TEETOTALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
TBBTOTALISM. We had much pleasure in recording, in our last issue, the revival of an old society for the promotion of Abstinence from all in toxicating drinks, at Wollongong. As there is no one subject of higher importance in the estimation of the philanthropist, than the consideration of the best means of check ing the increase of drunkenness, we avail ourselves of the present opportunity to say how gladly we shall give a place in our columns to any account we may receive of similar efforts in other parts of the colony. It has been found by experience that con fraternities of Total Abstinence, or as they are commonly called, -: Teetotal Societies,' have been most successful in promoting the great Christian Virtue of Temperance, and thus providing a remedy for half of the evils to which society is exposed. The for mation, indeed, of these confraternities con stitutes one of the most important features in the progress of the age. The actual good effected by Teetotal Societies through...
Ecclesiastical Intelligence. OPENING OF THE PENRITH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
-&ci~l£$ia$tical Inmiigntre. ' OPENING- OF THE PENRITH CHURCH. On Wednesday, the 13th instant, the newly erected' Catholic Church of St. Nicholas, at Penrith, , was opened for Divine Service by His Grace the Archbishop, assisted by the Right Rev. Bishop Coadjutor.. The beautiful ceremony of blessing the Church was performed bv the 'Bishop, attended hy the Very Rev. the Vicar-General, the Venerable the Archdeacon, the Rev. Dean of Sydney, and several others of the Sydney and rural clergy. As. we beheld the Prelate in his full Pontifical robes, with his long retinue of Ecclesiastics chaunting the plaintive Miserere, as they made a. circuit ot the goodly edifice, our minds naturally reverted to the days when, even in this country, the solitary humble priest was obliged at the peril of life to seek caverns and hiding places amidst the. wild bush, wherein to , celebrate the Divine mysteries, and to minister to the wants of the few poor hungry sheep whom he had happily snatched fr...

THE PLENARY COUNCIL OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
THE PLENARY COUNCIL OF IRELAND. The following document will show, the constitu tion and objects of the approaching synod : — ' Paul by the Grace of God, and favour of 'the Apostolic See, = Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of all Ireland, Delegate of' the Apostolic See, &c. 'Toour most illustrious and moet Reverend Bre thren, the Archbishops and Bishops of Ireland. and all others having a right to be present at the National Council, Health in the Lord. ' Whereas the purpose entered into last year by all the Prelates of Ireland, of holding a Plenary Council of the entire kingdom, has been approved of by our Most Holy Lord, Pope Pius IX., now happily reigning ; and whereas the same Supi-eme Pastor of the Church has conferred (as appears from1- the letter given in form of brief, under date of April the 6th, and appended to this decree) on us the power of convoking, in conformity with the sacred canons, the said Synod, and presiding over the same, even in quality of Apostolic Delega...
THE COASTING TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
THE COASTING TPvADE. Nauttcal pursuits are at all times hazard ous, but the coasting trade of this colony appears to have been attended with some what more than the usual proportion of disas ter. Many valuable lives and much property are annually lost on . the- shores of Nevr South Wales. And besides the terrible amount of suffering entailed in this way upon individuals, the commercial interests of the colony must necessarily sustain in jury — first, from the frequent derangement in the various lines of communication be tween distant settlements and the capital ? and secondly, from the bad reputation which the continued - records of shipwreck ha& earned for the Australian coast. It is of great importance therefore to en quire into the causes of these disasters. Even if the evil should not admit of an im mediate remedy, still it may be found that danger does not so much exist in the diffi culties of the navigation as in the careless ness or unskilfulness of the navigator.

