MEXICO.—THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 12 December 1846
MEXICO.-THE UNITED' SATES. (From the Tablet.) Unhappy Mexico seems destined to become a prey to the conqueror. By accounts just received General Paredes had at last resolved to leave the capital and take the command of the army on the frontier. In the meantime every part of his dominions appears to be ripe for a revolt or else in actual rebellion, and it was thought that these untoward circumstances might pievent General Paredes acting on the. iten tion above expressed-at least during the-sitting of Congress. The New York Herald publishes a strange. story: of a negotiation between Bishop Hughes and the. President, relative to the sending Catholic chaplains; to the troops employed in Mexico. We hlave seen: no confirmation of it in any Catholic paper lately: received, and we therefore give it on the authority of the Herald. It seems the Catholic Bishops-re cently assembled in Council at Baltimore-demanded "that Bishop Hughes should be sent out, with full' powers, in the light of a ple...

uittlri Extrtacts. -o IaULAND.-At a late meeting of the Repeal As sociation, Mr. O'Connell stated the special ?iants of Ireland. The first was religion, including educa tion; but they wanted no connexion of the clergy with the state. The priests were the people's, and the people well supported them, cohsidering their poverty. They shall have no connexion with the state save that: of loyalty. He wanted to have the Bequest Act re-considered, particularly the mortmain clause. He wanted to have the charter of the na tional schools looked into; and the schools left under the controul of the bishops. He wanted to have the Infidel colleges' ` regtlated by the bishops, and on Catholic princlples. The erection of places of wor ship' for Catholics and Protestants In the poor hotees.'

THE VIRTUES OF MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 December 1846
THE VIRTUES OF MAIZE. (From the Times, April 19.) Sir,-- have been vastly amused• by perusing divers remarlks in the British newspapers andP.'r liament on a Iridian maize;' or what, in our country, we exclusively denominate "corn," other grains having .only the appellations of " wheat," " rye," &c., and not, as here, classed under the general name of " corn." You English and Irish folk are discussing the merits of our " corn" as an article of food, some de claring It will support life, some that it won't, and others, again, that it is nothing more nor less than a subtle poison! I have resided 12 or 15 years in the southern and western states, and along the Mis sissippi from its fall to its outlet, and as in all that extensive territory this is the article of consumption among all ranks, ages, sexes, and conditions, I have some experience on the subject, and affirm, that not only Jis it considered a good article of food, but an absolute luxury; scarcely a western or southern ...

TILE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 16, 1846. THE BISHOP OF AUSTRALIA IN VINDICA TION OF SIR GEORGE GIPPE ON THE "SQUATTING QUESTION. ' .IN the path of our. duty, as public journal ists, we have found many " Hills of Diffi culty" to surmount; but we also gratefully acknowledge, that there are many very conveniently and accommodatingly placed " seats of rest" for the traveller in his reari . some pilgrimage. Perhaps in every desert, there is an oasis which, patience and perse verance could reach. No figure of speech-no eloquence of rhetoric, however, can convey to our readers, a competent impression to excite their full sympathy, for the relief which we have obtained from the anxious aid 'arduous labours of our vocation, by being able to give publicity through the medium of our -columns, to the admirable exposie of the Right *Reverend the Lord Bishop of Aus tralia (Dr. Broughton), in the form of a letter from his Lordship to a private friend in England."

