Ta Ti?AT'raL.-On MIonday. Olway's tragedy of Veriice Preserved," was played. We dislike this play in all respects. It 1. coarse, not clear in Its mnnral, and 3aftler (one of the heroes) is a poor weak creature. Belvidere alsis'ntoo whining for a woman of superior mind an dignity ; Pierre keeps horrid company, and enters into a conspiracy whose bloody means are not justified by the end'; and alto. gether this play is more French thanEnglishl, for the French delight in unnatural and improbable things. On the stage. nothling natural pleases the French. It must he all of the marvel and horrid. We at tended therefore not to see the pla,. but to see a nameless novice of the IBuskin, who was to perform Pierre.

As a player he appears equal'to Knowles, which is saying a good deal. He treads the stage in a manly and gracef...

Sailors' Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 6 March 1839
Sailors' Home We are happy to hear, that the subject of a Sydney "Sailor's Home" which has been established &nbsp; in India with such great success, and with such popular applause, is to be taken up at the next an- niversary meeting of our Temperance Society, which takes place next month. The ship-owners of the colony, and all merchants, shipwrights, shop-keepers, and others, owning or having to do with ships and sailors, we trust will either attend in person, or commission their friends to attend and subscribe in their names for the es- tablishment of a Sailors' home; an institution which is as admirable, as it is ingenious, looking at the difficulty which attends doing good to so singular a class of men as that to which the "poor duped Jack Tar" belongs. The intention is, to establish a lodging-house for all sailors, to be kept by a repectable couple, at which no ardent spirits shall be sold, but in lieu tea and coffee. Wine and malt liquor, it is proposed, shall be furnis...

As far as the report itself goes, it is the most correct of any that has been pu$ilished,'but as the whole of the facts did not come out in evidence,!I trust you will insert the following statement. .At'the time the note was given,! thought the good. were purchased by Hamilton for himself, but I have since ascertained that Grove had and still has them ; and that they were purchased for him by Hamilton. for some reason best known to themselves.
