Gritiss8 Exlracts. . -o DRSTRUrrTON. OF TIlE GAaRRIc: TiE.LTRB nl' FIRa.-On Wednesday morning, between the hours of 4 and 5, police-constable 9D I1, whilst passing along his beat, discovered smoke and sparks issuing from the Garrick Theatre, in Leman-street, Good man's Fields. This satisfied the oflicer that a fire was raging within the theatre. Without a moment's loss of time an alarm was spread in the usual way; but before any of the inhabitants could be aroused from their slumbers, the fire told its own tale by breaking through the roof. For some time the greatest excitement and confusion prevailed, the ascent of the hflmes being so extraordinarily rapid, that in the brief space of ten minutes at least one half of. the. building became enveloped in flames. An instant attempt was made to get the, fire sub duedl, but, upon an entry into the theatre being made, it became a matter of certainty that at least the entire structure must fall a prey to the destruc tive element. Indeed it ...

DEATH BY STARVATION!!! [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

DEATH BY STARVATION I ! W; e have received the following truly afflicting and terrible statement from the Rev. Cornelius O'Brien, the respected Parish Priest of Lurrah and Durrow : O T11E EDIT?OR OF THE " TIPPERARY VINDICATOR." Sir-I have to inform you of another victim of starvation. A Coroner's Inquest was held on the lands of Redwood, in the parish of Lurrah, on yes terday, the 24th, on the body of Daniel Hayes, who for several days subsisted almost on the refuse of vegetables, and went on Friday morning in quest for something in the shape of food, but had not gone far when he was obliged to lie down, and, melan choly to relate, was found dead some time afterwards. He was well able to work before starvation fastened upon him, and plenty of public works were struck out in the neighbourhood by the ° Extraordinary Road Sessions," but not one yet commenced. Bow long, Mr. Editor, are we to be deluded by this neglect P Our Relief Committee has been formed and sanctioned three weeks, an...

NEWSTEAD ABBEY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

NEWSTEAD ABBEY. Newstead Abbey is a noble pile; and as associated with the name of Byron, must, for ages to come,be a house of renown. We went leisurely over it; and then adjourned to the grounds. Every objectseems to recall the poet and his writings. There is the nobly proportioned ruined arch, magnificent even in decay, through which the wind sighs so wildly, and which the bard has vividly described in a fine stanza of one of the most objectionable of his poems. The lake too, in which he and " Boatswain" used to gambol, was before us-a broad sheet of water, and covered, when we saw it, under the influence of a fresh breeze, with mimic waves. Looking full upon this lake is the poet's bed.room. The furniture in it as having been used by him, naturally arrests at tention. Its value consists entirely with Itsassocia tion with Byron'. It 'i old, ill-used, and shabby. We saw the monument raised by the poet to his favourite-" Boatswain," and the tree where he had carved his own atndhis s...

FAMINE IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

FAMINE IN IRE?,AND. (From the Tablet.) We find it impossible to make the remarks we intended on this all-important, all-gloomy subject. The prospect still continues what it was, or, rather, the hard reality has commenced; and what people are now waiting for is to see whether the measures of relief already enacted and widely discussed will, when they come into operation, piroduee any tangi ble effect in coping with this mighty disaster. Meanwhile we are delighted to find that the prin ciple of " Fixity bf Tenure" as a remedy for the present distress-or, more properly speaking, as a preventive for the future-is beginning, to receive the valuable support of the Morning Chronicle. We extract the greater part of the article to which we refer : FlxIrs op TBNURS.- The:e words express a mode of abolishing cottier tenancy, the reverse, in all respects, of the clearing system ; the reverse in practice, and still more decidedly contrary in theory. For while the one recognises no rights in anyb...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

APPREHENSION o? PETER PIDGooN.-Thhis man, charged with the murder of William Taylor, late of Wollongong, was apprehended at Wollongong on Wednesday last, the 17th instant. He appears to have gone direct back to his own hut at Wollongong when he left Maitland the previous Wednesday. He was forwarded to Maitland, and las been brought up before the Maitland bench several times since, and different witnesses examined, and was again re manded yesterday. He has not yet been called on to make any statement to the bench, but to the Wollongong police he told somewhat contradictory tales of the way he became possessed of Taylor's clothing, some of which he denied ever having been Taylor's.

THE GODLESS COLLEGES ONCE MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

THE GODLESS COLLEGES ONCE MORE. (From the Tablet.) .The Nation, in an article of last week, returns to this subject, and, in effect, though apparently with out intending to do. so, withdraws the substance of its original, contradiction. :It replies.thus to the Freeman's Journal : " In proof error, the Freemanadds this new and less stern version of its original statement :_ " The position in which the matter stands is this ---the Cardinals appointed by his Holiness to inspect and report upon the several documents laid before himr n reference to the intended Irish Colleges, have reported against the system propounded by the Go vernment. " Neither can we give any credit to this version, svhich appears to us a mere and very lame surmise of the Freenan's informant, by way of apology for his former 'fiction. It is a safe surmise, however; for thiogh he can know nothing as to such a re port, if it exists, neither can any other individual save the Cardinals reporting and the Holy Fa ther. T...

