English Miscellanies. LONDON, DECEMBER 18, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

LONDON, DECEMBER 18, 1825. TREATMENT OF MfR. 3UCKINGIIAM.-'l'he case of this gentleman will be brought forward at the India-house, on Wednesday nekt, by MR. HvME, the Mion. DOUGLAS KINNAIRD, and other public-spirited Proprietors of India Stock. On various occasions, we have felt it our duty, both as men and as journalists, to call the attention of the public to the grievous wrongs heaped upon MR. BUCKINGIAM by the Indian Authorities; and we cannot persuade ourselves that the clear proofs which have been offered of his unmerited inflictions will have failed to produce a conviction in the minds of all disinterested persons, that the character of the country will be tarnished if something like justice be not dealt out to the sufferer. The FREE PRESS of England will indeed sadly neglect its duty, if it does not put forth its power,--and great is that power,-and advocate the iause of a man of talent and integrity, who has done nothing but that which should most especially recommend him t...

Parliamentary Intelligence. (Debates continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

Parliamentary Intelligence. (Debates continued from our last.)     HOUSE OF COMMONS, March 16.– Mr. Canning con- tinued.– He was aware that with respect to the last point alluded to in the order in council – the right of slaves to purchase their own or the freedom of their chil- dren – government had gone beyond the general assent of the West India body, whilst they had fallen short of the desires of some persons. (Hear.) He knew very well that an hon. gentleman opposite (Mr. Buxton) last year stated that he was disposed to go a shorter way to work, and to enact the emancipation of a particular race of slaves. (He Mr. Canning) felt bound to declare, that with the most sincere desire to come to a conclusion most convincing to himself, and most favourable to the cause of humanity, he could not concur in the hon. mem- ber's proposition. If it were carried into effect, it would be productive of the greatest injury, not only to the white population, but also to ...

S" GRAMMAR SCHOOL. THE singular Trustees of this singnlar heels-over head Institution, "the scorn, as an institution, of every man in the colony, who estimates a professors' chair, to. be worth more than a shilling, was held at the house of the head master yesterday. The demon of discord had fled, and every worthy governor had received such entire satisfaction, at some late decisions in the Supreme Court,. that nothing but the most loving harmony prevailed. TuE Rev. Laurence Halloran, L. L. D. received an advance of a quarter's salary, in consideration of his invaluable services. Mr. Cape Jun. was unanimously elected second master. The medals of rewards to scho lars were awarded, or former awards were confirmed.. A committe of six was appointed to see that the new school be built without funds, with the utmost des patch-and the judicious resignation of Colonel Mills was accepted.

To the Editor of the MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

To the Editor of the MONITOR. Sixn, .IN your first number, you mention the impropriety of settlers returning their servants to government in a state of nudity. You would have ascertained, had you taken the trouble to enquire, that for one prisoner returned to them in rags, they send out twenty. Agreeably to the general orders on the subject, 1 applied for two ploughmen, a gardiner, and cook. Some time afterwards I received a London pick-pocket, who never, as he has since acknowledged, did a day's work in his life, until he came here; and a groom. The men were in such a state, as (to use the sea phrase), to require new rig ging, having neither shoes nor blankets. Shortly afterwards another man was sent to me, not of the description applied for, but an old man-of-wars-man, and all the clothes he had on him was a very old frock, and an o'd pair of trowsers, out at both knees, and a straw hat that at one time had a rim round it. The district constable declared to me, that he would not h...

THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS, ALTHOUGH WRITTEN IN LONDON, SO FAR BACK AS 1822, ARE NOT WITHOUT INTEREST TO THE PRESENT GROWERS OF WOOL, IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

"IN the year 1817, the expediency of imposing a duty on the importation of -foreign wool,. was strongly. insisted uyon in tlte.House of Commons by Mr. Weston, and, in consequence f the discussion which took place, it was thought prudent to eje? him, explaining how severely this tax wouild operate upon so distant a Colony as New South Wales ; and how com pletely it would check the exertions which were making to raise fine Merino wool, as an exportt to tle'preseiht'colny. MR Western replied, that the colonists need feel no alarm from his views, vWihli were olnf1 tb&lnxposb the dutpdi 'wool of. foreign States,-not upon the produce of British settle ments.

