VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

VICTORIA. Colonial Ingenuity. — We have derived con siderable gratification from the inspection of a new description of pump peculiarly applicable to the purposes for which it is intended : the credit of its invention and manufacture is due to Mr. Cunning ham, of Elizabeth-street. The principle on which it is worked will render water capable of being raised to a height of thirty-two feet, and to be con ducted if required, a distance of five hundred feet by the aid of a single individual. It is also capa ble of lifting one ton of water in a minute. The specimen we have inspected has been ordered ex pressly by Mr. Paton, for the purpose of keeping his cellars 4ry» and so manifest are its advantages, that other parties have also ordered them from the maker. The brass castings weigh upwards of 65 pounds, and present an additional interest from the fact of the metal being the production of the Ade laide mines. — M. D. News. New Literary Society, — On Monday evening was held the first ord...

colonial Krtus, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [The following extract from the S uth Austra lian Gazette presents a good specimen of the way in which ' Bills of Law Costs' may be swelled up, and how they may be cut down by an honest and Hpria;ht Judge.] 'SUPREME COURT—IN CHAMBERS. MONDAY,-; APRIL 8, 1851. (Before both Judges.) Miller v. Clark.— Tn this action, tried at the last sittings of the Supreme Court, the plaintiff re- , covered a verdict of £446, the amount sued for, being £2000. On the 3rd ins t., a summons was ! issued by one of the Judges, returnable on the 7th, calling on the plaintiff's attornies, Messrs.

The sum- ! mons concluded in these words — ' And in the j meantime all further proceedings in this cause j should not be stayed.'

[?] Extracts. WILL ENGLAND EVER BE CATHOLIC COUNTRY? [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

jHtfttellaneou* ISxtvacte. WILL ENGLAND EVER RE A CATHOLIC COUNTKY? (From the Rambler.') Whatever may be the reply which a man would give to the above question, few will be found to deny its altr.ost unparalleled im portance. Eew will also be found who will doubt that it is a question which every day acquires a more profound interest for all who speculate upon the destiny ot tins country. It once it was supposed to be the mere dream of visionaries,. it ia clearly now a' matter for the anxious consideration of the most Bhrewd and practical. It is mere childishness any longer to treat the possi bility of England's return to her old faith, as a phantom below the notice of a philo sopher and the statesman. A man only displays his own ignorance and folly, when he vents the obsolete commonplaces about the antagonism of Magna Charta to the decrees of Trent, and assumes that John Bull is so essentially and radically a Protes tant, that we might as well expect him to worship Juggernaut or Ju...

©ouitiri? N*to0, PENKITH.—The Rev. Mr. Keating, on his de parture from Penrith to Batlrarst, was met by his flock at St. Nicholas' Church, who presented him with a suitable address, and a purse, containing a handsome sum of money. He made a verbal reply and thanked them for their kind donation. He then read nravers in the Church, when all his flock were in tears for the loss of their good pastor. The people accompanied him as far as Emu Ferry, but would not allow them to proceed any further as the day was very hot. He then bid them all an affec tionate farewell.— Communicated. Departure.— The Catholics of .Bathurst have sustained a severe spiritual loss in the removal from Bathurst of the Rer. Mr. M'Lenon. On Sunday last, after delivering a most eloquent sermon, the Reverend gentlemen announced to his congregation that he had received the commands of his superior to remove to Windsor. On Tues day last he proceeded to Hartley, on his way towards the scene of his future mission, accom...

THE PAPAL RESCRIPT, AND THE CATHOLIC ARISTOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

THE MPiLM^ftffi'' °ATH0 (From the Catholic Standard.)

But if noble lords who appear, at least, to be mem bers of the Catholic Church, will, careless of the injurious effect that may follow from their proceedings, indifferent to the perni cious use that the avowed antago...

England. THE GREAT SHOW, [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

IBnglrtitti, THE GREAT SHOW, (From the Liverpool Journal.) We are getting tolerably near the period wnen we may begin to estimate what the 'great Exhi bition of 1851' will really turn out to be.-- One fact, very doubtful some three months ago, is now. ascertained— that the event will come oft, not be cause the requisite funds have been handed lli since that probability was discussed, but because, pledged ♦™ Ait. «v» mfronf tlip Prince and his -5o-commis- sioners have resolved to run all hazards, to antici pate their means without any remorse, and to leave the question' of the funds to parliament, should the public, as seems likely, decline to pay for this costly royal project. 'Every body' will go to seethe Exhibition : but every body hesitates about paying preliminarily for that to witness which they will again have to pay— and pretty heavily, too, so far as the provincial ' every body' is concerned. If -.Prince Albert chose to turn showman, he ought to have conducted the speculati...

CATHOLIC SPEECHES AT THE LIVERPOOL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

CATHOLIC SPEECHES AT S'HE LIVERPOOL MEETING. (From the Frecmarts Joucnal. ) The Rev. J. Walmsley, Roman Catholic priest, rose to address the meeting. He was received with the greatest uproar, and a considerable time elapsed before he could obtain a hearing. On order being partially restored, the rev. gentleman proceeded to observe that he would not trespass long on their attention, and if they would only give him a fair hearing, he would be very brief.- He knew he was addressing} men of calm understanding, when that understanding was brought to bear upon the ordinary business of life : but he would say that when our feelings became excited— *when the pas sions became aroused by the excitement of a reli gious discussion — there was then danger, even with men of calm understanding, of being too greatly excited. Allow him, then, to ask what was all this hubbub about 1 (cries of ' Oh, oh !' and hisses). He was not one himself who was easily carried away by excitement. He was a John Bull...

