To the Editor of the Australian. SYDNEY, APRIL 25, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 April 1825

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR, Sydney, April 25, 1825. From all I can observe of the manners of the inhabitants of Sydney— and indeed of the whole Colony, I am satisfied that an admiration— a true enjoyment of the beautiful and romantic in natural scenery, is not a feeling so much cherished or cultivated, as it ought to be among them.           I think this is a matter of great importance, as it affects the hu- man heart, Mr. Editor, and so much influence do I think it has upon the habits and modes of thinking of a people, that I deem the subject not unworthy the consideration of a good go-   vernment.                           We know that the localities of a country determine in some   measure the character of its popu...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (Extract of a Letter from our Correspondent at Hobart Town.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 April 1825

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. 9Extract of a Letter from our Correspondent at Hobart Town.) "A very extraordinary trial took place in the Supreme Court     Monday, March 28. The plaintiff was Mr. T. Thompson,   a very respectable; schoolmaster; and the defendant was Mr.       George Carr Clarke, a merchant of this place. The circumstances under which this action—an action for slander, arose, are as fol-   low:— A Mr. Butler was appointed Registrar of the Supreme     Court here, and embarked with his wife (about the time when       the Chief Justice and the other officers of the Court left England) for this island. He died on the passage; and his widow on her     arrival here, placed the management of her concerns in the hands   of Mr. Clarke, the defendant. It appears, that on some account, this Governm...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 April 1825

THE HOOGLEY has brought Newspapers to the end of last year. The general intelligence they contain is not of much interest to the Colony; but there is a particular paragraph which will claim attention, for THE MORNING CHRONICLE treats its Readers with the following brief morceau: "We can state with cer-       tainty that General Darling has been appointed to the   Government of New South Wales; and Major Goul- burn has been removed, from the office of Secretary to the Government." Now this may turn out to be true,   but at present we are far from giving the most implicit credence to it. The English Ministry have for the             most part a very ungracious way of acting towards their Appointees as soon as they have made up their minds to turn their backs upon them. An unceremo- nious dismissal is nothing new. But we certainly cannot believe...

SAINT GEORGE'S DAY—THE KING'S BIRTH DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 April 1825

SAINT GEORGE'S DAY— THE KING'S BIRTH DAY. Saturday last was the Anniversary of our Patron Saint, and of the Natal Day of our respected Sove- reign. The musketry of the Barracks, the artillery of the Fort, and the guns of the Slaney, by means of sundry pounds of powder, announced to us that the   noontide of that important day had arrived; and that,   "laying aside all pretences and excuses, whatsoever,"   we must think of nothing "ere we sought our downy couch," but our Saint and our King. The mandates were irresistible, and we became both holy and loyal, for the remainder of the day — not forgetting the fiery dragon, when we gulped our fiery Port. Loyalty is the pride of an Englisman. Social loyalty his delight. And on Saturday it was displayed in the truly national style. Unwilling to allow the illustrious 23d of April, commemorative as it is of two great events, to pass over unnoticed, the principal Gentlemen in the Colony, who resided in or...

THE RACES. (First Day.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 April 1825

THE RACES. (First Day.)   The races as might be expected from the prepara- tions of the last five weeks, were truly gay. On Monday, by early dawn, all was bustle and activity, and Sydney almost at "peep of day," began to dis- gorge itself of its motley subjects. All the anticipated disappointments from threatening weather had disap- peared, and people thought of nothing but who should most please, and be most pleased. The "Joysome   countenances," as Sir Thomas Brisbane very aptly de- nominated them, were a spectacle of themselves.— They shewed what cheerfulness races were capable of   diffusing, and what soul enlivening scenes they could produce. All the sports went on, and went off com- pletely to the satisfaction of every body. The result of the race for the Ladies' Cup astonished a good many. The new comers were not prepared to see the   old favorite Speedy bear off the "blushing honors" of the day, and some of the "old ones" w...

