Co[?]our Readers. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
To our Readers. We beg to express our best thanks to our ad- vertising friends, for their favors in this our first number, which have exceeded our most sanguine hopes.

Local Intelligence. A meeting took place yesterday, pursuant to announcement, in the market place, for he pur- pose of adopting measures to relieve the nu- merous persons, who are now in distress, in conseqence of the high price of of provisions. Want of space obliges us to omit our report of the proceedings, but it shall be given in our next. We are also under the necessity of postpon- ing our report of the proceedings of the meet- ing, which took place yesterday, at the Royal Hotel, for the purpose of forming a Hunter's River Steam Navigation Company. We observe that a Benefit Society has &nbsp; been established at Parramatta, entitled the Parramatta Friendly Society. It is on the plan, and ruled by the same laws, as the Sydney Benefit Society. A great number of persons have enrolled themselves as members, and the Society presents every appearance of being firmly established; and we have no doubt its utility will be soon experienced.— Commercial Journal.

Van Diemen's Land. Corn Market. July 18. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
Van Diemen's Land. Corn Market. July 18. The transactions in the Wheat Market are still but inconsiderable. Holders generally &nbsp; &nbsp; are firm ; and in some instances we have heard of 20s being refused ; again we know of sales as low as 18s for samples of similar quality. The quotations furnished us from the Union Mills, it will be seen, remain at from 18s to 19s We have given our quotations at 18s to 19s as we find that buyers generally offer no more, and that at this price sales have been effected. Bread has fallen to 1s 10d and 4p, and we hear rumours of further reduction being about to he made.

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
To Correspondents. JUSTITIA misapprehends us on the question of the Emancipists. Our design is not to "con- found virtue with vice," but to put down unjust pretensions to the former, while we reprobate the latter wherever it may appear, and in whatever shape. Believing that neither is hereditary, and that the best man is liable to fall, we assure our much respected Correspondent, that we are fixed in our determination to uphold "—— that truth least understood: &nbsp; Man is most great when struggling to be good." We thank AMICUS for his suggestion—it shall be attended to. Z. Parramatta. We have received several com- munications respecting our correspondent's towns- woman. That the information is true we have no doubt ; but we must have the whole channel through which the facts may be traced, before we can couple her name with that of the person re- ferred to. &nbsp; We have received several suggestions from parties whose opinions we highly value. We thank them and be...
Education. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
Education. We copy the annexed document with pleasure. It conveys to us the assur- ance that the Governor is desirous of preserving the spirit of the Church Act in his intended measure; and if the in- tolerance of a party has, as it were, compelled His Excellency to adopt a system of Education, which being es- sentially Protestant, will exclude the children of Catholics from its benefits, we have here the promise, and we re- ceive it gratefully, that our just claims will not be overlooked. For our part, we are convinced that all Christians have a sufficient number of principles in common to enable them to confer upon their children the rudi- ments of education, upon a uniform plan, without any compromise of their respective tenets; and, we are equally of opinion, that such an uniformity would be more efficacious and benefi- cial in its results, than any system which is divided, and therefore wea- kened in its operation. But if it be the determination of the Protestant Clergy to have...
THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, AUGUST 2, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, AUGUST 2, 1839. A sufficient proof of the necessity of establishing in this Colony a vehicle for Catholic sentiment is furnished by the fact, that, while we are engaged in getting up our first number, the Editor of one of the Sydney Journals is call- ing upon his readers to beware of " dealing with Roman Catholic trades- men, or employing Roman Catholic servants," on, the ground that "ac- &nbsp; cording to the principles of the Roman Catholic religion" these persons may rob their neighbours with impunity. That charges of so atrocious a nature, in which every Catholic must feel himself implicated, should be allowed to go uncontradicted in a country like this, where religious equality is so completely recognised, would argue, on the part of the Catholic commu- nity, an indifference to the good opi- nion of others, of which they have never been guilty, when and where- soever they had the means of dispell- ing ignorance, or rebutting s...
PROSPECTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
PROSPECTUS. &nbsp; &nbsp; "------ Be just and fear not: &nbsp; Let all the ends, thou aim'st at, be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's. -------" SHAKESPEARE. IT has long been a matter of deep regret among a great and respec- &nbsp; table portion of the inhabitants of this &nbsp; Colony, that, notwithstanding the great number of Newspapers published in Sydney, by far the greater part are strongly fettered by party influence, while not one has appeared, expressive of the wishes, or devoted to the inte- rests of the Catholic Population. Placed, by the laws, on a perfect equality with other denominations of Christians, forming a third of the en- tire population, and inferior to none in the exercise of all the duties of good citizens, we are treated by a certain party as if we were a degraded caste — a cipher in the population; and we al- most seem, as if we still groaned under the rigour of the penal laws. The Pulpit and the Press appear to vie...
Commercial Information. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 2 August 1839
Commercial Information. Our harbour scarcely ever contained so great a number of large ships as at present, and strangers just arrived can scarcely believe themselves out of Europe. The Cove is more like one of the ports on the coast of England, than that of a Colony 16,000 miles from the parent state. We shall endeavour hereafter to afford a statement as to the situation and des- tination of the several ships and vessels in the harbour, as well as any other information on the subject which may be interesting to our commercial readers. The Heber arrived from Liverpool, via the Cape of Good Hope, late on Friday night, has added to our population 180 bounty emigrants and 22 passengers. The principal part of the emigrants consist of farming men and labourers, all of whom have arrived in a healthy state. There were 5 infants died and 8 births during the passage. The barque Exporter, Captain Amwyll, arrived on Tuesday last, from Timor, by way of South Australia. She left Timor on the 9th...

Rice and Wheat [?]ad. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
We copy from the Sydney Gazette the following economical method of making bread by the introduction of a portion Rice. As that, article is now plentiful and cheap many families may be induced to adopt the &nbsp; mode pointed out: - Simmer 1ib. rice in two quarts of water till it becomes perfectly soft, when it is of a proper warm mix it extreme- ly well with 4lb. flour and yeast and salt as for other bread: of yeast four large spoon- fuls. Knead it well, then set it so the be- fore the fire- some of the flour should be re- served to make up the loaves. If the rice should require more water it must be added, as some rice swells more than others. From &nbsp; &nbsp; this, 8½lbs. of good bread will be produced.
