Musical. MEMOIR OF NICOLO ZINGARELLI. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
-n MEMOIR OF NICOLO ZINGARELLT. Nicolo Zingarelli, chapel-master of St. Peter's at Rome, was born at Naples in 1792, or, according to Gerber, at Milan, in 1760. Having lost his fa tiler at an early age, he was placed at the Conserva torio of Loretto, to learn the rudiments of composi tion under Feneroli : Cimarosa and Giordanello were here his fellow students. On quitting the Conser vatorio he learned the higher branches of the science from Speraza. One of his earliest works was his ' Montezuma," which was produced at the Naples theatre in 1781, and, though not free from faults, gained the approbation of Haydn. lie then wrote for almost all the theatres in Italy, and after having visited Paris in the year 1789, where he produced his "Antigone," he returned to Italy, being chosen chapel-master to the cathedral of Milan. This si tuation he subsequently relinquished, being elected, on the death of the celebrated Guglielmi, in 1806, to his place in the chapel of the Vatican. From this e...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sin,--The Angel of Death has swept off four victims in on instant during this week. A prisoner, by name Atkinson, formerly clerk to Rev. Mr. Sharpe, and lately a constable at Government House, was drowned while fishing,-some men who saw him sink swam immediately to his relief, but in vain. His remains were found the next day, a mere skeleton -two arms and a leg gone, the bowels and flesh eaten away by sharks. This day, a boat returning from Phillip Island was upset and literally dashed to atoms, by a succession of tremendous rowlers, that came on suddenly and rather unexpected. The Hon. Captain Best, though a good swimmer and not four minutes in the water, was taken out lifeless. Surgeon Ganrie, 80th Regiment, instantly applied every measure to resuscitate animation; but the Captain must have been suffocated by a frock buttoned round his neck, which enveloped his head when upset by an awful wave. There was no water in his chest or lungs. ...

BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
BATHURST. March 11th, 1840.-On the above date, four armed robbers attacked the dwelling-house of Robert Smith, Esq. After ransacking the premises, they forced three of Mr. Smith's servants to convey a considerable quantity of property from the house. Two of the men proceeding through Bathurst with Mr. Platts, to South Australia, have quarrelled, and one of them has put a period to the other's life by stabbing him in the abdomen with a knife. The Police Magistrate proceeded this day to hold an inquest on the body. Pursuant to notice, a meeting of the gentlemen, landholders, &c., was held this day at Connolly's inn, for the purpose of taking into consideration the best means for protecting the township and district of Bathurst from the attacks of armed bushrangers. The meeting is postponed until the return of Major Bowler and the Police Magistrate.
Original Poetry. SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 March 1840
Original Poetry. &nbsp; -o SONG. Oh! sweet to young eyes is the moonlight of summer, While yet they're undimm'd by a sorrowful tear, When love to the bosom is but a new comer, And the world's thousand pathways all flowery appear! And blest is the heart's joyous spring-tide of feel- ing, The light of sweet thoughts then encircling the brain, As at love's holy shrine, in the moonlight, we're kneeling, Illumines so much it ne'er brightens again ! But a cloud, which we mark'd not, obscures the pale moonbeam, While turn we our eyes to the wild roses near; Still bright and unclouded again she will soon beam, And summer's wide landscape as lovely appear ! Not so will the heart, when the darkness of sorrow Hath once o'er it gathered, be light as before; Though the cloud of to-day seems to pass ere to- morrow, 'Tis known,-hath been felt, - is a stranger no more! &nbsp; H. PARKES. Regentville, December, 1839.

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840
$ydney : FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1840. THE experiment about to be tried by Captain Maconochie at Norfolk Island, in the management of conviots, is cer tainly one of magnitude, whatever may be. its results. It is, as be himself expresses it, going' east where we were wont to go west. Whether it may suo ceed or not, its results will be watched with much attention. We think, there fore, we ought to put such of our readers as have not perused the works of Captain Maconochie in possession of the princi ples upon which his system is founded, and the apparatus by which be proposes to bring them into action. We are not one of those who think that transportation has totally failed to answer the ends of,a secondary punishment. We think it impossible to look at the state and formation of this colony, with all its evils, without admitting, and almost admiring, the great result. But we attribute this more to the tendency of human nature to shake off its corruption, and to the influence of religion, th...

THE JACKDAW IN PEACOCK'S FEATHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840
THE JACKDAW IN PEACOCK'S FEATHERS. Mn. Eorrnn,-Had Junius lived to see one of his celebrated and popular opinions o( 1745, per verted, as it has been by some specious correspondent in the Supplement of this day's Herald, to the very. worst of corrupt purposes, equally unjust, illegal, and unchristianlike, he would doubtless have been indignant at the profanation. This emigrant, as he pretends to call himself, may nevertheless be the very scum of the convicts, but in charity we will in. dulge him with all the rights, honors, and distinc tions of an emigrant, " who left his country for his country's good," (vide the famous Barrington's pro logue, before the late governor King, who, mistaking the line for high treason, ordered the theatre to be closed) having thus granted him the privileges of a first-rate emigrant, he surely will not have the pre sumption to alter or interfere with our laws, which during the last eighteen years have been discussed, arranged, amended, and improved by o...
