SYDNEY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

SYDNEY ELECTION. The nomination of a member to supply the vacancy in the repre sentative of the City Council, by the resignation of Dr. Bland, took place on Tuesday at the Hustidgs in Maequaria-place, The attendance on the whole was as large as we have ever seen assembled on a like occasion, and by the time the proceedings con cluded there must have been between four and five thousand persons ipresem. v^onsiuenng me ssmlb oi me luuaniy irom me laie weatlier and the neglect of reparation by the Corporation, the mud being more than a foot deep, it is nor. saying too much in asserting that the event excited a good deal of interest,, A few scuffles caused by struggling for front places, and a good deal of noise by the partizans of the respective candidates, as the opposing one, or his supporters, addressedjjthej electors, comprised the extent of the disorderly proceedings of the day.

EXTRAORDINARY PROJECT.—RAILWAY TO. INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

EXTRAORDINARY PROJECT.— RAILWAY TO; INDIA. (From the ' Times.') The- distance between England and India is of a very fabulous and artificial character. It used to be called' 1.0,000,12,000, or even 15,0.00 miles. The time- con- sumed in traversing it has varied from nine months to three.. Sir Arthur VVellesly modestly stipulated for four,. as- the limit of the period within which there should be always a steady and constant communication between Portsmouth and Calcutta. At the present' time the journ8y from Bombay, to Southampton is usually per formed in some thirty-five or forty days,, and there seems to be abundance of room for still farther shortening the transit. For, after all-, India is only some few hundred miles further from us than the IX. States. From Spithead to-New York it is 2,820 miles ; from Ostend to Hydera bad, on the Indus, it is only 3,805. oMost certainly no body has ever yet looked upon one of these journeys as being only 900 miles longer than the other; but if ...

THE POOR MAN'S FOUR EVILS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

THE POOR MAN'S FOUR EVILS. By Dr. Beard, of Manchester. |f . The term ' poor' is ..often misunderstood. He is not $£ poor that has enough for his wants. He will never be .fj poor who keeps his wants within his means. He will ajfjf always be poor who allows his outgoing to exceed his in H come. The working classes are often called ' the poor.' || But there is no necessary connexion between hand-labour M and poverty. iV! any working people, ' having enough H and to spare,' are truly rich. Poverty is confined to no m rank. It is lound in the higher as well as the humbler H classes. Every man is poor who lives beyond his means. H Every man will become poor who squanders his means. H If a man, having a thousand a year, lives after the rate of If eleven hundred a year, he is on the high road to poverty ; §§ ' ? as much as the labourer who, earning fifteen shillings a I Week, wastes three or four of it in drink. And small I; though the income of the latter is, yet by avoiding waste, i. and...

The expediency of withdrawing the vote of £6000 a-year, which has now for four years been held at the disposal of the Home Government for this purpose without effect. 2. The propriety of appropriating £6000v a year out of the General Revenne of this colony, as a bonus to any person or body of persons who will accomplish this great object by private enterprise. 3.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.), G-kntlemhn,— I hail with joy and deeply-felt satisfaction, the appearance of the first number of your paper. Very often, for the last twelve months, did I feel much to the quick, upon beholding ' the manoeuvres of an anti-Irish faction, carping and sneering at both our creed and our country — holding up to contempt and ridicule the orphan children of Ireland, whom Providence afflicted and a kind and indulgent government sent amongst us to obtain consola tion and comfort. Yes, seeing all this, I could not but indignantly exclaim -we are a degenerate race ; unworthy of the glorious in heritance of faith which our ancestors bequeathed to us in faltering accents, whilst the scaffold reeked with the blood of the martyrs— that do not possess a sterling, independent press of our own. I was further forced into these reflections when I looked around and r»w evprv section of our countrvmen and co-religionists, not only on th...

