THE SAILOR PRELATE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851

THE SAILOR PRELATE. It was in the year 1580, that Sir Francis Drake returned in triumph to his native land, after a successful expedition against the Spaniards in the South Seas. Ile anchored nt Deptford, and Queen Elizibeth honoured the brave Admiral by dining on board his ship. After the banquet, her Majesty con« ferred the honour of knighthood on her en- tertainer, and enquired of him whether he wished to name any captain in his fleet, as peculiarly distinguished for valoir*. " So please your Majesty," said Drake, "many there are in every ship who,have borne themselves right bravely, as ,the, sub- jects of their gracious mistress should ; but one there is who merits praise above all» for by his steady daring alone three goodly - gal- leons were taken. He stood himsi If "at the guns until victory was declared, although » unger of his right hand was shot off, and he had received various grievous wounds.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. OPENING OP THE COUNCIL. " Yesterday the Legislative Council assembled for the despatch of. business. The attendance of -visitors, both ladies and gentlemen, was rather numerous. Among others, we noticed the Tasma- nian and Victorian Delegates ; Captain (¿ucsada of the Spanish man-of-war, together with a large number of -his officers.. The Executive Officers of the Government WOFC in full uniform", as were also -the' Spánish''gentlenien. Tho back benches of the Chambers were set apart for the ladies, whose fashionable attire, together with the military and naval uniforms in other, parts of the house, had a very animated effect. Altogether the appearance was highly respectable, and the interesting nature of the crisis winch had called the Council toge- ther, was amply attested, not only by the large . fiumber of spectators in tho body and gallery of the house, but also by the orderly and serious de- meanour of the crowd assembled in the street and aroa in front of...

THE VICEREGAL SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851

THE VICEREGAL SPEECn. THE Roman historian has left it on record that once upon a time an Ox spoke in the Forum'. The particular crisis in public affairs which called forth this display of bovine eloquence, and the oracular dicta thus extraordinarily emitted, are not re- corded. Nor was it necessary. The wonder is sufficiently great as it stands. A speaking Ox is a miracle, whatever the character of his utterances may be. The official speeches of Regal and Viceregal personages arc usually judged by the standard applied to the oratorio Ox. The condescension is so groat when embodied Royalty speaks in' public, that all such trivial considerations as appropri- ateness, clearness, fulness, or even com- mon-sense, generally sink out of view. Hence the usual characteristics of Royal . speeches arobrevityand meaninglessnoss that being the model speech which contains the greatest amount of no-meaning in the fewest nossible words. Tho speech of His Excellency yester- day, at the opening of th...

Definition of the term Regeneration, variously nsod by writers : " A chancro of relationship," " bestowal of divine grace," <fcc. Tho Bishops define it as " a death unto sin, a now birth unto righteousness :" or, in the language of our Ilomily, " it is he (the Holy Ghost) which inwardly worketh tho ' regeneration' or ' new birth of mankind.' " It is in this sense I uso the term. St. Augustino says, " if Sacraments had not a certain similitudo of those things whereof they bo Sacraments, they should bo no Sacraments .it all ; and of this similitude they do, for tho most part, receive the names of the self-same thing they signifv." Tho sign was confounded thon, as now, for tho thing signified. Homily or prayer received rightly-not tho form of external ordi- nance-not the opus operatum, but with faith, «fee.

MY LORDS-In common with other members of the Church of England, I cannot but express my regret in finding that your Lordships, assembled in con- ference, should have thought fit to have agitated in these colonies, the question of Baptismal Regeneration, at the present very unseasonable time, just as the decision of the Privy Council has been declared on a question which has nearly rent the Church in twain at home and that when it must bo well known to your Lordships that several clergymen and many lay members of the Church hero hold views very opposite to those ex- pressed by the majority of your number ; also perceiving that one of your own number, the Bishop of Melbourne, has joined issue with you, it is rather strange that without any apparent necessity, you should have forced this question upon public attention, teaching virtually the want of doctrinal unity in our Church, i that wo have no certain land-marks, and thereby lighting xip a flame of polemic discussion in no way calc...

They have, however, with consist- ent injustice refused to insert it.

MR.MORT'S SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851

MU. MORT'S SCHEME. Besides, we have three objections to Mr. Hurt's scheme, which we think are fatal. '1st. It provides for no co-operation at home-ho pound for pound of British money to meet ours. We must pny for every la- bourer to be imported the whole cost of his passage out. Tina will be a serious matter, «ml we shall only be able to go a very little way in the importation of labour, with all the funds to be raised through the proposed tax. 2nd. There is a degree of heartlessness on tlie nice of it-paying for so much labour on the one band and considering exclusively the material intcrestsof theemployerofthatlabour <>n the oilier. It re,ninds us of the French merchant, who was earrj'ing on an extensive but illegal business in the slave trade, and in whose books the negroes were all entered as «o many logs of ebony i Now it is quite evi- dent that too many of our employers of labour look upon the commodity and the de- sirableness of its increased importation in no o...

To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal, [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 29 March 1851

To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal, GENTLEMEN-In your number of Thursday last, there appeared an article on " Trial by Jury," in which occurs the following passage ; " Several persons who have heard or carefully read the evidence of the case adduced in court, are at a loss to know on whnt grounds ono half of the jury declined coming to a verdict of guilty, with the other half. Tho general opinion seems to bo that the ends of justice were defeated in this instanco by some of the jurors looking rather to consequences than to the evidence of the ease. A false lenity seems to bo shewn to the master ; and it is said that some shameful remarks were made regarding the poor girl, to the effect that it would bo a pity to injure a respectable man and his family on account of a mere bush orphan." You, thus shielding yourselves under the very vague expression " several persons," seek, while you do your utmost to blacken my character, to throw tho odium which you aro perfectly con- scious m...
