To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian "?ronicle. Stlt,--I beg leave to inclose you a report of our concert, which took place last evening. The first performance of the evening, was an overture by the 80th regiment, admirably well played. Then followed a duet by 'Madame Gautrot and Mr. Bushelle, au clair de la lune, which, con sidering the quality of Madame Gautrot's voice, was tolerably wellsung. "'Blackeyed 'Susan," by Mrs. Bushelle, was tolerably fair. Song, by Madame Gautrot, ' Una Voce.' was anything but pleasing; the quality of this lady's voice is so truly unmusical, that, were it not for her execution, it really would be painful to sit and listen to her. My " Boylood's Home", was heavy, and seemed ill adapted to Mr. Bushelle's voice. " Non 'piu Andrai, "-this song is a fine composition, and was admirably well sung by Mr. Bushello; it appeared the only thing of the evening that his voice was adapted to. To enter minutely upon every thing, would be only taking up too much of your v...

Welcome Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

Sileuconte liZarbtat. The Harvost has commeouced.in the district of Appin. The crops are heavy, and the best ever reaped in the Colony. New wheat may therefore be'expected in town in the 'course of a few days. At the Hawkesbury, the wheat is in ear, and. shoiuld the present line weather con tinue, some of the forward wheat in this district will be reaped in about a fortnight. Indeed, accounts from all parts of the interior state, that almost every district has been favored with rains, and thatevery thing relating to pasture and agri culture is promising. .As the crops of grain have been most luxuriant in the United States, very large arrivals of flour may be shortly ox pected in Sydney?rom Araerica In reference to this latter subject, the Sydney Herald of yes. terday says \Ve are, most htappy to see by late American papers received per Logan from Boston, whence she sailed on the Ist of Juino, that tle' propects for crops in the' United States never were better than for the present s...

Protestant Sisters of Charity. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

1protestant istErs of atrnrity. He (a Protestant parson) sometimes comes, to Town to visit me. On one of these occa. sions he was complaining of the dialiculty of procuring medical attendance for thesickpoor of his parish, many of whom live far fron the town where the pariah surgeon resides. The surgeon himself was too busy in visiting his rich patients, his assistant was ignorant and inattentive; and my friend was convinced that his poor sick flock often antlered illness, and sometimes death, which earlier and betteroire might have prevented. This gave b'him great pain; and he was wishing that it was 'possible to procure a few women of a superior order to the generality of nurses, and taught by; a residence in the hospitals to recognise and relieve the most common kinds of illiesi. "' They should be," he added, "animated with religionland science-mere humansty cannot'be. relied on.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

Original Correspondence.~ the Editor of the Australasian Chronic e SIa,-I perceive by an observation in the 16th number of the Chronicle, that the assail ants of Catholic verity have left the ' Daily Companion," and resorted to other weapons of attack; but without daring to meet, in any shape, your repeated challenges, to contrast-the passages in the "Daily'Companion" with those in the book of Leviticu.s. I take this opportunity of assuring you, that such dastardly conduct, on the part of your ene. mies, is daily manifesting itself in the clearest manner. During the last two months, I have read that exquisite composition, the Sydney Ga zette, and even the Monitor, (influenced.cer tainly by curiosity rather than a hope of ac-4 quiring any useful information), and I do de clare their lucubrations were very amusing. Day after day I discovered now, but unsuccess ful attempts to support, or rather evade, the un tenable position in which they placed themselves. I often expressed my surpri...

Darrynane House and Abbey. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

artrnttattne j1ote at It bbeg. On our descent we passed a perfeot Pagan altar, which we examined and sketched. Aftier the great pass was eflected, we had a smaller hill to cross before Darrynane became visible. At last we reached an entrance to the grounds, and saw the old grey house, amid a grove oe trees, near the sandy shore of a little bay. 'lThis apparent entrance to the place is not. however, the real one; it is the approach to a public road by which tunerals pass to the old Abbey. As the sun had not yet gone down, we went direct to the ruins of the Abbey. It is situated in a sunny and well-protected nook on a penin sola, which is, I believe, occasionally an island. The pasture of this peninsula is excellent, and our guide told us it is intended soon to be used as a deer-path. " He will only," said our guide, "have to build a wall across here ; as on the other three sides it is walled in by the sea." The Abbey was built in a most retired, Irvely spot, close to the sea; a part ...

