REMAINS OF THE LATE REV. Richard H. Froude, M.A., FELLOW OF ORIEL COLLEGE, OXFORD. London: 1838. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 December 1839

REMAINS OF 'THE LATE REV. Richard H. F'roude, M. A., 'FELLOW OP ORIRL.COLLEGB, OXFORD. London: 1838. From the DmaLIN REVIEW. IT is,not often that the leaders of opinions let the public into a view of their secret counsels and feelings.; but when'they do, we think it does credit to the uprighitnees and sincerity of their intentions. -it shows that they wish us to be acqoainted with the secret springs of thir actions, and even to peer behind'the veil which generally conceals, the nman front our sight, while we are viewing only his productions Nay, the more unreservedly the human weak nesses of. the individuals are revealed, and the more the feeling is expressed, that with their exposure, or in spite of it, their cause will sue. ceeed,thel more highly we shall estimate their confideice in the correctness of their views, and the disinterestedness of their zeal in pro. pagating them. These reflections have been suggestedito us by the perusal of Mr. Froude's remains. He was, while living,...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle."A time to keep silence, and a time to speak." [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 December 1839

Ovtginal Corre poutt ence. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. " A time to keep silence, and a time to speak." Sea,-1t appears to me, that the time has at length arrived when it has become the botunden duty of the inhabitan's of these colonies to speak, and to speak out. It is indeed time that the voice of Australia should be heard in the legislative halls of Great Britalii, and that, too, in a tone which aJsall msake the rulers of the British empire listen to oiur just complaints. It mnust be remembered that New South Wales it no longer a merely penal settlement, Whatever we may have been, we are now, by an Act of lthe British Ouvernment itself, a VRete PEOPLE ; and it is therefore our duty to ask for, and endeavour to obtain in every legal way, the rights of free men. Are we at present, I ask, governed as becomenth a free nation? Assuredly we are not. It is true we have soarcely as yet emerged from the state of a penal settlement; butt surely the importance, wealthy and i...

ORIGINAL POETRY. A RUMINATION. Unpublished Verses of the late John Galt, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 December 1839

ORrIGINAL EOETRY. A RUM'INATION. Unpublished Verses of the late John Galt, Esq. I was a wayward and phantastic child, In wilful boyhood prone to reverie, In bolder youth, perhaps, a little wild; But firm of purpose-calm with energy. Then came adversity. Her ruthless press Crush'd all my hopes, and made me densly stern; Bnt-my soft heart escep'd, and, ne'ergheless, With famish'd wishes, to be kind would yearn. Dark, dark and wild still rose the rising storm; My all of life was scatter'd from the bough. Tell me, dread Heaven ! when did I ever harm ? That I so long defraud the grave.worm now. I have resisted-but I never knew The cursing crave of the revengeful breast, And banes full oft I have been doom'd to rue, That seem'd like blessings till they were pos sessed.

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, DEC. 10, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 10 December 1839

Sydney: TUESDAY, DEC. 10, 1839. A letter appeared in a contemporary print recently, signed " John Richard Hardy," the police magistrate at Yass. The object of the writer is to explain some circumstances to which allusion had been made in the Le gislative Council, by an honourable member, of the name of Hannibal Macarthur. From this, we learn that James, the son of this gentleman, har- boured a runaway prisoner-or govern ment man as they are called -for three months. On information lodged, the case was brought before the bench, and James pleaded guilty. Now this we deem a very straightforward trans action; the offence was proved by the delinquent himself, and though his friends may feel regret at the occur rence, yet they cannot deem themselves called upon to sympathize with the culprit as an individual aggrieved and oppressed. Yet the father, in his place in Council, brings the case-a case which, we conceive, ought to have reached his Excellency through the ordinary official channel...
