Domestic Intelligence. THE STREETS OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 14 May 1835

THE STREETS OF SYDNEY.   THE Government have lately been bestowing a laudable degree of attention upon the highways and byways of our colonial metropolis. There are several gangs now at work upon the streets on the eastern side of the town, and some of them already begin to exhibit a highly creditable appearance. Elizabeth Street, especially, has been much improved, and when the proposed row of houses is erected on the site of the old Lumber-yard, the approach to Government House by Bridge Street, which has also been un- dergoing a thorough repair, will be somewhat worthy of a colonial capital. One cannot help feeling a degree of indignation towards the'earlier Governors of this colony, foi the manner in ihielh they allowed one of the finest sites for a'ggeat city in the British Empire, 'to be so completely spoiled as that of Sydney was in, the earlier times of our colonial history. Governor Macquarie. did every thing in his power to-reform and re-: model the' town, but...

It excited uncommon interest among all circles and went through' ixz editions in the course of a few days. The following: passage will give the reader a pretty fair idea of this very clever production: The cabinet of Lord, Melboprne had not been tried. There was a vast difference between the two administrations (Lord Grey's and Lord Melbourne's), and that difference was this-in the one the other was the minority, in the other it was the majority. In the cabinet of the late premier, the weight of Sir John Hobhouse, Lord Duncannon, and the Earl of Mulgrave, was added to the scale of the people. There was in, the chbinet just dissolved a majority of men whose very reputation was the popular voice, whose names were as wormwood to the Tories, and to whom it is amusing to contrast the'language applied by the Tory journals wi...

TO- THE I EDITOR Ol' THE ' COLONIST. SIR,-You have. in your last' number plb lished a letter signed Charles Dawson,, con taininig a series of most unfounded attacks on the character of Capt. Collins and myself. Had Capt. Collins been, at home; I should have left the affair to his more mature judgment; but as he is' at present' absent, I see nothing 'for it but to take up the pen in my own defence. ¶ Dawson's statement of his adventures at the Cape may. be true or otherwise ,for anything I know or care. He was engaged by Capt. Collins as head-groom to .take charge of the horses. On the 'arrival of the Lonach, which vessel had on. board two' valuable Arab entire horses, which Capt. 'Collins had imported at an im mense expense from Madras, these were given into his charge as'were the horses "belonging to the' Captain's stud. The .day after Capt. Col lins departed for Regentville, Dawson, in direct violation of his master's orders, mounted one of the Arabs, and began id gallop him up an...

I~elitgiotu Jtelligetuce. THE ESTABLISHED CHIIURCH. [BY JOHN FOSTER.] TO THE EDITOR GF THE" MORNING CHRONICLE. LETTER II.- [CONCLUDED.] TI the next place, what are you prepared to say respecting that much greater proportion of persons in the sacred profession, whom you pronounce, both ex pressly and virtually, ,to be no true ministers of the gospel, therefore no safe guides of the people to sal vation? In so pronouncing, you say they ought never to have been in the profession. But is it not a strange dilemma that, for this most valid reason they ought never to have been in it, and that yet if wiould be a religious.calamity for them to be out of it? SThere is no doubt that when the clerical office should cease to be an endowed profession, great nuin bers would speedily relinquish it, partly from the withdrawment of the former support and emolument, which in very many cases the congregations would not feel esteem enough to replace-by voluntary sup plies; partly from the indifference o...

Origiunag to le potrence. ROMISH DOCTRINE OF PURGATORY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. SIR,-.I have recently been led to a serious con sideration of the Romish doctririe of Purgatory; and upon a strict examination, I have arrived at the following conclusions: --1. That it cannot be proved by Scripture. 2. That it is a heathen, and not a Christian, doctrine. And 3. that it was introduced. into the .Church by philoso phizing Christians. Before I enter upon the proofs of these three propositions, I shall state the doctrine as exhi bited to tihe world in the accredited publications of the Church of Rome. "; There is a Prn GATORY, or place of torment after this life, for the expiation of the 'sins ofgood men, which" are not sufficiently., purged here; 'and that the souls, there detained, are helped by- masses, prayers, and other good works of the liv ing."-Conc., Tid.
