SEEKERS AND KEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

SEEKERS AND KEEPERS. (From Chambers' Edinburgh Journal.} The ordinary behaviour of these essenti ally distinct classes, is very different in reference to each other. An onlooker would say that the two parties are continually car rying ou a sort of war— a sy&tem of attack and defence. The aim of craving poverty being always to get as much as it can from wealth, it is the object of the latter to baflle the incessant efforts of the insidious foe. The one party acts on the offensive, the other entirely on the principle of self-defence. The contest is not without its amusing points. Let any one just mark, if such an opportu nity should be presented to him, the attitude, bearing, and expression, of a rich man (beg ging it to be understood, that we here, and throughout the whole of our observations mean those only who are a little close-fisted or so,) when suddenly addressed by a stran ger in a shabby suit, a suspicious character —that is, one who is likely to be wanting something ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

In 1844 there were 12 insolvenoie in a population of 18,000 ; in 1845 there were 18, in 22,000; in 1846 there were 21, in 25,000 ; in 1847 there were 20, in 31,000 ; in 1848 shere were 17, in 40,000; in 1849 there were 24, ih 56,000. eofar there appears to have been a steady decrease of insolvencies in proportion to population, but since 1849 the proportion has greatly increased In 185Q there were 51 insolvencies, in a population f 64,000 : and during the first 4h months of 1851 there have been 45 insolvencies. Out of the total number of insolvencies here recorded ,208, there were 89 publicans, 20 farmers, 18 builders, and carpenters, 15 storekeepers, 13 merchants, 11 butchers, &c, no other occupation mustering 1().

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO ARCHIBALD MICHIE, ESQ., AT PRESENT IN LONDON. PER FAVOR OF FREEMAN'S JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO ARCHIBALD MICH1E, ESQ., AT PRESENT IN LONDON. Per favor of Freeman's -Journal. Sir, — There appears to be no manner of doubt on the subject of your being the -author of certain communications that have from time to time ap peared in the Sydney Morning Herald under the head of Contributions From Homk. Insignificant in matter and unanmsing in style though these contributions be, there is yet a degree of petulant animus about them, very significant of the writer. In the first of such contributions which 1 was. led to notice, you joined in the present fanatical and unmeaning howl against the Cardinal Archbishop of Westmi nster, whom you accuse of suppressing a prayer for the Queen which up to that time was used in the London Catholic Churches. Now, JYIr. Micliie, I have no hesitation in informing you that , in making such an accusation against a man so ! eminent and virtuous as Cardinal 'Wiseman is ? known to be, yon have been guilty not only of a j flagrant ...

EXHIBITION OF THE SCHOOL OF DESIGN, ROYAL DUBLIN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

EXHIBITION OF THE SCHOOL OF| DESIGN, ROYAL DUBLIN SO-j C1E5Y. * . I (M-om the Tablet.) The first exhibition of works by the pupils, of the recently-established School of Design, in connection with the Dublin Society, was opened to public view on New Year's Day. A remarkable improvement both in the num ber and quality ot the works, upon the for mer exhibitions of the Society's Drawing Schools, is shown ; a most encouraging cir cumstance, and one which reflects great credit upon the system adopted by Mr. M'Manus, the head master. The present exhibition is entirely different in character from any to which we were for merly accustomed in the society's rooms. Nearly all the old patterns, which were tole rable in their day, but which, from annual repetition, had become uninteresting, and were rather a disheartening sign of want of progress, have vanished, and have given place to subjects of higher artistic character, and better accommodated to modern tastes and requirements. It is manifes...

GOULBUKN. Prospect ixg. — Several of the most successful of the Ophir gold diggers have formed themselves into a company with the object of exploring the Turon Mountains, where they express themselves pretty coididentlv of finding rich diggings. It is cer tainly desirable to divert some portion of the nu merous arrivals to fresh localities. The Ophir dig i»hi£rs are already far too crowded to be comfortable. In some spots the miners stands so closely together that their picks have to be carefully used to prevent them from striking eaeh other. — Goul- bvrn Herald.

