To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle, &nbsp; Sydney, November 7, 1839.

I beg to inform you, that it is within my own knowledge, that the Maitland has had, ever since she commenced running, two very fine boats; and also, since she became the pro perty of the General Steam Navigation Com pany, she has been furnished with two large whale-boats, in lieu of these, which are capable, in the event of accident, of safely landing be tween forty and fifty people.

Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 8 November 1839
Country News. (From a Correspondent.) GOULBURN.--From the 18th to the close of the last month, the weather was most unfavourable throughout the whole of the southern district. The strong blighting winds which continued for several days, added to tbe unna- tural heat at so early a period of the season have, it is greatly to be feared, caused so much injury, that the wheat crop is beyond recovery. In most in- stances, the barley and grasses which were most luxuriant, are completely dried up, and some settlers have al- ready commenced mowing, in order to make the most of that which has been partly destroyed. Since the first of the present month, there have been partial and heavy showers ; where these have fallen, they have been of great service in moistening the earth and restoring vegetation which was completely stopped. Should these showers continue, they will, it is ex- pected, cause the burnt up wheat to shoot out afresh and fill up. As far as regards grass the benefit from them is...

On Saturday the 20th instant, (July), the beautiful Frigate L' Arte mise, Captain LaPlace, left the waters of these Sandwich Isles; at 8 o'clock in the morning, her white sails were seen flowing from her dark yards, and in a few moments she was perceived under a "cloud of canvas, swelling before a propitious breeze; moving majestically onward through the deep sea, and " like a thing of life" re ceding from these shores in grandeur and magnificence. We have under stood, that her course is to the north ward, and that she will probably visit several ports on the coast of Alta Cali fornia, from whence she will proceed to Peru and Chill, and thence returnr. to France by the way .of Cape .Horn, At the completion of her voyage, she,; will 'have been absent about three years and a.half; during which time she will have visited various ports in India, China, Sumatra, Java, Muscat, Siam, Cochin, Manilla, Borneo, New Holland, Madras, South America" Van Diemen's Land, Islan...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle No. 7. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 12 November 1839
O tgttnat Qotv'l0polnrnctt tt. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle' No. 7. ON THE WANDERINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, IN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE. "The word of God is spirit and life, not to be estimated by the sense of man; not to be wrested to vain complacency ;. but to be re ceived with all hiumility and with greaf affec tion."-'THoso s &Klaetls. V Sta,-The pious "dKempis," who studied the sacred Scriptures with such assiduity, revb rence and spiritual advantage, teaches us how to draw the waters of life from its true fountain, "the word of God." The ways of God are not as the ways of men; nor is the "word of God" "to be estimated by the sense of man." How many have suffered shipwreck of the faith by striking on the rock of truth, when under the guidance only of "the sense of man"-when wresting the inspired words to "vain compla cency." Such was the fate of Paul, of Samo sata, Bishop of Antioch, about the year 262. Paul was much respected by Zencbia, the illus.. trious and f...

Sydney: TUESDAY, NOV. 12, 1889. The Mary Anne, whlich arrived on Sun. day, has brought English news to the 25th July. The Ministry had only a majority of two in the Commonson the Education Grant. The debate was most interesting, particulars ly the speech of Mr. Shiel. Earl Stanhope presented a petition from Oldham, on the 25th June, signed by three hundred thousand persons, praying for short Parliaments, Universal Suffrage, and Vote by Ballot. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland had issu ed a Proclamation. prohihitine Orange Pro cessions on the ist and 12th of July. A new Catholic Newspaper has been started in Belfast, entitled 'The Vindicator.' It is very ably conducted. A great Meeting of the British Catholics was.to have been held in London in July, to demonstrate the absurdity of the views entertained and propagated, respecting the social and religious principles of Catholics. The Government has been forced by the Tories to abandon the construction of Rail: ways in Ireland. The New S...

Country News. WOLLONGONG, NOV. 8.-We have had some delightful showers during the past week, and the crops are in a flourishing condition. A sub scription has been set on foot here, for the pur pose of building a more commodious place of worship for the Catholic community There is between six and seven hundred pounds already subscribed, and the greater portion of that sum is paid up. [We propose, as an example to the rest of the Colony, the zeal and public spirit of our friends at Wollongong. We should be proud to record an equally successful effort on the part of the Catholics of every other district. We have heard, in a passing manner, of the erection of about twenty chapels in different places, and of a case in which one gentleman subscribed £300, but we have not been favoured with the parti culars. Surely these things ought to be re ported by our country friends.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbs...

Supreme Court. CRIMINAL SIDE;-Thursday, November 7th. Before His Honor the Chief Justice. James Davis was placed at the bar, charged with the wilful murder of James Marr at Black Creek, on the 19th of July last, by shooting him in the left breast with a carbine, and Alexander Telford and Archibald Taylor were charged with being present, aiding, and abetting the execution of the same. From the evidence, it appeared that the deceased, who was a free man, had been engaged as a servant to Messrs. Scott, of Glendon, and was proceeding with three drays up the country to Patrick's Plains. On the night in question, the drays were attacked by three men (the prisoners), and the deceased having cried out to demand " who was there," was immediately fired at by one of them; the ball entered his left breast, and he expired in three hours afterwards. The pri- soners managed to hide themselves for some time in the mountains, but were at length tracked by the Aborigines, and apprehended by district ...