THE PUBLICAN'S BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
THE PUBLICAN'S HILL. The remarks we have made upon the spirit of the. late Session will appear specially ap plicable to the proposed alterations in the Publican's Bill, — and we wish therefore to say a few. words on that subject by itself. Leaving the personal objects of the honorable and learned proposer of these alterations out of the discussion, does not, we ask, the very, reception of his Bill on the table of the House, I justify all we have said about the Legislative Council ? And what, let us further enquire, can be conceived more hope less, than the effort to conciliate the dis contented publicans, by any concession to their demands ? The present Bill under went the most patient and scrutinizing in vestigation in passing through its several stages during two Sessions in the Council Chambers, watched throughout its progress by the ablest advocates the wealth and in fluence of the L;censed Victuallers could procure. Should the Council now betray such unsteadiness of purpose as ...

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1850. "In Necessariis Unitas, in Dubiis Libertas, in Omnibus Charitas." THE LATE SESSION. NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1850. ' In Necessariis Unitas, in Dubiis Lihertds, in Omnibus Charitas.' THE LATE SESSION. NO. II. In our last issue we briefly illustrated the spirit in which our legislators had proceeded to the performance of the responsible duties entrusted, to them, during their last sitting. We entered upon the enquiry with the view of affording to the colonists some grounds on which to make choice of their representa tives in the general election, which must shortly take place. We then pretty plainly showed, that on the most important points which can engage the attention of a legislature, the Council had betrayed an ignorance and incapacity most unsatisfactory to the colony. That on questions Of commercial and economic policy, there had been much flippant talking, but no sound legislation. That great principles had been, thrust aside to make way for tem porary expedients, while the general interest had been made subservient to class protec tion, and class advancement. ...

LETTERS FROM BELGIUM. (Continued from No. 20.) LETTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
LETTERS FROM BELGIUM. (From the Catholic Weekly Instructor.) (Continued from No. 20.) LETTER IV. All the books that have ever been written, - and all the sermons that have ever been preached, to set aside this great Article of Faith ; to all and each, the Catholic has an answer in one short text : ' God is Love.' It is\of necessity that love must have an object. Man was created to be this object — wonder of wonder^ — to be this object to God. Love must have a return from the object loved, and to provoke this return, everything in creation of beautiful and good was given to man. But he was ungrateful, and fell. A greater scheme of love than creation, then met his disobedient heart— the scheme of Redemption. To this his at tention was to be kept alive by a system of daily duties, all reminding him of the one great plan formed for bringing him home to God. The most important of these was sacrifice. From the beginning we read of Cain's sacrifice. It was never lost sight of, that our red...
IRELAND AND THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
Ireland and the catholic university. The friends of the ' Godless Colleges,' as they are in the habit of doing, so they are in the habit of saying, a great many things that will not bear investigation. theirar-. gument in behalf of disobedience to eccle siastical authority, we decline to meddle with; at least in the present stage of the business. These are to be confuted, not by reasoning, but by fact. A long course of quibbling, deceit, and prevarication, carried on by successive generations of Jansenists during the seventeenth aud eighteenth cen turies, proves to demonstration — even if abundant evidence were not to be found in other 3ges of the Church — that with this kind of disloyal reasoners there is but one conclusive argument — that is, the exercise of authority upon, and against themselves. The Jansenists of our day, with not a trace of ihe ability, have, of course, all the good will of their .spiritual progenitors : ,not the same intellectual disingenuous keenness, but the...

NEWSPAPER ANTECEDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 21 November 1850
NEWSPAPER ANTECEDENTS. (From Dickens' Household Words.) Those in whom the appetite for news is very strong* must wonder how our forefathers existed without newspapers ; for so it hap pened that the lieges of these realms did get on very well wunout mem up i© meuap of the first of the Stuarts. But although they had no printed newspapers, they could not and did not do without news ; conveyed orally in the form of gossip, or by means of manuscript intelligencers. Friendly com munications containing the gossip of the town for the enlightenment of cousins in the country are as old as pen and ink, and much older than paper; for many, still extant in the British Museum, were written on vellum. By-and-bye, the writing of such letters be came a profession, and every country family of pretension, could boast of ' our own correspondent.' These writers were generally disbanded military officers, younger sons very much ' about town,' and, not un/requently, clergymen. Shirley in his ' Love Tricks...
