The Chronicle. FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 April 1840
FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 1840. IN the various articles we have written on the subject of national education, our aim has been to remove as much as pos sible the difficulties that lie in the way of establishing a comprehensive system -difficulties which arise chiefly, if not wholly, from the variety of religious belief that prevails in the colony. The grand objection urged against the Gover nor's plan of last year, by all its opposers, was, that " it required greater conces sions front one party than from another." The plan we have suggested is certainly liable in some measure to the same objec tion; but the additional concessions being all required from that party whlic has never yet opposed education in the colony, we do not see that the others can bring forward any valid objection to it. In our last publication we quoted the evi dence of some of the most enlightened men in Great Britain on the subject; and, inaccordance with their views, we would propose, that a committee should, be appo...
The Chronicle. TUESDAY, APRIL 14, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 April 1840
TUESDAIY APRIL 14, 1840. WE have some doubt if we ought to detain our readers for a moment, by re plying to the last article of our Orange contemporary, on the subject of educa tion. A writer who calls upon Protest ants of every denomination to " unite as one man, to extiirpate every vestige of Popery,' while he in the overy same breath admits that his own readers (doubtless the few hot-heads that arc in the colony) do not "like to be troubled" upon the subject;--such a writer, if, indeed, we admit him to be in possession of reason ing faculties at all, may be safely allowed in the present day to exercise them with but slight opposition. But, although we have the good fortune to live in an age and in a country in which such men as our contemporary, who would " Decide all controversies by Infallible artillery, And prove their doctrines orthodox Bay apostolic blows and knacks" will not be listened to, even by those who have a hankering after the " extirpating" system, it is not less t...
CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 April 1840
CHIN A. The intelligence from China is up to the 20th November. Another action had been fought be tween Ii. Ai. ship Hyacinth and the Chinese war junks, in which the latter were wholly de stroyed. The opium trade had been " forced," large cargoes having been landed, in conse quence of which that poison brought the enor mous price of 900 dollars per chest, to the great de. light of the dealers in general, and the smugglers in particular, although the Hurkaru says it is doubtful whether these immense present profits will not des. troy the claim upon the British Government for compensation for former losses. The tea trade being open to ships of all nations who sign the bond, abjuring introduction of opium, cargoes were conti nually departing for all partsof the world. In conse quence of the temporary check to trade, the maga zines were "glutted," and the p ice unusually low. Of course these colonies will soon be "glutted" accordingly.
Original Correspondence. INTERESTING SCENE AT NORFOLK ISLAND, ON THE DEPARTURE OF MAJOR RYAN FROM THAT SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 April 1840
O® 'gtial ort'8CC0po0b1elltc. -0-a INTERBESTING SCEN AT NORFOLK ISLAND, ON 1lE DEPARTURE OF MAJOIR RYAN PROM THIAT SETTLEMENT. MIR. EDITon-An interesting, though a novel scene for a penal settlement, took place here this evening. Since Major Ryan's arrival to take com mand of this island, he has been indefatigable in as certaining the conduct and character of every prisoner, and for that purpose he himself waded through eight or ten immense sized folios, contain ing the records of every man's offences and punish ments. He took no petty officer's opinion of any man's case. He then marked out the standing, the prospects, and probable period when each prisoner may expect to be recommended for some mitigation of sentence or of punishment, and caused this analysis to be announced in his own presence to every prisoner. Ho did much in every respect to encourage the unfortunate men to a more orderly and submissive line of conduct, and opened a vista of hope to many who were fast sinking int...

A plough, long-cover'd o'er with rust and scurf, Beheld a brother plough quick dashing by, And glittering as it clcav'd the verdant turf, When, touch'd with envy, thus he breath'd his sigh : *' Whence is it, brother, I so foul, so dull, As if in gloomy shade condemn'd to lurk, And thou so b:iglht?"- 'Tis that in sleep you loll Your filthy carcass, and that I love work."

The course is delightful; on the verge ofa beautiful lake, and as level as a bowling green, most romantically situated, and immediately in front of the Five Islands. Throughout the whole of the three days' sport there was an immense concourse assembled, among whom might be observed all the beauty and fashion of the district.

ROAD TO LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 April 1840
ROAD TO LIVERPOOL. tMn. EITron,-Through the medium of your columns I have to request you will insert the fol lowing remarks, in the hope they may attract the attention of the government. Since the formation of the road leading from Sydney to Liverpool there appears to have been little or no attention paid to it, although it is well known to be the greatest thoroughfare to various parts of the country. From the junction of the Parramatta-road on to Liverpool, in wet weather, in many places, it is rendered quite impassable, and even not safe in dry weather, the bridges here ahd there being broken down and washed away. 'here is also another evil existing on that road, which loudly calls for the interference of the legislatnre-that is, theo want of a police station. Scarcely a week passes but divers robberies take place, particularly between the Brighton and Ash field estates, two gentlemen having been robbed in that vicinity on Saturday last. Trusting that these remarks may meet the at...

DUNGOG POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 April 1840
DUNGOG POLITICS. Mr Editor,-I have read your paragraph in last week's paper regarding the conduct of our police magistrate, and I am sure every one here will agree with me in thinking you have conferred a favour on the district by the way in which you have exposed Mr. Cook, which is only what he merits. Although a Protestant, I cannot agree with Mr. Cook in his opinions with regard to Catholics, as I think that every one, whatsoever religion he may be of, has a right do worship God after the dictates of his own heart. A few days ago Cook mentioned that he had no complaint against the constables until the arrival of the Reverend Mr. Mahony. Although differing from that gentleman in religion, from what I have seen of him in his visits here, I think he is one of the last persons to breed dissension among the residents of the district. As regards myself, I have never attended any of Mr. Cook's prayer-meetings, as I am sure no one would, unless those who go from fear of the consequences ...
