Address. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
The establishment of an additional period‐ &nbsp; ical constitutes an era in the history of a &nbsp; limited community like that of New South Wales, and the public are naturally led, on the first appearance of a new periodical, &nbsp; to inquire, What is the object which its con‐ &nbsp; ductors have in view? What are the prin‐ &nbsp; &nbsp; ciples on which it is to be conducted? and &nbsp; &nbsp; what are the circumstances that have led to &nbsp; its establishment?—We shall most willingly &nbsp; &nbsp; satisfy our friends and the public on each &nbsp; and all of these points. &nbsp; In regard then to the general object which the conductors of this journal have &nbsp; in view, in occupying the position they now hold in this colony, the public may &nbsp; rest assured that The Colonist Newspa‐ per has not been got up as a mere money‐ &nbsp; making specul...

COLONIAL EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
&nbsp; &nbsp; By the ship Henry Tanner, from thirty‐five to forty colonial‐bred horses have been forwarded to Madras for the service of the Honourable the East India Company, by Captain Collins. The average price we understand is from 15l. to 20l., the cost of their freight to Madras is 10l. each, and it is expected they will realize not less than 80l. or 90l. each in India. In reference to this branch of colonial commerce, equally interesting to the landholder and to the merchant, we are happy to quote the following paragraphs from a paper, by an Indian officer, in the Cape of Good Hope Literary Gazette for August last. The object of the, writer is to recommend the ex‐ portation of horses from the Cape to Bombay:— There appeared in one of the Bengal Mofussil papers, the Delhi or the Agra, I forget which, a fa‐ cetious paper on the old times as contrasted with the new; the difference, to wit, betwixt 1811 and 1833, the period of the writer’s Indian experience. The po...
PSALM XIX. [From Specimens of an Improved Metrical Version of the Psalms of David, proposed for the Use of the Presbyterian churches in the Australian Colonies, and founded chiefly on Luther's German version.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
[From Specimens of an Improved Metrical Version &nbsp; &nbsp; of the Psalms of David, proposed for the Use of the Presbyterian churches in the Australian Co‐ &nbsp; lonies, and founded chiefly on Luther’s German &nbsp; version.] The starry heavens above proclaim &nbsp; The glories of their Maker’s name; &nbsp; The shining firmament declares His works to all the universe. Day unto day pro claims abroad &nbsp; The wisdom and the power of God; Night unto night repeats the sound, &nbsp; And spreads th’ intelligence around. No voice is heard amid their train; They speak not with the speech of men; &nbsp; But every where their words extend, Far as the world’s remotest end. High in the lofty firmament. &nbsp; He, for the sun, upreared a tent; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Who, with a bridegroom’s joyous race, &nbsp; Like hero, gladly runs his race. &nbsp; &n...
Original Poetry. TO A CAPE-PIGEON. [The following Lines were occasioned by the circumstance of a Cape-pigeon (a sea bird of a high southern latitude) continuing to follow the good ship Australia, on her passage to the northward, after doubling Cape Horn on her voyage to England, for many days after all the birds of the same species had disappeared, in consequence, as it was supposed, of its mate having been caught by one of the boys of the ship.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
To a Cape‐pigeon. [The following Lines were occasioned by the cir‐ cumstance of a Cape‐pigeon (a sea bird of a high &nbsp; southern latitude) continuing to follow the good ship Australia, on her passage to the northward, after doubling Cape Horn on her voyage to England, for many days after all the birds of the same species had disappeared, in consequence, as it was supposed, of its mate having been caught by one of the boys of the ship.] &nbsp; Poor, little solitary thing! &nbsp; Why fliest thou all alone? Why follow our vessel with ceaseless wing? Why seek the torrid zone? &nbsp; There are no icebergs floating there: &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Thou couldst not breathe its sultry air! Go, seek thy native polar skies; Go, little wanderer, go, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To yonder rugged isle girt with ice &nbsp; &nbsp; And everlasting snow, &nbsp; &nbsp; Where thou hast doubtless built...
Religious Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
&nbsp; &nbsp; New South Whales. A pro re nata or special meeting of the Pres‐ bytery of New South Wales, was held in the Scots Church, Sydney, on Tuesday the 9th of &nbsp; December last, the Rev. John Cleland, A.M. Minister of the Scots Church, Portland Head, &nbsp; being Moderator. On the Presbytery being constituted by prayer by the Moderator, the Rev. Kirkpatrick Dickson Smythe, A.M. an ordained Minister of the &nbsp; Church of Scotland, recently arrived by the ship James, was introduced to the Presbytery by the Rev. Dr. Lang, and received the right hand of fellowship as a Minister of the Church of Scot‐ land in this territory. The Rev. Robert Wylde, A.M. a licentiate of the Church of Scotland, and Mr. David Mackenzie, A.M. a candidate &nbsp; for license in the Church of Scotland, both re‐ cently arrived per the ship James, to occupy the situation of head‐masters or professors in the Australian College, were also introduced in like ...
Colonial Statistics. TWO-FOLD BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
&nbsp; &nbsp; Two‐fold Bay. The following is a correct account of the circum‐ stances connected with an intended settlement in this locality, of which a somewhat erroneous &nbsp; version has. been published in some of the colo‐ nial papers. Rather more than twelve months ago, Thomas Pottinger, Esq., a gentleman of large property in the north of' Ireland, went to London with the intention of engaging a vessel to carry out his family and tenantry—consisting of two or three hundred industrious and virtuous peasants of the province of Ulster—to New South Wales, where &nbsp; he intended to settle, like an ancient patriarch, with his numerous dependants all around him. Alarmed and horrified, however, at the accounts that were given him of the state of society in this penal colony by individuals connected with the Southern Australia Association, he gave up all idea of settling in New South Wales to em‐ bark in that chimerical project, and was accord‐ ingly n...
BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
&nbsp; [From our Bathurst Correspondent] This interesting and beautiful portion of our &nbsp; &nbsp; colonial territory is becoming more and more attractive every day. The salubrity of its climate, its great extent of naturally clear land, exactly &nbsp; resembling the unenclosed commons of England, &nbsp; and the superior character of its respectable so‐ ciety, are circumstances in its favour that have &nbsp; already begun to tell on two very different classes of persons, of whom, however, the one will pro‐ bably retard the general advancement of this district as much as it is likely to be accelerated by the other. The latter of these classes consists of respectable free emigrants, recently arrived from England and the East Indies; several families of this class having recently purchased small estates, and settled on the plains of Bathurst, while others are waiting for eligible opportunities of following their example. The other class...
Literature and Science. AN ADDRESS TO THE SUBSCRIBERS TO THE WINDSOR AND ETON PUBLIC LIBRARY AND READING ROOM, [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 January 1835
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; An Address to the Subscribers to the Windsor and Eton Pub‐ lic Library and Reading Room, By Sir J. F. W. Herschel, K. G. H. Gentlemen,—I ought, perhaps, to apologise &nbsp; &nbsp; to you for addressing you on this occasion from a written paper. I know that to do so is not al‐ together in consonance with the habits of our countrymen when assembled on public occasions, and I should certainly not claim such an indul‐ gence on this, if I had no better reason to assign than a mere want of the readiness and fluency of of a practised speaker. But I consider this an important occasion; and as I have thought long and with deep interest on the advantages, of a a public and national description, which may be expected from institutions of this nature, as well as the evils to which they may become obnoxious, if not conducted on proper principles, and with a view to the general result, I am very desirous that what I have to say should n...
