No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

No. 4. "The Marquis of LAsnowNs, after combating several of the archbishop's arguments, proceeded : Look at the state of ignorance that prevailed in the agricultural districts-look to what had taken place in a part of the country in whlich there were schools, where it might be supposed that education was not only to be easily had, but that its quality would be of such a character as would be of the greatest value to those who had received it. Look to what had taken place only a short year ago in Kent-(hear) -where an exhibition had been made, not only that the people were in a state of ignorance of real edu cation, but of all proper notions of true religion (hear, hear)-where the most absurd and ignorant fanatic that ever existed succeeded in cajoling the people in the most extraordinary way in the world -(-hear). Their lordships must have heard of this person, Thom, who succeeded in inducing a large mass of persons to believe, first, that he was Mr. Rothschild, next, that he was th...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

To the Editor of the Australaslan Chronicle. SSIR,--The high priost of the Sydney Oas?ett gives the important intelligence to its readers, that some dislike to Catholic servants has been imagined amongst the influential and respectable inhabitants, which no doubt means himself and my old retail stationer, and soma other influential, Far-in-the Bush, Esq., whose agent in Sydney is commissioned thus-" I would greatly prefer Scotch, or English, nay, even Irishmen from the North (of John Knox's sect), to any Papists 1" Poor doodle-doo l Can there be no sort of blush brought on his bronzed face 1 Can he not read the letters signed " Ship owner?" Can ihe not read his own anonymous trash in the Colonist, r. Bishop Broughton, and the trouncing punishment measured to him in the review thereof ?

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

(From the Tasmanican Weekly Dispatch.) FLOGGING.-In the police report will be observed the case of a ticket-of-leave man, charged with having given a man in the stocks a pipe of tobacco, and sentenced to receive twenty-five lashes ! This appears to us to be another example of barbarity, deserving to be hold up to the general abhorrence of the public. We will fully inquire into the matter, in order to understand, if we can, what was the enormity of the offence, which required the lash to be laid on the back of a man holding a ticket-of-leave. It surely must have been wrongly described by our reporter, for it is scarcely possible to believe, that any magistrate is now in official existence, who could be guilty of such unnecessary severity-such gross brutality. We will sift this matter to the bottom, and report accordingly. The twenty-five lashes punishment is, in any case, nothing better than judicial torture. It is neither useful as a punishment or as an example. It could only be res...

South Australia. NOTES WITH REGARD TO THE STATE OF THE ABORIGINES ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

South Australia. NOTES WITH REGARD TO THE STATE OF THE ABORIGINES ON THE MURRAY. (From the SOUTH AUSTRALIAN REGISTER.) We have great satisfaction in presenting our readers. with the following interesting Notes of His Excellency the Governor, on the present state of the Natives in the Murray River district: 1. It is evident that the natives very rarely venture upon the great plains of the fossil for- mation, and probably never traverse them in their full extent. 2. In the recent journey the blacks were found to be very thinly scattered on the banks of the Murray. From all that was seen or could he learned there are probably not more than three hundred of them from Pomunda to the Great Bend, a distance of at least 120 miles, Captain Sturt imagines that a great mortality must have taken place since his journey in 1829. The most numerous tribe was at Pomunda. There were there thirty three men and grown-up boys. Afterwards they appeared in parties of three or four fami- lies. Their food ...

Van Diemen's Land. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

Van Diemen's Land. From the Hobart Town Advertiser, Feb. 7. CRICKET. "Attend all ye muses, and join in rehearse, An old English sport never praised yet in verse, 'Tis Cricket I sing of, illustrious in fame, No nation e'er boasted so noble a game." The domain on Saturday last was crowded with persons to witness the match for 100 sovs., played for by the Club of this town. No less than five marquees were pitched for the occasion. One was appropriated to the fine band of the 51st regiment, which played several popular airs. Mr. Parrot, the Secretary to the Derwent Club, had provided a most sumptuous entertainment, and we hear that upwards of 50 persons sat down to a cold collation. Thorn was also an elegant little booth, beautifully deco- rated, in which refreshments were pro- vided all day. The match was to come off at 10 o'clock, but it was much later before the play commenced. We did not witness the 1st and 2nd innings, but should say the play was not what we expected to see. The wi...

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 February 1840

Country News. Two prisoners, charged with the horrid crime of rape, were being escorted, a few days ago, from Queanbeyan to Goulburn. When about midway between both places, the constables in whose charge the prisoners were, halted at a station of Mr. Lith- gen's to get some refreshment. The prisoners watched their opportunity, seized one of the consta- ble's muskets, and murdered one constable. The other constable ran away. The murdered man seized a stick or club, and fought both prisoners, till weak- ness from the effects of his wound, and being opposed to two, compelled him to give up the une- qual contest. In the last session of the Legislative Council, the members were crying out against the mounted police being employed in escorts. O super- lative ignorance ! Who else are fit to go on such duty ? The old police are not fit to guard cats-- many of them do not even know how to load or fire off a gun or pistol.--Correspondent.

