TIHE rSYDNEY GAZETTE. INa very recent ninimber'we predicted the fate of The Sydney Gazette.

Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 November 1835
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST:.. Si ,-There is inserted in The Auitralian of thd '6th.inst. a letter signed A. B. C., piofessing to"-' be.written' by a Member of the Church of Scot land, in which doctrines are advanced subversive, of the first principles of Presbyterianism, and iii which gross i:'gnorance' is manifested 'of :ihe standing laws of that Church, and of the powers .with which':its Ministers are invested, in virtu'e' of their ordination. If the following-attempt to expose the fallacy of some of the doctrines advo cated in that letter be deemed worthy of being admitted into the pages of your journal, it' is.. ,respectfully placed at yo'ur service:: It, is afirmed .by the author of..that, letter, that no presbytery could be 'lawtldly foriied by ordained Ministers of the:Church of Scotland in 'foieign parts, previous; to 'the piassing of the' Dea claratory Act of the'-Gedreral Assembly in May; 1833; in ?which ministers, who. had :been 'ap pointed to clerical situations in th...

in 10 TO THE FRIENDS OF THE 'LONDON ie MISSIONARY"' SOCIETY IN .NEWi SOUTH WALES. f DEAR CHRISTIAN FRIENDS,--It is a cause of thie. deepest regret to me that I have not been able, d during a residence of five months in the Colony r to'address. you either from 'the pulpit or the plat 'e form with reference to the interests of our Re-. e deenmer's Kingdom.: When I left. India the state n of my health was such as almost to forbid the hope of even a partial recovery.' Change of climate, Slhowever, and the continued use of the .p:oper re-. e medies have, with the blessing of God, moderated - e the symptoms of my complaint, and afforded'hie a degree of comfort, for which 1 thank, the Authorn of life and every good gift. Still my.strength is. so small,'and I am so susceptible of injury from any considerable exertion of body or mind; that I deein it prudent to follow.the professional advice given' ie, before leaving India, and also at the_ .Cape of Good Hope and here, viz. To abstain from:....

Besides the great question of the marriages of •dissenters, which :miust"! bei:sset at" rest as. soon as possible, there is the motion of which Lord Biougham l)ha? given notice for a re(rision' of the whole'marriage law of Scotland,- and there is also the bill which has beeii brought into the HIonse of Lords by Lord Lynd liurst for amending in cert'ai i iresects the law. res??ecting fiarriages c'ontracted by persons within the prohibited degrees.'

THE PASHA OF EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 November 1835
TI-HE PASHA. OF' EGYPT. TuE following account of this extraordinary man is taken from an address of. Sir A., Johnston to the Royal Asiatic Society:- The Pasha of: Egypt,'one of our honorary mem-: bers,'a chief of a clear and vigorous mind, observ ing the advantage European states have derived from a similar policy, has publicly encouraged the intro duction into Egypt of all those arts and sciences whicli are 'calculated to improve the understand ing of the people, to mitigate the effects of their re ligious feelings, and to secure the stability of the local government; he has assimilated his army and his navy to those of Europe, and subjected them to European regulations and to European discipline: he has formed corps of artillery and engineers upon the. 'European principles; he has attached regular bands of military music to each of his regiments, with' European instructors, who teach the Arab musicians, according to the European notes of music, to play upon European'instruments th...
Literature and Science. DR. LHOTSKY'S AUSTRALIAN ALPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 November 1835
DR. LHOTSKY'S, AUSTRALIAN ALPS. Wi -have been favoured by Dr. Lhotsky with anbther, sheet of. his Journeey to the Australian Alps: The Doctor,'we are happy to observ.e has adhered in his last number more closely to olr advice, ,yhich he- took in such high dudgeon at the time it was.given, viz. to steer clear of poli tics, with which every number of his Journey hitherto has been interlarded. -The consequence of this compliance with our wishes, is that this portion of. the Doctor's narrative is more interest ing than any of the preceding numbers. As the Doctor in this number gives'us an account of his arrival at his far-famed' discovery of'the'mihe ral well, it is probable that his narrative vvill soon draw to a 'close. By the way the Doctor's account of. the remied? f6r the bite of a snake, which he states to .be in use among the A.bo rigines of tlhe Menero ,tribes is rather a violent one. A reniedy, which we uspect our friend the Editor of The Australian would be inclined. to consid...
