THE BowIE KNIFz.-.Razin Bowie, tile man who invented that deadly weapon the Bowie knife, which is the tenant of every Texian's bosom, was a reckless drunkard, who had squandered his property, and was subsequently obliged to fly from his country (the United States) for slaying a man in a duel. The fact is well known in Texas, and is thus related by'a friend of Bowie's, who was present when Razin Bowie fought a duel with knives across a table, at the Alame, a few days before Santa Anna took it t-His first duel was fought at Natchez, on the Mississippi, in the fall of 1834. A dispute arose at a card table. in the middle of the day, between Bowie and a man named Black. The lie was given by Bowie to his opponent, and at the same moment, drawing his knife, (which was a case one, with a blade about four inches long, such as the Americans always carry in their pockets) he challenged the man to fight. whioh was accepted without any honitation, and Black having taken his seat opposite Bowie, ...
THE ACACIA TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
T'lE AOAOIA TAEI. -o The planting of forest rels, or, indeed, the pro duction of any kind of new timbtr in a country so recently discovered as ou:s, and witro the removal of timber trees forms a large portion of the labour of our settlers, may generally be considered (except for ornamental purposes) an ill timed pursuit. The British oak has been justly celebrated as having stood the battle and the breeze with better effect.than any other forest tree indigenous to Europe; but the very extraordinary merits attributed to the Acacia tree, distinguished by botanists as the Robiria Pseudo Acaols, may well arrest the attention of land proprietors and others even here, especially as it is, said to be of such rapid growth that "even an elderly gentleman planting it may hope to see wood before he dies." Indeed, in every quality for which " the Monarch of the Woods" is famed, the Acacia is greatly its superior. The Robinia Acacia was first introduced into France from its native country, Americ...

THE MORNING CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12, 1844. ,l eo just and fear not: Let all the ends thou ain'st at be thy country's, Thy Ood's, and truth's." tkuslseare. THE TAHITI MEETING. WE are again obliged, unwillingly, to re turn to this contemptible and ludicrous affair--job rather, in consequence of some very unbecoming and unseemly language used by the lcrald as regards ourselves. The herald says, "We did not expect the proceedings of the meeting held on Friday would prove at all palatable to the RO MANISTS of Sydney." Pray, Mr. He rald, what has the meeting to do with the Ronianists of Sydney? or the Romanists of Sydney with the meeting? or what con cern have the Roomanisis of Sydney with the French colonization of Tahiti ? What is it to ,them, as Romanists? With all the herald's,;acumen, and politico-theological sagacity, lie has got the "iwrong sow by the ear" this time, (as King Henry VIII. said) for the Roimanists of Sydney, as Ro mnanists, have a very slight opinion indeed of ...
To the Editor of the "Morning Chronicle." [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
To the Edi:or of the " Morning Chranicle." Srn,-I feel it duo to myself, as Reporter to the Chronicle, to notice a very blustering article wthch appeared in Monday's Herald, impugning the ve racity of a statement I made to you respecting the "' number" of persons present at a meeting held at the City Theatre, on Friday last, " for tlliji'urpose of petitioning the Queen to usa her influence in behalf of the unfortunate Queen I and people of Tahiti." Now, Sir, I beg to be permitted to say, that I am incapable of descending to such a coo temptible violation of truth, as to "curtail" u meeting of its " fair proportion" of numbers, or to magnify those numbers, lu order to suit the object of any party or faction. And having had con siderable experience of public meetings both in England and Ireland, of which it was my duty to furnish as correct a numerical estimate, and as faithful a report, as ny judgment enabled me to do, I here deliberately repeat my statement as to the number of perso...
THE SYDNEY POLICE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
TIlE SYDNEY POLICE. PUBLIC MEETING. The people of Sydney are very naturally and very justly alarmed and displeased at the sort of police protection afforded them by the government: they are alarmed at the thought, that any one of them may become a victim to a set of miscreants, who so lately deprived of life two estimable and virtuous citizens, in their own dwellings, in the midst of a populous city: and they are as justly displeased that so lax and careless a discipline, control, and surveil- lance, should be allowed over a set of men such as those in Hyde Park Barracks, who are well known to be the most expert in crime of any in the three kingdoms ; as also at the inefficiency of the constabulary force appointed to protect them. We have already compared the divided sort of authority under which the police force is organized, appointed and com- manded, to the two Kings at Brentford, or the two Consuls in the presence of Han- nibal, with whom, for art, cunning, and strategy, the Hyd...
LOYAL NATIONAL REPEAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
LOYAL NATIONAL REPEAL ASSOCIATION. -0 [From the Tablet, January 0.] T'o weekly meeting in the Conciliation Hall took place on Tuesday; Dr Step lhen Murphy in the chair. Mr. Ray read the minutes, and Mr. John O'Connell having expressed his delight at seeing the civic chair once again filled by a Repeal Lord Mayor, adverted to the speech of the late Lord Mayer, delivered on the previous day. He (Mr. O'Connell) complained of his inagu. ration, that the present corporation had prevented am!cable communication with [tbe government. It was the government that had repeatedly slighted the corporation. He denied that agitation was at all the cause of the country's distress. iHe denied that toe Repeal agitation was one of religion (hear). On the contrary, as it would give equal rights to all religions, it would prevent religious disputes. He expressed his astonishment, and that of all the traversers, at Mr. Roe's suggestion, that the corporation should approach the throne to forbid the Itrial...

