(Rural Ride, continued from Page 4 '9) "Oh, base dogs !" said I: a it is precisely by such men that "ruin is brought upon nations; it is precisely by such "baseness and insincerity, such scandalous cowardice, that "ruin has been brought uponv them. I had two or three " shillings to give you: I had them in my hand: I have put "< them back into my purse: I trust I shall find somebody " more worthy of them: rather. than give them to you, I '' would fling them into that sand-pit and bury them for ever." Ilow curiously things happen ! It was by mere .accident that I took.up a newspaper to read: it was tnerely because I was compelled to stay a quarter of an hour in the room without doing amy thing, and above all things it was miraculous that I should take up the Evening Mail, into which, I helievej I never before looked, in my whole life.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 5 July 1827

DOMBSTIC INTELLIGENCE. THE new Colonial Cutter, Emma Kemp, made her pas sage to Hobart Town in four days; she returned on Monday to this port, and starts again next Tuesday. This is quick work. We like to see such cpnstant in tercourse between these Colonies. A LETTER from Rio Janeiro. states, that Captain Burt. of The Regalia, finding three men supposed to be prison ers of the crown-secreted on board his vessel, gave them tip to the Authorities, in order that they might be re turned to the Colony, or disposed of in the customary way. MERCANTILE men speak in foreboding terms of the consequences of the' present depression of trade. A general scarcity of money prevails, and say they, way be expected to increase. Capitalists seem disposed to hold fast what they have, and the medium traders already feel the effects of these prudential measures. For our own part, we consider the dulness of the dealing part of trade, a proof either that the productive powers of the Co Jorny have lately de...

SCENE IN NEW SOUTH WALES. AN attentive observer of all the.- ramifications of life, as it is, whether in the drawing-room or the hut, I have, among other singularities which a twelvemonth's sojourn in the gloomy wilds of Australia has enabled me to notice, endeavoured to portray, the. customs and man ners of the dwellers -in " the bush," as the interior. of the country is symb'olically appellated. The scene which I am about to delineate, is -descriptive of one of those petite common-weealths qr kingdoms, (for they partake strongly of the dispotism of the latter) 'yclep'd A, CLEARING PARTY, a kingdom in miniature, existing upon the farm where I :for a long time resided.

NEW ANECDOTES oF BONAPARTE.-The first number of 4a periodical.itork, called Constable's Miscellany, just published by Knight and Lacey, contains an interesting account of an interview which took' place at St. Helena, in 1817, between the late Emperor Napoleon and Captain Basil Hall, of the Royal Navy, on the return of the latter from Loo-Choo. We give an extract or two. Bonaparte's Person.-" Bonaparte struck me as differing 'considerably from the pictures and busts I had seen of hiiin His face and figure looked much broader and mole square; larger, indeed, in. 'every way, than any representation I had met with. His corpulency, at this time universally reported to' be excessive, w by no means remarkable. His flesh looked, on the contr , firm and muscular. There was not the least trace of co . r in his cheeks; in fact, his'skin was more like marble tha Bdinary flesh.

ENGL.ISH MISCELL A NIES. Provocatives to War: .MORWING HERALD.=-It is distressing 'to every friend 'of humanity to see the means resorted to by certain indi vidmitls to excite the people of England. and France ,against, one another. Though some writers and speak ers in this country are not free of bltnue, it must be admitted that the French outstrip them far in those appeals to the passions, to national honour and national vanity, whiph are calculated to raise a spirit of animosity, and revive t1ose deadly.feuds which baclbecome nearly ,fqr dttern. ot only the High Church party and those opposed to liberal principles of government, but some of those men who are the. enemies of .bigotry and tyranny, whoh ve written or fought in defence, of popular rights, seem glad of an opportunity to stir up the dying embers, and of` adding to that flame which the clergy haive Ki dled.

To THE EDITOR OF 'THE MONITOR. S I n, r I HAPPENED tO fall a cross " The Tasmanian," a Van Die men's Land Newspaper, the other day; and from the sentiments which I had heard that it professed, was certainly astonished at the illiberal and unfeeling remarks upon the r Monitor and Australian Journals, with which it abounded. WHEN a man sees himself singled out, as it were, from amongst his countrymnen,iand condemned, he and his family, be they never so numerous, to poverty-nay, perhaps, to star cation; it would ill become that man, to pine away in his wretchedness, in sullen silence : It would behove him,, as' an Englishman, and one admiring that constitution, which has for its principle, " That no one man shall feel Taxation more ' than another," to deprecate with all his might (barring seditious expression,) the cause of his distress; and in so doing to use the strongest language of which he is master; and, if that should not be sutliciently strenuous, to quote those arguments which...

WeV remember, about thirty years ago, there was a duelling society held in Charleston, South Carolina, where each gentleman took.precedence according to the numbers lie had killed or wounded in duels. The president and de puty had .killed many. It. happened that an old weather beaten Lieutenant of the English Navy arrived at Char leston, to see after some property which had devolved upon him, in. right of a lady of Charleston, whom he ?ad married. The, Lieutenant, going into a coffee-house, was engaged in cc nversation with a native, whose in suits against England.were qnickly resented, and which quickly produced a challenge. , We must do the Amer icans the justice to say, that as soon as the affair got bruited about, some gentlemen waited upon stranger to inform him that the man who had called him out was a duelist, a dead shot, and President of the Duellist Club..
