iatjurst s tfrait Court. --o- (From the Ilerald.) TUESDAY. SEPT. 29. Before Iles Honor DMr. Justice .Terry. NEGLIGENT ESCAPE.. John O'Neill, lockup.keeper at the ~cea:lherboarded Hut, was indicted for allowing a prisoner committed to his charge to escape. It" appeared that at the last March Assizes, one Nowlan alias Cashen, was convicted of mail robbery and attempt to murder, and sentenced to transpur tation for life, and on the30th March was forwarded under escort, to Sydney, and on the way down was lodged in the lockup at the Weatherboardad IIHut for security, and in charge of the present prisoner;. that during the night he managed to make his escape, and has not since been apprehended. O'Neill was defended by Mr. Purefoy. The lockup was a very insecure building, and ten or twelve iron gang men, and who were allowed free ingress and egress, were also lodged there, and from the evi dence on the trial it appeardl probable that they had aided Nowlan in making his escape.

AMERICA. STATE OF THE OREGON QUESTION.—ORGANISING ARMAMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 October 1846
AMERICA. STATE OF THE OREGON QUESTION.-OR , GANISING ARMAMENTS. (From The Freeman, April 18.) The intelligence from America is of cdnsiderable importance, though it does not convey tous any definite information respecting the proceedings to be taken regarding Oregon. Towards the close of the month of March the President replied by message to the inquiry of the Senate, " whether, in his judgment, any circum cumstances connected with or growing out of the foreign relations of America required at that time an increase of her naval and military force. The answer was at once firm and prudent ;. Mr. Polk said tliat " a wise' precaution demanded such in= ciease." Accompanying the message, from which this sig nifici nt. passage. is extracted, we find two reports: from the Secretaries of the Army and Navy of the United States, developing the extent to winch they recommend that their several arms shall be aug mented. These reports are yet more significant, The Secretary at War recommends that...

A Ronuao t PnREVaNTED.-- As the pri vate watchman of the Glebe was on his way to call the fireman of Mr. Pemel's steam-mill, between the hours of 4 and 5 o'clock on Friday mornilng, he saw a man getting into or coming out from the premises occuped by Mr. S. riltcher, butcher, of Parramatta street, opposite to Mr. Robert Cooper's premises, and upon the watchman's appearance he made off and eltected his escape. The watchman found upon examination that theI front bar to the shutters had been taken down and laid in the street; likewise several joints of meat had been taken off the hooks, and placed on the block, ready to be carried off; also the desk and drawer had been removed from their usual place, and it is supposedl for the purpose of being taken away. Great praise is duo to the watchman for his attention, and if it had not been through him, there is not the least doubt but the shop and premises would have been robbed to a con siderable amount.

AN APOLOGY FOR ROBIN HOOD'S LETTER. To the Editor of the Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 October 1846
AN APOLOGY FOR tOBIN HOOD'S LIETTER. Tob the Editor of the Chronicle. Sla-i regret exceedingly to hear that the com munication which Idid myself the honour of ad dressing to:you, and which appeared in your journal of the-23rd instant,-has subjected your printer and publisher to no less than three civil prosecutions and one criminal. "I cannot help believing, for many reasons, that this extraordinary step has been taken for the purpose of crushing the,-gentleman who fills that office in your journal, if not, indeed, the journal itself. I have no wish to tax Mr.IBoyd with malevolence-far from it. Mr. Boyd is known to have been benevolent to the-unfortunate, and I have stated so in my letter. I cannot conceive what possible grounds Mr. Boyd can have on which to found an application for a criminal prosecution. I -have read the letter over carefully, and can discover nothing. Indeed even now I think that the step was taken in a momentary fit of.ire; and I hope that calm reflection will c...
THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. "Sir,—I think it is the feeling of every person in this house, that he has witnessed the extent of the railway speculation that has taken place, with the deepest regret. We have seen these railways proposed, not for the purpose of constructing works of public utility, nor for even any legitimate purpose of pecuniary speculation, but in a fit of one of those speculative raging fevers, from which this country has in many instances suffered so severely. We have before seen the investments made in South American bonds, and the numerous speculations of the kind ; and one might have hoped that the calamitous result of these, would have read a lesson not speedily forgot. But the extent of railway mania has shown that former losses have had no effect ; nor can I now see reason to suppose that individual sufferings of any extent or kind will prevent the periodical return of this fatal fever of speculation In many communications I have had with persons who were involved in these railway schemes, I found that they were very much, almost entirely, in the hands of lawyers, provisional directors, and engineers ; persons who had an interest in the expenditure arising out of the proceeding ; and once entaugled, the shareholders had no means of escape."—SIR R.

