The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, DEC. 3, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 December 1839
Sydney: TUESDAY, DEC. 3, IS39. THERE are those who have thought that the remarks which in the course of editorial duty we have made on the Logislative Council were too stringent and severo. We deem it right to ob serve, that our remarks are not upon the individuals comprising that august asso iihly in their private capachies, but *in the public character which a seat in .it gives as a matter of course. And we would farther remark, that the discrepancy we find between the public and private characters of those individuals is so great, that were other proof wanting of the inefficiency of the present Council to represent the Colony, we would at once. refer to that discrepapcy, and show that whatever may be the amiable, the good disposi tion of the individuals, a seat in the Council by some process which it is not for us to explain, alters it to bad ness and to mischief. We have before uss.tbe Report of the Committee on Immigration; it is signed by one who ranks as a Christian bishop. W...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 3 December 1839
LOCAL. MELANCHOLY SUICIDE.-It is sel- dom our painful task to relate a suicide of a more affecting nature than the following. A young girl, named Mary'Turner, aged 15 years, residing in Gloucester-street with her aunt, Mrs. Thomson,who formerly kept the Coach & Horses, Cumberland-street, came to her death under the following circumstances. She had for some time past been attached to a young man, and either, from motives of jealousy, or grief, on account of his being about to leave this colony for New Zealand, she had become very much depressed in spirits. On Fri- day evening, she came to the house of Mrs. Thomas (her sister-in-law), and asked if the young man was in? Mrs. Williams answered in the negative, and observed that her eyes were very red as if she had been recently crying, and altogether her manner seemed de- jected and broken-hearted. She then put into Mrs. Thomas's hand a parcel containing a silk handkerchief, a gold locket with hair in it, and a letter, desiring ...
Port Phillip. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 December 1839
Port Phillip. We have received the folloning statement, simply as it is here related, from an individual who represented himself as the party aggrieved. We publish it with a view, not to obtain the man redress, which, we believe, lies only at tire expense of a civil action, but to induce tihe colonial authorities to take sauc steps as will secure to British traders and seamen the pro. teotion of a British consul in the island of Timor, with which a valuable trade in ponies seems now to be opening. We shall esteem It therefore a matter of favour if our Sydney cotemnporaries take notice of the occurrence. The Strathisla sailed from Sydney for Timor with Captain Lees on to trd as commander, and Mlr. Sulomon, the sun of the gentleman who had chartered tire vessel, as supercargo. For the proper care and management of the ponies, a young mnan of tile name of Lampard, witls eight assistants, was shipped at the same port, the former unider an engagement with the supercargo only, the lat'er ...

Van Diemen's Land. lMAltnEeTs.-a farket Prices, New Whar/, Nov. 21 -The recent favourable accounts from Sydney have put a stop to all speculation in market produce for exportation ; there are therefore no buyers except for town consumnp tion ; and as the supply of vegetables of every description that an advanced season can affird are greatly increasing, a speedy and much wished for fall must soon take place in the price or every article of con'umptiol ; the highest price obtained tor wheat during the week has been 1Sr., which, however, was confined to one or two instances where the sample was of the most superior kind.

HINTS On Self-improbement for the Young. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 December 1839
H INTS dOt Crcltf.mtprobintnt for toe Young. From Chambers' Life of Franklin. Whatever may be the advantages derived from the best course of instruction at school, it.may be assumed as an incontrovertible truth, that only by a regular and methodic' study in private, only by intense application of the faculties to'various' subjects in regul' lar succession, can the mind be brought toa high; state of culture, and suflicient knows ledge be acquired for any great and useful pr pose. In the biographies of many indi viduals who :irrived at eminence in literaL. ture, we'find ample proofs of the: value of private study. It is conspicuous in th: life of FRANKLI?I; whose course'of life and study, while following'the occupatiuis of At cotmpositor in a printing-office, at i limited weekly wage, may form a model for the' imitation of young men moving in a similar rank of life. FRIANIKLIN, in his Memoirs, tells us how he learned the art of construct ing sentences and improving his style of writin...

The Good Bishop. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 December 1839
The Good Bishop. We take the following extracts from a recent American translation (frotm the French) of the life of Cardinal Cheverus, Archbishop o' Bordeaux, and formerly bishop of Boston, U. S. of whom, by the way, D)r. Channing thus wrote in his essay of Feoelon:- " Has not the metropolis of New England witnessed a sublime example of Christian vir. toe in a Catholic bishop ? Who, among our religious teachers, would solicit a comparison between himself and tile devoted Cheverns ? This good man, whose virtues and talents have notw raised him to high dignities in churoh and state, who now wears in his own" country the joint honours of an arcbishop and a peer, livedl in the midst of ns, devoting his days and niýihts, and whole heart to the service of a poor and uneducated congregation. We saw him declining, in a great degree, the soci.ty of the cultivated and refined, that lie might be the frieud of the ignorant and friendless; leaving the circles of polished.life, which he would ha...
A SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 December 1839
A SONG. Tune--" The Flowers of the Forest." Ti'e stars all unclouded are peacefully shining, And gently the moonlight plays o'er the sea wave; A breeze in the: long streaming pinnet is twining, That poiuts as it waves to my mariner's grave. :IIow dear-is the lone beach, the midnight how holy, To her that in secret bewails a lost love; &Oh ! here all unseen by the wide eyes of folly, lly soul may the truth of his tenderness prove. 'Cold lies my true love, beneath the wild billow, And hopeless I mourn on the -sad sounding: shore. 'Oh ! never will pleasure again press my pillow, Nor time the gay dream of my fondness restore. Winds, mock not my sorrow'! Roll fiercer, false ocean ! Ye sighed not so softly, nor murmured so low, g'lhen, deep in the surges of stormy commotion, Ye wreck'd this frail vessel, and plunged mo in woe. 7th October, 1804.
