I gave something towirds the col cection myself, and some other people I know did the same. It is natural for people to lilke to known what becomes of their money. I do not know exaet\ly who are the persons to ble held responsib le; bit, por haps, through your journal sRome informa tionll a li e got. Very likely, as you seem to be bent on upholding vwhat is riglht, you would be willing to giv' publicity to. t names of the subscribrs,li not to grayyT their vanity, if they ihve any, but for thi satisfaction oftthe.public.

SUGAR CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 3 November 1863
SUGAR CULTIVATION. Am?sb the unmistakeable signs of mate rial progress which we see on all sides, nonii is more gratifying than. the rapid and -certain extension .of -agriculture. Eoery fact which inereiises our knowledge of the science of cultivating. the earth is valuable ; and- when meui of intelligence and capital devote their energies and means to the determination.of facts suffi cient to form the basis of a system of eul tivation, they deserve to be regarded as public benefactors. The sugar plantation on the estate of the Heon. Louis Hope, at Cleveland, occupies one of the pleasantest situations in MIoret6n Bay.. It consists of an elevated triet of land. origially moderately timbered with ironbark, gum, and oak trees; and it is bounded on the south and cast--its leading aspect-by Raby Bay, and on tlhe iorth-enst by Boundary Creek; the western limit is formed by the dividing lines between the estate and the lands of-other proprietors.

OONSOC.t?PTIJON IN AMERICA. The pictare of the operations drawn by Dr. Mackay, of '!hct Tise.s, is by no eans. pleasing and. edifying ,In Now Elngland, he says, "where the draft has not been contested with violence as in Ncw? York and 1the North-West the pru dent and' canny' people seem to have dis covered that there, are other and better means of avoiding unpalatable military service than by.taking up arms in the streets, plunderidg shops, burning down orphan asylums, and hangig ing innofensive nerocs. Persuasion 'being better than force in: their estimation, they have re solved to persuade the inedical gentlemein of their villages, towns, and cities, to testify to their physical incapacity to per form military duty."

The Precss-lis boon described 'as :'tih? Foi rth Estate of the Realm ; but it.. is not so. If Tav ic'anemiber rightly, it w?is Lord StTalley,who ddscribehod it as.a second reprcsenitation of :thc thliird etate. This is nearer the isiark; though .-it is not exactly true, seeing that- the press repro sents, or professes to represent, all thieoo estates.

Its place of power is not defined by any writtenou constitution, and its acts are in our day contrlled, for the most part, by by no written statute,.bnt only by its own good sense. In its iilodes of expression, the newspaper press of our country usually keeps: far'within the bounds which the law .preleribg;; it voluntarily prescrihes for itself a l?w which hab no authority but that of taste.
