New Publications. Important Information relative to New Zealand. By a Gentleman who has resided fourteen years at Hokianga. T. Brenuand, Sydney. 5s. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 November 1839
New Publications. &nbsp; &nbsp; Important Information relative to New Zea- &nbsp; land. By a Gentleman who has resided fourteen years at Hokianga. T. Brennand, Sydney, 5s. &nbsp; Those who take an interest in the coloniza- tion of New Zealand will find in the above named publication, comprised in a cheap form, &nbsp; the greater part of all the information that has been hitherto published respecting this inter- &nbsp; esting country; corroborated by the experience of a person who has resided for several years upon the spot. The writer describes with great minuteness, the soil, climate, and productions of the islands, and give an interesting picture of the aborigines, written in an amiable and philanthropic spirit. His description of the success of the Methodist missionaries is, how- ever, highly absurd; while he, perhaps wisely, says nothing at all of the Catholic mission, which has, already work for one hundred mis- sionaries. There i...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 November 1839
To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-You must have remarked, in a late publication of 'the Colonist newspaper, a letter drawing a comparison between the practice of religious duties, as performed by Bishop Pol- ding and Bishop Broughton, and which reflected but little credit on the christian charity of the latter. I am surprised that the writer of that letter should have so far betrayed his ignorance as to imagine that the Lord Bishop of Austra- lia, should for a moment be expected to enter the precincts of the Sydney goal-the gaol of a penal settlement !-to utter words' of consola- tion and divine truth to those poor wretches, whose lives had been forfeited to the just laws of their land ! What ! he that has wasted the midnight hour and wearied his spirit in his successful attempt to crush the system of general education, as proposed last session by the Governor-that obnoxious system which would have given a like proportion of learning to all denominations of christian...
Country News. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 29 November 1839
Country News. BRAIDWOOD, NOV. 23. - In my last I mentioned to you about the daring outrage and brutal conduct of three bushrangers near Lake Bathurst: on the report reaching Goulburn, the authorities there pressed some ticket- of-leave-men to go in pursuit of the villains, who came up with them, when one of the bushrangers, very deliberately, shot one of the-ticket-of- leave-men dead, and.walked away in triumph. It seems the villain chipped the muzzle of the pistol up to the poor man's .ace, when the ball passed through the brain. &nbsp; &nbsp; The famous Jingery Jack is again at large; he was forwarded from Braidwood to Goulburn, and when forwarded from thence to Berrima, he effected his escape from the constables. Such constables ought to be brought to strict account for their conduct, as it is quite certain that Jingery Jack and his associates possess ample means of bribing them. On Wednesday last we had a tre- mendous thunder-storm here ; it com- menced with a sh...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle Truly, Sir, there are strange sayings and doings in these our most enlightened days' The celebrated " Burton," writing of Italy, says, " The worst Christians of Italy are the Romans-the 'worst Romans are th Priests-the worst Priests are the Cardi nals, and the worst Cardinal is the Pope, who is generally an epicure, an infidel, a Lucianist." Cap this climax who can Y Yes, another will answer, "the. Spaniards are., the. must.. bigoted, superstitious anc cruel of .Christians, and the' descendants of the; Spaniards In SouthnAmerica, are-the basest and blackest' ot all." Such' is the current' phraseology of some who would pretend to rasik'amongst the polished and liberal writers of our, age;.,' Alas!I for Ick of thuth, these 'ready, penmen' have left' the beaten tr.ack of history 'and. fact.
