A ScHooL ANECDOTE.-One of the mostams?ing school anecdotes that we have heard recently, says the Boston Bee, occurred a few ldays ago, at the -- School, in Roxbury. A lad, whom we will call Peter, for the sake of a name, played truant from that. school, and, wishing for an excuse, the next day altered over an old note, which had been used for the same purpose on a former occasion, by expunging the old date and substituting, the pre sent. The master detected the trick, and,. it the presence of the school, impressed upon him tilh dangerous chlaracter of such. an act. He then told Peter he would leave him in ?tho aisle for 'alf an. hour to reflect upon it, and bq his own juidge as to the punishment due to the.offence. The half-hour having elapsed, the vwholc school was called to thp " third position," the attitude of attention,; and ths teacher said," Now, sir, you yourself are the judgp in this ease: what is your decison P" Peten ? 1oslr tated a little; then, hanging his head, pronoun...

RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION. PUBLIC MEETING AT KISSING POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION. PUBLIC MEETING AT KISSING POINT. (Abridged from the Herald.) On Monday afternoon last, a public meeting of the inhabitants of. Kissing Point was held, in the schoolroom at that place on the subject of the rec newal of transportation to this Colony.' There ware about fifty persons present, nearly all of whom were residents in the neighbourhood. The chair, was occupied by William Lawson, Esq., M.L.C.,for the county of Cumberland. Mr. I. B. DAnVALL, M.L.C., rose to propose the first resolution, to the eflcct that a petition to the Legislative Council be adopted praying that the report of the Select Committee of that body, ap pointed during the last session to report on the despatch of Mr. Gladstone on the subject of the renewal of transportation to this Colony, might be adopted by the Council... In moving thotresolution, the lion. and learned gentleman;: spoke at great length on the advantages which the colony had in previous years derived from the transporta...

SPAIN. (The following appeared in a second edition of the Times of Saturday:-) Madrid, September 6. El lleraldo declares that the marriage of the Infanta with the Duke. of Montpensier, will take place notwithstanding the resistance to it on the part of any foreign power. El Tiempo.says that M. Bresson was to present himself to-day at the Palace, and. demand in a formal manner the hand of the Infanta, the Queen's sister, for the Duke of Montpensier. El Expeceiador was seized to-day by order of the Political Chief. Mr. Bulwer, British Minister at Madrid, sent in, at one o'clock, this day, a second note, of a strong and energetic character, to Senor Isturiz on the subject of the matriage of the Infanta with the Duke of Montpensier. IHe warns Senor Isturis of the danger that will probably follow a perseverance in that scheme. He maintains the right of England to interfere in the marriage of tihe Infanta, which, by the law of the country, is of as much public im portance as that of the Q...

FRANCE AND SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
FRANCE'AND'SPAIN. (From the lMorning, "Chronicle.) Never at any period, not even during the pe ninsular war, was the name of Frenchmen held in such deep execration in Spain as at the present moment P The rash attempt of M. de Bresson, we are assured, has kindled a dlame in the Peninsula which is likely to lay the country .waste far and wide, from San Sebastian to Gibraltar, from the frontiers of Portugal to the Mediterranean. But one feeling seems to prevail upon the subject-there is a coalition of every political party in Spain to thwart the view of France. In whatever other points disagreeing, Progressistas, Carlists, the most important section of the Moderados (all of them, indeed, who are removed from Camarilla influence) appear determined to oppose this intended marriage to the death. We printed yesterday 'the protest of the Progres sistas, and of the influential Conservatives: hero is a clause from it once more " The Progressista party, both as Spaniards and as Liberals, Is de...
THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1847. THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS: IN THE CASE O'CONNELL V. HAWKSLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
THE 'SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, JANUARY 1U, 1847. -THE FREEDOM -OF THE PRESS: IN THE CASE O'CONNELL V. HAWKSLEY. IN many, perhaps in most instances, the benefits conferred on their own country especially, or on the general family of man, *by those who have their names conspi. cuously enrolled in the list of patriots or plilanthropists, havearisen from the excite ment produced by.a sense-of their own in dividual grievances, or by sympathy with the oppression and. sufferings of others in :some particular case, orin some small-circle, •wherein -the -appeal was first made to their 'hearts through their bodily senses. We could multiply examples in confirmation of the truth and faithfulness of this historic recollection. It would be foreign to our :present purpose so to do. It has only oc S;ourred to us to make this remark in vindi -cation of those which are to follow, and to purify ourselves from the suspicion of having indited them with any personal object in view.

