POLICE PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 6 September 1851

POLICE' PAY. 'Th,b irregularities of the police pay have called forth our remarks on previous occa sions, but from u private communication from Molong we learn that the police of- the Western District are paid not only irregu'r larly, but unequally. Whilst the Bathurst, Orange, and, we are informed, the Welling ton police are allowed 43. 6d. per diem, the unfortunate officials of Molongr are starving on 3s. 9d: To suppose that they can keep themselves. on their, pay is. absurd. With flour at Is; a lb.f, the thing1 is' impossible'. But independently of this consideration, there can exist no shadow of reason why the Molong police should be worse paid than the police of the neighbouring villages, the more particularly as it is in about the worst position of the lot as regards the necessaries of life. There is something evidently wrong which requires investigation. Two of the constables, we understand/are married, and have families. How they manage to exist on their starvation allowance...

Sir, — Since my' return to Syduey oh Saturday last, I have read some, rather lengthy remarks in your paper of the 20th ultimo, on an extract from a letter of., mine which it would seem was published in' the Empire, I am not aware how this extract came to be published. It formed part of a hurried letter addiessed by me to a friend in Sydney, , and was published without my knowledge or consent. About its publica tion I am quite indifferent, but may as well Aere remark that theprodtice there alluded to from the dry gullies should have been (and in my letter I believe is) weekly and not daily. ? ? * ? I must confess that I feel rather amused at your anxiety, lest the peo'ple of Sydney should be misled by an extract from a mere ' gossiping letter of mine to a friend, while in the very next article which you publish from your own correspondent, you more than confirm the amount given in ...

Local Intelligence. LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 6 September 1851

Local Intelligence. LAND SALE. The Court House was crowded on Wednesday last, the day , on. which the sale of suburban allot ments took place; and, as will be easily gathered from the accompanying statement, competition ran very high, as much as £24 per acre being given for an allotment on the flat near the pound. The prices generally show a very great advance upon those given at any of the previous sales, and afford a pretty good idea of the enhanced value of land in and about Bathurst since the discovery of our gold fields. Parties are beginning to look forward to the village of Peel as a place of future promise on account of its situation in the direct line to the Turon. All the allotments in that locality offered   for sale were therefore eagerly bought at respecta ble prices, but the suburban lots contiguous to the town realised much more than the moat ? sanguine could have anticipated.         VILLAGE OF PEEL. &a...

House Robbery. — On Monday last, 17 ounces of gold, in a small calico bag, was taken out a small cupboard in one of Mr. Whitton's sitting rooms, to which it appears many persons had access in the course of the evening. Suspicion fell upon Mr. Peter Cavan, late shopman in Mr. Forbes's service, because he slept in the apartment that night; and started for the Turon very early on the following morning. A policeman was sent upon his track, who overtook and ap- prehended him ne...
