"We are happy to learn, that considerable progress is already made in the new aque- duct io supply Hobart town witb water from the New tuwn rivulet* We have not as yet learned, ihe full plan intended, so as to be able clearly to detail it to our readers. One essential point, however, we trust will not be neglected, namely the formation of a suf- ficiently capacious reservoir at such a con- venient height as to enable the water to be conveyed from it to any part of the town at a moment's notice. In this climate especi ally, where the tains fall in bodies as it were, and the great proportion of the waters from them flows away immediately into the sea and is lost, and where we are annually visit- ed with one or more seasons of dry weather accompanied with great scarcity of this es- sential of human life, such a reservoir is es pecially necessary.

His Majesty's Government, we are glad to of observe, have sanctioned the immediate es- se tablishment of two publie schools, to be call- fe ed " The King's Schools," this one'at Sydney cc and the other at Paramatta. Upon this sub- pi ject we would anxiously renew the wish we .io have so often repealed, that the system of education adopted by the authorities iu these establishments may be on a truly libe ral and substantial scale, and that men of due ?respectability and talents may be employed, and adequately recompensed for the valuable services tbey are to be called upon to per- form. The great error, we repeat it, and the mischief of which cannot be too much enforced upon teachers, is tke setting the infant mind to grapple with subjects for which its immature strength is totally in- adequate-of which difficulty, wearsome- ness and disgust of learning are the natural consequences. So in truth it is in the physi- cal body-the office clerk is unfit to under- go the fatigues which are...
