INFORMATION! 'The following is an extract frorn'a '-letter hi,serto,d in Tup Morning Chronici.e. The fuithor is known to us, he is a resident of Sydney, and most people will have a pretty 'rood jniess who he is: — ' Although 1 have been here now Tour weeks, 1 have not yet been able to see the Governor; it is not at all important, only that it has lost me a good deal of time.- It is expected that every newcomer attends the Governor's levee on Tuesday ; but unless you are there just at the right time, you cannot see him. Ho only gives two hours iu the week to the public, although paid so well ; and one hour of this two hours is taken up, viz. from half past eleven to linlf-past twelve o'clock, in celestial observations, particularly the altitude of the sun, and the regulation of the chronometers !

To the Editor of the Australian.

Your Paper, I nm sorry to sav: -lms-jw it r^crarirV« -mvsf»lf\ v\nlntr-ci Ilif* nrin/Mnlf* li*-rf» Iftifl down, and in representing me to be so imbecile in character, and ?o much the victim of a foolish vanity, as to suffer my sleep to depart from me, lest I should lose the election toj the Bank Di rectorship, T' consider you -have done me great injustice. My indifference as to the event of the election is well known to my friends'and supporters on that occasion ; and were your News paper confined in its chculation to Australia, I could laugh at your i/okc with other's, from a consciousness that they also would qonsi deritas such.

It becomes a primary object with all persons who; ire in any wise interested in tUe prosperity of new' Colonies, to contribute their exertions in the removal Df all obstruction-s to tho flood of emigration which the condition of the Mother Country at times g-ivcs: rise to. If people must emigrate, they will necessa rily resort to those Colonies more nearly assimilated to tlieir ow^ .habits — where the customs give the fairest promise^ot' finding a state of society most resembling that they relinquish j and where the L,aj.vs afford the greatest security to property— where indeed the pri vation of personal comforts is the least possible, and where the restraints on political and civil' liberty are not likely to counterbalance the temptations which are -necessary to induce a change of Country.

Make up your mind at once and irrevocably on every ques tion ; by these means you save the time that would otherwise be lost in choosing, and need never after waste a moment in hearing what another person has to say. o'.

THE LIVING SKELETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 15 December 1825

THE LIVING SKELETON. The following is an account of a strange lus_s naturæ who has just been imported for the gratification of the ravenous curiosity   of the London public : —         '' The name of the living skeleton i Claude Ambroise Seurat : he is a native of Troyes, in Champagne; was born on me on the 10th of April, 1798, and is consequently 27 years of age. "The child, on coming into the world, presented the customary baby form, its features being handsome ; but in proportion as the infant grew, the frame gradually wasted away; and so continued to decrease until the attainment of its full stature, which occurred at the usual term of life, at which period Claude Ambroise Seurat had attained his present height of 5 feet 7 inches and a half, when his frame had dwindled to the living skeleton form it now perso- nifies. Having been shaved for the purpose of displaying the formation of the skull, in order to prevent t...

THE LATE MAJOR OVENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 15 December 1825

THE LATE MAJOR OVENS. On Friday morning last the remains of the late Ma jor Ovens, the Chief Engineer, were interred in the new burial ground. About quarter past six o'clock the funeral procession moved off from the late resi dence of the deceased in Bent-street. The military party which was destined to pay their last tribute of respect, consisting of about three companies from the 57th and 40th regiments, commanded by a field offi cer, marched first in sections with their arms reversed ; these were followed by the regimental staff, the bands of the 3rd. and 40th regiments, which continued playing, alternately, slow and solemn airs in unison with the melancholy occasion they were met to cele brate. The Archdeacon in his canonicals, supported on either side by the clergymen of St. Philip's and St. James's, preceded the hearse containing the body. — Six mourners, composed of the principal civil and military officers of the present and late administra tions, accompanied the bier — one ...

THE BURMESE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 22 December 1825

THE BURMESE. If we may judge from private letters which' have reached ij* from India, the Burmese war appears to be drawing. rapidly to a close. The British arms have been hitherto crowned with com. plete success in that quarter, notwithstanding their numbers being thinned by diseases incidental to the climate, as well as attacks from the enemy. One- more short campaign, it was ex. pec ted, would -place the capital itself in their power, and force the King of Ava lo submit to \vhatever terms our army may impose. ''' ? .% v ? ?
