Colonial Politics. EDUCATION.—THE SUBJECT CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 5 February 1835
EDUCATION.-THE SUBJECT &nbsp; CONTINUED. In our last number we proposed to point out the propriety, the expediency and the &nbsp; necessity of conjoining religious instruction in some form or other with the general education of youth; &nbsp; &nbsp; K I.From the nature and design of edu- -r cation. '°''II. From the peculiar character and con- r i stitution of oui" colonial society.:L'. "ll; From the decidedly infidel and uto- E * pian :character of any system of education i that would presume, in a Christian country, c :",to consider. all religions as alike, or that i :'wuld cherish the preposterous expectation &lt; of conciliating in its favour all classes and I ,:a.t'ribes of men.

OF THE ORIGIN AND MIGRATIONS OF' THE POLYNESIAN NATION. Antarctic isle! thy mountains rise All dimly. o'er the western main;_ But gladly I regale my eyes With the bless'd sight of land again ! 0, O tis a welcome sight to me, Amid this wild and billowy sea ! Thy shores, methinks, sequester'd isle, Might forma fitting dwelling-place For men devoid of earthly guile; For mortals of a healvenlyrace ; For underneath thy cloudless skies Fancy might form a Paradise. Far different is the race that swarinms 'Along t y rivers, lakes and bays.: All horribly disguised their, forms, All treacherous their savage ways; Barbarian war their chief employ, And deadliest crueltyj their joy. The vile assassin's hideous yell, 'The murderer's terrific roar, The music and the speech of hell . Are heard along thy shelving shore ; While men, like lions in their...
GANG OF THIEVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 February 1835
GANG OF THIEVES. A CONSIDERABLE sensation has been excited at Odstoke near Salisbury, in consequence of the discovery of a gang of thieves, who have for some timie past conmmitted various depredations in thi? immediate neighbourhood. There is .scarcely a farm, mansion, or garden,' 6on which midnight-contributions have not "been levied, Last week, as one of the keepers on Lord :Radnor's -estate was surveying a portion of the property, which lies in a most unfrequented part of the Downs, bor dering on the forest called " The Great and Little Yews," he discovered a column of smoke issuing from t:.he iimbrageous foliage of one" of the largest trees, and anxious to discover the cause, he penetrated the w Wood, and following a narrow winding track, suddenly found himself introduced into what may, without any impropriety, be called a sylvan apartment. T'Ihis was formed by cutting away the lower branches of the tree, under which the bushes were stunted and de cayed, while the hazel, holly, ...

Edinburgh are not the men we:; conceive, them, to be if they, give more. than ,a civil, reception to the Concervative burgess of Inverness.' They will say to him in the words of Scott's High-, land heroines " What are you that have the tongue:? and the, habit of the, hound, and yet seek to lie dowvn. with the, deer?" The mere courtesies .of hospitality, they caninot be expected to withhold even from an undesired guest, but any thing, more will be a sane:' tion of -the backward policy avowed at Inverness, and treason to the cause of justice and improvement.' -Lord Brougham will appear before the .Edinburgh Reformers branded with his ...
AFFAIRS OF SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 February 1835
AFFAIRS OF SPAIN.. C WE alluded on Thursday last with reprobation to theC alarming Proposition of a national bankruptcy, im plied, though rot expressed, in the financial project of Count de Toreno, the Spanish MIinister, and we declared our, conviction - that the resources of Spain, if duly collected and honestly administered, would render such a 'calamity as unnecessary, as its occur rence wvitlout:necessity would be disgraceful. - It is calculated that one fourth of the soil of'Spain is still in possession of the church.. According to a. very moderate estimate, mnuch probably below the mark, it is said that this ecclesiastical portion yields a rent, or at least would yield a rent, of 5,000,0001. . sterling, or would bring; if, sold at 25 years' purchase, 125,000,0001. This is independent of the value of the buildings, of the live stock, and of the rent of houses in cities, which belong to the beneficiaries of cathedrals, to the higher clergy, or to monasteries, and which may proba...

[THIRD NOTICE.] BOURMONT fell with .the Parisian revolutioin of July; but it was not intil the 2nd of September that his successor to the governor-generalship of I Algiers, al1pointed by. Louis Philippe, arrived. 4 This successor was. Count Clauzel, one of Na po leon's generals, a mart distinguished by military i genius, and much respected for his political c(on sistency,.and honourable, gentlemanly character. Shortly after his arrival, Marshal Gerard, then minister at war, informed..the .Count that the 4 French government, already determined to keep possession of Algiers, .was,.now confirmed in its intention of. forming an important colony in its territory. The first step to be taken towards 4 this great end, was-to grant lands to colonists on the Matidja plain, and: then gradually to drive a4l the refractory native tribes back upon mount Atlas. But neither the. marshal who commanded nor the gener...

Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 February 1835
Original Correspondence. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONISER SIR,-Would it not be well to bring into public notice, the state and arrangement of the Female Factory at Parramatta; to which female convicts are generally accustomed to look, not so much as a place of punishment, as of relief from domestic, servitude, and from which they usually return worse than they went? If the testimony of an inmate lately returned to her service is to be believed, twenty women employed nominally in breaking, or rather tapping at stones, produced in one day, only one barrow load of broken pieces. Yours respectfully, A SUBSCRIBER: We are not aware of the circumstances con nected with the internal management of the Fac- tory to which a Subscriber alludes. We shall be &nbsp; glad however to be furnished with information by those who can afford it, as there cannot possibly be any desire on the part of the authorities to maintain any existing abuses in that ...
