Original Correspondence. THE LAND FUND. THE CONTEMPLATED BREACH OF FAITH-SIR GEORGE GIPPS' ADMISSION, &c. &c. &c. TO THE EDITOR OF THE Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. Sydney, 30th October, 1838. Sza;-At the last meeting of the Le'giv lative Council, Sir George Gipps, in answer to an inquiry made by Sir John'Jamison, in his place in Council, relative to the future appropiation of the Land Fund, gave a very lengthy explanation of the views now entertained by the present Secretary for the Colonies on this subject. The explanation offered by Sir George proves but too clearly, how little faith is to be placed in the promises of Government servants after their secession from office, whenever other servants of the same Government who take the berths of the former, find it to their interest, and that of their friends, (which in nine cases out of ten, is one and the same thing.) to tear asunder the bonds of faith existing between the sovereign and the people...

Reservoirs of Water by Embankment. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 7 November 1838

Reservoirs of Water by Emban?k anent. Water has become so precious in all pars of :he co!ony where rivers do not How ( for hluf the creek ponds of the Co lonv ire dried up ; and some rivers, so called are now dried up, save a pond here, and another there; the intervals between each being from one to five miles) that any tniorination laid before our graziers to en able themr to make reservoirs, will be read with interest. At the same time itis to be obser'ed, that embanking is an opera tioti which can only be performed .when the ground is misl ; that is, when the want of water is not felt with such severity as to cause our graziers to set about so laborious tedious and expensive an opera tion as embanking. They naturally " put tff"'the operation when water is not wanted; when wanted, it cannot be performed. This doubtless is the reason, why the re servoir constructed with such admnirable effect by tle late Mr. Thomas Rose of Appin ( a very old settller, and universally re.spected) ha...
