Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

Country News. ARGYLE, MURRAY, AND KING.—During the greater part of the present month the weather throughout these counties has been exceedingly variable ; and in some parts much rain has fallen. The hay crop is ge- nerally good, and notwithstanding the wet most of it is in a safe state. This article will not be either so scarce or so dear next year, as it has been during that just at its close. The wheat, a great part of which suffered from blight in the month of Octo- ber, has in some degree recovered, and it is hoped that there will be an average crop. Flour is now 75s. the 100 lbs. in the town- ships—that which is sold at these prices is brought from Sydney. Shearing is not go- ing on so expeditiously as might be suppo- sed, owing to the great want of men—ma- ny settlers were necessitated to give up the shearing, in order to attend to and save their harvest. The lambing has in most instances been most productive, and lambs and ewes are doing well—the grass is most excellent—so al...

National Debt. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

National Debt.   The Colonists who are about to be sad- dled with a National Debt, will do well to ponder well the following extract. It is said to be the words of not less wise a personage than Napoleon Buonaparte :— " Never was a web more artfully woven over a nation, than that horrible debt which envelopes the people of England. It has been the means of enriching the aristocracy beyond all former example in any country, whilst it has, at the same time, ensured as many fast and powerful friends to the government, as there are individuals who   receive interest for that money, so extravi- gantly squandered to crush liberty in other countries. But, even that must have an end ! some accidental spark will ignite the combustable mass, and blow the whole system to the devil ! " If this mighty debt were due to foreign- ers, the cunning islanders would not bear the burden an hour ; but would, on some pre- text or other, break with their creditors, and laugh at th...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

Sydney; FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1839.

The Mendicant. An historical fact; translated from the French, for this Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

The m1endicant. An histlorical fact ; translated from the French, ,for this Paper. AN old mendicant was lately ob served to take his station punctually overy day at the threshold of one of the Churches of Paris. His manners, his deportment, and his language dis played an education much superior to that which ordinarily accompanies misery. Under his rags, which he supported with a certain dignity, it was easy to discover traces of higher origin. Thus, among the other poor people who crowd the portals of that Church, this mendicant enjoyed great authority. Jaques was his name. His good nature, his impartiality in the distribution of alms, and his zeal in appeasing quarrels had acquired him a well-merited consideration among the brotherhood. His life, however, and his misfortunes were a mystery, both to his comrades, and to the parishioners. Every morning, during twenty five years, he had taken his seat at the same place. People had been so accustomed to find him there, that he came to...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

LOCAL. There is a steamer at present build- ing on Messrs. Barker & Hallens' grounds (behind their Mills), for Mr. Grose, which it is intended to fit up with the engines of the Royal William, in order that she may have some share in the harvest which the Steam Com- pany are at present reaping. It is said she will be finished in four months. The repairs of the steamer James Watt progress rapidly. H. M. S. DRUID.—This splendid man-of-war leaves this shortly for China. Captain Hobson proceeds to New Zealand by the Herald, to take his situation as Governor of the new Colony. His family remain for the present in Sydney. THE CHINA.-- We visited the Immi- grant Barracks on Tuesday, and are happy to see the great request the "fi- nest pisantry ' in the world were in, that have arrived per ship China from Waterford. Most if not all of the farm laborers were almost immediately en- gaged ; the female servants were also in good request. The mechanics, how- ever, have not met with that i...

TO CHRISTOPHER O'BRIEN, ESQ., R.N.   Superintending Surgeon, Ship CHINA. RESPECTED SIR,—WE, the Immigrants per ship "CHINA," before   we are dispersed in pursuit of our various     occupations, beg leave to tender our respectful acknowledgements for the extraordinary atten- sion and great kindness we have universally ex- perienced from you. During a long and tedious passage, your whole time and attention has been wholly devoted to us, and such an impression has it made on our hearts, that we for ever will look back with feelings of gratitude and esteem   to your kind and parental conduct to all on board. You have paid the greatest attention to our health ; the whole energies of a bene- volent mind have been directed to preserve us from the diseases incidental to a long voyage. and have treated with the greatest skill, in our humble opinion, the constitutions of all ; we must therefore remember, with gratitude, the auth...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

Van Diemen's Land. We have received Van Diemen's Land papers to the 13th instant. Murray's Review continues to pub lish official documents connected with thtis colony, which were, we presume, like Mr. C. Buller's plan of our con stitution, unknown here. Mr. Murray proposes that Mr. Wentworth should be immediately despatched to England to represent the colonists of New South Wales. We most cordially join in this suggestion. The following are extracts : - 'Tu WEATHER AND THE CROPS. We believe that a more congenial season for all kinds of vegetation has not been known in the colony, neither have there been more promising crops. We trust that both the government of Sydney, and that of this colony, will secure such a supply of wheat in their stores, as will not only meet all their own demands, but, should it be neces sary, defeat any attempt at monopoly. We suspect, however, that last year has taught both governments a benefi cial lesson on this subject, for we are not unacquainted with ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. MY NATIVE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

