OPINIONS CONCERNING THE SYNOD BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
OPINIONS CONCERNING THE SYNOD 3BILL. .. The Freemnans Journal says--The milk-and-water style in which we nmanage our Catholic affairs has, no doubt, furnished tihe Bishop of Sydney with grounds for acting as he has done in the matter of. this Bill now before the Upper Hoiuse. Had we been vigilant and active in Cathblic deveclopment-- had we manifested a business-lilke eagerness in.the political questions which naturally cl'imed our at tention, and sometimes our interference, on the ground of their connexion with Catholicity, notions such as the union of Church and State, would never have entered into the brains of our opponents. It is not too late, and we really ought to bestir ourselves, both clergy'and laity, in this matter. It is true our Church at all times is safe; whilston the other hand the Protestant Church in Australia, alarmed for its vitality, flies for protection, as is its wont, to the SLtate ; but that is no reason why we should tamely submit, and even court by our apa...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
SThe,subjects of Education and Religion are at present ,most prominently before the country as questions of popular and political interest; almost every mind. tosome extent is brought into contact withl them, so that the irreligious as well as re ligious,-the educated as well as the unlearned, make theni common property, if not on their own mnerits,,on the ground.of their political influence with which-it is every man s right to meddle. As to the questions-themselves we are quite sure none can bemore important, while to secure general satisfaction few can be more dificult on which to legislate; the importance of the snbject being the cause. pf the difficulty. When we look on society in its present .onglomerate state, with numerous interests, conflicting principles and opinions on education, politics, religion and everything else, can it he wondered at that the most profound legislative ability becomes baffled. It is no dis credit.to the legislator as such when a cource of policy on"...

MR. COWPER'S EDUCATIONAL SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
AiR. COWPER'S.EDU .CA.TIONAL SCHEME. SWe (Hraeld) have been requested to mention that the following notice was read in St. Mary's Cathe dral, and the other Roman Catholic churches of Sydney, on Sunday last, tile 16th instant: "The faithful of this congregation, and of the city of Sydney generally, are requested to abstain fr'om signing petitions which, it is said, are in cir culation in favor of the Education Bill at present before the Parliament of the colony. -. The said Bill proposes nothing clear and defi-? nite, but leaves, in fact, absolute power in the hands of the casual Executive of the day. ,Its temper might be wholly Protestant, it might be wholly latitudinarian. Tihe Bill is, therefore, neither satis factory nor expedient, and by Catholics must be opposed. " Nothing is hereby said against the impartiality of intention tlhat may have guided the proposers of this-Bill, nor indeed against the salutary working of what is called the Privy Council system, as it is at this mome...

THE PUBLIC LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
THE PUBLIC LANiDS. (FROM TIHE EMPIRE.) We have been requested to publish approximate returns, giving some idea of the extent and nature of the lands that would, in the er ent of the Ministe rial Land Bills passing into law, be open for sale on and after, say 1860, and with reference to which mere purchase by selection or otherwise will be a withdrawal from lease of the quantity purchased, and of three times more for pastruage right. Lands under lease for fourteen years, and expiring Ist January, 1856, do not appear hero, because such lands could only be open for sale under the provisions for reserves in the Orders in Council. The 22, 990, 400 acres in the intermediate dis tricts, and the 14,587,060 acres let under 22nd of February, 1858, leases, are all lands that have never before been open for sale, except to squatters under pre-emptive right of purchase, but which under the bills, would, of course, be open to sale by selection or othrwise.. .
TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
TO TlIE EDITORI OF TIIE KIAbA EXAMINEIR. StIn,--Can you tell when our Corporation intends to call for tenders for the assessment of tbo municipality ? because I know there are several practical men who are waiting to bring their ability to test. Is it not rather strange that there should be any delay in settling the mode of proceeding ? There ought to be no difilculty ; but I do not wonder, if what I hear be true respecting the ideas ouggested at the last meeting, that there should be considerable dimficulty about it. The method, or methods, proposed, seem to me altogether beoldo the mark, and remid ma of a kwntlenan who had a great opinion of the value of Irls property ; but to be satis fled of its actual value, he teok the opinion of all his confidential friends, and then calling in the aid of a practical appraiser, set him to work to give thie true valule, aceompanyinsg the commission itlh a lilst efr'ec. eal and dried; whereupon, the practical man, calculating the value of the c...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
TO TUE EDITOR OF T?E KIAMA EXAMINEIR. gm,-By giving Insertion to the following remarks on the speech of the Rev. J. Kinross, delivered in the Free Church, Klama, on the 11th instant, on the education question, of whlich a report appeared in your lssue'of the 15th instant, you will confer an obligation on me. The rev. gentleman thinks it unkind that the friends of the National system of education should be charged with despising God's Word by excludiog it by act of Parliament from them ellools. But the rev. gentleman failed to bring forward any valid argumentto exonerate them from this charge. The rev. gentleman thinks tiere could be little harm in pub lislheg "portions of the Scriptures;" and further remarks, that iceth books forming the Now Testament Canon were not collected into one volume till nearly two hundred years after Christ." I would aske is'this any reason why the Bible should be mutilated in the manner spoken of? Is any Christian minister afraid of the Bible getting into...