(Continued from our Paper No. 4.) OUR HUNTER'S RIVER CORRESPONDENT THUS CONTINUES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

(Continued from our Paper No.. 4.) OUR HUNTER'S RIVER CORRESPONDENT THUS CONTINUES. FROM Nelson's Plains, we proceeded early in the morning to Wallis's Plains, and there breakfasted. The. navigation of Hunter's River may be said to terminate at this place, which provincially is called " the Settle ment at the Banks." It consists of a cluster of detach ed cottages, which may be designated a hamlet.--You' would suppose the inhabitants were only tenants at will, who did not care to build on other people's ground.. It's a sorry sight'to see bad buildings any where, and its very grating to an Englishman when he leaves the dusty streets to take a turn amongst the rural virtues of a. village life, there to find nothing of the sort.. At this; distance from Sydney I indulged a hope of growing. quite poetical, and seeing Pan and the sylvan deities,. dryads and hamadryads-but there was no such thing- perhaps it is, that they are like the kangartoos, frighteRedi at the approach of settlers or t...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1826. PROSTITUTION OF THE PRESS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

THE MONVITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1826. PROSTITUTION OF THE PRESS IN NEW SOUTH WVALES. WE have to record with pain a second instance of. the gross prostitution of the Press in New South Wales. Much to their credit, the Proprietors of the' tiree Presses in Sydney deny any knowledge of the ipub lication we now allude to. It was a printed hand-bill, purporting to give a description in the vulgar, racing style, of those unfortunate females who live in a state of public disgrace. We are well aware that such publica tions were the common accompaniaments of races in England thirty years ago. But as England has been gradually improving in morals the last half century, owing to the spread of methodism out of the church,and evan gelical principles within it,, we had been in hopes that such infamous publications, together with all the grosser obscenities of. Bartholomew Fair, had gradually disap peared from the Race-course. The Sons of Belihl how ever, have not only insulted this wholesIome commu...

'To the Editor of the "MorToR," -who will favour a 'constant -reader by inserting the following, in his next papeFr. Trait is nothing more detiiable than hiypocrisy, and bare-faced impudent hypocrisy, is always tn thousand times worse than open vice. The streets of 'London nightly pour forth swarms of abandoned women. Children and the most innoecent meet them every where, ,know their character, and yet are not contaminated. In .Paris the most voluptuous and licentious City in the Sworld vice is altogether concealed from the eye, and strangers would hardly believe the scenes that are there 'hourly carried on; and yet it is a well-known fact, that the morals of the Parisians generally, as compared with ,the morals of the inhabitants of London, are lower and miore debased than it is almost possible to conceive. I have MR. MONITOR, heen led to these remarks in order: to prove that the List of Sporting Characters so par ticularly and frequently mentioned in the last and pteceed ing moral...

THE SECOND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

Tt THE SECOND CONCERT. WVE perceive this species of public recreation will suc ceed. Great praise is due to the persons who undertook ºr the management of it. They have performed their difficult task with great adroitness. We did not count the assembly, but we suppose there were 250 persons of both sexes present. The ladies were not far behind the gentlemen in number. We noticed Colonel and Cap h tain Dumeresq, Captain Piper and family, Dr Douglas, Mr. Garling and family, Mr. Browne, Mr. Mills, Mr. s Norton and family, several magistrates, and many of f the most respectable merchants of Sydney. The room r was elegantly if not superbly lighted up, and the decora tions were in the same character of chaste simplicity. The apartment was not a foot too large, even on the present occasion. It will soon be too small. If the f seats had not been pretty closely arranged together, the space for passing to and fro, would have been greatly contracted.. Their closeness however, was of great in i...

