NEWS BY THE FERGUSSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 31 March 1829
NEWS BY THE FERGUSSON This vessel left Dublin the 16th of Novem- &nbsp; ber. We have received Newspapers .by her up to the 14th Nov. inclusive. The King wos on that day in the best health, and the counn tr , was also tranquil and apparently free from extreme pressure of disgresq to which it has of years been so greatly oubjeet. England seeme to be free from violent politics but not Ireland. "' Domestic intelligence," as we Edi tore. here gall it, occupy the Newspapers more than politics, and the Wellington administra tion appears, to u' firmly settled,' and we doubt-not will continue so for many years.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 31 March 1829
DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. A letter appeared lately-in one of our Con temporaries signed Mentor, giving reasons why Lieutenant Butler was not a good Magistrate at Illawarra. Except his youth, we considered the &nbsp; instances in proof very unsatisfactory. Mr. Butler's remark on the Impounding Act was very just; and if the Magistrates of the Terri tory did not mitigate this oppressive law, the cattle and lands of poor settlers, would gradu ally pass away into the hands of the Constables, the Pound-keepers, and such sorts of people as in this close-council-governed Colony, may be said to live by putting our laws in force. The oath of the Settler against the ticket-of-leave-man, might have been the result of malice or envy. At all events, the impartiality of Lieut. Butler, in executing the laws as if the ticket-man were a free man, was admirable; as however there &nbsp; had been on oath sworn, Mr. Butler bound the ticket-man over to keep the peace. We have &nbsp; t...
Portuguese Intrigues. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 31 March 1829
Portuguese, Intrigues. Tzaxs.--Ministers themselves ought to kaow, that the most sinister rumours are aloat, respec tilag an intrigue (:n which they are said to be deeply dipped) now carrying on for the removal of the young Queen of Portugal from beneath the protecting arm of Britain. We say they ought to know this : for if they are innocent of the fact, they may also be ignorant of the mur mured charge ; and if they are' commlitting the offence, they should learn, that they do not escape observation. It is said, then, that they have incited or prompted Austria, to send a minister to themselves, tb demand from theau formally, the burrender of the person of the young Queen of Portugal: and such minister or agent is accordingly arrived---aMoanieour ,L-Z-= =-.a.. i n the f..... ecutioi i Il -? certed tlAision, requiring the important s d ing litile body, to be delivered up to Austrisa" a: ;Atule svo-in such term ' they would not have used, but for the seret ment.

The fall of Varna. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 31 March 1829
The fall of Varna. MORNIGO JouRNA---Varna has indeed fal. len, under circumstances which reflect eternal disgrace on the Russians, and consign to infamy the wretch, who betrayed and deserted the brave man who had so long defended that important fortless. The very last hour the Turks had repulsed every attempt to take the town either by stratagem or by storm. On the 7th of October, those lRussian troops who had penetrated the Breaches, had been compelled to retreat, and every condition of surrender offered by the Emperor, had beenr? rejected by the Captain Pacha. But Jussif Pacha infamously betra ed him-induced his troops lo leave the fortress and these troops, with this Jussuf at their head went over to the enemy. He could have had al. most any terms-the Russians would have paid any price for the fortress-they would, we be. lieve, have given every ruble of the Dutch loan for its possession-but the Capatan refused all their offers, and to the last declared-" no sur render." Jussif, h...

THE MONITOR. TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 31 March 1829
THE MONITOR. TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 1829 The following is the awkward and imp politic admission made by the paid official organ of Government, as it appeared in Tuesday's Gazette-- "In consequence of the inconvenience sustained &nbsp; by the inhabitants of Wallis' Plains, from there being no regular communication with Newcastle, and their letters being consequently obliged to lie in the Post Office at the latter place till sent for, we understand it is the intention of Government to extend the post to Wallis' Plains, taking Newcastle in the way. This will prove a source of considerable public benefit." General Darling took two years to con coct, devise, and arrange a post for New South Wales, having the plan of the late Acting governor (Colonel Stewart) all ready cut and dried to guide His Excellency's in vestigations into the subject. At the end of two full years, the Darling plan, as opposed to, or as an improvement on the Stewart plan, was at length put in force. Our Readers ...

N.E V S" BY THE FERGUSSON. (From the Morning Chroniele, Oc tober 18) In the Register of this day, Mr. Cobbett says, " She (the Church) 'sees, that if the (Ca tholics be, as to political and civil rights, put upon a level with Potestants of the Church, the Church of Ireland, at any rate, mustlgoon give up her tithes and enormous rents of land; that done, or indeed only begav, who is fool enough to believe that tithes will exist in England for a year? Not Mammy ; she is not fool enough to believe this : she knows that the whole would come turpbling d(own like a house from which the props are knock ed away. She is therefore in a state of great alarm; and when I say ¶ she,' I mean to in clude the whole Aristocraey ; to whom in fact belongs the distribution of the tithes and other property, called Church property." It is curious enough that the opinion here expressed by Mr. Cobbett, should be' almost universal on the Continent. T'he writers there believe, that the English AriBtocracy are...
