America. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

America. American opinion of interference in Canada. -Whatever may be our sympathies with these unfortunate people, suffering under supposed or real oppression, there can be no doubt as to our obligation or our duty-we have no more right to interfere in the contest, than we have to send an army to assist the malcontents in any of the countries of Europe or Asia, which are groaning under the iron bondage of despotism. This principle our government has distinctly recognized; and individuals who disregard the recognition, place themselves completely be- yond the pale of its protection. The friends of liberty are likely to err, as well as the sup- porters of arbitrary powers-and it would be difficult to find an authority in the law of na- ture or nations, to justify the former more than the latter in entering upon a crusade for the extension of political opinions, or in any way intermeddling with the internal affairs of ano-   ther nation.-New York Review.

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

Country News. From our correspondent. MAITLAND, SEPT. 6.--I am glad to inform you that we have had a visit from our Vicar General, Doctor Ulla- thorne. I was delighted in listening to him, yesterday, giving most beauti- ful instruction to a respectable and numerous congregation. May his visits be many ! Mr. John Bourke, of Harper's Hill, fell from his horse a few days ago, in crossing the Long Bridge at Maitland, and falling with his whole weight upon his forehead, expired on the spot. The weather continues very fine and the crops are looking well. Matthew Chapman, Esq., of Wolla- Robba, has been robbed at his own house, by three armed men in the open day-light; they presented fire arms at him --he told them that he was in their power, and that they might go into the house and take what they pleased, but not molest Mrs. Chapman, for if they did he would resist if he should lose his life--fortunately they did not. The thieves were rather generous, they would not take any- thing that ...

Madras. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

Letters have been received by the Rev. Dr. Moriarty, announcing the safe arrival of Dr. Carew and his companions at Madras on the 24th of January. These reverend missionaries had a pleasant and expeditious passage of three months from England. They had the additional pleasure of converting ten Protes- tants to the Catholic faith during the voyage. The friends of the Right Rev. Dr. O'Connor will be gratified to hear that he is in the en joyment of the most excellent health, and finds his truly apostolic labours daily crowned with increasing success. During the past year three new chapels and schools have been opened in that mission, and since the year 1835 the num ber of children receiving gratuitous education has increased from thirteen to somewhat more than one thousand. Instead of a few idlers being amused with reports full of lies, the good work is making secure and rapid progress in the great vineyard of British India, through the labours of Catholic missionaries, who alone can ...

Prussia. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

Prussia. The note of the Papal Court, in answer to that from Berlin, which was communicated to the Foreign Ambassadors at Rome a short time since, is published by the Augsburg Gazette. The Holy See defines the limits between the spiritual and temporal autho rity existing, that it has not attempted to extend its powers a degree incompatitible with the sovereign rights of the King, but that it is the Prussian government which has arrogated to itself rights in opposition to the immutable institutions of the Church, and even in violation of treaties. The Pope rejects the suspicion that he is inclined to refuse to its fullest extent the principle that obedience and submission are due from subjects to their temporal rulers.

Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

As there are people in this Colony who are not ashamed to avow themselves Orangemen,   we think it right that our Colonial friends should know somewhat of the deeds of that murderous association. We extract the fol lowing from Mr. O'Connell's speech, in the House of Commons, during the late debate on Irish affairs. After replying to the remarks of previous speakers, the Honorable Member pro ceeded - They wanted inquiry, forsooth! Assuredly   they knew what the Orange system was. It was but right to remind them, lest they should for get it, that in the Orange counties there was a word invented which was not known in Eng- land. If a man talked of wrecking houses in England, it would be thought that his honour able friend the member for Birmingham had seen realised his dream of the arrival of the Russians at Gravesend, and of that town being wrecked. (A laugh.) But the phrase was familiar in Ireland. And why ?- Because the act was familiar. (Hear.) - He could ...

