Original Correspondence. TRANSPORTATION REVIVED. To the Editor of the Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 28 November 1846
Ort?" ?dIa3 (.fýO I"rss a " rII ."f, -0 TRANSPORTATION REVIVED. 7b the Editor of the Chronicle. Sia-On reading through " The History of New SouthV'ales," publiished in January last, by Thomas Ienry Braim, Esq., of St. John's College, Cam bridge, formerly Head Master of the Episcopalian Grammar School, Hobart Town, Van Diemen's Land,'nnd now Principal of Sydney College, New South Wales, I find at volume 1, page 45, the fol .lowing " There is no more reason why convicts should not beoagain sent to this Colony, and employed on the public works of the Government, or even assigned, if necessary, to the employers of labor, than that a similar system of employment in France and Holland should be discontinued.- So long as the system produced the.reproach of the Colony's being a convict colony, which, in consequence, was placed to some extent beyond the pale of free British institutions, it was advi sable, perhaps, for the Colonists to consent to its suspension. But as we never saw the force...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
INVNNORas AND Auraoas.-Manyof the origi nators of the most useful mechanical inventions, and authors of the most valuable scientific discoveries, have been furnished by the world with a bowl of venom wherein to dip the shafts whose discharge robbery has provoked. Hargreaves, the inventor of the spinning-jenny, is a case in point. His invention-yet unrivalled in importance by any invention known in the history of the cotton trade --secured for him neither respect, affluence, nor gratitude: on the contrary he was despised, lived and died in poverty, and was actually persecuted because of his discovery. Some of the most highly distinguished labourers in the arena of literature have also had their misanthropy provoked, and have been robbed of the fruits of. their labours. But while this is the case, it is also true that the enter prising purchasers and employers of valuable inventions, and the sagacious adventurers in the publishing department of literature, have generally been remarkab...
EATING MATCH EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
EATING MATCH EXTRAORDINARY. A grand eating match has been for some time going on between the Courts of Chancery and Al dermen, the contest being which of the two courts shall devour the largest number of charities.> Some may object to this harmless pastime; but one great object of charity. is the feediefg of the hungry; and who can be more hungry than Aldermen, except lawyers ? Betting, at the outset, was two to one upon the aldermen, whose long-established reputa tion for prowess at the table had created a prestige in their favour; and one bold speculator was heard to declare that he would back them to eat up every charity in England in a twelvemonth. Their wor ships have certainly been doing pretty well. 'Tis not in aldermen or in any other mortals to command success; but they have done more, as the poet says, they have deserved it; having assuredly spared.no exertion to justify the reliance which has been placed upon them by their backers. At one bout which not long ago came o...
HOGAN'S STATUE OF THE LIBERATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
HOGAN'S STATUE OF THE LIBERATOR. (From -the London Art Union.) Hogark's statue of O'Connell, ten' feet'higb, will be finished in May , he only commenced it in De cember last; It is a grand figure. With his right arm extended, you would Imagine he is giving ut terance to the oft-repeated passage " Who would be free, Themselves must strike the blow." In his left he holds a scroll; close to the right foot is a papyrus surrounded with a wreath, and on it the Irish harp; near the left is another scroll, on which is InscrIbed`" Catholic Emancipation,". in golden letters; the likeness is striking, and as a work of art, it will add much to the artist's fame. The marble, for the size, is of most extraordinary qua lity; its colour, is" beautiful and 'without a speck, and so hard that, as they chisel it, It rings like a bell. His bust of Lord Cloncurry is, perhaps, one of the happiest works of the kind ever conceived; and one of the most beautiful over executed In Rome. It is much admired by a...
MR. HOLMES' SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
MR. HOLMES' SPEECh. IN the few observations wvhich we made in our last number upon the speech of this eminent barrister, a typographical error has occurred, which, no doubt, the discrimina tion of our readers would readily discover. But, in order, to apprise our readers of the words which we intended to have used, it may be necessary to state that in the eighth line of the second paragraph of the second column, the words " As an advocational address" appear, instead of which we in tended to use " As an advocatorial address."

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
15titist) Extracts. -o Important intelligence had been received from Mexico. The revolution against the government of. Paredes had spread to the department of Jalerio. The revolt broke out in the city of Guadalaxara and the government troops, after a short skirmish, sur rendered. The insurgents, headed by Den Jose Maria Tanez, issued a formal declaration proclaim ing Santa Anna their chief, and declaring that a new congress be elected by the people according to the electoral laws of 1824, to. frame- a new and anti monarchial constitution. The clause also provides tifit theconigress meet four months after the libe rating army should gain possession of the capital of the republic. Don Juan. Camplido was recognised as the provisional governor of ,the department. and according to accounts in the New York Picayune, under oath to repel the'agressions oftthe American state.

POLITICAL IMPORTANCE OF THE HOLY SEE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
POLITICAL IMPORTANCE OF THE HOLY SEE. (From the Tablet, June 20.) One of the" bestof all possible public Instructors" has had the goodness to inform his readers that the purpose for which, the Roman Conclave has just assembled, and is now sitting, is e very insignificant one in a political point of view; that the question of what ecclesiastic shall succeed the Camaldolese Monk in the guardianship of the Keys of Heaven, however great and important a matter it may be to the humnded and fifty rr two hundred millions who ac isowledge themselves to be his spiritual subjects, yet to the human race in general it is an affair of no political importance whatever. That such an asser tion should be made would surprise one if it came from any other than a Whig organ of opinion. The political importance of the Holy See depends not upon its fleets and armies; not upon its replen thed treasury ; not upon its warlike population; not upon its extended commerce ; not upon its mastery over the arts an...

CORONERS' INQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
CORONER'S INQUESTS. An inquest was held on Sunday last at the Sir Joseph Banks Inn, Botany, on the body of Henry Davis. It appeared from the evidence that on Sun day, the 22nd of November, the decased was cross ing Botany Bay in a sailing boat, in company with Mr. Ldngfield. The weather was' very squally at the time, and Mr. George Brett, who resides at Bo tany, observed from the shore that when the boat was about half way across, the mainsail was hauled down, but soon after hoisted again; shortly after, this he observed the boat capsize. Mr. Brett and some others immediately shoved offto the assistance of the sufferers, but on arriving at the place where the accident appeared to have occurred, nothing could be discovered either of the boat or the persons who were in her. William Ralfe, a fisherman, found the body of deceased on the beach on Saturday, where it had been washed by the tide. Dr. Tierney had viewed the body, but itswas in so advanced a state of decomposition, and so mut...

THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 2, 1846. NEW ZEALAND MISSIONARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 2 December 1846
THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 2, 1846. NEW ZEALAND MISSIONARIES. WE perceive by the papers recently received from New Zealand that a controversy has. lately been going forward between the Rev. Mr. Forest, Catholic clergyman at Auck land, and the Rev. T. Buddle, a Wesleyan missionary of the same place. It appears that on the 2nd ofSeptember, arneeting was held in the Wesleyan chapel at Auckland for the purpose of forming an "Auxiliary Bible Society ;" upon which occasion the Reverend Mr. Buddle, not content with giving utterance to his views and opinions as to the necessity orpropriety of. such a measure, went out of' his way, and introduced into his long and rambling speech a great variety of irrelevant matter fok the purpose of proving that " Popery systematically strives to keep the Scriptures from the people ;" a calumny which has been so often refuted ; so triumphantly demonstrated` to be false and malicious Rhat we really are surprised to hear it re peated in these days...
