Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 5 November 1839
(From the P. P. Gazette of October 6.) For some weeks past, the safety of men's houses and property has been disturbed, by the cunning and daring acts of an apparently organised gang of house-breakers. Forcible entry was made into Mr. Brodie's shop, as related in our last, on Thursday night. &nbsp; On the night of the previous Thursday, Mr. Say's store had been broken into, and a large quantity of goods stolen; during the month, Mr. Gerrand's shop in Elizabeth-street, Mr. Sawtell's house in Queen-street, and various private dwellings have been entered, and frustrated attempts made to rob the inmates and owners. On Saturday evening, however, Mr. Wright, the chief constable, accompanied by two of his men, made a capture of the gang, with the exception of one man, who being a convict, cannot long es- cape detection. Four individuals, pri- soner of the crown, by name Camp- bell, Hand, Jones, and , were placed at the bar to undergo an exami- nation on suspicion of robbery, before...
To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. No. 6. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
To the Editor of the dustralasian Chronicle, No. 6. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. " Every man is naturally desirous of know ledge; but what does knowledge avail without the fear of God ? The highest and most useful lesson is, a true knowledge and contempt of ourself "-A. KEttels. Stn,--Had the diligent "searcher of Scrip. tures" kept this instructive lesson in view, when perusing the inspired pages, the world would not have witnessed so many delusions and so many innovations formed and fashioned upon the misinterpretation of the Holy Bible. The reveries of " Montanus," at the close of the second century, afford an instance of tile want of an "humble and docile" mind, in studyiug the word of God. This vain man of Masia, in the confines of Phrygia, aspired to a high repu. tation from his knowledge of the Bible. He pretended that the Holy Ghost inspired him iu expounding the Scriptures, and gave him some new revelations. His fullowors advanced that he was...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, NOV. 8, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
SSydney: FRIDAY, NOV. 8, 1839. IT is admitted on all hands.'that THE PRESS is a powerful instrument, for effectiog either good or evil, ac sording as it may be in the hands of the friends or the enemies of truth and virtue. Wihen wielded by the former, it is the best guardian of the rights of men; it is peculiarly the protector of the oppressed, as it is the fziend of all. As from the imperfea tions of nlan, crimes are daily being committed against society --while the free Press sees that society is protected, it also takes care that none shall be condemned or punished upon mere accusation or suspicion ; and in parti cular, it puts down any attempt that may be made to prepossess the minds of those who are entrusted with the lives and liberties of the accused, either.in their favour or against them. When the Press adopts an opposite system,-when it labours to fil the minds of judges and jurors with proe judice against any party, whose for tunes they are called upon'to decide, when it...
The Zephyr and the Flower. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
"From the Italtan ejf~Giorgio Aurello Bertdla. On fluttering wings light 'Zph;r moved Around a flower his best beloved; Swept fondly o'er her lovely breast, And with his downy plumes carress'd, Till her, soft leaves unclosed beneath "The.wooing of his bahny breath, :,And left him free to murmur o'er The fragrance she withheld before, "Unconscious that, from day to day, His'kisses stole her sweets away. At first that bland insidious breeze Approached her gently by degrees, Till bolder grown, with ruffian power, He, spoiler-like, assailed the.flower, ,Faded and stained her tender bloom, And rifled all her rich perfume, Scatteredher.leaflets one by one, In wanton sport, till all were gone. And what did next that treacherous thing ? He spread-his gay inconstant wing, Without remorse or further.heed, IAnd sought the blossomed grove.and m-ad; And there pursued his roving flight, Inu wanton quest of new L.elight. Like to the Zephyr here portrayed, Is 'pleasure's soft seducing power; And he...

Supreme Court, CRIMINAL SIDE, Tuesday, November 5th, 1839. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
Supreme Court, CRIMINAL SIDE, Tuesday, November 5th, 1839. ((Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) Peter Scallion was indicted for the wilful murder of Andrew Shandy, at Sutton Forest, on Wednesday, the 8th of May last; and six other men, named Jones alias Knight, Ellis, Carey, Sanders, Hickey and Barnes were in- dicted for aiding and abetting in the same, and also for the robbery of the dray driven by the deceased. From the evidence adduced, it appeared that the deceased was going up the country with a dray, loaded with clothing and other articles, accompanied by his wife, and the prisoner Sanders, who assisted him in driving the bul- looks. On arriving at a place, about two miles and a half on the other side of Berrima, &nbsp; Saunders, who was well acquainted with the place, having previously resided there, went to the house of one Biggs, a Tanner, where he laid a plan, in conjunction with the rest of the prisoners, for the robbery of the dray. Accord- ingly, on the evenin...

