To the EDITOR of the MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 18 August 1826

To the EdITOR of the MONIToR. SIR, IT may be interesting to some of your readers to learn, that the woman who escaped from the wreck of the Trial brig on this coast, to-the Northward of Port Mac quarie, is still, or very recently in being, sojourning with a tribe of Aboriginal natives, together with her daughter now about 12 or 13 years old. SIE was married (possessed) by one of the tribe, by whom she has had two children, one of either sex, the male child according to * custom, was put to death, the female lives, she acts as "corrar-gee," or midwife, 'to the matrons of the tribe, and is respected by them accord ingly; they are however so jealous lest she should see a white man, and be thereby induced to leave them, that they have madi boori (or kill'd) three white men, suppos ed to be in search of her. Her daughter, (the one wrecked with her,) adds my informant, will be " wienna" (or marriageable) next spring. The native from whom I received the above account, belongs to .a tribe t...

~I To TOHE EDITOR O Tel S?nDHSr GAZUTTE, Sydney Free Grammar School, 14th August, 18i6. SIR, WunI the son Of my 61d friend, the Vicar of WVake field, proposed himself to the principal of a Flemish Uuniversity, as a professor of the Greek language, and offered unequivocal pyoofs of his ability, Mynheer oli served to him ;--" Look at me, young man;-I eat well; " -I drink well;-- sleep well ;-I possess a large in.

Such, Mr. Editor, is your mode of appreciating the value of classical learning; and such is too frequently the folly of many others, in undervaluing what they do Snot possess. Were any one of our scholastic establish mneats in this colony, confined in its object to the soie acquisition of the dead languages, your dogma might rest on a firmer basis, than a foundation of sand: but, when it is well known, that the attainment of a know. ledge of arithmetic, geograp...

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. CHURCH RATES IN IRELAND. HOUSE OF COMMONS, THURSDAY, FEB. 16, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 18 August 1826

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE.     CHURCH RATES IN IRELAND. HOUSE OF COMMONS, THURSDAY, FEB. 16, 1826. SIR JOHN NEWPORT rose, in pursuance of the notice which he had given, to propose a series of resolutions regarding the levy of Church Rates in Ireland. He said it was in the recollection of the house, that he had last year called their attention to the manner in which the Irish parochial rates were collected, and to the abuses   which in every part of their details was so apparent.   IN order that the house should be aware of the manner in which the power of raising sums for the uses of re- ligion was diverted from its legitimate purposes, he would state a few examples of the abusive practices which prevailed on this subject. The law had expressly provided a particular sum for the salary of parish clerk; where his attendance was only required for one day in the week his remuneration was not to exceed 10l. a year. Now, it would be fou...

THE MONITOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 18 August 1826

THE IMONITOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1826.   EXTRACT of a letter from the neighbourhood of   Bathurst West, from an Overseer to his Master. SIR., IT grieves me much to say the lambs continue to die fast, and instead of one thousand I am afraid I shall not have more than half that number. We may however consider ourselves lucky in the grand object - -by not having the breeding ewes die in a manner similar to our neighbour's. Mr. Lawson's flocks are going off fast and he will lose ten or twelve hundred. Captain King will lose seven flocks out of nine! Arkell and Nash will hardly have a sheep left. Pye's, now Armstrong's are nearly all dead. Captain Browne loses a large number. Also several other stock-holders, including government. The sheep of the latter, are dying by hundreds, and I am sorry to add your mother's and sister's. The winter is very severe and allowed by the old hands to be the most intense of any yet experienced. It surprises me how any four-legged ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 18 August 1826

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. Coounsae INQUEST.-ON Wednesday se'nnigt, a co roner's inquisition was taken before the Coroner-for the county, on view of the body of Mr. W ?. SEAWAaD, who was fonud in bed a lifeless corpse.--The Jury found a verdict of Sudden Death. The deceased, aged 30 years, was the son of an opulent dealer in the City of Cork. He lately emigrated to this colony. An affectionate wife and young family are left to deplore his irreparable loss. We understand desires to be made police magistrates are quite fashionable among our country gentlemen at this time. If fining widows '01. for giving their old servants a glass of grog, under the accusation of having :harboured bush-rangers, taking payment for the same in carriage of the justice's wheat towmarket, and not account ing for the same to the police fund, be any recommnenda tion to be made a police magistrate, we hope certain gea tlemen will succeed to such an office.

To the Editor of the Monitor.       Sir,   The few observations I have to make, I will briefly   preface with a statement of the facts which I am about to address you on.   An humble individual, I yet feel it my duty to assist the   friendless as far as in my power lies. Acting on this prin- ciple, seven years since I took under my protection two unfortunate children, one an Orphan, and but for me des- titute of a friend—and ever felt anxious to rear and educate them as my own. My circumstances for some time much   embarrassed, prevented them from receiving those benefits which might have been derived from a good school—but lately becoming improved, about a fortnight since I sent one of them to Mr. Thurston's Seminay as a Boarder at 30l. per Annum. This presumption on my part, certain Ladies; to wit, the Wife of Mr. Harper, Butcher, of George-street, and Mrs. Josephson, felt so mu...

I have long and well known this excellent poet, in private and in public life. A romantic attachment formed in carly life, for a woman old enough to be his mother, in which he was severely disappointed, and of which he was forbidden. to .speak, soured and oppressed his lofty romantic temper of mind; and, acting on an unsubdued and fanciful imagination, distempered 1by a degree of h?ereditary melancholy madness, "formed by indulgence the strange,, wayward, heterogeneous 'character he now is s."

On Friday last, the lightning fell upon and about this town. The conductor to St. James's Church, it is highly probable, saved the steeple, as the lightning ran along: it in a sheet of brilliant flame during one of the flashes.. Mr. Barker's mill was also struck. The door of the ground floor, though bolted with a strong iron bolt, was: burst open, and the bolt has not since been found. A lock was found remaining on the door, melted on one of' the edges. The stone wall was chipped so as to cause the outer stones to fall off. On the first floor, twa young men were sitting on a piece of timber, eating their din ner, with their gouges and other tools lying by their side. The lightning, (as it appeared to to them) came in at the door like a volume of flames, and knocked them down senseless. When they rose, (which they calculated they were enabled to do in two or three minutes), they opened a back door with the intention of getting on to the plat form, from whence they descended in much t...