CLONMEL. (From the T7pperary. Vindicator.) We have'godl, we have truly benevolent men in. this quarter-and this, as well as the season which is approaching, will require the exercise of the vir tues for which their lives have been distinguished. Amongst the foremost is Mr. John Murray, of the Marlfield Distillery, who is selling Indian meal to his labourers at 14d. per stone, at a time when otherg are charging 2s. to the public; he de serves. the gratitude of these poor fellows and their children. Captain Osborne.of Newtown An ner, is alopting the same benevolent course towards all the persons in his employment, and I have heard that others here are giving provisions at first cost to those in any way connected with their mills or stores.

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

The most important news from Van Diemen's Land is the re-instalment of the six members of the Legislative Council who resigned their seats during Sir Eardley Wilmot's tenure of the Government: The following is the hlobart Town. Courier's ac count of the proceedings on the occasiof : The events of the early part of the present week have been of singular. interest and importance. Our readers are already aware that the members of the ,late and present Legislative Council were summoned to meet at Government House on last Wednesday,. for the purpose, as most correctly expressed in the Circular, of having the "contents" of tile despatch received by his Excellency from the Secretary of State, respecting the Legislative Council, made known ,to them. The town was consequently in a state of very considerable anxiety pending the period that the twelve members were at Government House, and this excitement was still more increased when, upon their emergence, it was immediately discovered that no...

W'tarltc; -o An accident of a very singular description is re counted by the Glasgow Courier, as having occur red to a native of that city, whiien recently bathitng at Ardentinuy. The gentleman in question, while swimming at some distance fro:m the shore, was sud denly attacked by a large medntsa or galley fish, which so clogged his movements that hie was in im minent danger of being drowneil, and it was with difficulty he disencumbered himself so far as to ad mit of his diving. by which lie freed himself for the moment from his unwonted assailant. Unfortt nately, however, on rising to the surface, he again came in contact with the animal, which this time began to sink along with him, andt had it not been for the assistance of a fisherman, who, attracted hy his cries, rowed hastily to the rescue, the result might very possibly have been fatal.

CONDITION OF THE PEOPLE.—CONTINUED APATHY OF LORD JOHN RUSSELL.—STARVATION AND DEATH! [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

CONDITION OF THE PEOPLE.-CON TINUED APATHY OF LORD JOHN RUS SELL.-STARVATION AND DEATH ! (From the Tipperary Vindicator, October 28.) If Lord John Russell shall continue blind to the signs of the times, he is evidently unfitted for the position he usurps in the place of an abler and a better statesman; the earlier, in a word, he aban dons the perilous elevation, the better for the Em pire. The storm of indignation against himself personally, and the excessive bitterness which is be ginning to prevail against his Cabinet, and which his insane obstinacy has cbnjured up from the lowest depths, are increasing daily. in magnitude and intensity. Disappointment is augmenting the fierce violence of the tempest. If matters proceed as they are going on, we do deplore to avow, for the sake of many inestimable members of. the party, that the word " Wlhig" must for ever smell rank in the nostrils of Irishmen, and that any other party whatever must be far and away preferable to that which allures...

CORONER'S JURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

•CORONER'S JURIES. (From the Mlorning Chronicle, Nov. 21.) Of the many causes which secure to social abuses and anomalies a protracted tenureof existence, none, perhaps, contributes so much to their vitality as the obstinacy with which the absurdities on which they are based withdraw themselves from public observa tion, and sliun even the self-consciousness of the habitual acquieseents in some time-lonoured farcical solemnity. In every department of the public service, as well as in all the contingencies of social and professional intercourse, foolish acts are daily perpetrated, by shrewd and intelligent men, for no reason In the world than becausetheir predecessors for generations have sanctioned the like absurdity. Once in a dozen years, however, the frankness, or insouicance, of a self-willed participant throws a passing gleam of liglht on the causes, or on the working, of some rarely challenged abuse. The features of some monstrous corruption are momen tarily revealed in all the...

WASTE LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 27 March 1847

S WVASTE. LANDS (From the Launceseton Examiner.) .. It is not unprofitable to refer to other. countries for information on this topic. The great stream of emigration from the "British isles has long been rushing to America. The distance is short, the ex pense of transit comparatively small ; but the United States, not satisfied with a natural preference, have steadily endeavoured to attract by their land regulations. From an American paper before us we learn that in July last, the terms on which waste land was disposed of had been subjected to revision. We.copy the following without comment, leaving our readers to contrast the circumstances of America within three weeks sail of Britain, and those of Tasmania, separated from England by half the globe: TWENTY-NINTH CONGRESS.
