EMIGRATION FROM IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
EMiaORATION EROM ERELAm (From 'the Tablet.) One of the saddest documents that it ever fell to our lot ito read, was the Address to the Farmers of Leinster, ?from the Rev. James Maher, of Carlow, published in the Freeman of last Friday. This address, which we regret -not being able to give, in extenso, well deserves the at* tentive consideration of all who Interest themselves in Irish affairs, because it is not merely an expression of opinion, but a fact of verv high significance. ?Leinster is not the most destitute part of Ireland ; Carlow, we suspect, is by no means the worst part of Leinster; Mr. Maher has long been known as one of the most active, zealous, and laborious Priests in Lein ster. and by his connections, representing the very best part of the agricultural industry of Ireland — thrifty, in dustrious, intelligent farmers, who, whatever may be the case now, in other times, were prosperous and wealthy. Mr. Maher, speaking with the utmost deliberation, now counsels all with...

Foreign Summary. UNITED STATES [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
dfovtiun Summary TTNTTED STATES. The long-looked-for measure, which it has been hoped j would effect a compromise between the present conflict- | ing interests regarding the slavery question, has at length j been brought forward in the Senate by Mr. Clay. The I prominent features of his plan may be substantially I described as proposing the admission of California as a I State, with suitable boundaries ; as establishing terri- I torial governments over all other newly-acquired coun- I tries without referring to slavery, which is to be left to I the decision of their inhabitants ; as assuming the debt I of Texas, in consideration of her relinquishing all claim to any part of New Mexico ; as adopting more efficient legislation for reclaiming fugitive slaves ; as abolishing all traffic in slaves in the district of Columbia ; and, ? finally, as declaring it inexpedient for Congress to abolish slavery in that district, without the consent of its citizens, as well as of the State of Maryl...
IRISH RELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
IRISH RELIEF. On Friday last Lord John Russell developed a small part of his plans for the relief of 'Ireland. On that occasion he told the world what relief he proposes to afford to the distressed unions. Ireland, it seems, en account of various loans made to it since 1839, owes no less a sum than £4,483,000, odd shillings and pence. Of this not inconsiderable amount more than a fourth part, or a million and a quarter, are due for sums ad vanced against the vast majority of the people to build workhouses, in order to apply the detestable ' workhouse test.' The rest is money advanced during the famine with what we really believe to be very humane inten tions, but on the principle of so applying whatever was lent or given, as not to develope the resources of the country ; not to be the basis of future improvements ; not to take a single step in advance ; not to aid the country to turn the present calamity to account by making a commencement of newer and happier methods of treating th...
Legislative Council. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
fUgt&lattoi coumtl* In consequence of the indisposition of the Colonial Secretary on Thursday, the consideration of the E'sti mates and of several Bills in Committee was postponed, and but little business was done. The only matters on which any discussion or remarks arose were on the Hyde Park Enclosure and Lien on Wool Bills. On the second reading of the first mentioned measure being moved Mr. Wentworth stated he had been entrusted with a peti tion from several parties, whose properties in the event of the proposed enclosure being sanctioned would be in jured, and in which event they claimed compensation. There was also another question to be considered — the expense that would be attendant on the making of the enclosure, and under those circumstances he suggested ; the reference of the Bill to a Select Committee. -The' Colonial Tk.easur.er- in reply, concurred with the course suggested, and a Committee was appointed. It transpired in the course of the latter gentleman's ob...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
ENGLISH NEWS. News has reached the colony from England up to the 12th -April. In consequence of only odd papers having been re ceived the intelligence is but meagre. The Constitutional Bill was in committee in the Commons, but only some two out of its thirty-nine clauses had been got through, when the house adjourned for the Easter recess. The measure was exciting great interest both in and out of the house, and had com manded attendances on the nights of debate of nearly 410 mem bers. No less than fourteen amendments ot different clauses were given notice of. One, however, for the Legislature being composed of two houses had beeen lost. A fear however prevailed that the measure would be ' shirekd ' for another Session. C correspondent of the Times writing from Caserta near Naples, under date of April 1, notices that His Holiness the Pope would re turn to Rome in the course of that week.

