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

WELLINGTON. The weather here has been remarkably dry for the last four months, and the stock are suffering much for want of grass and water. At a great many stations on the back creeks, the water has failed, so that the stock are greatly crowded on the rivers. We have had light frost several mornings lately, and during the heat of the day the thermo- meter stood at 79° in the shade. The weather is de- lightfully pleasant as one could wish, but every- thing shows the need for rain. We have had ac- counts from the Lower Macquarie which state that the grass is exceedingly scarce, and the river in many places dry for miles. A man named Robert Quanto was brought be- for the Bench, charged with being found on the     premises of E. B. Cornish, Esq., Nanima, at an unseasonable hour and under suspicious circum-     stances. Their worships awarded him six months   in Bathurst gaol, under the Vagrant Act. GOLD.—For some years pa...

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

Local Intelligence. QUEEN'S BIRTH-DAY. — Yesterday passed of,   without any of those external demonstrations of joy with which the anniversary of Her Majesty's birth-day, is generally marked. In the evening, however, several of the Public Inns and private dwellings were illuminated, amongst which we noticed the "Daniel OConnell Inn" as being   particularly conspicuous. The windows were literally one blaze. The streets were pa raded by a large concourse of men women and boys accompanied by a band, and firing guns, crackers and squibs in their progress. Reports of fire-arms boomed from every quarter of the town, and for several hours in the early part of the even ing the streets presented a very lively appearance. If the loyalty of the good people of Bathurst be tested by these outward and visible signs, there is certainly no lack of it. IMMIGRANT BARRACKS. — These Barracks have been inspected by Mr. Mayne, who arrived from Goulburn in the early part of the w...

TUT ERE YOU DESPAIR. 'STou may be Cured ^STet! WONDERFUL CURE EFFECTED BY HOLLOWAY'S PILLS AND OINT MENT ! ! Copy of a letter from Captain E. F. Ferris, Com manding, Rampore Forces, Rohilcund, dated January \5tlt, 1849. SIR, — As I deem so wonderful a medicine as Professor Holloway's is, ought to be well known, I take the liberty of reporting a miraculous cure here under my own eye. An old woman, aged 50 years, has for the last two years been quite bed-ridden, having entirely lost the use of her legs from the hip , joints ; the limbs had become quite hard, ( like horn (what the natives call ?* Soonie.') All feeling quite gone, so much so, that you might cut her, and she was unconscious of pain. When I prescribed Holloway's treat ment and Medicine, her limbs were to all appearance quite dead, and without the slightest feeling. After twelve days perse verance with the Ointment she complained of great pain in the limbs, ' like the prick ing of pins.' I still continued the treat ment ; ...

Miscellaneous Sstracts. Dismissal op a London Jury.-— Sin- gular Scene. ?— Immediately after the learned Judge had taken his seat upon the bench, at the Central Criminal Court, on the 15th of December, a number of pri soners were brought to the bar to plead, whereupon Mr. Ballantyne, addressing his lordship, said he was engaged to defend some six or eight prisoners, whos names were down in that list for the court, and who were then at the bar ; but for good and valid reasons he objected to any client ofv his. being tried by the jury then in the box, and therefore, on behalf of each of the prisoners fpr whom he was concerned, he challenged, as he had a perfect right to do, tjhe whole jury. Mr. Clarkson having taken the names of the prisoners for whom Mr. Ballahtine had been retained, the court directed them, to be removed into one of the other courts to be tried.

COMMERCIAL INDICATIONS FOR 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850

COMMERCIAL INDICATIONS FOR- 1850: ('From tlie Times , January 1.) The question arises — What are the indica tions for 1 850 ? There is every sign that the influx of specie will continue. Impor tations are to be expected from Russia, the silver mines of South Americu are in full activity, and from California the principal amount of what has been collected during the season will be brought by the emigrants returning for the winter. Assuming, how ever, that the total merely, remains, as at present, it must lead to most remarkable results. It is from financial movements, and not from wars or physical convulsions, that the chief events of public history now take their rise; and hence it is impossible that any unprecedented condition with re spect to the distribution of the precious metals can occur without being followed by some unprecedented changes, temporary or otherwise, in the general course of the world's affairs. Whenever the bullion in the Bank, of England shall fall lower, or, a...

