Country News. Goulburn, January 25, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 January 1840
Country News. Goulburn, January 25, 1840. [From our Correspondent.] The five bushrangers (Whitton, the man known as Scotchie, and three others) who shot Mr. J. K. Hume went direct to Dr. Gibson's station, at the Fish River, in order to murder Mr. Oliver Fry, the gentleman in charge of Dr. G's. station. Mr. Fry, on perceiving that there were five of the bush- rangers, all well armed and mounted, was just enabled to take refuge in his humble dwelling, the door of which he fastened, he then armed himself &nbsp; as well as he could, the bushrangers taking advan- tage of a stable that stood near Mr. F's abode, got behind it, and commenced firing through the bark or slabs, Mr. F. returning the fire whenever he could get a chance.--It is supposed that this war- fare continued, on both sides, for full two hours the bushrangers finding that they could not get nearer to Mr. Fry's hut, without a certainty of their number being diminished, left the place-a large quantity of blood was fo...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Attorney General's Office, 31st January, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840
To the Editor of the Aostralasian Chronicle. Attorney General's O.ice, 31st January, 1810. Sin,-In your last publication, I have with regret petlsed a paragroph, stating, " it is now well known, that Judge Burton recommended the abolition of the oftice of Solicitor (leneral, in order to eninpet bir. Pltnkett to resign his office, by overwhelming hint with additional duli.A." As my neame ha, been thus mentioned, I think it my duty, to the absence of Judge lItuttn, to Set you right on the aut ject, the statemtent being wholly enoneoul. I was not promoted to the oflice of Attorney General for upwards of Iwo years after Mr. Acstice Burton snagestod the change alluded to, conse qnentlv, lIe could have r.o intention of causing tae to resign an office which I did not hulc; besides, I wan, at that timet, on terms of inlitacy and trientdsahip with that leatned Judte, w hict would ensure hi.disposition to serve rather than to injure nw.

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. "TURNO TEMPUS ERIT." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840
To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. "TURNO TSMPUS gRIT." Stn,-We are indeed a short sighted race of beings. How little do we know this year what may befall us for the next ? One day we are busily employed in planning and building castles in the air, in devising achemes for our future greatness and agrandsmenacnt and in the twinkling of an eye, the visionary fabrio disappears--tlhe spell is dis. solved, and 'all our glory is over i " When the tender hearted writers in the Herald were with all enanestncss recommending Sir Richard Ilnucke to double the weight of the lash, and to nerve the brawny scourget's arm with increased force, they no doubt fancied, that the labours of the lash wotld considerably enhance the lahonrs of mangled convicts; that the number of.cleared sores on their grants would be in the direct propittton of the number of stripes inflicted at l)iecrict Police Sta. lions, that the very increase of their stock would keep a steady pace with the increase of punis...
STUDY OF THE FINE ARTS IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840
STUDY OF TIIHE.INEI ARTS IN ITALY. These hills (the Alban) albound in as pretty bits of the picturesque as a pain tor's eye need look upon.' Indeed, in dependently of the works of art With which this country overflows, the splen did light, the depth and richness of tint, the clearness with which the outline of objects is traced, and the accuracy with which the eye at a glance can define their relative distance -all resulting from the singular transparency of the atmosphere - combine to make Italy the true volume for an artist to study. Of a certainty, nature executes her light and shade with exquisite skill. Here is no obscurity, no faintness, no mist, no haziness, no mingling, confounding, or blending to gether of objects: every thing stands out decidedly and bodily, and in its own in dividual character, distinct in outline, in form, colour and position. Then, if the painter wishes to rise a step in the dignity of the subject hie chooses for his pencil, and, instead of the inanimat...

Don Carlos and Marotto. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840
molt Qarlo0 atsi J1Uarotto. MArOTTO has sucoceded in all his plans. He began by shooting the gone rals who might have opposed the execu tion of them, and then lowered Don Carlos in the opinion of the foreigners, and deprived him of the respect and affection of the army and the people, at the same time corrupting and demoralis ing the troops. His plans being mature, he wrote on the 24th to Don Carlos, in viting him to come to Elorrio on the 25th to preside over a junta of generals who were to assemble there that day. Don Carlos, although convinced of the trea son of his general, complied with the invitation. Relying upon the devotion of his army to his person, he set out, accompanied by his son and the infante Don Sebastian, with an escort of cavalry. On arriving at Elorrio he found six bat talions formed in order of battle, and re viewed them. Mlarotto was by his side. The review being over, Don Carlos ad. dressed the troops as follows, in a melan choly tone: - " Volunteers- Do you ...

1VZZSCELLANTEA. THE INVENTOR O0 PRINTING-At the last Anniversary of the Newspaper Press Benevolent Association, Mr. Lea dur M.P., in alluding to the advantages which result from the art of printing, happily referred to the subscription now going forward on the Continent and in this country, for a monument to the me smory of Jean Guttenberg, the inventor of printing, to he erected at Strasburg, in 1840. The monument consists of a bronze statue of Guttenberg, with a printing press before him, from which he is about to draw a proof, and of four bas-reliefs representing the benefits of printing in the four quarters of the world. It is de signed and modeled by M. David, and is now being cast by M. M. Soyer and Ingle, at Paris. At the head of the auxiliary Committee, in Paris, are the names of Arago, Baron Anthalin, Didot, and twenty or thirty others of the highest eminence in literature and the Arts. An auxiliary Committo is in progress of being formed in London, where subscriptions will...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840
NEW ZEALAND. (From a Correrposdent.) Another family of the human race is to be added to the British empire. Henceforward the New Zealanders will be British subjects. Will this be to them a blessing or a curse? Momentous question I Are they fated, like the ill. starred aborigines of this country, to silent though not the less certain exter mination; or will they receive, in ex change for their land and liberty, the inestimable blessing of Christian civili zation ? How great the alternative! Such are the subjects of reflection which the change about to take place in the position of those islanders suggests. Who will give us a solution? We fear it is to be found in the absence of all manifes tation on the part of Government to pro. vide for their future welfare. How.vaguo are the instructions from the Colonial Office on this head I It may be safely predicated that every art, cunning, and roguery will be in full play, to dispossess these children of naturo of every foot of available lan...

BURWOOD FETE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840
3URWOOD FETE. We have groat pleasure in noticing any such outbursts of the spirit of old English hospitality as that mentioned. at the head of this article, which took place yesterday, at Burwood, on the Parra matta Road, and we are heartily sorry that we have not more frequent opportu nities of so doing.-The whole of the affair was conduoted in a manner that reflected great credit upon the liberality and kindly feelings of the worthy host, Mr. Fowler, who took care that nothing, on his part, should be wanting for the comfort and amusement of his guests. The company was very numerous and re spectable, consisting of about three hun dred indi iduals, a great number of whom came from the neighbourhood of Sydney. For their entertainment a bullock was roasted whole, with a suitable accom paniment of broad and colorial boor; and an excellent match of pigeon shoot iug was got up, which was well con tested, and contributed in no small de gree to the amusement and good humour of the company....