CULTIVATION OF FALX IN THE NETHERLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 April 1825

CULTIVATION OF FLAX IN THE NETHER- LANDS.           Soil.—The soil preferred by the cultivators of flax in the Netherlands, is a deep loamy clay, or what they term fat land, free from weeds, and capable of giving wheat, which is in almost every case, the previous crop, except when land after producing madder is to be had, which is esteemed the best of all; but the cultivation of this plant, being rather limited, it is rarely to   be met in quantity compared with wheat stubble. It is, how- ever, a general practice in that country, never to sow flax but in rich good-ground.     Preparation of the soil. — The mode usually followed in the Ne-     therlands of preparing ground for flax, if from wheat stubble (the general previous crop) is, after reaping, to have it immedi- ately lightly ploughed, and let to lie in fallow until the ensuing Spring, when it is ag...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (From the Hobart Town Gazette, April 13.) We feel great satisfaction in stating on good authority, that no less considerable a sum than £200,000 has been raised by public subscription at Madras, for the purpose of founding a College in Tasmania (where health is protected by perhaps the finest climate in the world, and where, of course, it is desirable that every Asiatic resident .should fondly establish his progeny),   for educating the natives of India, instead of sending them to England. As friends to humanity we have much pleasure in communicat-   ing, that before the lapse of three months, the Act for the relief of Insolvent Debtors will most probably be operative in the Co- lony. A motion on the subject was recently made in the Supreme Court by Mr. L. M. Murray; and when we state that the   result was successful to a qualified degree, all parties interested will deeply feel grateful to this Gentleman for having brought b...

To the Editor of the Australian. SYDNEY, Myyc 3, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR, SYDNEY, MAY 3, 1825.   He must be a very idle observer of human events, and must have read the history of former times with little advantage, who does not feel convinced that this Colony will rapidly rise to an importance in the scale of nations, as unlooked for at one period as it is now certain.     It becomes then, a matter of the first rate importance that we should be well acquainted with the causes that have led, and are still leading, to this result, in order that the fostering hand of the British legislature may be directed to proper objects in their now evident anxiety to serve the Colony. We are now said, and with truth, to have arrived at that point at which it becomes necessary to legislate for us, not as a penal settlement, but as a British Colony of encreasing wealth, im- portance, and respectability; and it is but fair and proper, that     we, among ourselves at any ...

Every fresh arrival adds consistence, gives a "form and pressure" to the reports which were originally vague, and prepares us for the great political muta- tions, which most people are anticipating in the Co- lony. It seems very extraordinary that every body should be in the confidence of the British Cabinet, and made acquainted with their intentions, except the parties most concerned and most fit to receive the first intimation of them. The new appointments, as far as we can ascertain, had not appeared in the London Gazette when the last advices left England. That they were not only contemplated, but actually ar-    ranged no one doubted. The following is the result   of the arrangements, by which the destinies of our Australian Society will in future be regulated :— General Darling, Governor.       Mr. Macleay, Colonial Secretary.         Mr. Macleay's eldest son, P...

To the Editors of the Australian. GENTLEMEN. Some few cursory remarks of mine have heretofore occupied a place in your columns, on the impolicy of abridging the rights of a certain class of Colonists, and recent occurrences of im- portance to the Colony, induces me to resume the subject, treat- ing in, a series of letters, the whole jury question in reference t0 all classes, in a comprehensive and legal point of view. And in conclusion I shall shew that it is highly incumbent on the free   inhabitants of this Colony to immediately petition the King and both Houses of Parliament, for the bestowment of all those rights   and priveleges which New South Wales, as a British Colony, is     in a condition to receive, and entitled to enjoy. Allowing these preliminary observations to appear in your   next, will much oblige, Gentlemen, your very obedient servant, April 23, 1825. A Colonist.

Country dances and quadrilles, in succession, were kept up with the greatest spirit until midnight, when the party retired to the supper room, which was also tastefully fitted up, and abounded with all the deli-   cacies that could be procured to please the eye and palate. ...

MR. PITT. — At the establishment of Volunteer   Corps, a certain Corporation agreed to form a body, on condition that they should not be obliged to quit the country. The proposal was submitted to Mr. Pitt, who said he had no objection to the terms, if they would permit him to add, except in case 0f invasion. Mr. Pitt was remarkable for giving his opinion with great positiveness. At a Cabinet dinner   he was once expatiating on the beauties of the Latin language; and as an argument in favour of the su-   periority he affirmed it had over the English, he said, that two negatives made a thing more positive than one affirmative could positively do. Then, said   Lord Thurlow, your father and mother must have   been negatives, to have made such a positive fellow as you.
