Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, (Continued from No. 39, February 10th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 12 June 1827
CHILDE HAROLD'S PILGRIMAGE BY LORD BYRON. (Continued from No. 39, February 10th.) MANY of our readers, particularly those whose residence up the country prevents them having access to the work, have ex- pressed a wish that we should fill the space usually devoted to Poetical Contributions, with a continuation of this most admired production of the deceased noble Author. &nbsp; VII. The Childe departed from his father's hall: It was a vast and venerable pile ; So old, it seemed only not to fall, Yet strength was pillar'd in each massy aisle. Monastic dome ! condemned to uses vile ! Where Supersition once had made her den, Now Paphian dames were known to sing and smile; And monks might deem their time had come agen, If ancient tales tell true, nor wrong these serious men. VIII. Yet oft times in his maddest mirthful mood Strange pangs would flash across Childe Harold's brow ; 'As if the memory of some deadly feud Or disappointed passion lurk'd below : But this none knew, or hap...

To THE EDITOR OP THE MONITOR. Sir, From the Paragraph in the Sydney Gazette of the 23rd instant, inserting four erroneous statements, 1st. that my men were in charge four days without my appearing against them, this falshood can be proved by several witnesses, particularly by the two constables, one who handcuffed them, and the other who remained all night with them, and brought them to Court on the 24th of April; I also attended the same morning and lodged my complaint against them; Doctor Harris ordered me to attend on the following Saturday; I did so, at a quarter past one o'Clock; this being rather late, the men made the best story they could for themselves and the business was decided; Michael Smith who lived with me &nbsp; for three years, on a re-hearing on the 12th instant, acknow &nbsp; ledged to the Bench that he always got his rations regular until the day he refused to go to Sydney for provisions; (Sa turday morning, 21st April) for which he and the other...

-- jtir 0armorh' Tftg Am F, BY LORD BYRON. (Continued.) But when the sun was sinking in the sea He seiz'd his harp, which he at times could string And strike, (albeit with untaught melody,) When deem'd he no strange ear was listening: And now his fingers o'er it he did fling, And tun'd his farewell in the dim twilight. While flew the vessel on her snowy wing, And fleeting shores receded from his sight, Thus to the elements he pour'd his last " Good Night." 1. " ADIEU, adieu! my native shore Fades o'er the waters blue; The Night -winds sigh, the breakers roar, And shrieks the wild sea-mew. Yon Sun that sets upon the sea We follow in his flight; Farewell awhile to him and thee, My native Land-Good Night t '2.

PUBLIC ADDRESSES. IT is our intention to review the three Public Addres Ses voted in this. Colony within the last two years at three several public Meetings of the Colony, as the subject matter thereof, being now before Parliament, will we trust be found most interesting; and it will be pleasing to re-consider the former sentiments of the Colonists on the' three grand subjects of, a free untaxed Press, Trial by Jury, and Legislation by Representation. Preparatory to such Review, we shall re-publish the three Addresses in the order in which they were voted. The following is the Address which was voted to Sir Thomas Brisbane.

To T?1E EDITOR OF THE MONITOR.. George. Street, June 11, 1S27. SIRn, Or the recent Appointments made by His Excel lency the Governor, I cannot say I approve of the wbole. To Francis Rossi receiving the situation of Comptroller of the Customs, I have no manner of objection Mr. Rossi has given up one situation (that of Superintendent of Police).to which as a Native of the South of Europe he opght never to have been appointed, and has received in lieu another, (and no doubt a better) which any man may fill; any man possessing common integrity. Of Mr. Arthur Pooley Onslow, however, we know as little as he knows of the Colony-he arrived from India the other day in the Rainbow, and can have no claim- i. e. no just claim,: on His Majesty's Colonial Government. Mr. Ouslow may have talents, but I am not aware that he has -now, are there not many men (mnen of talents too) in the Colony, who have been in it for years, who have served the Crown faithfully, and who have, in consequence, claims t...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 1827. A REMARKABLY well-written letter appeared in The Australian of the 1st instant, signed James Hardy Vaux. And as the Editor of that Journal has not thought pro per to notice it, we shall now take up the subject. The main facts described in the letter, are the following. That the said Vaux describes himself as an Emancipist-- that is to say, he was once a Prisoner of the Crown, but is now a free man. That he arrived the second time in the Colony, 17 years ago; i. e. 1810. That in 1819, he was made free by Governor Macquarie, by pardon, which pardon was confirmed by the Sovereign. That he was made free on account of his having faithfully served as Store-keeper in the Commissariat, on a salary and allow- ances, five years, and for serving judge Field subse- quently one year, by a special application of the latter gentleman to obtain his services.

' Tn: olltiwn1 n p 'dent observatiuhs on Colonial. Go-, . vernment are extracted from an elegant 'oration by Mr. De TVitt- Clinton, America, 1815.--"There is something in the nature of prosvincial Government, which tends to engender faction and to prevent the -expansion of the intellect. It inevitably creates two distinct interests; on regarding. the Colony as subservient in every respect to the mother country, and the other rising up in opposi-. tion to this assumption. The Governor and principal magistrates, who derive their appointments from an ex trinsic.source, feel independent of the people over whom they are placed. TaE annals of our Colonial state present a continual controversy between the ministers of the crown and the Representatives of the people. What did the Governor ..and Judges care for a country where they were strangers; where their continuance was transient, and to which they were attached by no tie that reaches the human heart ? Their 'offices emanated from anoth...
