IMPORTANT FROM CANADA. FORMATION OF AN ANNEXATION ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 March 1850

IMPORTANT FROM CANADA, FORMATION OF AN ANNEXATION ASSO CIATION. CFrom the New York Tribune, Nove?nber 13 J Montreal, Friday, November y, laiy. — The Annexationists of Montreal held their first meeting yesterday, in the Temperance. Hall, St. Maurice -street. The meeting was called for twelve o'clock, but it was one before it was called to order by Mr; John Redpath, appointed cnairman, ana here were, when the proceedings began, about 150 persons in the room, and at the close probably about 200 : and is, I believe generally considered a failure as to num bers and also as to influence, the greater number of the leading men who signed the Declaration and particularly the Tories, having failed to make their appearance. The leading ones present who spoke were Messrs. Holmes, Dewitt, Frost, Jones, and M'Kay, who were all old Reformers. The only leading Tories who spoke were Messrs. Rose and Johnson, the discharged Queen's Counsel, who having been attacked, think it would look like cowardice...

AN IRISH DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 March 1850

AN IRISH DUEL. AT*an election for Queen's County, between General Walsh and Mr. Warburton, of iGarryhiach, about the year 1783, took place the'.' moist curious duel of any which have occurred within my recollection. A Mr. Frank Skelton, a boisterous, joking. fat young fellow, was prevailed on, much against his will, to challenge the exciseman of the town for running the butt-end of a horsewhip down his throat the night before, whilst he lay drunk, and sleeping with his mouth open. The exciseman insisted that snoring at a dinner-table was a personal offence to every gentleman in company, and would therefore' make no apology. Frank, though he had been nearly choked, was very reluctant to fight ; he said ?' he was sure to die if he didj as the excise man could snuff a candle with a pistol-ball ; and as he himself was as big as a hundred dozen of candles, what chance could he have .?'»:' We told him jocosely to give the exciseman no time to take aim .at him, by which means he might perh...

OUR POLITICAL FUTURITY. To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 March 1850

OUR POLITICAL FUTURITY. To the Editor of The Bathurst Free Pbess. Mri Editor, — Since the Home Government appears to be reckless of our clainss as Colonists,, and its present line of policy promises no ameliorating charge for the future ; since every intermedial act seems strongly indicative of a speedy withdrawal of the Imperial protection, and since, in suc7icase, we shall inevitably be thrown upon our own re sources ; it certainly behoves us to examine the chaotic premises from which we could deduce the. elements of self-government, and to make such provisional arrangements for the same as events may require. ' ? First, we should constitutionally but resolutely resist the introduction of British felons:- into -fhe colony. If we are to become a distinct people nationally, why should the flood-gates of European crime first be opened upon us ? Why should our land be inundated with evils, that possibly may, not be counteracted for generations to come P. .-The era- of our independence...

Country News. CARCOAR. "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 March 1850

Country News. [from our carooar, correspondent. j CARCOAR. ' .*' Bender unto Caesar thd things that aro Caesar's.!' The Carcorean public were not a little surprised: upon perusing a paragraph in the Free Press of the 9th of March, in which the credit of capturing the mail robber Barry is awarded to the Chief Constable of Bathurst, on account of the real or supposed excellency oi nis peculiar syswm ui tactics. Now, although willing to give that august functionary the credit of being up to his business, I, as an individual, and the people of Carcoav generally, are very unwillinq that, he should 'boar away the palm ' when he has not won the victory. Mr. Davis's tactics or particular system of opera tions, had no more to do with the capture of Barry than with the storming and taking of Scringa patam. If there beany credit in the affair ,it is in the first place due to Mr. Meyei^for the suspicion he en tertained, which finally led to detection, and to Quinn, the watch-house keeper as an ...

A HOT BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 30 March 1850

A HOT BATH. A couple of gentlemen, John Smith arid James Brown were seated in the anfce-rooin of a bath house, awaiting their turns for a bath. After they got tired of twirling their thumbs, Smith asked Brown whether he preferred a hot or cold bath. ' Brown, who was remarkably fond of running a rig on any one, said he was partial to hot baths, and enjoyed them so frequently, that he didn't think there was any other man in creation that could re main in water at the temperature he ordinarily used. Smith was one of those kind of men who never permit themselves to be outdone in anything, and one word led onto another, until at length Smith proposed the following wager, to which Brown agreed at once — Two baths, in rooms adjoining, were to be pre pared. Cold water to the depth of six inches to bo let in. They were to enter af the same instant, the hot water tap to be then turned, and the one that first cried 'enough,' was to pay f^r a supper and ' fixins.' Smith went honestly to work, e...

Hardly has the surface of the earth received the re freshing moisture before the previously barren .steppe begins to exhale sweet odour, and to clothe it3elf with kylUngias, ; the many paniculea of the paspalium, and a va riety of grasses. The herbaceous mimosas, with renewed sensibility to the influence of light, unfold their drooping slumbering leaves to greet the rising sun ; and tha early song of birds, and the-opening blossoms of the watet-plants, join to salute the morn ing. The horses and cattle now graze in in full enjoyment of life. The tall spring ing grass hides the beautifnl spotted jnguar, who, lurking in safe concealment, and mea suring carefully the distance of a single bound, springs, cat-like, as the Asiatic tiger, on his passing prey. Sometimes, (so the aborigines relate,) on the margins of the swamps the moistened .clay is seen. ...

Since cornmencing pur editorial career, it haa frequently fallen within the range of our ?duty, to speak in ho mild or measured terms of the apathy of all sections of society to questions of a social or national character. TliP.ffPnpral nnmnlniilt of those who have travelled the Republic of the United States of America, is; that there exists too little individuality of thought or action;-— that public opinion exercises uncontrollable sway, in many cases degenerates into a tyranny, very often precluding or rendering dan gerous that expression of opinion or indivi duality of action,, which, so long as they have their source in honest motive, and un fettered reason, are often indicative of a good and a great mind.

He is a wbrthv successor of his late hieh minded brother, and of his sister, of unwearied good works, Mrs. Elizabeth Fry. His letter ad dressed to Mr. Sturge, we regard as an im portant document. It enforces high and great principles, which however we may despair of their«ever being carried out to the extent which he enjoins, we are glad to see advanced and promoted by men who have so much influence on the opinion of the world as he and many of the members of the peace congress have acquired. It reminds us too, of a very discreditable, fact. After thirty four years of comparative prosperity, and we may say profound peace, but little has been done to diminish the enormous load of debt which had accumulated at ...
