(Extract from a Letter of a Correspondent at Newcastle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 26 June 1827

Extract from a Letter of a Correspondent at Newcastle, " The only settlement in the Colony that contributes to any extent by the labour of the prison population towards its local expenditure is, I believe, Newcastle; the coals procured at that place being annually from three to four thousand tons, for which Government receive at the rate of 10s. 6d. sterling per ton; and yet there is no settlement in the Colony where the comforts or RIGHTS of the prisoners in Government em- ploy seem to be so little attended to. "IT is seldom that their slop clothing is issued to them until a month or two after it is due; the barracks now occupied by them, I understand, have been for a considerable time past condemned as incapable of repair, and yet no steps have since been taken to provide suitable accommodation- and during the late heavy rains, there poured such a torrent through the roof as that the miserable wretches within would have been just as well sheltered in the barrack yard. A re- presen...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 26 June 1827

- DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. THE Cutter Speedwell, sailed for Port Macquarie last week, with provisions, slops, &c. for the use of the Set tlement, . The Beef sent was Irish. and American ; the lat ter we are informed was of exceedingly inferior quality, so much so, as that it will not be any matter of surprise, if' it is refused as unservicable. The quantity of pro visions sent to the out Settlements generally, we have a reason to believe is for the most part of a very inferior description, siych as would not at all " pass" in Sydney. Salt provisions even if good are not wholesome to live on perpetually. At any rate the scale of rations demand that it should be something else, than what is among those who eat it aptly termed " mahogany." WE felt ourselves astonished beyond measure, on perusing -an advertisement of the Bank of New South Wales, declaring the intention of that Establishment to assimilate their holidays with those of the Bank of Anstralia. The Old Bank, the standar...

(Rural Ride, continued from Page 462.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 26 June 1827

(Rural Ride, continuedfrom Page 462E) t So that, the views from this place are the most beautiful that can be imagined. You see up the water and down the water, t0 Redbridge on one way, and out to Spithead the other way Through the trees, to the right, you see the spires of South- ampton, and you have only to walk a mile over a beautiful   lawn and through a not less beautiful wood, to find, in a little dell surrounded with lofty woods, the venerable ruins of Netley Abbey, which make part of Mr. Chamberlayne's estate. The woods here are chiefly of oak; the ground con- sists of a series of hill and dale, as you go long-wise from one end of. the estate to the other, about sixi miles in length. Down almost every little valley that divides these hills or hillocks, there is more or less of water, making the under- wood, in those parts, very thick, and dark to go through, and these form the most delightful contrast with the fields and lawns. There are innumerable vessels of v...

THE MONITOR. THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 28, 1827. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR, [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 28 June 1827

THRE VION.1V'1RL. THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE ~2, 1827. To THE EDITOR OF THL MONITOR, * SIR, I baso to lay before you and the public the following particulars. On Thursd:ay morning last; my overseer, ,Robert Hesketh, a free man, was selling my butter, in the usual manner, in Sydney' Market, assisted by anotiher of my servants. About ten o'clock, I received a message from IIesketh that he was put into the watch house. I went to the New Police OfIic., and found my servant already under examination, and a commissioned officer, belonging to the gairrison, was giving evidence as to his offence. The substance of the officer's evidence, and of the witnesses examined, was nearly as follows. A wife of a soldier had complained to the officer early in the-morning, in the market, that Ilesketh hal received a dollar from her, and afterwards denied receiving it ; and so would give her neither butter nor cihange. The wo man complained to the officer, who accordingly went to IIesketh, and civilly asked ...

Letter to Miss—, of South Creek, continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 28 June 1827

Letter to Miss - , of South Creek, continued. I HAD flattered myself with the hope of seeing my old beau, Paul Tomkins, here, (poor Tomkins, what'll he say   when he hears of my dancing about with young Withers ?) but found he was down at the Five Islands. I sent up to Sarah Toinkins to know where he was, and she wrote me a line which dissipated the flattering illusion. I was on the point of carrying 1the tea to my mouth, when I read the fatal .arngraraph. I could not help exclaiming, " my cup is indeed a bitter one ;" upon which that civil. smirking, toad eating Mlrs. Anderson said, " Is it. my love ? then why not take another lump of sugar ?" Father asked young Withers to dine with us to-day; we'd music before dinner. I forgot to tell you, that Papa's engaged a master for me, and bought me a new instrument, 'one of Broadwood's ! he's the fitst maker in the world, they say.

