SATURDAY—LAST DAY OF TERM. ADMISSION OF ATTORNEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

SATURDAY— Last Day of Term. ADMISSION OF ATTORNEYS. On the motion of Mr. Broadhurst, Messrs. Alexander Dick, Henry Green, and George Tow nail, were admitted solicitors, attorneys, and proc tors of the Supreme Court. KEENAN V. YARNTON AND OTHERS. The Attorney-General, on a former day obtained a rule nisi, calling upon Mr. Yarnton, to show cause why he should not answer certain matters set forth in an affidavit made by iveenan. Iveenan was a fireman on board the steam-ship Juno ; the captain being indebted to him for wages, he em ployed Mr. Yarnton to summons him in the Water Police Court. Accordingly the matter was partially enquired into, when Mr. Yarnton suggested that the summons should be withdrawn ; and that he (the plaintiff) could sue in the Supreme Court in forma pauperis, when he would get the whole amount claimed. The writ of summons was taken out, and the usual Judge's order for suing in forma pauperis was obtained. The defendant paid into Court the sum of £3 6s. 2d., and ...

Miles, a decision of this Court in the year 1848, where the Court held, under pe culiar, circumstances, a lessor of the plaintiff might in his declaration insert demises in the name of de ceased parties. Mr. Broadhurst showed cause, contending that the rule which prevented the use of a deceased's name in an action of ejectment only extended to the case, where a lessor- of the plaintiff was using it unmeritoriously or inequitably.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. MANEROO. (To the Editors of the Freeman's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

| .ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. i MANEROO. j (To the Editors of the Freeman's Jounial.) ? j ? Gentlemen, — We have had a most propitious spring in this district, such an one as had not been known for many years. On Monday, the 14th in stant, we were visited by an extraordinary flood, ' occasioned by a thunder shower, and for eight days ! subsequently the sky continued overcast, and at 1 intervals mild showers fell. Again, on the 24th, another terrific thunder-storm took place, but tlie flood which accompanied the storm was not very violent. The inhabitants look forth for the return of the good name which Maneroo once attained for the fatness and largeness of its cattle, as well as for its exuberant vegetation. The many lagoons with which this country abounds, are now full, and there are large flocks of water fowl upon them. Streamlets are also to be met with in all parts of the country. The flood of Monday, the 14th, did not pass without accident. 'A young man of the name of Fraser was ...

THE NEW POLICE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

THE NEW POLICE ACT. As the new police act is now published and will probably come into operation at the commencement of the year, we proceed to give a general abstract of its provisions, with a view of making some observations upon them at a future period. The act then provides for the Election of an Inspector-General of police throughout the colony, with a salary of not more than £800, with power to frame rules, orders, and regulations for the general good of the police force, as well with respect to the places of their residence, their classification , rank, particular services, distribution and inspection, as to the description of the arms, accoutrements, and other necessaries to be furnished to them, and which of them shall be supplied with horses, &c, and to alter and amend such rules from time to time. That six provincial inspectors shall be appointed, with salaries not exceeding £400 a year; such provincial inspectors to be charged and invested with the general direct...

EPITOME OF NEWS—ENGLISH AND FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

KPITOMK OF NKWS — ENGLISH MSB FOREIGN. The Westminster Palace. — To mean one thing and to do another, is the last sign of weakness ; but it is a sign of which this country in its collective and official capacity is often guilty. The vast struc ture south-west of Westminster Bridge is a promi nent instance. It turns out to be different in every respect from the original intent. 1 he estimate was about £785,000 ; the. expenditure has been or is to be about £2,500,000. There was to have been accommodation for 460 members in the body of the house ; it only suffices for 437 ; the lobbies are too small; the gallery destined for strangers is wanted tor members.' In defence, Mr. Barry avers that too many alterations were forced upon him ; and Sir .Robert Peel convicts Mr. Hume of suggesting some of these extensive alterations. Mr. Hume, said .Sir Robert Peel, quoting a blue book, suggested the iumse for the sergeant at arms, and Lord Besbo rough assented ' with very great reluctance.' So ih...

