Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 January 1840

Police Court. Yeserday morning, a case of forcible entry came on before Captain Innes and Mr. Brennan. Mr. Nichols appeared for the prosecutor, Mr. Sim- mons' and Mr. Darvell for the defendants, Alex. Stephens and Hugh Henry. Constable M'Grath deposed, that he took the prisoners into custody on a charge of Mr. Sim-   mons, that they, the prisoners, laid broken into his house and robbed him. The prisoners demanded to be taken to the Police office, as it was a false charge. Upon Mr. Lyons' interfering, Mr. Sim- mons said he would give him in charge too. In answer to Mr. Brennan,-This was not a dis- tinct charge-nothing was defined ; but he under- stood it was on the same charge. Constable Barry deposed much in the same purport. Mr. Unwin, who was looking out of his window, bade Harry take care, and offered to go bail. (Mr. Nichols said, he supposed they would not take a lawyer's bail.) They did not offer to   run away when given in charge. He did not search t...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE DELIVERY OF THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 January 1840

ORIGrNAL POETRY. THE DELIVERY OF THII LAW. Saw ye the flash, The red light'ning revealing. Heard ye the crash Of the thunder, loud-pealing. Lo! robed in the tempest, and borne on the wing Of the whirlwind, came Israel's Cmnipotent King. Sinai became, In the midst of her trembling, A mountain of flame; And a furnace resembling, Black volumes of smoke from her entrails were driven, In darkness to clothe the wide concave of Hleaven. Like a demon in anger, Then sprang from the cloud Tihe trumpet's brass clangour, Still loud, and more lond; And the voice of its echo grew harsher and shrill, And roll'd round the mountain, and dwelt oni the hill. Then Jehovah on high Spoke in accents of thunder; And writhing Sinai Rent her bowels asunder: And thus, whilst all Nature was trembling with awe, Jehovah to Zion delivered his law. B.

South Australia. THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 January 1840

South Australia. (From the SOUTIIHEN AUsTSALIAN, 26th Dec.) THE GOVERNOR. IT is with tho deepest anxiety we an nounce that on Tuesday despatches were receivecd from His Excellency, intimat ing that at the time they were sent o'" His Excellency's party were reduced to the greatest extremity by want of provi sions. They were at the western bend dof the Murray. Five of the horses had died from exhaustion in penetrating the scrub. A'young gentleman attached to the Governor's suite, a Mr. Bryant, had also booeen lost in the scrub. It seems that His Excellency and party were endea vouring to force their way through the dense forest of the scrub on the west of the Murray, and that after having pro coeded a considorable way, they were forced, from utter exhaustion, to give up the attempt. Captain Sturt and Mr. Inman having returned to the Murray for water, His Excellency in his anxiety for their return, exchanged horses with Mr. Bryant (whose horse was comparatively fresh, and His Excoellen...

Whatever it may have .proved in the more open sea, at Melbourno this mouth has been gone rally noted for its sultry oppressive heat, sometimes followed, as in 1838, by two or throo weeks of intermittant rain. The continuationof bad weather during the last month has very much retarded the operations both of the farmer and the shoop, neither has it been found praction blo to reap the standing crops, nor to shoar the ready fleece.

POETRY. "THE CROSS OF CONSTANTINE." Written by Lady Flora Hastings, in the Album of a Friend. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 January 1840

"THE CRO88 OF CONSTANTINE." Written by Lady Flora Hlastings, in the dlbum of a Friend. "Conquet In this!"-not unto thee alone The vision spako, imperial Constantine; Nor as more presage of an earthly throne Bla3ed in 'mid hcav'u the consecrated sign. Through the unmeasured tract of coming time, The mystic cross doth with soft lustre glow; And speaks through ev'ry age in ev'ry clime, To every slave of sin and child of woe. " Conquer in this I" Aye, when the rebel heart Clings to the idol it was wont to cherish, And, as it sees those flattering boons depart, Grieveths that things so bright were formed to perish. Arise, bereaved one I and athwart the gloom, Read in the brightness of that cheoring ray "Mourn not, oh ! Christiau, though so brief its bloom, Nought that is worth a sigh shall pass away !" {' Conquer in this !"-when fairest visions come To lure thy spirit to a path of flower ; Binding the exile from a heav'uly home To dwell a lingerer in unholy bowers ; Strong in His strengt...
