FIFTEEN DAYS' LATER NEWS FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 27 December 1856

FIFTEEN DAYS'. LATER NEWS FROM ENGLAND. By the arrival of the Oneida, steamer, from Southampton, we have news from England to the 18th of October. The Oneida came to anchbr on Tuesday night last, about ten o'clock, having made the run in sixty-four days, eleven days of ivhich were spent in coaling at St. Vincent, St. Helena, and the Cape. Among the passengers were our new Governor, Sir Henry Barkly, and suite, who, on the '.following morning, landed: at Sand ridge in a very quiet manner, and proceeded at once to Toorak. Nothing in the shape of a demonstration was made in honor of the event, with the exception of the salutes fired from the Sir Harry Smith and the Victoria steam sloop, with the throwing up of sundry rockets and the display of numerous lights from the shipping in the Bay. The Arqus tells.us that the Municipal Coinicil of :Williamstown was the first public body to -welcome Sir Henry; to these.shores;: but we find, up.on.inquiry, thlit ou Council is `asrtiCm the dark po ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 27 December 1856

WooDAiAS, SrAnRE TIT T'r Ra.It- n the rep xtof the proceedings of the last met-?ig of our _unicipal Council, published this day, we o'seze that a petition was presented to that boctsigned by fifty-five rate-payers of Williamstown, praying 'that the Notice     Tree,' situated the foot of Thompson-street, might remain undisturbed by the works in course of construction in Nelson -place," and we find that the disposal of this petition was not affected without some difficulty. It appears, however, that the Council after several mo tions had been put and rejeised, came to the conclusion that " the tree be removed, if prac ticable, to the public gardens, provided that such removal would not interfe with the   works in progress." We are not in the habit of laughing at people when they happen to differ with us in opinion upon any point, nor are we given to fault-finding with the decisions   of our Council in the performance of their duties....

Original Correspondence. THE LATE SOIREE. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 27 December 1856

THE LATE SOIREE. [To the Editor of the WILLITAMSTOW CHRONICLE.] Sir,-- As an observer of the progress of Williamstown, and a reader of your joumal, which I may remark makes its way in places probably not thought of by yourself, will you permit me the insertion of a few remarks in it with reference to the proposed Institute. It is not my purpose to notice the late fracas, suffice to say, it presented a somewhat ludicrous appearance to an observer, and the mechanics around you had well nigh cause to cry, " Save us from our friends:"-How 'ever that danger. is I trust, past now and, "Advance," appears to be the present watch word amongst you. But, Sir, do not think the Institution you are evidently so interested in is likely to be pro moted by addresses like that which fell from the Rev Mr. Henderson on the evening of your re-union. I read it with much pain, as coming from the lips of a minister. For my self, I could have wished to have seen inserted some of the valuable ideas and most ...

A WORD TO "PROGRESS." [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 3 January 1857

A WORD TO "-PROGRESS." [ To the LEit;r of th:e ViLLitA.uSTOwX Cunnurrets. Sli?,-Permit me through the columns of your journal, to say a word or two to AMr. Progress, who figured so paitfully there last week. I should like to ask him what sort of pain he felt on reading the report of Mr. I-lenderson's speech at the late Soiree? If lihe felt grieved that 'Mr.. H. had laid open his christian character to rebuke, would it not have been Wise on his part to have written him privately and pointed out those things which were calculated to " bring dishonor on his profession ?" It would appear that Progress had not the moral courage to do this; yet. rebuke he must, and so takes up the assassin's place, and from the thick darkness of black ink, pierces his victim and makes hasty retreat. I have read something like the following: Who steals my purse stcnls trash ; 'Tis something-notiling, 'twas minoc, 'tis his, And has been slave to thousands. t But hewrbo filchesfrom me'my good nanle;: - Robs ...

[To the Editor of the W~rLLIAMsTOw~ CxnioscLr..] Sm,--With 'reference to a few words that appeared in your last issue in a letter signed "Progress," in which the writer quoting ap parently from some publication, declares "the 1ev. Sydney Smith to be the clerical buffoon of.the Church of England." I desire to say, that as a minister of that Church, I felt shame that such a statement could be made of any minister of the spiritual religion of the Saviour; indeed, since reading it, I have in quired if the writer of that letter had grounds for his statement, or whether his quotation was a correct one? I regret to say that it is too true. I am informed that Sydney Smith is regarded by many persons in the character described by " Progress." For myself, you Swilallbow me to say, I disclaim all sympathy iwith any minister so- called. I fear S ndii~y ,Smith belongs to a class too common in the Church of England, and to be found-rather where ...

THE OLD TREE. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 3 January 1857

THE OLD TREE. [To the Editor of the WI?rLLAtSTro wN CuRO?sCLE.J Smt,-I have been somewhat amused of late by the infatuated love which has beeri displayed by a few of my fellow-townsmen for the "old oak tree" at the foot of Thomp son-street, and the very energetic measures which have been made to secure its preser-. vation and its quiet repose in the centre of our principal thoroughfare. Like yourself, I was at a loss to discover the qualities which this tree possessed apart from other trees, and it was not until after much research that I have discovered the secret. It appears that many long year' before the arrival of a white man upon these shores, that this part of the colony which we now call Williamstown was selected by the abori ginies as their place of rendezvous every month; and beneath the foliage of that old tree have sat the King of the Cannibals and all his wives. and warriors. Numerous, too, have been the corroborees which have taken place on the same spot; and, it is sa...

Love is as natural to a women as fragrance is to a rose You may lock a girl up in a convent - you may confine her in a cell - you may cause her to change her religion, or for swear her parents; these things are possible ; but never hope to make the sex forgo their cashmeres ; for such a hope will prove as bootless as the Greek Slave, and as hollow as a bamboo. NO ONE'S ENEMY BUT HIS OWN. -No one's enemy but his own happens generally to be the enemy of everybody with whom he is in relation. The leading quality that goes to make this character is a reckless imprudence and a selfish pursuit of selfish enjoyments, in dependent of all consequences. "No one's enemy but his own" runs rapidly through his means; calls in a friendly way on his friends, for bonds, bail, and securities; involves his nearest kin, leaves his wife a beggar, and quar ters his orphans upon the public;, and after enjoying himself to his last guinea, entails a life of dependence on his progeny, and dies in the ill-und...
