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

Country News. [FROM OUa OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] CARCOAR. A meeting of the friends of the National Sj^stem of Education was held on Wednesday last, in the Court House, when a very respectable muster of the town and country people took place, Samuel North, Esq., P.M., was called to the chair. He opened the business of tho meeting bv rejulinn- th* minutes of the former meetings connected with the object, and briefly alluded to the purposes for which- they were assembled. A correspondence had been carried on with 'the Board of National Education at Sydney, with tho object of ascer taining what steps were necessary to be taken by the local board, or with whom they were to com municate in consequence of the death of the late Commissioner, Mr. Kinchela. They had learnt from that correspondence that an alteration in the condition of the local board must lie effected,, as it was a standing rule that not more than two of the same religious persuasion were allowed to become members ; whereas, upo...

VILLEBOIS, THE SMUGGLER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

VILLEBOIS, THE SMUGGLER. All the .world 19 acquainted with the his tory of Peter I., that emperor who was a sailor, soldier, turner, mechanician, and the persevering civiliser of a savage people, ex hibiting; in the execution of his plans of re form, the ferocity of the lion and the eve of the eagle, holding in one hand the light which dazzled, by blinding his stupid sub jects, and in the other hand the hereditary knout which compelled them to submit to his vast creations. Everybody hates and admires that man of so wonderful a genius, mingled with' horrible defects; who pos sessed an inflexible, persevering- nature, composed of gold and iron, of diamond and rough stone ; who passed from abject drunkenness to the most exalted schemes. Both an Aristippus and a Pericles at the same time, be left the banquet to assassinate some poor slaves, and resumed his seat at table with a cheerful countenance. He stifled his son like a Finland bear, because that son resembled him only by his vices,...

We have received a long rigmarole effusion, pur porting to emanate from \Viilo\vMurphy, in the course of which she makes certain heavy c/iarges against us, for liaving mis-stated the ? particulars concerning her husband's illness, death, and burial, and her own disgraceful ' 'conduct in, becoming intoxicated, getting into the watch-house, being brought before the 'Bench, and fined, somexuhere about the time of his interment. We would advise Widow Murphy to look after her friends, for if ? their counsels have prevailed upon'her to alloio 7ier name to be a third time unnecessarily dragged before the public', the sooner she relin ?quis?ies them, the better.

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

Miscellaneous Extracts. The Female Emigration Scheme. — A correspondent of the Morning Post, using the signature of '* M. J. W.,1' exposes what ' he cannot help feeling is to a certain ex tent a fraud upon the benevolent public,' in the carrying out of Mr. Sydney Herbert s emigration scheme for the distressed needle women. He has ' heard from the very best authority, that the committee have al most entirely departed from their original intention ; and that, instead of distressed needlewomen, a perfectly different clas3 of females have been selected.' ' I know,' be say's, ' that in some cases young women who have been, and are at this moment, in situations as ladies-maids, with very high wages, have been selected as emigrants, and are about to sail to Australia provided with funds out of the money subscribed for the distressed needle- women. I am pre pared to prove this. I know also, that a party had engaged a passage in a ship for himself and family, and a few days after wards he st...

FASCINATION OF DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

FASCINATION OF DANGER. At the siege of Gibraltar, Lieutenant Lowe, of the 12th Regiment, a superintendent of the working parties, lost his leg by a shot on the slope of the hill under the castle. He saw the shot before the fatal effect, but, was fascinated to the spot. This sudden arrest: of the faculties was not uncommon. Seve ral instances occured to my own observa tion, where men totally free have had their senses so engaged by a shell in its descent, that though sensible of their danger, even so far as to cry for assistance, they have been immediately fixed to the place. But what is more remarkable, these men have so instantaneously recovered themselves on its fall to the ground, as to remove to a place of safety before the shell burst. — Drink- water. The Blasphemer's Death. — There is something so terribly startling in the fol lowing facts, and so fearfully exemplifying the grievous sin and extreme peril of blas pheming the name of the Eternal, that had we not made minute and-...

The manufacturing district accounts are unfavor able. Leeds. — There is no noticeable change in the state of the woollen trade, which con tinues brisk. Upon the whole, perhaps, fewer purchases have been made this week than last, owing chiefly, to advanced prices being asked for cloths by the manu facturers. Bradford. — There is no disposition to buy combing wool except for immediate use, and-the quantity changing hands during the week lias been very limited; nor is there any inducement offered in price to increase...