THE POWER OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

THE POWER OF THE PRESS. {From the Zodiac.) This much lauded power is not magical, though confessedly mighty. It depends upon laws as uniform and indispensable, and intelligible as any in physics. The phrase, like many others, is much used ; but rarely allied to very definite conceptions. A general examination of the real influence of printing, may prepare the way for an im pressive view ot privilege and obligation connected with it. The power of ihe preas .is the power of the mind over mind ; and this may be multiplied indefinitely. If one mind can powerfully affect another by rela ting a fact, by illustrating a principle, by awakening dormant associations : if Demos thenes could move all Athens with one con trolling spirit of courage ; if Peter Ihe her mit, could spread through Europe the musings and burnings of his solitary bosom, and create one all-absorbing impulse of fan aticism, then the press is powerful. True, the living speaker teaching the mind through both the eye and the...

'On my arrival heie, by the ship Henrietta from Liverpool, I found this place in a most wretched state.

EFFORTS OF GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

EFFORTS OF GENIUS. Hawkesworth, the author of the Adven turer, was the son of a watchmaker, and was first brought up to that profession. He afterwards became a clerk to a stationer, and rose to distinction as a literary character. Sir John Hawkwood, a distinguished mili tary commander of the fourteenth century, was originally an apprentice to a tailor ; but entering as a private soldier, he rose to eminence. Herder, a German philosopher ana writer, was born ot poor parents and nurtured in adversity. Sir William Hers chel, one of the greatest astronomers of modern times, was originally a player in the band of a Hanoverian regiment. General Hoche, who commanded an expedition against Ireland, in 1796, began life as a stable boy. The Joan of Arc, who b her heroism delivered France from the English, supported herself in early life by keeping sheep and taking care of horses at a country inn. Samuel Johnson was the son of a bookseller at Litchfield. and attempted to support himself by keep...

THE JOLLY BURGLARS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

THE JOLLY BURGLAKS. (From Dickens* Household Words.') In the back lanes of a village, some two and-twenty miles from London, there stands, or rather lurks, a hedge alehouse called the overthrown Cart. From an abrupt corner of ruined barns and pig-sties on one side, and a stagnant pool on the other, in the high roid through the village, a lane opens its ragged, bushy mouth, and runs straggling away for a couple of miles, when it widens out into a barren common. These two lonely miles are enclosed on both sides by squalid hedges, broken fences, the end of a negiecui garden wall, a dry ditch, and a turnip fieid. At the right hand side of the garden wall stood an old summer house built of brick, like a little tower, the upper story being intended as a place to. sit in, and enjoy the prospects of seven green fields, and a cow shed, vvithn'o!hi;jg particular in the distance. This ruiaei ^ununol.ouse Nvas r.ovv over grown with ivy, and had become the de lightful abode of owls and bats. By ...

ADVICE TO THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD BY ROMAN CATHOLIC LAYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 June 1851

ADVICE TO THE SYDNEY MOB NING HERALD BY ROMAN CA THOLIC LAYMEN. The Sydney Morning Herald gave us, a few days ago, what it pleased the editors to style ' Advice to Protestants by a Roman Catho lic Priest.' Now it appears to us clear that the good gentlemen btand greatly in need of , a little advice themselves, and being chari tably disposed, we trust they will permit us to offer them a few considerations which we venture lo assert will do them more service than the rhetoric of their friend, if they think him such, Father Gavazzi. ;' And first we advise the worthy editors to observe, that their perpetual eager clutching at any absurd story, which they think may prove discreditable or annoying to Catholics, is inconsistent with their pro fessed principles. The white of an egg, vs. proper, with the legend '» Sworn to no , master, of no sect am I' — 'tis a most noble escutcheon, and 'twere a thousand pities it shou.d not be maintained in all the bright ness of its magnanimity.

