TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 7 April 1836
TO THE EDITOR: OF THE COLONIST. SIt,-Shortly after my arrival in the colony, in cone quence of being introduced to the family of Mr. Caleb Wilson, merchant, George Street; I became 'ac quainted with John Thomas Wilson, at that time a clerk .in the employment of Messrs. C. and F.,Wil son,; and in no way connected with i the family, but merely employed as a clerki in the establishment. As my sisters were in the habit of visiting the family of Mr. Wilson, an intimacy, in course of time took place between John' Thomas Wilson, and one of my sisters, viz. Mrs. Cavill ; the object of my thus public appeal, ,is to clear my character from certain slan derous'and false imputations which I do not deserve, as' I hope to show you in the course of this narra tive. The correspondence between my sister and Wilson had not been carried on for more than two or n, three mron?hs, when being:warned.by'.a 'friend, of,the licentious habits of \Vilson,, and of a report in general circulation in Sydney, of h...

[FROM REED AND MATTIIESON 'S VISIT TO THE AMERICAN CInURCIIES.] THE year past has been, to the churches within' our bounds, emphatically a year of the Most High. 'In no year, since the settlement of? oui country, have ) we witnessed so many and such signal triumphs of the Redeemer's cause; or recorded so large an acces;. sion to the number of his professed followers, as the. year which we are now to review. All our churches;; which have enjoyed the stated means of grace, have: been visited with revivals during the past year. The first' special indication of a work of grace ap?; peared in Geneva, early in the month of June, 1830;. and the first subjects of it were members of the': Female Seminary. At the close of the first week'; after the attention became general, eight or ten were. rejoicing in hope, and an' unusual seriousness 'per vaded the 'minds of all. A weekly meeting was::...

THE Solicitor-General rose and' said, :el was in structed on. the part of 'the defendant .in this case' to move, that the trial should be postponed, upon the ground that two material witnesses were iot in attendance.

VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 7 April 1836
VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. THE following account of the present state of the miserable remnant of the Aborigines of Van Dieman's Land, recently collected by that emi- nently meritorious person, Mr. Robinson, and now located by the Van Dieman's Land Execu- tive on Flinders' or Great Island, in Bass' Straits, is from the Hobart Town Courier of the 25th ult. Dr. Ross is apt to give a little of the couleur de rose to his pictures, but we hope and trust we shall find that in this instance he has drawn from the life. The passage is introduced and followed up by one of the wildest of the Doctor's specula- tions, that of employing the natives on Flinders Island for the civilization of the Aborigines in the neighbourhood of Port Phillip. Why, would it not be incomparably better to spare us Mr. Robinson himself, if he would undertake the ex- periment for a year or two? The Aborigines of Van Dieman's Land, of whom it is quite distress- ing to think that the whole nation is reduced to 118 souls, are a ...
MISSIONARY WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 7 April 1836
-MISSIONARY WOOL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SINCE the publication of our last number, we have ascertained from the very best authority, that Mr. Jame Cox, of Maitland, has very re- cently had specimens of wool in his possession from the Missionary Threlkeld's sheep, as well for the sale of the spare rams as for that of the fleece; and we mention the circumstance, not only to rebut the assertion of the learned Solicitor General, that his cliernt, in the recent libel case, was a poor man, but to remind the Reverend Flockmaster himself, that as he is likely to do somewhat better in the world as a sheepholder than mere missionaries generally do, it will be his bounden duty, as soon as he has the means, to repay to the London Missionary Society, the whole amount of the enormous expenditure he in- curred on account of that society, as a Missionary to the Aborigines, over and above the sum of 5001 for the first year, and 150l. for each of the five following years, during...
