Cricket Match. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
Cricket Match. (From the Australian.) The return match between the Victoria and Australian clubs came off on the Race Course yesterday. Betting was in favour of the Aus- tralians, in consequence of their having easily won &nbsp; the match played on the 23rd October last ; but there being a number of new players among the Victoria gentlemen, it did not rise higher than from four to five. Tents for the accommodation of the players were created, over which waved the flags of the respective clubs. The match &nbsp; seemed to excite considerable interest, and drew together a large assemblage of well-dressed persons of both sexes, to witness the result. The Australian club went in first, and made the following score : - Clarkson, b. by Young --- 5 runs Rowley, b. by McVitie --- 3 Lilias, c. by Still --- 2 &nbsp; Long, b. by Young --- 9 &nbsp; Martin, b. by Young --- 7 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; D...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
The ceremony of laying the foundation stone of a new Protestant Church took &nbsp; place on Wednesday last. The piece of ground which has been granted to St. Lawrence's parish by government for this &nbsp; purpose lies at the corner of' George and Pitt Streets. At 11 o'clock, morning ser vioe was celebrated at Mr. Hughes's Brewery; immediately after the comple tion of which, Bishop Broughton departed in his carriage with his family and the few respectable parties who were present. This seemed to give much disappoint ment as a programme of a grand procession, containing the names of the " clergy," " the High Sheriff,"' " the Peace Officers," "the Right Reverend Father &nbsp; in God William Grant Lord Bishop of the Diocese, &c. &c." had been publish ed. (The scrupulous "Gazette" has en &nbsp; deavoured to palm the printed bill upon its readers the veritable "order of &nbsp; &nbsp; the procession."] The rest of the con gre...

China. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. -Sir-Various strange reports are afloat with re spect to China. The Sydney speculators think to gull the public through the medium of the press. Do not lend yourself to any thing of the kind. Various parties who have had opportunities of knowing the truth of the matter, state that the trade with China is again open, and that several cargoes of tea may be daily expected. The price of tea must be kept down-the truth should be made known-the public ought not to be humbugged. Tea has risen to £10 and £11 per chest; a week or two, and it will fall to its ordinary price.-I am, Sir, &c., NO SPECULATOR. &nbsp;

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir-. The puny tories your profession, viz; the Herald and Colonist, have of late been ranting away against Sir George Gipps, the Whig Govern ment, and its lavish expenditure, more than did Drs. Wardell and Bland, W. C . Wentworth, Esq, Sir John Jamison, and the late Sheriff Mackiness, in the days of Governor Darling, against the gross corruptions in those days, 'yet they were snarled at by those " Original Shopkeepers," who call them selves Editors, who now dictate to Legislatures, talk largely about public meetings being called, and the voice of the Colony heard. Poor old women, called, the Rowell's Club, headed by James Macar- thur,Esq, just returned amongst them from his parliamentary pursuits and agency- a man too, who knew well that every step he took was opposed to the petitions of the free inhabitants, signed by tens of thousands, addressed to Kings George IV, and Wil- liam IV, and the B...

Mauritius. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
Mauritius. In a late number, we gave an account of an affray which had taken place in this port, between the Commander of a French Frigate and a Captain Driver, respecting a supposed insult to the British flag. Various versions of this affair having since appeared in the columns of our contem poraries, and the conduct of Captain &nbsp; Driver having received a tribute which we do not think it deserved, and more particularly as its imitation by others might lend to fearful consequences, we are induced to give the following article from the Cerneon, a Mauritius paper of the 22d September last: " Now that the episode of the Greenlaw has been brought to a definite conclusion, it may be useful, to communicate to our readers some of the serious reflections which have been suggested to us by that &nbsp; deplorable affair. Opposed as we are from principle to that petty spirit of nationality which, happily, is now nearly extinct among us, we were the more in duced to censure ...
Police Office. Before Mr. Windeyer and Capt. I[?]s. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 January 1840
Before Mr. Windeyer and Capt. Innes. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; James Simeon was brought up, charged with having stabbed Abraham Levy, of George-street. Levy, being sworn, deposed-The prisoner at the bar came to my door on Saturday, 20th December. I told him he ought to be ashamed of himself, for treating in the way he had a girl he had lately seduced from the Emi grant Barracks. He immediately said he would stick me, and called me a black- guard. I struck at him. I am not certain whether the blow took effect or not. He then stabbed me with a knife in the arm. It was aimed at my body. I knocked him down; the knife was taken from him by a bystander, after which, the crowd in terfered. He went out into the street, came back, and struck me with a bottle on the head, as I was going into my shop. Daniel Curry was called, and corrobo- rated the principal points of this evi- dence. &nbsp; &nbsp; Gabriel Bennett was called, and af- firmed tha...

Miscellanea. &nbsp; JAMES WATTS BOYHOOD.-A friend of Mr. Watt one day came upon young James, stretched upon the ground, tracing with chalk all sorts of cross lines. " Why do you suffer this child thus to trifle away his time?" exclaimed the visitor; " send him to school." " You will do well to suspend your judgment," said the father,' before condemning him ; be good enough to find out his occupation." The harsh judgment was speedily reversed. The child of six was solving a problem in geometry. " James," said Mrs. Muirhead, one day to her nephew, " I never saw any boy more given to trifling than you are; can't you take a book, and employ your time usefully? 'There have you been sitting a whole hour without speaking a single word. Do you know what you have been about all this time? You have done nothing but shut and open, and open and shut the lid of the tea-kettle; and first you have put the saucer in the steam from the spout, and then you have held the silver tea-spoon in it...
