1 'e being a great interest in concerns of Banking at this time, the following extract from an English paper of a late date, will be interesting to our Bank Proprietors. DANK. OF ENGLAN.I).-- CONTRACTION OF' DISCOUNTS. The City, and in some degree, the country, have been thrown into much anxiety during the last week, by rea son of the contraction of B~ank of England ?iscountis, and by a kind of notice, that it is the purpose of the Baunk to reduce its Notes to the extent of three millions. . 'The suddenness of this measure has not a little added. to the alarm in the mercantile and manufacturing world. It is, indeed, scarcely a year since the Bank of England discounted good bills, of almost any date, at four per cent. They have now not only raised their discount to five per cent, but even refse to discount good me,,itntile bills at that rate, which has daused great distress in the City Here, therefore, two questions suggest. themselves:. first, why have the Directors done so; and sec...

Theology, Ethics, Religious Intelligence, &c. &c.   A Public examination of the children belonging to the Sunday and Infant Schools, took place on Tuesday, under the auspices of MRS. DARLING, at the National   School Room, Castlereagh Street. There were present on the occasion, MRS. DARLING, MRS. Mc'LEAY and daughters; MRS. JONES, and a number of other ladies. The examination was conducted by the venerable the ARCHDEACON, and the REV. MESSRS, MARSDEN, COW- PER, and HILL - the Male and Female Classes alter- nately, were each minutely questioned touching their proficiency in Scriptural knowledge; and the pertinent answers given, bore ample testimony to the assiduity of their instructors. Select pieces of Poetry were also recited by the senior scholars. The ARCHDEACON took occasion to notice, that an Infant School had been established by direction of His Majesty. The system was intended to become general throughout the Colony- and would shortly...

THE MONITOR. SYDNEY,. FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 18;" At the Antipodes and in the fifth quarter of the Globe too, (as a quondam Poet of Australia incongruously designated this land of Kangaroos and black Swans,) it is not at all surprising .to.. see .a Bank refusing one applicant to cash 'their Notes, while quite undaunted at what in the old World, would make men's., blood run cold, other. applicants are depositing their money at the same instant, with.the.utmost sang" f*/oid, as though the Cashier were a perfect Crassus, or to come to more modern:Treasurers, a second Abraham Newland. Yet such is the wond'rous spectaclejmow to be seen at the Bank Buildings opposite the Head Quarters of His Majesty's'3rd Regiment of Foot, George Street, Sydney,-and what is still more remark able, nothing, is charged to old Lombard Street Pedestrians, bu't they, may go in and view so strange a phenomenon with out being charged a shilling, the usual metropolitian price for all great sights.

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 19 May 1826

Domestic Intelligence       The continual- rains that prevailed during the greater part of the last month; threw a deep gloom over the hopes of the farmer and grazier, while the cold nights were equally unpropitious-to the. growth of the early   wheats.. Had the wet continued, the consequences would have been most disastrous, but they have pro videntially ceased The greater part of the maize crops had been secured previous to the late rains, and the ap pearance of the growing grain is as promising as it generally is at this season of the year. The mornings now begin to give keen notice of the near approach of Winter--a few miles from Sydney the frost has been severe, accompanied by frequent cold winds Nature indeed begins to wear a chilling aspect notwithstanding the last Autumn month is not yet expired.' , The new race-course, as originally projected, was somewhat more than a mile and a quarter.

PROSPECTUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 19 May 1826

THE Proprietors of the MONITOR, after much labour, and more anxiety, at length presume to lay before their friends and the public of these Colonies, the first fruits of their exertions. Decorum, as well as long-established custom requires, that in consequence of the omission of a previous Prospectus, they should in their first number, explain the grounds on which they have been encouraged to introduce to the public notice a third Journal. In old and populous Kingdoms, where Towns can boast of their fifties, and hundreds of thousands, the authors of a new Periodical, can, without risking the charge, either of illiberality or gasconnade, point out the failings, real or alleged, of the previous occupants of the literary field; and not only declare their determination to avoid the defects of their predecessors, but may also bold- ly express their ability, to excel any thing of the kind hitherto presented to a good-natured public. All this, in an extensive population of fifty, or a hundr...

MEETING OF THE BANK PROPRIETORS. A most important Meeting of the Proprietors of the Bank took place at twelve at noon on Wednesday. A communication, however, had been opened by the Pre sident in the course of the morning with the Governor, and the former went to, and returned from Government House several times. At length, at about four o'clock P. M. the President announced to the Court that His Excellency had come to the determination of granting, the Bank a loan of 2'O,OCXO. sterling, in British Coin, provided MR. Lithgow of of the Commissariat, and MR. Jones, of the House of Jones and VAKU; were elected as directors to fill up the two vacancies;   and (as we understood the matter) provided that one •ither Director at the next vacancy should be elected, who commanded the confidence of .the Government.

SCHEMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 19 May 1826

SCHEMES. There are circumstances of such striking singularity, both as to causes and effects-to diagnostics and conse quences--between the bubble mania of 1825 and that of 1721, that we think we shall not perform an ungrateful   task to our readers,in laying some of them before them. 'The comparison will be found to be of wholesome ad- monition. It strikes us, that it affords as forcible an argument against the bubbles, of 1825 and the events, whether domestic or foreign, commercial or political, which bade fair, at one period, to be influenced by their modern growth, as historical analogy has furnished or can furnish on any given political question. It appears that Lord Chancellor Cooper was as stren uous an opponent of the Joint Stock Company mania of 1721, as the present Chancellor has been of that of 1825. He made a determined stand against the fatal South Sea Company bill, which was the fertile source of all the mischief of that period; and he concluded an energeti...

--1. ---' TRANSLATED FROM THE SPANISH OF JORGE MANRQUL. O let the soul its slumber break, Arouse its senses and 'awake, . To see how soon , fe with its glories, glides away, And the stern-footsteps.of decay . SCome gliding on. '. 'Hlow plesanre like the passing wind, . . Blows by and leaves us nought behind, But grief at last; How still our present happiness . Seems, to the wayward.fancy, less Than.what is past. And while wd eye the rolling tide, Down which our flying minutes glide Away so fast; Let us the present hour employ, . And deem each future dream of joy . Already past. Let no vain hope deceive the mind- , or happier let us hope to find STo-morrow than to-day. Our golden dreams of yore were bright Like them the present shall 'delight- . " Like them decay. Our lives like hast'ning streams must be, That into one engulphing sea Are doomed to fall ; i'he Sea of Death, whose waves roll on, O'er king and kingdom, crown and throne, And swallow all.
