EDUCATION. Great Catholic Meeting IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 26 November 1839
ED"UCATION. Great Catholic iVieeting IN LONDON. A Meeting of those professing the Catholiic religion was summodied by a Ih ertisement, on the 15th July, at the Freemasons' Hall, for the purpose of espr'essing the views of that body with reg.,rd tio national education. This was the first public Catholie meetii;g of the kind which has been convened in th1iS metropolis for some centuries ; anti the occasion naturally excited an extraordinary degree af interest. The hall was crowde:l with a highly respec table audience long before the hour ap pointed for taking the chair. The galleries and a reserved space under the platform were filled with an assem blage of ladies, such as we scarcely ever remember seeing at a tmeeting, for the elegance of their attire and the beauty of their appearance. Admi rable regulations had been adopted for the preservation of order, by admitting none who !.ad not tickets, and the ob ject of the meeting being to express 'he views of the Catholics alone, the arr...
The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, NOV. 26, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 26 November 1839
-_ _ _. - - - -.--. Sydney: TUESDAY, NOV. 20, rS39. The 11ary has brought English in telligence to the 6th August. On the kth, Mr. Labouchere moved the third reading of the New SoutlIVales Hill, which is merely a renewal of the bill of 1827. Mr. C. Buller concurred with the Government in the expediency of re newing the bill from year to year, but thought that it would be wiser to give the people some chance at no distant period of exercising that control on the aflftirs of Government, without which there could be no rational free dom. He spoke at length upon the anomaly of taxing a people to an un h-eard of extent without representation. He intpressed upon the Government, the necessity of encouraging free emi gration; and thought that floe years, (how modest an advocate !) would place these Colonies in the condition of go. verning themselves. Mr. Labouchore agreed, that there was much disadvantage in requiring Englishmen to live under a Govern inent, over which they had no control; ...
Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 26 November 1839
Country News. A correspondent from Bathurst writes us that une personue from Par ramatta, without any commission what ever, and without having rendered any service to the state, has taken up resi dence in Government House, to the dreadful annoyance of a worthy officer and magistrate, who is thereby pre vented from punishing public offenders, to the great scandal of the community. This is certainly not the country where such things should be tolerated ; we trust the remedy will be applied, and that it will not be necessary for us to publish our correspondent's letter, which speaks daggers. We are informed that the two men who escaped from Goulburn Gaol, have been retaken by a detachment of the mounted Police, under the com mand of ensign Hilliard : the bush rangers were well mounted and armed.
Protests in Council. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 November 1839
P'rotests in Councill NO. I. I protest against the proposed disburse ments from theColonial 'Ireasury ofthe sum of £104,353 10. 8d. for defraying the ex penses, of. the Police and Goal departments. ,First-On the general ground that the en. tire proposed disbursements are excessive, in reg?ard to the revenue, while the revenue itsell is larger than what ought to be ex= tracted from the Colonists in respect both to their numbers and their means; which latter, so far from being likely to improve, it is to be expected, will, under the intended discontinuance of the private assignment of convicts, considerably diminish. Second--Because, as und4i? the proposed discontinuance of the assignment of con. victs to private service, the principle advan tage derived to the colonists from transpor tation will he utterly withdrawn from them, and which withdrawal can be countervailed by no kind of equivalent, while, as admitted by Sir George Grey, Baronet, Under Se eretary of State; iri his letter, ...

?bse W1looTl StatItt.' '' LaEDs.-We have no improvement to report in the woollen cloth trade this' week, every thing remainling as near as possible .in the same state as our.last report, both with respect to prices and demand. 'The corntry operatsites now begin to be' short of employment, ?nd we lodk forward with apprehension-to a long .win. ter, with little employment for the worknton, and bread at a starvation price. BRADFonD.--The wool market is tolerably firm. The demand is as large as it has been lately,annd the prices, if not higher, are tena. ciously held to. The demand for, yarns is not quite so good as for the last week or so. Prices have, how ever, been maintalned, and We think that the production at present is quite eijtdl 'to the call.

The Court H.ouse. S ASKE?KrCH A few evenings since, observing lights in:the Court-house, I entered to beguile a moment by observing 'the pfboceedings. . The room was irowded to excess-caddies were 'burning in different parts of the place, and at the bar stood seven unfortunate individuals listening to the Judge summing up the evidence against them, in a charge. of niurder and robbery attended with the most painful cruelty. 'The scene at once struck me as .being particularly solemni an'd impressive. Scarcely a sound escaped from any of the large concour4e;assembled together; and the dense mass of heads around me' were all turned in attentive silence to the'Judge, or with 'eager curiosity towards the unhappy culprits whose fate was about to be decided. There was a sblemn stillness in the room which was but at. intervals broken by'a short'nii rimur that indi. cated the intense interest felt by thme lehiolders. The evidence was of unusual length, but so momentous was the' occasion, and ...

.EReport :of the Committee -Ott police anlr Qaois. '(CONTINUED .FRIOM OUR LAST NUMDBER.) .BORDER POLICE. Your Committee took advantage of the presence of such of the Commis sioners of Crown Lands beyond the boundaries of location, as happened to be in Sydney during the progress of their enquiry, and they beg to refer to the evidence given by Mr. Mayne, MVr. Gisborne, and Mr. Cosby. Your Committee trust that considerable ad vantages will be obtained by the estab lishment of the border police, in pre venting outrage' and repressing crime, on the part of the white population and the 'aborigines. The establishment can as yet be considered as experimental, and it would therefore be premature for your Committee to express any opinion as to the working of the system,, until it shall have been longer in operation. From all the information, however, which your Committee have obtained, they are decidedly of opinion that it is essentially necessary, as establish. ments extend in the interior, ...

Slow, silent steals the subtle wave of time, Wilth unregitrdod yet resistless force; Sweeps bff the fairest trophies in their prime, Nor power of. man can check or change its course. IT. The giant tower that rears its lofty brow, And frowins defiance on the raving storm; The la;pse of ruthless time will'soon lay low, Nor leave a relic of its mighty form. I I u it. And when deep darkness shades the slumbering world, And nature's self is hushed to soft repose- "When night her starry streamer has unfurled, And the pale moon her rays of silver throws. 'V. At that blest hour methinks each mournful sprite 'Of ruthless time's relentless hand complains; If aug.ht could charm the dull-cold ear of night, :Twould be to -list such soft -such pensive strains.