BROUGHAM AND O'CONNELL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840

BROUGHAM AND O'CONNELL. Brougham, in his recent rigmarole, had the audacity to threaten impeachment to any ministry that would elevate O'Con nell to the judgment seat. The learned lord, no doubt, is very sensitive on all questions involving the proper discharge of the judicial functions, for no person has better reason, derived from positive experience, to know how much the coun try has suffered from ignorant, flippant, and self-opinionated judges than himself. Perhaps it may not be uninteresting to the public to remind them of both Lord Brougham and the man he has so unjus tifiably attacked, which will serve to show how accession to office is looked upon by both. Every one is aware that on a late occasion, when a vacancy occurred in the Court of Exchequer in Ireland, the office of Chief Baron was offered by the go. vernment to Mr. O'Connell. Everybody knows the many inducements which were heold out to cause his acceptance of the office, and how proudly he refused the tempting offer...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Since the prorogation of Parliament, public meetings and public dinners have been less frequent than usual; but some of them have been of rather a remark able character. We have now before us the report of the anniversary meeting of the Agricultural and Conservative Asso tion of North Essex. A person might imagine from the title of the association that nothing would be spoken of but co-n, cattle, and politics; but so far from this being the ease, these were the topics almost entirely excluded, and nearly the only subject broached at the meeting was the Church. Instead of oxen and sheep, we board of nothing but bishops and parsons, and in lieu of premiums for ploughing and shearing, and rewards for the largest turnips, or best beet roots, we have long addresses upon toleration. If this be the course of agricultural meet ings, by a parity of reasoning, at Bible associations we shall hear of nothing but the fattening of beasts anti the tilling of acres. The Chairman s...

Catholic Affairs. Relation of the Martyrdom of the Rev. John Charles Cornay, Missionary at Tong-King. (CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840

Catholic Affairs. Relation of the Mnartyrdom of the Rev. John Charles Cornay, Mnissionary at Tong-King. (CONTINUED.) " WHEN I was introduced to the Go vernment residence, immense crowds were collected from all sides. It is like a fortified camp, surrounded with a moat; it is about half a league in circumference, and serves at once as a residence for the Mandarins, as Court-house, barracks, prison, and public granary. The ram parts, raised about twenty feet, are form ed of bricks made of clay dried and hardened in the sun; those bricks are less solid than stone, but, considering the feebleness of the means of attack in this country, they are sufficient for the pur poses of defence: the interior of this for tified camp is divided into many closures. I was laid down in front of the Gover nor's house; he is a man about fifty years old, of fine figure, without beard, and of a fairness of complexion not often seen in Tong-King. With an air of gravity he glanced at me and my trappings, and...

'TiHe QUEEN v. PATERSON.-This case, which was decided in the Sessions Court at a late hour on Tuesday evening, by a verdict of acquittal, without examination of the defendant's witnesses, was one of peculiar singularity. The prosecution was commenced at the suit of Mr. Bur dekin, by whom Mrs. Paterson was charged with a breach of the peace. We believe it is not many mouths since a similar prosecution was carried on against the same lady, with the same result. RACE FOR A "W'ARRANT.-A rather curious scene took place in the Police Office on Tuesday, between two women, who having had a quarrel, had each applied for a warrant against the other, and were competing who should be the first to engage the attention of the Bench. Captain Innes declared himself in favor of the one who spoke first I LI...

4I'igitIal to'tvCe0vtonbctucc. Tantire 13ol1tenres. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Ssn,-At a meeting of Wesleyans, held on Mbon day, after an observation of lir. It. Jones, "that it is necessary that great exertions should be made by Protestants at the present time, as there is an evident attempt being made to deluge us with Irish Papists," Captain Hudson is reported to have re marked, " that in this colony, persons can have no idea of what Roman Catholicism is; they must go to countries where it is in force, where it is the established religion, and where it endeavours to destroy and crush every other religion, before they can understand it." Now, Mr. Editor, we are con tent to put up with the observation of MIr. Riclhard Jones, who is a member of Council, and who justly dreads that he will have little chance of protracting his political existence beyond the period when that useless Council shall be abolished ; but we may be permitted to ask by what right Captain Huds...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840

Van fiemen's Land. THE COAL COMPANY.-Wo hear of a coal company getting up, and that "' the Government" has agreed to make over to it, in some way, the very valuable mine we mentioned in our last. We had hoped that the evil consequences felt at Sydney, of letting the government coal mines to a private company, would have prevented a similar monopolizing job, for such it will be found in the end here. At all events, we trust the public are not to be the victims of any ," nipping" attempts. The Government at present furnish the people with coal, delivered at the wharf, at 12s. the ton. We cannot but suppose there will be an especial provision in whatever lease may be bestowed upon this monopoly, which we hear is to be called the Eagle Hawk Company, that their coals shall not exceed a fixed maxi mum.--lfurray's Review.

Music in Germany and England. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840

4Etu;(c in Gsrmang an?b tnglanb. If ever an epoch, in the history of art and science, deserved especially to be characterisod as one of rapid advance to wards perfection it is the present. Indi viduals, no less than numerous and well organised societies, project and carry into execution works of colossal size, the very idea of which would have appalled many of their predecessors. What is worthless among the works bequeathed to us by our forefathers, is laid aside and forgotten, while the valuable is rescued from the rubbish in which it lay buried, and raised higher than ever in the estimation of the intelligent. But of all the arts, music is that, which since the commencement of the present century, has made' the swiftest and steadiest march onwards; and this has been the case especially in Germany. If we examine the progress of the art in its different departments, we shall find it has reached a degree of perfection not easily surpassed. Two schools of music now exist in Germany; t...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840

Sydney: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 18.0. IN noticing the recapitulation of our objections to the Bounty system of Immigration, the Colonist of the 22nd instant stated his opinion, that these objec tions " embraced the whole of the debateable ground," and promised to discuss the subject upon that ground, in opposition to his original plan. In the Clnist of the 26th, he appears to have forgot this determination, and instead of taking our objec tions one by one and " neutralising them," as he promised, lie fixes hisa standard upon the Immigration Report, and " feels that he need go no further to obtain the grounds of a conclusive opinion." This does not appear to us to be the best proof of what our contemporary calls the "shallowness" of our reasoning; nor is a compliment of nearly half a column to the Bishop of Australia and his fellow. labourers the best way of convincing us of the im partiality of his own. But, if our contemporary does not find it convenient to follow us, we shall take th...
