EVICTION OF TENANTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 4 November 1846
EVICTION OF TENANTRY. (From the .Daily News.) Every one almost, who has given, the subject serious consideration, laughs at.the.notionthat the Coercion Bill will secure.the peace of the country, while, paripassu, gentlemen continue to turn their tenantry on the road-side, and to pull down their .cottages. We do not pretend to deny that gentle men have the law on their side, and that the Duke of Newcastle's principle, that every one has a right to do what he pleases with his own, isaheld in gene ral esteem, and acted upon in England and Scotland, as well as In Ireland. But we do think, notwith standing the law-notwithptanding the practice, Government-to whose management are entrusted the peace and rwell-being. of soeiaty-have some reason to complain of the trouble and anxiety which are thus thrown upon their shoulders. Granted, that a mnn may.do what he pleases with his own, care should be taken tl?t' ho do not injure his neigh bour by the exercise of hip undoubied right. A man may p...
THE OREGON QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 4 November 1846
TIIE OREGON QUESTION. (From the Times, June 24.) We entertain a confident assurance, from the nature of the communications which have been received by Great Britain from the United States, that the progress of the negociation for the settlement of the.Oregon dispute was completely satisfactory up to the time of the departure of the .last mails. Mr. Pakenham had at once proceeded to communicate to the American Government the proposal which was conveyed to him from this country by the packet of the 18th of May; and the reception given to this overture by Mr. Buchanan and by the President himself, was such as to leaoe ;little doubt of the ;prompt conclusion of the transaction. The'terms of this agreement will probably be submitted by Mr. .Polk to the Senate of the United States before the convention is finally drawn up for signature; but .the protracted and violent debate which took place this winter upon the notice for the termination of the existing conventioti, appears in a great me...
THE TRANSPORTATION SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 4 November 1846
THE TRANSPORTATION SCHEME. SoME fatal delusicn seems to have come over the minds of our Legislators with re ference to the important subject of the re newal of Transportation. Self interest appears to have blinded them-; the hopes of private pecuniary advantage must have steeled their hearts, and closed their ears to the voice of their fellow colonists. I-ad not some baleful infatuation seized upon them, would they on Saturday last have turned a deaf ear to the petitions of their constituents. By a reference to our report of the pro ceedings in Council on Saturday, it will be seen that the motion of M r. Cowper, that the petitions against the renewal of this system, presented by him, be printed, was negatived; and Mr. Grant seeing the fate of Mr. Cowper's motion, withdrew his for the printing of the petition from Maitland. Four petitions, having an aggregate of nearly 9000 signatures, were presented against the renewal of transportation, and not one in favour ofit; and yet when it i...

THE LATE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 4 November 1846
TIHE LATE POPE. A letter from Rome, of the 2nd May, in the Uni rers, gives the following account of the last illness of Gregory XVI.:--The malady which carried off the Pope so rapidly was a cold complicated with erysipelas and hydrocele, which was of long stand ing. On Ascension day His Holiness went as usuil to the church of St. John, but he was struck by a current of air as he was giving his benediction,and a slight rheumatic fever ensued. There were no serious symptoms, however, and on the 25th, St. Phillip's day, the Pope had resolved to go to the Cdhesa Nuova, where orders had been given for his reception. A few minutes before the time at which lhe was to leave the Vatican he became worse, and crysipelas declared itself. The physician in ordinary would not, of course, permit him to go out. The erysipelas extended to the whole of the leg round a previous wound. The vigorous constitution of the Pope kept up a hope that he would recover, and it was not until the 29th that any seri...

Liverpool, 27th June, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 4 November 1846
.:e LIverpool, 27th June, 1840. A series of public sales of wool commenced here on the 24th instant, and terminated last evening. There was a fair attendance of dealers andmanu facturers, all of whom observed great caution in their biddings, owing to the near approach of the London sales, which are announced for next week, and will reach 20,000 to 30,000 bales of colonial wool, which, in the present state of monetary al'airs, is looked upon as likely to cause a further reduction in prices. The Sydney wool was a good fair average lot, and in tolerable condition, but rather heavier than last year. A few good clean parcels sold at Is. 10id. per lb., which is about 2d. below last year's prices; the inferior and worse conditioned parcels were from 3d. to 4d. lower. The Port Phillip wool was gene rally heavy in condition, and many of the flocks were irregular in quality. These remarks also ap ply to that from Port Adelaide, which was generally ill-conditioned. The growers in these distric...

THE WOOL MARKET. The decline of prices in the 1May sales have, we learn by the subjoined circulars, also been apparent in the June sales. The "fall" has extended itself to Australian wools generally, and is about twopence per lb. rLiverpool, June 20, 1840. On tthe 24th, 25th, and 20th instant, there were offered at public sale 1200 bales Sydney, 1000 ditto Port Phillip, 800 ditto Adelaide, 550 ditto Spanish, 170 ditto United States, 270 ditto Entre Rios, 252 ditto Egyptian, 220 ditto itussian, 400 ditto Turkey, 500 ditto Sundries. Total-5302 bales. There was a fair attendance of buyers, particu larly of the smaller clothiers ; the Australian wool Was all sold, and realised prices equal to the last London sales; and it is very probable that an ad vance would have been obtained if thei next series of sales in London had not been advertised for so early a date.. ]uCnANAN, BaowNE, & Co.
