Continuation of "A Subscriber's" remarks on the state of these Colonies, suggested by an examination of the Estimates for 1840. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

Continuation of " A Subscriber's" remarks on the state of these Colonies, suggested by an examination of the Estimates for.1840. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle.? Srn,-In my last I glanced at one or two of the proofs of our not being in possession of all the advantages of tile British Constitution. But the leading proof of this-a proof that must deeply interest every Australian and every friend of his adopted country, is, that we ale governed in a manner, that does not even reong. nise as there laid down the represenatave prin aiple. This is the great consideration, one from which emanates "all that is good and worthy of preservation," in the British consti totion. What is the faot? We are generally ruled by a Governor, an entire stanger to our wants, and to all the other circumstances of our peculiar situation, that is, on his arrival here. He afterwards acquires a certain portion of knowlese in these respects, and how? why, by those veryisufferings whioh his ignorance ...

John Thomas Wilson. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

John Thomas Wilson It is an absolute fact, that the disappearance of John Thomas Wilson has oreated suech a con sation to the town of Sydney, and has been pro- ductive of 'such serious concern to many, that the attention of the mercantile circles has been so entirely engrossed with the transactions of this notorious bolter, that little or nothing at all has since been done in the way of' regular business. As to John Thomas' history, we can say but little, as we have not had the means of knowing his career in life. Our contemporary of the Gazette seems to have known him, alas I too well. Indeed so might we say of the ma- jority of those who have been duped by this magnificent swindler: they all know him of old, and should not have trusted him. But he com- menced life anew, as it were, when he came last to the Colony. He was well supported, had a flourishing and lucrative business and had every prospect of making an honest and inde- pendent fortune. In this land of speculation and cre...

English Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

iStltglt.J Itttcigettce. On Monday night, the 10th June, a daring attempt was made to force an entrance into Buckingham Palace.-It appeared that about 9 o'clock, the cen tinel on duty in that part of the garden immediately beneath the terrace of the wing heard a rustling among the shrubs and upon looking round he saw a man emerge from them, and immediately prepare to ascend the steps of the ter race. The centinel called out, when the man answered, " It Is all right ;" and the soldier, seeing that he was dressed as a labouring man, conjec tured that he was employed either in the garden or kitchen. The man then passed up the steps, and having reached the terrace, walked some paces towards a glass door which leads into the interior, when he was noticed by one of the ladies' maids who was sitting near the door, and who, upon seeing him, screamed out to the soldier to seize him, as he was a stranger, and from his singular and ferocious appearance she imagined that he meant harm. The sold...

Michael Angelo. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

Michael Angelo. M. ANGELO was born in 1474, and survived Clement VII. many years, he died at the age of ninety, at the head of the Florentine School. Sprung from a noble family, the ancient house of the Counts of Lanossa, he disco- vered even in his infancy his wonder- ful abilities in all the arts connected with drawing and design. After liv- ing some time under the great Lorenzo de Medicia he hurried to Rome to finish his education by the study of antiquity. The Roman Pontiff, Julius the II., whose projects were bound- less, was desirous of erecting himself a tomb that might vie in magnificence with the mausoleums of the ancients. M. Angelo was employed on some statues which were intended for its ornament, but the work remained un- finished. The literary histories of the time were full of many pleasant anec- dotes of what passed every day in which the impetuosity of the Pontiff was humorously opposed by the viva- city of the sculptor. One of the most beautiful statues of this arti...

History of the Church. PREFACE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 25 October 1839

History of the Church. PREFACE. FROM the earliest ages, the human mind has recognized, in the admirable order of the physical world, the mani fest evidences of a sublime plan traced by the finger of Providence. " The heavens and the earth relate the glory of the Creator;" such ought to have been, such, in fact, was, the first ex clamation of primitive faith; and thenceforth the researches of human science into the mysteries of nature, have furnished a continually progres sive commentary upon the hymn which arose from the cradle of the human race. But human intelligence has not been so readily able to understand, that the variety of events, of which the history of mankind is composed, conceal also a providential plan, which is gradually being accomplished, in opposition to all the causes of pertu bation that have arisen at every period from ignorance and the passions of men. It may be asserted, without fear of contradiction, that during forty ages, this idea was totally unknown to th...

HUNTER'S RIVER.-On the 8th instant, about three o'clock p.m., three bushrangers, armed and provided with horses, suddenly made their appear- ance before the door of the overseer's hut, at Mr. Dawson's station, at Garangalah, at the foot of Mount Royal, Hunter's River district. The overseer and a friend of Mr. Dawson's, Mr. Hugh Gordon, were in the hut at the time, and were instantly ordered, on pain of death, to walk, into the kitchen, where they were guarded by one of the fellows, while the other two plundered the hut and store of every thing they could carry off.
