LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Adelaide Times.') Parliament still stood prorogued to the 19th of February, when it would meet for the transaction of business. The Queen and Royal Family were all well. The Daily News 'alludes to the possibility of her Majesty visiting the Canadas, and takin« New York en route.' It is not the first time, says tnat journal, tnat rumour has assigned to her Majesty an intention to make a trip to her North American provinces. . . The Daily News asserts, in a leading article, that the Queen was displeased with the paragraph in the speech to be delivered from the throne, which had reference to the Papal aggression :— ' Her Majesty considered it lukewarm, arid framed in such ambiguous terms as might be em ployed to shuffle through a difficulty, instead of ex lirussiiig tin; honest fi»/i -gs of a sovereign and a ' government insulted in dignity and in authority, Her Majesty, in common with tlie great majority of her subjects, feels very strongly on the point ...

' FRANCE. '. Prance has been enjoying all the. benefits of a crisis produced from no cause, and conducted upon no principle. The question of the chief authority in France has been a pure matter of personality ever since the downfall ot the Provisional Govern ment, and now the same statesmanlike test is ap plied to its ^Ministry. The majority of the National Assembly-did not approve of the President's Minis try, simply because it didn't.

THE QUEEN'S REPLIES TO THE PROTESTANT ADDRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

THE QUEEN'S REPLIES TO THE PROTESTANT ADDRESSES. {From, the Tablet.) One could not, of course, have expected that Ministers were going all at once to come out with the line they intend to adopt ; answers to addresses on a great question from which they are stiil separated by some months, must necessarily be worded with extreme cautionj and leave ample room for future explanations. Still, the answers her iviajesiy gave uu i L.uouaj' iu me \ji\,y ui London and Oxford and Cambridge ad dresses are extremely significant ; and by their silence, if not by their actual expres sions, we may at least infer a good deal on the aspect in which things present themselves to the minds of the Government. The tone of all the addresses is that of the old Church-and-State declamation against the Pope. The Lord Mayor and Aldermen growl at ' the Bishop of Rome's partitioning this country into pretended dioceses ;' ' an invasion of the Royal supremacy, an auda cious usurpation of her Majesty's prerogative...

THE PRICE OF FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

THE PRICE OF FLOUR. The merchants and millers who have rut: up the price o(jlour to its present 'unreason- able and exorbitant' figure, will have much to answer for their extortion. They cannot prosper by such iniquitous profit. No doubt a moderate advance in proportion to the demand and supply' would be perfectly fair, and no one could reasonably complain of R«inh an advances )buli hundreds of persons : wi'l suffer much from this monopolising spirit of a few wealthy cormorants. One large flour merchant, Mr. Smart, has offered to sell 50. bs. of flour at half-price, to those in want) or to give it gratuitously* on the recommendation of any clergyman. Now we beg to inform Mr. Smart that he would confer a much greater benefit on the poor of Sydney if he were to sell flour in small quantities to all persons at the rate of 10s., instead of 7s. 6d., per 50 lbs., without the certificate of any one. He would realise a handsome profit at this rate, would compel other merchants to do thesame...

REV. MR. M'NEILE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

A : -????? REV. MR. M'NEILE. (From the Liverpool Journal.) The cannibals of New Zealand carry out the lex' talionis of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a'tooth, with Hebraic scrupulosity. Their punishment.for a highwayman is to knock him down with their clubs and strip him of all he wears or carries. Their sentence upon a thief literally to rob him— and as gentry of that kind are not able to remem ber to a trifle all that may have been stolen^ their executioners are not very nice in calculating the quantity of retributive property they restore to themselves, provided they take enough. The juris consults of the Antipodes betray, however, their barbarism in their candour. They have not the civilised hypocrisy of this side of ' the ball we live on.' They call a spade a spade, and in place of delicate term ' restitution,' they use the homely word ' rob'1 in its literal nakedness, not having that refinement of the ' wise, who convey it call.' The canon of Chester is a cannibal in black ...

THE ELOQUENCE OF DR. JACKSON. [COMMUNICATED] [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

Eloquence, also, us a charm ing maid, no matter how faultless it is in. appearance, may sometimes commit exceed ingly foolish offences: not so criminal as censurable. We (of this article) are of this land, which has not yet, as the gentleman whose name is at the head affirms, dis played a fount, like that which 'Milton' drank from. We- neither desire to be loved as Poets; venerated as Philosophers; or feared as 'reviewers;' but we do desire, in all the diffidence, becoming our youth, to ca'l criti cal attention to the go'den arguments of one who has been more than once characte rized as an orator worthy of imitation, ' the 'Bishop Designate' of Lyttleton.'

DIRECTIONS ABOUT "THE DIGGINS." [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

DIBECTIONS ABOUT 'THE DIGGINS.' It is a natural and laudable wish for man to endeavour to improve his condition in life and to advance in the social scale by just and honorable means. The legitimate ac quisition of property is one of those means. Providence has unexpectedly opened up to us one of these hidden sources of wealth. And it is perfectly justifiable for every member of the community to seek directly or indirectly for a share in the recent valu able discovery of Gold in the Bathurst Dis trict. We hope that by prudence and foresight every man, woman, and child in New South Wales will come in for a share in 'the Gold Mines. It ia a wise dispensation of Providence that ' man must earn his bread in the sweat of his brow ' '?— henec when any man proposes to himself to acquire the means of procuring his bread by labour and the sweat of his brow, he shou d well consider his Jttaess to endure that labour and the grounds on which he rests his hopes of success in the undertaking.

THE GOLD AND FLEECE OP AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

THE GOLD AND FLEECE OF AUSTRALIA. Since the time of the far-famed ' Argc nautic Expedition' that sailed for Colchis some 3000 years ago, under the command of 'Jason,' in search of the Golden Fleece, this phrase has been in constant use, as applicable to Wool of the finest and most valuab'e staple. The recent ' Golden' discovery in tnis uoiony wm, in an prooa bility, be productive of a temporary injury to bur 'Golden Fleece,' and those two words so long united in friendly relation will, for a time, take up an antagonistic po sition, though in a'l likelihood they will soon again form a close and lasting alliance. But to lay aside all figurative expressions and to come at once to stern realities, no one can doubt for a moment but the dis* covery of Gold in Australia will for a time injuriously affect the Australian Fleece. kJLLulA 10 UUW UUliOU X\JX \*A\JL\A 1U VUU UUUiMU heart, that do what the Qoyernment may to prevent hired. shepherds from leaving their employment,' some will leave ...
