The Six Acts—Mr. Hume's Motion. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 November 1827
The Six Acts-Mr. Hume's motion. GLOBE-if we may judge the principles of a system of measures by the ends towards which they tended, the principles of the Six Acts were the most attrocious thet were ever proposed in a free state. In order to make people more easily deceived by any pretences of the government, or. less aware of the tendency of its acts, that kind of printed discussioni which was most likely to reach them was prohibited; in order to de prive the people of the encouragement and sense of power which is derived from union, and also of the benefit of oral discussion, they were prevented from meeting; in order (if even-with these precautions they were not deceived or timid) to make them helpless against the mercenary or any other authorized force, they were prevented from exercising themselves in arms. The laws differed in degree very widely, but yet only in degree, from the worst expedients which a despotism resorts to for its protection. It is to be ad mitted, however, th...

ENGLISH POLITICS. CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 November 1827
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr baring rose to present to present an important Petition which had been signed, he might say, by the unanimous inhabitancy of the Cape of Good Hope. It had no or- dinaryy claims to the attention of the House, as that Colony was placed in a singular predicament as com- pared with all the other Colonies formed by this country for the purpose of agricultutral and general cuitivation. Mr. BARING, in moving that the Petition should lie on the Table, observed, that unless he had been greatly misinformed, there were not a half a dozen persons at &nbsp; the Cape of Good Hope, with the exception of those actually connected with the Government, who were not exceedingly dissatisfied with the late Government of the Colony. It was said also, that the only result of the examination which had taken place there, was an increase of places, and an increase of salaries. In a Colony having a Governor who could levy taxes and make or repeal laws;...
THE MONITOR. THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 15, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 November 1827
T1'HE MONITOR. THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 15, 1827. In our last number we gave the proceedings of a subscription dinner at Cummings's, given by the mem bers of the Turf Club "in commemoration of Sir Thomas Brisbane." The Stewards consisted of the Sheriff, two Merchants, and one of our leading Bar risters (who is also a native of the Colony and a. Irge Lanid-holder.) The Company therefore may be said to be a tolerable representation of publie feeling in matters'of politics. WHiLi we consider Sir Thomas Brisbane, as a Gen tleman, and in his intentions as a Governor, deserving of every praise, still we think that it was only in the last six months of his administration in his capacity of Governor that he fully merited the special encomiums bestowed upon him by the patriotic Chairman. Sir Thoakas was a man 'of science and a Soldier. Po litica he did not understand any farther, than that he possessed that general idea of them which belongs in the present day to -all men of rank and educa...
SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 November 1827
SYDNEY MARKETS. Tuin Market has now become little else than an asecmblage of Stalls, for the purpose of selling, not wheat, maize, or other .agriculture produce-but for retailing English, and India wares. The little that was in market with the exception of wheat, was for the greater part- in the hands of forestallers, those pests to fair dealing, who prey upon the vitals of the community, aid eat up the profits which should be fairly divided between the grower and consumer.

King's Wharf, November 13, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 November 1827
King's Wharf, Novenmber 11, 1827. MR. MONITOR, SIR. I BEG to state to you the great inconvenience the shipping and coasting interests are put to by the regulations of the new Customs' house. I could men tion numberless instances. The officers are eternially at war with the peojl connected with the Port. And as for the coasting trade, which ought to be fostered and cherished, as the true cradle of Australian prosperity as you justly observe, it meets with all possible sort of obstruction. Last Saturday, the mate of a coasting vessel waited seven hours at the Customs Office for a permit to put on board a bag of sugar and a chest of tea, and after all could not get it, such are the mysteries of the of ce, and such the mode of business adopted there. Sunday intervened. Of course tno business done. On Monday a permit could not be obtained till the office was opened. I hus more than two days were con .sumed, in getting a permit to put on board a little coasting vessel, a bag of sugar and ...

