Original Communications. MR. EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 28 May 1830

Original Communications. Mr. Editor, There appears to be a complete change in the order of things, in these antipodean legions, and what in other parts of the world would be designated " an age of brass," may be here better characterised by the term, " presumption." It appears that even subordinate juniors in office-duty— mere copying clerks, now assume the designation of " young gentlemen !" so that it is absolutely necessary, in order to restore the wholesome stale of subordination and gradation of rank by which society has been held together for many years, that a proper system should be established, and a scale adopted, by which tho public may avoid those errors that these strange inroads have latterly caused, and although the costume and appearance of the most effeminate of the would be-class may impose upon the illiterate and vulgar, this plan would enable all the rational part of society to keep thier place without the fear of being jostled into the rear, by these formidable ...

    The Aborigines. We have been favoured by a gentleman with a letter writ- ten by a friend of his resident in the country, giving some in- formation upon an alarm that had been felt in the neighbour- hood of New Norfolk, in consequence of the appearance of one of these unfortunate beings a few days ago, at Charlie s Hope the residence of Mr Thomson, and from which he has obligingly allowed us to make the following extract : - " About the middle of the day on Sunday, just as we were preparing for dinner, '.............. arrived from New Norfolk breathless, and looking as white and trembling as though he had seen a ghost, and hastily entered the house, and casting his eyes every where around, as though apprehensive of pur- suers, said in a hurried perturbed manner, ' I have some bad news to tell you ' You know, that for my part, having seen so much of the world as I have, I am not now very   easily thrown off my equilibrium, and perhaps not app...

Capt. Sturt & Spencer's Gulph. Most important rumour.   Captain Sturt is returned from the inerior. The follow-   ing are the reports which have since prevailed:-   Captain Sturt, it is we'll known, made two excursions to the Mr. Oxley's, or the great western marshes, previous to that from which he is just come back. Mr. Oxley's marshes, or great reedy Lake, was found dry by Captain Sturt on his first and second journeys, and he travelled on it safe and sound many miles, sometimes in sight of the small stream which ran through the midst, and sometimes out of sight. That stream is one of the fountains of the Murrumbidgee   River, taking its rise in these great marshes that form the reservoir for the washings of the interior mountains, and which are, in fact, the greatest geographical dish,or basin that receives these diainings and washings. .Having made his course south-west or thereabouts, Captain S. found the stream begin ...

A preacher was al length with difficulty found, who undertook the taslrr After an excellent sermon, upon the general subject of mortality, and the uses to be made of it, he concluded as follows ' By the will of her, whose decease we are now endeavouring to improve, it is expressly enjoined that I should mention her, and say iiolliin;; but what was ineff of her. What I have to say therefore is this :-She was horn well, lived well, and died well-for she was horn with the name of Cresswell, lived in Clerkenwell, and died in Bridewell."

State of Trade in Manchester. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 June 1830

I state of Trade in Manchester^ We are sorry to stale, that it is still out of our power to report the smallest amendment in the trade of this district. Oil the contrai y, the prospects of the cotton manufacturer ap- pear to glow more gloomy and more hopeless every week. Within these few days we have had a few London buyers in town, and also a few drapers ; but their purchases have been very limited. What little business is done id a majority of instances is done not ouly without profit, bat at a positive loss ; and it is frightlul to contemplate the sacrifice of capital which has recently been made in innumerable instances' to ef- fect sale». Fortunately, the demand for yarn for exporta- tion allords some relief to the general gloom ; and though business, even in that amele, is done for little profit to the master spmneis, it gives employment and good wages to an immense number of peisons. The quantity of yarn exported this >ear exceeds the shipments of the same period of last y...

The Irish are well known to be naturally hot and choleric, and veiy prone to duelling, but few instances of this nature are so remarkable as that of Mr. Fitzgerald, well known in 'his day as fighting Fitzgerald, from the number of duels in which he had been engaged. He was nearly related to some of the first families in Ireland, and the fame, or rather in- famy, which encircled his brows, became at length the cause of the most ferocious transactions on his p irt, and gieatly in ,...
