CONCERNING DIVORCES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 May 1851

CONCERN I iNG DIVORCES. J [Those who are aware that great laxity in regard to the marriage-tie is one of the phases of American ultra-Protestantism wiit be glad to read the following article from the Alia California.] Mr. Carr, representative frem this city,, has introduced to the Assembly a bill with the above title, giving to the District Courts 'exclusive jurisdiction to grant a divorce frnm the bonds of matrimony.' It enume rates the causes for which a divorce shall be granted, which are classed under seven heads, ?and it includes also several other sections, thought necessary to guard the parties and to ensure a correct administration of the law when the bill shall become such. Much might be said against the details or the bill, the ease witn which divorces couid be obtained under it, the almost unlimited chances for fraud, collusion aod knavery which it would afford. We shall not stop to canvass these. For it is against the whole principle of all laws of divorce that we enter ...

THE QUEEN'S SUPREMACY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 May 1851

THE QUEEN'S SUPREMACY. (From the Observer.) Mr. Anstey, the Repeal Member for Youghall, in Ireland, and a barrister-at-law, practising in the High Court of Chancery, in England, ha3 just published a pamphlet on the law of supremacy, considered in re ference to the Kouian Catholic Church in England. He describes his pamphlet as a supplemental chapter to another work from his pen,, relating to the ' Laws of England affecting Roman Catholics ;'' but, neverthe less, it is more of a primary than of a sup plementary character ; and as a 'legal ar gument' it is justly entitled to the appella tion of an original production. This pamphlet is carefully and cautiously limited to a disquisition of the legal defini tions and bearings of the case, withholding altogother any expression of opinion on the propriety of the Pope's Bull ; but still its tendency to a justification of the Pontifical proceedings is obvious upon a close conside ration. Under all the circumstances, how ever, the praise of l...

Country N [?] THE MURDERS AT MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 May 1851

Country N tog, THE MURDERS AT MAITLAND. (Abridged from the Afaitland Mercury.) The long pending inquest on the body of John A'Hearn terminated, on Monday last, at Maitlandy — the Jury finding that the body was A'Hearn's ; that he was murdered by William Hayes by several blows on the head ; and that there was no evidence to implicate any other person. The following is a chronological narrative of the frightful circumstances which accompanied this murder :-— About the end of August last (apparently on the 31st), A'Heam was seen alive for the last time, oemg taen lett in company with Hayes on rlayes farm. On the 31st August, a number of immi grants from the ship Lord Stanley arrived in Maitland from Sydney, and among them the family of the Stauntons ; about the 3rd or 4th Septomber John Staunton (the son) left the depot, and on the 6th September the whole family left it, and most probably proceeded to Hayes' farm, as they had hired with him. On the 13th November, Benjamin Cott visited ...

CATHOLICISM IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 May 1851

CATHOLICISM IN SCOTLAND. (From the Rambler ) Scotland has long been an example to her southern sister of skill and diligence in the cultivation of her material soil ; and the whole kingdom, from John O'Groat's house to Berwick-upon-Tweed, shews what can be done by resolute, energetic, and intelligent labour. A Scotch gardener is a boon to an English country gentlemen 5 and from the forest oak and larch to the mere pruning of a peach tree or propagating of a rose bush, there is nnt a wnnrilanri or a carderi in all England which does not owe some portion of its beauty and fertility to the shrewd toils of the canny north. If the members of the Association of $t. Margaret, now re cently established in Edinburgh as its head quarters, can- only work the spiritual soil of Northern Britain with the same success with which iheir agricultural compeers have cultivated their broad valleys and lofty hills, they will set an example to southern Ca tholics for which our warmest gratitude will be du...

[?] Extracts. DEVOTION TO OUR BLESSED LADY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 May 1851

jffti0feUaiteou# ISxttact*. DEVOTION TO OUR BLESSED LADY. (From the Rambler.) The extent of the insensibility of even the most devout Protestants to the true position of Mary in creation, must be personally en countered to be believed ; and it is in itself sufficient to show that they not only are without any definite rule of faith, but are tar from possessing that perfect spiritual gift which enables the mind to grasp and behoid the positive verities which the rule of faith defines. Especially does it display their in ability to realise the true doctrine of the In carnation. It proves what we have already said, that they do not comprehend the proper divinity of our Lord when he was upon earth, or his proper humanity now that He is in heaven. Not realising the first of these two doctrines, they are blind to the amazing height to which the Blessed Virgin was raised, by the fact that God took man's nature from her; not realising the second, they cannot conceive of her utill exercising...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Anti-Tractarianism in Sooth Australia. — The following remarks appear in a pamphlet pub lished by a committee of laymen in reference to what they consider the Semi- Popish proceedings of the late conference of Her Majesty's Bishops. The above report of the opinions of the clergy, the Com mittee are happy to state, has given very general satisfaction. No doubt some of the seniors would have been prepare! to express themselves more strongly upon a,few of the more dangerous dogmata of the Minutes. They were, however, anxious, without COmDromisfi. tn s«enrfi th« Ktiffra-res of as large a number of their body as possible. And in this they acted wisely. Thus, then, the clergy of the diocese generally are proved to be sound. One point now to be aimed at is, to secure for the ser vice of the church here a succession o£ men of like mind. With this view the influence given to the laity with respect to admission of men to the Dia conate ought carefully to be used. It is to be ...
