THE FLORAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

THE FLORAL SOCIETT. The usual shlow of this Society took place on Wednesday, and was certainly one of the most delightful treats we have enjoyed in the Colony. Such a concate nation of Nature's choioest productions (including the ladies), is as rare as it is delightful. This society reflects the highest honor on its members and founders, and very shortly will be productive.of the greatest results to the country at large. The cul ture of the vine will -undoubtedly, ere long, engross -the greater part of the agri eulturists' attention. The climate is so perior to the South of France for ripen ing' fruit, and nearly equal to Lisbon. May we not hope then, that by the em ploying of judicious vinedressers and careful vinters, the vine of Now South Wales may be a recherchlrt draught at the tables of the wealthy. The prizes were as follows: Gilintc: First prizro, Mr. Curtis; second and third, Sir John Jats. Julto Jamiros. .f rtitd: Wine Grapes, first, 1. W. Smart, Esq.; second Felix Wilson,...

Sketches in Sydney. No. V. THE SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

Sketches in Sydney. No. V. THE SUPREME COURT. BcEsrne a canopy of green, in front of which is the Royal Arms, sits the Justice, the neat print wig with its profusion of powder, the toga of offlee, both indicating the solemnity of the indivi. dnal and the greatness of Itis ofice. On his right, in a confined desk, with a high cane.backed chair, is a queer little old gentleman, poising his specs upontthe very tip of his nose. ills neck seems to have taken its departure lung since, and his iºead is now resting on his shoulders, which (to do them justice) have beet, for several years rising in the world, and doubttess will, ere long, arrive at that pecnliar height which may be termed the ate plus ultra for shoulders-the ears. He is always occs. pied, though of that kind which answers to the occupatus in otio.

THE TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

THE TRUMPET. The trumpet's voice hath roused the land, Light up the beacon pyre! A hundred hills have been the brand, And waved the sign of fire. A hundred banners on the breeze Their gorgeous folds have cast And, hark!-was that the sound of seas? A king to war went past. The chief is arming in his hall, The peasant by his hearth; The mourner hears the thrilling call, And rises from the earth. The mother on her first-born son Looks with a boding eyce They conic not back, though all be won, Whose young hearts leap so high. The bard has ceased his song, and bound The fatchion to his side; E'en for the marriage.altar crown'd, The lover quits his bride. And all this haste, and change, and fear, By earthly clarion spread! How will It be when kingdoms-hear The blast that wakes the deal? Ms IIESIANS.

POETRY. LAKE OF THE DISMAL SWAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

PO ETRY. LAKE OF THE DISMAL SWAMP. They made her a grave too cold and damp For a soul so warm and true; And she's gone to the Lake of the Dismal Swamp, Whoro all night long, by the fire, fly lamp, She paddles her white canoe. And her fire-fly lamp 1 soon shall-see, And her paddle I soon shall hear; Lung and loving our life shall be, And ['ll hide the maid in a cypress tree, When the footstep of death is near; Away to the Dismal Swamp he speeds His path was rugged and suro, Through tangled juniper beds of reeds, Through-many a fen where the serpent feeds, And soan ne'er trod before! Anl when on the earth he sunk to sleep, If sleep his eye-lids knew, Hle lay where the deadly vines do weep Thnir venomous tears-sad nightly steep The flesh with blistering dew! And near him the sea-wolf stirred the brake, And the rattlesnake breath'd in his ear, Till he, starting, cried, from his dream awake, "Oh! when shall I see the dusky lake, And the white canoe of my dear?" lie saw the lake, and the ...

John Pranks, a runaway convict, was placed at the bar charged with robbing the Yass Mail, and assaulting W iliam Lngley, the mail driver from Yas, to Goulburn, on tie 15th of October last. The jury at first found the prisoner guilty, but afterwards, at the direction of Ilia Honoe, returned a verdict of not guilty, on account of their being no proof with evidence as to whom the mail ac tually belonged, although it was stated in the itdictment to have been the property of the Post master-Gentetal.

