British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 March 1847
3ritis Extrasct -a SINCULAR ADULTBRATION OF CHAMP.ANE.-A singular mode of increasing the intoxicating power" of Campagne has recently been discovered in Ger many. It appears that a wine-merchant of Rheims has for some yeas s past enjoyed the almost exclusive privilege of supplyingthe kitigdomof Wurtemburg with that wine, and that an extraordinary effect has been noticed to attend the drinking of i single glass thereof. After several analyses of to. wine had been made, the contents of sonme of the bottles were examined by Liebig, who ascertaiied by analysirig its gases, that it contained oate volume of carbonic acid gas, and two of the laughing gas or protoxide of nitrogen. The last named gas, the peculiar flilets produced by which on the animal economy, whenit has been respired, are well known, is prepared by the drcomposition of the nitrate of ammonia. If this salt be at all impure, and not unfrequently when' it is used absolutely pure, riitrous acid is evolvied in the first instan...
ENGLAND AND FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 March 1847
ENGLAND AND FRANCE. (From the Weekly Dispatch.) AMa. Entroa,-For many years we liave been led to trust in the actual imposs'bility of war between the enlightened nations.' M'uch of the security of peace depended upon this faith. The constant repe tition of the absurdity aird bat barism of an appeal to arms. the mingled contempt and horror with which warfare" was constantly treated, put the idea of bluodshed o'ut of men's calculations, and made the worst fearful of obloquy in reviving it. The spell of this noble public opinion is, in a great de gree, broken. No man in his senses has ever thought that the marriage of a French Prince with a Spanish Infanta - the outwitting, or absolute cheating, of Lord Palmerston by Louis Philippe could ever lead to direct hostilities. Nonsense enough has been talked by all parties as to rights and en gagements; and on the other side of the Channel, a spirit of rampant ru.i inism, determined to hold all it had got, has been offensive enouglh; but the ...

EPHEMERAL POPULARITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 March 1847
EPHEMERAL POPULARITIES. (From the Spectator.) It is curious to reflect on the materials out of which a people makes, for the most part, its political leaders and regenerators. Without looking beyond our own country, let us cast our eyes back' upon the Wilkeses, Hunts, Burdetts, and the rest of them. Deified at the outset of their career, neglected when not vilified at its close, these men ire the same throughout. Placed in prominent positions by the pressure of circumstances, or their own craving for notoriety-possessed of a flashy power of pleas ing, without comprehensive views or an aim clearly understood by themselves-endowed with only those superficial talents which never ripen into mature fruits-their devotees. It s to the medium through which they are seen that thcy.owe their transitory distinction. The real public men of eminence are few. Of those in the regular or ollicial line of bu siness in this country, for the last century and a half, perhaps Walpole, thi younger Pitt, ...
THE PRESENT STATE OF THE MONEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 March 1847
THE 'PRESENT STATE OF TIHE -MONEY MARKET. (From the Alorning Chronicle.) To the casual observer, and to those who have been taught by our contemporaries during the last six months to look only to some such stringent interfer ence on the.part of. government as would arrest by bhcer force a-great majority of the railway .specula tions of the past year, as the only means of saving the country from a great financial convulsion, it must be a most -inexplicable.puzzle to find-at the close of a session which has sanctioned the construc -tionof railways nominally demanding one hundred and fifty millions of'the national capital to complete them--the directors of the Bank of.England actually reducing their rate of interest, and our city corres pondent reporting ",money more easy" than .it has -been known for a long time. It would, however, be a-very grrat error to take this act of the Bank directors, or :.the general abundance of money, with a.rising price of .public securities, as a conclusi...

REVIEIW. (Fromn the Beacon.) .Annals of the Virgin Saints. :By a Priest of the Churca of England. London: Joseph Masters. .Cambridge: J. T. Walters. 1840. Small 8vo. pp. 416.. ' 'Tliis is one of those -beautifilly, but painfully ,mysterious brochures, whereof so.many have up-. ipeared during the last:few years. -It is the .work of a 'mind-full of Catholic feeling, Catholic devotion, and 'Catholic revererentialness ; but by some strange and ,mysterious blinding influence still prevented from raking:that clear view of its grounds of faith and ,practice which alone can enable it.to realize its ,position, and shake off the -heavy bonds of schism.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 March 1847
ST. PATRICK'S DAY. Wednesdaiy last being the anniversary, of tihe patron saint of Ireland was observed by the sons of the Emerald Isle as a holiday. The day was beauti fully fine, and at an early hour the members of the St. Patrick's Total Abstinence Society assembled at St.Patrick's Hall, Church Hill, from which place, ac companied by their splendid banners and their ex cellent hand they walked in procession through the principal streets of the city. At eleven o'clock solemn High Mass was cele brated in St. Patrick's Church by the Rev. J. C; Sumner,, and a panegyric upon St. Patrick was de livered by the Very Rev. Dr. Gregory, Vicar Gene ral. The splendid and commodious edifice was crowded to excess in every part-at the conclusion of the service a collection amounting to upwards of 201. was made towards the funds for the completion of the building. The panegyric pronounced by the Very Rev. the Vicar General was a most beautiful and eloquent discourse, and one which we are sure coul...
AMERICAN AFFAIRS. NEW YORK, OCT. 31. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 March 1847
AMERICAN AFFAIRS. NEW YORK, OCTr. 31. Tihe public are at present the attentive audience of the drama which has just closed its fourth act in Mexico. The third act-lassitudeof popular interest. with which the mere march of thle army from Ca margo was looked upon-was as effectually roused as manager Polk could desire by tile brilliant successes at Monterey; and to the next drawing up of the curtain, and the hero's progress tllrough the fifth act to the denouement of a battle with Santa Anna, all eyes are now eagerly bent forward. It is curious bow the necessary variety of a drama, and the pro gressive tests put to the qualities of General Taylor, have been bodied forth to this real-lifeplay as artis tically as if contrived in the brain of a dramatist. Each trial of his skill has been in different mode of warfare. At Palo Alto the action was upon an open plain, where the cavalry of the enemy told to advant age, and where, by the formation of regiments into square fortifications of fles...
