REGULATIONS FOR LENT, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

REGULATIONS FOR LENT, 1817. The general law of the Church which ordains abstinence from .flesh meat during the'entire Lent, is so far dispensed with, that the faithful are allowed to use meat on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. This permission is to be used at dinner only-except on Sundays. During the first four clays of Lent, and the last week, abstinence from meat is to be observed (except on Palm Sunday), after the manner of our fore fathers. On fasting days, a collation may be taken in the morning and evening. A small quantity of milk, and also of butter may be used. With respect to the latter, the dispensation is granted in behalf of those who feel unable to take bread in sufficient quantity without its aid. Eggs are allowed on all days, ex cept Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Cheeseand butter are allowed on all days at dinner. The period during which the Paschal duty of Annual Confession and Communion is to be fulfilled, com mences on the first Sunday of Lent, and con...

FLORAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

FLORAL AND HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. The first exhibition of this society for the year 1847, was held in the Market shed A, on Wednesday last. The exhibition was one of the best we have witnessed in this Colony, although we are sorry to say the number of visitors was not so large as it has been on some former occasions. The building was very tastefully fitted up under the superintendence of Mr. Waterman. overseer of the Botanical Gardens, and the band of the 99th regiment being in attendance nearly the whole of the day, added much to the gaiety and pleasure of the scene. The flowers generally-were of a superior descrip tion, and showed that much attention had been bestowed upon them by the votaries of Flora. Many of the vegetable productions were decidedly the best we have seen in the Colony, and the fruit was also very fine, notwithstanding the devastations made amongst it invarious parts of the country by the late storms. In the course of the day the exhibition was visited by his Exc...

HOW SHOULD WE DO WITHOUT A NEWSPAPER? [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

HOW SHOUWD WE DO WITHOUT A NEWS PAPER P (From Jerrold's Magazine.) With all its present imperfections and faults, the press is acceptable to society at large. No man except an oppressor likes to have anything to do with a lawyer, and he uses him only as a tool which is unpleasant to handle. No man is willingly with out a newspaper. Paley thought the rough disorder of English freedom, the want of courtesy which is the national characteristic, and all the evils of warm political discussion, cheaply purchased by the amuse ment and instruction of a newspaper. Cowper de scribes it as-; " This folio of four pages, happy work, Which not e'en critics criticise ; that holds Inquisitive attention while I read Fast bound in chains of silence, which the fair, Though eloquent themselves, yet fear to break; WhIat is it but a map of busy life, Its fluctuations apd its vast concerns !" But the-folio of four pages has now swelled to a folio of eight pages, sixteen -pages, and even twenty pages.. Loc...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

van DiLtnrttn's ILan., laRss RELIEF lo'eo.-We are happy to find that our appeal in behalf of the suflering Irish has not been in vain. The sympathy of our fellow colonists has been enlisted in their- behalf, and we have received more than one intimation that our recom mendation will be carried into effect, if a public meeting is called for that purpose, or any other machinery put in motion by means of which sub scriptioris may be collected. One gentleman has declared his intention of presenting fifty pounds for that purpose. It has been suggested that the pro ceeds of the subscription should be sent home in wheat, which will at the same time diminish our surplus stock of grain, enable us to remit in what we can best spare, and be most useful to those who are to'receive it. We think this suggestion a good one, and hope in our next to be enabled to announce that a committee has been formed for the purpose. The Scottish Highlands are said to be in an equal state of destitution, and man...

POOR-LAW COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

POOR-LAW COMMISSIONERS' .REPORT. (lives an account of the money received as poor rate and expended for the relief of the poor in England and Wales for the parochial year ending Lady-day, 1845. The receipts. were 7,009,5111.; the expenditure, 6,857,4021. Both armounts corres ponded nearly with those of the preceding year. As respects, however, the diterent counties there were extensive variations : -In the six following counties there was a decrease as compared with 1811: Not tingham, 12 per cent; York, West Riding 11; Lancaster nine; Chester five; Durham five ; Staf ford five. In the eight following counties there was an increase. Huntingdon 12 per cent. ; Warwick nine ; Anglesea seven; Cambridge seven ; Brecon six; Snflulk six; Oxford six ; Norfolk six.

l7arte:(ts. -0 EXPEaIMaENTr\G wITH THE CuEaaNCx.-Young sters about railroads have got into the habit of placing silver on the track, to have it flattened by the train as it passes. One of these urchins having made something by the experiment, concluded to try it again; the next time the change adhered to the wheel of the locomotive, and the little operator sunk more than his former earnings. Never mind, my little man; older heads than yours have suffered by expandiig their capital.

INTOLERANCE OF THE ENGLISH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

INTOLERANCE OF THE ENGLISH CHURCH. (From the Colonial Times.) The power exercised by the priesthood of the e Established Church of England is greater, by virtue of their Ecclesiastical Courts, their Spirissal i< Courts, their Consistorial Courts, and their Univer- d sity Courts, than ever was exercised in the very h worst times of A'Becket. Look at the following b shameful instance: A tailor at Oxford, named Leech, had furnished a a young parson of Christchurch with clothes, gowns, hoods, caps, and various other articles in the way of his vocation, to a large amount. Leech was a young tradesman, striving to support honestly and honor ably an increasing family. The parson got a good living" in Dorsetshirc, and was about to quit Ox- I ford to undertake its duties, without troubling him- ' self about the tailor's bill; indeed, having threatened to chastise him if he dared have the impertinence to demand it, when Leech was advised to have recourse to his attorney.

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1847. SYDNEY—ITS GRIEVANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 February 1847

- THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1847. SYDNEY-JTS GRIEVANCES. UTILITARIANISM is by many considered as a new doctrine, but whoever reflects for a 'moment on the mode -of men's dealings, where their own interests are concerned, 'will find that it existed in.practice long be= foreits theory -assumed a philosophic form under the creative genius of that great -reformer, Bentham. Such an observer of things as they always have been will find that ability, integrity, and industry, are the recommendations to employment, and the grounds of preference in all the transac tions of private life. But alas ! if- expe rience can afford a just indication of the fact, such claims are not regarded as re quisites in a public functionary. Whether official situations are conferred by the hand of higher authorities, or they are the result of popular elections, they would seem to be bestowed as a rewardof private obligation, or as & token of -personal friendship, rather than as a means...
