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

j*iu0(cal, -o PAGANINI.-In a biographical account of Paganini, lately published, the follow ing amusing anecdote is related of him. This great artist was once travelling in Germany; and had just arrived without the gates of Frankfort, where he alighted, and went privately into a retired inn out side the city. After having taken his usual modest repast, absorbed in reverie, hie mounted to the little garret pointed out to him by his host. The night was far advanced and remarkably fine; Pa. ganini placed himself at the window, con teomplating the brilliant heavens through the mist of his own dreamy imaginations. It struck one; and instantly the recolloc tion occurred to his mind of an occur rence of which he had lately boon an ear. witness. He seized his violin, and en deavoured to pourtray sounds that still rang in his ears. The moans and cries of a mother, and her now born infant, were represented to the life by his wonderful and over varying bow. But the host was awakened, and preci...

KEANE'S LECTURES ON IRELAND. o-- The Substance of Three Lectures on the History of Ireland, delivered in London by John Henry Keane, author of "An Address to the Young Men of Ireland," " Lady Alice, aith Legends and Chronicles relating to Ireland," dc. London: T. Jones, Paternoster-row, 1839. No one can now deny that the policy adopted in Ireland for ages, was dictated by the worst of motives, upheld by the worst of means, and followed by the worst of evils; few differ concerning the amount of injustice committed against that country, but many still disagree as to the best means of obtaining a repara tion of its wrongs, and of infusing into it, as it were, a now vitality. The present opposition party-if the publicly ex pressed sentiments of some of its leaders may be taken as the general sentiment sees no hope of governing Ireland well, except by coercion and by a continuance of restrictive measures. The present en lightened administration, on the contrary, seem to be impressed with...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 April 1840

Sydney: TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 1840. So many questions of high importance will necessarily be brought before the Legislative Council during the ensuing session, that we begin to fear the most important of all, namely, that of educa. tion, will 'be overlooked. Tha over wholniing interest attached to the affairs of Now Zealand, to the Ordnance Bill, the Police 1Bill, tboe Sydney Corporation Bill, the Estimates, and all the public questions of the-day, will, we fear, pre vent the Legislative Council from leaving, during this (we trust their last) sitting, a monument of their wisdom to posterity, in providing for the education of the youth of this colony. Yet that is a question which must soon press itself upon the attention of the legislature, if not as a question of phi lanthropy, at least as one of finance; for if it requires £18,000 to provide miserably insufficient schools for Sydney and two or three other towns alone, witl a yearly increase of £1,000 for the schools of the Anglican sec...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 April 1840

Original Jloetvg. -o Wilson the ornithologist, it is said, wished to be buried where the little birds would sing over his grave. Not so the author of the following lines. Cold and lonesome is the sailors' grave, Ilis obsequies, the cries Of the sea-bird as it flies, And his monument, the dark blue wave. Warmly others may be tombed on shore, But far away and deep, Is the pillow of his sleep, And overit the wild waves roar. Once his comrade was the rude sea blast, But soon it turned his foe, Like most that's here below, And death became the friend at last. And whilst sleeping on his ocean bed, What frigid hand shall e'er The rocky pillow tear From under his reposing head? Sleep then, mariner I thy shell-strewed tomb Purer tears shall wet Than maiden ever yet Ilath shed upon her loved one's doom. No foul reptile on thy corse shall feed Ocean's wave alone Shall whiten every bone As it lies upon the dark sea-weed. That o'er me may never fall man's tear, Let me haste away O'er briny waves...

ANECDOTES OF FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 April 1840

ANECDOTES OF FASHION. The origin of many fashions was in the endeavour to conceal some deformity of the inventor; hence the cushions, ruffs, hoops, and other monstrous de vices. If a reigning beauty chanced to have an unequal hip, those who had very handsome hips would load themselves with that false hump which the other was compelled by the unkindness of nature to substitute. Patches were invented in England in the reign of Edward VI. by a foreign lady, who .in this manner ingeniously covered a wen on her neck. When the Spectator wrote, full bottomed wigs were invented by a French barber, one Duviller, whose name they perpetuated, for the purpose of concealing ari elevation in the shoulder of the Dau phin. Charles VII. of France introduced long coats to hide his ill made legs. Shoes with long points, full two feet in length, were invented by Henry Plantagenet Duke of Anjou, to conceal a large excrescence on one of his feet. When Francis I. was obliged to wear his hair short, owing ...

Ladies and gentlemen, merchants and storekeepers, jostling and pushing their way to the steamers-tohe hostler, with his horse, pushing past the ladies with their satin dresses-the young settler of the bush, with his overgrown mustachios (to make him a man, or a mark for a bushlranger) and iis well.stored tra velling bags (which, for want of a regular porter, lhe is compelled to carry himself)-.all striving to see who will be most fortunate in procuring a passage in the already overloaded and crammed steamer.

Original Correspondence. IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 April 1840

RtIgituI l ot'FeVrepottl~~tce. -o- - IMMIGRATION. Ma. EDITon-To the late newspaper discussions on the question of the relative preference between the government and bounty systems of immigration, a great majority among your numerous readers in the district of Illawarra have paid lively attention. Indeed, we all feel, that to our district more perhaps than to any other in tlie colony the question is one of the deepest interest. This is a decidedly agricultural district; labour and industry are its main support. Its prosperity is secured by the introduction of labourers, hale, sober, and industrious; but you must not introduce here immigrants indolent or enfeebled. These might do something in a grazing country; they are a mere nuisance in a land of agriculture. I have had an opportunity of learning the senti ments of many prudent and intelligent persons on this question, since the first appearance of the Im. migration Committee's Iteport; and, while I find some differing with you in t...

MUTUAL ASSURANCE SOCIETY.-A meeting was to have been held yesterday at the Royal Exchange Rooms, for the purpose of forming a Mutual Assurance Association among the owners' of vessels employed in the coasting trade of this colony, but owing to the few persons who attended it was postponed. We apprehend that the chief cause of the non-attendance of theose gentlemen in terested in the formation of an association of this kind was owing to the incorrect hour appointed for the meeting. The afternoon is generally the time when persons engaged in commercial pursuits can be best spared from their business.
