THE GODLESS COLLEGES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
THE GODLESS COLLEGES. (From the Tablet.) In our second edition of last week we took the liberty of expressing our total disbelief of the denial given by the Morning Chronicle to the assertions made some weeks ago touching a preliminary con demnation.of these odious and irreligious establish, ments. We have this week to deal with another denial pro ceeding through, rather than from, the Nation This denial is as follows : " We are informed, on the highest authority, that the statement published in a contemporary, to the effect that the new Irish colleges have been con demned by the College of Cardinals, is entirely un founded. The heads of the Catholic Church in i-e land have received no. communication to that cllict, or tending in that direction--neither has any authorised person whatever; and ecclesiastics very recently arrived from Rome pronounce it wholly unfounded. " We were prepared to find the report untrue. The liberal and profound policy by which Pius IX. is establishing peac...
Hartley. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
plartle, -0 (From a Correspondent.) A few weeks ago the inhabitants of this district were congratulating themselves osi the moist wea ther, which then was promising fair to compensate them for the losses occasioned by the long drought of last year. Nowe, we have scarcely a settler along the river who is not more than half ruined. A friend who crossed Cox's River the other day writes me word that nearly all the small settlers about Piper's Flat, anl in that direction generally, have lost their entire crops-that portion, of them which was cut having been carried several miles down thie river by the current, and tlhe rest beaten to The earth and utterly spoiled. M.any persons were obliged to quit their houses, th. ,water having in some places reached a height..of four feet in their dwellings ! The same f:ood had nearly proved the destruction of a ver- -keautiful .monument of stone, prepared here, ".nd on its way to Mudlgee, to be set up over tl].eremains of tflhe late Rev. James Dunphy...
British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
Iirittts` IEtracts. -0 TsEATMENT or DISEASED POTATORS.-Mr. V. Hlerbert Saunders, in a letter to the editor of the Cork Constitution on this subject, notices the state ment of a " Windsor Farmer," that " he left, last year, a field of diseased potatoes in the ground to rot as manure, but that in eighteen months after, when lie dug up the ground, he found them all sound, to his great surprise." Mr. Saunder says he does not believe in this wholesale metamorphosis, but recommends that the branches or stalks of all blighted potato fields should be pulled up, and added to the dunghill, provided that the potatoes are at the time in a state worth preserving. We take the fol lowing paragraph fromthe letter of Mr. Saunders: " In every case where the quantity of sound potatoes in a blighted field is worth preserving, place both your feet at each side of the blighted stalks and pull them up, hardening the holes with the soles of your shoes as you proceed, and dig out your potatoes as you want t...
THE POETRY OF PIG. "The sweetest musice'er I heard was pork a-frying."—BARNEY SHORT. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 13 February 1847
THE POETRY OF PIG. "Thie sweetest music o'er I heard was pork a-frying." -B.ARNEY SIIORT. We have had so many twaddling, puling, senti mentality-mongering poets of late, that it is " meat and drink" to us to fadl in with a son of the right sort of verse-a poet of. practical life, like the great man whose lines, as with a wreath of laurel, crown the head of this article. Barney Short was a great po'.t-would we could say ihe is, but alas, fult Troja. Barney is no more ; he was drowned, to the confusion of them who put their trust in proverbs; he died like a true son of Apollo, of the combined effects of whiskey and water; not that we insinuate aught against his moral character, for Mr. Short disdained to mix his liquors; but meditating mighty verse, under the inspiration pf a quart of " sperrits," by the banks of Lagan, the nymphs of that commercial river re ceived him in their muddy bosoms, and the great Barney lives now immortal only in his works, pub lished by the ingenuous and ent...

