THE BATHURST "FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 13,1850. "MAGNA EST VERITAS ET PREVALEBIT." OUR FIRST RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 July 1850

THE EA.THURST 'FREE PRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 13. 1850. ' MAGXA EST VERITAS 13 T Ya^EVALEBIT.' OUR FIRST RAILWAY. The most important ceremony to which, in our estimation, the colonists ever bore wit ness, was performed on Wednesday, the 3rd instant. The beginning of a new system of things was perceived in the formality of turning tlie first sod, performed by the Hon. Mrs. Keith Stewart, on that auspicious day, from which,' if the same indomitable energy, skill, and perseverance mark the Anglo Saxon race in New South Wales, as else where, may be dated another and a brighter era. There are those who are disposed to shake their heads despondingly at the pros pect of our Railway career,— there are others who would rather^ witness the failure of the project than that theiiominous forebod ings should be disappointed, or their soil Boaked wisdom be proved narrow-minded folly; and there is a class, the most hope ful, the most enlightened, and, we will add, the most rational of the whole, who lo...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

CALIFORNIA. - * New Diggings at PLA.CERViLLB.-Mr. Vinal'Daniels, County Judge elect for El Dorado county, called in upon us ou Sa turday, last, and informed us that some im portant discoveries had been made in the neighbourhood of Placerville, (Hangtown.) A large sink, or low flat place, which ex tended for some forty or fifty rods between two ravines, was prosecuted by two diggers (one named Albert W. Bee, the other a Mr. Isaac R. Querean,) and found very rich. It has a rocky, hilly bed, which indicates that water formerly extended over its sur face, and connected with the ravines on either side. There is at present about 100 men digging at this place ; the number is rapidly increasing, and the prospect is that the whole will soon be taken up. The rules adopted allow each man fifteen feet sqruae. The gold obtained is coarse and lumpy, Mr. Daniels assures us that a large number working in this place are averaging a pound of pure gold per day, and this un der great disadvantages for ...

AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTIONS. (From the Express.) In the general views of colonial govern ment enunciated by Lord John Russell we entirely concur. ' It appears 'to me,' said his Lordship, 'that in saying that wher ever Englishmen went, there they should enjoy English freedom and English institu tions, our ancestors acted at once justly and wisely.' The general principles of colonial policy avowed by ministers are unexceptionable. .The question of the separation of the colonies from the parent state is not now before us ; we are called upon to decide how colonies which still continue integral parts of the empire are to be governed. The true way of governing them is to let them ' enjoy English freedom and English institutions,' — let them have self-government in every thing except those matters which are always reserved for the management of a supreme central government — which even in the re .public of North America are reserved by the congressional government. The minis terial principle...

Bathurst Court of Requests. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

Batfcurafr Court of Requests* This court commenced its sittings on Mon day last, the Magistrates present being- G. Rahken, Esq., and W. Lane, Esq. There Were 60 cases for adjudication^ from which wehave selected the following for publica s tion :— | ROOD V. NICHOLS. I This case, in which Mr. Rodd sued the; | defendant for the sum of £10; as damages I sustained for breach of contract, arose out if of a prosecution formerly instituted by the I former against the latter, for harbouringhis \ son* and thus detaining him from his (Mr. I Road's) service.

Count? v HewSi CAHCOAR. TS .17 33, 3O S 32. . An unfortunate man named John Dwyer, was dis covered lying dead in the bush, within a mile- and a half of this township, under circumstances which leave no doubt but that he hud been brutally mur derou. Without going into the particular evidence of the (liflcrent witnesses examined on the inquest — which was held at Mr. al'C'rae's, Traveller's Rest Inn, on Monday last, before S. North, Esq., Coroner of the District, the following are the facts of the case : — Mr. N. Connolly, junior, deposed that he was returning from Canowindra on Sunday afternoon, and when he had proceeded about one mile and a half from Carcoar his attention was attracted by the barking of a dog, which dog he knew belonged to John Dwyer, that; he followed the djg to where the body of deceased lay, and from the appearance of blood upon deceased's mouth and nose, he supposed him dead, but did not dismount, as he was driving some young' horses ; that he rode home as quick...

THE GOOLWA AND PORT ELLIOT RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

THE GOOLWA AND PORT ELLIOT RAILWAY. (From the Adelaide Observer.) A signal triumph awaits Sir Henry Young in this discussion, if hia Excellency will only exercise the virtue of forbearance. ] A question which was seriously and very Eangniuely mooted earlier than 1838, can riot fairlv be dismissed in 1850, merely be cause certain colonists have had occasion to change their minds, without reverting to opinions formerly expressed, and the va lidity of which stills remains unshaken by : any practical discoveries or experimental ; disclosures. The South Australian Gazette of February ' 25th, 1833, thus describes the great natural advantages of this province compared with those of New South Wales :— ' The unexampled extent of our luxurious ranges of pasturage opens the finest field for the growth of wool and the breeding of stock : at the same time that the internal water communication we possess brings the market all but to the very door of tho most distant farmer. The agriculturist and ...

