' I pitied thee, , , , Toot pains to make thee speak, taught thee each hour , One thing or other— when thou didst not, savage, Know thine own meaning.'— Shakspkabe. there is an island of considerable size »nA »Mirh in the world, and once it boasted of its pious peace, but this has long since left it, and the people there are savages in their manners— and savage*, strange to say, from taste. , It came to pass, that, after a long time, those who had departed from that island at the time quietness took its farewell of it, and who nad grieved much to witness how each day the inhabitants became wilder and more wicked, turned their eyes again towards it, and having prayed fervently and thought deeply, resolved again to visit it and labour in its relief. It was a holy resolution — which, like the loving act of old Tobias, was rehearsed before the throne of God and ap proved of. No...

Most of our Irish readers will know the truth of what we say, for Bishop England was one of the most ho noured of the children of this island ; but, perhapB, others may be less familiar with a name which, nevertheless, deserves to be held in lasting remembrance. For the sake of the latter, we will premise a very brief sketch of the leading incidents in the life of this great...

BBIEF ANALYSIS OF LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S LETTER TO THE BISHOP OF DURHAM. "Sic itur and astra." [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

BBIEF ANALYSIS OF LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S LETTER TO THii BISHOP OF DURHAM. ' Sic itur.ad astra.' This epistle to the Northern Bishop raises the noble name of Russell to a la mentable notoriety. * Twill adhere to it as a garment, not to be case off. Lard John being the deputed head of the State Church5 informs the Bishop that ' Clergymen of their own Church have been tne most jorwaru in leaunig tueir uucmi to the very edge of the precipice.' Now, mind, this is the same Church — or, to speak more correctly with Lord Fitzwilliam, this is the earae sect— --which, vampire-like, sucks nutriment from the life-blood of the nation to the amount of many millions per annum. This is the sect which keeps up the most costly ecclesiastical establish ment ever beheld by mortal eyes since the days of King Solomon in Palestine. And this is the sect which arrogates to itself a commission from above to deliver the pure Word of God, and no other. Lord John's announcement of the rot within it, proves that th...

BRIBERY AT ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

? SliiSrAT ELECTIONS. Never was a proposition more necessary than the declaration against bribery at elections proposed on Tuesday last by the Attorney-General, and by the Council, in tj,e plenitude of its wisdom, rejected. v««»r was reasoning more fallacious than ^wv* — — the reasoning by which this rejection was justified. The provision which renders a member liable to be unseated for bribery on the petition of the opposing candidate was said to be sufficiently stringent. Has not past experience shewn that such is not the case ? The same provision has existed from the first but do we not know that at nearly every election the tippling propensities of grog-loving voters have been freely ad ministered to by candidates and their friends ? And who ever heard of any at tempt to unseat a member on this account 1 During the very discussion which preceded the rejection of the Attorney-General's pro posal it was admitted that many hundreds —aye and even thousands of pounds had been drawn f...

MISERIES OF SLAVE HUNTING IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

MISERIES ' OE SLAVE HUNTING IN AMERICA. (From the Daily News. ) It is said there is nothing so grave that has not its ludicrous side. Even the Fugitive Slave Bill combines the comic with the serious in the incidents which mark its operation. The spot, too, where a matter so serious has been turned into jest is the last that would be suspected as the scene of such a metamorphosis — the puritan capital of the sober Massachussets. The Bostonians have turned into a source of amusement a law which was supposed iu uiiraieii me peace ui men city, vm me juj'- ciple of setting a thief to catch a thief they have lately been deriving considerable sport from making use of the law to evade the law. It appears that two 'slave hunters' named Knights and Hughes made their unwelcome ap pearauce one fine morning in the streets of Boston. Now this is a class of men detested in the north on account both of their object and of the manner in which, they pursue it. They turn the capture of fugitives into ...

REJECTION OF THE CATTLE SLAUGHTERING BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

REJECTION OF THE CATTLE SLAUGHTERING BILL. If the duties devolving on the Sanitary Committee, or ' Board of Health' as it is designated, of our City Couucil, have to meet with similar obstacles in every other branch of the important business entrusted to their management, to those they have had to encounter in investigating the particulars relative to, and remedying the evils, aming from the slaughtering of diseased cattle and the sa'e of diseased meat, this Board most assuredly might as well be dissolved, and its functions cease altogether. In a recent number of this journal it was distinctly pointed out that from the supine ness and the technicalities of the City Coun cil, their committee had reason to complain of the discouragement their labours had re ceived, and the practical uselessness of their recommendations. But the want of that support which was relied upon from the Le gislature must sink their hopes of success in their undertakings, into downright des pondency. It appear...

SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

SOCIALISM. The subject, of Socialism to which wo had occasion to allude very briefly last week, is one of too great importance to be dismissed with so little ceremony. The great facts which have given rise to the theory so desig nated, are of world-wide importance. They are exercising vast influences at this moment on the destinies of the civilized world, and will probably make themselves felt in some mighty convulsion even in our own time. The upheavings and abortive commotions of Chartists and Red-Republicans are mere warning movements. They do but show the tendency of things. Whether many of us may live to see the result, or whether by some unforeseen happy circumstances, they may be postponed, or even altogether averted, future history will show. Meantime, it will be very instructive to us who at the present epoch may be said to be the fouudcrs of a new nation, to watch events as they pass, and examine warily iuto ,tb* principles out of which they rise'. First then, let us ask, ...

HAS HER MAJESTY'S BISHOP OF SYDNEYPOWER TO CONSECRATE SUFFRAGANS? [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

HAS HER MAJESTY'S HISHOP OF SY'DNET POWER TO CONSECRATE SUFFRAGANS? We have smiled at many things in the Syd ney Morning Herald in our day, but we never, remember to have been more amused than on reading a paragraph in that journal on Saturday last, headed Diocese op Lyt tleton. After speaking of the extent of that royal Diocese, the writer proceeds:— « With respect to the consecration of the new Inshop, the Bishop of Sydney, at the request of Dr Jackson, has consented to forego, on this occasion' his acknowledged metropolitical right of consecra ' ting bishops within his province, and the consecra .tion will take place in Canterbury Cathedral, as the Archbishop aud the Dean and Chaplain are anxious thereby to make their connexion yith the new aet tlament that bears their name.' ?' Consented to forego !' Why no man knows better than Dr. Broughton that he can- no more consecrate Dr. Jackson, without Lord «7ctin Russell's orders, than he can Dr. Cowper or Dr. Steele, or any other doct...

THE LIBEL OF THE PROTESTANT " BISHOP DESIGNATE." [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

THE LIBEL OF THE PROTESTANT ' BISHOP DESIGNATE.' Dr. Lang has been punished, and very justly punished, with fine and imprisonment, for bringing false charges against an indivi dual member of society. Why then, we ask, should another Rev. Doctor, who, at a recent meetiug of his sect, at which the same Chief Justice who sentenced Dr. Lang was present, uttered a most false and malici ous libel against 132,000,000 of Christians, be allowed to go on propagating his slanders without any check ? '-? The meeting in question was confined to the sect of Protestant Episcopalians, and had for its ostensible object the completion of that sect's principal conventicle. With such matters we have nothing to dp. Bat the meeting does not confine itself to this very legitimate purpose. Most of the speak ers went out of their way to attack the Ca tholic Faith, and among others, Dr. Jackson gave loose to his tongue, and took an oppor tunity oi pretemng a most UDenous cnarge, which the Sydney Morninq Hera...

PERSECUTION AGAINST CATHOLIC SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 May 1851

PERSECUTION AGAINST CATHOLIC SERVANTS. (From the Tablet.) Our columns this week atiord some pain ful illustrations of the sort of temper which the paoximity of the Holy Catholic Church (oh ! word hated by this world with a deep intensity of hatred) is producing in the minds of many who are probably amiable enough in the ordinary relations of life. A Minister thunders forth to his already en raged congregation a holy exhortation not to° employ any Roman Catholic servants; or if they have any in their house, to dismiss I them at once ! This has been acted on in many instances. Protestant masters and mistresses have had the incredible hardness of heart to turn out of doors, to starvation or prostitution, poor, hard-working Catholic girls, whose only crime was their religion, who had served them faithfully up to the present moment, and whom thus to dismiss is probably to ruin for life. Bo those mas ters and mistresses reflect on what they have done? They are well aware, in the first pla...
