DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT GRAVESEND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 March 1847
.DSTRUCTIVE FIRE AT G.RAVESEND. Shortly after twelve o'clock on Thursday night, the town of Gravesend, which has of late years suf fered severely from frequent fires, was, we regret to say, the scene of another calamity, greater in mag nitude, as regards the destruction of property, than any of the former, consuming no fewer than forty houses, and numerous other buildings to a very .great extent. Singular to say, ts .locality is the same as the former fires, West-street, extending along the water side from near the Town Pier to the Roslierville Gardens; and it is supposed that at least half of .the street, with tile houses on each side, is laid in ruins, including several on the west side of High street, and those bounding the courts at hea back. From inquiries made it appears that about half ,past .12 o'clock some .watermen, who were at the Town Pier stairs, waiting the arrival of a foreign steamer, observed a body of smoke hovering over the.premises occupied by Mr. Garret, tea-dea...

SUPPOSED DISCOVERY OF A MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 March 1847
SUPPOSED DISCOVERY OF A MURDERER, (From the Alaitland Mercury.) Some of our readers may remember that in last October we gave a report of an inquest held in East Maitland on the body of a man which had been found in the bush near the Morpeth road. The body had been accidentally found lying in a thick clump of prickly. furze, and from the state it was in had evidently been laying there some weeks. The body was that of a man of about five feet four or five inches high, but no legible papers or other matters were found about the body which could afford any information as to whose it was, nor had any person been missing recently in Maitland or Morpeth. The body was laying face downwards, and on the right side of the head appeared a large hole, the bone having been not only fractured, but actually driven in. No weapon could be found anywhere about. The jury returned a verdict of wilful murder against some person or persons unknown, and the unfortu nate man was concluded to have been some...

TIIE :SYDNEY CHRONICLLE. -WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 1847. F .FR.ENCIH- AND ENGLISH .NEWS. HAVmIN before us a-French journal-of the 'latest date, we can discover nothing that enables us to add a single particle of infor mation to that which we have communicated ,through the -agency of the English press. It is a perfect bore to those whose office it is to cater intelligence for the readers of newspapers,, relative to the politics of Europe, to have to lBear the vapourings of the French ministerial journals. England, .a perfide Albion, is the tune perpetually rung in our ears. The part that the British Government will eventually take in conse quence of the recent plot of Louis. Philippe to sustain his dynasty on the French throne, is evidently-he sole ground of their bullying defiance. "It is this, while the French jour dsalists hope to live by their vocation, which; forces itself upon their constant, attention. As it regards her foreign policy, Great Britain "holds on the noiseless tenor o...

The British squadron was in a state of instant preparation for receiving and protecting the Queen and family, if deemed neces sary, and no sailors or marines had landed. The American frigate which had sailed for Oporto, was not only not alldwed to enter, but had been fired upon by the batteries and totally dismasted, and had been towed into a neighbouring port.

IRELAND. The following letter from the Liberator, was read at the weekly meeting of the Repeal Assoiiation, on Monday, the 5th of October : " Darrynane Abbey, Caliirciveen, 2nd October, 1846. " My. dear Ray-I once again attempt to excite publle attention to the absolute necessity of forming in Dublin a central body, bpard or asgoclation, from amongst the landed proprietors of Ireland, to take into consideration the present state and future pro spects of the people, in order to suggest and carry out means of meeting the horrible emergency in which the country is involved. "I am fully, convinced that individual applica tions to Government, or to Parliament, will never be sulliciently efficacious. Such applications may pro duce a mitigation in. particular localities ; but they can never produce anything like a universal remedy for the giant evils by which we are surrounded, or for the still more terrific calamities which mustensue from the total destruction of this year's potato clop, ...

FANATICISM EXTRAORDINARY. ' (From the TYpperary Vindicator.) The Rev. Mr. Fry,"aProtestant Curate in the dio ceseof Killaloe," hlas published a letter in which he denounces the recent agricultural diner given in Nenagh in the ,moit indignant terms;, i 'cause a' Popish priest said grace," and 1i which he reghius this incident as a sign of these latiter days "Rt ap* palling to. contemplate! . He takes occasion inthe same most precious epistle to praise to the skies a certain description of potatoes which he denominates " Protestants". and which he states on accountof their " Protestantism"' are sound of heart, and d?x cellent in health, without taint or canker, and fit for .the table of her Majesty the Queen'. A rarer cloen of unmitigated balderdash than this same letter of the Protestant Curate, we have seldomo stumbled upon.
