Domestic Intelligence. SYDNEY MECHANICS' SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 February 1835
SYDNEY MECHANICS' SCHOOL OF ARTS. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] WE had the pleasure of being present at the Annual General Meeting of this Institution, on the evening of Thursday last, and considering the indifference of the Australian public to any thing of this nature, we are happy to think it is now fairly established, and has every prospect of ultimate success. The Report read by the &nbsp; Secretary, Mr. Band, gave a concise account of the business of the past year, from which it ap- pears that the number of Members is between 70 and 80; and after paying all expenses, a balance of £84 still lies in the hands of the Treasurer, which, with the expected aid of Government (as recommended by the Right Honourable the Se- cretary of State for the Colonies) will enable the Institution to add largely to the library, already consisting of 600 volumes on general literature and science, and provide the necessary apparatus for the elucidation of lectures, twenty of which were delivered du...

COLONIAL POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
COLONIAL POLICE. We have been much annoyed at being told, by almost every respectable free emigrant who has spent a few weeks at Hobart Town on his way to this colony;that the police of the capital of Van Dieman's Land is incomparably superior to that of Sydney. We actually begin to believe the statement, strongly prejudiced in favour of our own colony as we confess we are; and 'we have 'been intending for some time past to drop a hint on the subject to the superintendent of police. If that department is' conducted in Sydney in an inferior style to the manner in which we are given to understand it is conducted at Hobart Town, it must either be because our laws are insufficient to repress the abominable nuisances that so frequently p'resent themselves to the eyes and the ears of the inhabitants of our colonial metropolis, or because they are not en forced. In the former case, the Legislative Council is to blame for not givinig us better laws; in the latter, the blame is imputable onl...

BARRISTERS AND ATTORNIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
BARRISTERS AND ATTORNIES. WE have not yet ventured to offer any opinion on a subject which has irecently been exciting a' considerable degree of interest m the'neighbour hlood of the' Suprme': Court-' 'we mean the division of the Bar: Our' silence has arisen partly from our own imperfect acquaintance with the subject, and partly from our being given to understand that enough, in all reason, had' been said on it elsewhere. For although we very seldom look at any. of the other colonial papers, and never when we either know or suspect 'that they contain anything either in the way of praise or of blame respecting an individual who, .as connected with the original establishment of this paper, has furnished a fruitful subject for many, a lame article to certain gouty and worn-out cotem poraries, we are not so entirely ignorant of what is passing in society around us, as not to know anything of the hubbub that has just been raised in the Supreme Court by-the proposed division of the Bar.

IN .Dr.: Lang's Historical and-Statistical Account of.

'" There is one: other speciesi; of cultivation which, I conceive; ' miglit at least be attempted in the colony,; ,I mean that of the tea-plant. That the climate of New South .Wales,. and especially of the settlements to the northward, is entirely congenial to -the constitution and habits of the tea-plant cannot be doubted. A fruit-tree of Chinese origin, called: loquet, has been long naturalized in the colony; and its fruit, which is of.a yellowish colour and about the size of a plum,, is sold in great -quantities" in. the.

SCIENTIFIC NOTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
SCIENTIFIC NOTICE. . DURING.a recent excavation at Illawarra, for tihe purpose' of sinking a well, on the estate of the Honourable A. Berry, a quantity of bituminized wood was discovered, of which a'specimen has been presented,to us. by Dr.. Nicholson, of Syd ney, who: has 'favoured . us ..'with the following remarks : ":The depth at which the bituminized wood, the subjectof the following brief observations, was dis covered, was about 12 feet." Its characters were those'of a black, brittle, ligneous substance, in portions of which the fibrous texture, and even the fibrils of the root were distinct. Those parts most solidified, presented a slightly glimmering, resinous lustre, the fracture being transversely conchoidal, and breaking longitudinally into splintery fragments. On being submitted to the action of the blow-pipe, it burnt with a bright yellow flame, yielding a strong bituminous, and acetous odour. This last fact is interesting, as disproving what a casual inspection might s...

Original and Select Poetry. THE TWO MONUMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
THE TWO MONUMENTS; . BY FELICIA HEMANS. BANNERS hung drooping from on high ; In a dim cathedral's nave, . . Making a gorgeous canopy O'er a noble, noble grave ! i And a marble warrior's form beneath, With helm and crest array'd, As on his battle bed of death, Lay in their crimson shade. Triumph yet linger'd in his eye, i 'Ere by the dark night seal'd;: And his head was pillow'd haughtily':. .On standard and on shield. And shadowing that proud trophy pile .With the glory of his wing, Ah eagle sat : yet seem'd the while Panting through Heaven to spring. He sat upon a shiver'd lance, There by the sculptor bound ; But in. the light of his lifted glance Was that which scorn'd the ground. And a hburning flood of gem-like hues From a storied window pour'd, There fell, there centred, to suffuse The conqueror and his.sword. A flood of hues!-but ane rich dye O'er all supremely spread, With a purple robe of royalty Mantling the mighty dead. Meet :was .that robe for him whvose name i Was a trum...

Original Correspondence &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney 13. Feb. 1835. Sir-Are you aware that a magistrate of this territory, who has no wife of his own, ac- tually went on board one of the female emigrant ships on her arrival in the colony, to select a con cubine, or two ? Are you aware that several &nbsp; married men, who have wives of their own, and reputable characters too, in our colonial society, are also indebted to Mr. Marshall and the Emi gration Board in a similar way ? Are you aware that in one instance the interference of a virtuous woman, the wife of a seemingly reputable mem ber of our community, to break up a liaison of this kind between her husband and his free emigrant female protegee procured her such treat ment from both of them, but especially from the latter, as to occasion her death ?-I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, ? ? ?
