Original Currespondence. To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 30 December 1848

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of The Bathurst Advocate. Sir,— A short time since, in company with a few friends, I went to visit the caves, situate at Fish River, about fifty miles from Bathurst, and as the sight was most magnificent, I have taken the liberty to send you the following account, thinking, that although the de scription may be but a faint and imperfect one, yet it might be interesting to the readers of the BATHURST ADVOCATE.         The road to the Caves presents many difficulties to   the timid or faint hearted traveller, as he has to urge his way forward through a thick bushy scrub, and to undertake the fatigue of ascending and descending mountains, the sides of which are alarmingly steep and precipitous, and which at first sight appear ab- solutely impassable. However, our little party deter- mined to proceed, and at length arrived in safety, at the spot we sought. Our first business after rea...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 30 December 1848

; THE EATHUUST AMOOATK. ^SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1848. Whatever may be the final result of the pre sent cemdition of Europe, and by whatever in 'Struraentality and agency these results may be obtained, it. is undeniable that the civilized world is contemplating this condition with such feelings of amazement as largely partake of the horrible. The principles of former times, by which the. politics of statesmen were 'governed, have, in these latter days, lost their vitality and consequent efficiency; and such r^ new .order of things has arisen in society — such a new era has dawned upon ^mankind at large, that the policies of individual nations sink into - comparative . insignificance, except .when, .viewed as. portions of the policy by which a \yorld is'to be. governed. . ...That the jealousies, fears, hopes, and selfish ness, of the different powers of Europe will willingly _ acknowledge the j ustness of these opinions, is more, than we have good reason to expect. The history' of the...

Bathurst, 27th Dec. 1848.             To the Discriminating Gentlefolks of of the District of Bathurst,         Per favor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. GENTLEMEN,— Taking tho community of Bathurst as one at all times anxious to promote the Sports of the Turf, and ever ready to receive any little suggestion affecting the same, I beg to offer the following on the point of selecting Stewards for the Races, viz. :— First. Make the enquiry who are the persons that keep Race Horses, and having found them out, then try which of them have any relatives or connections in the District who would be likely to accept the office of Steward. All that remains then to be done is, imme- diately to call upon the Gentleman, and ask his con- sent to act. If he grant it, congratulate yourself upon your success, for rest assured, that not only will the   decisions of t...

'To the Editor of THE BATHURST ADVOCATE.   Bathurst, 27th Dec., 1848.   SIR, — Having noticed, with feelings of pleasure, your continued aim to direct public attention to the correc- tion of abuses, and your zealous guardianship of the welfare of the inhabitants of our thriving town, I have taken the liberty, through the medium of your journal, to call the attention of our Chief Constable to those dens of infamy and pollution existing in the thoroughfare leading from Mrs. Black's Inn to Howick-street, more generally known under the cog- nomen of Barrack Lane, (alias little Hell). I will not   occupy your space by reciting the revolting scenes and disgusting language that daily occurs, particularly on the Sabbath Day, in this locality, far: surpasses any Billingsgate, or Pill-lane vocabulary; but trusting these remarks may have the desired effect in rooting out a few of these characters, it will not only confer a great obligation on the few resp...

Irish State Prisoners. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 January 1849

Irish State Prisoners. At the present moment the following notice of the early life and career of the faction, who have brought about the present state of things in Ireland, may not perhaps be uninter- esting. A brief biography of Mr. Smith O'Brien's life has already been made public. Mr. C. Gavan Duffey is the son of a farmer in the county Monaghan. In his early career, he occupied a very subordinate position indeed. The first prominent position he occupied was, that of a writer on the Dublin Morning Register, a repeal or radical publication, now extinct. He subsequently proceeded to Belfast, where he was employed by the priest of the district, to edit and otherwise manage a journal known as the Belfast Vindicator. Mr. Duffey, while in this position, supported the 'Whigs. On the   latter party being driven from office in 1841, the Vindicator grew more violent, but never-   theless its circulation gradually decreased, and it was almost defunct, when Mr. Duf...

An American Execution. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 January 1849

An American Execution.   The Newhaven Herald gives an account of the         execution, in the past year, of L. Hall, at Middleton, Connecticut. Some of the details sound strangely to an English ear. The number of persons admitted within the gaol, and indulged with a view of the hanging, did not exceed 25. Of these, about a third part consisted of the relations of Mrs. Livinia Bacon, whom the convict had murdered. Her hus- band, her brother-in-law, her two sons, and her four brothers were of the number. The   murderer was dressed in a long white robe and   a white cap. When the sheriff asked him if he   had anything to say, he replied, " I have a good deal to say, but dont feel as if I could say it." Seating himself as he spoke, he groaned aloud, but shed no tears. He then called for some water with camphor in it, which was brought him. He looked round rather sulkily, and said, " ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 January 1849

MORE BLOOD-SHED !— Monday (New Years' Day)   another scene of brutality took place, at the back of our office, and we are sorry to relate, that it was com- mitted by the same servant we referred to last week, who expressed himself— "I'll give you blood for sup-   per !' A quarrel ensued between, him and another   servant, when he, very deliberately, took an enormous   thick stick, and beat it about his opponent's head until it fairly broke. In a few minutes after, the mal- treated man (to the astonishment of every individual looking on) thought proper to have a round or two in the neat English pugilistic style, but being rather "brow-beaten,'' from the heavy blows he received by   the ruffian with the large stick, his strength failed with the "bunch of fives," he was therefore obliged, reluctantly, to give up the "manly art of self- defence," his antagonist, at the same time, in the act of running away. We must, in jus...

THE BATURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1349. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 January 1849

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE   SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1849. Our editorial year is now brought to its close,   Among the ancient Egyptians, when the fu-   neral obsequies were performed, an honourable   sepulchre, or a dishonourable casting out, de-   pended on the character which the deceased   had sustained in life. Whether our labours     will meet with approbation or disappointment — with honourable or dishonourable remem- brance, we know not ; but this we know, it has been our study to promote the public good. For the attainment of this just end, we can honestly affirm, we have laboured ear- nestly and sincerely. Beyond this we do not presume to go ; for we have not the arro- gance to proclaim ourselves to be either im- maculate or infallible. Indeed, we are free to acknowledge, there are some things, which, if they were to occur again, we should strive to mend, and some which we shoul...

Who is to Control Emigration? [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 6 January 1849

Who is to Control Emigration? THE Old and the New World are yearning to each other with reciprocal wants. " Take my children,'" says England, teeming with a popu- lation reared in the indulgencies and cravings of civilization, "Give me your children,'' reply the colonies rich in all but that which is here linked to an inseparable poverty— human life. Surely, wants so pressing might be relieved; desires so natural gratified. Where is the hitch? What so clogs the machinery of the State as to impede the working of an obvious and inevitable policy ? We fear that such blame as belongs to the obstruction of colonization must be divided between two parties ; the Government and the public. Each of these expects the other to do everything. The public expects the Government to take upon itself the whole management and respon- sibility of a wholesale emigration ; to force the emigrants, to appoint their leaders, to find their ships, to provide their stores during the voyage, and to procure the...
