Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

thiglttal !'OrercspOnberlncI. To the Editor of the Austrulasian Chronicle. Srn-At the discussion which took place in Dub lin, in May, 1838, between thie Rev. Thomas Ma. guire and the Rev. T. D. Gregg, the published and authenticated report of which 1 have seen anti read, the Catholic advocate, after enumerating many of the countries converted from Paganism to Chris. tianity by the missionaries of the Catholic Church, appears to have said, *" And now 1 call upon himl (Mr. Gregg) to name oNE Pagan nation that the Protestant Church of England ever converted." In reply to this, the Protestant disputant stated--' Mr. fMaguire asks, what nation has our Church ever converted from infidelity 1 1 answer the question very easily--There is New Zealand and Australia in general." Now, so far as "'Australia in general" is con cerned, there is not a man, woman, or child through out its vast extent, who does not know that the above assertion of Mr. Gregg is as "general" and brazen a fib as ever cam...

COLONIAL CHURCHES. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

COLONIAL CHURCHES. To the Editor ,f the Australasian Chronicle. Sin,-Dr. Lang, in his work on New Zealand, gives it as his opinion, that this colony cannot long bear the growing burden of its ecclesiastical system. Dr. Lang, who makes the complaint, has had a greater hand in creating abuses on this head, thaq any other individual, having already introduced between twenty and thirty Presbyterian ministers, and being engaged, according to the Herald, in bringing out forty more. And Presbyterians them selves will admit that tile number of their clergy is out of all proportion. While the Catholics are as ten to one-they have only twenty clergymen; the Episcopalians have only thirty. Why, in the name of wonder, should the Presbyterians, wlho are only a fifth per cent. of the population, have twenty ministers1 and why should they, notwithstanding, be the first to break silence, and complain ? Still we do not dispute that there is gross extravagance; and, as Ilis Excellency stated last ses...

LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

LAUNCESTON. The corn market is in a very undecided state; pur chasers for immediate use buying very sparingly at advanced rates, while the growers keep back from trying to effect large sales, anxiously looking for a rise in price. The rate in Sydney has generally a great influence in regulating this market and all parties interested are daily looking for advices from thence, as to the ascertained result of the harvest there; and there is no probability of any large trans actions taking place in wheat here, unless orders to purchase are received from Sydney, or parties are in possession of further information from that quarter. Pork, coffee, cordage, and soap, are scarce and high. Draft porter and ale in good demand; rice plentiful; sugar, in consequence of the high prices at the Mauritius, is looking up tea stationary at £8 'I5s. to £9 per chest. Thereis but a small stock on hand of spirits generally, and brandy has ad. vanced to 10s.; good port and sherry in bottle, scarce and sale...

Van Diemen's Land. Hobart Town, February 21, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

Ilobart Town, February 21, 1840. The recent iinportations have not as yet had any effect upon the market. Tea is on the decline, .and is expected to fall considerably in a short time; at present we may quote £9 as the price. Sugar is also heavy, and the prices are looking down; they stand at 32s. The shopkeepers have risen the retail ,price from 3d. to 3-d. In other respects all com modities bear about the same prices. At the New Market Wharf, the supplies of new wheat have been 'very limited. The farmers seem to be holding back in the expectation of obtaining better prices, which appears rather a questionable result, the present prices having been kept up by the tricks of the corn jobbers, .in the hope of making a good speculation by the tenders. bhese have, however, been most egregiously disappointed, as all the high priced tenders have been very properly rejected. Wheat at present is worth from 12s. to 13s. 6d., but is not brisk at any price; about .9s. and 10s. may be ex pected ...

MEDICINE AND T EIIE MEI.RCHIANT SERV IC E.-No. 2. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sin,-I had seen my friend Captain Cutwater, fishing on shore as he called it, among the Doctors, and having met an old friend of my own, a Surgeon in the Navy, he readily agreed to go in the ship, 'having his table found him. With this good news off I went to Cutwater, and told him 1 had got a Surgeon who had served in the East and W\est Indies-had been at both Poles, and I believed at Crim Tartary too. " Why, as to the Pole," said the Captain, " every collier boy has been there, but where the Cream of Tartar comes from is something new." " You will save," said I, "your fout pounds ten per month ; there is cheap medicine for you." " 1 can have it cheaper," quoth the skipper, " a medi. cal gentlemen offered me thirty pounds, and do the duty; but if your Cream of Tartar friend gives forty, we will close at once." To this I said, " the labourer was always worthy his hire, and in this case he ...

