Country News. Pass. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 February 1840
Country News. Thanks to the honest portion of the Sydney press, the southern districts have been visited by the Com- mandant of Mounted Police, whose observations and representations will, it is confidently expected, cause a party of mounted police to be stationed again at Yass, or at some other place in that district. It is admitted on all hands, that since the withdrawal of that force from Yass, the district and the adjoining one of the Lachlan, aye, and part of the Goulburn district, have not been clear of bushranging. It is not, be assured, on wild cattle these worthies subsist; they will not trouble'themselves to hunt cattle while they can get plumb-puddings at certain sheep stations, whose proprietors figure at tournaments in the mother country. Letters have been received by Mr. Fry, and by Messrs Magennis and Oakes, from the Government, thanking them for the part which each took in the suppression and capture of Scotchie and Whitton's gang. It is currently reported, and earne...
Money Market. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 February 1840
TIlE statement of affairs of the Bank of the United States, which we publish this morning, his produced considerable discussion in the City ; and although doubts, as we anticipate, are expressed as to the value of the d333,000,000 of bills, and d17,00,000 stock accounts, taken as assests, yet the balance-sheet on the whole has given general satisfaction, and removed much of the misapprehen sion which existed as to the true position of that establishment. The amount of engagements is seen to be limited in cont parison with its resources, and it has occasioned some surprise, that an institu tisn possessed of such ample means, should have found it expedient to sus pend specie payments. We .formerly observed, that this stop was adopted as soon as the directors were made aware, that their drafts on Paris had been dis honoured, and that it had become a more matter of choice whether they should then go on paying in specie and compel their American customers to re deem their obligations at ...

POETRY. AN HOUR IN THE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 February 1840
PO ETIY. AN HOUft IN THE MOUNTAINS. High amid the mountain ridges I have climb'd and stand alone Where the mist the torrent bridges In a world of stream and stone. Dark ravines, and summits hoary, Downward steeps that scare the view, Blocks whose sculpture hides a story Human wisdom never knew; Clouds that yield no voice of thunder, Shifting isles of wind and rain, Sunny gleams, with showers of wonder, Opening wide the distant main; Lonely vastness, might unmeasured, Deep ye 'fill the labouring breast'! In your halls, uncouth and treasured, rowers that make us gravely blest. While along the chasm before me Sounds the torrent's endless voice, There's a rainbow arching o'er me, And in air my dreams rejoice. From their wizard cauldron boiling, Ghostly vapours roll and swell, Round each crag.and buttress coiling, Sealike pouring through the dell. Now again they flit and vanish, And the green hills dawn anew, And exulting sunbeams banish All the landscape's deathlike hue. Earth and sky, ...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. East Mailand, 12th Feb., 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 February 1840
To. he Editor of the Australasiun Clhonicle. East Maitland, 12th Feb., 1840. Stn,--Ibeg to'bring to your notice the conductof the Episcopalian Minister of this town; and, if you think fit, you are at liberty to publish the same, for I can vouch for its truth. A few days ago, a person residing at Morpeth died, and the family of the deceased sent for .the Rev. Mr. Blain (Presbyterian Minister); he ac cordingly attended the body to the grave, where he was met by the Protestant Minister., Mrr Rusden, who demanded (.in a most imperious manner) by what authority he came there 1 Mr. B. replied he had been sent for. This put the Rev. Mr. R. in a rage, and he began to reprehend in the strongest lan guage Mr. B.'s interference ; and, also wenteso far as to blame Mr. .Blain for going about among the poorer classes, to learn their distresses "and relieve them. About an hour afterwards, Mr. R. overtook Mr. Blain, on the road to Maitland, and suddenly turned his horse round, and again, in the mos...

LOCAL. HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR has granted a pardon to William Cum- mings, who was (from an accidental error in conducting the defence) brought in guilty of stealing a horse, at last sessions of the Supreme Court.- We understand that after the sentence had been passed, evidence was produced which left no doubt in the minds of the Governor and Chief Justice of Mr. Cummings' in- nocence. EXTENSIVE SYSTEM OF ROBBERY DISCOVERED.--In consequence of the information of Mr. Weller, senior, of Princes-street, his stables and the apart- ments occupied by his men were subjected to a strict search by the police, when a quantity of stolen goods were found, part of which were identified by the serjeant of police who conducted the search as the property of himself and his brother, whose lodgings had been robbed some time since, and the greater portion of the remainder by gentlemen on whom rob- beries have of late been committed.

WEST INDIES. SLAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 February 1840
WEST IZNDIES. SLAVERY. From the Trinidad Standard. Of all the risks to which the Planters were exposed by the abolition of Slavery in the West Indies, that of an unfaircom. petition on the part of slave-holding States in the production of their own greatstaple -Sugar, was the most serious. It was then urged, and has since beeoon partially demonstated, that without the power of coercion, labor could not be obtained from the negro in the manners and with the constancy requisite for a profitable cultivation of the staple, I} was well known that there wvas a poiit id the price of the article, at wvhicoh the valud produced by scarcity, would be stopped by a reduction of consumption and de mand.; it was also known that this point in the price, would not be sufflioient to meet the corresponding increised cost of production, which would result from labor obtained at high money -wagesar' and in a desultory, ineffeoti've' mhnner. The Plan. ter did not expeit 'thai, when such a state of things...
The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 February 1840
Sydney: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY '18, 1840. 'itsE ;prejudices "of party-writers, abstractingfrom the regret that must be felt at their mischievous effects, are often amusing. In this colony they are probably displayed in hues more various than in any otheripart of the world; but the.most conspicuous of them have been simultaneously displayed-in yester day's Herald. They are the anti-Irish prejudice, the anti-Gallican prejudice, thile anti-Catholic pre judice, the anti-Emancipist prejudice, and, perhaps Worst of all, the prejudice against the interesting but infamously abused Aborigines. Thus, if an emigrant ship arrives, with lots of subjects clad in the graceful and picturesque Sussex frock, no matter if they are found rolling drunk-on the streets next day-no matter if our police'magis trates be kept all day upon the bench disposing of them-they have answered the. magic questions, ",Where are you from? Kent.- Can you'read or write ? No. What religion are .you of? The Church." All is then ...
