Mechanics School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

1Mechanics School of Arts. On Friday evening a lecture on Botany was delivered at this institution, by Dr. Nicholson. 'IThe lectnler commenced his discourse.by some general remarks on the classification of plants, and of their different kinds--as herbaceous, woody, annual, perennial, &c. The whole vegetable system 'is divided into two great orders : first, those plants which bear no flowers and are produced wlthout the aid of seeds, to which class by far the greater number belong; and, secondly, tiuose which bear flowers, arid are consequently seproduced by means of seed. Tile structure of non flowering plants is always cellular, the cells lcing of an hexaanual form, exceedingly minute, and defended by a substance generaly 'teionoinated the cellular itlane. The mode: in which these plants are procreated, is yet obscure and uncertain, although numerous conjectures have been hazarded on the subject. The well known family of ferns belong properly to this class,. butJheir intern...

LOCAL. SUDDEN DEATH:.-A. Compositor attached to the Herald Office, of the name of Armstrong, died suddenly, about 12 o'clock on -Tuesday night after quitting his employment. On' his arrival home, it was supposed he was in the act of searching for mate rials to obtain a light, when his land lady being alarmed by 'a heavy fall, and going up stairs to examine the cause, found Armstrong lying dead in his room: He' was buried on Wed nesday, being followed'to the grave by a numerous body of his brethren of the Press. Ma. DEANE's SOIRE,.--This en tertainment was rather thinly attended on Tuesday, on account of the weather, but it went off with more than 1the usual effect. Two songs by Mrs. Clancy were deservedly encored; 'a Fantasia of Herz, by Miss Deane, 'a Violoncello Solo, by Master E. Deane, and a Trio, by Messrs. Deane, were much applauded. These concerts continue to be given at the School of Arts every'Tuesday evening. MODEL OF: SYDNEY.-The speci men block of this work of art gives ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. No. 4. "Go teach eternal wisdom how to rule, Then sink into thyself, and be a fool." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

2o the Editor of the AustralaianC'hronic i ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. No. 4. "Go teach eternal wisdom how to rule, Then sink into thyself, and be a fool." POPr. Snm,-One of the most dangerous "wander ings" of the human mind, is, to over-rate its own powers, and to pass heedlessly over its in nate weakness and volatility. . Every age has furnished melancholy instances of errant spirits, who would fain pry into the unsearchable ways of "eternal wisdom," and then exhibit to the world the crude, incoherent notions of their be wildered imaginations, as the basis of the laws, of Providence in the formation and government of the universe. Such were the wild and erro neous views of the "Gnostics" who infested Christianity in the second and third centuries. They assumed this name, signifying in the Greek, a knowing and superiorly enlightened set of men. They pretended to to a very deep spiritual knowledge of the Scriptures-from them our modern illuminati of ...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 1, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

Sydney-: FRIDAY, NQVEMBER. 1, 1839. WE earnestly call the attention' of our :readers to the address of Mr. O'Cotinell to the Chartists, which we give in' our second page. Indepen dently of the circumstances for which it is immediately 'calculated, it con tains a mass of sound political wisdom, which is applicable to all times and places. Mr. O'Connell, after leading his own countrymen by peaceable agi tation to the attainment of their rights, steps forward to save England from the horrors of a revolution, by directing the energies of a deluded people into a proper channel. And this is the man who has been stigmatized as a revolutionist, and has had every oppro brious name heaped, upon him which the language contains. But history will preserve his name among those of the wise and good. WHILE no new question of import ance is engaging the public mind, we shall occupy. our readers a moment with a retrospective glance at a few facts which will serve to throw some light upon a question o...

EDUCATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

EDVCOATION QUEt TION, Lord StaulE'a smotion to revoke ;b .Odber in Council, appointing the. 'Edneation Board, has been defeated by a majnrity of Jire, Ia favour of ministers.. To the course of the dis. cussion, much more good sense, as well as mucI more nonsense, was elicited than had been mani'ested for many nighl ' in the House of Commons. Mr. Charles Boiler, in his pointed way, resolved all the Tory arguments into "'determined and unconquerable. hostility of the general education of the people..',Mr.J Gibson spoke admirably on the subject, reciting as a specimen of the.monck.eligious doggrel which pioos pretenders love to hear poor men's children chant at the top. of their voices, the following lines :-?

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. SIR,-- I perceive in the 24th number of the Chronicle, a letter, signed "Thomas Ewing," Teacher of the Presbyterian School, Bathurst, contradictory of some observations made by me in a former number. What may have been the motives that induced Mr. Thomas Ewing to submit his name, so incautiously to the eye of the public, I do not pretend to know. He is a school master, and as such, ought to aspire, if not to popularity, at least to a certain degree of notoriety ; that the attainment of the latter had some influence with him, the public can best judge. In an age when the supporters of truth are many and able, to maintain that pre-emi- nence amongst them to which vain ambition aims, a more than ordinary degree of intellec- tual powers is necessary; while, on the con- trary, falsehood acquires in its most distin- guished votaries, but rashness and assurance. Such being the case, I confess I do think that Mr. Thomas Ewing can still transmit h...

BUSHRANGERS. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle: Sir,-Two bushrangers, armed with double barrelled guns and pistols, and having a quantity of powder and ball, came to Doctor Gibson's station on the Fish River, on Wednesday last. They represented themselves as Goulburn con- stables, in search of bushrangers, and they inquired if that was Mr. M'Leay's station. Mr. Fry, the superintendent of Dr. Gibson, at once suspecting who his constables were, armed him- self and the overseer with a musket and a case of pistols, but they unfortunately were without powder. They at once "showed fight." One of the bushrangers crossed the river and made off; the other placed himself behind a tree, and, twice missed fire at Mr. Fry, who at length rushed upon the bushranger and captured him. On removing him to one of the huts, he offered to give the men a gold watch if they allowed him to go. This watch bears the initials of one of Mr. M'Leay's family. Mr. Fry and Dr. Gibson's sheep overseer conveyed the bush...

Mr. O'Connell's Address TO THE CHARTISTS OF BIRMINGHAM. "There is but one magic in politics, and that is, to be right." —JUNIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 1 November 1839

Mr. O'Connell's Address TO THE     CHARTISTS OF BIRMINGHAM. "There is but one magic in politics, and that is, to be right."—Junius. BROTHER REFORMERS,—There are many points of the greatest import ance upon which we agree. In truth upon the great principles of reform we scarcely differ at all. Our difference consists chiefly in this—that you deem one mode of action the most conducive to attain your objects ; and that I con sider another mode more likely to ob lain all that is desirable towards the amelioration of our political institu tions. But the difference in this re spect is very extensive; because I have convinced myself that your mode of action does not assist, but, on the contrary, powerfully impedes the pro gress of reform. I am convinced that, instead of advancing that cause, you are retarding it, by increasing the number of its enemies, diminishing the number of its friends, engender ing a spirit of suspicion of your mo tives, and creating a ratio...
