A- ENGLISH .EXTRACTS - (FRObn THE EXAMINER OF MARCH 19, 1826.) TaE Courier is eulogizing Mr. Peel for adoptinig what fr* is essentially the philosophy of Bentham-for prosecuting lg the course lately followed by Romilly-and for doing fg what, in other hands, would have been denounced as a ef trampling on the most venerable forms and bulwarks of ed our law--a setting at defiance the whole accumulated e. wisdom of our ancestors. But no matter : whether en Mr. Peel has forgotten Romilly, who united the sterner iul virtues of ancient Rome with the milder philanthropy to of modern times, or whether the Courier be stultified or consistent, the good to the country, to the race, is done. )y Anti we laud him by whom it is now effected-we hail )o the times in which it has been accomplished.--Scotsman. to THE subscription for the children of the late General. u- Foy, and the erection of a monument to his memory, !r. amounts to 937,247 fr. 57 cents.-(about 38,0001.)

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
WE are much gratified in being able to state, that Mr. Earle, the Artist, has at length succeeded in producing several excellent' specimens .in Lithography. Among them, is a representation of the well-known Native Chief .,?,of Sidney, Bungaree, which, we understand; is intended for sale, and, as usual with Mr. Earle, at a very'low price. As a first attemnpt of the kind in the Colony, it has been dedicated to General Darling. The likeness is faithful --and, considering .the difficulties. Mr. Earle ,has had to contend with, great credit is due to that gentleman, THEI beautiful Art of Lithography, was invented by Alvis Senefelder, a German, bred an Engraver, but too .poor to, follow his profession, he determined to put into practice, 'an idea he had conceived, that stone, by a pecu liar process, might be made a substitute for copper. After many experiments, and considerable time had been expended, rthis meritorious- man succeedeld;--thus ac q*uiring. the honour of having invented an Ar...

SUPREME CIVIL COURT. MONDAY, AUGUST 7, 1826. LOWE v. DANGAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
SUPREME. CIVIL COURT. MONDAY, AUGUST 7, 1826. &nbsp; LOWE v. DANGAR. THE plaintiff in this case, a magistrate of the terri tory, residing at Bringelly, sought to recover damages from the defendant, an old officer attached to the survey or-general's office, but resident at Newcastle, for an alleged lible, contained in a letter published in the Sydney Gazette, on the 2nd of January last, addressed to the Editor, and signed " JOHN BULL." The damages were laid at 400l. MR. WENTWORTH stated the case for the plaintiff; the learned gentleman observed, that the declaration con tained two counts, in which the averments were not set forth continuously, but selected from passages in the letter complained of. When he came to the naked facts of the case, he would shew that the defendant had pro pagated reports of the most injurious and calumnious nature. The plaintiff was a magistrate of some years standing, and of conduct which had never yet attracted the animadversion of the world, but...
UP-COUNTRY POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
'UP-COUNTRY POLICE. AUGUST 3.-ANN BUKINSHAW, a free woman, com plained of one John Jones, who then stood, ini proper person, before the Court. The nature of the case was briefly this: Mrs. B. having made use of some very en dearing expressions to John, who did not seem to relish her affectionate blandishments, by way of return, struck the complainant across the mouth. This constituted the charge. The defendant did not deny the assault, but justified; saying, that the name of Mlrs. B. was enough for hini ; that he did not wish to be polluted by the close connexion complainant had derived between her hand and his mouth.--Reprimanded and discharged. SARAH STOKES, a prisoner, the unfortunate rib of one Smart, also one of his Majesty,s servants, appeared, charged by one Euphemia Howarth, with " pocketing" a pair of tumblers from her shop.-Remanded for a Bench.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
TO CORRESPONDENTS: OSCAVATAS' letter on "sly grog &nbsp; Shops," goes merely, to say in general, that they, exist, and &nbsp; that they are receptacles for vice. These are two, truisms— consequently not worthy of insertion. The remedy he pro- poses, namely, a vigilant and pure constabulary, is also an old proposal, not more worthy of insertion ; for it is impossi- ble to pay a whole constabulary so well, as to place them above the bribes of brothel-keepers and fencing-houses. The only remedies are, throwing open the trade of spirits to all that choose to sell them, provided none be drunk except standing at the counter—and the old-fashioned remedy of indicting bad houses. The same reasons which prevent peo- ple from indicting a house of ill fame, will operate against all other remedies. .JV.' L. C's entertaining production, hus been laid out for the press the two last weeks, but circumstances have prevented its insertion. It will be sure to .procure insertion in our c...
PRESENTMENT OF THE SYDNEY GRAND JURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
PRESENTMENT OF THE SYDNEY GRAND JURY. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE Grand Jury of our Sovereign Lord the King present,--that in the discharge of' their various and important duties they visited the County Gaol and Floating Prison, both of which they found in a progres- sive state of improvement. No complaints were pre- ferred in either prison,with the exception of a want of sufficient clothing by a few of the convicts in the Gaol, and the case of one individual in the latter prison named Patrick Gray, into the merit of whose complaint, (viz. fine and imprisonment) the Grand Jury recommend en quiry. The Grand Jury have again to advert to the delay which in many instances exists in forwarding prisoners to the respective penal settlements, some of whom have been sentenced upwards of twelve months. THE Grand Jury regret to have cause again to present &nbsp; the great nuisance arising from the impure state of the Water contained in the Tanks and generally used by the Inhabita...
JOHN CONNELL, ESQ. FOREMAN OF THE GRAND JURY. George Street, 8th of August, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
JOHN CONNELL, ,Esq. FOREMAN OF THE GRAND JURY. George Street, 8th of August, 1826.. SIR, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE stream which supplies the tanks runs at the back of my house. When the rain commences, the privies and slaughter-house drains begin to disgorge into it their contents---when washed out by the rain, the subsequent showers cause the stream to become more pure. But the tanks in the interim receive the sediment. The bot- toms, on being cleaned out, would be found to consist of human ordure, blood, &c. &c. On these lees rests the water drunk by the gaol inmates, and by some of the in- habitants;. and the result sooner or later will be, that some dire pestilence will visit this town. The Tanks ought to be closed in, to prevent people from using the water for culinary purposes. Until water be brought in from a distance, very deep wells, of from twelve to twenty feet in diameter, to be worked by prisoners, might be dug in di...
SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 August 1826
SYDNEY MARKETS. A GLOOM pervaded the Market yesterday, arising from the continued and increasing depression throughout every branch &nbsp; of dealing. Wheat of an ordinary quality was abundant, but bidders were not to be found, and the sales effected were less than we remember ever to have noticed. Maize was not so plentiful, but averaged nearly as last week. No Barley was brought to Market. Scarcely any business was done in the Cattle Market; Eight Working Bullocks only were sold, which fetched a fair price; and 2 Horses.

