MR. SIDNEY HERBERT'S EMIGRATION SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

MR. SIDNEY HERBERT'S EMIGRATION SCHEME. y\ e insert the following sensible letter from a gentle man who knows well what kind of emigrants are wanted for the colony. ' Richmond-hill, near Liverpool, 5th Jan. 1850. ' Dear Sir, — I am in receipt .of your favour of 22nd ult.,and herewith send your fifty pounds, but it is surrendering my own judgment to your benevolent indentions, and that of other gentle men who are co-operatincr with you in the emigration scheme. It, probably, may make a few happy ; but needlewomen are not wanted in new agricultural colonies, and you will find you cannot relieve those at home ; for new comers from Ireland and elsewhere will press foi a share of the employment, miserable as the wages are. Unless we ean make the labouring classes more thoughtful, and not saddle themselves with numerous families by marrying early, I see no remedies for the evils we labour under. My hope is, that if we can raise funds to educate the people better, it may induce them to thi...

THE GORHAM CASE AND THE REV. G.'A. DENISON. Mr. Hume called attenton to three documents he held in his hand relating to the decision in the case of Gor ham v. the Bishop of Exeter. The first was a protest by the Rev. G. A. Denison, vicar of East Brent, in the county of Somerset, against the state of the law em powering the Privy Council to take cognizance of mat 'ters of Church doctrine ; and the second a warning to the people of his parish not to be moved or influenced by the Privy Council's decision, but to assist without delay in obtaining a formal declaration by a lawful synod of the Church of England of what is and what is not the doctrine of the Church of England in respect to baptism. Mr. Hume wished to know what notice the Government intended to take of this protest, published in ali the papers, and denying the supremacy of the Crown as head of the Church ? — Lord John Russell said * that, in justice to Mr. Denison, he would read a docu ment sent to him that morning, stating...

MR. WILLIAM BROWN, M.P., ON PROTECTIONISM IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

MR. WILLIAM BROWN, M.P., ON PROTEC TIONISM IN THE UNITED STATES. The member for South Lancashire has addressed an important letter ' to the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States.' After showing that the American Government may levy duty on imports, and that the fathers of the constitution took good care to forbid the imposition of. duties on exports, he proceeds : — ' There is a point beyond which, if you increase your duties, you decrease your revenue. J_,et me give you a * simple illustration of this — Suppose you can buy a bale of French silks for 500 dollars, but to protect your ma nufacturing interests you place on it an import duty of 100 per cent., making the cost to the consumer 1000 dollars. Now if this 100 per cent, duty did not exist, 100 barrels of flour at 5 dollars per barrel, would have paid for those silks ; but by this extra duty you either put it out of the farmer's or consumer's power to buy, v or he must pay 200 barrels of flour of 1000 dollars for it.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. EDUCATION— No. III. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) Gentlemen,— The supporters or the National School system in this colony have made one article of their charges against the Denominational plan to consist in a complaint or the poor set of books that some years ago, eleven years ago, were to be fouud in schools — a few torn catechisms, a Vvse's spelling book, a Mavor's, a Dilworth's, a tattered Testament or two lying on the floor— such is the list that one gentleman, who offered evidence before the Legislative Council, gives of the books that were ordinarily found. — Now, divesting this statement of its rhetorical dress in which it was paraded oeiore me nonoraDie uommiuee, it amounts, i presume, to so much as this, that it was impossible to provide the children with an uniform set of books. And no wonder ; the shops of the colonial booksellers did not at that period afford the means of fur nishing a class of fifteen or twenty boys with the same bo...

&mmtvv Ns&ss. Extract of a Letter dated Wellington, July 27th, 1850, to a friend in Sydney. ' I am sure you will be pleased to hear that the Rev. Mr. Farrelly has been up here for near a fortnight, and did a great deal. of good amongst the old drunkards.

(To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

(To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) Gentlemen,— In the fifth number of your admirable journal, I have read a moat heart-rending account of the suffering Irish. I now recollect that the Jews, who were once the chosen people of God, fell from their happy vocation, so as to become the executioners of their new born King, by whose blood the world was redeemed. It now appears, that that nation, wherein once the laws of God were cherished, his praises sung, his children loved, and which bore on its beauteous surface the glorious saints of old — has now become degenerate, and exults in having a government, which, no doubt, i'= ;.. tiia wive «f PrnwifipnpA the instrument of nlaciner the Irish people in the footsteps of Christ. ' If you wish to become my disciple,' take up your cross and follow me.' In povery, cold, nakedness, and oppression.