MW WBSTZC IzNr'aZL.ZiGeC.. WB briefly mentioned lately, that the plot of ground on which the market house &e. stands, had found a new claimant. It appears, that during that period which is termed The inter-regnuam or Comnmonwealth, Nettleton having been tw, years in the Golony, received on a pub lic parade for General Muster, an Absolute Pardon from the hands of Col. F.aeau.x, signed by Col. Paterson, and accompanied by some fl.L'terin e?epressions of approba tion of his good character. Shortly after, Nettleton being in the service of Judge Bent, purchased the ground in question of a person named Jones; described in the Deed as being situ.ite at the top of Scrjeant Ma jor's Row. The Deed is .duly witnessed by two persons now living in the Colony, and registered in the Judge's Office. '.'he estate, whlich was at that time occupied as a'Cabbage garden, with a skilling standing on it, was considered at the South end of Sydney, and out of the way of business. It was sold on the ...

(Rural Ride, continued from Page 470.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 28 June 1827

(Rural Ride, continued from Page 470.) Shopkeeping, merely as shopkeeping, is injurious to any community. What are the shop and the shopkeeper for To receive and distribute the produce of the land. There are other articles, certainly; but the main part is the produce of the land. The shop must be paid for; the shop-keeper must be kept; and the one must be paid for and the other must be. kept by the consumer of the produce; or, perhaps, partly by, the consumer and partly by the producer. When fairs were very freqnent, shops were not needed. A manufacturer of shoes, of stockings, of hats; of almost any thing that man wants, could manufacture at home in an obscure hamlet, with cheap house-rent, good air, and plenty of room- He need pay no heavy rent for his shop; and no disadvantages from confined situation; and, then, by attending three or four or five or six fairs in a year, he soli the works of his hands, un loaded with a heavy expense attending the keeping of a shop. He would get m...

AVE regret to have to detail such impropriety in the conduct of the most important Magistrate of the Colony as is detailed in the above lette'. The vendor of butter evidently committed no offence. Thle question as to whe ther the woman did or did not give him a dollar, was a civil question, not a crimjnal one, )r. D4lhuuty there fore, bad no right to entertain it, and the woman's state ment should not have been made -idence, by her being allowed to sign her statement, by which it was put on record. It was impertinent to the case. The Constable swore to the man's refusing to go. 'his was no offence in the man. The offlnce'was with tihe C nstable; for had lie taken the man into custody on such a charge as he had to make, it would have been false imprisonment.

SUPREME COURT.-Dr. Wardell, as Defendant to cer-   tain criminal informations for libel, addressed the Court on Tuesday, praying its intervention on a number of   grounds. In the case of Rex on the prosecution of Carter, for a libel, by the acting Attorney-General, the information had been filed without any application FOR THE LEAVE OF THE COURT; a process required by all text books and books of practice. The Attorney-Gene- ral, as the Grand Jury of the Colony, could only file criminal informations upon the proceedings of magis-   trates, or by leave of the Supreme court. In another prosecution against him, Dr. W. for an alleged libel on the Chief-Justice of Van Dieman's Land, the learned Counsel contended, that inasmuch as that was not a de- pendence of New South Wales, so the Attorney General of the latter place had no right to extend his protection to the officers of the former. By analogy, the Chief- Justice of the Cape of Hope, of Ceylon, ...

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 28 June 1827

5NGLISH 1MISCEILLANZIES. THE GREAT UNPAID.--EmDINBURG REVIEW.-Upon the whole, though with many exceptions, and wishing for many alterations, we are favourable to the institu tion of an Unpaid [agistracy, and are convinced that they are the instruments of mpuch public good. What, in truth could we substitute for this Unpaid Magistracy ? Where is the machinery for which they could be ex changed ? We have no doubt .but that a set of rural Judges, in the pay. of Government, would very soon become corrupt jobber}i and odious tyrants, as they often are on the Continent. But the Magistrates, as they now exist, really constitute a bulwark of some value against the supreme power of the State. They would pot submit to be employed for base and criminal pur poses, They are tools perhaps, in some cases--but, still, tools that must be respected. The .power trusted to so many men of fortune communicates vigour and spirit to that body of men, and inspires them with just notions of their own importa...

XXVIII. To horse ! to horse ! he quits, for ever quits A scene of peace, though soothing to his soul: Again he rouses from his moping fits, 'But seeks not now the harlot and the bowl. Onward he flies, nor fix'd as yet the goal Where he shall rest him on his pilgrimage; And o'er him many changing scenes must roll Ere toil his thirst for travel can assuage, Or he shall calm his breast, or learn experience sage.
