A Protestant Dr. Dens! [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 September 1839

A Protestant Dr. Dens!   The celebrated Chillingworth being a great favourite with Dr. Broughton (see appendix to his speech on educa tion), it may not be amiss to present our Protestant readers with his opinion on the great question, which seems to be driving the conductors of the Pro- testant press in this Colony out of their senses. We have other Prot testant Doctors in store, whose "theology" will be found equally em- barrassiug to the knight-errants of ultra-Protestantism. "'Can any man be so unreasonable as to imagine that when our Saviour, in so solemn a manner, having first breathed upon his discl- ples, thereby conveying, and insinuating the Holy Ghost into their hearts, renewed unto them or rather confirmed that glorious com- mission, &c. whereby he delegated to them an authority of binding and loosing sins upon earth, &c. Can any one think, I say, so un- worthily of our Saviour, as to esteem these words of his no better than compliments? There...

Local Intelligence     THE RAINS versus THE ROADS.- The rains have entered an action against the roads, and very heavy   damages are likely to be awarded. After several cool meetings between the parties, they proceeded to an open rupture three several times in three se veral places, between Parramatta and Sydney, thereby causing great detenti- on to the would-be travellers. Verily, unless those parties can come to some terms, there will be no " pushing along with four-in-hand," or with any thing else; for the last week the paces of the equestrians have dwindled into the measured steps of flies through glue-pots. We beg to remind our musical   readers, that Miss Fernandez' Con- cert takes place at the Old Court House, on Thursday next.

Bounty Immigrants Of the Lady Raffles. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 September 1839

Bounty Immigrants Of the Lady Raffles   The immigrants by the Lady Raffles, which arrived on Thursday night, are on board along- side Walker's wharf, there beng no provision   for the accommodation of bounty Immigrants at the Government Buildings. They have arrived in good health, and only one death-that of an infant, occurred during the voyage. To clean- liness, and to attention to the habits of the im- migrants on board by the Surgeon Superintend- ent, may be attributed the healthy state in which the bounty immigrants generally arrive; and which has gained for that system the super riority over the Govenment system. Yet, there being no rendezvous or asylum provided for the bounty immigrants, as for the imported by the Government, they must wander about in search of employment without money or friends, in a strange country, often in utter destitution, and hopeless - hopeless, misery, without a   shelter or a home, for months together, cursing ...

A Quack! [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 September 1839

A Quack!   THE Editor of the Colonist, who, it seems, had been originally intended for a son of Esculapius, treats his readers, on Saturday last, to a most terrific account of a dissecting room, and makes us weep with him over the effects produced upon his delicate nerves, by the cutting and slicing he there witnessed. So awful indeed was the impression produced upon our contemporary, that he was induced to abandon a profession which required such an ordeal of preparation, and to take upon himself the more congenial task of curing the diseases of the mind. Even. here his nerves check him in his career. For having gaineod some knowledge of the diseases of the mind from "the library of a * * a or * * *,"t (for he says he is too pure to read Dr. Dens) he confesses that the study of the morbid anatomy of the human soul wrought such evil effects upon his mind, as induced him to give up that study also; and he tells his readers, moreover, that the study of the workings of hum...

Education in Van Diemen's Land.   -Our Correspondent in Hobart Town   writes as follows :--The educational mea- sure is satisfactory to no sect, it is useless to the Roman Catholics in its present state--they will not receive the slightest benefit from it-it is managed by a Board, consisting exclusively of Protestants and Presbyterians ; and though Mr. Driscoll had been offered by the Governor to be nominated to the Board, they knew well from himself before they offered to nomi- nate him, that he would refuse it. Besides it now becomes a deliberate insult to the community, inferring, that there was no other person of sufficient intelligence to whom it could be offered. But more of this Anon.

Character of Lord Liberpool, [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 September 1839

Character of Lord Liverpool. By Lord Brougham. The abilities of Lord Liverpool were far more solid than shining, and men are apt to be jealous, perhaps envious, certainly distrustful, of great and brilliant genius in statesmen. Respectable mediocrity offends nobody. Nay, as the great bulk of mankind feel it to be their own case, they perhaps have some satisfaction in being correctly represented by those who manage their affairs; Add to this, that the subject of these remarks was gifted with extraordinary prudence; displaying from his earliest years a rare discretion in all parts of his conduct. Not only was there nothing of imagination, or extravagance, or any matter above the most ordinary comprehension in whatever bespoke (excepting only his unhappy flight about marching to Paris, and which for many years seemingly sunk him in the public estimation,)-but he spoke so seldom as to show that he never did so unless the necessity of the case required it; while his life was spent in the...
