Police Incidents. TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 27 January 1849
TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1849. Before W. H. HOVELL, Esq. J.P. DnRUNKARDS.-JAMES M'CAnDLo, a ticket-of leave holder, who has lately been before the court on several occasions, appeared to answer a charge of drunkenness -preferred against him by the Chief Constable. Captain Hovell addressing the prisoner said, that he ought to recollect that he held only a temporary indulgence, and should therefore be careful that he did` nothing to forfeit it. The defendant had lately been before the court upon more than one charge, and he (Captain IIovell) would be justified in recommending the suspen sion of his ticket. He did not wish to deprive any man of liberty, and would therefore give defendant another chance. He was sentenced to pay a fine of 10s. with is. costs, or to go to the stocks for two hours. There was another charge against the de fendant, (for being an idle and disorderly cha racter,) but which Mr. Mr.M'Alister agreed to waive, as the prisoner promised to leave the town after satisfyin...
Original Poetry. TO [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 27 January 1849
TO. - If thou wilt promise to be ever true, T'hen will I seek with thee thy mountain home, Where we may dwell unheeded and forgot, Where the chill blast of care can never come. If thou wilt promise never to forsake This trusting heart, nor break thy faith with me, Then will I leave home, friends, and all things else That in this world I love, to roam vwith thee. Yes, I will trust thee, for in those dear eyes, Which fondly gaze on me, truth lies eushriu'd; For in the eye the language of the ireart Is writteu, 'tis the index of the.mind. I will be thine, alike In weal or woe, With love unchanging whatsoe'er thy lot,:.. Still will I cling to thee, earth's fairest spot To me a wilderness, where thou art not. And shouhl'st thou change, but never do I deem: That falsehood hidden in thy breast could lie, Still will I think thou lowest me the same As now, and in that thought contented die. Dearest, our hopes of happiness at last Will all be realized, the hours of pain 'T'hat we have known, ...

THE NEW GOLD COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 27 January 1849
THE NEW GOLD COUNTRY. MnIODERn discovery has presented no feature of greater attraction to the wild adventurer, as a field for enterprise, than the gold country of California. At the present moment the attention of all money-seeking classes is turned towards this new El Dorado, in the full certainty that it offers riches infinite to those who would exercise the commonest industry. The prospect of acquiring wealth with moderate labor, without the exercise of any mental acquirement, and unaided by the adjuncts of capital and connexion, is so inviting that we believe hundreds are sacraficing their legitimate means of living for a mere trifle, in order to take ship and try their fortunes in a strange country, amongst a strange race, and in an entirely new path of enterprise. To such who have finally resolved on the step, all we can say is, we wish them success in their adventure, but at the same time we must confess that it has been our opinion through life that the old system of gradua...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 27 January 1849
TO CORRESPONDENTS. VWE verily believe 'that all our correspondents have turned poetical. The " Free translation from Horace," and " The little French Gem," are respectfully declined. The verses com 2nencing " She Loves, but she Clings," &c, are not equal to the writer's other effusions. " The Lover's Temptation," is under consideration. " Young Henry Browne," is too much of the old Ballad School. ExcUSE offers us none at all; the party al ltded to is old enough to tnow better. If he is piqued we cannot help it. )AviDt is wholly wrong in his supposition. It is not worth our while to enlighten him. We are not in the habit of giving up our corres pondents names to every idle enqluirer. THE GOULBURN HERALD SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1849.

GUNDAGAI. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 27 January 1849
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT]. During the past week the weather here has been intensely hot, and still continues so; a bright blue sky by day, and the horizon by night indicating bush fires in various directions. Surely it is the duty of the constabulary, and should be of every private individual, to inform. against, and have punished, those who set the bush on fire, making the country a desert for miles round. Our wheat harvest is concluded, and we have abundant crops. At our last Court of Petty Sessions three inn. keepers here were surimoued for their :lamps being out at three o'clock -in::the mqrning ; two were fined £1 each, and:the third party proving one burner to be alight, this case was dismissed. We think it a great hardship that publicans should be fined for their lamps being out at so late an hour, and such proceedings are liable to much abuse; most certainly the informer should not receive a farthing of the fine, for obvious reasons ; we trust the law will soon be altered...

