Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 August 1839
Van Diemen's Land. &nbsp; In our last ncmber we gave an extract from the Hobart Town Advertiser, in 'whelic it was stated, that a " minister of the Episcopalian Church was most assiduous In his atlentiou" to the late Rev. P. Connelly, while on his death. bed. A correspondent of the Colonist, im proving on this hint, puts forth an account of Father Connelly's conversion of Protestantism, and states, that he aotually sent for ' Parson Bedford the day before his death, who admi. mistered to him the Sacrament." This is the first death-bed conversion to Protestastism of which we have ever heard, although it is very usual for Protestant Divines to recant, their errors in their last moments,-and the only thing that prevents it from forming an epoob in the history, of Protestantism is this:-It is utterly at "variance with fact. It was Father Butler who.admiaistered the, Sacrament to Mr. Connelly.' The'attentioris of Mi. Bedford were simply of a frietndly nature, and are highly credi...

Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1S39. " - Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends, thouti aim'stat, be thy country's Thy God's and triuth's " 8IIAKSPEAnE. As the all-important subject of public Education is just about to be brought before the Legislative Coun cil, we think we cannot better occupy the attention of our readers than by throwing out a few general hints upon that subject. In referring to the "history of the rise and progress of ancient states, we are obliged K ith shame to confess that inexperienced wisdom dictated to the legislators of antiquity a mode of training for youth, more rational and effectual than that which our modern legislators, with all the advantages of a superior philosophy, and 'the expe ricnce of ages, haie been able to pro duce. The former by the establish ment of games and, exercises ad dressed themselves to the culture, not only of the mental faculties, but also of. the physical powers; while the latter, overlooking the national a...

Dr. Broughton's Speech at Parramatta. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 August 1839
Dr. Broughton's Speech at Parramatta. (From the Australian) From Dr. Broughton's statements it appears that many of those whom he num- bers among his own, are but little disposed to submit to his political or party controul -and that his episcopal authority is, when improperly employed, as much despised within the precincts of his church, as it is spurned indignantly without. The Bishop must be fully assured that his petitions and his speeches can be of no avail to attain the object which they profess to have in view. He knows, as well as he feels that he has a magnificent stipend by the year, that he might as well apply for the primacy of the realm, as too propose that his church should be endowed with the fat of this land. The sin of such agitation as he encourages will find no alleviation from the "compunctious visit ings" to which it will render him liable from any temptation to which, from cir- cumstances around him, ecclesiastical pride or personal cupidity are exposed. The mi...
Titles to Town Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 August 1839
Titles to Town Lands. (From a Correspondent.) The very easy mode by-which at one period possession was obtained of the most valuable species of property in New South Wales, and the loose manner in which the Records were at that time kept, are likely soon to be the means of convincing the government and the occu pants of town property, that great care and at tention ought to be on all occasions paid to any transaction connected with real property. At one period, .we believe, it was not unusual for persons to obtain a town allotment upon a mere verbal, application to the Governor, and should His Excellency have happened to give a verbal answer in favor of. the application, the party felt perfectly satisfied, and, without any written authority, took possession of the ground, which he may have described, or endeavoured to describe, and accordingly made improve ments. It frequently-happened, that after a lapse of years, the occupant sold, what he con. sidered, his land, with the improvem...
Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 August 1839
THE BLACKS.- To the British reader we beg to state, that we (though humble, yet we trust consistent) are the only Editor in Austra- lia Felix who attempts to moderate the public feeling against these poor, harmless, except when injured, individuals. And we do it on these grounds :-We came to this spot (now Melbourne) in 1835, and although we were &nbsp; frequently surrounded by from 3 to 400 Aborigines, we contrived by firm but mild con duct, and by dispensing a few presents of food, clothing, &c., to keep peace. Yes, this we &nbsp; did when there were only six or seven whites in this settlement. The Sydney Blacks often- times when drunk, grossly injured the natives of this district, and this was the only cause of dispute up to the time when the Governor &nbsp; arrived, in September, 1836 ; during the pre ceding year, not one Black or White within the district in which we were located, was, on either side, murdered, or even their lives attempted. Anot...
To Our Agents and Subscribers. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 August 1839
To our Agents and Subscribers. We continue to send a few extra copies to our country friends and agents, that new subscribers may have access to the early numbers; but this we will continue to do only for a very limited time, and we beg that we may be put in possession of complete lists at soon as possible. New subscribers should state whether they wish to have the numbers from the commencement. &nbsp; A Gentleman, whose name by some mistake had got into our list of Subscribers, having intimated that he is no Subscriber, we beg to request any person to whom our paper is sent against his wish, to make known the fact to our Publisher. We are not under any necessity, nor have we any inclination, to force a circu- lation. Our success in that respect is already beyond a doubt. Arrangements are now made for the delivery of this paper in Sydney by half past 8 o' clock. Any infringement of this regulation will be thankfully received at the office, and promptly attended to.

Local Intelligence. FIRST COMMUNION.-On Sunday last, &nbsp; about one hundred children made their first communion in St. Mary's Cathedral. This was one of the most edifying scenes we have ever beheld. The children, most of whom were females, were dressed in white, and arranged around the sanctuary, holding lighted tapers in their hands, and wearing crosses on their breasts. During the cele bration of divine service, they sung several &nbsp; little hymns and canticles, in which they had been instructed by the Rev. Mr. Murphy, whose zeal in preparing them for this great and solemn duty is beyond all praise. Previous to their receiving com- munion, the Bishop addressed them in his usual perspicuous and affecting style. He dwelt chiefly on the blessings about to be conferred upon them by their heavenly Father, in making them the disciples of his beloved Son, and pointed out to them the disposition with which they ought to be pre pared for [celebrating the Pasch with thei...

The Missions of Western Oceanica. From the "Annalfa do la Propagation dela Foi." Extract of a Letter of Bishop Pornpallier, Vicar Apostolic of Western Oceanica, to the Rev. Mr. Colin, Superior of the Society of Mary at Lyons. "Very Reverend Superior,-On the 10th &nbsp; of August we sailed from Valparaiso, and on the 18th of September we anchored in the Gambier Archipelago. So far, as you may perceive, our voyage was both expeditious and pleasant. With the exception of Father Chanel and Brother Joseph, none of us suffered from sea-sickness, and even they felt the inconveni ences of that malady only for the first seven or eight days. The Rev. Mr. Murphy, or, as he is called in religion, Brother Colomban, an Irishman by birth, accompanied us from Val paraiso to Otaheite ; by the help of his instruc tions and of close application, we succeeded, at least partially, in overcoming the difficulties which the study, and particularly the pronun ciation, of the English language present...
