Comfort for the Wesleyans. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
womtfort for tbe ireocanous. The Rev. [-I. T. Stiles has just pub lishod a sermon, in which he pretty plainly declares that all separatists front the Church of England, particularly the Wesleyans, are in a'state of schism and excomntuuoiation, and consequently on the high' road to perdition. 'Take the following specimen : - " The Churchl of England being thits shewn (?t ??) to be a true Church of Christ-a holy temple built upon the foundation of thel Apostles-Jesus Christ Ihinself being the chief corner.atune-it is plain that they wIho causeleasly depart fromn her commlniln, who violate her unit), by forming arpsr.te worshipping assemblies. who have distinct sacraaments, who create a new miulstry, not ol apostolic ordination, are guilty of the sin which lte Scriptures call scllism-they are they shllo cause dlivlsiol.s-they ale lthey whom the Apostles call upon us not to support, or to cherish, but to mark thlem,' in order to avoid them.

.ontotbn faugTioon for mctober. Autumlnr dresses are now worn pretty generally. Velvet spencers have been seen this week, baut it struck us that they only are becoming on the young; green, black, anld moroon are the favollrite colour,. Schalas or black lace are now little seen; but those of embroidered nmlislin, either single or over blight satin, are strll cllerished by women of taste. After these the favourites are of white cachlnere, with long while Iringe Schalas of shot silks are now beginning to lose taste; they are still, how. ever, seen in neglige, chiefly of greet', grey, and purple.

India. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
India. We have received India papers to the middle of September, and Isle of France papers to the first week in November. Amongst their intelligence are the dutails of a most gallant achievement by the British troops, adding another Isurol to the glorious wreaths which already adorns them. The official dispatch from the victorious general, Sir John Keane; is in the Calcutta Gazette of the 29.h Aug. We have now only space to state, that it announces the capture of the hitherto supposed impregnable fortress of Ghuzni, on the morning of the 231 July, by storm, The gates were blown in by theengineers. under the command of Major Thompson, the storming party utnder Brigadier Sale advanced, supported by the main army, led by Sir Willoughby Cotton, but under the immediate command of Sir John Keano himself; and in less than two hours of hand-to. hand contested struggle, the British standard waved upon tihe citadel.

Bushranging. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
BUSHRANGING &nbsp; The apathy of the Government must soon give.place to activity, or the ruin of. the settlers in the interior will be inevi table. We heard, by the last overland arrival from Port Phillip, that in, the interior neither the'persons lnor the pro perty of any individuals were made much of by the diflfrent gangs that infest the unprotected parts of the colony. A few weoks back, and the most daring highway robberies wer9' committed in the very teeth of the polione, and within a few miles of Sydney. The letters from the country teon with "* Bushranging, mur dler, and robbery."' At Newcastle, by the fortunatoe '.look ou~'" of a ship's crew, the robbery, and most probably the murder, 'f an old lady was prevented, and the ruiintus taken. At Goulburn, Seotchic (Thomson) and his followers set fire to overy house that upon his attacking it refused to surrender. In several encoun ters with inoefficient police, these deter mined villains eame oil' unhurt. The most daslard...
Ejection of Tenantry. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
Ejection of Tenantryp IV ATERFORD.-We have roeci' cd from our Dungarvan correspondent a long and rather complicated account of an ejection of tenants on parts of the estate of Sir Nugent Humble, at Garrynageara, in the immediate vicinity of Dungarvan. Over scenes of this description the heart sickens, and fain would we believe, for the sake of humanity, that the picture of forlorn wretchedness drawn by our ta lented correspondent is too highly co loured. We shall give the facts. It appears that Mr. Lewis Fitzmaurice, a respectable Protestant trader at Dun garvan, became a few years ago the lessee of these lands, under the courts, during the minority of Sir Nugent Humblo. The most choering anticipations were on tortaiond of the young baronet, of whose disposition report spoke most favourably; and when he had attained his mn,jority a surrender was olffered of those lands by the tenant, on receiving remuneration for the crops in the ground. The answer of the young baronet was, that he ...

FURTHER PAIRTICULARS CAPTURE OF WHITTON AND DEATH &nbsp; OF SCOTCHIE. Sergeant Freer and a private of the Goulburn mounted police, assisted by Mr. Thomas Magennis, the son in law of Mr. Samuel Blackman of Biggar, came up to Whitton's party on Friday last, about miles to the North West of Goulburn, and bor- dering on the Lachlan district. The bushrangers were on the way to their old bait, after murdering Mr. J. K. Hume, Mr. Oake's servant, firing Mr. Oake's house and property, and encountering the gallant Mr. Oliver Fry, where Scotchie was shot, and his body thrown by the rest of the party into the fish River. The three bushrangers had alighted, and had just partaken of some tea, when the two mounted policemen, Mr. Magennis, and a native black, got sight of them. The police seeing that Whitton's party were arranging their saddles, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; and just ready to mount their horses, put spurs to their own horses and rode up-calling out to the rob...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
I EW Z.EALAND. (From a Correspon dent.) IT appears that the now company, which was recently formed by a number of gentlemen in Sydney, as alluded to in a communication from a correspondent, inserted in our jpurnal the number be fore last, has adopted the title of *' The Polynesian CG'apany." We understand that they combine bonsiderablo wealth with great commercial influence, having embarked a capital of £50,000 in the un dortaking-; and that two of its members, Messrs. -lHughes & Hosking, will be the resident managers and directors in Syd ney, whilst Mr. ROLLA O'FARRELL will manage and direct the affairs in New Zealand. Fromn the information which we have received as to the intentions of the company, .we have every reason to believe it will be instrumental in pro moting the interests of many persons leaving this colony to settle in New Zealand; in which case there can be little doubt that the enterprize of the firm will, as we hope.it may,.bo.crownud with success.
