Foreign Intelligence. SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840
£ffoEvcgtt Intelligence. SPAIN. I have nothing of much importance to acquaint you with at present. The garrisons of Alza, Emetta, and in fact all the forts erected for the protection of the San Sebastian lines, have been dismantled, and the military stores withdrawn to the citadel of San Sebastian. Although the vacillating conduct of the ministry afid the struggles, of parties in Madrid are not very satisfactory to people here, yet there is nothing more serious to be apprehended from the discontent thus created than a little loud talk. In fact, the people are beginning to become, at least in appearance, quite indifferent to the Madrid news, and are only anxious about the proceedings, of Cabrera, and the operations of thoegraud army under Espartero.-Correspondent Morning Chro nicle, November 22. FRANCE. By the usual fiat,'a royal decree, Louis Phillipe has placed £12,000 at the credit of the war minister as secret service money. If circumstances exist which render such a step obligat...
Sydney Price Current. APRIL 23, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840
sgblttep n5tre2 a tnterttt. As'nir 23, 1840. The tea market is very uncertain at present, in consequence of the arrival of so large a quantity lately, and the reports of several cargoes being on their way to Sydney-some sales were made to-day at £8 15s. per chest. Sugar is rather dull, owing to the large quantity on hand; our quotations are merely nominal, but holders will not part with it at less. Spirits are very dull, and rather on the decline, from the large quantity thrown into the market at auction this week. Small sales of rice were effected to-day at 11 per lb., but there is scarcely anything doing in that article at present. Maltliquor remains stationary.

Review. The Sydney Protestant Magazine. No. 1, for April, 1840. 8vo., pp. 32. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840
-o The Sydney Protestant Magazine. No. 1, for April, 1840. 8vo., pp. 32. We have at last been able to give that attention to this periodical which the title seemed to call for at our hands; and, were it not that our readers may expect some account of it from us, we should have contented ourselves with noticing its entombment, some three months hence, in the same brief style as we noticed its birth in our last. In truth, this pub lication is one of those well-meant productions which benevolent men who think they have some little wisdom to spare are apt to send abroad upon an ungrateful world, which not only refuses its applause, but will not even consent to give in return the mer cantile value of a commodity which is, in the opi nion of the author, above all price. The editor sets out by informing us that the design of the work " is to diffuse the knowledge of Protestant truth-of the doctrines of the reforma tion ;" and not only this, but to gain for these doc trines "a complete asce...

-a- tl His Excellenicy has received a despatch from the right honourahle the Secretary of State, acknowledg- a ing the receipt of the petition from the northern pub- it lie meeting on the subject of the proposed disconti n nuance of the assignment of convicts to domestic service. His lordship fully approves of the reply n made by the local government, and says-" You a have very properly pointed out the distinction be. r tween the ends of punishment and those of coloni zation, a distinction which appears not to have been sufficiently kept in view by the remonstrints."

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840
ýScdcliastical Intelligence. IRELAND. 'rhe Right Rev. Dr. Smith, Bishop of Agna and Coadjutor Bishop of Trinidad, has been the bearer of a communication from the Holy See, addressed to the Rev. Dr. O'Hanlon, of Maynooth Col lege, by which that eminent divine is in vested with the title and degree, together with all the rights and privileges of Doc tor in sacred theology. This promotion can enhance but little the high reputation for talent and theological erudition which Dr. O'Hanlon has long enjoyed in his own country h but it stamps with the seal of pontifical authority the character which his learned associates and his nu morons pupils have awarded, and affords then a public and gratifying testimony that the merits so universally acknow. lodged and justly estimated at home, are neither unknown nor unappreciated at the centre of Catholic communion. The Rev. Michael Ryan, lately or dained, left this on Thursday, for Aus tralia, which will be the scene of his future labours.- Tuam He...
Domestic Intelligence. TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840
Mostraetic )Etttlligatre. -o TEM PERANCE SOCIETY. The annual meeting of this society was held on Tuesday evening, in the hall of the Sydney College, and was attended by above eight hundred individuals. The Chair was taken at a little after seven by his Excellency the Governor, who entered the room ac companied by Sir Maurice O'Connell, amidst deaf ening shouts of applause. Has EXCELLENCY (on rising to address the meet ing) said that this was the third time he had had the pleasure of presiding at a general meeting of the society, and it gave him extreme pleasure to see the appearance which the present assembl presented; showing by the number and respectability with which it was attended an indubitable proof thsat the great cause of temperance was progressing with rapid strides. The annual reports of the committee were becoming less and less interesting, inasmuch as the association had now overcome the worst of its diffi culties, and was no longer a handful of well-disposed persons st...

