Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Sydney Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 31 March 1847

S4Original Correspon?l etice. -0 To the Editor of the Sydney Chronicle. "Sza-In the Herald of Friday last, is published 'n letter in the form of an advertisement signed 1' John Terry .Hughles," and headed " The case of Mr. John 'Terry Hughes.-Quarter Sessions, Feb •ruary the 5th, '1347; before a petit jury of the Zlowest grade." .As one of the jurors who tried the above case, I iwish to say a few words in reply to so infamous a charge, for I hold myself to be as respectable as Mr. ;J. T.'Hughes, nay more so, though not having the advantage of being possessed of so many thousand *acres of land. As to my own character, 1 could if ,necessary refer to several of the most respectable gentlemen and tradesmen in Sydney, who have knoin me for some years. In short, my character ie-wellknown in Sydney for the last seven years that "I have been a resident of this city. I beg also to state, that'I never in my life had any dealings with Mr. John Terry Hughes, so that I could not be biassed by an...

Sydney, 24th March, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847

Sydney, 24th March, 18:7.. * Saa,-In. reply to your, letter of 23rd instant, relative to ithe public procession through the streets of Sydney on the 17th instant, I have the honor to inform you that it was neither a party nor a reli cions procession, but tihe annual procession of Tee-. totallers who have publicly walked through the city since tile year" 1841, on each successive St. Patrick's" Day.'- This day having been uinfortuiaiitely: in former; years a day of drunkenness, and riot, was wisely selected, in my opinion, as most suitable for a public demonstration in favour of temperance and order i and the happy result seems fullyl to warrant the propriety'of having fixed on that day as the " anniversary" of Total Abstinence Societies. I beg further to state, that St. ,Patrick's Total Abstinence Society (of which I am President) has enrolled on its books upwards of 9,000 members, about one-fourth of whom are Protestants. The correctness of this statement can be verified by the insp...

THE PARTY PIOCESSIONS BIL.L. Attorney General's Office, 23rd March, 1847. VERY REVERTEND SIR,--MJy atten tion having been called to a public procession which took place through the streets of Sydney on the 17th instant, I take the. liberty of. addressing you on the subject, understanding that you are President of one of the Societies supposed to have formed that procession. It has been represented to me as a party religious procession, and in violation of the Act passed in the last session of the Legis lative Council, I make this inquiry with the view of ascertaining its real character, and I shall feel obliged for the information ; at the same time, I think it right to state, that if any of the provisions of the Act of Council have been infringed, it will be my duty, and is my determination, as public prosecutor, to enforce the law against those who can be proved to have broken it, as I am convinced that the future peace of society depends upon its strict observance. : I have the h...

PROJECTED COLONIZATION OF BORNEO. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847

PROJECTED COLONIZATION OF BORNEO. (From the Ewamincr, London.) On this subject we should like much to Bsee a little knowledge, and common intel ligence substitutedfor the dense.cloud of vapour and rhetoric in which we have seeni the subject lately enveloped. Borneo has been praised and recommendeddas "a great and fertile" island. The greatness is un questionable, seeing that it is more -than three times the size of Great Britain, but as to the fertility, it has certainly never been proved, or even tried by any one fit to judge. The Equator runs through it, leaving the larger portion in the northern hemisphere, but a handsome slice in the southern too-a slice bigger than our own island. "The remotest part of Borneo from the Equator is but seven degrees, away fron it, but the mass of the island is not above half that distance. If we fancy ourselves on the sweltry banks of the Maranon, we shall have a tolerable, notion of the climate of Borneo. It is hot and moist; there is neither a w...

LE VERRIER'S PLANET. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847

LE VERRIER'S PLANET. In his address to the British Association at South ampton, Sir John Herschell observed that ahiong the remarkable astronomical events of the last twelve months, it had added a new planet to our list; adding. " it has done more-it has given us the probable prospect of the discovery of another. We see it as Columbus saw America from the shores of Spain. Its movements have been felt, trembling along the far-reaching line of our analysis, with a certainty hardly inferior to that of ocular demonstration." In a letter to the Florning Chronicle he gives his reasons : On the 12th July, 181.2, the late illustrious astro noomer, Bessel, honoured me with a visit at my present residence. On the evening of that day, conversing on the great work of the:planetary re ductions undertaken by the Astronomer Royal then in progress, and since published--l. Bessel remarked that the motions of Uranus, as lie had satisfied himself by careful examination of the re corded observations, c...

¶Laa 3tuttcllegetn' . o SUPRE.ME COURT. -WEDNESDAY. SPECIAL SANCO SITTIN?. Before their Ilonors the three Judges. STUART V. pOULKES AND ANOTHER. This case, which had since the 24th of November last, been standing over for judgment, was an ap veal from the decision of Mr. Justice a'Beckett, the fate Primary Judge in Equity, pronounced on the 3rd of December, 1845. The learned judge had decreed that a certain sale and transfer by Lucy Foulkes, one of the defendants (then Lucy Ifamil ton), of a house and land purchased from her by the plaintiff in the year 1840, was fraudulent and void, and had directed that the deeds should be deli vered up to be cancelled. The facts of the case were these :--Mrs. Foulkes became possessed of the pro perty in question under the will of her former hus band, which was attested by one witness only. In the negociation which preceded the sale, no abstract of Mrs. Foulkes' title was given to the plaintiff,and although he received an extract from the will of ...

THE PUBLIC WORKS AND THE SMALL TENANT FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847

THE PUBLIC WORKS AND THE SMALL TENANT FARMERS. (From the Limerick Re.porter, Nov. 24.) As we have said in another article we this day publish, and have often said before, we consider the present system of Public Works not only fraught with absolute present mischief, but with imminent danger of an amount of future evil which it is ap palling to contemplate. But injurious as the Public Works are, they must be upheld and continued until a better system is substituted. Matters would be in finitely worse without them. In fact they are ne cessary evils that cannot be dispensed with at pre sent. And if it was to make holes and fill them up again, when human life is at stake and no other way of sustaining it, that must be done, absurd as it may appear. We fear the gentry and large farmers are not doing their duty to the country and them selves, by employing :the labourers in their fields. Wherever we turn our eye in the surrounding coun ties we see the fertile land deserted, and no farm wor...

We had an unusually crowded room from the beginning, not so much from a desire to purchase as from a general belief theattendance of buyers would be small The small Manufacturers being out of stock supI ported the prices of better Wool throughout, and the proportion of fine Wool being small, caused many flocks that were even defective in condition to resela very full prices. Low and bad-conditioned Wool, as the Sales advanced, improved in demand, and these also may be quoted at former rates. Lambs' Wool hardly supported last Sales' prkicei.

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 3 April 1847

EDUCATIO N. THERE is no subject ofsuch vast importance to the well-being of society as the diffusion of sound knowledge amongst the people; and perhaps there is none so generally misunderstood even in the 'present day as t?hat of Education. The various nostrums which have been prescribed by all sorts of !literary quacks, under the name of " nan ;tional: education," have been repeated so 'frequently and in-such a variety of shapes, that the public have almost become sickened at the very idea of its discussion; but ne vertheless this satiety in the public mind 'must not deter the journalist from again and again bringing the matter under notice, and forcing it upon the attention of the Le gislature and the public. In this colony the .question of education must of necessity speedily be made the sub ject of discussion. "Inthe comingsession of the Legislative Council it will no doubt occupy a conspicuous position; and 'it is well therefore that all men's minds both Legislators and constit...
