LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. BELL'S WEEKLY MESSENGER.—MAY 14, 1826. State of the Country as to the unemployed Poor, and inequality in Wages and Employment. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
LATEST EGISH NEWS. BELL'S. WEEKLY MESSENGER.--MAY 14, 1826. State of the Country as to the unemployed Poor, and inequality in Wages and Employment. THIs is a subject of so much importance to all of us, whe ther we consider it as affecting the wealth of the country in general, or as bearing upon the present distress of the manu facturing classes, that we would wish to call the attention of our readers to what has passed through our minds upon this subject. It is a remark of Lord Bacon, that if every one would contribute his own particular observation, and in as few words as possible, it would soon clear away the greatest impe diments to human knowledge, and remove all complexity in moral and scientific truth. The leading fault of the present. day, in writers and speakers, is the peculiar jargon of political economy. It has been introduced into this country from Scotland, but we trust is about to go out of fashion, and to return to Edinburgh, its parent school. ONE of the first circum...
To the Editor of the MONITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
To the Editor of the MONITOR. SIn, THE character and genius of a people, are, in a great measure, to be estimated by.their works of art, their public monuments and national institutions; anl the opinion of foreigners with regard to- us, iill always be formed upon these criterions, modified however, by the prejudices or prc possessions that daily intercourse give rise to. A stranger upon his first visit to this land, f'nom a view of our Banks, our Chamber of Commerce, our Courts of Law our Printing Offices, our Orphan Institutions, our Public Schools, our Societies, Benevolent, Agricultural and Philoso phical, and our Penitentiaries and other similar buildings for the reception of hundreds of British Exiles, would form a conclusion highly creditable to us as a people. IHe is asto nished at the spirit of our commercial adventurers and the extent of our mercantile speculations!-he is surprised at the independence with whieh the rights of individuals are contes ted !-hie is charmed with...

