Alderman ALLEN said, he saw froin the report of i the last meeting that some members had beenac cused of absenting themselves because. they were afraid to vote on certain.questions; for his own part he could only say that his absence on that occasion was wholly unavoidable, as he was Chairman of a meeting of the subscribers to the Sydney Dispensary -which. did not conclude until late that day. ,He thought it was somewhat discourteous to refuse him leave of absence, as he had only applied for that in dulgence two or three times during five years: he must also state, that in no i...

CORPORATE BODIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 January 1847
CORPORATE BODIES. IN our fourth page will be found an ex cellent and truthful article headed " An Essay on Corporate Bodies," which we met with in a New Zealandjournal. It is a spirited and well written article, and the justice of its remaks. relative to Corporate JBodies in general, as they are constituted at the present day, will at once be admitted. We would recommend it to the special perusal of the members of our own civic body; as we think there is much in itupon which they may very 'profitably cogitate for a spare hour or two; and a few hints may be found which if put into practice cannot fail to benefit the public, and create some thing like esteem for the Council itself.

TANNING INTERESTING TO AUSTRALIANS. ACADEMY OF SCIENCE, PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 January 1847
TANNING- :INTEREST1NG TO A.USTRA IHLANS. (From tile Colonial Gazette.) AC.lDBMt OF SCIENCE, PARIS. " A very important communication was made by M. Payrn. in the name of Dr. Turnbull, of London., relative to his practical application of the theory of endosmosis and extosmusis, discovered by M. .Dtro chet to the process of tanning, and also the applica tion of the soluile, principle of sugar to the same purpose. We give here a short explanation of what is meant by endlusnosis and extosmosis :--When a membrane intervenes between two liquids of dillierent densities they produce two currents-the one out wards, called extosmosis, and the other inwards, called endosmosis. By this new physical law the currents interchange until they become of the same specific gravity; thus Dr. Turnbull, by sewing up a hide filled with. one liquid of a certain specific 1 gravity, and then immersing the hide in another liquid, of greater orlesser,density, keeps up this reciprocal action until such time as th...
COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 January 1847
. COMMERCLAL AND MARKETS. * Business has rather an improved aspect this week, "from the arrival of numerous drays from the coun try, though not to the extent-it would.have done but for the rising of the Hunter, which has prevented ,drays and other vehicles from crossing. In general stores, teas may be quoted a shade -lower, to the extent of about 5s. per chest ; the price being for' best samples £4 5s. There is also a considerable reduction iu sugar; £25 being the out side figure for first quality, with corresponding re ductions in .inerior sorts. Ordinary articles remain stationary. The grain market has been dull this week, except in some sm.dl quantities of wheat brought in to the mills from the immediate neighbourhood; the sup ply from a distance being cut off by the floods. Some sales have been made at 3s. 64d. a trille higher .than.last week.. English and Cape barley remain at last quotations.; no sales have reached us.

THE RAINS—RISING OF THE RIVER HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 January 1847
THE RAINS-RIStNG OF THE RIVER HUNTER. Itlis now some time since the inhabitants of this district have seen the Hunter River pour down the immense body that it now does. On Thursday marning last the river was a foot or two higher than it was on the previous day, and was then running down with great force. From that time to the evening of Friday the water remained stationary ; 'thocurrent, however, running with suclirapidity as to prevent, as it had done for two previous days, the passage of the punts at the diferent ferries, the only manner of crossing the river being by'small boats. During the night, however, the water began to sub side gradually, and by yesterday evening had sunk about two feet; still all communication between the two banks by the punts was cut off, on account of the stream. The whole of the mischief committed by the ra vages of the waters has not reached us, but we have heard some lamentable accounts of the destruction of the promising corn crops, particularly in ...

IRELAND. "(From the Lododo Mail, September 24-.) Both from the north and south of Ireland the most gloomy accounts continue to be received as to the failure "hf the home-grown supply of food; and unless either food or work be immediately toutnd'for the people, "an outbreak" is spoken of as inevitable, in the course of the next month. - The Irish Government has taken measares for giving effect to the recent " Act to facilitate the Em ployment of the Labouring Poor for a limited period in Distressed Districts in Ireland."

YOUNG IRELAND WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 January 1847
YOUNG IRELAND WARFARE. (From the Galway Vindicator.) The opinion of the country with regard to the merits of the professed cause of the recent rupture in the Association is now pretty well known-too well understood, 'in fact, to require formal annun ciation in any deliberative assembly. For, let ad dresses pour .into the Association as numerous as they will, and be endorsed with naines however much 'revered, in approval of the recent policy of O'Connell, we still fearlessly maintain that the over whelming "opinion of Ireland is in emphatic con demnation of that policy, and particularly ivith regard to the despotism'which has so undisgutisedly characterisied it. There is not a genuine thinking nationalist in- Ireland, who,,Jn his heart of hearts, does not repudiate the idea that there was any the least necessity; for 'the preservation of the Asso ciation, to call or insist upon truthful, earnest men to pledge themselves' to an universal proposition, which, on the face'of it, 'carries...