ORIGZIN.AL POETRV". 'MY NATIVE HOME. I've travelled o'er the sunny meads SOf many a pleasant land, And mix'd with men of every cast Upon the marted strand; And oft upon thie wide, wide sea, Before the summer gale, With many a mnerry hand, my bark Has spread her whit'ning sails. I've mixed in crowded halls with those Who own no plebeian blood; And found a cheering welcome from The noble and the good. Though stranger, from my native home, I've found a thousand friend,, Yet still will memory turn to those Where youlhful feeling blends. My native honme! my native home ! What kindred feelinga start At that so t word, whose mystic lore Is sacred to the heart. Wheresoe'er my wandering footsteps roanm, By land ur'fiaming sea. Oh ! may my latest breath be spent, Mly-natiee home, with thee I W.B. ? =? ,..... ,? .. . . . .. . . -? ? - ?

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839

Port Phillip. It has been brought under our notice, that the illegal conduct of publicans and others, in snppl)ing the aboriaines who frequent the town with spirits, renders these wretches of creatures " more like mnaniacs than human beings." We have often had to express the feelings of the public against the assistant pro tectois, for a want of activity and industry in their avocations ; but if this very public will, by the worst means in tlheir power, render nugatory any attempts (however crude or in adequate) of these ;oficers to civilize and chris tianize the natives, we cannot shield them from the retort they so justly incur. The protector in charge of the Western Port distlict, who is usuallly resident in the immediate neighbour hood, and acts as supervisor of the motions of the natives, while in encampment at Melbourne, cannot possibly discharge his euty with surc cess, it the evil irdluence of numbers is to he allowed an open field of opposition to his admonitions and injunc...

News and Rumours of the Day. Thomas Teebinan, a labourer, residing in Sussex-street, died suddenly on Saturday night; an inquest since held on the body, have returned the verdict usual in such cases-The Emigrants who arrived by the China from Wa- terford, were landed and received at the Go- vernment Barracks on Tuesday last.-It is rumoured that another New Bank is about to be established under the title of the Trades- men and Shopkeeper's Bank.-Considerable uproar prevailed in the neighbourhood of the Dundee Arms, on Sunday last, in consequence of the boisterous conduct of one of the devotees to the jolly god, who, after alarming all the neighbourhood and beating off several con- stables, succeeded in effecting his escape.— Reports are in circulation, that a vessel, sup- posed to be the Speculator, from Newcastle, has gone down outside the heads, but we both hope and think that they will turn out like most flying rumours of the kind, to be incorrect.— A new town is about to be foame...

Westminster Abbey. A FRENCHMAN'S REFLECTIONS ON WESTMINSTER ABBEY. (Extracted and translated from Melanges par D. Nisard.) [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

Westminster Abbey. A FRENCHMAN'S REFLECTIONS ON IVESTMINSTER ABBEY. (Extracted and translated from Melanges par DI. Nisard.) LONDON should be visited for the sake of Westminster Abbey. On one side you have the Parliament, another antiquity full of grandeur, and con nected with interesting reminiscences. Two new societies-inhabit these walls, which were built by two societies now no more, for creeds which time has abolished. The work of thought has perished, the work of the hand has survived. On entering Westminster Abbey, you are met by a kind of usher. ' Do you wish to see the whole edifices, or only a part?' and he names you the two prices. The bargain struck, he goes to wake another usher, who is asleep on a chair at the foot of a pillar a few paces distant. This man rises, arid rubshiis eyes, and then conducts you to all the tombs of importance, naming, as ho goes on, ,the .persons who are buried. If you remain too long in one chapel, he politely requests you to finish your tour...

To the Editor of the Australusian Chronicle. Atoms or systems into ruin hurl'd, And now a bubble bursts, and now a world. Por'a Sin,-You may nows congratulate Mesdamnes Willis, Duusdon & Co., on the acquisition of such a gallant defender of their cause as I per ceive (by a letter in the Sydney Gaxetcte) has stepped forward in defence of the principles they profess. Well what will not man do to please the ladies I For you mrny easily perceive from the tone of that epistle, that the inditer of it had not religion or the interest of the princi. Iples which' he'professes to advocate at heart; no human creature, surely, being so utterly be. nighted and sunk in the mists of ignoraunce, as to credit the existence of such gross and iufamous principles as those he endeavours to palm on Catholicity. But lest some portion of the pub lic might mistake his gallantry for his religion -his ps'ofessed sentiments for his real ones. I will just enter into a short notice of the leading points ...
