[Tuesday, March 22.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The following evidence was then heard for the defence:- &nbsp; Archibald M'Leod, Esquire, I have lived in this and the sister colony about fifteen years, both as a settler and a government officer. I have experienced many of the difficuties attending the formation of a settlement in the interior. I think itwould be as easy to settle a family for instructing the Aborigines as for any other purpose; in either case, a house would be required, and a few acres of cleared land. The ex- pense attentant on a settlement depends on many things ; but I have known many respectable families who have settled in the interior for a less sum than 500l. These families had no salary afterwards; a salary of 150l. yearly would make a great difference. Cross-examined, I know but little of the expen- diture necessary for a Missionary. If a settler wants to attach the blacks to his place, he must bribe them with tobacc...

*00444, OF A CONTENTED MIND. ` , BY LORD'VAUX. WHEN all is done and said, In th' end thus shall you find, Ie most of all doth bathe in bliss, S That hatli a-quiet mind : And, clear from worldly cares, To deem can be content . .. The sweetest time in all his life, I n thinking to be spent...;: The. body subject is To. fickle Fortune's power, And to a million of mishaps Is- caiual every hour: And.death. in time does change . . It to a clod'of clay; When as the mind, which is divine, Runs never to decay.' Companion none is like . Unto the mind alone.; For .many have been harm'd by speech;. , fe Through thinking, few or none. Fear oftentimes restraineth words, But makes not thought. to cease, And he speaks best that-hath the skill, . When for to hold his peace. Our wealth leaves us at death; Our kinsmen at the grave; But virtues of: the mind unto The heaveis with'us we have. Wherefore, for viz tue's sake I can be 'well content, The sweetest time ?of all my life, To deem in thinking spen...