LONDON NEWSPAPER CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 November 1827
LONDON NEWSPAPER CHAT. VAUXJALL GARDENS.-The season of' this charming place of public resort, which the strains of a Billing ton, a Storace, a Crouch, and a Bland have celebrated, commenced last Monday night. The gardens and orchestra have undergone various alterations since they closed last year, and extensive additions are now in progress. The principal novelty this season, is the in trodaction of a Vaudeville, performed in the saloon, erec ted last year for the concert, but which is now confined to the open orchestra. The one we are I resented with, is from the pen of Mr. Moncrieff, and called Actors al Fresco ; or, 7 he Play in the Pleasure Grounds-we hope his next production will" be something better. A Mr. S. Beunett and a Mr. Woulds made their debuts on this occasion ; the former of these gentlemen has con siderable talent ; the latter, we understand, is a great favourite at Bath, but seems to be out of his element here. Miss Graddon, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam, and Mr. Horn, h...

POLICE, Monday - Patrick Cochrane was brought &nbsp; before his Worship, charged with drunkenness on the &nbsp; Sabbath. Cochrane is a prisoner of the Crown, and was therefore sentenced to 14 days perpetual ascension on the receding steps of a certain machine. The same prisoner was then charged with having resisted the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; constables while putting him into the lock-house, &nbsp; thereby creating a noise and disturbing the Court. The Magistrate asked the Chief Constable "If the Court &nbsp; &nbsp; had been disturbed?". Mr. Jilks answered in the affirmative - three months to an Iron Gang, to commence from the expiration of his sentence on the tread-mill. William Williams, assigned servant to the Rev.Richard Hill, was accused by his master with being drunk and riotous on the preceding evening.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 19 November 1827
To THE EDITOR OF THEE MONITOR. SIn, I ea a Subscriber to your Journal since the commencement of its publication, because 1 admired your priuciples on political grounds only; but the odious system of theology you have sometimes pursued, savours too much of party feeling, and displays a want of can dour, sense, and sound judgment, for it evidently.ap pears that you have devoted your columns to the de fence of Popish errors, superstitions, and to the basest of purposes, not fearful of the consequences. IT is surprising, Sir, how you can sacrifice the doc trines of your sacred religion, to the purpose of adding to your list a few paltry and disaffected Subseribers, the majority of whom" are by no means your supporters, and to put forth to the world such a mass of misrepre sentation respecting the gunpowder plot, as you have done in yourlast. Your remarks about crackers, squibs, and vagrant boys, are only the indications of a heart and mind tinctured with party feeling, and devoted to th...

SIR, So much have we, one and all, Catholics and4 Protestants of every denomination, been pleased with. your equitable advocacy of every man's rights, civil and religious, that I cannot help making this formal approval of your conduct on behalf of the Settlers of this district. A few of the old school have ventured to blame you for. upholding the interests of the Catholic portion of your fellow subjects, as well as those'of the Protestant; but. go on, nor ever mind their censures, which are only the writhings of a broken-backed serpent. TELL us in yonr next, how we are to dispose of our wheat, in order to be able to support our families, upon acres yielding 5 bushels of grain! !! Some of our land has not yielded so much, and some, nothing but straw, which I have burned to save expense of reaping. Your's, &c. FARMERt.

SOxr 'Thrsdiiy an iniportant discussion came on, which "seairofily affects the Navy, and in the course of it, Sir Geoge ibockburn:letrayed that there exists a design to aidtharize the sale'of Naval Commissions, upon a prin ciple similar " to that which has long rendered our army "the'reproachbof other countries. We are always sorry when the Memibers of the Royal Family are placed at the head of public departments; their previous educa tion_ disqualifies them for business, whilst it imparts Sany notions scarcely dative to our soil We trust that hlie Duke of Clarence will pause ere he introduces into -tlhe Navy a regulation calculated to prostitute it to the Aristocracy and the wealthy. Sir George Cokburn was, we are informed, raised from before the mast, and it ¶gteitly redounds'to his honour. Should the new regu lation be introduced we fancy Sir George will be almost the last instance of merit meeting with its due reward. But we expect to find in a man of Sir George's origin, all th...
