Select Poetry. HARP OF IERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
-0 IARP OF IERNE. (From the Nation, August 29.) IDear harp of lerne, though rude was thy tone, By my fingers awak'd, it was Motherland's own ; And, oh ! 'tis high Heaven alone can define - :How my spirit, dear wild one, was woven with thine; And yet we are severed, if nothing remains Of the past to inspire thee but meekness and chains. •Oha, tell me its fiery-souled daring is o'er, .And 1'11 wake thee to visions of glory no more. -Wild harp of Ierne, the pride of the proud, "When the true could be sung in their glory .or shroud • Shall I rend thee, and curse thee, and fling thee away, Like a half-shattered blade on a half-ended day P 'Must thy lispings hbe changed like the changings of men, S-Or be doomed, aye be doomed, into silence again. ' *On, on with this strain and our-toiling is o'er, .For. 1'll wake thee to visions of glory no more. Wild harp of:Ierne, there's darkness abroad, -And we've tampered and trifled with tyranny's rod, * Till reason herself, lihke a guilty thing sle...

ANOTHER DEFEAT, AND THE LAST ATTEMPT TO RALLY OF THE PRO-TRANSPORTATION FEW. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
ANOTHER DEFEAT, AND TIIE LAST AT TEMlP1 TO-RALLY OF THE PRO-TRANS PORTATION FEW. IIouLY censurable as was the attempt at Goulburn to smuggle in some show of ad vocacy on the part of the inhabitants of the Colony for the revival of convict la bour.; for similar reasans, but on much stronger grounds, ought the Kissing Point manceuvre to be severely reprobated, as a clheat. It certainly was a shameless design in its originators to palm off the expression of their own individual and self-interested notions, as the sentiments of any portion of-their fellow-colonists, except of those over whom the leaders on that occasion have, from accidental circumstances, a local and personal influence. Mr. Lawson, Mr. H. MIacarthur, and Mr. Darvall were well known as :Members of Council bearing their share of the odium which the eagerness to grasp at the prof fered renewal of transportation, had brought upon its committee with Mr. Wentworth at. its. head. Of the latter honorable and learned gentleman,...

Original Correspondence. MILITARY FLOGGING. To the Editor of the Sydney Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
LIJ 1 FILOGING. `tle, ditor of the Sydntey Chronilre. SIR,-The ecisive part your journal has always lakeos in the struggles that are carrying on between the flinty-hearted, and those in whose veins the milk of human kindness flows, induces me to offer to you smy aid in the cause of- that glurious revolution which public opinion and practical religion is now ,working out in n ilitary discipline, and in every other branch of the sanguinary code which has so long disgraced the country, to which, on many ac counts, we are still proud to belong. The detail I have to communicate is of such a soul-harrowing nature, that at the bare narration, humanity shud dersoand nature revolts. " - Infandum est, renovare dolorcm." In offering to you, sir, for publication, a concise -account of the horrible cruelties committed in the lefal infliction of the tortures of military flogging, '1 strictly confine my memory within the limits of -ssy own personal observation and knowledge; I write only of past e...
British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
Utrlfj Eirlrarto. A CARD.-(From Plt.lih.)-Mr. Benjaamin Disraeli begs leave to inform the nobility, gentry, and ultra-Conservative public in general, that he attends Protectionists parties, and has a large col lection of speechqs of every description always ready, together with a set of sarcasms, which he under takes sliall be carefully delivered either in town or country. B. D. feels justified in assuming to him self the title of the " Only Political Improvisn- Tory;" for having during several years given hir attention to the impromptu line, lie has on hand a very large assortment of retorts and supplies, suited to everyoccasion. Though hle keeps a large quan tity ready made, they are warmed up so rapidly, after a process peculiar to the advertiser, that he feels justified in announcing them as absolute novel ties. B.

THE MISSIONARY COLLEGE AT DRUMCONDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
TIE MISSIONARY COfLEGE AT DRUM CONDRA. (From the 7Tblee.) That part of the Statuta Proposita which re gards Great Britain has already attracted a consi derable degree of attention ; not, perhaps, quite so much as it deserves; but, at all events, far more than has been paid to other parts of that important document. In its Apostolic care for the Church in this empire, the Holy See did by no means confine itself to what we are accustomed to consider as home. The Church is equally at home in the wilds of America, the untilled prairies of Australia, the sinks and slums of the oldest cities of Europe, and the luxurious mansions of civilised respectability. She has a mission for all ; and wherever tlhere are souls to be saved, there is her home, without respect of persons or outward social distinctions. Accordingly, in the very document in which the Holy See took notice of our English deficiencies and chaotic striv ings, it also took notice of the destitute condition of the colonial missi...
Mai[?]land. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 January 1847
?-lattlauli0 -o0 (From the Ma?itland Mercury.) Tits FLIES. *So great is this nuisance in Mait land, but more particularly in the bush, that almost every,person travelling on the road carries a veil for protection against these tormenting insects. Sonime idea of the vigour with which they make their assaults maybe gathered from the fact that we have ourselves seen horses s ith holes eaten to tile depth of half an inch in the corner of their eyes by the flies. A gentleman resident at Black Creek, re cently had two valuable mares killed in the same mannler. JERRa's PLAINS.-'The weather of late has been excessively hot, yet the maize crop still looks beau tiful, and the pasturage is abundant. The flies have become a perfect plague, and are already annoying from the prevalence of ophthalmia. There is scarcely an individual who has wholly escaped this unwelcome visitation. Tlhe writer is hitherto a for tunate exception ; and he attributes his exemption to bathing the eyelids, morning and ...

