FATHER MATHEW'S VISIT TO ENGLAND. To the Editor of the Tablet. German Chapel, Great St. Thomas Apostle, City, May 18, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
FATHEIt MATIIEW'S VISIT TO ENGLAND. 1o thi Editor of the Tablet. German Chapel, Great St. Thomas Apostle, City, May 18, 1843. DEAR AND RESPECTED SIR-Your numerous readers will learn with interest that the very rev. Father Matbew is to arrive in London in the first week of June next. They can rely on that state. ment, which the very rev. gentleman has made him self to me in a letter which I received from him a few days ago. I take this opportunity of publicly mentioning, in conformity with the wishes of the London branch of Father Mathew's association of total abstinence, that one of the rules of this extensive branch pur ports that every priest in England who is a tee totaller be a vice-president of this society, and that to become so effectually, the said rev. total abstain. era have only to take the trouble of sending their respective names and addresses to the general secre tary, Mr. Newman, 2, Great St. Thomas Apostle, City, London. It will be, in my humble opinion, very importa...
THE CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
TH lE CHIIRONICLE. T I, ? ----i ...... .. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1843. "Dte just and fear not: Let till the ends thou alim'st at be thy country'e, Thy Goud's, and truth's." Shakpeare. IRELAND. Suave the Sun first shone on a New-born World to tile present time, such a picture was never pre sented to the contemplation of tie Moralist, Philo. sopher, or Statesman, as that now being exhibited on the green fields of the " Fair land of the West" -poor but patriotic Ireland. The gigantic move ment to obtain a " Domestic Legislature" was at first viewed by the British People and the British Press with a cold indifference, or with a contempt uous sneer. But the people of England seem to be roused at last to the due consideration of the higher importance of this great moral movement. There is one consolation in the announcement of Mr. O'Con nell, that while he lives there shall be no outbreak, no revolution in Ireland. This is what we think no other man in existence could promise or secure; b...
TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
TEMPERANCE. -0-. (From the Tablet.) GRAND TrETOTAL 1)StIONaTItATION AT RalADINO. -The extremely wet day prevented the expectedly numerous assemblage of associations from the neigh. bourhood. Even the Londoners, who had taken' five hundred tickets, returned turce hundred, and no special train took down the metropolitan abstl. nents. The field in which the central tent was pitched, was wet and sloppy, and the persons who assembled had many trials of their patience and fidelity to abide. The grand procession having been duly marshalled by the respective leadese, left the field punctually at two o'clock (the hour named in the bills) proceeding along the Bristol and New. bury road to the tent in the field near Prospect-place. T'he whole distance, through nearly all the streets of Reading, which was upwards of four miles, was not gone over in less than two hours. The tea meeting, in the tent, commenced shortly after four o'clock, at which the whole of its immense area (containing, at the ...
ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
ADELAIDE. Br letters received from the Rev. Mr. Brady, we are glad to learn that he and his companion,the Rev. Mr. Jousteus, arrived safe and well at Adelaide, where they will remain for some time till they can meet with a vessel bound to Western Australia, the scene of their luture labours. Their arrival was like an angel's visit to the Rev. Mr. Benson, who had not seen a brother Priest for these two or three years that he has sojourned in South Australia. After ministering to the spiritual wants of the Roman Catholics of Western Australia, who have been hitherto entirely bereft of all the consolations of religion, they may be able to point out the most likely' plan for the formation of a '. Mission" to the numerous " Aborigines" of that section of New Holland. We wish them every success in their praiseworthy undertaking.

?t3h'ij 3Ftttclligcltc. _0 (From the T )ablt) The Itepealers and the American Anti-Slavery So ciety.-At the adjourned meeting at the Corn Ex change, on the 10th instant (J. Haughton, Esq., in the chair), an address from the Auti.Slavery Society of America to the Repeal Association was read by the chairman. Mr. O'Connell, on moving that the document be inserted on the minutes, and that the thanks of the Association be given to the above Society, declared in the following eloquent passage his fixed hostility to the slavery system :-" I will say, shame upon every man in America who is not an anti slavery man I I do not care for the conse. quences, but I will not restrain my honest indignation of feeling when I pronounce every man a faithless miscreant who doea not take a part for the abolition of slavery (tremendous cheers for several minutes). It may be said that offence will be taken at these words; come what may from them, they are my words. The question never came regularly before ...
