Mozart's Violin. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 January 1840
lYlozart's V i'oin., From " .e« Nu1Vuit's Etoilees." About forty years ago, a. poor dealer in nick-nacks 'and- b.ric-d-brac, named Ruttler, took up- his abode at the upper extremity of the Fag~vbourg;St. Joseph,3 tit Vienna. 'The scanty profits of his little trade but ill sufficed for the support of a ongý iif 'and :fonrtoeen hildron ; the oldest 'of vwhoni was but sixteen years of age" Ruttler, howoeer,.notwithstand luig ihe ~iscouraging positionof his affairs, wal kind-hearted, ever ready to serve his friends, and' the needy traveller was never known to quit his'door without the benefit of,.his advice'or his charity. An individual whose-serious deportment and benevolent expression of countenance were calculated to inspire respect and interest, .passed regularly every day before tho door of Ruttler's shop. The iXdivleuilal in 'question was evidently strug gling agaiast the influence of a desperate i~tlady-*naturo seemed no longer to. have any charnis in his eyes a languid smile wou...
The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 January 1840
Sydney: TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, I8lo. --" A cunrous pamphlet has just issnoued from thle Sydney press, entitled " An Appeal to the WVorldl, in behalf of the younger branch of the family of Shorn ;" which means, in other words, an address to the Quoeen, the Lords, the Commons, the Secretary for the Colonies, the Go vernor, the Bishops and Clergy, the People of Now South Wales, and tile World, in behalf of tho aboriginal inha bitants of these colonies. It is evidently the work of a person who is an enthusiast, in no ordinary sense of the term, and this enthusiasm is so conspicuously developed in every page, that the work will in all probability be thrown aside, unread, by every one of the parties to whom it is addressed. Nevertheless it is a pity that such a fate should attend it; for amid a unass of political and religious rant, there are some important though melancholy facts, told in the language of sincerity and truth, and commented on with an eloquence not unworthy of the subject. h...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 January 1840
'ýTI LIS ~H i I J.EXlixT'A ACTIP . KING ERNESTv. QUEEN VICTORIA. We extract the following extraordinary article front the Gazette Universelle de Leipzic, which reproduces it from that of Magdeburg, without note or comment: " We are assured," says this article, "* that Queen Victoria is so weak in health, that her death without heirs is more than probable; in which case the King of .Hanover anid the Prince Royal would become her legitimate heirs. The Duke of Cambridge, it is true, has made no advance towards the Whig party, or towards the Radicals to impede the legi timate pretension of his Hanoverian Ma jesty and the Prince Royal to the throne of England, or to imitate the example given by the ?Iouse of Orleans to replace the older by a junior branch of the family by the permission of the national repro sentatives; but circunmstances might ar rive when 1i'higs and Radicals might act in order to divert the succession. A combination would then h. attempted by moans of an augwentatibn ...
