Colonial Politics. EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

Colonial Politics   EDUCATION. In the year 1825, His Majesty's Govern- ment were pleased, on the recommendation of the Venerable THOMAS HOBBES SCOTT, late Archdeacon of New South Wales, to   institute a Corporation, under the de- signation of the Church and School Cor-   poration, for the religious instruction and the general education of this colony. The Church and School Corporation consisted of the Archdeacon, and a certain number of the senior Episcopal clergy, with certain of the Crown officers of the colony. Its office, in regard to education, was to establish schools of every description throughout the territory, and to enable it discharge this important duty with the requisite degree of efficiency, it was en- dowed with a seventh of all the land in the colony, and with unlimited access to the public treasury till that endowment could be rendered available. The schools estab- lished by the Corporation were to be all organized agreeably t...

TILE Regencies on the African coast of -the, Me diterranean, or as they are more commonly called, the Barbary States;, were for many ages one of the greatest curses to Christian :Europe, and a thtal" check on the progress of commerce and civili-: zation. : .Nominally acknowledging" the suzerainth :of the Turkish emperors, they for the most, time:i despised the authority of the reigning sultan, 'nori were they much more submissive -to their deys chosen by themselves to rule over them. As long' as the tyranny of these deys ran in the directions¬ prescribed by the more numerous or more power ful party among the pirates and marauders, they. were respected and 'rewardedr with a largel share, of-the plunder, prisoners, and booty made fromi the Christians; but Whenever the deys opposed the inclinations of the prevailing party, they were. deposed, tortured, :and barbarously executed- just 'a...

TRIBUTE TO EARL GREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

TRIBUTE TO EARL GREY. : A M:'osT gratifying tribute has this week (August 23) *'b, n paid to Earl Grey on his arrival at Shields and ? vewcastle. rThe venerable and patriotic statesman '-ivas'welcomed to his native county with enthusiastic api'llause, and the inhabitants crowded to see him, 'and 'paid him 'all possible honour. Addresses were p:ublicly presented to him, which his lordship acknow ledged in speeches marked by the grace, dignity, and patriotic sentiment by which his eloquence has always becn characterized. The Earl of Durham was with his venerable father-in-law, and repeated in his pre sence that which he had before stated, that Earl Grey was the real and undoubted author of the great measure of Parliamentary Reform; and that whilst he himself (Lord Durham) materially helped to work out the details, Lord Grey was the individual with •whom the measure originated, and to whom its §uc cess was owing. This fact will immortalize Earl Grey as a Minister. That he achieved this...

PASSENGER-SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

PASSENGER - SHIPS   We do not regret that The Times, of Saturday last (August 30), has taken some pains to inquire into the conduct and character of a Liverpool emigrant agent, of the name of Walkinshaw. This person has ac- quired some notoriety here, which, we fear, is not by any means enviable; and he has been rash enough to seek the assistance of a London journal in making his name familiar to the citizens of the m'etropolis. Whether this will secure to him an increase of profit able business remains to be seen; but it strikes us, that had Mr. Walkinshaw been anxious to stand pure in the estimation of the public, he would have raised the discussion upon his merits nearer home. We have no wish to injure Mr. Walkinshaw in his business as an emigrant agent; but, when false repre ,sentations are made to the public, which tend to the inconvenience and serious loss of poor people, we consider it our duty to speak out. About the letter which originally appeared in a Limeric...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 29 January 1835

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE   [FROM OUR HUNTER'S. RIVER CORRESPONDENT.] MAITLAND, 21st JANUARY, .1835.;-- Yesterday will ever be remembered in the annals of Mait-   land, as the day on which a select party of Hun- ter's River settlers assembled to testify their re- spect for their late associate J. P. Webber, Esq. of Tokel, Patterson's River, with the usual solemnity of a public dinner. We say solemnity ; for as matters turned out, there was very little festivity, and still less cordiality, and good fellowship, on the occasion. The affair was got up by two or   three of Mr. W's particular acquaintance, per- sons who have long moved within the sphere of that gentleman's attraction, like satellites around their superior planet; but although hundreds of miles had been rode over to marshal a host wor- thy of so great an occasion, and though not fewer than a hundred and fifty' circulars had been is sued, only twenty-four gentlemen, most of whom never had ...

English Extracts. STATE OF IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 5 February 1835

STATE OF IRELAND. On: 1?TEn matters have for some days past diverted out attention from'that condition of things, and more espe cially from that temper of what Mr. O'Connell calls " the populkr party" in Ireland, which forms the subject of two letters recently, published by that gen ' tleman,-the first directly to the "people of kIeland," .-the second equally written for their benefit, though addressed nominally to Lord Duncannon. . Besides, 'it.was unnecessary for us to be in a hurry to notice them,, as the articles of our contemporaries would keep them well before the public. .The appearance, however, of a third letter. from the same TWhiteboy has induced us to break silence. . It is not saying much for either of the first two of these productions, to acknowledge that' we have read oethers from the same hand which exceeded them in, coarseness, virulence, and intemperance, but'.no one ,which ever surpassed them in its involuntary evidence to the extent of the writer's schemes forre...

