But whIri would be the old gen. tleman''s ejaculations, were lie in this hopeful country, where not less than ten times that anllt per hrad is annually abstracted from tile publio purse to support a band of spies alnd despicable informers, who by means of charges of assault, of obstruction, arid? informations, make tire total ex pease of tile police to tire public treasury anld the viotims they pounce upon, exceed in actual amoulnt the whole annullal costof...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 January 1840

Wort Phillip. We have received Port Phillip, papers to the 4th instant, but they contain little local news of interest. 'Lhe Port Phil lip Herald has made its debut in a well printed sheet of good paper, but in other respects it appears to be simply a feeler, without having as yet adopted any dis tinetive character. (FPiom the P. P. Gazette, January 4, 18400) Tihe old Holidays of Christmas and New Year's Day bave passed off with their usual quota of hilarity amongst the good folks of Melbourne. It is pleasing to observe that drunkenness on thlis oc casion lias been muchb less rife among the lower orders than formeoly. Firing loose and r?oldom salutes seems to,be the favorite method of doing hIonor to any festive occaslol,, a scattering of shots having been kept upfor several hours on the eve of the new year.

W\sstrEYAN MirtsoDisTS,-Your reply to my first letter is a most exquisite piece of impertinenco; an indescribable olio of anger, rancour and absurdity. Yet, take it for all in all, I heartily thank you for it. The voxation you exhibit at being defeated in argument proveq how anxious you would be to con trovert my facts and reasoning, if you could do so. It is, however, much more easy for you to scold and vilify me than to answer those facts anti that reasoning. Accordingly, you have, in your own " meek and pious" manner, vitubcrated and calumniated me with an intensity of malignity which potently proclaims your sense of your own defeat. Such conduct is the usual resource of convicted and exposed bigotry and uncharitableness. You have a perfect right to this, your only resource I You have indeed given me a triumph in the confession of your weakness. Many of my friends, Protestant a...

Country News. WOLLoMBI.-On the 8th instant, that really indefatigable clergyman, the Rev. MiR. Lynch, paid his periodical visit to this place, and performed divine service in the presence of a numerous congrega tion, many of whom had to come a dis tance of fourteen or fifteen miles. A subscription was entered into and men set to work, to erect a church on a piece of land, the gift of an inhabitant: The effects of the labours of our clergy have already become apparent on the Catholic inhitbitants of this district, although ntot yet a twelve-month since the first visit of the Rev. Mr. Mahony. The appoint ment of D. Dunlop, Esq., as police magistrate for this district appears to give general satisfaction, although not personally known to many here, yet they conclude that he must be respectable to opposed to such men as certain honour ables.

However, deli berating with myself, I thought it would be better to examine the fact before adopting an opinion; and after having carefully consulted the government sta tistics, I have discovered my error. The number of religious orders is, perhaps, inc...
