But, my friends, the months that. have passed by since the.first open avowal of my sentiments, to my then Roman Catholic Bishop, in presence ·of another Roman Catholic Clergyman, would serve as: an answer to such accusations; while my written as ,well as personal communications, upon' this subject, with the truly pious and Protestant Rector of Castle towndelvin, long previous to the open announcement of my sentiments to, my Bishop,' must falsify the asser *tion, that ".this change was the moment." . Allow me also to tell you that I have mentioned my past doubts, not only months but years ago, to a near re lative, who summoned up many a plausible argument to dissuade me froni that course, which I trust, under the guidance of Heaven, I have now adopted; an...

THE MARQUIS OF HUNTLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 30 July 1835

THE MARQUIS OF HUNTLEY. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.]   AFTER the late melancholy loss of so many of our fellow creatures in the ships, George the Third, and Neva, it will be a relief to turn to a a picture of a different kind, and to notice the landing of 319 convicts from the Marquis of Huntley, on Thursday last; one of the whole number having died on the passage. These men were clean, healthy and robust in appearance ; and their condition reflects the highest credit on the well-known experience, humanity, and be- nevolence, of the the Superintendent. We have much pleasure in expressing our entire appro- bation of his arrangements, whatever they may have been, to which we must attribute such uni- formly happy and desirable results. This is Mr. Osborne's seventh trip with prisoners to this colony; and we are happy to state he has always had the same success. We observe in last Government Gazette, that the value of Imports at the Custom House Sydney, for the quarter ending, J...

And should a ship approach our shores with a patient sick or dying of cholera instead of rum, would. not the Government require the yellow flag to be hoisted and the vessel to remain in quarantine. Thenr why should not the people of this land take the alarm, and resolve so to, withdraw from spirit drinking, and so to withdraw their approval from spirit drinkers, that 'all' such' may become 'iso lated ? thus' the reformers would form' a sanatory cordon and the plague, a plague wor...