! trgfttna ýowtr es potti ettce. Contiutation of "A Subscriber's" remarks on the state of these Colonies, suggested by an examination of the Estimates for 1840. No. 5. T'o the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. SIa,-A part of my last letter was occupied by remarks on the despatch from the Home Government, announcing "that transportation to these Colonies had ceased ;" I shall now oon elude these observations. It is to be hoped, that ere this, proper repre sentations have been forwarded to the Home Secretary for the Colonies, who will, no doubt, consult Sir R. Bourke, Sir J. L. Mlitchell, and others, as to the accuracy of these statements, and be by them induced to chahge or modify the proposed system. However, should it be persevered in, it will be for the colonists of Australasia to make such representationsthrough some duly authorised organ as will prevent this country from being inundated by tickets of leave from Norfolk Island, or any other criminal dep6t, where the holders o...

We extract the following from a Devonport paper of the 29th of June. New Zealand appear to be becoming more popular every day-preparations on a very large scale are being made for the furtheorance of emigration to this proposed colony :-" The Direc tors gieo notice that the appropriation of Shares will take place on Monday, the 1st of July nest, and that no ap plications for shares can be received after twelve o'clock on that day. Per sons intendingto emigrate with the first Colony, in August, are advised that, in consequence of the very rapid sale of the lands, (more than half the 110,000 selected acres being already disposed of), immediate application will be necessary in order to secure town and country sections in the first and princi pal settlement.

MANIFESTO Addressed to the King of the Sandwich Islands, by Captain La Place, commanding the French frigate L'Artemise, in the name of his government. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
MANJFES'ItO Addressed to the King of the Sand wich islands, by Captain La Place, commanding the French frigate L'Artemise, in the name of his go vernment. His Majesty the King of the French having commanded me to come to Ho nolulu, in order to put an end, either by force or persuasion, to the ill-treat ment to which the French have been victims, at the Sandwich Islands, I hasten, first, to employ this last means as the most conformable to the politi cal, noble, and liberal system pursued by France against the powerless, hop ing thereby that I shall make the principal chiefs of these islands under stand how fatal the conduct which they pursue towards her will be to their interest, and perhaps cause dis asters to them and to their country, should thay be obstinate in their per severance. Misled by perfidious coun sellors, deceived by the excessive in dulgence which the French govern ment has extended towards them for several years, they are undoubtedly ignorant how potent it is, and t...
A Literary Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
Sa i iterarip ý!enttleman. We copy the following from a late number- of Nicholas Nickleby. The "' Literary Gentleman" is understood to be Mr. Moncrieff, a gentleman of great talents as an original writer, as lie is undoubtedly the most successful, as well as most prolific, adapter of plays from the works of others of the present day. " It was upon the whole a very distinguished party; for, indepen dently of the lesser theatrical lights who clustered on this occasion round Mr. Snittle Timberry, there was a literary gentleman present who had dramatised in his time two hundred and forty-seven novels as fast as they had come out--some of them faster than they had come out-and was a literary gentleman in consequence. "This gentleman sat on the left hand of Nicholas, to whom he was introduced by his friend the African Swallower, from the bottom of the table, with a high ealogium upon his fame and reputation. " I am happy to know a gentleman of such great distinction," said Nicho las, poli...
Mandy Andy. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
-iot-- - (From ,Bentley's .Miscellany.) *"'Though Andy's regular business was.' .whippor-iii,' yet he was liable-to be called on for the performance of various other duties; he sometimes attended at table when the number of guests required that all the subs should be put in requisition ; or rode on some distant errand for 'the misthress; ' or drove out the nurse and children on the jaunting car; and many were the mistakes, delays, or accidents, arising from Handy Andy's interference in such matters; but, as they were never serious, and generally laughable, they never cost him the loss of his place, or the squire's favour, who rather enjoyed Andy's blunders. The first time Andy was admitted into the mysteries of the dining-room, great was his wonder. The butler took him in to give him some previous in structions, and Andy was so lost in ad miration at the sight of the assembled glass and plate, that he stood with his mouth and eyes wide open, and scarcely heard a word that was said t...
