LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

LOCAL. A paper so jealous of its rights as the Sydney Monitor, should not dis- continue to " do as it would be done by." It was hardly fair in the Moni- tor of Friday, to give a column of country news front the Chronicle " without acknowledging it," having lately pounced upon us for real or imaginary mistakes of the same sort. We have no objection to give and take with our neighbours in this way, but we do object to have our feathers plucked and our carcase beaten to boot. The Australian says, that a great excitement has been caused in West Maitland, by a power of attorney hav- ing come out from the heir at law (in Ireland) of Mary Hunt (known by the cognomen Molly Morgan), to re- cover the whole of the land there, 160 acres. Nearly fifty notices of eject- ment have been served upon the dif- ferent parties in possession. Mrs. Cameron's Benefit takes place at the Victoria Theatre, on Thursday week ; and, although from some mis- understanding, she is not to have the advantage of the a...

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Country News. Second robbery, in the noon-day, of the Yass mail within three weeks.-The newpaper remarks of the first robbery of this mail have scarcely reached us when a second robbery of the same mail has been committed. William Tugley, who is temporally employed by the mail contractors, being on his way today, between Gunning and the Bredalbane, was met near Muck Billy, by a man, described by him, to be at least six feet high, aged from 30 to 35 years, wearing a long black frock coat, black trousers, and small cabbage-tree hat, shoes and spurs, armed with a double-barrelled pistol, which he pre- sented at the mail man ordering him to dismount; he enquired for the late driver, whose name he knew, but who was fortunately employed elsewhere, as the robber stated that if he had met him then he would tell no more stories; he then took the whole of the mail bags, public and private, taking at the same time the mail-man's horse, bridle, saddle, &c.-and pointing to a moun tain at...

Review. Lecture on the Man of Sin, delivered at West Mailland, May the 1st, 1839. By the Rev. William Stack. James Teyg & Co., Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 22 October 1839

Review. Lecture on the Man of Sin, delivered at West Maitland, May the 1st, 1839. By the Rev. William Stack. James Tegg & Co., Sydney. We were in hopes that Australia would be free from that prophetic mania which at one time brought the preaching of the gospel in many parts of Europe into contempt. We thought, and wished, that the preachers of religion, of all denominations would confine themselves to the inculcation of the dogmas and duties of Christi anity; we thought that that equality, which a wise government had esta blished among the professors of the different religions, would have been an effectual barrier against those extrava gancies, which a less equitable system of government fostered in the Mother Country. But, it seems, we at least, were no prophet, for if the Austra- lians have not the credulity of John Bull, it is certainly not for want of of prophets and expounders. Sydney has its bearded prophets, sent directly from heaven to announce certain won- ders,-Par...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

'no ltr Jimntt' Lntlil, II. We have received, Van Diemen's Lard papers, to the 6th instant; from which we make the following selections: During the past fourteen days this side of the island has been visited by abundant rains, of which there Is every appearance of some continuance; and the agricultural reports from throughout the interior are upon the whole most gratifying. In some districts, we regret to say, damage has been occasioned by the grub; but we trust'to hear that the injury thus sustained has been comparatively of trifling amount. Both early and late wheats are generally most luxuriant, and there is every prospect at present of a fair wheat harvest. We have not of late years, indeed, heard so univerv sally favourable accounts of the corn crops. -Launceston Advertiser. We regret to state, that this town and neighbourhood is again visited with a r severe catarrh, which, although not so serious in its effects as the Influenza, which raged so generally last year, is yet prod...

