IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
IRELAND. 'iom the latest intelligence which has been re • eived, it appears that the condition of Ireland is 'still as deplorable as can well be conceived. The following is a portion of a letter from the Rev. T. Hardiman, parish priest of Kilmecna, in the arch diocese of Tuam : " At all events, if my poor people he doomed to die of starvation,as in all appearance they are, my * hands shall be innocent of their blood. I shall not venture to decimate them, unless there be at least 300 allowed for Halfparish, and 000 for Kilmeena. And, as the long-threatened new works are in play, 5000 men a day are as little as can be safely named for work in this district. In fact, I could not ex cept five men out of the general roll of distress in the whole length and breadth of this parish. Only that I know it is useless to appeal to " the powers that be," I would warn them not to tamely look on 'any longer whilst thousands are starving unheeded, Sand I believe I may add, unpitied too. But expe rie...
Maitland. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
iattlanllb -0 (From the Alaitland Mllercry.) Two CutL.DoaN STaYINo.-On Sunday, George Piercy, a small settler living at Close's Swamp, near Morpeth, left his home about ten in the morning, accompanied by his three children, but shortly after told them to go back to their mother. The eldest, a boy of eight or nine, accordingly ran back, think ing his sister of six years old was following him with her little brother, a child of two years old; on her back. Some time having elapsed, however, without their appearance, their mother got alarmed, and sent for Mr. Piercy, who, with the neighbours, made every search for them throughout the day and night following, but without .efl-ct. On Monday morning, Piercy came in and gave information to the police of .the loss of his children. About mid day, however, they were found near Four-mile Creek, about five miles from where they had strayed. A settler in that locality observed them passing his hut, which, with some difficulty, he induced them to ...
Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
Port lbillip. Tins TA SlANIANS.--We take the following some. what startling statement from a report of the pro ceedings of the British Association for the Advance ment of Science-" A paper by H. B. Davies, Esq., was next read, on the Tasmanians-who command so much interest as having been extirpated from their country, and sent to Flinders' Island within these few years. It contained some very curious information respecting this race-for instance, the writer stated that he had seen an unweaned infant smoking a pipe, and thata woman would eat between fifty and sixty eggs, larger than a duck's, at one meal. The chairman stated that among them there was to be found traces of four distinct languages, and that they were altogether distinct in race from the people of Australia. A conversation arose, onthe reading of this paper, as to the effect of the climate on the digestive organs. Mr. Ogilby stated it to be no uncommon circunmstance for an individual at a single meal, to eat 12 lbs. mea...

DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
DUNGOG. This fine district is in the most flourishing con dition. All the settlers are in good spirits, and the cattle are as fat as they can roll. The stretch of land skirting the river from its source in the Mount Royal Hills is covered with luxuriance. The Indian corn is wonderfully strong ; it would be worth a journey from Maitland alone to see Mr. Brodie's immense maize crop-it is impossible to imagine its extent. The distlict is likewise most healthy, no new case having been reported as being received at the hos pital for a long time. We have had a succession of floods for the last month ; the creeks and roads have been in a fear ful state. Februry 16th, 1847. SINGLETON. THE WEATHER.-On Wednesday last we were boasting to ourselves that the weather then appeared to be entirely cleared up, but we were very soon doomed to disappointment; for in the evening the rain recommenced, and continued pouring down, with greater or less force, till midnight on Friday Since then we have had ...
