The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1849. "Maledicus a malefico non distat nisi occasione." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 January 1840
Sydney: FRIDAY, JANUARY 2.1, 1840. " flediricus a malefico non distat nisi occasione." Tn' truth of the above ancient pro verb will hardly be disputed by those who are in the habit of reading the loading journal of this colony. When a writer is observed, day after day, opposing every measure that is for the good of the bulk of his fellowmen, and advocating every nmeasure of tyranny and oppression, who thcr it relate to the aggrandisement of those who are the slaves of ambition and avarice, or to the oppression and degra dation of the poor immigrant, the unfor tunate exile, and the humble native,-are we not justified in saying that the man who would deny the immigrant his natural right of a control over those who make laws to which he is subject, would also, if he had the power, chain this Individual, and sell him, or work him as a slave, for his own emolument? Would not the man who exults and triumphs over suffering humanity, and clamours for the perpetuating of that suffering; woul...

rFrom a Correepondent.] VWe are authorized to state, that a number of Gentlemen in Sydney have formed theme. selves into a Company, to proceed to New Zea land, for the purpose of purchasing a vast tract of country in that fine Colony from the New Zealand Chiefs. They have already purchased the fine brig Lunar from Mr. Thomas Street, to convey live stock of every description, as well as merchandize, to barter with the New Zealanders for land. Mr. Rolla O'Farrell (fors mierlv Collector of Customs and Member of the Legisla'ive Council in Van Diemen's Land), one of the C-mpanv, together with several Surrey. ors and Draftsmen, &e. proceed in the vessel. W\e have not authority to state upon what terms the Company intend to dispose of the land which they mnay purchase, but we under: stand that they will be liberal in the extreme; inasmuch as they contemplate selling the whole of it upon seven years' credit, the payments to be made in equal proportions annually, to all industrions p...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 January 1840
NEW ZEALAND. The Governor issued three proclama tions respecting New Zealand last week. The first recites that by Letters Patent, dated 5th October, 1837, Her Majesty appointed Sir George Gipps Captain General and Governor-in-Chief in and over the Territory called New South WVales, and that by other Letters Patent, dated June 15th, 1839, Her Majesty was pleased to alter and enlarge the limits of the said Territory, so as to include -" any Territory which is or may be acquired in sovereignty by Her said Majesty, Her heirs or successors, within that group of islands in the Pacific Ocean, commonly called New Zealand, lying between the latitude of thirty-four degrees thirty minutes and forty-seven degrees ten minutes south, and one hundred and sixty-six degrees fire minutes and one hundred and seventy-nine degrees cast longitude, from the meridian of Green wich,and of all ports and garrisons erected and established or which shall be erected or established within thesaid Territories."

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Mr. O'Connell. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 January 1840
EN]GLISIl EXTRIACTS. IVir. O'Connell. Mn. O'CONNELL has published a long letter, in answer to the address of the Nation Trades Political Union of Ire land, on the subject of the Repeal of the Statute of Legislative Unions. " There are, 1 pledge myself," he says, " seven millions of Repealers in Ireland." He says further, there is an inborn hatred of the Union cherished in the public mind and in the private feelings of the universal Irish people. This is -1 know it full well-the predominating disposi tion of the Irish mind. No living man has, or could possibly have, anything like the experience I possess, as to the topics which thrill the Irish heart and arouse he Iriso soul." We will allow Mr. O'Connell to know better than any living man the way to the Irish heart, and that on such a sub ject he is a witness not to be challenged. It would be strange if.the people of Ire land were not keenly to feel that they are not placed on a footing of equality with the people of England and Scot...
