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

LQCALL. IMPORTANT DECISIoN.-The fol lowing decision, which was given in the Court of Requests, on Friday, is of considerable importance to the pro prietors of newspapers. It appeared that many persons who had subscribed to the tforituor newspaper sent in their resignation, which. the proprietor of that paper refused to accept unless accompanied by payment of the full amount of the current quarter, together with all arrears. This the parties in question refused to accede to, and allowed themselves to be sued for the amount of the current quarter,when to their surprise a verdict was deli vered against them by the* Commis sioners, on the ground that a the terms of subscription and the rules relative to the current quarter, in the event of resignation, having been made public, the subscriber by becoming so, had tacitly agreed to the duo observance of those regulations. SALE OF CATTLE.-The following are the particulars of a cattle sale effected by Mr. Armstrong at his repository on Thurs...

The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, DEC. 17, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 17 December 1839

Elie 48rass e. Sydney: TUESDAY. DEC. 17, 1839. THE plan of a constitution for these 'colonies presented to the Secretary of State by Mr. C. Buller has become a matter of serious discussion with our publicists, chiefly as regards the quali fication of voters. Mr. Buller pro poses that a tenancy of £10 a-year shall constitute an elector; this, one *of our contemporaries thinks too large, and another too restricted a qualifica tion. The one proposes that the qua lification should be extended to a £5 'occupancy, and the other, thatituhould be restricted to one of £50. To most readers it will therefore appear as it does to us, that the parties are hardly =so far agreed upon common principles -as to arrive at any result satisfactory either to themselves or to their readers. -Holding, as we do, that all who con 'tribute to the public wealth should have a voice in its distribution, we would have the franchise extended, at least, to all heads of families, not 'otherwise disqualified, but as ...

Mrs. Bushelle's Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

Mrs. 'ushelle's Concert. This concert went off exceedingly well, as far as regards the vocal performances, There were among the pieces chosen a considerable sprinkling of Scottish and Irish melodies, which, as national melodies, are cetainly at least equal to those of Switzerland, or even Italy itself. With this admission,' we enter our decided protest against the clamour that has been raised by our contemporaries against the performance of opera musio. " Give us",' they say, " English, Irish, and Scotch melodies these we understand." Now it may boe very true that they do not understand learned music, -we know it is true ; but what follows,-just this, that they are unable to direct public taste in this matter. What would our contemporaries say to a writer upon public education who, after pointing out the importance and utility of studying thle rule of three, should immediately proceed to denounce geometry and algebra, as things useless and unintelligible, because, for. sooth, he is ...

Cecilian Society. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

(~eciiat ýotietý* To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-If the manner in which the affairs of the Cecilian Society have been conducted had given the slightest satisfaction to those persons connected with it, I should not have wasted a single moment in giving utterance to complaints, for which I regret to say, there is too much foundation. But when I see that common courtesy is not preserved by the committee to wards the members, I feel it my duty to urge the calling a general meeting, for the purpose of appointing personi more capable of managing the affairs of the Society. There is no need for me to apologize for endeavotring to keep the attention of the members alive towards the advancement of the interests of the- Society; for the more I consider it, the more fully am [ convinced that, unless a powerful effort is made by the members, it will quickly waste away, and only be known as "a thing that ,was." That the present committee have most grossly abused the power plac...

To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. SIR,-If you have the means of stating, pray inform your readers of the number of Catholic clergymen re ceiving salaries or stipends from the Queen's Government, as, if I am rightly informed, only very few of these .meritorious and laborious Chris tian teachers receive their stipends, owing, I have heard it said, to the ingenuity, or dexterity, or subtlety of a well-known and well.paid func tionary, who, to the disgrace of Aus tralia, has a seat in both its Councils, -and who is also said to be quite an adept in discovering flaws, and meeting with quibbles in the papers submitted to those Councils by other bodies of religionists. differing from his own. If wha I have eheard be true, (and I'have great reason 'to believe that it is,) it is perfect mockery to talk of the equity, impartiality, and usefulness of the Church Act. I am, Sir, Your most obedient servant, ENQUIRER. [We are unable to furnish the in formation.sought, but we ,have often...

