Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the BATHURST FREE PRESS . Summer Hill Mine. May 8th, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

4Bvi$inal (Irmregnmtdfercce, To the Editor of the BATiiuasT Fjiee Press. Summer Hill Mine, May 8th, 1850. Sir, — In your last week's issue, under the head of Mining Intelligence, Summer Hill Mine, your ob servations with reference to Captain Clymo's visit of inspection to this mine contain a few errors of some importance, and to which I deem it necessary to advert and correct, in order to remove any erro neous impression that may probably arise for want of contradiction, you will therefore oblige me by giving insertion to the present letter in your forth coming paper. You state, by authority, that ' Captain Clymo discovered a considerable quantity of copper pyrites in a lode 15 fathoms in length, and at the bottom/ of Captain Whitford's shaft there is a lode 5 feet wide, the greater proportion of which is copper pyrites.' I beg to state that these discoveries were made months before Captain Clymo's visit to the mine, and were well known to all parties interested, from my reports whi...

THE BATHURST YREE PRESS. -SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1850. ''SIAONA EST VEKITAS ET PR.EVALEBIT.' DR. LANG AND REPUBLICANISM. The dead calm of our political atmosphere has latterly been roused into motion and activity by the appearance of that brilliant luminary — Dr. Lang —who. in the course of his ubiquity, has deigned to visit our Queen of the South, to tells us that we are all wrong. He has laboured and sweated to convince us that we are an ill-used, mis governed, and an oppressed people, and that nothing short of an absolute moral re bellion — of a repudiation of our allegiance to the mother-country, its government and crowned head, and the substitution in their place, of republicanism — will effect a re moval of our grievances and wrongs. After a futile attempt first to coax, and after wards to dragoon Earl Grey and the British Government into the adoption of some of the children of his conception, he indig nantly turns tail, shakes the dust off his» feet, and after uttering a violent p...

PUBLIC EXECUTIONS. ANOTHER LETTER FROM MR. CHARLES DICKENS. . [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 11 May 1850

PUBLIC EXECUTIONS. ANOTHER LETTER FROM MR, CHARLES DICKENS. Mr. Dickens has written another letter to the Times, in which he states his views more at length on the subject of public ex ecutions. 'My position/* he says, 'in reference to the demoralising nature of pub lic executions are—First, that they chiefly attract as spectators the lowest, the most depraved, the most abandoned of mankind ; in whom they inspire no. wholesome, emo tion^ whatever. Secondly, that the public infliction of. a violent death is not a salutary spectacle for any class of people ; but that it is in the. nature of things that on the class by whom it is generally witnessed it should have a debasing and hardening influence. On the first head I-raust appeal again to my own. experience, of] the execution of last Tuesday morning ; to/all the evidence that has ever been taken on the subject, shewing' that executions^ have been the ?^mgmjml sight of convicts \;of all descriptio^^^^^H ? also on the second head refer...

A Shipwreck on the Coast of Africa horrible Recital. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

A Shipwreck on the Coast of Africa SSorrible Recital. The Messager du Mudi,oi the 30th of Oc tober, relates the following account of the shipwreck of the brig La Lucie, of Agde, on the coast of Africa. The narrator is ~one of the three men who were the heroes of this lamentable story : — 'On the 27th of June last, the new po lacca brig Lucie, of 215 tons burden, and manned by a crew of eight persons, in cluding the captain, M. V. Lavialle, left the port of Algiers in ballast, with beau tiful weather, bound forCoreaand Gambia, where a cargo of arachides awaited it, des tined for Marseilles. On the 13th, at ten o'clock p.m., the weather was dreadful ; the sea threatened to swallow up the vessel, and a tremendous leak was soon sprung. Several manoeuvres to caulk the seams were tried in vain ; the two boats used in these operations were hurled against the side of the brig, and several of the crew narrowly escaped drowning. Exhausted by the fa tigue they resolved to await the dawn. When ...

Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

Extracts. Penny Banks. — Some time ago a society was formed in Greenock under the title of the ' Penny Bank,' The object of this institution was 'to create and foster habits of regularity and frugal economy,' among the working classes, by affording an opportunity for the weekly and daily deposits of the smallest sums of money, repayable at the end of every year. The bank at Greenock is open every evening for the reception of sums from Id. to Is., and the money is daily deposited in thu Savings' Bank in the name of five responsible trustees. During the first half year of its exist ence no less a, sum than £1106 17s. 4d. was col lected from 5,000 depositors in a populationot 40,000 people, and since then the' deposits have continued to increase. At Hull a similar institu tion has been set on foot, and other towns, both ia Scotland and England, are likely to copy the ex ample so laudable and happily set by Greenock.

Thl hearty reception accorded tit Edin burgh to Sir Joshua Walraaley and Mr. George Thompson, in their character of re presentatives of the National Parliamentary and Financial Reform Association, is of bad augury for anti-rerormers and sham re formers. Edinburgh was the last strong ' hold of a whiggery so very moderate as to | be with difficulty distinguishable from Eng | lish toryisra. An immense majority of the ; citizens put themselves in the leading strings i of the Parliament House, and the learned I plaudits of that court of Themis jobbed \ them with impunity.

AN INGENIOUS SCOUNDREL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

AN INGENIOUS SCOUNDREL. (From the New York Past.) We were once coming over the railroad from Washington city to Baltimore when we observed a peculiar sort of man sitting hard by, — a tall, slim good-natured fellow, but one who somehow seemed to bear the impress of a, person who lived by his wits written on his face. A friend who was with me answered my inquiry us to who he was, and at the same time asked nip to keep between the object of my notice and himself, lest he should could over to our seat, as my companion said he knew him, but did not wish to recognise him there. ' That is Beau H.' said he, ' a man that is universally known in Washington as one of the most accom plished fellows in the city, always ready to borrow of, or drink with you. He never has any money, however, and I am curious to know how he will get over the road without paying, for he will surely do it some way.' ' Probably he has got a ticket : borrowed the money to buy it with, or something of that sort,' said I...

NEWSPAPER CANVASSING IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

NEWSPAPER CANVASSING IN AMERICA. (From the Emigrant.) In the year '36 we published a simily-weekly literary journal in the city of Detroit, and at the commencement of our career ' out thar' we em ployed a local travelling agent, one John D-^ — , a fellow of infinite tact in business, and ordinarily one of the merriest, happiest, best-natured bipeds we ever met with. John had a way of obtaining subscribers, however, peculiarly his own, and his success was proverbial. If lie undertook to get a man's name and subscription money, he got it, — : there was no dodging the issue where he had re solved upon the thing. John was a large, powerful man, standing six feet three in his socks, and he feared nothing in the performance of his duty. At times, when a resort to the tricks of his trade became necessary, ? he ' was at home,' and his mimicry, smiling coun tenance, and capital address made him scores of friends, almost at first sight. But John occa sionally met a tough customer. ' You call ...

MORALS OF THE BAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

MORALS OF THE BAR. (From the Spectator.) Absolute truth may be beyond the reach of the best tribunal ; proximate truth 19 the very nbj-nct of any judicial tribunal, and to that end the different parties engaged should on-onerate according to the set division of employments. It follows, that a barrister engaged on one side is not bound to labour for the full truth, as he may leave 'the other side' to deal with one half of the data, he doing the best he can for the other half ; but also it follows, that he should not strive to establish falsehood. Worked out, that proposition alone would settle the re vived question respecting the conduct of Mr. Phillips at the trial of Courvoisier. But we touch upon the controversy with some distase, because we do not believe that the class most generally concerned, that of the bar lawyers, is resolutely bent on doing what is right. We say it with regret, and should rejoice to encounter satisfactory dis 'proof. But the charge which has been made agai...
