Enclosures referred to in the foregoing Despatch. 2, Middle Scotland Yard, 22nd April, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

Enclosures referred to in the foregoin9 Despatch. 2, Middle Scotland Yard, 22nd April, 1839. Sir,-In reference to your letter of the 22nd ultimo, accompanied by some recent despatches from Sir George Gipps on Emigration, and Finance, and adverting also to the de putations which have waited upon the Marquess of Normanby on the same subject, I have the honor to submit the following report for his Lordship's consideration. It appears by the Governor's des. patch of the 19th of August, 1838, that the land revenue had fallen off con siderably, and that assuming the ex penditure on Emigration at £100,000 per annum, Sir George Gippa estimat ed that nearly the whole accumulated balance in New South Wales would be exhausted by the end of the present year, and that the accruing revenues afterwards would be unequal to the ex penditure at that rate. But in point of fact the outlay on Emigration to Now South Wales, by this department alone amounted to about £110,000 last year, and although some ...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

Sydney:     TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1839. If it has been the custom, as we stated in another number, to speak of Catholicism and slavery as being in seperably connected-the dawn of the reformation has been exultingly point- ed at as the era of civil liberty. Never were two propositions sustained more at variance with fact. We have shown by a succinct but faithful account of the successful struggles of our Catholic ancestors to establish a representative government, that as far as England is concerned-and the illustration is still stronger in other countries-the un- ceasing efforts of the Catholic people, led on by their virtuous and patriotic clergy,were directed to the mainten- ance, preservation, and extension, of their civil right and immunities. We had advanced in our investigation as far as the reign of Henry VIII, when we were interrupted by the late ar- rivals from Europe. We now proceed to examine what influence the change of religion, in every sense m...

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

To Correspondents.     "'A Subscriber's'' third letter on the state and prospects of these Colonies has been re-ceived. " A Lover of Music '' Our own protest at the end of the letter from Windsor in our   last is a sufficient answer to the motive therein imputed to our Correspondent. We however agree with him in thinking that it is time to commence musical criticism, particularly when   we see daily whole columns of puffery written by persons who evidently could not tell the difference between the Tonic and Subdominant in harmony, or the Diatonic and Chromatic in melody; and who talk learnedly about the beauty of a semitone and other nonentities !   All communications to be addressed to the Editor, at the Chronicle Office, 67 Pitt-street,   Sydney.

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

Van Diemen's Land. In the Tasmanian of Sept. 27th, we find a flat contradiction of the report that it was the intention of Sir John Franklin to tender his resignation. We cannot do better than give our contemporary's own words on the matter.: " We observe, with astonishment, a statement in the Colonial Times, relative to the resignation of Sir John Franklin. Upon what authority our fellow labourer announces this intelligence, we do not know. He says, "that it came from a channel that convinces him of its accuracy; and we readily believe him, because we are firmly of opinion that the conductors of the Colonial ;Times are particularly careful and scrupulous, as to the admission of any matter, either offensive or incorrect. Ad mitting this, we must, nevertheless, beg leave to contradict our Contemporary's statement. Sir John Franklin has no more idea of resigning the Government of this Colony , than we have of succeeding him in his office." TWENTY-FIRST REGIMENT.-The 21st &nbsp...

The Church of Rome. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

The Church of Rome.     Oh, Holy Church of Rome! sublime and pure, Safe is thy rock, thy doctrines how secure ! Thy Sacred founder,with Almighty hand Thy deep foundation laid, and bade thee stand Firm and unyielding to remotest time, in every age the same, in every clime. Two thousand years have nearly wing'd their flight, And sunk into the oblivious womb of night, Since first thy Maker fix'd thee on thy rock And bade thee brave hell's never ceasing shock And yet thou stand'st; unblemish'd, holy, fair, As when thy Builder first thy dome did rear. Nor shalt thou fail;-though factious men may rage, And, leagued with hell, eternal warfare wage, Thy walls of adamant shall stand secure, Whilst earth, and heaven, and sun, and moon endure. The weapons found against thee nought prevail, Shatter'd they fall, like leaves before the gale. Christ's Holy Church, His spotless Spouse, art thou:- Then what can mar the beauty of thy brow ?-- Not Slanders breath, nor Envy's ...

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

Port Phillip. We have received Port Phillip pa- pers to the 5th inst., they are much more interesting than usual. We can only insert in our present number the following extracts from the Gazette :-- On Sunday last, the 29th Sept., a meeting was held in the Catholic Cha- pel, for the purpose of raising such a sum of money as would entitle the ministers at Melbourne to receive the ordinary Government stipend, when £116 was collected in cash, besides £20 in promissory notes. By the direc- tions of the Secretary of State for the Colonies, a minister of any religious community is entitled to a salary of £150 a year, upon satisfactory proof having been given, that the sum of £300 have been lodged by his congre- gation in the hands of properly ap- pointed trustees, or expended in any permanent building of worship. The sum of £172 has been laid out in erect- ing a temporary chapel, which, there fore, cannot be taken into computation. About £200 are now on hand, while promises of further sup...

That the connexion between the Colonial Presbyterian Church and the Church of Scot- land be defined, showing that while we acknow- ledge our individual responsibility to the Church of Scotland at present neither claims nor do we recognise, any jurisdiction over our Courts.   3. That whatever the judicatories of the Pa rent Church may do in the case of Dr. Lang, during his absence from this Colony, so far as their proceedings may be grounded on his con duct in reference to the division in the Colonial Presbyterian Churches, the proposed General Synod will receive him as a Member, simply on his acquiescing in the terms of union. 4.

Country Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 October 1839

In the neighbourhood of Lakes Bathurst and George, Braidwood, the county of St. Vincent, and the whole of the southern districts, there, has been a great abundance of rain which his had a wonderful effect in promoting the suc- cess of pastoral and agricultural operations. Kings' County has had occasional rains during the last month, particularly in the northern and eastern districts; the crops have an encoura- ging appearance, and the sheep are improving in carcase in consequence of the mildness of the lambing season. In Argyle County a great quantity of rain has fallen since the commence- ment of this month, and the roads are in many places impassable. The crops aend vegetation in general are in a prosperous and rapidly pro- gressive state. In the counity of Murray there has been a constant rain nearly the whole of this month, which has had the effect of ac- celerating, the growth of the pasture, in con- sequence, of which the horses, sheep and horned cattle in this part of the cou...

A Bishop of the Dark Ages. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

A Bishop of the 'Dark Ages. Robert Grosseteste was indebted for his education to the charity of the mayor of Lincoln; and by his proficiency amply res paid the discernment of his benefactor. He taught at Oxford wirlh unbounded applause: in the catalogue of his works we discover treatises on almost every branch of science; and he was pronounced by friar Bacon (a competent judge for the age), perfect in divine and human knowledge. From a prebendal stall he was promoted to the episs copal throne in the church pf Lincoln ; and an extensive diocese offered hin a fair field for the display of his abilities, and the ex: ertions of his zeal. With the same views as his metropolitan he brought to the cons test a very different character, a resolution of mind which nto difficulty could daunt, no defeat could subdue. Whien that amiable prelate advised him to desist from an im= practicable attempt, and wait in patience for a more favourable time, he replied that he should do his duty, and leave ...