Her Majesty. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

We copy the following from The New York Advertiser :--' There is a great deal too much readiness in this country to publish in the newspapers the private and confidential letters of our public agents abroad. The fol lowing from Mr. Stevenson, our Mi nister in London, appears in The Richmond Enquirer, and it strikes us as of a character that renders it im proper for publication. Respectlul as it is towards the Sovereign at whose Court Mr. Stevenson is the accredited representative of his country, it seems to us that he must feel rather awkward in seeing it come back upon him, printed in the London journals, and placed before the Queen and read some morning of the very day on which he has an audience of her Ma jesty or her Minister. It is published, however, and especially interesting, as coming from a source likely to be correct in the estimate of the young Sovereign's personal character. and appearance, we give it. After having been published in one newspaper there certainly can be ...

Country News. WEST MAITLAND, 17th December. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

Country News. WEST MAITLAND, 17th December. —Quarter sessions is just ended here. The calendar for this court was rather heavier than any other previous ses- sion ; the jury was required five days. A few summary cases were left, which were decided by the learned chairman. The majority of the charges were minor cases, and consequently the sen- tences were light ; two or three were sentenced as high as fifteen years' transportation, being the principal charges for cattle-stealing. Three or four cases were remanded till February next, for want of sufficient witnesses, when the court will sit again. It is quite evident that the Herald's long wish, in a great measure, has been complied with—that of more barris- ters wanted ; this sessions presented more men learned in the law than any before. It was quite a wonder, quite a treat, in the interior, to see so many curled wigs of the law ; but it is evident, through the activity and popularity of Mr. Nichols, that that gentleman has by far t...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

LOCAL. A person named O'Sullivan brought a charge of assault against Messrs. Gannon and Barrow, door-keepers in the Catholic Cathedral, in the Police Court, on Wednesday last, for having struck him, and turned him from the door of the church, on Sunday, the 15th instant. In the cross-examination of Sullivan by Mr. Barrow, it appeared that the complainant had been in the custom of annoying them. by going into whatever seat he pleased in the cathedral, and giving them abusive and threatening language, when they re- monstrated with him for the same.— Mr. Windeyer said, that this was a case which he thought would be better and more equitably settled by referring it to one of their clergy. Captain Innes said, that he had said the same to O'Sullivan when he had applied to him for a warrant, and that he was now doubly convinced that it was the best way to settle the affair. Mr. Brennan, who came in at that time, requested that the case might be gone through with. He said that his reason fo...

Emancipists. To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR It I were impanelled on a jury on a proceoution for libel against the editor of a newspaper, I should endeavour to impress on my brother jurors the sense I myself entertain of the peculiar necessity there exists for the most lenient and merciful consi deration of the law in every such case. Without reference to the blessings which flow from the liberty of the press, and from the public duty of a flritish jury, as its legitimate and effectual guardians against the dangers to be apprehended from state prosecu tions, or the assaults of private revenge, I would remind them, that all which appeared in print was not composed with the advantage of serious refloc tion, and that the articles of a news paper journal had seldom even under gone the slightest revision. A public journalist, as I apprehend, is entitled to the same excuse, because he writes in the same state of excitement, and subject to the same feelings, as those to which persons who are addre...

TO THE MINISTERS AND OFFICE-BEARERS OF THE Wesleyan Methodist SOCIETIES IN MANCHESTER. London, July 6, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 20 December 1839

TO THE MINISTERS AND OFFICE-BEARERS OF THE Wesleyan 1Wethodist SOCIETIES IN MANCHESTER. London, July 6, 1839. ".We hold the faith of ourfathers held to God." REVEREND SIns AND GENTLBMEN,-There alppeared in the Mforning Clhronicle of the 2nd of Jun,e an advertisement, headed "National Education," containing a manifesto on that important subject, addressed by you to sour representatives in parliament. I do not at all dispute your right to address your representatives on a matter of such great interest; but whilst I admit that right, I feel bound to dispute the propriety of the manner in which you so remonstrated. It seems to nle tilat the contents of your remonstrances do not exhibit any great stock of Christian knowledge, and that they are still more deficient in Chris tian clhaity. 'To avoid all possibility of mis-stating your sentiments, I will give them in your very words. They are these: 6 We most decidedly object to the intended scheme, on the strong grounds of conscience, and o...
