Plain Truths; Or, the means by which the people have been deceived. NO. 1. —" History, for the last three cen turies, is little better than a conspiracy against truth." Le Comte de M'aistre.-Du Pape. ILLtusTRA oN I. If we credit Dr. Robertson, -" Instead of aspiring to sanctity and virtue, which along can render men acceptable to this great' author of oider and excellence, the clergy imagined that they satisfied every obligation of duty by a scrupulous observance of religious ceremonies. Religion, according to their conception of it, comprehended nothing else , and the rites, by which they persuaded themselves that they could gain the favour of Heaven. were of such a natlire as might have~been expected from the rude iileas ofi the ages which devised and intro duced them. They were either so unmeaning, as to be aliogetther unworthy of the Being to whose honour they were consecrated; or so absurd, as to be a disgrace to reason and humanity."

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 30 August 1839
Country News, BUNGADORE.—The wheat promises well here notwithstanding there is many heavy frosts every night. This part of the coun- try is quiet and free from bushrangers, ex- cept the robbery done on Mr. Grey, at Queenbeyan. I fear it will not remain &nbsp; long so. Some settlers are giving such low rations, that I fear it will be the cause of many taking to the bush. The roads are in bad condition.—Correspondent.

THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 30 August 1839
THlE iAustralasian' Chronicle. ': , Sydney: F&iIDAY, AUGUST 30, 1839'' Be just and fear not; Let all the cods, thou aim'st at, be thy conmtry's Thy God's and ptuth's " SnAKSt'EAnE. So the farce is once more acted. The Bishop of Australia has disco- vered that "'the Bible alone is NOT the religion of Protestants ;" the members of Council have declared and proved themselves to be totally ignorant of the question of education, and of the state of public feeling with respect to it, and the Governor has been compelled to withdraw his edu cational scheme. So, while other &nbsp; nations are advancing with gigantic strides in the pursuit of knowledge, the people of Australia are to be without the blessings of education, because their legislators are confess edly ignorant of their duties, and be cause the Bishop of Australia has chosen to renounce the first principles of Protestantism. In 1836, when a system of educa tion was proposed, of a most liberal and comprehensive kind...
Supreme Court. Saturday, August 24, 1829. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 30 August 1839
Supreme Court, Saturday, August 24, 1829. The Court was occupied the whole of the day in hearing arguments on a demurrer in the case of Mr. Surgeon Russell, indicted for a misdeme nour, in cutting open and mutilating the head of one James M'lntosh, at Sydney, when and there lying dead, before the Coronor had held his In quest upon the body. Mr. Windeyer, who ap peared for the defence, occupied the Court five hours and forty minutes. He asserted without fear of contradiction, that there was no legally appointed Coronor in New South Wales, inas- much as the laws relating to Coronors, did not extend to this Colony, and Englishmen by birth right inherited all the privileges of the common land to whatever British Possession they emigra ted; and the privilege of electing a Coroner was granted in the Magna Charta. The Attorney general replied in a speech of considerable length and ability, and the Court postponed its judgment till to-morrow.

Local Intelligence A DESPERATE CHARACTER.-Mullins, bushranger and supposed murderer, from Brisbane Water, who was apprehended by Assistant Chief Constable Jones, on Wed- nesday night, in Wallace's lane, and for whom several rewards have been offered, was brought up for examination at the Po- lice Office, on Monday. and remanded.-- After committing a daring robbery at a Mr. Hall's, at Wollongong, he was pursued and captured, and confined in the Lock-up, at Appin.

Loss of the Micmac. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 30 August 1839
Loss of the Micmac, By the Tigress, Captain William, which ar rived from the Whale Fishery on Wednesday last, we regret to learn of the loss of the Micmac, from Sydney. On the 8th July, at half-past 11 in the forenoon, she discovered the wreck of a vessel on the S.E. end of Bond's Reef. Two boats were dispatched to her, with a view to render assistance, should any of the people on board require it. They found her on the smaller reef, having apparently been washed over the larger one, aground, in two feet of water, and ascertained her to be the Mic Mac, from Syd ney. Not a soul was on board, and nothing standing in her but the bowsprit and jib-boom. The decks were cleared of everything, save the fallen masts which lay across them, and the windlass and the cook's coppers; from which circumstance the people of the Nimrod conjec- tured the crew had constructed a raft from the loose spars, oars, and booms, and left the wreck. She did not appear to be bilged, but .the copper sheathing was...
