THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1848. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 February 1848

THE EATHUHST APYQOATE, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1348. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. It has often struck U9 as not only singular but as also showing unpardonable apathy on the part of the better informed classes of this community, that in a District like Bathurst, depending solely upon pastoral and agricultural pursuits, no attempt what ever has yet been made to form an Agri cultural Association. It. is a subject which comes home to almost every individual in l he District, all being more or less interested in one or other or both of the above' pursuits. ' It certainly would be a great desideratum if some well known and public spirited in dividual, or individuals would stir in the matter, and we are perfectly satisfied it only requires a slight movement to be made to set it going and its success would follow as a natural consequence. About four years ago we had an oppor tunity of becoming well acquainted with the first working of the Hawkesbury Agri cultural Association, which is now a flou ri...

O ! know ye the city, that sits by.thb shore, v ', In the land of the south, in her leafy retreat-— - Dark forests behind arid bright waters before,' Where high-headlands look forth as they longed for to meet. !From her rock-hewn walls to the dark soaring .' Heads,' ' Her ocean-gate pillars collossal and.strong, How bright the broad path-way meandering that 1 leads Through scenes yet unrivall'd in nature or song ! The bays in their beauty all wjndingly sweep, By their green leafy banks and grey rocks to the main, And flash o'er the mansions along the dark steep The sunbeams that dance on their silvery plain. And deep in the dark woods, away and away From the great world of waters, scarce heard from afar, Where the wild flowers are fairest, the tides branching' stray, And glance by the glades like some bright shooting'star. The Isles of the Sea with fair India contend, In weaving fresh chaplets to crown her with flowers ; And o...

BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. SUEING A FEMALE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 February 1848

BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. (From THE OBSERVER, August 15. ) SUEING A FEMALE. ETHELL v. MEREDITH. — This was an action brought to recover compensation in da- mages for a breach of promise of marriage. Mr. Whitehurst, in stating the case to the jury, said the plaintiff, Mr. Stephen Ethell, was an upholsterer and dealer in furniture, carrying on business in Ann- street, Birmingham, and the defendant a lady residing with her brother in the village of Yardley, near that town. The action was brought to recover damages for break- ing a promise of marriage without any rea- son being assigned for the non-fulfilment of her engagement. The parties were not acquainted with each other until the July of last year, when an intimacy was formed at the house of Mr. Thomas Ethell, a ne phew of the plaintiff. Mr. Stephen Ethell was a widower, of the age of 45, having a daughter about 21, and the defendant, Miss Meredith, was about 30. From this it would be seen that there was no no great or imprope...

MINING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 February 1848

MINING, IN AUSTRALIA. Everybody you meet now-a-day talks of some recent discovery of copper lodes, each having made a more valuable one than any before known. We hail such discoveries as of unquestionable importance, as tending to develope the internal wealth of the colony ; but we warn the public against being, in the present state of the colony, too san guine at the result of mining adventures, as all investments in mining operations are properly called. It is very clear that we are all noyices in the art of mining, both masters and men, and when one finds a fine surface specimen of copper ore in a spot which had for years been passed over unnoticed,, and on searching, discovers a lode impregnated with copper ; he is too apt to believe, that with such indications on the surface, he must, at no great depth, find, a, second ' Burra Burra,' and . may be led on to sacrifice a fortune in pursuit of the shadow of wealth. He has not learned that cheap labor and economy in working of. min...

Police Office. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 February 1848

Police Office. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9. THE PIG RACKET.— Information having beens laid by the chief constable against sundry individuals in the town, some for allowing their 'squeakers' to go prowling about the streets of the town, and othsrs for keeping ' grunters ' : in styes, within a shorter distance from the streets than allowed by the Police Act, several parties appeared on sum- mons this day to answer these various charges. The first case called on was Thomas Grover, who was charged with allowing his pigs to go at large on the streets and public places ; in this case the information was withdrawn, as it appeared that although the pigs were illegally at large, they were not found in the streets or public ways, but on an uninclosed allotment of an individual who did not complain of the nuisance. — Mr. H. Blunden was then sentenced to pay a fine of 5s. and 7s. for allowing young 'porkers' to go at large without a tender. — Joseph Lee and John Duffin were next sentenced to pay a fi...

THE NEW CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 26 February 1848

THE NEW CONSTITUTION. ?Oks the -subject of the New Constitution is a matter of the highest importance to every one individually and collectively, we readily give insertion to the corrected speech of Mr. Heathorn at our meeting on the 11th instant. Our columns are always open to fair discussion on any subject involving the interests of the community. The view which that gentleman takes of this affair is certainly peculiar to himself ; we much doubt whether there is not as much -Bunkum in his anticipations than he has been pleased to ascribe to others differing with him in opinion. We know not to what class of politicians Mr. Heathorn professes to belong, but it is evident from his earnestness in the present matter, he is 'a thorough stickler for self government, with the power of tax ing for local improvements. We have omitted a portion of this gen tleman's speech containing a sarcastic re mark on the preceding speaker, for which, we are sure, he will thank us, but we readily give in...

