RAILROADS AND NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
RAILROADS AND NEWSPAPERS. (From the Times.) .Our insertion of the letters from " Cato," on the subject of railroad monqpoly, has brought down upon us a furious blast of displeasure from the north. Had iEolus himself let loose all.his hurri canes upon us, his " Great North," North-Eastern," his "Eastern," and his " Western," there could not have been a more terrible concourse of squalls. The monarch for whose leese majestas we pay this intolerable penalty is not content with the most extensive and most profitable monopoly which this .nation over permitted in private hands. Besides a monopoly of traffic, he now claims a monopoly of public opinion. The press must submit to his im .priinatur. In .his especial favour we .must make an exception from our well-known invariable usage. Mr. Hudson, with a species of non segduitur which would-certainly lead to many a catastrophe if it were ,practised upon his own rails, argues that the Times possesses a monopoly because it charges more for adve...
SCARCITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
SCARCITY. (From the Spectator.) The Daily News, exhorting the Government and people of Ireland against giving way to panic, sums up the actual state of available resources " The stores of food already in the country, or on their way to it, are sufficient to feed the people till next harvest. There is a very considerable amount of home-grown grain and Indian corn in private hands in Ireland. About the middle of August there were in the various depots 430 tons of oatmeal; 7,500 sacks, 13,000 barrels, and upwards of 5,000,000 pounds of Indian corn meal, besides 8,000 bushels of Indian corn. The stores since that time have rather been increased than diminished The Commissariat sent out large orders for Indian meal and other grain to the United States by the packets of the 4th and 10th of last month, and further orders are to. be sent by the packets of the :present month; so that large supplies may be ex pected in the course of six weeks. Commercial -letters from New York mention large s...

THn MAIZE Caop.-In the neighbourhood of Singleton the crops of maize are remarkably heavy this year, The flats upon which they are grown, being well drained by intersecting creeks, have not suffered from the continued wet, in the same manner as those in the vicinity of Maitland. A NEW DIsoRaaa.-The Coolies in the employ ment of H. Scott, Esq., of Glendon, are afflicted with a terrible disorder, which has lately put an end to the lives of four or five of them.

THE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
THE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. We have 'been informed on the authority of Mr. Wentworth himself, that he does not expect that his famous Report will be adopted by the Council. We have the pleasure to concur most fully in this view. The demonstration of the public opinion has been so decided and overwhelming in its force, that none but the most obstinate and obdurate could venture to oppose its might, 'The ensuing session, being the last before a general election must take place, the M.L C.'s who desire to retain their seats, will not under any circum stances however favourable, of a local or personal nature, for their -re-election, ha zard a vote so unpopular as that for the adoption of the Report.

THE CATHOLICS IN PRUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
TRHE CATHOLICS INPRUSSIA. (From the Freeman!s Journal.) We translate the following from the Ami de .la Religion.: We have announced that the King of Prussia, " yielding to the just complaints of his Catholic sub jects in the Rhenish provinces, was about at length to allow them to have an organ in the periodical press. Notwithstanding, we have not been able to conceal.from ourselves our distrust and inquietude at the.name of .Dr. Bruggemann, charged by the Prussian .government with the duty of making the necessary arrangements to replace the Rhenish Observer, the .Protestant journal, with a Catholic one. That our fears on the subject were not ground less, the following very interesting letter will prove " Coblentz, August 18, 1846. -" You probably know already that the cabinet of Berlin has conceived the project of establishing a governmental press, devoted to its interests and con secrated to the.defence of the principles of order J and stability. This project may appear strange-to ...

(REVIEW.) (From the Tablet.) TI'he United Irishmen; their Lives and TIhres. By R. R. Madden, M.D., M.R.I.A. Third Series. .Three Vols. .Dublin: James .Duffy. 1846. These most melancholy, pages, exciting. fewother than. painful sensations; teeming with miserable recollections ; with dark, cloudlike masses of suffer ing and oppression, .relieved now and again with .flashes of the most devoted courage, and of the most heroic patriotism, are more a warning . than a history; more a beacon to guard.from wreck than a monument to excite emulation or preserve the memory of an example. The United Irishmen ! Was there any society of " United Scotchmen," when Bruce cast ofl the yoke of Edward P Were there .any " United Welshmen" while the struggle of theBritish Princes could be maintained against England. .The word Irishman should have been -enough-but the time was not then come, it is not yet come-but its approach is visible. The word Irishman should be enough to make the bearer of .it unite w...

The tidings that tell of thy wreck and despair ; -Ah, deep are the wounds thou art doom'd to endure, .And where shall we look for a-cerate to cure P Too long, wretched land, have thy sons been op press'd By boasters deluded-by hirelings distress'd Driven forth from their "shielings" - unpitied, unfed-.

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. .SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1847. STATE OF THINGS. DUrING an actual .dearth of events, the politician keeps his faculties in vigour for occasions as they may hereafter arise by the exercise of his mind in the process of ape .culation. This is the case, from the Mi nister who is placed at the head of all the state affairs to the least important official in his employ-from the mighty Secretary for Foreign Affairs to the humblest attache of the diplomatic corps. It is, from the nature of things, also the beneficial prac tice, the invigorating habit of every writer to whom the political department of the ~ournals and magazines of the Bay is en trusted by the proprietary who embark in the hazardous enterprise of literature, as a source of profitable trade. The affairs of Spain were the absorbing subject of the speculative powers of Euro pean politicians at the date of the last intelligence from that quarter of the globe. What will be the immediate result of the late roy...
