MURDER OF MR. MAULEVERER. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

MURDER OF MR. MAULEVSRER. ; (From the Illustrated London News.) A letter from the Coroner who investigated t'le circumstances attendant upon this murder t irows a flood of light upon this particular case. The land from which the evictions were made by Mr. Mauleverer had no less than three landlords. Each of these three gentlemen — Messrs. Hamilton, Tipping, and Jones — collected his rent separately ; ' and, in doing so,' says the Coroner, ' resorted to the proceedings usual in such cases ; and at the quarter sessions it has been customary for the agent and attorney of the Rev. Mr. Hatnil toa to obtain 60 op 80 decrees for his third of the rent, for the attorney of Mr. Jones a like number, miH rnr tViA atlnrnou nf* TV1V H'1! rvni n-v t\ifr cqiyuv fnv the one and the same year's rent. Thus the costs were multiplied threefold. The holdings are gene rally small, and average from 6s. up. The cost of each decree was 6s. lid.'

THE "OPINIONS" OF THE LATE ANGLICAN CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

THE 'OPINIONS' OF THE LATE ANGLICAN CONFERENCE. The Metropolitan suffragan of Canterbury with his 6?(i-suffragans, have put forth a document, purporting to contain their opinions on certain subjects. There is some thing very original in this proceeding, and it is obvious to ask of what use it was that so much time should be spent for such a pur pose. As every clergyman and layman has just as much right to hold his 'opinions ' as the six Bishops, there is little likelihood that a single individual of any class will be, in the slightest degree, influenced by the ex traordinary document which the Episcopal ' Conference' have issued. That every mem ber of the establishments likely to assert his right of private judgment is the more to be ex pected from the fact that one of the six Pre lates has aet an example of maintaining his own opinion, and this too by far the most important subject discussed, in opposition to the other five. If Dr. Perry; may legiti mately dissent from the other Ep...

EPITOME OF HOME NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

EPITOtfti OF liOMIi NEWS. The O'Coxmtelij Estates. — A sale of these estates took place in the county of Kerry on the 9th August under the Encumbered Estates Act. They spread over nearly 14,000 acres, and were put up in 24 lots. The bidding was at first very slack, and many of the earlier lots were withdrawn until later in the day, when they were again put lip with better success. In the whole 18 lots were sold, in sums varying from £'250 to £8000, the whole pro ducing £38,930. The incumbrances on this fine woDertv are said to be £6000. The 'French . Press.— -In France it has long boen the practice for many of the leading writers of the day to sign some of their articles ; and many of the most remarkable instances of the in- . fluence of political writing here and abroad, such as Wilkes, Cobbett, Henri Fonfrede, Jules Janin, Emile Girardin, Marrast, and others, have attracted great personal notoriety to those authors. But there nevertheless remains a large portion of every journal w...

MIRACLES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

MlKAOLJfiS. To Cohrksponbents.— The publication of any further correspondence respecting the supposed miracle, at Riniini, can be productive of no benefit. A very large portion of the colonists look upon the whole affair as a delusion, and nothing short of demonstration will induce them to hold a contrary opinion. On the other hand, there are those who consider it an article of their faith to be-. lieve in such statements as those made by the people of Rimini, and no reasoning will have any effect upon them. We shall therefore close our columns against any letters on the subject' for the present. It is very probable that a few months hence the miracle may be ex plained. — Sydney Morning Herald, Nov, 30, 1850. This further instance of the Herald* $ s' m sect' impartiality was furnished by the issue of Saturday last. It only corroborates the opinion we have always held, that it is next to impossible for men, who have aDy principles of their own, to maintain cou-. sistently the positio...

THE SUPPLY OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

THE SUPPLY OF WATER. In another article we have alluded to a local grievance existent in the city, connected with the health and comfort of the citizens ; we have pointed out that this grievance owes its origin and continuance to the neglect and apathy of the City Council. There is another grievance to which it is our duty to call attention, not less material in its effects on the health and comfort, and also prejudicial to the manners and morals of the inhabitants.. We allude to the mode in which water is supplied to the citizens, and we regret to say that this grievance is not so easy of re moval, as the one before mentioned, as the one is within the power of the City Council, the other is not, or at least not entirely so. There is no power in the Act to make it compulsory on the citizens to take the water offered by the Corporation at the rate fixed by the Council, True, the Council might exert a compulsory power by removing the fountains, but this must be a work of time, as it w...

HISTORICAL SIGHT-SEEING. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

HISTORICAL SIGHT-SEEING. By Agnes Strickland. (From Sharpens London Journal.) As one of the earliest seats of the Chris tian Church in England, where St. Felix, the Burgundian Missionary, first planted the cross, and often preaching with unbounded success, the civilizing truths of the Gospel, in the heathen district of East Anglia, fixed his metropolitan episcopal see in the year 630, Dunwich must ever be regarded as a spot of the deepest interest, even in the midst of the desolation which now surrounds that ancient metropolis of our East Anglian Kings. Dnnvvich could once boast of fifty two churches and religious houses, a mint, brazen sates, and impregnable walls with defences which were so formidable in the twelfth century, that when Robert, Earl of Leicester, and his rebel host, who took part with the young King Henry against his royal father Henry II., and intended to have possessed himself of Dumvieh, 'came near and beheld the strength thereof,' it was, 'says the ancient MS. r...

