PROGRESS OF FINE WOOLS IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

-PR(MJ]ESS OF FINE WOOLS IN EUROPE. - IN the year 1765, the (then) Elector of Saxony, received 'from Spain 105 rams and 116 ewes, selected under peculiarly favourable circumstances, and with particular care, from the t Escurial, Infantido, and Guadaloupe flocks; and again in, e 1778, 92 (two year old) ewes, with two lambs, and one old r ram. This is the foundation of the present breed of Saxon - Jnefleeced sheep, which in quality and weight of their fleece, y in size of their carcase, and in a greater capability of being= fattened, at presentgreatly surpass their origin. They were at first kept apart on a domain of the crown, (Slope)y and,: tho' :in the beginning more than once in danger of being totally destroyed by fatal diseases; they have increased so as r to be at present found of pure blood on 18 domains, and about 70 noblemen's estates, in and about Saxoniy; 7,000 rams and 4,00 ewes having been successively sold in the. course of the first 40 years, from the royal original fl...

Extracts from the Times of March 20th. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

Extracts from the Times of March 2Oth. THE French papers of Thursday and Friday, which arrived in the course of yesterday, contain no news of the slightest importance. LETTERS have been received from Petersburgh, dated the 3d instant, which state facts of some importance. It appears that the Emperor NICHOLAS has submitted to the Senate various documents relative to the late conspiracy, to the situation of the Russian army, and to his position with respect to the Ottoman Porte, with a request to the Senate to advise his Imperial Majesty ih what manner he ought to act. It has never been usual with that body, we believe, on previous occasions, to testify any other disposition than that of strict confor- mity to the Imperial will, and their advice, if they have really adhered to that course now, will be deemed not a little extraordinary. They are understood to have protested in the strongest manner against any interfer ence on the part of the Emperor in the contest between the Greeks an...

SUPREME CRIMINAL COURT. FRIDAY, JULY 28th. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

SUPREME CRIMINAL COURT. FRIDAY, JULY 98th. CHARLES BUTLER of Portland Head, Settler, a prisoner   of the Crown assigned to the service of his wife, was indicted for the wilful murder of Catherine Collins, other- wise Kitty Carman, at the Hawkesbury, a lodger in the same house, on the 13th of May last. This was a case depending wholly on circumstantial evidence, and the facts as deduced therefrom-appeared as follows:-The prisoner had on a past time cohabited with the deceased -on the day of her death they had proceeded up the river Hawkesbury to the house of Summers, a Settler at Portland Head, where they refreshed,-the sum of four dollars had been paid to her by Summers, and they left the dwelling of the latter together. On the return of the prisoner to his home, he stated, that the deceased having occasion to obtain a signature to a memorial at Doyle's Point, he had put her ashore at that place. No suspicion was excited at the time, and all passed on quiet till a re- p...

AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR JULY. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR JULY. THE past month has been particularly unfavourable to the prosecution of field labour-a protracted drought rendered the ground unusually hard and unfit for tillage,. and Agricultural pursuits were for a time- almost at a stand-still. Some refreshing showers towards the close of the month partially relieved this suspension, but they were of so temporary a nature that little benefit beyond' refreshing vegetation accrued from them. Severe frosts. throughout July; and which still continue, nipped much. of the young grain, especially Spring Barley, and the late crops of Wheat-the former is a tender plant and conse quently more subjected to injury from cold. Oats have received little or no. damage. Ploughing, which has been greatly retarded, is now resuming with all alacrity the weather admits of, to prepare the ground for Wheat and Barley. Wheat has a .healthy appearance about the Hawkesbury and Nepean, and good. crops are anticipated. Towards Appin.and the C...

THE MONITOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

THE MONITOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1826. THE Gazette of the 26th instant makes the following report:-   "Mary Kane or Kenneday, a free woman (who having de serted her husband, lives in a state of adultery with another man, keeping a house of ill fame,) appeared under summonses, to answer for harbouring Sophia Frazier and James Higgins, two prisoners of the crown tippling. Bernard Crummy, constable, deposed to his going to the accused's house, where he found the two prisoners of the crown; the woman Frazier was intoxicated and sitting on the side of a bed with Higgins; there was a tumbler with about half a pint of spirits in it, and a glass before them on the table. He took them in charge and confined them. Benja min Ratty, constable, corroborated the above on oath. The Bench (notwithstanding the case being clearly proved, and the accused being so frequently brought forward for simi lar offences,) in consideration of her poverty, and having a large family, admonished her seve...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

