(From the Dublin Review.) 'Speech of Thohias Wgse, Es., M.P., on' the xtlenston and Ilnprovemerit of Academical., Collegiate, and University Education .in Ire -land, at the meeting held for that purpose at 'Cork, Nov. 13, 1844, with Nates documentary .and illustrative. London-: 1845. A glance over the leading periodicals and more -?laborate works with which the Anglican press has 'been teeming for sometime past, satisfies us that-at eno former period of -our literature, was there a more -willing mind amongst the most learned of our -separated brethren than at the.present moment, to -receive information and pronounce impartial judg rnent respecting the. claustral character and social influcnces of the various orders of the ancient regular Sclergy. People of education are likely before long -to be shamed oit of the phrases,-" monkish igno-. ,rance" and" dark ages '" than which no -terms "have been more conventional in ordinary discourse, *and more hackneyed in every .path of literatur...
THE AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 January 1847
THE AUSTRALIAN. In the Australian of Thursday last, the'following liberal remarks appear in an article on the subject of the renewal of transportation. We insert them here, not-only on account of -the free and indqpen dent tone which pervades them,'but chiefly to supply an omission which was, doubtless, inadvertently made on the peartof the writer; but which is, nevertheless, one of far more importance to him than the pro posed meeting itself. We are of opinion that the omission to which we allude did not -occur on ac count of the modesty of the writer, as that is a quality of which he has long been destitute, if ever he pos sessed it, but, as we before observed, werely because he inadvertently forgot to mention it. The following is tie extract, the omission being supplied'by us at the conclusion : " Such of the Port Phillip peopleas are favourable to Transportation, have acted wisely in calling no public meeting to sanction the petition they have prepared, and are now busy signing....

LOSS OF THE SIR. ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 January 1847
LOSS OF THE SIR. ROBERT PEEL. (From the Australian.) It is with deep regret we announce the total wreck of the fine ship Sir Robert Peel, Capt. Champion, at Avoca Bay, about fifty miles to the northward of Sydney Heads. The first intelligence of the wreck was brought by Captain Mulhall, of the steamer T/distlec, on Tuesday night, he having seen, whilst on the pas sage from the Hunter, a large vessel ashore, with her mainmast gone, also her fore and mizen top masts, being nigh and dry on a sandy beach, stem on; but owing to the great surf, he could hold no communication with her. Several men and soldiers being plainly discovered on the beach, it was sup posed by some to be the Lord Auckland, and by others the Java; both of which vessels have lately left our port. In consequence of Captain Mulhall's report, IHis Excellency the Governor directed Captain .Moriarty to proceed in the steamer T/idstle to the spot de scribed, and render what assistance he could to the wreck. The T/dstle,'th...

THE WORKING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 January 1847
THE WORKING MAN.. To be a man in the true sense, is first, and espe cially, to have a wife. The workman, generally single -in former times, is often a married man at the present day. Married or not, he generally finds on his return, a female in his house- a home, a fireside, a wife. Oh ! life has been transformed! A wife, a family-children presently ! Expense, misery ! If work failed 'P It is very alTh?ting to see all these hard-working men in rthe evening, striding homeward at a rapid pace. See thifs man, after liis long day's labour, often at a league frolnm home, after a msecrable breakfast and a solitary dinner, who has been stand ing for twelve hours-see how active he is at night ! He is hastening to his nest. To be a man one hour a day, in fact, is not too much. A sacred sight ! He is carrying bred home, and when once arrived, lie rests himself--he is no longer anything, but gives himself up, like a clhil, to his wife. Nourished by him, she nourishes and warms him; they both s...
THE BUNYIP, OR KINE PRATIE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 January 1847
THE BUNYIP, OR KINE PRATIE. (From the Port Phillip Patriot?. From the earliest date of our intercourse with the aborigines there has always been a traditional ru- mour amongst them of a creature hitherto sup- posed to be fabulous, and many extraordinary stories have from time to time been current as to the con- formation and habits of this animal. Speculation and enquiry have been on the rack to find out, first -whether there was any reasonable foundation for these traditional rumours; and secondly-supposing the animal to exist; to what genus or species of animals does it belong ? At the Hunter's River the reports of the natives would lead us to classify it with the carnivorous species. In this locality it is called Yaa-hoo, and is described as having much resemblance in form to the human figure, but with frightful features-the feet like those of a man, but reversed or turned backwards. In the immediate neighbourhood of the river the animal is called Wowee Wowee, and the blacks pict...

This long impending case being called on for ar gument upon the merits, Mr. HoLOoYD was heard as counsel for the respondent. The suit against the Morning Star was one for .wages,in whichthree natives of the South Sea Islands were the promovents. This latter fact did not, how ever, appear by the evidence, -but it did appear that the vessel had been builtat WallisIsland, and a docu ment was attached.to the.pleadia~s purporting to be aregister given at that .place. This document bore the signature of Lavilua, who declared himself to be Chief or Kigg of Wallis Island. and it was countersigned by a Roman Catholic bishop, who described- himsetf also as secretary; but there esas no evidence to prove that either of these signatures were genuine, although it was con tended, that as the authenticity of the document was not disputed, ...
