BRANDING WILD CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 2 April 1835
BRANDING WILD CATTLE. WE had only been seated for a few weeks in our editorial chair, when our overseer, an experienced bush-ranger, told us there, were: certain wild cattle belonging to the, Colonial Press,. running at large in and around Sydney, which. he thought we had as good a right to brand .as any body else in the colony. We hesitated, for some time,. alleging that the cattle might be' private property, and that we might therefore be'taken up, if we put our brand upon' them,' for cattle stealing; but the overseer having assured us that they were not private but public property, and that every person connected with the Press had as good a right to brand them-as he had. to hunt kangaroos, more especially as they were of no use to the public in their present wild state, we determined to take our overseer's advice for once, and accordingly gave him the requisite directions for the preparation of a brand, together'with the other' apparatus necessary on such occasions. Every thing ...

Select Poetry. THE HISTORY OF A LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 2 April 1835
ýdeet Waret~p. THE HISTORY OF A LIFE.' BY BARRY CORNWALL . DAY dawn'd. Within a curtain'd room, Fill'd,to faintness, with perfume, A lady lay, at point of doom. ,Day closed. A child had seen the light: But for the lady, fair and bright, She rested in undreaming night! Springs camie. The lady's grave was green, And, near it, often-times was seen A gentle boy, with thoughtful mien. :Years fled. He wore a manly face, And struggled in theworld's rough race, And won, at last, a lofty place. And then-he died ! .. Behold, before ye, Humanity's poor sum and story;-.. Life,--Death,--and (all that is of ) Glory.
English Extracts. THE NEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 2 April 1835
THE NEW MINISTRY. - 'Tia'publicdhias hardly recovered from the surprise and inLredulity with 'which it first received' the.,intel-' ligence of the dissolution, of Lord Melbourne's .go vernment. That the liberal ministry has. been re moved, that it is designed to replace' it by Tory suc cassors, are matters of ludicrous certainty. In due: and decorous submission to the undoubted legality, of this exercise of his Majesty's prerogative, his faithful4 people are left to exercise. their'constitutional privi ege of wonder. The various. rumours 'of the mode in which this strange exertion of the Royal will was ; made, or of the motives by, which: it was determinied,; •fford no solution of the mystery.; No. explanhation of it is to be found'in events which are as yet known to the public. We confess that: the opportiunity which has beeni selected for. this manoeuvre has been chosen withi some .skill. It is uiseless" to'deniythat the retiring. ministry is not'for the moment suppoited by, that ...

'TO THE EDITOR OF' THE COLONIST. Sit,-As I am sure that whatever, is intended f'.or the public good, will meet with your ap proval, I beg leave to send you a case. of poi soning by laudanum, as mentioned .by Sir Astley Cooper, in his valuable lectures. Within" the last four months, there have been several cases of the same nature mentioned in the jour nals, as having occurred in Sydney and its neigh= bourhood, and since, in those cases the stomach pump, and sulphate of zinc had failed to relieve,, since too, such cases are likely to be of no un frequent occurrence, owing to the continual flow of female emigration to these shores,'and. to the 'carelessness of the apothecaries, and as it appears that T)r. Marcet's treatment is either unknown, or if known, is never put in practice; I think the same will not only be interesting to the rmedical men in general, but may also serve,as a' guide in some such cases, wheire rio medical man .may be near.

We extract two or three passa ges from the mover and seconder of the resolution: "They have come from a land which the citizens of this country respect and esteem-from a land which they still honour and love as their father-land. They have come from a land of philosophy and poetry, of eloquence and freedom-from a land where religion sheds its benign blessings abroad. They have come from a land eminent' in the cause of liberty-a land great' in commerce and prosperity-from a land distinguished above all coeval nations of the earth.

S. PROJECTED DEPARTURES. Maria, for Hobart Town, the 11th instant; Craigievar, for Loudon, and Cabotia, for Liverpool, the 12th instant. The Red Rover put back on the morning :of Thiiday last, in consequence of her top-sides being leaky from her lying so.long in port, but having had about thirty .caulkers at work since she came in, she resumed her voyage to Lon lon on Monday. We regret to learn that the new 'schooner :built at Port Macquarie, as a trader; between that port and Sydney, was capsized while coming over the bar, on her first trip to this place. There were upwards of twenty persons on board at the time, but from the immediate assistance rendered by the boats from the shore, all were saved except one child, who was unfortunately drowned. .
