Education. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 February 1829

Education. The cause of education is said to he gaining ground in Great Britain. Dr CHALMERS says England is two centuries be- hind Scotland in this respect. The English live, however, in an age in which much may be accomplished in a short time. If the population of a country be changed once in thirty years, surely it would be possible to equal, if not to go beyond the present state of Scotland in fifty years. Infant Schools afford the very earliest beginning, and their silent but rapid pro- gress is a source of great satisfaction. We see Missionaries   in all our Colonies, and in foreign lands, introducing educa- tion every where. It precedes the Gospel—prepares the soil —and leads the way to that rich and abundant harvest, which, under the Divine blessing, is now ripening. What is thus found efficacious abroad, are our countrymen adopting at home. —Although it is to be regretted, that there are still several   of the parishes in this Island altogether without public s...

The Blacks. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 February 1829

The Blacks             The black natives have not during the last six or seven weeks been seen or known to have committed any offences at this side of the Island. This augurs favourable of the effects of the Field Police pursuing them from the settled districts. A tribe has however on the other side of the Island speared dangerously a stock-keeper belonging to Mr. J. W. Bell.— On Thursday last, a boy about 10 years of age, named Mor- gan, was beat dreadfully by these savages, at Pleasant-hills,   but hopes are entertained of his recovery.

Original Correspondence. Female Factory and House of Correction. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 February 1829

Original Correspondence.     Female Factory and House of Correction. Mr. EDITOR»-On reading some rather witty articles in the Journals of Hobart Town, upon the improved mode of occu- pation for the unhappy female offenders, whose misconduct renders it necessary to their close confinement, I am led to the following views upon the importance of such an Institution, as   a Penitentiary and Female House of Correction :-     A Colonial writer, of no ordinary powers, has lately writ- ten well, and to the purpose, on the abuses existing, or said to be existing, in the Penitentiary. With due respect for his opinions, always entitled to the highest consideration, from his welI known talent and experience, I trust he will excuse so humble an individual as myself from saying, that he took too narrow a view of the subject. What in the name of won- der do we want with a Penitentiary or a Female House of   Correction? T...

""Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into ', your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palla ' dium of all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights." *." JUNIÜS. Wo bave said that dominion and liberty, things so opposite in their nature, are reconciled in the "British Government.

Melancholy Occurrence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 6 March 1829

      Melancholy Occurrence. A very old Colonist, a French Gentlemen, highly allied, generally understood to be a branch of the Royal family of Bourbon, has lately been missing in Argyle, and it is supposed he now lies a corpse in some dreadful yawning gullies which lead to Shoal Haven. Monsieur Louis was an emigrant, who fled from Paris in 1792; and was induced, under the patron-   age of the British Goveioment, to come over to N. S. Wales in the early settlement of the Colony. M. Louis was a Catho- lic Gentleman and a scholar; and what is still more, he was a   sincere Christian. Such was the meekness of his manners his simple unaffected goodness, that aided by his erudition, his in fluence on his family in guiding their faith, was such as might be expected. His only daughter married a gentleman about 17 years ago of good family, who settled with his wife and father in law in Argyle, in a rich vale of that otherwise ...
