LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 December 1839
LOCAL. Count STRELESKI, the Naturalist, left the Australian Club on Sunday morning for Goulbourn, taking with him a covered cart, two horses, and a servant. It is his inten- tion to explore the country, south of Yass to Port Phillip. He will then proceed to Launceston, exploring the interior of Van Diemen's Land as he goes along. He ex- pects to return from Hobart Town to Syd- ney in about 4 months ; when we hope to be able to lay before our Readers some valua- ble information respecting the southern parts of the Colony. The Count will be accom- panied part of the way by Mr. James Mac- arthur. LIBERALITY,—It gives us pleasure to re- cord the liberal offer of a Scottish Gentle- man, a Presbyterian; who has offered to give the Sisters of Charity an allotment to build a convent in Parramatta; if they will send a branch of their order to New Zealand; and on their arrival in that country; he has promised to give them likewise an extensive grant of land purchased to him there.

To Correspondents. &nbsp; &nbsp; *** What are all our Country friends about ? Are the Bush rangers all dead—the Blacks all civilized or massacred—the sheep all liv- ing, and the crops all safe ? As this Journal is widely circulated in &nbsp; England, Ireland, and Scotland, and is sent regularly to several Members of Parliament, it is an eligible medium for the discussing of such Colonial Questions, as it is desirable should be well understood at home. *** All communications to be addressed to the Editor, at the Chronicle Office, 67, Pitt-street, Sydney.
Original Correspondence. Immigation. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 December 1839
Immigation. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-Having, lately, by accident, seen an article in the Sydney Monitor, extracted from your Journal, giving an account of the treat- ment experienced by emigrants coming here in Mr. Marshall's ships ; and having also seen the gratuitous strictures of the Editor of the Monitor, I, after weighing the subject well, conceived it to be a duty I owed the writer of that article, as well as the public at large, to bear my testimony to what I too was an eye and an ear witness of, hoping it may also provoke others to the developement of a system so highly eulogised, yet in my opinion, and in the opinion of hundreds more, fraught with cruelty and de- gradation. In the first place then, I beg to state that I have not the most distant idea of who the writer of the article in question is, nor, secondly, had I any ' quarrel or pique' with any of the officers on board ; nor, thirdly, do I look at things with a 'jaundiced eye ;' nor, fourthly...
The Chronicle. Sydney: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 December 1839
Sydney : TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1839. THE importation of labourers into New South Wales upon an extensive scale seems to be generally considered as the measure of all others most con- ducive to the prosperity of the colony. We doubt much the wisdom of this wholesale transportation system ; but as it seems to be a measure already settled and agreed upon, it becomes the duty of every friend of humanity, and more particularly of those, who are at the helm of affairs, to see that this scheme, of enriching the already wealthy portion of the colonists, be conducted upon humane and philan- throphic principles. It may, or may not, be important to the bulk of the people of this country, that its immense waste lands should be made productive at the public ex- pense, for the benefit of the possessors, without any equivalent. But if this must, and ought to be, the utmost care should also be taken that the Im- migrants are humanely dealt with during their long and perilous voyage. It is the duty ...

Adelaide Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 December 1839
ADELAIDE MAIL. &nbsp; We are informed that, in shipping a lot of mails for London, in the Royal George, on &nbsp; Thursday last, a mail-bag for Adelaide, con- taining letters and newspapers, was by the neg- ligence of the messenger, carried on board that ship. The error was almost immediately dis- covered by the Post office authorities, who forthwith dispatched one of their officers on board to explain the circumstances, and demand the restoration of the Adelaide mail. Instead of complying with the resasonable and important request thus made, the commander of the Royal George refused peremptorily to give up the mail, on the score of its being inconvenient so to do. There was the less excuse for such im- proper conduct on the part of the master of the vessel, as, at the time when the mistake &nbsp; was detected, and restoration demanded, the ship was laying to, on the cove of Brad- &nbsp; ley's Head, it being then calm, and the ship being unable to mak...

Colonel Wilson. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 24 December 1839
COLONEL WILSON. An elaborate defence of this Gentleman appeared in the Colonist of Wednesday, - which in justice we should have re-publish, if it did not contain reflections upon persons whose honor is at least as valuable to them as that of the Colonel can be to his friends. The following are the charges proved against the Colonel, and said by the writer in ques- tion to be copied from a letter of the Colon- ial Secretary, addressed to Colonel Wilson, by command of His Excellency :-- &nbsp; 1st. In the case of James Batten,who was &nbsp; hired by you as a carpenter at wages below the current rate, the difference being made up to him by his pay as a constable, though he very rarely, if ever, performed any duty as such, his whole time appearing to have been occupied in working for you as a car- penter. &nbsp; 2nd. In the case of James Toomey, whose whole or principal employment at Pitt Wa- ter appears from his testimony, and that of other witnesses examined, t...
