BRITISH OPINION UPON AGRARIAN OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

BRITISH OPINION UPON AGRARIAN OUTRAGE. I (From the Times of June. ) I A murder committed in England is evidence only! lof individual depravity — exciting mere horropini Jthe minds of the public as they read the details ofl [the crime. But, in Ireland, murder is but too often 1 [a proof of some great social disease — of some ter- J [rible and wide-spread mischief, which is under-f [mining1 the strength of society itself— portending? f anarchy is inevitably attended. | I The course of Mr. Mauleverer's life had! plainly deadened all his sympathy with any person! jwho came to him in the character of a tenant. I jWith respect to them a stern inflexible necessity — \ 'the necessity of furnishing so much rent to his em- j ployer — checked, subdued, and, at length, eradi-i eated all human sympathy ; and that which, be- j icause it might do good to a poor afflicted tenant, he j with a ' malediction' refused her, he flung with] [reckless indifference into the hands of the hotel] .keeper, M'Do...

DEATH OF DR. SINNOTT OF WEXFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 10 October 1850

DEATH OF DR. SlkNOTt Otf WEXFORD. (From the Waterford News, B^Lst May.) With feelings of the most sincere regret ive have to announce the demise of the Very Rev. Dr. Sinnott, which took place on Mon day, at St. Peter's College, Wexford. It may be in the recollection of many of our readers that on the elevation of Dr. Murphy to the episcopacy of Ferns Dr. Sinriott was appointed to the pastoral cnarge oi me iowu of Wexford. For 19 years Dr. Siunott filled the important office of president of St. ?Peter's College, during which period we had, fi»r some time, the pleasure and the honour .of his acquaintance. For his piety, his learning, his urbanity, his good nature, the deceased reverend gentleman was beloved by /all, both in and out of college. As for' his patriotism, we believe there seldom existed a purer spirit or a, more single-minded man — always anxious for the welfare of his ieUow man and of his native country, totally re ; gardless of personal considerations. 1 Often w( re we c...

OIUUINAL CORRESPONDENCE. CATHOLIC CHURCH, MORETON BAY. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. J gentlemen,— -It appears our willing community will not confine their zeal merely to the building of our beautiful Church, they rival each ojher now in orna menting it. To add to the .ornaments that are in course of erection, they are about getting an organ. A am told one is to be purchased in Sydney for it. A very respectable and efficient choir sings in the Church— this choir from its organization has heen trained under the mastership of W. A. Dun. can, Esq,, whose musical attainments are of a very respectable order; and it cannot be denied, that its present performance reflects great credit upon Jum : the choir up to the present having the benefit only of very imperfect musical instrument?. The two Catholic schools attached to this Church are well attended, upwards of eighty children in one, and about thirty in the other ; the cleanliness and order I have observed in these schools de...

PRIVILEGES OF THE BAR. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 October 1850

PRIVILEGES OE THE BAR. We have hacP occasion to contend for the maintenance of the distinctionbetween Bar- risters and Attorneys. Upon the same principle we consider it necessary that the privileges of Barristers should be secured to them. These privileges, in fact,. are not for the advantage or protection of the Barrister but for those of the client, and are conse quently necessary to the administration of justice. But the privileges of the -advocate re quired no extension. Even at present they are wide enough to become oppressive and unjust in the hands of some members of the legal profession, who do not know how to limit the exercise of their powers to the necessity which may exist for such an exer cise. In the performance of their profes sional duties, Barristers are frequently carried away, by excess of zeal for their clients, to advance arguments, and to put forward assumptions, which in their cooler moments they would reject as utterly false and unfounded. It is the duty of t...

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ON TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 October 1850

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ON TRANSPORTATION. Now that the dangers which seriously threatened the peace and tranquility of the colony have been happily averted, by the settlement of this question, the public mind will be better able to appreciate the magni tude of the impending evil, and to set a due value on the services of those honorable gen tlemen, who, in their place in Council, so nobly fought the battle of their Country's Freedom. If any individual member was better able than another, from his peculiar office and position, to form a sound and cor-, rect judgment on the great question under debate, it must be the gentleman, who for the long period, of eighteen years, was at the head of that responsible department of the public service, the prosecution of all offences committed in New South Wales during that number of years. And there appears to be but one opinion entertained by every member of the community — no matter of what class, creed, or country, regarding the unflinching inte...

(To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 October 1850

{To the Editors uf ihe hieemun's Journal.) Gentlemen, — I noticed in one of those endless epistles of the rev. representative for Sydney, and published a few days -ago in the Herald, the fol lowing strange observation— 'the right divine of kings to govern wrong.' As you occasionally un dertake to enlighten us about the ' rights' of Freemen, could you give us any information about the right divine of kings 9 As for my part I know nothing about such right, and if there be any such thing, I tell you it will be no easy matter to convince me that anybody, whether1 king or empe ror, has a right, either lmman or ' divine,' to do wrong, much less to govern wrong. In fact the notion of such ' a right' appears to me to be a piece of complete humbug, if I may use such a term. Pray tell us something about^this beautiful 'right' and you will oblige A WORKING MAN. Sydney, 15th October, 1850. [We beg to inform 'A Working Man,' that much has been written about the divine right of kings. But as this...

THE APPROACHING MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 October 1850

THE APPROACHING MUNICIPAL ELECTION. After an existence of nearly eight years, during which it has been presided over by eight different gentlemen, who, whatever might be the standard of their ability, have at all events displayed sufficient zeal, the Corporation Act of the City of Sydney has i been decided to work inefficiently, and has consequently been submitted to the Legisla- , ture for revision. The result has been, not an amendment of the former act but two lengthy new ones— the one incorporating the city and giving general powers of Local Government to the City Council ; the other, an act providing for the Sewerage of the City. As these Acts are to come into opera tion on the first of next month, it may net be unwise to cast our eyes on the past, and trace the causes to which the iailure in the working of the late act is attributable. There, has prevailed in the city of Sydney during the, greater portion of this period, a vague feoliog— half of dissatisfaction and half of con...

THE IRISH IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 17 October 1850

THE IRISH IN ENGLAND. /From the Waterford News. ) In Liverpool there are at present as many as one hundred thousand Irish by birth, and that one-half of the population, or, in other words, double the above number are Irish by birth or blood. As many are stated to be found in Manchester, who are Irish themselves or the children of Irish j and the same is said of Glasgow, containing a population of four hundred thousand souls. It is calculated that there are twice as many Irishmen in London as are in our own Irish metropolis itself. We see from this how largely Irish labour contributes to the wealth and influence of those places — would to Heaven we could see some of that labour and enterprise employed in adding to the prosperity and wealth of their own unfortu nate country.

He possesses, be sides, a paramount claim to' have a voice in Councils of that land, for whose rights and Freedom be has so nobly, so manfully, and so successfully contended. It is true that Mr. R.
