LOCAL. GnaNo CONCEnT.-We beg to remind our readers, that Monsieur Gautrot's Concert takes place to-morrow, at the Royal Hotel. ohe programme is particularly attractive. SEnRovs ACCIDEN .-As a cabriolet belong ing to gentleman in Sydney, was coming down Hunter.street, on Sunday afternoon, about six o'clock, the horse took fright and ran down the street at a furious rate. One of the ladies being frightened made a spring to get out ; as she got over the s'de, her gown caught some part of the cab, and she fell violently on the back of her head. She was carried insensible to the nearest surgeon. We are sorry to state that there are very little hopes entertained for her life. The horse stopped shortly afterwards. If the young lady had kept her seat, she would have been perfectly safe. The rest, (two gen tlemen, a lady and child) suffered no harm, having kept their seats. We since understand that the lady is dead. SYTNEY BANK.-The success of this under taking, shews in the most decided man...
CHARACTERS—No. I. The Old Boys. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 12 November 1839
CHARACT!ERS-No. I. .The Old Boys." MANY of our readers have heard of that facetious and remarkable net of individuals, who, under the imposing title of " Old Boys," render them selves remarkable for the peculiarly funny pranks which they are continu ally playing off, to the infinite delight and amusement of themselves and the public. It was once erroneously sup posed that this highly interesting class of individuals were to be met with only in the precincts of the " Modern Babylon"--where, like the immortal " Pickwick" and his no less illustrious followers, they have attained a most enviable degree of fame and popula rity. With the bar-maids of that vast metropolis, they are all-prevailing, and in the " slips" of the upper boxes of every theatre; they make* them selves at once the delight and orna ment of the select companies by which they are generally surrounded. Some of these choice spirits, we feel proud to say, are to be met with in Australia,. and in every respect, they are wo...

POETRY. LINES WRITTEN IN AN ALBUM. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 12 November 1839
\ POEThT.'. LINES WRITTEN IN AN ALBUM. WnAT `is gn Album ? 'Tis like a shore, Whereo'we find, as we may, oa the wave wa'sh'd sand, When liush'd for a while is the ocean's roar, The geins it has left on the lonely strand: So the Albutm's faithful pages keep Full maniy a gem from oblivion's deep. What is an Album ? 'Tis as the scene, Where each steps on, and departs in turn, 'Where the" grave has passed, and the gay has been, And the sage has left us some truth to learn; Where aged add young have appeared in their day, Sustained their part, and so passed away. What is an Album ? A garden fair, With'flowers of varied form and worth, Some of sober hue, some of beauty rare, " Some of sweetest scent that perfumes the earth; And here may we pleasantly pass the hour, And regale, like the bee on the fragrant flower. What is an Album ? Alas I it may be Like the turf where the blossom expands o'er the grave; Where the faithful floweret entwined we see With the trophies and tombs'of the loved a...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, NOV. 15, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 15 November 1839
Sydney: -FRIDAY, NOV. 15, 1839. We give in our columns of to. day such extracts front the English journals as seem to possess most interest. It has been unaccountably stated, in the Syd ney Journals, that the Ministerial Education Bill had been introduced into the House of Lords, and lost by a majority of 111. This is a mistake. The measure was introduced into the Commons in the form of a money grant, to be under the control of the Privy Council. With bills of this sort the Lords have nothing to do. 'the proceedings -in the Lords had reference solely to a resolution moved by the Archbishop of Canterbury, that the House should address the Queen, praying her Majesty to. rescind the grant of the Commons. -This her Majesty, -in her reply of- the 1lh July, refused to do; so that the ministerial measure is not lost, and their lordships have received something tantamount to a royal reprimand. The report of the debate *will be read with great interest. We have reserved the admirable speech ...