TO THE SABBATH EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 26 February 1848

TO THE SABBATH EVE. Farewell to thee, sweet Sabbath Day ! How soon thy moments pass away : ?Sweet as the balmy night's repose — Brief as the solace sleep bestows. Thy happy hours, on angel's wings, Are borne, whilst each a blessing brings : So softly by thy pleasures glide, Thy Sabbath's flown ere half enjoyed. Not for the man who krfows no toil, Who basks in fortune's sunny smile, Upon his velvet couch reclined, — Are thy sweet pleasufes most designed : But for the man who labours hard Thy Sabbath is a rich reward ; To him who knows the world's alarms Thy tranquil hours have peerless charms. To yon loneihill I'll haste away, To view thy last, thy lingering ray ; There thy last blessing to receive, And say — Farewell ! sweet Sabbath Eve ! Carcoar, 1848. ? C. S.

Original Poetry. THE SICK BUSHMAN'S LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 26 February 1848

'. aktisiitnl K&ativyi THE SICK BUSHMAN'S LAMENT. Beside my couch no mother sits, Nor sister with the golden hair, Toease iny pain, or sooth my brow— , Or in my woe to bear a share. Nor is she here, my own dear girl, To whom my plighted faith was given, In that dear Isle beyond the main, Still dear to me and dear to heaven ! 'Oh for one glance of those dear friends, Who loved me in my early days — Before the world had seared my heart, Or passion led his guilty ways. These aspirations, ah ! how vain, ?Fled are my hopes and seal'd my -doom-, And not a cheering hope is left To mitigate my soul's dark gloom ! True, when delirium wild asserts . Dominion o'er my prostrate soul, 'I riot in those youthful joys That erst brimm'd o'er in pleasure's bowl. -Then do I meet with early friends, And with their shadows hold converse, Until opposing sense returns, And with her wand the shades disperse. ?When stretched upon the couch of pain, I feel a listlessness of state, ' That gnaws the so...

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, February 25, 1848. SIR, — Your last number states, that the Com missioners fiave come to t?ie resolution of apply ing to the Government for a ' Grant of Land, in the Square, near the Church, for the intended Market,' in lieu of the space formerly allotted for that purpose ; whether the one or the other be most eligible I have no interest in — ltd it must not he forgotten that one of the Commissioners came with an amendment, ready cut and dried, to oppose a Market at any price, and modestly charged the then promoters of entertaining selfish views, for the purpose of shoving some friends and relations into lucrative situations and so forth, and unsparingly used the bugbear Tax, in place of Dues. This gentleman of the Sock and Buskin surely expects to live for ever, as lie feared that if the Market was taken out of his locality his interests miglit suffer by it. Oh, how are we in this generation fallen, we can see no further than our ow...

CBtrtstnal Ctfrrc^pmttfntce. To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, February 22, 1848. Sir, — A meeting was held of our market commis sioners yesterday, when wo understood that a reso lution was unanimously carried, to the effect, that an application should be made to the Governor to grant to the commissioners a space of land on the block or square on which All Saints' Church is built, for a fruit, poultry and vegetable market, and also, ;to grant to them the space set apart on the chart t section 3* for a general market, for the pur pose of a hay and corn market ; thus it would ap pear our commissioners are not overburlheued with bashfulness. The space set apart originally for a market is quite sufficient for all purposes, at all events for thirty years ; if, however, some are still sticklers for separate markets, knock down the present watch-house, which will have to be done when the new court-house is finished, and convert the land on which this watch-house stands, and...

WESLEYAN ANNUAL MISSIONARY MEETING. On Sunday, the 20th instant, two sermons were preached by the Rev. N. Turner, in the Weleyan chapel, Bathurst ; there was a numerous attendance, and the contribu tions, usual on such occasions, liberal. On Monday, the annual meeting was held in the same chapel, Major-General Stewart taking the chair — as he had done for many years before ; he was loudly cheered on his en trance. The worthy General has invariably been a staunch advocate and liberal supporter of this society. The weather was highly favorable and propitious on this occasion, and there was a numerous and respectable attendance. The business of the meeting was opened by an address from the chair man, in which he expressed the great plea sure he felt at being permitted once more to meet his brethren in so laudable and praise worthy a cause ; and expressed his delight at the numerous and respectable attendance : the venerable chairman was here loudly cheered.

Police Office. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 26 February 1848

Police Office. Saturday, February 19. A LUNATIC. — A native youth, about 19 years of age, named Quinn, an orphan, was produced before the Magistrates for the purpose of having the neces-   sary affidavits sworn to for his admission into the Asylum at Tarban Creek. It appeared, from his infancy he had been of unsound mind and weak intellect, and had of late become mischievous, in- deed dangerous, particularly amongst children ; for a long time a person named Carroll had supported him out of charity, but finding of late that it had become necessary to place him under restraint, had adopted the present course. Drs. Machattie and Connell made affidavits to the effect that the youth was a dangerous lunatic. Mary Dillon, an incorrigible drunkard, was sen- tenced to be confined six weeks in Bathurst gaol, with hard labour ; she had been only a few days released from the same domicile, where she had done penance for three months for a similar offence.
