Map of Sydney.— An excellent map of Svdnev has been published by Mr. W. H. Wells.

Catholic Extracts. MORAL EFFECTS OF CATHOLICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

Cattolit ?Bxtract0» MORAL EFFECTS OF CATHOLICISM. (From ' Four years experience of the Catholic Re-, tigion,' by a late member of the University of Oxford.) What is the popular English belief with regard to Catholic morality need not be des cribed at any length. It is clear enough that we are thought to be — to use the word in its scientific sense — monsters. We are esteemed a sort of lusus naturce. a combina tion of the great and the vile, of the rigid and tne licentious, of the benevolent and the cruel, such as is nowhere else to be found in the entire range of hurrianity. Al most every body is more or less afraid of a Catholic. A kind of power of fascination is attributed to us, such as is possessed by some of the snake species. Men of shrewd sense, calm, and not easily led away by their fears, seldom feel thoroughly safe in dealing with Catholics. They fancy that our move ments cannot be calculated upon like those of other men ; that we alternately, bind our selves as slaves, an...

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. THE MIRACLES OF RIMINI AND FOSSOMBRONE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

-SrcU0ia0tical foueiUseure. THE MIRACLES OF EIMI.NI AND FOSSOM BRONE. The following information is from a letter in the Uuivers, dated Rome, 24th July: — ???.. .? ' -? 'I have had news from Rimini. The Novena there has produced marvellous fruits. The concourse continues the same. The prodigy has not ceased, and we may almost say that it is now a permanent prodigy ; for we are assured . that the visage of- the Madonna has assumed a physiognomy all celestial. The rude work of the painter Solari is no longer to he recognised ; the hand of an angel seems to have re-touched the sketch of the pious artist. On the 16th, the Feast of pur Lady of Mount Carmel, the first stone of the new church was to he laid. They have had the., good feeling to raise it iii the same locality, and the Madonna will he honoured on the very place where she deigned to mani fest her goodness. There is also an idea of having the miraculous idea crowned ; this is a privilege of the Chapter of St. Peter. The ceremony...

Ireland. HERESIES OF THE NATIONAL BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

Erelaittr. HERESIES OF THE NATIONAL BOARD. (From the Tablet.) We referred last week to. the last Lenten Pas toral of the Bishop, of Clonfert, in which his Lord ship announced to his spiritiial subjects that^ ' in regard to schools, we must rely on our own exer tions.' Several reasons are assigned by this able l relate ior tins uoiitmsiim, wjuui ue is auuwu to have taken— not hastily or rashly— but on the most mature deliberation, and after repeated communi cations with the Government Commissioners. His Lordship did what he could to avoid the alternative of breaking with the Board ; but^ having done the best, and received no satisfaction, , he came to the conclusion which we have quoted from the Pastoral of last February. One of the reasons assigned by Dr. Derry for this course is thus stated : — ' Theo logical tracts, compiled by Protestants, and Scrip ture extracts, also similarly compiled and fashioned, are industriously circulated at the public expense, contrary to the knoion wis...

DR. PERRY AND THE BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

DR. PERRY AND THE BIBLE SOCIETY. The Anglican Bishop of Melbourne has not been converted from his heresies by his visit to Sydney, Neither the intercourse of his five Puseyite brethren, nor the prospect of their future judicial powers; when they shall have persuaded Queen Victoria to convert their ' opinions' into edicts, have had any -»flFor-f. in ropaninir t.Tifi Tflvnnrrplinn.l Pi'filaf.fi from his Ultra-Protestant propensities. The semi-Papistical atmosphere which the Right Reverend gentleman was compelled to breathe in the diocese of his Metropolitan, agreed so ill with him, that he was obliged to take strong restoratives on his return, and we are happy to report that his Lord ship's constitution has rallied very favour ably under the counteracting influence of the Presbyterians, Anabaptists, and Brownists, to whom he has had recourse. During his Lordship's sojourn at Woolloomoolloo', we had observed many apoplectic symptoms, evidently arising from the forced suppression of his...

CORONERS' INQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

CORONERS' INQUESTS. To 'bide their time' is the best practical proof the editors of public journals can exhibit of the tact and talent appropriate to their office. They should so diligently watch the course of passing events, as to seize the exact moment, when sufficient in terest has been excited by any occurrence, now trivial or aumueutai euuver iu n-seiis w promulgate the principles, moral, social or political, Which they stand pledged to advo cate. Adequate attention must be first roused or public opinion cannot be directed to any beneficial purpose. ' Buffeting the air' is a gymnastic process, as enfeebling to the combattant, as it is harmless to his an tagonist. But if ' the pressure of the time and circumstance' be valiantly and skilfully handled, a victory will be ensured to the journalist, and he will be acknowledged u- have , successfully performed the arduous :v task; he undertook. In accordance with these views we' avail ourselves of the opportunity presented by the Inqu...

THE PROPOSED AUSTBALIAN LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

THE PROPOSED AUSTBALIAN LEAGUE. (From the South Australian Register.) That federation of the Australian colonies which Earl Grey could not accomplish by legislation, a common concurrence against a common danger seems likely to achieve. The mutual jealousy wherewith the several Australian colonies till lately regarded each other is being supplanted by a more rational disposition, and they have at length dis covered that for good or ill they are indissolubly united, and that in the matter of transportation paramountly they have a community of interest. &x a meeting 01 tne Ann- .transportation Associ ation, held in Launceston on the 30th ultimo, letters were read, which showed that Victoria had promptly responded to Tasmania's appeal for the establish ment of an Anti-Transportation League. The Committee of the Melbourne Association had passed a resolution fixing the 8th of January as the date of the conference, and had opened com mnnications forthwith with Sydney and South Aust...

LAW REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

LAW REFORM. The abuses of that cumbrous and incompre-. hensible system of mystification called British Law, have been most vigorously attacked by modern legislators, and in spite of the many difficulties cast in the way of the law reformers, some good has been effected. We hail this small advantage as an omen or greater success, me dropping of water will, in time wear away a stone, and the continual agitation of this subject will doubtless, in the end, produce a radical improvement in the national code. A more admirable set of enactments than those of the law for regulating the proceed ings of Justices of the Peace, passed during the last Session of Council at the instance of the Attorney-General, was never before placed upon the Statute Book. The act might very fairly be called ' A hand-book and complete guide for Justices of the Peace.'* Not only are the duties of these officers clearly defined, but complete forms are given to them as a guide. Care, too, has been taken to strip th...

THE POLITICAL STATE OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 12 December 1850

THE POLITICAL STATE OF NEW SOUTH WALES. It is seldom that we assume the character of political alarmists, for it is a character which we are always disposed to regard with distrust. We would even avoid raising up visionary opponents and imaginary dangers, and our object now, is to lead men's minds, Tint, intn nnh anrl TironinifatA «\aIU«aA1 »^4-«^n but to calm and deliberate political reflection. And there is matter for the deepest and most serious reflection in the consideration of our present political state^ in the inquiry into our competency to deal wisely and safely with the emergencies with which we are now called on to contend. . , In a series of articles, which we have I published in this journal, during tho last I month, we have carefully examined the I capacity and political integrity of our.
