' It is a perilous thing- to try experiments on tho farmer,' said Burlcc, ivho was well qualified to form a just opinion of their interests ; and we opine that the justness of tins opinion will be established by proofs in this Colony if the perilous experiment of creating a rent out of waste lands be adhered to. If it be at any time necessary to listen to the reasonings and re presentations of the people, or of ? any class of the people, surely the fitting- occasion presents i.tself now. Surely it is wisdom to listen to the urgent -appeal of the stock and sheep-holders of the Colony, who will become serious sufferers by an impolitic, even if it prove a practicable, demand. Putting out of sight the idiots of the Colony— those who either possess not reasoning faculties, or whose reasoning faculties are clouded with selfishness, there is not a single being who cannot clearly see the matchless folly of extorting a rent 'in such a society as tliis'is, from thelcasual and. temporary occup...

THE RECRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 30 September 1826

THE RECRUIT. About three months previous to the day of embarkation, a batch of recruits had joined the regiment from Scotland Among them was a remarkably fine young Highlander, a native, if I recollect right of Balquidder, called Duncan Stewart. Duncan was in all respects a good soldier; he was clean, sober, orderly, and well beloved; but he seemed to be of a singularly melancholy temper; never mixing   in the sports and amusements of his comrades, nor even ,speaking except when he was obliged to speak. It so hap-   pened that the pay-serjeant of Duncan's company was likewise a highlander ; and Highlanders, being of all de-   scriptions, of persons the most national, he very soon began to interest himself about the fate of the young recruit. At first Duncan shrunk back even from his advances, but it is not natural for the human heart, especially during the season of youth, to continue long indifferent to acts of kindness ; so Duncan gradually p...

GOVERNMENT NOTICES.       Colonial Secretary's Office, Sept. 29, 1826. HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR   cannot permit the events of last Saturday night,     at Burwood, the residence of John Dalhunty Esq., R. N. to pass without expressing his admiration of the spirited conduct of that gentleman and his family, which has led to the apprehen- sion of the ruffians who made a sanguinary attack on their per- sons. The result would be highly important, if only in proving how much may be effected by a cool and determined resistance, against men of even the most desperate characters ; while at the same time it holds out an example which, under similar circum- stances, may be useful in exciting others.     His Excellency avails himself of this opportunity of thanking Captain Rossi, for his unwearied assiduity in the superintendence and conduct of the police of Sydney.

MEDITATIONS IN SYDNEY CHURCH-YARD.

"And here ye are - and here am I, far - very far - I wot,   From that loved land we always love, both Irishman and Scot ; And Englishman, and Welchman too, that land we ne'er shall see, That lies full sixteen thousand miles, far off amid the sea. And you, ye dead, ye had your cares, but now ye all are free ; They press my so...
