SIDNE7. OPINIONS OF THEl SYDNRY PRlESS ON TIHE NEW LAND RRGU. LA'TIONS. WVe have been agreeably surprised at finding that the Papers of Sydney has nt joined chorus with the screech owls of the Council. who have hitherto been so accustomed to darkness, that the light frightens them out of all propriety. T'['he unanimity of these birds of wisdom is most exemplary. The most reverend having been ac customed to the darkness of bigotry, gave the signal screech, and the bur den *e his cry ?s t'kea .ip.,in solo, by each owl in succession, until their o!d ruined tower shook again with the ear.sp!itting echo of their grand fit nale. That the press has not unani. qously, sympathised , with them will appear from the following extracts. The first is from the Australasian Chronicle, a paper which is more free from antiquated prejudice,, than most of its Reformed brethren : We do not lhesitate, upon the whole, to express our entire approbation of hias important measure; so far, at least as it is y...

IM11MIGHAT ON. .It must be highly grstifying to our readers in the west, who have been suffering immense losses from the want rof. servants to keep pace with their entorprising spirit, that arrangements have been made for an eff.ctual, though distaut meamure of relief. Mr'Rickett has been autho. rised to proceed to England to en gage farm-servants under indenture for three years.* The opportunity of procuring servants through this channe! is open to all who may be willing to cover the ,mall additional expense incurred thereby. T'he u_.mre. uir.ed_foreach_ erTan t._is. three poands, one hlrlF on subscrib ing, and the other half on arrival of the indented servant. A ,small'and respectable meeting was hold at Geelong on Tuesday last, on this question, preliminary to. a more general and public gathoring. We heartily approve of this me. thod of sending missionaries to the benighted peasantry of England. The results to the colony will be no les;-beneficial. It will show that we are in ecr...
