The anguish you must feel, when those details shall havRe reached you, has already brought tears to my eyes; but the thought, that when you shall read this letter I shall be in heaven to intercede for you, has con soled me both on my own account and on yours.

LOCAL. LAW OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR.— [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

LOCAL. LAW OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR. In summing the evidence of a case before the Su preme Court yesterday, His Ilonour the Chief Jus tice remarked, that it was not illegal or faulty for a debtor to satisfy the claims of any one of his cre ditors to the prejudice of the rest, provided the same be done under actual fear of his adopting immediate measures of severity for their recovery. We have been informed that the water pipes at the Race-course are in a very neglected state, and that, in consequence of the rust whclh has accumulated in them, the flow of water is very slow. By this means, the water carriers must experience an unavoidable delay in getting their load, which loss of time they do not fail to make good at the expence of the public.

THE EMANCIPISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

THE EMANCIPISTS. Learn we from them, that truth least understood, Man is most great while struggling to be good." BULWER The unceasing endeavours of men in civilized life to acquire property, and that influence and respect which usually accompanies it, have produced so many evils in society-evils which extend through all its ramifications-that philosophers have often doubted whether it were not better to abandon civi lization altogether and relapse into the savage state. And, assuredly, he who watches the course of am bition's slave, how low he will stoop to obtain a firm base on which to fix the ladder by which he would climb to distinction, hesitating not to employ the arms of bribery and perjury to accomplish his pur pose-he who observes the anxious forethought of the merchant, absorbed in calculations as to the most effectual means of ruining a multitude for his own aggrandisement-he who is initiated into all the mysteries of the shop and the counting-house, which mysteries are ...

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

Cape of Goodb ?ope. Our prospects are now infinitely better than they were at the commencement of the year. The crisis has passed, and henceforth we expect to behold South Africa making rapid strides in the march of pros. perity and improvement. If the closing season teemed with misfortune, it also brought forth the most important and beneficial results. That base and contemptible clique, which sat like an incubus on this country, has been struck to the earth, never again to exercise its baneful influence. The truth is at length gaining the ascendant over that mass of falsehood, in which its enemies have managed to envelope the affairs of this colony. The people of England are beginning to understand the true cha racter of our politicians of the London Mlission, who make their sacred office serve as a cloak for the darkest designs and most inordinate ambition. Let it be remarked that we mention only the " politi. cians of the London Mission," for we are far from wishing to bring a c...

To Ithe Editor of Ithe Australasian Chronicle. " What is that you read, my lord?" Hamlet.-" Words, words, words I" Mn. Eosrrnn,-Having arrived in your Colony about a month ago. I was surprised to find that your Australians, after the example of brother Jonathan, have added several very expressive words to our lan guage-such as "bounce," "gammon," "bail up," &c. I, of course, made haste to enquire the meaning of the new vocables, and have found out that of most of them; but I have seen one word prefixed twice a-week to a series of articles (de onmni ente et quibusdaum oalis). in one of your contemporaries, which I can find'nobodyable to explain; it is the word "polifics." I hope you will have the goodness to explain it for the benefit of any new-cominer, who, as well as me, may be puzzled to understand its meaning.-I am, Sir, yours, PIIILOLOGOS. [We give it up.-Eo.J

forgcr IwQEMce gain ! The Gazette re-publishes a letter of this con victed forger to Daniel O'Connell, in reply to his letters to the Methodists. A sample taker at random from Mr. M'Ghlee's letter, must con tent our Readers: " O cursed, dark and damnable apostacy-mes senger of death-minister of hell-that shuts out the light and glory of this great salvation from tho sinner's hope, and substitutes the lying traditions, wafers, rags, oils, masses, mockeries of prayers, mummeries of penances idols, purgatories, to make a merchandise of a man's immortal soul !"

BRISBANE WATER, FEBRUARY 17.— [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

BRISBANE WrATER, EBR UARY 17. A Correspondent at Brisbane Water writes as fol lows:-" Two emigrants named Punch, sawyers, were brought up at the Pulice-ofice, before MIessrs. Holden and Mann, charged by Henry Donnisun, Esq., with breach of contract and absconding in his debt; and their employer having sworn to the charge, were adjudged by the bench to six weeks on the tread-mill. The Punches, however, state, that they fulfilled their cuntract, and that although they left Mr. D)onnison in debt, they had only removed to next farm. They told Mlr.

You find a nigger, no mistaking him. * Where's your mastor? (A black look.) ' Dat missa Rivers.' ''The following little dialogue took place with me.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. The Anglican Church Courts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

DRXTISIH EXTRACTS. Ef flttglican Qlurcub courts. However the Church may be esteemed, or the reverse, and whatever good, bad, or indlifferent may be said of the clergy either of the establishment or sectarian, one thing, or rather two things, we sup. .pose, must be certain, that as courts clerical, or ecclesiastical, are established by divine power and for holy purposes, all proceedings in them must be just and pure, and that all punishments adminis teredl by the clergy must at loeast be mer oiful. On these data, or grounds, let us scan the ease of one Israel Brown, a labourer, with a wife and six small children, in the county of Worcester. Parsons-had never troubled Israel Brown for church rates during the years of our Lord 1835, 1836, and 1837, and Israel, with the children of Israel, were deemed *safo and secure from the black-robed Philistines, called parsons. But human happiness is proverbially insecure, fortune is a fickle jade,vulgarly called a goddess, and the Lord chastises ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

OIIGIlTNAL POETTRIY. As flowers that spring around the dell, Of beautiful hue and fragrant smell, When the summer's sun Imparts his ray O'er the shady retreat from the golden day, Anl the leaves come forth as by magic spell And the plants and boughs so stately swell And the birds delight in their sunny spray, Blithly warbling their short hour away So our hopes rise up, in early dream, In the sweetest visions youth may gleam, When Pleasure she bids us haste enjoy Love, honor and health, without alloy, And held in chains by the fairy queen As she paints to all a lire serene, Our souls elate with extatic joy, Bound to regions where nought con cloy: As the flowers in a verdant grassy glade, Wither and droop andtheir bright tints (ade, \' hen the summer's sun's bright genial glow JlIs left the woods to the winter's snow, And tlheleaves they fall with every blade Of verdant growth, in the lonely shade, And birds retreat as the chill winds blow, Amid their jocund notes now cease to flow So...
