Miss Byrne. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

Miss Byrne. The following letters appeared in the Ga- zette and Monitor, of last week: - TO DR. ULLATHORNE. REV. SIR, I think it necessary to address you through the public press in consequence of your having made a young person, who is by family respectable, and in herself to be respec- ted, residing at present under my roof and pro tection, the subject of your public abuse, and   holding her up (to the utmost of your power) as an object of contempt. I now beg to as- sure you, that with regard to your controver sial differences I shall leave you to cope with that young person, as from what I have al- ready perused on both sides, I feel perfectly confident you will have sufficient to occupy your time ; but there are two points from which I shall never for a moment shrink-the first is, deprecating by my feeble voice and pen those who presume to attempt to hold the precious word of God up to public scorn and contempt ; and the second is, to protect the weak and innocent i...

Mr. Cherry's Lecture on Oratory. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

Mr Therry's Lecture on Oratory. Of Mr. Therry's second lecture on Oratory, we present to our readers a brief, but we trust not an unacceptable analysis. After adverting to the concluding topics of his former lecture, with the view of connecting the former with the latter discourse, he proceeded to notice the reasons why eloquence in modern times exer- cised less influence over public affairs than in the ancient republics of Greece and Rome. The chief and principal ground for the diminu- tion of the influence of oratory, was the great power of the press, which swayed as it were a divided.empire with tho..orator, in: the, power which'thley respectively exercisedover.the con duct and management of public affairs.. Besides the prodigious power of the press, in modern, times, we consider modern to' suffer a great! 'disadvantage, in comparison with. ancient, elo-' quence, from this consideration, that a great. proportion of the individuals constituting our: Legislature-the most, appropria...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

Van Diemen's Land. The Education Board.-We are happy to announce that the principle of the Board of Education has been liberally carried out, by the appointment of a highly respectable Roman Catholic gentleman to the committee. Mr. Dris coll. We believe Mr. Sorell is also appointed, so that the Board will now be largely and liberally constituted. We understand it com mences its operations on the 12th inst.--Mur. ray's Review. The Canadian Prisoners.--Nine of these unfortunate men have arrived by the Marquis of Hastings, one of them has left behind him a wife and eleven children, another has two pri vates in the 51st regt. stationed here. We be lieve there is every disposition on the part of the Local Government to treat them as lenient ly as possible, for we quite concur with Lord Brougham's observations in the House of Lords, on the 28th M1arch last, " that the practice of treating political offenders like common thieves and highwaymen, was very reprehensible ; such men were not to...

Resignation of Ministers. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

Resignation of Ministers. By the arrival of the Navarino, which sailed from Cork on the 12th May, we have received the news of the resignation of the Melbourne Cabinet. The Queen had sent for the Duke of Wellington and Sir Robert Peel, but it was not known if they would attempt to form a newMinistry. The adversaries of the Catholic Church have at all times exhibited proofs of conscious weakness by their unceasing attempts to impede the pro gress of education among the Catholic community. We have alluded to some striking examples of this spirit of opposition in the history of this co lony, by which every desire on the part of the government to establish a general system of education, aided by a disposition on the part of the Catho lics to further its views, by making all concessions consistent with their reli gious principles, has been frustrated. This opposition to the education of Catholics is nothing new in the history of the Church. Soon after the apos tate Julian had renounced C...

China. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

China. For the Information of our mercantile friends we copy from the Sydney Herald, the following extract of a letter, addressed to Messrs. Ram-   say and Young, by their correspondent at Ba- tavia : Batavia, June 21st, 1839. We have received accounts from China to the 11th May, by the Lady Grant passed Anjer yesterday for Bombay, whence will probably receive them before this comes to hand. Up to May 2, 15,000 chests of opium had been de livered. It was supposed, however, that the article would not be burned, the whole being regularly weighed, classed, and warehoused with great care. A recent Proclamation of the High Commissioner of the Chinese government contains the following paragraphs : " It appears that the English Superintendent Elliot, the American Superintending Officer Snow, and the Dutch Superintending Officer Van Basel. have presented addresses, request. ing that they all should return home at the head of the people, and the vessels of the several nations:" ...

Captain Watson speaks very favourably of that part of the country, and says that Mr. Dixon, the Surveyor, and his party are getting on very well. A new brig built at the M'Leay River, arrived on Thursday evening, she is christened Christina.   The schooner Dublin Packet, the property of Mr. Weller, of Fort=street, Sydney, has unfortunately been wrecked at Tyaree, on the coast of New Zealand.

Supreme Court. Before Mr. Justice Willis and a Civil Jury. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

Supreme Court. Before Mr. Justice Willis and a Civil Jury. Thomas Barry, Thomas Bolson, and Charles Wilson, were indicted for stabbing with intent to murder John Lynch. The prisoners were attached to the stockade gang at Newcastle, and Lynch was also in the same gang. The pri- soners occasionally employed themselves in making straw hats, and sold them to the cook employed for the gang. It was suspected that they received in payment a portion of the other men's rations for these hats. Lynch made a complaint of that circumstance, which led to the brutal attack made upon him by the pri- soners. Lynch and prisoners slept in tire same hut, and on the night of the 27th of June, while he was asleep, the prisoners covered his head over with a blanket, and attempted to murder him by stabbing him with a knife. While he was struggling, he heard Wilson tell Barry to cut his throat. Bolson, and Wilson held him, and, Barry stabbed him.-Guilty, Death. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14.   Before th...

The Archbishop's Fifty Louis. An historical fact—from the French. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 August 1839

The Archbishop's Fifty Louis.     An historical fact-from the French. It was nine o'clock; I sat at my window ransacking my mind for the subject of an article, when I saw the masons, who laboured at a house that was being built in front of mine, seat themselves upon large blocks of stone, and, with their hands and feet still covered with white dust, commence their breakfast. Some indeed had gone to the well, but the greater part had not taken that trouble ; and I fancied that I heard the dust of stones, bricks, and plaster cracking under their teeth. For labourers, the time of repast is also the time of conversation and rest ; no wonder then that in general they like to prolong it. And who would refuse a few good moments to those whose labours are so hard ? Not I assuredly. I observed them then minutely, and listened to their con versation as they sat below my win dow!   A young Priest had just passed by, and the youngest of the masons began to...
