GOLD!—MORE GOLD!! [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 February 1849

GOLD !-MORE GOLD !! ONE of the most important discoveries that ever took place in any settlement of tile British Crown has been made in Port Plillip within the last few weeks. Whether the story is exaggerated as the Melbourne Morning Herald would have the public to believe, or whether the account published in the Alrgus is cor rect, there can be no doubt that an ex tensive gold-mine has been discovered in lthe Southern District. The account given by the latter journal, although in some respects vague, is sufficiently cir cuinmsantial to stamp it with appearance of truth, and we do not believe that a respectable newspaper would lend its columns to the purpose of promulgating a hoax whiIch would be so easy of detec tion, and which would undoubtedly in jure the character of the journal in a most material point. What will be the consequence of this discovery can be a matter only of con jecture; that it will permanently benefit that part of New South Wales there can be no doubt, and we d...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 February 1849

CANTOx.-As there is no part of the world so densely populated as Chinn, so there is no part of the empire so densely populated as Canton. The streets are exceedingly narrow and in many places hardly sufficient to allow the crowded po pulation to pass. There are no wheel carriages in use. The passengers walking in town are constantlay jostled by the chair-bearers of the Mandarins, or wealthy merchants. Recovered from such a shock, a coolee or porter, bearing a bulen, knocks him against the wall, with a sort of a grunt, while he his shuffled in an opposite direction by a second. Peculiarly curious to English eyes are the number and variety of live stock which are exposed for sale in the narrow streets-puppy dogs yelping in bamboo cages, kittens mewing, rats squeaking, fowls chuckling, ducks quacking, geese cackling and pigs grunt ing, fish swimming, and earth.worms, slugs, &c., &c., variously disposed, are exhibited in tubs and earthen pans. A barber close by twangs hi...

INDECENT ASSAULTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 10 February 1849

INDECENT ASSAULTS. ALTHOUGH there were few prisoners tried at the Circuit Court which has just closed, we regret to state that amongst those few there were three charged with indecent assaults on the persons of children of tender years. As this crime, so demoralizing in its nature, appears to be greatly on the in- crease, and as the evidence required to procure a conviction is so difficult to be obtained, we solemnly entreat the inter- ference of the Legislature for its sup- pression, confident that when Mercy in- terposes in behalf of the criminal, she but strengthens the ways of the vicious, and further exposes the helpless and in- nocent to the brutal passions of the most depraved classes of society. The children of the humbler orders are peculiarly exposed to this offence; and yet of all others are the least pro- tected by the law. We are well aware that the law in principle makes no dis- tinction of persons, but in reality—in effect--it does; for many are the instances when thr...

THE GOLD MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 February 1849

THE GOLD MIINE. O:N Saturday morning, several persons left town for the scene of treasure at the Pyrenees, in cticiia iarts, having with them a good supply of ,roivisiuns and some gallons of brandy-some however in their anxiety to get to the place, got drunk and returned to Melbournc, but resumed their journey yesterday morning. We under stand tllat Sergeant Walshse and four troopers, of the native police started for the Pyrenees on Friday morning, and Chief Constable Brodie proceeds thither to day, but by whose orders we cannot say, as His Honor the Superintendent is absent in the Portland District. In the mean time large lumps of gold have found their way to town, two of them weighing twenty-two anti twenty-four ounces each, the former in the pos session of Mr. Duchene, and the latter belong ing to Mr. Brentani, and which he values at eighty pounds. With regard to the shepherd boy the original discoverer, his whereabouts is involved in ntystery. It is rumoured that he proceeded to...

Another fatal case of cholera had occurred at Hull on the 14lth October, on board a Danish vessel lately arrived there from Odessa. On board the Justiiia, convict-ship, in the Thames, six deaths from Asiatic cholera had occurred, while on board the Warrior, convict-ship, no symptoms of cholera had appeared, and ttlis ex emption haviug led to fltrther inquiry, and a comparison of the circumstances, it was found tlhat the convicts chiefly attacked on board the Justitia were those quartered on the after part of the lower deck, on the starboard side, which part of the ship was exactly opposite the mouth of a sew...

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT]. The weather still continues the same as when 1 last wrote; a shower of rain would be a luxury. On Wednesday last, - Smith, Esq., or Mfingay, took the oaths and seat as Magistrate. R. P. Jenkins, Esq., J.P., swore him in by com mission. The persons who were fined by the Bench on the information of the Government some time since, and ordered to remove in fourteen days from the Crown Lands they occupied without purchase, have had their fines returned by order of the Crown, and permission granted to them to return and re-construct their huts, at least the two who complied with tlie decision of the Bench by taking their places down; the third party, holding a wine and beer license, would not, and was forcibly dispossessed in due form by the Commissioner of the District, the Chief Constable, and his assistants UNDER ARMnS. After all this parade, sixteen days afterwards, the fines were returned, and the persons are told they can again take possession. We there...

