SYDNEY MARKETS. FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 March 1849

SYDNEY MARKETS. FRIDAY, MARCHl 10, 1840. THERR has been a good deal of business doing in wheat during the past week, one house alone being purchasers of upwards of 6000 bushels. Rates have advanced; those generally paid hav ing been from 3s. 6d. to 4s. Id., although a few lots have brought 1l. and 2d. higher. Flour has also advaned, being to-day per 2000lbs. line, £10 10s.; second, £0 1.0s.; and ration, £8 10s. A great demand exists for bran, which is quoted at 9d. wholesale, and 10d. retail. In maizo, the supply, though a limited one, is much more extensive than it has been for some few weeks past, and rates are falling; 3s. 3d to -s. 641. has been given for very good in small quantities, parties who were incolined to purchase largely might do so at 8s. English barley keeps at last week's rates, whilst Cape shews a slight improvement. The same remarks apply to potatoes. Horned cattle continue plentiful, and some of the herds brought down during the week have been in much superior c...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 March 1849

CALIFORNIA. Naws from San Francisco to the 10th January had reached Sydney. It appears that the reports heretofore received of the immense value of the Californian gold field have not been exag gerated in the slightest degree. Mr. Kingsbury, supercargo and part owner of the vessel which has arrived, states that when he left very few were digging, all who had been employed in the occupation having gone to San Francisco to winter. The average quantity of gold:obtained by each person per day was two ounces, whichi may be valued at LU. The, harbour is degRribed: ? hin excellent one, and the climate healthyJ. Board and lodgingtweiuty dolldr,:.a.w.aektlplovisions scarce and dcur; spirits scarcely obtainable, and sold at an extravagant price. Every vessel that came into port was deserted by men and officers -and the whole country is in a very unsettled state. Laboring men at San Francisco are re ceiving three to four dollars a day. Government it was thought would not take possession of the...

AN IMPROVED POLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 March 1849

As IMPROVED PoLISH.-Take a pint of spi rits of wine; add in fine powder one ounce of seed-lac, two drachms of gum-gtaiacum, two drachms of dragon's blood, and two drachms of gum-mastic; expose them, in a vessel stopped close, to a moderate heat for three hours; tntil you find the gums dissolved; strain it off into a bottle for use, with a quarter of a gill of the best linseed oil, to be shaken up well with it.-Note, This polish is intended more particularly for dark coloured woods, for it is apt to give a tinge to such as satin-wood, or air-wood, &c., owing to the admixture of dragon's blood, which gives it a red tinge. Bous.-Female bugs lsy their eggs four times a.year, namely, in March, May, 'July; and Sep,- tember, at each season laying fifty eggs; in other words, producing two hundrid ydiing in the spare of a year. At the age of eleven weeks the young bugs have arrived at maturity, and are ready to become parents in turn. With this data, the following calculation may be ...

OF THE PAPER. OUR Subscribers and the Pub lic generally are respectfully informed that on SATURDAY next, the 24th Instant; the "GOULBURN HERALD" will be permanently enlarged to DOUBLE ITS PRESENT SIZE!!! The increased dimensions will afford ample room for the publi cation of much useful and inter esting information connected with the Mother country, as well as the Colonies, which we are com pelled to omit at present, owing to our limited space. In the enlarged edition the Colonial Market Prices, Arrival and Departure of Vessels, Im pounding Notices, List of un claimed Letters &c. will regularly appear, together with a mass of intelligence equal to any paper published in Sydney or elsewhere. Although the alteration in the size of the Paper will entail a considerable extra expense on the proprietor, he does not purpose to raise the price of the Subscrip tion, which will remain as it is at present. It is to be hoped that the resi dents in the Southern Counties will extend to th...

THE HORRORS OF TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 March 1849

THE HORRORS OF TRANS PORTATION. Mar. G. R. NicuctIs, one of the speakers at the public meeting which was held in Sydney for the purpose of considering the Transportation Despatch of Earl Grey, took occasion to refer to the ter rible scenes that were enacted in times, happily gone bye, when this colony formed one of the penal settlements of Great Britain. Although the taste of the speaker was much questioned in recalling to the me mory of those present the frightful cruelties which were then practised on men who through various, and in many instances trivi:al causes, had made them selves amenable to the laws of their country, we must confess that we per fectly agree with Mr. Nichols that the present is the time to look back upon tlhe:past, and view, without prejudice, the workings of a system with which we are again threatened. In those days the pernicious effect of exhibitions of torture and cruelty was more confined than it would be at the present time: the number of free la borers...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 17 March 1849

