GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 February 1849
GOLD. This metal is found in a native state, mixed with a little silver or copper. Its color is various shades of yellow ; its forms are massive, ramose, and chrystallized iu cubes and octahedra. The veins of gold are confined to primitive countries, but large quantities of this metal are collected in alluvial soils and in the beds of certain rivers, more especially those of the west coast of Africa and of Peru, Brazil, and Mexico. Iu Europe, the streams of Hungary and Transylvania have afforded a respectable quantity of gold;it has been found also in the Rhine, the Rhone, and tbe Danube. Small quantities have been col lected in Cornwall, and in the county of Wicklow in Irelantd.--Brande. To obtain it ill a state of purity, standard gold must be dissolved in nitro-muriatic acid; one part by weight of thle metal to three of the acid; the solution must be evaporated to dryness by a gentle heat, the dry mass re-dissolved in distilled water, and a solution then added to it of green sulp...
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 Goulburn Herald. SIs,--Since the publication of your useful paper the scattered population of this district have been somewhat relieved from dull monotony; but both the pleasure it communicates and the instruction it conveys are materially lessened by the irregularity of its transmission, there being no postal comniinication between this dlistrict.and either Goulburn or Yass. We are therefore solely dependent upon a chance tra veller, or drag, for the receipt of either news papers or letters. This grievance which the inhabitants have hitherto patiently endured is, Itowever, likely to be in some measure removed. The change will be agreeable to the people as profitable to you, for the circulation of the "Herald" will by such means be materially en creased. There is now being erected at Walla Walla by Mr. William Smith, a building of con siderable dimensions, which he intends to com plete and fit up in the first style for an inn. There will certainly be room enough...

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 February 1849
LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. BY the arrival at Sydney of the Walter Mourrice, from Plymouth the 25th of October, with immigrants, we are placed in possession of London papers to the day previous. All was quiet in England, and no events of interest are recorded in the various journals which have come to hand. Ministers were enjoying them selves at their country seats after the fa tigues of the Session. A petition for a commutation of O'Biien's sentence, signed by twenty five thousand persons, had been pre sented to Lord Clarendon by tie Lora Mayor of Dublin. His Excellency's re ply was, that until the Special Commis sion was closed, lie could say no more than that every consideration would be given to the recommendation of the Jury. The State Trials were proceeding; M'Manus, O'Donohue, and Meagher, had been found guilty of high treason, with a recommendation to mercy from the several Juries. Several cases of cholera had occurred, but in a mild form, and very few deaths had taken place. A rep...

Enlargement OF THE PAPER. Q?UR Subscribers and the Pub j lic generally are respectfully iinformed that early next month 'the " GOULBURN HERALD" will Qbe permanenily enlarged to nearly DOUBLE ITS PRESENT SIZE!!! IThe increased dimensions will afford ample room for the publi cation of much useful and inter esting information connected with the Mother country, as well as the Colonies, which we are con pelled to omit at present, owing ~to our limited space.

AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
AUSTRIA. CAPITULATION OF VpIEKA. --The intelligence from Vienna was of the highest interest. It ap pears from the German plipers, and even from otlicial documents, that the city haid dueoudi-. tionally surrendered on the 80th of October last. The attack lasted from the 28th to the evelning of the 20th, when at truce.was agreed Upon which extended to the following day at noon. Then the Hungarians, who had crossed the frontier, made an attack on the Irperial troops, in which they were assisted by a "sortie" of the Viennese, but were completely defeated.' Notwithstanding the capitulation of Vienna, which fact does not seem to admit of any .doubt;- the latest atlvices that had reached London assert that Windisch gritz had advanced-as far as dthe. Stephans Platz, that the Viennese had recoiumenced the combat, that Kossuth had arrrived itn the Hungarian camp, and that thie city had becn bombarded once more on the 31st. These state ments, however were vague and confused. The following part...
IRELAND. IRISH STATE TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
IRELAND. IRISH STATE TRIALS. When the Solicitor-General prayed judgment of the Court upon Thomas F. Meagher, con victed of High Treason, the prisoner was asked in the usual manner, " what he had to say why sentence should not be passed upon him:" to which Mr. Meagher replied as follows:--" My Lords, it is my intention to say a few words only. I desire that the last act of a proceeding which has occupied so much of the public time should be of short duration ; nor have I the indelicate wish to close the dreary ceremony of a state pro secution with a vain display of words. Did I fear that, hereafter, when I shall be no more, the country I have tried to serve would think ill of me, I might, indeed, avail myself of the solemn moment to vindicate my sentiments and my conduct. But I have no such fear. The country will judge of these sentiments, and of thlat conduct, in a light, I think, far diffirent from that in which the jury by which I have been convicted have viewed them; and, perhaps...

" Rev. Sir,-The re-appearanuce of the cholera in several parts of the kingdom has excited a generatl apprehension lest this country, which has been mercifully excepted from the political and stcial evils prevailing elsewhere, should still suffer the Divine judgment in the form of pestilence.

