Influence of Circumstances. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 18 October 1839

Influence of Circumstances. IN the year 1622, when Paris was afflicted with a long and severe famine, M. de Sallo, returning from a sum mer's evening walk, with only a little foot-boy, was accosted by a man, who presented his pistol, and in a manner far from the resoluteness of a harden ed robber, asked him for his money. M. de Sallo, observing that he came to the wrong man, and that he could get little from him, added, " I have only three pistoles about me, which are not worth a scuffle, so much good may they do you with them; but let me tell you; you are in a bad way." The man took them, and without ask ing him for more, walked off with an air of dejection and terror. The fel low was no sooner gone, than M. de Sallo ordered his boy to follow him and see where he went, and to give him an account of everything. The lad obeyed, and followed him through several obscure streets, and at length saw him enter a baker's shop, where he observed him change one of those pistols and buy a larg...

Sandwich Islands. Conclusion of M. Bachelot's Narrative of his Expultion from these Islands, at the Instigation of the Protestant Missionaries. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Conclusion of Al. Bachelot's 2Varrative of his Expultioin from these Islands, at the Instigation of the Protestant Missionaries. " What I have hitherto stated, you .have probably learnt from brother Leonard; what am I now going to mentipn, occurred since his departure. On the 23rd of December, we re marked a large crowd of spectators assembled at the entrance of our ha bitation. An inferior chief, who came with two hand-carts, soon informed us of the cause of their excited cariosity. " I am come, said he, for your trunks," " If, I replied, you are ordered to take them away, you may do so; but do not expect that I intend to give them to you." Judging from the cool manner in which I spoke, that it would be useless to urge his demand, he after waiting for some time quietly with drew. " On the 24th we said mass, as we had just reason to suppose, for the last time at Woahou; and gave commu nion to the kind hearted Melchior and to an an old Spaniard. At our door, which we kept locked, cro...

Mechanics School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Mechanics School of Arts. On Friday evening, -Mr. Saunders deli. vered the last of a series of lectures on Paleography. The lecturer, comnmenced by describing the materials used in: wri 'ting. It was. probable. that amnigff the earlier writers wood ,was chiefly used, on which they formned - their letters by the aid of charcoal--it was in this manner that the laws and ordinances of Solon were written. Some of the earliest inscriptionk were made on clay, as in the case of the Babylonian bricks referred to in the last lecture, but even in this case, it is more than probable that those impressionshaii been received from 'wooden dies which must first have been cut for the purpose; but'on account of the perishable nature of .wood, few of the kind have been found ; the first inscriptions, it is more than probable, were cut in the living rock ; it is by inscrip tions on stone, that we have received the most valuable of ancient records-and it is by similar inscriptions that we hope to con ve...

He says we're all murtherers-div'1 a bit less, And that even our Priests, when we go to confess, Give us lessons in murth'ring, and wish us success! When ax'd how he da red by tongue or by pen, To belie, in this way, seven millions of men, Faith, he said 'twas all tould him by Docthor Den, " And who the divil's he ?" was the question that flew From Christhian to Christhian-but not a sowl knew.

Colonization of New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

colo3~ntattot or fltew Zgaianib. (From the Glasg'ow Chronicle.) The subject of colonization is in creasing in interest every day; and of late the islands of New Zealand have attracted much attention, as presenting one of the finest fields in the world for the foundation of a British Colony. A bill was introduced into Parliament last session, the object of which was to plant a Colony in New Zealand on the same principles as the Colony of South Australia. For some reasons, not generally understood, this bill did not receive the support of Government, and it was thrown out. But notice has been given that it is to be brought in again during the present session, as soon after Easter as possible. We be lieve that Government objects to vest ing the Government of the Colony in commissioners, and would rather that a Crown Colony were established ; but at all events, it is resolved that British protection shall be extended to all settlers in the country, and orders have been already given for...

