Country News. Bathurst, January 7, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 January 1840
Country News. Batlhurst, January 7; 1840. The districts of Bathurst and Lachlan are in an alarming state, owing to the numerous robbers that infests these parts of the country. A short time since the house of Mr. Finley, on the Lachlan River, was attacked by robbers. Mr. Finley refusing to open the door, they collected a large quantity of wood, placed it around the house, which was built of slabs, and set fire to the wood; the in- mates perceiving the danger of their situation, and no alternative left but to surrender, the fire was extinguished. The assailants possessed themselves of what articles suited them, remarking that they were not to be out-manoevered. Two Mounted Police-men from the new country were in search of the robbers. They fell in with four of them convenient to the Lachlan River, armed with twelve stand of arms. The robbers perceiving, the advantage they possessed over the Police, stood their ground--several shots were exchanged on both sides, one of the police got ...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 January 1840
VARIETIES. VWoMAN.-The destiny of woman is not a trifling destiny-the mission of wo man is not a trifling mission- the influ ence which she possesses and exercises is not a trifling influence. Ought then wo men to be triflers? Ought their educa tion and pursuits to embrace only a round of elegant trifles ? Should the cultiva tion of external graces form the chief object in the training of beings so influ ential and responsible? Such training adds to their influence, while it take from theom the power of directing it, andu in creases their roepousibilities, without imi parting the capacity requisite for their fulfilment. There is nothing so danger ous as the possession of influence, undi. rected by conscientiousness, and it seems playing with the destinies of society to allow such powers to remain in hands so little fitted to direct them. TIMt.--Momncts are the most precious treasures we possess, and by them niost frequently is the fate of man decided. The ultimate effects of the imp...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 January 1840
sydney: FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 18P. Tiu intentions of Government respect ing New Zealand have been at last made Tcnown by the Lieutenant-Governor, Cap tain Hobson, through the deputation which wiaited upon that gentleman agree. ably to the resolutions of a public meeooting reported in our last. It appears, that the Government is to take possession of the whole of the islands, which will in future be a British possession; that the titles of all claims to hold lands will be duly inves tigated, and in cases of bona fide pur chase', coifirmed ; that all disputed claims will be investigated and equitably settled; but tlhatthere is no disposition on the part of Government to interfere with the possessions of those whose titles are undisputed, or with any private dealings that are not complained of. All titles will of course be made to originate in the crown: It appears, further, that the company lately formed in London is viewed favourably by Government, (al. though no mention is made o.f it...

Immigration. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 January 1840
Immilgration Does our contemporary of the Chronicle know what is meant when a GENTLnAOINa tells him to his face that he does not believe what he says, or in vulgar terms, that it is all humbug ? If he dues, he may construc our meaning.-Colonist. Weo know well that it is much easier for the "genllcJnm7" of the Colonist to call " vulgar" and ungentlemanly names, than to refute our arguments against the demoralizing Bounty System. Wo have asserted nothing respecting the working of that system, that we are not prepared to prove by the oaths of competent wit. neeses. It is a question involving the lives and happiness of thousands of human beings. 'e never think of the things wo3 have witnessed on a bounty ship without shuddering; and we have never mentioned the subject to a passenger by one of those ships, who did not join with us in execrating the system. It does not follow from this, that there mas not be sonic bounty ships that have kind captains and oncers. Sotme may even have humane...
