Dean M'Encroe was in the chair, and in open- I ing the proceedings of the evening, he said that it afforded him great satisfaction, as it must do to every member of St. Patrick's Society, to witness the progress the contractors had made in getting in the splendid gothic windows now in course of being put into the edifice. But they must he still better pleased to notice the progress the collectors had made in I raising funds to pay for these very tasteful and per- I feat specimens of Church architecture. The Apostle exhorted them to be emulous of doing good, and he e should, in a similar manner, press on these benevo- t lent gentlemen to continue with unabated exertions in this honourable work of raising funds to com plete the church of God.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847
FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. The " Committee for the -Defence of Religious Liberty," has addressed to its correspondents, under date " 14th September, 1840," a-circular, from which we extract a few passages which will show how encouraging is the result of the first movement made in France by Catholic electors in their character of Catholics. "' If there be one fact undeniable and loudly ae knowledged, it is that the intervention of the Ca- I tholics has been accepted in all the electoral colleges I where they have presented themselves; that the pro gramme traced in advance by them has been strictly followed; that they have continued in this cou rageous line of impartiality; and, lastly, that they have shown in the face of all France how much they are devoted above all other things to-the interests of conscience, the claims of families, and to liberty. " This firmness has had its reward. More than a hundred and thirty Deputies on our own knowledge have taken either in their professi...

Maitland. COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847
-0 (From the Maitland Alercury.) COMMERCIAL AND MARKETS. Trade has been scarcely so briskthis week although a fair business has been done. Brandy has risen considerably in consequence of the scarcity and rise in Sydney; Martell's cannot be obtained under 20s., nor in small quantities under 21s. or 22s.; an inferior kind is quoted at 15i., but we believe there is scarcely any stock in town either of it or the best. Rum has rather fallen, as has gin, which is obtainable at 21. 5s. to 21. ISs. per case. Arrowroot has suddenly risen, from a scarcity in Sydney, so great as to make it more than double the ordinary price. Sugar and tea remain the same, though the imports of the last lortnight have been considerable. Brandy was quoted yesterday at 25s., in consequence of advices from Sydney. Wool continues to pass through Maitland in large quantities everyday, most of it going on to Sydney ; what wool has been purchased in Maitland has varied from Is. to Is. 21d. per lb.

DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847
DENMARK. Tie journey of the King of Denmark to Schleswig was the occasion of popular demonstrations in that town. About 2,000 men assembled in the square before the Hotel de Ville, and after cheering vocife rously the advocate Beseler, a member of the states of the Duchy, and president of Neumunster, who had declared himself against the union of the prin cip lity with Denmark, went to tie residence of the new governor of Schleswig-llolstein, named Scheel, and gave him a charivari, which was repeated before the houses of several of the Government officers. Some disturbances followed these demonstrations, and the windows of the house of a Dane, who is said to'have been guilty of various provocations, were broken. After this exploit the crowd began to disperse, when a detachment of dragoons came and prevented the peace of the town frombeing further interrupted.

TRADE WITH JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847
TRADE WITH JAPAN. . (From the- rorn;ng Chronicle.) . With whatever force or clearness the press may point out the advantages of opening up a commerce with Japan, nothing is likely to be done by Govern ment until the manufacturing and mercantile classes prove, by meetings and memorials, or otherwise, that they take a strong interest in the matter; and in order to this it may perhaps be necessary to show with- what materials the trade would have to be carried on. Fortunately we have outlived that blind rage for the precious metals by which at one period all Europe was possessed. It is now understood that gold and silver are merely instruments of exchange, and that in themselves they are far from constituting the wealth of nations. Yet, considering the circum stances of the world, It must be obvious that a very profitable intercourse might be carried on between us and a country, which in return for our commo dities had nothing to ofer us but gold. In the case of the Japanese empire, ho...

The following is the account of their stewardship which has been made by tie Committee of the Gipps Land Expedition : " Report of the Committee appointed by the Public Meeting to arrange the Gipps Land Expedition. " The subscribers to the Expedition have already been apprised of the general progress and results of the Expedition, the most important eventofwhich has been the placing, beyond all question, the actual detention of a white female by oneof the Gipjps Land tribe of savages. " Upon the return of the Expedition, the Com mittee commenced a scrutiny of the causes of its failure, with an especial view to the investigation of certain imputations alleged against the leader, Mr. De Villiers, of useless delays, pusillanimity, and misappropriation of the funds. " The whole of these charges the Committee una nimously consider disproved. No delay took place but what was in strict accordance with Mr. De Vil liers' instructions to...
JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 17 March 1847
JERRY'S PLAINS. That awful disorder, scarlet fever, is said to have made its appearance here in one family amongst the children, five of which have been affected with it at once. It has shewn itself in a mild form, and the children are all in a fair way of recovery. From the precautions taken by the medical attendant, Dr. Stolworthy, the disorder is, I am happy to hear, not likely to extend itself beyond this family. The flying foxes, which are so destructive to the orchards and vineyards in the vicinity of Maitland, have paid a visit to us at Jerry's Plains this season, for the first time; and so mischevious have been their operations at Great Lodge, that Mr. Hobden's family have been obliged to keep.watch and ward throughout the night, to psevett the entire devasta. tion of their fruit trees and vines. Perhaps this apparent northward migration of these win'ged pests may account for their present scarcity.in the neigh. bourhood of Maitland. 11th March, 1847. DUNGOG. RonsBEa Es BY T...
