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

THE PIRATE. Eighteen years ago, the ship I commanded was dancing over the waves on a mission of mercy. Laden by generous contributions of a New England city, she was bound to the Cape de Verds with bread for the fa mine stricken and dying. Brighter skies never gladdened the sailors neart man those which were bent over us ; pleasanter gales- never filled the sails of the seajour neyer than those which sped us to the haven where we should be ; ' and now may God have the ship in his holy keeping,' the, prayer which noncluried the old English bill of lading, was heard and granted, we felt, who trod on the deck of the stout craft, whose errand it was to succour the desti tute. We were all in high spirits, forward in the forecastle and aft in the cabin. Sai lors, who are often so hungry, liable at any moment to be put on short allowance, and compelled at times to fast entirely, know better than landsmen how to pity those whom famine threatens. Jack has ready sympathy for the man who has n...

Country News. O'CONNELL PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

Country News. [from our own correspondents.] O'CONNELL PLAINS. The compr.essed-hay movemout made by Mr. Jas. Walker has produced, and is producing still, the effects which I had anticipated, and of which I spoke in my last notices of O'Connell Plains. All the spare team, labour of the neighbourhood has been picked up, and a number of both horse and ouuocK teams oeiongmg to parties scattered.' over the district, as well as several down country car riers, have been employed. As many, it seems, as come are provided with loading, and despatched to Sydney, and still I perceive in your last issue an advertisement by Mr. Walker, for the conveying down twenty tons, half wheat, half hay. The whole affair has not only given us a new kind of station or encampment appearance — -with horses feeding, bullocks grazing, draymen cooking and yarning, — but we have pressers, weighers, and loaders as busy ns ' inkle-weavers,' and that al most constantly. Indeed we seem to have a new district trade crea...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 4 May 1850

PUBLIC MEETING. A meeting of the towus-people took place on .Tues day last, in accordance with public advertiscmcnl, to consider the necessary steps to bo taken, to com plete the approaches to the Vale Creek Bridge, and to repaii the streets of the town. As upon all occasions upon which the business of the public has to be discussed, tlxere was a very Lhin attendance. After a little desultory consulta tion, Mr. Syer was called to the chair, when he jpened the business by reading' the advertisement in last Saturday's Free Press, convening the meet ing, and alluding in general terms to the necessity of adopting some plan of effecting 'the principal object of the meeting, which was to complete the approaches to the bridge, and thus render it avail able for public use, and further of repairing the public thoroughfare of the town. He reflected upon the half and half way in which Government generally carried out anything connected with public works, very often leaving much to be done afte...

Port Philip. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

3?ort Pbillip. Grape Jelly. — We are inclined to think that housewives hero aro not generally aware that grapes not only irmke a most delightful jelly, but compared with other fruits, a very inexpensive one. Grape jelly is made in very largo quantities by Mr. Belperoud, and as he has been kind enough to fur nish us with the receipt, wo cannot do better tlian make it known. It is simply as follows : — Any quantity of grapes, tho weight of thoin fuvt nsccr tainod, /wo t-- bo placed ia a pa.n, ami allowed to boil by themselves, as in the manner of boiling any other fruit or jelly. The grapes ai'e then to be strained through a sieve or piece of muslin, when to every five pound of grapes which were boiled, are to bo added four pounds of sugar ; when the sugar and grapes (now only juice anil pulp) aro to bo boiled together, until the whole becomes of a nice consistency, after which cool, place in jars, cover over, and so forth. Tho jelly will be found superior to that made from most other...

THE STATE OF THE REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

THE STATE OF THE REVENUE. From the Times, January 5 Thb quarterly return of the revenue and ex penditure will be made up this evening, and, we are enable to say, will ba most satisfac tory. To the reasonable portion of the public it is unnecessary to observe that, ?yen with the greatest prosperity, and the freest consumption, we must not expect the Customs at once to fill up the vacuum caused by the repeal or reduction of- duties. Since January 5 of last year there have been two Buch events. On February 1 the last slid ing scale of duties on corn, which had eventually hrought rather more to the re venue than had been anticipated, gave place to a nominal duty. On July 5 the revenue Buffered a still more serious blow by the reduction of the sugar duties, which took ef fect from that day. As appears also from the returns of the Board of Trade, the im port of foreign Bugar which pays the highest duty has materially fallen off, while that of the East and West Indies has, greatly in creas...

