CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

CALIFORNIA.   ('From the People's Advocate.)   We have seen some parties who have re- turned from California by the Eleanor Lan- caster yesterday. Considerable progress was making in improving the streets of San Francisco, which had during winter become quite impassable. Sickness, principally from dysentery and ague, prevailed amongst the inhabitants who were ill protected from the weather. A law had been passed by which all foreigners at the mines were sub- jected to a tax of twenty dollars each per month. Very few of the Sydney emigrants had accumulated property at the port. Messrs. Crockston and Ward, formerly of this city, who were keeping a board and lodging house, had erected large premises for their business and for which they refused an offer made to them of £4,000. Immense supplies of sawn timber were pouring in from the Oregon territory to the northward, and fully equal to the demand, while Ame- rican and Norwegian houses in frame were being offer...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

IWTiscellaneouG Extracts. Dr. Lang and his Victims. — To the the Editor of the Argus'. Sir — In looking over the names, in the Morning Herald of this day, of those who voted for the different candidates at Geelong, I perceived those of sixteen passengers by the Larpent, which I believe constitute the whole of those who were entitled to vote for that district, four teen of whom plumped for the Dr. ; one divided with Lang and Mercer ; one divided with Lang and Ebden, being I think a suf ficient refutation of the many calumnies cir culated, that holders of land ordeis by that ship had been swindled and deceived by the Rev. Dr. I have no doubt, should you be enabled to obtain the names of those polled at Colac, the return would be equally favor able — I am, sir, yours obediently, A Pas senger per ' Larpent' and one not Db ceivkd. — Melbourne, June 15, 1350.

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

FRANCE. (From the Times.) Exactly at a quarter to It o'clock six mayors, half of Paris, and half of the banlieu appeared on the perron, or flight of steps, of the Hotel de Ville. Each wore his tri coloured scarf, the emblem of his authority, and presented himself bare-headed. Ihe one in the centre was M. Monin, the mayor of the 6th arrondisement, and the doyen or senior of the municipal authorities. He held a paper in his hands, and read from it the names of the successful candidates, now the representatives of the department of the Seine, with the number that voted for them. They are the same as I trans mitted this morning-, viz. — Carnot, 132,797; Vidal, 128,439 ; and De Flotte, 126,982. After reading this list he cried out Vive la RepubHque, and waved his hat, as a signal to the people to- respond to the cry, which the greater part did, but without adding any epithet whatever. The Mayor then reati the names of .the unsuccessful candidates who had obtained the highest number of vo...

Country News. KING'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

QouEWy Slews. [FROM OUa OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] KING'S PLAINS. The Fitzroy Hotel lately erected by Mr. Doyle, was opened on Monday last, and certainly is a credit to the district and to Mr. Doyle as it is not only a substantial and commodious building, but one of the neatest and most comfortable looking Road Side Inns in the Colony. On the occasion the worthy host had provided an ample Luncheon for all who chose to partake of it. A Saddle having been advertized to be run for there was a goodly muster of the lovers of sport, and some spicy looking hackneys to contend for the prize. Some little difference of opinion avose aa to what horses should be considered hacks and al lowed to run, but it was ultimately agreed, that no horse would be considered eligible which had ever won an advertized prize — and that any objection to the horses en tered should be made before they started. In consequence of this, Puzzler and Steeltrap, were not allowed to run — and the following horses came to the ...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 6 July 1850

Local Intelligence. 1 'Wellington News. — A paragraph appeared in our last issue, under the head of Wellington News, in which an individual of respectable con nexions is charged with fraud, in attempting to pass valueless cheques upon the people of Molong. The case was investigated bv the Moloner Bench ori Monday last, and it then became apparent that there was not the slightest foundation for the charge. The party alluded to was consequently acquitted, without a blemish upon his character. It has always been a rule with us to exclude in decency, in any shape, from our columns ; and it was, therefore, with feelings of regiet, that on the day succeeding the publication, we perceived that the paragraph had found a place in our sheet. In extenuation of our error in thus breaking a fixed rule, we plead ignorance of its contents ; as by some means or other, in the hurry of business, the paragraph found its way into type before under going inspection. The second charge, wo are happy to sa...