History of the Protestant Reformation continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
History of the Protestant Reformation continued. What a shocking fact, that we should have received this book from that POPE and that CATHOLIC CHURCHI, to make us believe that the first of whom is the whore of Babylon, and that the worship of the last is idolatrous and her doctrines dam nable, you. JOSHUA, and your Society for " promoting 6Chris tian Knowledge," are now, at this very moment, publishing and pushing into circulation no less than seventeen different books and tracts! 18. AFTER the death of Christ, there -was a long space of time before the gospel was put into any thing like its present shape. It was preached in several countries, and churches were established in those countries, long before the written gospel was known much of, or, at least, long before it was made use of as a guide to the Christian churches. At the end -. of "bout.. fot. hndred .years,_ the. written gospels.-were laid btfore a council of the Catholic Church, of which the PorE was the head. But, there ...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
THE MONITOR. LFRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 182G. " The Australian" linforms us of the murder by the Natives of two menl on the farm of Mr. Lethbridge on Hunter's River. . Four convict servants it :seems on being attacked, instead of acting with the courage even of women, took refuge in their beds and blankets ! Now we admit that cowýirds'have as much right to their lives as brave men ; but we must spy that when their cow ardice is such as to prevent their defending themselves with common prudence, it does not add to our pity for their death. Mrs. Ogilvie,.a lady, by going out to the same party and remonstrating with them, was neither murdered nor plundered. Now 'reader, if an English Barrister were to relate the circumstances of the late murder by the Natives of Upper Hunter's River, wonld you not imagine he would proceed to make his com ments with good English law and feeling similar to the following? "This murder, be it remembered, is in 'no '" wise to be distinguished from any other mur...
POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
*POLICE INCIDENTS. Two constables were accused of improper conduct in the discharge of what Was not their duty. It appeared that on Friday evening last, the two constables went to one Master Solomon,and asked to be accommodated with the loan of a dump, affirming that they wanted it for the purpose of purchasing. some spirits at an unlicensed house in the neighbourhood. Solomon, a " cute" mor tal like his' namesake of old, granted the dump; next morinng the money was returned-the constables at the same time begging the lender to take no notice of what had passed. On enquiry it turned out'that the constables had employed a soldier to go to the house of a person named Gerrard, in Upper Pitt-street, who gave him half-a-pint of spirits, which was paid for. The con stables threatening to prosecute, the woman was induced to give them money to stay any further proceedings. The accused were ordered to be remanded to the watch house for another examination. A person named Mary Goddard, residi...
SUPREME CRIMINAL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
SUPREME CRIMINAL 'COURT. WEVDNEsDAY, SEPT. 6.--MARY NEAL, of. Parramatta Road, free woman, was indicted fora 'highway robbery on the person of Patrick Morgan, of iParramatta, freb labourer, on the 13th of 'July last ; and Mr. Anthony Swinton, also of Parramatta-road,: dealer, was put to the bar as a kind of accessary;-Not Guilty" (OUR readers will recollect our giving a very full ac count in our journal, (No.' 10, page 78) of what we con sidered at the time, the irregular manner in which the charge against the above woman was originally inves tigated and determined by the Sydney Bench. It is re markable that Mr. Swinton, whose evidence was refused by, the Bench-'to exculpate the woman, never heard of his being likely to be called upoin himself, to answer to an'indictment as an accessary, until the morning (or the •"day before) of the trial! It. was, however, prudent to indict Mr. S., seeing his evidence had been so refused by the Bench. It appears, however, from the above cir cumsta...
REVIEW OF ENGLISH NEWSPAPERS. Received by us up to the 16th May, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
REVIEW OF ENGLISH NEWSPAPERS, Received by us up to the 161/h May, 1826. Ta. 'irnes, in commenting on iMlr. Huskisson's speech, in an important debate on the 12th May, says, that the British tonnage had increased since the war, from 2,486,000 tons, to 2,580,GO0-a proof that the new system of frce trade had as yet done no harm. It ap pears, however, that the system had been not altogether voluntary on the part of England. America imperiously requred it of us, and so, rather than give her a par ticular a3vantag, it was considered more dignified to grant a free-trade to all nations. Cobbett is opposed to free-trade, but the reasons he gives are not half so sound as he adduces to prove the iniquity of the means em plryevd in bringing about the Reformation. Trading under restrictions, mecans, in our opinion, availing our selves of part of those advantages which God intended mankind, as brethren, to enjoy. And free-trade means the using of all those advantages. '.'his is, we conceive, a pr...
ORIGINAL POETRY. SONNETTO. TO GEORGE, AGED THREE YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
ORIGINAL POETRY. SONNETTO. TO GEORGE, AGEDI THREE YEARS. Sweet rising Sun-thy beauty makes me glad ; Thy beauteous eyes, so dark and bright ! Shine like two rival stars throughout the night, Now mildly beaming-now beautifully mad. Oh ! lovely, as the loveliest dream I ever had, Sweetest and softest-so innocent and light, Not half so calm nor faultless to my sight, Is the first summer's morn in brightness clad : I look on thee as tho' thou wert my own,. And while thine eyes so beautifully shine My thoughts can rest,-but rest on thee alone Around my very heart thou dost entwine On me but ONCE have eyes so beauteous shone, Wild-mad-yet soft-they'd move a heart of stone !

PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. JOINT STOCK COMPANIES—MEXICAN MINING COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 15 September 1826
PARLIAiMENt'AR Y INTELLIGENCE. JOINT STOCK COMPANIES--MEXICAN MINING COMPANY. MR. HOBHOUSE rose to present a petition, to which he requested the attention of the house. It related to a subject to which he had frequently before adverted, and to which, notwithstanding all that had been said, he could not help attributing a great portion of the present distress--he meant joint stock companies. When Hon. Members considered that every one of the shares in those bubbles which was thrown on the market, was a bad piece of Bank currency, they would not be surprised at the extent of the evil which now prevailed. The loss occassioned by the great extent to which those ruinous speculations were carried, if the highest rate of premium and the lowest rate of discount were considered, would, he had no doubt, be found to fall little short of fourteen million pounds. Some, he believed, by far the greater part ofl these speculations, were a total loss to the sub scribers; and of those few which were ...

AN honest well-behaved man, of the name of Healey, who served Dr. Redfern a series of years as butler, at &nbsp; length became free, at the end of a servitude of seven years; and about the same time, his wife, a well-educated woman, who lived with the secretary of the Bank of Ireland, 17 years, with her family, came out to join him. They settled at Penant Hills, and Healey commenced timber-dealer-employed sawyers, procured a timber carriage and teams, and sold his boards, &c. to the mer- chants of. Sydney. There is a convict stationed at a &nbsp; kind of public wharf in Parramatta River, near Penant Hills, and who, because Healey considered the bonus of grog exacted of the inhabitants by the said convict, (as a kind of permission to land and embark at the said public wharf) to be an imposition, with an independence which, was creditable to him, refused to pay the same. The convict-wharfinger, however, being placed; there by the Authorities, was resolved to an...
