HORRIBLE SCENE AT THE COURT OF PERSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 February 1850

HOTITIIB LE SC EN E AT THE C OURT OF PERSIA.: ''. ?- The young Shah has been passing the holy month of Ramazari, which: happens this | year to coincide with the dog days, in a spacious garden not far from Teheran. The envoy of a great Christian Sovereign having demandecl an audience 01 his Majesty, an hour was appointed for the cerembny. His Excellency, on arriving in 'due season at the royal encampment, was ushered into a. tent, where he reposed a moment, while his, arrival was announced to the Mohammedan successor of Darius and Xerxes. Scarcely, had he taken a. seat, when his ears were as sailed by the sound of repeated heavy blows, mingled with the most piteous cries of ter ror and agony. Scarcely had he time, to cpraprehend that a grand public execution was the' cause of these distressing sounds, when he was seized by the Shah's attend ants, and hurried forward to the Boyal presence. On his passage a greater and more revolting shock awaited him. Exe cutioners dragging the . yet ...

Extracts. Reform in the Colonies.— The follow ing trite remarks have been made by Mr. '.. 'oebuck in the House of Commons, when .?monstrating the necessity, of reform in ..ne administratioiuof she colonies: — '- The ibstract idea of a colonist, in the mind of a colonial official, is of a man ever on the vverge of rebellion, andalways manifesting his disloyalty by complaining of official ?expenditure. And colonies, by the same ?worthy 'class are looked upon as patronage groun.d. They are not established for any ?of the strange ends which. I have supposed. The notion of extending the blessings pf ' civilization to lands now waste — -of in creasing the numbers of a happy and intel ligent people — of rendering our distant and now useless territories a means of adding to our power, and secu-ing the well being of our, industrious population, — all these, and similarideas he treats as mere idle pretences, unmeaning words, and nothing more. But colonies are good things, because they are sup...

I had tried doctoring and medicines, of every kind but all to' no avail, indeed I daily got worse, and felt that I must shortly die. From seeing your remedies advertised in the paper I take in, I thought I would give them a trial. I did so.

EKEiscellaneoiis E2stract3. Moral Efficcts of Banking -;— Banking also exercises a powerful influence upon the morals of society. It tends to produce honesty and punctuality in pecuni -ry engage ments. Rankers for their own interest, always have n reerara* /or the moral character of the party with whom they deal ; they en quire whether he be honest or tricky, in-. du8trioii9 or idle, prudent or speculative, thrifty or prodigal, and they will 'more readily make advances to a man of moderate property and good morals, than to a man of large property, but of inferior reputation. Thus the .establishment of a. bank in any place immediately advances the pecuniary value of a good moral -character. 'There^are numerous instances of persons having arisen from obscurity to wealth only by means of their moral' character, and the confidence which that character produced in the mind of the banker.' It is- not merely by way of loan or discount that a banker serves such a person- He also speaks well...

' JfOOtKOf; ^ Next to scab- and catarrh, no disease which /can affect sheep, is so injurious to the well-; beiiig'and g6od condition of the animal it self, or more detrimental and expertsive to the settler. . Wherever the footrot takes root, there is never-ceasing toil— a great outlay of labour and expense, arid the closest possible, attention , to paring and dressing, necessary in healing the hoof, restoring it to even a V partial' state of soundness; and after all this labour and attention, and over hauling and dressing, the first two days' wet weather will frustrate all those endeavours, and cause the unfortunate overseer, or the unlucky proprietor to begin his labours afresh in cutting and hacking with his knife, and. cauterising with antimony. The work of the station is one continual round of paring and dressing; from one shearing to another, and still the sheep, (poor and lean as files, with poor curly miserable fleeces, which would cause as patient a shearer as ever took shea...

RAILWAY TO THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 February 1850

' RAILWAY TO THE PACIFIC. (From the Times. J The English public are aware that a pro ?? ject has been put forward by a Mr. Whitney, of New York, for a railway to the Pacific, the length of which woul.d be 2,030 miles ; but perhaps neither the practicability of the work, nor the extent to which it has found favour in America is sufficiently appreciated. Mr. Whitney proposes that the route should commence at Lake Michigan, to which point;there;is already steam communication from New York, and that it should thence proceed to California. For its construction he asks no capital, but simply that Congress should grant 30 miles of land on each side of the line at ten cents per acre, which land is at present for the most part worth nthing and could only be brought into value by the opening of the road. Possessed of this grant, the projector would require, sufficient to be sold to construct a section often miles, , and as the land at the commencement of the route would lie in settled distric...

