To the Editor of the Goubilrs Heriald POUNJiKEEPING. ' C Sin,-I take the liberty of requesting thatyou will give insertion to a few statements that I wish to make relative to the poundkeeper of this disirict, who has put himself forward on all oc casions as the advocate and champion of pound keepers throughout the colony. , -When contrasting himself with others of liis class, he would lead the public to. believe that' ithere never was such an upright ponndkeeper as' :liinself, discharging the duties of his office with I1 the strictest impartiality. Alas! for the frailty of .hniuan nature. I wonder if any person ever heard of such a. thing as a LITTLE PRIVATE..SALE to suit the convenience of the poundkeeper? Some will say I 'don't know what you mean. Well, gentle render, I' shall let you into the secret. On the 10th of last November, two head of horses, and one head of horned cattle,' were to be sold by public auction at twelve o'clock at noon;- the sale commened at" the. stated time...

NEW GOLD MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 6 January 1849

NEW, GOLD 'MINE. A strange revolution is at present taking place in California. A gold region has been discovered on the American fork of the Sacramento, and all California is rushing thither to dig. Half the population of San Francisco has already gone. I have conversed with several intelligent and trustworthy, gentlemen who have just been on a visit thither, to satisfy themselves of the truth of the reports. The gold occurs in an alluvium, and is disseminated over a region of fifty or more miles in length. The people who are there digging obtain, on an average, from ten to fifty dollars per day, washing by hand-some obtain one hundred dollars per day, but not continually. It is on wild land, and of course every body goes and digs that pleases. All who have been to examine either. remain to dig or have returned with their families to make preparations. . As a consequence all branches of business except gold digging are at a dead stand. Workmen of all sorts are off at once-gardens, ...

To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 6 January 1849

To the Editor of the Goulbur1n Herald. Ser.,-I beg to call your attention to the very dirty state of the Episcopalian Church. The seats are literally covered with dust. It is the height of folly to wear good clothes, and the next time I go, I mean to wear my old moleskin trousers and fustian jacket. The ladies must feel the effects of the filthy state of the pews even more than myself. Surely some arrangement might be made to keep the house.of God decently clean. A large revenue is derived from the rent of the pews, and no one can tell what becomes of it. I'remain, Sir, Your obedient servant, A CHURCH-GOER.

She is very melancholy in verse, but very witty in prose, and at our expense; but we so dearly love the Indies, that even their sarcasm, levelled at our poor selves, is more acceptable to us than would be their neglect. To the question she has referred to our decision, we must anuswer with the Irishman in the story, " Both."

MAGISTERIAL DECISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 6 January 1849

MAGISTERIAL DECISIONS. WE print in another column, for the amusement of our readers, a letter signed ' An Employer of Labour." Although it purports to be a defenice of the decision given in a case reported in this journal of the 23rd ultimo, we think that the writer has fought shy of the main point on which we founded our animadversions on the verdict. It is not of the slightest consequence whether any agreement existed, or did not exist, between the plaintiff and de fendant in that case, as to the latter sending the former with his flock to any particular station; it is a question not german to the matter in hand: it is with the discharge we have to do, and with no other document. The discharge was an evidence of service, and a proo; of the completion of that service : the discharge was an acknowledgment that both par ties were willing to dissolve any agree ment that existed between them, and upon the production of that document before the Bench, we contended that their worships ha...

LAND DEPOSITS AND IMMIGRATION REMITTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 6 January 1849

LAND DEPOSITS AND IMMIGRA TION REMITTANCES. Is our last issue we re-printed from the Government Gazette a notice of an ar rangement that had been decided upon, having for its purpose the assisting of small capitalists in the purchase of Crown Lands. The new arrangement confers a two fold benefit on the poorer classes of the community : that of becoming the pro prietors or land on easy terms, and of being entitled to have the greater por tion of the purchase money devoted to the importation of emigrants of their own choice. The working class, by the exercise of the slightest reflection, will observe the advantages thus held out to them; for not only will they receive an interest for their deposits until they are expended in the purchase of such portions of land as they may desire to possess, but they will in a great measure have control over a portion of their money after it is so devoted, in selecting as recipients for Government bounty such emigrants as they may desire to be brough...

GUNDAGAI. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 6 January 1849

GUNDAGaIZ, (cRow. OUR OWN oon1ESPONDENT.). The-hay crop in this neighbourhood has been secured in excellent condition. Christmas day and the day previous we had very heavyy rains, with lightning and thunder; at this time the weather is all that we could desire to secure. the wheat. A shepherd of Mr. Mate's, whilst with his   sheep in the bush, met with a serious accident by a braneh or limb of a tree falling upon him, which broke his thigh. He was in the bush two days before he was found. Mr. Surgeon Large, of the Tumut, was called in,who reduced the fracture. Subsequently the same gentleman operated on a man for cancer in the lip, and we are happy to say both cases are doing well. We lately witnessed.an awful effect of light ning, which struck a large sized tree completely in its centre,. as it was rent and shivered into thousands of pieces, describing a circle of one hundred yards, strewing the timber in all forms and sizes, from an ounce to a hundred pounds; some spl...

