American Missions. (Abridged and translated from Chateaubriand.) [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

American Missions. (Abridged and translatedfront Chateaubriand.) 1usILsT Christianity was shining forth in the midst of the worshippers of Fo-hi, and whilst other missionaries announced it to the Japanese nobles, or carried it to the Court of the Sultans, it was also seen, creeping as it were, in the nests of the forests of Paraguay, taming those Indian nations which were living like birds upon the branches of trees. It is avowedly a strange kind of worship, which unit ing (when it pleases) political to moral strength, produces governmonts as wise as those of Minos and Lycurgus. Europe possessed only barbarous con stitutions formed by time and chance, when the Christian religion caused the wonders of ancient legislation to revive in the new world. The wandering hordes of the sa vages of Paraguay were fixed, and an Evangelical republic arose at the word of God, from the deepest of deserts. And who, again, were the great geni uses who produced these wonders ? Plain Jesuits often thwar...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

Port Phillip We have received Port Phillip papers to the 2nd instant. They are full of disputes as to the important question, whether the Editor of the Gazette or Patriot be the greater gentleman. We regret to say that we are unable to decide. The following are extracts upon subjects more interesting to our readers: - Several gentlemen have come to this flourishing and attractive settlement who only landed at Sydney to com plete their arrangements for hastening onwards to this port. It is said that men of large capital are expected from England by^ every ship that leaves direct for Melbourne.-P. P. Patriot. We are enabled to gratify our readers with correct information as to the expected importation of labouring emigrants. " In consequence of Sir Gipps' representation to the Secretary for the Colonies, Lord Normandy promptly directed that two vessels should be sent with labourers for this Colony, and that too direct. The agent informed his Lordship that one vessel should be despatch...

Tr is eurprising to.witness the igno. rance and inconsistency occasionally displayed by learned and dignified persons in discussing topics with which, from the position they hold, they are presumed to be intimately acquainted. We recollect that Sir James Dowling, in his eagerness to support Bishop Broughton's attempt to-establish in'this country the dark ness of ignorance, upon the 27th of last month, said, among other things, that ".Englishmen, emigrate where they might, carried with them the pri vileges. of the constitution, and the institutions of their native land ;" and the English Church being one of these, he' contended that she was the estab lished Church here as well as in Eng land, and alone entitled to state sup port.

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

Country News. From our correspondents. YAss. -The crops beyond Yass, and for miles along the Murrimbidgee, are looking exceedingly well. The late rains, which were pretty general, have done immense service. There was less rain at Michelago, and that part of the Menaroo, than at any other part of the Colony that I know of. The grass begins to spring-for cattle it is not as yet nourishing, on the con trary, it has a tendancy to purge them: The late seasonable rain has been of the greatest service to sheep.'- I do not hear of any distemper now among the flocks throughout these vast districts. The spring lambing will commence early next month, and, un-   like the last two years, the ewes will have abundance of milk to rear their lambs. Provisions continue scarce and dear,-and more particularly about Limestone and Yass. I have heard   of flour being sold as high as 16d. a lb. near the former place, and of re- spectable persons being obliged to live on animal foo...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-Your farewell to the Editor of the Monitor in the 13th number of the Chronicle, is more than sufficient to satisfy every impar-   tial, unprejudiced person. No conscientious, instructed Catholic could, for on instant, doubt of the tendency and object of our adversaries animadversions on that excellent Manual "'the   Daily Companion ," but your explanation was   due to the right minded sincere dissentient. I have had occasion to know, and have diligently scrutinized the opinions and sentiments of the Editor of the Monitor, and, after due considera- tion, have no hesitation in stating, that I believe him to be a perfectly honest, though mistaken man. Is it not lamentable, that undue im- pressions as to our belief and practice, should   arise in a mind like to his, and be promulgated through the medium of his paper ? It is curious to observe the workings, the o...

