THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH NAVIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 April 1850

THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH ? NAVIES. ., The Constitutionnel, has a .long -article on the subject of the French and English, navies.' After remarking on the controversy; which- has been so long going on in the English press on the subject, between Sir C. Napier. Mr. Cobden, and others, 'it says : — ? - ' England does not limit her ambition to the possession of a fleet capable of meeting all the eventualities of war and contending with - honour. Her colonial position, her commerce, and the duty of maintaining her high political influence in the world, render' it necessary for her to keep up an over whelming navy, which will not permit any power to conceive the possibility of con tending with her at sea. What have we seen just occur ? France bus been com pelled to interfere in Italy between the Pope and his. subjects. An army has been sent by her- to Civita Vecchia.

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

CALIFORNIA. fFrom the Launcestoii Examiner J The social state of affairs is not inviting, but murder is not so frequent as might be supposed, and is generally confined to the gaming houses. After dark many go armed, and on a recent occasion, in one of the ? ' hells,' an individual snapped his pistol at another ; then drew his bowie knife, cut his antagonist's throat, and coolly marched away. A man detected in robbery has one ear cut off; a second offence is visited by the amputation of the other : and should he draw in defence, or present fire arms, he is with little ceremony tied up by the neck. Gambling and drinking prevail to a fearful extent, and Sabbath desecration iB a marked feature of general conduct. In dress, too, there is little distinction ; the judge and the labourer both wear . blue shirts. The con veniences of life are scarcely attainable ; and it is not without difficulty wholesome ne cessaries are procured. The water h bad and dear, accommodation expensive, provi si...

GRAND BANQUET TO THE POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

GRAND BANQUET TO THE POTATO. (From Punch. ) THAThighly respected vegetable, the Potato, being now, it is hoped thoroughly reestab lished* in health, it was determined by a few leading members of the Vegetable Kiridom to offer a banquet to the worthy and con valescent root on his happy recovery. The arrangements of the dinner were on a scale of great liberality, and the guests included all the principal vegetables. The invita tion's had been carried out by an efficient corps of Scarlet Ruuners, and the Onion occupied the chair. He was supported on his right by the head of the Asparagus family, while Salad occupied a bowl at the other end of the table, and was dressed in his usual manner. The Potato, though just out of his bed, was looking remarkably well, and wore his jacket, there being nothing to mark his recent illness, except perhaps a little apparent blackness round one of his eyes. After the cloth had been removed, The Onion got up to propose as a toast, 'the Potato, their much...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. We bey to remind ' An Enquirer' that in our re port of the /Licensing Meeting, we gave the facts as they occurred as nearly as possillt. With' respect to any attempt, on our part, to make it appear that Mr. Macintosh was wrong in the position he took, and the Chief Constable right, we disclaim any intention of doing anything at variance with the facts of the case, which if .properly read, convey no such meaning. Mr. Macintosh grounded his argument upon Mr. ?Stephen's statement of Sullivan's account, who, as we stated, positively declared that after assorting the items, and adding those for grog togttluer, he found the sum total spent in liquor to be £11 6s. 9d. It was, therefore, no longer a question between Mr. Macintosh and the Chief Constable, but between the latter and Mr. Stephen. W.'s letter will appear in our next.

CORNISH SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

CORKISU SETTLEMENT. Fire. — On Wednesday last, at the Ccrnish Set tlement, two huts, recently built, and connected ?with the mine of Ricliard Lane, Esq., wore buvnt. It appears that the fire first passed through one of the slab-built chimneys to some loose grass that had fallen during the process of thatching, which immediately ignited and communicated with the roof ; and, notwithstanding very great exertion, in less than a, quarter of an hour both huts were re duced to ashes. The families who had just before removed into these huts have sustained serious loss by this disaster ; most of their clothes and stores having been burnt. Had tho fire happened during the night no doubt a loss of life would have been the result. An inlant of Mr. Thackcr's was rescued whilst the fire was falling on the bed where it lay asleep. We understand the misfortune of these famili6s, (ono of seven, and the other of four children) has excited tho commisseration of the settlers of our neighbourhood, and n...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

Colonial Extracts. Progress ov Melbourne:. — The valua tors, appointed by the Corporation of Mel bourne, have just completed their labourB, and the result shews a clear increase of about one thousand houses in the city during the last ten or eleven months. Ttie gross returns show the following number or house3 in the several wards of the city, viz. — Gipps Ward ? 1828 La Trobe Ward ? S82 . Lonsdale Ward ? 780 Hourke Ward ? 740 Total ? 4230 Of this number, however, fifty or sixty are re-valuations, in consequence of additions marie since the fixing of the last assessment, about ten or eleven months ago. The in crease in the valuation of the city during the year, from new and improved buildings alone, is not less than £30,000, which will give an addition to the corporation revenue of something like £1500 per annui®. At the lowest computation, the population of the city does not fall far short of '21,000 souls, and the general belief is, that it amounts to close upon 25,000. — Argus. T...

CROWN LANDS SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

CROWN LANDS SALE. Since the appearance of our article upon this subject, we learn that the office of the Sur veyor-General haB been inundated with let ters from parties complaining of their rented lands being advertised for sale, and requir ing an explanation, io till sucri applicants a circular has been addressed, informing them that the mistake ' inadvertently' oc curred. The only comment that need be made upon the matter is, that the inadvert ence appears to have been very extensive in its operations, and that the term, used as an excuse, is much too gentle in its expression. Had the. (surveyor-General been candid, he would have beeu under the necessity of apologising for the bungling stupidity of some of his clerks. The mistake has already occasioned much trouble and inconvenience to parties holding the lands, and others wishiug to rent them. It is satisfactory, however, to know that a note addressed to the Surveyor-General by aggrieved indivi duals occupying the sections advert...
