To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 April 1825

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR,     Having observed in your Paper of the 10th ultimo     "the most curious and ingenious method to shape and   sow turnips and potato drills, adopted by Mr.Pretsell, superintendent to the estate of the Rev. S. Marsden," and being desirous of profiting by any improvement, I applied for information respecting the same, and found the same mode had been practised on Mr. Mars- den's estate since 1819, and is at present pursued on the estates of other gentlemen in the Colony. I am   given to understand that the credit of introducing this system of agriculture here is due to Wm. Howe, Esq. of Glenlee. Your insertion will oblige AN OLD AGRICULTURIST.             Public Opinion.—General Conway gives this description of a     political pamphlet— "The patriots cry it up, and th...

Th'e manner in which Justices of the Peace admi- nister the laws of their Country often becomes the subject of discussion, hardly less often of complaint, and on occasion meets with merited and severe                 reprobation. The mind of man can seldom withstand the intoxicating influence of power, which allures as it corrupts, and corrupts as it encroaches. The pos-   sessor of power has only to enjoy irresponsibility, and all around him become the slaves of his will or examples of his oppression. From this circumstance alone Country Magistrates are commonly the tyrants   of the village, the terror of the neighbourhood. It   is indeed a defect in our legal establishments, for which it is difficult to prescribe a remedy without incurring an evil of an opposite tendency, that the inferior Mi- nisters of Justice are so much sheltered from t...

THE BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 21 April 1825

THE BANK. The 'proprietors of this most useful Institution met «n Satiuday morning* last» agreeably, to two several ? advertisements calling them together, for special and *rp.ncra£ business. One of the advertisements was' i dictated by the Board of Directors. — the ' other by ten or more of the proprietors. Such a coincidence,'' coti pled with several reports respecting the internals of the Bank, excited some interest in the public mind ;? and in consequence there was a good muster of ? the 'Proprietors. About 12 die President was about to enter on the business of the day, when a Pr-oprietor suggested the necessity of the Court electing its own Chairman. This gave rise to a debate of some length. .Mr. Campbell, Mr. Wentworth, jun. and. Mr. Oxley contended,- that by analogy, and agreeably to the byo-; laws of the old Charter, wkich had been adopted' by the Proprietors of the new, the President ought to ?preside at all Courts of Proprietors. Mr. Hall denied the analogy set forth, and...

A new Mode of Punctuation.— At a dinner ta ble, a short time ago, one of those non-descripts, called a dandy, was seated at the top, and an honest plain-dealing farmer, at the bottom. During the re past, many affectedly polite speeches were made by the beau, and a great many coarse ones by the farmer. When cheese was introduced, the fop, in a mincing tone, asked the company ' whether they would par take of it, and which of the two they preferred, the pure part or the impure ?"— " D—n your pure or im oure," vociferated the farmer, give me some of the rotten." " Sir," exclaimed the dandy, 'I must beg leave to tell you, that you have made many very inso lent speeches during dinner : and, if I have any re petitions of your insolence, I shall place my thumb and finger, one on each side of your nose, and make a parenthesis of it." A parenthesis shall you?" re- joined the blunt old man; "why then I shall thrust my clumsy fist in your chops, and make a full stop ?" A period, in an instant, ...

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR. SYDNEY, APRIL 19, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 21 April 1825

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR, Sydney, April 19, 1825.       I don't know what amusement or information your readers may have derived from my last, or rather first, letter to you;— but, whatever their feeling may have been— the reading of it in print, afforded me the greatest possible pleasure. I read and re-read it over and over again with the affectionate and partial eye with which I have observed a parent regard a first born child.—     I am essentially a social animal, Mr. Editor, and to have parti- cipators in my joys and sorrows is indispensable to my comfort.— I cannot, for the life of me, bottle up a good thought for after use; and could never manage to sleep sound at night when I had any thing upon my mind. I have often heard a country friend of mine declare that a London crowd impressed him with a feeling of deep solitude; — that London itself appeared a per-   fect wilderness; — a moving ...

Our Readers and the Public will rejoice heartily at the issue of the trial in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. All the complicated charges against Capt. Mitchell for "unlawful detention," for firing at   "King's officers," for obstructing "civil process,"     "aiding and abetting" in the "firing at" His Ma-     jesty's subjects—all—all have fallen to the ground.     The famous Warrant, so unique in its kind, and by virtue of which the cargo of the ALMORAH was to have been taken possession of, has been declared, by a judi- cial tribunal, illegal. It is the first warrant we ever knew to be issued for unlawful detention of goods;       and, we hope, it will be the last. Capt. Mitchell, who has been held up to the Colony as a felon — who has   been publicly charged with having subjected himself to the capital penalties of Lord Ellenborough's Act, ha...

ENGLISH NEWS, &c. During the month of December Cabinet Councils were held unusally often by the King. Several reasons have been aissigned for the frequency of these meetings. It is believed that the eva- cuation of Spain was a prominent subject of the conferences's Through the Cabinet of England did not oppose the entrance of the French armies into Spain, Ministers are getting a little   uneasy at their sojourn there ; and it is believed will adopt decisive steps to prevent a permanent occupation of the Country, and the consequent aggrandizement of France.
