WE have been requested by a Correspondent to give place to the following critique on WILD NOTES, (We shall give our own as soon as we can find leisure.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 November 1826
WVe have been :requested by, a Correspondent to give place Sto the following critique on WILD NOTES, FROM THE LYRE OF A NATIVE MINSTREL. (We shall give our' own as soon as too can find ,leisure.) 'WHEN an author gives his lucubrations to the world, how e\ver he may attempt by note, comment, or preface, to concil iate the critic or hush the voice of censure, by indirectly de claring his own sense of their imperfections-yet de facto, he believes them to be in a great 'measure, faultless; and if some envious critic discovdr a few flaws, he imnmediately at tributes the discovery to .in'capacity and ill nature, and to a doe termination to find fault with something. But be an author's ideas on the subject what they may, certain it is, that the pub lishing a work is a challenge of the world's opinion, and its praise or dispraise must depend either on the judgment and good-taste of the commentator, who thus accepts the chal lenge, or, as is too often the a'se, on a splenetic effusion of cap...
THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 November 1826
THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1826. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; WE have perused the new conditions on which the Government propose granting Tickets-of-Leave and Emancipations. We consider the scale so severe—so unreasonable—and so impossible, or rather so inoperative in execution, as to amount to mere tantalization. Upon what ground, either of reason or humanity, does the Government claim such spotless behaviour from wretch- ed men, demoralized as we know the convicts to be? Free virtuous English labourers could not perform the con- ditions of this new scheme—how then should convicts? It is no use saying, the fellows ought to be this, and ought to be that; .and that they have a particular duty t0 per- form in submitting to the caprice, contumely, and bru- tality of their Botany Bay Masters, more than if they were free men. Indeed ! why then give up the scheme as a bad job—it is downright folly to expect any thing of the sort from such men—therefore leave the wre...

To the Editor of the MONITOR, [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 November 1826
To the Editor of the MONITOB, SIR, I AM a free settler, live Appin, and renti a farm of 60 acres., I have been a .constable this cplony, but after two &nbsp; years' service I resigned. I came to Sydney, yesterday, with a load of 20 bushels of wheat, with the intention of selling it to-day, together with part of a 'ton of' pork brought down by m'e three weeks ago. Last night I took a' merry glass, but no more, with- my friends, which,: as I paid for it, I consider no public offence. I went to bed about ten o'clock, at Mr. Wheedon's, but at twelve, being disturbed by a noisy man, I got up and left the, house, with the intention of going to John Cullen's to finish the night. I 'fell in with constables and talked with them. I arrived at Dillon's, where Cullen used to live, and rapped gently at the door. I sat down while they should answer, and being sleepy, I dosed off at the step. I had not been there long, before three or four other consta- bles- took me into custody. Making n...
Extracts from Dr. Parmeter's History of Australia. A SHORT REVIEW OF SUCCESSIVE GOVERNORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 November 1826
Extracts from Dr. Parmeter's History of Australia. &nbsp; A SHORT REVIEW OF SUCCESSIVE GOVERNORS. THERE is no more pleasing office than that of commemorating the works or actions of our benefactors. WE scan not with a critical eye the motives in which they ori- ginated. The labour would be superfluous. We will take it for granted that beneficent acts are the results of good feelings, aided by the power of good sense; and therefore without further preface pass we to the immediate object of this chapter. THE first Ruler of this Colony has left a name behind him con- spicuous for assiduity and discretion, and surmounting the well- known difficulties which were unavoidably experienced in the first foundation of a settlement on these shores ; and not less remark- able for firmness and justice. His plan of Sydney is well known, and has been acted upon with much advantage by his Successors ; &nbsp; and his publication on this early part of the Colony, is, and per- haps ever...
DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 November 1826
The proprietor of the windmill at the top of Char- lotte place, appeared before the magistrates on Saturday, upon a summons, to answer the complaint of a Mr. C. J. Bullivant, whose child had received a severe bite from a large dog, who was allowed to roam at large unchained. Much altercation and argument, pro and con, were re- sorted to on either side, but the corroboratory voice of divers constables, ejaculating their impressions as to the veracity of the complainant, founded on sore experi- ence, turned the scale against the miller. The injury &nbsp; sustained not being very serious, and a repetition of it subjecting him to prosecution for nuisance, it was hoped would operate as a caution to him. The complaint was dismissed on his paying the expenses. We lament to say, that mortality still pervails to a melancholy extent. The catarrh or influenza, seldom proves fatal to those who have youth on their side. Old age and its attendant debilities in few instances is able to wit...

To TILE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR,; Sydney, 30th of Nov. 1826. . SIn, SOME points connected with the death of Private Sudds, of the 57th Regt. having been published in the Aridrrlian of yesterday, in an incorrect manner, I. think it'advieable, in order that the public should not be further misled through the. me-. dium of the Press, to put you in possession of the simple facts of the case ; and though I have thought proper to withhold my signatuere to this letter, I pledge mysef for the accuracy of. its contents. Sudds was sentenced so be transported to a penil settlement after his trial he was taken ill, and was pl?ed in theapartment at the gaol, allotted for the sick-his sentence was commuted on the roads in chains. . On Wednesday the '22nd, '(being then .recovered) he was re moved from the gaol to the. barracks, and put in chains, si milar to those placed on Thompson, and weighing. ea'actly. 131b.-12 oz. * Sudds became ill on Friday morning, when the chains, w.re'. removed, and he wa...

FIiDAY, DIECEMI3LLgR' 1, 1j52G6. IN Saturdays Gazette, the Coommander-in-Chief has published a General Order on the dismissal of the two soldiers iroum the 57th. We deplore the tact that the Goverior 'of this -.c.tensive Braitnst culonii, the most ditticuit to be manageCd on account of its singular populauliol, and still more .singul:ar government, of any under the crown, should be obglte.i to occupy his valuable time with such very min.,r co.icertna as those which usually appear in, military naotices.
