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

RUSSIAN. RESOURCES. The discover}' of new gold veins and the in troduction of improvements in the practice of engineering and mining skill in the Si berian mines since 1835), has greatly in creased the quantity of their product, yield ing the Ilitnperor of Russia such an amount oi treasures as to place him, in point of wealth, second to none 'in the world. On the 31st March, 1847, the accumulated un productive capital of gold bullion from the Siberian mines in the imperial treasury ex ceeded 144 millions of silver roubles, the silver rouble being equal to 3s. l^d. Eng lish currency. By a monetary ukase of that date, the sum of 30 millions of silver rou bles was appropriated for investment in the purchase of public funds, Russian as well as foreign, and was principally invested in English and French securities, leaving the sum of 84 millions of silver roubles in the Emperor's own coffers. At first it was generally thought that political motives ac tuated him, particularly as regarded...

To the Editor of The BATHURST FREE RESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 25 May 1850

To the Editor of The Bathurst Free Press. Sir,— I have for a length of time wondered at our police force not ? discharging that duty which devolves upon them of destroying the packs of dogs which are a common nuisance to our town. Numerous are the complaints winV.h are made bv the towns people of the an noyance which they fed arising from such an enormous quantity of these brutes being allowed to stray about the streets and public thorough fares, thus endangering the lives of indivi duals who may be riding by their rushing after the horses which may come in their way. 1 was my self riding during tho week through one of the streets of the town, and was attacked by a troop of these abominable pests. It is quite time that the nuisance to which I refer should be abolished, and it is a matter of surprise tome that every year there is a great itir made about registering dogs, inti mating that all those will be destroyed which are found to be unregistered. The grand question then is how ca...

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

SIBERIAN EXILES. In Russia, corporal punishments are much in use; criminals are seldom pat to death, but are sent off to Siberia for almost every kind of offence, from the highest political offence to petty larceny. The most hideous offenders, according1 to Sir Georore Simnson. are sent to the mines ; those guilty of minor delinquencies are settled in villages, or on farms. Statesmen, authors, and sol diers, banished thither for political offences, are generally permitted to establish them selves in small communities, where they spread refinsment through the country. As a natural consequence, he observes that ' all grades of society are considerably more in telligent than the corresponding gradeo in any other part of the empire ; perhaps more so than in any part of Europe. Many of the exiles are men of large in come ; and he adds : ' In fact, for the re forming of the criminal, in addition to the punishment of the crime, Siberia is un doubtedly the best penetentiary in the world.

THE LATE INFANTICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 25 May 1850

THE LATE INFANTICIDE. At the conclusion of the inquest over the remains of the infant in the late case of in^ fanticide, Mr. Mockett applied to the Coro ner for instructions respecting the disposal of the bo^y. He was informed by that gentleman that he had no power to make any order in the matter, and the body was left with him to dispose of it as he best could. As no coffin had been provided, he caused the remains to be tempr-rarily ii)» terred upon his premises until he could take further steps. Yesterday we were called upon to witness the disinterment of the body by Mr. Mockett, who had, at his own expeuse, obtuiaeda coffin ; when, strange to say, that with the exception of the skeleton, not one particle remained, although not more than four weeks have elapsed since their discovery. He has made application to the Rev. Mr. Chapman for permission to inter these frail relics in the Wes leyan burial ground. Our remarks upon this case will be few and pointed. If the Coroner's statemen...

THE SPIRIT OF BEPUBLICANISM. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 25 May 1850

THE SPIRIT OF BEPUBLICANISM {From the Weekly Despatch.) It is very obvious, upon the most cursory view of the natural history of society, that intelligence and morality are the conditions precedent to liberty. In their earliest stages mankind always reduce community to ab solutism. The patriarch is an autocrat in his family, just as the oldest buffalo or ele phant, or stag, or goat, or sheeep, rules the rest of the herd with au iron rod. His wives are slaves, and he asserts the power of life and death over his children. As no niades become larger, the chief who is the most cunning, warlike, strong, dominates supreme. There are no votes taken in a tribe of savages. The squaws and the youthhood are made drudges and cyphers ; the conquered are made slaves ; the few who are best painted and most tatooed meet, sit cross-legged, smoke, and dictate. In Africa, the drunken King, after a heavy supper and nightmare, whacks off as many heads as he has got messages to his great grandfather in t...
