Supreme Court. SATURDAY, MARCH 28. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

iuprtteme (Fout~t. -0 SATUnDAY, MARCll 28. CAnTER v. PncanReu,-This action, which occu pied the court the whole of yesterday and to-day, was respecting a quantity of butter which had been purchased by the plaintiff from the defendant. The complainant stated, that the defendant had caused a hole to be bored in each of the barrels and a quan tity of water introduced, intending thereby to add to the weight of the article, and thus defraud the plaintiff of an additional sum of money for such extra weight. The defence was, that the salt and water in question had been introduced, not with the view of adding to its weight, but. only with the intention of preserving the purity of the article. The jury, however, returned a verdict for the plain. tiff; wtth damages, of £136, although the sum ming of the learned Judge was decidedly in favour of the defendant, in consequence of which, we have been informed that Mr. Peckham intends moving the Court on Saturday for a new trial which we have no do...

SPECTRAL ILLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

SPECTRAL ILLUSION. On the 30th of December, about four o'clock in the afternoon, Mrs. A. came down stairs into the drawing-room, which she had quitted only a few minutes boforo, and on entering the room she saw her husband, as she supposed, standing with his back to the fire. As he had gone out to take a walk about half an hour before, she was surprised to son him thorn, and asked him why ho had returned so soon. The figure looked steadfastly at her, with a serious and thoughtful expression of countonance, but did not speak. Suppos ing that his mind was absorbed in thought, she sat down in an arm-chair near the fire, and within two feet at most of the figure, which ihe still saw standing before her. As its eyes, however, still continued to be fixed upon her, she said, after the lapse of a few minutes, " Why don't you speak, -- ?" The figure immediately moved off' towards the window at the farther end of the room, with its eyes still gazing on her, and it passed so very close to her ...

Original Poetry. FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

Ot'igtltal Poctnl. -o FRIENDSHIP. In the skies of the north there's a beautiful light, More fair than the smile of a summer dawn here, That will often times gleam o'er that long wintry night, VWhich sleeps on those oceans so cold and so drear ! There are other fair lights too, like this, that illume Some lew passing moments of life with their ray, But as quickly again disappear in the gloom Which deeper returns as the shorter they stay. They're the quick-fadihg pleasures we sometimes may feel, When the sorrow that darkens our memory departs, And leaves us alone with the hopes which reveal For a moment some far future joy to our hearts. 1lust we then float along upon life's dusky stream, With no beacon to guide us, but sparks that are; W? en they scarce have appeared; is there left us no beam, Which, when they have faded, will still glimmer on ? Oh, yes ! Tho' all other fair lights but illumine Some few passing moments of life with their ray, There's a star that will yet cheer us on ...

Domestic Intelligence. AN INGENIOUS ARGUMENT WELL ANSWERED. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

SWotnectic Itelligette. -o AN INGENIOUS ARGUMENT WELL ANSWERED. When Pontius Pilate, from the judicial bench' appealed to the people, and declared to them, " Ye have brought this man unto me, and behold I have examined him before you, and have found no fault in this man, touching those things whereof ye accuse him," (Luse, xxiii. 14,) the people cried "away with him, crucify him; his blood be upon us, and upon our chidlren."-(MATr., xxvil. 20.) Such was the decision of the rrorr.r..-Gazette. The editor of the Sydneyl Gazette, with a per. versity of intellect which shows the strength of political prejudice, attributes this furious cry to the people of Jerusalem. Can anything be more false? Tleo PEOPLE loved the culprit! they wept at his execution, and beat their breasts. It was the ' Con servatives' of Jerusalem that murdered Jesus the Nazarene. The Judgment-Hall was not filled with the Jewish 'people,' but with the relations, friends, dependants, and banditti of the Jewish Chiefs an...

COLONIAL MAGISTRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

COLONIAL MAGISTRACY. Mr. Editor,-It is with feelings of indignation which I can scarcely suppress that I write to you respecting the conduct of our police magistrate here ; and when I state to you the system pursued by him, I have no doubt you will agree with me that it is high time that he were removed from the office he holds. - Some time ago the Rev. Mr. Mahony, from Maitland, paid us a visit, and, finding that his services would be beneficial, he repeated his visits   every six weeks, remaining three or four days each time, and labouring to recall the people from the path of vice to that of virtue. Having nothing but a hut to meet in for the celebration of Divine worship, we applied to Mr. Cook, the police magistrate,   for the use of either the court-house or the police barracks (which is unoccupied), both of which he flatly refused, although the latter is newly built, and at a cost of £700 to Government; and, not content with this, he has thrown every...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 1840. "They who conceire that our newspapers are no restraint upon bad men, or impediment to the execution of bad measures, know nothing of this country."—JUNIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

Sydney: TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 1840. " They who conceive that our newspapers are no restraint upon bad men, or impediment to the execution of bad measures, know nothing of this country.'"-Junius. THE conductor of a newspaper, how ever conscientious he may be, however desirous to "nothing extenuate, or set down aught in malice," runs a risk of falling occasionally into both extremes, the greater in proportion to the degree of zeal he evinces to check abuses and to promote those measures which he thinks are necessary for the common weal. Such a journalist is more likely to grapple with facts, and to look upon things as they are, than to dazzle his readers with fine theories and speculations, which, for the most part, are without meaning, and only serve to betray either the vanity or venality of the writer. The journalist who acts up to the estimate of' Junius does not profess to write for the instruction of legislators (although these will often find it necessary to have recourse to his c...