THE LATE FATAL ACCIDENT. --- Several mem bers of the late Dramatic Club have kindly vo- lunteered their services for the benefit of Mrs. Pithouse, the widow of the unfortunate man whose awful death we recorded last week. The performances will take place on Tuesday evening next, at the large room at the Harp Inn, Auburn street, Mr. O'Brien having in the handsomest manner placed it at the disposal of the Club. The old favourites, including Mr. Cooke, Mr. Tomlinson, Mr. Valentine, and Miss Kemble, will make their appearance, positively for the last time. The pieces selected are, the farce of the " Disaffected Lovers," and the domestic drama of the " Golden Farmer." The latter piece was only once performed on the Amateur boards, and produced a sensation which will long be remem. bered. The attractive nature of the pieces, the known excellence of the performers, and the cha ritable object of the night's entertainment, will doubtless combine in drawing a good house. An effisient band have...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 March 1849

Miscellaneous' Extracts. ONE OF TIIE BOIuIARA VICTI1MS.-By the last India mail we learn that a report was in strong circulation, in Bombay, that Lieut. Wyburd-one of the ":Bokhara vic tims," to save whom. Dr. Wolff undertook his mission to Bokhara-was still alive, and residing at Kokhan, a voluntary exile. The report also stated that he had turned Ma hommedan, and for that reason was not in clined' to leave the country of his adoption. This: change of faith hardly accords with his previous conduct described by Dr. Wolff, in vol. 1, p. 326, of his "Narrative of the mission to Bokhara," in these words:-" At that time (1835) a report reached the King (of Bokhara) that an Englishman was on his way to Khiva; he sent soldiers (Usbecks) after him, and made a prisoner of that Eng lishman. His name was Lieutenant Wy burd. He was cast into the prison called Sizahjaa (Black Well), and after that into the dungeon of the Nayeb, who treated him in the most cruel manner, and continually said to hi...

THE WIDOW AND HER SON. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 March 1849

THE WIDOW AND HER SON. (Frmn " Sketches by Boz.") THE new lodgers at first attracted our curio sity, and afterwards excited our interest. They weri a young lad, of eighteen or nineteen, and his mother, a lady of about fifty, or it might be less. The mother wore a widow's weeds, and the boy was also clothed in deep mourning. They wese poor -very poor; for their only means of sup port arose from the pittance the boy earned by copying writings, and translating for the booksellers. They had removed from some country place, and settled in London, partly because it afforded better chances of employ ment for the boy, and partly, perhaps, with the natural desire to leave a place where they had been in better circumstances, and where their poverty was known. They were proud under their reverses, and above reveal ing their wants and privations to strangers. How bitter these privations were, and how hardly the boy worked to remove them, no one ever knew but themselves. Night after night, two, ...

HORSES TO INDIA. (To the Editor of the "Launceston Examiner.") [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 March 1849

HORSES TO INDIA. (To the Editor of the " Lluncestou Examiner.") I have for years, through your columns, impressed on the residents the advantages to themselves of breeding and shipping for the Indian market; and now that market is certified, I doubt much if the proper de scription of horse is available. The paltry economy of putting mares to a che',p horse, colonial bred, and inferior in blood and shape,-in place of going to the imported stallions, one ounce of whose blood was worth gallons of these cross-bred ribs, who could at any time have been had at from four to six guineas each mare, has stocked the country with horses of an inferior de scription, certainly not calculated for India. I pointed this out in your columns five years back, but it had no effect, and now that good horses are in request, they are non est. Pri vate speculation will do more for opening the horse trade than a company, which will live its short day and crumble to pieces early. We have too many companies no...

FRIGHTFUL SCENE IN A MENAGERIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 24 March 1849

FRIGHTFUL SOENE IN A MENAGERIE. Last Friday evening something beyond a joke was evidently intended by the large African lion exhibited in H-ylton's mena gerie at Newport. A persdh was accidentally crushed against the den by the crowd hurry ing to see the performances of two leopards in an adjoining den, when the beast thrust out one of his huge paws through the open ing below the cross bar of his grating, and suddenly seized the intruder by the arm, at the same moment giving the bars a terrible blow with his other paw, smashing them aside like straws, and laying hold of the man's back with his formidable claws. The fright of the person thus alarmingly seized was evidenced by screams of terror; he, however, managed to extricate himself. The royal beast became furious, bounded against the bars and about the den, erected his mane, and shot flames of fire from his eyes, while his terrible roar was enough to appal stout hearts. The dismay of the crowd the screams of females and children-...

SYDNEY MARKETS.-SATunDAY, MARCH 17. IMPors.--The principal demand for goods for the interior has now ceased, and already the dulness' of the approaching season is felt: we must not look for much busifiess being done with the settlers for four or five months, their means being limited in consequence-of the low price ruling for this sea son's clip, and the scarcity of tallow, which comes in but -slowly, owing to the drytiess of the season. The grocers are for the most part heavily siocked. The irioumpngers are bare of many articles.

In the course of half an hour subsequently, the roar of the 68 and 321b. carronades of the 11avannah, saluting to the same num ber of rounds, announced that His Excellency had pushed off, in the frigate's barge, from the ship's side. His Honor the superintendent at the same moment started from the beach, to meet the' Governor, but followed in his wake, on por ceiving that his coxswain was makingstraight for the pier.
