Domestic Intelligence. MURDER OF FANNON. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 April 1840

ýoune?ltfc ]ttellignEttt. -o MURDER OF FANNON. As this case has excited great interest in Sydney, and been attended with very strange circumstances, we give the evidence elicited during the course of an examination before the police in relation to the affair. It will be recollected that Fannon, who was a shoemaker in Sydney, had amassed a sum of money, supposed to amount to between two and three hundred pounds, and that he had been keep ing company with a woman named Gorman, with whom it was supposed he was about to leave the colony. On or about the 6th of November, 1834, the body of Fannon was found in a gutter in the Domain, near Woolloomoolloo Bay. An inquest being held on the body, a wound in the throat was discovered, supposed to have been done with a pocket knife, and several of the ribs on the left side of the body were broken. From certain suspicioes circumstances Gorman and several others were ex amined on a charge of having murdered Fannon, but nothing appearing against th...

Original Poetry. THE CONVICT'S GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 April 1840

Original Poetry.   TIIE CONVICT'S GRAVE. In that far clime which England made her prison, Soon as she took it fresh from Nature's hand, Where yet the sun of freedom ne'er hath risen, Nor peace-crowned Knowledge shed her influence bland ; There, 'mid the forests of that prison-land, Beside a gloomy river, is a grave, O'er which shall Grief erect no statue grand, Nor mourner's mantle in the moonlight wave; Yet Australasia's tombs no nobler tenants have. And those brave limbs the felon's fetters wore, Though 'twas a glorious heart which them sus- tain'd, Ev'n by its adverse fate ennobled more   Than if in peace it had unscath'd remain'd; And he, with lofty character unstain'd,   Was banish'd from his home of sweet content Because he loved his country, and had trained   Th' expansive growth of that high sentiment-- To cling round Freedom's feet-immovable, unbent!   The desert's depth received him as the vile; Th' inhuman t...

Four men, named Geary, Palmer, Ingram, and Duffy, wero charged with stealing the clothes of a man named Donovan while in a state of intoxica tion, at Lane Oove.

Foreign Intelligence. CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 21 April 1840

,dJOrctolt 31uttIIIt CetC. CHINA. Through the kindness of Captain Dixon, of the Ellen, we have received a supplement to the Canton Press of January the 11th. There was not much difference in the state of affairs. On the 7th January, Captain Smith of I. M. S. Volage annulled a notice of the intended blockade of Canton, but on the following day, in consequence of a Mr. Gribble having been seized by the Chinese, for what reason we cannot make out, he gave notice of his intention to blockade Canton on January 15th; but, as there is a probability that the Chinese would give up Mr. Gribble before that day arrived, we question if any blockade would be established, as they could not be many weeks after January 15th without hearing of the determination of the British Government not to interfere between the Chinese and the opium smugglers. The determination of the Chinese Government to allow no tea to be shipped on board British ships will cause some inconvenience while it lasts, be cause the...

At the time (three months) when this vessel sailed from Ancona, a vast number of both foreign and British vessels, loaded with wheat and flour, sailed for various ports in Britain, but owing to the contrary winds, few of them have arrived. This is much to be regretted, as the working of the obnoxious Corn Laws will cause this supply of grain to be bonded.
