Miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

Miscellanea. A CURIOUS DISCOVERY.—A curious and valuable discovery has just been made in the alloy of metals. A maufacturer of Paris has invented a composition much less oxideable than silver, and which will not melt at less than a heat treble that which silver will bear ; the cost is less than 4 I. an ounce. Another improve- ment is in steel ; an Englishman at Brussels has discovered a mode of casting iron so that it flows from the furnace pure steel, better than the best cast steel in England, and almost equal to that which has undergone the process of       beating. The cost of this steel is only a farthing per pound greater than that of cast iron. IMPORTANCE OF A COMMA.—A very lovely girl, named Smith, hung herself at Dayton, Ohio, when her parents were absent from home. On returning, they found her dead. The Cin- cinnati Republican says, " she was found, strangled by her father and mother." THE LENGTH OF A LAWYER'S BEARD.—In a parliament o...

China. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

W? learn, per Lord Amherst, which arrived yesterday, that the affairs of China still remain in a disturbed state; Captian Elliot not having, as yet, re ceived positive orders, as to how he is to act, from the Home Government. The Viceroy still insists on the for feiture of the whole of the opium, which must inevitably destroy many great Calcutta merchants, particularly the Parsee Rustomgeo Cowasgee, who had a receiving ship or two at Can ton. Most of the British Merchants were at Macao. ýNNýNIýN.NýM-N-1I.INNJNýNJ.N Mr- NIN Nr

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

LOCAL. A correspondent states that, in the Thea- tre, on Saturday last, there were two young gentlemen accompanied by two females of, perhaps. not the best character, and enquires " if it is because one of those young men is related to a distinguished person in this colony, that respestable females are to be annoyed and insulted by the introduction of such persons into the dress circle of the Victoria Theatre ? " We are bound to reprobate strongly such con- duct, and if such a thing occurs again and is brought under our notice, we will not hesitate to apply a remedy in a more effec- tual way. PLAIN ENGLISH.-On Saturday, a ser- vant of Mr. Lyons was brought up again   before Captain Innes, on the charge of har- bouring a soldier in his master's house at night. He was ordered to find bail to keep the peace for twelve months ; and, in the event of his not doing so, to be committed to gaol. Captain Innes remarked, that he had known this man for a length of time to be a bad ...

Jack Sheppard's Escape FROM THE NEW PRISON. More to be admired than imitated. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

Jack Sheppard's Escape FROM THE NEW PRISON. More to be admired than imitated. In consequence of Jack Sheppard's desperate character, it was judged ex- pedient by the keeper of the New Prison, to load him with fetters of unusual weight, and to place him in a cell, which, from its strength and secu- rity, was called the Newgate ward. The ward in which he was confined was about six yards in length, and three in width, and in height might be about twelve foot. The windows, which might be about nine foot from the floor, had no glass; but wore se- cured by thick iron bars, and an oaken beam. Along the floor ran an iron bar, to which Jack's chain was at- tached, so that he could move along it front one end of the chamber to the other. No prisoner except Edgeworth Bess was placed in the same cell with him. Jack was in excellent spirits ; and by his wit, drollery, and agreeable demeanour, speedily became a great   favourite with the turnkey, who al-   lowed him ever...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE HEART. (After the manner of Spencer.) [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

ORIGINA.L POETR- . THE HEART. (After the manner of Spencer.) Did ever sage so wise, with tongue or pen, Pourtray the wonders of that wondrous thing Which lieth in the breast of every man ? Did ever poet rightly of it sing ? * The same it is, whether it to a king Or poorest wight that ever lived belong; As varied are the fruits it forth doth bring, As are the forms of countenance men among: .And sometimes they are right, and sometimes they are wrong. Small is-it sure, yet it ean well contain Full livers things, and idols manifold : Ofttimes it trembleth much through fear of pain; Ofttimes it pinuth much through love of guoli O'ttimes desire of knowledge doth it holl; Ofttimes desire of glory duth it swell; Most strange it is in women young and old; Its movements some have thought to buy and sell: What wight with mortal tongue can all its wonders tell ? Deep and unsearchable its nature lies; So far beyond all ken its nmyst'ry seems, -As earth below is dis.ant from the skies. Things va...

Colonel Wilson. "Audi alteram partem." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

Colonel Wilson " Audi alteram parlem." With reference to an extract which appeared in this paper from a rather injudicious defence of Colonel Wilson, by a correspondent of the Colonist, we are requested to state, that this defence was quite unauthorised, and that although the Colonel is engaged in drawing up a defence, which he has not the slightest doubt will be a success- ful one, he has not as yet shown a line of it to any one, much less has he sent it to any newspaper, his intention being, in the first instance, to lay it before His Excellency the Governor for his consideration. We are, moreover requested to say that the assertion that has appeared in our own and other papers, that certain charges were proved against Colonel Wilson, is unfounded, " no charge whatsoever having been proved against him." This being the cases We call upon our readers to suspend their judgment until the appearance of the Colonel's defence; every man having a right to be considered innocent until the ...

Prorogation of Parliament. HER MAJESTY'S SPEECH. "MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 December 1839

Prorogation of Parliament. HER MAJESTY'S SPEECH. " MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, The public business having been brought to a close, I have now to perform the satisfactory duty of releasing you from your long and labo- rious attendance in Parliament. I rejoice that a definite treaty between Hol- land and Belgium, negotiated by the mediation of the Five Powers, has settled the differences between those two countries, and has secured the peace of Europe from dangers to which it had so long been exposed. The same concord which brought these intri- cate questions to a peaceful termination prevails with regard to the affairs of the Levant. The Five Powers are alike determined to uphold the independence and integrity of the Ottoman empire, and I trust that this union will insure a satisfactory settlement of matters which are of the deepest importanoe to the whole of Europe. It has afforded me the sincerest pleasure to have been able to assist in effecting a reconci- liation between France and M...
