Select Poetry. THE BLISS OF SLEEP. "To sleep!—perchance to dream:—" Shakespeare. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

Traecct Foctr.' THE BLISS OF SLEEP. " To sleep !-perchance to dream:-" Shakespeare. The bliss of sleep?-oh, then, it sure must be The dreamless sleep upon the Stygian sea, Where Lethe's sluggish waves of darkness roll, And Chaos spreads her mantle o'er the soul! The bliss of sleep !-Go mark the hectic glow, The frenzied start upon the couch of woe; Hark to the hollow groan,-the rending sigh, The supplicating prayer,-the stern reply; The shriek of agony,-the lengthened moan, And all that Melancholy calls her own: Mark the big drops upon the forehead fair, Answering the biddings df the witch Despair; Then talk of bliss, and tell how happy they, Who, sunk in slumber, chase their griefs away - Alas! there may perchancq some dreamings be, Some visions heavenly of felicity, When o'er the couch of youth Hope strews the rose, And lulls her votary in ideal repose; But, oh! the wakening from Elysium there, The sleeper from his Eden groves to bear! How starts the soul aghast, o'erwhelm'd to fi...

Duperry; Lieute n .thd Commander of His Majesty's Corvette, La 91P ia Bay, Island of Tahite, May 15th 1823, "" WHEN Wallis, Bouganville, Cook, and :Vancour, touched at this Island, they were boarded by a great number of canoes; we were, therefore, very much surprised to see none approaching us. We however soon learned the reason,--everylbody was at chapel.--The next day,, the inhabitants in great' numbers brought us provisions of all kinds. The missionaries assembled the whole population, consisting of 7,000 souls, every year, in the church of Papahva. This meeting was holding at the moment of our arrival. They dismissed the articles of a code of laws proposed by the mission aries, and the Jahtian's chiefs mounted the tribune and spoke for whole hours with much warmth. The state of the Island of Tahite is now very different from what it was in the days of...

Parliamentary Intelligence. (Debates continued from our last.) Mr. Buxton in continuation. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

Varyianwitarp *ntetigene. (Debates continued from our last.) Mr. Buxton in continuation. THERE was one imputation which had been cast upon the a'bolitionists, which was, that he and those who thought with him, had embarked in wild and extrava gant theories for colonial legislation. (Cries of " hear" from the benches opposite.) Let the charge be openly made, and it should be openly and explicitly met. (Hear hear.) Let it be brought forward, article by article, and particular by particular; let them take this very case of female flogging. Had the opponents of the practice outrun either the feelings of that house or the country upon that punishment? Certainly not, for both the right hon. gentlemen and the house called for its cessation ; they had given a pledge to rescue the female slave from the cart-whip of the driver. He would now proceed to the right honourable gentlemen's second point-the use of the whip as applied to male slaves, to stimulate them to labour. The West India plante...

UNITED STATES—THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. CORK, JANUARY 10, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

UNITED STATES - THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. CORK, JANUARY 10, 1826, WE inserted on Saturday, that portion of the Presi- dent's Message to Congress, which bears upon the foreign relations of the United States. We have not room for the whole document; we shall therefore give in this place some additional extracts. It is the first ad- dress of the kind which it has fallen to the lot of Mr. Quincy Adams to deliver; and though, like most docu- ments of the same kind in the United States, it is rather lengthy, yet, upon the whole, it reflects much credit on the abilities of the writer. THE President speaks handsomely of "the generous emulation with which the Governments of France, Great Britait, and Russia have devoted the genius, the intelli- gence, and the treasures of their respective nations to the common improvement of the species," and holds those Govertiments up as splendid examples to be fol- lowed in this respect by the American Legislature. He in like manner quotes the examples of ...

English Miscellanies. ABSURDITIES OF THE ENGLISH LAW. LONDON, DEC. 11, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

* e7f/ , *lfgcepa"i %. AasURnDITIES or THE ENGLISH LAW. LONDON, DEc. 11, 1825. Ws give a sketch of the case :-At the last Lancaster Assizes, ,a prisoner was indicted for uttering a forged ba~mk note. On being arraigned he pleaded guilty, but at the suggestion and by the advice of Mr. Justice i?ayley, he retracted his plea, and pleaded Not Guilty. Oah the trial, clear evidence was given of Iis having uttered the note, which was proved to be a forgery. The note was then handed to the offiecer, as is the custom, to read to the Jury; the Judge, there being, we believe, NO counsel for the prisoner, at the same time reading the indictment, to see that the note was correctly set forth in the indictment. The note appeared to be correctly set forth up to the signature, on which a question was raised. In the indictment the Christian name of the signature .was written Christr. (for Christopher). In the note it did not clearly appear whether the little mark which was above the abbreviation, Chr...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

