Commercial Information. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 August 1839

Commercial Information.         The Ann Gales is expected to sail for Lon- don, with Colonial produce, on Thursday next. The brig Dorset is at the Liverpool wharf, taking in cargo for South Australia. She is nearly new, and said to be an excellent sailer. She was purchased by Messrs. V.& E. Solo- mon at South Australia, and they intend to run her, we believe, as a Packet between Sydney   and that Province. The Aliquis, which sailed from Sydney in May last for Calcutta, has been wrecked in Torres' Straits. We are however happy to learn, that the master and crew were saved, and conveyed to Calcutta in the ship Argyle. The brig Speculator has, we understand,     been purchased by Captain Lister ; and it is his intention, we have heard, to send her to India, calling on the way at Port Philip and South Australia .   By the arrival of the Gilmore, a large supply of the necessari...

James Hardy Vaux. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 August 1839

During the last forty years it appear that this individual has been passing through scenes of difficulty, both in this Colony and in England, and now at the age of 60 he commits an offence which again subjects him to punishment. The many years of suffering, which he must have indured, ought, we think, at his advanced age; to.have, induced him.to appreciate the value of   freedom;- -but it seems, that he was determined to add a new offence to the, list which he enu. merates in is his memoirs. The following is copied from the Sydiney Gazette. of Saturday last: 9 In consequence:ofthe interest creaTed the trial of this iadividual we have beeoo at the paithi to inake enqui?iea coucerning liin and give the follown lnin' san o6tlitýo'idf' his career:' James Hardy Vahx was- first transported td'this colony •for seven?years during, the;: time of Governor King.

Port Philip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

Port Philip. SHEEP.-It appears by the following extract from the Port Philip Patriot that the sheep which were sold by auction at Melbourne by order of the executors of the late Mr. Howey, realized good prices :- " These sheep sold very high, in defiance of the weather. Prime ewes brought 43s. each; the whole of the flock averaged from 32s. to 33s. per head, and the right of station was bought for £95. Mr. Brown (late Brown and Hutton) was the largest buyer. It will also be seen by an extract from the Port Philip Gazette, that every description of stock is in demand there at good prices: " The great influx of capitalists within the last few weeks, has raised the price of stock, particularly horses, to an unprecedented degree. Sheep have been sold at £1 15s and £2 per head, horned cattle from £10 to £12, and the commonest hacks realize from £50 to £70, brood mares never fetch less than from £100 to £120 ; the right of the late Mr. Howey's station was bought on Tuesday last for £124. ...

Does not the dying soldier feel Such Christian' love, such pious zeal ? Yes ! far more than divines can preach, Do the acts of that Sister of Charity teach; 'HIowvperfect'must be the heaven above That'is worshipped here with suchholy love !

Portland Bay. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

Portland Bay. Portland Bay was made in our last number the subject of a slight paragraph, with a view of rendering a service to newly-arrived emi- grants, by directing their steps to the healthy and fertile pastures in which the sutrrounding country abounds. Mr. Henty, who has been established there for nearly five years, has formed a whaling station, a farm, which by the abundance of its produce, testifies to the fer- tility of the soil, and cattle and sheep stations in the immediate neighbourhood of the port. Several mercantile houses in Van Diemen's Land send their whaling vessels every sea- son, and have never yet experience anything but good success; it is evident therefore that Portland Bay is an admirable field for future colonists. Reports are prevalent that its har- bour is unsafe - we have Major Mitchell's testi- mony to their falsity. This author particularly remarks that the water in the harbour is al- ways smooth enough to admit of the landing of boats; in corroboration...

Sir Richard Bourke's Statue. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 16 August 1839

Sir Richard Bourke's Statue. When we see a community fully sensible of the benefits that have been conferred upon it, and sincerely thankful to the individual who has been principally instrumental in promoting its prosperity, we cannot but be actuated by feelings of respect and admiration. In the annals of this colony there does not exist a brighter name-a name connected with more brilliant and momentous associations than that of our late talented and illustrious ruler. No paltry acts of oppression--no petty grievances -no tyrannizing projects-no imbecile manoe vres tarnish the bright period of his adminis tration. Blessed with abilities of the most ex alted description, and possessed of honesty and impartiality sufficient to prevent those abilities from being misapplied, he has rendered himself the means of benefitting us in no ordinary de gree, and thereby heaping upon us a debt of gratitude which it will acquire the continued praise and respect of future ages to repay. The people...
