TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 22 October 1835
, TO COR'. ESPONDENTS. Investigator who invites our attelntion to a Port Afacquarie , Article in Tuesday's Gazette attacking the character and impugning the impart ality of Judge Burton, is informed that we consider the article totally unwor thy our notice. It carries-as articles from that quar ter generally do-its own antidote along with it. Judge Burton's character stands too pre-eminently high, to be injured by anything from such a source. Investigator asks whether it is the fact, as asserted in The Sydney Gazette, that Dr. Lang. is on such intimate terms with Judge Burton? Our answer is. it contains about as much truth as statements in that veracious paper usu ally do. We are sorry we cannot insert A Blind man's Poem.

Religious Intelligence. ON THE STATE OF RELIGION IN FRANCE. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 22 October 1835
i eligious EItetglitg rce. ON TIIE .STATE OF RELIGION IN SFRANCE, [ RO:M rTHE CIHRISTIAN OBSERVER.] ' [OOT~CLUDED;] IT is :chiefly towards France, and the evange lizing of that country, that the eyes of Genevese Christians are turned. On this subject the Rev. L. Gaussen, the intimate friend of many Chris tian brethren in England arid Scotland, in ad dressing the meeting held under the presidency. of Colonel Tronchin de Lavigny, remarked : It is impossibl ?to shut one's eyes to the fact that an immense harvest is ripening in France". Within a few days avenues have been opened which for more than three centuries had been blocked up. 'The distribu tion of Bibles, so long prohibited under pain of death, and always more or less opposed since the reign of the Valois line, takes, place now under the protection, in some: cases even with the concurrence, of.the civil authorities; the hostility, too, of three centuries, on the part of the Crown has ceased.

Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 22 October 1835
THE following is a copy of the letter which ap pears to have called forth Mr. Marshall's epistle, publishied in our last number but one, on the subject of Female Emigration. After the dis closures that have been made in this colony, it is quite preposterous for Mr. Marshall to disclaim the title of a mercenary jobber. He is not particu larly. fond of that appellation, it is true: but it is equally true that he richly deserves it. The follow ing. letter was intended for circulation, but was never published. A copy of it, however, seems to have found its way into the pages of The Mfonmi tor, where Mr. Marshall had seen it. The interval that has elapsed since its- appearance in the co lumns of our contemporary has not rendered its statements less accordant with'the facts of the case, or less- adapted. to the exigencies of the moment.
