Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 March 1840

Country News. NAMOI RIVER.--We are indebted to a gentleman in Maitland, for the following particulars relative to the melancholy fate of Lieut. A. B. Lowe, R.N . and the disasters caused by the late flood in that quarter. The facts were communicated to our friend in the following letters. Namoi River, February 10, 1840. DEAR SIR,--I wish to inform you a little of the damage the flood has done about this part of the Nanoi. I am next neighbour to Mr. Lowe, he being 10 miles below me, and I am sorry to state that four of his people have lost their lives--viz., his brother in-law, Mr. Irving, Dixon, bullock-driver, the little boy, and very nigh himself. He was washed away on a log, and had to remain from Wednesday, the 29th of last month, until Tuesday last, before any one could swim to assist or give him anything to eat, or clothes to put on--he being exposed to the water and to hunger all that time. He is now in a very dangerous state, being so much scorched by the sun that he is very...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 March 1840

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sin,-I have perused without the least surprise, in your paper of 28th ultimo, the expressions at tributed to the tosHerable (God save the mark) 11. Jones, at a meeting of VWesloyans held on the pre ceding Monday; such disgusting language being perfectly in accordance with that Legislator's well known fanatical and. illiberal feelings, however un becoming the character of a gentleman or a Chris tian; but my astonishment was great indeed, upon learning that ttn officer of the United States Navy, could be found capable of holding forth on that oc casion in the manner described by your correspon. dent, having myself travelled much throughout the United States, and been highly pleased to perceive that nought like religious discord existed there, where, indeed, I believe, it would not be tolerated in any sect. Does Captain Hudson forget that Mary land, Louisiana, and the Floridas, are Catholic States, or that the last survivor of those illustri...

Colonial Hospitals. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 March 1840

-olottinl l?!o0pital¢. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Srn,-You have lately adverted to the privations endured by the unhappy men on road-gangs in this Colony, in regard to bad and insufficient food: allow me to call your attention, and also the atten tion of your readers to the system pursued in some of the Colonial Hospitals. In these establishments there ate generally from five to ten persons whose duty it is supposed to be to see that the patients are attended to, not only in the quality of the foiod supplied them, but likewise in the quantity. In stead of being engaged in any work of this kind, every advantage is taken of, and every opportunity seized, by the whole fry of deputies and under strappers to keep the appetites of the patients within bounds ; and should it so happen that any of the lucky wights is able to muster a few shillings, with which he is anxious to purchase additional food or comforts, ihe must, as a matter of course, apply to some of thie Hospit...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND. No. 13. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 March 1840

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. ON TIIE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND. No. 13. " IHow many perish through vain and curious knowledge I who think little of the service of God, who wish to be esteemed learned, and become foolish in their own conceits."-'A. KePsrws. Szn,--Macedonius, Bishop of Constantinople, who denied "the Divinity of the Holy Ghost,' in the 4th century, seems to be one of those, who through a vain wish of appearing learned in the Holy Serip tures, fell into this egregious error. The Arians elected Macedonius in opposition to Paul theCatholic Bishop of Constantinople. However, the Emperor Constantius expelled both, and forcibly placed Eu sebius of Nicomedia in that see. On the death of Eusebius, the partisans of Macedonius got himn re called, and a violent sedition is the consequence, in which Hermo'genes is killed, who was sent by the Emperor to quell the commotion. The Emperor enra.ged for the murder of his General, lets his sol diers loose on the peopl...

LOCAL. WOLLONGONG.--WO are glad to see by an advertisement in this day's paper, that the new Church at Wollongong, is about to be pro ceeded with. The plan is very beautiful, and will afford an unusually good opportunity of competition for our colonial builders, and for the exercise of the contractors' taste and skill. Mns. CLANCY'S CONCERT on Tuesday was well attended, and, upon the whole, went off in a very satisfactory manner. The Overtures to I're ciosa and the Italiani were well played by the Ceci lians, and Mrs. Clancy's own songs were sung with her usual pleasing delicacy. Madame Gautrot's 1liack-eyed Susan was a very decided improvement upon her former English songs. The young gentle nan who sang Some love to roam, made an excellent debut; let him practice under a good master, and attend to the purity of Intonation, and we venture to predict that he will sing to some purpose in a little time. lie possesses all the requisites of a good singer, but instruction and practice, an...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 March 1840

Sydney: .FIrlDAY, MARICH 6, 1840. -4- WHEN the periodical press is made a medium for the discussion of important questions affecting the public interests, with a view to the remed.y of existing evils, or to the amelioration of the con dition of society, in any of its divisions, its utility becomes equal to its acknow ledged power, and in this sense, a free press is one of the greatest blessings that man can enjoy. One of the strictest duties of the publicist is to expose the evils of any system of public tyranny, inhumanity, or immorality. With this view, we lately published one or two articles uponthe subject of immigration, in which we exposed the cruelty and immorality we were an unwilling witness of during our voyage to Sydney, as a passenger in a ship which carried Bounty emigrants; our evidence being corrobo rited by similar testimony from those who had also been witnesses, and some of them sufferers by similar enormities. Several, of our,contemporaries have made remarks upon ...