A CURIOUS CONTRIBUTION TO TELE GREAT EXHIBITION OF 1851. 'Isaac Ironside' writes thus to a Shef field paper : — ?' The public have not gene rally been made acquainted with the dis. covery of a race of men in the interior of Africa, having tails. ' Some months- ago, Colonel, du. Couret, who had already pene trated far into Africa, was about to set put on a new and extensive exploration of fiye years, under the special auspices of the French government, and at the charge of the treasury. The Minister of Public In struction asked of the academy of Sciences some instruction for him, which was read at one of the sittings.

THE CULTIVATION OF COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

THE CULTIVATION' OF COTTON. (From the Times.) It ia, we fear, only too probable that the crop of American cotton will this year , be scant enough to increase the price of that most necessary ingredient inthe manufactur ing prosperity of this country, and, although the actual deficiency may possibly be. less than is feared, yet the results will doubtless supply a sufficient realization of the con tingencies which have been so often descri bed as involved in our present system of action. Almost all that is said respecting the importance of our cotton imports may be literally credited, for so vast are the in terests concerned that it is scarcely possible to over-state them. Nearly as much de pends upon the cotton as the potato crop ; and the failure in the former admits, besides of no corresponding compensation from pri vate charity or public benevolence. Yet, speaking generally, it maybe said,. that for the whole of this staple import of England we are helplessly dependant on two prov...

TRANSPORTATION AND IMMIGRA TION. Copy of a Despatch from the jliyht Honorable Earl Grey to the Governor Sir Charles Fitz Roy. Downinsr-stree't, 22nd December, 1850. Sir — I have the honor to acknowledge your despatch, No. 84, of the 5th May last, enclosing reports on the question upon which I had requested information, whether it would be desirable occasionally to send emigrants direct to some of the minor ports of the colony, and containing the opinion that Twofold Bay should for the present continue to be supplied with such emi grants as it may want through Sydney ; but that three ships in the year might with advantage be sent to Moreton Bay. 2. This despatch has been communicated to the Commissioners of Emigration, and the opinions which it conveys will be duly borne in mind in regulating the future course of the service. 3. Independently of such emigrants as it may, receive through colonial funds, More ton Bay will be entit'ed, in consideration of the number of men sent to it wi...

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

British Extracts. Her Majesty's Ship 'Ganges' Struck by Lightning. — By accounts from the Medtierranean it appears that H. M. ship Ganges was struck by lightning in January last, near Athena. The electric discharge fell in forked streams on the foremast, pro ducing lnminous coruscations, or spouts, as the sailors terra them, nearly half way down the mast. No damage, however, en sued. The conductors fixed in the spars carried off the great bnlk of the discharge withont the least inconvenience, not a rope yarn was damaged — another most import ant practical illustration of the great value of lightning conductors judiciously applied. In 1838 the Rodney, a similar ship, but not so protected, was struck by lightning, off Malta. The ship was on fire aloft for half an hour, Two men were killed and two more severely wounded. The very hearts of the spars were ruined, and the ship re tained under an expensive repair at Malta for a month or six weeks, thereby causing a serious inconvenience to...

THE AMERICAN HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 20 July 1850

THE AMERICAN^HOITSE^tMB' -BEPEESEN- As we enter tho hall there is some- one speaking; but from the multitude of points against which the sound is broken the reverberations are so confused that it is some time ere you can exactly fix upon the spot from which tho speaker is addressing the house. This is all the more difficult from the con fusion which prevails upon the floor, and the noises which are constantly breaking but all over the house, Tho orator is straining every nerve to be heard, but in vain. Sometimes his voice lapses into a perfect screech, but to no purpose ; he might as well' try to be heard on the raging beach, as to get. audible utterance in. the midst of that un ceasing hubbub and concatenation of all conceiv able sounds, which rise and swell from the body of tho house, and break into petty but multitudinous echoes against tho galleries, pillars, capitals, and cornices which decorate it. The speaker's efforts to command silence are praiseworthy, but useless. The rin...

'The individual who -thus lost his life had long been a notorious character, a3 a confirmed bully and a first-rate shot. His adversary, with whom, as it appeared, he had an inveterate and long-standing quar rel, had been properly warned by the duel list in the usual form, that he intended to ' use him up ' at the first convenient op portunity. This, of course, put bis intended victim on his guard, and he being a some what nervous man, his guard was propor tionately watchful. I can imagine few si tuations much less agreeable than that of expecting to have, at any moment, the thrust of a bowie knife at one's side, or a pistol discharged at one's head. Talk of Damocles ! his situation was a pleasurable one, ...
