TO THE EDITOR OF THE "Australasian Chronicle." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
TO TIlE EDITOR OF THE Australasian Chronicle." SIR,-An article in the last Moni tor, from a correspondent, headed, " The Church in Danger," is well worthy of perusal, abounding, as it does, with sound sense and liberal sentiment, such as pervade the argu ments of the advocates of civil and re ligious freedom, and equal rights, to all Her Majesty's subjects in the mother country --and such as charac terised the illustrious national assem bly of Dublin on the sacred question of " Justice to Ireland," with a report of which you favoured your readers in your last number. After the perusal of that report and the avowed senti ments of the liberal and enlightened of every creed, English as well as Irish, who co-operated in the cause of the oppressed, to wrest from the iron gripe of rapacious tyrants their destructive weapons of oppression, and emancipate millions of their brave and devoted countrymen from the degrad ing thraldom which a merciless and implacable faction would perpetuate for...

Lord Lorton; WRECKING OF BALLINAMUCK. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
Lord Lorton 4 WRECKING OF B3ALLINAMUCK. (From the Freeman's Journal.) THE threat of destruction which was de. nounced ugainst the pro-doomed town of Balli namuck has been executed. Ballinamuek, with the exception of six houses, has been levelled with the earth, and its hapless inhabitants thrown houseless wanderers on the world's wide common; The town is reduced to a heap of ruins, and presents a scene at once afllicting and di'gusting. The town, which is the proper ty of Lord Lorton, cmoe under the baRn of his high indignation, and sentence of demolition was recorded agaiust it. The corps of the Boyle wreckers, under the superintendence of a dozen of police, would have securely and efficiently levelled the town, and driven all its inhabitants from its! preclnots ; but such a tame display of - seignoral. power-such common. Isacc means 'of asserting. the 'f rights' of an Irish landlord would be derogatory to the dignity of a baronial Tory lord and, what would be still morc.untoward, ...

The rice by the same ship was disposed of by.private contract at £20 per ton, for the Hobart Town market.

Otaheite. THE QUEEN OF OTAHEITE.-The Moniteur contains two letters from Captain Cecille, of the corvette Hermoine, addtessed to the Minis- ter of Marine, and detailing the remainder of the voyage after quitting Chatham Island, where, as has already been stated she punished the chief of the natives for the massacre of the crew of the Jean Poart Whaler. He touched at Otaheite after the Frigate Venus had been there, and had obtained satisfaction for the treatment given to the French missionaries, and he suc- ceeded in getting certain privileges allowed to the French Consul, such as buying and possess- ing land, &c., which the Queen had recently interdicted.

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
Ero Coi reosponenta. PAx need not fear that we shall be " tempted into a disgusting controversy." We knew'well, that the dishonest scrawlers would not dare to transcribe the textsof Leviticus to which we re ferred, or meet us like honest men upon fair ground. We thrdw down the yaw;t!et. They dared not-pick it up, but to their utter shame and confusion, pnd the triumph of insulted in -nocence and-piety. Feeling the false position they have takwn, they are anxious to shift the ground, and thidow grape shot at us; but we shall stick to the Daily Companion, and hold them to the book of Leviticus till the world see their shameless conduct in its proper light. We thank PAx for his kind opinion ;-the hand is weak, but the cause is good. *.* All communications to be addressed to the Editor, at the .'lsronicle Ofice, 6T, Pitt-street, Sydney.
Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
Concert. !y v" We are none of those who go to Concerts, merely with a view of spend ing an idle hour or banishing ennui; we look upon the cultivation of the. divine art, particularly in this Colony, as a great national affair, and an object worthy of the attention of the legisla ture, and of the publio individually and collectively. The time we trust is not far distant when Australia will occupy a high place among the nations of the earth, and if the fine arts, and more particu larly music, were found to advance the objects of the legislators of an tiquity,.while music was in a rude and infant state, how much more benefi cial must its effects in modern times be, now that it has arrived at a degree of sublimity and perfection which. it requires a constant contact with to believe to be human or possible ? With these thoughts in our mind, we pro ceeded to the Victoria Theatre, on Wednesday evening, which we were pleased to see so neatly fitted up for Mrs. Bushelle's concert. His Excel ...

The Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
The Markets. Sydney, Sept. 12.-Butcher's.meat is about the same, but improving in quality. Poultry still continues dear and very scarce, especially fowls.

Van Diemen's Land. Arrival of Lady Franklin. We hastily announced last week the safe return of Lady Franklin to this country after a long and perilous voyage from Sydney of thirty live days. Welcome as was her presence wher. over it was bestowed during her late tour, nowhere was it so much so as in Van Diemen's Land. That to a powenful mind is added a clearness ofe)udgment and liberality of senti. ment, a variety of circumstances have abund antly proved. We heartily congratulate her ladyship upon her arrival, and we augur from it many most beneficial results.-. Llurray's Rleview.
Episcopalian Manoeubring. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
Episcopalian Manoeuvring The Presbyterians at and in the vicnity of O'Brien's Bridge, had prepared a requisition praying the Government to erect a church, and of course undertaking in the terms of the Act of Council to furnish their portion of the fund, required for such a purpose. Now, will it be believed that one Mr. Swayne-formerly a clerk in the Aichdeanon's office, but recently, ns we. are Informed, ordained for the purpose of suic. ceeding Mr. Ewing (another object of Colonial ordination) as the Minister of St. George's Church at Battery Point-has been industriously active in persuading persons not to sign the requisition, and even, has actually strove to seduce some who had already signed to withdraw their zunmes! Presuming very fairly that Mr. Swayne (we beg his pardon, perhaps we should entitle him tha Reverend Mr. Swayne) was thus acting, if not tinder the im. mediate or direct order of the Venerable the Archdeacon, at least wsth his privity, and also for the purpose of .p...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839
Local Intelligence. &nbsp; STATE OF THE GAOL.-On Friday last, upwards of eighty convicts, from Norfolk Island per Idemnity were received into the gaol, where they still remain awaiting &nbsp; further orders. What would Mr. Justice Willis say if he were to pay the gaol a visit now,when between three and four hundred souls are huddled together there without room to breathe or exercise their limbs ? If His Honor's compassion was excited for their want of accommodation in ordinary times, we fear the shock his nerves would receive on beholding it now, would be attended with serious consequences.