THE GORHAM CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
THE G011HAM CASE. There has been a great meeting of High Church Clergymen to protest against the decision of the Privy Council, and also, it i& said, to consider what steps should be taken on the part of those Anglicans who hold the Catholic doctrine of Baptismal Regeneration. The proceedings of the meeting seem to have been private, but it the Times speak truly, the Highest ground was taken, and very plain opinions expressed on the subject, of the Royal supremacy. Ancient Councils were quoted to show that the interference of a civil court in Ecclesiastical matters was always repudiated, and that Presbyters who appealed to the civil power were excommunicated. We watch all this commotion among our Anglican friends with great interest. If there be still the depth of earnest straight-forward purpose to do right among the leaders of the present movement, which actuated the originators of that which took place twenty years ago, we. may doubtless look for similar fruits. Catholic ...
SYDNEY CORPORATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
SYDNEY CORPORATION BILL. The consideration of this Bill in Committee is set down; B for this evening. Corporations are sometimes defined to K be ' bodies' without souls, our Corporation however cannot K bo brought under this definition, as it seems to have a' |I; soul and a very ' sensitive' one too. For the members- || as well as the friends of the Corporation have exhibited M symptoms of keen sensibility for the supposed insult I offered to their municipal dignity by the introduction of I this Bill into the Legislative Council. But we cannot, (;| for the life of us, see any just grounds for such virtuous I indignation on account of the very necessary step taken 1 by the Government to place the citizens and their mu- I nicipal functionaris in better working order, and .to I ensure a more satisfactory management of civic affairs 1 than that which at present unfortunately exists. I On the whole the Corporation has worked well as a I first attempt at carrying on civic business by civi...
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. EDUCATION—No. II. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
tobTgTinal W^11sponi)encb. EDUCATION— No. II. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.), 1 Gentlemen, — Nothing is more amusing or sad, according1 to the mood and purpose oif the moment, than the totally different in terpretations of the same f;tcts offered by different men. I presume tq say that the use made of Julian's apostasy by an advocate of the National Schools, and by a friend of the Denominational System, is a case in point. The one says, Julian was educated by the clergy ; k» LMmo ,„ annctntp ? t/jprfi'nrp. the elere-v are incompetent, if not dangerous, guides in education ; the other says, this same v worthy emperor, when he could afford to ayow openly his apostasy, was espttcially careful to prohibit education to Christians, clergy and laity both, therefore, he very heartily feared them as inauential trainers, spite of their failure in his own particular case. So much for the possibility of men with differing creeds and principles writing or reading history together, ev...
THE SYDNEY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
THE SYDNEY ELECTION. The declaration of the Poll was made by the Mayor on Saturday at the Hustings, The result of the Polling, as given in our last issue, was that announced by the Mayor at the Town Hall. The votes in the different wards were hurriedly made up, and as it subsequently appeared some errors occurred. In Gipps Ward there was an error of 22 votes on Dr. Lang's majority. The real number being, Lang 127, (not 145.) and Holden 169, (instead of 165.) and in Macquarie Ward a mistake was also made, as the Poll instead of being Lang 147, and Holden 156 was, on examination, found to be Lang 148 and Holden 167. These corrections reduced the Rev. Gentlemans majority from 56 to 24, but subsequently another vote was discovered in the successful candidates favor, which was an addition to his majority. At noon on Saturday the rain poured in torrents, but nevertheless there was a very fair attendance at the Hustings. The Mayor, said, it now became his duty for the second time in the co...

(To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) CORONER'S INQUESTS.—DR. TIERNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 1 August 1850
(To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) CORONER'S INQUESTS.— PR. TIERNEY. Gentlemen.— The brief but excellent article in your last number, turning into just ridicule the attempt of some writer of a leading article in the Herald to control the Coroner in the exercise of his official patronage renders it superfluous to say anything more on that portion of the production. Your castigation also of the offen sive prejudice which dictated the insulting allusion to my country and my creed, must checli any further detraction on this subject. You will, I am sure, make allowances for. those personal feelings, which impel me to solicit, that I may be permitted to add a few words on what more especially concerns my character and my interests. I cannot but feel anxious to have the answer to the interrogatory ?? Who ia Dr. Tierney ?' involve something, more than the mere declaration of the interrogator himself, ' He is an Irishman and a Catholic'— inasmuch as that Judicial officer Mr. Ryan Bie...
