THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1850. "MAGMA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." DRUNKARDS' FINES AND POLICE REWARD FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 12 January 1850

THE EATHUEST VME£ PRESS: SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 1850. ; ' MAGNA EST VEKITAS ,ET PKJEVALEBIT.' DRUNKARDS' FINES AND POLICE   REWARD FUND.         The new regulations with regard to the dis« posal of Drunkards'. Fines ara now in active operation. Their purpose and intent as. .is generally, known, is. to make; policemen ho nest, and to prevent the disgraceful custom, (for custom it undoubtedly has been) of get ting up trumpery cases for lucre's sake. So far we perfectly, coincide with the' principle; of the measure, but ' whilst doing so we cannot lose sight of the fact, that police es tablishments are a social and political neces sity, and that however little their services may be relished by habitual offenders' and violators of the law, the honest and respect able portion of a community, are put, under a well regulated police, subject to the least apprehension either as to person or property. The character of, a police f...

Sydney and Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

Sydney aud Country Hews. Irish Orphans. — The rapidity with ?which the female immigrants, called Irish Orphans, (a designation which applies, we helieve, to a very small portion of them) are being poured into the colony, is exciting much attention and dissatisfaction, and will have to be the subject of a serious reraon-, strance from the colonists. The first ship arrived in October, 1838; and since then, a period of fifteen months, seven ships have arrived, having on board 1227, while three ships have arrived at Port Phillip, with 697. We believe, also, that the Thomas Arbuthnot, with 200 ;aord. may be daily expected in Sydney. We \. ??-. ;.pm;e drawing the atten tion of the public to this subject, at some length, on an early day. We believe that there are upwards of four hundred of these women in the barracks, maintained at the public expense, two hundred and sixty of them having been there since the arrival of 'the last ships, now two months since. — Herald, The Australian Agricul...

Select Poetry. THE MOSQUITO'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

Select Poetry. THE MOSQUITO'S SOtfG. 1 [fkom a newspaper.] 1st tho dreamy hour of ulght I'll hie, When the :1mm is hush'd of tho weary fly, When the lamps aro lit, and tho ourtalna. drawn, And sport on my wings, till the morning dawn, In tho fostivo hall where all is joy, In the chamber hu3h'd whero sleepers lie ; In tho garden bower whoro .the 'primrose smiles, ? Aud tho chirping cricket tho honr beguilos : In these I'll sport through tho summer night, And mortals to vox, I'll bite, I'll bite. There's ono I viow with an ovil oye ; A flame' of pride in his breast I spy ; Ho breathes in a lute with a master's skill, And listening souls tho rich strains fill With tho rapturous thrill of molody ; But ho carries his head so haughtily, I'll play him a trick — in his happiest swell, When the lingoring trill, with a magic spall, Holds all entrancod, I'll wing my flight, And pop on his nose, and I'll bite, I'll bite. There's a poot, I know— in the still midnight He plies his pen by tho tapo...

Original [?]pandence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

(©rujin si * crrr^jjcrKlf eitce, To the Editor of the Bathurst .I\ree Press. Messrs.. G-ueen 'Uns, Gentlemen,— As your question has not yet toon answered I will take tho liberty, per favour of the Bathurst Free Press, of enlight ening your greenness. 1A\-l.q any other article, copper ore is sold in Sydney according to its quality, or ?tho per centage of cojiper it contains, and as else where by the proportion of the supply to the de mand. The value of copper in the bar is regulated by the Indian, rather than tho English market. But tho real value of ore depends upon the state of tho English market, as the,: ifieans and appliances of smelting are to be obtained in abundance in Eng land, whereas, in India, as in this colony, they are scarce. As you truly state ' the Sydney smelters have no opposition' from tho very simple fact that thero is only one smelting establishment, the property of Messrs. James & Co., who it is not to be supposed would run up the price against themselv...

THl? ?-?RA.T.HMST TREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1S50. ' MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PRiEVALEniT.' BATHURST HOSPITAL. This meeting of the Subscribers to the Ba thurst Hospital and the public, advertised to take place atMrs.Black's,on Wednesday last, was postponed in consequence of the paucity of individuals assembled. In the present case it was rather a fortunate circumstance, as the accounts were not in the state the Treasurer wished, who was desirous of ob taining a few days' grace, for the purpose of collecting subscriptions, so as to place his balance sheet in a more favourable po sition. The apathy of the community (which we have lately adverted to in rather strong terms) upon all public questions, was discernible in this particular case, as there did not assemble more than some half dozen persons. Amongst the difficulties to be encountered in carrying out the objects of the institution, or that very important por tion of its details — raising the funds — it was, in the course of p...