Every person agreed as to the necessity of emigration; and if funds could not be found one way, they must be found in another. He stated his opinion, that in the moan time emig...

The Novel Reader. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

The Nover-LB.eader. Sui slumbered in the rocking chair She occupied all day; And in her lap, half opened there, The last new novel lay. Upon.the?hearth, the dying brands Their latest radiance shed; A flaring candle near her stands, With a crown about.its head. Her hair, which long uncrimped had been, Was hanging loosely round; A single curl, by a crooked pin, On the side of her head was bound. Her gown, it had. been white, I ween, But white it was not then ; Her ruffles, too, had once been clean, And might be so again. One slip-shod foot the tender press'd, The other sought the floor; And, folded o'er her heaving breast, ,A dull red shawl she wore. ThI'eflickering' light is fading fast, 'Yet cares not she for mortal things, For, in her busy brain, The novelist's imaginings Are acted o'er'again. Bit, whliile'in this delicious nap Her willing sense is bound, The book, escaping from her lap, Falls lumbering to the ground. She wakes-but 'tis, alas i to see The candle's quivering beam; N...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sin,-Had the Sydney Gazette been the only reviler of the creed of Catholics-the only de famer of their Priesthood, I should not deem it worthy of notice, nor would I claim a place in your columns. The party who support that vulgar publication, know well that something more than the figure hyperbole is necessary to maintain their cause, and that a scrupulous re gard for truth and the decencies of life, is not at all times expedient. The public are aware of the immitigable ferocity with which the Ga zette wars against every individual and every institution that boasts the ancient and respecta. ble name of Catholic. They cannot but have observed the avidity with which that paper seizes upon every unfounded report calculated to blacken their character, and the prompt fa. cility with whicl they are transferred to its co. lumns. The public would not credit the calum nies of .the Gazette-Catholics might despise them. Fortunately a benign Provide...

Cormac, King of Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

Qaormac, ttt(g of Itreant. The following sketch, from a work recently 'published in Dublin, entitled Lives of Distin guished Irishmen, will, we think, interest our readers. In the reign of Corinneac, Ireland at tained her maximum of national prosperity. ' For wisdom and splendour he was the Solo. mon of Ireland : the magnifioent palace of Miodh-eluartn, which he built for his residence, and the works of moral and political wisdom which he left, appear to give aptness to the parallel. An eminent poet of the period des. oribes, with the atthority of an eye-witness, a structure of S00 cubits in length, fifty in breadth, and thirty in height, entered by four teen gates, and containing a vast anti splendid hall, ill.uminated by an immense lanthorn of' costly material and curlous art, with sleepinir apartments furnished with 160 beds. His household was worthy of this building : 150 of the most distilgttished champions of' the king dom surrounded his person, and 1o00 of.his best soldiers f...

A letter addressed .to Lord John Russell (and bearing the democratic signature of Hen ry Brougham), ;n reply to Lord John's letter to the electors of Strond, appears in the MAlrn ing Chronicle. It is a lengthy, and in many respects an able document. His lordship con cludes by asking " Am I then an exception to Walpole's rule ? Am I one who has no price ? Far from it-I am venal-I am to be bought. I stand here for sale at the bidding of your own or any other ministry who may succeed you, as soon as you shall be tired of your subserviency to those I won't name, and begin to find place tnot the more palatable for being unenvied, nor the lighter load for being disencumbered of power. How then am I to be gained-sednoed -purchased-bribed ? Easily enough, shall any government think it worth their while.
