The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, AUGUST 29th, 1831. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 29 August 1831
The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, AUGUST 29th, 1831. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." Our readers will observe in our pre- sent number, a government notice, an- nouncing the intended establishment of King's Schools at Sydney and Parramatta. We are happy to perceive that the impor- tant subject of Education is making rapid advances in Australia, and trust that the adage of "Knowledge is power" will be verified, as far as regards us colonists, to the extent that is desired by every well disposed and enlightened individual. If the King's Schools adopt a liberal and extended system of education, we have no doubt they will be well suppor- ted, and they shall have our cordial ap- proval. But if intolerance, or any exclu- sive or illiberal system be attempted, we are sure that the colonists of Australia will neither countenance nor support them ; and the formation of these Institutions, which are calculated to promote the best interests of our rising colony, would not only retard the profes...
PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF LORDS, THURSDAY, APRIL 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 29 August 1831
PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; HOUSE OF LORDS, THURSDAY, APRIL 14. &nbsp; The Annual INDEMNITY BILL was read a first time BEER BILL.—The Earl of Malmesbury called the attention of the House to the Beer Bill of last Session, which was injurious to the Country, and moved for a return of the number of licenses. This was opposed by the Lord Chancellor, Lord Carnarvon, and others. The Archbishop of York presented numerous petitions against the Slave Trade. REFORM.—Lord Haddington presented a petition from Edinburgh, praying for Reform ; he thought the time was come, when it might be extended to Scotland, if modified in its details. For 400 years no- thing like popular election had existed in Scotland ; on the whole, he opposed the Bill, as did the Dukes of Buccleugh and Wellington, and the Earl of Carnar- von, who made a powerful speech against it ; whilst Lord King, the Marquis of Lansdown, and the Lord Chancellor, supported it. Lord Wynford reprobated intetference w...

The 91st regiment now in Glasgow, had a fine " Buck," a regimental pet, or gift, from their late Colonel, McDonald, which was accustomed to walk at the head of the regiment, as regularly as the drum- major. Some of the officers lately made a present of the "Buck Soldier" to a gentleman, without con- sulting the soldiers ; but a council of war was imme- diately called, as soon as it was known he had been sent away, thirty of their number went off to the new owner's seat, dressed the " Buck Soldier" in re- gimentals, and brought him to town, amid the re- joicings of the whole regiment, The privates subscribed 1 penny each, and placed him in a stable at their own expense, and are determined to keep him in clover as long as he lives for the honor of the Corps. John Lome, a baker in Woolwich, was lately tried for attempting to poison fifteen persons, being the Jury who composed the Inquest on the bodies of three convicts, who had died on board of the hulks. No reason can be assigned for ...

Extracts from a Letter from the Rev. Henry Montgomery to Daniel O'Connell, Esq. M. P. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 29 August 1831
Extracts from a Letter from the Rev. Henry Montgomery to Daniel O' Connell, Esq. M. P. Sir,—Many of my friends can testify, how intensely mortified I felt, a few weeks ago, by fulsome panegy- rics. Smarting under your degrading adulation, I was disposed to exclaim with Phocion, " What foolish thing have I said, what wicked thing have I done, that he should praise me !"—Last week, however, you .washed away the stain of your approbation, by a tor- rent of abuse ; and my character has regained that station which, I am proud to think, it long held in pub- lic estimation. At this moment you afford a melan- choly, but instructive lesson, to all who would gratify a depraved ambition, or advance their selfish interests, by sacrificing the peace and prosperity of their native land. Although you have lauded me with a disgusting meanness, in order to involve me in your snares, and abused me with a reckless malignity to gratify a dis- appointed resentment, I can assure you that I enter- tertain...

Domestic Entelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 29 August 1831
Domestic Intelligence. ——o—— THE DOMAIN.—This favorite spot, the only pleasant walk in Sydney, is now rendered com- paratively useless to the pedestrian, by its being made a drive for carriages. The inner domain is still exclusive—from the public. What are the inhabitants to do ? we think it hard, that without ceremony, they should be curtailed in the small enjoyments the town affords. The public at large suffers, but more particularly our juvenile popu- lation ; we trust that this unfair mode of vi- tiating public property, will be quickly abolished. ——BATHS.— It is a matter of regret, that we have no bathing places for the fair sex of Sydney At present females are debarred from this en- joyment, which in many cases is necessary to restore health, and by all would be considered as an addition to their comforts, and we think it therefore deserves the attention of Government. ——Last week, Madame Rens, who formerly re- sided in George-street, was fined ten pounds for buying slop cloth...
