I have had, the honour to receive your letter of this date; and while I 'thank you for this inti mation of your intentions, I beg leave to ,make some remaLks thereoni.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 2 March 1829
SDOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. Some say, that the 'late Joseph Sndds of the 57th regiment, enlisted 'under the name, of Sudds, but that his real name. is Jones, and that lhis wife and family now reside at Bridport in Wiltshire. Mr. Brownu one night lately being alarmed, prose from his bed, and on going out, seized a va gabond of the name of Flynn, in the act of stealing his grapes. The fellow struggled to get away,. but .Mr. Brown secured him, and had him Safely lodged in the watch-house. (The following has been transmitted us by Mr. s~ett of Launceston.) " THE CORNWALL .

SPIRIT LICENSES IN SYDNEY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 2 March 1829
SPIRIT LICENSES IN SYDNEY. To THE EDnioR OF THE omNITOR. SIR, The motives of our rulers have been made the subject of reflection, so far as the contracted system of giving areduced number of spirit licenses this year, in the. populous increasing town of Sydney. Various are the conjectures which have been called forth to account for the nmunber 68 in particular. One opinion is, that' 68 is the, age of RHis Excellency the Governor; but this we may venture to say is some half a dozen years beyond truth.' Another is, that 68 is some astrological number of solemn import; while others, with more appearance of reason, suppose this elect number is the identical nudiber of favourite men of whom His Excellency has a high opinion, and in whom he can confide. Some dry calculating searchers after causality, are of opinion, that the izitention of their worships, or o1 His -lExcellency, is merely to in crease the revenue by reducing the number of li censed houses, and thereby encouraging sly grog ...
REVIEW of the fourth number of THE SOUTH ASIAN REGISTER, (published in Sydney, by A. Hill.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 2 March 1829
' rdar of the fourth number of Tani So riT . sIA r, REGISTER, (published in Sydney,. A. Hall.) '. The fourth number of this work came to optr 'b"hand with satisfaction, because we consider Dr. Oldfield one of the best, if not the very best writer in New South, Wales. He is cer tainly the best literary essayist. How he would shine as a political writer, we cannot tell, for politics, whether local or foreign. he meddles , not with; and in so saying, we think we offer no inconsiderable proof of the Doctors' talents,.. because what is Colonial literature without poli ":tiaee The subjects treated of in this fourth inumber, are all interesting, and most agreeably diversifying in their character. We will say some- i-thing upon each in order. Article 1.--NEW HOLLAND.

ERRORS OF JUSTICE MADE ABSOLUTE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE SYDNEY MONITOR Some time since I read in one of the indepen dent Journals, a case rather anomalous, relative to the conviction of a bond servant of Mr. Daniel Cooper, for being caught without a pass. on his mas ters business.

(Extracts from the Tasmanian Journal of Feb. 13th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 3 March 1829
(Extracts from the Tasmanian Journal of Feb. 13th.) " WE heartily rejoice at the omisison of the British Government. to send out a Council, ,no. minated as no doubt such would be. We con sider it the worst of all possible substitutes for a representative Government. We consider the new act altogether unjust; and we hope and trust, the Colonists of both Colonies will assemble in a legal and constitutional manner, to petition the British Government (for :t nonsense to talk of petitioning parliament in the manner done last year) for the repeal of this most unsatisfac tory Statute. In the mean time, however, we heartily rejoice at the non.Arrival (if such is) of the Council warrant. The .4,stralian seems to forget there is such a thing as sending out blank warrants to be filled up here ? awd if so, of course they would be filled up, only as " Executve Councils" should direct.

T$hn ' seems to be an instinctive' pro pensity now.a-days, to deviate from the practice of the law and the constitu siou as the same take place in England. We allude to the disntissal of Justice **"* of W*g*aOP , from the situation of Superinteodant of Police, and yet of his continuance in the commission of the peace. Such a proceeding appears to the. public like saying, " Mr..**** your public conduct is suflliciently regular for you to be continued as an admimstrator of the laws, to which a salary is not attached, butit is not ufficiently ccrrect for you to be paid any thing.
