,POcttrigt tnteiligtttce. -o I-N D A. (From the Agra Journal.) PnunsEaT PosrIONK oF I?m?A,-Recent accounts from the eastward indicate that a rupture with the Burmese cannot much longer be staved off; that the insolent bearing which has so long characterised the oflicials in that quarter, and which our diplo ýmatists have attempted to explain away, by attri buting it to their ignorance and natural trudenecss, "has only been exhibited in strict accordance with the instructions communicated to 'them by Thara. waddeo and hIis council. In this dilemma we find "ourselves, in spite of repeated and daily warnings; and now that we must set about recovering our po sition in that quarter, we are feeling the emnp tiness and hollowness of all our proceedings in Scinde, Cabul, Rajpootana, 'and the Punjaub. We are on the verge of a crisis-no time can now be lost; and though. the Indian Government have fully vindicated the necessity for operations on the north-west frontier, still they have now to ...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 14 April 1840

'lan Sttentn'0 ELanttr. -o (From Blurray's Review.) THE LASH. -We have received several communications urging us to press upon the notice of Sir John Franklin the wholesale torturings under the sanguinary lash, by Mr. Franks, who holds some superintendence over the unfortunate crown prisoners at Launceston. We have heard of this man, if such an appel lation should be applied to him, examin ing the cleanliness of the miserable men, by poking his stick into their ears ! * * It is remarkablo how readily evil example from the great (or the supposetl so) is followed. " " ' This functionary (Mr. Price, theo nephew of the Governor, having thought proper to revive here the hateful punishment of the sanguinary lash) appears to have considered it proper to revive it at Launceston, and as the Governor was about to visit that town, it is only reasonable to suppose that in fol lowing Mr. Price's examiple, this copyist might have imagined he could not better have recommended himself to his Excel ...

Police Court -o FREE SIDE.-Friday, April 10. Mary Kavanagh was charged with striking Mrs. Thurston with a poker.

The Chronicle. FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 April 1840

FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1840. Ws have been favoured, by an es teemed correspondent at Norfolk Island, with the following exposition, given to the prisoners, by Captain Maconochie, of the manner in which he is to reduce his reformatory system to practice; and we hasten to lay it before our readers, as a document which we are confident will be read with considerable interest, both by those who deride the new system and by those who, with as, believe that it will ultimately succeed : "The superintendent, on taking charge, is desirous of explaining to the community the details of the system of discipline which he as directed to intro duce into the settleme0t, and to which the prisoners landed from the Nautilus are to be immediately subjected. To give fair play to the first trial of this system, these men are also ordered to be kept for a time separate from the old hands: and the superin tendont trusts that no unnecessary difficulty will be experienced in carrying this order, as far as possibl...

NEW ZEALAND BANKING COMPANY. [We insert the following rather severe, but we think merited, castigation, at the request of ~Ir. Thompson.] To the Editor of the Australian. Srn,-I intended addressing you in your paper of this day, but press of business prevented me. In your paper of 'Thursday last, you took the liberty of handling the New Zealand Banking Com panygn a manner highly discreditable to you as a public journalist. Thie article in question abounds with false statements, while the style, which is a secondary consideration, is clumsy no the extreme. But, sir, I cannot look upon this miserable leader as your own offspring ; I cannot believe that the editor of a respectable journal would give to the world such a medley of ignorance, nonsense, and error. I shbuld suppose an' editor would have too much re spect for himself, and know his duty better. Undoubtedly the press has a right to investigate the affairs of all public institutions, whether in pro gress of formation or fully e...
