English Extracts. GOLD MINES IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
- 31 Itgi0ft .xtva~ct0. . GOLD :MINES 'IN THE UNITED STATES. T?rE accounts, lately- received from,. the United States, have dwelt much-on the improved pros pects of the gold mines in the southern part of the Union, which are asserted by some to be more productive than those in any other part of the world, Mexico and Peru not excepted. A very rapid increase is, however, borne out .by official documents as will appear by the sub joined reporfton the subject, presented in January 1834, by the Director of the'Mint to the Presi dent of the United States: The annexed statement' exhibits the. quantity of gold received from. the several districts of the United States, which have thus far produced it in quantities to be an object of regard, commencing with the year 1824. Previously to that period, gold had been re ceived at the Mint only from North Carolina, from which quarter it was first ,transmiited for coinage in 1804. During the interval, however;, from that date to. 1823, inclusive, th...

PsaErArs few of our readers 'are aware, that a isort of Scientific Parliament, consisting of dele 'r gates from all parts of the British Empire,'. as. well as from several of the, Continental States, has been established in: Great Britain within the last few years. We have not ascertained 'the 'particulars circumstances that gave rise to- it; Sbntit appears to have suggested. itself to varions individuals in the M"other Country,. eminent for their scientific& attainments, that a general Associationh f the most distinguished men in all the vatrious departments of scientific investigation thl!roughout: "the British Empire,' to. hold. annual Smeetings for the general advancement of Science, would prove highly conducive, to the attainment of that gieat object.

THE ABSENT FATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
THE ABSENT FATHER. " Farewell !-How void the melancholy heart Breathes those sad accents when afar we wend, From all that we have loved and love, to part, And with the world's wide chances to contend," So sung the soldier-bard-and truly sung The lay of hearts enwreathed in changeless love; Who forced asunder-parent from his young,- The pangs of long affection sore to prove. But where's the ray to cheer the hopeless heart? Anticipatioq's prospects all are void: ,And darkness shadows every scheme and art His energies, in vain to find, have tried. Shall he, who erst has gamboll'd in the ray Of brightly-beaming suns and fortune's smiles, Not once again return unto the day ? Nor fairy vision cheer him with its guiles? While retrospection presses on the mind; Nor suffers once idea's streams to flow, Adversity is sure our haunts to find, And chain the soul in anguish, grief and woe.? Yet 'midst this void, the desolated mind SIs caught by hope's small transitory ray,? That tells him those h...
CHINESE EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
CHINESE EMIGRATION. IN a country of long standing civilization like China, where life and property have enjoyed a degree of security unknown to other Asiatic na tions, and where a dense population pressing against the means of subsistence, has, in conse quence 'been generated; the causes which lead to emigration have existed for ages, and against the operations of so overwhelming a natural cause, the Imperial laws have necessarily be come a dead letter, and the Emperor preaches in v- in in favour of veneration for the manes of an cestors, when he cannot fill the bellies of the living generations. Notwithstanding this, how ever, extensive Chinese Emigration and conse quent colonization, are after all, only coeval with the first settlement of European nations in the East; and it is without doubt to the protection which the organized European Governments have directly or indirectly afforded, that the resort of the Chinese is to be principally ascribed. As the dominions, industry, and c...
Colonial Politics. FEMALE EMIGRATION. MORE WORK FOR MR. MARSHALL ! [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 February 1835
FEMALE EMIGRATION. MORE WORK FOR. MR. MARSHALL! We had commenced a series of articles on a subject of not less vital importance to the moral welfare of this colony than either &nbsp; of the two we have already discussed in &nbsp; our articles on Emigration and Education, &nbsp; when a pamphlet entitled, 'A Reply to &nbsp; the misrepresentations which have been put forth respecting Female Emigration; by &nbsp; JOHN MARSHALL, Agent to the Emigration &nbsp; Committee , was put into our hands. As the pamphlet in question, of which we shall presently give the reader some account, contains nothing that invalidates our own statements relative to the whole character And tendency of the system. of female emigration to New South Wales and Van Dieman's Land, as hitherto pursued by the London Board and their agent, Mr. MAR SHALL. We should not have deemed it &nbsp; necessary to add a single syllable to what we have already advanced on the ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney;' Feb.23, 1835. Sire,-I' request you will do me the favour to insert ,the accompanying correspondence under the head of I1eligious Intelligence, in the next number of your pa per. It originated in a passage in the 5th chapter of the 2nd vol. of my recently published Account of this colony, in which the Rev. Mr. Marsden con ceives there has been a considerable degree of misre presentation relative to a transaction which occurred in Sydney so long ago as the year 1810, and in which himself and the Rev. Mr. Crook of the London Mlis sionary Society were concerned. Mr. Crook's letter, which forms part of the corresppndence subjoined, will prove to every candid reader, that my account of the transaction in question was as fair and candid a one as could possibly have been given. 1 shall therefore refrain from saying a single syllable on the subject, with the exception of merely observing, that .the calling in question of Mr. Crook's standing as a minis...

No. I. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SYDNEY HERALD. GENTLEMEN,-The Revd. Dr. Lang in his history of New South Wales, which he lately published, has charged me with exhibiting a spirit of ?' Episcopalian intolerance" towards Mr. William Crook, on account of his being a Dissenter, and also towards the Scots Presbyterians. Iin consequence of the above charge I addressed a letter to Mr. Crook, a copy of which I now forward to' you, and to which I have received no reply. I have' therefore to request that you will do me the fayour to publish this letter with the extract ot a paragraph froni a, pamphlet published by Dr, Lang in 1828, From these documents, laid before the Public in your paper,,every one,who reads them may form his own opinion how far the Doctor's state ments are correct. I am fully aware, from the Doc tor's sacred character and jrank in society, many may be induced to believe all that the Doctor has.pub lished'is true, and there can b'e no doubt.but' that: it was the Doctor's'inten...

No. 11. Parramatta, 12th January, 1835. Sru,--The second* volume of Dr. Lang's publica tion has been put into my hands by a friend, in which I 'observe a paragraph evidently intended to apply to me, as at the period to which Dr. Lang:.alludes, there was no other person in the Colony to whom it :could refer.. Herein I am accused of " exhibiting an intolerant spirit," especially towards you-one of the Mis sionaries of the Society Islands. In reply to this accusation, I will, as correctly as, my memory en ables me; state the.circunistance to which the Doctor alludes. Soon after the Missions, to the South Sea Islands were formed, the Directors did me the honor to nomi inate me as one of the Directors and Agent for their Missions in the South Sea Islands. I was informed that shortly after your arrival at the Islands you re turned to England, where, after remaining, some time, you came to New South Wales with the view of join ing the Mission in Tahiti. The Directors never in formed me whe...
