TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 29 July 1848

TUESDAY. This Dat, about twelve o'clock, the Returning Officer, and the two Candidates, supported by some of their friends, appeared on the Hustings, when Captain Sutherland said he came there to declare the State of the Poll. There were registered for Mr. Lord 87 Votes, and for Mr. Darvall 87, and it devolved on him to give the Casting Vote, he must say in justice to the party in whose favor he would decide, that they had never spoken to him on the subject of his Vote. He had been ap pointed by the Governor to the office he held, with out personal application; and he would give an independent Vote. He declared his word in favor of Mr. Darvall, and one great reason why he decided so was, that Mr. Lord had voted for him self, which Mr. Darvall could not do or he would have been returned without a casting Vote. He had known Mr. Lord for some years and Mr. Darvall was a stranger to him, and he decided in favor of the latter for the reason stated- He hoped they would return to their hom...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 29 July 1848

FRASTGE. We copy the following statistics from n French paper, for vhe benefit of the hajipvr Historians who may have to write the Lifts of Louis-Phillippe : — Since the Revolution of July, ' 1. There have been- 1 129 Drosecutiona^ against the press. 'There have been 57 newspapers sup pressed. 'There havebeen 7,1 10,500 francs drawn in the shape of fines, from editors and pro prietors of journals.' This is not bad for a King who was car ried to the throne on the shoulders of the very men he has since thrown down, and lifted into his present position by the very papers he has since crushed. The Charte may be a ' verity,' but then it is a Truth,, which keeps itself very private at the bottom, of the Puits de Grenelle, for there is not, the smallest taste of it to be had at the Tuileries, for love or money — not for love at all events. What a noble epitaph the above statistics would make ! They .would read admirably, just after the words ' uni versally regretted.'

THE FAMILY VISITER. NO. VII. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 29 July 1848

THE FAMILY VXSXTER. NO. VII. ' Wha will be a traitor knave ? Wha can fill a coward's grave P Wha sae base as be a slave ! Traitor ! coward ! turn and flee ? ' Although we are not disposed to enter upon debateable ground, we think it a duty we owe to the young, on the occasion of the present Election, to pay them a friendly visit. From all we have seen, heard, and read, we have sufficient ground to state our expectations of the future: and on the same ground we are led especially to direct our attention to the young on the present oc casion, in the fond hope that we may make some impression on their minds, because we have little hope of even being heard by those of riper years. Some of the preliminary meetings which have been held, have presented a cha racter unworthy of the important concerns which lay before it, and we wish to impress this conviction indelibly on the minds of our young readers. We are perfectly aware that it is too generally considered, as a matter of course, that ...

Care not for the rebel band : Bloodhounds springing from their lair : Twist them as you would a wand ! Bury them in dark despair. Bathurst. 0. V. Q.

POETRY. FAREWELL LINES TO A LADY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 29 July 1848

POETR*?. FAUEWBLL LINES TO A. LADY. The following beautiful lines are supposed to have been written by a gentleman who bade adieu to bis native shore in 1841. with the intention of settling at the Cape of Good Hope, . but who, having been borne past it in a tremendous gale of wind, \v.aa: fortunate enough to find a home in a hap pier, if not in a lovelier land. Wil't thou go to the land where the flowers ever bloom, And shed o'er the landscape their sweetest perfume ; Where the myrtle and mulberry wave in the breeze, And the cedar looks down on the tallest of trees ; . Where the hills sloping- bases all purple appear With the ripe juicy grape at the fall of the year ; Where the fig and the' orange are fairest and best, And 'where all who incline may partake of the feast.

ENIGMA.— No. 7. *? When the world looks cold and surly on us, where' can ??. we-, turn to meet a warmer eye, with such sure confidence as to a mother P' In the brierht hapov season of ioyous voutli, When ?we deem that each word is the spirit of truth, When we sport with the passions of Fancy's caprice, Nor believe that Fate's smiles will for us ever cease ; In that cherished day of sweet paradise hours, ' When the soul breathes of beauty like odorous flow'ra, We dream but of love,— nor vainly rely, That for ever 'twill beam in a fond mother's eyet And thus when the veil from our idol is torn, And the friends of prosperity ' laugh us to scorn ;' When the dread cup of sorrow its waters overflow. And coldly the winds of dark misery blow; When searching the world all in grief and despair, We find that alas ! there's no sympathy there ; In anguish we turn* — to our beacon light fly — Secure still of love from a dear mother's eye !

(JBctflinal -£avtcg$-ro'ttence. TO HENRY HEATHORN, ESQ., J.P. Per favor of Bathuhst Advocate. Sir, — You have addressed a letter to the Editor of the Bathurst Advocate, which I am about to pre sumo is really intended for the Electors of the District, through that medium. As one of the electors, therefore, I shall take the liberty of offer ing a few words in reply. You set out, Sir, with the assertion that, ' The contest is one of personality, and not of prin ciple ; ' and this assertion evidently applies to the supporters of Mr. Darvall. Now, Sir, allow me to tell you, that is an impudent, unwarrantable, and perfectly gratuitous assumption of yours. You have not the slightest foundation for such a sup position beyond, what you conceive to be, the fact of one or two individuals being actuated by motives of private pique, in their opposition to your favorite candidate. To found, on such a belief, the broad and sweeping charge that, between seventy and eighty of our fellow citizens, em...

Proceedings on the day of Nomi nation. On Tuesday, at twelvemo' clock, Mr. Darvall, ac companied by his friends, made his appearance on the hustings, and a few minutes afterwards Mr. Lord, escorted by his friends, arrived at the same' place, walking in procession, and headed by a flae of green and blue surmounted with a cob of corn. The colours worn by the friends of Mr. Darvall were green, blue and white. When order was restored among the assembly, the Returning Officer, (Captain Sutherland,) called on Mr. H. F. Stephen to {read the writ issued by His Excellency the Governor. The Returning Officer then said, that he hoped the public would hear all the speakers with patience and attention ; he hoped especially that they would hear both the candidates, and then they would be able to form a judgment for themselves. As Mr. Lord was their old member, and had been first in the field canvassing, he would be the first proposed to them. A quarter of an hour was then suffered to elapse befor...

&tiqins\ Caere dp difBentr. THE NOMINATION ON TUESDAY. To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst. Julv 26. 1848. Sir, — It is evident to any impartial observer of posing occurrences relative to our election, that this contest is not one of principle, but of person ality. Let our opponents say what they choose, it cannot be disguised that the opposition to Mr'. Lord was conceived in the very wotst spirit of personal malignity by unscrupulous characters, to gratify their unenviable propensities, and is now carried on by the same ungenerous impulse. Public charac ter, especially a political one, is at all times consi dered as public property, and is as it ought to be, open to fair and manly criticism, but to descend to the private transactions of any man (unless they are flagrantly immoral,) to promote a public mea sure, is to sacrifice the public weal on the unhal lowed altar of private revenge All the argument is on the one side of this maxim — all the practice of our ...
