ECCLESIASTICAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 27 June 1850

ECCLESIASTICAL INTELLIGENCE. The Archbishop left Sydney on the 24th ult., accompanied by the Very Rev. Dr. Gregory, V. G., to make a visitation of the southern districts of the Diocese. His Grace proceeded in his carriage as far as l.ivfrpool, from which he continued his journey on horseback through Campbelltown, Appin, to Wollongong, where-he remained some days to give spiritual exercises and administer the sacrament nf cdnfirmation. From Wollongonff he proceeded to Dapto, Kiama, Jamberoo, Shoalhaven; Tareera, and Ulladulla, holding stations and administering the sacraments to the faithful in these localities. From letters received from his Grace this week, dated Ulladulla, we are led to expect he is now at Broulee, and that in the course of another week he will reach Twofold Bay, which will probably be the terminus of his progress along the coast. Our readers will be happy to learn that our revered Prelate, as well as his Vicar-General, were in good health at the time of the date ...

PROPOSED BOUNTY ON DISTILLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 27 June 1850

PROPOSED BOUNTY ON DISTILLATION. Among the Bills now before the Legislative Council, are two of very different merit, although both the pro duction of one member — Mr. Jam.es_JIartin. The ob ject of the first is to prevent the adulteration of malt liquors. That of the second is to. abolish all the duties . upon spirits distilled in the colony from grapes or grain of colonial growth. . .. The first of these Bills is a good one. It is well known that many sudden deaths have been occasioned by the use of adulterated malt liquors produced in the -????( Colony; and incalculable mischief has arisen from the same cause, to which public attention has not so forcibly been called. It is as much the duty of the .Legislature to prevent this reckless pursuit of gain at the hazard of human life, as to interdict any other species of poisoning. ' The second Bill is bad morally and politically. It is niorally bad because its effect would be to encourage the production of a cheap and inferior kind of...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 27 June 1850

IRELAND; ' e.' Never was a land so favoured by nature in so deplorable a state as this ill-governed country. It has been of late   years, nay, even for centuries, a spectacle to the world, to men and to angels. The famine and pestilence that recently swept over the island and hurried thousands, if not millions, of its people to a premature grave, have excited the sympathies and called forth the generous aid of the humane of every creed and class throughout the civilized world To those who are only acquainted with Ireland by reading of her unprecedented misery,   ; and are but superficially conversant with ' hes—liis-tary | -and long-continued misgovernment, the anomaly of an } entire population periodically reduced to starvation, on \ one of the most fertile soils-in Europe, is at once a i subject of wonder and perplexity. But to him who \ ' studies attentively Irish history, and examines into the I working of bad laws made and fashioned by the caprice \ an...

FRIDAY 30th JUNE, THH QUEEN'S PLATE. Mr. Allen presented a petition from ten residents of the County of Cumberland, praying the house not to sanction the application for a Queen's Plate as a prize for racing, as it would-be an unjust appropriation of the public funds, and would afford encouragement to the immorality which was attendant on race meetings, read and received.

CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURr.—MoNDAY, Before His Honor, Sir Alfred Stephen,- Chief Justice. BIGAMY. William Parrott was indicted for having intermarried with one Anne Martin, his first wife being then alive. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, but recommended the prisoner to mercy on ac count of his good character for honesty and industry. Sentence was deterred until the August sittings of the Court. The jury in returning their verdict attached to it an expression of their belief that one of the prisoners daughters, a young woman of twenty-two years of age, had not adhered to the truth. His Honor concurred in the opinion of the jury, and for her gross prevarication of evidence he found her guilty qf contempt of oourt, and as a punishment for this ottence, he committed her to the custody of the Sheriff, to be imprisoned for the space of six months.

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 4 July 1850

CALIFORNIA. We have been favored with the perusal of a letter from this Land of Mines and Misery, written by an individual (who once held a respectable employment under Govern ment in this Colony) to his wife in Sydney, from which we make a few extracts. 'We,' he says, 'hail a long1 passage of eighteen weeks, and arrived here in the early part of the rainy season. There are only one or two days in a week that a man can work, even if he gets it. It takes all I can earn in that time to buy provisions, they being, so very dear. The Americans will not look at any goods of British manufacture. A house such as vdu occupy in Sydney would rent here for £60 per month. Wages within the last month have fallen very much. I have £1 per day when at work, and should 1 fall in with a constant job I will not go to the nr.ines for this season. ' There are now thousands here out of employment, and many in a state of starvation, but the mining season is coming, and they may be able to do something. '? ...

THE AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY. How is this problem to.be solved ? The time seems ? arrived when a solution is necessary, and, as all know, efforts have been made to .urge the existing %islatiye body to a decision. We have no wish to pry into the motives that actuate authors or plans for obtaining great national objects. It is to be assumed, whilst such assumption is riot too grossly contradicted, that the ostensible qualifications of disinterestedness and patriotism do really exist. Besides, all seem disposed to address themselves to the question, andeven those who do not think the colony yet ripe for an University, have formed, or are forming, their opinions as to the plan on which it should be organized. We are glad to witness the marks of general anxiety about the subject, not only for its in trinsic worthiness, but that we may disclaim the reputa tion thaTthas been fastened upon us as a colony, of being engrossed in the pursuit ef material interests.
