The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 April 1840

Sydney FRIDAY, APR1L 3, 1840. A RUMOUR as: booeen in circulation, for some. days; that despatches have been received by the Governor relative to the late rejected :Ordn?ance Bill, and that it is the intention of his Excelloncy to bring forward a bill,.founded upon the instruc tions contained in those doespatches, to the effect that the. disputed lands shall be given up to the colony, upon the:con dition that the expense of the present and proposed buildings shall be paid by the colonists. Another version of the rumour is, that this arrangement is to. form part of-theSydney' Municipal Bill ;" and those in the opposition speak' ofthi6, giving up of the liads as a bait by. which a little more money is to be obtained fron the public~ and of-the Municipal Bill as;a smooth way of creating new taxes apd additional patronage. And, certainly,:if the government intends to reserve to itself a portion of the unocotpied lands' within the boundary of the town, and, moreover, the nomination of the...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 April 1840

Port Phillip _o_ We have received Port Phillip papers to the 18th ult. The following is the only news they contain:- A branch of the Port Phillip Bank is immediately to be established in Geelong, 'This will tend more to advance the prosperity of the district than any improvement hitherto contemplated in that beautiful locality.--P. P. Gazette.   The dead body of a woman, the wife of a private of the 28th regunont, who had lately arrived with her husband from Sydney, was floating in the Yarra Yarra, on Thursday afternoon, a little below the falls. These parties have been missing since Monday last, and it is but too probable that the husband has shared the same melancholy fate with his unfortunate wife. The causes that have led to this accident seem involved in considerable mystery, and it can only be accounted for by supposing that the unfor- tunate pair had, during the darkness of the night, accidentally fallen into the river, from which they had been unable to extricat...

FOR INTENDING EMIGRANTS.—No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 April 1840

FOR INTENDING EMIGRANTS.-No. 1. Mn. Enrron,-I think that the Government Bounty Regulations,respecting particularly qualified emigrants, tend to cool the ardour of many well educated and respectable.young fellows whomit is our interest to get over here. The following letter is in answer to a young man of the most respectable connections, but whose interest has disappeared with his family property. lie now fills the situation which I myself occupied a slihort time ago; and you can glean the nature of his letter to me, by my answer, if you condes~cebd to read it. I have di vested it of some ds:Bi nces of a private nature, thinking, that if yod'could 'atford it a space ins your paper. it might atahd a'chance of getting snto an English print; and 'should it but influence one respectable person of his stamp to this country, the labour is not lost. It is 'applicable to a very valuable, but very discontented, class in England.--Your most obedient servant, T S. JOHN TOBIAS. From my Bush Hut,...

Mr. EDITOR,- The above is a copy of a notice posted up on the court-house of this place, in the handwriting of the police magistrate, Mr. Cook. I will leave you and the world to guess how we are here situated, under such a bigot; and I ask you, fearlessly, ought the Catholics of this district to put up with this conduct from a man who is getting his living from the community at large? Yesterday   he mentioned to his hearers, in the court-house, that he had not any complaint against the constables who are Catholics until Mr. Mahony came amongst us. Now, if it is a crime in us to listen to the teaching of our pastor and to attend to the duties of our religion, we should be gl...

According to the pro sent state of things their titles appeared to depend solely on thie good-will and pleasure of the govern mert, who would confirm or reject such titles as they thought fit ; and when this was taken into con sideration he could not avoid feeling ratlier amused st the address voted to the Lieut...

James Green, remanded yesterday on a charge of absenting himself from work, and disobedience of   the orders of his master, William Andrews, baker, was found guilty, and sentenced to twenty-one days' imprisonment.               William Thorpe appeared on warrant to answer the charge of asaulting and threatening the life of Thomas Barrett.

A witness in the case — a Mrs. Russell, or, as the prisoner stated her to be, the wife of the " Goose-doctor," swore that Thorpe abused Barrett very much, and chased him with a long pole into his house, an...

miscellanea. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 April 1840

-0 ExrnAonRINAnv SrnaNos.-There are no rivulets, or springs, in the island of Ferro, the west-most of the Canaries, except on a part of the beach, which is nearly inaccessible. To supply the place of a foun tain, however, nature, ever bountiful, has bestowed on this island a species of tree unknown to all other parts of the world. It is of moderate size, and its leaves are straight, long, and evergreen. Around its summit a small cloud perpetually rests, which so drenches the leaves with moisture that they conti. nually distil upon the ground a stream of fine clear water. To these trees, as to perrenial springs, the inhabitants of Ferro resort; and are thus supplied with an abundance of water for themselves and for their cattle.-tWh'ite's Natural History of Selborne, by Browne.

TICKETS-OF-LEAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 April 1840

TICKETS.OF-LEAVE. Mn. EarTron-As you have always shown your self to be a friend of the oppressed, allow me, sir, to call your attention to the culpable neglect on the part of the Government of a circumstance of vital importance to the prison population. I allude to the delay in issuing tickets of leave to such persons as may be entitled to them by the present regula tions. These regulations require a course of good behaviour for a certain period of time, in proportion to the sentence of the individual, and that applica tions shall be made to the bench of magistrates for the above indulgence, by the parties so situated, three months before the expiration of the above period of time, in order that the indulgence may be issued as soon as the time of probation is complete. Now, sir, I would ask, do the applicants receive the indulgence immediately after the expiration of this stated time ? I am sorry to say they do not, but that they are kept waiting, and " hoping against hope," for mon...

Quarter Sessions. FRIDAY, APRIL 3. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 April 1840

-o FRIDAY, APRIL 3. Charles Boyle and William Springer were in dicted for stealing two bags of sugar and a keg of tobacco, the property of 1lr. Samuel Lyons, who stated that he saw the prisoner Springer wheeling the goods in question away on his barrow, and Boyle walking a short distance in front, who ran away the moment he saw Mr. Lyons accost Springer. The prisoner Springer said in his defence that he had been employed by tile purchaser of the tobacco to take it away (which was really tile fact), and had been requested by the prisoner Boyle to remove the sugar, which, as he obtains his livelihood by removing goods on his barrow, he immediately assented to, without doubting that the sugar really was the property of IBoyle. The prisoner 3oyle, when called upon for his defence, stated that he had merely been requested by another person to lift tlhe sugar upon the barrow. The jury, after a short consultation, acquitted Springer, but returned a verdict of guilty against the prisoner Bo...

Original Correspondence       LIBERALITY. MR. EDITOR,-As a pleasing contrast with the conduct exhibited at Dungog by the Buffoon Cook, (or Captain Cook, as he has dubbed himself without commission in army or navy, since his elevation from the spinning jenny at Manchester to the Aus tralian bench,) I beg to inform you that upon the arrival here of the Rev. Mr. Gould, on the 31st Itimo, our Police Magistrate, G. M. C. Bowen, Esq., with a liberal and christian-like feeling, per mitted a vacant room in the court-house to be appropriated for the celebration of divine worship, which took place on the following day, in the pre sence of (considering the shortness of the notice) a numerous and respectable congregation. I may further mention that upwards of £100 have been subscribed by Catholics and Protestants in this dis trict towards the erection of a church, and that there is an extreme anxiety to have a resident pastor amongst us, which we earnestly...
