THE JURY LISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 March 1848

THE JURY LISTS. Much dissatisfaction prevails as to the mode of preparing and correcting the Jury Lists, and we presume the cause of com- plaint must arise with the magistrates, whose province it is to correct and amend them , the chief complaint being, in the     selection of special jurors. The persons qualified by Act of Council to serve on   juries are men of the age of twenty-one   years, possessed of a clear yearly income from real estate of £30, or of real or per- sonal estate of the value of £300. A list of persons so qualified is to be prepared by the chief constable of each police district, who is required to make out a list with the degree, calling, or business, and nature of qualification of each juror, and the magis- trates are directed to correct this list.     The Special Jurors are selected by the sheriff from the Jury List, by taking a list of the names of every man, therein described as a...

Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 March 1848

Original Correspondence. "By the British Constitution, every man's house   is his castle! Not that it is surrounded by walls and battlements ; it may be a straw-built shed; every wind of Heaven may whistle round it; all the elements of nature may enter it ; but the King cannot ; the King dare not !"   Extract from Earl Chatham's Speech in the House of Commons, 1764. "By the British Constitution, every man's house   may be entered! Not only by the King, but by   the meanest of his officials ; the inmate dragged from the presence of his wife and family, and through the public streets ; and for this he shall have no redress, so long as the said official can show, that he was under the impression that he was doing his duty !''     Substance of Mr. Justice Manning's charge to a jury at Bathurst, 1848.

Original Poetry. "LOST IN THE BUSH." [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 March 1848

Original Poetry.                       "LOST IN THE BUSH!"     BY WILLIAM CRAIGIE. "Lost in the bush—can it be so!" The stranger trav'ller cried,     As his flush'd cheeks with fear did glow   Now he his error spied:         Whilst round as far as sight could go, Hot vapour's breath did with'ring blow ! Still did he think he took the route That led him on his way ;         Onward he went, 'twixt fear and doubt, Till near the close of day:   The western sky began to flake,       And swans then calmly swam the lake..   Now desp'rate vigour nerv'd his form,       Whilst frenzy ...

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 March 1848

~; Monday, February 2*. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Manning. Mr. C. H. Green', Mr. D. M. Irving, Mr. R. Lane, and Mr. W. Lane, senior, Assessors. , SMITH V. BARTON. ?Mr. Lowe for plaintiff; the Attorney-General for defendant. This was an action of trespass — damages laid at £500. . It appeared that some dispute had arisen between the plaintiff and one Samuel Phillips, rela tive to the right of possessing a large iron pot used for sheep washing ; the history of the iron pot was not gone into, but it came out in the' hearing of the case that Phillips had made a deposition before the defendant, who thereupon issued a search and ap prehend iug warrant ; the pot was found at a station of the plaintiff's, and he was submitted to some trifling duresse inconsequence ; for this he sought compensation by the present action. . The counsel for plaintiff, in his opening speech, threw out an insinuation that defendant was actuated by malice in granting this warrant, that the parties occupied adj...

HINTS TO ADVERTISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 4 March 1848

HINTS TO ADVERTISERS. Brother Jonathan indulges in advertising to an extent altogether unknown in any   other country in the world. To use an obsolete Crown and Anchorism, "It is like   the air he breathes,—if he has it not he   dies!" and consequently all the American newspapers are almost literally brim-full of advertisements; in newspapers containing   thirty-six columns, you shall find only four columns of new matter, and all the remain- ing thirty-two columns packed full of ad- vertisements—nothing but advertisements;   And such advertisements!—none of your     cool, quiet, modest Maccassar invitations;   but bold, blustering demands upon your attention by sound of trumpet; and as the   fat knight said of Prince Hal, they have "d------ble iteration too!" In fact they           iterate and reiterate ...

We allude to the delapidated state of the streets in the township.

LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 March 1848

LIFE, When first our wandering steps we traced, Upon this heartless world's wide stage, We little thought that thorns were placed . On each step of our pilgrimage. I All seemed so bright, .all seemed so fair, We saw hot, knew not, ought to fear ; Devoid of guile, and free from care, *? ; 'Twas pleasure all — no mis' ry here ! Bright faces round us,' beaniirig love, Affections true, giy'n without gain, .;? ', We saw no change, , nor thought :to prove That all those joys would turn to pain. But soon a change came o'er our dream- .-.;.. Thrown on the world, we shortly found 'Twas heartless— callous^cold: our stream Of pleasure was but empty sound. Yet further as our steps we traced, Rose up new troubles at our feet, No pleasure then— but misery graced The path before which seemed so sweet. And further still, new griefs arose, ' Higher and higher on our sight ; Increasing as the stream that flows, And drowns the prospect, once so bright ! And is there then no way to fly, From sorrows ha...

AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 March 1848

AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. We had hoped ere/thia, to have- seen some attempts made to 'establish an Agricultural Society in this district. The forthcoming Court of Quarter Sessions and the Races being likely' to attract a considerable influx of visitors, a more favorable opportunity of making a movement, in the cause is not likely to present itself for a considerable time. We have so often spoken on this subject that vie shall perhaps be accused of having but one string to our fiddle. We, however, can bear all that, and more, if we' only see a chance of our honest endeavours being ultimately successful. ?

AN IRISH DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 11 March 1848

AN I R I S H D A N C E.' A writer on the Irish people says — The Irish dance, like every; other assembly       composed of Irish men and Irish women, pre sents the spectator with all those traits   which enter into our conception of rollick ing fun and broad humour. The very arrangements are laughable, and when join ed to the eccentric strains of some fiddler     like Barney Dhal, t the grotesquet and caricaturish faces of the men, and the mo dest, but evidently arch and laughter loving countenances of the females, they cannot fail to impress an observing mind with the obvious truth, that a nation of people so thoughtless, and so easily directed from the serious and useful pursuits of life to such scenes, can seldom be industrious and weal thy, nor, despite their mirth and humour, a happy people. The barn in which they danced on this occasion, was a large one. Around the walls were placed as many seats as ...