Somctftic fintelltaeitce. THE ANGLICAN BISHOP OF SYDNEY. The following letter, which has been circulated among the members of the ' Diocesan Committee,' was published in last Monday's Herald. ? Sydney, 17th March, 1851. My Lord Archbishop, — In compliance with the request of a very numerous meeting of the Diocesan Standing1 Committee of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, and for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, held by special sum mons, and at which I presided, on Wednesday last, 1 forward to your GFace a copy of the Resolutions which were then proposed and unanimously agreed to. The purpose of the Committee, in desiring that their Resolutions should be thus placed before your Grace, was thereby to exhibit to the Church at large a solemn record of their adherence to those principles upon which, in 1843, I grounded my public protest against the intrusive exercise by the See of Home of any ecclesiastical jurisdiction or authority within her Majesty's realm. ...

CANDIDATES FOR THE NEW COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

CANDIDATES FOR THE NEW COUNCIL. The Electoral Act just passed, such as it is, must rule the destinies of this colony for some time to come, either for good or for evil. This Bill favours the ' Lords of the Woolsacks' to their heart's content. The Squatters will now reign paramount unless the discretion and. 'good sense of the great body of the ' Town and Country Electors' return such members as will be faithful to the true interest of the country and of the people at large. There is now no use in grumbling at the defects and manifestly partial features of the 'Act.' We must take it, as a man does his wife, for better for worse. There is however one consolation; we are not bound to the 'Act' till death doth us part. If this ' law-made damsel' should turn out for ' worse,' we have it in our power, not like the poor wedded husband, to cut the knot, improve our condition, and compel this sulky dame to work to our satisfaction. But this hope of improving our condition under the Electoral...

THE MONTH OF MARY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

THE MONTH OF MARY. Our antipodean position often impairs to a certain extent the poetical beauty of the Ecclesiastical year, and sends our hearts back to the old world to which the sacred seasons, though applicable in all essentials everywhere, are more closely aud fully adapted. There is something so strikingly emblematic in the season of Spring, as we remember it in the land of our Fathers, when all nature clothes itself anew with verdure, after the cold and dreary desolation of winter, that it^is impossible for even the most unimaginative to fail in seeing how peculiarly fit such a season is for the cele bration of Easter. The world has been doing penanoe, and is at length' absolved, coming forth from its retreat with a glad face to welcome its risen Lord. And after the Easter Festival has been kept, then comes that month of May, of all months in the year the most lovely ) 'midway between stern winter and garish summer, the month of May is the symbol of bright and per petual yout...

DR. BROUGHTON. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

DR. BROUGHTON. In another part of our paper will be found a highly characteristic letter addressed by the Protestant Metropolitan of Australia, to his superior of Cauterbwy. About six weeks ago some half dozen professional gen tlemen met in his Lordship's office to pass a series of resolutions ' for the information of the Church at large,' relative to certain proceedings of His Holiness Pius IX. The chief purport of these resolutions was to re cord the steadfast determination of these very respectable individuals, to abide by the principles asserted in a certain document put forth some years ago by their ecclesias tical chief, by way of maintaining the Queen's ecclesiastical jurisdiction in oppo sition to that of the Holy See. These half dozen professional gentlemen, with two or three of the Sydney curates, constituted what his Lordship designates 'a very numerous meeting of the Diocesan Standing Committee of the Society for Promoting Christian [i.e., Protestant] knowledge, and for ...

THE CITY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

THE CITY ELECTION. Since the foregoing article was written, we find that the Catholic body have been taking active steps to secure the re turn of a member for the City of Sydney who, as belonging to their own communion, shall be able fairly to represent what may very properly be called the Catholic interest. All other 'denominations' are amply repre sented in the Legislature, ^he Catholic Church alone, though is far more numerous than any other communion except that which has the prestige of state patronage, is and has ever been wholly unrepresented. It is well known that Catholics, thoroughly and heartily united as they are on one sub ject, hold every shade of opinion in matters relating to politics. The consequence is, that unless where the interests of the Church are directly concerned, it is very difficult to get them to act in concert. The notion en tertained by Protestants that all Catholics are ' Priest-ridden' is in the highest degree absurd and untrue! There are no people s...

THE EARL OF CARLISLE'S IMPRESSIONS OF AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851

THE EARL OF CARLISLE'S IM PRESSIONS OF AMERICA. (From the Illustrated London Neios.J The following are the most prominent portions of the lecture delivered by the Earl of Carlisle at the Leeds Mechanics' Institu I iion :— ,. , , It is my wish to touch very lightly upon any point which among us, among even some of us now here, may be matter of controversy. I, however, honestly think that the experience of the United States does not as yet enable them to decide on either side the argument between the established and voluntary sys tems in religion. Take the towns by them selves, and I think the voluntary principle appears fully adequate to satisfy all religious exigencies. Then it must be remembered that the class which makes the main difficulty | elsewhere, scarcely , if at all, exists in America. It i3 the blessed privilege of the United States, and it is one wnicn goes very jar ^ counterbalance any drawbacks at which I may have to hint, that they really have not, as a clas9, any poo...
