FEMALE EMIGRANT SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

FEMA.LE EMIGRANT SHIPS. The following letter from Mr. Brooks King, a graduate of Cambridge who was appointed to the office of religious teacher, on board the James Gibb, emigrant ship, bound to New South Wales, will be read with in terest, now that it is nrooosed to raise a fund in aid of female emigration, applicable in the first instance to the removal to Aus tralia of the distressed needlewomen of London. ' Off Sydney, June 11, 1849. ' There were shocking scenes on board ; continued attempts at mutiny, only put down by the strong, arm and the threats of j the 'pistol ; while the coarse indecency of the women was most revolting. Aly idea of an emigrant ship, from whut I have seen and heard since our arrival («nr own is a favourable instance, from the strict disci pline maintained,) the hot bed of vice and hrutality.

Original Poetry. LINES [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

Original Poetry. . LINES BY 'WILLIAM: M. IBOGBTT, if. A. Why is man endow'd -with mind That can never know repletion, ?And yet doom'dto leavo behind All this glorious creation ? I would live to compass things Beyond transitory glory, And bestow imaginings Worthy of immortal story ! But, alas ! this struggling brain Soon must sink in dissolution ! After having learn'd, in vain, Thus to feel its destitution ! O the hours, tho precious hours Melting from my life's short season, — Bro my intellectual pow'rs Catch the alphabet of reason ! Why so fleet, when truths so vast Open and increase around mo ? O that life could ever last ! Or that being ne'er had found mo ! As the miser hoards his treasure, So I prize each golden minute ; But 'tis gone, before I measure SJiades of substances within it ! Yet 'tis almost grasping fame, To essay the bold endeavour ! Death may desolate my name ; — But the thought shall burn for over ! ! ! 15th Slay, 1850.

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

Miscellaneous Extracts. Tempting Jenny Lind to America. — | A letter from P. T. Barnum, of the Ame rican Museum, New York, published in the New York journals, says, ' Jenny Lind has sent no agent to America ; but I have sent two to her, one of whom recently re turned from an interview with her, and has now gone to meet her at Stockholm, with my proposals. As regards terms, I under stand and believe that Mr. Knowles, Man ager of the Manchester Theatre, who en gaged Jenny Lind to sing in the provincial towns of Great Britain, paid her £400 sterling per night. I understand also, that it was no unusual thing for Mr. Lumley, director of the Queen's Opera, in London, to receive 561800 to £2000 sterling on Jenny's nights. It is absurd, therefore, to suppose that I could expect to engage her 200 nights for 50,000 dollars, only 250 dollars per night. Now, the truth is, I have offered her more than four times that amount per night besides paying the ex penses from Stockholm, and during her en...

British Extracts. . THE WOOL TRADE. &c. (From Bell's Messenger, Jan. 7.) London. —Last week's imports of wool into London were three bags from Auck land ; 512 bales from Sydney ; 1373 ditto from Port Phillip ; and 68 from the Cape. We understand that supplies of fine colo nial qualities are much wanted in the ma nufacturing districts, and that further public sales will take place on the arrival of several vessels now on the passage laden with wool. The private contract market is very firm, and prices are well supported in every instance. Bradford. -The business doing in wools is not large and the consumers generally are well supplied ; but there is no inclina tion on the p-jrt of the staplers to submit to lower prices, seeiog the prices demanded by the growers will not admit of it.

HBvisinal -£tft*c«3pmtcfence. To the Editor of the BATiiuasT Fuee Press. Sir,— Perceiving by your laader of last Saturday, and the remarks of various other public journals, that the Rev. Dr. Lang has been delivering a series of lectures in Sydney , advocating upon ultra dflmnnratie nrinc'mles. the formation of a ' grand ' Australian League,' (to embrace the whole neigh bouring colonies, however homogeneous in social structure, or anomalous in origin,) and having in view the effecting finally their entire separation from and independence of Great Britain, I would wish, with your permission, to offer some arguments in opposition to tho notable scheme of that fertile pro jector, and indefatigable agitator, Dr. Lang. The subject offers two questions to be solved : first, is the aim practicable? and secondly, if ob tained, would it tend to the advantage of the co lony, in its present chrysalis state ? Now, as re gards the first, to read the conclusion of tho Dr/s last lecture, one would ...

SUMMER HILL MIME. CAPTAIN CLYMO'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

SUMMER, HILL MIME. Captain Clymo's Report. Sir, — According to your request I have carefully inspected the Bathurst Company's Mine at Sum mer-hill, and now beg to call attention to a Report of my investigations. The workings have been principally confined to exploring the ' Gillman dyke' lode, and another lode unnamed about 150 fathoms apart,' on different sides of a creek that runs in nearly a northwesterly direction through the mine. The stratum in which the lodes are embedded, is compact clay slate, that will not be difficult to penetrate. On the Gillmandyke lode, the workings are nearly filled with water, and I am indebted to the kindness of Capt. Whitford, foi a knowledge of the extent to which they have been conducted, as well as for information relative to the nature of this lode below the surface, except by an examination of some vein-stuff near tho mouth of a shaft, which is composed of white hard quartz spotted with copper and iron pyrites. At sur face the rock near this l...