THE RACES. FRIDAY, the 16th. SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

THE RACES. FRIDAY, the 16th. SECOND DAY. This day's races surpassed those of the first, as well for diversion as the number of the spectators. The weather was most delightful, which caused the ground to be covered with beaus and belles. It was gratifying to behold the number of gentlemen's carriages of every description, the result of industry and a liberal govern- ment. The scenery around our new course is very pleasing, particularly that part of it adjoining Grose Farm, which displays the appearance of Old England so much, that really at first sight one would suppose our- selves in the tight little island. At an early hour, every thing in the race way was in movement, and notwith- standing the large mass of beholders present, we have not heard of any material accident. The ground was rather heavy running for the Horses, in consequence of the precedcing night's rain. Spinks is so superior a rider, he has a decided advantage over the other jockies, who would do well to imitate his m...

To the Editor of the MONITOR, [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

To the Editor of the Monitor, WHATEVER may be urged against races as a system, I can- not but acknowledge, that I was excessively deligted on Wed nesday and Friday the 14th and 16th. The concourse of people, of all descriptions, brought together from all quarters, I considered the most amusing scene I have witnessed for many a day, and I cannot but admire the cause, though so much has been said in deprecation of it. In Sydney, where there is such an entire absence of public diversion, we should not be such professed enemies to racing, were we even thoroughly convinced of its impropriety for I am inclined to believe, that public recreation is essential, if not to the pro sperity, at least to the happiness of a people. I really believe, that if some place of public amusement were opened, the scenes of drunkenness and debauchery, which we too often witness, would seldom occur. At the races, happiness was depicted on all countenances, and I for my own part, received more pleasure in con...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

JUST as we were going to press, a gentleman of talent presented us with the above letter for insertion. WE totally differ from him in opinion, on almost every point. We have room, however, but for one refutation. The streets of the great towns in England at night, by the presence of prostitutes, have contaminated, and will contaminate thousands who, had the streets been purged of such walking pestilencies, would have remained in nocent. The age, however, is yet too gross, too bar- barous, and too impious, to clear the streets of such nuisances it Europe The pretence in England, that to apprehend such wretched wanderers, would be incon sistent with civil liberty, is mere cant. Civil liberty, rightly interpreted, and as distinct from licentiousness, is the power to do every thing whose tendency does not injure your neighbour. Thus, freedom of discussion, while the public good is promoted, is lawful--but free dom to stab your neighbour's character is unlawful. Freedom for all His Majes...

To the Editor of the MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

To the Editor of the MONITOR. SIR, " So a public orator is a private individual," were the words, if I recollect aright, of the Gazette. Well then, an editor of a newspaper ought not to be (and never is, save in New South Wales,) indentified with any person whatever. Will this do for the Gazette, the strictly logical Gazette? It is not worth while to shew, that a public orator may be a private individual; it will suffice to say, that any individual, however low his de gree, whether gentleman, tailor, or butcher, it mattered not, might have rose up and harrangued the " County Meeting," as long as he pleased. Say, however, what you will, reason or folly, it is alike indifferent to the editor of the Gazette. The lion of the forest can with difficulty be tamed when arrived at maturity; so man, when his innate propensities to folly, have remained unchecked, can with equal difficulty be made to act according to reason. Not that I would by any means insinu- ate, that the editor of the Sydn...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

A correspondent writes as follows.--An error has crept into the columns of the Australian, relative to the Sur veyer General's Department. So far from all the Sur veyors receiving 350l. per Annum, each, there is not one of them whose salary exceeds 250l; one has 200l. a year, another 150l. and two 100l. each. There are seven Surveyors I believe. IT is worthy of remark, that the average wages of Journeymen Tailors, &c, in Sydney, is 7s. 6d. per diem. No doubt all will speedily be set to rights. THE wind-up of the sporting season on Monday was accompanied by some outrages not experienced on either of the principal race days. A gang of eight or ten   ruffians began to lose their patience at so much good order, and as their last stake, pursued, towards night, their lawless courses on the road returning to Sydney. An elderly couple named Fry, and a solitary passenger, have been subjected to their violence, attended with some circumstances of aggravation. Two of the m...