Todd versus M'Ghee. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Todd versus 1VI'Ghee. (From the Limerick Chronicle.) We must express our gratification at finding the Rev. Mr. Todd entering the lists as a champion against Forgery M'Ghee, Gregg, and the rest of the Mountebanks : The Rev. James Todd, F.T.C.D., preached a sermon in the College Chapel on Sunday, which produced a considerable sensation among the fel lows and students. The text was from 1 Tim. iv, 1, 2,.and 3 verses. It was the last of his Donnelan lectures. This portion of the Scripture has been very generally applied by Pro testant ;theologians, on the authority of the learned J. P. Mode and Bar tholomew Newton, to the departure from the faith made by the Church of Rome. The preacher undertook to show that this was not the true inter pretation of the text, because it could not be said that the Church of Rome apostatised from the faith once de livered to the Saints; for she held all the essential doctrines of Christianity enumerated in the preceding verse the incarnation of the son-hi...

This celebrated, personage was born of' a father, at the neiglhbouting town of Wickhan', either too mean to have: a surname, or too obscure to have it recorded. Our young clerk, however, proved the truth of his motto before he'atdbpted It, that manners (mores) or merit makylth man. Ile was endowed from nature with transcendant talents, and he began, fromn his early South, to cnultivate them with unrivalled diligence. His parents being in narrow cir cutmstances, he was chiefly indebted for his education to the liberality of Nicholas Uveda'e, lord of the manor of Wickham, and constable of Winchester Castle. This was conducted first'at the place of his birth, and afterwards •at a school in the city. of Winchester, which stood on the very spot where he afterwards founded his college. In the character of a student, he was distinguished not less by his piety thdn his diligence. lie was accustomed every morning to frequent the cathedral church, and to dedicate the day by hearing mass, whic...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. SIR,- Your paper of the 8th current was this morning sent to me by a friend, and I was not a little surprised to find the following sentences in a letter to you from a Correspondent, whose signature is M- DD-. "The Presbyterian school of Bathurst is one of those to which these precious fragments have made their way, (the fragments referred to are 'Extracts from Dens'   Theology,') and that a few days since the worthy school-master distributed the pamphlets to the children." I do hereby publicly declare, and can easily prove that the above quotations are groundless fabrications, and I request you to make known the proper name and residence of the author of them, which will only relieve you from disa- greeable consequences. The school, under my charge, is conducted on the strictest principles of the Presbyterian Church and God's word (the Bible) is the book alone used as the only rule of faith and prac- tice.-I am, Sir, yours r...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Sydney: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1s39. We have observed in more than one of the papers, remarks upon the number of prisoners, which are said to be found loitering about Saint Mary's Cathedral. One has gone so far as to call the attention of the Authorities to the fact. Perhaps it, would have been better had these censorious gentlemen made some enquiry into the circumstances of the case. They would then have found, that what they have thought proper to censure, is nothing more than a part of a very judicious system of imparting religious instructi- on to these poor men. It is well known, that a certain time is allotted, after the arrival of the prisoners, to this paramount object; and as it has been found impossible to fix their attention for any considerable time upon the matters in question, their time of attendance during the day is divided into three portions; the short inter vals between which, they are allowed to walk outside the church, to enable them the better to digest the inst...

Sebastian Bach. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Sam Wesley was some years since at a musical party, where he was ad dressed by a young lady, with " My dear Mr. Wesley, do you think you could recollect one of Bach's fu gues ?"-I don't know," said Wesley, '" but I'll try; which do you wish ?" Some difficulty arising upon this point, Wesley sat down to the instrument, and played the first of the set. By this time his enthusiastic admiration of them became his only feeling, and he continued playing away from me mory till he had finished the whole, to the delight of some, at least, of his hearers. His exertions had been great, and his host had supplied him with wine so liberally during the per formance, that at the end of it he was completely " Bacchi plenus," and a coach was sent for to take him home. The ruling passion was reigning in his mind as strongly as ever, so that, when he was on the point of entering the coach, he addressed the driver with, " I say, coachman, do you know Sebastian Bach?"-" Who, Sir?"said Jarvis-" Sebastian ...