Campbell Town Races. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

Campbell Town Races. (From a Correspondent.) These Races came off on the 11th, 12th, and 13th inst, when there was such an assemblage of beauty, fashion, and the sporting world, as has seldom been witnessed in the Colony. The arrangements, on the part of the Stewards, were judicious, and the sports were carried on with great regularity throughout, and must have been highly gratifying to the spirited indivi- duals who got them up, as well as to the visitors. It was proposed, that at the couclu- sion of the next Races, a Race Ball should be given. The following is a list of the prizes ran for, the names of the horses, and the order in which they came in, as nearly as I can remem- ber:— FIRST DAY. Members' Purse of Fifty Pounds. HEATS—1st—2nd. Mr. C. Smith's Bessy Bedlam.. ...... 1 — 1 Mr. J. Roberts's Kelly the Rake...... 2 — 2 Mr. W. Broughton's Medora ......... 3 — 3 This Race was well contested, and won by Bessy Bedlam.

New Publication. Vindication of the PRESBYTERIAN COMMUNITY OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND from the charges of the Church of England. By JAMES THOMSON, Esq., A. M. MACDOUGALL, Hobart Town. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

New Publication Vindication of the PRESBYTERIAN COMMUNITY of VAN DIEMEN'S LAND from the charges of the Church of England. By JAMEs THOMSON, Esq., A. M. MACDOUGALL, Ho   bart Town. "Injury upon injury, and insult super- added to injury!" Deeds of injustice "fol- lowed up by an acrimonious, a slanderous,   and a dishonest attack upon the Presbytery and the Presbyterian community," by the Rev. Archdeacon Hutchins. Such, accord- ing to the writer, are the causes that have impelled him to stand forth in defence of his brethren in faith. It appears from Mr. Thomson's Book (it is an 8vo. of nearly 200 pages), that before the arrival of the Archdeacon in 1837, the Ministers of the two leading Protestant communions in Van Diemen's Land lived   in the utmost peace and harmony, almost to the extent of communicating together; but that on the arrival of that gentleman, and ere he had been a month in the Colony, he commenced with all his might to segregate t...

Miss Fernander Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

Miss Fernandez' Concert.   Truly this is becoming a musical people.   Night after night, we see crowds assembling to enjoy this innocent and enobling amuse- ment, and every Concert surpasses its pre- decessor in presenting before us concatena- tions of all that is beautiful, and elegant, and dignified. This was really a fashiona- ble Concert. The Governor, with his La- dy and Suite, the families of Sir J. Dowling, Sir Maurice O'Connell, the Colonial Secre- tary, the Attorney General, &c., were pre-   sent ; nor could we distinguish the absence   of any whose names could have added to the brilliancy of the scene. His Excellency, whose spirit in patronising the arts is secur- ing him the popularity which real liberality merits, was received with all the honours. Come we then to the performances, and first of all to those of the ' star of the even-   ing.' Miss Fernandez, whom we have no hes-   sitati...

New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 September 1839

Since the Prospectus of the New Zealand Company has been published, speculation is busy upon the success of the undertaking. Colonization has been the rage in England of late years and the proposition of establishing new colonies is met with suspicion and alarm, and makes people reflect upon former failures rather than indulge in anticipations of future success. Much has been said of South Australia, Port Phillip, and other new settlements; but New Zealand opens a field to speculation and enter prise that no other Island in these seas offers for colonization; the climate is congenial, the soil productive, and every advantage that Nature can bestow upon a land favored by Pro vidence has been showered down upon it. The aboriginal inhabitants are a shrewd, intelligent, and clever people, not only capable of instruction, but of teaching their European visitants arts of utility and science in their new community. This country, from the uncertainty of the seasons, can never be an agricult...

School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

On Friday evening, the Rev. Jc Saunders delivered the first of a series of lectures on palceography, or the study of ancient writings. The lec turer commenced by observing, that every age is distinguished by some thing remarkable, and the present by the extraordinary impulse' which has been given to the human mind. This impulse is looked upon by some with fear and contempt, by others with pleasure; but whether the phrase the "niarch of mind" be viewed with aversion or approbation, it refers to a tangible and existing thing,--we must deal with the fact, and guide what we cannot control. Among the results and powerful agency of this impulse are the mechanics' institutions which have sprung up in different parts of the world. Another result.is the study of paloeography, orancient writing, which is a science that has arisen almost entirely within the present century, and it was therefore that in a mecha nics' institute he propounded a science properly belonging to the century. The value...
