TO MY PARISHIONERS OF ST. PETER'S. My Brethren-During the hours of illness, and in anticipation of the summons that must shortly call me from you, I have employed my- self, after other necessary duties, in revising a few sermons to form a volume at my death for distribution among my friends and yourselves. However weak and unequal to my wishes, they may perhaps acquire a supervenient authority and influence from the solemnity of the grave; at all events, they will remain a memorial, if not of my powers, yet of my un- ceasing and affectionate zoal for your eternal welfare. In the mean time, the reception of the one now printed at the request of his Honor Mr. Justice Burton will enable me to judge how far the révisai of the rest may prove worthy of my care, or your acceptance. Your affectionate pastor and brother in Christ, G. K. RUSDEN. Copies of the Assize Sermon may be had of Mr. Lipscomb, West Maitland ; of Mr. Mutlow, East Maitland ; at Newcastle and Sydney. 362 LIST of ADDITIONA...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

TO CORRESPONDENTS. The picture drawn by, "CENSORIUS" is over- coloured. We cannotl deny that there is some foundation for his strong and sweeping cen- sure, but we think the publication of his letter would lead to a harsh and unjust estimate of the general character of our commercial community. "COLUMBIA."-We cannot avail ourselves of our correspondent's article, which is more suitable for a literary journal .than a news- paper.

THE MAITLAND MERCURY. SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

THE MAITLAND MERCURY, SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1843. We hope our friends of the Hunter River Society have observed a paper on the cultivation of the olive which appears in a recent number of the Herald. On our minds, the perusal of that paper impressed more deeply the conviction, that the time is come when a great alteration should be made in the tenant system of this colony. In every country short leases are equally prejudicial to the tenant and the landlord ; but here their effects upon the habits and character of the tenantry-are injurious in the highest degree, and they present an insurmountable obstacle to the prospect of accomplishing any permanent improve- ment in the soil. That class of plants which ripen, yield their return, and die within twelve months after the seed is committed to the earth, are not the best suited to our climate, nor the best calcu- lated to brave the vicissitudes of our uncertain seasons; and before wc can attain to a maximum in production we must cultivate al...

SAVINGS BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

SAVINGS BANK. There was a very sharp run upon the Savings Bank in Sydney on Monday and Tuesday last, and upwards of £12,000 was paid out on Monday. The run is attributed to various causes, but as far as can be ascertained the principal one ap- pears to have been a report that the Governor had been to the bank inspecting the securities, many of which he pronounced to be valueless ; but this report is said by the Herald to be wholly without foundation. Again, the panic has been ascribed by some to the agency of certain di- rectors of the Bank of Australia, who it is said wished to be revenged on Mr. Miller, the ac- countant of the Savings Bank, for having urged, at a meeting of the proprietors of the former bank, that the mortgages it held should be foreclosed, and its debtors subjected to the screw press ; and, from the very silly tone which has been adopted towards Mr. Miller by the Australian, there would appear to be some foundation for this surmise. It is also stated that the mos...

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

SYDNEY NEWS. A paragraph will be found in our fourth page extracted from the Sydney Morning Herald re- lative to the Sydney Banking Company, in reference to which Mr. Lord has addressed to the editors of that journal the following letter : -" GENTLEMEN-I am sorry to percieve that you have inconsiderately allowed a paragraph to appear in your paper of this morning, tending to asperse my integrity. I cannot sit silent under the imputation it conveys, and therefore beg that public opinion may be suspended until the affairs of the Sydney Banking Company are fully investigated and understood.-I remain, gentlemen, your most obedient servant, Thomas Lord." Confidence in the Sydney Bank is in a great measure restored. There was a slight run on Tuesday on the Bank of New South Wales, but there appears to exist no ground for apprehension as it regards this establishment. It is currently reported in town that Mr. Brenan has been dismissed from his situation both as police magistrate and corone...

UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

UNITED STATES. Intelligence has been received from the United States to the 10th December. We ex- tract the following from the Sydney Morning Herald of Monday last. The slavery question was likely to engage a large share of attention in the approaching session of Congress. The legislature of Vermont had unanimously passed a series of resolutions, and transmitted them to Washington, to be laid by their representatives before Congress ; the substance of which was-That, as the repre- sentatives of Vermont, they protested against the admission into the Union of any state whose constitution tolerated domestic slavery, or the annexation of Texas or any other terri- tory in which slavery exists ; that they believed Congress had the power, by the constitution of   the United States, to abolish slavery and the slave trade in the district of Columbia, and in the territory of the United States, and that, if   it refused to abolish slavery in Columbia, the seat of gene...

LITERARY NOTICE. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] Assize Sermon, preached at St. Peter's Church, Maitland, on the 19th March, 1843. By the Rev. G. K. Rusden, A.M. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser — 6 May 1843

"LITERARY NOTICE. [FROM A CORRESONDENT.]     Assize Sermon, preached at St. Peter's Church,   Maitland, on the 19th March, 1843. By the Rev Or. K. Rusden, A.M. At a time when the press is teeming with publications that set forth the differences that distract the Christian church, it is truly re- freshing to perceive that there are certain great   Catholic principles in the religion of the Saviour which have never yet been called in question. The duties of Christian charity and forbearance, which all profess in theory, though many deny them in practice, form the subject of Mr. Rusden's discourse. Such topics cannot be too frequently represented to, or too forcibly im- pressed upon the attention of us all. It was these duties, combined -with the still more   sublime and mysterious doctrines of our faith, which, operating upon the mind of Europe for centuries, produced that state of civilisation for   which C...

THE OLIVE TREE.

After enumerating the uses to   which the wood, oil, and fruit of this tree were applied by the ancients, and stating that it is at present cultivated to a great extent in Palestine, Syria, Attica, Candia, and all the islands of the Archipelago, and Egean Sea, in the Ionian islands, Italy, Sicily, Spain, and the south of France, he proceeds to describe the method'of extracting the oil : " The machine now generally employed for the crushing (he says) is an edge stone mill, driven round by a horse or other power ; after which *An allusion to the cross at baptism.   Hie mass is put into bags of grass or bulrush, and subjected to the action of a screw press, being laid one above anothen to the number of eighteen, and the oil being receive...
