THE STATE OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 15 June 1850

THE STATE OF IRELAND. (From the Sunday Times.) Thb death of O'Connell, it was often pro phesied, would open the way to the com mencement of a new era in the history of political agitation in Ireland. The great man— for with all his faults he certainly had the gift of greatness — had so completely ^identified himself with what either was, or what assumed to be, public opinion in Ire land, that he was the presiding genius of ev«ery movement ; he ruled, he swayed, he dictated ; if he did not actually make mi nistries, he had the credit, at all events, of keeping ministries in power — in a word, he wielded the fierce democracy after a fashion that no demagogue has ever done before him, or is ever likely to do again. Grat tan was a leader of the people, but a leader of a different order. He had neither the power nor the versatility of O'Connell, to stoop to those artifices by which mobs are captivated, and by which influence over them is retained. O'Connell had made the Repeal of the Uni...

EXPLOSI[?] ILER IN [?] ILLED [?] AND [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

. AND li^^^H^^^^^^ 1 great was the forceof the explosion that frag ments of the building were scattered in every direction, the windows in the neighbourhood were broken, and a large portion of the front wall of the fated building was thrown with tremendous power into the houses op posite. In fact the building was completely wrecked, hardly one brick being left stand ing on another, with the exception of a so litary piece of wall eight or. ten feet high, as if to indicate what had been.' In the firm of A. B. Taylor and Co., there were about 65 persons employed. In addition to these there were about the same number employed in another firm in the same building — namely, St. John Burr and Co., hatters. In the basement story was the engine and blacksmith's shop, where there were four pairs of bellows and about twelve men at work, besides Crissey the engineer, and his brother. The engine was connected with the second and third stories, where the machine shop was situated, by mean3 of sha...

THE BATIIUilST 'FUEE PRESS. SATURDAY, UNE 29 1850. 'MA.GNA ESX VEMTAS ET PRiEVALEBIT.' POLICE. Thr proposed alterations in the department of police occupy a prominent position in the subjects embraced in the opening speech of his Excellency the Governor. The utter in adequacy of the present police of the colony effectually performing the duties of afford ing the proper security to life and property, which are usually expected from them, has ? -been too clearly manifested not only in the metropolis, but in many of the interior towns. To judge by the police reports and its strictures as to police inefficiency, of the Goulburn Herald, that locality must Ire in a ?state of semi-lawlessness. The highway robberies, shop liftings, and burglaries of Sydney tell too plainly of something wrong in thnt quarter. Bathurstis, in this respect, particularly fortunate, aud. as compared with any other town of eqaal size in the colony, it stands in an enviable position. Robberies of serious amount are...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

Miscellaneous Extracts. Death of the ' Lion Queen.' — We have been recently appealed to by another of those incidents, which from time to time startle us into recollecting how much still remains for the educators of public opinion to do. This last memento ought by its excess of horror to excite every oiie to double diligence. We allude' to the death of the poor girl known in Wombwell's menagerie as ' The Lion Queen'; — who was the other day destroyed by an infuriated ani mal, in the presence of holiday-folks as sembled to ' cheer on her performances,' in its den. Can such a frightful tragedy call for comment in these days ? It is ne cessary once more to point out that, al though the law be powerless to restrain proceedings so disgraceful and demoralizing every person who witnesses any exhibition repulsive to taste, useless as not establish ing any scientific fact, and tempting miser able beings to peril their lives, limbs, or reason for hire, is in part responsible for such catastro...

RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

RAILWAYS! C From the Times January 5. ) Looking at railways as instruments and agents in social and popular improvement, we find that the lines at present in action throughout the United Kingdom furnish respectable and remunerative employment to 53,000 men — a greater proportion of the British population than was ever maintained under arms in England's greatest war and under her greatest commander for the li beration of the Spanish peninsula. Besides these, a body of nearly 200,000 more are engaged upon the construction of works still incomplete ; and though the circum stances under which these labourers were first brought together suggested some rea sonable misgivings as to the possible results yet it- is now a fact attested by abundant evidence that this class of workmen is not only better paid and better treated, but, as a natural consequence, is upon the, whole, better informed and better conducted than any other of its kind ; so that a body of men equivalent to the entire popul...

REMINISCENCES OF A TRAVELLER. BRITISH AMERICA.—(continued) XV [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

REMINISCENCES OP A TRAVELLER. BY WILLIAM M. LEOGBTT, M. A. BRITISH AMERICA,— fcontmuedj (For the Bathurst Free Press.) No. XV. I am going to relate an anecdote that will open up a new world in science, and he that joins, in its ideal exploration, should be fore warned of the following pre-requisites. (1.) No propositions conceded that are purely hypothetical. (2.) No illogical conclusions of ancient or modern sages, to overrule sense. (3,) No humanly established rule of faith to intimidate reason. (4.) The philosophy of the year nineteen hundred and fifty to be anticipated. Such are the preliminaries. Now for the adventure ! At the Provincial head-quarters, a reve rend gentleman personally informed me that, as himself and two others (whom I inti mately knew) were, one day. perambulating the banks of a stream called i{ Keswick Creek,' followed by a dog that belonged to one of the party, — a fresh-water tortoise, or turtle, was descried crawlingat the bottom, ?when the dog immediately...

THE GREAT CONSPIRACY AT ST. PETERSBURGH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

THE GREAT CONSPIRACY AT ST. PETERSBURGH. CFrom the Sunday Times. J When the revolutionary movement was at its heigbt in the rest of Europe we confi dently foretold that it could not fail to pro duce an echo in Russia, and the report was shortlv afterwards snread that a arreat con spiracy, with democratic designs, had been organised in St. Petersburgh, but acciden tally missed its aim. The history of this conspiracy will never, perhaps, be fully known ; but it appears that a number of young men — chiefly, it would seem, of noble families — having, many of them, travelled in the south and west of Europe, and there imbibed liberal ideas, formed themselves, on their return home, into a secret society, for the purpose of subverting the despotism of the Czar. At first they contrived to envelope their Bittings in complete mystery. The houses where they met, their correspondence, their signs, their object, and even their existence thoroughly escaped the notice of the most vigilant police in...

Lind, and the musical asso ciates whom she has selected to accompany her, viz., the distinguished composer and pianist M. Julieus Benedict and Signer Giovanni Beletti, the celebrated and famous Italian barytone of the Italian Opera, of London and Paris, mv agent, to secure such talent, went beyond the amount I had anti cipated paying, but after all, the sums to be paid to these persons, great as they may appear, are not so much as Miss Lind has been in the habit of receiving for her ser vice alone, nor do Messrs.
