Dutch Prisons. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 October 1839
Dutch Prisons. THE prisons of Holland have for a century past formed an honourable ex ception to the general rule of such establishments. Seventy years ago, the excellent Howard found reason to commend the regulations according to which they were governed, and bestows a full measure of praise upon the classification observed and labour en forced in them, which stood out in strong contrast to the drunkenness, idleness, immorality, and disease, which pervaded the prisons of all the other states of Europe. Holland has still retained her supe riority in this respect. As soon as the Dutch were freed from French rule they proceeded to make improvements in the organization of their gaols, and in a few years enforced them through out the kingdom. Since their sepera lion from Belgium, they have added several valuable ameliorations, and have adopted a plan of proceeding likely to point out from time to time to the governing body any modifications which may tend to the perfection of their syst...

POETRY. "THE SOWER." MATT. XIII. I. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 October 1839
POETRY. " THE SOWER." MIATT. XIII. 1. I saw a pathway-trodden, hard, uneven Some scattered Seed from Sower's hand fell there; When, quickly came the gathering fowls of HIIeaven, And ticked it up-and left the way side bare. I saw a stony ground--and thin and light The covering soil; the scattered' Seed there sprang Rapidly up,-fierce burned the Sun and bright: Wanting deep earth, the scorched Crop withering hung. I saw a thorn? 9ground-there fell the Seed; In vain it vegetated-vain it tried .To rive above the soil,-the thorn and weed Choked its growth-and thus it sterile died ! 4 I saw a soil-genial, and deep, and good The scattered Seed there fell from Sower's hand; It quickened, rose, and ripened, lofty stood A glorious Harvest-covering all the Land I 1 I saw a man-his steps were careless slow, Entei by chance the Temple of the Lord; He gazed around-indifference on his brow Then sat and listened to the preached Word; Jesus he felt a moment heavenly, But Satan came, and robbed him o...

Our labour is the lighter, and our hopeseof success are the more sanguine, because we are well aware that to many. of those whom'. we have the honour to address, the objects of the Parent Society are already known; and that thre, areonot a few persons in this country whose charity has already extended itself to these objects by private collections.

istgtnal eoevs eouvre ence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. No. 8. " As we do not perceive in what manner the beauty of the body changes in old age, so, also our mind, we being unaware,. frequently is bent from the state of rectitude and from the form of religion, uuconbciously grows old and may be perverted."-ST.

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 October 1839
LOCAL. The inhabitants of the Hunter's River districts are placed in a position of very great inconvenience at this moment, in consequence of the Sheriff having put under prohibition the steamers Tamar and Sophia Jane, late the property of J. T. Wilson. These vessels, of course, no longer ply, and the communication between the capital and the districts in question is suspended. By the Maitland packet, it is understood that 174 persons have sailed! We beg, for &nbsp; the public convenience' sake, that the parties empowered to do so, will bring the sale of the said vessels to an issue as soon as may be, for the existing hindrance to business is really grievous. &nbsp; It strikes us forcibly, that in all cases it a very desirable that steam packets should be the property of companies, and not of individuals. By the latter arrangement the public convenience is always liable to impediment; whereas, if the packets were the property of a company, no stoppage could arise. We...
The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 October 1839
Sydney: TUESDAY, OCTOBER, 29, 1839. We have now arrived at the end of our first quarter, and may without any &nbsp; improper feeling congratulate our friends upon the success of the Aus tralasian Chronicle; a success which is unquestionably beyond precedent in the newspaper history of these colonies. At the time of our commencement, there were more than twenty journals published regularly in this and the neighbouring colonies, some of which had a very extensive circulation; and although we have scrupulously avoided the usual attempts to force a circula tion, yet at the end of three months we can count more subscribers than any journal in this part of the world, with the exception of two or three which, being almost exclusively commercial, are neccessarily read by all parties. Even these we have no doubt will very soon be behind us, as every day adds new names to our list. We have reason, therefore, to be grateful for the support which a liberal public has bestowed on us. It ...

Van Diemnen's Land. From our own Correspondent. HonAnT Town, OCT. 8, 1839 -I have re ceived up. to your 11th numberi and feel great pleasure at the success you have experienced. The improvement in the paper;is very evident. Just now I shall remark little on the state of our affairs in this Colony.
