And though the government's right to ind. avsuw. edhy the property of chiits, is by the lex fortioris, I think the adouclg of the' Governor rather more atbalantial than a few pipes of tobaoco, or an oil hinunderuss, and a few rtiunis of cartridges. And I amt glad to see that the govirnor undctrstood the oanocturze. Yours, trtly, NO SIARK.

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY IN THE ART OF PRINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY IN TUE A.RT OF PRINTING. A few weeks ago it was announced, through the medium of the public jour. nals, that a new and important process of transfer printing, which bids fair to revolutionize a large portion of the print ing and publishing world, had boon dis covered by the Messrs. Dupont of Paris. By means of this new process, copies of old or new books, engravings, &c., can be multiplied, it is said, to any number. This is effected by spreading a secret composition over the page or engraving of which copies are wanted, which is then laid face downwards, on the litho graphic stone, and by a powerful pres sure the stone retains " with 'scrupu lous precision" the printed charac tors of the original page or engraving. " It is then covered" says the account, " with the same preparation, and it may then print thousands of copies, by the ordinary processes of every sort of litho. gralihy. Fire minutes suffice for both operations. The original engraving may be ...

Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

Varieties. Haydn's Dying Prayer.-The army of Napoleon had been gradually approach ing Vienna, and on the night of the 10th of May, 1808, the French artillery took up its position at Schaonbrun, within two hundred yards of the composer's little garden, in which four shells fell and ex ploded in the course of the night. Its batteries were directed against the city, and Haydn, picturing to himself the horrors of a sacked town, the massacre of his follow-citizens, and the imperial eagle succumbing to the bird of Gaul, raised his feeble hands to heaven, and then tottered with feeble steps to his piano, where he sang with a voice tremu lous with emotion rather than from bodily weakness, the national air composed by himself of " Gott halte den Kaiser," God save the Emperor. This, which he was accustomed to call his prayer, he sang with surpassing expression three times; but the doom of his country was sealed, and a few days after the taking of Vienna the patriotic composer breathed his las...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1840. "I conceive the mere absence of conviction for an offence may be no proof of good conduct; a man may escape the infliction of legal punishment, and yet be a bad character. I mentioned a person having formerly been a convict, to whom I would as soon trust the decision of a cause as any other person."—James Macarthur, Evid, on Transportation, 1837—No. 3,441.

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

LOCAL. ABORIGINES. -We again feel it our duty to call the attention of the proper authorities to the disgusting scenes of aboriginal intemperance, and depravity of which we are daily compelled to become unwilling spectators. Those of our sable brethren whom we have seen in the streets of Sydney appear quiet, inoffensive, and even interesting, while in a state of so briety, but when under the influence of liquor, their conduct becomes at once violent and disgusting. We do not so much blame the sable Bacchanalians as we do thoso who supply thenm with intox icating liquors, for in the latter we view the cause, in the former only its pernici ous effect. In order therefore to remove that cause and thus radically to prevent a repetition of those disgraceful scenes which have of late become so common, we would strongly recommend the due exaction in a few instances of the fine provided by the colonial law for those persons who supply the natives with in toxicating liquors. THE CLOVEN COOT A...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE QUEEN AND HER MAIDS.-Mr. Willis, author of " Pencillings," who is at present in England, gives the follow ing account of the Queen and her maids of honour, in a letter which appears in the last American papers :-' In the course of the evening I found myself vis a-vis in the quadrille to the Queen's most beautiful maid of honour. She is a daugh ter of Lord Rivers, rather tall, and com bining a most majestic enbonpoint of figure with a slightness of limb, and a slender ness and stateliness of neck, seldom seen in such graceful proportion. To the £300 a year which the maids of honour receive for dress, (the Queen, my partner, in formed me, has added another hundred, thinking the sum insufficient. You know probably, that on their marriage they re ceive also a dowry of £1000. Then there are-ladies in waiting, who are of the high eat rank of nobility, and the bed-chamber women, who receive also £300 a-year. and are generally ladies of good birth in reduced circumstan...

