[COPY.] Commissioners Office, Southport. August 28, 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

[copy.] r ?;,. : : Commissioners' Office, Southport. Au&rust 28. 1850. Sir, -In reply to your enquiries respecting- Mr. White's process for producing gas, I beg to state that the gas produced is superior in brilliancy, puritj , and cieanlmess to coal gas, and is praised for these qualities by the consumers. The charge made to consumers is- 7s. 6d. per 1000 feet, but our con sumption being so small, is the cause of its being so much. It has been in operation here since the 12th, of November last. The cost of the building would be the same as coal gas ; our cost, which includes complete gas works and about five miles of mains, was nearly 40001. We have seventy-nine lamps, the charge made for them is ruled by two metres, fixed to two lamps, which the lamplighters light in rota tion and pm out the same, and the average of the two is the quantity charged each lamp. i am, Sir, Yours, &c, T. B. HODGINSON. To Mr. S. Milsted, Tenterden. The reader may remember that some time ...

Miscellaneous Extracts. ST. PHILIP AND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

iHi0ceUaueou0 iixtracts. , ST. PHILIP AND THE WORLD. (By one of the Oratorian Fathers.) The world is wise, for the world is old ; - Five thousand years their tale have told ; Yet the world is not happy as the world might be . Why is it ? why is it ? oh, answer me. The world is kind if we ask not too much ; It is sweet to the taste and smooth to the touch ; Yet the world is not happy as the world might be : Why is it ? why is it ? oh, answer me. The world is strong with an awful strength. And full of life in its breadth and length ; Yet the world is not happy as the world might be : Why is it? why is it? oh, answer me. The world is beautiful, one may fear Its borrowed beauty might make it dear ; Yet the world is not happy as the world might 'be : Why is it ? why is it ? oh,' answer me. The world is good in its own poor way ; There is rest by night, and high spirits by day : Yet the world is not happy as the world might be : Why is it ? ; why is it ? oh, answer me.

THE ROYAL ROTTEN ROW COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

THE ROYAL ROTTEN ROW COM MISSION. {From Dickens' Household Words.') The Commission appointed to enquire into and report upon the state of Hot ten Bow, was entirely unpaid, 'i he right honourable gentleman on whom the appointment of the Commissioners devolved, took great credit to himself that t e members of a Commis sion whose report was lively to prove of such infinite value to society, find especially to metropolitan equestrians, had under,takeri 'all the laborious duties appertaining to thei ? office without expiessing the slightest desin for remuneration or reward. (i tr; e believed,' he said, ' that all the charges connected with the performance of this great public, ..duty would begin and terminate with the mere cost of the indispensable official staff, and he. undertook to pledge his word that the expenses connected with that dfpiri merit should t\ll be settled at the lowest practicable scale.'

FOUR DAYS LATER NEWS FROM EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

FOUR DAYS LATER NEWS FROM EUEOPE. (From the New York Ccurier and Enquirer.) It is stated on the authoi'ity of a correspondent of the London Herald^ under date, Paris, Thurs day evening, that arrangements are on foot between Spain on the one side, and England, France, and Holland on the other, by which Spain, on condition of having Cuba protected by the joint action of those powers, engages to pay the debt due by her to her English, Erench, and Dutch credi tors. At several public meetings in different places, it nas been proposed to oestow a suitame testimonial of public approbation upon the brewers and dray men of Barclay and Perkins' establishment, for their treatment of Generol Haynau. As an offset, the Times states that preparations are making at Vienna to greet the general on his return with what that journal styles a ' splendid demonstra tion of loyal devotion.' The garrison is to sere nade him by torchlight, and the Emperor is to raise him to the rank of mareschal of the empir...

CATHOLIC MIRACLES. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

CATHOLIC MIRACLES. ? (From the Rambler.) An immense number of persons, both infidels and Pr6testants, especially in sober minded i ngiand and Scotland1, treat every professed Catholic miracle as a portion of the vast, gigantic system of deliberate fraud and villany whiclj they conceive to be the very life of Catholicism. From the Pops to the humblest priest who says mass and hears , confessions in an ugly little chapel in the shabbiest street of a country town, all are regarded as leagued in one wide-spreading imposture. Pius IX., ior instance, it is imagined, knows', the liquefaction of St. Januarius's blood to be a trick of the Nea politan clergy ; but he keeps up the false hood for the sake of gain and power. In like manner he has an extensive Roman laboratory ever at work for the manufacture of all the instruments of delusion which his emissaries propagate throughout Christen dom. There he makes false relics, from portions of the true cross downwards ; there he sells pardons and...