Extract from the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 18 August 1826
Extract fronm the Observer. CRowDbn v. AusTiN.--TaIs was an action to recover the value of a horse purchased by the defendant at a pub lic auction at Aldridge's Repository. The defence was that a groom, in the service of the plaintiff, had attended, on his behalf, and had bid for the horse, by which he raised its value, and the defendant, was deceived. The plaintiff, on proof of this, was non-suited, the Lord Chief Justice considering that the highest bidder, accord ing to the conditions of sale, meant the highest bona fide bidder.--Mr Serjeant Wilde now moved to set aside this nonsuit, on the ground, that, as it was generally under stood a man attended sales of property on behalf of the owner, to prevent the property going at much less than its real value, no fraud, not even of a legal kind, could be said to have been committed; and he further observed, that the defendant being a horse-dealer, it was improbable that he should have been deceived by the opinion of another person. The...

Theology, Ethics, Religious Intelligence, &c. &c. To the Editor of the MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 18 August 1826
To the Editor of the MONITOR. . THERE cannot be a more desirable object than that of endeavouring to effect a moral change in the habits of the vicious, even whilst suffering.the just punishment of their crimes; nor a more detestable feeling than that of vaunting ourselves, in consequence of not being under similar circumnstances, and looking down with contempt on those who are inder the vengeance of the law, with. out a wish to reclaim them, rather than benefit ourselves by their continuance in that state of slavery the conse quence of their. outrages oh civil society. But, it is much to be feared, that our English feelings of humanity become blunted, and sympathy, too often, is absorbed in selfishness, through our being accustomed to scenes of punishment; and that a few years residence in this co . lony, changes our views and sentiments as much as a re. sidence in the West Indies does those perpons who were most abhorrent of the system of slavery, when out of its pestilential infl...

?IIE natives of New Holl0and have been represented as peculiarly inferior in intellect to all other savage tribes.--After 14 years acquaintance with these. people,. we positivelydeny any peculiar mental deficiency. The laziness of their natures we admit, and their consequent carelessness about the future. This we account for-by the circumstance of food, and clothing, and fuel, being in plenty during our mild winter. In short, the voluptu ousness of our cliiiate, and not deficiency of intellect, accounts for the want of economy and forecast among the tribes of New South Wales. (ED.)

ORIGINAL POETRY, TO A MOSS ROSE. "Beauty when unadorned, 4c. arc." THE angel of sweet flowers, one day, Beneath a Rose-tree sleeping lay That Spirit to whose charge is given, To bathe young briars in dew from Heav'n. Awaking from his light repose, The Angel whisper'd to the rose "' O fondest object of my care ! " Still fairest found, where all are fair- ' For the sweet shade thou'st given to me, ",Ask what thou wilt-'tis granted thee !" ".Then," said'the'rose, with deepen'd glow, a On me ANOTHER grace bestow -" The Spirit 1Saused-in sileat thought :What grace was there, the flower had not ? 'Twas but a moment-o'er the rose A vail of moss the angel throws ! And, robed in natures' simplest weed, Co~uld there a flower .that rose exceed ? Sydney, Aug. 13th, 1826. . A. PI

To the EDmITO of the MONiToR. Sta,, TnB shop-keeper, dealer, pedlar, or merchant, all re quire a few hours pleasure, after the toils of a hot day; the mechanic too who earns his 7s. 6d. per day, could spare two shillings for an evenings amusement at a theatre once a-week, in lieu of getting drunk in the streets, and paying the police-office five shillings; the sight of Mr Rossi, is not very pleasant to an honest trades .man, who by chance got a cup too much. The poor or midling class of people in this colony, have no amuse ment whatever, unless drinking, if amusement. Ano ther extravagant.way of entertainment prevails, for the want of a theatre, that is, going on horse-back on Sun days, to the half-way house, or in a chaise, which costs not less than ten or fifteen shillings, whereas in a theatre 'some part of the week, the husband may take his wife and himself for about four shillings the two. The boxes 'as in all theatres, are set apart for the great folks, the pit .for the midlin...