THE IRISH IN NEWFOUNDLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

THE IRISH IN NEWFOUNDLAND. The Island of Newfoundland is much larger than Ireland, its population is about 100,000. They are all engaged in fishing, and are scattered round the coast; their chief intercourse with each other is by boats. The judges and lawyers go. .their circuits — the bishops make their visitations around the coast in yachts. The interior is wild, unsettled, without roads ; the land is said to be fertile in occasional spots, but the people of this singular island despise agriculture ; they aspire to the daring and exciting avocations of hunting the seal, fishing for cod, &c. '? Natives', of : Newfoundland do not mean Indians, ?£)S some have conjectured. They are the children of European parents ; they are intellectual, healthy, lively, and handsome. This description refers to males and females. The majority of the people, are of Irish des cent, and much of this majority directly from Ireland. The counties of VVaterford, Kilkenny, and Cork, have been pouring ...

CITY ELECTION—RETURN OF DR. LANG. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

CITY ELECTION— RETURN OF DR. LANG. The return of this reverend gentleman augurs no good for the success and stability of the measure of ' free institutions and self-government,' now so anxiously looked for by the Colonists. .His past political career gives little reason to hope that he will effect any real good for the people in his ' Legislative capacity' — he no doubt promises much, nay, he is to be a 'wonder worker' in this regard, if any confidence can be placed in his own great and comprehensive professions of what he will not do — time will soon tell what a happy choice the Sydney electors have made in their representative ! Though we deplore the return of Dr. Lang, yet the only point that turned the scale in his favour, is one at which every friend to the future ' Freedom' and welfare of New South Wales must rejoice, viz., the determined spirit with which Mr. Holden's ambiguous opposition to the revival of' Transportation' under any form was received. Those who were deluded- ...

COLONIAL APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

COLONIAL APPOINTMENTS. This session of the Legislature has been distinguished by. the enunciation of a great principle — the assertion of what may, to a certain extent, be termed a national right, without a dissentient voice. It has gone forth as the unanimous opinion of the Legislature of New South Wales, that all appointments should be made by the local Executive. That these appointments should be maae not; indirectly ana oy recommendation to tne Colonial Minister, but directly and under the authority of her Majesty's Representative here ; whose advisers are responsible to the representatives of the people. The country is much indebted to Mr. Nichols for bringing about this result. His own resolutions, however; were somewhat objectionable as tending to make that, which was really a great national question, present the appearance of a mere personal one. The honorable gentleman, no doubt, felt this, for he readily gave way in favor of an amendment proposed by Mr. Donaldson,, which i...

PROGRESS OF LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

PROGRESS OF LEGISLATION: As the Imperial Act for the future government of the Colonies was expected out some short time after the opening of the present Session of the Legislative Council, much business of public importance was not looked for as being likely to be brought on for discussion before the close of the Session.

THE CORONER'S COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

THE CORONER'S COURT. Oue excellent contemporary the Herald Js deservedly patronised by all classes of colonists as a useful well conducted mercantile paper ; but there is one thing it is not remarkable for, and that is the brightness of its leading articles. An unusually nonsensical one ' com plained' on Tuesday last of what it called ' Medical Favoritism' on the part of our worthy Coroner, Mr. Rvan Brenan. We would suggest that a series of articles on ' favoritism' in general might be acceptable to the Herald's readers. His Excellency the Governor probably patronises a favorite wine-merchant, when he feasts the public in honor of her Majesty. His Worship the Mayor too probably has his favorite cook on the im portant occasion of civic feasts. What a strong tart article might not our good friend concoct on ' Bacchana lian and Gastrinomic functions ?' What business have these high functionaries to exercise their private caprice in1 patronising their own friends with public money ? If ...

PROPOSED SETTLEMENT NEAR TORRES' STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 25 July 1850

PROPOSED SETTLEMENT NEAR TORRES' STRAITS. The necessity of forming a Settlement at Cape York or somewhere in its vicinity has long been pressed upon the attention of the Government, and a Legislative Com mittee has at length been formed for the purpose of en quiry on this subject. No rule has been laid down as to the course to be taken by the committee, but it may, we think, be taken for granted that they will confine them selves to the collecting and arrangement of such a mass of information as may reasonably be supposed to impress, upon the attention of her Majesty's advisers, the advan tage of taking steps for the immediate formation of some such settlement. The- question was fully gone into by Mr. Nichols oh moving for this committee, and by the Colonial Secretary in supporting the motion. The commercial advantages of such a settlement as a coaling station for steam ars and as a means of opening up a trade with the neigh bouring islands, and although last not least, its necessit...
