FOURTH MEETING OF THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION. [CONCLUDING NOTICE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 16 April 1835

FOURTH MEETING OF THE BRITISH : ASSOCIATION. [C. .NCLUDIomNo 2r0o .] ArTE? .some preliliinary remarks, Professor Forbes, 'Professor : of-Natural Philosophy' in the Uiiiversity of Edinburgh, one of the Secretaries. of the Association, tlihe addressed the Meeting. If we now turn from .the professions to the acts of the Association, we shlall find gratifying proof that these sanguine anticipations were not chimerical : and that this primary machinery, not destined itself to do the work desired, but to construct the tools.re quisite for its performance, was wanting neither in efficiency nor in permanence. The first and more signal proof. which we* can; cite, is the' production .of those reports on the progress of science, which ap peared to the founder. of the Association one of the most important objects of such aninstitution, and one which, beyond all dispute, no.. existing society could hlave attempted.

HUNTER'S RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 16 April 1835

HUNTER'S RIVER. NOTWITHSTANDING the hue and cry that was raised some time ago by some of our contem poraries at the appointment of Mr. Campbell, formerly His Excellency's Aide-du-camp, to the office of Police-magistrate at Maitland, we are happy to learn, from our respectable correspon dent at Hunter's River, that no appointment that has taken place in the colony has given such general satisfaction to those concerned. Mr. Campbell discharges the important duties of his station with vigilance and with vigour; and we anticipate a progressive improvement in the morals of the lower orders in the town of Mait land from his firmness and activity. There is no country in the known world in which the preser vation of the public peace depends so much on the police-magistrate as it does in this colony; and it is therefore of vital importance to the community to have men appointed to that office who will discharge its duties faithfully and fear- lessly. In particular, we would recommend Mr. Cam...

Fathers' of the Chuth, an'd by the opihion of, the Wisest and best of men. " The ancient Fathers," says Bishop Tomline, "always speak of the Srriptures as containing a complete rule of faith and practice, and appeal to them, and to them only, in support of the doc trines which they advance.", And Archbishop Tillotson, in one of his controversial works, tri umphantly exclaims:: "I challenge our adversa ries- to shew me where any one of the ancient Fathers discourages the people from reading th...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sir, .As you were pleased to make some strong remarks in a late CoLONIST, on the Steam Con veyance Packet Australia working on a Sunday, and though your lucubrations are somewhat in the emperitive mood, and even a little threatening but I do not mind that, as I have learned the threats of pain and ruin to dispise; your sentiments, .though very good, might, I think, have been ex pressed in better taste-more courteous, more per suasive; however, they have not failed to obtain attention. Atthe late meeting of the company, it was proposed and seconded, that the Parramatta Packet should not work on a Sunday, but the magority of the company were of opinion that she should, to afford innocent and salubrious recreation amidst the beauties of nature, to the sober and industri. ous class of our Society, many of whom are shareholders in the concern. You will be pleased' to know, that the company decided that in fu .ture, no intoxicating liquors should be sold on ...

TEMPERANCE IN THE ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 23 April 1835

TEMPERANCE IN THE ARMY. P[FROM A CO?RESPONDENT.] Pontre attention in Great Britain has of late been strongly called to the prevalence of intemperance in the army. Officers have long since ceased to consider it a point of etiquette to leave the mess room in a state bordering on actual intoxication; for, indeed, the practice in this particular, which "vas once widely prevalent, is now generally ba nished from all classes of genteel society; but the evil.habit of drinking to excess still prevails to a lamentable extent among the common sol diery, although in some regiments it is mnch more prevalent than in others. It is gratifying to learn,however, that the.Duke of Wellington has not only aided, the Institution of Temperance So cieties. among the military; as will be seen by the following regimental order, but.has given most decisive evidence before the committee of the House of Commons in favour of prompt and vigorous measures, to put a stop to intoxication. and all disorders and puni...
