SOIWUBTIO IITTaiX.IiICBlITOa. MECHANICS' SCHOOL OF ARTS. MR. RAE'S FIRST LECTURE ON THE ENGLISH LANGUAUE. ON Tuesday evening, Mr. Rae delivered his first Lecture on thcTinglish.Language, at this Institution, before anuirierousand respectable audience. After referring to the neglect of the study of the English language both in Scotch and English schools, while years were devoted to mastering the difficulties of Latin and Greek, heproceeded :-Notwithstanding the silly objections that were raised by some to devote any time to such an insignificant study as that of the English language, he hoped that he could'place sufficient reliance upon the intelligence of his audience to save him the necessity of proving that their native language-the language in which they must think, 'speak, and write, by which they hoped to please and persuade,-that told them of the loved ones, and all theywere thinking, saying, and doing, on the other side of the globe,-was well worth all the attention they coul...

s. ...«-- ? ? -.: . . . _. I àBOJLIBH aXTBACIS. j ROYAL COMMISSION OF FINE ARTS. WHITEHALL, APRIL 25, 1842. - The Commissioners appointed by the Queen for the purpose of inquiring-first, whe- ther on the re-building of Her Majesty's Palace, at Westminster, wherein Her Par- liament is wont to assemble, advantage might not be taken of the opportunity thereby afforded of promoting and encou- raging the fine arts in the United King- dom, and secondly, in what manner an object of so much importance might be most effectually promoted-have resolved, that it would be expedient for the further- ing of the objects of their inquiry, that means should in the first place be taken to ascertain whether fresco-painting might be applied with advantage to the decora- tion of the Houses of Parliament. 2. Although some years must elapse before the walls of the new buildings can be in a fit state for paintings of any kind, yet, as fresco painting has not hitherto been much practised in this country, and...
THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 29 September 1842
THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1842. GEORGE COX,- of Winburn, Penrith, Esq., called in aud examined ; 1. Do you find the supply of labour more adequate to your wants at present than in former years? I do. 2, Have wages ia conséquence beca I'considerably reduced?'' ' Thay*' have bceu reduced, but not very considerably ; ' in' respect to rations, however,' we have been enabled, to do away with tea and sugar in most cases, which has much reduced our expeuscs. 3. Do you consider that at the present rate of wages, the growth of wool is remu- nerative to the settler ? Taking the growth of wool, and the sale of stock together, I think it hardly is j and therefore, the growth of wool alone, certainly will not pay the expenditure j but with the wool, and a ready remunerating market for stock, sheep farming would pay in most seasons. At present, I feel it impossible to pay my servants' wages. 4. What is the state of the market for surplus stock at the present time ? There is no demand at a remunerating p...

m\t Agîmes fttormng ftrrallr. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1842. " Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." EVIDENCE OF THE IMMIGRATION REPORT. [CONTINUED.] ALTHOUGH we are rcpublisbjng in our own columns the whole of the evidence appended to the Immigration Ruport, we shall yet be rendering some service to the colony by collecting from the scattered mnss the opinions entertnined by the seve- ral witnesses as to the extent, the causes* and the cure of the present distress ; and placing them in juxtaposition under their respective heads. "We begin with the fact, that the great ruling interest of the country is now in a btate of the deepest depression. I. DEPRESSION or THE PASTORAL INTEREST.- Mr. ICELY, an cxtenshc grazier and landed proprietor, holding up- wards of 40,000 acres of purchased land, was absent from the colony from the be- ginning of 1840 to the commencement of 18-12, and states that between the periods oi'his departureand return, there had taken place in the circumstances of th...
TUESDAY, JUNE 14, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 29 September 1842
I TUESDAY, JUNE 14, 1842. I Laurence V. Dalhunty, Esq.. recalled and ' further examined : 1. Have you ever known the price of grazing land mid of stock so cheap in the Colony as at this moment ? In the years 1828 and 1829, stock was as cheap or cheaper than it is now, owing to the de- pressed state of the Colony during that period. 2. Have you ever considered the possi- bility of reducing the money wages of shepherds, or labourers generally, by giving them an interest in your sheep or stock establishments, or by commuting sheep or stock for money wages ? I have in several instances paid part of wages in cattle, in- stead of money ; I have found that some of the Immigrants, particularly the Scotch, prefer this mode of remuneration. 3. Would not that system, where the sale of cattle is so restricted as at present, afford great relief to the settlers ? It i would be paying wages in property instead of money, and would so far be beneficial. 4. Would it not assist materially in re; movin...

In what part of the colony are you * settled 1 lu the Wellington district. 2. As an owner of purchased land, or an occupier under a depasturing license ? As an occupier under a depasturing license. 3. Can' you state to the Committee what you suppose to be the extent of the land you occupy ? Icannot; my stations arc soi unconnected. 4. Can you say what may be the area of your head station ? About 6,000 acres. 5. What description of stock have you there ? ' Principally sheep, with some few head 'of cattle. o'. Whatnumber of sheep might 6,000 acres be considered generally adequate to keep ? That depends principally on the seasons, and the description of the lund ; the seasons latterly have been very bad, hut in ordinary seasons, I might keep with advantage from about l,800to 2,000 sheep. 7. With cattle besides? The ...
