INTRODUCTORY ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 20 August 1827

INTRODUCTORY ADDRESS, (By the Proprietors) In. presenting this Journal to the public, our principal czin is, to'establish a permanent mediuinm.of Colonial inform.. ation. 'The Periodicals of the day, have their relative meris. in, the popular estimation; but nine-tenths of their column;sare occupied with subjects of transient interest, and; that which is worthy of being remembered, lies buried in a mass ofprint: With only these frail and precarious teniures, men of learning or 'experience have had no inducement .to write, no sufficient stimulus to prompt their labours -nothing in which they ctdld place any deliberate evidence of what they have seen or known or felt; any, record of their existence. .They, to whom this silent destitution,.this conflnemet. from the sociability of mind, is' the worst form of exild, are znvited to witness our pr eparations for a more active scene; one' which, we trust, they may participate in,and thereby greatly enhance. " We are of no party. It is our d...

THE MONITOR. MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 20, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 20 August 1827

THE MONITOR. MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 20, 1827. OUR attention has been called by persons residing in Sydney, who are in the habit of tendering commodities' for the service of our Commissariat, to the veryshort notice which has been given of late before the said supplies are required to be furnished; and also to that other fact, which makes such short notice operate un fairly towards the public, namely, that by some means or other, information escapes from the Commissariat offices, of supplies being Wanted, before they are ad. vertised' in' the public papers. This is said to have been the case with the late advertisements for rice, and for various sorts of merchandize. IN the Gazette of the 30th ult. there appeared an ad vertisement calling on our Merchants and Shop-keepers, to send in their Tenders for 8,000lbs of rice by 12 o'clock on the 1st Inst. which allowed them only two days and a half to make up their minds on the subject. ,But those who had got informed by some means or other...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 20 August 1827

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. CAMPBELL TOWN RACES.—This rustic spot was the scene of unusual gaiety on Monday last. The Turf Club may smile perhaps at the idea of "Races" at Bunbury Curran; they may conceive them to be like the far-famed Donkey Races at Hickleton Fair, of which the Lyrist of Nature, Bloomfield, has said, they were " More famed for laughter, than for speed." Be this as it may, at an early hour " the Bush" 'assumed an appearance of animation, not unlike the return of a tribe of native Blacks to their haunts after a Corrobera, as from each cottage issued a joyous visitor. The roads resounded with the clattering of "hoof and heel; and   tyre and wheel," announcing the approach of youthful groupes, and of the more wealthy, though probably not more contented lords of the soil. Three good Races, (one for £50.) astonished the Currency Scions. It is said something like dissatisfaction was expressed at the result of one of the Races. "Jem Spinks" rode and lost! and a go...

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 20 August 1827

UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA.--The following letter was lately received by a distinguished Friend of the People, from a relative travelling.in the United     States : As, yet :I have given you no information relative to America, .having beent deterred by the magnitude of the subject, and from the wish to put it into a respectable shape, but I find that if I wait until then, the task will never be performed.. In the 'first place, set it down as an axiom, that as a people they are the first in the world, and essentially differing in certain points from the British. 'What is' practicable and easy therefore with them could not be safely engrafted upon us. In poli tical improvements we must follow at a humble distance. If they' are destitute of " Corinthian capitals," they have positively no commonalty or mob. In the towns, as labourers, something like it may be found in appear ance ; but the country is covered by yeomanry of the first description, who own the...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 August 1827

To THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR OF the illegality of the Government taking away your Convict-printers, there may be doubts; but . of the animus that prompted the act, there can be none. Your most inveterate foes, political as well as private, all concur as to the latter; while I, Mr. Monitor, do, not one moment hesitate as to the former. The Go venment, I consider, have not the power to take away: your printers; unless indeed they resort to the bayonet • -or the constable's staff. To talk about lending a man !---The Government have the. power to assign, or, to, keep.-and NO MORE. They did not keep the printers? No. They. were. turned over to you; ?you. clothed and fed them, therefore :they are assigned. .. , .: IT cannot be otherwise, Sir; admit that the Govern ment can lend, and .you admit .their power to nullify, (without even an act* of council) a British 'Act of Parli ament.

Second Letter to Miss—, at the South Creek, (continued from the Monitor, page 473.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 August 1827

Second Letter to Miss --, at the South Creek, (continued from the Monitor, pagS 473.) DEAR SISTER, I HAD almost forgot to describe to you Sydney on a .Market Day. You can't conceive what a lively scene it is. We all got up very early on Thursday morning, and having made the engagement, over night, were joined by Withers and one of his military friends, (such a handsome fellow i only a little insipid.) We met all the town at the market. Gentlemen and scavengers, ladies (tho' rather scarce) and he and she fish merchants, forming a heterogeneous mass, some of whom pushed by us with all the rudeness imaginable. I had on a new chintz morning robe, which I of course had washed im mediately afterwards, and sprinkled it with eau de luce, (plenty at Ferris's, and very cheap, only a dollar a bot tle.) The' market appeared to me to be quite a mart for every thing; there was barley and butter tubs; pota toes and ready-made clothes; pigs, soap, and sugar; tea, treacle, and tobacco;' and such a c...

They are indeed, scarcely a faction; and the whole thing, that used to be' called opposition, is become a mere nothing at ail,, presenting, in reality, no opposition at all to the Mi istry, and being, if possible, still more foolish than the Ministers themselves. Upon the great question of all, the paper money question, this faction has taken the lead in every think erroneous and mischievous. In short, the people, almost the whole of the people, des pise thib faction, this rump of faction, more than they hare ever despised any thing of the sort since I have had any knowledge of public affairs. This, therefore would be 'a pretty sheet-anchor for a Prime Minister.

THE MONITOR. THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 23, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 August 1827

THE MONITOR.   THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 23, 1827. Ws call the attention of our Readers to the Govern ment Notice in our last number dated the 2nd Inst, and headed with the title, " ROAD To BATHURST." Its ob ject is to induce a discovery if possible of a shorter and less difficult road from the Nepean River to West Ba thurst than the present one, which leads over the two precipice-like hills, of Mounts York and Blaxland. The rewards promised to persons making such a dis covery are, to free persons, " a grant of land, or cattle, or such other indulgence" as may be preferred by .the discoverer. If a discovery be made by ticket men or prisoners of the Crown, the reward is to be " in manner appropriate to their situations." WITR regard to the vagueness of these rewards, if the Government of these Colonies had not always been parsimonious in disbursing its rewards to explorers of the Territory, we should not have objected to the notice calling on Adventurers to trust to its g...

THE Court of Directors of the Australian Agricultu ral Company, were advertising in the London papers, for the hire of copper bottom ships of 350 Tons and upwards, to convey Merchandize, Passengers, Heoses, and Sheep, to Sydney. A.fatnl catastrophe, upon which a Coroner's Jury was sumnothed, occurred on Sunday night. A Police Con ductor, named John Duncan, a man of mild and peace able demeanour, returning to his home, found his wife under improper circumstances His passion getting the better of his reason; he struck and kicked her violently, from the effect of which she shortly. died. The un fortunate man is in custody until the Jury shall have determined his fate. A Coroner's Inquest sat on the body of the deceased, but no actual proof of the com mittal of the deed by her husband appeared ; it was therefore determined by the Jury, that the deed was perpetrated by some...
