Colonial Statistics. BATHURST. [Concluded from our last.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835

BATHURST. [FROM OUR BATHURST CORRESPONDENT.J [. :: Concluded from our last.] • T'rHEgreat drawback to this settlement is the road 'aeross the Blue Mountains, on. the present state of which we propose making a few plain remarks in the hope of their falling under the eye of .those who may have it in their power to re mnedy the existing evil. The mountain-road, from Emu Ford to Spring-Wood, is comparatively ex cellent, and exhibits a most favourable specimen of the superior abilities of the present Surveyor General of New South Wales in the important department of engineering. The ascent of Lap stone-hill, by Major Mitchell's new line, is com paratively easier than by the old perpendicular .track, and the winding of the road along the side of a precipitous glen affords an endless variety of most interesting coups d'oeil. This part of the road has been too recently formed to have got :into disrepair through the ravages of time or 'of butltck-drays; but the portion of road from 'Spring-W...

Colonial Politics. THE EMIGRATION-JOB. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835

Colonial Politics.   The Emigration-Job   It was once obsesrved by an intelligent and judicious Governor of a British Colony, that if the management of any system of em igration to the British Colonies, that might be.adopted under the sanction of authority, should ever fall into the hands of the Go vernment, it would infallibly degenerate into: a mere job. This remarkably shrewd conjec ture has already been completely verified in this colony by indubitable facts; for of all the jobs in which His Majesty's Government have either directly or indirectly' been the high contracting and responsible party, in reference to the Australian coloriies, the job of Female Emigration is unquestionably the most preposterous in its character, and the most ruinous in its tenidencry to :the moral welfaie and the general prosperity of New South Wales.. It was in the month of January, 1831, that His Majesty's Government determined, at the suggestion of Mr. CHARLES,TEN NAriT, M....

SOUTHERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835

SOUTHERN AUSTRALIA. THE proposed colony on the southern coast of this continent, appears to be exciting no small degree of interest in the mother-country. The bill authorising its establishment has been read a third time and has received the royal assent. We have no doubt whatever of the practicability of forming a settlement on that part of the coast, or of the superior eligibility of the situation; but we are quite confident it will not answer the ex- pectations of its founders, till the minimum price of land is fixed at a much lower rate than the one fixed at present, namely, twelve shillings an acre. This minimum has been fixed on an entirely erroneous and unfounded idea of the nature of the soil in this continent, and of the purposes for which it seems destined by nature. The Association proceed on the idea that land in this continent can be of no value to its proprietor till it is cleared: nothing can be more preposterous in a pastoral country. As we understand, how- ever, tha...

Domestic Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835

NEW SOUTH WALES TEMPERANCE SOCIETY. A public meeting of this, Society was held in the old Court-House, Castlereagh Street, at seven o'clock on the evening of Monday last, the Honourable Richard Jones, M.C. in the chair. It was numerously and respectably attended, and the interest excited in favour of the great and good cause of the Society continued unabated till an unusually late hour. Our read- ers will recollect that there had been a previous meeting held in Mr. Hunt's large Shew-Room, on the 17th. Nov. last; but as the business before that meeting could not be gone through at one sitting, it was unanimously agreed to that a second, or adjourned, meeting should be held on an early opportunity. The meeting, on Mon day evening was the result of that proposal, and we are happy to find that during the short inter val that had elapsed from the former meeting, the cause of the Society-a cause in which the best interests of this Colony are so deeply in- volved-had been acquiring popular...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received a letter signed "Benevolentia," congra tulating the public on the formation of a Flour Com- pany, and animadverting rather severely on the procedure of those monopolists who have given occasion for its for mation. We confess we are not fond of Companies, especially when their object is one that can be accom   plished by individual exertion, which we think the case with that of the Flour Company. They are clumsy and expensive affairs in general, and as to benevolence and good feeling towards the public being their ruling prin ciple, they have uniformly been the greatest and the worst monopolists that ever existed. Witness the East India Company and their monopoly of tea. In fact, private competition is much more likely than public companies to put an end to all monopolies. While we therefore are fully aware of the good feelings and good     intentions of "Benevolentia," we deem it unnecessary   an...

WHO IS THE WISEST STATESMAN ? [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835

WHO IS THE WISEST STATESMAN T It a 'very eloquent speech recently delivered by Mr. E. L. Bulwer to his friends and constituents at Lin coln, the following happy illustration occurs:- " Yes, the time has come when (though Mr. Stan ley thundered against the docrine) ' the wisest states man is the boldest.' In the ancient ages of the world; before the compass was discovered, and the principles of navigation known, they who undertook the peril of a voyage were compelled to skulk along the shore-afraid to put out to sea-trembling at every wind-imagining themselves lost if the land disap peared. from their view ; but were they on that ac coutitmore free from shipwreck? No : it was on the rocks and shoals that their timidity drove them, and their :caution was often their destruction. But when the eompass was discovered - when the sublime science which measures the great deeps was attained --then'the boldest mariner became the .wisest. It was the wisdom of courage to. lessen the voyage, to ...

Religious Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835

NEW SOUTH WALES... MOST of our readers are doubtless aware that there are several members of the Society.- of Friends residing at present in Sydney on a visit of philanthropy to this Colony. .On Saturday last they invited the inhabitants of Sydney to a. public meeting for the worship of God, to. be' held on the evening of the following Sabbath, (the 11th instant,) in the old Court-House Cas tlereagh Street. The meeting was accordingly held at the time and place appointed, and was numerously and respectably attended; some, doubtless, as was to be expected on such an oc casion, being actuated by one motive, and others by another; for although the inhabitants of Syd iney cannot properly be accused, like the ancient :Athenians, of being too sulpecrstitious, they certainly iresemble the Athenians in being fond of hearin'g ;some new thing. Indeed, we had reason to know that there was no small degree of expectation of this kind on part of some who attended the meet ing, and who were conseq...
