WOOL. London, July 13th, 1839. SIn-Our first public sales of colonial wool, of this year's clip, which commenced';n the 3rdl instant,.closed on Wednesday the 10th. The catalogues comprised the following quantities viz.-" Australian ........ 1149 bales. Tpsmanian .... 6188 Cape .............0-17 East India........ 235 St. ilelena........ .1 Foreign ............402 '.19073 hales. From the difliculties existing in the money market, fears ..were entertained that we should stiffer in bonsequence; it is with pleasure, how ever, we are rnabled to state that our fears were gioundless, as we never recollect a larger attendance of buyers. or greater competition. Otr quotatiois of May lust were filly supported, and we have every reason to Hope they will continue throughout the season. Combing descriptions were more in demand than clothing, and lhinbs' wool realised enormoius prices. The getting-up of the wools, in general, was not good, and requires the continued attentiop of t)toe growers; th...

E1mancipistci. WiE do not notice the following sentences, which we extract from the loading article of the Sydney Gazelle of Tuesday, for the purpose of oem bating the opinions therein.put forth; for, thank God, there is no fear, that they will create any fooling save that of horror and disgust in the breas4 of any moral man, either in this Co lony or in England. We merely notice them to shewv that pretend ed zeal for religion i, not inconsis tent with brutal and inhtiuiman feel, ing., For our part, knowing, ts wit ito, the weakness of human nature; knowing also, that the cool calculat= ing and respectable, because, uncon victed villain is Qften more guilty than the thoughtless convict, who pos sesses less prudence with a better heart: -knowing, in fine, that all mankind are convicts in a certain sense, suif'er ing in banishment for their crimes, we should forswear religion and civiii :'ition together, rather tJiaiireceive a doctrine so monstrous, as, ,that be cause a mnan errs once...

Cerilan Society, [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 December 1839
i eiitat Sertet .,' The Concert am Wednesday evening was the best our friends the Cecilians have gi. ven within our recollection ; but had they not rather too heavy a sprinkling of pro fessionals for an amateur society ? One or two may occasionally be admitted, but we think four fifths rather too great an odds. Mlliss Fernandez's solo was deservedly ap plauded, and was by far the most attractive part of the evening's entertainment. The solo on the flute was but very common: plare. The thema wag pretty well played. but the skitaiming along the gamut, and perching on the shnke:key, were not exact lyswhafit we expected from one who is said to'take credit.for being the first fH aLtist in the Colony., Wei cannot say itapelt as to the.ataerits of the singed.s, generally.

Another Blow Aimed at our Rights and Liberties. House of Lords. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 December 1839
Another blow 0tntic at our 1tigbts anti Ithbcrtir0. House of Lords. The Archbishop of Canterbury, said, he rose to present some petitions to their lordships on a most important subject. One of the petitions was from the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge. The other pe tition was from a distinguished prelate of high character in Australia. The subject of these petitions had reference to the interests of the Church estab lished in our distant colonies in con nection with the Church of England. The petition from the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, began by asserting that it was the duty of the state to provide religious in struction for the people wheresoever they might be situated. It stated also that this country had not fulfilled the obligations due from her to her sub jects in the colonies. The petitioners prayed that means of further instruc tion might be granted to all our colo nies; and they further prayed that no now colony might be established w...

The Ballad of Poetry of Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 December 1839
900 tIalIat of Iottra of JlrtlanD. An Irish song cannot be said to resemble any other description of lyric. It constitutes a class per as. It not only developes the usual elements of the popular lyric in a state of greater inten. sity than the songs of any other country in the world, but it exhibits combinations and contrasts strange and abrupt transitions, mixed sympa thies, and an inextinguish.d enthusiasm of the animal spirits which have no existence else where. Unlike the popular songs of other nations, it is not so mltcb distinguished by the predominance of any particular quality, as by a marvellous blending of qualities the most opposite and the most irreconcileable. Thus in French seqgs we expect a certain idiomatic gaiety and brilliant wit-in Spanish songs, picturesque images and a chivalric spirit-in Italian songs, languishing passion and the romance of the beautitol-in the songs of Poland, heroic ardour and a gathering of historical glories-and in the songs of Germany. fer...