English Extracts. TO THE MEMBERS OF THE TRADES' POLITICAL ASSOCIATION. Darrynane Abbey, 12th Nov., 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840
Ettglto ,0xtract-. t TO THE MEMBERS, OF THE TRADES' POLITICAL ASSOCIATION. Darrynane Abbey, 12th Nov., 1839., FELLOW COUNTRYasEN-As the onsly legal political association existing now in Ireland, I address you. The times are arduous and extraordinary, and require all the attention and all the energy of deter-, mined patriotism. Treason is abroad, and exhibits itself in open vio lence by one set of traitors, and in unmanly and malignant calumny by another set of traitors. It is dillicult to say which is the worse of the two. They have one point of unity arid connexion namely, envenomed hatred to the person and the political virtue of our youthful sovereign. For the first time in the annals of British history has the once-unstained glory of the English military uniform been tarnished and disgraced. British offi cers-oh, scandalous 1-have allowed the ruffian Bradshaw, and the no less miscreant Roby, to tra duce, vilify, and basely, as well as falsely, vituperate, in their presence and h...

TUB DIFIcOULTIEs OF AN EDITOR. An editor'cannot step without treading on some body's toes. If he expresses his opinion fearlessly and frankly, he is arrogant or presumptuous. If he states facts without comment, he dares not avow his sentiments. If he consclentiously refuses to advo cats the claims of' an individual to office, he is accused of individual hostility. A jackanapes who measures off words into verse as a clerk does tape, by the yard, hands him a parcel of stuff that jlnglos like a handful of rusty nails and a gimlet, andif the editor is not fool enough to print the non. sense, " Stop my paper I I won't patronise a man that's no better judge of poetry." One murmurs because his paper Is tooliterary, another that it is not literary enough. One grumbles because the advertisements engross too much room, another com' plains that the paper is ton large; he can't find time to read it all. One wants the type so small that a microscope would be Indispensable in every family ; anoth...
Original Correspondence. "We never hear a person say, 'I war with no man's religious opinions, if he be a good neighbour, and takes up his bills when presented; his mode of faith is a matter between him and his God, with which no one has a right to interfere,' but we set the individual down as one of those who neither troubles God nor himself upon the subject. We consider such an one, in point of fact, as an Atheist in principle, if not in profession."—Vide Sydney Gazette, April 23, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 April 1840

EDITOR -Whatever sort of religion a worth- less rogue may appear or pretend to follow, give me that man's religion who conscientiously acts, with honour and integrity, in accordance with the above undefined creed, so much despised and rejected by the editor of the Sydney Gazette - a creed which in New South Wales is so rarely professed, and so seldom if ever acted upon. In short, it should be inscribed in letters of the purest gold in our churches, chapels, banks, merchants' cou...

o o .~ina . "LIFE HATH ITS CHARMS." &nbsp; " Learn to esteem life as it deserves; then thou art &nbsp; at the pinnacle of wisdom." &nbsp; "Life hath its charms," so all things round us say ; &nbsp; The moon by night, the gorgeous sun by day, ' The hills, the valleys, and, the silvery floods, The rocks precipitous, the leafy woods; &nbsp; All, all attest the great Creator's power, And speak his goodness every changing hour. &nbsp; "Life hath its charms ;" the world is rich and fair, The fields. abundant, full of life and air; Ten thousand flocks the verdant hills adorn, The valleys glow with all-sustaining corn ; All things are ripe with pleasures made for man Great God ! how good, how bountiful thy plan! " Life hath its charms," resounds from brake and dell, Oh I say not " men are devils, earth a hell:" Earth's a vast temple, which securely stands, Built and supported by Jehovah's hands. Men on their brows their Maker's impress bear, C...
