SOCEZTY OR .EEWARD 'XZSL.&NDS. HuAHINE has been a scene of domestic affliction. Thlie widow of the late young and lamented missionary Loxton, with her posthumous daughter Emily, took her passage to England in the Discovery, commanded by Captain Morgan, whom we understand to be a very - pious man. She was accompanied by two of Mr. Barff's sons, woo are sent home for their education. Mr. Barffwrites--" Death has cut down our Queen, Maihara ; and your old friend, Maiti, her. husband is quite disconsolate. She has been a steady chuirch member ever since you admitted' her at' Pa opai, in Tahiti. In great, coomposure she told her husband a little before she died, not. to weep, for the fear of: death was' taken away, 'and she was ready. She desired her husband'to read the eleventh chapter of John, and to pray with her,,which he did with many sobs and teais; and shortly after, she departed, in. peace.. Mr. laitui sends his.

TAHITI. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 23 April 1835

T.'A ETX. MISSIONARY affairs at Tahiti are improving. The law to prohibit the importation of spi ituous liquors has proved a great blessing to the island. A little of that destructive poison finds its way on shore by means of smuggling, which cannot be altogether prevented.* A great improvement has taken place in the royal family, and the queen's conduct has been so correct that she is considered as a candidate for church fellowship. On the 22nd of January, she bore a son, to the no small joy of the inhabitants, as. it', was feared the family of Pomare would become extinct. The young.prince was tobe baptized on the 8th of March. ''lhe chapels and schools are well attended. Mr. Nott has become quite infirm; he has not beenable to get out for several months till lately, but now is so much better as to preach once each Sabbath.day. It is his earnest desire to be spared to finisihe translation of; the scriptures. Mr. Pritchard gives him. every assistance both in his pulpit labours and i...

SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. MARQUESAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 23 April 1835

SOUTi S6'A SISANWDS. MARQUESAS. TILE missionaries Darling, Stallworthy and Roger son, the two latter recently from England, sailed from Tahiti to the Marquesas, in September last year, in a small vessel belonging to Mr. Ebrill, of Tahiti, and commanded by him. They proceeded to Tahuata (St. Christiana), one of the islands of the windward group of the Marquesas, and attempted to establish a mission there. Mr. Rogerson was accom panied by his wife, and Mr. Darling by his son, and they were all left on that island. Captain Ebrill called again about the commencement of the pre sent year, and found them all well and comfortably situated. Mr. Darling had preached to the natives every Sabbath-day in their own language, and a consi dcrable number of them came to the missionaries daily to receive instruction. The missionaries had erected and nearly completed a good dwelling-house, and were expecting to get a chapel and school-house built before long. Prospects are far more encouraging there ...

11.-lllustrations of the Present State and Future Prospects of the Colony of New South Wales. Sydney, W. MoffittI THIS publication, of which.the first number has been ,published, is from the pen: of Dr.. John 'Lhotsky, Member of the Royal Botanical Society of Bavaria. We have a, great' respect-for Dr. L., and we really think his scientific attainments might. be:-rendered very useful for the advance ment of science in this colony, were he to obtain some appointment, connected-.with: the depart ment of n'atutral history, which would" enable.him from time to time to make exploratory tours in the interior, and to collect, arrange,, and describe, specimens" in mineralogy, zoology, and- botany. But we are inclined:to believe that he has 'alto gether mistaken his forte, and overrated lhis powers, in stepping forward ''on the arena of lite rature as a political Reformer' ahd Constitution mender for the colony of' New South Wales?

Domestic Intelligence. COLONIAL MORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 23 April 1835

COLONIAL MORALITY. .WE Ihve had occasion, in our leading article of this day, to allude to the manner ii which Messrs. Cheat'em, Paynothing, and Co. -the owners of no inconsiderable portion of the located territory of New South \v ales- act towards their hirel servants, who, it may be, are industrious but poor. emigranmts from the mother-country. Two. cases illustrative of the unfeeling and-unprincipled procedure of this firm have just fallen under our notice, and we think it due to the public to bring them under that of the reader. The one is that of a free emigrailt 'Englishman from HIampshire, who arrived a few months ago, and was hired as a 'farm-servant for a certain period at eight shil-' lings. a-7week with rations. Long before the stipulated period had expired, however, his em ployer turned off the poor man at a moment's warning, without assigning any other reason than that he did not require him. any longer; paying him at the rate of four shillings a week, leaving him, of c...

HOW TO RAISE THE TONE OF '"SOCIETY IN NEW SOUTH WALES.

Srn,-This street has been completely obstructed .by carts and men for nearly an hour, the assem blage occasioned by two men fighting opposite the;Freemason's Arms public-house. I looked in,vain for some of the police to quell the dis tifrbance for some time; and when a constable did appear, he was in no haste to do any thing, so'that the boxers found time sufficient to enter into the- public-house as a sort of fort. The constable in a very policeman-like manner, said (doubtless for the information of his hearers, and intrdduding his 6observation with one of the cus tioairiymreaiaionids),' " If they' want to fight, whfiy don't they keep out of my sight."

GREAT BRITAIN. THE IRISH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 23 April 1835

THIE IRISH CHURCH. :'I??E Catholic Church has never, since the Reform ation at least, been in any country in so inefficient a state as that which is calld the Protestant Church of Ireland. Care is always taken that the people 'shall have access to priests; and ,the gentry are allvwed to treat the working clergy as few gen Stlk?ieh- would treat their menials. Before the W'iench.revolution, the working clergyman ofa parish was always secured in a portion congrue, a certain income of which he could not be deprived. But the Protestant Church of England and lieland abounds far more with abuses than any Catholic Church. The Catholics have abolished pluralities. In Ireland, as we have said, parish has been added to parish, till unions inay be considered the rule; and in England, the most scandalous inequalities have been continued to our times, to afford a pretext for pluralities. In every other Church but that of Ireland some regard has been had to the language of the n-aives. The Danish ...