EARLY HISTORY OF LOLA MONTES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

EARLY HISTOB.Y OF LOLA MONTES. There is reason to believe that she was born in India, . but of Irish parents, her father being a Captain Gilbert, in the Com pany's service. After the death of that gentleman, his -widow married, in India, Major Cragie, Deputy Adjutant-General, and Miss Gilbert was sent to Scotland to be educated under the eye of some of her father's relatives in Montrose. Here she showed an uncontrollable love of fun and mischief, and one of her girlish exploits, in sticking flowers into the wig of an old gen tleman who sat before her in church, is still freshly remembered. From Montrose she was sent to a boarding-school in England. Meanwhile her mother returned from India, having for her fellow passenger a young countryman/Lieutenant James, with whom she proposed to visit Ireland. Miss Gilbert was summoned to Liverpool to meet her mother, whom it was intended she should accompany on the Irish tour, but when the party was on the eve of departure, one morning Lieutena...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

miscellaneous Extracts. Ireland. — Mr. Duffy has been making a tour in the provinces, and he seizes the oc casion to draw a most harrowing1 picture of the joint effects of famine and extermination upon the peasantry of the south and west. Here is a sample of his pencilling : — ?' No woras printed in a newspaper, or eisewnere, will give any man, who has not seen it conception of the fallen condition of the west and the south. The famine and the landlords have actually created a new race in Ireland. I have seen on the streets of Galway crowds of creatures more debased than the Yahoos of Swift — creatures having only a distant and hideous resemblance to hunan beings. Gray-headed old men, whose idiot faces had hardened into a settled leer of mendicancy, simeous and semihu man ; and women filthier and more frightful than the harpies, who, at. the jingle of a coin on the pavement, swarmed in myriads from unseen place3, struggling, screaming, shriek ing for their prey, like some monstrous ...

CHARGE OF BIGAMY AGAINST LOLA MONTES.. On Monday the day fixcd.for the appearance of the Countess de Landsfeldt to, meet (as Mrs. Heald) the charge of bigamy, the recognizances were, with the consent of Mr. Clarkson, who appeared for the prosecution, extended to Wednesday, to give time to the defendant, who had but returned from the Continent a few days previously,, to prepare her. case against the charge. On Wednesday, a considerable number of persons assembled before the court, notwithstanding the wetness of the weather, in expectation of seeing- the lady as she came from her carriage to enter the court. They, however, as well as the less numerous throng within the court, were doomed to disappoint ment, for Lola Montes did not make her appearance. At 2 o'clock, Mr. Clarkson, who appeared for the prosecution, entered the court. There were also rgenticmaTfro»^ witnesses, who had been summoned to prove the first marriage.

THE LIVERPOOL MURDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

THE LIVERPOOL MURDERS. .At Liverpool Assizes, on Wednesday John Grleeson Wilson, the man charged with the murder of Mrs. Hinrichson, her two children, and a female servant, was put on his trial for the murder of the servant, Mary Parr. The particulars of this have been already mentioned. Tlie evidence showed that, in March last, Wilson engaged lodgings at Mrs. Hinrichson's, the wife of a master-mariner then ona voyage ; the hire ing of the lodgings was a pretence, as the man had lodgings elsewhere- Next day, while Mrs. Henrichson was out, the servant was assailed. Some potatoes were received at the street door by Wilson, who seemed confused. On the return of Mrs. Hinrich son, the assassin assailed her and her chil dren, and thea the house was robbed of a number of valuables. The murders were discovered by a youth, who had brought home some earthenware ; he could get no [ answer, and on looking through the key hole, he saw the body of Mrs. Hinrichson lying in the passage. An alarm wa...

MR. COBDEN AND THE AUSTRIAN LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

MR. OOBDENANDTHE AUSTRIAN LOAN, A proposition for a loan on the part of the Austrian Government, has led to the publi cation of the following1 letter : — ' Oaldanus, near Sedlescombe, . Surry, Sep. 25, 1849. 'Mv Dear Sir, — I have this moment read in a London paper the prospectus of a new loan, issued by the Austrian Govern ment. Now is the time for the friends of peace and disarmament to raise their voices in condemnation and exposure of the system by which Austria and the other powers maintain their enormous armies, and carry war and destruction not only into their own provinces, but into the territories of their neighbours. A public meeting should be immediately called in London, to deuounce this attempt, to levy upon the savings of peaceful industry the means of paying day - nau and his Croats for their butcheries in Brescia, and their atrocities in Hungary. Chere is not a friend or admirer of the op jressed arjd slandered Magyars or Italians nrho will not press forward to swell...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

