Police Court. FREE SIDE.—FRIDAY, MARCH 27. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 31 March 1840

Police Court. FREE SIDE. - FRIDAY, MARCH 27. John Lynch, one of the overseers of Carters Barracks, was charged with abstracting a one pound note and sixpence from a bag containing £26 13s. with which he had been entrusted to convey to the Bank of Australasia; but as it appeared from the evidence brought forward in the case that the defen dant had frequently before been entrusted with large sums of money, and always executed his trust with the strictest honesty, and that mistakes were fre quently made in the counting out of the money, as also that there was a small hole in the bag at the time the money was said to be stolen, through which it might have slipped, the Bench, thinking that there was not proof to substantiate the charge of robbery, discharged the prisoner. John Fitzgerald was placed at the bar, charged with having deserted from the barque Australasian Packet, but on Captain Macpherson being examined it appeared that the defendant returned to his vessel after the absence o...

Qo @rorreeponbents. IYe would insert the cutting letter of " AK Share. holder," respecting the Sydney College, but for two reasons: first, the subject has been amply discussed in the columns of a contemporary; and, secondly, a " Jew" is every ohit as good a judge of a' qnestion of pounds, shillings, and pence, as a Christian. Apart from the persanalitiei f' "A Shareholder's" letter, ee agree with himn in the importance of providing respectable salaries for the teachers ; and we have more than once borne our testimony to the' abilities displayed by Mr. Cape, as the head-master of the establishment. lYe shall always take an interest in the success of the Syduey College ; but we would rather aid in unitinig the conflicting parties, than in widening the breach between them. ,* All commttnications to.be addressed to the Editor, at the CukonvciL O.fece, Lower.

PUBLIC NUISANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 April 1840

PUBLIC NUISANCES. ' ?a. Ermron-I have perused the leading article in last Friday's Chronicle with great care and atten tion, and cordially agree with the sentiments you have therein expressed respecting the necessity of prompt measures on the part of the Government a. thoritles, to prevent that accumulation of filth which is nearly always the forerunner of disease. And I beg leave to suggest, whether some of the many con stables who are now daily occupied in the prosecu tion and fining of publicans and others might not be employed with more advantage to the public welfare in laying informations against all persons who suffer those masses of filth to ,accumulate in any portion of the premises under their controul, which, as you have justly observed, are frequently to be met with in the numerous little avenues and back premises with which this town so abounds.-I am, sir, your very obedient servant, M. RS. MI'CLAIRTY. 1st April, 1840.

Original Correspondence. LAY-PARSON-MAGISTRATE COOK. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 April 1840

LAY-PARSON-MAGISTRATE COOK. Mr. EDITOR,- I understand that Mr. Cook had a long discourse yesterday, in his conventicle, about the dismissal of the persons of whom I wrote to you last week. He mentioned that they were good and true men until lately; but that they should continue to go to church, under pain of dismissal. There are two other persons to be appointed to-morrow in their stead, as they are determined to follow the religion of their forefathers. I hope and trust you will pay off the tyrant in his own coin, and point out the necessity of his dismissal. I do assure you that the Protestant gentlemen on the river feel the insult that has been cast against the Catholics. Many of them have told me they would scarcely believe any person would have acted so. We are building a Catholic church here. The Protestants have come forward generously and contributed towards its erection: need I say that Cook the bigot would not give one farthing towards it. Do make mention of the above in y...
