Northern Star


(1) An Irish revolutionary newspaper, published in Belfast from July 1792 through May 1797. It was the organ of the United Irishmen society.

(2) The main organ of the English Chartists from the late 1830’s to the early 1850’s; the first issue appeared in November 1837. The founder and editor in chief was F. O’Connor, and G. Harney joined the editorial staff in the mid-1840’s. The paper reflected the views of the revolutionary wing of Chartism. At the height of the Chartist movement its circulation exceeded 50,000. Between 1843 and 1850 the Northern Star published articles and letters contributed by F. Engels. After the Revolution of 1848–49, under the influence of the reformist vacillations of O’Connor (and of Harney after 1851), the Northern Star lost its revolutionary orientation.

Searching PAST the chimneys way up high Round the steeple to the sky Way above the world so far Searching for our special star Come my darling fly with me Over mountain, over sea Across the forest and the moor We will search for Heaven's door Leaving this world far behind We will search for peace of mind Looking near and looking far We'll search for our wandering star Our two hearts will beat in tune As we float on past the moon To the edge of space and time Your tender hand I'll hold in mine We will travel ever far Past the Plough and Northern Star Past the Crab and Gemini Ever onward through the sky When at last we find our place Somewhere there in outer space Never more we'll need to roam For at last we'll be at home Kenneth Jones, Old Swan
