THE POTATO DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 9 January 1847
THE POTATO DISEASE. A letter from Chamberry, of the 17th instant, announces the melancholy fact that the potato dis ease had manifested itself throughout the whole of Savoy, with greater intensity than during the past year, when it only broke out towards the end of September. The Bishop of Chamberry hAd ordered prayers to avert the impending calamity. The disease of the potato has infected the turnip crop. A writer In the Herald says:-'" I have a crop of Swede turnips, which has excited great notice from its luxuriant and forward appearance, being drilled on the 22nd of July upon ridges, with a composition of sulphuric acid and bones, night soil, ashes, and gypsum mixed up together. From their first appearance the plants looked healthy ; they grew very strong and rapid,, escaping that general scourge, the turnip fly. I visited the field last Saturday, and am sorry to say nearly the whole of the white turnips are affected with a disease similar to that of the potato, and the swedes t...
LETTER FROM AMERICA. New York, 30th July, 1816. NEW YORK—A WEEK IN THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
LETTER FROM AMIERICA.. New York, 30th July, 1816. N5SW Xt5K ?-A WEEK IN TIr, CITY. This city has swelled enormously since I was last here, about three years ago. Several hundred streets havie been added to it. 'We have now one continuous street, which -extends about five miles. Through this great thoroughfare a 'xailroad passes, from the heart of the city to the outski ts. The railway cars are drawn by horses at a trottnug pace. Fresh cars pass every five minutes : one can get in at the ever open doors, and travel two or three miles through crowded streets for six cents, (31.) This great thoroughfare is called " the Boweryre" Another very long, and the most fashionable street, is " Broadway;" the houses in it number above one thousand. As the street recedes from the awntre of the city, the houses appear -more elegant, having white marble fronts, doorways, and steps and 14late glass windows. They are generally five sto,'ies high, and are-kept remarkably bright, well paintet, and fres...

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1847. WARLIKE ASPECT RENEWED. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
THE SYDNEY C R fl IC1J WEDNESDA Y, JNUARY 13, 1847. WARLIK E ASPECT RENEWED. AsurnsT the copious selection of miscella neous news which we have given from the Port Phillip press, our readers will obrcrve with interest and alarm that war, it is ap prehended, may occur between France and Spain, in which case it is scarcely pcssible that England will not be involved. Anmi cabie as are the present relations between the thrones of Victoria and Louis Philippe, it cannot .be expected that any British sovereign can quietly lock on and see Spain become a virtual appendage to the Orleans branch of the Bourbons. '1 he.ambition of the '* Citizen Barricade King of the French" may at last, in this instance, overleap itself, and tumble on the other side. His intrigue may at last lead him into the pit which he himself hrs dug. The unconquerable na tional spirit of the Spanish race, roused, as it appears to have been, to its ancient height of hatred of the French, may not improbably prove to be the ...

