LONDON NEWSPAPER CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 12 July 1827

LONDON NEWSPAPER CHAT. A new bridge, one arch, 200 feet span, is to be forth with commenced over, the Dee (Cheshire;) the contracts for which were entered into last week. Among the subscribers is "the Boots" of the Blossom's Inn, Chester, for x£600. ! MR. DENT, the author of the tax upon dogs, died last week. His father was a writing master in a parish school in Cumberland; accident, and superior penman ship, introduced him to Mr. Child, the banker, who en gaged him as clerk, and who, at his death, left Mr. Dent, and three other senior clerks, £10,000. each, to carry on the banking business, which is now one of the most eminent establishments in Europe. Tas town of Umea, on the borders of Lapland, is of considerable size, the streets being long and perfectly straight; it possesses this peculiarity, that the inhabit aets all dine at one fixed hour; which they observe so rigidly, that a stranger entering the place at that time would suppose it visited by the plague, so totally has it ...

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 12 July 1827

RWENGLISH MISCELLANIES.. HURRICANE AT TENERIFFE.--This island was visited by a tremendous hurricane on the 7th and 8th of last November. A letter from Santa Cruz, dated Nov. 12th, says, " buildings, vineyards, orchards, and other valu able property, to a large amonnt, have been utterly destroyed ; whole villages have been swept into the sea by the irresistible violence of the flood gushing down the monntains; to which I am sorry to add, that many, many lives have been lost, and that thousands of our fellow-creatures, naked, without, shelter, und half starving, are roving about the ruins of the miserable habitations they. once called their own,-an affecting sight indeed, which claims the whole sympathy of every breast open to the feelings of humanity, and cannot but excite the wish to allay the distress of the poor unf?rtunate sufferers."-Another letter, dated from Orotava, the 15th of November, says, " the hurricane continued with little intermission until the afternoon of the loth ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 12 July 1827

Scene in New South Wales) continued from Page 496. A bark hut in a Government Camp, such as I have de- scribed, is a curious spectacle. Its construction, and that of every convenience within it, in rudeness of design and roughness of mechanism, may well vie with the habitations (such as travellers depicture them) of the Kamschatchians, or the Laplanders. Indebted to nature in her least improved condition, the whole is formed of materials unshaped and almost unprepared by art. The length of the hut is usually 18 feet by 82, and just affords spsce for a bed place, or birth, to be erected for each of the five inmates. The bedding of the men in few in- stances consists of more than a single blanket, and that often a tattered one; the beds of the prisoners being taken from them on entering the Barracks, and not of late returned. A block, cut from the barrel of a small tree, and about eighteen inches high, is the easy arm chair of the prisoners in the woods. A tin quart pot or pint panaki...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 12 July 1827

DOMESTIC. INTELLIGENCE. The, portable wooden dwellings, which have been for some time considered as a nuisance to the market, are at length one by one removing; but we regret to find some of them taking up their stand in a part of the town, near as objectionable as their original position. The murder of the servant of Mr. Spearing at Illa- warra, still remains enveloped in mystery. Examinations in private have been renewed before the Sydney Bench of Magistrates. "Blood will have blood; murder will out," and we are informed that there is little doubt but that through the vigilance of the local authorities at the Five Islands, and the patience of investigation of the Police, the unveiled facts will shortly be expond. BY the arrival of the Dragon, from Rio de Janiero we learn that the Portland, Captain Mood, had safely reached that place on her voyage home. Hostilities were at their zenith between the Brazilians and Buenos Ayrians; the former having laid an embargo upon the shipping.--...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 17 July 1827

THE Government, in refusing their promised aid to the Catholics, in the completion of that beautiful structure, the Catholic Chapel, we consider have committed a breach of inter-national faith. On the propriety of the promise, in the first instnace, we have two opinions, according to the modes of fulfilling that promise. If the money were to have been paid from the British Treasury, well and good: But if themoney were to have come from our Colonial Treasury, how great soever be our notions as to the furtherance of re ligion, we unhesitltingly would cry-Hold I in all conscienc?, our tonea are heauty enough without having to . pay for a Catholic Chapel-the sums already ev:pended on which,. would have built one equally grand for the state and the " population of the Country.-The Catholics went, we consider" beyond the mark; but, now that tne Building hain got so far , we could desire to see it finished."

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 17 July 1827

To THE EDITOR OF THE TMONITOR SIR, AND so, the Editor of The Gleaner calls you, the Editor of the Monitor, illiterate ? Well, what then ? AND I call the Editor of the Gleaner, illiterate; very illite rate indeed. Now you and he are equal. THE fact is, and I affirm it ; The Editor of the Gleaner, does not know the right use of letter~s and of words : He imagines that their sole use, is, by a judicious arrangement thereof, to produce certain formnida. ble and terrific sounds. OF the fact, that words are meant to convey ideas, the man appears to he entirely ignorant ; a display of words, not of sentiments, is his notion of fine writing.-This is descernible in every page of the Gleaner. VERY little sense (barr:ng that description of sense, which teaches a man that two and two make four !) is the Gleaner remarkable for. BUT, for a perfect prostitution of the Press, to the vilest of purposes ;- to the murdering of reputation ;- and. to the embittering of private life, is the Gleaner newsp...

TO MR. CANNING. (Continued from Page 512.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 17 July 1827

TO MR. CANNING. "(ontinued from Page 512?.) Yq' a `rbhae was as geberal, as sweeping, as words couid make it. All nations were threatened; no matter - in wh~t pai;i of the vorld ; n3 niatter what the form of goverrnment, and no matter what the treatment of the people by their governinent. This was going far beyond Cblonel Titus and me: we never contended that this species of hostility ought to be exercised by us against any foreign sovereign at all; and, in no case against a notorious tyrant and usurper. This doctrine of yours, if it be yours, applies to every foreign government, indis criminately: the speech asserts, that we have the means; by implication it asserts that we have a right to use the means; and our justification for using them, our complete and absolute justification for the use of such terrible means, is to be contained in the proof of the single fact, that the party is in a state of warfare against us ! Talk no more of the laws of modern war fare: if you own this do...

TI?vESr. 612, SIR, : THE philosophical manner in which Chatani ville accounts for the overthrow of Carthage, has in it t great degree of plausibility. His comparison o? that event with the siege of Stalsund, is certainly not. inap propriate, for both places are alike subject to the oscilla tion prevalent in those parts. But fortified by nature and by art, as the walls of Carthage were, they seem to have been impregnable to force, and only accessible when the gates were voluntarily opened by the besieged to prevent the consequences of a protracted blockade. FROM the skill of the Carthiginians in navigation, their constant traffic with other nations, and their nume rous vessels of almost every description, it may justly be presumed they were as well acquainted with the effects of the different win...
