THE PEACE CONGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 17 September 1851

THE PEACE CONGRESS. fFrom Punch.) Hnw the world would stagnate, were it not for the follies of the hair-brained and enthusiastic! Happily, they now and then mak- the sides of the grave and wise shake with -wholesome laughter; even though the aforesaid wisdom and ^gravity quickly. sub- side into compassion. Frofoundest city of the Utopians ! How many laughs has wis dom enjoyed at the cost of speculative fully I. There was one Harvey, who avouched a discovery of thecirculationofthe blood. And the world laughed, and then rebuked him ; and finally — for his outrageous nonsense — - I punished him by depriving; him of his ' practice. There was one Jenner, who — having speculated upon the hands of certain dairy maids — theorised upon vaccine virus, and declared that in the cow he had found' a remedy for the small pox. And the; ?world shouted, and they were especially droll, fur telling, in their excess of witty fancies, the growth of cow's horns from ihe heads 'of vaccinated babies. When i...

THE WOLF CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal — 20 September 1851

THE WOLF CHASE. Br JTakia J. JI'Intosh. I had left -ray friend's house one evening ,' just before dusk, with the intention of skat ing a short distance up the noble Kennebic, ?which glided directly before the door. A ? peerless moon rode through an occasional fleecy cloud, and stars twinkled from the ?sky and from every frost-covered tree in millions. Your mind would wonder at the light that came glinting from ice, andsndw —wreath and incrusted branches, as the eye followed for mites the broad gleam of the Kennebic. that like a jewelled zone swept . between the mighty forests' on its banks; And yet all was still. The cold seemed to have frozen tree, and air, and water, and every living thing (that rhoved;f Even the ringing of my skates on the ice ^echoed back from the Moccason Hill with a starl ing clearness, and the crackle of the ice as I passed over it in my course, seemed to follow the tide of the river with lightning speed.

MO RE TON BAY. . Prospecting. — We have no authentic in formation of any success having attended' the various parties who are now but pro specting in these districts.

The Queen arid Prince Albert were to be entertained by the Corporation of London, at Guildhall, on the 2nd of. Ju'y. The interest of the Industrial Exhibition was still sustained in the public mind.

^Ss^rten'anU ^ouutrg vjSel»s.; OUR GOLD.NBWS IN FNGrLAND. (From the S. M. Herald.) There can be no doubt that the intelli gence of our gold discovery will arrive in England, at latest, this diy, September 12th: and it is more than probable that letters would reach there as early as Au cust 20th. We are led to these conclusions from the following circumstances : The Oriental, Captain Carr, chartered by Messers. D -naldson and Co. to proceed to the Eastern seas, left Sydney on the 31st of May. and took with her despatches from Sir Charles Fitz Roy to the Colonial Office. Other despatches were sent by the Speed, hence May 23rd, to Valparaiso, the mail by wnich vessel, via Panama, would possibly be delivered in London about the 20th of August. By the Golden Spring, ulso hence. May 30ih, letters were despatched from two mercantile houses, and she arrived at Sin gap -re in time for the steamer to Cevlon,— ? the mail by which would arrive in England about August 24th.
