CHEAP POSTAGE BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND THE WHOLE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

CHEAP POSTAGE BETWEEN GREAT BRI TAIN AND THE WHOLE WORLD. {from the Daily News.J ? The penny postage is, perhaps, the greatest im provement that has taken place of late years in any of the public establishments of this country, and the social and national advantages from that reform cannot be over-estimated. We consider that the post-office ought never to have been, and ought not to be, a source of reve nue to this or to any state, as the greater the faci lities to intercommunication between man and man and kingdom and kingdom that are afforded by the post-office establishments, they are only an in crease, or a means of an increase of that social na tional improvement and prosperity which should be the object of all good governments. The penny postage of letters has been so gene rally approved of, not only by all classes of persons in this country, but also by many foreign govern ments, that the example of England is now followed in the United States of America, and in several ? sta...

There were upvrarda of ninety cases upen the list for adjudication, bat as usual, a great proportion were settled out of Court. Of the remainder, there were not many possessed of anv interest. We selected a few for publication. JENNINGS V. VaNIC. The defendant in this case was sued for £S 12s. 6d. for a pair of wheels of large size, intended for a timber carriage. It ap peared by the evidence of the defendant that an order for the wheels was given to a third person, who was, at the time, partner to the plaintiff, but has since left him. Mr. Wade son on the part of the defendant submitted that the case must fall to the ground from two causes — first because there was no de livery, and secondly because he had sued in his own name, instead of the name of the firm, The plaintiff swore that the wheels were ordered in his presence, that the de fendant picked out the axle, and t...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS SMALL DEBTS' COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

GBviQinal &avve&paii#eiTcet To the Editor of The Bathurst Free Press SMALL DEBTS' COURT. The working of this Court has occasioned much and repeated discussion, but never have I heard an opinion in its faTor. Suiters are ever dissatisfied and spectators constantly astonishod by its deci sions ' according to equity and good conscience,' but in direct violation of law. Is it not surprising that men of any education can so stultify themselves, as publicly to avow from their judicial seats, when an Act of Parliament is placed before them, that they do not understand the law and will give judgments! directly contrary to express enactment, alledging as a reason, that theirs is not a Court of Law, but a ' Court of Equity and good conscience' ? -Certainly, if violation, of the laws be equity, and judgment contrary to evidence,, good- conscience, its judges have given their court a right to such a title. C;m any man of the meanest understanding be lieve that any court ia compe...

Evkrt succeeding Court for the recovery of small debts strengthens the conviction we have long entertained that a change in its constitution is highly requisite. It is not that the sums sued for a re trifling in amount, that the transactions with which they are connected are unimportant in their charac ter, or that the principles involved in those transactions are to lose any of their effi cacy or substantiality. To the poor man the £5 transaction is of as much consequence as one of £50 ie to his wealthier neighbour, and where such a transaction becomes a subject of litigation, it is necessary that a decision either pro or contra should, at all events, be in accordance with the acknow ledged principles of jurisprudence. It is true it very often happens that their Wor ships are, from the nature of the case, con ?trained rather to employ their common sense in considering the pr...

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

Stocal Intelligence. Anonymous Cohhespond'ence. — We cannot for bear a smile at the production of ' An Ignorant Female,' which found a place in our last, nor leave unexpre3sed our opinion of the bad taste which could lead one of nature's '-fair creation' into u newspaper controversy. But not only is that bad taste displayed in this manner, it is equally shown in the light and frivolous mode in which her re ply is conducted. 'An Ignorant Female' forgets her wroncrs in her penchant for criticism, and cares leas for the propriety of eur remarks than the purity of our English. We could never, for a moment, allow it to be supposed that we were so deficient in gallantry, as to enter the lists of disputation upon points of verbal criticism with 'An Ignorant Female.' From her own confession, we do not hold her responsible for errors both in fact, compo sition, and criticism with which lu-r reply abounds. We would take this opportunity of informing her that she has good grounds of action aga...

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

SHEEP FARMING. A correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald, who writes from Gundagai, draws the attention of the readers of that journal to a new and very serious enemy to sheep farming, which he says is spreading- in that vicinity. The writer says — ' I allude to the plant or shrub commonly known as ' the Bathurst Burr.' What its botanical name may be, I am not aware, but it probably belongs to the numerous family of spurgeworts, (Euphori- biaceæ), and I am induced to believe that it is not a native of the colony, but that it has been intro- duced from South America. It is said only to have appeared within the last two years. If prompt measures be taken it could soon be prevented from spreading. I observed in the Herald some littla time since, that the Government had laid out a | sum of money in destroying the Scotch thistle ia I the vicinity of Picton. Would they not extend a I like boon to us in the present case if the matter I was represented to the proper authorities P Is it n...

WILFUL MURDER. OF A NEW BORN INFANT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 27 April 1850

WILFUL MURDER. OF A NEW BORN INFANT. Murder is at all times, and under any cir cumstances, an awful subject of contempla tion, but it is sometimes accompanied by incidents and features which increase to a very great extent, the horror and atrocity of this most revolting of human crimes. The heart sickens at the relation of details aris ing out of its perpetration, and the brain turns giddy, and is for a time, almost inca pable of realising the possibility that any human being, created with sympathies, feel ings, and affections (for who is completely destitute ?) can so far neutralise their   operation, as to let loose the fiendish and demoniac spirit of vengeance which can often be satiated only by the spilling of hu man blood. The murderer thus actuated must, to the end of time, be an object of loathing and abhorrence, despite all the sentimental ities which a humanitarian age may lavish   upon him. Vengeance, however, has its causes and incitements, its p...
