To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
To Correspondents. &nbsp; The letter of "ONE OF THE LAITY" was &nbsp; received too late; and Dr Ullathorne's letter &nbsp; sets the matter at rest. We shall be happy, however, to hear again from the same quarter. C. Who is "CATHOLIDUS IPSE?" If our &nbsp; correspondent knows him, we hope he will per- suade him to dip his pen. * * All communications to be addressed to the Editor, at the Chronicle Office, 67, Pitt-street, Sydney. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Local Intelligence. Tenders will be received at the Commis- saiat office until Thursday next, at noon, for bills to be drawn on the Lords of Her Majesty's Treasury, to the extent of thirty thousand pounds. On Tuesday, the 13th instant, the Go- vernment will expose for sale at the Com- missariat stores, at 11 o'lock, 355 bushels of Van Diemen's Land wheat, in lots not ex- ceeding five bushels. This wheat was im- ported by Government for distribution as seed to poor settlers, and is surplus of the quantity required. It appears that Her Majesty has ap- pointed Charles Joseph Latrobe, Esq., superintendent only of Port Phillip, and not Lieutenant-Governor as was formerly stated. This is a new description of ap- pointment, but we apprehend that Mr. Latrobe's duties will be similar to those performed of commandents of out stations- Persons travelling between Campbell town and Illawarra ought to keep a sharp look out as there are some runaways com- mitting robberies on that road. The Campbe...

Loyalty of the Canadian Catholics. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
At one of the levees, held since the breaking out of the disturbances in Canada, loyal and dutiful Addresses from the Catholic bishops and clergy of Upper and Lower Canada trans- mitted were presented to the Queen by their Lordships. Passing over the debateable ques- tion of Canadian Grievances, the following gratifying fact, contained in a letter from the Honourable and Right Rev. Dr. Macdonald, Bishop of Upper Canada, to Sir Charles Gor. don, Secretary the Highland Society of Scot- land, will, we are sure, be received with plea- sure:—"Mr. Menzies will be pleased to learn," &nbsp; says the worthy Prelate, is that of upwards of 250 persons committed , for High Trea- son in Upper Canada, not a single Catholic is amongst them."—Catholic Magazine. &nbsp; ------------------------------ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
Hunter Steam Navigation. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Hunter Steam Navigation. A Meeting was held on Thursday, at the Royal Hotel, for the purpose of forming a Steam Navigation Company. Richard Jones, Esq , M. C., having been called to the chair—stated that the object in meeting was to form a company, to purchase and employ steam vessels in the trade between Sydney and Hunters River. &nbsp; Previous to the proposal of any resolution Mr. Eyde Manning stated, that he should very shortly be prepared to run three steam vessels between Sydney and Hunters River, and that he did not conceive there was any necessity for the formation of a company which would only interfere with private enterprise, without affording any profit to the shareholders, as it was well known that companies could never manage their affairs so economically as private individuals. Mr. Fales, in reply, stated that profit was not the object of the parties proposing to form the company, they were desirous to obtain a certain and speedy conveyance for their pro- duce...
Colonial Distillation. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Colonial Distillation. Our Legislators seem disposed to act, with regard to Distillation, on similar principles to those adopted by our neighbours in Van Die- men's Land. Mr. Robert Cooper and others, &nbsp; no doubt, think it hard that they should be de- prived of the profits of a most lucrative busi- ness; but we think it a much greater hardship &nbsp; for the public to suffer from the effects of spirits, which cannot be so wholesome as those im- ported. The spirits made in the Colony are extensively used with those, imported, because the Colonial spirits are much cheaper and much more easily obtained. It is generally under stood that about one half of the gin and rum, sold by the Publicans, is a mixture of Colonial whiskey. The rectifiers can easily prepare &nbsp; from twenty gallons of Colonial alcohol about 100 gallons of Cordials, and thereby derive an immense profit from their trade, and it is not reasonable to imagine that parties making large sums of...
