MR. LONGMORE'S ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

MR. LONGMORfc'S ELECTION. It affords us very sincere p'easure to record our thanks to Mr. Longmore for his manly straightforward address to the Electors of Sydney. The tone in which it is written is quite in accordance with the high character for candour and singleness of mind which flint, nontlomnn Koovo nmnnff nil nnrt.ioo In answer to the invitation of his Catholic friends, Mr. Longmore professes himself ready to deserve their support, as a Catholic, by pledging himself to use, when occasion offers, the knowledge which he of course possesses of the position, wants, doctrines, ond nrin/iinifla nf flip Cnf.hnlirt linr?\7 fnr t.Vi All* advantage and protection. We can not con ceive that any liberal member of another religious communion, will suppose that there is anything of a ' sectarian' spirit, any sign of animosity, anything, in short, which should call for the animadversions of the Protestant press, in the expression of Mr. Longmore's wil ingness to do for his own Church, whab ...

RATS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

RATS. (From Dickens1 Household JVo^ds.') There is nothing like being in earnest When one begins a good work. So, evidently thiuks the author of a blue covered pam phlet just issued, with a title page headed by three words and nine notes of exclamations —Rat 1 ! ! Rat ! ! ! Rat ! I I The object of the writer is no less than to alarm the whole nation by showing what we lose every year by the anima's against whom he has made sucii a dead set. JNot content with dilating on this, fact in the body of his work, he puts what lie calls a ' startling fact,' upon the wrapper. 'One pair of rats,' he says, ' with their progeny will produce in three years no less a number than six hundred Mid forty-six thousand eight hundred and eight rats ! which will consume, day by day, as much food as sixty-four thousand six hun dred and eighty men ; leaving eight rats to starve.' This, it must be admitted, is start ling enough, but any one who has a cellar, or a corn-bin, will be inclined to believe any tale...

LETTERS OF INTRODUCTION TO SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

LETTERS OF INTRODUCTION TO SYnMRY. (From Dickens' Household Words.) Every man who emigrates has a large packet of letters of introduction. To ex pend a few minutes and a sheet of paper in writing a few words signifying nothing, is ft cheap mode of paying off obligations or of-- fering politeness.

There were letters to persons residing in South Australia, Van Dieman's Land, and New Zealand, as if these had been suburbs or districts within an easy distance of Sydney, instead of as far off as Marseilles from Lon don.

PRINCE ALBERT'S ESTIMATE OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 May 1851

PRINCE ALBERT'S ESTIMATE OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. (Extract from Prince Albert's Speech at York.) There is but one alloy to my feelings of satisfaction and pleasure in seeing you here assembled again ; and that is the painful re membrance that one is missing from amongst us who felt so warm an interest in our scheme, and took so active a part in promoting its success ; the last act of whose public life was attending at the Royal Commission ; the admiration for whose talents and character, and the gratitude for whose devotion to the Queen and private friendship towards myself, I feel a consolation in having this public op portunity to express. Only at our last meet ing we were still admiring his eloquence, and the earnestness with which he appealed to you to uphold by your exertions and per sonal sacrifices what was to him the highest object — the honour of his country. He met you the following day, together with other Commissioners, to confer with you upon the details of our undertaking; ...

Countrp News. BATHURST.MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 June 1851

eountry T$e to-0# BATHURST. MINING INTELLIGENCE. (From the Bathurst Free P*ess.) There is a tendency in all things sublunary pos sessing life, activity or volition to flow on, in an even channel, and it could no more be expected/that the golden excitement, if allowed to coin a phrase, should either become perpetual or continue for any protracted period, than that the vital fluid should course through the diseased frame, at boiling heat, beyond a very limited span, or that the eruptions of the burning mountain should pour forth their streams ot living hre unceasingly, m eacn or any of these cases, exhaustion does and must and will ensue. Two or three years' existence under the intensity of such a wild and maddening excitement as that with which our community has latterly been possessed, would prematurely force the prime of manhood into decayed old age. What with the passions of hope and fear, of anticipation and dis appointment, of joy and despair and the twenty other sentiments of t...

HOME PUNISHMENT, NOT TRANSPORTATION: [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 June 1851

HOME PUNISHMENT, NOT TRANSPORTATION: (From the Spectator, Feh \. ) Transportation will come before Parliament at least with this kind of progress in the discussion, that it is absolutely condemned. It stood under a tolerable load of denunciation before, but now Mr. Adderley may be said, to 'have knocked away the last of Sir George Grey's props apologetic, and the position of transportation is as : precarious as that of Westminster Bridge — an opprobrium and re proach to those who prociastinate in the duty of removing it. Lord. Grey indeed, as we learn by the last blue book just out, continues to write letters to Sir William Denison; on the sending of 'convicts to Van Diemen's' Land, just as if the sys tem were eternal; indeed he talks of renewing assignment ! But Lord Grey is not within the pale of accountability, and we suppose he must be al lowed to write as he. likes while he stops in office. To other minds, transportation is now pronounced to be bad: in every possible view and e...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 June 1851

LA8EST ENGLISH NEWS. The Hibernia has brought news to Adelaide up to the 23rd February. Though only two days later than that received directly by the Windsor, there is one matter of great importance, and for which we were who ly unprepared. It is the resignation of Lord John Russell. The following is the account of the defeat which led to this crisis : — House of Commons, February 20. Mr. Locke King then moved for leave to bring in a bill to equalise the franchise in counties and boroughs, by giving a right of voting to occupiers of tenements of tho annual value of £10. This measure, he J observed, which was simple, moderate, and i practical, would not interfere with any j future plan of Lord John Russell, or with j any principle of the Reform Act. His motion stood on a more favourable footing this session than the last, when a bill was passed which extended the franchise in a similar manner in Ireland, and if the prin ciple was sound in that case, he claimed for this country what h...
