Thiere is, \e understand, little or no corn in store, "and our mills are half idle, notwithstanding the un precedented rise in the price of meal and flour. 'file supplies, therefore, are not coming in ; and what can if be attributed to P That the large farmers have their granaries well stocked in every part of 'the couritry, is admitted on all hands; that they can procure prices for their corn, not only remunerative, but affording exorbitant profits, everyone knows. Why, therefore, do they not send it into market, and not leave the people exposed to starvation P The answer is plain. The policy of our enlightened Whigs, pledging them not to interfere with the provision market, occasions it all. To enrich the merchants and large farmers, they leave the people t, perisli. Had Sir R. Peel done so this time twelve muth, the rour would be In as dreadful a condition as they are at present. But he acted otherwise, and thely were saved.

OPINIONS ON PUBLIC EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
. OPINeioNs.oy. PUBLIC-EVENTS. (From tie 7mnes.) EARL FITZHARDINOE AND IIIS Bl3ROTHRS.-It Is "'iffiiult to understand the very unfraternal fart that is at present being enacted by Earl Fitzhardinge. We can admire the sense of justice which .caused Brutus to disregard the ties of kindred in the con demnation of his own son, but we can find nothing heroic or respectable in a nobleman who goes round hias family wantonly administering moral 0, punches on the head" to his nearest relatives. The Hon. Grantley..Berkeley was a. few. days ago the sole victim of the politico-pugnacious.propensitlles of the earl, but he has since .turned round in a menacing attitude upon two more of his brethren. Captain and the Hon. Henry Berkeley have had " official " notice of the intention of Lord Fitzhardinge to withdraw from them his support, which is equivalent to an announcement of his future hostility. Family .quarrels.are always sad things.to contemplate, but it is very grievous to behold a " big bro...
REVIVAL OF TRANSPORTATION.—PUBLIC MEETING AT QUEANBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
-REVIVAL OF TRANSPORTATION.-PUBLIC MEETING AT QUEANBEYAN. ,In compliance with a requisition which appeared in the columns of the Sydney Herald, the Warden of this district, J. F. Murray, Esq., having con rened a meeting of the inhabitants of-the district of Queanbeyan, for the purpose of taking into con sideration the questions suggested by the Report made by the Select Committee of the Legislative Council on the renewal of transportation, a meeting was held at the Court-house on Monday, the 8th instant. About two o'clock the Warden took the chair, and opened the proceedings of the day by stating the object for which the meeting had been convened. Mr. C. CAMtPBaLL movetd " That the Report made during the last session by the Select Committee of the Legislative Council, respecting the renewal of . transportation to this colony, is at variance with facts and unsound in. theory.

I'RAcE WITH AN ALLinAToa.-=Several flights of, large curlews were seen passing over the boat, rest ing on the fiats in its neighbourhood. Whilst en-: deavouring to procure some of them, I was placed in a slfficiently awkward positions running the risk of becoming myself a fresh meal instead of pro curing one. I had stripped to swim across a creek, and, with gun in hand, was stealthily crawling to the outer edge of tile flat where my intended victims were, .when an alligator rose close by, bringing his unpleasant countenance-much nearer than was at all agreeable. My gun was charged -with shot, and the primitive state-of nudity to which I had reduced myself precluned the possibility of my having a second load. To-fire, therefore, was useless, and to • retreat difficult, for I had wandered from the boat across tile bank, on which the water was fast rising. SThought there was no time for, and before my com panions could have.reached me the tide would have flooded - the place sufficientl...

[From the Mlorning Chronicle.] FLOGGING.-Flog, flog, flog ! Much of the wis- dom of our ancestors appears to have consisted in practising the operation indicated by this talis manic monosyllable. In the good old times, every body flogged every body. Britannia should have been depicted on the national coin. in the act of brandishing a cat-o'-nine tails, instead of wielding the emblematical trident. An Anglo-Saxon, it should seem, is never quite happy unless he is em- ployed in cutting and scoring the skin on the back of another Anglo-Saxon.. We are all " farriers" born. Follow an Englishman from his cradle to his grave, and he will meet you at every turn in the character of flogger, or floggee. From the first wanton slap inflicted by maternal tenderness, more in sorrow than in anger, on the nobler portion of a British infant's animal economy, up till the moment when the full-grown Briton is seized up at the gang way, or lashed to the triangle, it is nothing but slap, slap-flog, flog....
INUNDATIONS IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 February 1847
INUNDATIONS IN FRANCE. (From the National.) At Arles the continued rains menaced an inunda- tion similar to that of 1840. Those anticipations were realised, and the waters of the Durance over- flowed their bed, and covered the plain of Puy- Sainte-Reparade by two different points, viz., by the high road from Aix to Pertuis, and by the canal of Marseilles. By following this direction the waters caused the destruction of the banks of the canal of St. Esteve, and thus inundated a considerable portion of that country. At Montbrison continued rains, accompanied by heavy thunder, caused the inunda- tion of the town. The cellars of the houses adjoin- ing, the quay were filled with water, and several houses in the Faubourg St. Jean were swept away. At Andrezieux, the part of the town situate on the Rhone has been levelled, comprising 18 houses, and all the traces of the adjoining railroad are lost. The barracks of the gendarmerie are but a heap of ruins, and several persons perished. The ac...

