-9 LIKE MASTER LIKE MAN.-Colonel Dickson, when he commanded the 42nd regiment, was one day su perintending the punishment of an old soldier, who had been sentenced to receive corporal punishment in consequence of being, as he said, a wuee foe. The man complained much under the infliction, and begged frequently to be taken down ; but the Colonel showed no disposition to remit any part of the sen tence. Oh, Colonel," exclaimed the culprit, making another appeal to his commander's humanity, " take me down, Colonel; for, ye ken, I'm just a puir auldldrucken body LIKE YOURSEL." The justice of this remark was .universally admitted, and military discipline could hardly restrain the risable faculties of oflicers and men.-Marshall on the condition of soldiers. UNSATISFACTORY ANSWERS.-The following dia logue between a brow-beating lawyer and a witness under examination, is given in Wilsby's ' Lives of Eminent English Judges, in an examination con ducted by Mr. Dunning (Ashburton) while lie wa...
PENNY-A-LINERS' PHRASE-BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
~EINN1Y-A-LINERS' PHRASE-BOOK. .(From the Almanac for the Month.) P?aENN-A-Lzzeas are a class of people so called: because 'they are paid thlree-halfimene a line for what they write. Their meals are Accidents, their;boa il and lodging Offences, and their clothes'are generally got:out:of a Fire. These.gentlemenhlave a phrase= elogy exclusively their bwn. The terms most in use-are printed in 'tile 'following Phrase Book, for the'use of persons who read newspapers, and are puzzled sometimes to understand them: DEvoucnIo ELEMENT means Fire; as, "Tlihe devouring element, now lashing to the monument as if in anger, now running round it as if in sport, soon razed it tO :the ground'?.'." However, the " de vouring element" Is. not applied to the fire, coal, or coke,.or slate, or brick which burns in the grate.

THE LISPING FOP AND THE UNSOPHISTICATED BELLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
TIIHE LISPING FOP AND THE UNSOPHIS TICATED BELLE, Many evenings have not- elapsed since music with its voluptuous swell resounded in one of our public saloons, and" Bright lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men." Aye I women as fair and men as brave as ever assembled to pay court to Dame Terpsichore. It was on the occasion of one of our public balls ; and all that gaiety and variety prevailed which are so peculiarly characteristic of elegant intercourse and refined society in ,New Orleans. In that set, the dark eyed Creole, of the languishing, dreamy look, whose movements were as graceful as the undulation of the wave at eve-time. in summer : in this, the blue eyed girl of the North, with auburn locks and agile motion. As a general rule, the dresses were faultless : at least they were fashionable-and great taste was bestowed on the dressing of the hair. Of the male members present it is unnecessary to speak at any length : they were as neat and as spruce as polished patent leathe...
THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1846. ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MOVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
THE SYDNEY CHRONICLE. SA'URDAY, DECEMIIBER 5, 1840. ANTI-TRANSPORTATION MOVE MENTS. Wi. are glad to see the spirit which animates our fellow-colonists on the subject of the Renewalof Transportation; and we are still better pleased to observe,.that the. course which their opitnions have taken ruis in the right channel. The apathy which we at one time thought pervaded the colonial mind on nearly all great questions, has, we are happy to say, been completely shaken off;' at least on this subject.; and never was there any question more widely, more deeply, or more earnestly discussed, than has been this question of transportation. .We are pleased too to be able to record, that ex citing as the topic is, and inflammable as are.the.mnterials with which it is surrounded, its discussion has been, marked by that moderation and calmhness which cannot fail to make a great and favourble impression on the minds of our countrymen in Eng land. Though the ,question has been so much`lhandled, it has...
RECENT DOINGS OF THE NATIONAL EDUCATION BOARD IN IRELAND [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
RECENT DOINGS OF THE NATIONAL EDUCATION BOARD IN IRELAND (From the Tablet, Juno 13.) The man' who reposes a permanent trust in a 'Government ..is .not generally regarded as the brightest specimen of wisdom. But when the man happens to be a Catholic and the Government anti Catholic, it is a truism to say that however wise the man may be in other respe:ts the confiding and unsuspicious credu!ity, which. leads him to repose trust where he should hoard up the. most jealous suspicion, is not nierely not very niuch like wisdom, but has a far closer resemblance to its oppiosite. God knows that if trust or -confidence of this kind be reposji iinasy quiarter, we have not tob'answer for the mistake. We have wearied our, readers with alarms and 'warnings.

