English Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836

tlSnglI! rxtvagt0. PaooaEsS OF FREE PRINCIPLES IN EUROPE.-In 1832. Alexander H. Everett, of Massachusetts, then our: Minister at the Court of Spain, published a work entitled " Europe, or a general survey of the principal powers, with conjectures on their future prospects.' In this work, says The Alexandria Ga 'zette, it was zealously maintained, ;and the opinion fortified by an elaborate train of reasoning upon as. certaiied' facts and the obvious tendency of iffairs, that the progress of. civilization, and the diffusion of liberal political principles which results from it, would naturally bring about the substitution of the liberal for. arbitrary forms of governmernt in a short time,? and that violent attempts to prevent the change would only render it more dangerous. Since, then, all this has been abundantly verified in'the history of the European governments. Changes in favour of liberal principles .have taken place in France, Eng land, Portugal, and Spain-particularly in the l...

NEWSPAPERS. [rnos AN Insn01 PBrnLIzATION.) [coNCLUDED.] [Wu have said already that the British' natioai,i at. :he present period, under an almost complete sub;: jection to the press. 'The most cursory observer must have noticed this. We know whole districts of country where the inhabitants take their tone on. every subject from the journal that happens to be in circulation amongst themselves. , Let us see whether the' press is entitled to this ascendancy. The editors of our journals, one would imagine. must be a very thoughtfl and reflec ive class of individuals.. Plain people, we suppose, conceive of them as unusually' grave and sagaciQus personages, sitting in solemn, deliberation, and at tines in learned conclave of their order, upon all those subjects of political im-~ portance that interest and engross the state. 'Else: why, it . may be asked, do they give forth their senti?l, ments with such parade, assuming all the airs of recognised dictatorship Could we lift the screekn' th...

FEMALE EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836

FEMALE EMIGRATION.         'FROM THE TRUE COLONIST.] WE noticed last week; under the head of Shipping Intelligence, the arrival of the Boadicea with another freight of the unfortunate victims of the Emigration Committee. This, from all we can learn, is the worst cargo for the colony that Mr. Marshall ever sent out. Of the 260, there are 160 below sixteen years of age ; and, dreadful to relate, many of them were so young so utterly helpless and useless in this colony, that the: Government have found it necessary to send some forty or fifty of them to the Orphan School as a present asylum ; the remainder were sent to a house at the upper end of Campbell Street, hired for the purpose by the Government. So much has been already said by all the press of the colony, against the nefarious system, that any thing that we could now write would only be a repetition of what has been already said by ourselves and by each of our contemporaries, ...

TEGG'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836

TEGG'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE. On Tuesday last, the first number of this unas- suming colonial periodical issued from the press, at the stnall price of one shilling. After what we have already said of other recently projected Colonial Monthlies, it would be out of character to say much of this ; and we shall therefore leave it to speak for itself, which it will of course Sbe able to do a little more distinctly in its second or third number than it can be supposed likely to do in its first. It strikes us, however, that there is rather too little of it of a direct colonial hearing, and too much of what the printers call extructs. For a plain, business sort of people, like the people of this colony, we also think there is rather too much poetry in Mr. Tegg's Monthly ; and we would advise his Editor in future to devote a portion of his space to a chronicle of events for the month. The Maga- zine is printed at our press. It therefore affords a job for our office, which, in the event of its suc...

AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 March 1836

AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SOCIETY. THE first anniversary meeting of this Society was held in the Pulteney Hotel, on the evening of Monday, the 29th ult., Mr. George Washing ton Walker, of the Society of Friends, in the chair. The Report of the Society, which was   read by the Rev. W. Jarrett one of the secre-   taries, was highly gratifying in one particular,   although the very reverse in another; the state   of the schools of the Society having exceeded   the expectations of its founders, as much as that of its funds had fallen.short of them. After   noticing the difficulties and opposition with which the Society had had to struggle at its   outset, the Report stated that a Boys' School had been established on the 1st of May last, in a   building hired for the purppse in Pitt-street, under the superintendence of Mr. Peter Robert son, a free emigrant from Scotland, who had been accustome...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

TO COZ.RESPONDENTS. Pater-familias must allow us to take our own time and our own way to run down any suspicious-looking craft that may show itself in the Australian Seas. Besides, we have nobler game tofly at than he wots of; and we have no idea of singling out for punishment an emancipist offender, when there is a free emigrant next door to him who has set him the example. Iota must be content to remain iota subscriptumfor another week, for we cannot bring him aboveboard in our pre sent number. We must be plain enough with him, how ever, to inform him that his verses seem to us to want both point and a specific object. A Hantcrian Whig must be reminded that we do not keep open house for the Patriotic Association. His paper, we doubt not, would be acceptable enough to those journals that have taken that body under their wing. The Acrostic in honour of a leading colonial patriot may be well meant, as we presume it is; but it is un fortunately not intelligible. As to the usages of pa...

My worthy obliging friend, Mr. Carruthers, attended me. The building, called a church, is without the town, and placed in a hollow, so as to be out'of sight; it is, in 'the fullest senseu ". Without the Gate." It is a poor log-house, built by the hands:of the negroes, and so placed as to shew'that they must worship by stealth. - It is perhaps, twenty by twenty: five, with boarding and, rails breastlhigh, run round their sides, so as to form galleries. :'To this is added a' beam to take the overplus, when the fine weather should admit of larger numbers. There were three small openings besides the door and the chink in the building to admit 'light and air. -'The 'place was quite full; the women and mnený were arranged on opposite sides; and although on a'cold or rainy day t...

Select. IJ~oertpr~ a: LINES BY CO.WPER. WHEN Cook-lamented, and with tears as just As ever mingled with heroic dust, Steer'd Britain's oak into a world unknown, And in hip country's glory sought his own. Where'er he found a man, to nature true, The rights of man were sacred in his'view ; He soothed with gifts, and greeted' with'a smile, The simiiple native-of the new found isle; He spurn'd the wretch; that'slighted or withstood. The tender argument-of kindred blood', Nor would endure, that any should'control His freeborn brethren of the southern pole." But though .some nobler minds a law respect, , That none shall with impunity neglect, In baser souls'unnumber'd evils meet, . To thwart its influence, and its ends defeat.. While Cook is loved for savage lives he saved,: See Cortez odious for:a world enslaved ! .
