Country News. BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

-&mintvy! Nrtos. BATHURST. Considerable falls of rain have visited this neighbourhood during the past week, and at the moment of writing it is raining as mer rily as the most dissatisfied farmer could wish. All tbe ploughs are at work, with prospects of a good season A traveller re-visiting Bathurst now, after an absence of two or three years, would be foroibly struck with tne surprising extension of the town. On all sides houses are springing up, and all ap parrnuy quic.Kiy nnu occupants. But amongst the most pro minent features of the place, one regrets to observe the dispropor tionate number of public house signs ; they are almost countless. The inns however confer one very great favor on the pedestrian at this time of the year, their lamps affording light enough to save a man from sticking in the mud, as he would most unquestionably do were he not guided by one these goodly stars. ' The Bank is very nearly complete, and will be one of the hand somest buildings in the tow...

HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

HOLLAND. The question of Primary Instruction is anxiously dis cussed by the Catholics of Holland. In the province of Hortrem, Brabant, the majority of the inhabitants are Catholic, but two-thirds of the inspectors of schools be long to other religious professions, a circumstance which v exercises so serious an influence on education, that fre quently communes, exclusively Catholic, cannot procure a schoolmaster, and the instruction and the books used in the schools generally is ouch as not to be depended upon by Catholic parents. The following protest, published by the Catholic Bishops of Holland, represents very nearly the state of things :— t! The Catholics are not allowed to give their children a religious tendency in reference to the Catholic religion ; and this because permission is denied them to establish special schools of their own. In the existiug school books are used contrary to the principles of their religion. Almost everywhere, in public instruction, the school master...

Postage on Newspapers, — Petitions against the Postage on Newspapers were in course of signature in the Maitland and New England Districts.

DEATH BY INTOXICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

DEATH BY INTOXICATION. (From the Manchester Examiner and Times.) Sir, — I observe in a late number a sad account ot the death of a poor wretch who had drunk, it seems, in rapid succession, eight noggins of rum, in one public house, five of these being suyplied by the, landlord, and three, by a girl. The verdict on the inquest was ♦' Died from , excessive drinking of rum.' Now, sir, I wish to know, whether it is right that any man should be allowed to sup ply so great a quantity of liquor to another as to endan ger, and, as in this case, destroy life ? If an apo^h€caTy were to supply to any of his customers so many ounces of laudanum as to constitute a fatal dose, and/watch him drinking them off one after another, should we not hear something of a charge of culpable homicide?. Perhaps, sir, you can show me where lies the difference between these two cases. — I am yours, &c, A Townsman. [As there is a Bill about to be passed in the Legisla- ' tiva Council to prevent druggists ...

CATHOLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

CATHOLIC MEETING. (From the Melbourne Morning Herald.) We announced in Saturday's Herald, that a public meeting of the Roman Catholic community had been held on the previous evening, in the St. Francis' School Room ; as well as the result arrived at, viz., — a repudia tion of the recent proceedings of the Benevolent Society Committee, and a severance of all further connection with the institution that is to be ; we now proceed with further details. The meeting was numerously attended, there being about from 300 to 350 persons present. The platform was occupied by the Roman Catholic Bishop, Dean Coffev, Mr. West by, J.P., (one of the trustees of the Benevolent Asylum) and the proposers and seconders of the various resolutions. The business of the meeting was opened by a short, pithy, and fervent address from the Bishop, who, on the motion of Dean Coffey, was moved to the chair. His lordship explained the reasons which had induced hire to convene them, and referred to some of the late...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. Some of our country friends have had reason to complain on account of not receiving 'The Frbeman' in idue course. This arose irom no neglect on cur part, as all the papers were postsd in Sydney, but through^ some mistake at the Post-office, excuseable perhaps in the first instance, papers directed to ?Berrima were sent to Wollongorig. The non-arrrival of papers for 'our Liver pool subscribers must have arisen from some similar error. We trust that this will not occur a second time. .Now that postage is charged on newspapers ihe least that can be expected is, that proper attention be paid to their transmission. We regret that the paper was not delivered in due time to some of our city subscribers. This was chiefly owing to the runners not being able to find out the residence of some subscribers, as there is no name to new streets or numbers to the houses, especially those on the Reiley Estate. We trust that this shall be rectified,, and request that any one not re...

