THE MONITOR FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826

THE MONITOR FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1826. MARY KANE of. Parramatta, a widow, with a Yount family, was about to treat with a prisoner Thomas Morta more, whose good conduct (so Mortiniore represented the matter to the poor woman) had procured him the privilege of sleeping out of barracks, as to letting him a back. room in her house to sleep in. (Our readers will under stand that at Windsor, Parramatta and Sydney, great .numbers of convicts of good conduct are allowed to sleep out of barracks-and as they cannot. earth themselves. like the fox nor roost like the. bird., they are compelled to take bits of skillens of poor widows, ticket-of-leave men, and others, who are. landlords of small hovels of two or three rooms. A constable, being rewarded by the present inquisition by being allowed to pocket the. fines,. soon picks a hole in the coat of these people, and conse-" quently it is not tong before the household gets brokenr up; and with flayed backs the inmates are soon scatteredi to the four...

MAGISTERIAL DECISIONS. .Extracts from Gazette Police Report, with Criticisms thereon.

SUPREME COURT.—THURSDAY, JULY 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826

SUPREME COURT.-THURSDAY, JULY 20. DR. WARDELL moved for a Rule to shew cause why a criminal information should not be filed against a person of rank upon the affidavits of Mary Reynolds and others -for (as it appeared to them) compounding felony. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL contended, that as a Magis trate, it was necessary that the accused should have been served with a notice of the proceedings. DR. WARDELL stated in reply, that the charge was instituted against the accused as a private individual and not in his magis terial capacity. THE CHIEF JUSTICE decided that a notice should be served previous to the application being made.-Motion withdrawn. A CERTAN gentleman who we understand is pret- ty generally believed to have been our informant relative to the Ship Woodman, is, we beg leave to state, perfectly innocent of the imputation. Moreover, we know no- thing of any apology being made as the Gazette says, and we do not credit its statement. Another draft of 70 prisoners has been receiv...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 21 July 1826

Domestic Intelligence     WE have seen samples of the Rum and Sugar of Port Macquarie. The latter is much better than the former. But we disapprove of planting Sugar in so cold a latitude as Port Macquarie. It is all money thrown away; and if the Bills drawn on His Majesty's Treasury for the support of such trumpery speculations were expended in New South Wales in Post Offices, and a hundred other things urgently required, it would shew a little common sense in our Rulers. HAVING more particularly investigated the circum stances mentioned in our last two numbers relative to the Ship Woodman, we are fully satisfied, that whatever might have taken place at the Cape de Verds, occurred not only without Captain Leary's sanction, but even without his knowledge. Captain Leary has himself most respectable relations in the United Kingdom of the Catholic per suasion, which renders our conviction of his ignorance of the affair (if it did take place) complete. We wish ...

THE COUNTRY PARSONS.—AN ECLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 28 July 1826

THE COUNTRY PARSONS.--A ECLOGUE. "A SMALL neat house, and little spot of ground, Where herbs, and fruits, and kitchen-stuff were found, The humble vicar of North-Wilford bless'd. Small was his living-but his heart at rest: Unseen, unblam'd he past his time away, He smok'd, or rode, or mus'd, or walk'd all day': Thro' all the year no axious cares he knew, But just at Easter, when he claim'd his due; And then the surly rustic's churlish pride His well-earn'd tithes disputed or denied. The vicar still preferring want to strife, Gave up his dues to lead a peaceful life. His garden once in peusive muse he sought, His pipe attended, as a friend to thought; Ad while the smoke in eddies round him play'd, A neighb'ring vicar ent'ring he survey'd: One like himself, a downright honest priest, Whose love of peace his scanty dues decreas'd. Suppose the little ceremones done, And all the rites of lighting pipes begun; Suppose the whiffs in sober sort flow rouud, And both in musing very deeply dro...

Utbwte~Tog~, QEtbic%, 3iioud~ *nteTlicnce, r&c. $ c. CHRISTIANS are prone to pre-occupy themselves with the admiration of those opinions by which they stand distinguished as a church or a sect from other Christi ans ; and instead of being quite unfettered to receive the whole council of the. Divine Will, they are prepared to welcome it no further than as it bears upon and stands with opinions which they already favour. To this pre judgment the etirly use of catechisnis mainly contributes; which, however serviceable in their place, have the dis advantage of presenting the truth ina form altogether different from what it occupies in the world itself. In the one it is presented to the intellect chiefly, (and in the catechism of our church to an intellect of a very subtile order; ) in the other it is presented more frequently to the heart, to the affections, to the imitation, to the fancy, and. to all the faculties of the soul. In early youth, which is applied to with those comp...
