ONE PORTRAIT MORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

ONE 'PORTRAIT MORE. A Gentleman of the name of M-n, who had for some time been first officer in a vessel in the India trade, and had saved a little money in that caprcity, married a young lady from a boarding school at Calcutta, whose grandfather had been Judge-Advocate of this colony during the unfor tunate administration of Governor Bligh, and took his passage to this colony as a settler per the ship Alexander, Captain Ramsay, bringing a near re lative of his wife's, also a grand-daughter of the Colonial functionary we have just mentioned, along with him. What occurred during the voy age we leave our readers to conjecture; but. on Mr. M. and his family being domiciled in a respectable lodging-house in Sydney, Captain R. succeeded during the absence, and of course without the knowledge, of Mr. M., in inducing that, gentleman's unmarried relative to leave Mr. M.'s house, and to accompany him to some convenient retreat of his own, under the promise of his marrying her at Calcutta.

THE PRESBYTERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

THE PRESBYTERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES. WE have been told that our recent publication of certain proceedings of this body was not only unwarranted, but contrary to the usual practice ,in such cases in the mother-country. On the contrary, we reply, a Presbytery is an open Court, and in Scotland the proceedings of such Courts are uniformly published, when anything is said or done in them of the slightest interest to the public. The only part of the proceedings in the case we reported that was at all private was the examina tion of the witness; and that examination, we shewed was stopped at the very outset. The publi cation of the case moreover was a matter of expe diency, if not of absolute necessity, on the part of Dr. Lang and his elder, as an explanation of the grounds on which they had considered the further prosecution of it, under existing circum stances, a hopeless undertaking. We have since been told indeed, that the Presbytery, that is the present majority, will take up the case a...

Colonial Statistics. COLONIZATION IN THE SOUTH SEAS. THE GALLIPAGOS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

COLONIZATION IN THE,SOUTH SEAS. THE GALLIPAGOS. PRODM THE VOYAGE OF THE U. S. FRIGATE POTOMAC.' BY J. N. REYNOLDS. " THIr, in some respects, interesting group, which com prises a large number of small islands, is situated nearly under the equator, between the eigthy-ninth and ninety-second degrees of west longitude-about two hundred and forty leagues west of the American continent. A majority of these islands a e situated a lit:le south of the equinoctial line, though a few scat tered islands are found north of it. Albemarle Island, which is the largest of the cluster, is more than se venty miles in length, and stretches north and south, with an eastern coast that is nearly straight; but, its western side is deeply concave, embracing the vol canic Island of Narborough. The north head of Al bemarle terminates westwardly in Cape Berkeley, which is exactly under the line. South and east of Albemarle are Charles' Islands, Ilood's, Chatham's, Barrington's, Downe's, Porter's, and James' I...

Colonial Politics. OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

OtrRSELVES. O.'Obtta readers are aware that this Journal was es A'tiblished. on the first of January, 1835, for the express purpose of reviving and re-establishing :the Australian College--an Institution which had .been originally founded, under the most favourable :aispices, in the year 1831, but which had after 'wards been almost annihilated, through the long continued and virulent system of annoyance ,and opposition, to which it was subsequently and Sandeservedly exposed from the Convict and Efnhancipist Press of the colony.. At that period the Institution in question had not only to en 'counter the opposition and annoyance to which we have just alluded, but to experience the un ,expected desertion and hostility of one of its own .professed friends. Our readers are aware, how .ever, that these opposing forces, however formid 'able in appearance at the outset, have, during ;the last ..sixteen months, been all either succes 'sively neutralized or annihilated. The primary object of ...

Original Correspondence. JOINT STOCK VINEYARDS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

JOINT STOCK VINEYARDS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. SIR,--Amidst the various schemes which are en gaging the attention of the monied interests in this colony, and chiefly as the influence which they will exert over the moral and political well-being of the people is problematical, I venture to sug gest another plan, which I presume will meet the countenance and support of the intelligent and wealthy. Although the topic has often been discussed and urged by many, viz., the Plantation of Vineyards, it appears to me that the scheme of a company to carry into effect this object is the best for many reasons (a few of which I shall particularise) which can easily be adopted. With every settler such a pursuit is considered a very secondary object, of distant and precarious advantage, and in every point of view we admit coming far short of the very lucrative pursuits of the grazier and sheep farmer. Besides it must be remembered that the settler's avocations are numerous, and his land bei...