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 7 October 1846
Urnwrt e0xtracts, -o THE VICTORY of SAsaAoN.-Although it may be seem Invidious to mention individuals who distin guished themselves, where all were brave, we feel as Irishmen both pride and pleasure in recording the fact, that the 10th Foot, who led the attack at the late glorious battle of Sobraon, and who, as recorded by the Commander-in-Chief's despatch, reserved their fire until within the enemy's batteries, was headed by an Irishman, Lieut.-Colonel Franks. The gallant Colonel is a native of the county of Cork, having been born near .the town of Mallow. He is the brother of William Franks. Esqt, of Car rick Castle; and brother-in-law of Sir Denham Jephson Norreys, for many years member of par liament for Mallow. He is also the nephew of two of our most respected citizens - one, Sir John Franks, an eminent member of the bar, and formerly Chief Justice of Calcutta, the othpr of equal worth, and held in the highest estimation, Mr..Matthew Franks, of Merrion square, for many..years ...

R?OBIN HOOD'S LETTER.;?;.

This, we believe has been a general complaint; this fact,4ogether with our desire to make. such repara tion as' we may, induces us .to-re-publiskhthe letter, in the hope, that the ample apology which Robin Hood las himself made may be deemed a sufficient one by thesgentlemen named or alluded to in his 'first letter.

PARTY PROCESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 October 1846
PARTY PROCESSIONS. WE have received a copy of a Bill, inti tuled " A Bill to prevent party processions and certain other public exhibitions. in the Colony of New South Wales," which Bill was, on Thursday, on the mnotion- of the Colonial Secretary, cseonded by the'Attor ney-General, read a first time, and ordered to be read a second time on Wednesday next. We must confess that we feel con siderable surprise at the enactments of this Bill, cn abstract of which we give below. The provisions of this Bill we cannot but regard as an invasion of the civil liber ties of the people of this Colony. Though ostensibly introduced for the purpose of suppressing the processions of societies or associations "of a political character," it will most unquestionably put a stop to the' processions of all societies, associations, or clubs whatsoever, except the Free-Masons and Odd-Fellows. What the members of the various I'otal Abstinence Societies in the Colony have done to cause such an enactment, we k...

AMERICA. STATE OF THE OREGON QUESTION. (From 7The Times, May 14.) New York, April 21. Tihe steamer Unicorn arrived at Boston on the 17th, having had a passage of 20 days. Public opinion is divided as to the character of the intelli gence she brings. Some consider it pacific, while others view it dillerently. Your correspondent is among the first, but thinks lie can discover in the British people, if not in the British Government, an increased restlessness and dissatisfaction with the unsettled and uncertain state of British and Ameri can alihirs. Matters appear to be drawing to a crisis. Be assured they cannot remain long in their present state. It is proper-perhaps it is my duty- to say here that tue American people are also becoming restless. Their men of enterprise are paralyzed; their capi talists are cautiously withdiawing their capital from active circulation ; their regular business operations, mechanical as well as commercial, are interrupted, or rendered precarious, by the ...

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. No. 526 to 528.—Christian Remembrancer.—English Review—Dublin Review for April. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 October 1846
TLE CIIURCHI OF ENGLAND, From the Dublik Eveniny Post. No. 526 to 523.-Ch/ristiahu Remiemrancer. English Rieview.--Dublin Review for April, Here are three Reviews dedicated to religious or ecclesiastical subjects, as well as the Church of England, mentioned above. One would suppose that England was thinking of nothing less than her immortal soul. This, however, we are afraid, is not quite the case. We imagine. from the tenor of some of these periodicals, that shce is thinking more of the Jesuits just now, or, at least, that her clerical writers, like Scrub in the play, setdown all the calamities, which they tell us are impending over England, to the machinations of this fornida ble society. Indeed the EnSlish Review goes so far as to recommend stringent measures for their extermination. They preach .up the policy of evic tion w;th as much earnestness, as certain Irish landlords do, in regard to the cottier tenan try of Ireland. The policy of France, in respect to the disciples of Ig...
