IRISH PROPERTY AND IRISH POVERTY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 February 1847
IRISH PROPERTY AND IRISH POVERTY. (From Dosulas Jerrold'w Paper.) AWehave alarmed the organs of Irish landlordism. They are startled at the comprehensiveness and effi ciency of the plans we have proposed for removing .pauperism from that unhappy land, and rendering -the peasantry self-sustaining. Our proposals for bringing three millions-of acres Intocultivation and intersecting the rountry with railroads, saithowu in flictingone farthing of taxation on any class, have scared the wits of some of our Dublin Editors. They insist on-the Tvested interestas' of snipes and woodcocks in the bogs, and, on behalf of money mongers and " stags.' protest against any Govern ment interference with the iron ways of the green isle. The bog of Allen is to remain as it was -in the days of Brian Boroo, and woe to the Saxon who presumes to drain off its sanctified waters. We are sternly reprimanded for our temerity in daring, to suggest that the wages of an Irish agricultural la bourer ought to exceed ...

BENEVOLENT ASYLUMS.—THE LAND-HOLDERS AND THE TOWNSFOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 February 1847
BENEVOLENT ASYLUMS.-7-THE LAND HOLDERS AND THE TOWNSFOLK. The late meeting at Parramatta, so praiseworthy in promoting the cause of the Benevolent Asylum in that town, has re called our attention to a grievance of which the inhabitants of our towns, -and of this City most especially, have such good reason to complain. To the irretrievable disgrace of the pro transportationists, at the recent public meet ings, an invidious distinction has 'been attempted to be drawn in the published list of voters, between the holders of pro perty in land, and the upright tradesmen, shopkeepers, and other residents in towns and hamlets. The means were worthy of the end. The weapons they maliciously hurled will recoil and break their own heads. Let us look at the battle-field, and see how matters stand. Whilst the body of Landholders seek for a renewal of that odious system which was a.fruitful source of riches to them, they are still, as they always have been, reckless of the sufferings and exhaustio...

SKETCHES OF POLITICIANS. MR. T. DUNCOMBE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 February 1847
SKETCHES OF POLITICIANS. MR. T. DUNCOMBE. Mr. T. S. Duncomle is the most gentlemanlike demagogue of whom we have any recollection. Of course we speak of the exterior man alone, not desiring to go the length of assuming that other men, of perhaps more ardent patriotism, but of manners more rough, may not possess quite as many of the real qualities of the gentlemen, those which are independent of conventional customs, habits, and dress. In those externals, however, let their worth be what they may Mr. Duncombe is certainly dis tinguished from the Members generally ofthe House of Commons, so much so that a stranger entering the assembly would naturally observe the singular elegance and finish of his attire as distinguishing him even in a place where well-dressed men are rather the rule than the exception. We have been almost tempted to think, too, that In proportion as his tribunitlan displays grow more bold, and his principles more democratic, he has become more and more anxious to pr...
FIRES AND LOSS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 February 1847
FIRES AND LOSS OF LIFE. (From Lloyd's, London paper.Sept. 20.) On Sunday, shortly before four o'clock, a most alarming fire, by which an aged female lost her life, broke out in the premises No. 80,'Little Bar tholomew Close, WVest Smithfield, a very narrow and densely populated neighbourhood. The house in question is occupied by numerous families, and the deceased, a person named Jane Gould, tenanted the back room first floor. At the time before stated, some of the inmates were alarmed by perceiving smoke in dense bodies entering their bedrooms. As soon as possible a search was made to find out the cause, but no sooner had the inmates reached the. staircase, than they became aware that the premises were on fire, and when they opened the door of the deceased s room, a most frightful sight presented itself, the apartment being in a general blaze, and in the middle of thp floor was the deceased, who was on fire from head to foot. The police, .with the aid of the inmates, succeeded in g...

PIUS IX. AND THE ROMAN PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 February 1847
PIUS IX. AND THE ROMAN PEOPLE. The Semaphore de Marseelles of the 12th inst., quotes a letter from Rome of the 8th, giving an account of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, on which occasion the Pope was conducted in triumph to the church of the Madonna del Popolo. where it is usually celebrated. "From the date of the publication of the amnesty," says the writer : - " The Roman people resolved to give the Holy Father a public testimonial of their gratitude, and decided it should be on the 8th instant, the Feast of the Nativity. A subscription was accordingly opened for the purpose of erecting a monument des tined to commemorate that act of clemency, and a temporary triumphal arch representing the intended monument was built on the Pizza del Popolo; its summit and base were surrounded with statues, sym bols of religion and of the virtues of which Pius IX. is the model. Inscriptions extolling those virtues, in appropriate and affecting terms, adorn the co lumns. A rich ca...

TuE TESvERANCE CONVENTION.-Tom flood lias capitally said of some teetotallers, that they think they have a right to believe themselves beauties, simply because they are not beasts. Assuredly, many of the water spouters, recently playing at Covent Garden Theatre, are of this notion. It would be difficult to brew or distil any beverage stronger or more deleterious than much of their language. The American apostles of temperance -like many other saints-have made themselves especially notorious for unseemly words. Never was.water dirtied with fouler words. The Reverend Thomas Braynard, however, of Philadelphia, has settled the question by shifting it upon the shoulders of weak woman, whon lie twitted with an indiscre tion (now of a few thousand years standing) in a very shabby spirit. HIe said " one woman had ruined the world by persuading a man to eat, and it was now for woman to show an examplehy persuad ing him not to drink." Eve having plucked the apple, it was the duty of her daugh...
DEPUTATION OF THE COUNTY OF CORK TO LORD JOHN RUSSELL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 February 1847
DEPUTATION OF THE COUNTY OF CORK TO LORD JOHN RUSSELL. (From Douglas Jerrold's Paper, Sept. 20th.) The Cork Rrporter has published a copious ac count of an interview lately held between Lord John Russell and a deputation of Irish gentlemen, at which the Chancellor of the Exchequer was also present. The object was to point out to the Premier the appalling condition of the Irish people. and suggest appropriate remedies for the present distress and the impending famine. The Rev. Mr. Gibson, secretary to the Mallow Relief Committee, read a memorial of a most impressive character. It de manded loans for poor landlords, with which to improve their property, and implored the Govern. ment to compel rich landlords to give employment to the people. " Here," says the memorial, " the strong arm of the law should be stretched furth without hesitation to protect the interests of the people, and compel them to discharge the duties of good landlords." It then states that in barren and mountainous d...