Vort VfIullep, -o - Srocs SraTrsTres.-Fiour hundred and sixty six lhead of cattle have been slaughtered for consump tion in the town of Melbourne during the last month, being an increase over the number slaugh tercd during the previous month of about twelve. The largest slaughterers during the past month appear to have been Messrs. Booth and Argyle, Hoifman, and Wilson. None have been slaughtered for melting purposes.-P. P. Patriot. TuE New LIuTnrousE.-On Saturday a meet ing of the captains of vessels in harbour, was con vened at the oflice of Captain Cole, for the purpose of determining upon the best site for the proposed light-house. In this matter, singular to say, the claims of others have been admitted to possess a priority to our own - thus, Cape Schanck was originally objected to, because though a site ex ceedingly well adapted to our colonial traders, it would be almost useless to vessels arriving from England or India..

C)13Erlfvuttlnt l Cttt. -0 TUESDAY, JAN. 12. VACCINATION. His Excellency the Governor directs it to be notified, that a Vaccine Institution has been estab lished in Sydney, and that Dr. Savage, the Health Officer, has been appointed to carry out the objects of the institution. r'° His Excellency further directs it to be notified, that Dr. Savage will be in attendance at the Immi gration Barracks, Bent-street, between the hours of 10 and 12 o'clock, on every Tuesday and Saturday to vaccinate, free of charge, such children as may be taken to him for the purpose. But as the opera tion itself, without any proof of its having taken effect, would be insufficient security to the public mind, his Excellency has been pleased to direct, that the sum of one shilling shall be deposited for every child vaccinated, which sum will be returned on the presentation of the child on the next vaccina tion day.

THE RUMOURS OF WAR AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
THE RUMOURS OF WAR AGAIN. TUB topic which seems to engross the most anxious general inquiry is, as to the pro bability of war. On our part, we have selected all the information we could gather on the Spanish marriage affair, and must in common with all abide the arrival of -fresh news. Having already,in:our last number, hazarded our conjectures founded oh the knowledge of Louis Philippe's character and designs, combined with.a thorough ac quaintance, personal and historical, with the people of Spain; we have nothing to add, except a confirmed expression of our opi nion that a raging civil war will, at all events, be the result of this French ling's success in his intrigue; and that it must draw into the vortex of the "bella, horrida bella" of Spain, the blood and treasure of our father land, which on so many former occasions of conflict has been lavished on the same soil. On this subject we cannot content our selves without most cordially seconding the suggestions of our contemporar...
THE SQUATTER'S CLAIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
THE.SQUATTER'S CLAIMS. TuI perfect coincidence with our own re corded sentinients on these gentlemen's "rights !" which we have observed in those of our Hobart Town conrtemporary the Colonial Times, as published in his columns of date December 25th, has led us to trans for the article, as flattering to ourselves into our journal of. this day. It will be found, however, unbiassed by any such consideration, to be most worthy of the roorint, on public grounds, and can not fail to deepen the impression which an impartial judgment has already given to the public mind, as to the grasping schemes of.these despoilers of our and our chil dren's rights. Much has been recently said with the air of novelty, but of abiding, deep-rooted strength. Their cupidity has at length begun to prey upon itself. Their eagerness to catch at the transportation gift, put as they thought within their grasp, has brought out a spirit of setaliation they cannot resist. Every one now sees that the destination of th...
NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
NORFOLK ISLAND. We have received intelligence from this penal settlement to the 10th of December last, giving some account of the several ex ecutions which have lately taken place at that island. On the 13th of October last, twelve men were executed for the murder committed on the 1st of July; one on the 20th of said month for the same crime ; two on the 3rd of November for the mur der of a prisoner overseer, and two on the 2nd of December for stabbing an overseer and policeman-in all, seventeen unfortu nate persons launched into eternity. Of these, three were natives of Ireland; two born in England of Irish parents; one in Glasgow of Irish parents, and the remain ing eleven were natives of England. Five had been baptised in the Catholic Church, or born of Catholic parents; nineembraced the Catholic faith while in prison under sentence of death-all of whom died with every mark of sincere repentance; and when their former character for .violence and recklessness is taken into account...
