rO THE, EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney, December 14, 1835. SIR,-'-I expected to have seen somine remarks in your last number on the late St. Andrew's Din ner, but I have been' disappointed. I confess I was not quite pleased with the whole of the proceedings on that occasion. In the' list of toasts prepared by the. Stewards and printed for the dinner-party, there ,as '' The Clergy of the Colony," among a great many others. Now, Mr. Editor, this was a: toast which every person would have explained in his own way Why then did the Chairman, Mr.: M'~Leay, go so far out of his way as to alter the toast by giving Bishop Broughton and the Clergy of the Colony? I have nothing to say against Bishop Broughton; but why should he be made the subject of particu lar encomium among the clergy of the colony at a St. Andrew's dinner'?'- Mr. M'Leay, no doubt, explained' the mi'tter aTrid- assured the company' he meant no offence; but I don't like explana tions of this kind. It is much better when they...
Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 17 December 1835
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sir.-I am settler at Swan River, and I believe well known to' many respectable men in Sydney. I observe you notice a leading article in The Perth Gazette of the 17th October, allow me through your paper to remark upon it. Why the Editorof The Perth Gazette, should take so much trouble to show the nakedness of the land as he does--I am at'a loss to account for, &nbsp; by showing that the labourers of the colony are in so deplorable a state as he describes, and also by exposing the folly of the Government of Swan River, which he decidedly does by stating --that in order to employ the spare hands, some court'of law is to be built (for the benefit of the &nbsp; colony no doubt). Would he not have done wisely as a supporter of the Government to recommend to them to employ those idle hands in making roads and approaches to the different locations in the colony by removing the obstructions to the bar of Swan River, which a gentlemen well quali...

THE NORTHERN SETTLEMENTS. ''THE originator of the plan of colonization for &nbsp; New South Wales," observes the: late Colonel COLLINS, in his Account of the English Colony in New South Wales, dedicated by permission to the-Right Honorable Lord Viscount SYDNEY, and published in the year 1798, "was too conspicuous a character to be overlooked by the narrator of its rise and progress. The benevolent mind of YOUR LORDSHIP led you to conceive ,this method of redeeming many lives, that might.be forfeit to the offended laws; but which, being preserved, under salutary. regulations, might, afterwards become, useful to society: and to your patriotism the &nbsp; &nbsp; plan presented a prospect of commercial and po litical advantage. The following pages. will, it &nbsp; is hoped, serve to evince with how much wisdom. the measure was suggested and .conducted ; with what beneficial effects its progress has been &nbsp; attended, and what future benefits th...
