FEMALE EMIGRATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 October 1835
': 'FEMALE EMIGRATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. SIR.--Aware that the cocoethes scribendi. in. the public prints is not in accordance with the delicacy of my sex,,.I would not have intruded myself oi your notice or that of the public; had not such un limited obloquy been cast on the females who have arrived in this colony by the femaleemigrant ships. Many of- these'remarks, with reluctance I contfess, are but too true. 'But shall those who are res pectable suffer for the conduct of the abandoned Sfe~ ? To. such an'extent have these observations been carried that a David Scott, a. Laytonian, the next I suppose will be a' Cantonian, (these being the usual'appellations given to immigrants) and a female' whose ,reputation is suspected, are synonymous. .. That among the females who have arrived by these vessels, are many whose character was and still is most exemplary, is an acknowledged fact.

? I r. igitalt -otrrepotbeltrce. THE RULE OF FAITH. T ::R:TTO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sig,-In treating upon this important subject, I )ishall endeavour to prove: 1. That oral tradition: is incompetent to trans-. i mit doctrines to posterity. 2. That, under the Mosaic dispensation, the i:-1ule of Faith was written. 3., That: our Saviour disapproved of the tra ditions of the Scribes and Pharisees. 4. That,. from" many passages in the. New t S:-Testament, we may conclude that the Scriptures contain all things necessary for mani's salvation. 5. That the ancient fathers, considered- the Scriptures to be tlie Rule of Faith. \ I. If, at any period in the history of-mankind, :oral tradition could have served as a competent 1 mean of conveying down doctrines to' posterity, I it must have been in the patriarchalages. Then, 1 'indeed, the length of human life favoured such a :,rean. , Methusaleh lived about 300 years while E 'Adam was alive,, and, Shem lived almost 100' I .years with Abrah...

The petition was signed by 6000 free inhabitants ofNew South Wales, and the peti. tioners claimed that a legislative assembly should be granted to the colony. He would state shortly. and simply the peculiar circumstances of the case, and then he would appeal to the justice and good sense of the Government to do what was proper regarding it., The population of the colony consisted of: 60,000 persons: The revenue, amounted to 135,0001. per annum.

Colonial Politics. THE RECENT EXPEDITION OF DISCOVERY. [THE SUBJECT CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 October 1835
Colonial Politics &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE RECENT EXPEDITION OF DISCOVERY. [THE SUBJECT CONCLUDED.] AFTER enumerating the various results of Major MITCHELL'S recent Expedition into the western &nbsp; &nbsp; interior, we took occasion to observe, in the course of our last leader, that Major MITCHELL deserves the thanks of the whole Australian Re- public of Letters for the good taste he has so frequently exhibited in substituting the beautiful native names of localities of all kinds in this territory, for the uncouth and meaningless, and frequently ridiculous and absurd English names with which they have usually been beplastered &nbsp; by other colonial travellers. In doing so, how- ever, we did not mean particularly to allude to the Bogan River, a native name which Major MITCHELL has very properly substituted for the &nbsp; New Year's Creek, of his predecessor, Captain STURT ; for as Captain STURT p...

OBSTACLES THAT ATTEND TRAVELLING INTO THE INTERIOR OF AUSTRALIA. OM' CAPTAIN STURT'S ACCOUNT OF HIS TWO EXPEDI- TIONS INTO THE INTERIOR OF AUSTRALIA.] HAVING now had, considerable experience in the fitting out and management of expeditions in New South Wales, I cannot refrain from making some few observations on the subject, and without &nbsp; presuming to lay down any fixed rules, I shall only refer to those.by,which I haye best succeed ed, in hopes that some of my renmlaiks may prove of use to future travellers who may' venture to penetrate into the trackless deserts over so small a portion of which wandered. The great difficulty'of examining the interior of Australia, is that of carrying supplies; for in-; creasing the number of individuals is of no avail, since an additional number'of men must neces sarily increase the consumption of food. In order to meet this difficulty it has been proposed to establish depots, upon which an 'expedition could fall back to recruit its s...