SUDDEN CONVERSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

SUDDfcN CONVKUSIONS. (From the Tablet.) There are many evidences in the world of the evil moral effects of heresy ; but there is one which is so remarkable and satisfactory in itself, that we shall venture to call the attention of our readers to it, though it may at first eight appear to be beyond our pro vince to do so. We are led to consider it at present by certain reflections made on the conversion of Lord Fielding to the Catholic Church, It is objected to him that ' his secession is scarcely reconcileable with the public pledge of continued adherence to the Established Church which be gave in two recent instances.' It vis not necessary to state what these instances are, or how re cently the public pledge was given. We are willing that they shall have been only of yesterday, so that the objectors may have the full advantage of their freshness in their own favour, and as evidences of the greatest pos sible inconsistency against him whom they are so anxious to blame.' The first th...

MIRACLE AT BRUSSELS. (To the Editor of the Tablet.) Brussels, 24th August, 850; [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

MIRACLE AT BRUSSELS. (To the Editor of the Tablet.) Brussels, 24th August,'] 830. ? Sir, — I hasten to give you some details reject ing the sudden and wonderful cure of the young .lady of whom I spoke to you yesterday evening. On the 29th day of December, 1 849, Mademoiselle Jeannette Veromcr, aged about twenty-one years, and then at Antwerp, had a very bad, fall on the kerb-stone of a footway of that town. She was immediately, lifted up, and carried into a neigh bouring house. A medical man was called in, and it appeared that in consequence of her fall she had broken the bone of her left knee in more places than one. The parents of the young lady (who resided at Brussels,) when informed of the accident, hastened to Antwerp. . They consulted a very experienced physician of the place, who had recourse to all the usual remedies, but in vain ; and he at, last left her, declaring that there was no hope of a cure. . .The parents, grieved beyond measure, had their chiid taken to Brussels....

CIVIC LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

CIVIC LEGISLATION. No amount of experience, no extent of exter- 1 nal pressure it seems, will beat sense into the v I heads of our York-street solons, or regularity I into their proceedings. Even the infusion I of new blood at the last election has done little or no service. Some of the new Coun cillors have proved little better than the old ones, and those either of the old or new stock who are able and willing to do more essential service to the citizens have all their efforts paralysed by the obstinacy, the stu pidity, and the party squabbl.ng, of the ob structionists. Occasionally a good measure1 is lugged through the Council. The formation of a Board of- Health, for instance, is one of those steps which will make mends for many blunders in Civic Legislation. But even this step was long impeded by the dilatory motions and silly debates of the Council. One of the reports brought up at Mon day's meeting contained a recommendation for the estab ishment of a Fire Brigade of twelve m...

GALILEO. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

GALILEO. In a paragraph of the Herald headed/' As tronomy for the Irish,' which we noticed last week, allusion was made to the Protes tant story of Galileo's condemnation at Rome, accompanied with the usual amount of Protestant ignorance, and with apparently the most perfect unconsciousness that the story, as ifc is ordinarily retailed, is a most wicked and contemptible tissue of falsehood. The account, as ifc used a few years ago to be given, (for the last ten years have entirely revolutionized the notions of all men of decent society, was drawn up with the view of showing the hostility of Rome to the progress of science,) and its cruelty to Galileo in particular. We need not say to those who have had the opportunity of reading books of tolerable 'reputation, that the very contrary is the truth. No court has ever done a tithe so much for the advanepment of science as the court of Rome 3 no court with a firm though gentle hand, has done half so much to repress the untimely zeal of h...

THE CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

THE CHOLERA. There is no surer mark of general imbe cility than the declining to do anything, where all cannot be done ; the. inclination to sit down with folded hands, because the best measure cannot be accomplished nor even commenced. Whoever is in earnest, and has the soul and habits of a. man, will employ himself contentedly and vigorously in the second best manner, where the best is not open to 'him. We hope most earnestly to see this wise and. manly course pursued, in our good city of Sydney with respect to precautions against the cholera. Whether it may ever visit us or not no mortal can say, we are in the hands of Providence certainly, but there' is a possibility, not to say a pro bability, of its invasion, and it would be folly and presumption- not to employ the means which Providence'itself places in our hands to prevent or mitigate the assaults of so dire a plague. Doubtless a thorough cleansing of the city, by means of an efficient system of sewerage is the best measure,...

THE IRISH STATE PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 23 January 1851

THE IRISH STATE PRISONERS. We laid before our readers, in our last issue, an extract from the Cornwall Chronicle, re garding the cruel, hard-hearted, and uncon stitutional treatment received by three of these gentlemen from Sir William Denison for an insignificant breach of .prison discip line, viz., that of paying a visit to Smith O'Brien, without. havingj^rs^ procured per mission to do so, and for which they had been previously reprimanded by the Police Magistrate. Now in addition to this, and contrary to all true principles of law, they are punished a second time for the same grievous offence, with a sentenee of three months confinemen tat Port Arthur ! ! Under this worse than Turhish despotism, we took some time to consider what steps, if any, should be taken in order, if possible, to miti gate the punishment awarded to them in this extraordinary manner by the head gaoler of Van Diemen'sLand. To appeal to Sir William Denison on the subject would be equally useless and unmeaning,...
