PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

POUT PHILLIP. Rev! Dr. Lang.— We are gratified to find that there exists a strong desire in the community for the adoption of some mode of publicly acknowledging the great ser vices the Rev. Dr. Lang has rendered to this community, during his stay in Britain: It was resolved yesterday to present to Dr. Lang a purse of 300 sovereigns, during the stay of the Clifton, and a considerable sum was subscribed with that view in the course of the day. A meeting is convened for two o'clock to-day, at the Mechanics'. Institu tion, for the purpose of determining upon the steps proper to be taken. — Argus. Feb ruary 15. The Gardens.— The late tempestuous weather has made sad havoc amongst the gardens ; several of the trees have had their ? fruit completely shaken off in an unripe state, which will be a sad loss to the owners. We are fearful those men dependent upon such means of industry will smart severely. A very singular effect of the intense heat of one or two days:last week was observable i...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Destructive Flood at the Burra— -We published yesterday some particulars of the disastrous flood at the Burra Burra, but haviDg received more copious details from bur correspondent atKooririga, we proceed to give them in his own words:— 'The late- heavy rains have caused an immense destruction of property among the 'hutt 'ex cavated in the banks of ;the creek. -Some months ago the Patent 'Copper Company made a roadway across the creek for the use of the carts carrying the ore frona the: mine to the smelting works. This road- ; way being raised several feet above 'the level of the creek, formed a complete dam across i the waterway, a very small channel being left for the water to flow through. On Thursday morning the creek assumed a! most alarming appearance, arid the channel : through the roadway soon became choked.

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. (From the Colonial Times.') The town is a very bustling and extraordi nary place, and exhibiting high sympto os of trade and civilization. The natives are civilized and generally educated ; but the vices, as well as the advantaeresand refine ments of civilization, are established there. The population of Honolulu, I should say, must be somewhere about, seven or eight hundred ; the common people living in tent like huts or houses built of thatch or reeds, and lined with neat mats, which make them very clean and comfortable, considering the fineness of the climate. The upper classes of Kenakes (as the natives are called in their own language) dress' and live in the European or American style, partaking sometimes of the Spanish style and some times of the English, French, or American styles, just as the taste and influence of strangers of these nations happen to pre vail among them. Some of their houses are built in the best and most picturesque style of villa bui...

THE NICARAGUA AFFAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

THE NICARAGUA AFFAIR; (From Bell's Life in London.) If there has been a misunderstanding be tween, France and the United States on ac count of a piece of rudeness in the/conduct of M. Poussin, there is a misunderstanding between England and the United States on a matter of real importance. The question between them assumes the form of a claim made by each to a tract of territory, on the Mosquito Shore. In substance the ques tion is, which of the two shall have the power of controlling the passage across the Isthmus of Panama, which will soon per-, haps, come .into actual existence. The, practicability of this mode of transit has now been so far satisfactorily demonstrated that in all probability the execution of it will ere long be attempted, and the keen eyes of the British and United States traders are awake to the advantages which they may gain or the disadvantages they may incur by one or the other Government be coming master of the entrance to this short cut into the Pacific.

FROM THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

FROM THE MINTES. From the Pacific News, December 22. Intelligence from the Mines. — We learn from a gentleman who has just re turned from an extensive visit to the northern mines, that the recent freshet in the rivers has nearly subsided, the water fallen several feet, and miners were again able to work in the beds of the rivers. A great deal of excitement, consequent upon the scarcity of provisions in the mining re gions, previous to the late fall of rain, has existed, and great numbers thereupon abandoned good diggings and made tracks for Sacramento. The rivers are now nearly as low as they have been at any period of the year — the freshet has been the means of opening a vast extent of new de posits, and the roads are now lined with. the returning miners. In the vicinity of Mor mon Bar, on the North Fork, American River, very excellent deposits have, been found in many large ravines, converging to the point, that will ; enable miners/to work thenvthe whole winter.

(Fro?n the Sydney Morning Herald, March 1.) A respectable young man, who went to San Francisco in the Inchinnan, and re turned to Sydney in the Spec gives the following information : — He says that the misery and distress among the labouring ;classes in California is beyond description. The wages are down to five dollars a day, which was scarcely sufficient to maintain a man, while a family could not subsist upon it. . The prices were — bread one dollar a iloaf, weighing one pound and a quarter, and of very inferior quality ; beef, lO^d. per lb.; mutton, very bad, is. 3d. per lb. ; salt pork. Is. per. lb. ; eggs, a dollar each ; potatoes a dollar per lb. During the month ?he was in California the only vegetable he saw' was one cabbage, and, for that three j dollars were obtained.

I think from present ap pearances, that there will be an advance on fine Sydney arid Port Phillip wools, such as have been at Is. 3d. to Is. 6d. as there have been many en quiries from Belgium and France for such ; and parties are anxious to-buy before the sales where the dealers will sell, but at a small advance.

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

Extracts. Lady Franklin.— The amiable lady, for whom and her gallant sympathies are- so deeply awakened, is at present gleaning all the information she can about those dreary regions in which Sir J. Franklin has been so long imprisoned, in order to organise some plan of relief early in spring. For this pur pose she has visited Kirkaldy to avail her self of the information which George Turn bull, Esq. (long a proprietor and manager of the whalers there), and Captain Kirinear,' whe for a long period of his life has been familiar with that desolate country, could afford her. It will be recollected that it was Captain Kinnear who brought to this coun try the Esquimaux youth Akhatook, who before he returned to his native snows, had acquired a tolerable knowledge of the Eng lish language. It is much to be regretted that Akhatook was not Pond's Bay when, the natives gave the information concerning the imprisonment of the exploring parties'. In any future attempt to relieve the sufferers (i...

THE EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

THE EARTH. C From the British Quarterly Review.) These are the few phenomena which a life less globe would exhibit— the howling wind, the drizzling rain — the red-rolling torrent — the bare, naked, rugged surface— the oc casionajb.burst of the volcano, vomiting out volumes of smoke, ammoniated vapour, and torrents of liquid lava, while the rolling earthquake would drive along its subter anean path, rending the surface into chasms, and now raising, now depressing the mountain-tops in the ocean. But no sooner is organic life introduced upon the earth and in the waters, than innumerable operations are immediately called into .ac tion by virtue of the controlling and excit ing vital powers of vegetable and animal organisms. From henceforth the equili brium and repose of passive nature are con tinually broken in upon, and that perpetual vortex is set into activity by which the par ticles of organic matter are incessantly changing places and forms, now combining to produce the wood, and f...

Foreign Intelligence. CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 9 March 1850

Foreign Intelligence. CHINA. Piracy.— 7-By the bi-monthly mail, from Gralle, the public in Europe and India have already heard of the destruction of the fleet of Shap-ng-tsai. Of Shap-ng-tsai himself nothing has been seen or heard since he left his burning flag-ship ; whether he escaped the hostile shot, or whether he fell in the indiscriminate slaughter is unknown. If shot, his body might be swept away with the tide, or, if cast on the banks of the river, there ivas no one to identify it as the re mains of the once dreaded chief. Some members of the expedition are of opinion that the boat in which he left his junk, never got to sea; that she was stranded on a point of land at the mouth of the river, and that Shap-ng-tsai took to the bush, where he will starve1 or be forced to sur render to the Cochin- Chinese. The good effect of the several expeditions for the sup - ipression of piracy, ^undertaken; during the last four months, is already felt in the- im- proved trade with the west...
