WESLEYAN TEA MEETING. Easier Monday was set apart as a holiday by the Wesleyans of liathurst. , A proces sion of the Sunday School pupils, attended by their teachers, through the maia streets of the town, took place in the middle of the day. In the evening a tea party was held iti the school adjoining the chapel, which was well attended, a considerable number having to be accommodated in the aisles of the chapel The neat and tidy appearance of the females and the smart holiday look of the males, together with the cheerful and happy countenances of both, communicated a pleasing1 interest to the scene. Modest mirth and subdued good humour circulated with the unintoxicating cup, and all appeared intent upon being pleased, and making others so. In the evening1 a meeting was held of the congregation and their-friends, who voted Mr. Fulton into the chair.

MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 April 1850

MEETING^ .. . A meeting was held at Mr. Arthur's Inn, -on Tuesday last, with the object of adopt ing measures for the erection of a school house in connection with the Church of ' England. George Suitor, Esq., having been called to the -? chair, he dwelt at some length upon ? the benefits immediately derivable from education,, to promote which was the object, for which the meeting now as sembled. ? .In any community, he said, where the blessings of education were widely scattered amongst the people, security for life and property was one of its effects. , When connected with religious instruction, it had a tendency to encourage habits of industry, suppress intemperance, enlarge and sanctify the mind, and imbue it with a love of truth. He compared the mind of a child to a sheet of paper in the hands of a draftsman, as capable of receiving any iih ? pression, and pointed out the importance of making just, right, and correct impressions, as upon the culture bestowed, depended, in a gre...

.Original Poetry. Mb. Edixoe. — Have yon ever heard of Mr. Adam Crotchet? — Well, I dare say you have not. No wonder; he never made any great noise in the world, although he Eoraetim.es .made a pretty loud sound f-'the Kirk, for he was a precentor, session clerk, teacher of vocal music, and parish school master, at Gabbytacher, and, without doubt, the most useful individual in the parish. He was an excellent teacher ; in my childhood, I attended his school for some years, and if nature had given me a capacity to receive, an intellect to comprehend, and a memory to retain, his instructions, it is pro bable I would now have been equal to some of the Seven Sages who are said, after due and deliberate consideration, to have come to the conclusion, that the quickest and most effectual way of putting an eel to death was to drown it.

In this case, as is well known, the Judges . were unariipious in their opinion as to the guilt, of -the pyjsoner,, bu^ thejlr conclusions are drawn from very different sources. Their Honors the Ghief Justice and Mr. 'Justice Therrv did not enter into the merits of the qi}estip,n as to whether the marriage ceremony, as, perforrned by the Rev. Dr. M'Garvie^a clergyman af the Presbyterian Church of Scotland, is valid in this colony, but confined themselves' to the particular ca.se under consideration. Mr. Justice Dickenson, on the contrary, considered the question at full length and with great ability. As this is a matter of consider able importance to the community at large, we give his concluding remarks, and are sorry the size of pur sheet will not admit of a full length report.

Our Political Futurity. "Temoora mutantur of nos mutamur in Hlis." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 April 1850

Our Political Futurity. ? ' TemDora mutantur. et nos mutanmr in lllis.'. Mr. Editor, — Notwithstanding the cleverness of: your last week's leader on the subject of 'Annexa- tion or Independence ,' I can perceive no irration ality whatever, in the anticipation of a future ex emption of these colonies from their present poli tical reliance and control. On the contrary, their extreme remoteness from England, and compara tive exclusion from necessary, privileges, together with their unique position in the southern world', are certainly arguments in- favour of the possibility and probability of the very consummation you deem so Utopian. There is another consideration. The doctrine of.analogy equally applies to historical and pro phetical events— and that, .too, with a force too persuasive to escape your acknowledged penctra-. tion. According to that doctrine, England is ap proaching a climacteric, the issues of which may prove similar to those experienced by nations in times gone by. / c...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 April 1850

MINING INTELLIGENCE. Things begin to look better at the Molong Mine. The ground has been opened in several places, and a sha ft sunk of considerable depth about a mile from the old workings. The men have at length come to a lode yielding ore of a very much superior quality to any hitherto discovered at the tormer place, , and there appears to be something like a prospect of a return for the very large but lay. We should be glad to hear of such an issue, for the company have displayed a liberality in the. undertaking, and a spirit of enterprise wluclTare very' creditable to them. , Cornish Settlement MiNrs.— The intelligence from these mines continues to be of a cheering cha racter.

They were certainly very rich, and he informs us that ore of the same description is very abundant. The proprietors are very sanguine as to their prospects.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 April 1850

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Where has, the.

The amount of. 'dust' deposited in the Bank of England is comparatively inconsiderable, and we find the United States has not been more highly favoured. The New York Herald says, that up to 1st October not more than threeanda half million dollars of Californian gold had arrived (about £875,000)and adds, 'This is small com pared with the receipt anticipated, and must dis appoint many of the most sanguine believers in the richness of the Californian gold mines.' If the gold has not gone ont of tho colony, it is. on the gambling table or in the pockets of the diggers. — L. Examiner.
