The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, SEPT. 27, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

Sydney: FRIDAY, 'SEPT. 27, 1539. It "was a constant habit among the preachers and writers of Great Britain, from the time of the Revolution till the present century, to speak of "popery and slavery" as being synoni snous, or, at least, so linked together as to be inseparable. The discussions, previous to the Emancipation Act, have so far enlightened the public, that the opponents of Catholicity have been obliged to throw aside this weapon, and many of them have even gone to the opposite extreme and main tained that the Roman Catholic reli gion has a tendency to republicanism. We observe. that the new tactics have notas et been adopted in this Colony, and that "popery and slavery" are still the weapons. If we wished to convince any lover of truth of the utter absurdity of such a union, we would recommend him to read the History of England from the Conquest till the period when protestanism and despot ism were simultaneously imposed upon the necks of the English people. We would call ...

To Correspondents. We would insert VINDEX'S well merited cas- tigation, severe as it is, but we treat with sove- reign contempt any allusion to Dr. Ullathorne's name, in connexion with a breach of the peace ; and we feel assured that the public will judge rightly of the conduict of a writer, who pub- licly boasts of the natural effects of his wanton provocation upon ignorant men;—who chuckles over the destruction caused by the fire which he enkindled, and stirred, and blowed with all his might. * All communications to be addressed to the Editor, at the Chronicle Office, 67, Pitt-street, Sydney.

IN consequence- of the late strong and J.boisterous weather, it has been found impracticable to run-a Steam Boat to Illa warra, and Broken Bay, wilhl any degree of certainty', soas to make the trade an ac= :orshmodation to the public. The Conmmittee, therefore, deem it most desirable that the William the Fourth should run to thle Hun ter till such timle as the Surf 13oat is com pleted, and the Moorings at Wollnngong 'laid.duwn, so as to render that harbour a place of safety fur the Steamer.

Country News. ARGYLE, MURRAY, ST. VINCENT. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

Country News. From our Correspondents.   ARGYLE, MURRAY, ST. VINCENT. --The rain has totally disappeared during the last five days, and a sharp westerly wind rather cold and high has been blowing. There has not been any frost since the rain ceased, but should the present dry blighting wind continue long, it will be far from serving either the late or early crops, much less the grass. At pre- sent, however, the country is looking well, everything is beautifully green, and the appearance of the country is cheering to the eye. A gentleman connected with the Post-office depart- ment has been making an inspection of the different post-offices through- out these counties and the County King. Carriage from Sydney con- tindes very high.-This is, in a great degree, owing to the scarcity of work- ing bullocks, a great many having died from want of sustenance during the late seasons, and owing likewise to bad roads. The high rate of car- riage is a great drawback both to the wealt...

Plain Truths; OR THE Means by which the People have been deceived. No. III. "Those big romances called Histories of England."—COBBETT. ILLUSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

Plain Truths; OR THE Means by which the People have been deceived. No. III. "Those big romances called Histories of England."—COBBETT. ILLUSTRATION. The false accusations that have been incessantly urged against the Catholic clergy, and the fabricated tales that historians have invented to their pre- judice, have, perhaps, more than any- thing else, tended to excite and keep alive that odium in which the Catholic Church is still held by a portion of the commtunity. The following are one or two instances in which virtue and vice have been made to change places by the veracious historians of the British nation. The reign of the Saxon King Edwy is graced by Home, Goldsmith, et hoc genus omne, with the following tale:—The King, according to these romance-makers, was of the most ami- able figure, and endowed with the most promising virtues. He had fallen in love with a beautiful princess called Elgiva, whom he married, contrary to the advice of the priests and monks, particularly Dunstan...

Conversions to the Catholic Faith. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

Conversions to the Catholic Faith. James Wheble, Esq., of Woodley Lodge, late High Sheriff of Berkshire, in a letter to the editor of the Reading Mercury, reckons the numbers of conversions to the Catholic faith in England, to be about 2,000 annually. Within the last few months, Dr. Walsh, Bishop of the Mid- land District, has confirmed 692 converts in the Eastern counties. Among other converts, Frederick Lucas, Esq., of the Middle Temple, barrister-at-law, has ab- jured the tenets of the Society of Friends, and embraced the Catholic Faith.—Catho- lic Magazine. A wealthy Scotch Baronet and a Mr. Drummond, says a correspondent, have become converts to the Roman Catholic church ; the latter gentleman is said to be in possession of an annual income of £30,000. Their conversion is attributed to the influence of the works of the Oxford Divines, termed Puseyites. The Roman Catholics need not trouble themselves to propagate their principles, as the clergy in all parts of the kingdom are, b...

To the Editor, of the Australasian Chronicle ON TIlE WANDERINGS 01' THE HIUSIAN lIND IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. " Where o'er I roam, whatever climes I see, My heart, with fondness, ever turns to thee." Srn,-Such was the beautiful and poetic. aspiration of Erin's sweet bard, whilst wandering through the various countries of Europe, in search of the useful knowledge of men and manners. Such also is the aspiration of a man when after " being carried about by every wind of doctrine," he at last directs his wandering eye to that "holy city built on the mountain's top"-that. city that throws open its gates to receive the traveller wearied with walking the devious paths of error, and promises to provide him with a secure resting place, in the citadel of christiatz truth, where he shall find mental repose. The surface efsociety may be ruffled for a time, and the waters of bitterness may inundate the land, but the spirit of God will be borne over the troubled elements,. and the voice -of truth ...

Proud England. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

Never had any nation so much to be proud of. She is proud of her own little island, and the more so, because she is so little and yet so mighty. She is proud of her London, her Liverpool, her Manchester, and all her great manufacturing towns and districts, She is proud of her princely merchants of her immense commerce, of her enor mous wealth, and even of her national debt-for what other nation on the globe, she exultingly demands, could pay the interest of such a debt without any perceptible check to her prosperi ty ? She is proud of her navy, her dock-yards, of her arsenals, and of her Greenwich and Chelsea palaces for invalid warriors ; of her hospitals, of her asylums, her alms-houses, which stud her island " like strings of spark ling diamonds." She is proud of her vast foreign possessions and dependen cies, she is proud of her Gibraltar, of her tributary princes and emancipated islands. She is proud of her poets, of her Shakspeare, her Milton, her Pope, Dryden, and hundreds of...
