DISALLOWANCE OF THE VAGRANT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851
DISALLOWANCE OF THE VAGRANT ACT. The advice officially given to her Majesty . by her chief , Colonial Minister, to withhold her approval from the 'New South Wales Vagrant Act' was very impolitic at the present critical epoch in colonial history. It betrays on the part of that high functionary, KOt only perverseness of temper, but great error of judgment, and a total want of fore sight. The disallowance by Earl Grey, in the name of the Sovereign, of such a local enactment, affords a flagrant proof of the gross defects existing in the relationship between the Colonial Legislature and the Supreme Colonial Department, exercising ts influence both i» the Councils of the Monarch, and in the Imperial Parliament. It would especially at the present juncture have been wise scrupulously to avoid such v interference. So indiscreet a display of its power from the Downing-street office not only creates reasonable dissatisfaction and gives unmerited offence to the virtuous and honourable portion o...

DR. NEWMAN TO HIS ANGLICAN FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851
DR. NEWMAN TO HIS ANGLICAN FRIENDS. ° There is but one set of persons, indeed, who inspire the Catholic with especial anxiety, as much so as the open sinner, who is not peculiar to any communion, Ca tholic or schismatic, and who does not come into the present question. There is one set of persons in whom every Catholic must feel intense interest, about whom he must feel the gravest apprehension, viz., those who have some rays of light vouchsafed to them as to their heresy, and as to their schism, and who seem to be closing their eyes upon it ; or those who have actually gained a clear view of the nothingness of their own communion, and the reality and divinity of the Catholic Church, yet delay to act upon their knowledge. You, my dear brethren, are in a very different state from those around you. You are called by the inscru table grace of God to a great benefit, which to refuse is to be lost. ? You can not be as others ) they pursue their own way, they walk over this wide earth, an...

A CATHOLIC CHORAL SOCIETY. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851
A CATHOLIC CHORAL SOCIETY. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. ) Gentlemen, — Until lately Australia had little to boast of respecting her progress in literature, science, or the fine arts. Her inhabitants were de Yoted to the accumulation of wealth, and Mammon was the goddess they unceasingly worshipped. But a brighter day has dawned upon them. A rapid progress has lately been made in the cultivation of those arts and sciences which tend to refine and ele vate mankind. The taste for music in particular has rapidly in creased among all classes of society within the last few years. My present communication is with the V7PTV r\f mvinrr u fi i vf i-i c*v lmnnlco +n i'\ia ctnA-tr r\£ that science,' and of bringing before your Catholic readers the advantage, if not the necessity, of* es tablishing a society for the cultivation of choral music. # , ,. I was much gratified a few evenings ago with the performance of a congregational society, con-' ducted under ITullah's system. Consid...

HYDE PARK BILL. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 30 January 1851
HYDE PARK BILL. . . (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. ) ' Gentlemen, — Amongst the many ' literary curiosities ' presented to the public by the Corporar. tion of- the city of Sydney, in the reports of its de liberations we are in the habit of receiving, none is more wondrously amusing than the debate on 3Jr. Councillor' Weekes' motion for closing Hyde Park. No man in New South Wales, who. lov.es to con template what may be called the contemptible side of human nature, the follies and the failings of his fellow men, is necessitated to expend his money in obtaining the productions of a Dickens, a Smith, or a Warren ; for here, at -a comparatively very shm;1 expense, we have characters, such' as. these obser vers of society never dreamt of; whose thoughts, like those of other great men, would fill volumes— whose actions (together with articles on ' science and superstition,' displaying equal ability) partly iill the columns of the Sydney Moruiiia Ilera'd. If ever this learned b...

ORIGINAL COKRESPONDENOE. THE M0R15T0N BAY TRANSPORTATION ISTS. ( To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. ) Gentlemen, — In all public measures affecting' the commonwealth of the British dominions, it has been always a recognised prerogative of the labour ing and mechanical class, that they should have a voice in the administration of state affairs. By due representation, and under judicious restrictions, an infringement of this prerogative has, in former | years, produced most terrible consequences, desolat. in' whole regions with the fearful evils of civil war — destroying the quietude of the domestic hearth— and creating antipathies, dissensions, and prejudices that ages could not conquer. In this territory where the principal portion of the labouring 'class spend their time mid the forest wilds, feelings of isolation and dependance take possession »of the mind, to which in the mcfther country they were entire strangers. ' In many cases the occupation of ife is one of continuous ...

THE APPARITION OF LA SALETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 30 January 1851
rruv. APPAEITTON OF LA S ALETTE. The following is a translation of a letter in the Ami de la Religion :?— My Dear Friend, — You encouraged me to visit the mountain of La Salette, and I have descended therefrom this very hour. I trust, therefore, you will not object to my giving you an account, in all simplicity, of the various observations I there made and the impressions I thence received : 'tis only Jii.it I should share them with you. I undertook this pilgrimage, I must confess, with no favourable anticipations. I wish by no means to detract from the merit of the different narra tives that have been published on this subject, and which I had carefully read ; but their tone, their enthusiasm, their vivacity, had rather inspired me with prejudices against what their writers sug gest. I have passed nearly three days, partly at Corps, partly at La Salette ; and my personal impressions were, I must again repeat, without any charm, almost without any emotion, and I am now on my way bac...
GODLESS COLLEGES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 30 January 1851
GODLESS OOLLEttm No credit can be given to the authenticity of a paragraph in the Herald of Tuesday morning, purporting to give the names of some of the Irish Catholic Bishops who are said to have subscribed to a memorial to Rome against the condemnation of the Queen's Colleges. It is true that some of these Bishops were formerly disposed to give .the Colleges a trial,, on the supposition that the Government would adopt the suggestions and improvements proposed by the Bishops in the rules and discipline of these institu tions. But their lordships, seeing that their amendments' and suggestions were un heeded by the Government, and that in the words of the Holy Father himself there were serious and intrinsic dangers to the faith and morals of the Catholic youth in Che constitution of these Co'leges, a decree was passed at the National Synod unani mously condemning these insidious nurseries of irreligious and infidel education. The ' memorial' alluded to was to pray the Holy Father not...
