China. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
Although the accounts publicly circulated bIy the Plamnter,of having procured, her cargo under Spanish, Daullsh, and American colors, would seen to imply that the trade between the Chinese and English merchants is closed, yet we are privately informed upon good Rau tlnrity, that such is not really the case ; and the Horny, which arrived on "Friday from En= gland, having spoke the George IV. in lat. = 19' N. and ltur. 22 1D IV. with 22,003 chests of tea, is a further confirmation of the open state of the Chiriese trade. If then, as we firm ly believe this latter report is correct, we can flnd no other motive for the circulation of the former than the very natural but unjtust desire of the mercllants to continue the present ad: vanced price of tea.

"Ingenious Devices" IN LIMERICK. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
"i Ingenious Devices " IN LIJMRICK. The Lirmerick Reporter publishes the following correct version of the afl'air that had been distorted, by a Tory parson and an Orange newspaper, into the calumny which formed the matter of the action for libel in the case of Raleigh v. Massey and Dertnell, at the last Cork Assizes. As the falsified statement obtained a pretty general circulation, and as the arrangement by which the matter was hushed up at the assizes, prevented any of the circumstances from being investi gated, it is but justice to -Mr. Raleigh, to give the following simple and authentio statement all tae publicity which is pos sible : Miss Dodd repaired on last Holy Thursday evening to St. Michael's chapel, to witness the ceremonies. The toev. Mr. Raleigh, between the hours of six and seven, observed near the sanctuary a number of ladies standing in a group, upon which he requested all of theom (without knowing or addressing any in dividual), to kneel or leave the chapel.

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
.Sydney: -FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 1840. fWiT~ have just heard from the most authentic source, that our late highly talented-Governor, Sir Richard.1ourke, has been successful, by a proper repre sentation of the state of this colony, in obtaining from the ministry an avowal of their disposition to grant us the inestiut a~,lo blessing, not only of a representative Government; but of one which will really represent the people. In order, however, to obtain this great boon, it must be asked for! Now therefore is the time for the patriots to rally the people. Let us all unite in laying our desires at the foot of the throne, and the result is no longer doubtful. .It is a proud reflection for the friends of Sir Richard .Bourke, that the great 'man who gave theseocolonies reli gious equality, should also have -the hap piness of conferring upon thenm at once political existence and political freedom. It will still -remain for his successor to educate the people in order to share with BOU.IRK.E a n...

They go, a fresh and beautiful band, To the sunny sky of the" spirit laud;" To the music soft of an angel choir, They hymn their joy on an angel lyre; / .Gladlv, ah i gladly they sour away, As a bird uncaged or a child at play. They go, while the rainbow of hope is fair, Jts arch unbroken by-sin or care; While the rosy tint of their life's young glow le as bright as a sunbeam on beds of suow ; And they pass as gently, as softly on As the snow-flake melting, till the.y are gone. They go while untouched by the opening blast Which withering time on the old hath cast; While fancy paintoth the amethyst line, sGI the diamond glittering and blending through.; As the mighty host in their mildest beam. 1Or the impassioned trust of the lover?s dronm. They go, when the tendrils of love entwiue Rtouind the heart, untouched by the wintry wind; 'Vhile the spring hath nought in its early bloom Four its lovely one, of despair or gloom ...

LOCAL. "ORANGtO TO THE JBACKBONE." The notoriously mendacious scribe, who feeds the bad passions of the bigots, has in his Tuesday's sheet treasonously attempted to level our beloved sovereign with the worst of her soex. The b&te has in the same number put forth a amost beastly paragraph, with the intent of aiming a blow at the moral character of Irish females. The filthiness of the latter prevents further castigation in a paper which is read in families; and the former-will only excite loathing and dis gust in every loyal breast, if it should be considered.too senseless and contemptible to merit the attention of the Attorney (jeneral. We understand that our highly esteemed Attorney -General and family will return to Europe in April next, on leave of absence for two years. The succession to his office has boon offerod to the Commissioner of the Court of Requnsts, who, however, declines the onerous olfice, unless assisted by a Soli citor General.
