SIR LOWRY COLE AND Popular Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 1 August 1829
SIR LOWRY COLE AND opulahr Sot ermtnent. We quote from " The South Africa* Commercial Advertiser," the very great i provement which has taken place in the mode of administering the Governmepth of the Cape of Good Hope, since the recal of Lord Charles Somerset, and the' arrival of the new Governor Sir Lowry: Cole: " A good deal has been already done towards breaking up that gloom and mystery, which once enveloped all the transactions of our Government, keeping the public mind in a state of uncertainty and fear. Government was addressed in whispers; you had as it were, to lake ol? your shoes when you approached the, sacred ground. Men presented themi )selves separately, and were dealt with merely as private individuals. To appear' in a body as subjects, at.tbe end of a Pe titi n or Memorial, would have appeared unpardonable insolence. It was dictating to Government.. This cowardly-epirit bas fled ! It is now seen to be the duty of those who address the Head of the Com munity, to do so...

To ?um EDITOa or TLE SYDNEY MONITOTi. Sydney-, July 24th, 1829'1 SIR, I am a newly-arrived Emigrant, and having lately amused myself with perusintg some por tions of your independent Journal of an old date, I feel it my duty to give my humble tes timnony from sad experience, of the correct view which von took last year of the conse quences to Emigrants in England like my self, from the publication in the Gazette and .4ustralian of such letters as X. Y. Z's, Ru bio's, &c. The folly, not to say malignity, of praising this Colony as a perfect paradise-a second Eden-has come to pass-the influx of.eingration and merchandise to an injurious extent-the consequent scarcity of money the high price of live stock induced wlew yeuts ago-the equally suddet depression of the same' -the crowded debtors' wards-and the com plete stagnation of the whole machine-all, all have been, augmented by the incorrect and dishonest representations of such writers in . the public journals, as . the above...

A RIDDLE-lly Loan Bvno-. . (Wriicts in a Lady's scrap-book, and never before published.) I am not in youth, nor in manhood, nor ago, B1uin infamy ever asm known; I'm a stranger alike to the fool and Lite sage, And though I'u distinguislh'd in llistory's pngo, I always am greatest alone.

To TILE IlunT HonoURiLss SIR GEORGE MURRAY, H. Ml. PRINCIPAL SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES, &C &C. &C. Sydney, July 24th, 1829. SI, I am not aware to what extent the civil offi cers of rank in this Colony are justified by your.regulations, in taking up the land of New South Wales, and therefore what I am going to mention to you, may perlha s entirely coin cide with your ideas of iWrpriety. Still how. ever I wish that you should bemade acquainted through my Journal, with certain circum. stances attendant on the present Secretary of the Colony, being grantee, purchaser, and renter of such large quantities of picked land in N.

HAWRESBURY RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 1 August 1829
These Races shewv, that however thepepp'e 1 of the soil may be depressed by three bad.har. vests, their spirit is not so broken as not to mind relief in a few days of public reoreation, t such as races in New South Wales, as else where, aXord. It is singular to observe thl perversity of Government. The people who can least afford it are indulged with races, while the inhabitants of Sydney are forbid to enjoy the pleasures of Shakspeare and the drama. But we will abandon this hateful re. collection, and proceed to narrate briefly the sports of the 11 indsor Turf, as recorded in i hursday's Gazette. Tltelvaline of the cups and purses was paid into the hands of the res pective winners, at the conclusion of each race. A consummation which (it is said) is devoutly to be wished to take place at what are emphatically called " Governor Darling's Raaces" at Parramatta. The Races on each day commenced at 12. o'clock, and were as followv: WEDNESDAY, 22na. FIRST RACE. The Stewardh' Cup, value £...

T12 SYDNEY MONITOR ShTURDAY AFTEaNOON, AUGUST 1, 1829. Some twelvemonths back, we were on the eve of exposing the imbecility of a certa'n association, called '' The Chamber of Commerce," which .exists. when it dis plays animation, near the King's Wharf We were once discontented members of this Association, and fin:ling our dissatis faction worked no reform in the principles and practice thereof, while it took from us two or three or four pourids a year, (we forget; which), we resigned the honors of membership. But we have been with heldlatterly from a public comment on the Chamber. becanse'we learned that a gen. tleman had been chosen as its President, 'for whose liberal and enlightened views of things, we 'have always had great res pect.

(LAST LEADING ARTICLE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 1 August 1829
(LAST LEADING ARTICLE) A singular leader appeared in the Official Journal, which we doubt not was written at the suggestion of a Gentle- man not far from Macquarie Place. It is too full of Utopian gossip, for us to wade through the whole of it. A small portion we will quote and comment upon " ABOUT ten months ago, our Government commenced a very laudable practice—that of gran- ting land to young ladies on their marriage. The expediency and liberality of this measure cannot be reasonably doubted, as it is at once an encourage- ment to marriage, an inducement to permanent residence in the Colony, and a foundation for the future support and settlement of the family." We wonder whether this piece of courtly argument has its origin, like the &nbsp; "laudable practice" thus belauded, in the circumstance of a high civil officer having brought to this Colony, a large family of that sex, in whose behalf the Reverend Editor is all at once so eloquent ? At all events, it is notorious t...
