The Church Discipline Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 5 November 1839

rb?s QDturb TIDscipliun fill. In the recent discussion of this measure in the House of Lords, the Bishop of Exeter thus described, its character: What would be the state of the Chaurclj sup. posing this bill were to pass? Its legilative power was already extinct, because the Church. was never permitted to meet for the purposes of legislation; all legislation was carried on by the state. Now,. whatever evils might re. sult from the meeting of a convocation, or of a synod, he must say that the'evils resulting from the meetings of the state; wheni he saw what laws were proposed to be enacted, were un. questionably much greater. The passing of. the bill would be the extinction of, as far as possible for man to extinguish, the true epasco. pal character of the Church of England; the Church would be stripped at once of its judi. cial power, practically of its legislative cha racter, and mainly of its executive. If a mea. asure of this nature were supposed to be ap. plied to the Church of ...

Sandwich Islands. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 5 November 1839

santubte Wslants. We have been favoured with the following extracts. from a letter from the Rev. Robert A. Walsh, Apostolic Missionary in the Sandwich Islands, the contents of which cannot fail to be highly gratifying to our readers. It is addressed to a gentleman in Sydney, and dated Oahu Honolulu, Sept. 17th, 1839. You will be glad to hear that liberty of con science has been granted by the sovereign of these islands throughout all his dominions. Captain Laplace, commanding the French fri gate L'Artemise, with whom you became acquainted in Sydney, has obtained, in the name of the King of the French, all that he demanded from this government. The advisers of his Hawaiian Majesty, cer tain sectarian missionaries, thought it more desirable to accede to the demand of Captain Laplace, than to endanger themselves and their beautiful edifices. In a letter addressed by the captain- to the consul of the United States, offering an asylum on board his ship to all citizens of that country, in...

ý)ttftEtCa. CLEAN WOOL -Our wool-growers seem not to be aware of the advantage of having their wool which is intended for market, well washed. We called in at Mr. Reed's warehouse a dayor two since, to take a look at a lot of wool on which we had heard sevesal enconiums passedt. The lothad been purchased of Mr. Jesse Ken. worthy, of East Bethlehem township, and for neatness and cleanness we have never seen it excelled. As a compensation for his care in the preparation of his wool for market, Mr. KLenworthy received a premium of five cents per pound; and well was the premium desery ed. Did all our wool-growers take the same care and pride ie preparing their wool for sale, we have no doubt the proceeds of this single article of export from Washington county, would amount to many thousand dollars above the present income.-Washington (Pa.)

BRITISH GUIANA. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 5 November 1839

BRITISH GUI A NA. The Right Rev.. Dr. Clancy returned to Georgetown a few days ago, after an absence of one month, spent in the interior of British Guiana amongst the aboriginal tribes, having devoted his time to preachr ing and the administration of the sacra ments of the Roman Catholic Church, to such as sought his ministry He visited most of the Caribisce, Warrow, Accawai, Chayma, and Spanish Indian settlements on the coasts and in the creeks. This has been the first episcopal visitation ever made amongst the neglected children of nature in those sickly, vast, and distant tracts on this part of the continent of South America. His visit to Morocco mission has been pros ductive of great moral results, inasmuch as by his presence among the settlers he in duced several couples who were hitherto living in a sinful state of concubinage to receive the nuptial benediction, and do public penance for the scandals of their past lives. He married, amongst others, four individuals, in presenc...

" But they knew not the way; which is thy word, and'they take themselves to be high and bright like the s'ars; anti so they are fallen down to the earth, and their foolish heart is darkened." . ST.

Stn,-Such is the opinion of the profound St. Augustine, of those who were constantly "searching the Scriptures" and forming doc trines by the delusive guide of their own judg. ment, unaided by the spirit of wisdom that Christ promised to dwell in his church " to the consummation of ages." You have already seen some of the extravagant and impious doctrines that Simon Magus, Cerinthus, and the Gnostics pretended to draw from the Holy Bible. Cerdo, Mariane, Montanus, Hermogenes, and others, remodelled and enlarged these wicked opinions, and all claimed Scripture in support of their errors.