Original Poetry. THE FORSAKEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 13 January 1849

THE FORSAKEN. Yes! thou art gone, And oa my heart I feel-a sickening weight, I have no thought, save that I am alone And desolate. And I shall hear No more the sound of thy dear voice, whose tone Fell like sweet music's murmurs on my ear, ;For thou art gone. And I shall gaze Never again-oh! thought of misery-. On thee, whose image time can ne'er erase From memory. For in my heart Dwells love too deep, too unlike thine to change, Which e'en thy coldness, faithless as thou art, ' Cannot estrange. Yes ! thou art gone, Thou hast forsaken me, and 1 must mourn Thy faithlessness, yet hopelessly love on Without return. Yet time flies fast, And e'en the agony within my breast Will perish in the grave, where I at last Shall be at rest. ELLA. Goulborn; Jan. 1, 1849. AT the request of numerous subscribers, we have been iuduced tobre-publish the following humo. ross and witty morceau, which appeared some time since in Bell's Life in Sydney.:

TIE WILD Doo.--Mtr., . S.

I run much larger flocks than I did for merly, and where a man could only herd 1000 sheep, a boy of nine years can herd 1500. \My losses bywild.,logs were at one time incalculable -now wild aitd tame have alike a decided aver sion to the nei;hbourhood. Forty wild dogs were destroyed at this station in the first four teen days of last May. Nimrod and his friends having driven them from the plains, they came here to refresh, which they did on strychnine. May they rest in peace! One or two ounces of strychnine will clear any run in the counnty.

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 13 January 1849

IRELAND. It was confidently stated at the latest advices that O'Gormian, instead of.escaping to- America, was at the head of five. thousand insurgents; in the mountinus to the eiast of the County of Limerick. Also that Doheny was still at large, keeping his pursuers at bay from Slievenumon to the Gaulties. The object of these rumours appear to be to .embarrass the Government, which was certainly attended with some success, as Dublin was in a constant state of excitement. Intelligence has been received of a battle having been fought at. a place called Glenbower, with .a result which lhas" been described as been more despicable in a military point of view than that,. of Boullagh. The police barrack was attacked by, about one huindred men, the few constables who had charge of it retiring to Carrick. An en gagement took place; two insurgents were killed, several wounded, and 'several taken prisoners; one policemeain was wounded, ' Dublin, 18th September, 18480. ,The movement in the Soou...

It appeared. from the, evidence that on the 2nd instant, deceased went to the Thistle Inn, and after having a gliiss of something to drink agreed to run in some horses in company with a Mr.' Conn, who is residing at Mr. Douglass'. Just after they started from the house, deceased said joking, 'I cannot ride ;' he then commenced galloping over some rocks at a furious rate. Mr. Corni lost sight of him for ten minutes, when he saw his horse at some distance without its rider;. :he immediately made towards it, and found deceased'at the foot of a tree; upon trying to lift him up he discovered that he was dead. This' witness then went for Dr. Kemble, who found him in the same state as described. The Jury having examined the ...

COMMERCIAL DISTRESS IN GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 13 January 1849

:CCOMI'tERCIAL DtSTRELSS IN GOULBURN. Ttaista is not a class in the town of Goulburn but complains of the depres sion of the times. The storekeepers cry out that there are' no buye.s of the comn modities with which their warehouses are filled ; the tovern-keepers, that the spacious looms which, at an immense expense, they built for the accommoda tion of the public, are empty and neg lected; and the humble artisan, to whom the siablo ?rosperity of a town is in debteel, tilh trade has entirely' forsaken hiimi, and that iiuless the times rei'ive, he will be?acuomi at ba lll?t?m t. Such are the daily complaints, and such the reality of the case, and yet we hear of no one seeking out, with due diligence, the cause of.depression, and offering suggestions for the future direc tion of capital and labor, in order to re establish the former healthy state of comnmerce. We beg the reader's serious attention to the remarks we are about 'to make, confident as we are that heretofore the mind of. a...

POSTAGE REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 13 January 1849

POSTAGE REFORM. THE Pos' OFFICE is a great national institution; it is one of the constituents of our social economy ; and as its bene fits ark freely open to all, it is reason able to suppose that any proposed de rangement of its present system of ope ration, must create considerable interest throughout the colony. Evils, not inconsiderable, have arisen out of the high rates of postage. Of all expenses which we are called upon to pay, that of postage should be paid most cheerfully, because it is for a service per formed. But, when more is demanded than should properly defray the expense of the service, the people look at the payment more in a grudging than a cheerful light, and this has produced, amongst other evils, the following : 1st.-A habit, which every year is becoming more general, of sending let ters in parcels by the mail, or by private hand, instead of through the Post Office, to the evasion of the law; and whatever induces people to contract a habit of evading a law, is ...
