THE MONITOR. THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 22, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 June 1827

THE M1ONZLITOR*. THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 22, 1827. WE shall now proceed with our review of the Ad dresses and Petition to our Governors and the King and Parliament. And on perusing them once more, we do congratulate the Colony on the remarkable consistency which prevails in thein. Public bodies are not always so steady and uniform in their decisions as is desirable. Their variations are sometimes the effect of new views of the question, and sometimes of having ascertained new facts. B3ut when the facts and the sentiments of public meetings at distant periods, each meeting being eptirely independent of each other, and when it was competent for the dissentients at the first mxeting to make a renewed stand on the passing of similar resolutions'at' the subsequent meetings, and yet the results were all the 'same, it looks well. The consistency of the Addresses and Petition is not confined to the substance of them, but extends even to the tone and cast of sentiment. No thing can exceed the...

(Rural Ride, continued from Page 453.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 June 1827

S'Rural Ride, continuerfrous Page 453.) "The Doctor , says, that a district., of thirty square "miles .was withdrawn from - cultivation, and con 'F verted into a wilderness." Now, what Hume meaned by the loose phrase, " an extent of thirty miles," I cannot say; but 'this I know, that Dr. Lingard's " thirty square miles," is a piece of ground onlyfive and a half miles each way ! So that the Doctor has got here, a curious " district," and a not less curious " wilderness"; and, what number of churches could WxILLIA find, to burn, in a space five miles and a half each way ? If the Doctor meaned thirty miles square instead of square miles, the falsehood is so monstrous as to destroy his credit for fever; for, here we have NINE HUNDRED SQUARE -MILES, containingfive hundred and seventy six thousand acres of land.; that is to say, 56,960 acres more than are contained in the whole country of Surry, and .99,840 acres more than are contained in the whole of the couutry of Berks !

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 June 1827

ENGLISrH MISCELKLAN.IES. ECONOMICAL WVINDMILLS.-Since the general introduction of steam-engines, the use of wind, as a moving power for machines, has been much neglected in England. The French, who study economy to a great degree in the construction of machinery, are beginning to bring the power of wind into more general use in agriculture, &c. The Society for the Encouragement of Agriculture at Chartres have given a prize of 4000 francs to M. De La Molere, for the construction of a solid and economical windmill, capable of being applied to rural labours. The inventor sells these mills at the following prices :-A one-horse power, which will turn a stone of thirty inches in diameter, 161.; and with a regulator, 241. ; a two horse power, or a stone of thirty-six inches, 241. ; and 361. with a regulator. These machines are made portable, to move to any part of the farm, to raise water for draining, irrigation &c. Machines of three-horse and four-horse power, to turn sto...

BY LORD BYRON. (Continued.) xx. Then slowly climb the many-winding way, x. And frequent turn to linger as you go, ' From loftier rocks new loveliness survey, And rest ye at our " Lady's house of woe ;" Where frugal nionks their little relics show, Arid siindry lgeinds to the stranger tell : - Here impious men have punish'd been, and lo! Deep in yon cave Honorius long did dwell, In hope to merit Heaven by making earth a Hell. XXI And here and there, as up the crags you spring, Mark many rude-carv'd crosses near the path: Yet deem not these devotion's offering These are memorials frail of murderous wrath: For wheresoe'r the shrieking victim hath Pour'd forth his blood beneath the assassin's knife, Some hand erects a cross of mouldering lath; And grove and glen with thousand such are rife Throughout this purple land, where law secures not life.

June 18th, 1827. SIR, -To THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. I regret that business should have intervened to prevent nme from returning, at .an earlier day, my hearty thanks to Juvenis, for the alacrity which he has evinced in promoting a taste for enquiry into causes and effects :--a taste which if properly directed and encou raged cannot fail of producing the most happy effects in this truly Arcadian clime, where every thing conspires to fertilize the human faculties. I shall however solicit the indulgence of your very sensible and erudite correspond ent, and beg that he will not deem me either captious or irreligious, when I declare myself dissatisfied with his preternatural solution of my proposition, which, however seemingly unaccountable from natural causes, I am per suaded was effected without the aid of miraculous agency. The "astus decessus" spoken of by Livy, I do not regard in the light of a regular ebb, although it is evident that it was a partial one, and whatever views Provid...

