THE RESOURCES OF THE COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 June 1850
THE RESOURCES OF THE COAST. CFrom the Geelong Advertiser. J Whenever circumstances occur which we think may at all increase our colonial pros perity, then are we roost anxious to give them publicity, entering as largely into de tail as our snace will nossiblv admit, and leaving those who may be at all interested in the matter, to carry our suggestions into operation. A few monthsago, we published four articles on ' Our Mineral Resources.' Those articles have had the desired effect. The Industrial Association at Melbourne has quoted some of the reasons there al leged as an inducement for the prosecution of mineral researches, and they have led to the establishment of ' Mining Associations,'^ both in that town and Geelong. The ob- ' jectof the present article is, however, to point out many other resources on the southern coast which only require industry 'with moderate capital to make available as objects of colonial wealth — the majority of which have been pointed out to a party for ...

TUB AEOLIAN HARP. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 June 1850
THE AEOLIAN HARP. Br William M. Leqoett, M.A. (I know not that my Friend had placed tho Instrument at my Chamber Window, until awakened by its en trancing sounds.) Whence theso molting midnight vespers ? Pausing now in sweet suspense — Now, again, liko angol-whispors, 'Wooing tho enraptur'd sense ! Aro Aerials bequeathing CaiTols of celestial birth ? Aro tho dear departo.1 breathing Back -their Iove3 to kindred earth ? Thus I dream, whilo Reason slumbers, And the thrilling thought restoro3 Long bomoan'd and cherish'il numbers, ITrom tho unseen spivK-shores ! I awake, to trace tho living — 'l'is some instrumental skill Thus unto my casomont giving Soumls that scein'd so mystical ! Sounds, to sympathy appealing, Passing eloquence of words ; As If sentiment and fi-oling Were enshrin'd in silken chords ! Zephyrs stir tho apt machinery — 'Wild vibrations float around— Fairy song and starlight scenery Spell tho solitude profound !

THE BATHURST FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEIBIT." THE GOVERNORS SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 June 1850
THE ,-BATHURST 'FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1850. ' MAGNA EST VERITAS ET ril^SVALEBIX.' THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. The present session was opened on Tues day last by a speech form Hia Excel lency, which will be found in to-day's number. His Excellency's speech commences with acknowledging the blessings of a bounteous providence in the abundant supply of the necessaries and comforts of life. He alludes to the continued increase in the material resources of the colony as a subject of congratulation, and points out as illustrations, the increase of nearly five mil lion pounds of wool exported last year over the previous one, and an increase in the quantity of tallow exported of 56,000 cwts. The prosperous condition of the public revenue is shown by an excess of £96,000 in the past year, over the preceding one, which is accounted for by an increase in the Ordinary Revenue of upwards of £38,000, and in the Territorial Revenue of upwards of £57,000. He announces the intention, of Her Ma jes...
THE NEWSPAPER TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 8 June 1850
THE NEWSPAPER TAX. If the state of public opinion with respect to the tax upon newspapers is to be estima ted by the sentiments of the colonial press we may reasonably conclude that it is uni versally unpopular. Not one voice has, within the range of our observation, been raised in its favour, and we believe that no pen has as yet, been wielded in its justifi cation. It may, by some be argued that the opposition of the press, arises from in terested motives — that the hindrance to the circulation of newspapers, the expense of exchanges and the inconveniences arising from the new regulations have called forth their hostility. Supposing we plead guilty tj such a charge, we should like to know why newspaper proprietors are to be denied the privilege, which is accorded to any other class of the community, of advocating their interests. They are not the least im portant body in the community, that their welfare is to be trifled with, without a re monstrance. Their mission is not so unim ...
