Tracts for the Times. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839
mvactt forx tF E inttto. (From thle Cork ,.outhern Reporter.) The anonalous use made of Religion to foment discord and keep alive the fearful spirit of intolorance and perse oution, is one of the most prominent evils ariaing.fronmtis, conneotion with the state. lt has'been uo' in all ages and'ill countries. On. aof'the most benignant ordinances of Christianity is, that " we should do unto others as we should wish to be done by"-one of the highest intrinsic indications of the divine. source of Christianity is the command it enjoins, " to loveo our neighbours as ourselves ;"-and yet how little has either of them been attended to in the rancorous contests which polemics have engendered, or in the,grievous persecutions .which they encouraged. This arose not from a desire to draw the opposing party from error, for if that were the case the same benevolent feelings that caused .an anxiety for their eternal happiness would induce a correspond ing desire for the temporal welfare of those to...
Colonial M'Ghee's. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839
Colonial 1MI'Ghee's. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. SIR,-The article taken from the Dublin Review, and published in your paper of the 17th, on the subject of Mr. " Ingenious device." M'Ghee's forgeries, presents an apt illustration of the conduct of certain colonial editors. The Colonist was the first paper to publish the libel on the Rev. JOHN BRADY. The Sydney Gazette wishing to have it believed that its own means of procuring information, were even greater than those of the Colonist, not only adopted the libel of the paper, but it also vouched for its accuracy,- h3Iwits Editor justified the libel on the day of its trial is already known to the publio. Gracious goodness ! how short sighted the supporters of these wretch e&l prints must be not to perceive that the cause which both pretend to sup. port and extend, must be a bad one when it* advocates have, by the show ing of _its 'friends, recourse to the armoury of satan,* for weapons with which to attack Cath...

Death of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 October 1839
Death of the Standard. We regret to announce the demise of this celebrated lusus naturae. He had been a miserable abortion from his birth, and be- ing considered a sort of monster, was, refus- ed baptism by the Bishop of Australia. From that hour, he has led a diseased and lingering life, and for some months has been obliged to appeal to the public for the means of existence, on account of the dearth of the times. The Methodists at one time thought of making him a local preacher, and actual- ly sent him a few bushels of maize ; but he failing to answer their expectations, they withdrew their support; and, after endur ing a painful sickness, brought on by star vation, he fell into a state of delirium, and expired yesterday evening, exclaiming, " no peace with Rome, but Orange to the backbone." Reader, pray for his soul. Correspondent.

Wal eDirettcect's a iePttp. We have received Van Diemen's Papers to the 10th ultimo. There had been but slight alteration in the price of colonial produce since the last accounts fromn Hobart Town.
