To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 November 1830

    TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.   Sir,- I am obliged by your attention to the few lines I sent you, and hope that others besides myself will avail them- selves of your kind offer of allowing a place in your columns to the interests of farming. It has often occurred to me, that there is nothing in which most of the farmers of this Colony are so deficient, as in some of the fundamental principles of their profession, both in the care of stock, and in tilling the   land; and with our permission, therefore, I will allot a few       words to each of these subjects in turn, although I fear that I may thereby trespass upon you for a longer time than may be either convenient or agreeable. I have observed that many of the stock-holders of this place make one very great mis- take - they run upon numbers, rather than upon good sorts of live stock, not considering that a bad animal eats as much a...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE.           (From the Sydney Monitor and the Australian.)         The following remarkable circumstances       transpired at Parramatta a few days since:- A young woman on the point of marriage, and who was living in a house where sbe and her intended were to reside after marriage, and which had been furnished by the bridegroom elect, " took tiff" at something which transpired; in consequence of which,   she had the backs and legs of the chairs, legs and flaps of the tables, &c. cut off, and together with the wedding clothes, which she tore to ribbons, had them packed up and sent to her intended; who, instead of shooting, drowning, or hanging himself, as usual on such occasions, felt very happy in es- caping the caresses of such a termagant.       The ...

English Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 November 1830

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE.     A merchant at Marseilles has fitted up a steam vessel, like a furnished hotel, in which he puposes to convey persons to Algiers, who may be curious enough to wish to witness the bombardment.           If you cannot inspire a woman with love   for you, fill her above the brim with love for herself - all that runs over is yours.                   A person advertises in a London paper for   a man servant, of light weight, who is able to look after a horse and a gig, brew, milk, and kill pigs, write a good plain hand, and wait at table.   ''What,"' said a lady, "do you think of a pla- tonic?" "Madam," replied the gentleman, very solemnly, ''I think, like all other tonics, it is very exciting." A gentleman, the other da...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 December 1830

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIAL TIMES.       Sir - Perhaps the following method of rearing calves, which is commonly used with great advantage in many parts of England, may be thought worthy a place in your Journal. I beg to add, that I have tried it myself, although not in this Colony, and can therefore bear testimony to its excellence. Take one quart of linseed to six quarts of water, and boil ten minutes, when it will become a jelly; make an infusion of hay with boiling water, from the best hay you can procure, and if you have a little skim milk it may be added, althoug it is of little consequence. Give the calves a plentiful meal of this three times a day, and I will answer for it that the calves shall look better, at any given age, than those which run with their mothers. - I am, Sir, your humble servant, Elpha.

Ignis Fatuus. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 December 1830

IGNIS FATUUS.         An English Paper has the following: - On Tuesday even- ing, the 5th instant, between the hours of nine and ten, a farmer of the name of John Stephens, who was returning   from Eustom to Fakenham, in Norfolk, had passed about half the distance, when be observed a most singular appear- ance. A mass of light gradually spread from the top of his horse's ears, till it quite covered the surface and the space between the ears, while a few luminous drops were sprinkled on the mane. The light was bright and sparkling - a clear amber with a slight mixture of blue - and to the rider it bore all the appearance of being covered with glow worms. He rubbed bis hand over one of the animal's ears, but could feel nothing, and ihe light again covered the part the moment the   hand was withdrawn. There was no sensation of heat -no smell of vapour - and the horse, which was going at a very gentle pace, se...

Miscellanes. DEAR DONALD, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 December 1830

MISCELLANEA.         Dear Donald,                    The philosophers' story, which I promised in my last to give you, is briefly as follows:- Some few months ago, there arrived in this Cojony, a very remarkable personage; his late sojourn had been in India, perhaps the most fertile soil in the world, for the growth of pride, arrogance, and an exalted opinion of oneself, and probably one of the most barren for the cultivation of those principles which your good mother, Donald, has inculcated in your breast for your guide through   this earthly pilgrimage. This gentleman, like Confucius of old, must needs signalize himself, by founding a sect of phi- sophers; and, considering of what materials a Van Diemen's   Land population must necessarily be formed, it may be con-   ceded, that the making choice of this spot for the scene of his labours, i...

Isabelle. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 December 1830

ISABELLE.                 Father. - On yonder cliff, which frowns opon the flood that plays around its base, a castle stood - Where yon grey ruin spreads its mould'ring walls, And echoes only to the midnight squalls Of hideous night-birds. I remember well A tale, wert thou to hear (which once befel     The lady fair of yon proud castle's lord)   Would make thy blood run cold. Nor fire, nor sword, Nor venom'd draught, destroy'd fair Isabelle, But - by her perjur'd lord she guiltless fell! Son - Father, unfold the tale. I oft have heard Some dark mysterious deed half murmur'd, Relating to yon crumbling pile; that sprites   Were heard, or seen to flit, on moon light nights, Around its walls.- The moon shines cheerfully Upon thus placid bay, which, fearfully, Twinkles to the chaste cold beam, and still, Is every sound - save from the...

George Tierney, for whom, during his life time, his Royal Highness expressed the greatest regard, without reference to political consi- derations.   The King, it is said, has sent the green rib- band, which he wore himself, with an affectionate letter, to his Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex.   Her Majesty is the daughter of George, late Duke of Saxe Meiningen.

SYDNEY NEWS>         It is our heart-rending task to record one of     the most barbarous murders ever perpetrated by the Abori-   gines of this Colony. Captain Logan, of the 57th regiment, Commandant of Moreton Bay, had for some time been di- ligently employed in surveying that part of the territory, and executing a chart for the public service. His labours having been nearly completed, he left the settlement on the 18th ult. to make his final survey - and which, alas proved to be final in the most awful sense of the word. He was accompanied by a boat's crew and one private servant. On the morning of the fatal day, when they had reached about fifteen miles beyond the lime kilns,situated about seventy from the coast, a group of natives made their appearance; and manifested a very unfriendly feeling towards the party; in the afternoon, however, the lamented Commandant ordered his hor...