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. (From the English Periodicals.) LONDON. The aspect of Catholic affairs in the metropolis is highly promising, and we ,hope ore long to see the true faith spread ing with equal rapidity there as it has done in the provinces. The isolated state of Society in London, arising from its immense size, and the seclusion of the Catholic clergy from anything approach ing to public lifo, have hitherto operated greatly against the advancement of reli gion; but we trust that the time is not far distant, when by an increase of their numbers and a freer intercourse with Protestants, they will exercise that influ ence in society to which their sacred of fice entitles them. We admire the seclu sion of the ascetic, and love to sec the quiet edifying and unobtrusive deport meat which distinguishes our clergy ; but we live in an age when every encourage ment should be given to the enquirer after truth. nWe have heoard the existing number of Converts in London estimated at 4...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-As there is no other remedy left to me (I despair of making any application to the police magistrate here, after the part he took in my case), I have only to trust to your impartiality in publish ing the following in your valuable and widely circulated journal, as a specimen of the administra tion of justice in this part of the country:- On Wednesday last I was returning home, between seven and eight o'clock at night, in company wltlh my son (17 years of age) from West Maitland, and when near McDonald's Bridge, I met my wife in the custody of constable Hawke who was conducting her to the watch-house on a charge of drunkenness. I interfered and objected to her being taken to the watch-house, as she was perfectly sober, upon which the constable stated that I also was drunk, and threatened to take me to the watch-house also. At this time Mr. Grant, the police magistrate, rode up, and after addressing me and receiving my answers, told th...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

Sydney: FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 1840. THERE is a report current that a Bill is in preparation for next session of the Council, by which our good town of Syd ney is to be endowed with municipal pri vilcges. In other words, it is resolved that the inhabitants shall, in addition to their present taxation, pay also for clear ing, lighting, and watching their streets, and all other items necessary for the peace and prosperity of the citizens. We would strongly caution our fellow townsmen to watch the progress of this Ilill. We are willing to admit that it is high time that we should be allowed to goverin ourselves, both in town and in country. The dark and dirty streets, the drunken constabulary in town, and the broken bridges, mounted bushrangers, and tyrannical magistrates in the coun try, speak sufliciently to the fact that we have no controul in our own affairs, and we, in common with the whole colony, would hail the day in which the British parliament should declare us " of age," by conce...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Stn,-The evil consequences of sly-grog-selling are too evident for any one to attempt its defence; but when the means taken to suppress this practice become oppressive to the peaceable and well.doing portion of the community, it is then time for the guardians of the public weal to speak out: and as you, sir, are the first of our Sydney journalists to stand forth in defence of suffering worth, I beg to inform you of a case tried at the police court here, a few days ago. A man named James Deenlin was fined £30, and the loss of a fine mare and cart, for no other offence than that of giving a glass of grog to a fellow named Pearson, who a hundred times has boasted he would give a thousand oaths for a shil. ling. Pearson is a prisoner of the crown, and is actually living in a state of concubinage with a female prisoner. His victim, Deenlin, isa peaceable, hard-working man, and for a period of twelre years has borne an excellent character in th...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

M1ZSCELLAN.EA. PRAYER AT SBA.-If prayer was not ,instinctive to man, it.is here that it would have been invented; by being left alone with their thoughts and their weaknesses in the presence of the abyss of heaven, in the immensity of which the sight is lost, and of the abyss of the sea, from which they are separated only by a fragile plank-the ocean roaring meanwhile, whistling and howling like the cries of a thousand wild beasts; the blasts of. wind making the cordages yield a harsh sound, and the approach of night increasing every peril and multiplying every terror. But prayer was not invented : it was born with the first sigh, the first joy, the first sorrow, of the human heart; or rather, man was born topray ; to glorify God, or to implore him, was his onl mis sion here below-all tlhese perlish before him or with him, but the cry of glory, of admiration, or of love, which he raises towards the Creator, does not perish on his passing from the earth ;.it re-ascendls, at resounds ...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840

Port Phillip. We have received Port Phillip papers to the end of February. They contain little local news, but the leading articles are written with great spirit. 'Ihe Gazette and Hlerald have each an inte I gent correspondent in Sydney, who furnish them rts?ec tively with a summary of our news. There is a Iard struggle for ascendancy between these two papers; but the great preponderance of advet se men's in the Gazette leaves little doubt as to the result. The Patriot (probably for want of pr'nting materials,) has allowed itself to be distanced in tie field. We snake a few extracts. IlAnAirTs.--Flour has experienced a decline since our last number; it is now £60 per ton for fine, and from £40 .to £45 for seconds. A further fall is expected on Mlonday.-We quoted ale and poster in our last at £7 7s., Since then, the Mary Elsa51 from London, has brought a very large supply, which must materially influence the market. Several casks, however, changed hands yesterday at the above figure....
