EXHIBITION OF WORKS OF ART OF ALL NATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 June 1850

EXHIBITION OF WORKS OF ART OF ALL NATIONS. Whilst this subject is engaging the atten tion of every nation of the civilized world, and many of the districts of the colony, we seldom hear any allusion to it, made by the good people of our own district. Port Ade laide, Maitland, Moreton Bay, and other places are all ranking some sort of prepara tion for this glorious event (for in no other light can it be considered) of the nineteenth century, and are enumpraiing the naturwl and industrial products which they will b? enabled to send for the inspection of the congregated enterprise and intellect of na tions. Bathurst is not the last on the list i of the colonial districts in point of wealth and intelligence, neither ia it so much in ferior to the rest in natural and industrial productions, that its' people should be pre vented from contributing their quota to wards the coming exhibition of the resource.5* and industry of the world. We hope, at all events, that at the coming of the great...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 June 1850

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Eastern Marshes. — A correspondent of the H. Is. Advertiser says — ' Having occa sion to be in the district of the Eastern Marshes on the 3rd of May, there I beheld one of the most awful scenes I ever have seen. About 3 o'elok p.m. of the above day, there fell a shower of ice, clear as crys tal, each piece admeasuring from three to four and a half inches in circumference. This continued only a few minutes. Thun der was heard at a distance. The clouds were greatly convulsed, and a noise as of a mighty wind was heard as at a short dis tance — when suddenly .upwards of forty acres of forest trees were taken up bv the roots or broken in many pieces, many of the trees being from three to five feet in dia meter, and had stood very close together. Several other spots of three to ten acres were torn up or broken down in the same manner, and, what seems strange, the most of this occurred on what is called low or meadow land, near to what is called Mount Posonby, on the roa...

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 June 1850

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE. The following, in connexion with the sub ject of Capital Punishment, and which is now attracting much attention in Britain, will be read with interest. It is but one among many instances which might be ad- J duced, how little dependance caa be placed on circumstantial evidence, by too implicit a reliance on which many an honest man has been hanged. We quote from the Ex aminer : — ' We have more than once remarked on , the fallibility of presumptive evidence, and a fresh instance has just occurred. A man named M'Gowran, who had just received a sum of money, suddenly disappeared, and his property was the next day found in the possession of a man and his wife with whom he had been living, and with whom he had last been seen, in circumstances extremely suspicious. As it was certain that these persons had robbed M'Gowran, and as it was certain, too, that M'Gowran had not come forward to complain of the robbery, which it was reasonable to suppose he would surely h...

MURDER NEAR, THE DARLING. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 June 1850

MURDER NEAR THE DARLING. Last Wednesday, a report reached town that a murder hud been committed near the Darling, and the rumour went so far as to assert that the murderer's name whs Ha milton, and that he was the the same vil lain who had massacred a man named Jarvis a hawker, his companion, some months ago, on the same river. We have not noticed the recent outrage before, because when the intelligence first arrived, the Police Com missioner made a request to the members of tho Press, that the report should not be circulated, as it might interfere with the operations of the police engaged in effecting (he apprehension of Hamilton. The cap ture of this supposed murderer affords ano ther instance of the courage, vigllunce, and skill of Inspector Alford and Sergeant major M'Culloch, who went in pursuit. They began the chase from Adelaide on Wednesday last, about 9 o'clock a.m., and on that night reached the Murray, at the crossing pluce on the Melbourne route, where they were joined b...
