Catholic Germany, [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 11 October 1839

Qrattjolic exitaunp, Every great abuse of human reason, by a natural revulsion of feeling, inspires a certain dread and distrust of its powers. This has been more than once exemplified in the history of the Church. So, at this momentous period, some of the German Catholio powers sought in obscuration a refuge and security against religious and political inuovations, and denied to science that encouragement which she had a right to look for at their hands-a policy as infatuated as it is culpable ; for, while igno. rance draws down contempt and disgrace on religion, it begets in its turn, as melancholy experience has proved, those very errors and that very unbelief, against which it was de signed as a protection. Had the Court of Austria acceded to the proposal of Leibnitz for establishing at Vienna that Academy of Sciences which le afterwards succeeded in founding at Berlin. the glory of that great iesuscitation of the German mind, which occurred in the middle of the eighteenth centu...

Music. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 11 October 1839

Music I music!-a spell and a sound, That in earth, and in air, and in hearts are found: 'In the stream that splashes in light along, Filling the skies with its sleepy song: In the crystal foam, that crests the sea, As it riots in spray and mystery: In the forest gloom, that shadows the earth, When the orient sun from his bowers goes forth: In the mellow hymn of the plaintive bird, When, at morn, its voice through the clouds is heard: In beauty's brow and her eye of blue, When graced and blushed by the mountains' hue: In the stars of night, as they sail above, 'Through the fair bright spheres of heaven and 'love: In the winds of eve, that kiss the lyre, Callingsweet sounds to life, where they expire: There's music in each and every thing, -In thew ivi'fer's tale and the voice of spring; But o1'l above all, in the bonds that wind In friendship's links round the youthful mind, Making each chord of the playful heart Its tones of joy to the soul impart, And giving to life the tenderest p...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 11 October 1839

Sydney: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1839. TRANSPORTATION to New South Wales has ceased. The Governor, on Tuesday last, announced the re ceipt of a despatch from the Marquis of Normanby, dated the 11th May, 1839, which made known the deter mination of Her Majesty's Govern- ment, that transportation to these Co lonies should be immediately disconti nued. The convicts who may arrive during the present and part of the en suing year are to be forwarded to Nor folk Island, and are not, in any case to be assigned to private individuals. Those who are at present in the Colony will continue to be assigned, but settlers must now be prepared for their imme diate diminution, and for the entire discontinuance of assignment at a very early period. That this arrangement will be a cause of great and immediate loss to many Colonists is certain, but that it was in other respects desirable, and will ultimately tend to their be nefit, and that of the Colony, even in a pecuniary point of view, we do not enterta...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle A CHILD TOO MUCH FOR A MAN—Monitor. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 11 October 1839

Tb the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle A CHILD TOO MUCH FOR A MAN-Monitor. SIR,-This the Sydney Monitor acknow ledges as his own case, relative to his late con- troversy, regarding the "Daily Companion "-- that he is fairly outargued, and gives it up. I really feel for the poor Monitor-he ought to be spared on account of his venerable age; for I firmly believe that he brought on this contro versy, either through ignorance, or from a total failure of memory. He must have been either ignorant of his Bible, and that texts similar to those in the " Daily Companion," and in greater variety, were to be found in Leviticus, &c., or he must have forgotten the early lessons of his youth. He certainly committed himself, and his friends are now trying to extricate him out of the dirty quagmire he so foolishly plunged himself into; it is pleasing however to see that he hears with a true Christian spirit, all the cutting and lashing he now gets, without uttering a word in his own def...

Original Correspondence. CONTINUATION OF THE ARTICLE ON THE STATE OF THESE COLONIES, SUGGESTED BY A CONSIDERATION OF THE ESTIMATES FOR 1840. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 11 October 1839

Original Correspondence. CONTINUATION OF THE ARTICLE ON THE STATE OF THESE COLONIES, SUGGESTED BY A CON SIDERATION OF THE ESTIMATES FOR 1840. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle Sir-The members of the Church of Eng land constitute the vast minority in this Co- lony ; the Presbyterians, Catholics, Metho- dists, &c., far out-numbering that sect. The wealthy proprietors, whether freed or emi grant, are generally of that class. Theirs must not, in future, be considered as the public opi nion, or even a great part of it. They, as I have proved, control the opinions of the great majority ; or, rather, they deprive that majo rity of any and every opportunity of expressing their real opinions. If any further proof of this were wanting, let a public meeting be called, in any one of those places (unless it be a mere depot for criminals and government officers) from whence these petitions are said to have emanated, and let it be stated, that every person there shall be free to ...

AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

.:AUSTRIA. I cannot forbear noticing the very exaggerated statements sometimes put forth by party spirit in England, re specting the state -of learning in the Austrian'Empiro. Without pretend ing to any personal knowledge of that country, there are, howover, a certain number of admitted and well attested facts,which prove that however inferior in mental cultivation Austria may be to some other states of Catholso, as well as: Protestant Europe, she yet holds a distinguished place in litera ture and science. The very general diffusion' of popular education in that country-the great success with which all the arts and sciences connected with industry are cultivated - the admirable organization of -its medical board-the distinguished Physicians, theoretical as well as practical, whom it has prodged-the great attention bestowed on strategy and the sciences subservient to it-the excellence to the histrionic art has there attained the universal passion for music, and the unrivalled degree ...
