GRAND SCHEME OF EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
GRAND CliI?MaR OF RMIGRATION. The brewers should to Malta go, The loggerheads to Sicily, The Quakers to the Friendly isles, The hot-headed to Chili. The little lawling, squalling babes, That break our nightly rest, Should be packed off to Baby-lon To Lap-land, or to Brest. Bachelors to the United States, Maids to the Isle of Man; Gardeners to Botany, And sloeblacks to Japan. Thus emigrate, and misplaced men Will then no longer vex us; And all that ain't provided for Had better go to Texas.

CONDITION OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
-CONDITION OF IRELAND. .(From the Sun.) The subject or Irish distress, and the means to be adopted for its mitigation, command a melan choly interest at the present period; .tiler are few .philanthropists, few Englishmen, of any sect or class, who will not gladly .do anything within their power to alleviate the sufferings, to relieve the wants of ,their Irish brethren. We prize and re spect-their many valuable qualities.; we regret the errors of the Irish character--errors of the head, and-not of the .heart-and which have been pro duced by a long course of, misgovernment and op pression, by a variety of exciting causes, which if ,theyrexisted in our own country might have pro .duced equal, if not greater. mischief. The Irish man ,possssses a heart imbued with feelings of the warmest sensibility, the most perfect gratitude and devotion to those by whom he has been fairly dealt with, by whom he has been treated with kindness. He endures afflictions and trials with the most un parallel...
THE GREAT MORAL LESSON OF THE LATE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
THIE GREAT MORAL LESSON OF TIE I LATE SESSION. :(From tho Nottingham Review.) TheI agitation for a repeal of the Corp Laws, and its recent victory, has taught the people of this country a most useful and instructive lesson-a lessoi which concerns all classes, and by which all classes will do well to profit. The achievements of the League are pregnant with results yet even more important than the destruction of that form of monopoly assailed by the agitators, if the people will only take the-hint so significantly given, and prepare to wield ,those weapons which have been tried only to prove elicient, and which are as well calculated Tort se in tie assault on other forms of.political wrong, which 4nUst yet 'engage the at testidn of Reformers. We learn from the Free trade agitation and its results that there is a sufli clently vigorous democratic element in the structure of the British ,Constitution -to .render the popular .cause victorious,the moment such causelis associated ,with the...

THE PROTESTANT CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
THE PROTESTANT CHURCH. (From thi Pilot, September. 2.) " We believe there are few who can hesitate toavow the'belief thatotir Church, as an establishment, is *in'danger." So states (the italics areour's) the University Ma .gazine, for this present, month of September. . The -fact upon which the writer bases his belief that peril lies against the Church-or, what is of far more value in theeyes of its ministrants, the establishment, or temporalities-is, that piatronage is'so ill bestowed, lthat both bad bishops and parsons have been ap i ronted to dioceses and benefices. Now, we beg leave to say that, were the system of ipatronage adopted in the Anglican Church the best, instead of -the worst that ever insulted.religion, still 'the Protestant Establishment of this country is a ,monstrous injustice, and must be put an end to. The system of .patronage which obtains in that -Church adds to the hardship of being robbed the -bitter feeling that those who profit mostly from the -wronig are ...

Maitland. THE MAITLAND HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
-o THE MAITLAND HOSPITAL. (Abridged from the Maitland M]ercury.) The adjourned meeting of the subscribers to this institution was held at the Northumberland, on Wednesday, the 27th instant, J. Chambers, Esq., in the chair. Mr. KnDDos proposed to hear what proposition the Catholics had to make, and if it was in reason, he had no doubt that the subscribers would meet them in an equil spirit of fairness. Mr. R. GassN called upon the Catholics to come forward and ,pay. their subscriptions; they would then be entitled to take part in all proceedings. Mr. C. M. DoyLr thought it would be hardly fair to call. upon their Catholic brethren to subscribe, unless some guarantee were given to them that the resignation of the Treasurer and Secretary would be accepted, these being the conditions upon which the junction was to be effecled. Mr. M'CLEn5LAND stated, that the term for which he had been elected secretary having expired, he held that office no longer. After a few words from Mr. Doyle, The...
British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
cititID Exttracts. -2- Plus 1X.-Now and again there have arisen Popes like Martin V., who have reflected aipomp and glory on the office; or like Nicholls V., who played the part of a great Pope and a great Sove reign. Nicholas, indeed, prepared' the way for the coming of the great Leo- hlimself. He raised and reconstructed the ruined walls and gates and towers of the Eternal City. He'repaired the capitol, for tified the Castle of St. Angelo, erected the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore, St. John of Lateran, St. Paul, St. Lawrence, and St. Stephen. Nor were these his only merits. He asseibled around his court men' of science and learning ; .Rome, under his sway, sought to emulate the splendour of the ever glorious past. "What Rome was under the tenth Leo is known to every student in his history. Under his pontificate a stupendous and unequalled temple was raised, and the noble arts of sculpture and painting were rendered tributary to the service of religion. Butall these spiritual So...

