FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

FRIDAY. The Law of Dower Bill was read a second time. On proposing to print the petition presented by him against the Sydney University Bill, Mr. Allen said he should be content with the printing one petition against the above bill, signed by two thousand inhabitants of Sydney, with an abstract shewing the number of petitions which had been presented against this bill. Mr. Wentworth opposed the printing of. this petition ; it was a mere copy of that from Archbishop Polding and his clergy ; he had received an anonymous letter com plaining that the Archbishop had exerted his whole in signatures from the people as they passed out ; petitions at Parramatta had been got up in a similar manner. Mr. Nichols considered it would be belter to make an abstract showing the number of petitions, the place from whence they came, and the number of signatures. The Attorney-General contended that all petitions should be printed. He did not think it was decorous to rely on anonymous letters. Clergymen...

THE GREAT ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

?' , ' . THE GREAT ANTI-TRANSPORTATION . ' MEETING. Anxious to put on record the conclusive arguments against transportation, urged by the several speakers at . , this Meeting, we have published a Supplement to this day's Freeman, containing a condensed report of the speeches. It is important that our readers should study well the weight of these arguments, and impress them on the mind of their children, so that, if at any future period any attempt should be made towards1' the revival of the 'penal system' in this colony, the rising generation should understand well the nature of such a degrading and corrupting system. The people of Van Diemen's Land who are now groan ing under the insufferable burden of an ' even improved system' of prison discipline, are appealing in the most earnest fanner to the Home Government, to be relieved from this moral pestilence. Our afflicted neighbours are also calling upon us to aid them in putting a stop to the further importation of British convicts...

IRELAND. Dublin, Wednesday, May 8, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

IRELAND. Dublin, Wednesday, May 8, J850. A fearful ?act of sacrilege was done in this city on » Sunday last, by a demented wretch who stained God's i holy altar with the blood of two pious ministers, and ! caused indirectly the death of a respectable and amiable lady. The scene of the murderous outrage was the Car melite chapel, in VVhitefriar-Etreet — a street south of the j Liffey, and some short distance from the Castle. It was j between nine and ten o'clock, and what in Dublin is 'J considered the early Mass was being* celebrated j the % Rev. Mr. Colgan had just commenced the solem sacri j fice at the high altar, and at a side altar the Rev. Mr. | O'Rouke was also officiating ; when a young man, re 1 spectably attired, and carrying in his hand a short thick 1 down. There was nothing unusual in his demeanour to | attract attention ; but at the moment the Rev. Mr. Col J gan bowed his head at the Confiteor, he sprang up on to I the altar, and with a blow of his bludgeon, which echo...

QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE. Session after session, it appears, the country is to be dis gusted and insulted by the assumption on the part of .their representatives,' of privileges to which they have no right and iwbich it was never contemplated, they should possess^ If a member's qualification be disputed, it is a question of privilege. , If a newspaper question, the wisdom or purity of intention of a member, it is a question of privilege. We have at present a Select Committee on Privileges, and we have, haunting us as me, . write} the restless ghost of a bill on privileges, the still-born offspring -of the mental bewilderment of Mr. James Martin. ? ~ '? v?.?r? ??

THE SYDNEY UNIVERSITY AND THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

THE SYDNEY UNIVERSITY AND THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. We were sorry to'observe in yesterday's Herald a leading article written in a tone, that presents a. decided falling off from the firm spirit of conscientious opposition to the 'f irreligious college scheme' which we had believed our city would have the gratification to sec maintained in its leading journal. The writer totally mistakes the question. It is not, whether religion may not be taught by professors who happen to be Uuristians in a vJollege or University.; but, whether it will always be taugiit by ?those who are not Christians, and who are not excluded by any test whatever, nay, whether it is not certain that infidels will teach infidelitf and irresponsibility. The Rev. Mr. Dale/ and the Rev. Diabolus Gander, as Mr. Warner styles Dr. Lardner, may teach religion, as a superfluous luxury, but depend upon it, their efforts will be mainly wasted, if your university constitution admit such atheists asBroussais, or Laplace, or ...

fJ)\ THE BANKING: COMMITTEE. . ' As we sow, soshall we reap,' is an axiom of divine authority confirmed by every-day experience. 'We cannot gather grapes from thorns, nor figs from thistles' nor could any good fruit ripen from the seed cast on the iield of Legislation in the early period of the session by the careless hand of Mr. James Martin, in his speeches, aud his Bill on Banking. - A more lamentable exhibition of the miserably small calihre of our Senate in the matter of economic legisla tion, could never have been afforded, than has been dis played in the diseussions on -this matter of Banking;. The subject, so grave and important in all its bear ? ings, so profound in its intricacies, has been made the peg, on whioh schoolboy polititions have hung the jackets -of their senatorial wisdom. Housed as it were from a dream, by sundry articles and letters in the Sydney Morning Herald (an authority by the way of which Mr. James Martin, always speaks with ineffable contempt) — this p...

COTTON GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

CG.T.TON GROWING-. We trust that the efforts which -have Been made in the. Legislature for' the encouragement of cotton growing: will not be slighted. This branch of industry has been - sufficiently followed to prove that cotton, of the finest description can be raised in this colony. It is pretty ck'a'r, also, that'it maybe raised at 'a cost sufficiently small to render its culture profitable. -The demand for a/-much as we can raise is certain. All that remains is . to change the- hitherto experimental culture of. the cot-ou. P* plant into an extended cultivation of that plant for the , ' /! purposes of commerce. . ' ? y The Council has voted three premiums of £30, £20,: and £10, for the three best samples of cotton of not less ' :i * than ten pounds weight each. These premiums will, of *? ''' course, be competed for 'by the present growers. But; ' f there is no reason why every working man with a small ? * farm or a tolerably large garden at his disposal, should ; * .not also comp...

IN A BOTTLE OF WHISKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 September 1850

IN A BOTTLE OF WHISKEY. Here, only by a cork controlled, And slender walls of earthen mould,   In all the pomp of death, repose The seeds of many a bloody nose;   The chattering tongue, the horrid oath;   The fist, for fighting nothing loath;   The passions, which no words can tame, That burst, like sulphur, into flame;   That nose carbuncled; growing red   The bloated eye; the broken head;     The tree that bears the deadly fruit Of murder, maiming in dispute;   Assault, that innocence assails;       The images of gloomy jails;   The giddy thought, on mischief bent; The midnight hour in riot spent — All those within this bottle appear,     With Green of the "Hermitage" in the rear.     JOHNNY OLDCOVE. Teetotal Cottage, Sept. 18th, 1850.
