[Fno TiHE PiMORNING ERALD.] Some further accounts ihave :,been 'receivedr.' from Jamaica to-day, tihel~ittest dates reaclin::: down to the 25th of July.- . We are glad to state. that although the period was.drawing v:ery: near when the important, change was to be made ia.,,r the condition of the slave population, the colony remained tranquil, and a full expectation •ap peared to be entertained that the.first of August . would pass off without any display on the Hart-. of the negroes tending to a breach of the public peace. The Marquis of Sligo, in order to cone ciliate, as far as consistent, even the discontented slaves, had directed a proclamation to'be issued, offering pardon to all those who had absconded from the estates to which they belonged, on con sideration that they returned on or before the 1 St :';:i of August. The best feeling appeared to' exist between the British and American naval officers;'?,i off Jamaica. It is stated that two American?:i: frigates in the neighbour...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SYDNEY GAZETTE. Internal Revenue Office, Sydney, 22nd January, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SYDINEY GAZETTE. Interial Revenue Office, Sydney, 22nd January, 1835. Sxn.--I observe tlhat there is.'a mistake in the date of the notice respecting the redemption of Quit Rents published in your paper of this day: being dated 18th January, 1835, instead of 18th February, 1834. Permit me to request that you will correct this in your next paper, as it is calculated to mislead the Public, and lead them to suppose that Quit Rents may be redeemed at ten years' purchase, if this is done within twelve months from the present time. Whereas the purport of the republication of the No tice, dated 18th February, 1834, in The Government Gazette, is to remind the Public, of the near approach of the termination of the year allowed for the Re demption of Quit Rents at ten years purchase: after the 18th of February, 1835, the old system is re verted to, and Quit Rents cannot be redeemed, but by payment of twenty years' purchase. By all the recent Deeds of Grant of Town Allot me...

WESTERN AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

WESTERN AFRICA. TEi accounts from the River Gambia give an interesting account of the present condition of the .settlement of Bathurst. 1 he latitude of Bathurst is 130 29' and 30-69ths of a mile north of'the Equator; the longitude, 160 35' west of Lon don. The settlement contains a population of 2700 souls. The whites are under 100. This colony has been in possession of the English for nearly 20 years. The chief buildings are, a Go vernment house, barracks, hospital, jail, and thirty good brick and stone houses, and stores, owned and occupied by the merchants, and 400 or 500 huts, inhabited by blacks and liberated Africans who have been recaptured from slavers. There is no church or meeting-house, especially erected and dedicated to those purposes. Divine worship is, however, performed every Sunday by an Episcopalian clergyman in a small inconve nient place, capable of holding only 40 or 50 persons, and this fills very badly. The Wesley an Missionary Society of London have establis...

Colonial Statistics. BRITISH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

BRITISH AMERICA. QUEBEC papers to the 1st of August have been received. The health of many of the villages in the neighbourhood was not so good as usual. The revenue levied at the port of Quebec had fallen considerably below that of preceeding years. No return had been made from Montreal, but it was expected there would be a similar deficiency there. Partial rains had fallen at Quebec and relieved the extreme drought. The crops and grass had suffered from the heat, but not mate rially. It was many years since so long a drought had been experienced in that quarter. The health of the town was improving.

CANNON CASTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

CANNON CASTING.. THE government foundry for casting brass ordnance was formerly situated in Moorfields. *The process of casting the cannon was then an object of curiosity to the inhabitants of the metropolis; many of whom of all classes, frequently attended while the metal was poured into the moulds. The injured cannon which had been taken from the French in the succes ful campaigns of the Duke of Marlborough, amount ing to a considerable number, had been placed before the foundry in the adjacent artillery ground, and it was determined in 1716 to recast those cannon. On the day appointed for doing so, a more than usual number of persons assembled to view the process. Many of the nobility and several general officers were present, and for their accommodation temporary gal leries were erected near the furnaces. Among the com pany was Andrew Schalch an intelligent young Swiss, who was at the foundry at an early hour; and having been permitted minutely to inspect the works, detect ed so...

