PORT PHILLIP [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 February 1850

PORT PHILLIP We have'received Port Phillip papers to the 29th ult. ?? The Comparative Prices of Land in Geelong and' Melbourne.— If the value of «.«™n o;tps for buildines 'in Melbourne and Geelong be any criterion of commercial prosperity, Geelong certainly has the ad vantage over the city. The highest price given for land in the best business parts of Melbourne has not been for some time past so much by £2 per foot as that given for the bestbusiness sites here. Suburban land has never rated there from £2 10s. to £3 3s. per foot, as it has here in good situations. At a rough estimate, land to the amount of £3000 changes hands in Geelong weekly. — Geelong Advertiser. Van Diemen's Land Sheep. — Among the- - presentations to the Museum of the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land, at the last monthly meeting of the Fellows, was a prodigiously large concretionary mass, of an oblong shape, taken from the stomach of a sheep, composed of thin layers of ill di gested, but finely, sub-divided, ...

HORRIBLE MURDER IN QUEE'NS COUNTY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 February 1850

HORJilBMS, MURDER ,IN. QUEE'NS COUNTY. (From the Atlas Oct. 6.) A correspondent of the Leinster Express givesthe following narrative of a frightful crime committed in that province. -His let ter: is dated Tolerton, Saturday evening:— ' I have just attended aii inquest in.a case of murder, compared to which in atrocity that of the Mannings sinks into the shade. It is not usual to have to record such darkly demoniac traits in . the Irish character as that unfolded at this inquest, especially among the female portion of our peasant class, whose demeanour for modesty and womanly reserve has elicited warm eulogium from writers of every class and of every country. The murdered in the present in stance was husband, the murderess wife. She has not oly been pronounced guilty by a coroner's jury but has fully confessed. her' participation in the terrible tragedy.' The incidents are as follows :- — Catherine Thompson, a peasant girl, was,wedded some time ago to a person in her own class of lif...

PRANCE AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 February 1850

FRANCE AND AMERICA. At this moment the two greatest republics in the world are, like the old Porte and the wicked Emperor of Russia, at 'daggers drawn' with each other, and both at the mprpst. t.vifle. If France and America have a war it will be as to the question who is to pay, or who is to endure the loss of a few francs. The main cause of a quarrel, as we understand it, 'between France and America is this— a French vessel was.btt the point of being lost, the ship and/ crew ?Were saved by an American Government ' ship, and the American captain asked pay-. ment, for his trouble.

WAR AND THE OLIGARCHY—PEACE AND THE DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 16 February 1850

WAU /AND THE OLIGARG^yQ-£EACE ':?-: -} ' ^n6;^THE DEMOCFiACY. ? : : : . ' f Fromthe New* of the World.J We: do believe that there never was a time ??when it was more necessary to place upon their guard the peace-loving and liberty loving people of England than the present moment ; 'for, to our mind, there never yet was anything more apparent than the desire of all the oligarch'/ of England, of all par ties,5 to involve England in a conflict with some foreign nation and if possible to bring&n again another European war. . To the oligarchy of all parties— to the one as the land-tyrants, and to the' other as the monopoly-mongers, a general war would beat this moment of incalculable advan tage, and to the people it would be a dread ful loss, and the source of unnumbered .calamities in everyway.

In all human probability six months will not elapse before there h a general rising of, the people of that country ; this time, however, the movement, should it take --place, will originate with the peasantry/ The event of the past week in Paris was the 'interpel- lations'' on the subject of Italy, which have been hangingover the heads of the Ministers since before the recess. - On this occasion the government tbfck the initiative ; and M.

THE MM JJllST. mm:: PJiESS, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY: 16;, 1850. ' JIAGN'A ESX VEniTAS ET PR^3VALEBIT.' RUSSIA, AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY. The combined influence of England and France has at length reduced the Northern ? madman to reason, or rather frightened him into an acquiescence of the claims of justice and humanity. The last three years have been pregnant with events of a political character, inferior in importance to none to which the world ever bore witness. The French Revolution was the radiating point, from which there issued a series of revolu tions and national convulsions which, for a time, shook the political world to its centre, arid whose influences upon the destinies of society will be long and powerfully felt. That the. issue will be a beneficial one we verily believe. ..The .contention has not ' been that of a mob and its rulers. It has been the conflict of two mighty principles, one of which has governed the. world in all time past with an iron sway, but is fast losing its m...
