(From tihe Dublin Review.) --Ma Cout.ttL.v, who has been received into the Catholio Church at"Rome, is a native' of Philadelphia. Ilts father wais an elder in one of fthe Presbyterian churches in that city, but le was himself bred an Episcopalian. Having :i;kes orders, he was, after repeated evidences of unyielding virtue and superior talent, appointed to the rectorship of the Protestant Episcopalian congregation at Natchez, in the statie of Mississipi. Of his conduct in that batlion, Dr. Orey, Protestant Bishop of 'Ten uessee, after visiting the diocese of IMississipi, maide a report in the following terms:-".l take great pleasure here in bearing testimony to' the faithful labours of the rector of this $parish. With real satisfaction I listened to tlie pious instruction, the affectionate expostu laitins, the impressive warnings, which marked the ::character of his addresses to his people. Great is the responsibility, and awful the' reckoning, which await the neglect or maisim prove...

Thy'God's and inuih's---T " . - . .. - . , SuAKSPEAR- ' The Conductors of the Press, as is .usual upon-a change of Ministry, are busily ;occupied in predicting who is to succeed Lord Melbourne at the helm of public. affairs; how long his successor will be able to hold the reins of government, and to whom, in turn, he will have to-give place. For our part, happening to know more' about the past, and the: present; than the future, we are unable to say precisely whether the Tories will have been able to form a Cabinet, much less how long they may hold office, or whether, in fine, they shall be succeeded by the Radicals or'Whigs. Nor, in fact, do we conceive 'that it is a matter of very great importance under what designa tion the. Ministry..nfay choose.to be called. .

Supreme Court. Before Mr. Justice Willis and a Civil Jury. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Supreme Court. Before Mr. Justice Willis and a Civil Jury. The Attorney General moved that James Charles Russell, of Pitt-street, Druggist, be required to plead to an Information charging him with misdemeanor. Mr. Justice Willis observed that, as he un derstood, a special Plea and Demurrer would be filed to the information, it might, probably, be desirable to have the case argued and dis posed of before a full Court, so that all parties might have the benefit of the experience of three Judges instead of one only. Mr. Windeyer, who appeared ex-council for Russell, stated that he agreed to the suggestion of His Honor, as he would, in the meantime, be able, fully, to study his client's case, and reduce his line of defence into a more con nected form, as in its present shape his argu-. ment would occupy the Court from four to six hours. The Attorney General stated, that he was now prepared to try the case, and he should be equally satisfied with His Honor's decision as that of the whole...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Local Intelligence. We have been favored with the perusal of a communication from Yass, dated the 17th inst., wherein it is stated, that the blacks attacked a few day ago, a shepherd of Mr. Edward Ryan, of Galong, who was in charge of a flock of sheep, which had been sold to Messrs. Hurley and Fennell. They killed and carried away several sheep, and scattered the remainder of the flock. Mr. Ryan lost no time in obtaining a warrant, and proceeded along with the Chief Constable and a party of Police, in pursuit of the depredators.           It appears by the Gazette of to day, that constable Murphy, who was tried for per jury, has been discharged from the Police, notwithstanding his acquittal, and Colonel Wilson's belief of the man's innocence of the charge. Colonel Wilson ought to be able to form the most correct opinion as to the man's character, and if he conceived that Murphy was both morally and legally innocent, wh...

Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Concert.   Dr. Reid's Concert took place according to announcement on Wednesday, on which occa- sion a most numerous and brilliant assemblage was present. We may look upon this concert as the first introduction into this colony of that style of orchestral accompaniment generally known under the designation of the German School. Orchestral music, in its present accep- tation, is comparatively of modern invention. Before the end of last century, a harpischord, or at most a first and second violin, a tenor and   a bass, moving in simple harmony, were all that the greatest composers could avail themselves of, to give effect to their conceptions. The introduction of wind instruments playing dis tinct parts, and thus enriching the harmony by producing innumerable new and beautiful effects, we owe to Haydn. This wonderful genius pur- sued his researches into the regions of harmony, to an extent alike unknown to his predecessors and contemporaries, until towards th...

Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

In the House of Commons, on the 19th April, Mr.Sheil presented a petition from the Irish     tenantry of Lord Lorton, complaining of the manner in which they had been recently ejected from their respective holdings. The petition stated, that "on the 4th of April last, Mr. Thomas Courtenay, the agent of Lord Lorton, attended by the High Sheriff of the County Longford, and various troops of horse and foot, had turned the petitioners out of their houses; all of which had been since levelled with the ground, so that there were now only six houses left standing in the village of Bally- namuck. The petitioners stated that they were unconscious of the commission of any crime; and that they believed they had been ejected for no other reason except that the were Roman Catholics. They further stated, that they had been led to that belief because the Roman Catholic tenantry only had been ejected from Ballynamuck, and because their holdings had   been give...

