FIRST COMMUNION OF THE COUNT OF PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

FIRST COMMUNION OF THE COUNT OF PARIS. The scene appears most strongly and strangely to have impressed the minds of those present: the old King leaned on living crutches, nnabfo to walk, I am told, without the aid of the arms of two friends ; the Queen was less failed, but looking old and weak ; the Duchess of Orleans fully inspired with the dig nity and reverence of the occasion ; and. the crowd of the short-lived noblesse of the Phillippian period manifesting no less inteiest. It was an interesting occasion. The legitimate pretender to the throne of France is the heir of one removed by a violent death, inflicted by a democratic and popular agency ; while the Orleans heir is the son of a father no less suddenly removed, by an accident of no such cha racter, but still removed by the visitation of Heaven, and the sorrow of a people who had no respect for his race. Eicli has his parly in France, and it is impossible to say how long the present temporary ar rangement may hold, or how s...

CATHOLIC JOURNAL IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

CATHOtTC JOUKNAL IN CANADA. As. at the presrnt lime, journalism is a formidable power, which Hell uses, unfortunately with loo much success, in ? scattering over the world impious and 'iangnrouj doctrines. Religion finds herself necessi lHte-l to make use of Ibis weapon a«H.ii\»t calumny and error. Moved by the rvquiirnu'ius of the age, and Ht the request of several l-iymen, deeply afflicted in seeing that Catholicity has i ot in Canada a single organ in the English language to repel the incessant HttHcks of Protestant papers, we have come to the following conclusion : — isi. we npprovc witn an our Henri, as a worn highly advantageous to religion, the publication of a religious paper in the English language, provided th«t it be detached from every political party. 2nd.

Our readers would hardly wish us to go in detail throtig'i Dr. Whately's little book of Evidences quiie on the scale on' which we have commenced ; other wise, if one personal pronoun and two sentences have given occasion to a commentary of a column and a-half, it is not easy lo say where we should draw bridle in commenting on a hundred pages.

@4mr$tt{ StuiUtgeme. HYDRO-CAEBON GAS, A public meeting was held on Thursday last at the Royal Hotel, in pursuance of advertisement, to discuss the merits of this invention. James Norton, Esq., was placed in the chair on the motion of Mr. A'Beckett. The chairman spoke generally of the wonderful, invention of gas for illumination. He recollected ' the sensation caused by its introduction.

This new society was intended to compromise the remnants, wherever they/may be scattered, of every club, association, and conspiracy known in Franca or in other coun tries since Lsdu, ana to lay the foundation or cue more vast body destined to woik the overthrow of every established Government in Europe, and whose efforts are, in particular, to be directed against Crowned head*..

CHRISTMAS FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

CHRISTMAS FESTIVITIES. We wish our readers a very happy and a very 'merry Christmas.' And we trust that while men lay aside for a short time the dull cares of this plodding world, in order to celebrate the glorious event of the birth of a world's Redeemer, they will solemnity of the occasion, and in the meek spirit of Him who came down from His 'Throne on High' to raise up the fallen Children of Adam to a seat with Himself in His Heavenly Kingdom. We are re peatedly exhorted in Holy Writ ' to rejoice,' for that our ' Redemption is at hand,' 'but we are also enjoined to rejoice unto Sobriety. Unfortunately there is a besetting disposi tion in the human heart to run into excess, when called upon to join in any innocent and praiseworthy Festivity, and to turn the cheerful and animating relaxations of Chris tian Holidays into scenes of drunkenness and degrading indulgence. This perversion of holy times and things is but too frequently witnessed on each recurring Christmas. The earnings ...

DR. LEICHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 26 December 1850

DR. LEICHARDT. Some weeks ago we strongly urged upon the Government the absolute necessity of taking some immediate steps for tracing out and re lieving the enterprising Dr. Leichardt and his party, if they should have escaped the perils of the wilderness. Since then, other journals nave roiiqwed in our wake. JNone of these remonstrances, however, appear to have produced any effect. So far as we have yet been able to learn, there is no intention ou the part of the Government to send forth any expedition for the purpose alluded to. As we shewed in our former article there is great probability that Dr. Leichardt and his companions are even now at Port Essiag ton or in its immediate vicinity. It was his avowed intention to make for that part of the coast, in the event of being unable to penetrate the deserts of the interior. He reckoned upon finding what ho left behind — a thriving settlement, and a hospitable garrison. He calculated upon Port \s$in« tou us a haven where he could find ...
