SWEAxiNG with an ntpli'ted hand is a scriptural. act of religious worship, whereas, book.swearing is anI idolatrous; superstitious, Popish rite. ' Every oath,',' says the Rev. John Turner, of 'Christ's College, Cambridge, " is a part -of divine 'worship, being an acknowledgement ,of the Divine: Omniscience, justice, and power; includinig an ap peal to the Ibomer as a witness, aid a prayer to the' two latter, to dispose themselves either for our benefit or our hurt, as we assert truly or perform faithfully what we :affirm, deny, or promise."', This 'act of worship is performed in a scriptural manner' when 'it is done agreeably to Sdripture precept. and example, viz.withl the ril.O hand lited up to heaven. On the contrary, swearing,, by touching and kissing a book, is an idolatrous i'ite. It was an, article in heathen mythology "to: kiss ,whatever. god 'or 'idol they wor shipped.

JOINT STOCK COMPANIES. LAND AND "IMMIGRATION COMPANY. " R. CHANNING, the celebrated American writer, whose splendid Essays on the life and character of NAPOLEON, and on the lives and writings of FENELON and MILTON, have. won for him emin ent Eutopean, as well as the highest American, fame, has observed in a pamphlet on the subject, that the present age is remarkably distinguished from' all that have preceded it in the history of theworld; by the disposition which is now so ex tens iely evinced in civilized communities to act in masses, and to accomplish whatever may be deeniedof importance tb society by the combined efforts 'f numerous individuals, or in other words by regularly organized associations. In. the de partmnent of religion, for example, we have Bible Societies, Missionary Societies, Tract Societies, Christian Knowledge and Christian Instruction Societies.

Literature and Science. THE THAMES TUNNEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836

LITERATURE AND SCIENCE. THE THAMES TUNNEL. MANY plans were proposed, and several attempts were made prior to 1810, for opening a Road- way or a Tunnel under the Thames at Rother- hithe, independently of that made at Gravesend, by Dr. Dodd. The first at Rotherhithe was proposed by an experienced Cornish engineer miner (Mr. Vessey), but failing at the very first step, namely, in sinking the shaft, though but 11 feet in diameter, the scheme was soon abandoned. Revived, however, by a spirited speculator, (A friend to Mr. V.) several capitalists were prevailed upon to come forward, and to form a company, to resume the attempt ; the engineer limited his second attempt to that of a driftway across the river, which he opened at the depth of 76 feet below high water. This driftway was only 30 inches in width at the head, and 5 feet in height, and as an indispensable precaution was planked all the way. A second engineer, Mr. Trevethick, a bold and enterprizing miner, being engaged to co-opera...

COCKSWAINS AT NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 February 1836

COCKSWAINS AT NORFOLK ISLAND. JOHN HURLEY, one of the Cockswains at Norfolk Island, was married in Sydney, in December last, This man particularly distinguished himself on the occasion of the wreck of the schooner Friendship at that modern Gomorrah, as did also the other Cockswain Barrett. We mention the circumstance for the, purpose of bringing under the notice of Sir Richard Bourke, the extremely perilous na ture of their employment, and the insignificant remuneration received by them for their services. Norfolk Island is well known to be what a sailor calls " iron bound," being completely surrounded by reefs of rocks; in front of the settlement on the S.W. side is the only channel through the reef by which a boat can enter; through this chan nel have these poor fellows to convey all the stores for the use of the settlement, over one df the most dangerous bars that can well be imagined (we speak feelingly from our unfortunate ac, quaintance with it), and that for the paltry sum of...

TO .COR.R.ESPONDENTS. We forgot last week to acknowledge the receipt of the letter "of A Colonist. It is an attempt to cry up Major .'ul itvan's proposed Company, which we , have already shewn to be an impracticable undertaking. Had the letter contained anything like an answer to our ob-. jections to Alajor S'.'s proposals, we should have pub lished it : but as it contains 'nothing of the dind, we must allow' it to remain in statu quo. H,e undeistund there is to be a meeting of the Provisional Committee of the Land Company this week. The ar rangements , they may agree . upon 'will decide as to whether it will be necessary to .publish E. E.'s letter. At present we have no room for it.

In their high and palmy state the Romans had as many colonies or provinces as ever Great Britain has had yet; and.,these colonies'or pro vinces had all 'sorts of constitutions, just like those of-our own great empire; some of them being,subject to the Senate or Parliament, and others, like our King's colonies, being governed immediately by the Emperor. The Governors of these colonies' had consequently all sorts of rank and title, from the proconsul of Asia, who governed with almost kingly power, and kept as brilliant a court as any modern European sove reign, to the petty governor o...

If there be one principle in the constitution of the country less disputable than another, it is that all legitimate power emanates from the people. This is a fundamental principle, and an awkwar:d basis it. is for the gilded and-lgingerbread superstructure of our present here ditary peerage. The progress of events must inevi tably lead to a remodelling of tlhe Upper House or a. revolution, that may, pe. h.ips, extinguizh that House for ever. 1lMinisters may direct, but they cannot re sist the ihovements of an almost undivided people.
