HORRIBLE AND PREMEDITATED MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 September 1850

HORRIBLE AND PREMEDl 1 Ai ED MURDER. An inquest was held yesterday at the Blue Bell Erskine-street, on the body of Catherine Burn, who resided at Margaret-place, Kent-street, and was stabbed with a knife on Friday, the 6th instant, from the effects of which she died, by a man named James Whelan, a labourer, about 35 years of age.

THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION AND ITS ADJUNCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 September 1850

THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION AND ITS; ADJUNCTS. The people of the colony- of New South Wale3 have done well. They have uproused themselves to the sum mons of their own consciences and better feelings— they have humbled themselves,., and cast down th& idols of selfishness and apathy which they had. set up — and in a more active worship of the good and the true — they have - stretched forth their. hand to stay the plague with which they are threatened: Throughout this- broad land — demoralised as it has been — uneducated and unenlightened asit assuredly is, , a-- solitary voice has gone forth penetrating its forests,., reverberating, over its plains ; exclaiming as it wandered ' we will not stretch out the; right hand of fellowship to crime.' Through the city. and through- the wilderness — in the farm, yard and the sheep walk— that solitary voice hath spoken — guilty, fallen, degraded, we may be ? — but toe will not stretch out the hand of fellowships to crin.e.

THE GREAT ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 September 1850

THE GREAT ANTI-TRANSPOftTATlON MEETING. The real friends of the colony-^-both as to its moral, social, and political welfare— have reason to rejoice at the powerful demonstration made on Monday last in the old Barrack Square, This immense meeting was. con ducted in the most orderly manner. When thinking men are determined to achieve any great object, that in ' tention is best manifested by their dispassionate, calm- — yet unconquerable firmness of purpose ; and such was the case with the masses assembled on the above occca sion to record their unalterable resolution in the face of Heaven and before the I3»itish Empire — That this fair lunu OJ M/QSlprn ja.ui-urai-iu} vr uicy ?fjuioiun uwi vvj , shall never again be degraded iuto the condition of a Penal Colony, It will require a great over-stretch of fastidiousness to assert that this meeting was not respect able in every sense of the word, as every class in society and every liberal profession in t;he state had its ample share of re...

COLONIAL DISTILATION AGAIN! [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 September 1850

COLONIAL DISTILATION AGAIN! We had hoped that with the abortive attempts of Mr.. Martin all efforts to promote the interests of the Colonial' Distiller at the expence of National interests and Na tional morality would have ceased, at least for the present session. But in this we were mistaken. Mr. Wentworth having declared himself an opponent of free trade doctrines has thought himself bound, it would seem, to substantiate that declaration by asking the Council to pass a Protectionist measure. It was thought, in all probability, by the Protectionist junta that the leader might succeed in doing that which the ambitious, but feeble, disciple had failed to accomplish. In this , they were Jbappily mistaken. The defeat of this at tempt was as complete as the defeat of those which pre ceded it. Mr, Wentworth's proposal, which was rejected by the Legislative Council on Friday last, was to take one shil ling per gallon- from the duties at present imposed upon spirits distilled in the colony...

THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY. BIGOTRY—INTOLERANCE—NARROWMINDEDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 September 1850

THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY. BIGOTRY — INTOLERANCE — NARROWMINDEDNESS. How shall we characterise the spirit that has lately 'been exhibiting its workings amongst us ? Can any one ! 'believe that a tender care for the consciences of clergy ! men and the religious welfare of their flocks was the i sole suggester of the Disqualification Bill ? Or that a \ genuine love of peace was so anxious to exclude Ecclesi \ astics from all. direction in the educational} as well as in | the political world ? We desire to be very credulous ; uiaeea aDouc: anyimng. gooa. x-ut really tnis is too much. No miracle in the material order of things ( was ever half so startliBg and beset with difficulties as would that moral wonder be. We are grieved to be compelled to suggest another ' mot d'enigme.' It is harsh and otherwise unpleasant, but here it is: — u May the last Kin,? be throttled with the guts of the last Priest.' We give this in downright honest Saxon, because its 'red colour' will be better seen th...

A WEED FROM THE POPE'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

A WEED FROM THE POPE'S GARDEN. | {From the Tablet.) Swift's saying about perverts from the Church to Pro testantism has become a proverb, and year after year ever since it was uttered, it has been amusingly verified bv the event. Dr. Achilli is one- of the latest weeds thrown over the Pope's garden-wall ; but picked up by the- '-Madge 'Wildfire' of the Rotundoand Exeter Hall, he makes a very pretty wreath for the head of that fan tnciic offshoot of Protestantism, as the,.crazy creature 'affronts the day-light' flaunting through the open streets, or displaying herself at other places of public resort. Poor Achilli is not worth' many words,. He and Sir Culling are just fitted to one another— the dupe and the deceiver making a very pretty pair. He is, no doubt, a great catch to the Italian Evangelisation Society— a useful instrument for swelling the collections of that por tentous humbug; but beyond this he has no sort of | meaning or importance whatever. For the present week we may sa...
