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

COUNTRY COURTS. The Molong Bench have got a peculiar system of drilling their drunkards into so briety. Instead of confining them within the contracted limits and. close atmosphere of a gaol, as is the custom established by law. thev cive them the benefit of the fresh air and a trudge of some 60 miles to Ba thurst, as a punishment for their violation of the rules of temperance and the laws of social order. After confronting Mr. Chip pendale, and holding a short confab with him, he sends them about their business, to trudge back another 60 miles, should they happen to be Molongites. So that an un fortunate wight is liable, if he cannot pay the fine of £2, to be sent on a pil grimage to Batburst, (we were nearly saying Mecca,) upon the chain, to take a look at that delightful heap of bricks, over whose internal economy Mr. Chippendale presides. Whether this is intended as un innovation upon the ordinary system ol punishments for misdemeanours, or whether some son of the sea has sugges...

WHITE WOMAN DISCOVERED AND RESCUED FROM AMONG THE AUSTRALIAN BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

WHITE WOMAN DISCOVERED AND RESCUED FROM AMONG THE AUSTRALIAN BLACKS. Mr. M'Gillivray, naturalist, of her Ma jesty's ship Rattlesnake, has written to a friend (Mr. Bute Jukes, of Penn Fields, WolverhamptoD), by whom an extract from his letter has been sent to the Editor of the Daily Neios. The letter is dated Cape York (N.S.W.) Oct. 16, 1849. After re ferring to the departure of the Rattlesnake from Port Essington, a wisely-abandoned settlement, Mr. M'Gillivray thus continues. ' I resume my letter, but not the thread of my discourse, for I have to tell you of the most eventful occurrence of the cruise. * * * News came that a white woman was alongside, brought off from the shore. Had I been told the blacks had opened fire on us from a mortar battery on Albany Island, or that one of them had brought off a correct solution of the quadrature of the circle made out in the native language, I would as soon have believed it — yet it is true. The woman had been wrecked three or four years ago...

NEWS OF SIR J. FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 29 June 1850

NEWS OF SIR J. FRANKLIN. [We copy the following1 extract from Bell's Life in Sydney, but fear that the news 13 too good to be true.— Ed. B.F.P.] :-— ' In a late Mauritius paper a paragraph appeared, stating, that one of Sir John Franklin's Lieutenants had reached Panama, bringing news of the safety of that adven turous, hardy, and talented explorator. The account went on further to state that Sir John had discovered the passage so long sought for, and thereby solved the great geographical problem which has for cen turies excited the attention of the scientific of all nations ; and from repeated failures, has almost been deemed by them impossible of achievement. The Benefit op Forethought.— Amongst the Council Papers published this week appears this letter from Captain Owen Stanley, H.M.

Xiocal Intelligence. The Seuenaders. — Concerts were given by Howard's company on Friday and Saturday nights at Mr. Read's Inn, and on Monday and Tuesday at Mrs. Black's. There must have been nearly 200 individuals present on Monday night, and al most that number on Tuesday. .There was a very fair sprinkling of the ladies (God bless them !) whose bright eyes added to the interest of the evening's amusements. The songs and conun drums went off with more spirit than on any pre vious night, and several of the songs were raptur ously applauded, amongst which were Mr. Upson's ' Life by de Gaily Fire,' Mr. G. B. Howard's 'Rosa Mae,' and 'Boatman's Song.' 'Don't believe in Stephen,' by Mr. C. V. Howard, was sung with much life, and loudly applauded by the audience, by whom he was called upon to rope.it it. We must not omit to notice his performance upon tho ' tambo,' which he handled with won derful dexterity. His chin, forehead, elbows, fingers, knees, and feet appeared to be equally at h...

AN ADVENTURE IN THE HUDSON'S BAY TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

AN ADVENTURE IN THE HUDSON'S BAY , TERRITORY. (From M'Leati's Tioenty-five Years in the Hud son's Bay Territory, J I had a still more narrow escape in the month of March ensuing. I had been on a visit to the post under my own immediate charge, termed head quarters par excellence ; returning to the post alone, I came to a place where our men, in order to avoid a loner detour occasioned bv a hierh and steep lull coming close to the river, were accus tomed to draw their sledges upon the ice along the edge of a rapid. About the middle of the rapid, where the torrent is fiercest, the banks of the river are formed of rocks formed almost perpendicularly from the water's edge ; and here they had to pass on a narrow ledge of ice, between the rock on the one side, and the foaming and boiling surge on the other. The ledge, at no time very broad, was now reduced, by the falling in of the water, to a strip of ice about eighteen inches, or little more, adhering to the rock. The ice, however, seem...

