f$l ¢edelaneouu zxtract?. -o Wain DaLIeaYr.-When at the end of 1830 the Whigs came into office, Lord Wellesley was appointed Lord Steward of the Household ; and in 1833 he resumed the Viceroyalty of Ireland, which he held until the change of government in 1834. He then resigned at once his high office, not waiting till he should be pressed by the new government to retain it, as in all probability he would have been; he held himself bound in honour to the Whig party to re;ire upon their unceremonious dismissal by King William. Steady to his party, be was actively engaged in preparing the opposition to the Peel Ministry; arranged the important measure of the Speakership, the first blow which that Millistry received ; and with his own band drew the reso. lution which on the 8th of April brought it to a close. It cannot be affirmed that the Whig party was equally steady to him. On their accession to power, I have heard him say, be received the first intimation that he was not to return ...
LANDLORDISM IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 18 May 1844
LANDLORDISNM IN ENGLAND. IN our last, we just gave a little peep, en passant, at Irish Landlordism, and their horrible extermination of their tenants: undcrneathll we copy from the lManchester Guardian, a rather graphic picture of the position which English Landlordism at pre sent occupies in public estimation; long have they (the landlords) had the rod of class legislation exclusively in their own hands - they have had all the people's power, through the rotten boroughs, and the state of the elective franchise-and a good dcal of that of the crown, ever since they sold, forsook, or betrayed their King in 1688, to bring over a foreigner favour able to their wishes, and hostile to the people generally, whom they cajoled with the fine words. "glorious revolution," " Bri tish liberty," &c. OnI of the worthies took for a motto, Libertas et uatale solum, (li berty and my native !end), on which Swift humourously said ] ibetoas et natalo solum, Fine words; I wonder shere you stol o'...

I am enabled to inform you oflan occurrence that took place'a short time ago, which has given rise to a vast deal of scandal, and with which some of the first families in the country are mixed up ; and, strange to say, the matter has not yet been noticed in the newspapers. The following particulars you may rely on as strictly correct s Mrs. Colonel Howard, widow of the late Colonel Howard, formerly M.P. for the county of Wicklow, and whose beautiful residence, Castle Howard, is the theme of praise with all tourists, had a young male.proldge, a Mr. Godbold, in whose success in life she took a great interest. She purchased him a commission in the army, but after serving awhile lie retire4,-ind took up his abode with her. A short time since; the family being at Castle Howard, the. visitors were Sir Arthur and Lady Brook, with a Count and Countess Newkman, the count being a German and the countess an Irish lady, an adopted daughter of Lady Brook, who, before he...

M u. EnsTon,-Although I ;happen to be an in terested party, perhaps you will allow me to speak ,lit a blt, on tho ,lljeictsoof grsinig and agriculture When I say that the agriculturist (the rent payer in particular) is totally ruined, I say no mo!e than what every person who happens to be placed beyond she pare of Government House enlightenment, is awfully cognizant of. Our government has given to agriculture such a shock, as to paralyse, completely, the energies of every man in the colony, who is so miserable as to be obliged to look to it as a means of support; whereas, had the vote of the Council, to lay a duty of 2s. per bushel on imported wheat (3s. would have been better) been acted upon, the woek ing bands of the colony would not be without employment; the farmer would prosper, and the importer even (should importetioas be necessary, which may be doubtful, unless in ex'reme cases) would be no loser; fcr his profit would be just the same at 6s or 7s as it would be at 3s or 4a ...

MISSION TO THE ABORIGINES, AT MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 22 May 1844
MISSION TO THE ABORIGINES, AT MORETON BAY. TIlE Catholic missionaries, who aro every day gaining on the good will of our sable, but too long despised and neglected brethren, and whose hopes of final success are daily brightening, have by the last arrival from Moreton Bay, made a feeling appeal to the benevolence and humanity of the good people of Sydney, on behalf of their poor, helpless, naked charge. The appeal made by the Archbishop on the approach of last winter, to provide them clothing, met with eminent success ; but that clothing is since worn out, and a re newed application becomes necessary on behalf of these poor creatures, who are as well as we ourselves, created in the image, and for the glory of the God of the spirits of all flesh, nor can any act of charity be greater, or be more urgently rcquired, than this oin the behalf of beings, whoso voice or wants con only through this channel reach our cars. We are authorised by the Archbishop to make this fervent appeal to the...
STATE OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 22 May 1844
STATE OF FRANCE. WE give in our fourth page, a most inte resting review of a work on the present state of France-that France which, for three centuries, but particularly since the accession of Henry IV., has so greatly in fluenced the state of the public mind, and the fate of nations in Europe. The perusal of that review fills us with a thousand reflections, which we have not space in 'our present publication to give expression to. We shall endeavour, in our next,, to draw from it some arguments, and inferences, and warnings, which we ..hope may not be entirely lost upon us here; as shewing us what to avoid in legislation, and what to pursue; so as to escape the rocks upon which nations have split, and some times foundered.
