o SIibc1rtifecra. -o While the success of the CunntNcL-. was uncertain twe made it a principle to adopt none of the usual methods of procuring a circulation, determined as uwe were to let it stand or fall by its own merits. But, now that the voice of the public has raised it to a circulation abore nearly all its contemporaries, we think we owe it to the enterprising gentlemen who have furnished uts with the metals of working out the principles for the develnpement of which this paper was established, and to whom a vast portion of the colonists owe an eternal debt of gratitude-we owe it to them, although profit is stone of their objects, to inform the agricultural and commercial portion of our fellow-citizens that as a medium for giving the greatest publicity to their advertisements the AUSTrnALASIAN CIIRONICLR is second to none, and is vastly superior to most of the journals in this part of" the world.

Miscellanea. A CONTRAST BY LORD LISTOWEL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 April 1840
J?ticdfautca. A CONTRAST BY LORD LISTOWEL. InELAND IN Tony TsMlME.-I call to mind the year 1822, when my house was fortified in an un usual manner, panels of wood being lined with iron to make them slug-proof, and the light of heaven shut out from the principal apartments by perma nent barricades. Then was the time when, as it were to compensate for this darkness by day, we were illuminated by night by the torch of the iucen diary; when every night brought with it a pano ramic view of property in flames-when soldiers were quartered in the houses of the gentry for their pro tection, and when the same gentry took arms and ball-cartridge with them when they retired to rest, as regularly as they took their chamber-lights. InELAND AT PRESENT.-T-he very same localities in which those disastrous events occurred have been remarkable of late years for perfect tranquillity as well as rarity of crime. During this period the doors and windows of our houses might have been at any time left unclo...
Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 April 1840
-o Our Port Phillip papers reach to the 21st ult. The following are extracts : On Sunday morning the first military funeral which Melbourne has witnessed took its way along Queen-street, up the ascent which leads to the ge neral burying ground. It was the corpse of the unfortunate soldier, who with his wife was drowned under some unaccountable circumstances in the stream of the Yarra Yarra. The body of the female was iirst discovered in a manner which led to some whispered suspicions of a foul deed ; the absence of the husband directed all minds to the imagined cul prit; in a few days, however, sorrow usurped the place of anger, for he too was discovered under ap pearances which plainly evinced that he must have shared the same fate with his wife, whether by sui cide, or accident, or otherwise, remains yet a mys tery not unattended with painful reflectson.-Port Phillip Gazette. On Mond..y night the sons of St. Patrick ushered in the dawri of that auspicious day, which centuries have...

Original Poetry. ON THE DEATH OF A SISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 April 1840
-ri(itntl ,OEt -. -o ON TIHE DEATH OF A SISTER. She is gone to dwell in a happier clime, Her bark is at length on a brighter shore, And her soul looks back on the regions of time, But ne'er will return to their darkness more. Shie thinks on her life-those brief young hours That sorrow had dimmed and bittered below And she glances down from her blissful bowers A pitying smile upon earthly woe. She has left the hearts that have loved her here, And shared the few joys of her earthly bloom; She has left those hearts on this comfortless sphere, Still lingering on in a life of gloom. 13ut soon will that life of sadness end, its pleasures and tears together shall cease, And the angel of light from the grave will send Our spirits to her's, in the isles of peace. Farewell, dear angel ! Thy slumbers are light; Thy place of repose is on clouds of bliss, In a land of summer-how glorious and bright Compared to a planet of death like this ! Oh, leave us not here, on these dark, dark plains, Where...

Tie inspector, being already provided with the proposed substantive, without being burdened by the adjective, politely declined her suit, but out of charity furnished her. wath, lodging' for the night. She being well known as " careless," was sentenced to one month in the gaol. Patrick Flannigan was found by Inspector Molloy, late on Saturday night, with his hands in the pockets of a man named Golding, who was lying drunk at the corner of King and Clarence streets.
