This demon act is ascribed to a certain person, well known, but from want of legal evidence he is safe from accusation ; nor dare we more closely allude to the circumistance under the. system which obtains in this town by which the perpetrator of any villainy is secure from punishment, so long as le keeps beyond the re...

CELESTIAL PHENOMENON. To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 12 September 1846

CELESTI L PHENOMENON. To the Editor of the Malt land Mercury.'.. Sta,-The silence of your scientific correspondent of Newcastle,. leads me to the conclusion that he must have been ." nodding at his post" on Tuesday night last, and at an early hour too I Although but little of the philosopher myself, it gives me pleasure to present the gentleman referred to, and others, with this simple record of the appearances which presented themselves on the night in question. From 10 to about 1 o'clock, there was (notwith standing the influence of the moon) a most brilliant display of Aurora Australls !-a phenomenon not very frequently witnessed in this part of the wor!d. During a residence of nearly seven. years in New South Wales, I have only witnessed it twice; but on none of those occasions were the gigantic stripes so long, so distinctly vivid, nor so thoroughly characteristic as on the preesent occasion. When my attention was first attracted to the ' lights"' they occupied the western sky-...

THE WOOD TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 12 September 1846

TIlE WOOD TRADE. (From the Colonial Gazette.) It is known that mahogany, and various oilher descriptions-of wood used for the purpose of making furniture, were, by the act passed in the last session of Parliament, made free of duty ; and It being the intention of the Government that all wobds which should be intended for such, and could not be ap proliriated to any other purpose, should also be ad mnitted free of duty on importation into this country, the indulgence has since been extended to several other descriptions of wood than those specifically mentioned in the statute, and a further intimation given that the same privilege would be extended to all other descriptions of wood which were and should subsequently be imported for making furniture of every kind. The consequence has been, that the deliveries of woods of the nature alluded to lavo been of an extraordinarily extensive nature, and if. .the numerous fresh importations of mahogany, co dar, and other woods, did' not ii sbo...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 12 September 1846

IRELAN D.. We are indebted 'to the Mailland Mniercury of Wednesday last, for the following fear ful account of the state of things in Ire .lund, which that journal has extracted from a Liverpool Albion, of April 18 : FEARFUL SPREAD OF FAMINE IN IRELAND. The state of Ireland is fearful. The hardy and hardened assertions of the Protectionists, that there was no scarcity in Ireland-no alarm to be appre hended from the potato pestilence--have been falsi fied in a way which must now wring thi hearts of those who, for base political purposes, have pre vented the government' from making adequate provision in time againt a great national calamity. Government itself is not exempt from blame; they had warning; they knew what was coming; they had taken credit to themselves for the fulness of their information; yet a people, maddened by. hunger, ask for bread, and there is none provided for them ! The. famine seems to be universal: it extends from one extremity of the land to the other-rages 'I...

LETTERS FROM LONDON. London, March 19th. SOME CRUMBS ABOUT DUNS SCOTUS, PICKED UP IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 12 September 1846

LETTERS FROM LONDON. (From the Nation.) London, March 19th. SOME CRUMBS ABOUT DUNS SCOTUS, PICKED UP IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM. Having between my fingers, some days ago, the Catalogue of the British Museum, the first volume in S, I turned over the leaves in search of the word " Scotia"—the Celtic name of Ireland, and that by which it was generally called in books until the period of the revival of letters, (tile 16th century.) when the Latinised names, Hibernia and Ireland, used by the ancient authors of Rome, superseded it with "the foreign, and afterwards with our, native, writers. On finding the word, I continued my search through Scotus (Erigena), Scotus (Marianus) and one or two others so styled, until I came to the name of Johannes Duns Scotus, where I made a full pause, determined to form forthwith an ac- quaintance with that illustrious author of the 14th century, so well known to book men as the rival of Saint Thomas Aquinas and the " subtle doctor" of the schools. After some t...

THE "AUSTRALIAN" AND SIR GEORGE GIPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 16 September 1846

THE " AUSTRALIAN" AND SIR GEORGE GIPPS. IN taking notice of a critique of our con temporary, the Australian, we have only to state that the imputation of any change of opinion on our part, as to the merits of Sir George Gipps, is notoriously unjust. Since the resignation and departure of his Fxcel lency, we have been called upon to defend his administration, from reproach, and to extol his character with more fervor than at any previous period of our editorial career. The . mistake of our contemporary is obvious, also, in imagining that we alluded to District Councils, when stating that magistrates were created by Sir George in consequence of his adhesion to the principles of self government in Municipal Corpora tions. We still can discern no other exist ing cause in the elevation, of our Aldermen .to the Bench. . iis Excellency, certainly did not announce brfore hand that such was .his resolve, and, therefbre, again the Austra lianis in error, ifi stating that the Governor .intende...