THE BATHURST MEE PRKSS. SATURDAY, JULY 6. 1850. ' MAGNA EST VEIUTAS ET PHiEVAI,EBIT.' SYDNEY ELECTION. After his defeat at Port Phillip, the Rev. Dr. Lang has made his appearance in Syd ney, and aspires to the honour of represent ing the Metropolitans in the Sydney Council Chamber. He has issued his address, and harangued a public meeting upon the prin ciples of his future political career. In the former he anticipates that objections may he raised as to his eligibility on account of his being a minister of religion, and meets them by pointing out numerous instances in which ministers of Religion have occupied seats in the legislative assemblies of Eng land, America, France, and other places of smaller note. Amongst the rest, he alludes to the constitution of the British House of Peers, in which Bishops are allowed a seat On, these grounds and with such precedents for reference, he does not see any reason that the cloth he wears should debar him from Legislative honours, but confess...

Council Papers. THE GOVERNOR'S FINANCIAL MINUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

Council Papers. THE GOVERNOR'S FINANCIAL MINUTE. 1 . The Governor transmits to the Coun cil the Estimates of Ways and means and of Expenditure for the year 1851, and also a Supplementary Estimate of Expenditure for the present year. 2. On comparison of the revenue of 1849 ?with the Ways and Means submitted to the Council, on the 2nd May, 1848, it will be remarked, that the amount actually collec ted in the former year, 1849, exceeds that estimated by the sum of £22,600 7s. 6d., exclusively of £5809 2s. 3d., collected at Port Phillip, from 16th to 31st December, 1 840, but not included in the Colonial Trea surer's accounts for that year, making to gether £28,409 9s. 9d. It is also satisfactory to observe, that, so far as can be judged from the receipts of the first four months of 1850, the Estimate of Revenue for the same, which accompanied the Message No 35, of 17th July, 1849, ?will be fully borne out, notwithstanding that, from 1st January, 1850, the rents of tolls in the county o...

English Intelligence. MEETING OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

Sag-lisJi Intelligence* MEETING OF PARLIAMENT. (Prom the Liverpool Mercury.) The great Protectionist struggle (great irom the very intensity of force with which it has under the circumstances, been maintained) is now transferred to an arena where reck less assertion, violent language, and per sonal vituperation will not stand in the room of plain fact and sound logic. Very i different are the checks and responsibilities t of addressing the grand inquest of the n'a- i tion from those of palvering to an agricul- i tural meeting; and we incline to believe 1 that more moderate and respectable mem- t bers of the country party really rejoice in 1 the circumstance of an embargo being laid on the tongues of some of their friends. It is difficult to see what wild extremities they i might not else have gone, judging by the 1 display of insane ferocity made at the re cent Protectionist meetings held at Swaff ham in Norfolk, and Oakham in R utland.

BILLIARDS. CHAMPION MATCH AT MANCHESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

BILLIARDS. CHAMPION MATCH AT MANCHESTER. ('Manchester Guardian. J This great match, which has been pending for some time, and which, as the time of its decision drew near, caused extraordinary in terest in this town, came off on Friday evening, the 11th Januarv. in the lentnm room of the Manchester Athenaeum. The competitors are both celebrated plapers, Mr. John Roberts, the marker of the Union Qlub, Manchester, and Mr. Starks, a crack American player. The match was to play the American, or four ball game, 1000 up, Roberts giving his opponent 100. So great was the confidence of many of the members of the club in their English champion— who, by the way, is said to be the best player in Europe — that they bracked him freely before the game at 6 to 4. In en deavouiing to give a brief description of the game, we must premise that we are not conversant with it, and do not pretend to understand its technical phraseology. Not withstanding1 the terms of admission were somewhat high, there w...

THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR AT WASHINGTON. From Washington we have accounts of Sir Henry Bulwer's reception by the President on the 24th ultimo. His Excellency was introduced by the Secretary of State ; and , „ Sir Henry after delivering his credentials f '')-n§ said : — ' Sir, I need not say that it gives me the sincerest gratification to be the bearer of the credentials which I have just had the honor of placing in your hands. ' Permit me to say that in coming to your country I do not feel that I come as a foreigner to a foreign land. Our nations speak the same language, spring from the same race, and seem especially entrusted by Providence with the same glorious task of illustrating the Anglo-Saxon name, by ex tending the best interests of civilisation through two great divisions of the world. ? 'I have an entire confidence, Sir, that our two Governments will act with the most perfect concord in carrying out this great design ; and for my own part I un feignedly assure you, that I cou...

THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION. C From the British Banner.) THe subject of ColonialConstitutions ought by this time, to be tolerably understood, since our Statesmen have not had a little experience. Experience, however, does not always bnner alone: with it the instruction, for practical purposes, that may be sup posed, The constitution which has been prepared for. South Africa provides two Legislative Chambers, and both of them elective, there being no difference between them other than a higher suffrage, and a more protracted term of office for the Su perior Chamber. This point of double Chamber is one upon which there is a va riety of opinions ; but from all we have heard and read, we hesitate not in giving our vote for the double in preference to the single Chamber. It seems to us to thicken and strengthen the fabric of the Constitu tion — to divide interests, and to bring par ties into something like a oeneficial an tagonism. It gives more weight and mo mentum to the vessel of stat...