LAW REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
LAW REFORM. (From the Atlas, London.) 7 A Society for the Amendment of the Law hasjutst made rather a striking demonstration. If we may believe the speakers, there never was any ting which so much needs amendment; those spealers, comprising men of all parties, and of the highest station, especially in the profession of the lay. Indeed belief outruns the speaker; the law reeds not merely amendment, but thorough alteration. It is very odd that that which is simply intended to secure justice between man and man, should be so contrived as to make its purpose difficult, if not im possible; rendering the attainment of justice quite a matter of pure chance; while it most. frequently inflicts gratuitous injury, and therefore injustice upon all, especially on those seeking redress. It is odd, too, that we should have arrived at such a pitch of endurance, that the evil is suffered to continue as if it were inevitable. There are some valuable things in our law, especially in its ten dency to p...
THE AUSTRALIAN SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
THE AUSTRALIAN SQUATTERS. (From the Colonial Times, Dec. 25.) Tie more we consider` the audacity with which tihe squatting millionaires persist in insisting upon possessing " rights," the moze we are astonished at the tranquillity with which are endured such flagrant attempts at public spoliation. Rights indeed ! What rights can the Australian squatter possess more than does the American, except that he has been indulged far beyond what has been any other " help myself" land pirate in the world i The American squatter goes forth with his family into the wilderness, and finding " a run" (as the Australian squatter calls it) that will suit him, (in his verbiage " a part of a prairie") to his mind, he sits down upon it, and those who compose his es tablishment set to work, axes in hand, In erecting a log-house, and with his team of oxen (his loco motives) he soon drags to scites apportioned for his garden and his stockyard, materials for enclosing them with a substantial fence, equal t...
COOLIE EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
COOLIE EMIGRATION. (From the Colonial Times.) It is well known that the most violent sticklers for the renewal of transportation to New South 'Vales are those who were the most violent advo cates for its discontinuance. It now turns out that the object of getting rid of the old system was to establish a new one, in which white slavery in its worst possible features was to be commenced, but -only in " Rob Roy's country," the wilderness of "* the squatters," where the miserable slaves in equal proportions were to be exiled for life; for any transportation to the interior of the great continent -of New Holland, beyond the reach of civilisation •or the controlling protection of the Stipendiary Magistracy, is in fact placing these miserable wretches at the " tender mercy" (so the subjoined extract calls it) of thle squatting slave-owner-is ~LAVERY FOR LIFE. Thie most active elforts are making by these white slave-dealers to obtain the -exclusive right of receiving upon their millions -of...

STATE OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 January 1847
STATE OF SPAIN. (From the 7'imes, September 10.) With all our afhectlon and admiration .fori the Spanish, we must say that they are a most provoking people. They are always a day too late for action. They quietly allow themselves to be .circumvented, and then affect the utmost indignation and surprise when they find themselves at the mercy'of a stran ger. To be sure, they do more than affect indigna tion : they are apt to give it even a too genuine and actual expression. lHe. who entraps a Spaniard, to use a proverb which Sancho Pauza would doubtless have expressed in the idiom of La Mancha, has only succeeded in " catching a Tartar." His work is to come. The most furious and practical vengeance, however, makes but pool amends for an evil which might have been prevented. Spain knows too well whom it has to thank for thie unfortunate lapse it now so vehemently deplores. It knows how little satisfaction the progress of Spanish affairs can possibly-have given:to England for several yea...