Brttlsto Extracts. ALARMING. RIOT AT STAFFORD, A Protectionist meeting, having been called by the Lord Lieutenant of the County of Stafford, on Thursday, January lOthi there was a strong muster of farmers, and the ra dical mobs of the town attended in great force to endeavour to stop their delibera tions. As -Lord' St. Vincent was'- about to address- the meeting, the' free-traders set up a most discordant noise, consisting of hisses groans, and yells, and cries of ' We won't hear you, sit down — give us cheap bread and lower your rents.' Several disturban ces took place in the body of the Hall, and amidst the eries of ' police' and ' mur der,!' a general fight took place. Both parties appeared to be pretty well armed for the fray, and a set-to a la Donnybrook com menced ; but, after about fifteen minutes good fighting, the police were let into the Hall from a side door. A similar scene was enacted during Lord Newport's speech. Lord Talbot came forward. lie had no sooner taken his pl...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850

(©ctfftttftl Cmxcdflcrtttfeirce. To the Editor of the BATiiuasT Fuee Press. Sir, — In your issue of Saturday last, I have ob served an advertisement calling for tenders to sink and timber, at Summerhill, a vertical shaft, 25 fathoms deep, 8 feet long, and 5 feet wide. If this is not a hoax, it is one of the most pro fminr). ari vnrHnnmnnt.s F fivp.r snw in connection with mining ; for the common sense of every practical and experienced miner will tell him, that there is not a man in the universe capable of telling within two or three hundred pounds, what it is worth to sink such a shaft. If the Bathursfc Mining Company has really come to the determination to begin this shaft, then they should let it by the fathom, inasmuch as I know that there are miners here able to calculate as they sink down what it will be worth per fathom. But I beg leave to ask, have the directors of this Company coolly and deliberately counted the costs of such an undertaking ? and, if s--, have they de termi...

To the Editor of the Bat-hurst Ejiee Press. Sik, — The greatest part of the Australian Press is wasting its time in castigating that infatuated old gentleman, Doctor Lang. Even you, Mr. Editor, must devote no less than six mortal columns to convince your readers that he is labouring under a fit of temnornry insanity. Now, my ODinion is, that you are all wasting your time, and that he is not worth more than a fractional part of the trouble that has been taken with him. What was it that gnined Socialism its notoriety, and all the Other isms that have distracted Great Britain during the last hundred years ? — opposition and persecution. If left to their own intrinsic merits, they would die in their swaddling clothes, and ' Like the baseless fabric of a vision, Leave not a wreck behind.' And so with the Rev. Doctor ; only treat him with tlie silence he deserves : just leave him alone, and he and his. Lenguo will soon be buried in forget fulncss. I could not help, laughing at the prosy r...

DESTRUCTION OF NATIVE DOGS BY STRICHNINE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850

DESTRUCTION OF NATIVE DOGS BY STR1CHNINE. The native dog has not latterly occupied so promi nent a place in colonial history as he did in the early settlement of the colony. In former times, his deeds of havoc were faithfully chronicled by the newspaper press of the mother-country, and placed amongst the difficulties and discouragements or theeariy seiner's me. xne owners oisneepgrau ually became familiar with his habits, and not only took precautionary measures against his devastative practices, but by giving encouragement, in the shape of tobacco or other groceries, to their shep herds and hutkeepers, the race was greatly thinned. Finding themselves comparatively safe from the attacks of the mid-night marauder upon their folds, they discontinued the tail money, and the breed, lias, in consequence, gone on increasing from year to year, until they arc now as numerous as ever.; and unless sdme steps are taken for their extermi nation, the pest threatens to become a serious evil.
