AERONAUTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 18 October 1843
AElIONAUT1ICS -o (From a correspondent of the AtLenaum.) " Goooy Goosy Gander, ,WTho, wilt )'ou waunder r" On looking into an old book, by Wilkins, BJishop of Chester, " That the aloon may be a World," published in lO68, 1 find some remarks upon the probability of human beings finding their way into the lunar world, by means of wings. The author supposes that swallows, cuckoos, wild awans in India, and other birds of passuge, to say nothing of locusts, and pther epidemic insects, come from the moon, and return thither again; and as these fre. quently fly in flocks, " like wild geese,"' hI thinks that if enough of them to carry a man were liar. nessed to a car, a man might go up to the moon at the beginning of winter, and return in thu spring. Now is the time to revive the notion of worthy Bishlop Wilklns; catch geeso and tie them together -wild geese.

Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 18 October 1843
Port Phillip. [From the Port Phillip Gazette.] THE HARD TIMES.--One might imagine from the establishment of a government registry office, and the present outcry in behalf of the working classes for employment, that occupation was sought for, and an engagement would be eagerly grasped at by the suffering needy emigrant. In just a position to this conviction, we will but state a fact which the public may rely upon as correct. A settler, residing out a few miles from Melbourne endeavoured during the week to engage some fifteen or twenty men, for the purpose of collecting his crop of potatoes. The wages he offered were nine shillings a week to each man, and, if married, rations would be allowed for their wives. He applied in vain for labour, and sought the registry office for that purpose, but with- out effect. There is yet sufficient demand for labor &nbsp; in the district, and at remunerating wages. If the price of labor was one hundred per cent. dearer in the earlier stages o...
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SAND. IVICII ISLANDS. -o (From the Southern Australiau.) On approaching Hawaii, the lofty mountains of Rea and Kiranea are visible at the distance of sixty miles. It was our author's intention to visit the bay of Korokakea, the death scene of the celebrated Cook, but hbe was prevented by a strong southerly current sweeping along the laud. The vessel with difficulty made the bay of ICaroab, distant twelve or fourteen miles. The country, as seen on enteting it, looked beautiful, but it did not improve in estimation on landing. " We merely lay here," says Captain Brodie, " for an afternoon, and consequently I did not sea anything of the country ; so far as I could judge of tire flats along the shore, the soil was poor and sandy. Cocoanut, plantain, and banana, appeared to grow very well, however; but I was told, and I believe with truth, that the rich soil was bn the mountains, where coffee plantations are flourishing. The inhabitants seem to have lost every ...

THE RICH AND THE PoOR.--Canl as we may, and as we'certainly shall to the end of all things, it is much harder for the pool to be virtuous than the rich ; and the good that is in them,, shines the brighter for it. In many a noble mansion there lives a man, the best of husbands and of fathers, whose private worth in both capacities is justly lauded to the skies. But bring him here, upon this crowded deck; strip from his lair young wife her silken dress and jewels, unbind her braided hair; stamp early wrinkles on her brow ; pinch her pale cheek with care and much privation ; array her faded form in coarsely patched attire; let there be nothing but his love to set her forth or deck her out, and you shall put it to the proof indeed. So change his station in the world, that he shall see in those young things who climb about his knees, not records of his wealth and name, but little wrestlers with him for his daily bread, so many poachers on his scanty meal, so many units with whom to divid...