THE BUDGET. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

THE BUDGET. (From the Spectator, March 1 6.) \The chief business in the House of Com ,.rnons(last night was the financial statement of the year, by Sir Charles Wood, in com- ( .mittee of ways and means. Sir Charles re-entered the house, after his recent illness shortly before five o'clock, amidst emphatic cneers rrom memoers on every siae. lie appeared perfectly recovered ; but he be spoke indulgence for inaccuracies that might creep into his statement, on account of his indisposition. His estimate of the income, he should re ceive up to the 5th April had been £52,262,000; he now expected that his receipts up to that date would be £50,583,351, [less than his estimate by 361,652,000]; giving a surplus of about £2,285,000. The Merchant Seaman's Bill' will impose an additional £30,000 on the Consolidated Fund ; the arctic expedition a further outlay ; and he proposed to increase the vote for the new House oi: Parliament : in all probability £150,000 for these addi tional expenses.

Foreign Intelligence. GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

Foreign Intelligence. GERMANY. The German constitutional farce is expand ing itself into a comedy. The Erfurt Par liament — its pretensions and intentions — was simply a ludicrous idea, without plot or combination. But we have both now. We have a Erankfort Parliament in opposition to the Erfurt Parliament. We have a Mu nich ' Three-Kings' League,' and a Berlin ' Three-Kings' League.' To the first be-, long Bavaria, Saxony, and Wurtemburg — to the second Prussia, Saxony, and Han over. It may seem strange that Savony should belong to both ; but, stranger still, Hanover is uncertain whether she will be long to either, and Prussia is said to be mortally offended at her conduct. Out of such confusion who but a German can create order ? ? Both projects provide for a federal government— a federalParliament — and the regulation of the nationality of Ger many. Both distinctly define the number of deputies to belong to the several states. But the first plan embraces all Germany, while the sec...

Country News. WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

Country News. WELLINGTON. Our tribe of blacks have been very much afflicted by the death of one of their num ber, who was known by the name of 'Joey Turner,' alias 'Long Joey.' The deceased was a powerful fellow, measuring 6 feet 3 inches in height, very active, notwithstand ing1 a halt in one of his legs, which was occasioned some years back by his having fallen from a tree whilst in the act of cutting out an oposum. It was truly pitiable to witness the heart-rending wails and lamentations of the Gins, during the whole of the night of the 7th inst. (the night on which he died.) The following morning preparations were made for bis in terment, which took place in the afternoon of the same day, he was buried in Dr. pur tis's paddock, it being his dying request to 41 be lai'J by the side of his relatives and frieiidB in the doctor's paddock.' The solemnity of his mourners was truly worthy of remark. A smile has not been seen to pervade one of their countenances siacS the time of his de...

THE PRESIDENT OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

THE PRESIDENT OF FRANCE. The pale reflective look of Prince Louis is well known to those who have frequented London within the last five or six years. The seven years which he passed in prison did much toward the formation of his cha racter. That ' No giant frame sets forth his common height,'1 is quite true ; but it is equally true, ' That they who pause to look again, See more than marks, the crowd of vulgar men.' His countenance expresses a great deal of character and decision ; and, but for a cer tain vacuity of expression, might be termed highly intellectual by his pariizans. He is neither easily depressed ; he has passed the age when men's passions are mest easily roused, and attained that when prac tical ambition, and the mateiial advantages of life are most prized ; but then among men of reflection, ambition turns toward the result of great actions, rather than toward the mere objects of personal aggrandise ment. In his conduct he is remarkably simple, unaffecting and undate...

IRELAND AND FREE TRADE.— THE "NATIONAL" QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

IRELAND AND FREE TRADE.— THE 'NATIONAL' QUESTION. CFrom the Weekly Chronicle. J There was a fair trial on Monday of the intrinsic strength of the 'Protectionist' cause in the Irish capital. The meeting, unlike the great landlord demonstration, was not packed or exclusive. ? Indeed the ?advantage in this respect lay, if on any side, with the small loaf gentlemen, as ap peared from Mr. Butt's ingenuous confes sion of his efforts to induce his tradesmen acquaintances to come and cheer him with their sweet voices. There was free admis sion for the bread-tax votaries, there was influential canvassing for their presence ; but there was likewise free admittance for the honest public voice, which, unorgan ized'as it was, was even thus an over-match for the fanatical zeal of selfishness, all drilled and organised. The first resolution enunciated' two of the important truths which Irishmen should never omit from their contemplation of this protection movement ; — viz., that the move ment is j...
