miscellaneous Extracts. SnbezingjMal- apropos -^-Xhe following ; laughable incident is related in, a New JY^ork paper :—-In : t^e new roelo- drama, recently ; got up at. the .Chatham Theatre, a famous: robber is taken and beheaded, and his head. is exhibited to the audience by being placed on a table in the centre' of the stage. ?To accomplish this to- the life, the robber's body is fixed to the table, and. his neck is fitted to a hole in the centre of the leaf, so that to the audience it looks, precisely as though the man's head had been cut off, and stood in a pool of its own blood upon the table. On the fifth night of the exhi bition, a wag got into the third tier of the stage . boxes, and by some .unexplained manoeuvre, managed to blow a lot of Scotch snuff over the stage, just at the time the head was placed on the table. As soon as the snuff had settled down the head commenced Bneezing, to the no small amusement of the audience ; and as the sneezing could not be stopped, the. ...

DEATH OF CAPTAIN W. H. WARNER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 April 1850

DEATH OF CAPTAIN' W. H. WARNER. C From the Alta California. Nov. 1. ) The melancholy fate of this officer has excited universal sympathy. The circumstances attending his death arc every moment inquired for, and as I have them from the best authority, I will state them for publication in your paper. Captain Warner left Saerftmfint.o o'ttv. in Antntat last, os corted by a strong body of infantry, for the purpose of exploration, but more especially to ascertain whether or not the Sierra Nevada were passable by the ordinary grade of railways. His course lay up the main valley of the Sacramento, Deer Creek, where the main escort 'with waggons were left, and the Captain with thirty men pushed on tho Peter Lossen trail to Grove Lake, near the source of Pitts River, one of the principal affluents of the Sacra mento. Here the emigrant trail crosses the divid ing ridge of the mountain by a steep and difficult ascent, so that it became necessary to search for a better pass. A camp was establis...

THE BATHURST MM PRESS. SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." THE NEWSPAPER TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 April 1850

THE BATHURgT ^REE PREsT SATURDAY, APRIL 13y 1850. 'MAONA EST VERITAS KX PBJEVAI.BBIT.' THE NEWSPAPER TAX. Although late in the field upon this ques tion, we have not the less sympathised with our contemporaries in their unanimous de nunciation of this iniquitous tax. We pro fess not to say anything new upon the sub iect. Its'Vvila are easily comprehended. To the producer and consumer; if we may so express ourselves, of newspaper literature, they are equally detrimental, and we are very certain that the imposition of the penny tax on newspapers can never answer the purpose for which it was intended, of making up any considerable deficiency in theireve-'' nue anticipated by the reduction of the post age on letters. If these vjews are correct, we do not see what particular obstacles stand in the way of the repeal of a tax which answers no one good purpose, and is alike a reflection upon the framers of the measure, and the age in which we live. A tax upon knowledge! A tax upon that ' wh...

CROWN LANDS SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 April 1850

CROWN LANDS SALE. Some weeks ago we drew, the attention of our readers to several cases of Government negligence in the derail management of their business. Another instance of such negligence we proceed to narrate, which operating a*B it does upon the more afflu ent portion or the community is not likely to pass unnoticed and unattacked. We al lude to the publication of a very large quan tity of government land in the Government Gazette, a portion of which publication we copied into the Free Press of last week. Since that publication we have been informed by a gentleman of respectability that a por tion of the.- lands advertised to be rented have-been rented by himself — that at the time appointed for that purpose by the land regulations, he renewed his lease, and-now ho^ds th4 receipt of the Colonial Secretary for pjEyrnent of his rent. He further in forms us that from his own knowledge; by Bfr the greater portion of the sections ad vertised in bur last, are the rented lands of ge...

He certainly had a difficult card to play when he, went to Ireland. He found the country writhing in the agonies of a pest and famine, which, in the duplicate severity of its ravages, exceeded any similar visitation by which an European people had been afflicted for ages ; ' a famine'' as Lord J. Russell tersely put it, ' a famine of the 14th cen tury operating on a population of the. 19th.' Tu multuous political movement excited, and was stimulated by the unbearable sufferings of tho people.

CBi'tcrutftl CffceesJpmtiJcitce* To the Editor of The Bathuust Free Press. Sir, — Permit me through the columns of your jour nal to address a few words to the- Presbyterians of Carcoar. They have for a long time been strug gling to procure for themselves, a spiritual teacher, and now for the first time their efforts appear likely to be crowned with success. The Rev. Mr. Laughton conducted divine service at the Presby terian church, Bathurst, on Sunday last, and it was my good fortune to be present. He preached two sermons, one in the morning and another in the afternoon, and I express my opinion candidly in saying that a more effective style of preaching I never heard. His language was chaste, well selected, and beautiful. There was also a simplicity about it extremely winning1. The subjects . were well and logically arguedtand the ideas made so cigar as to be easily understood by the mealiest capacity. Mr. Laughton happily possesses many of the requi sites of a good and effective p...
