REVIEW. Francs. Her Governmental, Administrative, and Social Organisation Exposed and Considered, in its Principles, in its Working, and in its Results. London, Madden, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 22 May 1844
?JEViEw. I [lrom the Tabictli France. Her Governmental, Administratl?e, and Social Organfration Exposed and Considered, in its Principles, in its Worwking, and in its Results. London, Madden, 1843. This is a very different sort of production from the disquisition on French manners and customs. that we lately had the trouble of dissecting. The author is not a more bookmaker, but writes to con vey information, andwith a serious, and on the whole, a worthy purpose. Differing jfrom him toto rcol in his opinions about religion, in his notions about revolutions, and in most of his views (appa. oently) about the structure of society, yet in the one view to illustrate and enforce which this book has been written, we heartily and fully concur. The view to which we refer is that of the baleful ten. doncy of the omnipotence of administrative centra. lization. The book is a critique on the doctrinaire .principle of government. Taking its statements to be substantially accurate, we look upon it ...
REPEAL IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 22 May 1844
REPEAL IN IRELAND. We have received news (too late, however, for this day's impression) of the most im portant kind from Ireland. Messrs. Slheil and Wyse (the latter a stubborn anti-re pealer), and Dr. Murray, Archbishop of Dublin, have condemned in the strongest terms the conduct of government, in exclud in all Catholics from the juries on the State Tlials. From this there is but one step to Repeal. In short it is becoming everyday more and more evident that there is no other hope, or chance of redress of the mountain of Irish grievances, An aggre gate meeting has been held in Dublin. The Ministry seem infatuated.
MEETING OF THE WORKING CLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 22 May 1844
MEETING OF THEl WORIKING CLASSES. -o A numerous meeting of the labouring classes of Sydney took place on Monday evening last, at the School of Arts, Pitt.street, for the purpose of peti. tioning his Excellency the Governor to remove prison labour from off the public works of the city, with, the view of affording employment to the working classes at present unemployed. His worship, the Mayor, (who was arrayed in his official robes), pre sided on the occasion, His Wonsrrip, having read the requisition con vening the meeting, said, that as Mayor of Sydney he appeared to preside at it. The requisition was respectably signed; and the object of it was, to petition his Excellency the Governor for tire removal of the prisoners employed on the public works. He would not enter into the merits of the subject, which would be tea: gone into by the speakers. Mr. Councillor Danrve said, that the tenor of the resolution just placed in his hands was such as must be well known to every individual in ...

THE MORNING CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 22 May 1844
THE MORNING CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 1844: &nbsp; &nbsp; " Be just and fear not : &nbsp; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, &nbsp; Thy God's, and truth's." Shakspeare. THE CITY CONSTABULARY, OR POLICE FORCE. WE have heard from so many quarters, par- ticularly from the neighbourhood of the Surry Hills, complaints of the inefficient protection afforded to the peaceable in- habitants by the constabulary force, that it becomes our duty to bring it before the eye of the proper authorities, as well as that of the public. We are not disposed to be querulous, or to find fault with every thing done by the government; but the whole affair of the Sydney constabulary is such a jumble of clashing authorities, and such a confused heap of jarring principles, that, as might be expected, it not only works badly, but needs immediate revision. While the government paid the consta- bulary of Sydney, it very properly kept the control of it in its own h...

