THE REV. DR. M'NEILE' AND To the Editor of the Liverpool Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 15 May 1851
THE REV. DR. M'NEILE' AND POPERY. To the Editor of the Liverpool Joiirridl. biu, — 1 was present, as a spectator, at the Pro testant meeting yesterday, and had time and the temper of the audience permitted, should have felt tempted, at the close of the Rev. Dr. M'Neile's speech, to respond to his appeal to the' Protestant Dissenters, though not exactly in the manner he prescribed. I was struck with an unfairness in his remarks in two respects. First, it is unfair to infer . the disposition or the Romish Church, at the pre sent day, from its acts in ages past. How would Protestants like to be thus answerable for the deeds ol their forefathers ! Was there no intolerant persecution in the reign of that Protestant saint, Henry VIII., and in that of his gentle daughter, Elizabeth ? Did not a far greater number of Catho lics suffer for their religion, at the stake, in those reigns, than of Protestants in the reign of 'bloody' Mary ? The fires of Smithfield were often kindled, 'in 'the glo...

MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851
MOTtETON BAY. German Emmigrants. — A letter has been received from Mr. Neuhauss, notifying his intention to visit Moreton Bay as soon as he got the Docken huden to sea. We must hope that every facility and assistance will be given to him in his enquires and that some arrangement may be made for the commencement of a description of emigration which has now set in with such a steady current towards South Australia. Mr. Lord deserves the to bring this port into notice; and, in all proba bility, after the first arrival of emigrants from Germany, their reports would induce many of their countrymen to follow. It is suggested by Mr. Lord that the subject should be taken into con sideration by the meeting which is to be held in Brisbane on the 16th of the present month, and Mr. Neuhauss has been recommended to attend on that occasion. — Free Press.

AMBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851
AM Ml I ION. (From a Correspondent.) To entertain ambition is to worship a tyrant. ; every way despicable, hateful and horrible, whose only joy is our anguish, whose only hope is our despair. Now, is there to be found, in this day, among men, anv. who Hike more than one of the Saints of past times, and other countries) feel af fection for those who despise them and in sult them 1 Is there one to be found who not only bears without murmur the mon strous cruelties of an unjust person ; but clings to the injustices and to their author as the feeble infant to its parent 1 We await the reply. It is a sneer for our fo'ly.

a denial NrtD0 VICTORIA. Melbourne. -Bread is now eleven pence me four pound loaf, and we are told that it will rise to a shilling. It was no dearer than this in the j memorable year of 1847, in England, when wheat in Mark Lane sold for five guineas the quarter, and , an outcry was raised, that not only England but JJJllri/U*J W«lo ft'1* d '«?* ***«?* »«? — *- — - — ? other consumable articles have a tendency to rise with the price of bread, we are now paying tolera- ' bly dear for our provisions ; and therefore, along with free institutions, we are beginning to have tolerably free prices. Unfortunately, there are no statistics in the slightest degree reliable, to enable us to form any judgment as to whether or not the ( relations of ''supply and demand' justify this ex- ; traoidinary rise in the price of bread. The drought ? goes for something : and so do the fires of Black Thursday. Moreover, a considerable addition has been made to our population by immigration ; and that must co...
Miscellaneous Extracts. WILL ENGLAND EVER BE CATHOLIC COUNTRY? (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851
ijmtwuanfous iSxiract*. WILL ENGLAND EVER BE A CATHOLIC COUNTRY? (From the Eambler.) ( Concluded from our last.) 3. Further, we cannot help observing how singularly, in a kindred subject of thought, the popular mind is tending in the Catholic direction. The notions on the subject o? art, which are now gaining ground among all edu cated people, will of a surety most power fully affect the national mind, and predispose it to the Catholic religion. All at once Eng land is awaking to a consciousness that the fine arts are not, so many instruments for the tickling the senses and amusing a leisure hour ; but that they are a vehicle by which the soul expresses her most fervent and pro found notions and ideas. Art is more and more recognised as the link between the spiritual and the visible, as the embodiment of the thoughts of the immaterial mind in its intercourse with its fellows, anrl as a denizen of a material universe. Criticism on all works of art, on statues, pictures, buildings, mu...

MAITLAND. THE INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION. The following explanation of the objects contem plated in the proposed exhibition of colonial indus try, was given by Dr. Douglass at a recent meeting held at the Court House, Maitland. We copy from ? the report in the MaWand Mercwy : — j After some preliminary observations the Doctor then stated that when the first intimation of the in- ! tention to hold the Great Exhibition in London j came out, the Australian Society (of which he was j secretary) had been newly formed ; the committee of that society took the matter into consideration, with the view of offering assistance towards for warding the object of sending to London any colo nial productions ; the Horticultural Society being the older one, the Australian Society gave way, and left the matter in the hands of the Horticultural Society. Time passed on, and at length, when very near the latest period at which productions could well be sent, enquiries were made, and it was found that the Hort...
THE ALLEGED IMMORALITY OF CATHOLIC PRAYER-BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851
THK ALLEGED IMMORALITY OF CATHOLIC PRAYER-BOOKS. (From the Tablet.') An illustrious writer of the present day has truly and forcibly remarked, ' it is the boast of the ?« Caiholic Church that she keeps the young heart ' pure,' The boast is a just one. The Immaculate Spouse of Christ has an almost agonising desire to keep the young and unwary little ones committed to her charge free from the stain of impure thoughts, words, and deeds. But the Devil, who is impure as he is malignant and unholy sflpks. above all things, to make the world believe that the Church is the teacher and patroness of impurity. He raises a loud shout and clamour, bellowing out what he is anxious all souls should believe, that he may the more easily make them a prey to the very ruin about which they pretend to be so frightened. Specimens of this artifice of the impure spirit have lately been afforded by letters in the Times, signed ' A Protestant, Thank God,' and ' Another Protestant, Thank God,' in which the wr...