ILL-REQUITED LABOUR.—STARVING PRICES TO NEEDLEWOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
ILL-IREQUITED LABOUR.-STAIIVING PRICES TO NEEDLEWOMIBN. -o At Lambeth-street Police Court, on Wednesdpy, a wretched.looking woman, named Biddell, withl a squalid, half-starved infant at her breast, was placed at the bar on a charge of unlawfully pawning several articles of wearing apparel which she had been intrusted to make up for Mr. Moses, a slopseller, on Tower.hill. The prisoner, it appeared, had been given into custody by a woman who had been security for her to the amount of £2 to Mr. Moses, and who had heard she had pawned some of the articles which she had been intrusted to make. A number of articles, principally trousers, were pro duced by various pawnbrokers, which had been pawned by the prisoner. They were identified by the foreman of Mr. Moses as his master's property. The witness also said they had been made from materials supplied to the prisoner from Mr. Moses's warehouse. The prisoner, who while the evidence was being given against her cried bitterly, said she was c...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
MAtitIAtG?l. -a Martiage v.rat a world of meaning there is in the word, Though only consisting of two syllables in pronunciation, and three in orthography, it is in a practical sense one of the most important words in the English language. The happiness or misery of millions is wrapt up in it. Matrimony is the real radical reformer after all. It Is the most powerful moral agent in the universe. It produces marvellous results in its subjects, no matter to which sex they belong. To enter into the wedded state, is like en- o teriag into a now world: it is not only like com. mencing a new era in one's existence, but actually constitutes the beginning of a new existence. It is the initiation into a state of being of which the parties had no previous conception. The single man undergoes a mighty change the moment he becomes a husband; and the young miss, perhaps, a still I more extensive transformation of character, when t sile becomes ' the wedded wife' of some enamoured swain. Their vie...

On Sunday, the 14th of April, his Gtace the Archbishop opened the retreat in the Church of St. Patrick, when high Mass was celebrated. After the Gospel, the Archbishop delivered an appropriate and eloquent discourse on the institution and prac tical effects of the Jewish and Christian Jubilees. The august mysteries were offered each day at 7, 8, 9, and 10 o'clock. On Thursday high Mass was celebrated ; at the Gospel the celebrant gave a practical instruction on the holy communion; three hundred approached the Banquet of the Lord ; on Friday, eighty men of the 99.h regiment crowded around the holy Table, and became as well soldiers of Jesus Christ as of the ...
