To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 September 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-You will be gratified to learn that your Chronicle, though yet in its infancy, is much prized by a large portion of the inhabitants of the south ern districts, and is even now reckoned the best Sydney paper :--when cir cumstances admit, it is expected that you will publish as much of the Government Gazette as the settlers require-this will render your paper more valuable to them. Your expo sure, of. the fanatics; turncoats, and hirelings, which are connected with' a large portion of the Sydney press, does equal honor to your head and' heart. The fanatics and' turncoats wish to make it.appear that the Catho- lic religion is not holy. - Blessed for ever bie the name of the founde'r of this religion, who is at once the source of all holiness. He did not leave his spouse without the marks of holiness for she is only ONE, .Hoi.Y, CATHO LIC, AND APOSTOLIC. The bark of Peter has been often exposed to the most violent tempests-attacked by vi...

China. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839

The Opium deliveries had not been completed up to the 21st of-May, but the restrictions to trade had been. de creased, although The 'Canton Free Press of the 14th Miay, says that " the measures of the Yamchae threaten for a time at least to annihilate the trade of Canton altogether," and 'the distress amongst the labouring classes will in consequence be very great. Edicts were being issued day after day from the pompous authorities as, usual,. full of bombast, but 'still seriously' affeoc ting' the commercial interests. The foreign merchanits were at one time ordered to leave Canton, but the order was rescinded, and they were com manded to remain until the delivery of the 20,283 chests should be com pleted. There had been very heavy rains in and about Canton, and although no immediate effect 'was pioduiced in the prices from the stock on hand consequent on superabundant produce of previous years, the rains and the cold weather proceeding them were likely to do much damage to the Sum...

THE RAMADAN IN ALEPPO. Extract from a letter in the selections of the "Letters Edifiantes," translated by the Rev. Mr. Power. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839

THE RAMIADAN IN ALEPPO. Extract from a letter ?is the selections of the "Lettres Edilantes," translated by the Rev. Mr. Power. The custom of the Maronites is that of Catholioit3 ; while Armenians, Greeks and Surians abstain front every species of susten ance till 3 in the afternoon, and even then tile following articles of food--butter, fish, milk, cheese and oil, are carefully excluded from their lenten repasts. The Armenians are more austere; together with refraining from these viands, the Armenians abstain from wine, and never dream of dispensations. Old men of 80 and children of ten fast as rigorously as persons in the prime of life. Matrons enceinte, women giving suck, conceive themselves sub jected to the same discipline, yet you never see an accident follow this austerity. They are persuaded that from this obligation no human casually can possibility exempt them. You will inquire of me now how the Pro testants behave. As in Holland and in Eng land, the Protestants in Asia obs...

Popery in the High Church. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839

ipopst* in thle Sitgs Qgttrtj. (From the Belfast Northern Whig.) It was boasted at one time, by some Irish zealots, in the heat of their pro selytizing labour, that Emancipation would be unnecessary, as, in a few years, all the Catholics would be con verted to Protestantism. People are beginning to think, that a very con trary result is about to take place; and that the Catholic spirit which has commenced burning so brightly in Oxford, among the lights of the Church, will speedily be diffused through the whole mass of the Estab lishment. The pious Mr. Gladstone, the member for Newark, has been touched by the sacred flame; and has sent forth a publication, in which he maintains propositions, which are to the following effect: I. That the Catholic Church, being an insti tution of divine original, is invested with the authority of determining the meaning of Scrip. ture, and that every man is bound to yield un hesitating assent to the exposition of the Church ; some allowance, however, ...

" Old Daniel O' Connell is on hispolitical death bedl" Vide TIMES. ----',C?~sPN?e,--d~~,o,€€ Daniel O'Connell, old and grey, On his political death.bed lay; His cheeks.were sunk, and wan in hue, And his pulse was down to twenty-two ; At the foot of his bed stood Melbourne sighing, In a chair beside him sat Russell crying ; Whilst poor Spring Rice with a phis all gloom, Kept noiselessly creeping about the room, His innocent nose in anguish blowing, As he murmur'd forth, ' O Lord he's.goingl And we shall never more, ready and gay, Sack Treasury blunt on quatter.day I" While thus the mourners looked all aghast, Fearing each hour would be Daniel's last, A posse of Tories came in by.stealth, Just to learn (they said) the state of his health; But when they beheld his pallid face, Each Scamp indulged in a fiend's grimace; Shaw grinned, like some dandy fildle.scraper, While grave Sir Bob cut a frisky caper, And Goulburu shouted; "his day is o'er, F...

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839

Country News. From our Correspondents. YASS, Sept. 24. —As the mail was coming from Goulburn to Yass, two armed bushrangers stopped it and took all the bags, and robbed Mrs.   Williams, of Gundaroo, of about twenty-six pounds worth of property. Our chief constable has started in search of the bags, which we hope he will be successful in finding before the letters are lost. The mail man says, one of the men stood about six feet high, sandy complexion, slightly marked by small pox. The other a stout man. Mrs. Williams could recognise the man again. We have great prospects of good crops up here, in every quarter. In fact, the country looks better than it has for the last two years. BERRIMA.—The quarter sessions,   which have been hitherto held at Campbell-town, are in future to be held at Berrima, where the new gaol is about being erected.

Original Correspondence. One way for an Editor to raise the mind. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839

Original Correspondence. One way for an Editor to raise the Wind. Slander your neighbour, particu- larly a Catholic priest—publish it—it turns out to be a gross libel—an action is brought—heavy damages are ob- tained (so much the better). Appeal to the public in the columns of your paper, something in the way of an advertisement. Say, you are the victim of a base faction—that, you are the champion of Protestantism—bigots take the bait—subscriptions pour in— you mnake good the damage, and pocket a good round sum.—(Probatum est. Ed. Syd. Gaz. .& Colon.) Another way to keep the Press going.   Re-print some old musty work whioh may be in one of the dead languages; it must treat of subjects worded in terms not suited to modern taste, and not necessary for all persons to read, such as we' are told Dens' Theology is, for it must professedly be a religious work. Print it in plain English. Give out that it is a most obscene and filthy book—that only "the saints" can get ...

The Protestant's Daily Companion. "In laqueo isto, quem absconderunt, comprehensus est pes eorum." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839

The Protestant's Daily Companion.   " In laqueo isto, quem absconderunt compre-. heusus est pes eorum." WE are inclined to think, and in some instances we have occasion to know, that's our adversaries give us credit for the candour and moderation with which we have met the little- measured attacks that been made upon us in our infancy. We are now about to show that this moderation is a dif- ferent thing from the "imbecility"   into which it would be construed by those who seem to have no knowledge of any other logic than that of calling names. Most of our readers will re- collect that an extract from a Catholic Prayer-book was given in a late num- ber of the Sydney Monitor, which has filled the columns' of several of the Sydney papers ever since with matter highly offensive to the feelings of Ca- tholics. The publisher of the book was called a " scoundrel;" those who approved of it were declared unfit for society ; the female portion of the Catholic communi...
