HYDE PARK BARRACKS.--About six o'clock on Monday evening a disturbance took place amongst the prisoners in this establishment, which assumed so serious an aspect that Lieutenant Small, the superintendent, deemed it necessary to apply for the assistance of the military. Several companies of the 80th regiment were shortly in attendance, and were followed by a troop of the mounted police and a body of constabulary. His Excellency the Governor, accompanied by Major Hunter, also arrived, and the rioters immediately desisted from further insubordination. An investigation took place yesterday morning at Hyde Park before Cap- tain Innes, J.P., when it appeared that the disturb- ance originated in an order to separate those men who had previously been allotted to the same ward, and to transfer them to distinct compartments of the building. The enquiry resulted in five of the most active in the "affair" being committed for fourteen days to the cells, and further sentenced upon the expiration ...
To the Editor of the Morning Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 October 1843
To ths Editor of the Morning Chronicle. SIR-On taking up the Morning Chronicle of the 21st, I was really astonished in reading the account of the execution of Martin Beech and Lu- cretia Dunkley, who, according to your worthy in- formant, died " hardened and unrepentant." For your better information, I am bound to acquaint you that two better penitents never ascended the scaffold, if we can judge by external appearances. The prisoners, since their condemnation, had paid the most respectful attention to my very humble exertions to prepare them for that awful hour. I only wish and hope that the charitable person who has calumniated the dead will die as penitent as they have. Methinks the only reason your informant had for his account, was their not " confessing" their guilt on the scaffold. I do not consider this at all times necessary. I have to tell you that each of them burst into tears on the morning of their exe- cution, and showed the greatest signs of penitence. Instead of bein...

THE RIGHT O1F VISITATION EXERCISED BY THE AMERICANS. --u (From the CLester Chroniclo.) We copy the following remarkable paragraph from the _New York Weekly Express, of 15th April :--' A S~AVKn VISITED IUT NOT CAPTURED BY TliB VINCENNEa.-A letter written from the United States ship Vinceennes states, that on the 20th of February, off the river Guama, a suspicious vessel was discovered, to which the Vincennes gave chase. On clearing Point Cuztas the vessel was made out to be a taut rigged brigantine. At two o'clock the Vincernes came up with and boarded her. On tak. ing possession, we (says the letter) found three Spanish custom house olfficers on board, who claimed the vessel as under their colours. Toe captain was ordered to produce his papers, which, after a careful examination, were found to be correct, viz., a Spanish register, sea letter, and an authentic list of the crew and armament. Lieutenant Mitchell having satisfied himself that the brigantine could not be seized, informed...