Now, Mr. Editor, land and houses are capital of the most unequivocal kind. I may borrow cash,, and while it is in my possession, it is mine. But I cannot borrow assignments of houses aud lands.

Quiz Alley, Sydney, June 22, 1827. To THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. SIR, The Australian has lately occupied its columns with be-praising individuals, such as Lieut. Fitzgerald, Dr. Harris, Mr. Scott, Mr. Wemyss, &c. &c. If he be paid for inserting in his columns these be-laudiigs, why one cannot find much fault. But then let him not support his panegyrics with statements that are notoriously false. For instance ,Lieut. Fitzgerald' may be an excellent officer, and is so no doubt--but then it is all entirely false about bushrangers at Illawarra. There never were any in that district. The hue and cry was raised by the gentlemen there, who greatly like the soldiers to over awe their Convict-servants, because the King pags for them. Then as to old Dr. Harris, he himself quite blushes at the farcical compliments passed on him. The old gentleman knows as much of the law now, as he did 30 years 'ago--that is to say, very little. He a loss to Parramatta! Pray have.the two Doctor...

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 26 June 1827

ENGLISH IYIISSCELLANIESS. MR. William Lee, the High Constable of Westminister, Pas just published a brief history, in verse, of events which' have taken place connected with an application imi de by him for a temuneration f r his general services for the las ten years, and especially from the members of the two houses of Parliament. It is really distress ing to find that this useful servant of the public cannot obtain the very' moderate 'pittance which he asks, and which the House of Commons seemed disposed to give, -till Mr. Banks frightened them out of their generosity by some formal objections. It is not the least pitiable circumstance in this case, that poor Lee should have been driven to write bad verses, instead of contenting himself with being an 'excellent High-constable.--Times.

THE MONITOR. TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 26, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 26 June 1827

,THE ~LMONITO'.t'. TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE '26, 18'7. A ticket-of-leave man was lately convicted before Dr. Dalhunty, of selling spirits without. a license, and a question arose whether he should be punished as a free man or as a prisoner. Dr. D. with great propriety de clineddetermining a question himself which involved the personalliberty of so uumerous, and Ave will add, so decent a class .of our singularly constituted socSiety as the ticket-of-leave men; great numbers of whom have wives and families depending for support on the indul gence being continued to them. THE offence of selling spirits without a license, in our opinion, is one fraught with many evil consequences. It is a fraud on the Revenue. It is a fraud on the honest men who [pay the license-money. And it inevitably 19ads a man to tolerate things being done in his house, which a respectable publican needs not to stoop to. So far we consider it an offence of magnitude. BUT it is an offence which even the laws of England...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 26 June 1827

The Australian of the 22nd. of June, gives an account of the encaging of a negro in Jamaica, where he was left to die of hunger (the cage being suspended' to a tree) for having killed his Overseer. The birds of prey picked the eyes out of his head, and the flesh off his bones through the.bars of his cage, while swarms of insects were feasting on the lacerated and inflamed flesh. " How " long have you hanged there" ? said the traveller- " Two days-and me no die !--the birds-the birds Ah me !" Awful cruelty ! almost equal to the 500 lashes inflicted on the one armed convict shepherd the other day -for having killed an Overseer no-but for merely saying to his Overseer, that when his master entrusted him with his sheep in lambing time, during which season he had an opportunity of injuring him so deeply, it was absurd to deny him plenty of food! Our Emigrant Convict-drivers justified this cruelty on precisely the same grounds as the Planters of Jamaica justified the encaging of the unhap...
