MEDICINE AND THE MERCHANT SERVICE.—No. III. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840

MEDICINE AND THE MERCHANT SERVICE.-No. III. Mn. Eorron-From the frank confessionsofmy friend Captain Cutwater, in showing the method of getting up the snuff-box and gold medal system on board ships, I determined to have some further con versation with him about ships generally; so, on my next visit, he informed me that my friend the Naval Surgeon had agreed to go for the forty; and on my making some remarks on the illiberality of the merchants who demanded both money and me dical abilities for a passage home, from men, who were obliged to return to England, which, were this not the case, masters of ships would be under the necessity of bringing with them Surgeons, to whom they must pay wages, and find a table, the whole of the voyage out and home. Capt. C. said, " It was all true, but that such a state of things was to be attributed not so much to skippers as to the owners; for," continued he, " many" I may say mostlof the masters of ships are poor, and kept so by their employers." ...

CHURCH FAVORITISM. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840

CHURCH FAVORITISM. Mn. EDrrou,--I had heard, previous to my departure from home, that all Christian sects were on a perfect equality in New South Wales; but on my arrival here I soon discovered the fallacy of my expectations. 1 he compulsory distinction enforced in the parent country is a monstrous evil, but it is, in many respects, even preferable to the mock liberality of this colony. The former had its origin in the benighted days of the reformation, and is gradually decreasing, while here church favoritism has been gradually increasing its undue influence up to the present time. The former is open and undisguised tn its compulsion, while the latter is insidious in its deceit. The former resembles the highway robber, who by force levies contributions from honest men, for the support of villainy ; the latter is like the swindler, who gathers subscriptions for the public good, and then pays the proceeds to his own party. The Catholics and Dissenters of Great Britian have an excuse ...

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840

trccleiaiticagI Intellgence. -0 (From the European Journals.) ENGLAND. The Catholic Church of Stalybridge, which has been dedicated to St. Peter; was on Wednesday last solemnly consecrated by the Right Rev. Dr. Briggs, Catholic Bishop of the northern district, assisted by about thirty clergymen. This sacred edifice has been, to a considerable degree, raised by the volun tary subscriptions of the poor Catholics of Staly. bridge and the neighbourhood. The foundation stone of this sacred: temple was laid about fourteen months ago, by Thomas Ellison, Esq., of Glossop, since which time the worthy pastor of Dunkinfield has been most indefatigable in his exertions to cause the building to be completed, and the Catholics of Stalybridge can now boast of a. temple second to none in the town or neighbourhood. The edifice is built of stone, in the Gothic style, and cost upwards of 94,000 in its erection. On one side of the church is a house for the officiating priest and his assistants to resid...

Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840

Original 4ott1Pv ponbtelite. Mn. Eron,.-Approving, as Imost cordially do, of your advocacy of that attempted-to-be-trodden down class, the emancipists, I have thought it may not be unacceptable to many of your readers to inform them that, some years back, a tradesman inthe city of London, having a difference with a neighbour, was challenged by the dastard in company with having been transported to one of these colonies, on which he brought an action for defamation. &c., and reco. vered £50 damages, the court holding, that, inas much as he had satisfied the law, he was not to be punished beyond it. Is it less unjust, or rather, is it not more infamous, to injure and calumniate a body of men than an individual, as in the above casel-I am, sir, your obedient servant, JUSTITIA.

MILITARY REGULATIONS. For the consideration of the Right Rev. Dr. PAldding, and of the Commander of the Forces, Sir Maurice O'Connell. Mr. Eurron,-In common with every British soldier, who values the faith of his forefathers, I have had often to regret the almost total want of means or opportunity of teaching the children of Catholic soldiers the religious principles and observ ances of their church.-1 have had to witness what is still more lacerating to Catholic feelings, vis., to be hold repeated efforts made by the serjeant-school masters to compel Catholic soldiers' children to learn the catechism and conform to the liturgy of the Established or Anglican church. On having remon strated with the military schoolmasters on this subject I was told that they were bound to follow the SRoyal regulations," regarding "regimental schools and divine worship." In order to set myself right in this matter, I pro cured and carefully perused a copy of these " regulations," publihshed in 1837, b...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840

LOCAL. SYDNEY MARKET.-We are glad to perceive that, by the new regulations for this market. the north-east building, marked A, will be reserved for the use of settlers who may arrive from the inte rior, and who may be desirous of disposing of their own produce. This re ulatiou cannot fail to be beneficial, both to the inhabitants of Sydney and to the small settlers. As a proof of this, we may mention the following fact. A small settler from the neighbourhood of Wollongong, being desirous of bringing some potatoes and cabbages to the Sydney market, inquired the price of similar articles in the market. 'I he prices stated were, potatoes, 15s. per cwt., cabbages, Is. a head. The settler therefore brought the potatoes and cabbages to market; but, though superior to those charged as above, could only obtain from the stall-keepers 7s. per cwt. for the potatoes, and 4s. a dozen for the cabbages. The settler left Sydney with a determination to bring no more produce to a market where such ad...

MORPETH. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 March 1840

MORPETH. No less than seven sudden deaths have taken place here and at Maitland since the 7th instant, six of which have been caused by drowning. The 'lives and properties of the inhabitants of Morpeth are in continual danger from the outrageous con duct of assigned servants, who are protected in their crimes and insolence by the corruption of the con- stables stationed here.-Correspondent. (The same writer states a case of wilful murder of which he says he was an eye-witness. He does not say that he gave his evidence on the inquest, which he was bound to do, yet he severely blames the jury for returning a verdict of " accidental death." If the jury returned this verdict, having evidence before them of ~ deliberate murder, then the matter ought to be investigated, but if our correspondent kept back his evidence, which he leaves us to imagine, the fault does not lie with the jury, but with himself. We consider he is bound to tender his evidence to the nearest magistrate, and if he re...

THE AFFAIRS OF THE MARQUIS OF HUNTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 March 1840

THE AFFAIRS OF THE MARQUIS OF HUNTLY. A meeting of the creditors of this nobleman was held last Thursday, within the chambers of Mr. D. Lindsay, accountant, Edinburgh, which was nu merously attended by creditors and man datories of creditors in other parts. On the motion, we believe, of one of the functionaries of the Bank of Scotland, which company is a creditor to the extent of £12,000, it was resolved, that a sequestration would be the least expen sive and most expedient mode of realiz ing the funds. A statement of his lord ship's liabilities and assets was at the -same time laid before the meeting, from which it appeared, that the liabilities amounted to £517,600, and the assets.are estimated at £306,000. According to the list, the largest heri table debt is £22;000 to the tirustees for the Catholic clergy, and secured over the Glengarry estate. Among the personal debts, the principal is £35,000.