. THE MOWITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 186G. NoTHING has hindered the prosperity of New" Soutbl':, Wales so much as the contemptible, impolitic, and really proqftigate economy which was introduced into this' colony after the departure of Governor Macquarie. The zeal with which this paltry attempt at saving..-,this ridiculous, ill-timed, unnecessary, and fruitless parsi. mony was carried on by Major Goulburn, always gave us a very poor opinion of that gentleman's talents in political economy, however much we were compelled to admit, that his uncomprising mode of carrying Mr. Hume's and Mr. Bigge's niggardliness into executioni demonstratgd his personal integrity. The late honest colonial secretary was always so enamoured of a sheet- . full of Cocker, arranged under heads and lines, rectili peal, transverse, diagonal, perpendicular, and horizontal' that he gloried much more in paper-plans which dise played the perfection of arithmetic and typical arrange.. ment, adorned with results and tota...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

The number of our unfortunate fellow creatures, at       present confined in His Majesty's Gaol at Sydney, are as follows, viz: PRISONERS for crimes and misdemeanours. Debtors............ 15 Felons ............ 242 Total...... 264 THE Bread supplied by the present contractor, Mr. Watson, to the confines in Sydney Gaol, is of excellent quality, and reflects much credit on the contractor. We only fear he wil not be able to support such a quality much longer, in consequence of the contract being taken at so low a price. We hope he will not reduce the qua- lity, but raise his price. The bread hitherto supplied to the prison, has been very bad in general. A clock in the tower of the steeple of the new Scots Church, would be a most useful, as well as ornamental appendage to the town. A good clock is required in that part of the town; and we trust it will be better re- gulated than our present town clocks. THE following tolls were put up by public Auc...

SUPREME CRIMINAL COURT. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

SUPREME CRIMINAL COURT. MONDAY. REX. v. LEITCH.-An indictment was preferred against the defendent, the Commander of the Brig Atalanta, for di- vers assaults and batteries on Abraham Blaxtron, a seaman, during a voyage from the Brazils to this port. IT appeared that the Atalanta had lost her original crew, with the exception of two boys, soon after her arrival at Rio de Janeiro from England. At Rio she had been chartered   for Port Jackson, by Mr Joseph Barboza, and another ship's company, partly foreigners, had been, engaged. These in like manner, after discharging the cargo, had refused to do duty on board, and been sentenced by the Sydney magistrates to 30 days confinement in the house of correction. The wit- nesses were consequently brought up by a writ of Habeas Corpus. AFTER hearing evidences for and against the prosecution,the Chief Justice summed up. In reviewing the evidence, he ob- served, that the defendant ought to have shewn, there was a legal justification ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

Our Travelling Correspondent continues to write: NEWCASTLE possesses the American characteristics of a town, to wit, a church, a tavern, and a blacksmith's shop. It even exceeds in these particulars; but the number of houses unroofed and going to decay, betray the sad tokens of depopulation and poverty. I have been among the ruins of ancient cities and paused, believing that I felt or beheld the phantoms of romance flitting around - but Newcastle conveys a sen- sation as much otherwise as is found in eating chalk and cheese. The situation is nevertheless charming, and it will one day become ensouled. It stands on the promontory of a sweeping hill, which, overlooks a large extent of coast, and the Southern ocean; like Sydney, it is a wonderful place, you go up and down it and wonder - what next! -- there may be people of sen- timent in it for aught I know, but I was not lucky enough to meet them. Four Bacchanalians, coupled arm in arm following a flute-player, was the most classic ex...

AGRICULTURAL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 June 1826

AGRICUTURAL REPORT. Oua Correspondent writes-The intensity of the frost, which has been prevalent since the middle of last month, has entirely changed the face of nature, and completely destroyed the nutritious qualities of the indi genous and other pastures, and greatly retarded vegeta tion in our cultivated fields-both wood-land and plain evince a strong indication of the severity of the season, by their withered appearance. The early sown wheat, seems, however, to bid defiance to the weather-wheat sown the latter end of May and beginning of this month comes on but slowly, as vegetation is greatly protracted in consequence of the extreme drought experienced during the last two months-the wheat sowing is gene rally over on this side the mountains, but the Bathurst Settlers have just commenced their operations in turning up the furrow, in which they find considerable difficulty, owing to the continued dry weather, which renders the soil almost impenetrable-during this month, pulling...

It is a fact, that such is the scarcity of eligible land in Van Dieman's Land, by the settlement of the one or two new Incorporated Companies on the remaining best spots of the country; and such is the general dilapida tion of its capital and prosperity, that emigrants, after twelve months' exertions to obtain a footing in that un fortunate island, are obliged to muster up their little stock, and emigrate to New South Wales. This says more against Colonel Arthur, than the imprisonment of poor Bent. The straits to which the country must have arrived, when the judge (in a petty state whose com munity ought to be, as it was in Sorrell's days, all har mony) is obliged to denounce what he calls " a faction of the worst description," may be more easily conceived than described. Colonel Arthur, according to all ac counts, is a good-meaning man; but a man of no policy -and so far totally unfit to manage a society composed of stiff, stubborn Englishmen--such as we are happy to observe, Van D...
