TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 October 1835
TO THE EDITOR OF THEE COLONIST. Sra,--As; you have lately favoured= the public with an' interesting detail of the proceedings of the Temperance. Society in Newiv ealand, allow me to add, that the members of the New South Wales Temperance Society. will not be behind their friends to the south-east, but hope to have an animated .-public meeting in- the approach ing month of November. A- cool calculation by the.heads of. Government would assuredly lead them to the conclusion of the Irish Par liament in the seveateenth .century, and of the British residents of New Zealand in the nine teenth century: " That spirit.is nothing profitable to be .used as a drink.". The last statistic from England in reference to these Societies, may prove interesting to many of your readers, and I subjoin it. S: I am, Sir, your'obedient servant, SJ.S..

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 October 1835
TO CORRESSONDENTS. Veritas has been omitted for want of space, he calls atten tion to a public house not far from the Treasury, where on Sundays during service, Convicts and other disorderly persons congregate, and are supplied with spirits through some broken panes of glass-left so no doubt for the ex press purpose. Where are the police, that they do not put a stop to the practice by fining the landlord ? But summer is at hand, and those worthies many of them are thirsty souls, and so, we suppose it is not convenient. Veritas should attend on the next licensing day. Inquisitor must lie over until we can ascertain whether it is really the fact that the female alluded to in his letter is a prisoner of the crown, and to whom she is- at present assigned. If things are as he has stated them to be, he may rely on our early attention to his com munication. Investigator may rest assured that we shall not be deterred by any mercenary motives from exposing a case of so flagrant a nature.

IEtomcrtfc Eutelligence, . DR. JOHN LHOTSKY. IN the Supreme Court, on' Saturday last, Mr. Foster moved on the part;of C. 'H: Ebden, Esq. for a rule calling upon Dr. Johb Lhotsky, to shew cause why- a criminal infbrmatioii should not be filed against him, for publishing a libellous " letter in The Monitor of August 8, and another in The Sydney Gazette of 19th October last, tending to injure the character and. reputation of Mr. Ebden, as a gentleman and as a merchant, Mr. Foster produced in support of his motion an affidavit made by the Editor of The Sydney Gazette, and one by the assistant. Editor of The Monitor, proving the Dr.'s authorship. Mr. Foster then read to the court the last of the two letters and pr'oceeded to recapitulate the circumstances, which had led to the transactions alluded to in these letters.

THE SYDNEY GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 October 1835
THE SYDNEY GAZETTE. WE apologize:to our readers for devoting even a single line in noticing the vulgar: attack .made upon us on Saturday.last by that wretched pub lication, but as this is the Alpha, so shall itbe the Omega of our offending in that particular. The expiring Sydney Gazette, like all venom ous reptiles, ",dies hard,", continuing ,to diffuse its moral poison to the last moment. of its exist ence, we should not have condescended 'to notice the attack on ourselves, had, not The Gazette in making it, endeavoured as usual to incite a certain class of this community against, us, by a' perversion of language, and the dissemination of ,falsehood. The Gazette indulges itself in the first place, by resortihg to its customary. weapon -low-lived abuse; .we thank , them for it, be cause it will be the means of effecting an earlier ,cure, and the consummation' of our' wishes, by, disgusting every respectable man, in the colony, ;whether emigrant or emancipist,. and there are .many of...

SYDNEY: MECHANICS' SCHOOL" OF?.:= ARTS. LECTURES ON THE MECHANICAL ND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF 'THE'? MOSPHERE, BY MR. BAND. LECTURE I. THE *Lecturer introduced his subject with a fe?v. prefatory remarks, pointing out the difficulties under which he laboured in coming forward, in the present state of the Institution, to treat almost any department of experimental science in the satisfactory manner which we have been, accustomed to observe in the mother-country, where those who come forward as the instructors of others have often made it the study of their. life, and have themselves sought the public arena, grounding their' claims op their ,own ability and merit. But in this colony it was. .very different. Other occupations, and a want of - that stimulus-which often, it may be said, calls talent into existence,-prevent many coming. for ward who might be qualified to do so; in fact, such a degree of apathy is produced as makes it. necessary to urge-nay, almost to drag-a lecturer to the ...
Original Poetry. IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT.[A Lecture on this important and interesting subject was advertized for delivery on the 17th inst., at the saloon of the Royal Hotel, by Mr. N. L. Kentish; but in consequence of the room being required for the theatre, a change of place was named, but so late that it was deemed expedient to defer it till some future period. Mr. Kentish has politely sent us the MS. copy of the essay, and a poem on the same subject from which we have extracted the following lines. There are other portions of it which we have little doubt would be found interesting to many, as containing satirical descriptions of persons well known argumentative part of it, in the hope that it may go some way towards showing expediency of the doing away with the absurd and cruel system of incarceration for debt. We believe it to be the intention of the author to public it here, should he obtain sufficient encouragement from the public to enable him to do so, and as it is calculated to do a public service we hope he will not be disappointed.] CANTO I.
