No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 30 June 1825

Among other matters forming this week's miscel- lany our attention has been directed to the rise, pro- gress, decline and fall of Macquarie Pier at Newcastle. It is a remarkable feature in the management of affairs during the last few years, that almost every public work of utility has been relinquished. Build- ings that ought long since to have been finished, and appropriated to the purposes for which they were com- menced have been most unaccountably allowed to tumble into ruins. Amongst the number is this useful pier which has been the grave of thousands of pounds, and, as our account states, must be the grave of thou- sands more, before it can be put into that condition in which it was when the workmen were withdrawn. The   advantages which a pier at Newcastle affords to vessels trading thither, in allowing their easy approach to the shore, render its completion a matter of the first import- ance. Since Newcastle ceased to be a penal settlement the number of wealthy...

IMPROMPTU. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 30 June 1825

IMPROMPTU. ON BEING ASKED WHY THE AUTHOR RETIRED FROM THE DINNER TABLE SHORTLY AFTER THE LADIES.       When Adam in Paradise ruled as it's lord, Enthron'd 'neath a sycamore shady ; He felt but half blest with all earth could afford,   Till the deities sent him a lady.               So I, having feasted on beauty and wine,         Find the half of my joys gone astray are —         The claret be yours — but the women be mine ;   For it must be a heaven where they are. J. R. M. " It really is a matter of surprise (says a correspondent of the Hobart Town Gazette) that not one resident in Hobart Town, who is not a Government Officer, is in the new commission.

MISCELLANEOUS. ' ' It is very currently'reportcd, that Lord Combermere is going out to India to succeed Sir E.Paget as Commander of the Forces. Lord Amherst, we understand, is to keep, undisturbed, the post of Governor-General. It is reported a Brevet is to take place in the Army   and Navy, shortly ; probably on St. George's Day. Every regiment is to receive two additional compa nies. The Cavalry is also to be increased in the same proportion. The whole of a regiment is never again to be sent to the colonies or garrisons abroad ; if it consists of ten companios, six will be sent, and four and a field officer remain at home. — (Globe.) The unfortunate turn which affairs have lately taken in the East Indies, arising, in a great measure, out of the inability of the individual at the head of the Go- vernment to plan and direct extensive military opera tions, has naturally led to considerable dissatisfaction with the appointment of Lord Amherst. In the case of Lord Charles ...