PAYMENT OF MEN IN THE GOVERNMENT AND CITY COUNCIL EMPLOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
PAYMENT OF MEBN IN THE GOVERINMENT AND CITY COUNOIL EMPLOYMENT. A suggestion has been made to us, which, if acted on, would enhance the value of these men's wages, without adding a farthing to the employers'expeans; and it is this r instead of paying the whole of their scanty wages in cash, to supply the men with a cer tain quantity of " Rations," at government contract price, which must be much under the price these labourers must have to pay for rations, at green grocers' or hucksters' shops, and to pay the balance of their earnings in cash, in order to enable them to meet their little demands for lodgings, &c. By this plan it appears to us, that 2s.or 3s. per week may be added to their wages. Any plan that may rea souably be expected to better their condition is de rerving of a trial. We hope the hint may be taken up, and acted upon, in the proper quarter, and with the same spirit in which it is offered.
Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
-o Mi. ErITou-In your last there appeared some notes of " Dickens," wherewith in general none can but fully agree. The tendency of some of these remarks, however, seems calculated. I fear, to leave an erroneous impression, or cause a despondency in the minds of many honest settlers, who, while toil ing in the bush for a competency and independen-e, read the Chronicle with avidity, frequently the only book in their hut, and which is made use of to teach their little ones to read and spell. The " note" in question appears to hold out riches as the school in which virtues are best practised, indeed the source of virtue and of every good quality; and poverty in general, or rather the absence of the means of luxury, as a state quite unfit and ungenial to the growth of moral good. There seems to pervade througnout a sneer at the nominally poor, even at marriage in that humble state, which excludes even the industrious and independent man, whose labour enables him to provide his children a...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
--o- AucsrAND.-During the last fortnight, extraor dinary shoals of herrings, hapuka, and baracuta have visited tie Gulf. At the Mlotuaka, large ~,antities have been.canght, and many families have dried considerable numbers. The hapuka, or New Zealand salmon, weighing from ten to fifteen pounds, have been selling for sixpence each during the past week. It is much to be regretted that no persons have yet been found to supply us with fish regularly. It is only when visited by the lMaories that we can expect to get any, although at all times of the year there are abundance close at hand. If salt was less ex pensive, it would also be worth while to attempt to cure fish.- The saw.mill erecting by Captain 'I'homas at theo Mlotuaka is nearly completed. It is expected to be at work in a fortnight or three weeks. - We have before spoken of the limestone burnt on one of the suburban sections about three miles from the town. A brick-built kiln has now for some weeks been erected there, which en...
South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
MOUNT BAR Ren.- We understand that the progress of the settlement at Mlount Barker, during the last season, has been very rapid, aod that a con. siderable number of labouring men who have saved money have joined in taking sections. They do all their own work, and hire themselves to the farmers in the neighbourhood, at times when they want money, or have completed their own operations. It is estimated that this year the increase of culti. vated land in this district will be not less than two thousand acres. This Customs sale at tile Port on Wednesday went off with great spirit. The competition was brisker than usual, and the prices realized as under -brandies, about 4s to 5s; rums, 3s to 7s 6d; Geneva in cases, 2 gallons, 10s 6d; 4 gallons, 10s Gd; superior sherries, 81 a hhd.; port, 14s to 22s per dozen. Cigars, upwards of 80,000, (duty paid) 31 to 41 15as; other goods in proportion.

1at Efctattten's ?Lan,. -o IlonAtLT TowN.-Affairs here still remain very gloomy. Commerce is all but dead, as confidence is completely ovetthrown. It is the general opinion, however, that the worst is pant, although some few colonists declare that the crisis has not yet arrived. I think, however, that matters generally are by no means so bad as they are represented to be ; the general outcry of " no money" is, in my opinion, mrade a convenience of by many, to avoid paying just debts or doing good to their fellow creatures, as I can observe there isbno lack of cash when bargains are to be picked up, by the destruction of the un. fortunate. There has been much confusion at the Colonial Bank ; the shareholders seem divided into two pretty equal parties-the friends of the present management, and those who are dissatisfied. A great many are for dissolving the bank, which is not a paying concern -Launcesto, Advertiser. T'sa MARlsEs.,-- 'here has been a .little im. Ispovement in the market...