THE BISHOP OF ARDAGH AND THE CATHOLIC LORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 28 October 1843
THE BISHOP OF ARDAGH' AND THE CATHOLIC LORDS. -0 (From the Freeman.) There are some good men even amongst the Ca. tholiq aristocracy of England. The body is not utterly and hopeless!y worthless. They are not all bankrupt in gratitude. They are not abandoned of all respect for consistency and character. Lord Camoys has, in his place in parliament, disevowed any participation in the sentiments expressed to. wards the venerated Bishop of Ardagh by his co. religionist, Lord Beaumont. We could wish he had done this act of justice with more grace and vigour-with more manliness and heartiness. But it is well that an English Catholic peer slould havo manifested his disapprobation of an act more cean. surablo for its ingratitude than for its unmanliness. Lord Camoys does not forget that it is to Irish Catholics he owes the privileges ihe enjoys. He is not ashamed to avow that his position as a peer of parliament has been attained through the exertions of the Irish people, sustained and encou...
THE WORKING CLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 28 October 1843
THE WORKIJNG CLASSES. -o At a meeting held on Tuesday night, at trhe Mechanics' School of Arts, for the purpose of agree. ing to a petition, which is in course of preparation, to be presented to the legislative council, the follow ing tesolutions were agreed to : " 1. That the meeting views withl regret the unsa tisfactory results of the petition of the working classes, lately presented to the legislative council, and strongly deprecates the apathetic delay of the immigration committee in not having devised some effectual measure of relief for the extreme distress under which so many of them continue to suffer; and, therefore, deem it expedient to forward another petition, praying them to adopt forthwith some mea. stires for the amelioration of their coniition. " 2. 'That in consequence of the great number of mechantra and labourers who are daily leaving the colony, from being unable to obtain employment, it is the imperative duty, and evident interest, of the local government, to f...
SELF RULE.—THE ENGLISH PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 28 October 1843
SELF RULE.-THE ENGLISH PRESS. -o - (From the rceeman, May 25.) We have at length succeeded in making England understand us. Too long have her statesmen affected to misrepresent our words and plead ignorance of our wishes. Too long have her political writers carefully shut out from her view the real state of the popular mind, and held up in its stead a distorted and unmeaning caricature, which was greedily gazed at as the genuine portrait of Ireland. This state of things has however passed, and for ever. England now sees us as we are. Her public journalists find that delusion on such an important question, no longer prudent, must be abandoned as unsafe, and having removed the hideous picture which hiltherto 'passed current as our political likeness, have placed bufore England a faithful portrait of an united people struggling for their liberties. The Times, that, but a few months since, recog nisedl in the Repeal agitation nought else save the discontent of a " brutal" and powerless ...
THE REDUCTION OF POLICE MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 28 October 1843
THE REDUCTION OF POLIOE MAGISTRATeS. WE fully agree with the Colonial Secretary in the remark he dropped the other evening in reference to the customs-" that hon. members would discover ere long that in retrenching they had, in fact, added to the expenses of the colony." We apply this ob servation to the recent vote on the Police Magistracy of the rural distracts. A most deplorable ignorance of locality was be trayed in that debate. We will instance the " Illa. warra." Not a word was uttered against the admi nistration of the present Police Magistrate : several members spoke in his praise, and deservedly ; for a moreupright, diligentmagistrate than Capt. Plunkett is not to be found in the colony of New South Wales. It is proposed -proposed I it has passed, that hence. forward the justice of this fine district is to be " jns. tices' justice ;" and what is more, it is to be family compact justice, for the family Osborne hold the magisterial sway therein. Now, we have to remark that th...
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25. The SPEAKER took the chair about half-past three. JERVIS BAY ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 28 October 1843
WVEDNEsDAY, OCTOBER 25. The SPEAKER took the chair about half-past three. JERIVIS DAY ItOAD. Mr. CowrPR presented a petition from the inhabi-. tants of the counties of St. Vincent and tMurray, praying that the council would appropriate from the colonial revenue the amount of one-fourth of the debts already incurred (2400) in the construction of the southern road to Jervis Bay, and a quay at Jervis Bay. Mr. Cowper bore testimony to the ad. vantages which would be derived from the road; and further, that the proposition forits establishment had been favourably received by his Excellency the Governor. On a future day he should be prepared to move that a select committee be appointed to in quire into and report upon the matter. lie would now move that the petition be read. The motion having been put and carried the peti tion was read. Mr. CowPan then moved that the petition be re ceived and printed. The motion for thle printing of the petition was negatived, and the petition was ordered...

THE PRIVILEGE OF FRANKING. The privilege of franking letters was one of the very few honorary distinctions which members of the house of commons retained at the passing of the reform bill. The sending and receiving letters free had become a mark of consideration; and, whilst the loss to the revenue was not considerable, the gratification this boon afforded to the privileged class, of conferring little favours, should not be lightly esteemed. It seemed the quiddam hnnorarium-the distinguishing sign-the graceful apanage of an M.P. The history of its introduction is curious; for, in company with many prized distluctions, it had ignoble oitgin in the pensioner parliament of Charles If. in a settlement of revenue of the post office. When Colonel Titus reported the bill, Sir WalteerErle delivered a proviso for the letters of all members of parliament to go free during their sitting. Sir Heneage Finch said it was a poor mendicant proviso. The question being called for. the Speaker, Sir iHa...
