To the Editor of The Bathorst AdvocatS. v-..- , , ; Killoshiel, Augtist'6, 1848; SIBt_-A Mr. Flower, with the initials of A..SLR.S N. appended to his name, has ho nored me with a literary effusion, by pub ' liehing' in your columns his mongrel prp dpdtipn in the shape of a letter, ' which,: by ,.your permission, i Bhall be duly noticed,- but fjbef ore entering : upon the' pleasurable task of replying to this choice specimen of the coun ter, I think' it- my duty towards that per sonage ;to ' notice those initials : --they are, I conceiyeiso. truly characteristic, of his new calling, that ,1 should be deficient in the courtesies of life were I to attempt to de prive him of the benefit of their import.

Attempt to Kill a Newspaper in the Prime of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 12 August 1848

Attempt to Kill a Newspaper in the Prime of Life. ©'Thb Proprietor of this Publication is under the painful necessity of informing his Subscribers, that he has been seriously injured by his compositor, Thomas Henry Gray, absenting himself from his employ ment nearly the whole of the week, which is the cause of so small a portion of this Number being produced. Necessary steps have been taken to remedy this evil, which we hope will not occur again. On Wednesday evening last, the friends of Mr. Lord (about seventy in number) met at Mrs. Black's Inn, for the purpose of par. taking of a Public Dinner, to which that Gentleman had been invited. Dinner was on the Table at six o'clock, and after the cloth was removed the usual Toasts were given and Speeches suited to the occasion were delivered ; the party was occasionally enlivened by the melodious strains of the town band which had been engaged for the occasion, and the Gentlemen present. were so delighted with the company of each other, t...

To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. Bathurst, August 16, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 19 August 1848

To the Editor of The Bathcrst Aovocath. Bathurst. August 16, 1848. Sib, — In the various publications of the Colony I have frequently observed the enunciation of prin ciples highly important to the well-being of man in general, and especially so as regards this Colony. Those which have more especially arrested my attention I will endeavour to reduce to a few sim ple propositions. The Waste Lands of the Colony are held in trust by the Sovereign for the use and benefit of the Subject. To simplify this proposition, we will suppose the Sovereign to be thelandlord, and the Subject the tenant. Now, all experience con- , firms the fact that, a well doing tenant makes a wealthy landlord ;.and that the re-action of an oppressed tenantry involves the landlord in ruin. In respect to this Colony, the Crown possession is of such an indeterminate value, and so liable to fluctuations, against which no foresight can possibly provide, that an obstinate adherence to previous terms, in the shape of Ac...

To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate, Bathurst, August 9. 1848. Sir, — I observe in your last paper, that "An Observer " has been observing myself,   and has published to our little world his observations. I question whether I have much right to trespass on the patience of your readers with any further remarks. I apprehend the Government has taken the present step to sweep the bush of improper characters, and to bring them more imme- diately under the eye of the police. That innocent Squatters should suffer is to be deeply regretted; but if must not be for- gotten that innocent Grantees have been plundered for years ; and that if such a per- son wish to live peaceable, his stock is the first that must pay "black mail," and in the   largest measure. I, for one, have been breeding cattle for upwards of 25 years, and have not now my original stock ! For the last ten years I have not been able to kill a fat beast ! Nor to secured one heifer in ten ! Yours, MI...

I then asked Mr. North, who had previously repeatedly promised me his vote, if he would be in Bathurst on the 29th, he told me he would, but said "I do not think my   vote is any good in consequence of my Insolvency." I replied it was — he then pledged himself to be in Bathurst to vote for Mr. Lord, and further promised to use his influence at Carcoar.

Sir,— You lately called the attention of your readers to the subject of Flax Grow- ing, and one of your Correspondents, evi- dently a practical man — responded to your call. I think your Correspondent would confer a benefit on the District if he would give us all the probable results of Flax cul- tivation. What would be the quantity of Flax per acre? What quantity of Seed wood be produced ? What prospect is there of a Linseed Oil Manufactory being esta- blished ? &c.           From Irish papers of February last I glean the following particular : — Prime Flax £3 7s. 6d.—Inferior, £1 16s. 6d. per cwt. Linseed Oil, 2s. 4d. per gal.— for feeding, 5s. 9d. per bush.— Coke, 13s. per cwt. — meal, 13s.

It is notorious that most of the half   caste aborigines aremurdered by the tribe     to which they belong.*** It is neces- sary to urge upon the Representatives the necessity of some measure to restrain this course of murder.             No doubt can be entertained that some revision of the Land Regulations will take place. Whenever this may occur the Re- presentatives ought to be prepared with a detail of the unauthorised occupants of Crown Lands, and, especially with the characters of the "hangers on" at these stations.

©ciuinffl ' Ctnxgipatns errce. -y :; To the Editor of Th^Bathurst Advocate. Bathurst, August 10, 1848. Sir,— In the report oF the Bathurst Election, given in the Herald of Monday, the 7th of August, I find a veiy lengthy speech of Mr. Lord, of which he did not speak jive lines. By what means tfu»h a column and-a-half -furnished by a reporter could have found its way into his notes, was to us all, for some time, a great mystery; until. being hard pressed, he admitted that Mr. Lord had furnished him with them. It certainly was a most barefaced attempt to im pose on the Electors arid make them believe that the man whose eloquent effusions for the past five years, both in and out of Council, would not, if printed, have occupied half the space of this speech, was after all a powerful orator. With some it ha3 actually passed current, from having appeared in the Herald, and it is right that the Herald should at once undeceive them, by informing .them that this report was a false one, and t...
