboriginal' natives had, been hansred for the murder cf aboriginals. , The imports of the settlement in 18.50 were valued at £62,361, and the exports at £22,135. The Perth Examiner gives the following observations on the state of the labour market: 'The- want of labour.,this year will prove most -disheartening to the colonists; many of the farmers through their inability to procure hands to attend to the lambing of ,their flrfeks and ploughing their lands, wi 1' be .obliged to negleotjhe latter altogether. We have, been informed of several instances of this kind, and the colony is thus deprived ' even of the ? chance of being able to procure a' sufficiency of bread staffs for its own consumption. How-' ever anxious the settlers may be to procure, so desiruble an object. ? There appears to be every probability' that the convict e&a...

GOLD ODDS AND ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 30 August 1851

GOLD ODDS AND ENDS. A piece of goid ore about 3 lbs weight was picked up, at the Wentworth diggings in the early part of the week;. We have it upon good authority that from 4 to 5 cwt. of gold leaves Bathurst for Sydney weekly by the escort and other known means of conveyance. Many people are about leav ing the Turon for Bathurst in consequence of the fresh in the river. It is expected that a month will elapse before operations can be advantageously commenced. Flour has been sold as high as 9d. and beef 6d. per lb. at the Turon. Two men passed through the town yesterday on their way to South Australia whence they had come to our diggings. They were heartily sick of them and after spending about a month there and all their cash, had sold their tools &c. and left. Mr. Joseph Simmon's Senr. who has just returned from the Turon, purchased the right of a digging allotment from a party of young men for £24, for which they asked £150 a few days before, and would not take less.

The 'first in the field, Mr. Gilbert 'Wright, was formerly and for many years a solicitor of this town. His first appearance in Bath* uret was in the capacity, of Clerk of Petty ' Sessions, a situation he retained 'for a con siderable period, but he finally resigned it to devote his whole attention to the prac tice 'of his profession. For a time he was very successful, and almost monopolized the legal business of the district. His life was a somewhat chequered one'.
