Religious Intelligence. THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MORNING CHRONICLE. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 23 April 1835

THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH. [BY. THIE CELEBItATED JOHN FOSTER.] TO THE EDIT.OI OF THE MORNING CIIRONICLIE. [CONCLUDED.] IN the economy of Protestant Dissent there is one distinctive fact of high importance, and so nearly universal that the exception must be very small-the requirement of personal religion as essential in the qualifications of a minister; I mean that he be ha bitually and seriously, intent on the cultivation, of piety in his own mind, with a view to his own last. account, his own final safety. In so very numerous a class it is inevitable that there will be admitted some false pretenders, and that there will occur too many lapses of human frailty in such as are not hypocrites. But these examples, when exposed, are branded with a peculiar opprobrium, for the very reason that personM piety is in them an avowed and perfectly understood sine qua non. They must afford satisfactory cause for the people's believing them to be such. I need not ask you whether there be any existing...

LITERATURE AND SCIENCE. COLONIAL LITERATURE. I.--Four Lectures or the Horticulture of New South Wales, delivered at the Mechanics' School, of Arts, Sydney. By THOMAS SHEP- HERD. Sydney, McGarvie. WE beg to recommend this unassuming but   highly useful publication, to the attention of all agriculturists and horticulturists in New South Wales, for many of the very judicious remarks it contains will be found as useful for the farmer as for the gardener. The following on Irrigation- a process almost unknown in this colony, though almost universal among our neighbours at the Cape of Good Hope, whose soil and climate are so similar to our own -are invaluable: - I have seen some of the best gardens in New South   Wales, and in general I have observed a defect in nearly all of.them, which is the want of reservoirstto.i hold water to irrigate the ground. I am convinced' that without irrigation, or flooding in very dry seasons,'; neither a good crop of choice fruits,...

English Extracts. THE KING'S ANSWER TO THE CITY ADDRESS, AND AVOWED POLICY OF THE PRESENT MINISTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 30 April 1835

ý:8tti h t.) Extta ts. .THE KING'S ANSWER TO THE CITY .:ADDRESS, AND AVOWED POLICY OF THE PRESENT MINISTERS. Tu.i King's Answer to the City Address appears to have called forth as many opinions as there are dif ferent shades of party,jand whilst one set of meri seem bontent to accept it as a sufficient assurance of the progress of the reform cause, it is regarded by others .as so purposely vague and general as to bind the King and ministers to nothing. Who can doubt, they say, that the King is desirous of improving the con dition of his people, and that he w.ll willingly correct every thing which he regards as an abuse? but where is the assurance that he regards as abuses what the nation knows and feelslto be such, and that his ministry shall continue to uphold that reform which the people pow consider to have become a part of the fundamental law of parliamentary, representation, and the practical developement of the original constitution of. the country?

Ltterature anti Citteine. [FROM AN AMERICAN PAPER:' COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. ,BY His Excellency John Davis, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, A Procla mation, for a day of Public Thanksgiving and Praise. The fruits of the earth on which we rely for suste nance, are matured. The husbandman is now reap. ng the bounties of a kind Providence, as the rewardi of his toil, and the season is near when it has been cus tomary to offer to the Supreme Being the tribute of our gratitude for the pany blessings conferred upon us. Our own feebleness and limited intelligence is man ifest. We can neither cause the sun to shine nor the earth to be warmed; the rains to descend nor ve getation to spring into existence. To-day the green grass covers the hills, to-morrow they are veiled with a mantle of snow. To-day the trees are clothed with a lovely verdure; to-morrow the bitter frost reveals their naked limbs.-But we can neither make the grass green nor unfold the leaf, nor can we pr...

Arrived at Moorea about 4 P.M . and spent the evening very pleasantly at Mr. Simpson's" Thursday, 9th.-Early in the morning attended school. A vessel appearing in the offing, we dis patched a boat to board her, thinking it probable that she might be bound to Tahiti with Missionaries for the Navigators' Islands. After. breakfast, went in company with Captain Charlton and Mr. Bicknell, to the sugar plantation, where we saw the mill in opera tion, worked by horses; the first on these islands that has been turned by these animals. On our return we boarded the vessel, which was just coming to an anchor in the harbour; we found it to be the Parker of 1New Bedford, Capt. Brown, bou...

THE SYDNEY RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 30 April 1835

THE SYDNEY RACES. WE are happy to find that the barbarous'. and disgraceful scenes exhibited at the late Sydney Races, have had the effect of opening the eyes of a considerable portion of the respectable' in habitants of the colony to the true character and tendency of that brutalizing amusement. In short, there is nothing that more strongly evinces the utter blindness, if not the reckless indiffer ence, of many who ought to know better things in this colony, as to the means ct' promoting-the real welfare and securing the rapid advancement of this' community, than the passion for horse racing which so generally characterises the higher classes of society in this convict colony. Of the character of the persons whom the gentlemen of the turf are the honoured instruments of assem bling at their periodical exhibitions of blood and'' wounds, the following is a somewhat characteristic sketch. A poor drunken creature, recently dis-, missed for intemperance from the Sydney.' tiice, arrays h...

NAVIGATION OF THE EUPHRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 30 April 1835

NAVIGATION OF THE EUPHRATES. DURING the' last week we have had the pleasure of inspecting the two iron-steam-boats building by Messrs. Laird, of this town, at their yard, on the opposite side of the river, for the navigation of the Euphrates. Great progress has already been made with them, and they arc expected to be ready in five or six weeks. When finished they will be remark ably firm vessels, and well adapted for the purposes for which they are designed Most of our readers are aware that a grant of 20,0001. was made during the last session of Parlin ment for the purpose of exploring the river Euphrates, with a view to ascertain whether a shorter and more expeditious route to India might not be discovered along its waters Ihan even by the It d Sea. This great river, which was probably the first route fol lowed by the nations of Western Asia in their expe ditions to India, has, since the fall of the caliphs, been closed against European commerce, owing to the bar barism and bigotr...

RAILROAD TRAVELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 30 April 1835

RAILROAD TRAVELLING. ALTbHOvU the whole passage between Liverpool and Manchester is a series of enchantments, surpasssing any in the Arabian Nights, because they are realitie s not fictions, yet there are ceitain epochs in the transit which are peculiarly exciting. These are the start ings, the ascents, the descents,, the Chat Moss, the meetings.' At the instant of starting, or rather before, the automaton belches forth an explosion of steam, and seems, for a second or two, quiescent.-But quickly the explosions are reiterated, with shorter intervals, till they become too rapid to be counted, though still distinct. These belchings or explosions more nearly resemble the pantings of a lion or tiger, than any sound that has ever vibrated on my ear. During, the ascent they become slower and slower, till the automaton actually labours like an animal out of breath, from the tremendous efforts to gain the highest pont of the elevation. The prcgre:sion is proporticnate; and before the said p...
