JIM CROW REDIVIVUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 March 1847
JIM CROW REDIVIVUS. We imagined until la«ely that there was no one purpose either useful or orna- mental to which the published works of our respectnble friend Thomas M'Com bie, Esq , could by any possibility, be arUnnugeously applied, the numby pamby school, boyishness of their style, and the utter inanity which form their distinguishing characteristics, being ob- stacles in the nay of turning them to atcouat which we really thought iusu perable. They say in Scotland, how- ever, where thrift is better understood than it is any where else, that " keep any thing for seven years and it will be found of use," and the wisdom of the saying is fully manifested in the case of Mr. M'Combie's printed lucubrations which have actually become of use within half the time. Thomas M'Cornbie, Esq., the author, is the same personage as Mr. Thomas M'Cornbie, the Editor, the difference in the title being the result of a solemn adjudication niter lengthened deliberation by our local Court of Honour-the...

THE LENT BILL OF FARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 March 1847
THE LENT BILL OF PARE. For the especial edification of our Romish friends we copy from the Syd- ney Chronicle the llev. Dr. Gregory's manifesto to " the faithful",] touching their Lent indulgences. The Rev. Dr. is, we are inclined to think, a little more liberal, particularly in the oleaginous line than was his Grace the Archbishop himself. The following is the docu- ment: REGULATIOXS FOR LENT, 1847. The general law of the Church which ordains abstinence from flesh meat during the entire Lent, is so far dispensed with, that the faithful are al- lowed to use meat on Sundays, Mondays, Tues- days, and Thursdays. This permission is to be used at dinner only-except on Sundays. Daring the first four days of Lent, and the last week, abstinence from meat is to be observed (except on Palm Sundny), after the manner of our forefathers. On fasting days, a collation may he taken in the morning and evening. A small quantity of milk, and ttlso of butter may he used. With res- pect io the latter, t...
