Original Poetry. THE IRISH STEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 February 1835
THE IRISH STEW. ' ' I sing of good eating! There once befel. AA-noble! feast at a Sydney Hotel ! ...There was plenty for me, and plenty for you; , IBut the pride of the Board was an Irish stew. 4'Who it was that got up the feast, Is of many important things the least For a feast there was, and that is most truei And the principal dish was an Irish stew:. There were guests of every rank and station, Of every possible creed and nation; Mahometan, Christian, Turk and Jew; :But'the only dish was an Irish stew! An.aIrish Roman Catholic priest -Got up in his place and blessed the feast, . :And then helped himself, as he well could do, To a trencher-full of the Irish stew. He dived right into it all in a minute:, i And showed there was never a Bible in it. 'For what,'" said he, "had the Bible to: do; i: .. :Either inside or outside an Irish stew?? " Therewa imusicE too, bothloudand silhrill,=' . To cheer upthose who were eating their fill* And some;,it is said,'took mountain-dew .In plenti...

Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 February 1835
fTO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sii,--You appear to deserve the hearty thanks anid strenuous support, of every well-wisher to his adopted 'country, for the able and :energetic manner in which you have taken up and dis cussed the very important subject of emigration. Coinciding entirely with you in opinion as to the sort of emigration to these colonies which should be encouraged, that of industrious fami lies'; I would flirther observe that this business of sending single women proceeds.entirely upon a fallacy in the alleged disproportion of the sexes.' It is trie, there is such disproportion; but' what .occasions' it? the large importation of male prisoners--of men who are not in a capacity to marry. Then if the prisoners cannot take these young women, by whom shall they be appro priated? .: Will the :respectable settlers that are disengaged have' themn? I rather think the few that are inf want will not be disposed to look for their dearest companions to a London broker who sends to...
Colonial Politics. THE PROPOSED EXPEDITION OF DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 February 1835
THE PROPOSED EXPEDITION OF DISCOVERY. It would scarcely be credited, were the fact not sufficiently notorious, that in the nine- teenth century- a period in the world's history so eminently distinguished above all others for the eager and unremittinig pursuit of knowledge of every description, and for the march of improvement - the British Government should still be allowing this vast continent, of which it has obtained quiet and peaceable possession on behalf of the people of Great Britain and Ireland, to remain a mere terra incognita, with the physical constitution of which we are still almost entirely unacquainted. We cannot impute the circumstance in question to the general apaithy and indifference of the British Government with regard to the progress of geographical discovery; for the numerous and costly expeditions that have already been fitted out by the British Go- vernment to ascertain the limits and the character of the regions that lie buried beneath the thick - ribbed ...
No. III. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SYDNEY HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 February 1835
No. III. TO THE EDITORS OF THE SYDNEY HERALD,: GENTLEMEN,-It having been frequently published that I was persecuted in this colony, in the year 1810, for administering the Lord's Supper, and was &nbsp; threatened with expulsion from the country, I had determined to let the matter rest, and to suffer those who had persecuted to go down to the grave in peace. I happened to meet with a few numbers of the Sydney &nbsp; Gazette, in the year 1827, when I was in the islands, more than 2,600 miles distant from Sydney, wherein I saw, in the extracts from Mr. Marsden's pamphlet, the misrepresentations resorted to, in order to degrade me, and justify the persecution. My missionary brethren felt themselves deeply interested, but con- curred with me in thinking that the publication would have all the effects it well could have, before I could publish my statement. Nothing, therefore, was pub- lished on my part. About five weeks ago, I received a long letter from Mr. Marsden on th...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 26 February 1835
WE are happy to find that our contemporary of The Herald has begun to adopt our views in regard to the disposal of the funds arising from the sales of Crown Land throughout the Ter- ritory. He has fairly given up the roads and &nbsp; bridges, as far as his former attempts to get them fastened on the land-fund were concerned; and his sole object now is, to obtain better terms for the newly-arrived emigrant, of capital, who, it seems, is very frequently thrown out of his in- tended purchase by actual proprietors in the colony, who are generally able to bid above him for all land adjoining their own estates. In this, object we most cordially concur with our friend, and brother. And as his Excellency the Go- vernor has very properly taken the case of newly arrived emigrants of capital into his favourable &nbsp; consideration, by allowing any land they may select for purchase within three months after their arrival in the colony to be sold after one month's notice, instea...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 5 March 1835
TO'HTHE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST SSIR.--Observing in. your last number an ex tract from the work of Dr. Lang, contaiuing the following assage which .I had not before met .with, I beg you will allow me to correct an error under which that writer seems to labour-. _ Major Mitchell's expedition was unfortunate in its iue::A :dep8t.. was formed in the-course of the :9urney, at which a large portion of the provisions in teI:feided for the expedition was deposited under the chargeof two convict servants, No depot "was formed, though it had been ar ,rabnged that one should have been formed by the :main party. A surveyo' was proceeding with is oWnu dray and cattle which he had brought with him, on the emergency, from his own'farm, `:(not having any means of transpodt provided him y'I:.the Government), with such provisions as he ,Kcould. procure at a short notice, to join the in .tended depbt. In consequence of the niscon i.;duct of the Imen the bullocks strayed away, and ,the party being in g...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST ON SWEARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 5 March 1835
TO THE ED1-TOR- OFTiHE COLONIST: ~--- 7 ON SWEARING. SIR.-For the benefit, I would hope, of the lieges in this colony, allow me to copy a paragraph fromn a late English paper, (The Guardian) rela tive to a very prevalent vice. SWEARING.-By .the 19 Geo. ii. 'Cap. 21., it is enacted, that if, any person profanely swear, and: be convicted bly thbe oath of on wi fnresashehliull fofeit as,follows :--If a -ay labourer",sloldier or sailor; oie shilling; if uwder ,the degree ,of a geitlernairi tivo shillings ; and, if of the de.eeof " a :gentleman, five shiillings.; for tlie second offence,the penalties are to be doubled, and for every subsequent offence, the 'pealties are -to, be .trebled'." We rather suspect that this excellent law is not genierally known to be in our statute book-bj'its every day violation. There is' one difficulty in the above clause;, as applying to the colony of.New South :Wales~ The swearer must be convicted, on the oath of another. As magistrates, conrstables, and a...