COLONIES AND THE MOTHER-COUNTRY.—OUR FORTIFICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 February 1847
COLONIES AND THE MOTHER COUNTRY, -OUR FORTIFICA tIONS. WIBN one of the most venerable, and certainly not the least intelligent members of the Legislative Council, asked a question of its president, our late talented ruler Sir George Gipps, what was to be done if, after the mode of Commodore Wilkes, an hostile fleet should be found at anchor in the harbour, he received for answer from Sir George (who, be it remembered, was by profession a military engineer, and giving him credit for what we do not know, from that which we do, he bore no small share of merit in that line) was to this effect, " Why, we'll burn them." Without enquiring how, or from whence our reliance was so firm on the truth of our Governos's declaration that we gave up all concern about the matter, and slept as quiet in our beds, as if we were under protection of the forts of Gib. or Valette. But we have no similar consolation now. " Wars, and rumours of wars," thicken in our frightened vision, and our ears are salute...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 February 1847
ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the Soubahdar on Mon day last, we have intelligence from England to the 4th of November, and we are in debted to the Herald for the following summary. Some interesting extracts will be found in our other columns. The distress in Ireland was increasing, and, notwithstanding the arrangements that had been made for the relief of the people, it was feared there would be most extensive suffering during the winter. Trade was, as usual at the commence ment of winter, dull, but not particularly so. The price of wool appeared to remain the same as at the conclusion of the last sales. Tallow had advanced " with con siderable rapidity : it is quoted at £50 per ton: the expected settlement of tho South American difficulties will probably check any further advance, but we do not think it probable there would be any decline for some months. Parliament was further prorogued to the 12th of January, when it was expected to meet for business. Dr. Short had been appoint...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 February 1847
TO) OOnRFIPONURNTO . -K -a INOUaaa.RR--We jire acquainted with the regula lions which oupht to bind the conduct of the gaoler towards felons under sentence, but we are not aware ofrthe authority by which the convict can be pre vented from being visited by his relatives or friends at seasonable hours. The cases of Messrs. Win leycer and Darvall were different from that of J. Terry Hughes. The nature of their punishment was not intended to be such as to prevent them from any solace that their means could purchase, as an admitted perquisite to the gaoler. As the public eye is upon the gaoler in his treatment of Hughes, and Hughes is at the same time a cautious and perverse 'man, no douceur it is possible may pass between them to occasion profit to the one and relaxation to the other. If INUIREa wishes .to see the prisoner, and will not be permitted by Mr. Reck, he had better make his statement to Captain Innes, who is the ~Visiting Magistrate.
LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 February 1847
LITERATURE. Mores Catlholici, Part XXI, is devoted lo anec dotes of the charity which prevailed in the " Ages of Faith," when Romanism had not been invaded by the hard-heartedness of Protestantism. Some of these stories are extremely quaint. Tile following are worth extracting :--" It was tie custom of the rich, in early ages, to give the tenth of their goods expressly to the poor. And this practice was by no means confined to the great, for we find many in stances of its observance in the middle and lower ranks, comprising the tradesman and the labourer. St. William of Rochester, who was a bakler, is ex pressly recorded to have always given to the poor the tenth loaf of his workmanship. In Burgundy, the growers of vines had the holy custom of giving, from time to time, some portion of their best wine to the poor, in order to obtain the blessing of Heaven upon their vineyards. A. writer of the 13th century speaks of a certain shoemaker who used to bring whatever remained of his prof...

THE NEW REFORMATION IN GERMANY. The Morning Iferald contains the following ac count of the progress of thli party which within the last year or two had raised the standard of revolt against the Catholic Church in Germany -: BEaLIw, JULY 27.-We have news of thie result of the synod of the congregations professing the apostolic faith, which has been held at Schnedide mulls, and it is most afflicting. So unblushing was tihe dental of tile saving truths of the gospel mani fested at this meeting, that Dr. Jettmar and his lay coadjutor withdrew in disgust before its sittings terminated. They represented the apostolical flock in this city, and in spite of all tihe persuasions and exhortations which 'Christian love and faithfulness could urge were unable to prevent the meeting from repudiating the Confession of tile Holy Trinity -the divinity of Jesus Christ, and tile personality of the Holy Ghost. Not only did the members protest against tile adoption of the three ecumenical creeds, but tr...
