England. GREAT INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

iSnglautr. GREAT INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION. ('From the Illustrated London News. ) It would not satisfy the general or the special reader to detail the exact amount of glaziers,' carpenters,' painters,' and ironmongers' work ac tually performed on the great building during the past week ; it would give but a poor idea of the incessant and sufficient energy of the contractors, ?who, in .spite of all the whisperings find forebodings, are so convinced of their ability to keep their pro mise as to the completion of their marvellous task by the promised time, tliat they nave especially invited the members of the Society of Arts to hold a meeting within the structure on the 1st January. - Professer Cowper will read a. paper on the ma terials, &c, employed in the vast edifice. _ We may say that the glazing of the roofs and sides, and especially of the central avenue, seventy-two feet in width, has advanced remarkably, together with the flooring of the galleries ; and the offices for the...

Ireland. COMMERCIAL VALUE OF IRISH TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

Irilantt. COMMERCIAL VALUE OF IRISH TURF. {from the Times.) The public will recollect that just before tlie close of the Parliamentary session of 1849 Lord Ashley and Mr. O'Gorman Mahon startled the House of Commons with the announcement that a discovery had been made by which 100 tons of Irish peat, costing £8 might, by a further expenditure of £8 for labour, be converted into materials which, at the then market prices, would fetch nearly £62. The belief was consequently held out that ' 100,000 acres of Irish peat would be worth more than the whole region ot California,' while at the same time the calculations quoted were strengthened by Lord Ashley's assertion that they were the result of the experience of Mr. Owen, a gentleman of large pro perty, whom he knew to be ' one of the most discreet and high minded men in existence.' It soon transpired, however, that the infection of Irish precipitancy had communicated itself to these statements. Mr. Owen, in a letter to TJic Times, corr...

SIR THOMAS HASTINGS AND MR. COBDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

? I SIR THOMAS HASTINGS AND MR. COB DEN. ! A correspondence, including a provocation to j fight a duel, has taken place between Sir T. Hast ings, R.N. and Mr. Cobden, arising out of the following circumstances.' At the last Birmingham peace meeting, Mr. Bright was reported to have I a» used his hearers with a description of the trivi- j alities on which our apprehensions of war were made to rest. As a specimen of them he related that Sir T. Hastings, in his evidence before the i Estimates Committee, when hard pressed for the authority on which his suspicions of France had been conceived, at length quoted the opinion of the IfrencV*. Bishop of Madagascar to the required effect : on which Mr. Bright observed, ' Only imagine the j only authority upon which a British Admiral anti- I cipated war was an idle story told by the Bishop of! Madagascar.' Sir Thomas Hastings having read J the report of the speech, immediately wrote to Mr. ' Bright, apprizing him that he had misrepresented ? fac...

THE CITY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

? ? THE CITY ELECTION. Mr. Longmore has been proposed by the Catholics of Sydney as a fit person to repre sent their interests iu the Council. T hey have interests which to them are of great importance, and it is just as fair that such interests should be represented in the Legis lature, as the Squatting interest, or the uuimueruiui mceresu, or any oi me otner in terests so7 carefully provided for in the Elec toral Act. Thus much has been clear'y stated in the Address of the Committee, and is 'in strict accordance with the resolutions passed' at the preliminary meeting of the Roman Catholics A gentleman, however,; who proposed Mr. Longmore at another meeting, is represented to have said that he was not brought forward as a Catholic candidate. What is the mean ing of this apparent inconsistency ? - The answer is plain. There are interests, as we have said, affectiug the Catholic body, for the 'defence of which a Catholic member of Cou ncil is wan ted ;— -but m a tters referr i ng to....

MORE ANGLICAN "OPINIONS." [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

MORE ANGLICAN 'OPINIONS.' The results of the Anglican conference have been precisely what we anticipated. In Van Diemen's Land, Victoria, and South Aus tralia, the 'opinions' of the Bishops have met with nothing but opposition. In Van Diemen's Land the great body of the Clergy and Laity are xn airect aniagomsm wnu their, own Bishop, whom they denounce as a ' Tractarian' of the first water. At Ade laide Dr. Short has an equally anti-Puseyite set to deal with, but, as he is only a semi Tractarian, he has not so much difficulty with his rebellious subordinates as his Tas manian brother. At Melbourne, Bishop, Clergy, and people are pretty much alike, ! and if it were not for the episcopal caution which Dr. Perry puts on in writing from his chair of office, there would be little to dis tinguish the who'e body from a sect of Pres byterians. , It is natural that, at a time when the grounds of the Royal Supremacy are loudly called in question, and the theory of Epis copal Jurisdiction is fo...

THE GOLDEN ERA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

THE GOLDEN ERA. Although we cannot announce the ' re turn' of the peace, prosperity, and innocence said to have flourished in the Golden Age, yet it cannot be denied that we live iD a '?' Golden Era.' Whether we turn to the Hast or to the West ' Gold' glitters on every side. A short time since the ' glistening dust' of California was exerting more than a magnetic power in attracting the attention and enticing from our shores hundreds, nay, thousands of our industrious fellow-citizens, and thus, for a time, causing serious appre hensions regarding the injury likely to re sult to the best interests of the Colony from tli is unnatural drain on our labor market. But the ' Tide' is now turned from the '?'East' to the 'West.' The current of gold-hunters will be no longer in the direc tion of the Sierra Nevada, the Snowy Moun tains of North America, but to the western I ranges of the ' B'ue Mountains' of New South Wales. V hat the result of these golden discoveries may be to this Colony, t...

THE YOUNG LAWYER'S LODGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 May 1851

THE YOUNG LAWYER'S LODGINGS. ( From A Sunday in London. ) When I came first to reside in London (said 'I1., commencing his story), to study law, as a pupil of Mr, ? , of Paper Build ing?, I was a perfect stranger to the ways of the great metropolis, and was grievously perplexed where. to iix my habitation. With out a friend to guide me, I wandered up and mer.ts Furnished' met my inquiring eye, 1 forthwith knocked or rang, and requested permission to survey the accommodation promised. And sorely was I puzz'ed how to decide amidst the scores that I surveyed. All were dirty, most were dark, many were ' dear. Some were too high up, cthe:s too low down, others were fusty, others were hot, others admitted gales of air from all corners. In one the landlady looked sour, in another she was dingy, in a third she was vulgarly smart, in a fourth she was bold and impudent. Here the maid was flaunting, i.1. ? - _\. _ ? } y l i ? . i ? _l ? mere &:ie wa3 DiacK anu grimy j r.ere sue was iie...
