Accident to the Mail Steamship Oneida. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 4 April 1857

Accident to'the Mail- Steamship , . ; -. r Oneida; 0 TVWe have Sydney papers to'-te 31st ult, from which weextractthe following important information relating, to the steamship Oneida :-After the fine passages made by all the steamers which up to the present time have reached Sydney, forming a portion of the European and Australian Royal Mail Steam Company's fleet, it is much to be regretted that we have at so early a period to chronicle a serious mis fortune which has occurred to the pioneer of the line -the Oneida. This is the more to be lamented as the events subsequent to the accident have rendered the calamity vexatious from the fact that the Simnl had left Kiing George's Sound just one day before the Oneida returned to that port, which rendered it neceosary for her to await the arrival of the Euro pean. The Simla learning no tidings of the Oneida at King George's Sound, and proceeding on her voyage without any knowledge of the accident, will leave a lengthened period open for ...

"Doom Goon.-On the afternoon of Monday last, the 30th'ult., the children of the Church of England Sunday Schools in this town, partook of an excellent entertainment, which was provided for them by the kindness and liberality of the superintendent of these schools, R. Probert, Esq., on the anniversary of the birthday of his only son. There was ah ample feast, lduring which large quantities of plum-cakes, grapes, apples, sweetmeats, &c., rapidly disappeared to the evident gratification of upwards of eighty happy boys and girls. 'After tea the children sang, and other wise enjoyed themselves till eight o'clock; and on parting heartily cheered their benefactor and his little son. -The teachers of these schools are thankful to M r.Z Probert for the encouragement he has'thus given both to themselves and the cause of Sabbatlh Schools generally.

The Williamstown CHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, April 4th. THE CONVICT EMEUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 4 April 1857

WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, April 4th.     THE CONVICT EMEUTE. THE human heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, we are told on the highest authority. If this be the normal con- dition of humanity how are the inmates of the Success and the President to be described. There are about one hundred and fifty indi- viduals, and we think it would be difficult to collect a similar number in whose hearts there existed as great an amount of deceit and desperate wickedness if the whole habitable globe was to be laid under contribution for the purpose. No children of misfortune are they, nor the victims of adverse circumstances, whom society should regard more in pity than anger, but bloodthirsty murdering scoundrels ; who if, they were placed at liberty to-morrow morning, would have their hands in our pockets and then gripe upon our throats be- fore twenty-four hours were over their heads; men who before they attained to the " bad   emine...

CHRONICLE. |WILLIAMSTO IWN, Saturday, April ll. NEXT week the business of the Legislature will be resumed, and the curiosity as to what Mr. O'Shanassy will do set at rest. Up till this time no scheme of policy has heen enun ciated by him, and the country has been left completely in the dark as to what his inten tions may be. That he will meet Parliament with but a limited array of auxiliaries is cer tain. There will be only four members of he Executive entitled to cross the bar of the House besides himself at most, and probably only three- but we thlink 4.- ' thathie wilIeWdtivbo-to carry on the Go vernment of the country, shorthanded though he be.

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 11 April 1857

FLOATING CHAPEL IN HoasON's BAY. The establishment of a Sailors' Mission, and in connection with it a Floating Chapel in HI-obson's Bay, is now accomplished. The Government have lent for six months a hulk for the purpose, and £500 has been subscribed towards the fitting-up of the vessel and the maintenance of a chaplain. The Government granted the loan of the hulk on condition that it was used for sailors of all denominations, meaning, we suppose, Catholics and Pro testants; but as the committee of manage ment are all Protestants, though of various sects, and as a Protestant chaplain is to be appointed, Roman Catholics will not, it would appear, participate in the benefits of the mis sion. As, however, the only aid received from the Government is the loan of the hulk, the Catholics will probably consider the desirability of establishing a mission of their own.-Ierald. Jon?

PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 11 April 1857

PROGRESS. Tu. i?atural progress of the works of man "is from rudeness to convenience, from con "rvenience to elegance, and from elegance to " nicety." So wrote the ponderous philo sopher of Bolt Court, and we find ample proof of the justice of the reflection, and a fit illustration of it in the history of this colony during the last five years. The time when we were obliged to content ourselves with the necessaries of life soon passed away; the conveniences were then brought within our reach in rapid succession; and those we have so long enjoyed that we have all but forgotten the time when we had to do without them; now we are rapidly accumulating about us the means and appliances of elegance and luxury. When the first wave of the great tide of immigration broke upon our shores, house accommodation was the want most severely felt, and the new-comers, thankful to obtain shelter of any description, had to bestow themselves in rude huts of boards or iron plates, and under roofs of bark...

THE POPULATION OF WILLIAMS- TOWN. WE have been favored with the following statement, compiled from the returns just made relative to the population, of Williams- town. As may be seen the number of the male sex is something in excess of that of the female; but this discrepancy may be ac- counted for by the large number of laborers employed on the railway, the patent slip, and other works. In those districts which are remote from the public works the sexes are nearly equalised, a circumstance which is of great importance when considered in a social point of view: District. Males.
