IRELAND. TEE STATE PRISONERS. Dublin, Wednesday Morning Nov. 1 [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 17 February 1849
CFrom The Times Correspondent.') TEE STATE PRISONERS. . Dublin, Wednesday Morning Nov. 1, It was rumoured last night that Messrs. O'Brien, Mcagher, M'Manus, and O'Donoghue had arrived in town from Clonmel, for the purpose of abiding the issue of the writ of error at its initiatory stages before the Judges of the Queen's Bench. The- report was unfounded. The prisoners will, however, as a matter of course, come up in -a few days under the writ of habeas corp us, which will issue probably on the open ing to-morrow of Michaelmas. Tenn. ? TUB WRIT OP KRROIt. Without expressing a pci-sonal opinion on ? the sta bility of the grounds upon which the friends and counsel of the State convicts rest their hopes of the successful issue of the writ of error, somehow or other the notion is becoming prevalent that, after all, there is a probability of the State trials of 1848 proving as miserable a mockery of justice as that which just four . years since furnished' so happy an illustration at once o...

Ten. of us subscribed eight dollars f.ich towards the opening of a library, which we named the ' Tradesmen's Library,' we obtained the Governor's sanction, (Sir Alexander Woodford,) who with many of the merchants, gave us their patronage, . and liberal support, in books and money.

Original Poetry. LINES WRITTEN DURING A REGENT VISIT TO BOTANY BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 17 February 1849
Original: Poetry. LINES WRITTEN DURING A REGENT VISIT TO BOTANY BAY. And this is Botany Bay, whose famous name, I've often heard, and in my dawing days, With something of a shuddering fear and dread, 3?or Botany Bay was then a mother's rod, 3Tor little boys who will at times rebel ; Wild men in multitudes, she said, were sent To Botany Bay, and still that horrid bay, That antipodean purgatory, Was ne'er so full but it would hold a boy ! 1 It stands alone in its celeberity, With no competitor to share its fame, A thing of most approbrious notoriety, And infamously famous through all time ! The laughing stock of nations, on whose head, The whole artillery of the world of wit, Came showering down, joke, jeer, jibe, laugh, and pun, What dunce, to have a hit at Botany Bay, But feels himself, as he should be, transported. Some have their fame, the poet says, unsought, All thrust upon their heads, at once, full blown, And so it was with thee fair Botany Bay, Till ye were sick and surfeited...

DREADFUL ACCIDENT. --- FOUR LIVES LOST. A fearful accident occurred about mid-day, on Friday, at the Pennant Hills Quarry, by which four persons lost their lives, and a fifth was so seriously in- jured that serious apprehensions are entertained re- specting his recovery.

LOVE'S LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 February 1849
LOVE'S LANGUAGE. There's a language that's mute, there's a silence that speaks, There's something that cannot he told, There are words can only, bo read in the checks, And thoughts, but the eyes can unfold. There's a look so expressive, so timid, so kind, So conscious, so quick to impart, Though dumb in an instant, it speaks to the mind , and strikes in an instant, the heart. Tins .eloquent language, this converse of soul, In vain wo attempt to suppress, More prompt, it appears, from the heart to controul, More apt the fond truth to express. And Oh ! the delight in the features that shine, In rapture the bosom that melts ; 'When blessed with each other, this converse divine, Is mutually spoken and felt. ... ????? W. A. S.

THE BATHURST ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 24 February 1849
TIP EAJ^HURST ADYOUATE, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24/ 1849; The agitation for an extension of the Fran-' ?chise is becoming general throughout the Colony. The holders of small properties, the tenants of small houses, and a numerous class ?besides, are beginning to feel the necessity. for ?an increase of political power. Hitherto thes right of voting has been confined to a class of men, who, though they may have been and may continue to be distinguished for all the virtues under heaven, are nevertheless ? unfit, from their limited numbers, to fairly' repre- sent the general opinion of the community. It is not right, it is not seemly, it is not for the general prosperity of the Colony, that pdlitical power and influence should continue as an heirloom in the hands of that class. The population of New South Wales, like the population of all other countries, is of a mixed oliataotoi-. Some are pope, others rich, — some afc&vdtunken,, others sober, — -some are idle and dissipated, and ot...
