MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

YVISCELLANEIA. THE COMPOSITOR.- Lot not the com positor be confounded with the printer or pressman. These two agents of a most marvellous art are sepa rated by an immense interval in typographical importance. The one presides over the first trans formation which speech undergoes-the other only directs the machine, which reports it in a thousand echoes. Mechanism already begins to deprive the latter of his occupation ; without his assistance the ink is now spread over the types; without his aid the paper is placed upon the form, slid under the press, and given forth, by the mute instrument, with the stamp of thought and the voice of genius. Thus the pressman finds his department invaded by a workman more laborious than himself, and not, like him, subject to hunger, fatigue, and sleep. The compositor is beyond such competition ; he may defy the power of matter to supply the place of his intel lectual activity. There can exist no subtle combi nation of springs and wheels to enable the ...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

Port Phillip. We have received Port Phillip papers to the 10th instant, butthey do not contain much local information, although the reasoning portion of them is very spirited. The Port Phillippians have completely tamed the late lion of the Sydney Gazette, and all classes in M olbourne seem to have only one object in view-the " advance ment of Happy Australia." We make a few extracts. The sale of governmentcountry sections took place on Wednesday last, at the temporary Custom-house, in Queen street. The competition was very brisk, and the prices realised were upon the whole much greater than what was antici pated, notwithstanding the absence of the Sydney speculators, who. it is understood, had embarked in the William Metcalfe and Jetoess, to attend these sales, but which vessels have not yet made their appear ance.

Police Office. Saturday, the 22nd of February. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

Police Office. Saturday,' the 22nd of February. Two policeme inamed James Hayes and Charles Simpson, were placed at the bar' on' the charge of assaulting Mr. Campbell, under the following aggra vating circumstances. It appeared that on the night of Thursday last, these two men, accompanied by a Bathurst Constable named Aldridge, entered the house of Mr. Magrath, on the Race Course, where the prosecutor and his wife were lodging, and after a rough examination of one or two other of tihe ten ants, effected a forcible entry into Mr. Campbell's room, whom they immediately dragged from his bed and handcuffed, exclaiming that he was a runaway convict and a bushranger, and holding a pistol to his head. In all this violence the prisoner, Hayes had been by far the most active, seconded by Ald ridge, but Simpson had carefudlly held back, protest ing against the violent lengths to which the others had gone, and declaring that Mr. Campbell was not the man they pretended to suspect. All this, as...

No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

No. 3. EoucATrroN IN EN.AND-T'IEE CI?wRcu.-" The following sketch will show more clearly than any thing which we could say upon the subject, the state of education in England, when, for over 300 years, it has been left to the superintendence of parsons exclusively. See the fruit of their instructions and then let any one say if the education of the rising generation should be continued under their control. We quote from the thid publication of the "Central Society of Education," and from a paper on the state of Kent, where Thoem, lias Courtney, obtained so many devoted followers :-Once (says the writer) being in a beer-shop in Dunkirk, where four or five persons were present, 1 expressed, in the course of conversation, some hesitation to give credence to the existence of this belief. Several of them aflirmed that there was no doubt at all about the matter, and that they had often conversed with believer in Thom's divinity, who begged them, as they minded their sal vation, to join th...

(From the Colonist.) Captain Hobson has informed the Eu ropeans in New Zealand, "that any purchases of land fairly made heretofore, will not be interfered with, but that henceforth no purchases from the natives will be valid." One of our correspon dents, who declares himself an enemy to Popery, complains loudly of the neglect which the now colony experiences at the hands of the Protestant Church. He writes us from Kororarika, and says, " Wo have here five Roman Catholic priests and a bishop, and they have estab lished an hospital for the sick New Zea landers, and have a surgeon to wait upon them. The missionaries (Protestant, we suppose) are three miles from us. Before the priests came, we used to have service once every Sunday, when it did not rain, but since they have been here, service has been performed twice, rain or shine." We are very happy, for our correspon dent's sake, that the arrival of the priests has induced the missionaries to become more zealous, and we cannot but co...

(From the CovnUlE, January 31.) CATTLE AND SIHEEP.--Mr. Macmi chaels's sale at Mawle's, on January 28th, was remarkably well attended, and the prices equal, and in some instances better than his former sale at the Cross Marsh, on the 16th instant; everything was sold, and had there been more, they would have met with ready sale :-Wethers, 10s.; maiden ewes, 18s.; lambs, (ewe and wether,) Os.

(Fronm the COLONIAL TIMES.) Again has the annual epidemio, geno rally termed the I?fluenza, visited our capital, and the sickness thereby pro duced is very general, although, we are happy to say, not so sweepingly fatal as it was last year. Yet death has not been idle, nor have its shafts been powerless; and we have lost several well-known and esteemed individual. Amongst the younger branches of families the suffering is very great, and many deaths have en sued. The disorder, however, we are happy to say, is on the wane, and when the coyler weather comes on, it will, we doubt not, totally disappear. HORRIBLE DEPRAvITY.-Yesterday morning, Mr. Paul, superintendent on Mr. O'Connor's farm, at St. Peter's Pass, called at the men's harvest, when he had a few high words with one of them named George Pettit. The men went to their work, but Pettit soon after returned to the hut, armed with a gun, and told Mr. Paul to say his prayers, as he meant to shoot him. Mr. Paul, who had his hand up in...

Sydney Market. February 24, 1810. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

Eig'nep JswEltet, February 2.1, 1810. A fuether reduction has taken place in the price of Flour since our last publication, and the first quality is now generally to be had for 30s. per 100 lbs. A further reduction we are inclined to isma. gine can only at present be effected by large im portations which do not appear likely to take place. t'he price of grain is still the came, and will not probably be reduced, unless more of the new crop is brought into the market, a large crop of maize is expected. A trifling advance has been made in the wholesale price ot Irish Butter. Great variation is expected in the price of Rum, although none as yet has taken place.

Sketches in Sydney. No. X. THE JETTY. At the left of the proposed Circular Wharf stands the Government Jetty, composed of some three or four hundred planks, and a rail for the benefit of the lW'aterman's arms.
