LADY ESTHER STANHOPE. — Persons who read the pub- lic papers with attention will remember that Lady Esther. Stanhope, an English woman, made herself, either by her beauty or her skill, Chief of a tribe of Arabs, in the De- serts of Syria, over whom she reigned with absolute power. Accounts have lately been received of this ex- traordinary woman, whose family, rich and powerful, have vainly endeavoured to entice her back to Europe. Captains Irby and Mangles were charged to carry her some books and letters, and with this intention repaired from Jaffa, which is in the interior, to the place of her residence, the old monastery Mar Elias Alza, situated a league and a half from Saide. There they heard that this sovereign was gone to Jeba, in the middle of the mountains. The two Englishmen sent her the letters and books, with which they were charged, and at the same time requested permission to pay their respects to her personally; but she replied, that she had laid it down as a law, never...

WE highly applaud our Cotemporary for his manly and English feeling displayed in his comments last week on an incident relating to the Police Court of Parramatta; and we only regret, that he himself was so little able to endure a similar castigation from us, administered him for a sentiment, which he had espoused, and which ap peared to us to merit censure as severe as that he has so laudably bestowed upon the sitting Magistrate at Parramatta. We also think the Proprietor of the Aus tralian entitled to the thanks of the friends of old English law and old English freedom, for being at the expense of reporting the adjudications of the Police and Quarter Sessions at Liverpool and Parramatta respectively, and we hope he will extend his system to Campbell Town, Cawdor, and all the intermediate justice-rooms whenever opportunity permits. We would cheerfully join him in the expense of such extension if required.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 14 July 1826
TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. SIr, I read with much pleasure an advertisement in your paper of yesterday's date, announcing the intended establishment of a public dispensary, for the relief of the free class of the poor inhabitants of Sydney. The philanthropic feelings developed by those medical gentlemen who have subscribed their respec tive and respectable names thereunto, stamp their characters with indelible honour. The purity of their motives is obvious; &nbsp; the sincerity of their promises irrefutable; and no one who has any knowledge of such worthy members of our commu nity, can augur, but that their exertions in the cause of hu manity will be indefatigable. But will any one who has resided one year,-one month in this town, agree with the sentiments expressed in the advertisement alluded to, that many of the above class, " are frequently doomed to linger on the bed of sickness, and perhaps at length fall victims to its painful effects?" What ! and not one of these c...
To the Editor of the MONITOR. HALF-WAY HOUSE, 8 July, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 14 July 1826
To the Editor of the MONITOR. SIR, HALF-WAY HOUSE, 8 July, 1826, I read a very shameful account of a dinner which took place at my Inn, on the Parramatta road, and now, beg to contra- dict it. A subscription-ball and supper, was indeed held at my house on the day mentioned by you. Mr. Chapman certainly was on his return from Parramatta, whither he had been on duty respecting Mr. Ball's robbery, but he was not only not president, but not even a guest. As to the man you call Blind Larry, I know nothing of him; at my tap all ready- money customers are welcome, and if Blind Larry has been one, so much the better. Chapman is an active respectable constable, and as such his being a guest, would have been, in my opinion, no discredit to my house; but as to Larry, I consider you have wantonly injured my house, in representing him as a conspicuous guest at my table, and cast disrespect on the very respectable persons who were present. In justice to them and myself, and considering your obser...

(Anticipations of the Year 1900 continued.) 1z A most daring attempt was made last night by a New 11 Zealand Privateer to enter this harbour, with a view to plunder the Fishing villages in Watson's Bay. Owing to the darkness of the night she had nearly succeeded in passing under the guns of Fort George, (the ancient Sow and Pigs) when some suspicion arising to a sentry of ºf the 14th Australian Regiment of the Line then on duty, n an alarm was given, and at one broadside from the lower e I tier of guns the Privateer was split in half and the pea r ple were all drowned.