DREADFUL MURDER OF THREE PER, SONS AT CAMPBELLTOWN. A REPORT has reached this town by yesterday's mail of the perpetration of one of the most bru tal murders that has ever stained the annals of this colony since the days of Lynch. It appears that a man named James Richard son, who follows the occupation of a tailor, had been some time married to a widow-woman of the name of Lack, but owing to some quarrel which had arisen between them they had lived separate for the last month or six weeks. The woman was lately residing in a cottage with her daughter by her first husband, and two of her children. Upon Saturday morning last, between three and four o'clock, Richardson went to her house and finding the door fastened, succeeded in forcing it open with an axe. The inmates were fast asleep. Having proceeded towards the bed of the stepdaughter, he dashed her brains out with the axe by which he had forced an entrance into the dwelling. The wife awoke at the time, when the murderer deal: a b...

'Sf? S S. [FRno OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] It will be remembered that four years since Mr. Isaac Davis' house at Bunrrowa, was attacked by a number of men armed to the teeth, who bailed the family up and shot Mr. Davis; they then plundered the house and decamped. Mr. D. shortly expired through the wounds he re ceived, and although a very heavy reward was offered, there has been no possibility of bringing the parties tojustice. We have at present three men in custody on suspision of being concerned, but how far we are not able to say at present. We shall not lose sight of the matter should it be interesting; the examination. of' the pri soners to day was carried on in private, but will be resumed in open court to morrow. Mr. John Richard Hardy, near Yass, had one Mr. Barber, near Bowning, apprehended under a warrant, on suspicion.of stealing sheep. Mr. Allman appeared for the defendant.

IRELAND. O'BRIEN'S TRIAL. THE SPEECH FOR THE DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 3 February 1849
.IRELAND. O'BRIEN'S TRIAL. THE SPEECH FORI THE DEFENCE. Ox Thursday morning, Mr. Whiteside com menced his defence for the prisoners. The learned gentleman referred to the evidence with respect to the proceedings at Killeuaule and Ballingarry, and animadverted upon the conduct of the informer Dobbyn. Mr. Whiteside said ' I am now come to what appears the most im portant part of the whole case; I allude to the affair of the widow Cormack's; and let me say, I do sincerely believe that the whole cause of that affray arose from the anxiety of Captain Trant to effect the arrest of Smith O'Brien. The whole of this gallant gentleman's military glory appears to rest on the achievements of that day, and I am told that he drew up a despatch on the sub ject which might take its place beside Gurwood's despatches of the Duke of Wellington. I am even told he commenced it with a poetical phrase of a martial character- Who takes the foremost foeman's life, Himself shall conquer in the strife. (Loud ...

Inam happy to find that the measures of the Government during my administration have met with your approbation, and I beg to thank you for the kinduess which you are pleased to evince towards myself. I regret in common with yourselves, that cir cumstances should have arlsen to cause the re ,moval of the Circuit Courts and Quarter Sessions from the Town of Berrima, and that property, in .the Town and neighbourhood should, as you state, have been so much depreciated in conse .quence of that measure.

Original Poetry. VERSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 3 February 1849
VERSES. Give me the cup, where poisons hide Their deadliness 'Bieath rosy wine, 'Tis better far than Lethe's tide For poignant sorrows, such as mine. For I would live one moment more In dreams, which madden with delight, And pass ere yet the joy be o'er To dreary realms of endless night. Mine were no idle dreams of love, Consenting lips had sealed a vow; 'lTwas register'd in Heaven above, But where's the sacred promise now ? Gone, gone alas ! and I'm alone, Alone in this wide world of pain, The heart which throb'd to coldness grown Exulting that its free again ! Give me the cup, 'tis sweet to me, 'Tis sweeter far than woman's breath, And joy on earth denied to me, Will be forgot in peaceful death.