CAPTAIN WHILFORD'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

CAPTAIN WHirFO.lD'S LETTER. [n our anxiety to make known to the pub lic the result of our inquiries respecting 'aplnin Clymo's visit to the Sunnmer Hill mine, we rather inadvertently, and, we learn, somewhat nnprofessionally, stated that ' Captain Clvrao discovered a considerable quantity of enpper pyrites in u lode fifteen fathoms in length,' &o. The word ' au thority' also found its way into our article, which probably leads Captain Whitford to suppose that our ' authority' instructed us to state a little bit of truth mixed with a great deal of nonsense, If so, he will, per haps, be gratified to learn that we most willingly exonerate our ' authority' from having uttered any nonsense, as regards the facts of the case, and that the error, (we will not say ' errors') is purelyeditorial, and ia most likely attributable to the writer being a Lancashire instead of a Cornish man. Captain Whitford shews a distaste to the word ' discovered,' and begs 'to state that these discoverie...

REMINISCENCES OF A TRAVELLER. BRITISH AMERICA.— (continued) No. V. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 18 May 1850

REMINISCENCES OF A TRAVELLER. BY WILLIAM M. LEGGETT, M. A. BRITISH AMERICA.— (continued )   No. V.

He was roguishly called aside for about twenty minutes, and the interval of his ' absence improved in concocting a scheme that promised to result in lots of fun.

THE BATHIJRST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, MAY 13. 1850. ' MA.ONA. EST VEKITAS ET rR2EVALKBlT.' DR. LANG AND REPUBLICANISM.' In our. last we alluded to the very remark able facility with which the Reverend Dr. Lang undertakes a multiplicity of gigantic works, each of which would require an in tellect of no ordinary measurement for its proper guidance and successful completion. Whilst quite willing to place to the credit of his account uncommon energy, untiring activity, great experience, and a penetrating intellect, we do not see in him that pru dence, moderation, and strong common cense, which are primary requisites in any man who seeks to be an effective reformer, and particularly, when the reforms he de sires to accomplish aim at nothing less than the destruction of one form of government and the creation of another. There are considerations of such tremendous import involved in these questions, that, though strongly inclined, we cannot give way to a disposition to raillery, with which ...

CHEMISTRY AND VEGETABLE FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 25 May 1850

CHEMISTRY AND VEGETABLE FOOD. It is the object of chemical research not merely to explain know facts, but to remove misapprehensions and to correct erroneous opinions. The recent determinations of the .proportion of nitrogen contained in wheat have served both these purposes. Thus it was long asserted and believed, that the wheat of warm climates always contained more nitrogen, and was consequently more nutritive and of higher money value, than the wheat of our more temperate countries. But later researches have corrected this hasty deduction ; and'have placed our home wheat in its proper position, economical and nutritive, as compared with the wheat of India, of Southern Australia, or the Black Sea. Again, the British miller usually re quires a portion of foreign wheat to mingle with our native grain, both to make it grind more easily and to satisfy the baker with a flour which will stand much water. The pastrycook and the maccaroni maker also demand of him a flour which will make ...

REMINISCENCES OF A TRAVELLER. BY WILIiTAlt JL LEGaETT, M. A. BRITISH AMERICA .—( 'continued J No. VII, The proud saying, ' that the sun never sets on the British Empire,' is literally true. As its evening rays recede from the groves of Honduras, its morning beams are reflected i,,r thfi snirea of Calcutta, and three hours before the people of Montreal and of Ja maica are deprived of its cheering influence, British subjects are hailing its rise on the western'shores of New Holland. Our colonies surpass in size the whole of the Russias— their extent is double that of the European continent — and more than twice exceeds what Imperial Rome was. when she styled herself mistress of the nations. But what was England — I mean England in her solitude — almost to the close of the fifteenth century ? While Venice and Ge noa swept the commercial world, her trade was limited to the Mediterranean with an occasional voyage to the African coast. She was also dependant on strangers f.ir the few ship...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 25 May 1850

FRANCE. The reaction «n the continent is taking daily a more decided shape. Many of the officials throughout France professing Socialist doctrines have been dismissed, nnd others, appointed by the members of the first Provisional Government, have been gradually moved from one post to another till they are either harmless or extinct. Louis Blanc, on his first accession to power, g-ave the son of his washerwoman un important place at Versailles ; the man could scarcely write, and covered himself with ridicule in the eyes of every body. A thousand instances of the same kind were to be found throughout the country, yet such was the dread of the reputation of ' reactionaryistn ' that the Government have only just ventured on. the final removal of a part. of these men. Func tionaries of ludicrous incapacity maintained their posts by calling themselves good republicans. Et is no slight indication of the change of feeling that such persons can be dismissed without danger. Meanwhile, the mon...

For, in itself, each shin is an island. a floating colony of the tribe to which it belongs. Here are brought together the remotest limits°of the earth ; and, in the collective spars and timbers of these ships, all the forests of the globe are re presented as in a grand parliament of masts. Canada and New Zealand send their pines, America her live oak, India her teak, Not way her spruce, and the Slight Honourable Mahogany,1 member for Honduras and Campeachy, is seen at his post by the wheel.