PARLIAMlENTAR Y INTELLIGENCE. , ABRIDOGED FROM THE BYDNEY PAPEOSB. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. -nunstiaY. SCROWN LAW OFFICERS ADVISING MAGISTRATES. MIr. Gray, in pursuance of notice, asked tihe Attorney General, "If it was the practice of the Crown law officers of the colonyto decline giving advice upon questions submitted by the benchels of magistrates in the Interior; and; if so, upon what grounds." The Attorney-General replied, as a matter of strict law, hle was informed, the right had always been deniied, but as a matter of courtesy it had been the invariable practice of the Crown law officers to afford them informa tion. In cases, Ihowever, in which a bench of magis trates were divided amongst themselves as to whether or not they should commit a particular prisoner or defend ant, the Attorney-General alwvays refised to give an answer, on the ground that it would be an uinwarrantable interference witlh the discretion which magistrates ought to exercise.

WESLEYAN STOCK BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
WVESsLEYAN STOCK BAZAAnI.-W?o perceive by an advertisement in our present issue, that a bazaar of this description is to beheld in Kiama on Thursday, the 3rd November. It will consistof cows, heifers, pigs, and others of the quadruped kind, all of which are expected to be of the first class. Mr. Waldron has generously consented to be the auctioneer on the occasion; and we have little doubt as to the success of thi novel undertaking. It is certainly a now thing, at lea~t in this colony, as we don't re member having heard or read of anything of the sort before; it.pay therefore be expected that its novelty will.secsre considerable success. The animals to be disposed of will be' collected in the paddock adjoining the Wesleyan Chapel, where the sale will take place at 12 o'olock on the day above mentioned.

WESLEYAe BAZAAR.--Wo understand that the Ladies' Fancy Bazaar in connection with the Wes Icyan Church in this place, is to commence on Mon day, the 31st instant, and will continue the two following days. The booth adjoining the Wesleyan Chapel is to be fitted up for the occasion, and we have no doubt the ample assortment of useful and fancy goods offered for sale at moderate prices will induce much liberal patronage to the industrial benevolence of the ladies, more especially this being the first of the kind in Kiama.

POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, 20TH OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Examiner — 22 October 1859
POLICE COURT. TaHrisDAY, 20TH OCTOBER. (Before Messrs. Waugh, Chairman;n Gray, -Hind Smarsh, Fry, and Kendall, J.P.'s) Robert Issell Perrott summoned Frederick Ferner for illegally overholding a 50 acre farm at Jamberoo. It appears Ferner never got any lease or agreement in writing, and the defendant held possession for four years; and in accordance with the verbal agree ment.made between plaintiff's mother and Ferner, he had still four years more to complete his time, which was eight years. The case was defended by Mr. Waring, who submitted to the bench that this was a parole more than three years, which made defendant a yearly tenant, and would require six months' notice. Case dismissed. Mark Cassidy pleaded guilty to a charge of drunkenness. Fined 17s. 6d. and costs. John MI'Namee, for drunkenness in the streets of Ki(ama. Fined £2 and costs, which.was paid.

SPORTUGAL. PLUNERAL OF THE LATE QUEEN OF PORTUGAL. STihe above toolkplace on the 21st July. "There was a large atteiidance of the people," says a letter fromLisbon,. ' and the expressions .of. grief aind1 sympathy. ivere. universal. Mourning is to. be worn for six months, and nothing but black is now to be seen in the stleets. A very general opi nion prevails that the queen was not well treated by the court physicians,.and that if there had been a more timely application of the remedies which were afterwards used she would have escaped. It is said that she retained her faculties to the last, and took a long and affectionate fare well of the King, lier hlusband, who was so much overcome that hlie had to be led out of tihe room. The next day the body lay in state, and then took place the ceremonial of kissing the hand of the dead Queen; a custom which dates from the time.of-Don Pedro the Cruel, who obliged his court to pay. this homage to the remains of the .ldvely Ignez de Castro."
