DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
DOGS. Dogs are so very common now, That many want destroying, We cannot keep them under cow, They always are annoying. Bow ! wow ! wow I The natives now are most invouged. For mutton they are howling ; The enr is now a common dog, In kitchens he is prowling. Bow ! wow ! wow ! In Bathurst there are sharping dogs, That always are a biting ; &nbsp; In Sydney too, are quarrelling dogs. That never keep from fighting. Bow ! wow ! wow ! The sharping breed are very sly, They sneak upon their prey ; The royal dogs set up a cry, &nbsp; &nbsp; And the puppies run away. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Bow ! wow ! wow ! R.S.R
NEWSPAPERS. OLD Man, thou sayest well [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
NEWSPAPERS. Old Man, thou sayest well : &nbsp; From newspapers the world instruction borrows; Truly, like the Arabian Tales, they tell Of joys and sorrows. Here stands the marriage-list — Some linked to bliss, and some to trouble mated ; And here the record of whom earth hath missed, ' Deeply regretted.' A row of little strangers. Who may hereafter glad as many hearths ; Doubtless cold Malthus, fearful of its dangers, Shrank from the list of. births. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A favoured corner, That should be sacred as a rainbow's hues ; And sacred 'tis, having as an adorner The poet's muse. In big-typed observation Then crowns the whole, the ' Leading Article ;'' A mentor that gives wisdom to a nation— - At least a particle ! Unto what system grown Politically, whatso'er our choice, The newspapers have a familiar tone, And all should hear their voice.
Poetry. REFLECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
Poetry. REFLECTION. No more will break the purpling east, Upon a cloudless sky, For mine has been one bitter feast, And pleasure's fount is dry ! The quiet of a thinking mind, With mis-spent youth has gone ; O ! where shall I a haven find, When tottering age comes on ? Will mem'ry lead me back to scenes, Of reckless boyhood then, And place me in those dark ravines, Of crime and sin again ? Or shall I reach the mountain' s top And look with dread below, Upon the Hell I heeded not, Whence all my sorrows flow ? O God !— if penitence can claim, A respite from the scene : Teach me to love thy hallow'd name, And hale what I have been. Let not the sin I leave behind, The burden of the past, Return to me in age and find, It's bitter fruit at last ! C — .
GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
GEELONG. ('From The Geelong Advertiser. Jan. 20.) An Old Hand. — Dennis Conner, a well-known character (on the Police books), was placed before the Magistrates, charged for the eighth time with drunken and disorderly conduct. The fellow's defence had a touch of ingenuity in it after all ; for at once admitting the chief constable to be quite correct in both his averments, to wit, his inebriety on the previous night ; and also on seven other occasions, he disputed the validity of the magistrate's right to inflict more than a first offence penalty, as he had not been brought up for a year before. Chief Constable. — "What ! do you mean to say you &nbsp; have not been to this office for twelve months before ? Why here are the dates you were brought up — " Connors. — " I mean to say, I have not been up be— fore his Worship for this year afore ; that's what I mean to say." &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Carman. — " But I will soon show his Worship you have," Conn...

A Regular Poser. — A few days since a respect- able man named Hill, residing at the 'Springs,' was arrested upon a warrant and incarcerated in the watch- house, he having thought proper to retain in his pos— session a load of wool, the property of G. S. Brodie, Esq., on the plea that he was not bound to part with it until the amount due to him for bringing the wool, from the interior was paid. The case was remanded, &nbsp; for the purpose of obtaining an opinion from the &nbsp; learned crown prosecutor as to whether from the nature of the agreement which had been entered into with Hill, the latter stood in the light of a hired servant or a licensed carter. Hill in the interim was liberated, not even being required to enter into his own recognizances to appear when called upon. Yesterday morning upon Mr. Hull who had initiated the pro— ceedings coming upon the bench and perceiving Hill in court, he remarked " Mr. Hill, I hear that you have given up the wool." Mr. Hill...

MURDER.—A Wife killed by her Husband. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
MURDER. -- A Wife killed by her HUSBAND (From THE MAITLAND MERCURY) An inquest was commenced on Wednesday (January 24th,) last, at the Waterloo Inn, West Maitland, before J. S. Parker, Esq., coroner, on the body of Margaret Nunn. At a late hour the inquest was adjourned for further evidence till Monday, when it was resumed ; additional evidence having been taken, the jury re- turned a verdict that the deceased, Margaret Nun, was murdered by her husband, John Nunn, striking her on the head with an iron pot. John Nun was then fully committed for trial for wilful murder. It appeared by the evidence that John Nunn was a hawker, in the habit of travelling about the upper districts of the Hunter, and occasionally coming down to Maitland. On these journeys his wife and four young children accompanied him : and latterly his brother, Simeon Nunn, a young man recently come to the colony, had joined them . Simeon Nunn, who gave his evidence on this occasion in a rather singular manner, appeari...
Police Office. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
Police Office. The Police business has been very slack this week, there being no drunkards, aud nothing done on Satur- day, Monday, and Tuesday ; there were a few cases on Wednesday. WEDNESDAY, 31st JANUARY, 1849. Before the Police Magistrate, and T. J. Hawkins, Esq., J.P. Murphy v. Halfpenny. — This was for a breach of the Hired Servant's Act. Mr. Dowling appeared for the defence, It appeared that defendant hired with Mr. Ford, for the term of six months, on the 1st August last, as a shepherd; on the 10th inst. he went to the plaintiff, who is an overseer in the employ of Mr. Ford, of Kelso , and asked him to come and count his sheep; which plaintiff did, and told him they were all right, he said he was glad to hear it, as he did not intend following them any longer, he accordingly left his employment. The defendant urged for his defence that he was unwell, and wanted medical assistance, and it was not likely he would abscond from his service within three weeks of completing his ti...
TO MY PAPA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
TO MY PAPA. My dearest Papa, you must not be vex'd, 'When I ask for the things, that below are annex'd ; For if I don't get them, full well do you know, That neither to Church nor to Town can I go. A muslin-de-laine, I must have first of all, And two pretty prints, neither scanty nor small ; A fine pair of shoes, would give joy to my heart, For like my young friends, I should wish to be smart. A few pair of stockings I want, you must know, And four or five yards of fine bleached calico ; And then some good needles, and cotton I crave, Some gimp and some piping I also must have have. And a new pair of scissors is wanted, I find, And handkerchiefs, four, if you would be so kind ; I want some new ribbons, my bonnet to deck, And in winter a boa, to put round my neck. And one of these days, dear Papa, I'll be certain, To ask for a dress of' that beautiful tartan, Which I've seen in the shops, it is cheap too, they say, .?And really it's elegant, handsome and gay. A veil, you remember, yo...

