POLYNESIAN MISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

POLYNESIxkN MISSIONS. We last week promised to give some account of what the church had been doing in the islands of the Pacific, and we now proceed to furnish such a brief sketch of proceedings, as the accounts we have hastily put together may admit. The French missionaries have never visited, nor sent any catechist to the isle of Tanna in the New Hebrides, as may have been sup posed from the Anglican Bishop of New Zealand's statement at a late meeting. With respect to their efforts in, the western isles of the Pacific,, all the world knows that Bishop Epalle left Sydney, on board the schooner Marian Watson, and that having barely landed on the Island of Isabel, one of the Solomon Isles, he was suddenly sur rounded by a troop oi savages who murdered him. I he other missionaries of his suite located themselves on the isle St. Christoval. They remained herein peace for three years in the midst of a friendly people, until three of them, having ventured to visit a neigh bouring tribe, ...

THE CHURCHES AND BASILICAS OF ROME. [Concluded from our last.] [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

THE CHURCHES AND BASILICAS OF ROME. (Ftom the Illustrated London News.) \ [Concluded from our last.] St. Peters. — J^rom what has baen ai- . ready stated relative to the general charac teristics of Basilicas and to lhe particular features of those above-mentioned, it be comes unnecessary to enter into any rela tion professing to be a regular description of this magnificent temple, which differs from them not much in kind, but chiefly in de gree — in the greater splendour and richness of all its details, and in the. enormous ex tent and vastoess of its colossal proportions. The indication of its greatest wonders, and a few historical memoranda, then, may suffice, the more so as fully detailed descrip tious of St. Ptter's have been given in every work of any authority upon Rome, what ever other monuments may have been passed over in silence ; and a full notice would by its extent frustrate our object of presenting as far as possible, within the limits of this memoir, an epitome of tha...

THE DIVINE RIGHT OF KINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

THE DIViJUE RlGHl1 OF KINGS. If our correspondent on this subject has not been so much engrossed in reports of Gorham cases, and ecclesiastical Synods to propound 'opinions not binding,' and municipal elec tions in this our good city of Sydney, as to forget the talk we have had' together, he will remember that we showed, by a few but most decisive fads, that arbitrary power is peculiarly of Protestant growth in England, and that 'that'ere convenient and pleasant fiction' - of popery and arbitrary power, is very awkwardly and provokingly contradicted by the manner in which Kings received and understood their office in those very dark periods of Catholic faith, when alas ! there were; no. gigantic factories to teach little children'industry and cheerfulness, by work-, ing their lives out from morn to night; and - when the poor were compelled to get relief, as they could, from the ever full and watch ful hands of Christian charity for their dear Lord's sake, instead of being provided f...

MIRACULOUS CONVERSION AT ROME. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

\ MIRACULOUS CONVERSION AT ROME. We give the following further particulars con cerning this interesting event from the correspon dent of the Univers, dated Rome, May 26th : — 'I told you in my last letter that the Protestant lady miraculously converted had received the Commu nion, together with her lwsband and children, in the Church of the Trinite-du-Mont. Permit me to add a worn upon this subject. What I am about to state was related to me by an eye witness. The Communion took place in the chapel of the Madonna, know by the name Mater admirabilis, the same in which the cure of the Abbe' Blanpin took place in 1846. The Cardinal Vicar had been sent by the Pope himself, and he ofliciated in his name. The children of the boarding-schools, and the religious ladies sang in strains worthy of angels. The poor woman for whom the miracle had been performed, experienced consolations so overpoAvering, and re ceived inspirations so exalted, that the only words which she could reply to those wh...

On Sunday morning they retiirned and observed the same thing ; they then sent to the church two younggirls, their companions, without Celling them anything, but merely saying, 'G-oto St. Clare's Churchy and observe the picture of the Madonna in such a chapel.'

INTEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

INTEMPERANCE. The fatal effects of this debasing vice are becoming daily more and more manifest and alarming. Not a sudden death, or serious accident, not an execution takes place, but .what can be almost directly traced to the effects of intoxication. When reason is clouded with the fumes of strong drink, the unhappy victim, unable to guard or guide himself, readily falls a prey to every temp-, tation, and becomes the sport of every acci dent. The voice of conscience is stifled by the craving appetite for liquor, the worst passions of the human heart are unchecked, and the rational man is turned into a mon ster of revenge, violence, rapine, or blood. Of this we had a sad spectacle in the un bappy man (Whelan), who expiated last week his ofiences on the gallows. He there declared through the clergyman who attended him in his last awful moments, that had he kept his Pledge and abstained from the use of ' intoxicating drinks,' he would not have fallen into that crime, which he was the...

DR. LEICHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

DR. LBICHARDT. This enterprising traveller has been absent for a sufficient length of time on his journey to the westward to justify the Australian public, for whom he has done so much, in ?-he manifestation of considerable anxiety or his safety. But this anxiety should be iewn, in deeds as well as in words. The overnment at Swan lliver has done its part \ offering rewards to the Aboriginal tribes ^anyassistance rendered to Dr. Leichardt //^iis3dvance, ;or for any intelligence con veyed to the capital as to his whereabouts. The Government and people of New South Wales, although their country has been the principal scene of the Doctor's labors, have done nothing. It is well known that the intention of Dr. Leichardt, in the event of being unable to make his way to the westward, was to lead his party back to Port Essington. At the time he came to this determination there was a military establishment at this port where he reckoned upon obtaining the same aid that was rendered to him at ...

POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 14 November 1850

POLICE. In our last issue we gave an abstract of the Act passed during the present year for re gulating the police force of the colony. An Inspector General of police has already been appointed, and preparations have already, we believe, been made for reorganising the force at the commencement of the ensuing year. But the efforts of the Government, and of its immediate representative the Inspec tor General, will be met and impeded by many practical difficulties. Attention was drawn to these difficulties at the time the new system was under discussion in the Le gislative Council; but they were made light of. We are very much mistaken if a little experience has not since taught the executive thatthe objections alluded to ought to have been more carefully considered while there was a chance of removing them. The Police Act is, for the most part, un objectionable, although somewhat meagre. But if this measure were perfection itself, there are other causes which would prevent it from wor...

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1850. ' Jn JSTecessariis Unitas, in Dubiis Libertas, in Omnibus Ghariias.' THE LATE SESSION OF COUNCIL. We have waited for some time, until we got the whole of the Acts and proceedings of the rlate Session of the Legislative Council before us with a view of commenting upon them, ?and drawing from them some inferences, which it is highly important should at the present time be presented to the public mind. We propose to conduct our enquiry in a twofold viewj first as to the spirit of the session, and second, as to its acts ; and in both relations much will be found to guide the electors of the colony in their choice of representatives under the New Constitutional Act, which is now daily expected in the Colony. And first with regard to the spirit of the Session. With the exception of some few practical measures, mostly introduced by the officers of the Gevernment, the governing spirit of the last Session was the spirit of quackery.

AN OXFORD CONVERSATION. {jbrom ' Loss and Gam. ) While Charles was learning in Carlton's rooms the interest which the world took in his position and facts, he was actually fur nishing a topic of conversation to that por tion of it which was assembled in social musing in the neighbouring common room. Tea and coffee had made their appearance, the guests had risen from the table, and were crowding round the fire. ' Who is this Mr. Reding, spoken of in the Gazette of last week ?' said a prim little man, sipping his tea with his spoon, and rising on his toes as he spoke. ' You need not go for for an answer,' said his neighbour, and, turning to their host, added, ' Carlton, who is Mr. Reding ?' ' A very dear honest fellow,' answered Carlton ; ' I wish we were all of. us as good. He read with me one long va cation, is a good seholar, and ought to have gained his class.
