TAHITI MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 8 June 1844
TAHITI MEETING. ON yesterday a meeting was" held of the friends and supporters of her most Tahi tian Majesty, Queen Pomard, to keep the naughty French out of her dominions. The meeting at the City Theatre was at tended by perhaps about 60 or 70 persons, who passed a. set of resolutions, remarkable only for impertinence and unfounded as sertions, and therefore we shall not fill our columns with them. We cannot think the situation of mun dane things can be so very bad in Sydney, since 70 persons could go to the City Theatre to mingle their Australian tears with those of this afflicted Polynesian Princess, on the loss of her empire, sunk as the star of her flag is, under, the drapeau tricolor, like that of Zenobia under the eagles of Aurelian, with which they have nothing whatever to do. Certain characters in Sydney we ex pected would have attended that meeting,, but really the person. who surprised us most -as a-leade'r therei was'the honorable member for Durham,. We were .not prepare...
THE SYDNEY ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 8 June 1844
THE SYDNEY ABOItIGINES. WE are greatly pleased to perceive by the papers, that the attention of the Australian public is at last being drawn to the lament able situation of these poor, neglected. de serted beings-deserted I no : but injured, overborne, slaughtered beings! and above &nbsp; all others, they are injured, slaughtered, by those whose condition the pious Dr. Lang so pathetically laments, viz., the big squat ters, and their overseers and men, whose diseasings, shootings, and poisonings, are sweeping the unhappy race off the face of the earth in every part of the interior. We have heard too, but cannot believe it, that the boon of a blanket each, to the natives who come about Sydney, usually given in honor of Her Majesty's birth-day, has been omitted this year; if such, how ever, should be the case, we are quite satis fled it is solely through mistake or inad vertence, and that His Excellency will order the blankets to be distributed; particularly as it is now winte...
DISGRACEFUL PROCEEDINGS IN A BURIAL GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
DISGRACL FUL PROCEEDINGS 1N A BIURIAL GROUND. -0 On Tuesday, at three o'clock, the body of Mr. Jacob Burns, aged 74, was carried to Portugal street graveyard for interment. The coffin, instead of being lowered into the grave, according to cus tom, was left at its side during the burial service. As soon as the clergyman retired the gravediggers attempted to force the coffin into a hole (for it could not be called a grave) that was prepared for its reception. They were forcing the coffin into the hole by main force, and by means of heavy logs, when the children and friends of the deceased ex claimed bitterly against their proceedings. The gravediggers continued to drive down the coffin, when the assembled multitude declared they would not allow such an outrage. The eldest .daughter then advanced to the edge of the grave, and with tears in her eyes implored of the gravediggers not to insult the remains of her father, who for 25 years rented a house in the Strand and paid taxes. " Yes,'...

On the fol lowing morning the party, determined not to be done, set out again, and very minutely see?ched another island which they suspected. After an arduous and long search they found the establish ment they were in quest of, consisting of 300 gallons of wort ready for the still, a quantity of casks, some puncheons, and a large sited, together with a worm of a very large description made of copper. It was evidently altogether a first rate concern. The search continued for three days and one night, and those articles which were not taken away were demolished. The revenue would 'in all probab...

CGsENTLSMnN,-I havo always been of opinion that it is tihe duty of every individual in a commru nity, beo his talents ever so humble, to offer boldly whatever suggestions he may deem profitable to the public. I therefore crave tlhe opportunity, and the medium of your excellent little hebdomadal, the MlNaitland Mercury, to retail to the woolgrowers of the colony a hint which I culled the other day from the work of the celebrated traveller and naturalist, ])r. Pallas. It may, and it may not, turn out pro. fitable; it is for them to judge and try, for me to' fulfil a duty. The passage is from tre latin notes of the works of that gentleman, and translated by tire late Dr. Guthrie, of Petersburgh. 4' The inhabitants of the Ukrain and Podolia, as soon as a lamb is dropped, in order to augment its beauty, and make it bring a higher price;,'sew it up in a sort of coarse linen shirt,...

fIlattlanb NcluS, -o [From the Maltland Mercury.] BoruLoG Down ESTAnLIusHMaN.-Mr. King's establishment continues in full work ; during the present week 1000 head of sheep, and from 250 to 260 bullocks have been slaughtered, and a good supply is expected for the ensuing week. Last week the experiment of making gelatine was tried, in the presence of a number of gentlemen, and succeeded admirably; but owing to an accident which hap. ,pened;,.to one of the pans it has not yet been ro peated, .though ?lr.

It is pretty confidently expected that Jorrocks will be up from Sydney .in the course of a few days. The course was never known to be in better condition than at present ; and whether we have rain, or the weather continues fine, it is not likely to be in any worse state than it ...

PORT OF NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 12 June 1844
PORT OF NEWCASTLE. WE are much pleased to find, that New castle, which is the entrep6t of the pro ductions of the great, rich, populous, and important district watered by the, Hunter, Williams, and Paterson Rivers, is likely soon to be rendered independent of Sydney as a shipping port; the very respectably and nu merously signied petition praying for thatboon (or rather measure of justice) having been most kindly and courteously received by His Excellency, who returned an answer altogether favourable to their views. Newcastle, from its situation as the em bouchurc of these fine rivers, whose alluvial banks and sloping uplands are rich, not only in wool, beef, mutton,. and hides, but must soon become so in corn, wine, and we hope, silk and oil-from its coal mines, and the enterprising and enlightened spirit-of its settlers, merchants, and manufacturers, amongst whom (ought we not to say) the" names of the Messrs.' Scott stand con spicuous, niust when its port is opened to direct expo...

Why crawlest thou so painfully along the surface of the earth, which was given as an inheritance to all men without distinction, and which all ought as lords to traverse. Why, in the midst of the productions which it offers thee of itself, and which thy labour multiplies, dost thou so often groan in the anguish of hunger? Why hast thou no shelter against the icy blasts of winter, or against the scorching sun in the season of summer? Why wantest thou garments to cover thy wasted limbs, and a rag to infold ...
