Port Philip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
Port Philip. We noticed in our last number the appoint- meut of Mr. Latrobe as Superintendant at Port Philip, and we copy the following from the Port Philip Patriot, which shews that the Mel- bourne folksare gratified that a civilian has been appointed to rule over them. We are happy in being able to assure our readers that Australia Felix is about to rise one step in dignity. A Governor has been appointed by the Secretary for the Colonies; and we are confidently inform- ed by some gentlemen of Melbourne, that Lord Glenelg has really (perhaps unwittingly) con- ferred on this rising Colony the greatest favor in his power to bestow, namely-a Governor- who has travelled much in foreign lands, is a li- terary character, and of mild manners-one that unites " suaviter in modo" to the " For titer in Re;" and, as a climax, is a Civilian. We rejoice to think, that this is the first of the Australian Colonies which has received the rare indulgence of being placed under the rule of a gentleman...

We trust that Mr. Gannon has adopted a neat plan for his buildings, as he is about to erect them in a'neighbourhood where new comers generally have the first glance of Sydney.

THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
THE Australasian Chronicle. Sydney . FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1839. " Be just and fear not Let all the ends,thou aim'st at, be thy country's Thy God's and truth's --" SHAKSPEARE. &nbsp; CERTAIN of our contemporaries &nbsp; have taken it into their heads, that by pouring out upon us all the pretended abominations of Popery, they may succeed in burying us amid the heap, or at least frighten us at the outset from the task we have undertaken. We assure.them that they misappre hend us. They are neither the fabri cations of worthless females,-the forgery of papal bulls and excommuni. cations,-the garbling, falsifying, and mistranslating of Catholic authors, nor the attempt to turn these their own deeds, which are the disgrace of their cause, to the prejudice of ours, that shall deter us from calmly pro ceeding in our career, and fighting our battles in our own way. One of these violent papers has already, we are told, run itself out of breath ; another will, in all probability, b...
Miss Byrue. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
On Sunday last, the Very. Rev. Dr. Ullathorne delivered a lecture in the new Church at Parramatta, in refutation of the infamous charges which have been circu- lated against the Catholic community under the name of this would-be convert. We trust this wretched creature will withdraw &nbsp; notice. She cannot but feel that the par- ties to whom she has lent her name heartily despise her, as a mere tool in their hands that a woman is always the more respected, the more she attends to the duties of private life: and that most Protestants are ready to say amen to the prayer of her country- man, Dean Swift :-"I wish when the Pope &nbsp; weeds his garden, that he would desist from throwing his nettles over our wall." Should Miss Byrne, however, persist in her career, we tell her patrons that we are in possession of the means of crushing HER, if not them ; and both must confess that we are strongly tempted to use these means.-Verb. sap.

SUPREME COURT—Criminal side. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
SUPREME COURT--Criminal side. &nbsp; &nbsp; [The proceedings of this Court on Wednesday, and his Honor's charge to the Grand Jury, we must postpone till our next.] THURSDAY JULY 18, 1839. The Queen at the prosecution of Archibald Macdougall against George Milner Stephen, for wilful and corrupt perjury. This case, which excited considerable inte- rest came on for trial on the above day. The following persons were sworn as petit jury- men :-James Lawrence, William Mineham, John Hunt, Robert Bristow, Kirton Diprase, Thomas Mullard, Thomas Sims, Joshua Fisher, John Bailey, George Debane, James Brown, and William Bradshaw. Mr. Mann, who appeared for the prosecu- tion, in opening the case, said-I appear on the part of the Crown in a prosecution for per- jury, brought by Archibald Macdougall, against George Milner Stephen, Esq. Mr. Mann read the indictment, and proceeded to say-I need scarcely tell you that the crime of perjury is one of a very heavy nature, that faith we p...
Dr. Broughton's Petition. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
Dr. Broughton's Petition THE " hole and corner" petition got up by this ambitious and intriguing prelate has at last seen the light. When we first looked at it, we could not help exclaiming- 'Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementit.''. That the representative of any body of Christians at the present day could indulge in such dreams, we should have believed impossible, did not the experience of every day convince us that nothing is too absurd for some people. We have hardly made up our mind, whether we shall take this epis- copal bull in joke, or in earnest; but as we cannot enter fully upon its merits in this number, we think there will be no harm if we have the joke first.. We therefore copy the following article from the Australian of yesterday :-'~ THE PROTESTANT BISHOP'S PETITION, TO WHICH SIGNATURES ARE BRING SURREP- TITIOUSLY OBTAINED. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We merely notice this as one of the " topics of the day"-as a mere frivolity adapted...
Sailing Directions for Port Essington. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
Sailing Directions for Port Essington. We copy from the Government Gazette the following sailing directions, compiled by J. Jackson, Esq., master of H M. S. Alligator. The clear manner in which Mr. Jackson has pointed out the courses and anchorage will be of the utmost use to masters of vessels trading to, or disposed to call at, the new settlement of .. Victoria." Ships from Torres' Straits bound to Port Es. singion, after passing about ten miles to the northward of Cape Wessel, should steer a course that would carry them about the same distance north or New Year's Island, which lies in latitude 10 O 55' South, longitude 1330 1' East ;from thence a course that would take them at least twelve miles to the northward of Cape Croker, for there is a very.dangerous shoal (which is not laid down in Captain King's Charts), with less than ten feet water on it. ly ing about seven miles to the northward of that Cape, on which two ships have struck lately. There is a channel between this shoal...

Commercial Information. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
Commercial Information. Advices have been received in Sydney of a ship having sailed from Leipzic, in November last, with German emigrants for these Colonies, intending to proceed to Bremer, about sixty miles west of Hamburgh, and after loading to come on to Sydney. As this vessel has not ar rived, it is supposed that she has been detained by the weather, it being the depth of winter when she left Leipsic. The emigrants are a re ligious people called Stephanists.-Australian. The ship Exporter is laid on for South Aus- tralia, and we have heard that it is intended to send a quantity of Flour out of the Colony by her. We hope that His Excellency will cause it to be purchased in behalf of the Government, instead of allowing it to be sent away at this po riod of scarcity. The brig Hind, arrived on Saturday last from New Zealand. She has brought up a quantity of pork, potatoes, &c. The brig Giraffe, arrived from Launceston, on Sunday last. She also has brought a quan- tity of pot...
Country News. Argyle and Murray. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839
Country News. Argyle and Murray &nbsp; During the last month, copious rain has fallen in these counties. The wheat, sown in the early part of July, is now springing up, and looks fresh and healthy. The sharp frosts of &nbsp; the early part of the month have given way to foggy mornings. Grass, too, is improving, and on the whole, this part of the country is now looking much better than it did for several months past. The rain has reached to and beyond Yass, where it is to be hoped it has also done much service. Wheat is exceedingly scarce, and clear in this quarter, and the poorer settlers will have great difficulty in supplying themselves with this very necessary article, as even though wheat and flour should arrive in Sydney from foreign ports, and the prices be reduced, the cost of carriage from Sydney, added to the price, will put it wholly out of the power of poor people with large families to supply themselves. Of vegetables there are none, nor can milk, butter,...
