TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. Sydney, August 25th, 1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 1 September 1828

To THE. EDITOR OF TIIR MONITOR.. Sin, Sydney, August 25th, 1828. HAVING observed in your last paper a few re- marks on the 73rd Regimuent, I must say you have not given them the merit due to them, as you are an old hand in the Country. I should like to know who made Sydney Streets and Hawkesbury Road ? and also who helped the Settlers to reap their har- vests, and put in their crops, not forgetting the pay master's hills ? and likewise who were the beginning of building decent houses and helped to build the Gene- ral Hospital, and paying 16s. per quart for rum ? This did all help the Colony. Then the race course, and our Colonel one of the foremost Subscribers, and though a father to his Regituent, he. was as kind to the people and good to the prisoners. And after all that was done, Serjeant Morrough was killed in York Street. I am an old hand, let old things rest, for if old grievances were thrown in peoples faces, things. might not look quite so well. I am, Sir, Your obedient serv...

,TO ADVERTISERS IN GENERAL, AND AGENTS OF SHIPS IN PARTICULAR. " e 1 feelit a duty weowe to ourselves, zp regard to the mercantile part of our labours, tosuggest to Ship-agents, Landholders, Merchants, Settlers, ?nd-.keepers, Mechanics, and other Advertisers in the public Journals .f this Colony, the superior advan tages of their advertisiug in a weekly paper, over their advertising exclu sively,. in Journals, one of which publishes three times a week, and the other twice. • For the same price that the Sydney Gazette charges an advertiser for publishing his Advertisement three times in one week, we carry on his Advertisement to the end of three weeks. Thus, if an Advertiser choose to publish his wishes in two ou4of the three Journals circulated in the Co lony, let him, (if lhe like) choose the Gazette or the Australian for one of the two. But where is the use of his laying out his money in both these Jou1rnals, whose rapidity of pubtca tion brings sis half-guinea to cornm ,pletion i...

NEWS BY THE BRITTANNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 6 September 1828

NEWS BY THE BRITTANN A. THis vessel left England the 14th of April. We have ourselves received papers up to the 30th of March only,,but some of our friends have them a week later. Nothing of importance seems to us to have transpired since the 25th of March, news up to.which period we gave the public thiee weeks ago. The Rus sians evidently intend going to war with Turkey, and publish the usual quantity of " good reasons" for shewing it: to be on their part a "just and neces sary war." England we apprehend will, if Tur key yield a little in . Greek inattcrs, remain neutral; for the present at least. • It does not appear how France feels. A tight little war.'on a pleasing lively scale, however, we should think, would be preferred by the Illiberals of France, in order to take the people's attention off from the prosecution of 'their ilomestic freedom. The Duke of Wellington's administration seems firm, not from its own intrinsic strength, but because there is no party in the State suff...

THE MONITOR. SATURDAY AFTERNOON, SEPTEMBER 6,1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 6 September 1828

THE MONITOR           SATURDAY AFTERNOON, SEPTEMBER 6, 1828.   Two Proclamations respecting the late killing of Terrence Rooney, have been pub- lished by the Government. We consider the second unconstitutional, and to display the character of the present administration. THE first Proclamation was strictly consti- tutional, but we thought at the time it was rather hasty. But we did not say so, because it was obviously intended to do good. In our opinion, however, it would have been bet- ter to delay all unusually strong feel- ing on the part of the Government on the late outrage, until the verdict of the Inquest had been pronounced. Then, in case that verdict had been against some person or per- sons unknown, the first Proclamation might have been made with unquestionable pro- priety. ONE strong measure generally requires to be suppolted by another. And this proves the danger of strong measures. Thus, becau...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY POLICE.- Thomas Turner, a ticket-of leave man and Over aer of the mason's gangs in Goverr. ment employ in Sydney, was handed up before the Bench, at the instance of Capt. Bunn, J. P. on a charge of impertinence to him, in his magisterial capacity, and with otherwise improper conduct.

The accused however, was not drunk, but for being out after hoiurs aiid absent from his proper employmend, Mr. 13B. dbtermined on sending him to the watch-house. His Worship afterwards visited the watch-house, to expostulate with Turner, 'upon the impropriety of his conduct. Until now, Turner had been guilty only ...

Juniper Hall, September 2, 1828. To THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. SIR, As you were the person who pressed upon me the advantages to myself 'and the Colony, by the erection of a Distillery for the manufacture of strong waters, to aid the languishing interests of our Colo nial agriculture, and which first induced me to invest my property in a Distilling concern. I now beg leave, through your intelligent Journal, to submit to the consideration of the public in general, and to the Government in particular, (the home Grvernmuent as .well as the Colonial,) the necessity there exists in the present distrcss ed state of this Colony, for using such means as nature has still left in our power to mitigate the evils of the approaching scarcity. The crops on Hunter's River, notwithstanding the strength of the new alluvial soils there, arefast giving way to the severity of the drought. These on the high lands from Appin to Windsor are gone.

CRIMINAL COURT.-MONDAY.- John Walsh was capitally indicted for shooting at and wounding Mr. George Barber, and robbing him. The prosecutor deposed that on the day laid in the indictment, as he was passing the Stone Quarry Creek in a direction towards his own house in Argyleshire, he heard the report of a discharge of fire arms, and in an instant of time found himself wounded in the back. Wit- ness fell back, and on recovering presently afterwards, found the prisoner standing over him. It was then day-light and witness had an opportunity of observing somewhat of the mans' features. Prisoner had either a musket or a gun in his left hand. Prisoner then re treated a few spaces back from the place witness first saw him in, and then demanded his money. Wit- ness told prisoner, he had none, and thereupon jump- ed out of his chaise, was making towards him, when he drew a pistol from his right hand waiscoat pocket, and presented the same at witness's breast,   who addressing pri...

Ma. COBBE~ITlro Tr DUUIE or WELLINGTON - (Casitledfrom NVo. 163, page 1298.) Thlisls a proposition that never cawbe adopted1 un accompanied by the other measures prayed for in'the Northunjberland Petition; and that those measures to any thing like an adequate extent, can ever be adopted without a reform of the Commons House of Parliament, I am perfectly convinced.. Now, -there fore, I am about to address you upon .that .subject, intending to show that such reform, - and that right - speedily, is both just and expedient. On the score of justice, appeals have, on both sides, been made to the ancient laws of.the coprntry. I shall make no such appeal, the circumstances having totally. changed. It is curious,, that when we appeal to the ancient law ind principles of the constitution, in cases' of the innumerable innovations, which have been con tinually taking place during the last forty years; when we say that standing armies and barracks; that trans portatioc for poaching; that, taking...
