EDITORIAL TRICKERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 March 1835

EDITORIAL TRICKERY. WE seldom trouble ourselves about any thing'in The Australian newspaper, which indeed' we very rarely look: at; but our attention having been' particularly directed by a friend to an article in a late number of that paper, purporting to be a communication to the editor from his Corres pondent in London, we accordingly glanced at it, but had not read a single paragraph till we as certained, from. the strongest internal evidence, that it had been writteni'in Sydney, and that our worthy contemporaries, John. Doe and Richard Roe, had consequently no correspondent, as far as that article was concerned, beyond the Heads of Port Jackson. ' Indeed, we could stake our lite rary reputation on this assertion; and in the event of our contemporaries producing any thing like the London, or even the Colonial post-mark, 'on a paper containing the manuscript of the article in question, we should be willing, in testimony of our ascertained and proved literary fallibility, to sign ...

The Statistical Society of London was instituted at the suggesticn of the General Committee of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, of whose interesting proceedings; as contained in ' teir recently published.Report for 1833,, we have given our readers some account in our last three numbers, in the hope of exciting a spirit for scientific investigation in this colony.

Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 March 1835

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST; Srn,-I was sorry to perceive that you had ac cused the up-country, settlers in your last number of a.want of hospitality, and 'that yQu seem to represent them as living in the lowest state of barbarism, eating nothing but damliers and lying on the bare ground. I can assure you that the" case is very different from what you represent it, in both particulars. We are. remarkably hos pitable, ruinously so in some cases, and there is really something like the rudiments of civilization and refinement amongst us, notwithstanding, all. you say about our dampers and our shake-downs in the bush.. But supposing you were a settler yourself, Mr. Editor, and had got a good sheep run adjoining your farm, would you like to. show it to every person that might present 'him self at your door in the form of a newly arrived emigrant? I think not. It is human nature to keep such a secret: to one's owns self; and leave the new .settler to, find a .suitable location else wher...

TO TILE, EDITOR. OF THE COLONIST. Mn: EDITro.---If the following remarks on the Medical profession be considered by, you as worthy of insertion in your valuable journal, you will oblige a member of the said profession by inserting the same. There cannot, I think, be a profession of more importance to the public weal than the Medical, when placed in proper. hands ; nor can there he one more detriinental to the. same, when placed in the hands of quacks, or unqualified pretenders. Though the latter is not the: case as yet in the colony,'the profession at present is certainly-in a most degraded state, as all must observe whP .have any interest in it; this: is the more to be lamented since it does 'not procee'd from the want of the requisite qualifications on the part of the medical men, but from a jealousy Which'has long existed, and does still exist among the mem bers themselves. The 'medical men in New South .Wales may' be divided into three classes, 1. Those in the service of governm...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 March 1835

TO THE EDITOR OF iTHE COLONIST. Sin,--I must beg of you to insert a few lines with respect to the letter of Mr. Beilby, on the subject of the Layton,, which appeared in your journal of the 5th instant. SMr. B. states, it was his misfortune- to b'e Su 'perintendent of that vessel; it was mine to be a passenger, doomed. to endure all the misery which could well be crowded into four weary months misery which Mr. B. as Superintendent, was im peratively bound to have mitigated to the utmost extent of his ability, and which might have been greatly diminished had he performed, as Ji'r as ie was able, the duty he had undertaken. But ,it is not to complain or givea detail of sufferings --mow thanks be to Providence happily passed away-that I am induced to trespass upon your columns. It seems it was not enough that very many persons, in every sense as respectable as TVIr. Beilby, should be herded together among characters the vilest conceivable, and experience in other respects sufferings wel...

Domestic Intelligence. THE RECENT IMPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 March 1835

THE RECENT IMPORTATION. TWE have already had occasion, to mention the recent arrival of two hundred 'and fifty additional female emigrants per the Dutchess of Northum berland,, and to express our opinion that the fe males by that vessel constitute the best importa tion of the kind we have had since the formation of the " London Female Emigration Board. They: were. all selected in the cities of Dublin and Cork, by a Committee of philanthropic per sons residing in these cities, and they have had the special good fortune to come out in a vessel commanded by a Captain of honourable princi ple and virtuous practice, and under the super intendence of a medical getitleman who, in addi tion to the use of the requisite means for the preser vation oftheir health during the passage, did every thing in his power to promote their moral and spiritual welfare. Indeed, Captain Jobling and Dr. Eckford deserve the thanks of every friend of the' colony, . for the manner in which they have discharged t...

SABBATH PROFANATION A JOINT STOCK SPECULATION.

We were not quite certain at the time whether this announcement was intended to include the " Lord's Day," the "' Christian Sabbath," ornot, for 'it did occur to us that the " Australian Steam Conveyance Company" might possibly consider Sunday, as the Lawyers do, as a "non dies," that is, no day at all, and might consequently mean Monday as the fourth of the four. We confess, indeed, we were sufficiently sceptical as* -to the christianity of the Company, and suffici-' ently willing to believe in their entire devoted ness to the pursuit of gain, to' be 'under' serious apprehensions as 'to ;the. likelihood if oui' being able to .ave their reputation by this point cf law; a?nd sorry:-we are to acknowledge that these ap iriehensions :haveobnly been too well fou...
