WHAT HAVE CLERGYMEN TO DO WITH POLITICS? (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

WHAT HAVE CLERGYMEN TO DO WITHH POLITICS ? ? ( To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. ) | Gentlemen, — We have heard the above question! frequently asked of late in our Legislative Council ;| I have heard it from the lips of good citizens in my I neighbourhood ; you have doubtless heard it inl yours. And the tones, in which the words have! been uttered, have been as, various, as the classes of I men by whom they have been pronounced. Some! have asked with an evidently conscientious desire! to make up their minds on the subject ; some have! asked with a sneer ; some, merely repeating al cuckoo cry which they have caught from the morel decided or the more malicious. In the mouths off the sneerers it is simply so much slang, and is] about as respectable in style and sense as ' doesl your mother know you're out ?' and other like de-l Iicacies. With the cuckoos, it is pure cant, in thel proper sense of the word, and ranks with much of 1 the prevailing talk about ' progress of the human...

(To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

'( To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) Gentlemen,— In a former correspondence' I ex pressed a promise to notice the several objections advanced by the working classes against coming to labour in the Northern Districts of New South,, Wales. This promise, with your permission, I shall attempt to fulfil. ..?;.. Whilst I am ready to admit, there exists much cause for complaint in these districts, I must with equal justice say, that the working man can enjoy more advantages perhaps than he could in several other parts of the colony. Some of these advan1 tages I will notice in the sequel. Upon asking a labourer in Sydney, who was in search of employ ment and not readily obtaining, it, why he did not proceed to Moreton Bay and the Darling Downs, and there he would be sure tomeet with a speedy en gagement and good wages, his curt reply will be invariably somewhat to the following effect: — ' That he is not certain he shall ever receive that wages ; that the settlers there are generall...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the DUBLIN Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

; ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE^ \ (To the Editor of the Dublin .Freeman's Journal. j\ Sir.— Yoxl will save me and many respected; friends in Ireland much time, expended in unne-' pessary and useless correspondence, by inserting in , your valuable Journal the few followfrig remarks. I have received from time to time letters from Ireland, enquiring about parties in New South Wales, and also about certain properties which they were supposed to possess, of which I have not the slightest knowledge. It appears that some prisoners having returned to Ireland from this colony make it a point to engratiate themselves with persons at home, some of whose friends may be in New South Wales, and give 'them nattering accounts of properties pretended to be accumulated by them in this colony, and make reference to ' me': as to one possessing all the necessary information on the subject. One individual, calling him self ' George Wilson,' second mate of a ship, has been the means of' despatching some twenty...

THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. One of the distinguishing marks by which political ignorance and political narrow mindedness, is always descridable, is the in capacity to understand and appreciate the charges which experience has taught us to make in the application of the doctrines of political economy. There can be no doubt that political wis dom must be acquired in the field of poli tical action, and whatever may be the talent, or the acquirement of men — they require an apprenticeship in political business be fore they can become useful, in the prac tical legislation of a state. It is the want of political experience which shows itself most strangely in our Legislative Council, and which is now be coming daily more visible. While political legislature was a thing with which he had nothing to do, it was easy for the Wentworth of the former day to affect the growing spirit and enlightenment of the time. To proclaim to the world that he was identified with those feelings and principles w...

THE DEBATE ON THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

THE DBBATK ON THIS TRANSPOR TATION QUESTION. This is a- gigantic affair. From whatever point of view — front, rear, or centre, that we contemplate this Legislative -Campaign, we cannot help exclaiming, lehold a maqni Jicent exhibition of Senatorial powers, of moral c'ombqt and argumentative acumen! The full 'Report' of this great Australian Debate will make the Thunderer of Printing House Square open wide his eyes to stare with some degree of astonishment at this remarkable specimen of Colonial Legislative proceedings. The Times will be somewhat startled at the idea of an Embryo Parlia ment carrying on a debate at the '^Anti- podes' for three full successive days', and filling eighty-seven closely printed Columns of the Sydney Morning Herald with its proceedings. Yet such is. the fact, and right glad we are of it.

THE DEATH OF A PATRIOT.. ( From the Nation: )- Most pamtul and unexpected news- nas ju»u reached us from the South. One of the most gifted, of the young patriot priests who- came into public life at the Secession, and to sustain the struggling side, has been laid in his grave. The name of- the Rev. Nicholas Coahlan, of Waterford. is familiar to our readers. They have read it after many a play ful, sarcastic letter, covering deep sense and wide experience. In his own district he was known by the exercise of all the virtues of his ministry, and by his deep, passionate patriotism. In early life, engaged on the Irish mission,, and meeting with a brave spirit all its arduous toils, his constitution sunk under his labours ; and he was obligedto seek abroad for strength to beat back the first inroads of consumption. He travelled much.. He read the world and men, and though he made many friend* in foreign countries, who wished to retain him with them for his worth and the charm of his socie...
