Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 March 1840

Vatt tC lnen's I asttb, (From Mnurray's Review, of February 18.) Yesterday, the four unhappy criminals, Riley and Davis, for tilhe murder of ~Mathews, Petit, for the murderof Mr. Paul, and Martin, forwounding the Serjeant of the 51st regiment, underwent the last dreadful penalty of the law. Riley and l1Martin, being Catholics, were attended by a Mlinister of their religion. The Rev. Mr. Bedford, attended Davis and Petit. An immense concourse of people were present at the awful spectacle, it being expected that some declaiation would be publicly made; none such took place; the miserable sufferers were launched into eternity with the least possible delay, after their reaching the fatal scaffold. M at. T. Y. Lowes.-We consider Ihis gentleman entitled to much praise, for the breaking down, na he has done by a general invitation, that miserable system of " class selection," which has prevailed here so long from class to class, beginning from the first, and ending at the last, destroying ...

MISCELLANEA. GLUCK, THE FOUNDER OF THE GREAT SCHOOL OF DRAMATIC MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 March 1840

1VIEZSCELLANEA. GLUCK, THE FOUNDER OF TIIE GREAT SCHOOL OF DRAMATIC MUSIC. Gluck, the greatest dramatic com poser who ever appeared in the French theatre, is now completely forsaken. For who studies Gluck? or who indeed studies any other composer? The men of the present day imagine they have attained the end of their labour when they reach their majority; they quietly seat themselves down, adopting a parti cular style which they preserve to the end of their lives. How remarkable a contrast do they present to Gluck, who at upwards of sixty years of age, still laboured with the ardour of a youthful aspirant; who even then effected an extraordinary revo lution in his art, and who may be said to have changed his style no less than three several times. Weo are so accustomed to a sort of in stinctive composition, having for its only object the expression of the feelings of the moment, that we can scarcely ima gine to ourselves an author devoting long years to study and meditation before e...
