The Dublin Ereni4 Post announces that telo Holy See has,' through itlhd Propaganda, issued a mandate to Cardinal Cullen to convene a national synod or council for the consideration of ecclesias tical matters in theo Irish- Church. The 1,st remarks that the-last synod was held at Thulrles, in 1850, and that since then many matters have arisen which call for thel present stop. It .instances the O'Keefleo case, which it says, hlis revealed the' fict that remnants of the penal laws still remain on the stttute book., It also refers to i\[r.

WAS THE MOTION IN ORDER? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
WAS THIE MOTION IN OiDlER? it Sir-In reporting the proocedings of the t Ilotham Council in your last issue, you In stated that the ruling of the Mayor disatis- tl fled me, but you made no mention of the ground upon which I felt dissatisfied. The ft motion, which by the illegal and arbitrary fiat of the 3Mayor, was prorented from being either amended, discussed, or voted upon at all, was this-" h'lhat the works on the saveral streets that ltvc not hlId their allotted amounts from the loan schedule be at once carried out from the loan fund in accordanco with the follow' ing recoummendation, submitted by the Overseer of Works, and that tenders be invited for the same." Those works com prisod pavemo nt ani} other works in thirteen of the oldest streets of the borough. The amount virtually at that moment, to the credit of the loan funds c for these works, was £1210 13s. 2d., be- s sides nearly £2000 due by owners as half the cost of paronmant, and as a matter of fact was unanimously reco...
THE RECENT ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
TIHE RECENT ELECTIONS. Sir-At last the ratepayers of the Western, Middle and .Eastern Wards of the Borough of Hotham have been asked by the Ratcpayers' Association to show by their votes whether they believe in the absurd idea that because flagging or pavement was done out of the proceeds of a loan, that owners of property abbut. ting on footpaths thus paved are not to be asked to pay half the cost. The answer, Sir, has been clear and unmistakable, as in the Western Ward not one vote has been recorded for such an absurd proposition. Nor yet can it be said that a single vote has been recorded in the Middle Ward in favor of such a ridiculous notion, as even (now) Mr. Caine, when it came to the push, dare not put such an issue to the rate payers of the Middle Ward, although he, on the 1st June last, voted for that absurd amendment that the pavemont having been done out of a loan no owner was to be asked for his portion of the cost. It is only in the Eastern Ward, where Coun cillor Carr...
THE BRUNSWICK ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
TIE BLUNSWICK ELECTIONS. Sir-In the Brunswick Municipal eled tions, which came off last Tuesday, there were four candidates in the field for three seats, and in the excitement created on these occasions there is a danger lest the real questions at issue should be lost sight of by the electors. It will not be the fault of the candidates if this is not the case, for they will naturally feel anxious to throw up a dust cloud, and retire behind it. Nasty facts they will try" to gloss over. The altering of Victoria street levels, and thereby preventing the drainage of the swamp, conniving at the discreditable conduct of one of their own body becoming the successful tenderer for that con tract, the worse than muddle made by the surveyor and public works committee in the Blyth street extensions, and the extravagant expenditure in the present day work system of maintaining the streets, are questions for serious con sideration in the present crisis. In the face of these ugly facts will the ra...
MELBOURNE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
MELB;OURNE, IIOSPITCAL. A. discussion that took place in one of the lodges of the 'I.U.I.O.O.F. lately raises at question of some import nuce.

THE SYDNEY ROAD AND POLICE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1874
TIHE SYDNEY ROAD AND POLICE PROTECTION. It must be admitted by all conversant with the locality of Sydney rood that the residents in and adjacent to thelloyal park have just cause to complain ot the way il which their property is leoft to the moroy of night prowlers. The population hans increased so much that, independent of the 5reot traillo along the road, the residents justly demand more attention. We think the representatives of North 'Melbourne should make application to havero a police. man constantly on the spot and that fronu Gratton street to Park street should be patrolled overy night.
