Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Freemantle, Swan River, March 9, 1836. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 May 1836
O ttixguta Corýxrepo uIe ue. TO,THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Freemantle, Swan River, March 9, 1836. Srn,-I have received, by the Eagle, several packages of your valuable journal: The eleva ted tone of its columns, literary, moral, and religious, cannot but excite feelings of pleasure and respect; its influence: upon every well ordered mind must be beneficial, and may gradually awaken the undisciplined to; better habits' and feelings. It stands clearly the first in talent and principle amongst the journals of New South'Wales. It is out of sigh t of those of Van Dieman's (Land; they, in my opinion, are of the lowest grade. Amongst the numerous topics, I observe that you occasionally conde Scenii to notice this embryo colony. I am at a loss to conjecture who Viator may be, unless Captarin 1M'Crae, ofthe Zebra, lays claim to its paternity.. Pratt, of the;:Eagle, is well known. The first is mistaken' in several points; there'is no restriction :here of the free expression ol opinions; radi...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney, 7th May, 1836. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 May 1836
TO THE EDITOR, OF THE COLON:IST. Sydney, 7th May, 1836: SIR-We, the undersigned, enter our formal and solemn protest against the statements you have published in last CoLONIST, respecting a case now before the Presbytery of New South Wales; we pronounce these statements to be unmerited, un just, and untrue. The malignant personal aspersions, periodically cast upon us, in that Journal, after each meeting of Presbytery, and the last in particular, we do not mean to refute, considering the unhappy 'temper and state of mind of the traducer. But we must be permitted to inform the public, and the Presbyterian body, whose good opinion it is of more importance for us to preserve, than it appears to be to the writer; that the statements published in THE COLONIST, in reference to the transaction in question, are without a shadow of foundation in truth, so far as our motives and conduct are concerned. Having entered this protest, we should have refrained from stating any opinion upon the case,...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. April 7, 1836. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 May 1836
TO THE EDITOR OF- THE COLONIST,. April 7, 1836. Srit,-Thie late convictions for cattle-stealing, and the'great number of cases yet untried, toge ther with the narfow escape of a few charged with?tiat ciine, and of having purchased stoleh cattl? knowing them to have been stolen, have opened 'the eyes of landed and stock proprietors, to the heavy:losses which they have sustained in their' herds for years passed. And Sir John Jami. son anrd Mr..W. C. Wentworth, both sufferers'to a considerable extent, are, now actively employed prosecuting parties' charged with having plun dered' them of stock to a considerable amount. "The apathy with which stockholders have allowed themselves for; years past to be plun-.? 'dered by daring and. desperate gangs is now--. fog-like-fading ,awayj ; aand it is to be hoped, that they will, puoe ,nd all, put their shoulders' to the wheel, and assist in the annihilation of the, numerous gangs of the lowest of our population,: that have risen by plunder to a s...

THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN SCHOOL SYSTEM ESTABLISHED IN PORTUGAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 May 1836
THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN SCHOOL SYSTEM ESTABLISHED IN PORTUGAL. [FROM THE MORNING CHRONICLE. 23RD NOVEMBER.] THERE is nothingmore fatal to liberty than ignorance°;I for the civilization of a people is the best guarantee for the. preservation of their freedom.-So say our MVinisters here, in some introductory remarks for im proving the education of the people. It is a fine, though trite theory, but one of which the rulers of nations too often lose sight in their practice. I may hereafter have occasion to observe to what extent it had been adopted, in Portugal; but it has been re called to ,my recollection just now, by its having received the practical approbation-of our Sovereign, who has just (from the privy purse) conferred a dona tion of two contos of reis (about 4801.) to be distri-, buted in premiums amongst the pupils in the Casa Pia: It is a noble institution, one of the very few which this country contains, and well entitled to the royal patronage which is extended to it; thie ...

Domestic Intelligence. [CONTINUED.] BENJAMIN WARBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 May 1836
Domestic Intelitgence. &nbsp; [CONTINUED.] BENJAMIN WARBY. On Thursday last, Benjamin Warby was placed at the bar of the Supreme Court, charged with receiving a number of cattle knowing them to be stolen, the property of various individuals. This case has excited considerable attention. A brother of the prisoner was tried and convicted on the clearest testimony at the last Session of the Supreme Court, for cattle-stealing; it ap peared on his trial that he had possesed himself of immense herds of cattle in a very short time, but that his character had been so good, that; though all were surprised at the rapidity with which his herds increased, yet were they un- willing to suspect him of resorting to, cattle- stealing. Through the exertions of Henry O'Brien, Esq., J. P., of Yass, the immense extent of cattle-stealing carried on in that part of the country attracted public attention, and suspicion at last fell on Warby, for it was impossible in any other way to account for the...
