(REVIEW.) RAVENEST; OR, THE REDSKINS. By the Author of "The pilot," "The pathfinder," &c., 3 vols. London : Richard Bentley. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
(R VIEII:J (Fromh the Wleekly Chronicle.) RAVENEST; OR, THE REDSKINS. By the Author of "The Pilot," " The Path finder' etc., 3 vole. London: Richard Bentley. If there be any Lynch-law in America, we should 'say that Mr. Cooper stands a pretty fair chance of 'the tar bucket, for the bold and uncompromising manner in which he attacks the vices and follies of 'his countrymen. The Hamiltons, Trollopes, and 'Dickenses, have all hadl their bile disturbed by the rudeness of American manners, and the aspect of the country generally; but Mr. Cooper goes much deeper than those summer travellers, and instead of lashing coarseness and brutality,sbows us the much more serious and disastrous picture of American -principles. The work is written to expose the working .of the movement a little while ago so rampant In America,. ,called anti-rentism; or, in other words, the attempt ,of those parties who h61d perpetual leaves, to convert ,them into freeholds,against the will of thelaodloqrds. In the St...

SYDNEY CHRONICLE. .WEDNESDA Y, MIIARCH 10, 1847. ECCLESIASTICAL TYRANNY. We have not .the less satisfaction in pub lishing the letter of " OxoN" on account of his acknowledgment, that he was .not in fluenced in writing it by any motive com plimentary or kindly to ourselves. That this talented correspondent was instigated -by far..nobler motives, than any personal consideration could excite, the spirit and the letter of his valuable communication most fully prove. It would be superfluoud-it would be injudicious to add a single word 'to the clear exposition le' has made of the objec 'tions that are raised by 'the einlightened public in England, against the usurpations of any Courts ?hbatever, whieh would raise themselves against the supreme tribunals of the land, to which all other courts in com mon with the meanest individual, must submit.

THE LATE CASES OF ADMINISTRATION OF THE CRIMINAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
THE LATE CAE.s OF ADMINIS TRATION OF THE CRIMINAL 'LAW. As there is nothing which more materially concerns the welfare of the mass of the people than the administration of -the cri minal law, so there is nothing which awakens more anxious inquiry than.the proceedings in the Criminal Court. This of course is more strikingly the case, .when the crime is of an appalling character, and perhaps even more so when the alleged criminal is a man of notoriety above the common rank. In the course of the late Circuit Courts, and during the present sittings of the Cri minal Court at Darlinghurst, much interest has been excited by the issue of several cases. We select as the most -striking instances, of the public confabulation and reproach, in the first place; the impunity with which Hogan escaped, though clearly the accessory to the murder 'of Ellen Hyndes, perpetrated by Kane, if the con fession of the last named criminal 'has any weight in the adjudication of their respective guilt. The delib...

SEarl Manners said, in the House of Lords,.he hated anything like ambiguity, either verbally or epistolary ; and therefore he would unhesitatingly declare his decided aversion to all railways (great laughter). Indeed if he had his wish hewould con sign them all en masse to a locality, which respect for their lordships prevented his more directly al luding to. (Cries of name I and roars of laughter). He could not go so far as to support the bill, though if they were to be griddled with railways (laughter) the present bill was as little objectionable as any other of the mass with which they were at present inundated. A boy who applied for a situation, advertised in our paper, writes, "I am a strong active lad, eighteen years of my age, and free from all faults whatsoever." One proof we had of the lad's mistake was, that he forgot to pay the postage of his letter. -Preaton Guardian. . .

TORRES' STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
TORRES' STRAITS. (From the Government Gazette.) The Government Gazette of yesterday contains a very interesting narrative by Lieutenant C. B. Yule, of H.M.S. Bramble, of' his late expedition in Torres' Straits. The most interesting portion of which we give below: On the 15th April, the vessels were anchored off the coast of New Guinea, and on the following morn ing, says Lieutenant Yule, " we weighed with a light land breeze, and stood two miles on a south course, in order that I might take up a more favor able position to commence the survey ; we anchored at 7, a.m., abreast of the southern extremity of the Promontory I hlave before mentioned, as.a favorable position for commencing my triangulations. I di rected my signal that the Castlereagh should keep under sail; soont after we anchored, Mr. Aird came on board, when I made known to him my intended plans for tihe survey ; I also directed him to keep near the shore during the day, with the view of.pro tecting or assisting our boat...
"Monday, 1st March. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
" Monday, 1st March. " Dear Sir,- I very much regret that a sudden attack of inflanmaation'of the eyes, to which I am subject, will pirevent me from attending the anti transportation meeting to day. - I wish, however, to take this opportunity of stating my opinion, that we ought not to accede to Mr. Gladstone's proposal for the reflewal (or rather as concerns Port Phillip) the beginning of a system of transporting British cri minals to this colony. " For this opinion I think it a sufficient reason to allege that by doing so we should paralyze the exer tions which maosr otherwise be made to procure a supply of immnigrants, regulated by the demand; nad also that w'e should incur the risk of converting Port Phillip into a penal colony once and for ever.

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
Qlape of 0ao0 ~lops, -0 (From the South Australian Register.) By the Joha Panter, from the Cape, we have Cape papers to the 11th December, and those of Graham's Town to the 5th. The London news is not later than our own, The.chief subject of interest in the Cape Colony is the petition of the settlers on the Eastern frontier, for compensation -for -losses suffered in the Kaffir war. It is addressed to the Home Government, and will exhibit in high quarters a subject of peculiar hardship and distress. The colonists have for many years beent subject to incursions of the rude bar barian;, and the recurrence of repeated warfare, leaves no doubt on the unprejudiced mind that they have much claim for protection for the future, and compensation for the past. The interests of this important section of the colonyrequire prompt and decisive measures; the whole case should receive candid and equitable consideration. .

Variettes. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
-o GALLANT Acro.N.-In the middle of the great St. Jawrence there is. nearly opposite to Montreal an island called St. Helens, between which and the shore the stream, about three quarters of a mile broad, runs with very great rapidity, and yet, not withstanding this current, the intense cold of winter invariably freezes its surface. The winter I am speaking of was unusually severe, and the ice on tihe St. Lawrence particularly thick ; however, while the river beneath was rushing towards the sea, the ice was waiting in abeyance in the middle of the stream until the narrow fastness between Montreal and St. Helens should burst and allow the whole mass to break into pieces, and then in stupendous confusion to hurry downwards towards Quebec. On St. Helens there was quartered a small detach ment of troops, and, while the breaking up of the ice was momentarily expected, many of the soldiers, muffled in their great coats, with thick storm gloves on their hands, and with a piece of fur attach...
