TO PROFESSING CHRISTIANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 21 May 1835

TO PROFESSING' CHRISTIANS. r' Lay not up for yourselvestrsensures upon, earth."? ''The silver and the gold is mine, saith the Lord." --':Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your payses." . . . " Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you." " Is it.not enough that the disciple be as his master. " Trust in the Lord, .and do . good, and.verily thou shull be fed." 'I'r is well asked by one who has in his own person furnished an examprlification of the principles above inculcated ;-lHow is it that Christianity has made' so little progress during the last fifteen hundred years? Simply because there has not been a con tinued observance of those precepts of our Lord, which teach us that we should love our neighbour as ourselves, and live in a state of more simple, and faithful dependence on his Providence. This is as yet, in its practical application, a very unfashionable doctrine, even in the religious world: but if we are sincere when we pray that his kingdom may com...

CEYLON,' ITS TRADE AND' "GOVERN .:1MLENT.. CEYLON, in: official. parlance, isecalled a British:co. lony; although' it has a tolerably authentic 'naiive history, which goes oack foui-and-twenty, denturies, or to a .period corresponding. with. the, age :f Cyls : and of Confucius, and with. the sixtieth Olympiad. This is a trifle,-w- e do not expect accuracy pf scien- tific classification in the public offices; so we let the . matterpass, simply observing that, the island of.Cey Ion is literally a conquered proviince, of which the native inhabitants, are excluded from every, public trust of the: smallest -responsibility," and, whose obe dience is secured by the grand instrument of authority. in such: cases,, the-,bayonet.

Original and Select Poetry. THE WILD BUSHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 21 May 1835

THE WILD BUSHMAN. BY THOMAS PRINGLE. LET the proud boor possess his flocks, And boast his fields of grain; My home is 'mid the mountain rocks, The desert my domain.   I plant no herbs or pleasant fruits, Nor toil for savoury cheer : The desert yields me juicy roots, And herds of bounding deer. The countless springboks are my flock, Spread o'er the boundless plain; The buffalo bends to my yoke, Andthe wild horse to my rein; My yoke is the quivering assagai My rein the tough bowstring ; My bridle curb is a slender barb-- Yet it quells the forest king.   The crested adder honoureth me, And yields at my command,   His poison-bag, like the honey-bee, When I seize him on the sand.   Yea, even the locusts' wasting swarm, Which mightiest nations dread, To me brings joy in place of harm, For I make of them my bread. Thus I am lord of the desert land, And I will not leave my bounds ; To crouch beneath the Christian's hand,   And...

THE TROPIC CALM. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 21 May 1835

T, THE. TROPIC CALM. BY IONE. How lwearily the long noons wane Upon a tropic sea, W?hen not, an. air-breath tells theane - SWhich way the iriindsminay be; . The very ship beneath the sun Seems like a spell-bound slave; Her black hull barely heaves upon The welter of the wave. I lean against the larboard shrouds Under that sun's fierce eye; Counting the chain of crag-like clouds Piled up the steep blue sky : . How motionless their points emerge Over the azure main, Like Alpine peaks skirting theverge Of a vast level plain. The shadow of the dark-rigg'd ship Sleeps like a shape of dream, The startled wing'd fish skiih and dip Through the transparent stream, One lonely bird wheeling around Pipes its shrill song on high, But other shape; or sight, or sound, Stirs not on sea or sky. Comne blessed night! with planet-eyes Climb from thy cloudy lair, Let thine imprisoned winds arise, Cooling this close hot air, Then shall the waves like happy things Leap in their life-like play And the glad...

ON MY FIRST POETICAL ASPIRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 21 May 1835

ON MY FIRST POETICAL ASPIRATIONS. BY HENRY HALLORAN. I FOUND that others had some natural gift, The pencil's treasures, or the charmed ear, Or eloquence of tongue, which far and near Might find admirers,--and I strove to sift My own weak self, and seek amidst the drift And waste of youth, some talent to revere; And as I grew into my sixteenth year, Within my spirit stirrings strange and swift Began to wake, with tears and musings-sad: I wander'd through the woods, and by the sea, And in retired places linger'd long, Until I thought my brain was growing mad, For sighs of grief, and agonies of glee,     Came to my lips, and gather'd into song.

SYDNEY IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 28 May 1835

SYDNEY IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sm.--Under this head you have suggested a. plan for paving the, streets with wood.' In. early. life I was theoretically acquainted with, the different methods proposed and adopted for pa-: ving the city of London, and therefore may per. haps be permitted to give an opinion on a sub= ject so foreign to my present pursuits. From., my observation I think the mechanic's suggestion' a very good one, but like every theory it must:' be reduced to practice before we can discover its substantial utility. The mode of paving I would . suggest, is as follows :-Let hard wood trunks; be sawn trarisversely in lengths of eighteen inches, then with a shingler's knife or any more precise machine let the block be squared ; four blows would accomplish this. The surface. would thus become about a foot square;; but a smaller superficial admeasurement will'not sig nify. Then let the blbcks be laid close against one another; let them be well set in the ba...

Original Correspondence.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. May, 20, 1835. SIR.-Having been required to attend before the Police Magistrates to answer a charge made by a servant, and having with much inconveni ence waited some days with several witnesses before the charge was heard, being at length de clared by the bench, as it is termed (viz. the third police magistrate and another younger man) guilty of the charge, and fined in the sum of five shillings to the king, I waited upon the bench the following morning, respectfully to re quest their advice as to the course I should adopt, should similar circumstances again arise, that I might not be subjected to the repetition of such an accusation. The decision having been made publicly, and being in itself positively un just (though possibly not illegal), being also de rogatory from my character, and pernicious in its consequences, I wished to make the inquiry publicly too. I was however referred to a pri vate interview with...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONISTi;:' Sydney, May 25, 1835. Sxn,--I lose no time in soliciting a portion of your columns in favour of the Editor of The He rald; who has conceived and brought forth (and - is quite as well as can be expected, as the nurses say,) one of the most monstrous absur-. dities ever perpetrated, even by a Sydney Edi-' tor. The attention of the public, however, is.., not claimed merely on account of the absurdity of the affair, but because it involves the interests of that important section of our colonial popula-.' tion, the wool-growers. It appears that the English newspapers ad dressed to The Herald office have, of late, been so barren of extractive matter-(not. the chemical term), "that the Editor has been reduced' to the miserable necessity of hauling into his paper the; very advertisements, one of which fills up, an otherwise would be "mortal " hiatus in The Herald of the 14th inst., nor has the Editor treated 'this advertisement in any respect difeienrit fro...
