The Confessional.' Translated from the fifth of a series of Essags on confession, by the A bbd Ph. Gerbet, in the " Universild Catholique.',?" Fully to unders'ind the •moral riches'witli which the Christian religion: has* endowed our humanity, it would be woll to consider them, for a moment, with the eyss of some great sage of Pagan antiquity, and to feel something our elves of the admiration he would experience, f, suddenly returning to the world, he saw un folded before him those marvellous creations brought forth by the Eternal Word. W? can at present but consider one single Christian institution--the Confessional. But to render the light under whicli it would appear to us the more sensible, let us suppose Plato and Fenelon conversing together, and the Christian Bishop giving his answers to'the doubts, difi culties, and presentiments which preoccupied the soul of the siubline disciple of Socrates.

THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney FRIDAY, SEPT. 20, 1839. "--------------Be just and fear not; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Let all the ends, thou aim'st at, be thy country's Thy God's and truth's " SHAKESPEARE. IT appears that letters have been received in Sydney by the Hope, from the notorious missionary Prit chard, at Tahiti, which confirm the statement, that his disgraceful conduct in regard to the Catholic Missionaries has brought additional humiliation upon the unfortunate Queen Pomare, who had ruled for a considerable time solely under his guidance and con troul. As attempts are being made to mislead the public upon this affair, we think our readers will not be sorry to be put in possession of a few suppressed facts which have led to this resent ment on the part of the French, and which are calculated to present it in a different light from that in which the propagators of falsehood would exhi bit it.
