A SCHEME OF REVOLUTION FOR IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
A SCHEME' OF REVOLUTION FOR IRE LAND. (From, the Beacon.) Wisely. is it observed by Mdontesquieu that an un armed people can always be oppressed with im punity; and the same great author tells us,.that so oppress'ed iere the provinces of the old Roman em pire, and so broken down were the spirits of the natives by fiscal and other exactions tlhey were wont to pray for some national calamity on their tyrants. Heaven heard their prayers, and its own time placed in their hands the means and the assu rance of just and signal retribution. Ireland is perhaps in a worse situation than the provinces of ancient Rome. A peerage, not Irish, but Scotch and English, owning the greater por tion of the soil, and like the Roman senators, anxious to draw as much from that soil and to do as little for it or for those who live on it as it is possible -the-learned professions looking -for state pay and patronage, iot to their having deserved well of the -Irish people, but to past or prospective subservi...

In the farm of Urrall, parish of Kirkoen, Waig tonshire, the property of Colonel W. H..Stopfod Blair, of Penninghame, is a curious rocking-stone. It is a granite boulder, measuring 4 feet 9 inches at perpendicular height, and 16 feet 2 inches in cir cumference. It sits upon a flat rock. and touches no otherstone but the one upon 51which it rests. its base is in the form of a wedge; and so nicely is it balanced by nature, that it is easily moved to and fro by a pressure of the finger-even a slightbfeeze of wind keeps it in constant motion. TThis stone was discovered by Mr. Gilbert MlIlwrick, th4e tenant, an' has been shown to many visitors, and also to the Royal Sappers and Miners, who have inserted it in their map as a great curiosity.-Ayr Advertiser.

THE ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 March 1847
THE ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MEETING. (From the ?tlelbourne Argue.) The public meeting convened by his Worship the Mayor on the requisition of a large number of the inhabitants, for the purpose of publicly determinIng whether the introduction of British criminals to this province would be agreeable to this community, was held in the Queen's Theatre, yesterday, pursuant'to appointment, and proved, as we had anticipated, a veritable " monster meeting," the numbers farex ceeding the attendance at any previous meeting held in the province. It was not alone in numbers, however, that the meeting of yesterday stands pre-eminent beyond its predecessors whatever their subject-there was'an unanimity of feeling, and an earnestness of purpose manifested in the proceedings which we should look for, in vain, In the records of past assemblages of the inhabitants, and which we would fain hope isnet only the certain indication of a fixed de.ermination to withstand the threatened pollution to the death, b...

3atlbuttt EUrcuit Court. --0 FRIDAY, FEB. 27. CIVIL SIDE. Before his Honor the Chief Justice. QUINN V. SWIFT. This was an action to recover certain head of cat tle, with their increase, alleged to be in possession of defendant. The Solicitor-General appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Holroyd for the defendant. It appeared that tile had some time ago gone to Bathurst to collect cattle for Messrs. Byrnes of Parramatta. At that time plaintiff was a pri soner of the crown, and had several head of cattle of hiis own, which for safe-keeping he had left in the possession of a person'named John White, who it was alleged had delivered them over to the de fendant. On the cattle being some time afterwards demanded from the defendant by the plaintiff, the former denied that he had ever had them. There was not sufficient evidence to show that the cattle had ever been in defendant's possession, and the jury returned a verdict'for the defendant. This closed the business of the present sittings of...

THE POLLUTION ISTS. 'Sucu is the, term which our Port Phillip contemporaries' have given to the few per sons who advocate the Revival of Transpor tation to ew South Wales, of which ter ritory the district of Port Phillip forms so important a part. I he sympathy which we feel, and at every convenient opportunity have expressed, with our neighbours, (extending our definition of neighbourhood to all the Australasian Pro vinces)' induces us to congratulate the meeting at Melbourne on the triumphant victory which was gained by public opinion over the selfish, mercenary few, though embodying in themselves the vast influence which the lordship of the soil confers on its pcssessors in a newly occupied land. Mo much has been said and written on the odious subject which Mr. Gladstone's letter had opened for public investigation, that the apprebepsion of weakeping a cause by superfluity of notice, often: restrains us from giving vent to our feelings, when they are aroused in anger, at the cont...
