DISTRESS IN IRELAND. TO LORD JOHN RUSSELL. Saint Jarlath's Tuam, August 21, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
DISTRESS IN IRELAND. TO LORD JOHN RUSSELL. Saint Jarlath's, Tuam, August 21, 1848. Mr Loan-The brief interval that has elapsed since I found it my duty to address your lordship on the frightful prospects of the potatoe crop, has, I am sorry. more than realised our worst and most desponding anticipations. The failure-nay, the utter, the general, and undeniable destruction of that crop-the only support of millions of human beings-is now -a subject of irrefutable notoriety; and the only subject of doubt or speculation is what may be the short period within which tie celerity of the potatoe rot will work its estire anni hilation. This is a tremendous crisis to contemplate. It has already the effect of unnerving the courage of the ;people. Something akin to a feeling of despair has fallen on them; and like mariners be calmed in the midst of the ocean, whose provisions are gone, while they are many days voyage from any shore, they look forward through the terrible period of an entire year...

HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR.—PARRAMATTA DOMAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
HIS EXCELLENCY TIE GOVERNORl.-PAIl A.AMATTA DOMAIN. Wl learn fIrn the diseussions of the Par Matta flistrict Council, that his Excellency , We have received a letter from a correspondent of the most authentic kind, and of wore extensive ceminunicauon on this oubject than any se have hnherto obsctted, either oral or wratten in England. the Governor had been the object of re proach for having issued orders for the exclusion of the public from every portion of the Domain. The only extenuation for this ungracious act, which was suggested, being that Sir Charles Fitz Boy had hired it from the Colonial Government, and there fore, as a private proprietor by tenantry, "had a right to do what he liked with his own." In both these instances, it is now ascertained that injustice has been done to his Excellency, the matters of. fact being the reverse of both these statements. The Domain and premises are not rented by him, but he occupies them out of compli ment to his rank. No orders had emanat...
THE DEFEAT OF THE ARTFULLY-CONTRIVED MEETING OF THE PRO-TRANSPORTATION FEW AT GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
THE DEFEAT OF THE ARTFULLY-CON TRIVED MEETING OF THE PRO-TRANS PORTAiION FEW AT GOULBURN. To those who are not acqaainted with the different localities of this Colony, and are equally uninformed with the nature of our elective franchise, according to our existing colonial constitution, as is the case with many persons of high rank and influence in the mother-country, this meeting might have proved " a mockery, a delusion, and a snare," if suceess had attended the project. It has, however, signally tailed, and must have thrown by its defeat the clique of convict slave-holders into dismay - into "confusion worse confounded" thanh the failure of any of their previous schemes. To have made an appeal exclusively to the electors, in such a district as that of Goulburn, was showing the cloven foot at first; no metaphor is strong enough to denote the deceit and corruption at the bottom of this plot but one which we do not choose to employ. The turbulence at tending such a meeting is no more...
THE PROSPECT OF A POOR LAW FOR IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
THE PROSPECT OF A POOR LAW FOR IRELAND. (From the 'Freeman's Journal, August 29.) Few public measures have met with a more general support and approval from all political parties than Lord John Russell's bill "'to.facilitate the employ ment of the labouring.poor for a limited 'period in distressed districts in Ireland." That " the dis tressed districts" will comprise the whole island is now but too plain, and that the " limitedperiod" must be made unlimited by future legislation is not less evident. The nature of the great public emer gency which has called for the present act, there markable analogy which its title presents to the title of Elizabeth's celebrated act ".for setting the poor to work," and the notorious revolution of opinion in England which once more demands for the roor of that country wholesome out-of-door employment 'instead of the imprisonment and penal " bone crushing' of the workhouses, all inevitably suggest the inference, that it is a veritable poor law, and w...

REVIEW. Revelations of Austria. By M. Koubrakiewiez, ex-Austrian Functionary. Edited by the Author of the " Revelations of Russia," &c. In Two Vols. Newby. 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
REVIEW. (From the Tae't.),. Revelations of Austria. By M. Koubrakiewicz, ex-Austrian Functionary. Edited by the Author of the Revelations of Russia," 1 Eastern Europe and the Emperor Nicholas," &c. In Two Vols. London : Newcby. 1846. Recent circumstances have given a deep interest ,to any Illustration of Austrian policy among the ,Polish subjects of the Emperor; and a revelation purporting to proceed from a native, ex-functionary of Gallicia, demands the attention of the reader who would acquaint himself with the true causes of things, so contradictory as are many of the cir cumstances of the late permitted revolt of the Cra covian Poles, and encouraged massacres of the -Galician Lords by -the peasantry. Independently of this great source of momentary interest, the ,policy of Austria in all her relations is a question of great importance, and one which involves the peace of Europe and the welfare of mankind. There .is no inquiry more curious than that of the an tagonism of r...
THE MAITLAND AND NEWCASTLE ANTI-TRANSPORTATION PETITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
THE MIAITLAaD AND NEWCASTLE ANTI-TIANA POTATION . PETITIONS. These petitibns were despatched to Sydney on Mon day night last, and will probably leave for England within a week. The Maitland petition to her Ma jesty from the male residents of the district was signed by 2,940 persons; that to the House of Lords by 2,844; and that to the House of Commons by 2,772. The smaller number of the two latter was owing to some of the parties having emitted to get the three sheets signed. The ladies' petition to her Majesty bore no less than 1805 signatures. The Newcastle petition was signed by 308 persons, comprising all the resident. clergymen, and many of the leading ancn of the town and district. The petitions adopted at the Maitland meeting were circulated for signature through the Maitland, Wollombi, Muswell Brook, Scone, and Msirrurndi districts; and notwithstanding the number of names attached to them, nearly 5000, there were not, so far as we are aware of, a shilling paid for obtaining ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
Co rNTImOPLH, JULY, 22.-It is said that the E iperor of Russia is very much displeased with the Prince of Servita because he did not go at the same time as the two other princes to pay his compliments to the Sultan of Rustchuk, and a note Is spoken of which M. Von Tilon has received from St. Peters burgh,'in which this displeasure is expressed, and it is asked whether the Porto has lost its influence oves that vassal, so as to be unable to prevent such oc currences. M. Tilon, as we hear, has comianuicated this note to the Porte. The Porte, on itanpart, was dissatisfied with the Prince of Wallachia, his manner of presenting himself was thought to be unsuitable to the character of a vassal. The humble marks of submission were expected from him, which the prince thought he might omit. The splendid European." uniform of the prince and his attendants gave great offence, and it was thought necessary to insist that the prince and his suite should appear before the Sultan in the Turkish fes...

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1847. .POPULAR TOPICS.-EXTENSION OF FREE TRADE PRINCIPLES APPLIED TO THE COLONIES IN THE "BRITISH POSSES SIONS BILL." THE political journalist has, in the present times, his attention kept on the qui vive; his post is not one of mere ceremony and etiquette. Events crowd so rapidly on each other-the incidents of life amongst the mneanestofplebians hurry on so rapidly With the vicissitudes of the high-born, and the most exulted in power, " the peasant's hob nail shoe doth gall the kibe of the courtier," that the annalist has nosinecure in attempt isig to arrange the detail on which he is expected -to -comment. The execution of' Seery-the flogging of White, a private soldier, from the effects of which he died, are stirring and exciting incidents pro -ducing strong expressions of public opinion and great changes in the exercise of its controul, of equal importance with the expulsion of a ministry from their places, or the change of a dynasty on...