ORRAR AND iAUIRNE. (FROM THn TRISH.) BY JOHN CORNELIUS O'OALLAGHAN, ,sQ. I. She comes along the flow'ry lawn Joy sparkles in her dewy glance; And, in the fanning breath of dawn, Hucr jetty locks in ringlets dance. Less lovely, fromn his orient tow'r, The sun o'er bright Bin-Edur* glows; Less welcome falls the pearly show'r That wakes to life the flaiting rose, Than thon, enchanting Muirne! art To cheer thine Orrar's throbbing heart. It. Ere yet my youthful arm could -wave The glilt'ring sword in fields of fight; When tuneful bards to glory gave The deeds of Erin's matchless might; My bosom thrill'd with Valour's flame, Inspir'd by Music's kindling pow'r; I sigh'd to hear my father's fame, And barn'd for battle's fiercest hour; Bat Muirne !

UPSET PRICE OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
UPSET PRICE OF LAND. WtE were in hopes that ere this we could have presented our readers with Earl Grey's despatch to Sir Charles Fitz Roy on the subject of the Minimum Up set Price of Land, but from the nume rous arrivals of vessels from England with very important intelligence, we find that we are unable to print it in extenso. The following is, as Joseph Hume would say, " the sum total" of his Lord ship's observations :- His Lordship observes at the outset, that not being a question of pure local' concern, but one affecting the entire range of the British Colonies; it must be considered on its own merits. He con tinues, that to facilitate the appropria tion and use of waste lands, in a new country, is often argued as of the first importance, while revenue should be only a secondary object, but that although every colony until a recent period, had been founded on this plan, yet it had been attended with universal failure; that since a fixed price has been de manded, upwards of a m...

Watson, Esq., of this town, employed him to erect and finish a building which hle engaged to do at a certaip price. Gunning having to go to Sydney said he could purchase a number of things he required much cheaper than in Yass, providing Mr. Watson would advance him £20, which he did, but on Gunning arriving in Sydney appropriated it to his own use. He was allowed bail. The Governor who paid us a visit some since seemed much pleased at the appearance of Yass. He presented £5 to the hospital. The Archbishop of Sydney and Dr. Gregory have also been here, as well as the Attorney General, who was accompanied by his lady. The learned gentleman visited the store of Messrs. Myers and Alexander, and expressed his sur prise at seeing their extensive establishment. You will see by these arrival...
LATER FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
LATER FROM INDIA. CALCUTTA papers to the 16th November had been received at Adelaide. The Governor-General had proceeded to the north-west provinces, and a strong force, under the immediate command of Lord Gough, was marching upon Lahore and Mooltan. The Government, at last, tired out by these numerous and petty revolts, have determined to commence in real earnest, and subjugate the whole disaf fected territory by an overwhelming army of 40,000. Moolraj was deserted by his whole army, with the exception of 8,000 men. An attempt had been made on the life of General Walsh, but happily with out success. Australian tile copper was quoted at £111 per ton at Calcutta. !tfWe do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions or sentiments of Correspondents.

Original Correspondence. To The Editor of the Goulburn Herald, CAPTAIN ROSSI. — THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald, CAPTAIN ROSSI.-THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT. Sin,-In your paper of Saturday last, you ac cuse Captain Rossi of sundry grave crimes in reference to the first visit of His Excellency the Governor. As one of the community I must be be permitted to say that I consider the charge: so unsparingly thrown out, and the obloquy heaped upon Captain R., by no means merited. If the Governor thought proper to favor Captain Rossi by becoming the guest of the latter, I do not see bow Captain R. is to blame. Suppose His Excellency were to express to Mr. Faithfull, or any other gentleman in the district, that it was his intention to fix his quarters at the house of any one of them, I question if the represen tative of Her Majesty would be met with the answer, "I regret to say that I cannot comply with your Excellency's wish." It is objected to Captain R. that he is a foreigner-a Corsican if he is a foreigner, bhe is also a citizen of what is termed the freest country in ...
SYDNEY MARKETS. 16th FEBRUARY, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
SYDNEY MARKETS. 16th FnRnuaunj, 1849. WHEAT.-The supply continues decreasing on that of previous weeks. The cause of this is accounted for by the circumstances of the settlers being anxious to realize as soon as possible; in order to afford them means to continue the thrashing of their harvest, large quantities were at first poured into the market. Prices this week have advanced; and with the exception of a small sample of very prime, which is stated to have realiz 'd 3. 7d., have been general at all .he mills at 3 . to :s, ad. per bushel.

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 February 1849
FRANCE. PAnts, SUNDAY EvasNIro.-I wrote to you this morning, that an important meeting of the Rue de Poitiers took place last night, with respect to the election of the President of the Republic, and that the result was that, by a large majority, the club determined that it should not put for ward any special candidate, but would allow the members to vote as they choose. This resolu tion is exceedingly favorable to Louis Napoleon, for the effect of it is that both Marshal Bungeaud and General Chaugarnier, one or other of whom was to have been brought forward on the Legiti mist and Monarchist interests, have abandoned the contest. The Candidates at present known for the Presidency of the Republic are Gen. Cavaignac, M. de Lamartine, Marshal Bugeaud, and Prince Louis Napoleon Buonaparte. Bugeanud and Buoualparte are the only candidates who have as yet announced themselves and taken an active personal part in canvassing for support. The elections will take place in December.
