orspintal Q QtrOtr ponturlucc. Continuation of " A Subscriber's" remarks on the state of these Colonies, suggested by an examination qf the Estimates for 1840. No. 7. To the Editor qf the Australasian Chronicle. Sin,-Publlc men' nnd'measures legitimately become the objects of public discussion'; as such I select the two following :-lt, The ant mudversions in Council on the Chief Justice for his decision in a recent case of assnult. 2ndly, Ilishop Broughton--hi snat in Council, und his enormous salary of 2,000 a.yeaur It is an invaluable maxim of the British con stitution, that a Judge cannot be called to an account for his decisions, not even by the highest tribunal in the nation. What then must be the indignation of the British public, when they ascertain, that in this distant dependency ol thile empire, the partisans of an exclusive yaterm are allowed, in the presence of the representative of the Queen, in the Legislative Council of the nation, where due decorum might be looked fo...

The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, DEC. 6, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 December 1839

Sydney: FRIDAY, DEC. 0, 1839. PROOFS, thick as leaves in the Vale of Vallombrosa, daily, nay hourly, come upon us, to show the truth of our assel'tion, that-the colony is proceeding rapidly to ruin, in default of a Council in which its interests would be really represented, and to manifest the evil tendencies of the Council as at present constituted. Weo gave in last publica tion a minute of the Treasury, from which it appears that an organised official establishment is about to be sent out from England to New Zealand, and that the expense, be it small or great, is to be borne by the funds of this colony; though the proposition is modified in its harshness by the ami cable name of a loan. To what a state are we reduced ! Our monies-the nerve-the sinew-the bone- the mar row of the colony, arc calmly directed by a Mr. Stephen and his compeers to be sent over to New Zealand. For what purpose? To pay the salary of a recently appointed- Lieutenant Go vernor, and all the expenses incident...

European Intelligence. Conversions to the Catholic Faith. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 6 December 1839

tEuropean Intelligence. Qronbc~ions to tj t Qratljotic Faittb. We have boon favoured with the following extract of a letter addressed to a clergyman in Sydney, from a respectable gentleman residing in Li verpool ; its contents cannot fail to give great satisfaction to many of our readers. To others, it will afford mat ter for reflection. The letter is dated " Liverpool, July 9th, 1839. * * * Matters are going on here much in the same way as when you left us, only that conversions are much more numerous in all the chapels. I attribute this principally to the preach ing against Popery of M'Neile, which, unless for his own sake, I hope he will continue to do. Some of our converts are persons of high respectability. Among others I may mention Miss Newton, the daughter of the great Methodist preacher of that name.* Miss Lethbridge, the daughter of Sir Thomas Lothbridge, has become a Catholic, and has been turned out of her father's house in consequence. She has been received into the hou...

Report :of. the Committee Gin jlolicc anb QIaoIu. ?OONCLUDED FROM OUR LAST NUMBER.) GENERAL OBSERVATIONS. In the co?trbe of their inquiry, your Com mittee have been-led to consider the incon. venienoes whichl arise from the plresent system of mustering ticket-of-leave holders, as affecting the cunvict himself, his employer, and the waste of labour to the colony, Mr. Gisborne states, r' The system employed hitherto in the uzuster ofticket.of-leave men may in my opinion, be materially improved. It has been, and still is the practice, to congregate' all the ticket-of leave men in a district, on the day fixed by the regulations, at the nearest Bench. This is the rulesalthough it is repeatedly deviated from in the muster of men whute names are transmitted to the Bench by their master or overseer, with a certificate that they Are emplored in their master's business. Both the rule and thl exception are,I tlhink, very objectionable. 'The former calls men from all parts of a district to a Be...

After which, having reason to believe that the fugitive auctioneer, or some clue whereby lie might be traced was to be found at Mr. Marshall's establish ment, at Wycatow, he proceeded with his crew (well armed) over land to-that place, but his endeavours were equally unsuccessful.

Country News. Bathurst, 3rd Decr. 1839: ANOTHER MURDER.--On Friday evening last, the wife of George Luck, publican, on the Wellington road, about twenty miles from Bathurst, was shot dead apparently while standing in one of her rooms, the body being found lying inside the door. The ball passed through her scull, struck the wall, and bounded back to where she lay. An inquest was held on the following day, and a verdict of wilful murder returned by the Coroner's Jury against some person or persons unknown. Three convicts are in gaol on suspicion of the murder; two of whom are assigned servants to Mr. David Perrier, the other a ticket-of-leave holder, in the employ of Mr. Nicholson. The house has been robbed of a quantity of gold rings, brooches, &c., and about thirty sovereigns, some silver, and various other articles. There was an old man a servant in the house, they bailed him up. No cause can be assigned for this sanguinary murder, except that she might have known, and been...

The colony of New South Wales should be divided into six municipal districts. But, as I think it would be inmproper.in us to take upon ourselves the responsibility of forming those districts in this country, I would leave the formation of them totthe local govern ment, according to the provisions hereafter contained. 3. These municipal districts, ihotld be subdivided into wards by the Governor, in the manner hereinafter provided. 4. Each municipal district should have its district court, composed of such number of councillors (not more than one'for every five hundred inhabitants, and not less than one fot two thousand), as the Governor shall fix, subject to the subsequent pro. ceedings. I have fixed the maximum and the mini mum, with a view partly to prevent the Governor's fixing the number of councillors so as to job by diminishing or en...

To the Editor of the Australia,. Smi,-I find in a late herald t report of proceedings in the Legislative Council, in the course of which -1li. Macarthur, a mseumbbr of that body, thought proper to make an attack upon me, in my character of police magistrate He observed, in the first place, that the state of this district was diograceful to me; and in the next, that I had acted with great impropriety in fining his son for harhouring a runaway convict. You may, on first thoughts, suppose that I might well let alone statements of this kind, so long as I am not called tupon by the government for a reply. But I wish you to observe, that not a syllable was said In my delenco in the Council s and that, therefore, unless I am con tented to have it believed by the public out of the district that I am an old wowats, or spme thing worse, I mutist speak for myself. More. over, the silence that met the accusations might lead people to infer that the government were dissatisfied with my conduct. ...

HINTS ON ADVANCEMENT IN LIFE, FOR THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 December 1839

HINTS ON ADVANCEMENT IN LIFE. FOR THE YOUNG. (From Chambers' Life qf Franklin.) Young persons of an aspiring disposition are exceedingly apt to be heedless of the qualifica. tions which are necessary for their success in life. They miscalculate the nature of the obstacles they have to encounter, and their power of overcoming these obstacles. #" Can S-submit to contumelies ?-can I endure patiently the sneers of my companions ?-can I foaego many indulgenees,and even stiffer pinch ing privations?-can I act on my own judgment throughout, in all the embarrassments that may occur? -am I not liable to go wroug from sell conceit ?-but, above ill, have I the necessary qualifications for the adventurous course I design to pursue?" These are a few of the questiuns which the ambitious youth has to put scarchingly to hit conscience; and it is by abstaining from putting and satisfactiily answer ing this description of inquiries, that so many young men founder in their career. They have the ambiti...
