Domestic Intelligence. OUR NEW LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 February 1836

i" ottei tic if ntelligence. QIOUR NEW LIBEL CASE. Mn. NIcoL ALLAN, the lawyer, has thought proper to commence. an -action for libel against the, Editor' and Publisher of' this paper, for giving 'irisertion.in this journal to, the 'letter-of A Leil Scotchmnia, published in Tne 'CoLONIST Neivspalier on the °17th of December' last. The Editor of The' Australian, in alluding to the circumstance in. a late number, most cordidlly congratulates himself and his handful of readers on there being no such 'actions for libel brought against the' Editor of that Journal,. which, in comparison with :this -paper, he is' willing to admit is but a milk-and-water publication. .. For our own part we are quite willing that. the worthy Editor should derive all the consolation fromnithe circumstance which it' is fitted to impart.: In attempting, however, to account, for the circum stance itself, we would advise him to reflect upon the sensible question of the' poet: Who breaks a. butterfly upon the wheel...

IMPROVEMENTS IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 February 1836

IMPROV EMENTS IN' SYDNEY. ORDERS .have passed,- through the Stiirveyor General's Oflice for the improvement of Brick -field flill, and for filling uIp the hollow between it and the turnpike. One hundred men are -to be employed at'tlie work, 'vhich is to be com menced ' immediately. It is, to b'e regretted, however, that it -will affect. the value of the houses on" both sides of the road most ma terially, as the surface of the road when coih pleted' will'be about thirty feet above the site of some of them. .., °The: Government. also intend. to.. commence cutting a Tunnel through the rock at the back of the Custom ITouse, and thus to connect George and Kent Streets ; tte distance through is' not 'more (we should suppose) than from ,one hun dred and twenty to two hundred yards, but it will prevent the necessity of vehicles being compelled to be dragged up the long sandy hill to Dawes' Battery, and save them a--long distance besides.

NEW ZEALAND, TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 February 1836

NEW ZEALAND, TEMPERANCE. WE were in error a few weeks ago, in regard to the view which had been taken by His Excellency the Governor, of the proposed regulations for the discontinuance of the importation and sale of ar- dent spirits at the Bay of Islands in New Zea land. His Excellency had previously approved of the regulations adopted at Hokianga, prohibit- ing the introduction of ardent spirits altogether; and that approval had been announced in The Government Gazette, a circumstance to which we had not adverted. But, the regulation pro- posed by the Missionaries and others for the Bay of Islands, being substantially the same as those adopted at Hokianga, His Excellency having ap proved of the latter could not but approve of the former also, and consequently disapproved of Mr. Busby's proposed amendment, the effect of which, indeed, would have been to make the law no law at all, by allowing any person to break it with impunity. But what use would a British Resident in New Zealand ...

SINGULAR COINCIDENCE. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT INDEX.] SOME short time ago, after reading in the pages of that hoary sinner the Sydney Gazette, a para graph relating to those worthy members of society Mr. O'Shaughnessy and Mr. William Watt; we happened, by the merest chance, immediately thereafter, to cast our eye on a piece of ship news in an English paper of a late date, which runs thus, and which, we extract that, " all who run may read." : The Hibernia, on the 30th ult. in lat. 30° lon 27° W., fell in with the William Watt, dismasted, waterlogged, and apparently deserted. The crew   appeared to have been taken out by some other vessel, as the sails were all unfurled and the rigging unrove. A day or two afterwards, a lugger was observed standing toward the wreck.-Hampshire Telegraph Mr. Tegg of George Street, is about to commence a periodical to be called Tegg's Monthly Magazine.

Select Poetry. ACCOMPLISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836

' r ACCOMPLISHMENTS. BY JANE TAYLOR. . .How is it that masters, and science, and art, : One spark of intelligence fail to impart, Unless in that chemical union combined, Of which the result, in one word, is a mind.? .A youth may have studied and travell'd abroad; May sing like Apollo, and paint like a Claude; .And speak all the languages under the pole,: And have every gift in the world-but a soul.'. That drapery, wrought by the leisurely fair; Call'd patchwork, may well to such genius coipare; Wherein every tint of the rainbow appears, And stars to adorn it, are forced from their spheres. There glows a bright pattern (a sprig or a spot), 'Twixt clusters of roses, full-blown and red.hot; Here magnified tulips, divided in three, Alternately shaded with sections of tree, But when all is finish'd-this labour of years, A mass unharmonious, unmeaning appears, . 'Tis showy, but void of intelligent grace, It is not a landscape, it is not a face. 'Tis thus Education (so call'd in'our school...