Tithe Sale in Carlow. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

Tithe Sale in Carlow. Our readers are aware that there are in Carlow a large number of the class of religionists denominated Quakers, who are conscientiously opposed to any pay ment to the ministe rs of the Established Church, or, indeed, to those of any church. In many instances this is the only point on which the Carlow " Friends" agree with the advocates of the voluntary system and of civil liberty in that cele. bratod county; for it cannot be denied that they are the most immitigable Tories and the most unrelenting opponents the Liberals have had to contend with. There is one among that class of the " Friends" in Carlow, whose sex would induce us to refrain from introducing her name into the columns of a publio journal, did not the openness of her support of Bruon and the Carlow Orangemen show, that on the score of publicity the lady herself has exhibited no sense of shrinking, and more particularly because her name is connected as defendant in the proceedings which have resulte...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

PORT PHILLIP. A society has been formed at Mel- bourne, under the title of " The Australia Felix Pastoral and Agricultural Siciety," on the principles and with the objects of the great Highland Society. SYDNEY MAIL.—No overland mail has arrived in Melbourne from Sydney this week. Whether this delay is caused by the marauding bushrangers, who seem to have it all their own way in the inte- rior of the country, or whether it is the result of some untoward accident by flood or field, we know not; but, considering the time that is occupied in its transit, our desires cannot be characterised as unreasonable, if we insist that instant measures may be adopted to insure its safe transmission, at the periods fixed for its arrival.—Gazette, Jan. 18. ACCIDENT.—While a party, consisting of Mrs. Lonsdale, Mrs. Wills, Mrs. Langhorne, Mrs. Harrison, and Captain Fyans, were returning in a carriage on the night of Monday last from the ball given by the bachelors of this place, and while crossing Swan...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE CRUSADES. I. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 February 1840

ORIGrNAL POETRY. THE CRUSADES. 1. 'Ah, whore is now the spirit's breath That bade the war-cloud, once, to roll? _When glory triumphed, e'o in death, And every martial soul Beamed with a holy zeal to burst, With quivering lance and flaming brand, The chains that held a sacred land In thraldom vile. by ruthless hand Of Infidel accursed: The adored, the weeping, bleeding, earth That gave the infant Saviour birth. It. That voice is fled ! yet whisp'rings soft Like music steals my ear upon; Fond memory tells how monarchs oft, Arrayed in knightly gear, Have couched the lance and strung the bow, And bade the Red-Cross banner wave A signal to the bold and brave, Of Christian clime, to rush and save From grasp of Paynim foe, That mocked the holy dust he trod, The hallowed Sepulchre of God. H I. Then fondly bowed the ocean blue Beneath a thousand gallant sail, And steel-clad warriors, brave and true, The towers of Nion hail. !Pealed the loud trumpet's brazen breath; -Christian and Moslem onwa...

Country News. COWPASTURE, JANUARY, 27, 1840. --MR. EDITOR,--I have not received your two last numbers; the cause I can- not imagine--I am sure the fault does not rest with our Post-master, he is rather attentive. There are several of your subscribers complaining also. I hope, you will not neglect us any more. We have had most beneficial rains for our corn- crops, and winter grass. The Cowpas- ture Bridge is sufficiently repaired for teams to pass over. Mr. Lennox deserves some praise for his exertions, with regard to the bridge, and that exceeding bad piece of road, immediately approaching thereto, which is now equal to the best. Our Protestant brethren have got the start of us in this district. They have built a very neat little chapel in the township. I think we are sufficiently numerous to " go and do likewise." Will the Government assist? We are very much in want of a place of worship, as we have to go from five to ten miles to mass. If you think this worthy of a place in your w...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

MIISCELLA1EA. Thi' lursu GOVEUNME'NT FOMENTING THE RIEULtiON OF 3793.-The parson alluded to in the opening is the late Lord Clonmel:-" The following anecdote, which reflects such credit upon his char actor, was communicated by one of his own relations. Shortly before his death, he sent for his nephew. Dean Scott, got him to examine his papers, and destroy those that wore useless. There were many relating to politics, that disclosed the con duct of the Irish Government at the pe riod of the disturbances in 1791. There was one letter in particular, which fully showed their duplicity, and that they might have crushed the rebellion; but that they let it go on, on purpose to carry the union, and that this was their design. When Lord Clonmel was dying he stated this to Dean Scott, and made him destroy the letter; he further added, that he had gone to the Lord Lieutenant, and told him, that, as they know of the proceeding of the disaffected, it was wrong to permit them to go on-that the Go...

Sydney: .FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1840. WE " observe by an advertisement in to-day's paper, that a general meeting of the Patriotic Association is to be held on the 13th instant. We sincerely hope that every member will be present on that occasion, for assuredly, now is the time to exert every= faculty in the good cause. The ministry are favourable to us, but that is not enough; we are not sure of their stability, and if we were, it is more than- probable that their -good intentions might be frustrated in the House of Lords, unless such a -demonstration is made as will convince their lordships of the determination of the Colonists to have their rights. An opportunity, unusually favourable, also offers, of transmitting the result of the deliberations of that meeting, in the form of petitions or otherwise, to England, and again we say, let the meeting be fulland unanimous. *We would strongly urge the propriety of having branch associations in the various districts, to co-operate with the b...
