To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Szn,-It is unfortunately but too customary with the enemies of our religion, when they wish to represent us as'the chosen apostles of bigotry and persecution, to advert to a few iso. lated facts, which no man, at the present day, who pretends to be actuated by Christian hu manity and benevolence, would for an instant attempt to defend. Hlow often have the mas sucre of St. BartholomeW's day, and the tortures of the Inquisition, been held up to the detesta tion of an indignarnt world, and how often have people been told to avoid," as the vilest onemhies of the race, those who couldsanction such eaior mities ? But what Catholic, let us ask, would now come forward and say, that the sudden murder of 1500 * unoffending persons Was jais.. tifiable? or that the burning or tortrirlhg a tridn for a mere difference of opinion, wai:in accord anco with the charitable and sublime precepts of Christianity ? i.vil men, we all know, have existed in every ...

SLOCAL. The election for .the Chairman of Quarter Sessions took place on Wed nesday. The result is not known, but., there appears to be little doubt that Mr. Manning is the successful candidate. Mr. S. Lyons proceeds in business in his formerspirited manner-; .we per ceive he will have an extensive sale of Wines, Spirits, Floor, Pork and other provisions to.morrow evening.-- See advertisement. We have been requested to state that Jacob Whitfield, of Market-lane, who stands committed to take his trial for receiving stolen property, is not ,the gunnmaker of King-street, as ru moured by some talkative gentlemen. 1'he cargo of the American brig Logan came to the hammer on Wed nesday;: by Mr. S. Lyons. The announcement of this sale brought a greatattendance at Campbell's Wharf; every article realized excellent prices. The .tobacco met with ready pur chasers at 2s. Ld.

Sandwich Islands. Continuation of M. Bachelot's Narrative of his Expultion from these Islands, at the Instigation of the Protestant Missionaries. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

ýattcxwttij Islatr1t. Continuation of if. Bachelot's Nrarrative of his Expultion from .these Islands, at the Inrstigation of the Protestant Missionaries. " With regard to the progress of religion, the whole world will attest whether the Catholics are opposed to it or not. It is not to forward this progress that the Catholic priest in China, in Cochinchina, and in other places, braves the menaces of perse cution and courageously meets death ? You insinuate that we are opposed to the propagation of the gospel. Am I to understand by this propagation the sale of some translated passages of the Bible to men who cannot under stand them? If so, I plead guilty to the charge. The Catholic Church makes known to us the excellence of the inspired writings, but forbids us to make them the object of pecuniary speculations. In return for work ordered by myself, I have not yet learnt to give a certain number of tracts to men who, not knowing how to read, are obliged to sell them at prices much lowe...

Storming of Seringapatam. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

ýtormting of ýýcitttgapatant. IT was doubtless the knowledge, or, at all events, the apprehension of these facts, which led to the desperate character of Tippoo's movements, and subsequent defence of his capital. The victim of his own impolicy and a?bition, he saw that his destruction Was'aimed at and had become inevit able. There was no shrinking from the sentence that had gone forth against him, and all that was left him was to die manfully, with his sword " in his hand. Hence, like one of Ilhi . own royal tigers,` he turned so fiercely I upon his pursuers. With a column of L G,000 infantry, joined to Lally's corps t of Frenchmen, he made more than one ý furious sortie, especially against the > Bombay army. Though repeatedly driven in, he as resolutely renewed I his efforts, and sometimes with a loss I of six or seven hundred men upon a Ssingle sally. On the evening of the ý 20th, it had been deemed necessary to , dislodge the enemy from some in trenchments behind the bank of a...

®trigfnai oýt>e spounbt tce. CONTINUATION OF "A SUBSCRIBERSB REMARIKS 'ON THE STATE OF THESE COLONIES, SUGGEOS* TED BY AN EXAMINATION OF THE ESTIMATES Fon 1840. To the Editor qf the Australasian Chronicle. Stii,--t has been observed, " that the Brit ihll contitution has so much that is good and worthy of preservatiuon-that a lunver of true liberty would rather live under it, than any other mode of government, anciertt or moderti. Its destruction at the present moment would be the most melancholy tlhing that could happan, both to Englishmen and the world. Such an event would retrogade the march of improve ment, many centuties; and he that could coolly set about to effect it, mnst unite the frenzy of a maniac, to the malignity of a demon." Thtis is true to the IetteT; anti yet with this unde niable fact before us, its first principles are scarcely known,, either to the Australa sian, or to thsuae of other lands inhabiting Australasia ; tlthough this is the constitution under which ...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