?ETHuOD O f MAKING GOOn BUTTER AND PRI SERVING TIH SIILK SWEIET IN HOT WEATHER, AS PRACTISED IN DEVONsHIRE.-To the Editor, Aug. 27, 1940. Sir--Should no one have replied to your fair querist," A Young Dairywoman," the following instructions, through the medium of your intelli gent journal, are at her service :-The milk, when brought into the dairy, to be strained into tin or brass pans, about a foot or. a little more in diameter in the bottom, to the depth of three or four inches; let the milk stand in an airy situation until quite cold, say ten or twelve hours ; then set the pans over a hot plate, or a charcoal fire, where the heat is equal all over the bottom of the pan. Thile milk must be made what is termed scalding hot, but must not simmer; if allowed to boil the cream is entirely spoilt, and the milk much deteriorated. It must then be removed, and when cold the surface is what is termed the Devonshire clotted cream. Now sup pose, for example,. that butter is made on a Saturday...
IMPORTANT TO SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
IMPORTANT TO SQUATTERS, (From the P. P. Patriot.) A letter received yesterday from Hobart Town, and from a most respectable source, contains the fol lowing important information. The writer states a London paper under date the" 17th September (received per ship Sir Robert Peel) gives a brief summary of tire " Rules and Regtilations," or " Orders in Council," under which the new Land Act is to be worked out. The gist of the matter is thus expressed by the authority referred to: "t.Right of pre-emnption is granted for 320 acres at ile minimum price which will give a right todepas ture a block of land sufficient tfr 4000 sheep during eight years, at the rate of £10 per annum, besides an assessment. Inl some cases tile auction system is to be adopted-that is, where the occupier neglecdt to avail himself of his pre-emptive right, the block can, on demand by another party, be put up and disposed of by auction-lauds soihi thile boundaries of location are not to be included in the Act, and ...
A MARTYR OF CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
A MARTYR OF CHARITY. (From the Annals of the Faith.) A holy Missionary, whose name is well known to our readers, Father Francis, a Capuchin, of the house of Lyons, has just fallen in India the victim of his zeal and of his charity. At his own request he had been appointed to open the important and dan gerous Mission of Lahore, and it was at the moment when he was going to set his foot on that idolatrous land that the sword of those whom he came to save took away his life. Here are, according to a letter of the Abb6 Itosat, Vicar-General of Verdun, the particulars of that death so precious in the sight of God. " Father Francis. of Saint Etienne (Loire), had been sent by his bishop to Loodheana, a city situated at a short distance from the Sutlege, which bounds the English possessions on the north. This station was only a place of passage for him ; from thence he was on the first favourable opportunity to pene trate into the kingdom of Lahore, the goal of all his desires. It is only a...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
ENGLISHI NEWS. (Fronm the Melbourne Argus.) By the Sir Robert Peel, arrived at Hobart To' n, we have English news to the 20th September. We are Indebted to the summaries of the Van Diemen's Land journals for the following extracts: Hier Majesty and Prince Albert were continuing their tours of inspection and pleasure. Jersey, Guernsey, and the Duchy of Cornwall have been favoured with royal visits. At all these places, her Majesty and his Royal Highness met, as usual, with a "most loyal reception." After a week's cruize in the channel, they returned to their island home at Osborne 'House. Some terrible disease is stated to be making fearful havoc amongst the cattle in the country districts of England. Hundreds have died from it. The same pestilential influence seems to be at work in the vegetable kingdom, and potatoes and turnips, espe cially, have suffered to an alarming extent. The wheat crops alone seem to have escaped uninjured. The annual meeting of the British Association was h...

tYaric:ics. -o SIRa JouN FRANKLIN·L, ANO .IIaK REI.ATIES. At the time I visited Lincolnshire, thousands of acres in the fens produced nothing but reeds, peat, geese, and wild-fowl; I never entered the White -Hart. at Spilsby, but 1 dined ofl' a wild duck, the finest thing, in my estimation, the country pro duces. .I well recollect spending a winter's evening in this comfortable inn, and meeting with a fine young chivalric fellow, whose manners bespoke him no ordinary person. 1ie was the eldest son of a shopkeeper in the place, of the name of Franklin, and though he had no opportunities of seeing the world, but by his occasional trips to Manchester to buy cotton goods, he had acquired intelligence and manners that one would little expect to find in such a corner of the world. He invited me to breakfast, and I was much pleased with his two amiable sisters. .In a recess, close to the fire, was a'diminutive piano forte, by which I introduced myself playing a can zonetta of Haydyn's.