PSALM CXLVII. E-:F'rom Specimens of an Improved Metrical Version of the Psalms of David, proposed for the Use of the Presby terian churches in the Australian colonies.] PRAISE ye the Lord: 'tis good to sing The praises of our heavenly king. Be this, my soul, thy sweet employ, Thy welcome task, thy chiefest joy1. The Lord builds up Jerusalem, And gathers all who love his name, T1hough scatter'd o'er the world around, To Zion's blest and holy ground.. iHe healeth all the broken hearts, And balsam to their wounds imparts. He numbers yonder starry frames, And calls them by their several names. Great is the Lord, and great his might;' His wisdom ' vast and infinite; IIe lifts the meek from depths profound, i3But casts the wicked to the ground. Sing to the Lord a grateful song; With tuneful harp his praise prolong, Whose gathering clouds discharge their rain :, To make the mountains green again. He gives the beast of prey his food, And satisfies the raven's brood. He daily hears their pla...

STATE OF GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

STATE OF GREECE. OFF MYTELENE, JULY 5.-Sir Josias Rowley, who seems to enjoy good health, and wilo has still an ac tive mind, seldom remains a week in one place, and exercises his ships in manoeuvring and sailing when ever he is under weigh. The Thunderer decidedly bears the palm among the two-deckers, and the Bri tannia beats the, three-decked ships on all points. The Britannia is ordered home, having served out her period. Our short stay at Smyrna was caused by a report that the plague had appeared in the town, but it proved to be mild, and not spreading. We are all in high health and efficiency, and find the weather in the Archipelago very cool and pleasant compared with that at Malta. The latest intelligence from Samos states that the inhabitants of that island had laid down their arms, and received the Turks, lauding their clemency. During our sojourn at Napoli, a very interesting trial was going on in the Court-house, which proved quite a lozenge to the officers of the squadro...

English Extracts. LORD BROUGHAM ON THE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

LORD BROUGHAMI ON THE EDUCATION OF THE PEOPLE. 'ur full and adequate discharge of our duty to the Government and the country, requires from us the most marked attention to so.much of the evidence of the Lord Chancellor before the Select Committee on the Law of 'Libel, as relates to the effects of the stamp duty, on' newspapers. There is no man in ]England better acquainted with the progress of edu cation among the people, or the effects which any rgode of public instruction will have on the public mind, than Lord Brougham. To the education of the lower classes was 'all the energy of his great and comprehensive mind directed during the greater part of his long and illustrious parliamentary career; and hence, his opinions are not those of an enthusiastic theorist, who supports a system constructed in igno rance of that .world upon whose prejudices it is ex pected to operate;' but the matured' deliberations of a philosopher, whose every proposition has been con firmed by experience.

PARLIAMENTARY PAPER ON DRUNKENNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

PARLIAMENTARY PAPER ON. DRUNKENNESS. Oun friend Mr. Buckingham, from whom we differ considerably in the shade of our politics, but whose excellent qualities of mind and heart must win the esteem of all who know him, has addressed to us, in common with other Editors, a letter vindicating the Report of the Committee on Drunkenness, which was drawn up by him as chairman, from the ridicule and obloquy which have been thrown upon it. We need scarcely say that we are not of those who think this subject unworthy of the attention of the legisla ture. So far from it, that we can scarcely imagine how any man can hold that opinion, unless he is in profound ignorance of the devastation which this vice is producing in the land, or is utterly indifferent, not only to the morals, but to the comfort and happiness of the community. We most heartily concur in the opinion, that a vice which is proved to demonstration to be the cause of more misery, crime, pauperism, sick ness, insanity, and premature ...

NOTHING can be more clear, and yet nothing apparently is less thought ot; than that Great :Britain is approaching some great crisis, or re volution, or to describe it in the most gentle terms, some change in the constitution of its government. We are not by any means ex periencing " the torrent's smoothness ere it dash below:" we are shooting along a series of rapids, foretelling the more abrupt descent down which ,we.are about to be precipitated. It may be that the alterations about to take place will be attended with no violence either to persons or property; but that some alteration; exceeding all that has taken place. since the grand change of the mo 'narchical principlei n 1688, is aboutto happen, no man who looks carefully to passing events and circumstances, and studies the mood of the majority of the British people, can fail to observe. During the whole period of the agitation for the: 'reform bi...
