The Sydney Bank Company. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839
The Sydney Bank Company. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sia,-The Pboprietors 01 this new Scheme at first assumed the good honest intendi n of rendering essential set vice to the trade of Syd ney in all its branches, so much needed, a fact which could not be put aside by any nmanaging director, bank or banks in the colony, nmuch less any barrister or barristers in New South Wales, a new race of hankers which will stir prise the learned men of Lincoln's-inn and the Temple, when they find their professional ?riends the only speakers, on the construction of a new bantk, whetn at their first meeting they affirmed the necessity of one, although four banks have already been established, but principally fur the use of their dirt ctors and friends. This point was very pithily alluded to by one of the banking barristers, which established his failme amongst the subscribers, ana, to that speech alone may he ascribe his election to the dilectorship.

Siut,--The attentiot or all interested In our trade wili Chiua msat at paee:at be direitc to tho critical state of our relations with the celes. tial emperor. As one well acquainted with Chinese aflntrs, I beg leave to offer a few remarks, which may be of some use to the commercial world. The real cause of our irequllet dih putes with China lies almost ta lhlly at one source-viz, the East India Company's opium traffio. It is unnecessary tfor Its to enter into detailed descriptions of that trallic, for they aro well known to the public. But any mIan who has ever witnessed scenes such as I have been a spectator ol'i the East, resulting from opium eatig, woulld, I am sure, deprecate to the tumost of his ability the trallic which civilized, ntissiinary-exporting England tint only tole rates, but promotes, andi actually carries oil not through private individuals, but through its acting gove Unment, What ritght has England to ilmpose o...

Education'-the Church. Protest against agreeing to the Address to Hler Majesty on the Archbishop of Canterbury's Resolutions on Education. Dissentient, 1. Because the Church of England, as by law established, has been for three centuries in possesion of great wealth, and being en trusted with the education of the people, has not performed her duty in that re= spect, as has been proved by the gross igno= rance of the peasantry, more particularly in the vicinity of Canterbury. 2. Because the church of England esta: blished in Ireland, infinitely more wealthy than the church in England, had, for 70 years and upwards, the disposal of enormous parliamentary grants, and of other vast funds for the support ofcharter and other schools. into which a catechi'hm was introduced, teaching the Roman Catholic children that their parents were wicked and damnable heretics, thereby destroying the most en. dearing duties of social life, and the char ter schools were ultimately, and of necessity closed...

Something more than a Whisper. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 27 December 1839
ontletfjing more tnja a ?Tljtiapeer. The following is an extract from a letter of Mr. Dunlop, of Penrith, to the Editor of the Colonist : " In) your report, Mlr. Editor, of the des hate on the police estimates, you represent Captain King to have said that '" Mr )un= lip chose to associate with the chief consra: ble, and to send to a public-house for a bot tle of wine to drink with the chief constable.' Whether such a story had been imposed on the credulity of the honourable member, or whether it was a gratuitous insult on his part,l unequivocally pronounce the assertion a falsehood. I found, on taking charge of this district, that the chief constable was one who had occupied his place long, and fulfilled its duties creditably, and appa rently as little disposed to obtrude on my grade as I wvould have been to permit such encroachment-hesides this, I assume Capt. King to have been aware that I did not choose my associates out of the middle order, having declined intercourse, even on h...

Report of the Provisional Committee appointed by the General Meeting of the 15th November, ultimo, to allot the shares aed preprare and pass the deed of settlement. Your Committee have undertaken the task entrusted to them with a deep sense of its im portance and responsibility, but in stating its results they derive much confidence in kisowing these to have been arrived at, not as is fre quently the case with Committees,- by a select few performing the entire duty, but by careful, unremitting attention, on the part of nearly the whole body. The allotment of the shares has been already announced in circulars issued by the secretary to the several subscribers. Your Committee will here confine themselves to reporting that they found it impracticable, consistently with the present issue to 35,000 shares, to award to any individual applicant a higer number than 88. Within this number they have allotted the shares, having reference to the ratios of the num bers applied for, and such othe...
