BOUNTY IMMIGRANTS. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840
BOUNTY IMMIGRANTS. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-In reading the discussion at present going on respecting the merits of the two systems of Im migration, while I confess I think you too general in your conclusions, I have been much disgusted with the scurrilous personality of some of your opponents. I think it is wrong to argue that, because in some instances there has been much cruelty and immorality in Bounty ships, and be cause there has been much accommodation on board Government ships lately, that therefore the former is irremediable. and the latter perfect. On the other hand, I think you have completely "shewn &nbsp; up" the ignorance of the Council as to matters of fact connected with both systems, and have done much to stimulate public servants to a better dis- charge of their duties, under whatever system Im- migration may be conducted. If such things as you describe can exist under any system, (and such polite phrases as "calumny," " lie," &a...
THE FIRST NIGHT AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840
THIE FIRST NIGHT AT SEA. Serene and sweet the moonlight rose Along the sea so lonely, While yet the blush of day's bright close Died o'er wide waters only. From out their world of mystery The stars were softly stealing; And the young billows playfully O'er Ocean's realms were reeling. And fair and fast, with branching spars, And snowy canvas, sweeping, In queenly grandeur, 'thwart the stars, Our ship her course was keeping. Ah, then the weary thinking heart, With cold prophetic heaving, Began to feel how large a part Of life's sweet things 'twas leaving ! The riches pass'd as valueless, Where long we idly wander'd, Now shone in their true loveliness, As o'er the past we wander'd. The smiles of welcome on our way, In life's unclouded morning, The tears of parting yesterday, Were silently returning. And memory brought not these alone, We look'd back on a hundred Springs of delight, which were our own, Till by that parting sunder'd ! An as we gaz'd on all which grief Yet strove love's ...
Police Office. Tuesday, March 10. Before Messrs. Windeyer and Sempill. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 March 1840
Police Office. Tuesday, March 10. Before Messrs. Windeyer and Sempill. The Court was taken up above five hours by the the case against Drs. Whittle and Oliver, for par- tially opening the body of Mr. A'Beckett, the coach proprietor, of Pitt-street, who died suddenly, a few days since, which appears to have been done by those gentlemen upon the authority of a memorandum written by the deceased. The case was finally dismissed, in consequence of there being no prose- cuting party recognizable by the Bench. Thursday, 12th. William Douglas, charged with drunkenness and disorderly conduct, and with assaulting a constable while in the execution of his duty, was sentenced to pay a fine of 30s., or be imprisoned for fifteen days in the Sydney Gaol. Jeremiah Crawley, charged with a brutal and un- provoked assault upon a female, was remanded for the evidence of the prosecutrix, who had been so maltreated that she was then unable to make her appearance. Elizabeth Holmes and Sarah Dixon, being p...

Supreme Court. FRIDAY, MARCH 13. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
FnRDAY, IMARncr 13. SIOl..sON v. DovrYL.-This was an action to recover damages for breach of contract, the circum stances of which were as follow. It appeared that the defendant had agreed, in March, 1838, to supply the plaintiff with 200 bushels of wheat, at the rate of 12s. per bushel, to be delivered when sent for by the plaintiff. It so happened, however, that the plaintiff did not send for it until some time after, when the price of wheat was considerably advanced; from which circumstance the defendaot refused to doliver up the wheat in question, unless paid for at the thl? current price, which was of course objected hb. b otlto oiher parly. The plontif?'having clearly proved the contract in question, and that he was not limited to send for the foods in any specified time, the jury returned a verdict in his favour. Damages, £30.

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
rclresiasttral nttrlligencte. _0 IRELAND. On Mlonday last (30th Sept.), the first stone o' the Catholic parochial church of St. Cuthbert. Dunluce, was laid by the Rev. John Green, rector of the union of Colerain and Dunluce. The graceful style-of pointed architecture adopted in the design of the sacred edifice, is admirably suited to the lovely site on which it is to be erected-the steep brow of a basaltic range overlooking the town of Bushmills, from which it is separated by the river Bush, the waters of which sweep along almost under the oval window; and, at a little distance, the promontories of Bengoro and Pleaskin, showing their sturp duous summits on the eastern side of the Giant's Cause. way, add a charm to the hallowed spot, on which is yet standing the little rude chapel, no longer afford. ing security or space for the flock. It is worthy of notice, that since the year 1825 thirty-two Catholic parish churches of ease have been completed in the united diocese of Down and Con...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
Sydney: TUESDAY, MAtCH1 17, 1840. Ova Tory contemporary commences his leading article of yesterday by a " pertinent" anecdote. Passing along street blanh the-other day, he overheard a dispute between a well-dressed person and a.man of humble appearance. He does not positively say that the latter called the former a convict, but it may be inferred from the fact, that the former odlled the latter " a b- y emigrant." " Now," says our worthy contemporary (who, to save appearances, has become his own correspondent), " we put it to the advocates for the eligibility of eman oipist jurors, whether the worthy to whom no have directed attention would be a fit and proper person to sit upon a jury, in a case where an emigrant might be an accused party ?" Ourcontemporary then proceeds with a long string of inter rogations and exclamations upon the purity of the jury-box, and upon " the unprecedented constitution oftbiascolony." Now we are one of those Sw lftdecidedly " advocate the eligibility o...

Twenty patients at three draughts a day-that's as. Five times twenty, a hundred-very good. They'll take them for a week at least; seven times one, seven thirty-five pounds-capital!

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-The government brig Governor Phillip and the Nautilus, with Captain Maconochie and about 200 prisoners from Dublin, reached Norfolk Island after a passage from Sydney of eight days. The island, or group of islands rather, for there are three in number, have a beautiful appearance, and present a lovely and picturesque retreat in the midst of the vast ocean. Alas, that such a terestrial paradise Should be the abode of guilt ! The most luxuriant and refreshing verdure mantles the hills and cliffs ; the blue expanse shows itself in delightful contrast with the dark foliage on each jutting promontory, and through pine trees and firs, which grow to an amazing height and stateliness even where their stems are washed by the rolling tide. Captain Maconochie, Colonel Hulme, Mr. Ormsby, police magistrate, and the other passengers, in several boats, effected a landing at Cascade, which is a name given to a bay three miles to the eastward of the ...