THE ELECTION OF CITY , COUNCILLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

THE ELECTION OF CITY, COUNCILLORS. - The following six candidates for civic honors have been returned as duly elected, by the number of votes recorded for each respect pectively, viz : Lenehan ? .... . ? ? 898 Driver ? . . . ? 739 Weekes ? ? ? 685 Simmons ? 676 Tierney . . . . ... .'. ? 580 Peek ? ? 555 So far the ' New City Council Bill' has worked well. The opinion expressed by us in our last issue — ' that no unfit or incom petent candidate could have any chance of being returned by the united voice of the citizens voting as one body,' has been verified by the result of last Monday's Election. Another gratifying feature obser vable in this Election was, the absence of that low contrivance of. stealing away the elector's cool and impartial judgment, by the shameful means of copious supplies of intoxicating drinks, hitherto most culpably resorted to by some candidates or their friends. We trust that the day may soon arrive when public opinion will run so strong against those despic...

iftiligciUaufon** i The Raven's Description of a Funeral. — The other day there was a person ' went and died ' (as our proprietor's wife says) close to our establishment. Upon my beak, I thought I should have fallen off my perch, they made me laugh so at the funeral ! Oh my crop and feathers, what a scene it was ! I never saw the owl so charmed. It was just the thing for him. First of all two dressed-up fellows came — trying to look sober, but they could'nt do it, — :and ituck themselves outside the door. Their they stood for hours, with a couple of crutches co vered over with drapery, cutting their jokeis on the company as they went in, and breathing such strong rum and water into our establishment over the way that the guinea pig, who has a poor little head, was drunk in ten minutes. You are so proud of your humanity. Ha, ha! As if a pair of respectable crows would'nt have done it much better ! Byand by there came a hearse and four, and then two car riages and four ; and on the to...

THE TABLET.—PAYMENT OF SUBSCRIPTIONS IN ADVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

THE TABLET.—BAYMKIXT OF SUBSCRIP TIONS IN ADVANCE. It is gratifying to learn that this excellent weekly paper has so far taken deep root in the Irish soil, and in the good opinion of the faithful in Ireland, as to enable its spirited and talented Editor and Proprietor, Frede rick Lucas, to publish three times a week, as well as to continue his weekly issue. Mr. Lucas in the Tablet of the 25th of May, makes the following announcement to0 that effect, and very properly insists on payment, in advance : — ' Our offer to publish an Evening Paper three times a week, is, in a certain sense, conditional. The thing itself we have determined to do ; we have ordered the type ; and in about three or four weeks, on a day to be fixed very shortly, the first number of the Evening Tablet will — please God, and our blessed Lady — be published. The ' condi tion ' to which we have alluded is, that as we un dertake this enterprise at the request of our sub scribers, they, in their turn, will be good en...

There are certain ob structionists among the worshipful legislators of York-street who manage to delay every useful measure upon the plea of taking time for its consideration ; thus making their con stituents incur a penalty — perhaps not an improper one— for having sent men of such dull intellect to represent them. But we seldom find that those gentlemen acquire additional wisdom or additional information through these delays. O...

THE ANGLICAN-BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

THE ANGLICAN -BISHOPS, 1 On looking through the speeches made at the great Church of England meeting, we find only two allusions to the Catholic Church. The Bishop of New Zealand speaking of the islands of the Western Pacific, said ' the Church of Rome had made some attempts to convert these islanders, but had been compelled to abandon these attempts in consequence of the savage, na ture of the people.' On this subject, and on the Catholic missions to the islands gene rally, we shall take an early opportunity of giving our readers some information. The other allusion came from Mr. Charles Lowe, and unlike that of the Bishop, was of a polemical character. This gentleman ob served that ' by thai; assembly they fiaa tne opportunity of witnessing the full and conir plete representation of the provincial Church of Australasia; they thus saw her placed before them in innate union and power — occupying in the eyes of Christendom a po sition of prominence second to none of the daughters of ...

Our readers will bear in mind that the Bishop is a Member oi the French Assembly. ' Still we need not shrink from studying these wonderfnl events in their, relation to the laws of God, and considering how providence makes use of the interests and the passions of men to arrive at its own ends, by. 'confounding1 the wisdom of the Avise,' says the Scripture, and disconcerting the pru dence of profound politicians. ' They had said then : religion has nothing to do with' things of this world, let her remain in her temples and never speak even there of what passes on earth, for her kingdom is elsewhere ; let her address the inmost conscience of each man.

INJUNCTIONS OF THE HOLY SEE ON EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 7 November 1850

INJUNCTIONS OF THE HOLY SEE ON EDUCATION, Men's minds are now so much engaged in the pursuit of material objects, and so in tent on carrying out the results of the im provements made in physical science, that they seem to forget the end for which thej themselves were created, and to overlook altogether the means of attaining that end. W hiist they can travel with the rapidity of the wind over seas and lands, by the aid of rarified vapour, and convey their thoughts from one end of a continent to another with' the swiftness of lightning, by means of the electric fluid, they areapttoneglecttheknow leclge of Him who created these things, and endowed them with such properties for their , use and benefit.
