Increasing my stock of cattleo has been my chief em ployment. 1 have made several visits to the British Consul on the other side of the islands, who has always kindly re ceived me, and from whom I have made a valublo addition to my stock. My principal object in vislitng him has boon to obtain his sanction and interest in pe titioning the Governor of the Colonies, as well as the Home Governmqnt, to grant us a representative here. We are now becoming very numerons, and it is high time that laws and protection should be aflorded us.

Sonie obstruc tions offered on the part of the Manuarus 1in attempt to got provisions on board an English cuttor, the Louisa, had led to an alfair which terminated in some war junks being driven on shore.

THE Archbishop of Canterbury's RELIGIOUS BUDGET. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
TiHE .A-rchbishop of Canterbury's .RELIGIOUS BUDGET. From the WVEEKLY DESPATCHI. The world is commonly avereso Tod nil the truths it sees and hears; Bi3t swallows nonsense and a lie With greadiuess and gluttony.--l1 uDinn s. ON the .eveoring on.which the Arch bishop of Canterbury brought forth his resolutions in one iouseoof Parliament, the Chancellor of the Exchequer opened his in the other. Each was a sufficient dose for the &trongest national stomach, but the two together were " too much for man to. put up with." The two motions wore .strictly fiscal. The Chancellor's object was to plunder us for the good of our bodies, that of the Archbishop for the salvation of our souls. The Epis copal debate is too rich to be passed over. Lot the country pay a little attention to the discussion in the House of Lords. The Archbishop of Canterbury says " The Governnment ought to have so much confidence in the Church as. to entrust it-with the mauuagoment of the education of "its own chi...
Bounty System. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
Bounty System. MR. MARSHALL AND IMMIGRATION. We have received a lengthy communication on the subject of abuses experienced in the ships bringing emigrants under Mr. Marshall's agency. The writer is a young man who came out in the Mary, which arrived on the 24th November, and who has furnished us with his name, but the letter contains so much libellous matter that we have not thought it advisable to give it in- sertion. Among the abuses complained of, the writer states that it is generally known that £5 is required to be paid by the mechanic wishing to emigrate on the bounty system, while Marshall receives £15 from the Government ; and, with regard to such emigrants, it runs in the printed rules and regulations of Mr. Marshall, "All immi- grants going out under colonial bounty are distinctly informed, and it is on express condition on their being admitted to a pass sage, that they must all, on arrival, go before the board appointed at Sydney or Port Phillip to inspect them, and that ...