Experienced Settlers report his winter to be the   coldest ever remembered. The Thermometer until eight 'o'clock in the morning on the South Creek is often as low as 25. This is the temperament of Argyle and West Bathurst in Winter. At the latter districts the weather has been also unusually severe. We sincerely hope the rain which fell at the full of the moon has extended through all the settled Colony to permit the plough to resume its labours. . A detachment of the New-South Wales Veteran Corps is'destined to proceed to Hobart Town, per the fJhni IBarry, ·in the course of the ensuing week. The Ship takes in her cargo at the Derwent. We are sorry to learn that some misunderstanding has arisen between the Settlers at the Five Islands and the Military lately gone down. 'nTHE inhabitants of George-street who reside near the posnd, are compelled continually to witness scenes, ap palling to humanity, the exhibition of. poor starved ani-:, mrals confined within its limits f...

To the Editor of the MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

To the Editor of the MONITOR.   THE subject of the Drama has been brought before the public on more than one occasion, through the medium of a contemporary. Eighteen months ago, it was stated that a number of persons were willing to come forward and buy shares to effect the formation of a regular Theatrical establish- ment, but hitherto all has been mere words. A public spirited individual has, however, by " actions, not words," evinced his anxiety to contribute to the entertainment of his fellow ci- tizens and their families, by affording them a source of rational recreation: but it would be in the highest degree illiberal if we (who expect to share the gratification and amusement which the erection of a Theatre would be likely to produce,) allow one individual to proceed at his own risk and expense, unassisted, and be found backward in contributing our mite towards placing such an establishment on a respectable footing. At the last Concert Meeting the subject was actu...

DISTRESS IN SPITALFIELDS.-- "A poor and constant reader" writes to us as follows-: " I call to your notice the distress in Spitalfields, a sample of it may be seen in the starving and ragged rising generation, in front of St. Mary's Chapel, Moorfields, about a quarter before Eleven o'clock on Sunday morning next-(this day). Lately, the father of one of the children died for want; and when the clergyman,the Rev. Mr. LAw, went to administer to him the sacrament, he lay on the boards, his wife and four children in the same room -not any thing to eat--in great distress."

SUPREME CIVIL COURT. SATURDAY, JULY 30th. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 August 1826

SUPREME CIVIL COURT.     SATURDAY, JULY 30th. KLENSENDORLFFE V. OAKES.--This was an action for malicious prosecution brought by Mr. William Klensendorlffe, innkeeper of Myrtle Creek, against Francis Oakes, of Parra matta, to which the defendant pleaded not guilty. Damages were laid at 1000l. (Mr. Rowe stated the case for the plaintiff.) From the voluminous and complicated evidence adduced, the following history of the case may be gathered. In June, 1825, the plaintiff attended an auction of unclaimed cattle in the Public Pound, at Bung Bung. There were near one hundred head within the pound, of which Mr. Klensendorlffe purchased three. When the barrier or gate was removed to allow plain tiff's bullocks to pass, a fourth rushed out and joined the others. After many fruitless endeavours to drive it back they were compelled to let it go with the three to the plain tiff's farm at Myrtle Creek. On arrival there, the drivers were not able to get them within an en...

PROGRESS OF FINE WOOLS IN EUROPE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826

PROGRESS OF FINE WOOLS, IN EUROPE. r (Continued from our last.) As for Bavaria, WYurtemberg, and Baden, they are -even behind Austria; for thbugh in 1789, the Margrave of Ans bach, imported 122 Spanish rainms and ewes, in 1786, the (then) Duke of Wartemberg 140 rams, and-about the same time the (then) Margrave of Baden 46 rams and 83 ewes from Spain, and 74 ewes from Rousillon, yet the wool in these parts of Germany still remain so harsh, as to be nearly excluded from the English market. Now the success of Saxony and the failure, (comparatively speaking) of the'other'German states, though it may in part, and no doubt truly be ascribed to the influence of pasture and climate, is by all who have investigated the subject more closely, generally traced to this as the fundamental cause; that the original royal Saxon flock at Stolpe, (from which all improvement in the Saxon breed of sheep has been derived,) was selected from the best Spanish flocks with equal judgment and success, while t...

The- fact is, that when .a 'man's leg is to be cut off, although a smairt operator will do it with less pain than a country barber-surgeon,. still amputation is an appalling, thing. The leg must be given up. So with our speculators in Sydney. The support the bank has received from the public, (and we trust will receive,) has saved it from bankruptcy. Still, it is pledged to decrease its responsibilities, and to in crease its means. The reduction was not felt by the discounters the. first week, but now it begins to be felt severely. But the bone is not yet touched, and the ago nizing saw not yet applied. Let us look to its applica tion with,fortitude, and: in the mean time administer the patient such...
