COWRA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850
COWRA. We were very agreeably surprised, on Monday evening last, by the announcement that the Rev. James B. Laughton, B. A., minister of the Pres byterian Church of Scotland, had arrived in our village, and that it u'as his intention to hold divine sorvico at eight o'clock. The news spread rapidly from dwelling to dwelling, and in about a quarter of an hour before the appointed time might be seen numbers of the inhabitants wending their way to wards the Fitz Roy Arms, where they were highly delighted at the splendid discourse delivered by the Rev. Gentleman. We are given to understand, and sincerely wish it may be the fact, that it is the in tention of Mr. Laughton to visit this part of his district once every month ; if so. it will be con ferring a great blessing on the whole of this small community.

Country Slews. CARCOAR.— QUEEN'S BIRTH-DAY. The anniversary of Her Majesty's birth-day was celebrated by her loyal subjects of Carcoar with bi-. coming respect. The dawn of the auspicious day which had given to her faithful and attached peopli', an exemnlarv sovereign, in whom are mino-Wl .-til the virtues of the woman and mother witli the dig nity of the queen, was greeted by a discharge of fire-arms. The Union .Jack — ' The flag lhat braved a thousand years Tho battle and the breeze.' — was hoisted in token of the day's rejoicings. Men stayed from work ; business of every kind ;va3 sus pended, and the day was held as one of joy and festivity. Volley succeeded volley from dawn till midnight. The bustle and excitement were in creased by the arrival, from hour to hour, of gen tlemen from the bush, who came to add their own to the general stock of happiness and enjoyment. In the evening all the inns of the town were illu minated. A grand display of fire-works took place at Mr. Arnold'...
THE BOTTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850
THE BOTTLE. The Man in the Moon, in the course of his observations on human character has re marked, that of all his acquaintance who are at all in the habit of getting what vul gar people call ' boozy,' there is not one who does not offer some admirable excuse for so doing. Struck with the singularity of this fact, the Man in the Moon has in stituted a commission of inquiry into the matter, the result of which he begs to lay before his readers : — Mr. A. drinks because his doctor has recommended him to take a little. Mr. B. because his doctor has or dered him not, and he hates such quackery. Mr. C. just takes a drop because he's wet. Mr. D. drinks because he's dry. Mr. E. because he feels something rising in his stomach. Mr. F. because he feels a kind of sinking in his stomach. Mr. G. because he's going to see his friend off to Australia. M.

OUR FEMALE SUPERNUMERARIES. IN A SERIES OF VIEWS' [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850
OUU FEMALE SUPERNUMERARIES. IN A SERIES OF VIEWS' CFrom Punch. J The Commbrcial View. — The muslin home market is in a state of extreme de pression. The supply greatly exceeds the demand, and the article is a mere drug. Hands can scarcely command a purchaser, and the enquiries for hearts are very few. Sempstresses are quoted at lamentably re duced figures, and domestic servants, at no time particularly brisk, are now duller than ever. The colonial trade in this description of goods, however, is still lively, ihey being especially in request in Australia, whither some shipments of them have already been consigned ; and it is to be hoped that every facility will be given to their continued ex portation. The Cynical View. — Wherever there is mischief, women are sure to be at the bot tom of it. The state of the country bears out this old saying. All our difficulties arise from a superabundance of females. The only remedy for this evil is to pack up bag and baggage, and start them away. ...

THE 'BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JUNE 1. 1850. ' MAGNA EST VERITAS BX PIUEVALEBIT.' OUR CORONER. Our remarks upon the infanticide casfi in last week's issue, operated upon the war like constitution of our worthy Coroner, and brought him ' beiling o'er wi wrath' into Bathurst at an early hour on Monday morn inff. He honored our office with his bodily presence shortly after we had swallowed our coffee, and with compressed lip, and fiery eye, he opened, a colloquy, which for vehemence and grandeur, completely de ranged our nervous system, and sent our mental faculties playing topsy-turvy one over another in a most delightful state of disorder. After letting off a little of his Buperfluousindignation, and thus moderating his mercurial temperament, he thrust his arm, elbow deep, into his big-coat pocket, out of which he drew a couple of docu ments, which proved to be communications from Government relative to the powers vested in him of incurring expenses for the burial of the dead in...

