The facts that particularly required explanation were. that it was sworn that theplatntfl'had stated. that he did not give Instructions to commence the action ; and that the note on which the action was rouglht, was only -?9 Ips 60; anti that the interest for five weeks, which was only 2s ad., was added to bring it within the jurisdiction of the Court.

Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 8 March 1839
Theatre. The following is extracted from Thursday's Aus tralian. " We have forsome time past declinedtaklng any formal review of theatrical proceedings, for the same reason as men are sometimes silent in society, viz. because we haeve had nothing good to say. With one or two exceptions we have had such a series of ttivialities (to say the best) that we had no desire to extend the remembrance of them. Whether the pieces lately produced were the sole selection of the manager, or at all events referred to his judgment and flnat decision, is a matter wholly indifferentto us and to the public-the selections have been most injudicious. There is a'manifest disposition in the Colony to encourage dramatic representations; an impetus ton has beengiven tothenm in the recent patronace of their Excellencies. We have often said, and we nowrepeat it. that in the adolescent condition of the colony, it is im peratlve onthoseto whom the trust is confided, to use their best efforts to infuse, as far a...

Smuggling.—Revenue in danger. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 8 March 1839
Slnuggling.-Revenue in danger. A publican named Harris being examined, in a case of smuggling, at the Pollce Office, as to the market price of rum, acknowledged that he could, upon any day of any week. go on board ship and purchase rum at gs a gallon. which could not be obtained at less than 14s out of hbond. when properly passed through the custom-house books. and the duties paid How do you know that? asked Mr. lichcls. who was employed for the defence. The answer was "because I have done it myself, and could do t every day in defiance of any of the Custom House Officers." (A pleasant laugh among the publicans, of whom the as. sembled auditors were chiefly comoosed.) Mr. Harris. however, was rewarded for his candour by an intimation from one of the gentlemen of the Customs' present, that his License ahould be seriously afected by the confession. or it would not be his fault. We have put this case forward as a leading article, because if the observations of the publican be correct, ...
Sir Richard Bourke. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 8 March 1839
Sir Richard Bourke. Under the head of ' Secondary Punishments," a writer in thie Herald under the signature of a '" SaTLERLa,"haB published two letters, and promises a third. We did not read his first letter, but we have read the second. It is plausibly written, and the malignlity of the writer towards Sir lRichard Ilourke, is curbed; but here and there it steals out in spite of the secret [resolves to the contrary of the writer. The letter is fuloil of plausible false hoods and misrepresenltations, for the reverse generally speakinig, thouth not on some points, of what the author alleges, is the truth. Darling, who never formed any system of consict disci pline it all, nor made any laws respecting it, is represented as a great reformer and benefactor in this respect. And Mr Hely, whose farm was a `perfect Convict workshop,, and who actually kept a workshop in the Barracks, Ityde Park, where all his furniture used to be made, and who gave the pick of the convictS to hiisfsiends, is ...

Bourke's Avenue. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 8 March 1839
Bourke's Avenue. Whoever looks at the trees in Hyde Park, and considers the three disadvantages under which they labour; will be surprised at their comparatively healthy appearance. The first impediment to their 'progress is the drought. The second is, their &nbsp; being trained to carry their foliage on a single stem. The third is, their exposed situation. Tbis last is irremedial. &nbsp; : The second disadvantage alone calls our attention. No trees in this Colony should be trained to carry their foliage on a single stem 'except the pines and poplars.. All trees in all situations, but &nbsp; imperatively inexposed situations like that of Hyde &nbsp; Park should in this dry country be cut down on planting, within two feet of the ground, and caused to throw out half a dozen branches. Four, or at the least three of these, sbould be retained as stems, and encouraged to spread out. They will &nbsp; then protect each other, and the tree will form a ...