Our Youthful Days. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

Qltr Yotttful Dapts. By those few words the scenes of youth are brought to memory in all the vivid colours natu ral to an age, when the turmoils of a busy world are unknown, and the troubles consequent upon entering it unheeded. After fifteen years absence, I visited the village of K - g P--.t; what a mass of pleasing reflections crowded upon my memory. There stood the little church in all its ancient grandeur, as if frowning on the more humble dwellings around; and at a short distance the residence of the pedagogue looking as precise as its lame occupant. The church standing on a hill and almost surrounded by rocks and cliffs, is finely contrasted by the corn and grass fields of the valley. This awakened a feeling of admiration in my bosom which no length of time will ever efface, indeed, when gazing upon the beauties and ruins of sunny Italy, upon the cheerfulness of volatile France, the industry of persevering Holland, the frankness of sturdy benevolent England, and the honesty o...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. No. 2. "Think not only of the road through which you are travelling, but also take care never to lose sight of the blessed country at which you expect shortly to arrive" ST. AUGUSTINE.

O? igittal (ortrespon#ence. To the Editor qf the Australasian Chronicle. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE UIUMAN MlIND, -IN ..sARac OF KNOWLEDOE. No. 2. " Think not only of the road through which you are travelling, but also take care never to lose sight of the blessed country at which you eapect shortly to arrive " Sr. AuousTSNE. Sin;,-It is an admitted principle with Chris. tians of every denomination, that there are certain errors fatal to men's salvation. Christ declares that scandals will come, but ' woe to him by whom they do come." St .Paul foretells that heresies will arise; and we may add, woe to him from whom they take their, rise. Hence St.' Paul ranks "heresies, and schisms, and sects,,' among the sins that exclude from the kingdom of God. The first thing, then, that man in search of Christian knowledge should learn, is, the nature and meaning of "heresy." as being fatal to his eternal happiness. The meaning: of the original Greek term is, "a choosing, a .selection, a sect." Its...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

Sydney : FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1839. THE Australasian Packet, which :arrived on Tuesday, has brought little important' intelligence that had not previously reached the colony. We have, however, received some valuable new publications, principally those of that admirable association, the British Catholic Institute, and from these we shall make extracts that will be found most interesting to our readers. Four French clergymen have arrived by this vessel for the mission of New Zealand,--the Rev. Messrs. Petit Jean, Ferron, Le Comte, and Grimond, besides a lay brother in the capacity of a servant. They appear to be men fully imbued with the spirit of their voca. tion, and cannot fail to be a most welcome present to the good Bishop Pompallier, and a great acquisition to his flourishing mission. The missionaries express themselves highly grateful for the kindness of Captain Nicholls, (brother, we believe, of the editor of 'the Australian,) who shewed them every attention during the voyage. ...

Genie du Christianisme of the Vicomte de Chateaubriand. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

tenie du CGlristianisme of the Vicomnte de Chateaubriand.. "We were one day walking behind the, palace of the Luxemblourg,' and were accidentally led to the very same Carthusian convent which Fontanes has celebrated. We behold a church, the roof which had fallen in; the lead had been stripped from the windows, and the door-ways blocked with up right planks. Most of the other build ings of the monastery no longer existed. Long did we' stroll among the sepul chral stones of black marble, scattered here and there upon the ground ; some were completely dashed in pieces, others still-exhibited some vestages-of inscriptions. We advanced into the inner cloister; there grew two wild plum trees amidlhigh grass and rubbish. On the walls were to be seen paintings half effaced, representing events in the life of St. Bruno; a dial plate was left on one of the sides of the church ; and in the sanctuary, instead of that hymn of peace formerly chanted in honour of the dead, was heard the grating of...

A Hint to Readers of Trabels. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

Sittint to l.abera oft rnbals. I had heard that the Protestants who were enemies of all decoration in their worship never adorned their churches with vases of flowers. Hav ing been a few days before at Ham burgh, I was walking alone one evening in the environs of that town; I saw about me several pretty gardens bplonging to the peasants, which were joined together and bounded only by a little hedge. I enteredone of these gardens, which was filled with vegeta bles, with the exception of a little square plot covered with charming flowers, very carefully cultivated. I knew enough of German to ask a few questions, and to understand a tew phrases. I congratulated the honest woman who received me on her taste for flowers; to which she replied that she reared them for the church. Sur prised at this, I cried out, " What for the church ?" " Yes," replied she, "those flowers are intended for nose gays for the church, and you will find the same in all our gardens." This was positive enough; ho...
