Select Poetry. A COMMON CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836
* elect p'I~oetrt, A COMMON CHARACTER. BY JANE TAYLOR. There was a youth,--but woe is me! I quite forget his name, and he Without some label round his neck, Is like one pea among a peck. To life he started--thanksto fate, In contact with a good estate. Provided thus, and quite at ease, He takes for'granted all he sees; Ne'er sends a thought, nor lifts an eye, To ask what'am 1'! where'? and why All that is no affair of his, Somehow he came, and there he is !' Without such prosing, stupid stuff, Alive and well, and that's enough. Yet think not that he comes below The modern average ratio, Thecurrent coin of fashion's mint The common, ball-room going stint. Of trifling cost his stock in trade is, Whose business is to please the ladies; Or who to honours may aspire, Of a town beau or country squire. The cant of fashion and of vice, To learn,'slight effort will suffice. And he was furriished with that knowledge, Even bejore he went to College. Nature and art might vainly strive, To keep ...

THE AUSTRALIAN'S LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836
THE AUSTRALIAN'S' LIBEL CASE. ON Saturday last the Solicitor-General and Mr. J Therry appeared before the three Judges in banco, to show cause why the rule nmsi' for. a crimininal information which ihad been granted against Mr. John Richard Hardy, Editor of The Australian, on a former day, should not be made absolute. The Solicitor-General, in a poiw;erful speech, of some length, opposed the Rule. It would be necessary, the learned gen tleman said, to put the Court in possession of the circumstance which had led to the publica tion of the article alleged to be libellous. Some time since His Excellency the Governor, in the exercise of his prerogative, had thought proper to issue a new Commission of the Peace in which the liames -of several gentlemen who had previ ously been Magistrates had been omitted. Mr. Lamb and Mr. Bingle the other gentleman al luded to in this article, were of this number. These gentlemen had thought proper to address letters to the Colonial Secretary demanding...

THE GAZETTE'S LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836
THE GAZETTE'S LIBEL CASE. THE case of: Mudie versus Ann Howe, the pro prietress of The Sydney Gazette, was tried at the Supreme Court on Tuesday last, before His Ionour Judge Burton and two assessors. The Solicitor-General and Mr. Foster were counsel for the plaintiff,, and Messrs. Therry and Win deyer for the defendant. The articles complained of as libellous, were part of a series of articles which, our readers will remember were published in that journal at the time when it was edited from the felons' jail by Watt. The first of these articles was headed Mudie versus Watt, and &nbsp; after bestowing various epithets on the plaintiff, such as the Castle Forbes bog-trotter and other equally elegant appellations, concluded by asserting that the celebrated Mary Chap man, the paramour of Watt, was actually enciente, and about to produce an heir to the bannered halls of Castle Forbes. Another ar ticle complained of, asserted that Mary had brought forth a little Major, who was bo...

Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836
Origiual Covvesottn eie. -.*"S44 - TO THE EDITOR OF THI"COLONIST: Sir,--" A rogue," says ColeridC~t "'is a round .a-bout fool; a.fool in circumbendibus;" and to many a .mind in New South Wales experience has rendered' this truth too obvious. But the same truth is as applicable to thb profligate as the rogue; in him the sources of real pleasure are dried up, and upon him the sluices of misery are opened. iIis efforts to obtain pleasure show how nmuch he is tantalised, his vain attempts to show hihiself make it evident that goblins pursue him.'' Increasing profligacy is increasing woe, and thus a profligate nature must be a. mi serable one. Britain so far as she is vicious is unhappy; :ind crowded cities, containing more of ;,'ilt, enmebrace also a greater amount of suffer ing. Look' at Paris, with her licensed gaming tables and her public stews; gaiety and anguish, revelry and remorse, are the recurrings noonday and midnight, of that splendid but most wretched city. In the year 18$4,...