THE COAL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

THE COAL TRADE. There has of late been a great demand for Australian Coal, not only for home con sumption, but for the supply of the Cali fornian market. The latter bids fair to be as permanent and as regular as the former, and will probably increase with greater rapidity than an ability to furnish a supply, unless there are much more strenuous efforts than hitherto, for obtaining this supply. Our coal fields are known to be inexhausti ble. IS ot only the valley of the Hunter, but in many other parts of the country, and even in the immediate vicinity of Sydney, coal exists in abundance. So near as the shores of Middle Harbour excellent speci mens have been procured. Develope these resources and we shall not only most readily exchange our black diamond for the yellow ore of San Francisco, but shall have the best of the bargain.. Coal mines are always more profitable than gold mines. Two causes have retarded this enterprise — the monopoly of the Australian Company, and the conbination...

The Church, inspired By the Holy Ghost, has appointed seasons of special preparation for the two great festivals .of Easter and of Christmas, in order that her children, by previous meditation on the mysteries coiTjmemorated, may 'be disposed to celebrate them with proper dispositions. For the latter festival, which you are aware, commemorates the Birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ, we commence our preparation the first Sunday of the holy time of Advent. ' For this end it becomes us to meditate upon that exceedingly great goodness of God in which he spared not his only Son, but gave him up to redeem us, wretched sinners. In the consideration of this great goodness, the Church, alluding to the dis obedience of our first parents, exclaims, ...

FESTIVAL OF ST. PETER. AT ROME. July 1st, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

FESTIVAL OF ST; PETER. AT ROME. (From the Correspondent of tlie Catholic Standard.) July 1st, 1850. The Festival of St. Peter- has' been the first occa sion since the return of Pius IX. for the Papal Ritual to he displayed^ in all the fullness of its unrivalled splendour. Taat this should be the first solemnity for the Pontiff's re-appearance among his subjects in his character most essentially sacred, seems peculiarly appropriate. High Priest a's well as Sovereign Prince, he presents himself on this festival more peculiarly in the character of the crowned successor to St. Peter, deriving far more dignity from that inheritance than from the donations of Constantine, and Pep in, and Charle magne. . .'????? The vigil of this festival is the only occasion when the Pontiff himself sings Vespers (or rather, as the conventional term should- be understood, chants the prayers at Vespers) in St- Peter's ; and on this, as on other high festivals;, he is carried on the portative throne with th...

THE SANITARY STATE OF THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

THE SANITARY STATE; W THE I CITY. ; ' '? ;;; ; During the late Session of the Council aii - Act was passed ' for the better Sewerage, Cleansing and Drainage of the City of Syd ney, and to promote the health, of the in habitants thereof.'* As soon -as the act was published we carefully examined its provisions in detail, explaining the important duties and large powers which were given to the Council under it ; and we further expressed our regret that the Government had not thought proper to afford some assistance to the Cor poration, which would render the per formance of those duties and the exercise of those powers less burdensome in a pecuniary point of view, than they otherwise must be. But the immediate provision of measures for securing the health of the city is of such, paramount importance, that even pecuniary considerations must give way before them, and, whether the Sewerage Act ought to be carried out at once in its integrity or not, it is quite certain that something must...

THE MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

THE MAYORALTY. The character and the standing of the chief Officer of any town or city are taken gene rally as a fair index of the sound or unhealthy state of the ' body politic5' over which he presides. Hence the inhabitants of every corporate town, on whom the election of their chief officer devolves, should carefully1 examine into the moral and civic qualifica tions of the several candidates who may aspire to the high and important post of the Mayoralty. None of the various duties which claim the attention of the .conductors of the public press is of a more delicate and unpleasant, but at the same unavoidable nature, than that which requires from them a candid and unflinching avowal of opinion regarding the fitness or unfitness of candi dates for the civic chair. ' The standard' we would recommend the citizens to take, in order to ascertain the fitness or unfitness of the aspirants to the Mayoralty of Sydney for the ensuing year, is that which every prudent man would take when ab...

RELIGION AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 5 December 1850

RELIGION AND POLITICS. We hope the friends of the Freeman's Journal will give -us credit for sincerity when we assure them that we are anxious to comply, to the utmost of our power, with the suggestions conveyed to us from time to time as to the manner of conducting our paper. We are always ready to act upon such suggestions, so far as we can do so with out sacrificing the great object for which our Journal was established. The want of a Ca- tholic newspaper had been long felt. For nearly two years there had been no medium through which we could reply to calumnies and -misrepresentations, or advocate the poli tical and social interests of the Catholic body. Matters immediately affecting the interests of the Church were discussed by the Legislature, and we had no means of maintaining our principles or asserting our rights. Ib was to provide what was so much needed that this Journal was undertaken, and the name it bears was assumed, because the majority of the Catholics in the colony ...
