Extracts from the Australian of the 29th ult. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 1 December 1826

Extracts from the Australian of the 29th ult. " THERE appeared to us to be something so contradie tory and so self evidently wrong in " The general orwder' which was published on Saturday last with the Brigade Major's signature attached, that we resolved to examine its merits with rather more than ordinary scrutiny. ~WE were really so startled at seeing a notification " to commute the sentence," followed by the declaration of .an intention to inflict additional punishiment, that our mind involuntarily doubted for an instant if the English vocabulary of law terms had been introduced into this Colony,-if words were liable to the same inter pretation here as in England,-or if, indeed, the law itself of England were really in force in this Colony. We had always thought, that to commute, was in effect, to mitigate; and for the first time discoftered, on peru sing the General Order, that there were those who did not entertain precisely the same opinion. To commute is certainly to make a c...

HEAD QUARTERS, SYDNEY, 22nd. NOVEMBER, 1826. THE LIEUTENANT GENERAL regrets it has become   his Duty to expose, to the Indignation of the Troops, two Soldiers, who have committed an Offence, under Circumstances which leave little Doubt that their Object was to obtain their Discharge from the Service. PRIVATES Joseph Sudds,and Patrick Thomson, of the 57th Regiment, have been convicted of a Robbery in the Town of Sydney, committed in open Day, and with out even an Attempt to conceal the Fact, and have been sentenced to be transported to a penal Settlement for a Period of Seven Years. The LIEUTENANT GENERAL, in Virtue of the Power with which he is vested as Governor in Chief, has thougt fit to commute the Sentence, and to direct that Privates Joseph Sudds and Patrick Thompson shall be worked in Chains, on the Public Roads, for the Period of their Sentence-after which they will rejoin their Corps. THE Garrison has been assembled to witness the Degradation of these Men, from...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 1 December 1826

THE exertions which are making in France in favour of the Greeks are at once gratifying and astonishing. During the last fortnight the subscriptions have been so numerous, that is has been found impossible to publish the names of all the donors; at the office of the Consti- gutionel alone, upwards of 12,000 francs have been subscribed within ten days. Plays and concerts have been given in different part of France, by amateurs, the receipts of which have been paid over to the Greek Committe; these receipts in many instances have ex- ceeded 350 sterling, and in no case has the amount fallen short of anticipation. At Perpignan, the members of the Masonic lodge appointed a deputation, which went from house to house soliciting donations, and met with only one refusal, which was from the Bishop! THE Lord Chancellor labours under a very strange delusion respecting Chancery Affidavits. Every body, who has the misfortune to know any thing about the matter, knows that Chancery Affidavits cont...

. SELECT POETRY.! (The following'Lines are said to be the production of a twell known Nobleman now abroad, and were addressed by hinm to a Female, tchese affections he obtained, and afterwards deserted.) If I forsake thee, early be my tomb, My bed untended, and unwept my doom ! Around my grave let no fresh verdure spring, No plaintiff bird within its precincts sing ! Let no fair flower adorn my turfy bed, No violets spring, no roses lift the head ! But there let weeds and noxious night-shade thrive There, only what to life is fatal, live: So shall MANKIND avoid the hated place, Shunned and detested by the BRUTAL race All but the shrieking owl and bat obscene, Shall fly the relics of a thing so mean. But if-as Heaven is witness such shall be Death only can divorce my heal t from thee ; If this Tond breast shall heave its parting sigh, Loth only, as 'tis leaving thee, to die; Then let affection drop the pious tear, The tribute sacred to the heart sincere; Let not the gaudy pomps of se...