ltecdSttlleets 3s Exttsrts. -o EMINENT LAWYERS. The following is a list of some of the eminent lawyers of the last and present age: Lords Eldon and Stowell-sons of a bargemaker and small corn dealer, at Newcastle.under-Lyne. Lord Stowell borrowed £40 to go the circuit, and both supported themselves for a time by their talents as private tutors. , Lord Tceterdcu-sun of a barber at Canterbury : he received an eleemosynary education, but obtained the means to go to college; whilst there, he enjoyed from a company in the City of London an exhibi. tion of £8 per annum, until be took his degree. Some years since, in dining with the company, he alluded to the circumstance, and expreseed his gratitude. Lord Clifford-prior to his being called to the bar, was articled to a solicitor near Exeter.. His rise was owing chiefly to the interest of the, Mar. chioness of Conyngham, to whom'he was distantly related. Lord Langdale, the Master-of the Rolls--not very long since an accoucheur,. and' marri...
THE HANOVERIAN INVASION—THREAT DISPELLED. Frankfort on the Mein, Oct. 23, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 May 1844
T 'H'ANOVERtIAN 1NVABION-THREAT DIS PELLED. Frankfort on the Mein, Oct. 23, 1843, SBan-lo Galtgnani's Messenger of lhoe 18tlSiof this month, I find a paragraph copied fromn the Dublin Evening Mail, or at least under the head of extracts .from that paper, in which it ir sitated that the King of Hanover had offered bhisniece theIloah'of 20,000 Hanoverian soldiers, for the suppressilon. of the Repeal movement in Iroland. ;The anti.lrlsh party 'must be to a sad plight indeed to have to.resort to soch hollow statements, and as a sincere well.wisher to the great cause of Ireland, I beg to be allowed to reduce this precious piece of information to its real value. Whether Wellington, Peel, and Co., have asked to borrowo the said 20,000 Hanoverian troops, by way of a return for the English money unoloe Ernest Augustus receives, I am, of course, not able to say; buit so much at least is certain, that the King of Hanover rannot iend what he has notl himself. According to the 'official returns,...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE MORNING CHRONICLE [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 May 1844
TO THE EDITOR OF THE MORNING CHRONIOLE' -o San.-In your paper of the 21st you set forth the advantages a person accused of sedition or libel in Ireland has over a person similarly circumstanced in France. Few persons will dispute the accuracy of your statement, or yield unwilling praise to the beauties of the British constitution, as theoretically extended to Ireland. But, Sir, what was the practice in Ireland ? When, before the time of Perrin and of the lamented O'Loghleo, was an unpacked or impartial jury heard of when the crown was the prosecutor I Was not the argis of freedom that palladium of liberty, converted into the direst engine of oppression when a Catholic was a party r For the last ten or a dozen years impartial juries have first been known in Ireland, with some ex ceptions in the north, and the people accordingly began to have a respect for the law. But can the same be expected with. the present government, and with'oflicers of their appointment P rjithe case of Mr. O'...
MR. VAN BUREN ON REPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 May 1844
?B. VAN BUREN ON REPEAL. --o (From the New York Plebeian.) We are extremely gratified at being able to lay before our readers to-day the following highly interesting letter from Mr. Van Buren, on tie sub.. ject of Irish Repeal. It was written in answer to the communication of a,committee, acting on behalf of the friends of Irish liberty, in the vicinity of Milledgeville, Gas., tendering him an invitation to meet with them on the 4th of July, 1843, to devise suitable measures relative to the existing state of affairs in Ireland. Mr. Van Buren has taken such a view of the Repeal movement as was to be ex. pected from one who, on all occasions, has proved himself the unwavering friend of popular rights, and the consistent advocate of civil and religious liberty throughout the world.. His sentiments, in thi" letter, are conveyed with the usual clearness and ability for which the productions of his pen are eo remarkably diatingJistied. The friends of Irish Repeal hase, indeed, great reaso...

THE BIG SQUATTERS' GRIEVANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 May 1844
THE B3IG SQUATTERS' GoRIEVANCES. XALTnOUGH we did not intend-for the pro sent,to touch again on the squatting question, bur regard for the worthy writer df the following-letter, requires .at our hands some further explanation .of .the view we have taken-on the subject. He -says very truly, that -we are not sufficiently acquainted with the question-we admit -it-we never said we were-nay, we well know we.are not; nor do we know who is. Those who talk inost loudly about the mniittr in Sydney, only know it like ourselves, by hearsay; and what the more diminishes -the .vdiue.ofitheir knowledge is, that it is all ex parte, ob tained through their overseer's,who, of course, give it in their own favour.; or else they have it from resident squatters, whose 'feelings are naturally biassed by interest. The public generally, therefore, we are persuaded, (as O. S. B. says of ourselves) are -not acquainted with the squatting system.; and as it is an interest of great indeed, paramountimportance, ...
SQUATTERS' LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 May 1844
SQUATTERS' LAWV The following letter describes a most unworthy and most disreputable practice, by masters as well as overseers, at the squatting stations. When a man is " due" for his ticket, he is (when a useful and valuable man) delayed on various pretences for months," as a slave; so that the very reason which ought to procure him favour, or at least justice--fidelity and honesty, are the very causes of this extra punishment. An instance was related to us of a man being thus detained in the Moreton Bay district, 'for six months beyond his time. He was refused a-pass to go to the Com inissioner to forward his petition for a ticket of leave. Such conduct should be, in every case where possible, reported to this Excellency, who, we feel quite assured, would afford ample redress. We have heard of other instances of !tyranny over assigned servants in the bush, iwhich, when 'their conduct is good, are in .excusable. When a committee sits to ex 'amine evidence as to the squatting questi...

COLONIAL LAWS. Wa havo hoard of a newly'arived immi grant, who agreed' with a'hiisterin Sydney, for one year, with the liberty' to" either party to be off at a month's notice; the man was, however, suddenly dismissed without a cause assigned, and on asking for (not a month's, but) a fortnight's wages )for the time he served, the master took the written agreement, and tore it to pieces; and on the man summoning him before the Sydney Bencld his evidence would not be heard, nor received. We have stated facts as they occurred on Saturday last before the Mayor. If this be law, (as of course it is,) such a one-sided law does not peper haps exist in any other part of the world. It ought to be changed.
BISHOPS POMPALLIER AND WILSON. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 25 May 1844
BISHOPS POMPALLIER AND WILSON. IN the Herald of yesterday the expected arrival of these Right Reverend gentlemen is stated. It is true that they are expected, which we have known some time, but we waited until the events took place, before we announced them, as we are not always sure of the fulfilment of what we expect. One says in Flautus Nam multa printer spem, solo multis bona evenlse. His friend replies At ego otlam, qul speraveiint, spem decepisso multos. Hope having (as Plautus says) deceived, many, we thought best to wait for facts, rather than mention hopes.
