European Intelligence. England. CHANGE of the MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 September 1839
European Intelligence. England. &nbsp; CHANGE of the MINISTRY. (From the Courier.) The Tories have failed in their attempt to form a ministry, and it depends now on the patriotism of the Whigs to rescue the country from the calamity with which it has been for the last four days menaced. The Queen has refused to expel all her fe male friends from the palace at the bidding of the Tories, and at the moment we are writing, Lord Melbourne is closeted with Her Majesty, who has called upon him to preserve her from the degrading bondage which it has been at tempted to impose upon her. His lordship cannot resist the appeal. His Sovereign and his country with one voice, de mand his aid to save them from oppression, and should he shrink from the struggle, he would forfeit that high and honourable name to which all the ingenuity of faction has hitherto &nbsp; failed to affix a stain. The Queen, we are assured, demanded only &nbsp; to be allowed to retain about her the la...

Windsor. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 September 1839
Thursday, the 5th instant, being the day ap pointed for the race between Mr. Baylis's Soldier, and Mr. Brown's Sly Boots-it was well contested on the Australian Race Coursd, Richmond Road, and is supposed to have been one of the best ever run in this Colony, consi dering the unfavourable state of the weather, it having rained in torrents all the previous day; and also, at the very time oi the raining,which no doubt prevented many of the Sydney gen tlemen enjoying the sport. Mr. Brown's Sly Boots, rode by Noble, won the race in a most gallant style. The Soldier was rode by Bad. ins. It is supposed there was not less than two thousand pounds bet on this race, which will sufficiently show the enterprising spirit which is manifested by the gentlemen comprising the sporting community of Australia.
Norfolk Island. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 September 1839
" Norfolk Island. We understand H. M. ship alligator is un der sailing orders to convey two detachments of the military to Norfolk Island immediately, in s:ead of proceeding to Port Essington, which was her original destination. The object ofher mission or thoso warlike preparations is kept a profound secret, even from the officers employed in the expedition; but an outbreak of the con victs or the military stationed there, is supposed to be the cause. We believe the latter. Since writing the above, we are informed that the cause of this secret expedition is, that Cap tain or Major Bunbury, the Military Command and at that station, having ordered the militar) under his command to perform some operations, which they not thinking themselves bound by the articles of war to do, thought proper to dis. obey, and refuse doing further duty. Whether the Commandant has acted judiciously or other wise, we are not prepared to determine. We can only say, that it has been found expedient to remov...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 September 1839
To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. SIR -I am acquainted with a number of the subscribers to your paper, and we frequently converse on the line of conduct pursued by you, as Editor of the "' Australasian Chronicle." I am happy to inform you that it is approved of by all. Your determination not to notice the mis- representations and calumnious abuse daily issued and recorded by a portion of the Sydney papers, does you much credit. They are evidently in- tended to draw you into an useless, unentertain- ing controversy, or to prejudice the Protestant mind against our belief and practice. Our ene- mies have crowned their previous efforts by the publication of a tract from Dens' Theology, which they term a class book at Maynooth ; not- withstanding the undeniable fact, that certain students of that College, now in this Colony, have repeatedly declared that they never even heard of such a book, while resident there. The extracts from Dens' are called ' Catholic Mo- rality,' as if...
Police News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 September 1839
MURDER AND MUTINY.--Colonel Wilson was engaged during the greater part of Tuesday in investigating the circumstances attending the death of a seaman of the Sesostris, who was shot through the head during a struggle with Mr. Trigg, the First Officer, on the night of the 12th of August, when at sea. The evidence of the Captain, Surgeon, and Passengers went to show, that the deceased was excessively violent and mutinous, and had threatened repeatedly to do some serious injury to Mr. Trigg. On the night of the 12th of August, deceased was intoxicated, and behaved in a very outrageous manner ; so much so, that Mr. Trigg was compelled to res- train him by force-a struggle ensued, which terminated so fatally to the deceased. Mr. Trigg was committed, but admitted to bail.
The Maitland Steamer. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 September 1839
The Maitland Steamer. A serious accident. which might have termin- I in a melancholy catastrophe, involving a considerable loss of life and property, happened to the Maitland Steamer on Friday night. On Tuesday morning, the Maitland and the Tamar steamers left Newcastle, the former some hours after the latter, for Sydney. The Tamar pro- ceeded on, discharged, and sailed again for the Hunter on Friday evening. On nearing New- castle, she perceived a signal of distress to sea ward, and making for it, found the Maitland which had been driven out to sea by the violence of the gale, with her rudder unshipped and in a helpless state. What made her situation more desperate was, there being no carpenter on board to repair the damage she had suffered from the violence of the waves; and, had there been, his services would not have been available, there being no tools on board that he could use, except the cook's cleaver. Captain Mulhall of the Tamar, to whom all credit is due for the preserva...

Mechanics' School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 September 1839
Mechanics' School of Arts. Sir. William a'Beckett delivered another Lec ture on Poetry to a crowded audience at the Mechanics' School of Arts on Friday evening. His Excellency the Governor and Lady Gipps were present, and seemed highly delighted at the lecture, and joined heartily in the plaudits of the auditory. The Poets under review were Byron, Moore, Scott, and Coleridge. We be lieve this is the last lecture of the series. Next season Mr. a'Beckett purposes giving a course &nbsp; of lectures on Dramatic Poetry, which, from the fertility of the subject, and the talents of the lecturer promises to be equally interesting as that which he has nearly concluded. &nbsp; &nbsp;

Local Intelligence. CHINA,-The Henry Wellesley has brought the welcome intelligence that the tea trade has been fully re-established. DEATH BY DROWNING.-Another in &nbsp; stance of the lamentable effects of drun kenness occurred on Thursday evening. As Mr. Matthews, overseer to Mr.. Berry, M. C., of the North Shore, in company with James Hickey, a constable residing on the same estate, were returning from Sydney in a dingy, the latter in endeavour-. ing to stand up steadily, lost his balance, being in a state of excessive inebriety, and fell overboard, and was instantly drowned. Information was immediately given to the Conductor of the Water Police at Goat Island, who made diligent search. for the body, but without success. We have to record another melancholy death of the same nature. On Thursday night week, a seaman of the Strathfieldsay, named Philip Jones, in attempting to gain his ship in a boat by himself, while under the influence, of liquor, fell overboard, and was d...
