SILK. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
SILK. ;-/. The greatest difficulty in a pastoral commu nity is to find profitable employment for women and children.' This difficulty has been particularly felt in the Squatting Dis tricts of New South Wales. Hence their comparative barbarism. Families arc 'en- cumbrances.' The stock-keepers and the shepherds of the Australian wilds are worse off than the wandering hordes of Tartar}^ They are forbidden the comforts of the do mestic hearth. The earnings of persons so employed are insufficient for the main tenance of a family, and there is no way in which the wife or children can add to the common stock. Now and then indeed a shepherd's wife may obtain rations, and per haps a little rnonej as a hut-keeper j but the life is a miserable one and the employment precarious. ' . The absurd regulations to which we have alluded in a former article, prohibiting the culture of any produce for sale or exchange, have a considerable share in this. But there is still means of employment which might...

EXILEISM. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
EXILEISM. There was a feature in the sitting of the Central Criminal Court which is just com pleted, to which we are obliged to call atten tion. Out of about twenty cases tried, the criminals in four of them were exiles from Port Phillip, who had been convicted of co lonial offences, and had served their colonial sentences at Cockatoo. In all these cases, the convicts were voun^ men of respectable appearance, education, and address, and the offences all displayed singular evidence of design and talent for villainy. They were also on a large scale — three being the issue of extensive series of forgeries calculated to defraud indiyiduals to a large extent, and the other a burglary de liberately planned, with the view of robbing an old and helpless man, residing in the bush, of £300, which it was rumoured he had ac cumulated. In the latter case extensive personal violence was used, and the inhuman perpetrators deliberately made a fire and threatened to roast their victim if he did not ...
THE ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
THE ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MOVEMENT. I he Association for opposing the resumption of Transportation was formed under the roost favourable auspices. It was formed at a time when the whole burthen of public opinion had been cast into the AntiTrans P°nat,onist scale. Thus supported, its means *« vigors action were as great as the pres smg necessifc}es which called it into existence. »e do not mean to bring a charge of supmeness against the gentlemen on' whom We management of this body has been vested, bneh a charge 'would be neither just nor tme. But although the committee have d ilt'Tr^ the* mi*n°tf Perhaps, have Played all that activity which the impor *»» of the task they had undertaken de » jed at their hands.

THE WOULD AND THE CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
THE WORLD AiSID THE CHURCH. The world believes in the world's ends as the greatest of goods ; it wishes society to be governed simply and entirely for the sake of this world. Provided it could gain one little islet in the main, one foot upon the coast, if it could cheapen tea by sixpence a pound, or make its flag respected among the Esquimaux or Otaheitans, at the cost of a hundred lives and a hundred souls, it would think it a very good bargain. What does it know of hell ? it disbelieves it j it spiis upon, it abominates, it curses, its very name and notion. Next, as to the devil, it does not believe in him either. We next come to the flesh, and it is free to confess that it does not think there is any great harm in follow ing the instinct of that nature which, perhaps it goes on to say, God has given. How \ could it be otherwise ? who ever heard of the world fighting with the flesh and the devil ? Well, then, what is its notion of evil ? Evil, says the world, is whatever is an off...
NON-JURORS. [The following extracts are from Father Newman's Lectures on the Difficulties of Anglicanism.] [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
NON-JURORS. [The following extracts are from Father Mewman's Lectures on the Difficulties of Anglicanism.] H.ow great and mysterious are the doc trines which they teach ! and how proudly they appe'al to primitive times, and claim the . ancient Fathers ! Surely, as some one says, ' in Laud is our Cyprian, and in Taylor is our Chrysostoin, and ail we want is our Athanasius'. Look, my brethren, at the history of the Non-jurors^ and you will see what these divines were worth. There you will see that it was simply their position, their temporal po. sessions, their civil digni nities, as standing round a King's throne, or seated in his .great council, and not their principles, which mad© them what they were. Their genius, learning, faith, whatever if was, could not have stood by themselves ; these qualities had no substance, for, when the State abandoned them, they' shrunk at once, and collapsed, and ceased to be. These qualities were not the stuff out of which a Church is made, though th...

WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
WOLLOMBI. (From a Correspovdent. ) Although aware that my report must » ppear some what out of season, owing to our mail leaving here once a week only, f--r Sydney, yet despite this un avoidable delay, I cannot reprf;soa desire to chronicle in your paper some account of' a visit jecently made to this district by our Venerable Archbishop. The inhabitants of more densely peopled districts cannot conceive the depp sensations caused by such nn event in this secluded and tranquil locility. An estimate may perhaps be partly formed of ibe zeal by which the Catholics were animated. rob-?n ir. is stated that many of them, on this occasion, attended from distances varying1 from one to. fifteen miles, leaving th«ii busy harvest fields where the nunds are bard-y sufficient to secure our abundant harvest. His Giace, in company with the- Very Rev. (he Vicar-General, and the Rev. Dean Lynch, entered the township on the evening of Monday, the 2nd mst. were met on their approach ih tber at about six...
SCANDALS IN CATHOLIC COUNTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 19 December 1850
SCANDALS IN CATHOLIC COUNTRIES. Now, this being considered, you will see how. many, things take place of necessity, which to ' Protestants seem shocking, arid which could not be avoided, unless it had been promised that the Church should con sist of none but the predestinate ; nay, un- ? less, it consisted of ,none but the educated and refined. It is the spectacle of super natural faith acting upon the multitudinous mind of a nation ; of a divine principle dwelling in the myriad of characters, good, bad, and intermediate, into which the old stock of Adam grafted into Christ has de veloped. If a man sins grossly in a Pro testant country, he is at once exposed to the temptation of disbelief; and he is irritated when he is threatened with judgment to come. Men are ever irritated with conclu sions and inferences ; Protestants hold that there is a hell as the conclusion of a syl logism ; they prove it from Scripture j it is from first to last a point of controversy, and an opinion ; and ...