Original Poetry. TO [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 February 1849

TO "' All that's bright must fade."--BYno. Oh ! come to me, And bring with thee The sunny smiles of former years, If smiles so bright Can lend their light, To cheer a brow long used to tears. I will not let One fond regret, One gloomy thought our meeting chill, But for thy sake I'll strive to make This alter'd cheek look cheerful still. But if the gloom Of life is come, If smiles have now forsaken thee, Then let not pride Attempt to hide t.he dreary change-but come to me. If thou art gay, 1 will not say * One gloomy word to caust a tear, If thou art sad, I'll wish I had * A brighter home for one so clear. Then come to me, Our theme shall be The friends we love, not those we mourn, WVe'll not destroy A present joy Lamenting those that ne'er return. The ardent rays Of early days, A childhood's blooto we ne'er can see, But days of bright And pure delight MIay be in store-then come to me.

EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 February 1849

EMIGRATION. OF all the suggestions on the subject of Emigration which have been from time to time brought under the consideration of the public, we have always opposed those that included the deportation to these shores of the mere pauper population of the Uniited Kingdom. We can conceive nothing more wild, more preposterous, more dangerous to the colony, or more unsatisfactory to the English people, thIan such a scheme would necessarily be. While it would not alleviate the pressing wants of the people at home, it would sow the seeds of future mis-government, anarchy, and poverty in New South Wales. Pauperism-excluding the cases of its professional adoption-is the sign of de fective employment. Want of employ ment denotes either the want of capital or the want of a remunerative investment of it. People in England rho not libour under tile former grievance, for it is at' lirmed with unhesitating confidene by persons who are well acquainted with the subject, that the aggregate of capi...

Mr. Murray, who was employed by Mechan, endeavoured to malte it appear by quoling largely from Blackatone's Commentaries and other works of authority, that the defendant was liable for the animals so lots; but was stopped by the chairman, who said, that in New South Wales no person who took in horses or cattle to grass in a paddock was answerable for them, unless it could be shown that they were lost through negligence.-Verdict for defendant.

What have I undergone all this tossing and bumping for over the most horrible roads I ever met with out of Connaught ? To see your green downs, and enjoy for a fortnight the beautiful summer climate of which you bragged so much. Green downs i I can see nothing but crisp and foxy-colored grass peeping through dust, which is perpetually gyrating in the atmosphere, and advancing at the rate of three miles an hour to the horror of every well-dressed peripatetic; and those who escape this nuisance, are sure to be enveloped in clouds of sharp grit which pene Irate every orifice in...

AN oDn LORD cF QEEN ANNE'S TseE.--Lord Wharucliffc, in his new extended edition of the works of Lady Mary Wortley Moutagu, gives the following amusing anecdotes of a noble lord of the early part of last century:--Mary Howe, daughter of Lord Viscount Howe, married to Thomas, VIIIth Earl of Pembroke, f125, the Lord Pembroke who collected the statues and medals at Wilton, and whose knowledge of clas sical antiquity might therefore make his praise flattering to Lady Mary Wortley. He had been a principal member of the whig administrations under King William and Queen Anne, and the last person who held the office of Lord High Admiral; but now being old and a great hu morist, distinguishing himself chiefly by odd whims and peculiarities, one of which was a fixed resolution not to believe that any thing he disliked, ever did rr could happen.

To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 February 1849

To the Editor of the Goulbura Herald. Ssa,--The Governor's visit appears to have caused some of your correspondents considerable dissatisfaction. My opinion is that it is only men of little minds that look on the act olpaying homage to any man as a satisfactory one, and whyyour correspondents should fret themselves about Hi.s Excellency having been pleased to honor Captain Rossi with a visit, I retally cannot say, without they fall under the class of little men. I do not feel my dignity offended in the least: -the Governor is but a mans-and so long as my fellow-townsmen are honest, I do not see that they are in any respect his inferiors. Pope has said, " an honest man's the noblest work of God." This saying has become so hackneyed, that it is mot without some hesitation I use it, still it is so expressive, that I cannot select a better. I am too independent to wish for the oppor tunity of licking the dust of' any maon's feet; and when I see the local magistracy kissing the Go vernor...

IMPROMPTU ON the magnanimous Innkeeper who advertised in the "Goulburn Herald" an intention of lowering the prices of his grog-stuff. " Charley, you're my darling."--OLo Soea. Let rampant, would-be patriots bleat, And mouth it in Macquarie-street, While Sydney's sapient snobs, Who play such pranks in York-street hall, For " public good" rant, rave, and brawl, But still look out for jobs. Let puffing quacks and auctioneers Bamboozle greenhorns' eyes and eare With promises, all sham; I just regard such mountebanks. Like lotteries based on broken banks, Not worth a tinker's dt-n. Give me that glorious patriot Who cheapest fills my glass or pot, When I get on the spree ; Not Curtius, when the gulf he braved, And by his death old Rome was saved, Should more exalted be. "Pro bone publico" some cry, Whilst echo answers ' all my eye," And tleep-uns heedless pass; But what delight 'twill give, to know A right" Pro bone publico" I-Ias fixed its stand in Yass. Come, brother lushingtons, approa...