THE MEDICAL PROFESSION AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 December 1846
TIlE MEDICAL PROFESSION AGAITN. IT is again our painful duty to notice the squabbles and personalities, prevalent amongst our numerous class of medical professionalists. Their character is so deeply interwoven with the social welhfre, and domestic happiness of every commu nity to which they find access, that its de terioration is a public grievance of no small amount. That the jalousie a metier will prevail over the esprit de corps ought not, perhaps, to create surprise but when it is carried to such shameless extent as to excite the disgust of the public who are the lookers on-it merits thotseverest retribu tion that the general and inidividual censure can inflict. Every one of -these exceptionable prac titioners will doubtless meet with well merited punishment, by the neglect and contemnipt, with which they will be visited in the private circles which they have an noyed. To their fate we consign them. It is within our province, and more it is our duty (a painful one, as we have sa...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 December 1846
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. Wn have received Cape papers to the 4th November inclusive, from which it appears that affairs at tile Cape are in a more set tied and prosperous state than they liave been for somne time past. "The general opinion," says the South African, " on the frontier seems to be that the war (with the Cnffirs) is nearly over, or at least that there is to be little more open fighting." Peace and harmony seem also to be re established at Natal, and there is no doubt, if peace is preserved there, that that set tlement will soon become a highly flou rishing one. The interior had lately received an abundant supply of rain, which was much wanted; and the accounts present a more cheering prospect for tre Cape settlers than previous advices indicated. A few of the most interesting extracts. from the papers we have received will be found in another column.

PARLIAMENTARY INTEI LIGENCE. (From the Times, August 28.) [oWe are indebted for the following, (being somo daLys later than our previous Intelligence,) to the Australiant of yesterday.] IIousu of Loans, AuOUST 27. Failure of the Potato,.Crop in Ireland. The Earl of Rqden, before th~r ~lShlps adjourncd for the recess, wished to address a few words to the house on a subject deeply interesting to the country, and closely connected with the existence of a large portion of the population of the empire. He regsetted his absence the other evening when Ministers brought forward their measures for the relief of the approaching distress in Ireland. He did not wishl to inquire whether they would be likely to meet the evils which they were intended to avert, but he was willing to give credit to the Government for their anxiety upon this subject. The course taken by the late Government did them great credit, and was the means of preventing much distress. - He felt it to be his duty before Parlia...

Tics LATE PoP?E.-On Monday last, a salemn Dirge and High Mass for the repose of the soul of his late Holiness Pope Gregory XVI., was celebrated in the Metropolitan Church of St. Mary. The ceremony was a highly impressive one, and the LChurch was densely crowded. A pastoral letter from hisfGrace the Archbishop was read on the occasion, but owing to the very crowded state of our columns er are reluctantly compelled to postpone its publica tion until Saturday. THE " INFLEXIBLE."-At a quarter to So'clock on Sunday evening (9th August). Her Majesty's steam-ship Inflcxible, Commander J. C. Hoseason, for the Cape of Good Hope, sailed from Ilarnpool, having taken on board 800 barrels of gunpowder for the troops at the Cape.

(No. 2.) Darlinghurst, 21st February, 1846. i2y dear Sir George, Iassure you,that if you do my paper the honour to think it will do any good, it is quite at your service to make any use that you may deem best, either in sending it to Lord Stanley, or any one else. It is a mere private communication, but written certainly with the design that it should be circulated among my friends, lest they should be persuadel by the Timnes that we had been committing treason, while they all believed we were going on quite correctly. I shall be glad if you can secure its being considered in this light, as I have no particular wish to see it in print; bitt in any way I shall be glad if it can do good. SBelieve me, &e., W. G. AUSTRALIA. His Excellency Sir George Gipps.
NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 December 1846
NATAL. (From the Natalicr.) On Wednesday last, we are happy to say, there was not only a ball and supper, but a harmonious union of the hitherto opposing social elements. This festive meeting, tlherefore, in this early stage of our progress bears an importance and character very dihferent indeed to the ordinary matters of the kind; there was present His Honor the Lieutenant Governor, and we believe every member of the official suite with their families ; they were there as tile lhonoured guests of the people; and their enthu siastic reception and entertainment proves that the people's opposition, up to the present moment, was not against men, but measures. To his Honor the Lieut. Governor personally, as [the representative of our most beloved and gracious Sovereign, every heart there Lbet with loyalty and love, anti every tongue paid sincere and ready homage-in no way or degree chilled or diminished by the private cha racter of Mr. West. .
