FRENCH REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 June 1848
By the J«no,-from Adelaide, news has arrived, that in February last a Revolution occurred in France, which, has issued in the. Abdication and flight of the King- of the French, who has taken refuge in England — the revolutionizing spirit of the French people appears to have burst out sud denly and unexpectedly, and as in the year 1830, so in 1848 it lasted three days. On the 23rd, it broke out— on1 the 24th the King Abdicated in favor of his Grandson — and on the 25th the Pro visional Government was formed.' ; Only a few days before the Revolution the Prince de Joinville sailed for Brazil, with bis wife intend ing- to abidn there for sometime — and a frig-ate had bet'n sent after him forbidding his return to Frnncr. To what extent these events- will allect England it is impossible to say until further information )& received, but it appears from the. excited state, of Europe that war is almost sure to follow. Whether England will be engaged ' in it, is at present a mystery —...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 July 1848
IRELAND. Dublin, MARcri 6.-— The tenant-right agi tation in assuming a formidable character, and if noi counteracted by satisfactory legislation may lead to serious consequences, the only movement which could ' send the peasantry of Ireland to the mountains,' is tms tenant-right excitement, which agitateB with greater or less force every country in Ireland. At the Repeal Association, to-day, there was a loud burst of enthusiasm for the French Revolution. Mr. John O'Connell harangued at great length on the events of which he had been a partial eye- witness, and panegyrised the revolution i'n the high est style. His reception .. was very warm, notwithstanding the mistake committed in his latter letter, ' To the people of Ireland.' which brought him into temporary disfavour with the two ardent sympathisers. The main business done was the adoption of the ' Address *' issued on Monday last by the committee. The rent for the week rose to £100. ? The provinces still contribute their flow o...

Sir,— In your Journal of June the 10th, I ob serve your request to make a trial on a'small scale on the culture of flax ; I was brought up to agri culture in my early days, in a part of Ireland where almost every inhabitant had more or less flax, and' manufactured it themselves ; I agree with' your opinion, that flax could be brought to perfec tion in this district, particularly as there is plenty of good moist loam fit for the culture and growth of the above ; I also consider it would be of great advantage to the small settlers, as their women who are in the bush half idle would be employed in spinning this useful article. I am no land holder at present, but any person wishing to try the experiment I will give every direction, go my self and sow the seed, and when ripe, will give every assistance to preserve it for manufacture. However, if you let me know where I can get ...

On the 8th March a singular riot commen ced in the metropolis which originated in the holding of a meeting by Mr. Cochrane — several persons assembled in Trafalgar Square, and the interference of the police with what might have passed off harmlessly enough in the first instance, led to more serious results. On the second day, the riot assumed a more alarming appearance, and is thus described in the Dnily News : At an early hour yesterday morning a number of young men and boys assembled in, Trafalgar Square, apparently bent upon a renewal of the dis turbances of the previous day. For a long time however, they confined themselves to walking about and shouting, one of the mob carrying a stick with a black flag. As the morning advanced finding that no interference on the part of the police took place, the mob which had increased to four or five hundred persons, became more outrage ous, and the whole of the-shops.at Charing-cross and Cockspur-street were speedily...
