SUMMARY OF GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

SUMMARY OF GENERAL NEWS. A new machine called the 'Fire Annihilator,' for the more || effective extinguishing of fires, has been invented by a Mr. Phillips, 1 who has successfully shown, by experiments at the Gas Works, If Vauxhall. that it is superior to water for such purpose. The agent; W, by which this desirable effect is produced is a composition of gas and. ' El vapour. v . ? . ? i Mr. Guntler, head of the locomotive department. Vienna, has i invented an engine which draws a train weighing 2500 tons up an || inclined plain of from 40 to 50 degrees. I Arrangements are in contemplation for the appointment of i Lieutenant-General Sir William Gomm, K.C.B., to the situation of i Commander-in-chief at Bombay, wee Sir Willoughby Cotton, | G.C.B., who is expected to give up his command in the course of j the ensuing autumn. \ The total emigration from Liverpool for the year was the. extrar | ordinary number of 153,902 persons, of which 147,745 went to ] the United States. 1 The grand ...

DEBATE ON THE BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

DEBATE Ol\ THE BALLOT. The debate and division on the Ballot show unmis takeable signs of progress. The case of its advocates has been so thorougly made out, and the necessity of its protection to the poor voter so completely demonstrated, that the parties who fear it, are driven to their wits' end for argument to justify their opposition. When almost every one of them has an uneasy consciousness that undue influence is exerted over his own constituency, and that the protection of secret voting would be very likely to affect his parliamentary position, what can we expect but a blundering attempt to prove that the Ballot would not prevent the intimidation and corruption, whose exis tence they have not the effrontery to deny ? They do not believe, forsooth, that its adoption would be effective ! Such was the solitary argument of Sir George Grey. He had no particular objection to it, but questioned its efneacy ! Then, if you admit the evil, Sir George ; if your own election experience ...

THE CATHOLIC SCHOOL AT RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

========= i THE CATHOLIC SCHOOL AT RAYMOND I TERR-ACE. We have received a letter signed by ei'gUteen Catho lics, heads of families at this- place,- stating: thafc' | forty-five children are attending the Catholic School tbere, and some eight or ten going to schools where they cannot receive any- instruction in the tenets of the Catholic Church — and complaining of the injustice they J sufier in not getting any public aid towards the support I of their school, and also insinuating that it is-'owiog to- 1 the neijhct of the Catholic Clergy that they- do not re- 1 ceive Government aid; as well as others for education. 1 We neartily sympathise witn tnose good people lor | being injustly deprived of any portion of the sum voted' I for public education. But we must. correct a serious 1 error under which these individuals labour in com- 1 plaining that their clergy are the cause of not removing i the grievance under which they suffer. It is quite the i reverse. The clergy have by ' petitio...

Ceclesiastical Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

®ttlz&i&$tit&l Intelligent*. ' Thr Return of his Holiness the Pope to Rome. — The '-Debata' of Paris says, that the reception of bis Holiness at Homo waa marked by a triumph more dignified, and bearing more the expression of principle than that which testified to his first popu larity. The popular cries looked less to the man. and more to his great office. Before you heard loud shouts of ?' Viva Pio Nono.' hut now more frequently ?' Viva il Papa,' ?? Viva il Sante Padre.' The improved attitude of the Fiench soldiers is reported to have struck and gratified his Holiness. He has taken many occasions of exhibiting his grateful confidence in them. He visited the hospital in which the wounded French soldiers were lying, and addressed to them words of kind and welcome svmnathv and encouragement, observing that the guards inside the palace were Swiss and Roman, and that the French soldiers were on duty outside only, he desired that the arrangement should be changed,...

THE "CONTEMPT" QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

THE 'CONTEMPT' QUESTION. ? Strange times these we live in. '* Revolutions' are mak ing inroads not only on states and kingdoms, but even on the domain of the English language, shaking the ^Dictionary' 'to its foundation.. Thus, for instance, iu our school-boy days, if we were asked the meaning of the phrase ' an honorable man,' we should say, that accord ing to the ' Dictionary,' it meant one who paid his debts, was faithful to his word, and fulfilled the duties of his state in life ; but in the present 'revolution' of words it may mean one who contrives some-how or other to get elected to a seat in a Legislative Assembly, and no matter what he might have been outside the house, the moment he enters, he is dubbed an ' honorable member.' And should you only hint at what you think of this honorable member you are liable to be indicted on the serious charge of ' Contempt,' an offence of which you never dreamt. Another instance of the 'Dictionary revolution,' is, that should you happen ...

IRELAND. THE FIRST PASTORAL OF THJ3 NEW PRIMATE. Our readers will we trust be edified and instructed, as we have been, by the perusal of the following extracts from Dr. Cullen's dignified and Apostolic 'Letter,' addressed to his clergy and people on the day of his con servation to the Primatical See of Ireland : — ' Paul, by the grace of God, and by favour of the Apostolic See, Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of all Ireland, to the Catholic Clery and laity of the Arch .' '« Grace be to the Brethren, and charity with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.' — (Ephesus. vi., 23.) In these words of the Apostle, I hasten, Very Rev. and Venerable Brethren,, to greet you this day, on which I have received the plenitude of the Priesthood^ and have been consecrated your Bishop. My first thoughts and most affectionate wishes, on this solemn occasion, are turned to you, with whom Divine Provi dence haa called me to cultivate the mystic vineyard of the Lord.

SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

SOCIALISM. Those who belong to a rational school of politics, can afford to smile at the doctrine of socialism, and treat it as a trick of the 'strong imagination ;' but when the men of Paris, and, thousands in this country, give warm countenance to the delusion, it is time to strip it of its tawdry finery, and expose iis nakedness to the derision and scorn of every honest man. We are a practical people, and reason practically ; therefore we may be permitted to ask the Socialist trio whom the Parisians have honored with their suffrages whether the six mil lions of landed proprietors of France are prepared to surrender their estates to be cultivated for the common good ? whether the tradesman, and the middle classes generally, would object to a transference of their profits to the state purse? and whether the labourers — the sinews and strength of their country — would understand and adhere to a system which compelled the industrious man to toil for the lazy one, and the honest for t...

FINIS HIBERNI[?]E. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 22 August 1850

FINIS HIBERNL3E. Some faint voices, we perceive, are raised here and there, demanding a national agitation against the destruc tion of the Irish Court. But the event is not of the class that causes the thunder of popular indignation to fulminate. The English Minister may kick down the tlirone of the Viceroy with a boot as relentless as ever trod, from beneath a bloody blouse of St. Antoine, on the throne of the Tuileries, and no one in Ireland will say him nay.
