NEW CIRCULAR WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 25 February 1836
NEW. CIRCULAR WHARF. ,. OF all the improvements in actual operation or even in contemplation in. this metropolis,, there is none more important to the interests of the commtniity than that of tuilding'a circular wharf at the head of Sydney Coye ; that wretched projection y'clept the King's W4arfJ is the only public place in Sydney -'ihere vessels can dis charge their cargoes, and that has been 'bloc"ed up for two years by the .sunken hull of the Ann Jamison. Really the Government,.who derive so large an income from the duties on i1mports, &c., and have so much money in the Colonial Chest, should devote some small portion of itAto such an undertaking, which must inevitably prove, not only beneficial to trade, and a great convenience to the -public in general, but would also be a source of considerable revenue to the Government, and that in a very, short period of time.- The Cove, for want'of some such building, is fast filling up, and the effluvia arising frorr it *is suffici...

VAN DIEMAN'S LAND CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 25 February 1836
-VAN DIEMAN'S LAND CROPS. IT will be. observed from. the following article which we extract from The True Colonist of the 5tlt instant, that thi crops in Van Dieman's Land are .by no means1,sor deficieit as the public of. New South Wale~ had. been led to believ,. 150;000 bushels' of wheat, which the Van Dieman's Land people calculate on being able to spare us, will, at the rate of .10 bushels per head, be equal to the consumption of 15,000 individuals, or one-fifth of our whole population. Since our last, we have received Sydney papers down to the 23rd of= January, and; we have also con versed with several persons who -have come from Sydney by the last arrivals, ani all concur in stating that there is' a general failure both of the wheat and maize crops, and a scarcity apprehended both of bread corn, and forage.' In addition to this, information had been received at Sydney confirming what we stated several months ago, regarding the crops"in the United States, which are also so far d...

CONTRACTS FOR THE CURRENT QUARTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 25 February 1836
CONTRACTS FOR THIE CURRENT QUARTER. WE. have not ' been able to ascertain who has taken the contract for Private Correspondence for The' Herald during the present quarter, but we have internal evidence in that journal itself sufficient to convince .us of its having been taken exceedingly .low. Indeed if we may judge of the stock from the sample in last Monday's Herald, it must surely have been taken at a very low rate indeed, and by a very low person. Our opinion, as to the whole system of Female Emi gration, is already before the public; but while that opinion remains unaltered, we cannot but do justice to the very humane and praiseworthy feelings that must have a c'uated His Excellency, the Governor, in allottinlg a portion of the build ings attached to Government House for the re ception of the successive cargoes of Female Emigrants' that arrive in the colony, and in appropriating a part of Government House itself' ftr the' meetings of the Committee for their assignmen't and dist...

Colonial Politics. SQUATTING AND CATTLE-STEALING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 25 February 1836
' WtUoloniti UPi ticr. --***- " :'SQUATTING AND CATTLE-STEALING. SO all the 'verbs in Johnson's Dictionary, the one which is most, frequently conjugated, in all its 'possible moods and tenses, in' this colony, is the verb 'To squat ; which signifies to' sit down with a number of sheep or cattle .on Crown. land in 'the interior, either within or. beyond the bound a ary. :To begin with the present tense of.the'.in dicative mood, it is unquestionable :that the phrases "I' squat, Thou squattest, · He squats, We squat, Ye or You'sqitat, They squat," indi cate the 'present' condition and occupation of a large portion of our colonial population. People residing in. Sydney, it is true, never conjugate this. verb in the present. tense,, except in .the persons of their ':shepherds or overseers; but Slie some substantial inhabitant of our good tiFw r begins to use it in the past tense, saying I quatted or did squat, you may be sure he is going to tell you that lie has since retired from the pr...

The Professor was then growing about eighty sorts of wheat in the garden of Mr. Saunders, nurseryman, in Jersey. Their variety, classifi cation, and beauty, struck Col. Le.

The latter told him that for the last twenty4ive years.he 1 ad been employed in studying the properties nd cha racter of wheat, and had 'collected in the Royal Gardeiis,- upwards- of 900 varieties' and sub varieties.

Domestic Intelligence. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 25 February 1836
[CONTINUED.] Mr. William Warby, a native of the colony, and &nbsp; large proprietor of stock on the banks of the Mur- rumbidgee, was placed at the bar of the Supreme Court on Monday last, charged before Judge Dow- ling and a Civil Jury, with receiving, knowing them to be stolen, seventeen calves, the property of Henry or Cornelius O'Brien, Esqs. The offence for which Warby was tried, occurred in December, 1830. The principal evidences for the prosecution were two ap- provers who were concerned in the transaction, and who had given information against the prisoner to save themselves from being placed in jeopardy. The circumstances of the case, which occupied the court during the whole day were shortly these. Mr. O'Brien had at that period a stockman in his employ naned Beaver, who it appeared had been carrying on on a regular system of cattle-stealing in connextion with others. At the time laid in the idictment, Beaver came to the approver Glover and requested him to assist h...