(Extracts from the Work of M. Garnier continued) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826
s (Extracts from the LWork of M. Garnier continued) THE great difference between the doctrine of Smith and of the economists, lies in the point from which they set out. In L the deduction of their consequences, the latter go back to the soil, as the primary source of all wealth: while the former regards labour as the universal agent, which in every case pro duces it. It will appear at first sight how very superior the school of the Scotch Professor, is to that of the French Ph! losophers, with regard to the practical utility as well as to the application of its precepts. Labour is a power of which man 1 isthe machine, and of course the, increase of this power can only be limited by the indefinite bounds of human intelligence and industry, and, it possesses, like these difficulties. a sus ceptioility of being directed by design and perfected by the aid of study. The earth, on the contrary, if we set aside the influence which labour has over the nature and quantity of its productions,...

engli44 f~ikee~alaut. - DEPARTURE OF THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR FROM THE ENGLISH COURT. WVE have the following intelligence from a high source, on which the fullest reliance may be placed :-Count Lievtn, the Russian. Ambassador, at our Court, will lea.1e London to-morrow morning. As the reports cir culatcu in the highest circles at the west end of the town are of the most alarming description, we hasten to give. the full particulars of the circumstances which have led to this important step. In the first place, it is not true, as is generally reported, that he has been recalled by the mnpileror, his master. In waiting upon the ministers of the Crown, the Ambassador finds that he cannot proceed in discussion upon any point, even of little interest, on account of the full powers granted .to the Duke of Well.ngton, authorised to arrange all matters with the Russian Emperor; the Ministers stating, that all ques" tions are referred to St. Petersburgh, and that they cannot give an answer in L...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826
TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR. SIR, As an old inhabitant, formerly under the law, my notice has been called to the mutilation of a tree, in George Street, near Mr. Garling's, which I did hope would survive town improve- ments, for some years the momento mori of former tyranny. However, the withered state of its limbs, and the rottenness of its heart, are prognostics of its approaching dissolution: and I hope the flogging system, to which it has on many occasions contributed its innocent support; the silent witness to the groans of the sufferer, will not survive it, but soon experi- ence the same fate; i. e. to be rooted out. Nevertherless, I, should recommend that a correct register be kept of the date of its planting ; its experience ; blightings, and ultimate dis- solution; as in a great measure involving the un-natural his- tory of the above system. I am, Yours, &c. A FIRST FLEETER. Sydney, July 17th, 1826.

LONDON FASHIONS FOR MARCH [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826

Theology, Ethics, Religious Intelligence, &c. &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826
EUleology, ethjic, Ed~igiours *ntlTlignce, &c. &c. LAST Sabbath we were walking alone under the rich ever-green shrubbery of the Government Domain, on the rockey margin of WVoolloonmoooloo Cove. The walk from Hyde Park, after passing the gothic chapel, though so near the town, is as private and undisturbed by the noise of Sydney streets, as though it were a dozen miles from Sydney, embosoaied in the silent recesses of the woods. Certainly every citizen of taste and feeling, must feel indebted to Governor Macquarie for the rich enjoyment this public walk places at all times within his power. We hope the Government of this colony '. ill never close this walk-or at all events, that they will ne ver deny us entrance until another be substituted on Elizabeth Point. ,We trust the vicinity of the intended new Government-house will not tempt the inhabitants thereof, when it comes to be inhabited, to imitate the garrison of the town, and thrust out all pedestrians. GOVERNOR a...
THE AMATEUR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826
THE AMATEUR CONCERT. ON Wednesday Evening about four hundred persons of both sexes assembled at the public School Room in Castleteagh-street, to listen to the musical selections of our Amateur performers of our new monthly Concert. Among the company we noticed the Lieutenant Governor, the Sheriffs the Clerk of the Council, the Clerk of the Peace, Dr. Townson, a number of Magistrates, Advo dates, Military Officers, Civil Officers, principal Mer chants, &c. &c. &c. All this denotes in unequivocal language the growing importance of this admirable public recreation. Admirable in itself as a Concert; and deserving of the special support and eulogium of every patriot; because by its means, the wall of partition has been broken down, which rendered our community so divided and so unhappy. We must say, we think the Gentlemen who have countenanced the Concerts deserve well of the country. It proves their philanthropy as well as their patriotism. We are quite serious w...

Lord Gifford, one of the commissioners appointed to open Parliament, read the Commission, and afterwards the King's Speech, which was as follows : .s MY LORDS ANb GENTLEMEN, " WE are commanded by His Majesty to inform you, that His Majesty has seen with regret the embarrass ment which has occurred in the pecuniary transactions of the country' since the close of the last Session of Parliament. THIS embarrassment did not arise from any political events, either at home or abroad-it was not pr.duced by any unexpected demand upon the public resources, nor by the apprehension of any interruption to the general tranquillity.