O'CONNELL'S MEMOIR OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
O'COJNNELL'S MEMOIR OF IRELAND. Tosn deprecatory tone in which our contemporary, the Herald, notices the reprint here of a " work' that has produced such a powerful sensation in Great Britain and on the Continents of Europe and Ame rica, is calculated to extend rather than contract tlhe sale of this publication. We are much mistaken if it will not be more generally toad than any book hitherto printed in Australia. It will be read byall who love Ireland, that land of " £n0g and sorrow," and by those who maybe under the ifloence of far different feeling,. The work may perhaps do mis. chicf, but we presume Mr. O'Connell would not be such a ' fool" as to publish anything that he could not support by " historical facts ;" and the publicas lion of blstorie truth is not, of its own nature, eel. oPlatod to produce mischief. We *' guess," a 1! Yankee that the Publisher has made a " capital irt in that there spao."
REVIEW.—ARDEN'S SYDNEY MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
REVIEW.-ARDEN'B SYDNEY MAGAZIN*E. Tns present number of as Arden's Magazine," even had its predecessor failed in stamping it as a periodical .of intrinsic value and usefulness, must rank high in the estimation of all who have any stake or interest in the resuscitation of our colonial literature, which, in common with every thing else at the present moment, is suffering from a long and gradual decline. The editor has displayed a degree of talent, discrimination, and intellectual research in the selection of the contents of his second number which we have rarely seen equalled in this colony, certainly ebver excelled. The article on the ma nagement and civilization of the Aborigines, asubject which is, or ought to be, of general interest, as having for Its object the Christianising these denizens of our woods and forests, is treated in that able and satisfactory manner which, indeed, seems almost peculiar to the author. The same remark will also apply to the valuable mass of colonial a...
EPISCOPAL VISITATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
EPISOOPAL VISITATIONS. Tue Archbishop returned to Sydney on Wednesday evening. His Grace administered the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday at Stonequarry. On Monday he proceeded to Burrogorang. The inbabitants of thins secluded valley assembled at early dawn, and in considerable numbers ascended the mountain range for the purpose of welcoming and accompany ing their Pastor. The next morning Mase was celebrated by the Archbishop in the neat Chapel which has been built. After the exhortation prayers were offered for the departed friends and relatives of the Congregation whose remains are .interred in the Cemetery. Seven took the " Total Abstinence Pledge;" a much larger number received the Holy Communion. The Archbishop expressed himself gratified by the evident proofs of spiritual improve ment, since the period of his last visit, amongst thle simple minded upright people of this lovely valley. The descent into it is at least 1500 feet, by a narrow path, in one part not more than s...
REPEAL OF THE LEGISLATIVE UNION. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MAY 15. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
II'PEAL OF THE LEOGSLATIVE UNION. -u (From the Freeman.) House or Cosmuos:, MAe 15, Mr. Reddington said he begged to put the question to the right honorable baronet opposite, of which he had given notice on Tuesday last. In answer to a question put by the noble lord, the member for cing's Lion (Lord Jocelyn), the right honorable gentleman said that it was the declaration made by the Sovereign, in 1834, of his determination to maintain inviolate that great bond of national strength-the legislative union. The honourable gentleman had said that was the declaration of the ministry of that day. The reply to the address from both houses contained in it matter which gave some consolation for the Irish nation, and which was not repeated now-namely, *' that his lMajesty was most anxious to remove all causes of just corn plaint, and to sanction every measure which would be likely to tend to the improvement of, Ireland." The question lie now wished to put was, whether he was aut!orised by her ...

PROGRESS OF REPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
PROGRESS OF REPEAL. .--o (From the Weekly Freeman, May 20.) We have just received our special report of the Repeal demonstration at tharleville, and cheerfully put aside othler matter to make room for its insertion. The numbers that congregated were greater than at any of the former meetings, but the same spirit per. vaded and guided the councils of all. The thousands whom Peel's threat gathered round the standard of Repeal on this occasion, were almost beyond com. putation, yet peace, and sobriety, and order, was universally prevalent. The period at which we received the report pre cludes the possibility of our making any comments on the proceedings, yet we cannot avoid congratu. lating the people of Ireland on the outward progress of the national cause, of which this meeting is but a symptom. By-peace, has the cause been brought to its present proud position-by our firm resolve not to be forced by intimidation to violate the law,'or countenance any outrage, we have already struck ...
LOYAL NATIONAL REPEAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 21 October 1843
LOYAL NATIONAL REPEAL ASSOCIATION. -o There was a very crowded meeting at the Corn Exchange last Monday, J. Ilaughton, Esq., in the chair. A letter enclosing £II was received from the operative bricklayers of Dubliu. It was read by Mr. O'Connell who said he was happy to tell the meeting that on the preceding day at the Curragh, ihe called on such of the assemblage as were tee totallers to hold up their hands, but for none others ,to atteeptp doing- so, and 35,000 hands were raised in a moment, and it was doubly cheering when they told him there was not a single base pledge.breaker amongst them (loud cheers). Mr. Thomas Steele, Head Pacificator of Ireland, here entered the meet. ing, and was received with great cheering. Two letters giving an account of a large Repeal meeting in Kerry end Tralee (written by Mr. Maurice O'Connell, M.P., the Inspector General of Munster) were next read amidst loud cheers. They were fol lowed byhletters from two clergy men in the county Sligo. SUrFFaRNO...
