THE REV.` MR. CAR?IVCHAEL- AND THE AUSTRALIAN COLLEGE.'? HAINGo had occasion to visit a respectable settler at a considerable distance in the interior, within the last few' weeks, we were not a little surprised at having 'a paper in the form of a circular by the gentleman whose name stands at the head of this article placed in :our hands., Its object was to detail the plan and principles of the private boarding and day-school he has recently commenced on the race-course, and dignified, in the usual London style, with a high-sounding appellation. With this, however, we have nothing whatever to do; nay, as far as the school in question shall prove instrumental in promoting the interests of education in this territory, we shall uiifeignedly' rejoice in its "prosperity, not withstanding the unfavourable opinion" we have lately been constrained to form oi the principles and practice'of its founder.