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
THE BATHURST ADYOCATE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1849. We observe great movements taking place in the Metropolis on the Franchise, and we sup pose our Bathurst people will be engaged in the ' move.' At present we shall say little on the subject. But our columns will be open to either one party or the other who may choose to give publicity to their opinions. Of course, nothing but the question of Franchise — its na ture — its present condition — its efficiency and applicability, pro — or con — the necessity (if any) and the utility — of an alteration. If the question be calmly discussed, it will do our correspondents good — the rust is accumulating, and needs to be rubbed off — our young friends may hereby get a step higher up the ladder of civil and political knowledge — there's a good many Whys and Wherefores and Therefores in this question that will bother the knowing heads. It's very easy to talk, and make speeches, and all that sort of thing — but how does a man look in print, and a...
Revival of Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
Revival of Transportation. In 1847, a petition was signed by the majority of the representative members of the Legisla- tive Council ; by the leading merchants, traders, and storekeepers of Sydney ; by al- most every large landowner, stockholder, and other employers of labour in the rural dis- tricts of the colony; was forwarded, through the Hon. F. Scott, M.P., to the Queen ; pray- ing that the principles set forth, in the said Transportation Committee's Report might be adopted and carried out by the Home Govern- ment. The Government Gazette of the 26th of January, 1849, contains the following despatch from Earl Grey :-— Downing-street, 16th August, 1848. SIR, — I have the honor to acquaint you that I have received from the hands of Mr. Francis Scott and some other gentlemen, a numerously signed Petition, pur- porting to proceed from all the principal classes of employers of labour in New South Wales of which document I enclose a copy for your information.

Colonel Thompson on the Copper Ore Duties. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 3 February 1849
Colonel Thompson on the Copper Ore Duties. On Monday the 17th instant, was a dehate of consider able interest on the reduction of. the duties on foreign copper. The protectionists, joined with a number of the Cornisli members, put the question on. the old foot ing, of the injury done to British industry by the in troduction of 52,000 tons of foreign copper.. It is wonaenui to , me, tuat noooay sioou up 10 stay, mat these 52,000 tons were just as much the production of British industry as any that are raised in Cornwall. For is it not the fact, that you at Bradford, or your neighbours at Leeds make this copper, when you make what it is got in exchange for, as truly as if it dribbled out from one end of your , machines ? And are you not as good as Cornishmen, and liavs as umch right to live ? This then is a leading point for reply ; and why the manufacturing interest should not make this answer as often as the protectionists put forward the other proposition, is a secret I cannot pene...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 10 February 1849
SOUTH A17ST21AX3A. f Abridged from The South Australian Register.^) FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. On Thursday evening, pursuant to advertise ment, a meeting was held at Mr. Pedder's school-room, Hindmarsh, ?which was numer ously attended, entirely by the villagers. Mr. Mahon was voted to the chair bv ac clamation, when he at once commenced the business of the. evening by reading a placard which, had been circulated through the villages of Hindmarsh and Bowden. He then dwelt on the importance of the subject which had called them together, namely, the Rights of Labour, and the Freedom of the Press. It was want of information that deprived their fore fathers of their rights. By information they might recover what their fathers lost, and by information they could teach their children to preserve and increase the advantages which, by their exertions, and the fearless advocacy of an honest press, they would, with God's blessing, transmit to them. (Hear, hear.) The interests of the working men wer...
Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 10 February 1849
Poetry. ' If any man say, J love God: and hateth his hrbt?ier, that man is a liar.' I thought ? ah ! me, 'twas but a thought — I lov'd and fear'cl my God : ? My promises arc turn'd to nought : Too wide the path I trod ! — ? Forsaken by the ' Great Unknown,' I tread the 'wilderness alone. I thought that I, my brother lov'd : But when the stranger csune, i Her subtlety too quickly prov'd, Mine was but love in name. For I am taught to feel no more, Tor those I thought I lov'd, of yore ! It must not he — O lot my heart, It's proper dictates hold ; To me 0 God thy grace impart, Thy mercies to unfold : — And teach me- from this hour of need, To fear but Thee, — and love Indeed ! C— .
