DIFFERENCE OF OPINION, NO DISUNION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 March 1847

DIFFERENCE OF OPINION, NO DISUNION. [From the Nation.] - In things essential, Unity.; in non-essentials, Liberty; in all things, Charity."-SaintAugusltine. " Disunion,"' they say, " hlas ever been the curse of Ireland." It is as sad a truth as ever was put in a proverb. Irishmen, who disagree in most 'other points,-concur in receiving this popular saying as a profound axiom. Some slake their heads sBrrow fully, and say that it is a. visitation from God on their country.for some unrepented crime she hath committed; while others say it is the clharacteristic of the Celt to stand apart from all other men; and some, again, merely exclaim-='tis destiny ! destiny ! We do not impeach Providence-nor do we believe it is the result of the Celtic blood which circulates in a portion of the people's veins--nor do we receive the doctrine that it, is a fatality for which natural causes may not be discovered. at is ?yorth while to :nquire into:the sounidress of the.two last theories.

Watburt erirtuit Qfourt. -0- (From tile .Herald.) TUESDAY, FEB. 22. Before his Honor the Chief Justice. HORSE STEALING James Target;who had been arraigned on the pre vious day, was indicted for stealing a grey horse, the property of one Abel Harris, at Castlereagh River, in the district of Bligh, on the 1st November last. On the previous day the prisoner had been arraigned for stealing the same horse, the property having been laid as belonging to Michael Jones; this case failed, but the prisoner was remanded, and a fresh indictment preferred, to which he pleaded not guilty.

STRAY NOTES FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 March 1847

STRAY NOTES FROM AMERICA. Some letters and papers brought from America furnish a-few facts, which may interest and amunse our readers : THE.POUTURE SRTTLERS OF CALCFORNIA. -One of the " lions" of New York is the encamp ment of the Californians on one of the small islands of the bay. Boats, filled with curious visitors, ply in constant fleets between the city and the camp; and the future adventures of the picked men, and the intentions of Government with regard to them, are stuff for a great deal of busy speculation. The regiment consists of one thousan'l men, mostly me chanics, and officered by men of education, possessed of the knowledge of some profession. They are soon to embark, and to go round Cape Horn to Ca lifornia, to serve as government troops for three years, and then to receive grants of land, and settle; but as they cannot reach their destination before next spring, and as before that time a peace with Mexico is promised, King.

THE INFLUENCE OF MANLY SPORTS UPON THE BRITISH NATIONAL CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 6 March 1847

THE INFLUENCE OF MANLY SPORTS UPON .THE BRITISH NATIONAL CHARACTER. (From the Pictorial Tiaes,.) * 'lhe character of the inhabitants of every country, civilised as well as uncivilised, is more or less influ ?nced by their national pastimes. The huntsman on the distant shores of Africa becomes doubly at tached to his sterile plains and,pathlhss forests, when 'ongaged in strife with the ipowerful brute creation within his wilds. To face the lion or the leopard in his lair, is to the Indian an exciting pleasure, which he would not barter for all the riches that could be •heaped upon him, for it nerves his arm against his savage foe in the Iheatof deadly conflict. If we look to those regions of the earth where art and science and all the wonderful improvements of modern times have their home, we still find the same feeling pre dominating-the same unvariable attachment to the. sports incidental to the land of birth. Such being the fact, let us devote a few minutes to inquiring to what ex...