Medical Profession. SIR,— The very pleasing arid truly gratifying in telligence has just reached us, that Dr. Bell, late Assistant Surgeon to the Windsor Hospital, and Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, London, has come to the determination of residing amongst us. . We have recently seen a prospectus of a work entitled ' The Settler's Guide, or Modern Domestic Medicine and Surgery, about to be published by Tlr Bell ; and we have every reason io believe, from the well-known character and ability of the author, that the said work will prove an invaluable acquisition to j.he public, most^particularly to fami lies, settlers, and others, residing in the remote parts of this extensive country. In one respect it is especially to be recommended. There is no empiricism or quackery about it ; it is entirely scientific, and yet perfectly intelligible to the plain est reader, and can be understood by the humblest capacity ; and as the author himself puts forth in his prospectus, it is wri...

NATIONAL HUMILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 February 1850

? NATIONAL HUMILIATION. ' We are sorry to observe that two influen tial journals oppose thems 'lves to the gene r»Kwi9h for a day of humiHationand prayer. They admit the grievious nature of the pes tilence 4-vhich is now wasting the land ; but they argue that, instead of being taken as an indication of Divine displeasure, or as a ? special call to repentance, it must be viewed ? simply- as a consequence of some general lawwhich Providence has appointed for the government of the wurld.; We must frankly ..admit that we hu,ve no, wish to argue (he the question on those- grounds ;: the argu ment, if valid, against prayer for the cessa-, tion of pestilence, must;, be valid against prayer, for any purpose whatever, and against every form or public worship.

We profess not to be intimately acquainted with the machinery of the various Govern ? ment departments or their particular modes of transacting business, but if we are to judge of them by their effects, and by their irregularity and want of punctuality, of which we hear instances every week, one of two conclusions is inevitable,— either that the machinery is imperfect, very badly ar ranged, or that those who are paid to work it are very inattentive to their duties. One particular instance has, just come under our notice. An individual made ap plication in the year 1S'45 to have his ticket-of-leave altered for another district. It has just arrived at the Bathurst Police Office, in the present year 1850, thus ta king a period of. five years to complete a simple transaction, which ought to have been effected, under ordinary management in double as many days.

Original and Select. Mozart's Lovb of Natural Scknbrt.— Of the effect of fine scenery upon Mozart, a characteristic anecdote is preserved. In travelling with his wife through a beautiful country, he would at first gaze attentively and in silence on the .view before him ; by degrees, as the ordinary serious and even melancholy expression of his face became enlivened and cheerful, he would begin, to sing, or rather to hum, and at last exclaim — ' Oh, if I had but the theme on paper!' On her answering that that might easily be, he would conliuue — ' Yes my treatment of it, no doubt. But how vexatious to be obliged to hatch one's conceptions within doors!' Mozart always composed. in the open air when , he could. Thus, Don Gio~ vanni was composed in a bowlinar-green, 'and the principal part of the Requiem in a garden-r two of his greatest works.

WANTON CRUELTIES. There is one point in which all English men, whatever be their politics, whatever their opinion of the merits or demerits of the Hungarian cause, must agree ; and that is, an unmitigated detestation. of the cruel ties by which the progress of the Austrian arms in Hungary was di8grab'ed/7and.hy; which the victory of the Russo-Austriati armies is still tarnished. Not merely are the chiefs of the national party taken within thfi limits of Huns^arv relentlessly shot or hanged ; but those who huve escaped; and' have taken refuge in the territory of a neutral power, are still persecuted, and their extradition demanded. But above all, the most unjustifiable atrocity consistsjin.con-. founding the innocent with/the, guilty (using guilty in the imperialist sense of the* word). r Not . merely was no distinction ,, of age or sex made by Haynau, not merely did. he make whole communities responsible for tSe. acts of individuals during the course of the war, but we find the same...