English Extracts. THE IRISH AND SCOTCH ECCLESIASTICAL ESTABLISHMENTS CONTRASTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

THE IRISH AND SCOTCH ECCLESIASTI CAL ESTABLISHMENTS CONTRASTED. [FROMc THE IMORNING CHRONICLE, OCT. 12.] AND now let us turn to Scotland. In what country are the duties of the Christian Ministry more faith fully performed 1 Where are the Clergy, as a body, more looked up to, respected, and beloved ? And what is the cost of this most efficient, and praise worthy, and truly Christian Establishment-an es tablishment, be it recollected, in which, although there be neither Archbishops nor Bishops to repress them, sinecures are unknown. Non-residence is un known-Pluralities are unknown-where the pastor is content to live by the flock which he tends, and claims no remuneration where no services are per formed. The present population of Scotland amounts.to two millions and a halt, of whom 1,600,000 at the least, are members of the Established Presbyterian Church. The whole cost of this church, including the Parlia mentary grant of 11,4301. per annum, the object of which is to augment to 150...

EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

EXECUTION. WE feel ourselves compelled, in justice to the: relatives of the unfortunate man Wales, who, suffered the extreme penalty of the law, along; with Pickering on Tuesday week, to notice a. misstatement which"has gone the round of the colonial journals. Wales was the son of re spectable parents in, the town of Greenock in. Scotland, but went early astray from the paths of rectitude. He made his escape from the jail o!. Greenock, where he was confined for some of fence in the year .1825, and twenty pounds was offered for his apprehension; he was subse quently captured, tried, and sentenced to trans portation to this colony for fourteen yetrs. hlis career here is well known, his daring depredations having rendered the Southern Road almost im passable for five or six months. Pickering, his accomplice in some of his depredations, was almost brutishly ignorant:of all the prinqiples of divine revelation, and displayed on the scaffold a good deal .of !that stupid recklessness which ...

FIRE AND LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

FIRE AND LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY. A PUBLIC Meeting of this Company was held at the Pulteney Hotel, on Friday last, pursuant to advertisement, which was numerously at tended. Mr. Lamb, the Chairman of the Pro visional Committee, laid their Report before the Meeting. The Deed of Settlement was then read and approved of, and the Meeting separated. The whole of the shares, we are happy to hear are taken up, and the greater part of the first instalment already paid.

THE CASSILIS MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

THE CASSILIS MURDER. AT the Supreme Court, on Saturday last, John Dacey, a prisoner of the Crown, was placed at the Bar' charged with the wilful murder of Peter Hans, at Vinicent's Station, County of Cassilis, on the 13th of February last. From the evidence of a Stock-keeper on a neighbouring station, the Jury were satisfied that the deceased came by his death from the brutal treatment alleged to have been inflicted'by the.prisoner at the bar; a verdict of guilty was accordingly returned, and sentence of death passed'on the prisoner, who Was ordered for execution on Monday morning. Since the t'ripl however, through the humane exertions of 'Willianm Bowman, Esq., of Richmond, who 'ap-. pened to be in Sydney at the time of the trial, and knowing the real circumstances of the case caused a subsequent enquiry to be entered into, and the result was a respite granted to the prisoner until further orders. It now appears, that Dacey, who had not been long in the colony, but who has been fou...

BUSHRANGING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

BUSHRANGING. WE have been favoured with the perusal of a letter from Invermein, giving an account of the depredations committed by some bushrangers who it appears are at large in the distant interior. A station of Colonel Dumaresq's situated be- yond the Peel River, has been visited by them several times. On their first visit, the bush- rangers, two in number, and well armed, carried away a variety of stores and two horses, the property of Colonel Dumaresq. Information of their visit was forwarded by Mr. Borthwick, the superintendent on the establishment, to the com- mander of the mounted police, but before the arrival of the party sent in search of the depre- dators, the bushrangers paid a second visit to the station, behaving more outrageously than before. They carried away with them the greater part of Mr. Borthwick's wearing apparel, and their con- duct in other respects was so outrageous, that Mr. B. thought it necessary to remove his family for safety to the Australian Agricul...

PENAL DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 19 May 1836

PENAL DISCIPLINE. WVE extract the fbllowing judicious remarks from The Launceston Advertiser of April 28, with the substance of which we heartily concur. If it be expedient and necessary in a small colony like Van Dieman's Land, how much more necessary must it be in a colony of such importance and extent as this, that the Governor should be re lieved of the very peculiar duties attached to the general superintendence and management of the convict population. There should not merely be a Superintendent of Convicts appointed to carry the Governor's regulations into effect-there ought either to be an officer appointed for that department, possessing similar colonial powers to those of one of the Secretaries of State in Eng land-or rather there ought to be a Board of such officers, charged with the whole manage ment and superintendence of penal discipline in the colony, empowered to make regulations sub ject to the approval of the Governor, and aun thorised to decide in all cases of com...