TI-'i SYDNEY CHRONICLE. IVEDNiSDAY, FEBR UARY24, 1847. THE COLONIAL CHARACTER DEVELOPED. - THE TBANSPORTATION SCHE ME ABANDONED. " India mittit ebur ; molles sua thura Sabmi;." VIRGIL. T'* is well known, as illustrated in the above quotation from the Roman poet, that each particular country'has some particular com nmodity for which it is remarkable-some curiosity for which it is famous-some dis ease for which it is proverbial; nor is it less evident, or less worthy of remark, that the people of each of these respective coun tries are.distinguished by a propensity and aptitude for some particular science or art, in which they attain supereminent excel. lence; their moral and social habits also converge towards some specific virtue which sheds a lustre on their character, or tend to the indulgence of some special vice, which subjects them to odium and reproach. In this manner England, renowned for its superlative " roast beef," has attained eminence in the twisting of cotton and the s...

'JrtiE? cs.. -o 'F.aE TRADE NOTIONS AT CONSTANTINOPLE. The Morning Post has the following pleasantry at the expense of free trade, in a pretended letter from Constantinople :-Sir : A ludicrous incident, in con nection with free trade, had occurred at Constanti nople before the departure of the last mail. A re spectable British merchant had summoned before the Moolhta one of his clerks, a sharp witted Greek and a favourite, on a charge of a serious nature, It would appear that the fellow was in the habit of adulteratiug, for his private benefit, certain pun cheons of rum entrusted to him for safe, thus cheat ing the public, defrauding his master, and bringing his name and merchandise into contempt. When the merchant had stated his case, the Moolha asked the Greek what he hlad to say for himself. The knave coolly replied that it was a shamef::l act of cruelty on the part of his master to bring forward so trumpery a charge, for, even if it were proved, he had done nothing beyond puttin...

[COPY.] 7b To . A. Duncan, Esq. MY DEAa Sia,-In reply to your note of tids morning, requesting to know if I had told Mir. Burnett " that the Duke of York (aboriginal) had reported to you that his daughter had been shot by white men, and that she had then three balls in her," I can most positively state, I did not. About two months back, in a conversation I had with M?r. Burnett, I mentioned what the Duke of York had Sreported to you, namely, that the woman in question was then either dying or dead in premature labour, caused by fright, which I had heard from you a few minutes previously; and, although I might have alluded at the time to a rumour then prevalent in the town, that the woman had been shot, I am perfectly satisfied that I never gave that report as your statement. Immediately on my reading the report of Dir. Burnett's statement in this morning's Courier, I wrote to the Police Magistrate, contradicting that portion of it alluded to in your note, and requesting that he woul...

A little reflection will, we are sure, convince the writer that in so good a .cause it is altogether unnecessary to resort to per sonalrecriminations. And further, the publication of the letter would, we have not tie least doubt, sub :ject us to a criminal prosecution, which we are par ticularly desirous at this time of avoiding.

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 February 1847
-o - THE PowDaR MAGAZINE.-On each succeeding Sunday numbers of the inhabitants may be seen surrounding the site of the powder magazine, specu lating upon the design of the building, which, so far as operations have as yet prcccedlcd, appears anything but easy of elucidation : the most puzzling part is a tunnel sullticiently large to adhoit a man's body, which communicates with the interior of the building. It was suggested by an urchin yesterday, that this was to enable parties to make their escape from the wild bullocks which not unfrequently visited the spot. If the young philosopher be cor rect in his conjecture, the Government certainly deserve credit for so philanthropic an idea, but its precise connexion with a powder magazine we are at a loss to discover.-P.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editorof the Sydney Chronicle. SIR,- The Moreton Bay Conrier attacks your correspondent again ; but that impartial print has &nbsp; not yet proved that the late proceedings against the blacks were legal, and that none but murderers have been shot. Your humble servant called for an in- vestigation, hoping to put a stop to the practice of black-shooting, which was the order of the day; and for which pious work pardons have been offered to prisoners of the crown, and cash to all other Her Majesty's loyal subjects. The evidence adduced in the investigation is all on one side, because there are no witnesses; the testimony of the blacks is not evidence, and those who have gone out to apprehend them can easily make a statement to excuse them- selves,and establish their claims to a reward. Any unprejudiced person, by looking over the late num- bers of the M.B. Courier, will find that the corre- &nbsp; spondence fro...