MAITLAND HOSPITAL [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
M AITLAN' D HOSPITAL. IT will be seen by a reference to our Mait land news, that the long pending disputes relative to the above .institution, have at length been satisfactorily adjusted. The course pursued by the Rev. Dean Lynch anid which has led to this result cannot but ensure for that gentleman the respect and esteem of all parties. It-is not necessary for us now to enter into a history of the disputes which have so longand so unhappily existed.; -as the prin cipal parties whose bigotry and intolerance caused those disputes have been removed .from the offices.which they,held,.itis better for all.parties that the .disputes should be buried in oblivion. We are informed that*the amicable ar rangement which was made at the last meeting appears to have -given general satisfaction, and all parties are now willing to admit that the Rev. Mr. Lynch has acted with much wisdom, and that he was perfectly right in his opposition to the man agement of the hospital, from a conscien tious conv...
CATHOLIC SERVANTS IN PROTESTANT FAMILIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
CATHOLIC SERV? ANTS IN PRO TESTANT FAMILIES. IT has come to our knowledge that there are certain parties in this city who are in the habit of compelling their Catholic ser vants to walk into the parlour every morn ing and be present at their prayers. This is a stretch of arbitrary power which no master has a right to exercise towards his servants; a stepping in between the ser vant and his Maker, in a manner which is quite unwarrantable, and which, whenever it comes to our knowledge, we shall not fail to hold up to public reprobation. We are quite sure, that there is not a Catholic mas ter or mistress in this city, who would so far forget themselves as to compel their Protestant servants to attend prayers with them against their will. We cannot but view such a proceeding as most unjust and tyrannical, inasmuch as many a poor girl would feel compelled to acquiesce quietly, whilst her conscience told her she was doing wrong, from a fear of losing her place.
Variet[?]s. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
?areltfrtu . -o MERIT AND ITS REWARDs.-The newspapers an nounce that Jenny Lind, a singer, is going to St. Petersburg, on promise of a salary of fifty thousand francs (2,0001.) per month. Thomas Carlyle, who writes books that set mankind a-thinking, lives in an obscure house at Chelsea, not realising 5001. a year by his writings. Fanny Ellsler, a dancer, a few weeks ago concluded an engagement at Venice amidst a shower of flowers and jewels, and then had a Cleopatra-like sail on the Grand Canal, with twenty bargefuls of nobility after her, while " Long Live Fauny, the divine artist t" was shouted from the multitude. At the very same time Mr. Wilder spin, who has conferred inestimable benefits on mankind by the establishment of infant schools, is announced as sinking into poverty, and in need of .a subscription for his relief. Achild, called Tom Thumb, passed through England and other countries in Western Europe in 184456, realising large sums for his exhibition as a dwarf ; the rece...
EDUCATION AT ROME. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
EDUCATION AT ROME. ,(From the Tipperary Vindicator.) It may not be known generally, if at all, that the schoolmaster in his travels has penetrated even into the Eternal City. Within these few years evening schools have been established for the instruction of the working classes of Rome. The founders of the system were two citizens, whose names deserve to be honorably recorded; they were Signor Michel Gigli, advocate, and Signor Giacomo Casoglto, a poor wood-engraver. The instruction given con sists in reading, writing, arithmetic, and religious teaching ; to each school an oratory is attached in which the scholars collect on holidays for religious service, and for games of exercise and diversion. There are in Rome elementary schools besides, in which children are taught reading and writing, leaving them to follow religious duties in their pa rishes; but the children are scarcely able to handle the instruments of any description of occupation before they leave the school, thus leavin...
THE IRISH RELIEF FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
THE IRISH RELIEF FUND. ,(From the Hobart Toon Advertiser.) " [?asu RELIEF FUND.-A third instalment, in the shape of a hill of exchange for the sumof fifteen hundredpoands is-to be remitted toDublin by the Post Office packet-advertised to sail this day or to morrow for London. This, with the-two former remittances of £1860, makes the handsome and cre ditable sum of £3360 from New South Wales, ex clusive of the very generous oferings sent from Port Phillip, making in all so far, very nearJdve thousand poundr.u We have reason to think that the next instalment from this colony will carry the figure beyond 50001., as we have heard of -one generous individual who expects to send from his own station in the District of Yass one hundred pounds. The sum subscribed at Bathurst has not, we believe, come to hand as yet, and thereare several stations in that very important district from which nocontributions have been hitherto made. It is not as yetio" late, as the Committee of the Irish Relief ...
MEDICAL AFFAIRS. "Non vivcre sed valere, vita est."—MARTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 February 1847
MEDICAL AFFAIRS. * Non rivcre sed Talere, rita est."-MAlTIA.L. In no country in the world does a physician rank so-high in grade as throughout the British dominions and in Anglo-America. Sir William Temple has ascribed to the faculty of physic the highest rank in learn ing and science. Dr. Johnson neither as senting tonor denying the claim, still attri butes to the order the highest degree of moral excellence and pure benevolence. In this portion ot the empire, we regret to say, that it by no means stands so high in general estimation. "A house divided against itself cannot stand," says the very highest authority. It is obvious that the jealousies and biekerings amongst them selves, have had their unavoidable conse quence, that of lowering "The Faculty,"' as a body, in public opinion, and of abating public confidenceinmany of them asprivate practitioners. The Australian Medical Journal still con tinues, we perceive, tb-hold on its way, and the last -number contains some matters on w...

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. IVWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1847. .AUSTRALIAN STEAM NAVIGATION AND .RAILROADS. THERaE aret'wo circumstances to be col ilected from the details of important public Soccurrences in the last intelligence from ~home that may be justly made the subject 'of congratulation to our fellow-colonists, as particularly refreshing to the sight in 'taking at' the present moment a prospective Sview of our affairs. We allude to the on ward movement of steam navigation on .the one hand, and the retrogression into the . abyss of despair of the railroad swindling :projectors on the other. The shipwrecks of the mighty leviathans " of steam-vessels which have .calamitously " occurred, so far from damping the ardour -or abating the confidence of the public, -whether as -men of science and of art, or of. enterprise in the pursuits of commerce and-in the outlay of capital, have had the effect of giving fresh scope to the labours 'of genius, and calling forth increased ener gy in-every pra...