.fttratttre attiJ jtentte. THE CONQUEST AND OCCUPATION, OF ALGIERS BY THE FRENCH. [SEICOND NOTICE.] TIrE ill-fated ministry of M. de Polignac,. which was so soon to provoke a revolution at. home, had just entered office when intelligence reached France of the insult offered to M. de In. Bretonniere and the national flag. This ministry boldly, and we think properly, resolved to delay no longer, and at once completed that armament which was to drive the dey from Africa. The only Christian government that remon strated as to the extent of the expedition, and the fate that was reserved for Algiers if the French conquered it, was the British, then presided over by the Duke of Wellington. Prince Polignac replied to the duke that France, insulted, re quired the assistance of no one to redress her; wrongs; and that she was not obliged to con sult any other power, as to what she ought to do with the conquest she was determined to make. The Duke put up with this haughty reply; ard he and his ...

AUSTRALIAN. SCHOOL SOCIETY.

Colonial Statistics. MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 5 February 1835

MAITLAND. ;:FR0L OOUR IIUNTEt'S RI VER CORRESPONDENT.] TiE tovwn of Maitland lhas been progressing (to use an .American phrase) at a pretty rapid rate for the. last two years, and the number of credit able buildings of all kinds that have been erected in'this vicinity, during that comparatively short peiriod, is by no means inconsiderable. There is no part of the territory, however, that exhibits the absolute inefficiency of' former colonial go vernments so strongly as this district, or that shows the absolute necessity for vigour and de cision on the part of the Colonial Executive in.so clear a light. During the administration of Sir Thomas Brisbane, the Colonial 'Government ought to have foreseen that an extensive agri cultural and grazing district, like that of Hunter's River, which was then the favourite resort of humerous free emigrants with their families and dependants, would at no distant period become a place of considerable trade; especially as it was easily accessible by ...

[We innert the following colonial production, which, we have reason to believe, has never been published before, in' our-poetical department for this week, in consequence of an article which also appears in this week's paper, under the head of Colonial .Vtatistics, by our I-Hunter's River Correspondent. The article in question exhibits in a remarkably clear and impressive manner, the evil that may be clone to a whole district of country, and entailed for ages on a numerous population, merely by a Govern ment doing nothing in a case in which they ought to have acted with energy and decision. The town of Maitland has had abundant occasion to complain of sach a system of, procedure being adopted towards it by His Excellency GCneral Darling ; just as the whole colony had had occa sion to complain of a similar inellicient style of procedure on .the part of Sir Thomas Brisbane, when contrasted with the vigorous gove-rnent of his predecessor.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 5 February 1835

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sir,-I would not rest on the trite medical adage that " prevention is 'better than cure," but would follow up the theme, and aver that it is better far to eradicate a malady than suffer the agonies or inconvenience of a chronic affection -more especially when we may apprehend such morbid condition may somehow or other become hereditary. With these notions in view, I would fain enlist your aid to win over the " governing powers" in this colony to adopt the extended form of my theorem, and consider, that it is better to correct an error than hazard the many ills that may be consequent on its perpetuity. The time may come when this country may rise into importance as a nation, and its institutions and its arms be respected,-when Sydney shall be universally known as the capital of a respectable state, as Paris and London are now known. But when will the name of Parramatta be familiar over the globe, as the polar mark of science and the ap propriate meridia...

Original Correspondence.       TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST Sir,-Well may Australia be congratulated on the appearance of THE COLONIST--a journal that   stands forth as the most prominent feature in the history of its literature. At no other period could it have issued with more benefit and eclat than at the present, to rescue the nearly lost character of the Australian Press from the doom which awaited it, and which the able editors of the other journals were hastening to a close. For myself, as well as many others, your paper has afforded a really intellectual treat and a source of instruc tion which none of the others have, that I have perused for the last two years. Persevere in the principle you have laid down, and in the search after truth and honesty which now seems to actuate you. Heed not the low invectives of those editors " who left their country for their country's good," as even the honest portion of their own party d...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Hunter's River, 30th. Jan. 1835. Sir,—I beg you will correct a typographical error in your last number in my notice of the late dinner at Maitland to J. P. Webber, Esq.   There were twenty-five at the dinner instead of twenty-four, as you made me say, somewhat incorrectly; for, considering the prodigious efforts that had been made to get up a numerous attend- ance on the occasion, it would not be acting with a degree of fairness towards the respectable whippers-in of the Webber-dinner-party, to allow it to go forth to the world that there was a single individual less present than the actual number. There are thirty-three Justices of the   Peace in this district; but even including the chairman of the meeting, R. Scott, Esq., of Glendon, J. P., there were only four of their number—a mere tithe of the local magistracy present to assist in be-dinnering the ex-patriot of the Hunter! The Herald-- one of whose literary working-bullo...
