'HlIE CIHRONICLE. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1843. " Ie just and fear not: Let allghe ends thou alnt'st at be thy eountry'a, Tby God's, and truth's." .TREATMENT OF " ABORIGINES" IlY VAItIOUS COLONIZINGO NATIONS. Wuo has not heard or read of the " cruelties" practised by the '' Spanish" Colonists on the " Abo. rigines" of South America I The "tortures" inflicted on the " Indians" to compel them to work in the mines of Mexico and Peru, are as well known as the produce of these mines. Yet the praiseworthy and successful efforts made to put a stop to these cruelties, and to improve the moral and physical condition of this numerous and powerful race, ate but little known and less noticed. When the Court of Spain was duly informed of .the nuhumau conduct pursued by some of her avaricious colonists in the New World, effectual tr.easureswere taken to check thesomerciless colonisas in their work of destrLction, and to protect the " Indian" race from being immolated on the altar of " Mammon" by t...

English Extracts. DESTRUCTION OF THE GREENWICH PIER. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 18 October 1843
-o DESTRUCTION OF TIlE OREENWVICH PI EI'. -o-s (Ftom the British Queen.) On Tuesday morning, between nine and ten o'clock, the inhabitants in the vicinity of the stone pier at Greenwich were alarmed by a loud report, like tihe explosion of a piece of artillery, succeeded, within a few seconds, by the announcement that the pier was falling. At the time several people were on tile pier, as it gave way, and others were on a barge which is moored in front, who were in a state of consternation. From the best examination that could be made, the damage has extended itself to at least three.fifths of tie entire length, which is 330 feet, and it in in depth, from the bottom of the piles, 80 feet. The crash which created the alarm occurred through the sprioging of one of the immense piles which are in front of tile pier, and support the brick. work and masonry, to which they are clasped by bars of iron let into the stone work. A previous breaking away of a part of the pier took place at four ...

Original Correspondence. WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 18 October 1843
WVOLLO MIr. MNe. Entron--To pass a dull hour, and to make it good for trade, I consume a little of the midnight oil in the perusal of your patriotic journal. Onu particular paragraph attracted my attention the other evening, which related to reducing the number of paid magistrates. In the list I discovered the name of a gentleman whom I sincerely respect, it was that of Francis Allman, Esq., late magistrate at Campbelltown. I can vouch for the respect paid to this gentlemen while in H.1M1.'s 48:h regiment, exclusive of the very high regard entertained for hint by the inhabi. rants of Campbelltown, where he resided nearly seven years. See how honorably he acquitted him. self in the magisterial chair by the testimonial of re spect presented to him by a voluntary subscription of nearly two hundred pounds, and the general regret entertained at his departure. 1 merely mentiou the above to show what a con. trast there is between the above district and the love of the inhabitants towards t...
Irish Intelligence. REPEAL DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 18 October 1843
IEPEAL DINNEIL At a dinner which was given to Daniel O'Connell, Esq, M.P., at the Commercial Inon, Mallow, County of Cork, on the litb of Junoe, the honorable and learned gentleroan rose and was received with most tremendous bursts of applause, which were repeated at least a dozen times. After a lapse of some mi nutes, when order had been restored, the learned gentleman proceeded to speak as follows a-The time is come when we must be doing. Gentlemen, you may soon learn the alternative to live as slaves or to die as freemen (hear, and tremendous cries of - we'll die freemen," mingled with cheers). No, you will not be freemen if you be not perfectly in the right, and your enemies in the wrong (cries of e' so they are"). I think I perceive a fixed dispo sition on the part of some of our Saxon traducers to put us to the test. The efforts already made by thern have been most abortive and ridiculous. In the amidst of peace and tranquility they are covering over our land with tloops. Yes,...

THE MOUSTACHE. - A gentleman never affects military air or costume if he is not a military man, and even then avoids professional rigidity and swagger as much as possible; he never sports spurs or a riding whip, except when he is upon horseback, contrary to the rule observed by his antagonist, the snob, who always sports spurs and riding whip, hut who never mounts higher than a threepenny stride on a Hampstead donkey. Nor does a gentleman ever wear a moustache, unless he belong to one of the regiments of Hussara, or the Household Cavalry, who are alone ordered to display that ornamental exuberance. Foreigners, military or non-military, are recognised as wearing hair on tihe upper lip with propriety, as it is the custom of their country ; but no gentleman here thinks of such a thing, any more than he would think of sporting the uniform of the l0th rl useass. l'here is an affectation among the vulgar clever of wearing the moustache, which they clip and cat a la Vandyjke. This is usefu...