Popery in Canada. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Popery in Canada. &nbsp; An article under the shove title appeared in one of the Sydney papers of last week. The Editor of that paper has condescended to cor- rect our typography;—we are grateful, and in &nbsp; return beg to point out a few mistakes of a more important character in one of his au- tumns. He asserts on the testimony of a noto- &nbsp; riously infamous woman, named Monk, who has spent a great part of her life in the bro- thels and in the Magdalen Hospital of Mon- treal, that "the Hotel Diels Nunnery" (a &nbsp; community of most pious and charitable ladies in that city) "is a cage for the uncleanest and &nbsp; most degraded creatures perhaps in the world!" And he asserts also, on his own authority, that &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the "Canada Papists have thrown off their &nbsp; allegiance" to their sovereign. The following extracts will set our brother right as to these matters. He promises to "add somethi...
New Maria Monk. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
A New Maria Monk. We copy the following letter from the Monitor. It speaks for itself, and cannot fail to open the eyes of those deluded persons who have, we hope innocently, countenanced this new impostor:— To the Editor of the Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. Sir,—I have been told that Miss Byrne, whose name is attached to a letter which appeared in your paper of Friday last, has been counte- nanced and brought forward by persons who lay claim to be considered respectable. This being the case, and the calumny having a name of some sort undersigned, I shall show her dupes how their innocent credulity has been played upon. If Miss Byrne, or those who hold the pen in her name, tell truth, she must be the most ill- starred woman with whom fate ever chanced to encounter. All the numerous priests who lost their time either in instructing or in confessing her, were by the strongest coincidence, unca- tholic and heretical in their doctrine, simoniacal and schismatical in their pr...
New Roads. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
The inhabitants of the Windsor district will no doubt be happy to learn, that the Governor has given notice of his intention to cause the undermentioned roads to be opened and made:— A parish road from Windsor to Pitt Town. A road from Wilberforce to Windsor Ferry. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A road from Wilberforce to Pitt Town Ferry. A road from Pitt Town Ferry to Churchill's Ferry. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A road from Wilberforce to the district of Kurrajong, and two roads leading from that to Freeman's Reach. Also, a road leading from the Kurrajong to Richmond Ferry. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Public Meeting. In accordance with the notice which ap- peared during the week, a Public Meeting of the Inhabitants of Sydney took place in the Market-house on Thursday last, for the pur pose of adopting the best means for relieving persons at present in distress. The Right Rev. Bishop Broughton, having arrived about 2.o'clock ascended a small plat form which had been erected, and was sup ported by the Colonial Secretary, the Sheriff, Sir John Jamieson, the Rev. W. Cowper, R. Jones, Esq., John Campbell, Esq., Captain Lethbridge, and several Episcopalian Clergy men. The platform was surmounted by a number of the Civil Officers, as well as the leading merchants and tradesmen of Sydney. A very considerable number of persons being assem- bled. Mr. Jones proposed that the Bishop should take the chair,and Sir John Jamison seconded the motion, which was approved of by the meeting. His Lordship having taken the Chair, stated, that he felt highly gratified in finding himself surrounded by pe...
Charity Sermon. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Charity Sermon On Sunday last, the Right Reverend the Catholic Bishop delivered in the Cathedral a most eloquent and impressive Sermon, on the duty of contributing to the relief of the poor, in the present season of scarcity. His Lord ship painted in the deepest colours the crime of those avaricious persons, who have, by their sordid and criminal speculations, deprived the poor of the means of existence. He then drew a frightful picture of the present state of suffering occasioned by the dearth of provi- sions- dwelt in the most feeling manner upon the wretched state of many emigrant families, who, having left their native country in the hope of ameliorating their condition, find their prospects completely blasted, and are desti tute of the means of returning to their native home: and concluded by a most stirring ap peal to the feelings of his audience in behalf of these sufferers. We have seldom heard a more heart-moving discourse, and we are happy to learn that it has been the mea...
The Meeting in the Market Place. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
The Meeting in the Market Place. Without reference to the melancholy cause which called the meeting together, it is with min gled feelings of deep regret and cordial satisfac tion that we reflect on the scene which was ex hibited, on Thursday, in the Market-place, by the assemblage over which the Right Reverend the Bishop of Australia presided. Our satisfac- tion is limited to the contemplation of one object alone, and will be transient; our regret arises from many, from deeper, and from per- manent sources. We rejoice that the appeal to those who were required to assist their desti tute neighbours was liberally responded to, and that much severe and unmerited suffering will be relieved -and with that single consideration our pleasurable reflection on the subject ends. It is an inherent quality of the British cha racter-it is one. of the noblest attributes of man--which leads the subjects of the British government to be so easily beguiled as they are by those who are in authority ov...
