No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839

The Bishop of Durham presided at a dinner of the British Association, and took the opportunity of introducing to the notice of the company the claims of a lady, Mrs. Taylor, "a handstnoe woman, and well dressed ton," as the Bishop naively ex pressed himself, who, being the daughter of a mathematician, had cultivated etience with success, and published a work on navigati.0n, which h,: believed to be thei best extant. Ihe lBishop further said, he was exerting himself to procure from Go vernment a pension for this lady, who now teaches navigation,-some of her pupils being old Captains of sixty !

ENGLISH OPINION OF IRISH MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839

ENGLISHI OPINION OF IRISH MEMBERS. It will be recollected, that Hr. Ashton Yates was formerly candidate for Bolton. I-le received 482 unbought, independent votes, and polled only 10 votes fewer than his successful oppon-nt Mr. Bolling. We suspect, that if Mr. Yates were now to be come a candidate for Bolton, he would fall considerably short of the support' then honestly given him. How is this ? Mr. Yates's character for independence, like that of his friend Mr. Robert Hutton, has been materially injured by connexion with Mr. O'Conne'l. People speak freely, and not very respectfully, of the political coun duct of both these gentleman. With res pect to Mr. Yates, we find the following re marks in the lollon Free .Jress " We do not mean to assert that all the Irish Liberal Members were obedient to the Downing street whip, in the votes they gave during last session; but it cannot be denied that a very large, number of them seemed to have no higher object in view than to p'ease Ministers...

The epistle was in verse, and congratulated him on attain ing his civic dignity. The letter was found in an old pocket-hook, which Neate, amolng other things, purchased in the city at the sale of property belonging to a person named Hathaway, a descendant of Shak speare's wife, Anne Ha:haway. Neate advertised the document, and a gentleman waited on hiw -to treat for the purchase. He gave hint £100, and Neate afterwards ascertained he was no'other than Sheridan, who had been sent by the the prince regent.

CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839

CANADA. RESIGNATION OF LORD DuRABsr.-The Governor-General has publicly announced his determination to resign as soon as official information of the late proceedings in the House of Lords, relative to his measures, shall have reached him. Lord Durham has undoubtedly done much to tranquiliaz the Canadas; and as he became better acquainted with the charac ter and disposition of the people he was appointed to govern, was preparing to effect more permanent and important good. The substitution of a stranger in his place at such a juncture, cannot but be productive of great embarrassment, if not of more serious evils. Whatever course his lordship might have pursued, circumstances have clearly shown that he could not have escaped censure, since the canadian loyalists have been abusing him for too much leniency, at the very time when a majnrity of his own order in Eng land were condemning him for undue severity.-Nero York Enquirer.

English Extracts. THE THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839

English Extracts. THE THEATRES. The season of the Winter Houses has fairly set in ; Covent Garden, foremost in the field, disclosed its array last Monday; Drury Lane opens next Monday. the Adelohi also, and the Olympic to-night; the St. James's is to let. At Covent Garden, the same system is to be pursued as that which gained Mac nEADYs first season of management such credit, and made the theatre so agreeable to persons of taste and decorum. The company is stronger than before by the addition of Vanhenhoff; but in comedy Mrs Glover's absence leaves a large gap of gaiety unfilled, and in opera, Frazer is a poor substitute for Wilson, though Miss Rainforth will be welcomed in lieu of Miss Shirreff. More "restorations" of the text of Shakspeare are promised, and a greater stress is laid upon the produ tion of novelty-in the present state of the drama the greatest and almost the only source of attraction. Macready has reserved himself till Monday when he appears in Hamlet On the opening...

I am well aware that the views which I advo cate are at present very unpopular in Syd ney. and that their unpopularity is in no small degree toube attributed to the power futl influence ex'-ercised over the public mind in this colony by your own leading articles. 1 therefore anticipate a cold reception, if not direct oppos:tion at your hands. You may possibly pour out upon me the vials of your wrath, for my having recommended as I have done in my former letter, to vest in Commissioner Mayne, a discretionary power to shoot every black rman or woman who many be detected in the net of spearing either men, cattle, or sheep.

NEWS OF THE DAY. We are happy to find that Captain Sturt proceeds with a corps of assistant survey ors to South Australi' by the Jo,in Pirie, to succeed Colonel Light and his staff. who have all resigned office at Adelaide, to the infinite detriment of that rising settlement. For want of the land bought by the unfortunate C,,lonists, being mea surecd the plough has never vet been put into the ground, thonggh the population is now above 5 000 souls. We have been favoured with a copy of Mr. a'Beckett's Lectures at the Mechanies' School of Arts, for which we return our acknowledgements. They are worth the attention ofthe public, particularly tha fair sex. In the dustralian is a letter signed " Nautical," in wlhich the writer states, that.nlthough the north entrance to More ton Bay is safer than the south, the pilot there makes rise of the later. We com mend the pilot to the orders of his supt, rior, which we suppose to be Captain Nichol-on. If not, let the commandant at Mureton Bay int...

THE "GOOD" PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839

TH-E " GOOD" PEOPLE. Whatever other results may flow from the great popular demonstrations which political events from time to time ejall forth, they never seem to have the effect of elicitiltt from the press one word of genuine fellow feeling for the classes whose sufferings give rise to them. There are three tones, in fact, in which these cries of the people are resporded to-all sadly remote front the true.concord. 1. That of liere and noisy ndvocacy. This involves a con-idlerable portion of the tadhtnai press. which is too apt to echo the mere anger of popular meetings, and usually fails to rtfle.t the just human feelings that give to all such fermentattions of the public mintl their real respectability and importance. It is not enough to state truly the grievnnce or grievances under w.tich the classes, thus uniting for redress, labour, if justice he not done to the moral character of the most patient, good tempered people on the face of the globe 'The Rladical press, flr the mos...

IN EQUITY.—Before Mr. Justice Willis. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 February 1839

IN EQUITY.--Before Mr. Justice Willis. QUEEN V. ROBSON AND OTHERS.-This was an application to set aside a deed of conveyance made by Sarah Robson, one of the defendants, while her husband was yet living. It appeared that she had purchased some property, and conveyed it in trust to a third party (one of the defendants), for the benefit of her children by a former husband. The creditors of Robson had levied under a warrant granted by the sheriff, and sold the property, and now applied to the Court to set aside the con- veyance. The answer to the bill, alleged that the husband and wife were not living together at the time the wife purthased the property, nor at any time afterwards; that he had left her destitute, and she had been dependent wholly on her own exertions - Mr. Justice Willis said that did not alter   the law; but in consideration of the cir- cumstances, Mrs. Robson should not be made liable to costs, but the other defend- ants must.-Conveyance set aside, and a...
