WILLIAM SMITH O'BRIEN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 August 1850

WILLIAM SMITH O'BRIEN. The exciting news of this gentleman's 'supposed' escape from durance vile at Maria Island, spread like lightning on last Monday through the city. Everyone seemed rejoiced at the intelligence. All admit that he saeirficed everything dear to man, in endeavouring to re dress the wrongs of his country, and no one would wish to see him drag out a miserable existence at a Penal Settlement. The attempted escape however turns out to be a failure; many wished it had been otherwise.

THE AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 August 1850

THE AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY. The second peading of Mr. VYentworth's Bill on this, subject is proposed for to-morrow, and we suppose, that, in due course the third reading will take place, and some measure or other will be adopted, unless it shall be thought advisable to postpone action on this point also, until the New Constitution shall have assumed,,, amongst us, its ' local habitation* and its name.' We ourselves should be inclined to recommend postpone ment, still, as the promoters of the Bill now before the House are scarcely likely to forego the honor, or advan tage, or both together, which ni-iy accrue to them: from their agency,. it is just as well that every one interested in the subject (and who is not ?) should make up his mind. on the details of the plan,, so that k may conie into operation in a shape calculated: to do, shall we say,, as much good, or as little harm, as, possible. All men are, we take it,. pretty well convinced by this time, that the 'godless scheme' will,...

DEMOCRACY—WHEN DANGEROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 29 August 1850

DEMOCRAC Yr-WIIEN' DANGEROUS; At the very sound of this word — a word big with the fatoof states and empires,, some nervous gentlemen, who would fain pass as great statesmen, feel an,, involuntary thrill of alarm, if not of horror, seize their whole frame and throw them into a fit of political frenzy. We bless our stars that our constitution has not been cast in such a delicate and sensitive mould. We heed not the smiles nor the frowns of the two sections of society who range themselves respectively under the Aristocratic and Democratic banners. We take a higher range when surveying the rights and privileges, the good or evil tendencies of these two political sections of the human, family. Our present object is not to excite the antagonistic feelings of Aristocrats or Democrats, bufc to endeavour to induce both to view each other with, a more favourable eye and to examine what may be found of a beneficial or dangerous tendency in their political principles, then to. select and. choo...

HANKERING FOR "CONVICT" LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 September 1850

-HANKERING FOR 'CONVICT' LABOUR. ' The shuffling and trickery of certain Members of the Legislative Council on the 'Revival of Transportation ' is shameful. It is really toobad to pretend to be seeh in-j once more for the expression of public opinion on this hateful subject. The great body of the colonists have already, spoken openly and aeterminately against -bring- ing back upon them and their posterity the social/moral, and political evils inseperable from a penal colony. Public patience is worn out, it can -no longer endure the agitation of this miserable question. We therefore ?entreat all who wish well to this their native or adopted country to take every means in their power to put this 'Question' to rest for ever, and to call on their 'Representatives ' in Council to give a final answer to the Home Government, that on no accountshall we ever consent to the landing of prisoners in New ? South Wales. Let all .honest men 'attend- the Meeting to be held this day at the. Royal Ho...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE REV DR. LANG. (To the Editors of ike Freeman's Journal.) Gentlemen, — Since the late election for the city the votes given by Irishmen and Catholics for Dr. Lang have been much spoken of as matters of astonishment. I have repeatedly heard men of dif ferent countries, creeds, and political opinions, say— 'There, he has been for upwards of a quarter of a century, the systematic calumniator of the religion and people of Ireland, without having retracted any of his manifold slanders— withont any promise or ap pearance of amendment, he is elected;'' then followed taunts to this effect, viz., the. Irishman or uattiouc wno assisteu in Bringing such a disgrace on the city has not the spirit of a spaniel, and de serves the appelations mentioned in the Doctor's ' Question of Question,' page 31.

PUSEYITE NOTIONS ABOUT CHARITY.— MISS SELLON AND LORD CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 September 1850

PUSEYITE NOTIONS ABOUT CHARITY.— MISS SELLON AND LORD CAMPBELL. (From the Tablet, April 20.) It will be remembered that the Anglicans founded at Plymouth an 'Orphans' Home,' in imitation of the Catholic Convents of Mercy; that Miss Sellon, the Superioress (or, as she rather designates herself, 'ye Mother Supr.'), acquired praises she justly deserved for a charitable life ; and that afterwards she was the subject of an inquiry held by the Bishop of Exeter in regard to ' Popish practices' she was accused of encouraging in tne nouse. vvnat who. ner explanations, ana ur. rnn pott's admiration for the Institute, Miss Sellon came off triumphantly, and the Protestant Convent of Mercy was tolerated, although a crucifix in the house had actually been ornamented with flowers. We- regretted at that time the line of excuse Miss Sellon adopted, no less than the vulgar persecution of which she was made the sub ject. In the case now before the public, we again have to lament the results of the fal...

Amid a dull world, its cares and its tears, Its moments of sunshine— its hours of tears— Oh I is it not sweet that the soul in a trance : . Through the viatals of faith, on her Heav'nmay glance ! I have gaz'd on the world— I've wander'd and strayed .,* ; Through its bright mazy circles of pomp and. parade : Yei it never, oh never ! such rapture bestow'd, As the scene I've just viewed in the temple of God. I stood near the altar — I gazed on the line Of the young ones awaiting, the Spirit Divine ; And I watched the emotions of nature and grace, Like bright apparitions, that rose in each face. Yet it was not fair cheeks with soft blushes o'erspread, Kind Nature's suffusion, her own tender red— ; It was not the smiles, which broke trem'lous and bright?
