Wi\t Jfestrntg Älormng $rralü. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27,1842. " Sworn to no Matter, of no Sect am /.' EVIDENCE OF THE IMMIGRATION REPORT. Since we last noticed the Report of the Committee on Immigration for the pre- sent year, our attention has been directed to other topics, which seemed to be of more, immediate interest ; but we now re- turn to that very important publication. The body of the Report having been already disposed of, pur present business is with that part of its appendix containing the evidence. The number of witnesses examined was no less than twenty-one, and their evidence occupies fifty-nine foolscap pages. The witnesses weie Messrs. Merewether, Savage, Cap- tains Innes and Browne, Major Chris- tie, Messrs. Miles, Icely, Dulhunty, George Cox, H. O'Brien, George M'Leay, Robert Scott, Marsh, E. Mackenzie, F.

LOWER HAWKESBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 27 September 1842

LOWER HAWKESBURY. September 22.—An inquest was held last week in the vicinity of Lower Portland Head, upon the body of a settler named Johnson, before the district coroner, J. Dawe, Esq. From the evidence adduced it appeared that the deceased met his death from apoplexy, and having been long subject to fits, the usual verdict was recorded. Scarcely a day passes but we are made acquainted with some new fnct arising from the protracted suspension of a Com t of Re- quests in this quarter-or rather sufficient power being vested in our bench to entertain cases of delinquency arising out.of the Master and Servants Act. During tfie past week two or three parties who were under engage- ments to settlers upon our river have ab- sconded. In one instance the bolter was overtaken and compelled to surrender the more valuable portion of his unlawful pro- perty. The other wholesale scoundrel, who it seems has been long given to these hasty flights, has left the quarter with a charge of felony agai...

THE ABORIGINES. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 27 September 1842

THE ABORIGINES. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. | Gentlemen,-Firmly believing the truth of the declaration made in Sacred Writ, that God bath made of one blood all nations of men that dwell on the face of the earth," I conceive that in consequence of that com- mon 01 ¡gin, man, wherever he is to be found, whatever his colour, however debased his condition, has a right to demand the sym- pathy and assistance of his fellow-man,-and the greater his moral degradation, the stronger his claim upon his more exalted and privileged brother. Entertaining these opinions, my feelings have frequently been shocked Bince my ar- rival in this colony, by hearing statements of the cruelty and injustice practised upon the poor outcast, despised, Australian Abo- rigines. It is notj however, so much of the positive evils inflicted upon them, as of the negative, that I would complain. Upon see- ing one of these poor, emaciated, diseased, pitiable objects, for the first time, I thought, as I ...

WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 27 September 1842

WINDSOR. funious Driving, &c.-Although the prac- tice of driving and riding at an impetuous rate through the streets is not so frequent as formerly, it is far from being discontinued. However reprehensible this habit may be, there is one (which was some time ago no 'ticed) fully as dangerous, if not more so, viz., that of allowing three, tour, or five ¡risky horsos to trot or gallop ad libitum through the town, playing all manner of antics, without halters, and frequently without an attendant. Not a day passes by but individuals arc placed in imminent danger, and, unless an effectual stop be put such culpable negligence, some serious accident will certainly happen ere long. Butcher's Meat.-A very strong compe- tition has taken »lace here in this article of consumption. The best beef and mutton has been selling as low as 2jd. per lb., but the standard price is 3d. This has been occa- sioned by a rivalry between the sons of the cleaver, several of whom have lately entered the ...

I September 23.-Since I last wrote to you, the times have changed mightily, and the effects have had anything but a salutary tendency   upon many of the resident lieges, Fortu- nately, the most of the settlers of any consi- deration, in this district, are men of bottom, who, although severely twisted, have not been, and I am glad to think, will not be broken. "Caution" predominates in most of the crania of our stock-holders, with only a few excep- tions, otherwise the disastrous consequences would have been beyond conception : cattle and stock of all descriptions have certainly, upon more occasions than one, been sold at a sacrifice, but it must be a source of infinite pleasure to those who have had heavy engage ' \ -y- ";" - t ' - .> '.
