H1IGII BIIRtT[-HIGHf BREEDING-IIIGH .LIVING. To the Editor of the Australian. " Our religion hereabouts is evidenced chiefly in hating and abusing those that differ from us; and, excepting this zeal, we never show in other things that we have any."-tlight Reverend * Dr. John Law, Bishop of Elphin. The chastisement which the Editor of the Sydney Gazette has received from my hands ihas eflictually accnimplished Its purpose in same important re. spects. The feelings of individuals of aniable dioposition, and of their familiies leading exemplary lives, will not lie again so wantonly outraged, nor the charHeter of others belield, as behlg devoid of all Christian charily and every particle of generouls sentiment towards their nelghbours and fellow citizens.

The Tournament. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 January 1840

The Tournament. From the (London) llerald. This magnificent drama has thus been enacted, and, as a matter of history, its recollection will be perpetuated by the pencil of the painter, and the pen of those who, by different machinery,. fill -the office of minstrels and troubadours of other days. All that man could do to render the pageant attractive andi pleasing. and worthy to commemorate the chivalric spirit and actions of our fathers has been done, and if this has been partially marred it was from causes that neither nobles, knights, nor serfs could control. The storm of Wednesday was indeed a most desolating visitation, and nothing but the chivalric disposition of the Lord of the Tournament and his brethren could have induced them to bravo the merciless storm which raged for hours on the 28th. The procession and tilting of that day wore indeed of deference to the gratifica tion of the people, which, if omitted under the circumstances, could not have been well cavilled at; and th...

Parramatta Races. These Races came off on Thursday last, the 2d instant, before a large and respectable assemblage, composed of the inhabitants of the town and sur- rounding district. The principal amusement was afforded by the officers of the 28th regt., among whom Mr. Price was particularly distinguished for the part he took in the affair.

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 January 1840

Sydney: TUESDAY, JANUARY .7, 1840. WE have now given-that .attention to the printed evidence upon which the Report of the Immigration Committee was founded, which was required in order to understand its bearings, and we have risen from its perusal ?in the.full convic tion that the Comumittee:itself w.aformned by some manoeuvre on the part of three or four of its members-; that these three or four individuals bad private objects in view, totally unconnected with the good of Oho colony, or the-comfort of the emi grants; that for this purpose they examined such individuals, and such only, as they knew were -either disposed from interest or prejudice to recommend their measures, or of individuals .vbhose evi dence would be of a general nature, and theteforo not contrary to their schemes.

As tihr Advertisement, at first sight, might raise a prejudice agains' an unobtrunive public officer. I feel it lily duty to say a few words in expiHtna tin.:-Tlhe advertisement was for a nursery3-maid, to take sole-charge of a young child. The objec lion which was of accent, might bIe a valid one in an English family. although y.ut may justlly can sider the adverrtiemenlr unfortunlately worded.
