MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840
MVISCELLANEA. MUSICAL TURNSPIT.-Apropos of din ner and accompaniments. I find among my memorandums, extracted from some newspapers, an account of the most sin. gular spit in the whole world, that of the Count de Castel Maria, a very opulent lord of Treviso. This turns no less than a hundred roasts at once, and plays twenty-four tunes at once ; and whatever it plays corresponds to the state of some. thing which is cooking. Thus, a leg of mutton a L' Anglaise will be excellent at the twt Ifth air, a fowl a la Flumande will be juicy at the eighteenth, and so on. When the sirloin is ready, ' O the roast beef' immediately strikes up-I hope, for this is not mentioned in my mann script.--.Diary of a Dilletante. MANUFACTURES.- Manufactures are founded in poverty. It is the multitude of poor without land in a country, and who must work for others at low wages, or starve, that enables undertakers to carry on a manufacture, and to afford it cheap enough to prevent the import ation of the same ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. JOYS OF THE EARTH. "Pleasures are changed into pain; riches perish, and glory vanishes." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 28 February 1840
ORZGZNAL POETRY. JOYS OF THE EARTH. " Pleasures are changed into pain; riches perish, and glory vanishes." HIow short-lived are the pleasures of the earth I They die the moment which succeeds their birth! Ephemeral joys I which bring no real bliss, But plunge their votaries in the deep abyss Of misery, even until doubt and dread Comes o'er each soul, bows each devoted head ; And sorrow sits on pleasure's gaudy throne, In gew-gaw palliment that's not her own. Seek'st thou the pleasures which the world can give? Ts it for these alone that thou would'st live ? Are thy joys only 'mongst the giddy throng, Who feel not, think not, see not, but along The rugged road of life pass heedless on, Seeking new pleasures for the old ones gone ? Who, as.along mad folly's path they go, In scandal deal, and laugh at human woe; Or drown their souls in draughts of sparkling wine,. And health and reason slay on Bacchus' shrine: Who, from the man, sink lower than the brute Mlore dumb than it, more misera...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, MARCH 3, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840
Sydney: TUESDAY, MARCH 3, 1840. VMEN we accepted the challenge of the Colonist, to maintain the position we had taken on the Immi gration question, we thought that our contemporary was prepared to meet us in "prompt debate" upon the merits of the two systems; but we find we were mistaken-he has nothing wherewith to meet us in the shape of argument, excepting such adjectives as "shallow," "unplsilosophical," " clap-trap," "bouncing," "gratuitous," "sapient," &c., with which he besprinkles his columns, usque ad ,nauseoam. It seems his articles for the last fortniglht are merely introductory to the subject, and, even now that he has begun "to redeem his pledge," he does not, as his readers probably expected, take up our first ob jection to the Bounty system, and dispose of it; but, in order to gain still a little more time, and tire us out-in which he will certainly be successful-lie fills lthree columns with a letter of Mr. Nicholas James, which says sot one word on tlhe quest...

Veracity. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840
Veracity. The Sydney Gazelle of Thursday has the follow. ing passage: " A short time sipce, the veracious Chlronicle sta ted that Mr. Justice BURTON recommended the abolition of the oflice of Attorney General, than which a more unfounded lie never obtained insertion in that independent Journal, which is not saying a little." Now we do not mean to say that our contempor ary is what he so often, so unmannerly, and so falsely calls uIs; but surely one of two things we must say, either that the poor man is out of his wits, or that ihe intends his writings to supersede those of Lemuel Guilliver or Baron Munclhausen. The truth is, we asserted that Mr. BuniON recommended the abolition of the office of Solicitor. General, and that statement we believe few will controvert. VWe agree, however, with the Gazettlle, that it would have been more wise for Judge BURTON to have looked for an oppointment elsewhere than to have returned to the Colony. In the same number of tihe Sydney Gazette, we are ...