Sydney: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1S39. IT would appear to have been the determination of those who established the Protestant religion in England, to banish along with the ancient worship the very name of a free government. We have seen what progress Henry the VIIIth made in his career of des potism; one of the first acts of his successor, or rather executors,--for Edward was a child-was a breach of the constitution. The monarchy of England had been partly hereditary, and partly elective, and although its elective character had long virtually ceased, the form was still preserved, and it was the custom, down to the time of the Reformation, to ask the people " if they were willing to have and obey the king." The guardians of Edward, however, among whom was the patriarch Cranmer, proceeded to the coronation of the young King, without asking whether the people were willing to have him or not. A Parliamnent was called, which pro oeeded at once to confiscate certain Church property which had e...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-I think it would be well if you would notice in your paper, the circumstance of mi- nisters of the English Protestant Church getting travelling expenses, and forage or payment for forage for a horse or horses; these gentlemen also, with their families, are gratuitously at- tended by the Colonial medical surgeons. The chaplains of the Catholic persuasion do not de- mand or receive any of these advantages-yet is is well known that they travel much more than any other ministers. As to them, the ex- pense of keeping horses is very great; if all re- ligions are equal in the eye of the law-it is un- fair that gentlemen, many of whom have large salaries, confining themselves to more Sunday duty, and who derive large emoluments from other sources, should be allowed privileges which more laborious ministers have not claimed, much less received.-I am, &c. J. [The Catholic clergy are certainly entitled to travelling expences, equally wi...

If you approve of them, I shall be happy to leave my present uneligible situation and become your humble servant.-PRINTER 's DEVIL. Sydney * * * * * * * * * Office, Oct. 16. We do not believe that the Herald, as was reported, means to turn radical, and destroy the Church.-P's D.

To Correspondents. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

To Correspondents.   " ALIQUIS."- Nemo is a goose, and fur- nishes an answer in himself; - he is not worth our Correspondent's paper and time. ALIQUIS ought to choose a better theme. There is a letter in yesterday's Gazette, signed'" G. W. ROBERTSON," which is directed against us. The Editor says, the writer is a Gentleman, and therefore we must decline re- plying to his letter, as we should be sorry to treat a Gentleman as the writer of that tissue of mistakes deserves. There is the less reason to regret this, as we have given a full state ment of the facts in a former number, which are all for us, and against G. W. R. So much in regard to the " FORGERS," M'Ghee, Todd, and Co. as to the rest-- " Tout ce qu' est differd, n'est pas pardu." ***, All communications to be addressed to the Editor, at the Chronicle Office, 67, Pitt-street, Sydney.

The abstract fact that his Business is superior in extepLt. aun respectability to any in the Co lony, is, he believes, not even attempted to be denied by the most unscrupulous of his less for tunate rivals; buts though these worthies are well aware of the true canse of his unexampled success, they labour most industriously to con coal from the public that it is wholly attribu table to the one circumstance-that he has never, like them, proceeded on the absurd and ill-founded idea, that "the Gentlemen of New South }Wales could not discriminate between nominal and actual cheapness-and has there fore never, like them, in their desperate e.forls to retrieve a rapidly retrograding business, been tempted to reduce his prices to so low a standard, as to render good material--good good workmanship...

Country Intelligence.   GEELONG, October 12, 1839.__I     wish to inform you of the alarming state of this part of the country. Bush- rangers are out in all directions, com- mitting depredations of the worst de- scription. Mr. Hardy, the police Magistrate of Yass, with a number of the settlers, are in pursuit of a gang in the neighbourhood of Grosvenor's Inn. Another band of settlers are out in the direction of Gundaroo. Yesterday two other gentlemen and I proceeded from hence, intending to proceed towards the Lachlan River on business. About ten miles from here we saw a horse on the road-side lying dead, at A. Shop herd's; but not far from where the horse lay, we learned that Mr. Red- fern's superintendent was fired at by three men, and escaped with his own life, leaving his horse shot where we saw him. On reaching Mr. Shelly's station, Maringo, we saw the superin- tendent, whose name is Lincoln; he told us the men never spoke to him, but as s...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-The leading article of the Herald of the 11th instant, commences thus, in the words of the Attorney General: " It is lamentable that religion should be made the stalking-horse for the stoppage of education at every step." It then deprecates the influence of any clergyman on educational matters, particularly of a clergy man of rank and influence like to Dr. Broughton, who, not only formed part, but successfully headed the opposition, both to Sir Richard Bourkes' and Sir George Gipps' systems of edu cation ; though they differed from each other, Sir Richard's was opposed because it excluded, Sir George's-because it introduced the Bible into the schools. The Herald joined in the op position to Sir Richard's system, but not that of Sir George's, because the Bishop wished to be so exclusive as to give his own interpretation to the Bible. This the Herald condemns, and asserts, " that no priest should be allowed to ...

The Governor then laid the Country Mar- kets' Bill upon the table, which was ordered to undergo the third reading on Tuesday next. The Bill for the extension of St. James' Church was read a second time, and after some immaterial alterations being made in the wording, was ordered to be read a third time on Tuesday next. The Governor then produced a Bill for the establishing of a Synod in this Colony, in lieu of a Presbytery, which appeared only a change rendered necessary by the in crease of the Presbyterians, in the same manner that it had been deemed expedient to supersede the fo...