DESTRUCTION OF THREE HUNDRED HOUSES AT CALIFORNIA BY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

DESTRUCTION' OF THREE HUN DRED HO US 33 AT -CALIFORNIA. BY FIRE. (From the Alia California,, Mav 4.) This morning we were visited by one of those calamitous events which bring ruin and devastation upon hundreds, destroying ina f?w brief moments the accumulated gains of months and years of toil and enterprise. The effects of the great fire in December last had passed away, and with it the sense of danger from the devouring element which was then uppermost in the mind3 ojf all. About four o'clock this morning, the alarm of fire was given in Portsmouth-square, and flrtrnes were seen issuing from the building known as the United Stutes Exchange, lie fore many persons had collected the entire building was enveloped in flames, which communicated with lightningr-like rapidity, t'i the Phoenix Exchange, towards W'h$1i- ington-street, and to the Empire House, upon the Clay-street side.

THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS. (From the Builder.') The ceiling is divided into 18 compartments by moulded ribs, each space being again subdivided into panels. Over the Speaker's chair is the reporters' gallery, formed like the other fittings throughout of oak, and left of its natural colour. There is a metal railing above the front of the gallery. The traceried -openings seen above the Speaker's chair-will -be -filled, -in with: open metal-work, to screen a gallery to which ladies will be admitted. At the bar end is a much larger gallery for strangers. The floor of the House is of iron, perforated for the purpose of ventilation. The windows will be filled with stained glass ; but there are no coloured decorations. The length of the chamber is 62 feet, the width 45 feet and the height 45 feet; nearly one-third less in length, therefore, than the House of Lords', which has the same width and i hekjht, and is a double cube.

CHINA. ('From the Maiiland Mercury.) We have received a copy of the Overland Re gister of the 29th March ; and from its 'Monthly Summary' we make the following extracts j — The past mpnth has been marked by two con spicuous events. The Emperor of China died on the 25th of February last, having survived the Empress Dowager, whose decease was recorded on the 23rd. of the previous month, only 33 days.

NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

NEWSPAPER POSTAGE. The question of Newspaper Postage has al reudy been written threadbare, and if the arguments against the tax do not carry in them sufficient weight to producs the con viction in the minds of the honorable the Colonial Secretary and his colleagues which will lead to its repeal, we must look to the representative portion of the house, for a consummation barely in keeping with the spirit of the age and the necessities of an average civilization. In the present cir cumstancofi of the colony, in which difficul ties almost insuperable stand in the way of the diffusion of education and knowledge, it becomes the duty of government not only to interpose no impediment to instruction or. information, but directly to encourage, to- the utmost of its power, the development and workings of any plan, system, or ma chinery through which they may he con veyed. The more government spends upon dispensing knowledge amongst the popula tion over whom it presides, the less will it requi...

SEEDS OF THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

SEEDS OF THOUGHT. If the stars should appear, one night in a thousand years, how would men adore, and preserve for many generations the remem brance of the city of God which had been shown. But every night come out those preachers of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile. A nation long restrained in the use of its faculties, finding itself suddenly more free, may proclaim that it is happy — which means nothing- then, except that its condi tion is more bearable. Those would be mistaken who understood thereby that its situation is altogether propitious, that no action exercised over it troubles, restrains, or displeases it, that it accepts its condition entirely, maintains itself in it with pleasure, and interdicts itself all change. Every century that passes over a people leaves a different mode of life, different in terests, different wants, from what it found. Irish Heroism. — I canDot forbear men tioning the noble conduct of Mr. Stephen de Vere, as related to...

HARTLEY. Divine Service was - conducted at the Coiirf House, on Sunday, the 7th instant, by the Kev. Thomas Sharpo, Incumbent of Bathurst, when, notwithstanding the inclement state of the wea ther, there was a numerous attendance. It is matter of surprise and regret, that the Church of England Protestants should bo so far behind other leugious denominations in the dis trict, who have their neat churches and resident clergymen. 'We learn, however, that a few zealous and practical men have lately been putting their shoulders to the wheel in right good earnest, and that, they will soon be in possession of sufficient funds to: entitle them to pecuniary assistance from Government for tho erection of a church. .

THE FIRST AUSTRALIAN RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

TEE FIllST AUSTRALIAN RAILWAY. . {From the Maitland Mercury.) Yesterday the turning of the first turf of the first Australian Railway was accom plished, and the ceremony was performed by the daughter of the Governor of the co lanv. the Honorable Mrs. Keith Stewart — in spite of the rain, which certainly in terfered much with the programme of the ceremonies. From an early hour in the morning it was generally perceivable that the day wo.nld be wet; and yet, so strong was the interest excited, that not less than 10,000 persons must have been assembled on the ground and in its immediate vicinity. Nearly all the jpublic institutions and shops were closed. Shortly after eleven o'clock, various lod ges of Oddfellows and Foresters, accom panied by bands and banners, and all wear ing the insignia of their respective orders, began to arrive on the ground. About half past twelve, a guard of honour, with the band and Queen's colors of H.M. llth Re giment, arrived, and took up a position to salu...