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

Etsts-aets. Extraordinary Combat. — Captain HochFor.of the British and Irish Company's screw-vessel Rose, arrived at Dublin lately from London, and reported, having on his passage fnllen in with a whale of large dimensions, on a Sunday morning, at 2 o'clock, seven miles south-west of the Lizard. This monster of the deep was suffering severely at tho time in an encounter with two well-known ene mies of his tribe— a sword-fish and a thrasher. These formidable creatures generally go together through the waters, and are reputed to be joined in a league against the cetaceous animals. Captain Kochfort and tho crew saw the combat for about three-quarters of an hour ; but being obliged to continue their voyage homewards, they had to fore go the pleasure of witnessing the struggle to its * close, and taking in tow to Dublin the body of tha vanquished, for of his being eventually worsted in the affray there was no doubt whatever. Tho sword-fish was seen once driving his tremendous weapon into...

Misceilaneous Extracts. SUFFERINGS OF SEAMEN IN AN OPEN BOAT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

XVZisceiianeous Extracts. SUFFERINGS OF SEAMEN IN AN OPEN BOAT. We have received (says an American pa per) letters from Captain Hosmer, Lite master of the whaling barque Janet, of Westport, America, furnishing an account of the privations and sufferings of a boats' crew belonging to the Janet, comprising the captain and five others, which is almost without parallel in the annals of whale fishery. Having by accident got their boat upset, and in vain endeavoured (by lashing the boat to a whale they had turned up), to reach two other boats which started from the barque in company with them, in pur suit of a shoal of sperm whales, they had to remain in the water up to the arms for forty -eight hours, before they could free the boat. They had then been drifted aAvay, and knew not iu what direction to lo--k for help. Two of the party were seized with delirium for want of food and thirst, and the others from suffering were unable to ply the oars. For seven days the crew remained without fo...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We have Cape of Good Hope papers to the 10th March. They are principally filled with accounts of meetings of the Anti Convict Association and its branches, to congratulate themselves and their fellow - colonists on. the departure of the Neptune, and the success of their opposition to the landing of convicts. At Cape Town, and several of the towns in the interior, there had been general illuminations, and the 9th March was set apart as a day of thanks giving, when there was a service in most of the churches and chapels in the colony.— S. M.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The following interesting account of the loss of the Ocean Queen has been furnished by one of the crew who arrived at Hobarl Town in the Nautilus. The Ocean Queen, 800 tons, Captain Charles Jewell,: bound from London to Aden with coals, was de stroyed by fire in lat. 25° S., and long. 52 ° E- On. the 19th December a slight quantity of smoke was perceived by the crew to issue from the fore hatch. The circumstance was reported to the captain, who thought it was merely the dust from the coals forced up by the draft. No more notice was taken of it uutil the next morn ing at daylight, when we found the smoke had greatly increased. The carpenter called the captain and told him he thought the. coals were on fire, upon which the latter ordered all the provisions and lumber to be cleared out of the fore hold, and had long iron rods driven down through the coals to ascertain where the fire was. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon the rods were drawn up and found to be quite co...

INTERNATIONAL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

INTERNATIONAL TRADE. {From the Economist, Dec. 15.) Two correspondents have objected lo the 'foIlnwffTg statement which we mode on the 17th nil. — ' If a Manchester mn ufacturer has 1000 yards of cloth to exchange for food, and can exchange them advantage ously with the English market, for a quarter of wheat, he would certainly encourage more British industry, and purchase more British commodities than if he. were to ex change the 1000 yards of cotton cloth for one quarter of wheat with a French farmer. 1 his ia, we presume, so self evident, that no person would raise an argument against it.' ' That we have not till now taken any notice of the objections, is entirely accidental, and not from any disrespect to our corres pondents. As both proceed on the same ' principle we shall, we hope, at once satisfy both.: We are referred, by a Glasgow merchant, to Mr. M'Culloch's ' Principles of Political Economy,' p. 153. ed. of 1843, and to Mr. J. $. Mill's ' Principles of Political Economy,'...

