ACTIONS FOR LIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 December 1846

ACTIONS FOR LIBEL. (From the Friend of China.) We take it for granted that such an appeal is in no ease made to the Court from vindictive mo tives, and that the object is, not to inflict oppressive damages and costs, but simply to relieve chairacter fiuom obloquy, to stand pure and unspotted before thle public, and to.prcvent tlae intll:en?e 6f opinions ,bring w.eakenkr by any charge of moral delin Suency. But in the present stiat of the law of libel, nrthing can be more uncertain, and therefore no thing lets satisfactory, than the decision of a court of law in a case of libel. The best cause may be lost by a l'egal iquibble, anild the worst u;:avy bcome triumphant by some uinexpcetetl I:gal refinement. If the complainant should happen to win his suit, he may atitl find that it is decided on points whichl leave the mannin question of its merits untouched; and that lie has obtained damages against his oppo nent without clearing up his own character. We have .seen danl:mges given agai...

VARIED COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 December 1846

VARIED. COM.1ENTS. (From the NottihsiNha Review, Aug. 14.) The word Postponoement will the most accurately describe the immediate policy of theMinistry. Every thing which can possibly be put off, is dismissed for consideration next session. Bright promises are mude of justand generous measures, though nothing very definite is stated; and in reference to all those points which most interest the public at the present time, the people are imploied to " Vait a little longer." Nor in all this we can discern nothing very unrea sonable. It is perhaps disappointing to the ardent and enthusiastic, but at the same time we cannot feel surprised that some time should be required, to mature plans, to make the requisite arrangements, aind to decide on the line of policy best calculated to work for good.. The Whigs ask for time, and we think that on the whole the people are quite pre pared to give them time; of course taking for granted that when such time has expired, something really broad and s...

THE LAND QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 December 1846

THI LAND QUESTION. (From the Morning Chronicle, Aug. 25.) Were it not that the remedy might bVWirsre thn the disease, we could recommend, an antidote to those, numerous demands for colonial representa tiop that'in all places, and from all quarters, are beginning to make themselves attendI to,. To the long list' of complaisants and petitioners, whether from the North or South,,the Pacific or the Carib bean Sea, frpm garrisons like Malta, or from felon ries like that of Van Diemen's Land, we would ex hibit the working of the constitutions that have already been.granted. We would show them the reality of what they have demanded, the practice of what they have so earnestly sought for. We would undeceive them in their over-estimates of, its value, and substitute for the beautiful ideal of an indepen ]dent local legislature the more unpalatable reality of an unexpected amountof Downing-street machinery and Home interference. We would paade before them living Instances of granted constitut...

CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 December 1846

CHAPTER XI. "When they are feasting and drinking they shall be conSumed as stubble."---Natem. i., 10. F. My son, besides those passages that ] have iquoted froin the s~cred criptures there are many others, a few of which' I shall:quote for your instruction. S. Thank you, father, I shall be most 'happy to hear'them. F. The Apostle St. Peter, in cautioning his disciples against the temptations of .the devil, says--' Brethren be' sober." Now the reason of this holy admonition is founded upon the words of our Redeemer, wvhich I have already given you, namely-'' Take theed to <yourselves, lest your hearts be ,overcharged with surfeiting and drunken ness, and that day comeo upon you sud denly." .Unless a .ian be given to sobriety it is folly for him to expect a participation in the grace of God, and, consequently, impossible for him to acquire eternal-salva tion. Though the Son of God has died upon the cross for his sake, thbugh.the Holy Ghost has descended upon him at his bapt...

3rticlialtitral lttetliigcIto -0 ST. MARTIN'S CHURCH. TO THE EDITORS OF THE "LIVERPOOL MERCURY."   GENTLEMEN,- My attention having been directed to a letter in your last week's paper from the Rev. Cecil Wray, in which he charges me with " deceit," in reference to the conversion, to the Catholic Faith, of one of the choristers of St. Martin's Church, it seems proper for me to say a few words in reply. Every one must b ,pcrfectly aware of the difficulty of Mr. Wray's position. as a clergyman of the Established Church, -and cvrry conversion from his congregation to Catholicism, must considerably increase the difficulty, by exciting suspicion in thie minds of those persons who, as he expressed it, are "eager to catch at anything which can raise a pre   judice against St. Martin's Church,"-that Mr. Wray, himself, "Romanizing," or at least, that his   congregation are led in that direction. In order to allay this suspicion, he wishes to make it appea...

MILITARY FLOGGING. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 December 1846

MILITARY FLOGGING. (From the .Nottingham Review, Aug. 14.) The result of the discussion on military flogging, is anything but satisfactory to the opponents Qf that barbarous mode of punishment, though in some respects, and mori particularly when viewed in con nexion with the declaration of the Duke of Wel ]ington in the House of Lords, it furnishes matter for congratulation. A prompt, and on the whole graceful concession has been made to public feeling and opinion, which we feel bound to recognise it the spirit of respect which it deserves. Though the Commander-in-Chief does not think that the " cat" could be safely abolished at present, he allows that its abolition is most desirable, and that it is inva-. riably the endeavour of the best and mosteiperienced officers to have recourse to it as little as possible. Now this admission, coming from a quarter so con= servative as the Copmander-in-Chief of the British forces, is most important to the cause of military reform, and virtually...

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 30 December 1846

djrttiob Bxtrarto, --- EN?OLAzIn ne TnP. EYES OF FRANcS.--England is assuredly the country which presents the most striking contradictions. Our neighbours boast of being the elder ions of modern civilization and liberty, yet, nevertheless, there are to be found in their customs and manners things that would make even Tartars blush at. They talk of the sweetness of their domestic llle, their respect for married women--and yet a husband can chastise his wife with a stick, provided it does not exceed. a certain thickness, or, what is still worse, may carry her to the market with a cord round her neck, and sell her to the highest and best bidder. They move the three kingdoms, and agitate Europe, to procure the emancipation of the blacks,.and yet look with a cool and indilelrent eye upon 0,000,000 of Irishmen their countrymen and neighbours-writhing in all the agonies of hunger and nakedness. They create laws to punish a man for ill-treating his horse or his ass, and cause.the unfortunat...
