No Title [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 September 1839

(From the Times.) Public rumour, from twelve to five o'clock yesterday, followed by the evening newspapers, must already have informed the whole metro polis that Sir Robert Peel had met with such an extraordinary and unlooked for obstacle towards the completion of the task which he supposed that Queen Victoria had confided to him, as to feel himself under the necessity of relinquishing the impracticable office. The right hon. baronet having represented to the Queen the expediency, on various public grounds, of removing from the royal presence certain ladies of Whig and Radical connexion, who have for some time occupied the cham bers of the palace, and performed sundry ser vices in the household, received from Her Majesty a prompt and explecit refusal. Sir R. Peel's solicitation to Her Majesty, was in it- self of the most reasonable and respectful kind, absolutely the reverse of that which was scan- dalously imputed to him by the Whig-Radical journals.

State of the Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 September 1839

State of the Markets. Little business was done last week through private hands, but considerable sales by auction were effected ; among the largest of which was the cargo of the Britannia, which fetched good prices. In the Tea trade there appeared a stagnation-buyers being few, and holders timid. Hyson-skin was bought freely at from £9 9s to £10 per chest. In sugar nothing was done, although rum maintained its price. Tobacco was plentiful, but no buyers could be found. On Friday Irish butter took a rise to 1s. 7d. per -lb. Pork fetched £7 per barrel, a large contract being anticipated. There was also a rise in salt; Liverpool was sold at £6 per ton, and backet salt at 10s. 3d. per doz. Flour and wheat remain stationary at our former quotations. Butchers' meat is of rather better quality, and one penny per lb. cheaper. Poultry is still dear and scarce, but no mater- ial alterations have taken place in other colon ial produce since our last.     &nbsp...

Smuggling. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 September 1839

Smuggling. The following notice is exhibited at the Cus   tom -house: *No order for the shipment of bonded goods is to be given, except for ships lying in the Cove, or alongside one of the wharfs on which the ware house is situated, and from which the goods are to be shipped, nor until twenty-four hours notice of such intended shipment shall have been given. (Signed) J. GIBBES, Collector. Custom-house, August 30, 1839. To the Officers in the Long Room, and the Warehouseman. Had the above order been issued long ago smuggling would have received a serious check, and some thousands of pounds would be saved to the Revenue.

Commercial Information. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 September 1839

Commercial Information. The Emma, from Port Phillip, brings ac- counts, that the Jane and Emma may be daily expected from Melbourne. Several vessels, direct from England, with emigrants and mer chandise, were expected to arrive at Melbourne at the period of the Emma's departure; the district of Port Phillip still continues to ad- vance with unexampled rapidity. The Cornwall, which arrived yesterday, from   England, with 337 Government Emigrants, is perhaps one of the largest and finest vessels which has arrived at Port Jackson for some years. She was formerly an East-Indiaman, when she was considered the handsomest ves- sel in that trade. The whole of the passengers have arrived in a healthy state. They consist principally of farming men and labourers. There are some mechanics; the greater part appear to be very respectable. There were 18 deaths (children) and five births. The cleanli- ness of the vessel, the general good conduct of every one on board, shew how efficien...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 September 1839

We make the following extract from' the Southern Australian of the 3lst fo July.. We must admit that in one respect our' neighbours are taking the lead of us, and we trust that their example will not be lost. It is high time that something should be done, both with and for the Aboriginal population of this Colony. "If the Government had the wisdom, and the clamonui of prejudice would allow it to confide the ca:e of the Natives of New Holland to a dozen such'men as those who civilized and sanctified the Natives os Paraguay, another half century would not pass when a noble race of sable Natives would enjoy the blessings of civilization: THE LANGUAGE OF TIlE NsATIvs.-Mr.-Wil liams's Vocabulary of the Language of the Ab origines, which has been announced, is now pub. lished.

Much credit is due to the author for the interest...

THE MARQUIS OF NORMANBY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 September 1839

THE MARQUIS OF NORMANBY. The effect of the whole discussion, in so far   as the Marquis of Normanby's character and conduct were concerned, was to elevate them to even a higher degree of eminence than they had previously attained. The extent to which "all crimes and outrages, tending to render life and property insecure in Ireland," were diminished under his government, and in con sequence of the wisdom, vigour.and impartia-   lity with which justice was administered, was exhibited in a new and striking point of view   by Mr. Pigott : whilst the increase of the value of every kind of property was shown by Lord   Morpeth upon the highest commercial and professional authorities: It even appeared, from the minute and circumstantial statements of the same noble lord, and of Mr. Pigutt, that Lord Normanby had not even committed the amiable offence (which might have been ex pected from the generosity of his nature) of leaning too much to...

Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 September 1839

Ireland   A letter on the state of affairs, previous to the overthrow of the Peel Ministry, was addressed by Mr. O'Connell to the Irish peo- ple, and printed, on his responsibility, in the Morning- Chronicle, for he says " it would be to the last degree imprudent to make the pub- lication in an Irish newspaper, with the judges, sheriffs, and jurors, which will necessarily be inflicted on that country by the renewed Orange regime." The letter is dated 16, Pall Mall, 8th May. He begins by lamenting the grievous calamity which has fallen on his country in the fall of the only English govern ment during 700 years which had exercised its functions with impartiality and justice to the people of Ireland. The Orange faction are again in power, with their bad passions excited by restraint-their leader will be plausible both his nature and situation will prompt him to talk of impartiality, and the people of Eng land love to be deceived. " But his party in Ireland-his Orange confe...

THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, SEPT. 6, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 September 1839

The Australasian Chronicle. FRIDAY, SEPT. 6, 1839.       "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends, then aim,st at, be thy country's Thy God's and truth's" SHAKESPEARE. In the Chronicle of this day we give a continuation of English extracts, relative to the change of Ministry. They furnish all the information that has reached the colony on that subject.     On the 14th of May, Lord Melbourne and Sir Robert Peel, in their respec tive houses of Parliament, gave expla- nations of their proceedings, which add nothing to what we have tran- scribed. The Parliament was adjourned till the 27th May; and the greatest enthusiasm for the Queen, and appro- bation of her firmness, was prevalent throughout the kingdom. The calumnies against our holy religion,   which have lately occupied so much of public attention, have been put forth with a spirit of rancour and hostility so undis- 'guised, and the motives of their propa...
