The Williamstomn CHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, January 3rd. PUBLIC WORKS AT WILLIAMSTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 3 January 1857

CHRONICLE.     WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday. January 3rd.     PUBLIC WORKS AT WILLIAMS- TOWN. THE Government works at Williamstown— namely, the Railway, the Patent Slip, the Battery, and the Piers— are now beginning to assume an imposing appearance. The pro-   gress which is being made in most of these   works from week to week is such as to give   us no reason whatever to complain of neglect, however much we may have felt disposed to   find fault in days gone by. We are told that the Battery will be completed in three months, or thereabouts; that the Patent Slip will be ready to receive ships in about nine months;   from this time, and that the Railway is ex- pected to be finished in about four months;   and as it is quite certain that a railway at Williamstown will be of little use with-   out piers, we are led to believe that the latter &amp...

[To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 January 1857

[To the Editor of tie WILIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] SIa,-After wading through an alarming numinber of American jokes and repetitions of what one sees every day in the Melbourne papers, I espied in your open column a letter signed J. G. Medland, certainly a most incon gruous production and smacking much of the same style as one signed Progress in your pre vious week's issue. In beginning thus, do not for one moment suppose that I intend taking up the,cudgels in defence of Mr. Hen derson, feeling fully satisfied that if thatgen .tleman thought it worth -his notice he could take his own' part and fight his own battles with infinite more courage and ability than your humble servant. But yet withal I can not help saying that the Rev. Mr. Medland in hitting at Mr.; Henderson in the circumlo cutory manner he has done has anything but raised himself in the eyes of the majority of the people of Williamstown, and must not lose this opportunity of saying that Mr. White, in his remarks on tlheletter ...

Original Correspondence. THE REV. SYDNEY SMITH. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 January 1857

Origiinal nrre5pondence. THE REV. SYDNEY SMITH. [To the Editor of the WrxLLAMSTOWn CHRONIzCLE.] 'Sir,-I should have hopled that the feeling inculcated by the old maxim, "De mortuis nil nisi bonum," would have saved the character of the deceased Sydney Smith from being made the subject of so gratuitous and uncalled for an attack as that made by a minister of the same church in your journal of Saturday last. Now, Sir, passing on from what is gene rally admitted as an axiom, that- "Noble spirits war not with the dead," and leaving altogether unnoticed the covert object of that letter, I regret much to find that any man should thus assail and condemn one of whom he admits he knew nothing till within the past week, when," he inquired and swas informed that Sydney Smith is regarded by many persons in the character described by your correspondent, 'Progress."' Are we to consider this hearsay judgment as influenced by that charity "which suffereth long and is kind ?"' Mr. Medland next asks,...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 January 1857

BOAT-RACE.--A rowing-match for £100 a-side, between two of the watermen of Wil liamstown, is announced to take place next Wednesday afternoon. The boats will run from the junction of the Saltwater'River and the Yarra to the Old Wharf at Williamstown. At half-past two o'clock, the steamer Vesta will leave the Sandridge railway pier for Williamstown, where she will receive the com petitors, and after conveying them to the start iig point, will accompany the match through out. A brass band is engaged for the occasion, and should the weather prove favorable, there is no.doubt but that the spectators will be agreeably entertained. Although this is the first boat-race of the season at Willliamstown, it is to be hoped that something upon a more extensive scale may speedily follow. The sumimer is now far advanced, and if there is any intention of getting up a regatta, it is high time to see about making the arrangements.

A WORD TO MR. WHITE. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 January 1857

A WORD TO MIR. WHITE. [To the Editor of the WsILLIAMrSTOW Cinnowticr.] Sit,-When the last nimber of your jour nal reached me, I might have expected to find in it some statement from Mr. Henderson, (if only a multitude of words,) in which an at tempt would be made to account for "Iwitless jokes," and statements not in accordance with the Bible, when lo !-a champion !-one White! ! If I mistake not, this is the same person that some time since discussed the State Aid question with a writer, named Wallace, and was by him most signally defeated and soundly drubbed. I thought Mr. White-was put hIors de combat ; but he has unsheathed his sword again. Before he strikes a blow, he asks Mr. Pro gress a question--" I should like to know what sort of pain you felt on reading the report of Mr. Henderson's speech at the late soiree?" Answer: The same sort of pain one always feels when errors are propounded, or when a person's conduct is not consistent with his character or profession. MIr. White ...

LATER ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 10 January 1857

LATER ENGLISH NEWS. By the arrival of the royal mail steamship Simla, from Southampton, we have twenty five days' later intelligence from England, bringing news up to the 12th of November. The following paragraphs contain the most im- portant items of English news, which we ex- tract from the letter of the London correspon- dent of the Argus : -   FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT AT THE SURREY   GARDENS. -A frightful accident occurred at the Surrey Gardens on the evening of Sunday, the 19th October, by which seven persons were killed and thirteen more or less injured. Mr. Spurgeon, although only about twenty three years of age, is the most popular   preacher of the present day; and his attrac- tiveness has been such that the largest halls in London have been found inadequate to accommodate the crowds who go to hear him. His own, chapel, situate in Park-street, Bo- rough, was enlarged, but his popularity in creasing, not to sufficient dimensions. Then Exeter ...

[ADVERTISEMENT,] THE REV. SIDNEY SMITH. [To the Editor of the WIrLLIA?tSTOW Cnnoicr .3 SI,--In reply to the letter of " Observer," I pass over his first remark as beneath my notice, and begin where he says "'A.B.C.' attacks Mr. Medland for disturbing the dead." Here, Sir, he mistakes me, for, happily, the dead are beyond the power of Mr. i. The meaning he should have gathered from my quotations is, that we ought not to assail those whom Death has rendered unable to defend themselves. He then sneers at " De mortuis," &e., a "hackneyed, heathen maxim, which if allowed-". Did anybody ever read anything so illogical and contradictory T He admits it to be a maxim, and yet he adds "IF al lowed." Let me remind him that a maxim is "a leading truth"-a sentiment, whose propriety is in disputable and universally "allowed." If, then, the expression were not evidently of this character, it would never have become a maxim, or borne to be "hackneyed" through centuries. Now for the word "he...

RUPTURE BETWEEN THE BRITISH AND CHINESE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 24 January 1857

RUPTURE BETWEEN THE BRITISH AND CHINESE. Byway of Adelaide, Hong Kong papers to the 10th of November have reached this port. The following are extracts : There has been a serious affair at Canton between the British and Chinese authorities, and Admiral Seymour has found it necessary, in order to bring the Chinese to reason, to bombard the town. The disagreement arose, in the first instance, out of the seizure by the Chinese of some seamen of the British lorcha Arrow, as detailed in the following extract of a communication from Mr. H. S. Parkes, her Britannic Majesty's officiating consul at Can ton, dated 21st October: " On the morning of the 8th inst., the Bri tish lorcha Arrow, when lying among the shipping anchored before the city, was boarded without any previous reference being made to the British Consul by a large force of Chinese officers and soldiers in uniform, who, in the face of the remonstrance of the master, an Englishman, seized, bound, and carried away twelve Chineseou...