European Intelligence. Great Britain. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
European Intelligence. Great Britain &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The English Tory, Journals are filled with invectives against the Ministry, on account of the appointment of Baron Fortescue, as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. The cause of this hos- &nbsp; tility is, it seems, his Lordship's known aver sion to Protestant ascendancy. If this be the crime of the successor of Lord Normanby, &nbsp; may he never repent; but, like him, know the respective value of a faction's hooting, arnd a nation's benedictions. The affairs of Spain are still in the most distracted state. It appears that the Carlist commander Marotto has become a traitor to his master, having not only omitted a favourable opportunity of marching against the Queen's party, but has put to death without trial, the generals Guergue, Carnonai,Sanz, and Garcia, who were desirous of facing the enemy. Don &nbsp; Carlos has issued a proclamation, denouncing Maroto, in which he d...
Commercial Information. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Commercial Information The Westbrook will leave this port for the Mauritius, via Swan River, in the course of a few days. The Pyramus is taking in cargo for Port Philip and Launceston at Campbell's wharf, &nbsp; and having the principal part of her cargo engaged she will meet with quick despatch. The Merope and Mendane, are offered for freight or charter; application to be made to W. Walker & Co. The Lysander from Liverpool and the Asia from London, both with emigrants, had arrived at South Australia when the Exporter left. The Exporter landed 1,00 ponies of the Timor breed at South Australia,for which the super &nbsp; cargo Captain Brend, late of the Marian Wat son, averaged £10 a head. &nbsp; The Mary Hay and the Martha, from this port,had both arrived at Port Phillip. The bodies of the unfortunate Capt. Mitchell, &nbsp; and the apprentice boy were picked up on Thursday, and brought to Sydney for inter- ment. &nbsp; &nbsp; &a...
The Poor Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
The Poor Blacks Extract of a letter dated, Murray dis- trict, July 4th, 1839 -- &nbsp; Your sheep and cattle are doing well. &nbsp; Mr. has a sheep station about thirty miles from hence; about sixty or seventy Murray blacks came there last Friday, forced the two shepherds and watchmen to remain inside their hut, a number of them standing at the door, with spears and tomahawks in their hands, while others of the tribes threw down the hurdles and commenced catching the sheep to see if they were fat, just as a butcher would do in the market. They took away four maiden ewes that night, carrying them off leisurely over their shoulders to the camp. If they destroy a whole flock of Mr. --- 's sheep, he will have himself to thank for it. It is reported here that when one of his shepherds asked the superinten- dent what he would do "if a black jumped over the hurdles to steal sheep ? who replied, "put a ball into him.'' "No;'" says Mr. -.', who was standing near, " don't shoo...
THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 August 1839
Australian Chronicle. &nbsp; Sydney &nbsp; &nbsp; TUESDAY, 'AUGUST 6, 1839 '----Be just and fear not ; &nbsp; &nbsp; Let all the ends, thou aim'st at, be thy country's Thy God's and truth's " SHAKSPEARE. ' I would observe,' says Sir Richard Bourke, that, in a new country, to which persons of all religious persua sions are invited to resort, it will be impossible to establish a dominant and endowed Church without much hos tility, and great improbability of its becoming permanent. The inclination of these Colonists, which keeps pace with the spirit of the age, is decidedly averse to such an institution ; and I fear the interests of religion would be prejudiced by its establishment.* In &nbsp; dealing with this subject, adds Lord Glenelg, in reply,' in a case so new as that of the Australian Colonies, few analogies can be drawn from the insti tutions of the parent state to our assis tance. In those communities formed and rapidly multiplyi...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
South Australia. We copy from the South Australian Register a report of the trial of Mr. G. M. Stephen, who was indicted for willful and corrupt per- In consequence of Mr. Stephen having been acting Governor, and afterwards Colonial Se- cretary of that Province, the case created considerable excitement. Mr. Stephen has publilshed an address to the Colonists of South Australia, wherein he complains of a statement which has been made in one of the South Aus- tralian newspapers. That statement, and,Mr. Stephen's address in reply thereto, both appear of a libellous character, otherwise we should have inserted them. &nbsp;