(From the Hlobart Town Advertiser.) The present Lord Lieutenant appears to be very popular in Ireland. At a recent ' bespeak' at the Theatre Royal, Dublin, his Excellency was received ' with all the fervour which an Irish audience alone could express.' On the entrance of tihe noble earl, accompanied by the Ladies Ponsonby. the whole house rose, and continued to pour forth applause peal after peal for several nminutes. The Ladies Ponsonby were attired in poplin of Irish manufac ture. In the glowing language of the correspon dent of the Atlas, ' they wore wreaths of shamrock, and shawls of Limerick lace were thrown over shoulders Which rivalled them in whiteness, and harps, formed in Irish diamonds, sparkled on brows as pure and bright as the national gem.' After the first act, the applause for his Excellency was re newed, and a cheer for the Ladies Ponsonby being demanded was responded to by the audience with thrilling effect. Tile Cork Examiner says, that assurances have been receiv...
MR. BAGOT'S OVERLAND TRIP TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
MR. BAGOT'S OVERLAND TRIP TO SOUTH AUSTRALI A. (From tire Alitansd Alereury.) We are glad to see Mr. Bagnot has returned safely from his long journey overland to South Australia. We have obtained from him a few particulars relative to his trip, which from the interest generally taken in our land communication with that promising colony, may not prove unacceptable. The party started from the Barwin, on the 17th March last, and proceeding up the Castlereagh.river about 140 miles, nearly to the foot of the 'aram bungles, struck across to the Macquarie, a distance of 40 miles, 28 of which they drove their cattle witlout water. After travelling up this river about 30 miles, they crossed under the skirt of the Wellington mountains to the Goobang Creek, following whichl brought them on to the Lachlan River. Until they reached this river they experienced considerable difliculty in places, in watering so large a herd of bullocks at tte small holes, but the feed had hitherto been very good. D...

MORETON BAY. To the Editor of the Sydney Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
MORETON BAY. To the Editor of the Sydney Chronicle. Sir,-The Moreton Bay Courier condemns in bitter terms an extract published in a late Chronicle, and headed Protection for the Aborigines. The Courier calls the writer of that letter " a butcher of the truth, and an assassin of facts." To write more on that subject is useless, as there is no means of proving the truth. If Government will institute a commission to inquire into the outrages committed by and against the blacks, we shall soon see who are literally the butchers and assassins. Will the Courier say, that the late proceedings against the blacks were legal ? Will the Editor say, that none but the reputed murderers have been shot ? If he do, the people of Brisbane must give him credit for a good deal of brass.-I am, yours faithfully, A MORETON BAY MAN. [We think it proper here to state, that the More- ton Bay Courier, having attacked our correspond- ent in the manner he has done, designating him as a " snake in the grass," we...
PLACE-HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
PLACE-HUNTING. (From the Nation, Aug. 29.) The " Union" was voted in the Irish Commons by 140 members. Of this number, 113 either then were, or immediately after our provincialism became, Placemen. Commissionerships,Chairmanships, Col ltctorshlps, Clerkships, &c , were bountifully con ferred on the honourable sellers of their country by their right honourable buyers. At this day the same systnm, though on a tuch mitigattcd scale, goes on between British Governments and Irish expectants. The announcement of a new Ministry throws the whole country into a state of extraordinary excite ment. Great officials suddenly remember that they have nephews and cousins-popular favourites have brothers and brothers-in-law-the local Demos thenes has his poor relations or poorer panders and the town trader his favourite assistant, to provide for. The electricity of selfishness runs from rank to rank of our educated class, causing many strange results. In this scramble for office many fail, w...
PAUPERIZATION OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
PAUPERIZATION OF IRELAND. :(From the Nation, August 29. While millions of Englishmen and Scotcbmen are fed upon.grain.and meat which.lIreland sends them -while many thousands of the most sober and in dustrious Irishmen are forced to emigrate annually, carrying all their savings along with them, because their own country (with all its five million acres of fertile wastes) has no room for them-while Ireland sends £100,000 a-year to-Scotland for -fish, although her own waters are swarming and her own fishermen are starving on the shore-while labour and capital, in every conceivable form, are yearly radiating from *this island to all points of the compass - the people of -Ireland, the.enormous agricultural population who remain vegetating here,-are fast-sinking into an indiscriminate mass of poverty and misery,which the new "relief" measure of Government will in fallibly and permanently aggravate. We say that for Ireland a" Poor Law" of any kind is.a beginning at the wrong end; instead ...