Port Macquarie. STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH SYDNEY.— [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 5 November 1839

PORT MACQUARIE STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH SYDNEY.- A numerous and respectable meeting was held on the 1st instant, at the office of Major Innes, for the purpose of taking into considera- tion the necessity of making provision for the improvement of the coasting trade between this port and Sydney, by means of steam com- munication; Major Innes in the chair. Major Innes, in commencing the proceedings, con- gratulated the magistrates and gentlemen whom he had the pleasure to see assembled, on the success of the efforts made, during Mr. Gray's jurisdiction, by the landholders and merchants, whereby Port Macquarie was rejoicing in the brightest prospects, and the highest state of prosperity. He, at the sanme time, had to regret that the enterprising activity of the settlers had been lately most seriously cramped by the cessation of prompt and regular com- munication with Sydney. He would therefore request their earnest attention to a letter which he had received from Mr. Young, the agent, ...

Considering his im patient character, it is a wonder that lie did not begin war at once, when Hafiz Pacha gave hint so fair an opportunity. His implicit obedience to his father, without whose consent he does nothing, has alone withheld him from attacking the Turks; but he has made every arrangement to put the Turkish army in a desperate situation, in caseof a defeat. While with his main force lie faces the enemy near Alleppo, a corps is placed on the right wing of the Turks, and another frons the south threatens their left, so that being surrounded on three sides, the Turkish a...

John William Trigg, late chief officer of the Sesostris, was placed at the bar, charged with the wilful murder of Thomas Flynn, a seaman on board that vessel. The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was defended by Mr. Hurstler, a professional gentleman recently arrived in the Colony. From the evidence adduced on both sides it appeared, that on the night in question, the deceased had come aft to the main hatch first accompanied by two of his shipmates, and afterwards alone, for the pur pose, it was believed, of endeavouring to force it open, in order to procure some wine of the captain's which was stowed below. Mr. Trigg observing him, came up and ordered him to go forward, which he refused to do, making use, at the same t...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, NOV. 5, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 5 November 1839

Sydney: TUESDAY, NOV. 5, 1839. THE social and political state of the Colony of New South Wales presents, at this moment, an aspect (in spite of our commercial prosperity) discreditable, alike to the government and to the people. We have, on the one hand, daily accounts of robberies, by organized gangs of bushrangers; we hear of gaol breaking, of cattle spearing, horse-stealing, stopping the mail, and a thousand other acts, which prove the existence of a state of social disorganization to a very considerable extent; and the ex isting government, though as irre sponsible to the people as that of the Russian autocrat, has not even the usual merit of despotic governments, that of promptitude and decision in its movements. Would it be believed in any other part of the world, that at this moment, and under the eye of a British Gover nor, of whose justice and humanity no one has ever doubted,-would it be credited that a wholesale system of murder is continually going on un checked and unpu...

Country News. MAITLAND.-We have had some fine refreshing showers this week, and this part of the country continues to look well. Not a single complaint but that of the grub and caterpillar, which certainly are injurious to the tobacco plant, and more particularly to the young maize. The wheat is too far advanced, and above their devour- ing powers. GOULBOURN.--It is not true, as sta- ted in a late Monitor, that Mr. Mur- ray, the Magistrate, and Mr. O'Con- nell, a relative of the Commander of the Forces, were robbed by bush-ran- gers near Goulbourn. Mr. Murray is not exactly the person tamely to sub- mit to anything of that kind from cow- ardly and mean fellows. The Monitor's correspondent has been wholly misin- formed on this subject; the above gen- tlemen did not even meet any bush- rangers. On Sunday night, the 27th inst., five men broke out of the Quean- beyan Lock-up, one of those men was charged with murder, who had been at large about two years--the others were charged with ro...
