Driginal Correspondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

Oi'tstwttl (£m'c«3gmtffeiT«, To the Editor of The Baxuurst Free Press. Sir, — I suppose it is pretty generally be lieved, that a government cannot be con ducted without a revenue, and a revenue cannot be collected without taxation ; and I suppose there are feAv right-minded people that would grudge a moderate taxation for the benefits of an efficient government ; yet some taxes in themselves, owing to the ef fect of their operation, are particularly ob jectionable. Such is the postage on news papers ; because, it is to be feared, any benefit the Colonial Treasury may derive from the ' tax on knowledge' will be a very meagre compensation for the improvement it is likely to retard. If the colonial reve nue cannot afford the reduction of this tax, can it not be transferred to some other ar ticle ? If our honorable, wise law-makers would add the amount of this item to the duty on spirits, wines, &c, they would con fer a great benefit on the people generally, and on our class par...

EASTERN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

EASTERN EUROPE. (From the Sout7i Australian Register.) The news via Singapore is to the 27th December from Malta, and the 21st from Smyrna. It seems that Russia is negociating with Turkey. The Czar refused to do so while the British fleet remained within the castles of the Dardanelles. In compliance with his wish, all foreign ships retired. The Eng lish fleet was reported at Malta as having been seen off Myteline, proceeding towards Adrienetum. It was likely should nothing of sufficient importance transpire to change its destination, that it would shortly return to Malta. Russia still refused to withdraw her army from Wallachia, claiming her right to keep it there, and sending mope troops daily. War was expected on this point, and Mur teb Pacha, late Bern, who hud just reviewed 120,000 troops at Shoulraa, expressed him self confidentiy as to their power to cope with the Russians. The Russian and Austrian ambassadors were in daily communication with the Porte. The Sultan himself had ...

REMINISCENCES OF A TRAVELLER. BY AVILLIAM JT. T/EGGEDT, M. A. BRITISH AMERICA.— C continued J No. III. While; i' Sussex Vale, Ndw Brunswick, at a lovely retreat of the muses, called Lans uale Cottage, I made acquaintance, sans ceremonie, Avith a giant of the bear species. It Avas a sultry night in summer, and I had left the windows of my dormitory open, little anticipating Avhat was oestmeu to disturb my repose. About midnight I Avas aroused from my pleasant dreams by the frantic bellowings of scores of cattle, Avhich seemed to announce the sudden proximity of something not very agreeable to the occupants of a neighbouring cow yafd. Is had heard Avondrous tales of Avolves, and bears, and aboriginal devils,* * A solitary and fearfully ferocious animal known by the name of Indian Devil.

' The following extraordinary statement, published in the Sydney Morning Herald of Wednesday week, we give place to in our columns, in the hope that it may attract the notice of his Excellency, who, we are as sured, rarely vouchsaies perusal to the uaiiy journal in which it appeared.

THE BATHURST BURR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

THE BATHURST BURR. It is somewhat singular and unaccountable that people should constantly require din ning into their ears, the existence of evils which, in one way or another, affect their ral and material welfare, whoee removal would require only a little one ness of purpose, and joint exertion. Those evils vrhich are remote or secret in their opera tion, are even in highly civilised commu nities, very apt to be overlooked, until, by the magnitude of their effects, they become intolerable, and their pressure stimulates to exertion those upon whom that pressure rests. It is true, the sources of many evils are traceable to a combination of causes, and are so far hidden beneath the surface of things — are so far intermingled with human passions and human prejudices, that it re quires the power and penetration of a re condite philosophy to unravel and analyse them. But some there are which spring from purely physical causes, are obvious to the universal faculties of mortal perception...

THE BATHURST TREE PRESS. SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1850. " MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." IMMIGRATION OF NEEDLEWOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

THE B A Tit U LIST TREE PRKSS. SATURDAY/MAY 4, 1S50. ' SIAONA EST VEKITAS ET PIMSVALEBIT.' IMMIGRATION OF NEEDLEWOMEN. At home, as with ua, the benevolent scheme of Mr. Sidney Herbert for bettering the condition of the metropolitan needlewomen, has its advocates and its opponents, but judging by the tone and statements of the English Press, the latter are by far the Jeast numerous. 1 he supporters oi the | scheme, we think, with very sound judgment base their arguments and proposals upon three great facts,- — first, the inequality of the sexes in Great Britain, by the preponder ance of females over males ; second the in equality of the sexea in the colony by the excess of the males over females ; third, the misery and destitution of the class, whose condition it is theit object to amelio rate, by forwarding a large number of these victims of poverty and severe toil to a land where the means of subsistence are more easily attainable. Mr. Sidney Herbert and his coadjutors have taken a...

ColoNial Extracts. PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

Colonial Extracts. PORT PHILLIP. The Hero and the- Thalia had arrived at Mel bourne from London, and the Catherine from Leith, none later than the 16th December. The Thalia brought three passengers, and the other two none. Capture of' one of the Mail Robbers. — Intelligence has been received of the capture of one of these ruffians. It appears that after committing the robbeiy, they purposely drowned one of the horses and tied up the other, and got a lift in a dray as far'as Middlemass's public-house (about half way between Seymour and. the Ovens.) Two of the Albury police followed, fortunately hit on the right track, and came up with the fellows sitting on a log. On the police appearing, the robbers left their fire-arms and £2 on the log and attompted to bolt, but one of them being lame was soon run down, while his chum, having the foot of the other constable, got clear off. The captured vagabond immediately made a clean breast of it, saying they intended to rob the down mail from S...

THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

T HE WOOL MARKET. The annual circular of Messrs. Hughes''and Ro nald, wool-brokers, Liverpool, reports most favour ably of the state and prospects of the wool trade. It directs particular attention to the great increase in the export of wools, and anticipates that this country will eventually become the chief mart for that article. On the imports, foreign and colonial, Messrs. Hughes and Ronald report as follows :— ' Australian and Cape of Good Hope.— . The receipts from theso colonies have been rather large, and almost entirely to London. The result of the public sales during the year, though not unremunerating to the importers, has not been so satisfactory as could have been desired, taking into consideration our improved prospects ; but when we consider the undue quantity brought for ward at one series, and that upwards of three fourths of the whole clip has been disposed of in less than six months, it must be regarded as a strong testimony of the healthy state of trade.

MONEY AND COMMERCIAL NEWS (From the Sun, January 5.) City, Quarter to Three.

The Bank of England weekly return to the 29th ultimo is -f a very different character to some of its predecessors. The circulation was larger, owing to the increased advances upon other secu rities, or more probably the purchases of stock by the bank, and this has likewise influenced tho amount of the reserve of unemployed notes . The bullion is less, either from the like cause or .from exports to the Continent, but we yet expect a further augmentation. The public deposits in- I creased again.