Church of England. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

Church of England. It is postively a fact, that the esta blished Church of England has re nounced Protestantism. The Arch bishop of Canterbury has declared, to the utter confusion of all the Bible Societies, that the fundamental dogma of Protestantism, " the Bible alone," is " a perfect mockery." The Pope himself could not go further. We .transcribe with singular satisfaction, His Grace's speech, delivered at the annual meeting of the National Society for the education of the poor in the principles of the Established church, as reported in the Standard of May 2d as follows : " The Airhbishop of Canterbury could scarcely conceive any greater mockery than that where a school pro. fessing to give Instruction, refused to afford to the children such explanations as were necessary, with respect to their proper understanding the information they might read. Was it the more act of reading words which made chil dren understand their real effect and meaning ? Most undoubtedly not. Was it by s...

Wednesday, September 11th. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

Wednesday, September 11th.     Council met pursuant to adjournment-all the Members present. The Governor laid on the table Returns of the cases tried by Military and Civil Juries in the Supreme Court, and Court of Quarter   Sessions, during the year 1838, which had been called for. Mr. Jones presented a Memorial from the   inhabitants of Jerry's Plains and Hunter's River, praying the appointment of a resident Magistracy and Constabulary at Jerry's Plains- the extension of a Court of Requests, and that the muster of ticket-of-leave holders should be held there instead of at Maitland. The Colonial Secretary objected to the memo- rial being presented to the Council; the matter therein contained being only subject to the consideration of the Executive. The Memorial was allowed to lie on the table. After some conversation His Excellency read a letter from the Rev. James Fullerton, accounting for the sum voted for the School at Berrima l...

Crime in England. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

We direct attention to the following expose of the state of crime in England ; it is a theme peculiarly apropos, connected with the case got up against Ireland, by the Tory faction, and re-echoed by their Colonial auxiliaries: - (Abridged from the Morning Chronicle.) We have before us the first report of the commissioners appointed to enquire as to the best means of establishing an efficient constabu   lary force in the counties of England and Wales, and most important information it cer tainly furnishes with respect to a very large proportion of our population-the criminals. It is stated, p.180-   " That there is an average of upwards of 100,000 commitments annually to the gaols, of the able-bodied population of England and Wales for criminal offences; that there are 11,000 to 20,000 persons continually in the criminal gaols, of which a large proportion are persons known as living wholly by depredation; and, from inquiry made in a large number of the indiv...

European Intelligence. England. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

European Intelligence. England. A new Catholic church, dedicated to St. Alban, has been recently commenced at Mac- clefield. The first stone was laid by the Rev. -Dr. Daniel Rock. The following address has been issued by the Venerable the Bishop of the Middle District, to the Catholic inhabitants of Birmingham, rela tive to the erection of the new Catholic church of St. Chad, in that town ;- My dear children in Jesus Christ, it has long been my earnest desire to see in the important town of Birmingham a respectable Catholic church, in which the grand imposing ceremo- nies of our holy religion may be performed with due and edifying solemnity. Various obstacles have hitherto prevented me from accomplishing an object I had so much at heart. Those ob stacles are, in a great measure, removed. Kind friends have generously offered me their chari-   table assistance in the holy work; so that, with firm reliance, my dear children in Jesus Christ, on your cordial, zealous co-oper...

New Publication. An Analysis of Criminal Law, as applicable to Van Diemen's Land. By Charles Rocher.—Elliston, Hobart Town. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 September 1839

New Publication. An Analysis of Criminal Law, as applicable to Van Diemen's Land. By Charles Rocher. Elliston, Hobart Town. The author states. that this work is pub- lished as a guide to the Magistrates of the Colony, in criminal matters coming within their jurisdiction, in the hope of its being serviceable in obviating the difficulty which exists of obtaining works on criminal juris- prudence suitable to the Colony. We are unable to speak as to the manner in which Mr. Rocher has executed his task, in a legal point of view; or how far the contents of the book may be applicable to This Colony; but this much we will say the author has presented us with the clearest and most intelligible Law Book which we have ever seen; and from the clear man ner of its arrangement. we think we could almost form a strong argument for the cor rectness of its information, and the conse quent utility of the book. The man who could give to the Public a manual upon the same plan, applicable to this Colony,...