WEDNESDAY, 10th JULY. THE ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

WEDNESDAY, 10th JULY. THE ESTIMATES. v On the house resolving into a committee for the consideration of the supplementary estimates for 1850, and those for 1851, Mr. Donaldson spoke at some length on their vast amount, drawing particular attention to the absorption of the land fund, through the expense of orphan immigration and the survey department. He also considered that the expenditure under the head of Crowu Land com missioners was too heavy. ? . Mr. Mdrray called the attention of the house to the outlay for public buildings, the cost of which he deemed might be for less than what it was at present, as in the instance of the new Ireasury, where there was a great deal of ornamental work which might be very well dispensed with. Mr. Bowman was of opinion that the wages allowed the orphans were too high. The ATTORNbY-GfiNERAL remarked that the wages allowed the orphans were only such as would find them clothing, and as a class, ' the conduct of these girls had been as correct as co...

IRELAND. STATE OF THE COUNTRY. DEATH BY STARVATION AND PKOSELYTISM. Roundstone, County Galway. Dear Mr. Lucas—I shall feel particularly grateful if you can spare a little space in your invaluable and Catho lic journal to place befere a charitable and discerning public the enclosed verdicts, adopted by an impartial jury a few miles hence, in this ill-fated and neglected locality of the Clifclen Union. The most deeply-digested economy on the part of the, Poor-law officials, since the commencement of this un paralelled scourge of Heaven, aud the awful results of that State economy, were but a mere shadow to the reality, when we consider and see the inhuman and cruel course adopted by the local guardians since their advent to office. The starving poor, who are as yet left on out= door relief, aud who are only allowed — by the exquisite knowledge this body of guardians seem to have of human strength — half the quantity which the law considered the minimum for the preservation -of life, h...

UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

UNITED STATES. ' The United States' Protectionists.— -(jFVoni the Brighton Herald.) — But one of the greatest causes of differences in the Republic is, the clashing interests of the agriculturists and the manufacturers. At the head of the latter are Mr. President Taylor and his treasurer, Mr. Meredith. They are both, with all their principal colleagues or officials, Protectionists — orotectors of ' native industry.' The Senate, and the House of Re presentatives, on the contrary, are Free Traders. In America, it is just the reverse. There, the consumers of manufactured goods want to get them as cheaply as they can, and are ready to exchange their agricultural produce for them. But the manufacturists want the agriculturists to purchase the goods which they — the American manufacturers — make. The agriculturists would not object to that, if the American-made goods were as cheap as English, French, or German goods; but they will not pay more ior goods merely because they are made in Ame...

ABOLITION OF THE VICE-ROYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

ABOLITION OF THE VICE-ROYALTY. (From the Cork Examiner, March 1 1.) The rumours about the abolition of the Lord Lieute nancy have given place to certainty at last. That insti tution — almost the only remaining semblance of inde pendent unity that the country possessed — is now extinct, with only the brief delay in point of form interposed by the necessity of an Act of Parliament. Nothing further exists to interrupt the perfect level of provincial degrada tion. The destruction of our national distinctness is now thoroughly confirmed. The legislative and execu tive functious have both been transferred to England. With the exception of her judicature, and that not com plete within itself, Ireland retains at this moment none of the attributes of independent existence, or anything to distinguish her from Yorkshire— except her poverty. There is no possibility of mistaking the character or tendency of this last measure. It is part of that fell policy, which, through the changes of time and...

THE IRISH STATE; PRISONERS; ??; V One of our country agents has informed us that a- few persons in his neighbourhood had taken ? offence tit an expression or two in the letter from Van Dieman's Land, regarding the state prisoners, publishod in our last. Now we beg to inform these very sensitive inxlividuals, that there is not in Van Dieman's Land or in New South Wales, a more sincere friend to the state prisoners tl,an the gentleman who sent us that communication, and that nothing was farther from his mind than to write a word which could be fairly construed as reflecting on his countrymen now in exile in a foreign land.

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM—MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 11 July 1850

BENEVOLENT ASYLUM—MELBOURNE. We have given elsewhere a condensed report of the pro ceedings of the public meeting of Catholics, held at Melbourne, with reference to the above named Institu. tion. What a pity it is, that when benevolent ; gentle- men of different religious opinions unite for the purpose of effecting some humane and charitable object, that they do not endeavour to avoid whatever may be considered offensive or objectionable by those who are joined with them in carrying out such good work ! , It is a time hallowed maxim with Catholics, Lex orandi lex credendi, ' The rule of praying is the rule of believing.' When they hold not the belief of others, they do not pray with them. Some of the Melbourne Protestants seem to act as if they were living under the sway of the Anti-Catholic Penal Laws, and in the good old times of ? Protestant ascendency. This however not being the case, those of Melbourne would do well to follow the example of their Protestant brethren in Sydney, ...