Maitland. EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
faitttlantb. -0 EX E COTIONS. (From the Maitland Meorury.) On Wednesday last thesentence of-the law was' carried into effect on the two aborigines Melville and Harry, who were convicted at the last assizes of the murder of Michael Keoghue, at Stanhope, near Glendon. The two prisoners were since the time of their condemnation attended by the Rev. Mr. Wilton, of Newcastle, and there was reason for believing that they had profited by his instruc tions. They were brought up to Maitland for execu tion by the steamer on Tuesday last, and lodged in one of the empty boxes in the new gaol yard, where they were attended by the Rev. Mr. Wilton and the Rev. Mr. Campbell. They both expressed their sorrow for the crime they had committed, and ap peared to lend a willing ear to the ministrations of the rev. gentlemen who attended them. The time for their execution was fixed at twelve o'clock, and previous to that hour a large concourse of people had assembled in front of the gaol wall at East Mait...

City Council. MONDAY, OCTOBER 23. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
Qfty tronncil. -o MonDAY, OCTOBER 23. Present: The Mayor; Aldermen Allen, Brough ton, Flood, and Burdekin; Councillors Holden, Hlunt, Chapman, Hill, Agars, RIyan, Neale, Hol. linshed, Brown, Thurlow, and Jenkins. BUILDING ACT. The TowN CLERn having read the minutes of the last meeting, Mr. HILL presented a petition from Mr. James Melville, setting forth that he had snwittingly com mitted a breach of the building act, by building a wall only fourteen inches thick, instead of eighteen, and praying that no proceedings might be taken against him. Alderman BnonouTon moved that the petition be received, and referred to the District Surveyor. Mr. HILL seconded the motion. Alderman ALLaN thought that this matter was one in which the council could not interfere, for as the petitioner had admitted his having committed a breach of the building act, the provisions of that act, by which a fine was imposed for such a breach, could not be set aside. No object could therefore be attained by referri...
THE PROGRESS OF REPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
TIHE PROGIULSS OF REPEAL. - (From the Tablet, May 20.) By this time our English renders will have had leisure enough to ponder over the Anti-Repeal de. clarations made by the ministers in both houses of parliament, which we published last week almhnost without comment. l'lhis week they will be able to read, if they have not read them before, several other matters of some little importance towards a clear un derstanding of the position of this great question. Of these things, unquestionably the first in import. ance is the official declaration made by the Bislop of Ardagh, Dr. Higgins, that thie entire Irish hier. archy-that every Catholic bishop in Ireland is in favour of the repeal movement. This declaration we have given at full length in another calumn, be. cause we regard it as of inconceivable importance to have this fact known and understood. In 1830, says Lord Rodeo, neither priest nor bishop was in favour of repeal. We suppose that, like most things that fall from Lord Rodeo...

FINE ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
FINE AOTS. -o (From thue 'ublet.) flosa, or ST. PrTlE's.-i'here is not, and there never has been, any work of art in this metropulis more worthy of patronage than this model of the Great Basilica of St. Peter's at Rome 'The artist, Andrea Gambassini, of Tuscany, has in this model shown that the genius of his countrymen endures beyond the lapse of time or change of circumstances. Fourteen years did this indefatigable artist devote, with perseveling labour and extraordinary ingenuity, to the ploduction of an exact model of the greatest architectural triumph of modern ages, one of the wonders of the world, and the great central temple of the Catholic faith. Who thatwould notdesire tosee St. Peter's t How few that have the means of visiting Rome, and how little can be known of the mighty work of Bramante by absolute inspection of the original, which may not be learned from a repeated and careful inspection of this admirable model. The subject is, exteriorly-the entire church, with its g...