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
rttisb Exztracts;. -o It.is stated in a French scientific paper that Si beria contains gold in such abundance that its dis coyery is likely to produce a financial revolution in Europe, similar to that which took place on the discovery of Peru. In the period of the last four teen, years, the produce of the gold mines in that country is said to have doubled.. Eleven thousand persons are daily employed in washing mineral; and three times the number could be so occupied if thielriands could be found. Nothing but this want of labourers, adds our authority, prevents the mar kets of Europe from being filled with the gold of this rich deposit.-Nation. The German papers mention a mysterious and extraordinary affair, bearing intimately upon the present position of the Imperial Government, which has also been announced in the French journals : As the courier sent by the French embassy at Rome was on his route for France, lie was robbed of his despatches; and the robbery is imputed to the Aus t...

On the motion of Mr. MAYNE, Major LoKYeva took the chair', and having briefly addressed the meeting on the subjecton which they met, CHavR.eL Cowrsa, Esq., M.L.C., rose and in a speech of considerable length, replete with sound argument and condemnatory, in .the strongest terms, of the revival of so obnoxious a measure as the renewal of transportation, moved " That this meeting having carefully considered the Dispatch of the Right Hon.

RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION. MEETING AT NEWCASTLE. (Abridged from the Maitland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
RENEWAL OF TRANSPORTATION. MEETING AT NEWCASTLE. (Abridged from the Maidtind Mercury.) The adjourned meeting to consider theproposed renewal of transportation was 'held, pursuant to advertisement. at the Court-house, on Saturday, the 28th ult. It was well attended, there being at one time from,200 to 250 persons present. 'The chair was taken about half-past one o'clock by J. Crum mer, Esq., Warden of the district. Before proceeding to the immediate 'business of the meeting, some discussion took, place as to the right of non-residents of the district to take part. in'the piroceedings." The CulalnMA said the meeting was called for the residents of Newcastle, Stockton, and parts ad jaccnt, and he considered every person present, as a colonist of New South Vales,.had an undoubted right to express his opinion on the subject they had met to consider. He hoped all personality would be avoided ; that good feeling and harmony would prevail throughout; and that they would grant a fair hearing...
A WHIG PREMIER. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
A WHIG PREMIER. (From the Nation, June 27.) We care little for ministerial opinion oulrselves. We are neither expectants of plate, patronage-mon gers, nor other cormorimants of a people's resources; We build not selfish hopes on national perjury, and therefore are disposed to treat all English Ministers alike. For some of them personally e haiveo respect, for others indifference but for.liliiiiwho measures every great thought by the finality" ofhis own mind -who, nods fearing, to coerce, and not daring to insult Irishmen. as he once coerced and insulted, would cajole and use them ; who, plumply declaring his determined opposition to Irish independence, would leave it an " open question" in the fooli?h' hope of converting, the unelected Parliament of Ireland into a gymnasium of incipient servility -for such a man, we are restrained from express ing our prevalent feeling, through motives of p6o liteness alone. Lord John Russell carries his finality even into his tergiversation. When l...

,€'aitlant. -0o (From the Alaitland Alereury.) Tns IHUNTER IRIVEa.--Late on the night of Monday, or ea ly on'Tuesday morning, the river Hunter rose to the height of some eight feet at the crossing place at Melville. The body of water that came down was very great, and showed that the late rains had extended to a considerable distance into the interior. At Mr. Gordon's farm, near Tangorin Mountain, the river had risen twelve feet. Yesterday evening the river' had risen at Maitland about five feet. SnoceINo DE ATH.-An old man, named William Connell, better known as the" Commodore," who 'was upwards of seventy years of age, and who had been for the lastsix or seven years in the employment of Mr. Mitchell, of Melville, obtained permission on Monday to go from the farm to Maitland on business.

Original Correspondence. SYDNEY COLLEGE. To the Editor of the Chronicle. "Ubi lapsus?—quid feci?" [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 5 December 1846
" SYDNEY COLLEGE. " To the Editor of the Chronicle. "Ubi lapsus? - quid feci?" Sir, - About three or four months ago there appeared in the papers an advertisement for a Head Master for the, above Institution, and the public were informed by a subsequent advertisement that Mr. D. Patterson had been appointed to that res- ponsible office. May I, in justice to the character of the last named individual, ask one or two questions? Why is he (ipso facto) deposed, to make room for a certain member of an Entomological Society, whose own appointment was decidedly cancelled by the aforesaid advertisement? Whether Dr. Braim has &nbsp; not therefore laid the flattering unction to his soul without any very substantial grounds? And whether &nbsp; in the parade of visiting cards, grateful advertise- ments, and notice of arrivals - not, to speak of writing to the parents of the pupils - the learned and courteous doctor has not been a little premature? &nbsp; Has he, to justi...
