THE CANTON. &nbsp; SEVERAL of the passengers who arrived in this colony by the ship Canton, desirous of expressing their gratitude to Mr. Mordaunt, first, and Mr. Smith, the second officer of that vessel, for the kindness with which they had been treated by them during the voyage from London to this port, resolved to present some memorial to them expressive of their regard. A collection was accordingly made, and two silver snuff boxes were presented to them; that of Mr. Mordaunt bearing the following inscription:- Presented to John Mordaunt, Esq., chief officer of the ship Canton, by several of the passengers, as a mark of their respect for him as a seaman and a gen- tleman, and in gratitude for his kindness on the pas- sage from London to Sydney. &nbsp; &nbsp; New South Wales, October 1835.

Original Correspondence. IMMIGRATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 October 1835
Igii. o a. . ., pon.ec.... SIMMIGRATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. SmI,--I am perhaps writing premasturely, not !having seen the whole'of the Report of. the Im 'migration Committee,. but as I apprehend that they. bave merely considered the appointment of agents in England, and' the appropriation of so fmuch per head for a passage, without at all enteiing into the minute arrangements necessary ito: securea aContintious, immigration, I ventuire to 'offer some suggestions on the subject. It appears to me that the Colonial Government should be come the principals in the scheme of Immigration, and without regarding expense or 'fixing the passage of emigrants at so much per head, that they should at once proceed to charter vessels, and to convey emigrants to the colony in a man ner so comfortable and satisfactory as to induce othe,s to follow, when a report of the treatment of a few ship-loads of emigrants has got into circulation in Erigland; and this is absolutely necessary if a mo...

BIRMINGHAM POLITICAL UNION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 October 1835
BIRMINGHAM 1POLITICAL' UNION. : PROM THE TIMES OF MAY 29.] Ir proofs be wanted by any of, our more sceptical readers,; thtat the spirit of anarchy is on the wane in England; we beg leave to refer them 'to" an account of a'meeting,'or attempted. meeting, of the scattered fragments of the old Birmingham Political -Union, tlie desigi' of which was to revive, if possible; that defunct and'to any good purpose, save in times of extreme yemergency, that needless aiid dangerous association. ' Some worthies were for summoning the known' leaders of-the' confederacy to put themselves at' the' head of-: the people-whether to= levy war against the King,'and subvert the monarchy, was not openly stated. - However, the question being opened, it appeared that discord and rottenness had eaten into the entrails of.-this ivigorouis and. virtuous league that' large .debts: had been. contracted.--that large debts had led. the.;way to liberal defections of the honourable members-that trades' unions lhad w...
Literature and Science. COW-POX. [CONCLUDED.] EXTENT OF THE SECURITY AFFORDED BY VACCINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 October 1835
tcow-POX. [FROM DR. MIACAULAY S MEDICAL DICTIONARY.]' SVACCINATION. tt. l FROM the ample experience and- observation of- Dr. Thomson and others, it.is now considered as: estab lished, that a person may have small-pox twice; arid that a first attack, though it lessens, does' not altogether destroy the susceptibility of the same in dividual to a second attack.. That a second attack may appear, either in a regular form of small-pox or in some of its modifications, swine-pox, hives, &c,: That small-pox, and at least some other eruptive diseases, are produced by the same specific conta gion;, and that the diseases produced by it are, modified by various causes, as peculiarity of consti 'tution, the severity of the epidemic, or by the patient having undergone some previous eruptive disease, which had power to protect the system from the 'usual severity of small-pox: That cow-pox possesses this protecting power in a remarkable degree, as the body which has been subjected to it will...