FRANCE AND ALGIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

FHANCE AND ALGIERS. The supplement of the Monilaur Algerrin gives a detaih d account of the storming of Zaatcha, which hud previously been made known to us by telegraph. The pl;iee was entered by three breaches, but the de fenders fought from house to house ; not one of the Arabs asked for quarter. Bou zian and his sons, driven frona street to street, retired at hist with a few followers,. to his own house, which was blown up by the French with all its inmates. The de spatch confirms the fact, that not a soul in the place had been lefc to tell the tale. I say not one of the fanatical companions of ,Bouzine demanded quarter. All to the very last man allowed himself to be killed with arms in his hand. More than 800 bodies which covered the ground, sufficiently tes tify the fury of the struggle of which Zaat cha has been the theatre. Bouzian, his two sons, and the CherifFo Si-Mousa the old agitator of the Me'deah, who had some days previously thrown himself into the place, pursued from...

PUBLIC MEETING—MR. COBDEN'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

PUBLIC MEETING— -MR. COBDKn's OPINION. On the evening of Monday, last week, a public meeting was held in the metropolis, to protest against the continuance of capital punishment. The chairman, in the course of an excellent address, commented on the brutal and demoralizing scenes at the exe cution of the Mannings, protested aguinst the proposition of Mr. Charles Dickens in favour of private executions, and read a letter from Mr. Cobden, in which that gen tleman said — 'Take heed of the new dodge — private executions. It cuts away, how ever, three- fourths of the ground on which ' the Calcraft party' stands.' In another letter, addressed to the chairman, which ap peared in the Times of Wednesday, Mr. Coben says- — 'In now calling out for se cret hanging (which sounds to my ears very much like private assassination,) they have delivered themselves into your hands. Be assured that if it is to be no longer tolerated in the broad sunlight, the English people will have none of it.'

OPINION OF SIR FRANCIS HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

OPINION OV 8IR FRANCIS HEAD. Sir Francis Head has addressed a letter to the Times, commenting on the proposal of Mr. Dickens to have executions in private, to which he says he is opposed, for the fol lowing reaBons : — The merciful object of every punishment which the law inflicts, is not so much to re venge the past crime as to prevent its re currence. Now, Mrs. M canning's last mo ments clearly explain, or rather indis putably prove, the benefit which Eociety particularly derives from a public execu tion. She had courage enough— as she sat. smiling by .his side — to plan the murder of ' her .dearest friend ;' to. dig his grave ; to -prep'are vitriol and lime to burn his body; to blow his braius out ; to bury him in her own kitchen. She had resolution enough— -al- most before he was cold — to go to his odgtings to obtain his property. Her self possession before the police authorities of Edinburgh was, unexampled ; her hardness of heart, on her trial, as well as in prison, tovas mos...

SENEGAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

SENEGAL. The last intelligence from the French African set tlements at Senegal possesses a deep interest, not only for the commercialists of France, but for men of. enterprise here and every where. An expedition attempted by Captain Bouet, on the Grand Bassam River, has nroduced results which would appear fabulous had they not ac quired a great degree of authenticity from the source whence they emanated. On the 4th of March last, M. Bouet, then commanding the Serpent, succeeded in crossing1 the bar of the' river, which has acquired such an evil reputation, and his entrance was hailed by salvos of artillery from the fort and ships in the harbour. The dan gers of the exploring expedition were terrible. Of four officers, Captain A. Bouet lost three ; the fourth, with the surgeon, and a few white seamen, whom he succeeded in saving, returned to France in a condition truly deplorable. M. Bouet himself was attacked by illness no lesss than three times ; but his energy was not subdued by s...

North, Esq., J.P., coroner of the district, on the body of the infant child of Mr. Doyle's, which was found on the preceding morning, dead in its mother's arms. The child, it appeared, was about three weeks old, was very weakly from birth, and subject to crying fits, during which it would get quite livid iu the face. Dr. Bell certified that in his opinion death had resulted from natural causes, most probably some imperfection in the cir culating system, whereby the function of respira tion had been suspended, and the jury brought in a verdict accordingly. Queen's Birthday. — Wo believe it is the in tention of somo of Her Gracious Majesty's loyal subjects to get up a birthday dinner in this town ship, and that application will be made to hold it in the large room of the new Court House.