(From the Turon Correspondent of the Bathurst Free Press.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 June 1851

(From the Turon Correspondent of the Bathurs Free Press. ) Since my last communication I have done very ] little in the way of gold finding. My time has been principally occupied in examining the War- ? rangunnia but better known as the Crudine Creek of which I have prospected over a considerable scope, and rrom appearances I expect to' find gold in almost every creek that runs into the Turon river- So far as my explorations have proceeded the precious metal appears to be less plentiful in the Crudine than in most of the other creeks. The great drawback, as I anticip ted, proves to be the scarcity ot water, particularly in the tributary creeks, and if this be an obstacle now in the winter ' season, how will extensive mining operation be [ conducted in the summer, with perhaps not more than one mile of. water frontage in ten miles of most of our rivers and creeks ? A shepherd of Mr. Richards found about an : ounce of gold a day or two ago on the top of a j hill just behind the head s...

TURON DIGGINGS. (From the Bathurst Free Press.) The following communication from the Govern ment Geologist, Mr. Stutchbury, to Mr. Commis sioner Hardy, was posted opposite Mr. Meyer's store, as formerly stated, by our Correspondent. As the information therein contained may be of service to intending gold-diggers, we gladly give it insertion : — Geological and Mineralogical Survey, June 9, 1851. Sir, — I have the honor to advise you of points, which, I believe, would repay parties working for gold. They are as follows : 1. The great bar in the Macquarie River, at Walgumbulla, about three miles below the junction of the Turon. 2. The bar at the junclion of the Turon, on the Macquarie River. 3 The several bars on the Turon for 8 miles up, especially the first three from the junction. 4 On 'the Macquarie, at (Neeli) Nelly's corner, and the bars above and below — 3 or 4 miles either way. At each of the above-named places I found gold by prospecting with a small pan , and without going ; ...

-£omtti*i- Nsau*, .BATHURST.'' ???'': THE DIGGINGS. {From the Ophir Correspondent of the Bathurst Free Press.) Ophir, Monday Eveninsr. Saturday's proceedings at the diggings assumed a similar aspect to those of the former few days ; but a decided' improvement was apparent in the earnings of many ot the miners. One person picked up a lump of nineteen ounces, and many who had been toiling almost without hope, met good rewards for their perseverance. Sunday was marked as usual for its quiet ; the day of rest appointed for man was generally ob served, and but few instances occurred of parties working. In the afternoon, after divine service, a meeting was held for petitioning the Governor to i euuue me license me. me resolutions which had been prepared for the occasion were drawn up with out the least regard to Lindley Murray. In fact, they could scarcely be termed English ; 'and, more over, the stvle of wording was anything but cal culated, to win over the obdurate heart of a money lovi...

The Ae'Ciibishop op Sydney. — Since our last notice we have had scarcely any details of the pro gress of His Grace the Archbishop, but we have heard indirectly of the results of his presence, and the affectionate admiration with which his visits have been received throughout the district where his laborious duties have lately detained him. A note which we saw had been written just after the Archbishop had set out, on a very cold and wet evening, to visit the dying bed of one of the faith ful, at a rlistanfifi of manv miles, with the nnnsnla tions and strength of the last rites of Holy Church. All the little watchful attentions that a reverent love can suggest are eagerly offered, we are told, to ? His Grace everywhere ; still, in that remote district, and at this inclement season, there is much to en dure, and the good health and cheerful alacrity, with which the Archbishop bears his constant fatigue, are matter of wonder and thankfulness to the kind hearts of his people.

THE PACKET STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 June 1851

THE PACKET' STATION. - (From the Tablet.) . The grand and masterly scheme of connecting the busy manufactures of Belfast with the quiet and ample port of Galway, and this by half a mile of rail, linking together the existing Drogheila and Midland Railways, as set forth by Mr. Hemans, the railway engineer, will render, we expect, the nine teenth century to Ireland what the sixteenth cen tury was to happier and more fortunate nations. Ireland, so long belated in European history, will finally utilise her situation. Galway, perhaps, will rival .Liverpool, as it did in ancient tunes— and i Connaught in prosperity, in the course of years, i equal Lancashire. Meantime, we venture to as sure their mightinesses, the Packet Commissioners, that simply to substitute Holyhead for Liverpool is producing, with the labour of the mountain, a mean and sneaking mouse — 'tis the step of a chicken when we expected the stride of a giant. The spray and foam of the large Atlantic must splash the Western t...
