The Chronicle. Sydney: FRIDAY, DEC. 13, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 13 December 1839

Sydney: FRIDAY, DEC. 13, 1839. THAT extraordinary document, the Report of the Immigration Committee, has gone forth to the world with all its ignorant or unprincipled recommenda- tions, its cruel avarice, its foolish cal- culations, and its attempt to burden this colony with a weight which would   certainly crush it - a national debt. This document has been published and read, and not a voice has been raised, save our own feeble one, to deprecate the evils with which we are threatened.   For the sake of a paltry trifle of additional expenditure, a traffic in human blood is to be established, and the Press, the guardian of public right, is not even silent, but applauds the act. One journal so far forgets itself, as to call the Governor's attention to the superiority of Mr. Marshall''s "justly praised system." The writer is evi-   dently a person of humane feeling, and would not, knowingly, countenance anything of an oppressive or immoral tendenc...

O tigitnalI ftorvepottante. SYDNEY BANK. 7o the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sta,-I3y the Herald of this day, the Provi sional Committee and Secretary pro tens to the S3 dney Banking Company, might be understond to have discharged their public duty by distri buting to each shareholder a printed copy of the deed and a general list of the subscribers' names and addresses; they had time suflicient to do both, nor was the expense thereof coining out of their pockets, but charged to the Bank, similar to all such institutions. Of the few copies yet disposed of in the Committee solely, either of the deed or subscription lint, they appear to be intended for the sole use of the candidates for the directorship. only those too, who may happen to be on their side with which they have been employed for weeks past can vassing the shareholders, to the elclusion of all others,.not on the Committee.

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 December 1839

To the Editor oth'e Australasian Chronicle. MR. EDITOR,-Seeing that notices have lately appeared in your paper, where objec tions have been raised to the religious tenets of applicants fotsituations as domestic ser vants, and reading also your avowed deter mnination to expose such fanatical proceed ings. I am induced to send you the ilteral copy of a note (with the exception of the parties' names), received by a young woman lately arrived in the Colony, who advertised for a situation as needlewomnan and nursery assistant. T'he document is certainly unique. and well deserves a corner in the scrap book of any colonial virtuoso, as an example of the education and liberal ideas of a certain portion of society who raise their clamorous voices against a church whose foundation is placed upon a rock, which neither the iron hand of time, nor the swelling waves of dis sension have been able to undermine or shake. It will also, through the columns of your journal reach the shores of the fathe...

The Present Social Distractions. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 December 1839

* je 1)rctcnt aocial E)8traction . In considering the extraordinary multiplicity and consequent confusion of interests obtaining at the present day in our highly complicated social system, we can never go wrong if we take for a key to all theejostlings and perturba. Lions which accompany it, the common prin. oiple of selfishness. The selfishness of classes is much greater than that of individuals greater even than the proportion of the unit to the mass. Every member of a-class belongs to it; first, the heavy subscription of his own natural personal selfishness, and over that, a sort of premium or entrance fee, in the same precious coin, applicable to general purposes. As a class man he has two sorts of selfishness a private and a public one; lie has a prayer for himself as a limb of the body, and another for the body which includes himself. And this ,plass.selllshness again derives all the greater force from the specious covering which is to be had for it. That which Smith segregari...

SELECT POETRY. THE LOST STAR. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 December 1839

S LECT POETRLE'r. THE LOST STAR. A star is gone l.a star is gone ! There is a blank in heaven! One of the cherub-quire has done His airy course this even. Hle sat upon the orb of fire That hung for ages there, And lent his music to the quire That haunts the nightly air. Hear how his angel brothers mourn The minstrels of the spheres ! Each chiming sadly in-his turn, Aid dropping splendid tears. The planetary sisters all. Join in the fatal song, And weep their hapless brother's fall, Who sang with them so long. From the deep chambers of the dome, Where sleepless Uriel lies, His rude harmonic thunders come, Mingled i.ith mighty sighs. The thousand car-born cherubim, The-wandering eleven, All join to chant the dirge of him, .Who just now fell from heaven! .-London. Saturday Journal.

Immigration. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 December 1839

Immigration. THE Monitor of yesterday contains' seven remarks upon our last article upon Immigration. As these remarks only amount to certain "shrewd sus picions" of a personal nature, and as the writer has withal the candour to quote our article at length, our reply shall be brief. Our contemporary says, we " con demn, in the severest terms, the re port of the Committee." This is true, and we condemn it because of its re: commending a system fraught with evils, at which humanity shudders; and the existence of which, as describ. ed by us, we will proves when called upon, by the oaths of hundreds of witnesses. 2. The Monitor says, that the report of the Immigration Committee, the evidence it collected, and public ru mour are against us. Answer. The Report of the Com mittee bears internal evidence that the saving of money, and obtaining able bodied labourers (things good in them solves) were the main objects with them.-They have made no provision against the crying evils to which we a...