Commercial Information. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Commercial information. The barque Araidne sailed from Greenock, in Scotland, on the 10th of April, for South Australia, having on board 130 passengers. The passengers by that vessel will be found useful to the settlement of South Australia, as they are generally composed of the respectable class of Scotch small farmers, and they possess industry and some capital. They also take out with them the necessary seeds and im plements required on new farms. Several other vessels were expected to sail from the Clyde with emigrants during the months of May and June. The Fair Barbadian sailed from Gravesend, for New South Wales, on the 16th of April. The Kinnear sailed on the 20th April for Sydney.   The Caroline sailed for Sydney on the 4th of May. The Bussorah Merchant, with numerous emigrants, left Bristol, for Sydney, on the 15th April.       The Sesostris sailed from Plymouth, for Syd- ney, on the 6th May. The ship Lady Raffles, with em...

Customs' Regulation Bill Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Customs' Regulation Bill Committee. Report from the Committee of the Legisla- tive Council appointed to take into considera tion the 50th clause of the Customs' Regulation Bill ; to inquire into the state of the Law as re gards the advantages secured to vessels in the coasting or Colonial Trade, and as to the pro priety of entitling to those advantages, vessels trading between this Colony and the other Australian Colonies, and Van Diemen's Land, and likewise New Zealand, and any other Is lands in the Pacific Ocean, on which there are no public Settlements, European or Ameri can ; and vessels employed in the Whale, Seal, or Sea Elephant Fisheries ; and to examine evi- dence, and report. Your Committee, having maturely consider ed the several points to which their attention was directed, are clearly of opinion that New Zealand, and the other Islands in the Pacific Occean, can be considered in no other light than as foreign countries ; and that the Trade between those countries and New...

European Intelligence. Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

European Intelligence. Great Britain. On the 7th May, Lord John Russel an nounced the resignation of ministers in the fol- lowing words : "Sir,-I wish to make a communication to the house, in consequence of what took place last night on the motion of the right honorable baronet opposite, for the rejection of the bill to provide for the government of Jamaica. Sir, it will be evident to this house that that was a bill requiring more than ordinary sup port-more than ordinary confidence-and it has met with less support and less confidence on the part of this house, than that which has usually been given to her Majesty's ministers. It has therefore become their duty to consider in what position they are placed with respect to that bill. It would undoubtedly be in their power to proceed to another stage of that bill, and again to ask the opinion of the house on the question : but we see no reason to suppose that the judgment of the house upon a second trial would be different from that wh...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

New Zealand.     We have been favoured with the perusal of a letter, dated Bay of Islands, July 18, from a gen tleman who has lately gone down on a visit to New Zealand to see the country, from which we are permitted to make the following extract. "We have had a good run from Sydney to Ho kiangu, where we arrived on the Saturday week after leaving Sydney. We remained for a few days at that side of the island and walked across the country to this place. We passed the first night at the residence of Baron de Thierry, who gave us a most hearty welcome, and en tertained us in an hospitable manner. The Baron is a most gentlemanly and well-educated man; he is still devising projects respecting New Zealand, over which he fancies himself yet destined to rule. From what I have seen of the island I have not been disappointed in my expectations. I should much prefer it to New South Wales. The climate is, I think, better, and the land in some places exceeding ly fertil...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Van Diemen's Land. Died-On Friday morning (Aug.9). the Reverend Phillip Connolly, aged 54, for many years Catholic Clergyman of this Colony. On Tuesday evening and Wed nesday morning the body in its last habita- tion lay in the Catholic Chapel where it was visited by numbers of persons. - Agreeable to the custom of the church, masses were said by the Rev. Messrs. Therry and Butler, for the deceased, but high mass could not be celebrated for want of a sufficient number of clergymen. About two o'clock on Wednesday the body was removed to the Catholic burial ground, followed by forty-two couples of the princi pal inhabitants of the town, the procession being closed with the troops. We were much gratified to observe amongst the   mourners persons of all sorts, Catholic, Episcopalian, Presbyterian., Wesleyan, &c., all of whom appeared to forget their polemical differences of opinion, in their desire to pay the last sad offices of respect to an old and lamented Coloni...

Rome. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 23 August 1839

Extract of a letter from Rome, dated the 23d of March: - + "Never at any period has this city been so crowded as at present, and the arrivals seem to be daily increasing. One of the singular effects of this influx, is, that several persons are actually compelled to metamorphose their car riages into lodgings, and remain in the streets until their friends are fortunate enough to pro cure smelting in the shape of apartments, which, though frequently of the meanest des cription, Nobles, Gentry, &c , are happy to obtain at any price. Amongst the various pre sentations this week to His Holiness, I noticed that of James O'Connell, of Lakeview, county Kerry; John Maloney, Esq., of Ballinboy, county Cork; Richard Gore Daly, Esq., county Galway; with some other Irish gentlemen. Mr. O'Connell has been, I understand, travelling for his health, which is quite restored, and he leaves immediately after the ceremonies of the Holy Week en route for the "Emerald Isle."
