New Turn Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

New Jury Bill   This Bill has been laid before the Legis ative Council for the purpose of relieving Naval and Military officers from the duties of Jurors. The preamble of the bill recites the act of parliament-9 Geo. 4., c. 83, wherein it is provided ' that offences cognizable in the Supreme Court of New South Wales, upon Information in the name of the Attorney General, should be tried by one or more of the Judges and seven commissioned officers of His Majesty's sea or land forces, such officers to be nominated by the Governor. The same act also provides that it should be lawful for His Majesty, with the advice of the privy Council, at any time thereafter to authorise the Governor of New South Wales, with the advice of the Legislative Council, to extend and apply the form and manner of proceeding by Grand and Petit Juries; or either of them, in the trial of offences, cognizable in the Supreme Court, subject to such limitations, mortifications, and rules as the Governor ...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

'Van Diemen's Land. ---MDi- We have received Hobart Town papers to the 6th instant. The pirates who had been so long confined in   gaol have been reprieved by Sir John Franklin. The Colonial Times says."they are to expiate their offences, by a residence at Norfolk Island, for the term of their natural lives. The Judges at home decided against the prisoners, and an order was received by His Excellency for their execution, if he should see fit; but His Excellency took the more humane course, instead of shedding their blood." The apprehensions which were entertained for the safety of the wheat crops, for want of rain, were removed by copious showers. The quantity of wheat already sown, exceeds all that is usually sown in one season. The distillers had given a dinner to the gen- tlemen of the press, in Hobart Town, as an expression of their regard and thanks for the manner in which the press, with one accord, without a single exception, united in the con demnation of the co...

European Intelligence. Great Britain. THE HON. AND REV. MR. SPENCER. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

European Intelligence. Great Britain. THE HON. AND REV. MR. SPENCER. The conversion of Lord Spencer's brother to the Catholic faith has never ceased to annoy his late brethren of the Established Church, and his natural anxiety for the re-conversion of his country has brought out several attacks upon his loyalty from the organs of that party who are at present busily employed in calum niating our beloved Queen. The following is Mr. Spencer's reply to one of their attacks.- The sermon alluded to contains sentiments worthy of the author, and of the cause of loyalty and patriotism. To the Editor of the Times. Sir--The notice which you have taken of the account which I gave at West Bromwich of the association of prayers established in France for the conversion of England to the Catholic faith induces me to address you this letter. You have represented my proceedings in France, and the expressions which I made use of in my speech, as indicating in my own mind, and among Catholics generall...

Mr. King's Petition ON COLONIAL DISTILLATION, AND THE PRODUCTION OF WINE. To His Excellency Sir George Gipps, Knight, Governor-in-Chief of the Territory of New South Wales, and its dependencies, in Council assembled. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

ON COLONIAL DISTILLATION, AND THE PRO-   DUCTION OF WINE. To His Excellency Sir George Gipps, Knight, Governor in-Chief of the Territory of New South Wales, and its dependencies, in Council assembled. The humble Petition of James King, of Irrawang, on the River William, in the said Colony, respectfully sheweth That your Petitioner has for some years past planted Grape Vines, at considerable outlay, with a view to the production of wine. That as wine cannot be successfully manu- factured without the aid of a limited quantity of spirits, and as the requisite quantity may be readily procured by distillation from such of the product of the vineyard as would other wise be lost, your petitioner therefore humbly prayeth, that your Excellency and your honor able Council, while considering the proposal now before you, to discontinue distillation in the Colony, will be pleased t0o keep in view the position of your petitioner, and the other wine growers, for if they are not permit...

The Fine Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

HARMONY in music, perspective in paint- ing, and the pointed style in architecture, those advances in the arts which stir and re- flect the infinities of the human soul awakened, are only the products of catholicity. That   beautiful maxim of the Catholic Church, that all things most rich in substance, and all things most beautiful in form, should be consecrated to the Creator along with the devout heart of its possessor, has done more to humanize and refine the mind of man, and to develop its own creative invention, than the force of all motives merely human, utilitarian and selfish combined have been able to achieve. The use of material imagery to fix attention and to explain and reflect spiritual truth, is as old as the use of language. The sacred scriptures themselves present the most remarkable exam- ples of this use. It is a sequence of the con- stitution of our nature, compounded of the spiritual with the sensual. It is, as it were, a perpetual incarnalising of t...

New Music. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

No. 1. THE LANCERS' QUADRILLES, to which are added, a New Waltz, by Spagnoletti, and the Stop Waltz.. F. Ellard, George- street, Sydney.-   No.2. WE HAVE LIVED AND LOVED TOGETHER, a Ballad, by Henri Herz. F. Ellard. The growing taste for the fine arts so clearly observable in this colony, we look upon as one of its most auspicious features. Of these sisters, at once the offspring and the nurses of civilization, none exerts an influence so general and so beneficial as music, and none seems to be so much cultivated among us, or so well understood. A knowledge of this widely diffused taste for music, could alone warrant Mr. Ellard in entering upon an enterprise so expensive as that of publishing music at a dis- tance, so immense, from the general mart. He, no doubt, sees his way, and sincerely do we hope, that present success will encourage him to future efforts.   No. 1 is a complete "Book" in technical phrase. Its contents are well known, but we &nbs...

Some of these Prelates were esteemed'great divines;'and I know they were loarned men;' but they could not be called good Christians, the great wealth Which they heaped up, the fruits of their Bishopricks, and which they left to enrich their families, was not their own, it was due to God, to the Church, and to their poor brethren :-the history of the good Sama. ritan ought to be their monitory. .
