Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 23 May 1831
Domestic Intelligence. On Monday last, being the day appointed for the interesting spectacle of presentation of new colors to H. M. 39th regiment, the regiment was drawn out in the Barrack Square, forming three sides of a square, in the centre of which, a drum and stool were placed ; shortly after twelve o'clock his excellency the Gover- nor came on the ground, accompanied by his stall, and after the usual salute on such occasions, the new colors were brought out and placed near the drum, the old ones being in the rear. The Venerable the Archdea- con then lead a prayer, after which his Excellency addressed the regiment to the following effect. " Gentlemen,—The colors which I present to you this day, are a tribute to the gallant conduct you have evinced in the defence of your country. It confers a great pleasure on me in being commissioned to pre- sent them to you as a memento of continental engage- &nbsp; ments, which in their results, were so glorious to your country, and s...

The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, MAY 23rd, 1831. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 23 May 1831
The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, MAY 23rd, 1831. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." We have been favoured with the loan of a Mauritius Gazette ; its contents are merely the Acts, &c of the Government, and being of an old date are not worth &nbsp; extracting ; but we cannot pass the pre- sent opportunity without observing that it is a Government Gazette, very properly kept exclusively for the publication of Official Notices without note or comment. It would appear by this, that the Go- vernment of the Mauritius does not stand in need of a political champion, at an enormous expense, as other Colonial Go- vernments we could name ; consequent- ly the authorities there are preserved from all the evils attendant upon so strange a course of proceeding. Some Colonies present to our view a most extraordinary mode of management on the part of their Authorities, that of supporting (perhaps unintentionally), political agents, who raise dissensions, and cause much dis- content and ...

TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD" [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 23 May 1831
TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD" &nbsp; GENTLEMEN,—As the question of putting a duty upon foreign wheat is occupying the atten- tion of the Legislature ; the following recollec- tions of the Com Laws of England, may per- haps be useful ; if so they are at your service. &nbsp; I have added a few observations which are gleaned from experience, and which may not be found uninteresting. Yours, &c. AN ENGLISH FARMER. Recollections of the Corn Laws of England. There are four periods in the year at which the Ports can be opened for the importation of grain, or shut against it, viz. the 15th February, the 15th May, the 15th August, and the 15th November. .Suppose the Ports shut, they can only be opened (except by Act of Council in cases of emergency) by the average price of the five maritime Counties, the four weeks preceding one of the above dates, being at or above 50s. per qusuter of eight bushels, if it be 50s. the lowest price at which the Ports can open fo...
Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 23 May 1831
Original Corespondence. TO THE EDITORS OF THE " SYDNEY HERALD." Gentlemen,—I began to imagine on the appearance of the first numbers of your Journal that you had not ob- served that medium which had been professed, subse- quent ones, however, have convinced me that yon ad- vocate both sides, if they tend to the general good, and condemn them when detrimental. The subject, upon which I offer the following re- marks, affects public and private interests ; but as I consider the welfare of a large proportion ot the com- munity is concerned, that is paramount to private con- siderations, therefore I request the insertion of this letter. It is a well known fact, (and has often been before the public) that on the arrival of prisoners in Sydney, the money and any valuuble property they may pos- sess, are taken from them, and deposited in the hands of Messrs. Campbell and Co., there to remain until the depositer is free, or has obtained some indulgence, and for which amount then receive 7½ p...
The Sydney Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 23 May 1831
The Sydney Races. The .Public, who had been much disappointed at the postponement of the Races, in consequence of the un- favourable state of the weather, were in high glee at the few fine days that preceded the time appointed, and were resolved to make ample amends. The first day, Wednesday, was one of the finest we had had for some time, and at an early hour vehicles &nbsp; of every description were seen sallying forth to the scene of contest ; every wheel in Sydney was put in motion, except the wheelbarrows, which had not their turn in the list of carriages, until the evening, when they were carry ages to the people who were re-turning, dizzy from the weal their fortunes had experienced, in the'"Wheel of Fortune"; or whose heads were turned with returns, or draughts at the shrine of " Back us" Every thing was in requisition ; the dashing four-in-hand with beef-steak, collar, and tits of blood and bone ; the ««von orse shay" with tit bits of titivated flesh and blood ! wit...
