iU&i0£eUaue0ii0» Good Humour. — 'Young persons who are always innocently, cheerful and good humoured are very useful in' the world; they maintain peace and happiness, and spread a thankful temper amongst all who live around them. — Youth's Magazine.

The real object of education is to give children resources that will endure as long as life endures ; habits that will ameliorate, not destroy.; occupa tions that, will render sickness tolerable, solitude pleasant, age venerable, life more dignified and useful, and death less terrible.— Rev.

Her Majesty was returning from a visit to the, Duke of Cambridge, accompanied by three of the royal children and her lady in waiting.

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

BRISBANE.   ( To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal. ) Gentlemen,—I beg to call your attention to a     paragraph in a late number of the Moreton Bay Free Press,, which is to the following effect :—" To     those whose means are limited, the country in the county of Stanley, particularly that portion of it which extends in the direction of Cleveland Point, on the south side of the Brisbane ; also, Moghill Creek and other localities ; on the North side, con- tain tracts of very fertile land, admirably adapted for farms of from 100 to 500 acres each, with rich black soil, lightly timbered and well watered. A good deal of this land is situated within a few miles only of the settlement, and it has been a matter of surprise, not only to us, but to strangers who have visited the place, that the whole of it has not been under licensed occupation long ago.. We are quite confident that no other part of New South Wales present...

TUESDAY. Before the three Judges. JAMES M'EVOY V. S. T. HUGHES. This was an action of assumpsit, brought on a checque drawn on the Bank of Australasia in fa vour of the plaintiff, under date the 15th May, 1850. The declaration, independent of the count on the checque, contained the usual common counts. Messrs. Darvall and Fisher now appeared, in pursuance of notice, to move for a new trial. In the first instance, it was proposed to read an affi davit filed bv the defendant : but. as the rule of Court in that respect had not been complied with, the Court held that it could not be read. They then commented upon the suspicious nature of the action : the checque, they said, 'sued on was a very great amount ; the pleas invited the plaintiff to go into the particulars and items, showing how that amount was made up, yet he most scrupulously avoided doing so. In conclusion, they contended, considering the amount in issue, the cC6urt would only be furthering the ends of justice by granting a...

THOMAS MOORE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 24 October 1850

THPMAS MOORE. (From the Dublin Nation.) There is something inexpressibly mourn ful in the destiny of our great men. The weird-fate which weaves Ire and's tangled web of sorrow puisues their footsteps with peculiar and relentless hate, and mingles bitterness in the most prosperous cup offered, to their lips. Unlike men of commoner trould they cannot, if they' would, drown «h« .memory of their country's wrongs and degradation in lhe- pursuit of their personal i tercets. ' ' Ireland, manac'eil and weeping, haunts them like, a conscience, sleepless,, untiring, without pause or pit)1.

1'HE ANGLICAN POPE OF MALTA. ? (From the Tablet.*) The Anglican Establishment in Malta is assuming the attitude of a very grieved and angry institution, we must say, with very little cause. A few weeks ago there came under discussion bofore the Supreme Council of Malta a certain criminal code that hau been cooked by the Government at home, and laid before the Council for consideration. This code (Art. 46) enacted certain penal the ceremonies of the Koman Catholic Re ligion, the Anglican Church, or the Estab lished Church of Scotland ; and, in a sepa rate paragraph, repeated the same penalties in the case of similar offences against ' any other Church or society of Christians lawfully assembled.' It further enacted penalties against any person who should publicly blas pheme or insult the name of the Blessed Trinity, or ' any essential article of the Christian religion as exercised and held by the generality of Christians of every Church and denomination.'

You would not understand in what the first part of this prayer consists, unless I explained many things, which I hope hereafter to do. The last part is that beautiful collect in your prayer-book, for the Annunciation — ' Graft, we beseech thee, O I nrA in nnr hfiarts.' &c. Everv bodv who is awake (and the bell generally awakes us) says this prayer, being directed to each part by three strokes of the bell. Thus we all pray together, honouring God for having given us his Son, to be born of a pure Virgin and to take our nature upon Him. The first prayer we are taught to utter when we begin to rise, is a short address to the Holy Trinity, as ' Glory be to...

The first features of the Ameri cans that wiii probably attract your notice are the brightness of their eyes, the thin ness or flesblessness of their persons, the neatness of their dress, the air of haste which pervades their steps, their looks, and actions ; they are very sparing of words ; they will dispose of a- piece of business in half a dozen sentences; a certain roughness in their tone would lead you to suppose they were rude, but they are not so.

WINE AS A DAILY BEVERAGE. (From the India Temperance Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 24 October 1850

WINE AS A DAILY BEVERAGE. STRANGE INFATUATION. (From the India Temperance Journal.) Wine and all alcoholic liquors are among the forbidden things at the table. For a man who has appetite enough to eat a dinner of fish, flesh, fowl, and sweets, to add to these stimulants four or five glasses of wine day after day, is one of the most preposte rous conventionalities that social extrava gance ever invented. And yet to see the so emn regularity with which it is done, one might fancy it was an act of superlative wis dom, instead of the dull routine of an absurd and injurious custom. Put it in this way ; — either the stomach has appetite, and does not require the stimu lus of alcohol to make it digest; or it has not appetite, and should not have food put into it to digest, W here then is the necessity for the daily wine bibbing? Besides, the stomach will only bear a certain amount of stimulation, and if it receives it from the wine it is un able to receive it from the food also ; so that t...
