EXERCISE OF JUDICIAL DISCRETION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 March 1847
EXERCISE OF JUDICIAL DISCRE TION. IT is utterly impossible to divert .public attention from the gross difference -in the sentences passed upon different individuals, -convicted of offences of precisely the same character. Nor is" it a less impracticable task to reconcile these differences, with a sound discretion, and an impartial exercise of that attribute of mercy, which gives a si -militude to the dispensation of earthly and •heavenly justice. One person, for instance, free from the ordinary temptations to dishonesty-having .nothing- to urge in extenuation of his -crime--but onalthe contrary, his guilt being heinously aggravated by ingratitude, es capes with a short period of:imprisonment:; whilst another culprit, of less respedtablc! connexions, having no friends to give him a character for humanity, after having been guilty of an act of the grossest brutality, nor for general honesty, though he might have passed his life without yielding to the most powerful temptations to frau...

A candidate having been chosen agent of inquiry for the parish, from a list of unsuccessful candidates, and (amongst whom was a Mr. Pike), Mr. Douglas rose, and moved that Mr. Pike be called in before the vestry, to give him an opportunity of explaining away a report that had been circulated, viz., that he had taken, during Isis canvass, indecent liberties with a vestryman's ser vant-maid. The motion being seconded, a debate, pro and con, took place, of a far more farsical description than we ever witnessed on the mimic stage. During the discussion, however, the indecent l...

~icclcrsiatiral Intnl.lgntre: O-o- DEATH OF THE RIoir REV. DR. CROTTY, Bi SHOP OF CLOYNE AND Ross.-It is our melancholy duty to announce to our readers the death of one of the venerated prelates of Ireland-the Right Rev. Dr. Crotty, Bishop of Cloyne and Ross-a prelate distinguished for his piety and'unostentatious cha rity no less than for his ardent devotion to the cause of religion. The Right Rev. Dr. Crotty filled the episcopal office for thirteen years, having been con secrated on the 11th of June, 1833. Though ad vanced in years, the lamented prelate never allowed considerations of personal ease to detain him from the eflicient discharge of -his high duties. So late as last month, a sense of growing feebleness in duced him to call on the clergy of his diocese to elect for him a coadjutor; and though, we believe, his years might have well excused his absence, he was present at the memorable meeting of the Irish prelates in June, 1845, when the following resolution was adopted Th...
CONDITION OF IRELAND.—WHAT IS GOVERNMENT DOING? [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 24 March 1847
CONDITION OF IRELAND.-WHPIAT IS GOVERNMENT DOING P (From the Sun, Oct. 19.) Unless some'gigantic, systematic, and immediate ?xertiofi be made' for the physical and social salva tion of Ireland, the peasantry will not merely die away from sheer famine, they will not merely as semble in lawless and tumultuous armies, to the destruction of public tranquillity and the subversion of the benignant influences of civilisation, but in all humah likelihood our sister island will again be desolated by. those ruthless and bloody deeds of as sassination for the prevention of which the so called Coercion Bill was introduced last session into the Houses of-Parliament. We are not evoking any hypothetical error for the purpose of expediting the movements of those delegated officials to whom the destitute Irish are now looking for relief and employment. The dread *of the revival of these heinous and detestable crimes does not originate in the despondency of a diseased imagination. We would to God tha...

JOHN DUNMORE LANG REDIVIVUS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847
7JOI'N DUNMORE LANG REDI VIVUS. IT is remarkable that some meoi's names are identified with particular acts of excellence or atrocity. A " Howard" is synonymous with a philanthropical '-reformer -of the abuses of gaols. A "Jack Shepherd" best conveys the notion of a man whom no prison walls can confine. A" ''urpin," means a dauntless but generous highway nan; .and .amongst us here, a "Lang," with "John Dunmore" prefixed, would most emphatically describe an inexorable stirrer .up of religious -strife Although absent in the body, his spirit, it isepiinful to witness, is actively at work in producing dissensions and personal ani mosities amongst that body of Christians to which he nominally belongs. We presume'notto' have-the right.of ad. judicating in the cases to which we refer. There. is, however, we do not hesitate to declare, prima facic evidence, that the con tentious, reckless, and yet subtle animus of this-notorious ecclesiastic, has been so in fluential as -to leave his desert...

THE 'SYDNEY CHRONICL. SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1847. 'EIE (GOVERNOR, SIR CHARLES A. FITZ ROY. 'IN our last number we found occasion to remind the Colonists of New South Wales, thatthe internal mangement of their public affairs by the local authorities, was the su preme bbject to which, at the present critical, revolutionary, volcanic period of European ,polities, their attention should be directed. 'In so saying, it will be found, that we -have not stultified ourselves by any contra. .vention of the diclum from our pen, that the state of the mother country was that .on which our welfare, as its offshoots, must for an indefinite length of time depend. To that, as a political axiom, we adhere. '1The condition of the foreign relations of England-the feebleness, or rather the dis union of her cabinet-the pressing exi aencies of the times on the respective d.'epartments of the highest offices of go ,tvernment, will not, at present, we re peat, warrant the expectation that any great strength. ...