CARCOAR NATIONAL SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850
CARCOAEt NATIONAL SCHOOL. Sometime in August last, the good people of Carcoar, impressed with the importance of educating their children, covened a meet ing for the purpose of considering the steps necessary to be taken for the fulfilment of so laudable an object. The late John Kin chela. Esa., had, a short time previously, been appointed Commissioner of National Schools for these districts, and happened to visit Carcoar on a sojourn through the country, with the object of ascertaining the educational wants of the people, and wherever he found a desire existed amongst them to avail themselves of the blessings of education, of establishing schools upon the National System- Considering the size of the place, the meeting was numerous and respectable, and several speeches were de livered, dilating upon the inestimable bene fit which would be conferred upon their children, by the steps they were then taking. Some little opposition was offered to the National system, but the meeting passe...
Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 1 June 1850
Xiooal Entellig-ence. Singular Coincidence. — In the last week's Free Press, we published a beautiful poetical com position, which Was handed over to us by Dr. Machattie, who had extracted it from an Ayrshire newspaper. It is headed 'Drink ! Drink ! Drink !' and in style and tone boars a strong resemblance to Hood's celebrated 'Song- of the Shirt.' Upon its appearance, the points of resemblance were no ticed by several lovers of poesy, and a discussion ensued as to the priority of the productions, some asserting that the plan of the former piece was borrowed from the latter one, which was rendered probable by ' The Song of the Shirt' appearing in 1843 ; whereas (he other poem was not published until the following year. At the head of the origi nal, there is a note, which anticipates the circum stance that observations of this nature would be made, and denying the possibility of piracy in the slightest degree, as the manuscript had been in the publisher's possession for a considerabl...

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ON NATIONAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 June 1850
THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ON NATIONAL EDUCATION. The Legislature had, for the purposes of of National Education, voted £2,000 for the Middle District, £1,500 for the Squat ting Districts, and £1,500 for Port Phillip. The Board desired that these funds should be equally distributed ; they did not desire to force them upon anybody, but u any person thought that the Denominational System was too narrow in its scope, and wished to try the other system, they must apply at once to the Board, and their ap plications would receive attentive consi deration. But the funds were limited, and it must be ' first come first served.' The Board had no desire to come into antago nism with the Denominational schools, nor was it for him to decry that system, but he was afraid that an essential objection to that system was the inadequacy of the teacher's salaries. The minimum salary given in the National schools was .=£40, and there were instances where teachers had so gra tified parents and the Board by the...
DR. LANG. To the Editor of The BATHURST FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 June 1850
DR. LANG. To the Editor of The Bathurst Free Press. Sir,— -Scarcely a week passes but what brings forth a fresh attack on the Rev. Dr. Lang, in one or other of the colonial journals, the most distin guishinp; feature of which seems to be an utter want of facts ; and the writers of which, in endeavouring to detract from his well-earned fame, stop not at trifles. Your correspondent, *' Anti-Leaguer,' in last week's paper, finds fault with you for having devoted so much- of your space in convincing the public of the insanity of 'that infatuated old gen tleman, Dr. Lang,'- and gives -it, as his opinion, if left alone, the Rev. Gentleman and his visionary schemes would sink into insignificance. 'In- fatuated old gentleman,' — forsooth ! There is no danger of ?' Anti- Leaguer ' being infected with such insanity as Dr. Lang is labouring under. Now, Sir, on tho' question of our fitness for ' free ' government, I cannot agree with Dr. Lang j but I cordially do so, on the importance of a; leg...
