TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

TO THE EDZTOR O '.T E COT.ONEST. SIR-It is a matter of surprise and regret that in this now becoming extensive colony, where the number of medical men is so considerable, no asso ciation should ere this, have been formed, for the pur pose of disseminating professional knowledge, and of promoting that friendly intercourse, which should ever distinguish members of an honourable and liberal profes.ion; to attain which most desirable object 'I iould propose that a Society, to be denominated the ' Australian Medical and Surgical Association,' shbuld be established, and that the object of such Association should be for the following purposes, viz : "1. To collect. and publish useful medical and str gical information,' whether speculative or .practical, through original essays, or reports of cases occurring in hospitals, infirmaries, or private practice.? 2. .To cltivate those important branches of medical science, whicli are comprised under medicale topo 3, To inyestigate the natfire of '...

THE STREETS OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

THE STREETS OF.SYDNEY. THE improvements recently.effected, and still in progress, in some of the streets of Sydney, reflect great: credit on, ;the.. Town :Surveyor, and will doubtless add greatly to the comfort of. the inha bitants. We were of.opinion that little or nothing of the kind was required in Macquarie Street, on which;a'gang has been at, work for some time past; but the.greatly, improved appearance of the street nbw has induced us to form a different conclusion. Indeed, whenever an alteration in the level of any part of astreet is necessary, the soonerthe improve ment is effected the better; for the value of a house or other building may be verymuch affected by its being either.considerably above or considerably below the generalilevel. By the way, how comes it that the street in front of the Australian College Buildings has been neglected ' so long by 'the Government ? It cannot be because it is private property, as we have. been told, when gently re monstrating on the su...

CASE FOR THE LAND COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

. CASE FOR THE LAND CO"MPANY. "' In- the month of January, 1835, two 'brothers, respectable free emigrants, arrived in the colony; from England-the onerecently married iand the other having a wife and nine children;, with the view of settling in the interior. Shortly after their arrival, they put sup about 1000 acres of land on the 'borders of the counties of Argyle and Murray; but on attending on. the day ad vertised for the sale, they were mortified enough at being told that the land was not measured, andt could not be sold. 'After remaining at very great expense in the town of Sydney, for months thereafter, one of them requested to be allowed to :purchase a hundred acres of the land they had formerly applied for conjointly, to form .a home stead, and to erect a dwelling-house'and a ware= house for the sale of goods. This requiest was acceded to, and in the-mean time the two fami lies,' having expe nded a considerable portion of their capital in Sydney,, and 'thereby, iendered the...

Domestic Intelligence. THE COLONIAL ARTILLERY CORPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

. tinemtitc ntrtel gnce. THE COLONIAL ARTILLERY CORPS. 'vHERE are people in this colony who are posi-. tively so little acquainted with its past history and present condition, as never to have heard of the New South Wales Artillery Corps. The British Colonial system, it is well known, recog nises the existence of certain military bodies, distinct from the regular standing army of Great Britain, and confined to particular territories be yond seas. There is, for instance, the native Indian army, the Cape Corps, the West African Regiments, the West India ditto, and the late 102nd Regiment, or New South Wales Corps. Distinct from all these, however, and differently constituted also from them all, is the New South Wales Artillery Corps, of whose existence we refer our readers for a satisfactory proof to. the following extract from Mr. Wentworth's Statistical Account of the British Settlements in Australasia : The instant a young woman arrives at the age of mnaturity, and often, indeed, l...

Colonial Politics. THE IRISH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

.THE IRISH CHURCH. Tui grand question, the question of questions in the mother-country, is,the Irish Church question --the question relative to the presentl anomalous ecclesiastical state of Ireland. From the reign of EILZABETK till within the last few months, it has beeni the professed object of the British Government to support the :Protestant religion, and to maintain. Protestant ascendancy,- in that unhappy country;, but so ill adapted' have been :the means which the Government have adopted for accomplishing that' great object, that for the last hundred years and ,upwards, Pro testantism has been declining in .Ireland, ,and Popery, waxing strohger :and - stronger; inso inuch that, like the lean ill-favoured cattle in PHAIOAH'S dream,., the Roman Catholics of Ire land seem ready to swallow up: the: fat and well favoured cattle of the Irish Protestant Hierarchy; and, to egntinue the allusion, the 'probability is, that, if allowed to finish their repast, they will' just continue as...

Original Correspondence. IMMIGRATION AND LAND COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 March 1836

49t'igiita 4Troteý0 lt'ýPete. IMMIGRATION AND LAND COMPANY, TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sm,--Owing to a yant of clearness in the published resluitions, and to the mistakes of those who have apoken and written, on the subject, the real and imi mediate objects of the proposed Company were not uintil very recently at .all evident. At first. it was concluded that the object was to bring out Emigrants, and to obtain from the Government land instead of money as the bounty thereon. However, it now appears that the object of the proposed Company is to obtain the land first, and to bring out the Emi grants afterwards; now, when you couple this, with the desire to select such portions as they please, both within and without the location limits, it must be evident that no Government would listen to the pro posals of such a Company. It may be said, that a Company could act independently of the Govern X-ent-that they would come into the market and purchase land as well 's an jndividual-and so...

DR. LHIOTSKY. WE'- beg. to acknowledge. the receipt of Doctor Lhotsky's Jane and Mary,. or: the` Story of the Tlen Sovereigns,' a narrative' founde'd on colonial facts.'" It is the first nuiiber of a series of what he: calls ''"Austialian Tracts, for the dissemina tion- of moral, domestic'` and patriotic feelings.' The idea: is?doubtless good, but we questioni Dr. Lhotsky's fithess for, the office he has thus as sumed, as. a Colonial Reformer, and we appre hend, that in endeavouring to disseminate feelings of. the kind he mentions, he will sometimes" be found-disseminating something very different. In one part of his tract, for instance, he tells us-that his hero, " William, was : a perfctly good and upright young man," a character, .which' we 'ire divinely' informed, in a series of very ancient tracts :published for, tlhe dissemination of moral, domeitic, and'pa?riotic `feelings, as w::ell''as of feelings' of a still? igher kind, :does not exist in this present evil world.
