THE BLACKS AT MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 February 1847

TH?E BLACKS AT M1ORETON BAY. Ova readers are aware that several lctters from a correspondent at Moreton Bay, on whom we can place the fullest reliance, have appeared in the Chronicle relative to the recent shootings of the aborigines in the Moreton Bay district. The editor of the Mforeton Bay Courier is very irate with our correspondent and ourselves for the part we have taken in this matter, and he is also in high.dudgeon with the Attorney General for not 'having in stituted inquiries into certain matters in which the blacks are said to have been the aggressors. .In our fourth page will be found the evidence which has been taken before the bench of .magistrates.at Brisbane in compliance with the orders of the Go vernment-that an -investigation should take place. " The publication of this evi dence," says the A?orelon Bay Courier, "will be '.gall and wormwood' to the writers on this subject in the Sydney journals." Not so, however, but-quite the reverse, the perusal of that evidence...

GREAT EVANGELICAL ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 February 1847

GREAT EVANGELICAL ALLIANCE. (From the Guardian.) This great " (Ecumenical Council of Christians," as its adherents call it, was held last week, Sir Culling Eardley Smith was the president patriarch. We cannot be mistaken in saying that this is the first " (Ecumenical Council" admitted to by " One shilling tickets," and exhibiting ladies at the side galleries. One tone of enthusiastic self-complacency pervaded the whole oratory of the platform; the elevation of spirits was Bacchanalian, and theSynod reeled with magniloquence and self-adulation. Each speaker as lie rose up. professed himself overwhelmed by the moral grandeur of the scen.; lie could not describe what he saw.; it was unutterable, ineffable: lie could not describe what he felt ; it was a swell and an ecstacy. Such a sublimation and ebriety of common place, such an ocean of Exeter Hall poetry, never raged before. An audacious and profane application of Scripture, of course, accompanied these effusions. The alliance was de...

LORD JOHN RUSSELL ON THE "FIVE POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 February 1847

LORD JOHN RUSSELL ON THE " FIVE POINTS." (From Douglas Jerrold's WVeekly Newspaper.) "If I lose my honourable friend's confidence:" says Lord John Russell, his friend for the occasion being Mr. Thomas Duncomb", " I am sorry for it; but if he brings forward the five points of the Char ter, I shall think it necessary to give my decided opposition to such a plan." In other words, Lord ehn Russell is a Whig ; a liberal Whig; and not Chartist. There is an animal, the ornithoryncisus, sat has mightily puzzled naturalists. Now it is of duck; now of a lizard; and now of a kangaroo. hould Casti endow the lower animals with political rinciples, the ornithorynchus must be the liberal Vhig : its many opposite attributes curiously yet sppily harmonised wonderously fit it for the chla acter. It is beautiful-beautiful exceedingly-in is combination of profitable qualities, only shared n part by others.

faattann, -o (From the Maitland Mlercury.) MMIsORATION PrETITIo.-The petition in favour of the resumption of immigration, recently presented to his Excellency the Governor, has received 648 signatures in Maitland and the neighbourhood. The petition has been signed by all classes of the com munity. RonnsRa.-On the evening of Thursday last, about seven o'clock, some person stole from the shop window of Mr. H. Smith, High-street, West Mait land, two silver watches. Mr. Smith is uncertain whether the robbery was committed while lie was absent for a few minutes putting up a clock in a neighbouring shop, or while he was on the premises. It is rather singular that watches of much greater value than those taken were hanging in the window at the time, but were not disturbed. A description of the stolen watches will be found in our adver tising columns.

jile Eralatnb. -o (From the Wellington Independent.) KARORI.-ANNIVERSARY FETE. This year, as on former occasions, the inhabitants of this thriving district resolved to celebrate the anni versary of the colony at home, and in the way best suited to their own tastes. Therere were no sports during the day, but ample preparations were made for the festivities in the afternoon and evening. At three o'clock, several tables were placed on the green surrounding the chapel, and all the children of the district were regaled to their hearts content with bread, buns, and tea. Their ruddy faces evinced their high health, and their laughing looks of buoy ant spii'ts were proofs provided of their real unaf fected enjoyment. At five o'clock the adult popula tion sat down to a well furnished soiree in the chapel, with a number of their friends from Wellington,who preferred a walk to the country, and the free-and easy enjoyment of a simple rural entertainment, to the hIigh excitement of thel turf, th...

FLOGGING. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

FLOGGING. (From the Guernsey Star.) No servile punishment can be regarded with equanimity in a free country. Flogging is a servile punishment. It offends the citizen ; it disgusts the soldier; It covers the service with obloquy and odium. The exceptional cases, for which It is now reserved, are, we hope, daily ,becoming rarer in the army. If they are not, it is the business of the Government to take care that they shall be, by using all possible means to exclude from the profession of arms those whose minds can only be disciplined by disgrace and whose crimes can only be controlled by the lash. But, as Lord J. Russell, well knows, it is impossible to exclude bad characters from the army, unless you induce good ones to enter. This can only be done by an extension of those privileges and enjoyments which we have frequently enume sated. Diminish the time of service-give adequate pensions to those who have conducted themselves well-make barracks more comfortable and decent -proceed with...