IRELAND. Dublin, Tujesdat MpENiNG.— ^Dismissal of the : Earl of Rodbn. — The dreary lull of Irish politics has been at length inter rupted by an event ?v^hich. can scarcely fail to. rouse the dormant energies of party, and to evoke a, storm of indignation at one Bide, and a shout of triumph at the other, the only lasting effect of which will be the permanent revival of the bitter sectarian feuds which a long course of discouragement by the last and the present Ministry, had done much to soften down, if not well nigh to obliterate. There could, however, be no second course adopted, a fact which was plain to any un prejudiced person who carefully read the evidence taken before Mr. Berwick in the investigation into the circumstances con nected with the lamentable loss of life at Dolly's Brae, on the 12th of July last. Acting, it is presumed, on the report pre sented to the Government by their own Commissioners, the Lord Chancellor has removed the name of the Earl of Roden from the comm...

STATE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

STATE OF EUROPE. (From ilie Paris Correspondent of the Times, October 10.) The note addressed by the English Govern ment to its ambassador at St. Peteisburgh, on the subject of Constantinople, and copies of which have been communicated to the representatives of Great Britain in Vienna, Constantinople, and Paris, is a document worthy of the Ministers of a great and free country. It is, I am assured, couched in firm but moderate terms. It contains not a single harsh expression, or threat, calcula . ted to .wound the susceptibility of the Em peror Nicholas, while it .announces the de termination of the Government to support the Porte against all exigencies that would compromise the dignity of an independent sovereign. Lord Palmerston has, likewise, sent proper instructions to Sir Stratford Canning, and has placed the Mediterranean fleet at his disposal, and which has by this, , in all probability,. sailed forthe Dardanelles. I am not aware that any direct 'orders were addressed bjrr th...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

NOTICE TO CO-RESPONDENTS. Amongst the minor troubles and annoyances of an editorial life may be reckoned the perpetual persecution, to which hs is subjected by small beer poets, and love-sick youths praying for the insertion of their stupidly sentimental poetic effusions. At the time o' life when they begin, to be sensible of the charms of the opposite sex, -and Cupid asserts supreme sway over their hearts and intellects, they must in some way or other give expression to their Jiigh wrought and over excited feelings , and accordingly some be take themselves to writing very bad poetry, ex pressive- of nothing but their own stupidity and temporary mental derangement, We should have no objection to this or any other mode of allaying tJieir heart-burnings, if they would not pester us with their nonsense. Boys and girls willinthe common course of nature, fall inlove, ?but we should much prefer their whispering their tender tales to each other in prose, to sighing and dying and languishin...

RUPTURE BEWEEEN RUSSIA AND TURKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

RUPTURE BEWEEEN RUSSIA AND TURKEY. (From the Sun.) A general European war appears now to bs imminent — a war between Russia and Austria on the one side and on the other Turkey, backed by France and England. Reaction has revealed . ' a vaulting ambi tion,' which has certainly ' overleaped it self' in this instance — the Austrian Empe ror thirsting wkh a somewhat too diabolical eagerness for vengeance, and the Russian Emperor yearning rather too violently for the domination of Constantinople. Thanks be to the God of Justice,, the mask has fal len betimes. Absolutism, intoxicated with a success brought about by the treason of Arthur Georgey, has been so far carried away by a sudden delirium of joy that it has unwittingly exposed to view the most secret infamies of its character. Ever since the unconditional capitulation of the Alberaarle of Hungary, the Cabinets of Vienna and St. Petersburgh have given loose to their evil passions. Ever since that period Europe has been horrified by th...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 26 January 1850

CALIFORNIA. From the Adelaide Times. Much, excitement prevails -at present in Ade laide and several country dristriets on the subject of intended emigration to the gold regions. The intensity of this excitement is mainly owing1 to the statements of a plasterer named King, who went to California in the first ship, the Sophia Margaret and reached San Francisco after a long voyage of 117 days. His verbal statements considered worthy of credit, and which are also partially supported by facts and collateral testimony, are to the following effect : — 'When he first landed he engaged as a lumper- in discharging cargo, and earned £19 odd a week, which was paid to him in hard cash. Having sustained a hurt in one of his hands, he was obliged to make choice of labour, .and going to work at his proper calling as plasterer, earned £12 a week with board and lodging. Having saved £80 in six weeks, he determined to return to South Australia for his wife, and left San Francisco in a vessel bound to ...
