Legislative Council. AUGUST 6TH. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839

Legislative Council,. AUGUST 6TH. Present-His Excellency the Governor, the Chief Jnstice, the Bishop, Sir Maurice O'Con nell. the Colonial Secretary, Mr. Jones, Mr. Blaxland, Mr. Lithgow, Mr. Berry, Mr. Mac Arthur, Capt. King, and Sir John Jamieson. A bill to amend the Savings' Bank Act was laid upon the table by his Excellency, but he afterwards withdrew it in consequence of its   not being perfect. The Bishop explained the cause of the delay by the Committee appointed to report on the Distillation Bill. His lordship stated, that some of the members had been unable to attend in consequence of illness, and he regretted to say, that the Collector of Customs was one of the number ; and it was almost impossible for the committee to proceed in the matter without his assistance. He however thought, that the Report would be ready on such day as the Council might now appoint. The Governor said that the second reading of the Distillation Bill had already been postponed several ...

European Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 9 August 1839

European Intelligence. The Honorable Charles Stourton, Lord Stourton's reldest son, had the misfortune to lose three boys from fever, within three months during the last year. The young est expressed his resignation and his willingness to die in very affecting' terms. He said he wished to die, that he might not offend God. THE LATE BISHOP OF NORWICH.- We are glad to see a monument about to be erected at Norwich to that illustrious champion of toleration, Henry Bathurst, the late Bishop of Norwich-a man who, for principle, gave up the hope of higher Church preferment. The statue is to be from Chantrey's chisel. Would that genius were never otherwise engaged, than in recording the triumphs of honor and con sistency. But the Arts too frequently rival the Muses in venal offerings to vice and political profligacy: MUNIFICENT BEQUEST.-Miss Catherine Dempsey, late of Kells, in the County Meath, Ireland, by her last will and testament, the probate of which bears date the 18th day of May 183...

Convert for the benefit of the Poor. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 August 1839

Concert for the benefit of the Poor. -We have great pleasure in calling the atten- tion, of our Readers to Dr. Reid's advertise- ment in on present number. The object of the Concert would be itself a sufficient argu- ment to induce an attendance ; but when Dr. Reid's first-rate talents, both as a composer and director of Concerts, ,which are not unknown in any part of Europe; are taken into considerati- on, we feel confident the old Court House will not be too large for the audience. We hope Dr. Reid will be induced to bring forward some of his own compositions on this occasion. There are some beautiful movements in his Or- atorio of Paradise Lost, which we think would surprise the ears of the sons of Australia.

Therry, Esq., given in his examination before the Coun- cil on the Courts of Requests Bill, now under consideration : Mr. Therry was introduced, and being re quested to inform the Council of his opinion, in respect to the necessity for extending the juris diction of the Court of Requests to the distant parts of the Colony, or for establishing separate Courts in the remote districts; he replied, that in complying with the desire of the Council, he would, with their permission, avail himself of extracts from a letter which, in July, 1838, he had addressed to the Colonial Secretary, repre senting his opinion of the utter inadequacy to the wants and circumstances of the Colony, of the existing act for regulating the Court of   Requests, and suggesting various and important changes, which, in his belief, were necessary, and most pressingly required; seeing, that not less than two-thirds of su...

Capture of the Bushrangers at the Wollombi. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 August 1839

Our Maitland correspondent has favoured us with the following particulars of the capture on the 7th instant of two daring bushrangers, who have kept the settlers in the neighbourhood of the Wollombi in fear for a long period. It was in great measure through the exertions   of Messrs. James, Thomas, and George Bridge that the robbers were taken.   "On Wednesday, the 7th instant, Mr. James Bridge received a message. from his brother   Thomas, that Mr. Wiseman's house had been plundered by three armed bushrangers. Mr. James Bridge and his brother George accom- panied by Mr. Meadurst, and two constables immiediately started in pursuit of the robbers. The party travelled about 11 miles on foot, and arrived at Mr. Thomas Bridges' house about 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The three brothers (Bridges) with Mr. Meadhurst     the two constables, and five of the blacks of that district--viz, Paddy, Governor, Gre-   &am...

To the Editor of the Austratasian. Chronicle. Parramatta, August 12, 1839. Sir,-I have observed in one of the   Sydney Journals, various attacks upon Dr. Ullathorne and other Catholics in this neighbourhood, on account of alleged pro- selytism here. I have no time or inclina- tion to inquire into the truth or falsehood of these allegations,being satisfied that the parties impeached know their duty suf- ficiently well, and have sufficiently ability to defend themselves: I simply mention them as a reason for troubling you with the following facts, which will shew what other parties have been doing here n the prose- lyltizing way.             A certain lady, who is ambitious of being considered a model of charity, has in the course of last week, among other pious works, disturbed the abode of certain poor Catholic females, by introducing tracts against popery among them. One of these tracts has f...

Cheap Bread. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 August 1839

Cheap Bread.               It will be observed by an advertisement in another part of our paper, that a meeting takes place this evening at the Mechanic's School of Arts, for the purpose of establishing an associ- ation to supply bread and flour at a reasonable price to its members, and to counteract the mo- nopoly which at present exists. As every house holder(except the monopolists) is interested in the success of the meeting,we have no doubt but that it will be numerously attended ;.and   we trust that the object in view will be at once carried into effect: for, with the supplies now in the Colony, we think that bread can be sup plied at a much cheaper rate than the prices at present demanded.

Miss Byrne. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 August 1839

Our respectable contemporary, the Sydney Gazette, led astray no doubt by his Reporter, is desirous that Miss Byrne should commence a criminal prosecution against Dr. Ullatthorne, for having excommunicated his lady love in the church of Parramatta. Unfortunately for our con- temporary, and still more for Miss Byrne, the latter was in too great a hurry to excommunicate herself, to leave it in the power of Dr. Ulla- thorne to pronounce the awful sentence upon her. Had the Editor of the Gazette taken the troublo to study the discipline of the church, which he is so fond of writing against he would not expose himself to be taxed with assuming impossibilities. But it so happens, that those who know the least about popery are the very persons who take upon themselves to oppose it. We intended to give a correct report of Dr. Ullathorne's Lecture, in this number, but we find we must defer it till our next.