IRELAND. DR. CAHIL IN DUBLIN— A PICTURE OF IRE LAND, PAST AND PRESENT. A correspondent has sent us an extract from a sermon preached by Dr. Cahil, in North Anne-street church, on the evening of Patrick's Day. Ireland's years of sor row in the olden time — Ireland's suffering during past persecution— Ireland's torture during recent famine and pestilence, together with the loss of O'Connell, are all touched with the hand of a master.

THE CONVERSION OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

THE CONVERSION OF ENGLAND. The following highly-interesting letter from Fr. Ignatius (Hon. and Rev. G. Spencer), appears in the Rambler for January. We very slightly abridge it :— TO THE EDITOR OF THE RAMBLER. Most dear to my heart is the idea of a general move ment of the Irish people to effect this great achievement, the conquest of England for the Church of God by spiritual arms, the first of which is prayer. In a little address of mine to the Catholics of Ireland, I say that my thoughts had long been fixed on Ireland, as calcu lated to be the principal instrument in bringing back England to the Catholic Faith ; this has been the case, in a special manner, ever since I had begun to make it ray business to beg the prayers of the faithful throughout the world for the conversion of England. And what I know of the Irish character, from my intercourse with them as a Priest on the mission in England, made me confident that they would respond warmly to such an appeal. It was, however, n...

THE SYDNEY CORPORATION AMENDMENT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

THE SYDNEY CORPORATION AMENDMENT ACT. On this Bill going into Committee on Thursday night the Colonial Secretary stated that the Government had resolved on certain modifications on the measure as in the first instance proposed. These were to retain the present number of Councillors, viz., 24, 6 Aldermen, and a Mayor. The Councillors and Aldermen both to be elected bv the citizens at large, and the first to hold office for one, and the latter for three years. The Mayor was however to be elected by the Council, but by ballot; and as it was deemed that it would be invidious to at once dismiss the Corporate Body, it had been determined to rest satisfied with such infusion of new blood, as would annually result from the retirement of present members and election of new ones. In answer to questions by Mr. Nichols the Colonial Secretary replied that no in tention existed at present to alter the Franchise, as the House would shortly have to fix a general one under the new Constitutional Act...

THE ROYAL SUPREMACY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

THE ROYAL SUPREMACY. The controversy about the ' Gorham case' has thrown the Established Church into such a ferment that results of great moment must inevitably follow. The Bishop of Exeter has, in plain terms, declared that he will no longer hold communion with the Archbishop of Canter bury, if his Grace carries into effect the decision of the Queen, speaking by her Privy Council. Whether bis Lordship purposes to submit to the Catholic Church, or to set up some new schismatical sect, remains to be seen, but one or the other course he must certainly adopt, unless he is prepared to eat his own words, and acknow ledge that he wrote them under excitement. Our readers, we doubt not, will be glad to see precisely what it is that he says. We will give them, therefore, the last sentences of his letter to the Archbishop of Canter bury : — ' Meanwhile I have one most painful duty to perform. I have to protest not only against the judgment pronounced in the recent cause, butalso against the r...

THE LEGAL PROFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 8 August 1850

THE LEGAL PROFESSION. The proposal for amalgamating the Legal Profession has been revived. Mr. Brewster tried the scheme and failed, but the Member for the Northumberland Boroughs believes that he can command success, where the Mem ber for Port Phillip met with disappointment and de feat. Mr. Nichols' motion for leave to introduce a Bill to abolish the distinction between barristers and attorneys stands over by consent until the return of the Hon. the Attorney-General, by whom it will probably be opposed in its first stage. It will be better indeed to try this question at the outset, for if, as we anticipate, the pro posal should be a second time rejected, there is no reason why the public should be put to the expense of printing and publishing this new effort of Mr. Nichols9 legislative genius. The only tangible argument in favor of such a step is — that it would make law cheaper to the client. It is admitted that great advantages are derived from the separation of the Legal Profes...

' The second reading of this Bill to abolish this impost was postponed on last Friday to that day week/in con sequence of the absence of the Attorney-General. In the mean time petitions have continued to flow in against the tax. APPROPRIATION OF THE LAND FUND. On Friday Mr. Darvall moved a series of resolu tions, relative to the appropriation of the Land Fund. Their effect was that since the year 1836 £1,179,000 had been expended by the colony from its Land Fund in re lieving Great Britain of 78,500 souls, comprising 27,000 adult laborers, a portion of her distressed population. That there was at the present time a charge of £100,000 on the Land Fund. That the colonists had not derived the advantage the mother country had by this immigra tion, and that had they possessed the control of their Land Fund, at least one half of the expense would have been paid either by the Home Government or Parishes. That as the Home Government offered comp...
