THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847
THE 'TRANSPORTATiON QUESTION. (From the .Maitland Mercury.) About a week ago, the Paterson anti-transporta tion petition to her Majesty was sent to Sydney, and would probably 'be transmitted .to London by. the same vessel asL the. Maitland and the.Newcastle peti tions. There were 1,520 names attached to it,,in cluding those of seven magistrates, and several of the largest landholders in the district. These make a total of upwards of 6,500 persons in the Hunter River District who have already expressed their dis sent to the renewal of transportation ".to any extent, or in any shape," viz.:- Signatures.

THE POTATO DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847
THZE POTATO DISEASIE. (From the Hobart 7bwn Advertiser.) In -our last we extracted from the Courier an account of the failure of the potato crop again this year. We are now enabled to lay before our readers a more detailed account of the extent of this fearful visitation.- They will perceive with deep regret that another year of famine has followed on the last, and that the source from which a third of the popu lation of the British Islands draw their subsistence 'is probably doomed to absolute destruction. It will ,be seen that the failure of the potatoe crop is attrl 'buted by one of the authorities quoted in the sub joined extract to the want of a change of seed. A change which it would appear-must be a radical one. The seed must 'be not only new but must-have been 'reared in a climate exposed to totally Adiffcrent.at ,mospheric influences. Were this not the case the potatoes raised from seed 'In which a new princi ;ple of life were Infused would escape the disease, -which might ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847
Ss. o RoaERT PBUL.-It is proposed to erect a statue, by penny subscriptions,'as a national testi monial to Sir Robert Peel,-a proposal with which we most heartily accord, and which we shall be happy to support by every means in our power. Talents and sincerity like those of the late Premier, should notbe allowed to pass unrecognised in some such manner ; and though we believe that as was said of Milton, so may be said of Peel, "His NAasf will be his noblest monument," yet still there is a worthy mode of doing contemporaneous justice to the virtues and achievements of .a man, which while it honors the man himself, confers no less honor on the parties who combine to accomplish it. And yet why should the public rest satisfied with a mere BTATUE P Why not enshrine the name of Peel in some INSTITUTION, carrying out the wishes and aims of a spiritas generous and philanthropic as his own P -which whilst it imparted joy and consolation to multitudes of the distressed, now unborn, would serv...

INDORNCB OF TUE LATE SIa C; W HENRELI. -A friend of ours, who happened to be serving his articles with hti eminenrt solicitor in London, was in structed by his principal to-call on Sir Charles with a document, setting forth a case in which was in volved a vast sum of money. Sir Charles's opinioft was requested. Our friend, then quite a youth, called. Sir Charles was busy. He informed the officials to request the young gentleman to call to morrow. lie did so, and received the same notice. The case was one of great urgency. On the docu ment was marked a notice tob that effect. Sir Charles, however, was, or appeared to be, always engaged ; and the regular visit of our young friend was re peated with the'same no-result during six weeks. At length the clerk advised him to step in and take Sir Charles by storm. Urged to desperation, he did so. He rushed into the apartment, and there was Sir Charles enjoying otium sine digpitate, seated at the fire, with a foot resting....

EDUCATION.—THE CLERGY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 January 1847
EDUCATION.-TIIE CLERGY. THE hon. member for St. Vincent has, on more than one oc:asion, signalized himself by asserting in the Legislative Council, that the Clergy never "did anything, and never would do anything for the advancement, of education.. We.felt ourselves called upon at-the time to give a most unqualified con tradiction to this arrogant, unibunded, and mendacious assertion, as far as the Clergy of the Catholic Church, in every age, and in every country, were concerned. In con firmation of that contradiction, and in fur ther refutation of the unwarrantable and barefaced assertion above alluded to, we feel great pleasure in laying before our readers some extracts from an able article in the Dublin Review of September, 1845, on the subject of " Education," which will be found in our fourth page.
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 14. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 January 1847
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. HOUSE OF -COM.MONS. FRIDAY, AU000ST 14. Mr. HIume observed he had some days ago pre sented a petition from the colony of. Van Diemen's Land in favour of having a representative govern ment, and he had also moved for a return bf similar claims made by other colonies. Ten colonies had sent applications for representative governments, anid lie was strongly impressed with the belief that it was not only the intention of the Government, but that it was also the interest of the nation at large, that these applications should be conceded as soon as possible. The noble lord at the head of the Govern ment stated a few nights ago in a speech in that house that it was his opinion that every colony should embrace within it.as speedy as possible the .public and social institutions of this country. lie therefore concluded from the noble lord's statement that all that was necessary was to point out that those privileges could be granted with safety. In Van Diemen's Land there we...

The MAvoR suggested that after the reports of comwittees, memorials, petitions, &c. had been re ceived, the Council should proceed to the considera tion of Alderman Flood's letter, in which he had tendered his resignation. Alderman Tnuvatow moved that the considera tion of Alderman Flood's letter should take prece dence of all other business. Mr. OWEN was of opinion that as there was a large amount of business on the paper, it would be better to take the several matters in their re spective order, and appoint a day specially for the consideration of Alderman Flood's letter.