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

QrOftia. H.1.f. ships of war the Volage and the Ilyaciynti, having loft the Macao roads on the 28th of October, did not arrive at the Byguo till the 2nd of November. Cap tain Smith on that day sent a dispatch to the Commissioner at Chumpo, demand ing that the Commissioner should with draw his threat of burning the English fleet now at I-Hongkong, and allow them to remain there unmolested till the orders of the home government had been re ceived, or other arrangements made; that if those threats .were not withdrawn, Captain Smith would be obliged to take measures for the safety of his countrymen. Upon this the Chinese requested 1-. M. ships of war to remove some way further down the Rogue, which wish was coin lied with, Captain Smith dropping down three miles, waiting for a reply. The despatch of the Captain was however the next morning returned, unopened (we believe), and twenty-nine war-junks were seen coming down upon the two ships. Captain Smith again sent a letter to the Chinese...

DUELLING. THE MARQUIS OF LONDONDERRY AND THE CLERGY OF RIPON. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

DUELL 11G. THE MARQUIS OF LONDONDERRY AND TILE CLERGY OF RIPON. From the Morning Chronicle. Some of the clergy seem egregously to misunderstand the terms of the alliance which subsists between a considerable portion of their reverend body and the rory faction. The recent remonstrance of the clergy of Ripon, Thirsk, and the neighbourhood, to the number of 31 no. credited sons of the church, with the Marquis of Londonderry, on his late duel with Mr. H. Grattan, is an instance of the extent to which, in some minds, this misunderstanding has reached. It is hard if it be not put right by his Lord ship's very explicit and soldier-like reply. Children may be catechisod, the poor ad monishod and restrained, dissenters a bused, and any latitude of speech and action allowed as to the lower classes, but the spiritual power has received a rap on the knuckles from the King of Tourna ments thit will warn it from henceforth intermeddling with gentlemen who wear her Majesty's rod livery. We cannot ...

Prussian Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

Prussian Politics. The two oldest sovereigns now in Eu rope are at loggerheads-sovereigns whose dominions are separated by mountains, seas, and mighty kingdoms-one the greatest military power of the North, and who can bring two hundred thousand of some of the finest fighting men of the world into the field, and the other, we suppose, has no more than two effective regiments, with a park of artillery, con sisting of six twelve pounders, at his command. The King of Prussia and the Pope of Rome are at it hummer-and tongs, and fighting away. as furiously as pens and ink and prpor can enable them. Fortunately for the Pope, the King of Prussia would find it inconvenient to send his Brandenburghers across the Alps, and, fortunately for his German Majesty, there is yet peace on the banks of Lhe Rhine. Flow long it will continue, we leave to Francis Moore and Mr. Murphy, the almanack-makers, to pre dict. Frederick William II., however, seems resolved to play his last card, and Gregory XVI., ...

The Established Church. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 February 1840

The Established Church. (From the DUBLIN EVENING POST) The Established Church, according to its own showing, is really in a very sin gular position at this moment. In Oxford, the Home of Orthodoxy, the banner of Laud is again unfurled, and some of the most distinguished men of the University are marching under its shadow-Pusey, Newman, Keeble, &e. -and these have been recently joined by Mir. Gladstone, a student, as he calls himself of the University, but withal, student as ho is, a M. P. for Newark. Against this, the [igh Church party, the body, as it would seem, of the Armi. nian branch of the Establishment, most vehemently exclaim-both sections, how ever, stedfastly join in their vituperation of Popery. But against both sections - against High and Low Church, another body of religionists have taken the field the Established Creed of Scotland. These who are generally 'l'orices, denounce Prolacy as a -pestilence, and deride the. Queen as Supreme Head of the Church. But, the...

South Australia. Notes on the Geological Formation of the Country bordering Lake Alexandrina and the Murray. By His Excellency Governor Gawler, 1. In the province of South Australia, a vast marine fossil formation extends from about 1390 15' of longitude, with an imperfectly known width, towards 1410 , the western boundary of the pro vince, and from about 320 40' of lati tude, to at least the latitude of the sea mouth of the Murray. 2.
