Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. On the actual state, progress, and prospects of these Colonies, suggested by an exami nation of the estimates for 1840. Sma,--To place in a proper light the esti mates for the year 1840, as determined on by the Governor and C,,uncil, it strikes me that a previous consideration of the actual state and prospects of these Colonies is necessary. The Governor is appointed to superintend the move. ments of the political machine-to -administer the laws, but rarely to change them. The ma jority of the Members of Council are "part and parcel" of the system. The free subject in England enjoying all the benefits of the British constitution, groans under its effects and abuses, which are rapidly disappearing both there and here. The great error of the past and of the present Governor is, the formation of their views and the administration of the laws as if they were governing a free nation, and treating with free and not free...

Education. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 October 1839

It will be a vain task to preach the . union of manhood, if we continue to teach children separation. If we would, make the country one, we must begin by gathering up its fragments while they are yet soft. Thanks to our orig inal nature, unsectarian, unpolitical, unsophisticated as it always 'is, until corrupted by man, this is not difficult. " Children, if left to themselves, will naturally unite. 'Their animosities and prejudices are not theirs but-tbeir'fa thers'. Such mixture of sects and classes is the true discipline by which these pernicious tendencies should be coun teracted. There is no place like a: school to teach universal sympathy,an adulterated Christian benevolence-I will not say (for it is a very unchris tian word) toleration. Separate at present our children, and the next generation will exhibit all the errors and passions of the old tace over.' again. The Protestant school will turn out its annual show of Protes tants-the Catholic school,. its rival batch of Cathol...

Mechanics' School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 October 1839

On Friday evening, Mr. BOWERL delivered the first of a series of lectures on Painting, to a crowded antd respect able audience ; 'a'iro?ort of which we present to our readers : PAINTING. Painting may be defined the art of representing, by the aid of colours, any object that is-discernible,' or that we conceive to be discernible to the eyes. Painting, considered in its most.exalted branch, has' for its end the representation in colours of what ever we conceive to be beautiful, either in nature or in the wide field of imagination; it possesses, therefore, all the attributes of poetry. It speaks to the eyes a language understood by all; and the painter who, by means of a just delineation and colours, pour trays the striking incidents in the histdry of nations, the varied scenes in animate and inanimate nature, and the manifest workings of the human passions is certainly deserving the name of a poet. This idea of the similitude of poetry and painting is by no means new; Simonides says t...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle: DEAR Sir, - Our beautiful district has at length been honored by a visit from Sir George Gipps. His Excellency, and Lady Gipps and suite reached our harbour early on Sunday morning, and at 6 o'clock came ashore amidst shouts of welcome and the gladdened countenances of the assembled inhabitants. After Divine Service, the Governor and party proceeded to the cot- tage of Keelogucs, to partake of the hospitality of its proprietor, (Mr. Plunkett), and it is un derstood that the distinguished visitors are to be guests of the Attorney-General during their stay in Illawarra. Yesterday, at 10 A.M., a deputa tion of the inhabitants waited on the Governor and presented an address in the name of the whole people. The reply of His Excellency was dignified and appropriate, and every way worthy of the successor of Sir Richard Bourke. The vast work of the breakwater was inspected by Sir George, in company with Major Barney and Captain Nicholson, and mos...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 October 1839

We have received Port Phillip papers to Sept. 23rd. After, describing the condition and influence of the different religious bo- dies in that colony, the Port Philip Patriot proceeds as follows : The Romish Church comes next. This body of our fellow Colonists has but lately commenced to build, and, under the pas toral care of the Rev. Mr. Geoghegan, has rapidly erected a very capacious building, in which to worship after the manner of their fathers. We understand that the Rev. Mr. Walsh has joined the former gentleman in laboring for the benefit of the Christians of their Church in this Colony. This body are powerful in numbers, and are very zealous, when their energies are properly directed ; and from their peaceable, orderly conduct, we consider great credit is re flected upon their spiritual guardians. One good trait we cannot omit.-The whole of the Clergymen of this happy, thrice happy Australia, act in the most friendly manner towards each other; and our constant prayer is, lon...

THE MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 4 October 1839

THE MONITOR.   "Responde stultum justa stulitlam suam." SOLOMON. Our contemporary has passed the Rubicon. He cannot now rescue himself from shame and disgrace. " His age shall not protect him." We have given him every fair opportunity of retracting his infamous calumnies, and re-establishing his reputation. We warned him that his honesty was at stake ; and he has disregarded our admonition : his disingenuity and mendacity shall now be made apparent. He has published what he calls an "Answer to the Australasian Chron icle," and he contrives to crowd more ....(there ought not to be a polite name for gross prevarication) into a small space of twenty lines than we have ever seen collected together before. He sets out by saying that " the original of the Protestant book, called the Whole Duty of Man, is a work three centuries old." First falsehood, at the outset. The first edition lies before us, and it is not yet nearly two centiuries old. The Monitor goes on, "' We abjure ...

Country News.   THE CROPS.-Crops are looking delightful on the Hunter, promising an abundant harvest; barley in the neighbourhood of Maitland will be ready for the scythe in a week, the wheat in about a month.   Three bushrangers, armed and mounted, are committing the most serious outrageous throughout the Lachlin district. The name of one of these men is Whitton, and a second is "' Scotchie." They attacked, and plundered, the station of Doctor Gib- son; the stock keeper and his wife   were in the hut, the door of which, with the window, were fastened in the inside; the robbers fired through the   door and shot the stock-keeper's wife in the thigh. The young woman, an emi- grant, is not married more than a few weeks. The bushranger's have taken horses from several stations. Some active measures should be taken to secure these desperate men. DUNGOG.- We have had a visit of the Rev. Mr. Mahony, from Mait land, he was here on the 29th...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle' Sl,--It was with sincere regret that I read in your paper or the Ist instant, the announce ment of Dr. Ullathorno's intended departure from these shores. Is there no means by which he may be kept amongst ourselves ? In what part of the empire can his vast erudition, con sumanate prudence, and solid piety, be of greater service than in the infant church of Australia ? The services which he has done the Catholics of these Colonies, can never be firgotten. Seeing a harvest ripe, and lamenting the fewness o the labourers, he crossed the perilous seas to those countries, in which he expected to find assistance, represented our condition, and so licited co operation. He succeeded in his de sign to:a considerable exteut.-Priests anil Holy Virgins have left all that was dear tothem in this world-braved the dangers of the seas, and are now employed at the good work.
