EXTRACT OF A Letter of Dr. Pompallier, Published in "Les Annales de la propagation de la foi," dated Sydney, Dec. 25, 1837. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

EXTRACT OF A Letter of Dr. Pompallier, Published in " Les Annales de la propagation de la foi," dated Sydney, Dec. 25, 1837. "I hasten to send you some im- portant news on the state of our Mis- sions, and on my arrival at New Zea land, which I hope to reach in about twenty days. Hence I expect to be able to communicate to you more de- tailed intelligence, and also to write to the gentlemen at the head of the Institution for the Propagation of the Faith. In my letter from Otaheite, which I suppose you have received, I men- tioned that it would be better to sus- pend the establishment of a central house in Mexico or in California. I am glad I did so; for I now find that Sydney is by far the best place, as the vessels which come hither from all parts of Europe, and particularly from England, and afterwards sail for the different islands of Oceanica, will afford us facilities that could be no where found. Our voyage from Otaheite was a dangerous one, but (thank God) no thing untoward oc...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, OCT. 8, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 October 1839

Sydney:   TUESDAY, OCT. 8, 1839. We conceive that the annals of hu man folly do not contain a relation of a more ridiculous proceeding than that which had place the other day at the meeting of Dr. Broughton's Diocesan Committee. When we read the first resolution, which was unanimously adopted by that meeting, we could hardly believe that the whole report was not a jeu d'esprit; and it was only after examining it carefully that we became convinced by internal evidence of its genuineness. The meeting was composed of Members of Council, Magistrates, Clergymen, &c., belong ing to the Anglican Church, and that the absurdity of their proceedings may appear more clearly, our readers ought to bear in mind, that by the law of this Colony there is no dominant Church, but all Christians are upon a perfect equality, as regards their connexion with the State. Upon this principle it is, that all the operations of Government, both in its legislative and executive capacity are ...

tjeloo1 Of St'tt0.* On Friday the Rev. Mr. Saunders con tinued his lectures on Paimography. After some general introductory remarks relative to the nature of the ancient writings, the lecturer referred to the lers in use among the Hebrews, which many assert ex isted previous to the universal deluge; these were retained '"4 to the time of .the cap= tivity of the Israelites in Babylon, but on their delivery from that captivity, they brought with them the alphabet of the Chaldeans. The ancient Greeks received first sixteeu letters from Cadmnus,-but subsequently four from Palamides, and the same number from Sinonides, this alphabet could either be written backwards or: forwards, at pleasure; and it. as thus that the Greeks were ac= customred to write alternately from right to left, anil vice versa. (Here the lecturer pro= ceeded to illustrate hisi statement by a sketch). After the idea was once established that certain sounds should be represented by certain signs, it was obvious that t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA.     By accounts from South Australia, we learn that agricultural operations, which have been so long neglected in that province, are now beginning to occupy the attention of the settlers, and that farms are daily springing up in various parts of the Colony. A Botanical Garden has been com- menced in the neighbourhood of Ade- laide, which is already enriched with a good collection of specimens, and by the spirit with which it is carried on, bids fair to vie even with many of a similar kind in Europe. — Corre- spondent.

Mr. Jones presented a petition, signed by a number of respectable mercantile persons, praying for the construction of a wharf to the north ward of the Dock-yard, or the western side of the Cove, the expences to be paid out of the funds for the founda tion of a circular wharf. After the petition had been read the Governor remarked, that its reference was rather to the execution of the work than the Legislative functions of the Council. It was his opinion (although he could not tell from whence that opinion was derived) that the circular wharf was to be erected out of the proceeds of the land to be given up from the Domain, the work had been commenced on the west side of the Cove, because it could be easier kept in order there than in the centre of the town, and as a...
